(1) FY 2017's distributable income included a one-off capital distribution of approximately $1.7 million for the month of December 2016 arising from the later completion of Keppel DC Singapore 3 on 20 January 2017 and where the vendor had agreed that all the rights and obligations shall pass to the REIT as if completion had occurred on 1 December 2016. The distributable income also included Keppel DC Singapore 3's Capex Reserves.
(2) DPU was computed based on the distributable income to Unitholders and had excluded the Capex Reserves.
(3) Excluding the one-off capital distribution of approximately $1.7 million (equivalent to 0.15 cents per Unit) paid to the Unitholders, FY 2017's adjusted DPU would be 6.97 cents. This is higher than FY 2016's adjusted DPU of 6.68 cents after adjusting for the impact of the pro-rata Preferential Offering in November 2016 which lowered DPU by approximately 0.36 cents per Unit each for both 3Q 2016 and 4Q 2016, and a one-off net property tax refund recorded in FY 2016 which increased DPU by approximately 0.18 cents.
