In Hong Kong, Fortune REIT (778) warned shareholders that it expected a net loss for the six months to end-June 2020 after the value of its portfolio fell about 6% amid adverse market conditions and COVID-19.
The REIT said the value of its portfolio as of end-June 2020 was HK$2.5bn lower than the HK$42.82bn recorded at the end of last year.
“Notwithstanding the above, as Fortune REIT’s portfolio malls are held as long-term investments for stable and recurring income and the above fair value loss is non-cash in nature, there will be no effect on the operating cash flow and income available for distribution of Fortune REIT,” the REIT’s manager said.
