2023 ‘unusually difficult year’, but CLI’s CEO is ‘confident’ about what is to come
” Although these declines may be non-cash in nature, they will certainly still register CLI’s full-year results. This is although that our underlying operating productivity remains to be durable and our organization units continue to position firmly for the future. Our operating profit even stays solid, driven by our cost income, and we are relocating the ideal course,” stated Lee.
On Dec 8, 2023, CLI publicized that it anticipates fair value declines on its profile of investment properties, primarily attributable to the investment real estates in China, Australia, Europe, the UK and the US. The reasonable value losses are non-cash in nature and arose primarily because of higher capitalisation prices and weaker market leanings, said the team.
Therefore, CLI presumes to report a considerable reduction in its total patmi for FY2023 on a y-o-y basis.
He adds that he is “of the view that many business might deal to navigate a persistently high interest rate environment and a politically divided environment.”
” We should be ready to turn this right into our advantage. Already, we are observing some interesting opportunities emerge which would certainly not have actually been available when times were great,” he went on. “The key is at no time to squander a situation. We will certainly continue to guarantee we have the balance sheet and stand ready to make bold relocate to carry a step improvement to our companies. We will pay attention to fulfilling the demands of our customers and in so doing, we will develop a base of recurring fee income and solid enterprise value in line with our vision to be the recommended international real asset manager creating positive sustainable influence.”
The year 2023 has actually been “unusually tough”, said Capitaland Investment’s (CLI) group CEO Lee Chee Koon in a New Year news to employee. In spite of doing the job “exceptionally hard” and continuing to be clear and centered on the group’s targets, CLI will encounter asset value declines for the FY2023 ended Dec 31, 2023, across the various markets it is operating in.
That said, Lee states he remains positive regarding the future, as he sees “amazing chances for progress in each of our business verticals”, specifically in Asia Pacific.
Stocks in CLI closed at $3.16 on Dec 29, 2023.
In addition to his message, Lee cited numerous geopolitical and economic headwinds consisting of the recurring Russia-Ukraine battle and the unfolding situation in the Middle East that will effect on just how the team can move and develop.
