Mapletree Commercial Trust - VivoCity remains the Star
Positive rent reversions from previously negotiated leases at VivoCity kicked in in 3Q, which together with stronger GTO rentals, drove a 10% qoq jump in VivoCity revenue in 3Q. We remain positive on VivoCity, MCT’s largest asset, underpinned by its healthy operating stats. 3QFY13/9M13 met our expectations but was above street, forming 26/75% of our FY13 forecast. We tweak FY13 DPU but retain FY14-15 DPUs. We maintain Outperform with an unchanged DDM-based target price (discount rate: 6.9%). We see catalysts from stronger-than-expected rental reversions.
