Keppel DC REIT appears to be temporising over challenges facing its China assets, and remains non-committal towards stating when it will decide to terminate the lease with a delinquent tenant.
The REIT first disclosed on 15 December that it has issued a letter of demand to this tenant, Guangdong Bluesea Data Development, in relation to the lease at Guangdong Data Centres (GDCs) 1, 2 & 3 - currently the only assets it owns in China.
The letter of demand seeks to recover sums in arrears to-date of RMB 48.3 million (SGD9 million) and this includes rent charges for four months and late payment-related fees.
