Sasseur REIT Wins Best Retail REIT, Best Investor Relations and Best CEO at Asia Pacific REITs Awards 2019

SINGAPORE, Oct 1, 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - Sasseur Asset Management Pte. Ltd. ("SAMPL"), the manager of SGX-listed Sasseur Real Estate Investment Trust ("Sasseur REIT"), is pleased to announce that Sasseur REIT has won three major awards - Best Retail REIT (Platinum), Best Investor Relations (Gold) and Best CEO (Platinum) - at the 6th Annual REITs Asia Pacific Best of the Breed REITs Awards 2019. Sasseur REIT, which owns four retail outlet malls in China, beat a strong field of Singapore REITs to secure the coveted awards.

Sasseur REIT Wins Best Retail REIT, Best Investor Relations and Best CEO at Asia Pacific REITs Awards 2019

Best Retail REIT (Platinum) in Singapore (less than US$1 billion in market capitalisation)

The criteria for Best Retail REIT was based on financial performance, market performance and corporate governance. In addition, the quality of underlying assets and the REIT manager as well as the adequacy of risk management policies and methodology were taken into account. The REIT was also assessed on its sustainability of performance over the long term.

Since its IPO on the Singapore Exchange in March 2018 and listing as the first outlet mall REIT in Asia, Sasseur REIT has continued to outperform its projections quarter after quarter. Its strong fundamentals and reliable REIT management led to steadily growing sales and Distribution per Unit ("DPU"), which helped Sasseur REIT clinch the top prize for this category.

Over the past year, Sasseur REIT has also bagged four prestigious awards from financial publications. Most recently, Sasseur REIT was named REIT company of the year (Singapore) 2019 by International Investor Magazine.

Best Investor Relations (Gold) in Singapore

For this category, Sasseur REIT was recognised for the effective, timely and accurate communication and dissemination of information to stakeholders, media and the community. To achieve this, Sasseur REIT consistently engaged with investors and the media through multiple platforms such as SGXNet, its own website, and through face-to-face meetings at quarterly retail, investor and media briefings.

Sasseur REIT further cultivated its brand recognition through its significant community involvement and engagement on social media platforms, which allowed for more casual interactions with investors while keeping them updated with its corporate developments. SAMPL signed up to be SGX Bull Charge premier partner with a donation of S$300,000 earlier this year as part of its corporate social responsibility effort.

Best CEO (Platinum) in Singapore (REITs with less than US$1 billion in market capitalisation)

CEO of SAMPL, Mr Anthony Ang performed over and above his duties to clinch the top prize. He has been recognised for the outstanding corporate financial results achieved during his term, as well as the high level of communication and engagement with shareholders and staff alike. Under his direction, Sasseur REIT was one of the top-performing REITs in Singapore, and it remains committed to reviewing its strategies and innovating to continuously outperform itself with each new quarter. While he was CEO of Fortune REIT, Anthony garnered the "Best CEO" award 2013 and 2014 by FinanceAsia.

Mr Anthony Ang, CEO of SAMPL, said, "The honour of this recognition by REITs Asia Pacific Best of the Breeds Awards further solidifies Sasseur REIT's reputation as a top-performing REIT in Singapore and the region. I would like to credit these awards to the hard work and dedication of all members of the Sasseur team, constant guidance by Chairman Xu and support of our board of directors and Sasseur Group, our sponsor. These awards also strengthen our resolve to improve our product, service and internal corporate standards to reach the highest level."
