(1) The DPU was computed based on the distributable income to Unitholders and had excluded the capital expenditure that was set aside for Keppel DC Singapore 3 (the Capex Reserves). For the financial period from 1 January 2017 to 30 June 2017, eligible Unitholders will receive distribution of 3.63 cents per Unit.

(2) Excluding the one-off capital distribution of approximately $1.7 million (equivalent to 0.15 cents per Unit), 1H 2017's DPU would have been 3.48 cents and the adjusted annualised distribution yield would have been 5.44% and 6.32% based on closing prices of 1H 2017 and 1H 2016 respectively.

(3) 1H 2017's distributable income included a one-off capital distribution of approximately $1.7 million for the month of December 2016 arising from the later completion of Keppel DC Singapore 3 on 20 January 2017 and where the vendor had agreed that all the rights and obligations shall pass to the REIT as if completion had occurred on 1 December 2016. Pursuant to the lease agreement entered into for Keppel DC Singapore 3, the distributable income would also include the Capex Reserves.
