Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], October 29 (ANI/BusinessWire India): Embassy Office Parks REIT, India's first listed REIT and the largest office REIT in Asia by area, reported results today for the quarter and half-year ended September 30, 2021.
Michael Holland, Chief Executive Officer of Embassy REIT, said, "We are delighted to announce yet another strong quarter of continued robust business performance. We delivered our strongest leasing activity since the start of the pandemic, we successfully completed a significant Rs 4,600 crores debt raise at an impressive 6.5% interest rate and we received global recognition for our continuing commitment to sustainability. We have reconfirmed our full year guidance as we see multiple tailwinds for our business - India's stabilizing Covid situation, a reviving office leasing market especially in our core Bangalore market, and occupiers' business-expansion driven by global tech mega-trends. These positive trends are clear to our expanding investor base which has tripled in the last twelve months."
