Market voices on:

Panote Sirivadhanabhakdi, Group CEO of Frasers Property, said: "Our strategy of strengthening our recurring income base continues to feature prominently in our results. During the reporting period, maiden contributions from the group's industrial and logistics parks in Continental Europe and business parks in the United Kingdom helped to anchor operating results and provided stability against the inherent lumpiness of development income."

Looking ahead, the group will "maintain its efforts to build on its development activities in a measured manner" in its two biggest markets Singapore and Australia. In key markets in Europe and the rest of Asia, the group will continue to explore prospects to "deepen its presence by leveraging its core expertise".
