Market News In 2 Minutes @ 31th March 2015

As stock investors (even though a small one), it is important to keep abreast with the latest financial and market news. Since I am in it, I thought it might be worthwhile to share it out with my readers too.

Hence, I started this "Market News In 2 Minutes" series.

Following are the "Market News In 2 Minutes" for today :

1. REITS : Ascendas Estate Investment Trust (A17U) - Has completed the acquisition of The Kendall at 50 Science Park Road for a purchase consideration of $112 million from Singapore Science Park, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the sponsor of A-REIT, Ascendas Group. The acquisition will enhance A-REIT’s portfolio with another high quality science park property that will support the exclusive community of researchers, engineers and support staff in the Singapore Science Park. The acquisition is the 27th property that A-REIT has acquired from its sponsor since its IPO in 2002 and is expected to generate net property income yield of approximately 6.8 percent of the post-acquisition costs in the first year.  (source : Shares Investment)

Expected to be completed by April 2016, this is the third project Rotary has undertaken, spanning work across the plant’s production, storage and related facilities. The contract showcases Rotary’s continuous move up the value chain, enabling the company to maintain margins and set itself apart from the competitors. (source : Shares Investment)
