Keppel Infrastructure Trust distributable income up 15.8%YoY to $222.5m in FY2022

This is due to new acquisitions and the performance of Ixom.

Keppel Infrastructure Trust (KIT) saw a 15.8% year-on-year (YoY) increase in distributable income to $222.5m in the financial year 2022 on the back of new acquisitions, steady portfolio performance and a record year at its industrial business in Australia and New Zealand, Ixom.

Ixom’s contribution came from the manufactured chemicals, construction, mining, dairy, and water treatment segments. It also completed three bolt-on acquisitions during the period which includes Bituminous Products in the construction sector, and Aromatic Ingredients and Pure Ingredients in the life sciences sector.

“The strategic review of Ixom is ongoing. While the macro uncertainties and volatilities have made investors more cautious, the Trustee-Manager continues to see keen interest in Ixom, which has been a creditable investment for KIT, delivering attractive and growing returns since 2019,” it said.
