CLAS' properties continued to achieve strong operating performance as international travel recovers. Revenue per available unit (REVPAU) increased 81% year-on-year (y-o-y) to S$143 for 2H 2022. 4Q 2022 REVPAU rose 78% y-o-y to S$155, reaching pre-pandemic levels in line with 4Q 2019 pro forma REVPAU. All of CLAS' key markets registered quarter-on-quarter REVPAU growth, with the biggest improvements in Japan, Australia and the USA.
With the strong portfolio performance, CLAS increased its Distribution per Stapled Security (DPS) for 2H 2022 by 47% y-o-y to 3.33 cents. DPS for FY 2022 increased 31% y-o-y to 5.67 cents; and excluding one-off items, adjusted DPS for FY 2022 rose 106% y-o-y to 4.79 cents.
Ms Serena Teo, Chief Executive Officer of the Managers of CLAS said: "While macroeconomic challenges remain, we are cautiously optimistic of the continued recovery in the hospitality industry. We expect CLAS to continue to benefit from the reopening of more destinations and the pent-up demand for travel. In the coming year, we will be carrying out asset enhancement initiatives (AEI) for four properties in Singapore, France, Germany and UK. The AEI will uplift the value and profitability of these properties and further enhance our income streams.
"We remain prudent in our capital management approach as we seek opportunities to reconstitute our portfolio. Our latest acquisition of a rental housing property in Fukuoka will enhance CLAS' income resilience. It is situated in one of the fastest growing cities in Japan and our existing rental housing properties in Fukuoka have performed well." added Ms Teo.
