Speaking on the results, Mr. Vinod Rohira, Chief Executive Officer, said,

“After recording one of the best years of leasing in FY22, the tailwinds continue to grow stronger as we enter the new financial year. Our strategy of upgrading our offerings during downtime and implementing the best asset management practices has allowed us to benefit from the anticipated demand upswing. The committed occupancy of the portfolio has risen by 130 bps QoQ to 85.6% as we leased 0.9msf during the quarter. The demand recovery initially led by the large occupiers is now seeing a much broad-based momentum. We expect a stronger recovery in the second half of the year as a greater percentage of employees return to their offices.”
