For its fiscal 2022 (FY2022) ended 31 March 2022, NetLink NBN Trust reported a 2.5% year on year increase in revenue to S$377.6 million.
The better revenue was due to a higher number of connections, with non-residential fibre connections rising from 48,100 in FY2021 to 50,300 in FY2022.
Despite net profit dipping by 3.7% year on year to S$91.3 million, the group’s distribution per unit (DPU) inched up 1% year on year to S$0.0513.
The fibre provider’s units provide a 5.5% historical distribution yield.
