Additional Information: The Fund Manager has received additional requests from tenants to partially waive contractual rents as a result of the current pandemic. The total value of such requests has reached circa. SR24.3 million or 20.3% of the total annual rent. The Fund Manager has reviewed these requests in light of the applicable laws and contractual procedures to protect the interests of Unitholders on a commercial basis. Accordingly, the Fund Manager evaluated each request independently to ascertain the loss to the tenants due to the pandemic and managed to settle 82.8% of these requests. Negotiations are still ongoing for the remaining requests, and the Fund Manager reserves the right to take all regulatory actions deemed appropriate in case no settlement is agreed with the remaining requests. As a result of the current and expected settlements, the Fund Manager expects improved rental collection levels during the coming period.

Based on the above and on the current situation, the Fund Manager does not expect the Fund’s annual expected rent to decrease by more than 5% or SR6 million. To preserve the liquidity of the Fund and as a precaution against difficult economic conditions, the Fund Manager decided to reduce the quarterly cash dividend for the second quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2020. Also as a precaution, the Fund Manager managed to reschedule the financing profits due on the Fund with a total amount of SR16 million. These measures were adopted to put the Fund on a solid foundation to continue successfully.

The Fund Manager confirms his intention to continue with the quarterly distributions in the future despite the challenges

The Fund Manager kindly reminds the Unitholders to update their information with their banks to ensure the current cash distributions are deposited directly into their accounts.
