Homegrown Developer and Real Estate Fund Manager EVIA


Secures S$296.3 Million Green Loan for Grade-A Commercial Project,
7 & 9 Tampines Grande

Singapore, 4 June 2019 – Evia Real Estate Management Pte. Ltd. (“EVIA”) said today it has secured a
S$296.3 million four-year green loan to part-finance the acquisition of 7 & 9 Tampines Grande
Singapore, a pair of Grade-A office towers which has secured several certifications for sustainability.

OCBC acted as the sole Green Loan Advisor and, together with DBS, acted as Joint Green Coordinators
for this loan.

The green loan was granted to an EVIA-managed investment company and its partner Metro Holdings
Limited. EVIA’s co-investors include Amcorp Properties Bhd., a listed company on the Main Market of
Bursa Malaysia focused on property investment and development projects . This is the first green debt
instrument secured by EVIA, a Singapore-based real estate developer and institutional fund manager
whose portfolio has exceeded S$4.6 billion.

The 99-year leasehold commercial development has a net lettable area of about 287,596 square feet
including retail outlets on the ground floor. Acquired in April 2019 for S$395 million, the development
was awarded Green Mark (“GM”) Platinum rating from the Singapore Building and Construction
Authority (“BCA”) (re-certified in 2018) and the LEED Gold certificate from the US Green Building
Council.

These accolades demonstrate that the building’s design and management minimise environmental
impact while supporting a circular economy. The development also received the BCA Green Mark
Pearl Prestige Award in 2016 which recognises the owners’ efforts to engage tenants to show
environmental leadership.

“This green loan marks EVIA’s commitment to supporting green and sustainable developments in
Singapore and the region as we embark on our next phase of growth. Our aim is to partner major
financial institutions to co-invest in bigger projects. More than pure financial returns, our focus is on
the environment and sustainability,” said Mr Leslie Lim, Managing Partner of EVIA.

“Through this loan, EVIA has demonstrated its commitment to these attributes. We will continue to
monitor and manage the building’s environmental impact and invest in projects and activities which
will improve the health and well-being of its tenants,” he added. “The borrowing entity, T-Grande
Property Holding Pte Ltd, has prepared a Green Loan Framework to outline the criteria and guidelines
to allocate the loan proceeds in line with Green Loan Principles (2018) by the Loan Market Association
and the Asia Pacific Loan Market Association.”
