I'm pretty sure FCOT had earlier notice than 22nd Sep => that's why they were able to market and secure a new tenant for 24,000 sqft to be vacated by HPE.

The fact that FCOT is still in negotiations with HPS at this late stage (~2 months from 30 Nov) suggests that HPS is probably looking to reduce their footprint in Alexandra Technopark as well.

Good point!

This event we are seeing is a very true reflection of a TENANT CONCENTRATION RISK (TRC) materialising into a real negative event !!! Tenant Concentration Risks are very real,... bros,....

The 'irritating' thing here is : WHY DID HP ENTERPRISE ANNOUNCE SO LATE TO US ? We don't have a chance to mitigate this problem now ,... Moving out at end-September after announcing at EIGHT DAYS EARLIER ? Pls enlighten me if I am wrong in my presumptions here,...

Otherwise, the Landlord has every right to 'penalise' HP Enterprise with TWO MONTHS of dividends to be withheld,.... Unitholders has rights here too,....

"Between 2002 and 2015, Hewlett-Packard announced more than 120,000 layoffs."

     Of which 60,000 since 2012 (counting the current 5K)

      "We are nearing the end of our 2012 restructuring program and 3,900 people exited in Q3. By the end of Q4, we expect to exceed our prior estimate of 55,000 people to exit the company by up to 5%"

"Hewlett-Packard Enterprise agreed to sell its software business to Micro Focus in a $8.8 billion deal that shrinks the Silicon Valley pioneer again"

Though not all are in Singapore, how much space does HPE still needs after the dust settles?

HPE and HPS are not great companies to lease to anymore,... lots of risks there,.... better rent at a higher rate to 'compensate' fro the risks involved,....
