The building was purchased in Aug 2015 when sgd:aud were almost on par. For a 14-mth holding. I think it's pretty impressive. I doubt they were expecting the opportunity to profit so soon. From the 2015 Annual Report:
"114 William Street was originally developed in 1976 but remains in very good condition largely due to a timeless design, good maintenance and intermittent upgrading carried out by the previous owners. Notwithstanding the good condition of the building, this asset presents Straits Real Estate with value-adding opportunities in a number of ways. Straits Real Estate will proactively manage the asset to update and renew it over the next few years, with the objective of bringing the passing rent to fair market levels to realise the asset’s full protential.

RE: Straits Trading Company
The restructured business looks like a good long term investment.

1. Focus on an asset-light business model for real-estate and hospitality means less capex requirements in future, and better returns
2. Fee-based income streams thro fund & asset management should improve ROE & free cash flows in next few years
3. Diversified real-estate portfolio (REITs, fund management, hard assets etc.)
4. Proxy route to stay invested in ARA Asset Management - one of the best & high-return real estate fund managers in asia (STC holds 20% stake)
5. Trading much below book value. (real book value is possibly much higher)
6. Improving earnings
7. Tin business improving
8. Offers a side-car investment vehicle to ride along with astute and well-connected folks like John Lim and Chew Gek Khim

Negatives
1. Recent earnings growth spurt may not be sustainable
2. Hospitality brands and business not inspiring. Can it become a Starwood or Accor?
3. ROE growth and free cash flows may not happen quickly.

What else can go wrong?
