According to the statement issued on Dec 1, DBS Trustee acknowledged that the removal of the current manager will serve the interests of EHT’s stapled securityholders as the present circumstances of EHT requires that “any recapitalisation and restructuring proposal be presented” to the stapled securityholders as soon as possible.

SCCPRE Hospitality REIT Management was eventually chosen after a three-month-long request for proposal (RFP) process due to the SC Capital Group’s track record of managing and delivering strong asset performances including turning around the Japan Hotel REIT.

The company was also chosen for SC Capital Group’s network of relationships with various players in the hospitality sector, its track record in raising capital from its financial partners for its private fund and listed REIT platforms, as well as other reasons.
