Given the AGM is regarded as an important forum for investors to engage with the Board and senior management team, this event provides an opportunity for retail unitholders, especially, to gain a fuller understanding of ESR-LOGOS REIT's operations and key strategic plans.

7. Receiving Feedback

As an on-going process, the IRCC team will survey its stakeholders especially the investment community from time to time to gauge external sentiments, either by way of formal meetings, or through seeking verbal opinion during occasions of contact with them. External opinion will be sought not only on operational and performance matters, but also on governance and strategic issues.

8. Handling of Complaints

Recognising that factors affecting the unit price performance of ESR-LOGOS REIT are often beyond management control and subject to market conditions, the IRCC team will nevertheless endeavour to address any enquiries of investor or unitholder received and formulate an appropriate response.

Upon receipt of complaint or feedback, the IRCC Team will:

(a) Assess the content / severity of the complaint based on the following criteria:

  • Content: upon receiving of the complaint, it is to be reviewed and assessed by the Head of Capital Markets and Investor Relations and escalated to the Chief Executive Officer or designate on technical matters to determine whether the complaint has merit or validity. Examples of such considerations are: Does the complaint refer to something that the Manager (or Property Manager) ought to have done or not done, or is it outside of the Manager’s control? Are there any legal ramifications?
  • Severity: considerations include any possible financial impact to ESR-LOGOS REIT, does it affect unitholders, reputation of ESR-LOGOS REIT / the Manager etc.

(b) Depending on the content / severity of the feedback, the IRCC team may escalate the issue to the senior management team. Where there is major financial or reputational impact to ESR-LOGOS REIT, the Board must be notified of the complaint and be kept apprised of the status of the complaint.

(c) Assign appropriate team members or direct to the appropriate external vendors to provide response.

(d) Acknowledge complaint within 2 working days and provide update on the status of the feedback within 7 working days from acknowledgement date. All complaints should be resolved within 14 working days. If due to unforeseen circumstances that resolution cannot be completed within 14 working days, status update on the complaint should be provided to the investor / unitholder every 7 working days until completion of resolution

(e) Summary of complaints should be tabled to the Audit, Risk Management and Compliance Committee and Board.

(f) Maintain records of all complaints and its handling / resolution (including those involving the external vendors).
