Therefore, this alliance is in addition to the trust's future projects, among which Mitikah, Tapachula (commercial) and the expansion of Galerias Valle Oriente stand out.
Although the FIBRA's debt amounts to 135,095.7 million pesos, with a leverage level (LTV) of 43.5%, this quarter was characterized by the retention of cash set aside for the distribution of dividends at 0.41 pesos per CBFI, which is equivalent to 65% of the Funds Generated by Operations (FFO).
