Temasek Bonds – Maturity Profile and Coupon

Footnotes:
1 From the year ended 31 March 2020, the applicable accounting standard (IFRS 16: Leases) has required us to record our leases, comprising mainly office rental, on our balance sheet. This means that our lease liabilities and interest expense on lease liabilities are included as part of total debt and interest expense respectively. The credit ratios from the year ended 31 March 2020 reflect this change in accounting standards.
