Shaw and Partners appointed Co-Lead Manager to the $60m capital raising announced by Centuria Metropolitan REIT News05 Dec 2017

Shaw and Partners has been appointed Co-Lead Manager in relation to the equity capital raising announced by Centuria Metropolitan REIT (ASX.CMA).


Centuria Metropolitan REIT is seeking to raise approximately $60m by way of an accelerated 1 for 8.65 non renounceable Entitlement Offer. New securities will be issued at $2.39 per security.


The issue price represents a 2.4% discount to CMA's closing price of $2.45 on 4 December 2017. At the Issue Price, the new securities are forecast to deliver a 7.8% FY18 distributable earnings yield and 7.6% FY18 distribution yield.  New securities issued under the Equity Raising will rank equally with existing securities and be entitled to the full distribution for the quarter ending 31 December 2017.


The proceeds of the offer are being used by CMA to partially fund the acquisition of two properties from separate vendors for a total of A$119.1 million, including:

  • a 50% interest in the office building located at 201 Pacific Highway, St Leonards, NSW for A$85.8 million; and
  • a 100% interest in the office building located at 77 Market Street, Wollongong, NSW for A$33.3 million.


The acquisitions are in line with the REIT's strategy to invest in metropolitan office assets which generate income returns and offer the potential for capital growth through active management.
