Cromwell Property Group raised roughly A$228 million at the completion of its 2-for-13 accelerated nonrenounceable entitlement offer of stapled securities, through which it targeted as much as A$300 million.
The diversified real estate investment trust raised approximately A$46 million at the Dec. 13 close of the retail portion of the entitlement offer. Managing Director and CEO Paul Weightman said together with the institutional entitlement offer, which raised approximately A$181 million, the total amount raised surpassed commitments of A$210 million from major security holders.
Under the retail entitlement offer, applications from eligible retail security holders reflected a participation rate of roughly 39%.
The about 47 million securities that will be issued under the retail entitlement offer will begin normal trading Dec. 20, according to a release.
