Aventus Retail Property Fund's responsible entity, Aventus Capital Ltd., completed its underwritten 1-for-4.3 accelerated nonrenounceable institutional entitlement offer.
The institutional component of the offering raised approximately A$162 million, while A$53 million is expected from the retail component, which will take the total size of the entitlement offering to A$215 million.
New units for both components of the offering are priced at A$2.32 apiece and will rank pari passu with, and trade as, existing units on issue starting June 29.
Settlement for the institutional entitlement offer is expected to take place June 13, while allotment and trading on the Australian bourse is set the next day. Meanwhile, the retail entitlement offer will start June 6 and close June 23.
Proceeds from the equity raising will be used as partial payment for the acquisition of two Home Hub centers in Castle Hill and Marsden Park in Sydney, which were purchased for A$436 million.
Macquarie Capital (Australia) Ltd. and UBS AG Australia Branch were tasked as underwriters of the equity raising.
As of May 30, US$1 was equivalent to A$1.34.
