FundSource AA rated Pacific Property aims to raise $37.44m for two industrial properties
Today PMG is bringing to market its largest retail Offer in its diversified, unlisted commercial property fund, Pacific Property Fund Limited (Pacific Property).
Managed by PMG, this is the sixth Offer Pacific Property has brought to market since its inception in 2013.
The company is aiming to raise $37.44 million in new investor capital by 7 December 2018 to assist with the acquisition of two quality industrial properties for its portfolio, 33 Vickery Street in Hamilton, tenanted by Alto Packaging and 31 El Prado Drive in Palmerston North, which is well-known online retailer EziBuy’s main distribution centre.
Pacific Property is offering investors 36 million shares at $1.04 cents per share in Pacific Property, targeting a strong gross cash distribution return (net of expenses but before tax) of 7.25 cents per share for the full financial year to 31 March 2020. Starting with a minimum investment of 20,000 shares ($20,800) and multiples of 10,000 shares ($10,400) thereafter.
PMG chief executive, Scott McKenzie says, the additional property acquisitions are in line with Pacific Property’s strategy for ongoing growth and diversification and PMG’s continued confidence in the solidly performing commercial property sector.
“Unlisted commercial property funds have been one of the best performing asset classes in the last 3 to 5 years compared to 6 term deposits (3.25%), residential property returns (4.30%) and NZX 50 gross yields (5.20%) over the past 12 months*,” says McKenzie.
“This coupled with the growing interest we are seeing in Pacific Property from both existing and new investors, as well as more enquiry from residential property investors, is what has driven us to launch this Offer.
“Pacific Property provides investors with the opportunity to diversify their investment portfolio into a proven commercial property investment entity which is underpinned by land, bricks and mortar. The Company has multiple tenants across multiple buildings which lowers risk, provides investors with confidence of more regular cash flow and is a robust investment vehicle to withstand any future economic conditions,” he says.
Following the successful completion of this Offer and acquisition of the Hamilton and Palmerston North properties, the total value of Pacific Property will be $183m, with the fund holding 12 properties, tenanted by a mix of 76 tenants on a weighted average lease term (WALT) of 6.40 years.
