CapitaLand Ascendas REIT to divest three Australian logistics properties for $64.2 mil

The full sale factor to consider for the three real estates totals up to $64.2 million (A$ 73.0 million) and exemplifies a costs of 6.2% over the total market valuation of the estates of $60.4 million as at Aug 31.

The recommended divestment, that CLAR states lines up with its proactive property administration technique to improve the condition of its portfolio and optimize returns for unitholders, is assumed to be completed in the first quarter of 2024.

Assuming the suggested divestment had indeed been finished on Jan 1, 2022, the proforma influence on CLAR’s net property income (NPI) and distribution per unit (DPU) for the FY2022 concluded Dec 31, 2022, would certainly have caused a decline of $3.9 million and 4 cents, specifically.

Units in CLAR shut 1 cent lower of 0.34% dropping at $2.92 on Dec 20.

After taking off divestment prices, remaining proceeds from the sale are projected to be $60.8 million and could be used for different uses featuring financing committed assets, repaying existing financial obligations, extending lendings to subsidiaries, paying for basic corporate and business assets requirements and making distributions to unitholders.
