Sale of remaining 50% interest in 205 Queen St

Kiwi Income Property Trust advises that Auckland City Holdings Limited (ACHL) has exercised its right to purchase the Trust’s remaining 50% interest in its Auckland office complex at 205 Queen Street for a purchase price of $56.3 million, in line with the asset’s 31 March 2014 independent valuation. Settlement is due to occur on 3 June 2014.

In October 2013, the Trust entered into a sale and purchase agreement with ACHL under which ACHL acquired its initial 50% interest in the building for $47.5 million. That sale settled on 31 January 2014. As part of this agreement, ACHL was required to acquire the remaining 50% interest in the building on or before 31 March 2017.
