Property for Industry Announces $69.5M Portfolio Acquisition

Property for Industry Has Today Announced a $69.5 Million Portfolio Acquisition And $70 Million Equity Raise.


• Acquisition of a portfolio of nine quality properties for $69.5 million

• The portfolio has a weighted average lease term (“WALT”) of 13.9 years, 100% occupancy, attractive lease terms and a passing yield of 7.22%

• The acquisition is to be funded by approximately $70 million of new equity via a fully underwritten pro rata renounceable rights issue

• The acquisition and equity raising is expected to increase PFI’s WALT by 0.6 years and reduce pro forma gearing to 32.3%

• Low site coverage of ~25% across the sites provides for significant medium to long-term development potential
