Ascott REIT's mega discounted rights issue.

Friday, March 17, 2017


Hi AK
With the recent rights issue of Ascott reit, i read that the DPU and NAV per unit will most likely drop after this event.
Can you share your thoughts about this(the reason for this rights issue)?

Hi AY,
I don't like Ascott Residence Trust. I don't have this.
They are always raising funds but I don't see performance improving.

I feel that unit holders would have been better off without the acquisitions and the mega rights issue.

Reference:
"Ascott Reit unit holders will have the option of purchasing up to 481.7 million rights units at a ratio of 29 rights units for every 100 units they own. The rights units will be issued at 91.9 cents - a 21.5 per cent discount to the closing price of $1.17 per unit on Monday. Ascott Reit expects yields of up to 4.5 per cent for the acquisition of AOS and 5.4 per cent for the German properties
