CityDev to inject 3 properties into S$1.1b investment platform

SINGAPORE: Real estate giant City Developments (CityDev) will inject three of its office properties into an investment platform, in a move that will free up hundreds of millions of dollars in funds for new investments.

In a statement on Tuesday (Dec 15), CityDev said the three properties are Central Mall (Office Tower), 7 & 9 Tampines Grande and Manulife Centre.

The properties - valued at around S$1.1 billion - will be sold to a joint office investment platform co-owned by CityDev and Alpha Asia Macro Trends Fund II (AAMTF II), which is managed by Keppel's Alpha Investment Partners.

CityDev Executive Chairman Kwek Leng Beng said: "Over the past two years, we have been advancing our two-pronged diversification strategy of developing new overseas and investment platforms. By building on the success of our first PPS transaction last year, this new initiative allows us to recycle capital for our growth plans."

PPS is an acronym for Profit Participation Securities (PPS), a sort of investment structure that allows a firm to sell future earnings from its properties while retaining control.

According to CityDev, the total aggregated value of the securities issued in the PPS transaction is S$333.5 million, comprising S$133.3 million of securities subscribed by a wholly-owned subsidiary of CityDev and a contribution of S$200.2 million by AAMTF II.

DBS and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation (OCBC) will provide S$750.1 million in senior loan facilities.

CityDev did not say how much new funding it will raise from this transaction. It will, however, continue to manage the three office properties, which currently has a strong occupancy of 98 per cent.

The PPS announced by CityDev on Tuesday is the firm's second. Last year, it partnered with Blackstone’s Tactical Opportunities Fund and CIMB Bank for a S$1.5 billion PPS that invests in the cash flows of its upscale properties in Sentosa Cove, called the Quayside Collection.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
