Charter Hall WALE Limited, in its capacity as responsible entity of the managed investment schemes comprising Charter Hall Long WALE REIT (ASX:CLW) (CLW or the REIT), is pleased to announce the successful completion of the institutional component of its 1 for 8.1 accelerated non-renounceable entitlement offer (Institutional Entitlement Offer) announced on 5 December 2018.

The Institutional Entitlement Offer raised approximately $81 million (including approximately $24 million worth of entitlements that were taken up by Charter Hall Group). The retail component of the  entitlement offer (Retail Entitlement Offer) will raise approximately $44 million, taking the total size of the entitlement offer to approximately $125 million (Entitlement Offer).

The Entitlement Offer is fully underwritten by UBS AG, Australia Branch.

New securities issued under the Entitlement Offer will be issued at a fixed price of $4.05 per security and will rank equally with existing CLW securities including full entitlement to the distribution for the three months to 31 December 2018 of 6.5 cents per security.

The proceeds from the Entitlement Offer will be used to partially fund the acquisition of 27 agri-logistics properties and associated transaction costs.

Institutional Entitlement Offer

The Institutional Entitlement Offer was well supported by existing institutional securityholders with approximately 91% take-up by eligible institutional securityholders. The shortfall under the Institutional Entitlement Offer attracted demand from both existing and new securityholders. Approximately 20 million securities will be issued under the Institutional Entitlement Offer.

New Securities issued under the Institutional Entitlement Offer will settle on Tuesday, 18 December 2018, with allotment and normal trading to occur on Wednesday, 19 December 2018.

The Retail Entitlement Offer will open on Tuesday, 11 December 2018 and close at 5:00pm (AEDT) on Thursday, 20 December 2018. Retail securityholders who hold securities in the REIT as at 7:00pm (AEDT) on the record date of Friday, 7 December 2018 and have a registered address in Australia or New Zealand (Eligible Retail Securityholders) will be invited to participate in the Retail Entitlement Offer at the same offer price (being $4.05) and offer ratio (being 1 for 8.1) as the participants in the Institutional Entitlement Offer.

Eligible retail securityholders will also have the opportunity to apply and pay for their entitlements before 5.00pm (Sydney time) on Monday, 17 December 2018 to have their new securities allotted on the same day as securities issued under the Institutional Entitlement Offer.

Eligible retail securityholders who take up their entitlement in full may also apply for additional new securities in excess of their entitlement (to the extent other eligible retail securityholders do not take up their full Entitlement) up to 50% of their full entitlement.1
