Charter Hall Social Infrastructure REIT (ASX:CQE) today announced the sale and settlement of 26 New Zealand childcare properties for NZD $36.9 million. The sale portfolio consists of the smaller New Zealand properties that CQE owned which had a WALE of 5.7 years as at 31 March 2020. The sale price represents a selling yield of 6.6% and an 8.7% discount to book value for these properties. 

CQE continues to own a further 20 New Zealand childcare properties with a combined WALE of 7.4  years as at 31 March 2020.

Travis Butcher, CQE’s Fund Manager commented:

“The sale is a good outcome that reduces CQE’s exposure to the New Zealand market. The remaining New Zealand centres owned by CQE are welllocated, predominantly purpose-built and leased to BestStart, New Zealand’s largest childcare  operator. Despite the current challenging environment, we continue to optimise the portfolio to ensure  the best outcome for CQE investors.”
