Charter Hall Group (ASX:CHC) announces that it has created a partnership with GIC, Singapore’s
sovereign wealth fund, to acquire a 49% stake in the Ampol Property Trust which will own 203
convenience retail properties throughout Australia.
The Ampol portfolio will have initial lease terms ranging from 11 through to 22 years, a 19.2 year WALE and 10 year initial option terms, plus multiple 5 year options thereafter. The properties will be subject to CPI annual rent reviews, with minimum 2% and maximum 5% increases per annum.
Charter Hall Group will own 5% or $34 million of the Charter Hall partnership, or a look through interest of 2.45% in the Ampol portfolio.
Managing Director and Group CEO David Harrison said:
“This off market transaction follows regular dialogue with the Ampol team over the past 2 years and reinforces our confidence in the convenience retail sector. The extension of our 15-year relationship with GIC further grows the breadth of this multi- sector relationship and reflects our strong market position and continued conviction for Long WALE assets with strong underlying investment fundamentals.”
