Avi Anger, Fund Manager of CLW commented:
“The valuations announced today highlight the quality of the CLW portfolio and the benefits of properties with long leases to strong tenants. All our sectors reported improvements in valuations, with particular strength in our long WALE retail, industrial and agri-logistics assets. Collectively, our NNN portfolio saw a 9.7% uplift from prior book values. Charter Hall has carefully curated the CLW portfolio and it is pleasing to see the results of our asset and sector selection being rewarded with strong valuation gains.”
The unaudited impact of the valuations announced today is an increase to the pro-forma NTA per security from $4.65 to $5.24, a $0.59 or 12.8% increase on the December 2020 NTA2.
