The Institutional Entitlement Offer raised approximately $81 million (including approximately $24 million worth of entitlements that were taken up by Charter Hall Group).

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.
