The Trustee may propose to acquire additional properties into the Trust if it makes sense to do so.

The primary purpose is to derive rental income from the properties, notwithstanding the possibility of further development of their rent generation potential.

The Trustee will target properties with relatively high land value component of the purchase price and are expected to deliver an average cash return of at least 9% per annum and 10% internal rate of return per annum to Unitholders.

If additional properties are acquired into the Trust, further equity capital will be raised pursuant to this Memorandum or a subsequent and updated information memorandum.Existing Unitholders will be given priority to subscribe for additional Units, but there is no obligation to do so.

The Lester Group intends to maintain an investment of $1 million per property.

Additional debt is likely to be obtained for the purposes of settling additional properties.The level of debt will be dependent upon the additional property’s WALE and tenant profile but the overall LVR of the combined Properties of the Trust will be considered conservative.
