OUE Commercial REIT and OUE Hospitality Trust
The merger of OUE Commercial REIT and OUE Hospitality Trust took effect Wednesday, creating a larger, more diversified Singapore REIT with assets of around S$6.9 billion, the two REITs said Wednesday.
Cache Logistics Trust
Cache Logistics Trust obtained a Singapore-based global technology, defence and engineering company as a major new tenant for its Commodity Hub property, the REIT said in a filing to SGX Tuesday.
Frasers Logistics & Industrial Trust
Frasers Logistics & Industrial Trust said Tuesday it has completed the acquisition of 94.9 percent stakes in two Dutch companies which hold the Hermes Augsburg and Kentner facilities in Germany for 29.8 million euros, or around S$45.9 million.
The purchase was fully funded by debt, the trust said in a filing to SGX.
BreadTalk said Tuesday it has applied to SGX for a waiver from seeking shareholder approval for its proposed acquisition of food court operator Food Junction Management.
“The proposed acquisition is to be regarded as being in the ordinary course of the group’s business and will only result in an expansion of the group’s existing core business,” BreadTalk said in a filing to SGX.
Sasseur Asset Management, the manager of Sasseur REIT, said Tuesday it changed the designation of Chew Hian Chin Ken to chief operating officer from chief investment officer, effective 1 September.
Chew will remain in charge of investments and asset management for the REIT, and will undertake additional duties as the chief operating officer, the REIT said in a filing to SGX.
TEE International requested a trading halt Tuesday, pending the release of an announcement.
Bank of America Corp. and Merrill Lynch International ceased to be substantial shareholders of MindChamps PreSchool, with their deemed interests falling to 4.99 percent, before the 5 percent threshold, from 5.004 percent previously, Merrill Lynch (Asia Pacific) said in a filing to SGX Tuesday.
That was after the disposition of 33,300 shares as part of the international prime brokerage business, the filing said.
Eagle Hospitality Trust
Wealthy Fountain, a substantial shareholder of Eagle Hospitality Trust, disposed of 3 million units of the trust for US$2.04 million in an off-market transaction on 30 August, Tong Jinquan, who wholly owns Wealthy Fountain via Shanghai Summit, said in a filing to SGX Tuesday.
In addition, on 30 August, Wealthy Fountain sold 2 million units of Eagle Hospitality Trust for US$1.35 million in a market transaction, the filing said.
As a result of the two transactions, Wealthy Fountain’s direct interest in Eagle Hospitality Trust fell to 6.58 percent from 7.16 percent, the filing said.
Dasin Retail Trust
Dasin Retail Trust said Tuesday its private placement of 82.35 million new units at S$0.836 each was around 1.2 times subscribed, and was “well-supported” by both new and existing unitholders.
The issue price was a discount of 2.4 percent to the volume weighted average price of S$0.8563 for trades on Monday, Dasin Retail Trust said in a filing to SGX.
The gross proceeds of around S$68.8 million will be used to fund the purchase of the Doumen Metro Mall in China’s Guangdong Province, the trust said.
The new units are expected to begin trading on 12 September, the filing said. On Wednesday, the trust requested the trading halt on its shares be lifted.
