The building in which NZME is anchor tenant was syndicated for $70m.
Big syndication success
The largest syndication to be undertaken by Augusta Funds Management, offering $70m of equity in a new office building in Auckland’s CBD in which NZME is the anchor tenant, has closed oversubscribed. Mike Houlker, Samara Phillips and Sarah Prebble from Bayleys’ Investment Products & Syndication Division sold a total of 1400 investment units of $50,000 each in the limited partnership purchasing the 11,177 sq m Building A at 4 Graham St from a subsidiary of Mansons TCLM for $115,818,265. Houlker says the offering, which has an initial forecast pre-tax cash return of 7 per cent increasing to 8 per cent over the next four years, attracted substantial interest from investors from all around the country. The property has a Weighted Average Lease Term (WALT) of just under 12 years with NZME occupying three floors and Meredith Connell and Pernod Ricard one floor each. It is part of a two-building office complex which won the 2016 Property Council New Zealand Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Supreme Award for the best development project of the year.
