Pacific Property Fund Ltd to acquire iconic Whangarei property with national tenant
TAURANGA – November 30 – Pacific Property Fund Limited, an investment portfolio managed byProperty Managers Group, has announced its intention to acquire its first property in Whangarei, a landmark property in the heart of the city’s CBD.

The building is currently tenanted by leading national retailer the Farmers Trading Company, who will commence a new 15-year lease following a building refurbishment programme. Pacific Property expects to take ownership of the building before Christmas.

The pending acquisition of 8 Robert Street in Whangarei forms part of the offer of 16,000,0000 new shares in Pacific Property Fund Limited, the largest investment portfolio Property Managers Group manages. The funds raised will go towards the purchase of 8 Roberts Street , a logistics industrial hub in the Central North Island (Stag Park), and a mixed-use commercial and retail property in the heart of Tauranga’s CBD.

Director of Pacific Property Fund, Denis McMahon, says the acquisition is an excellent addition to the Fund’s diversified portfolio and would take its total assets to more than $70 million.

“This acquisition is part of our long-term investment strategy to provide strong and sustainable returns for shareholders,” says McMahon.

The manager, Property Managers Group’s CEO Scott McKenzie, says the proposed acquisition by Pacific Property signifies confidence in the ongoing growth in the area.

“Whangarei generates approximately half of the Northland regional economy and growth is continuing with GDP up 2.1%[1] on the past year. Regional spending and investment indicators show ongoing expansion in the area; population, employment and productivity figures have all increased in the past year, which, alongside a diversified portfolio of industrial, retail, and office properties, makes this a sound proposition for Pacific Property shareholders,” McKenzie said.

“For investors in Whangarei this gives them a chance to own a stake of the investment portfolio which owns one of the city’s well known landmarks,” he said.

The Product Disclosure Statements (PDS) for Pacific Property’s investment portfolio is available to existing and new investors and the offer formally closes on December 2, 2016.
