ASX Announcement

December 2021 Quarter in Review - Appendix 4C

Key Points

  • Assets Under Management ("AUM") increased 16.5% from A$400M to A$466M during the quarter
  • Record Cash receipts for the quarter of $3.53M
  • Positive Cash from Operations for the quarter of $2.09M
  • Cash balance at the end of December was $13.4M

Auctus Investment Group Limited ('AVC', 'Auctus' or 'the Company') is pleased to provide the following update in relation to activities for the December quarter of 2021.

Auctus Asset Management Pty Ltd (Auctus AM)

Auctus Asset Management ('Auctus AM') increased AUM from A$400M at the end of September 2021 to A$466M at the end of December 2021. The current AUM figure is post two successful property exits in the US student housing portfolio totalling A$34.35M (further information below). Importantly, fee earning AUM has increased over 45% since the end of the June 2021 financial year to $360M.

The December 2021 quarter was focussed on the "Luxury Escapes Fund". The Fund launched in mid- September and received significant interest. As announced in late December the fund closed its initial raise in-excess of $70M.

Cash Flow from Operations and Cash Position

Auctus generated $3.53M in cash receipts from customers for the December Quarter, leading to a record positive cash from operations of $2.09M.

The majority of the revenue for the quarter came from our Luxury Escapes Fund. Auctus continues to increase recurring revenue with over $800,000 of this quarter's revenue being recurring in nature.

The only investment made during the Quarter was a short-term working capital loan to esVolta. As updated to the market on 7 December 2021 this loan is for US$2.5M and is expected to be repaid towards the end of Q1 2022. esVolta appointed Citigroup (Citi) New York to run a broadly marketed process which will potentially lead to a near term full (or partial) exit, to be completed during the first quarter of 2022.

A cash inflow from issuance of securities of $4.2M was driven by option holders exercising and becoming shareholders in Auctus.

This meant the Company ended December 2021 with just over $13.4M in cash.

All payments noted in Section 6 of the accompanying Appendix 4C for related party payments during the quarter relate to settlement of directors' fees and salaries, including payment of invoices and amounts due from prior periods.

Updates

US Student Housing REIT (ASX: USQ)

During the quarter Auctus settled an additional asset at Clemson University for US$25.5M (A$35.40M) and successfully disposed of two properties in the existing jointly managed portfolio with Student Quarters ('SQ'). The sale of the two properties, for a combined total of approximately US$34.35M (A$47.70M) delivered investors Internal Rates of Return of >15% p.a. over the investment period demonstrating SQ's ability to execute on acquisition, operational management and divestment.

On 16 December 2021, Auctus was pleased to announce that US Student Housing REIT (ASX: USQ) ('USQ' or 'the REIT') had lodged a Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) with the Australian Securities Investments Commission for its proposed listing on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX). The REIT is seeking to raise A$45M and has a proposed listing date of 16 February 2022. www.usq-reit.com.

Auctus is the appointed Investment Manager of the REIT and will receive a management fee of 0.60% p.a. of Gross Asset Value (GAV) upon listing. The REIT will consist of 11 properties, with a fair value of US$189M (GAV). The REIT brings together an existing portfolio of assets under the joint venture along with new assets to be settled during February.

Auctus are extremely pleased with the progress of its joint venture with SQ and both look forward to growing USQ over the coming years.

US Opportunities Limited ("USO"):

USO deployed a further US$7.865M (~A$11M) into leading US healthcare technology company, Unite Us, taking total deployed capital of USO to US$23.74M (~A$33M) across 3 transactions. The investment in Unite Us fits with USO's strategy to invest in hard to access, US later stage private equity and pre-IPO investment opportunities.

USO raised A$35M of seed capital during H1 FY22 with Auctus being the appointed Investment Manager. Auctus will look to scale up USO during H2 FY22 as a key pillar to the Company and to diversify the portfolio into new investments during 2022.
