RESULTS OF THE PRIVATE PLACEMENT AND PRICING OF NEW UNITS UNDER THE PRIVATE PLACEMENT AND PREFERENTIAL OFFERING
Capitalised terms used herein, but not otherwise defined, shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the announcement of Mapletree Logistics Trust dated 23 November 2021 titled "Launch of Equity Fund Raising to Raise Gross Proceeds of Approximately S$700.0 million" (the "Launch Announcement").
Following the Launch Announcement, Mapletree Logistics Trust Management Ltd., as manager of MLT (the "Manager"), wishes to announce that DBS Bank Ltd., The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited, Singapore Branch and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited as the joint global co-ordinators and bookrunners for the Equity Fund Raising (the "Joint Global Co-ordinatorsand Bookrunners"), have in consultation with the Manager closed the books of orders for the Private Placement on 23 November 2021.
The Private Placement was oversubscribed and saw good participation from new and existing institutional, accredited and other investors.
The issue price per New Unit under the Private Placement has been fixed at S$1.880 per New Unit (the "Private Placement Issue Price") following a book-building process and the issue price per New Unit under the Preferential Offering has been fixed at S$1.84 per New Unit (the
"Preferential Offering Issue Price").
The Private Placement Issue Price of S$1.880 per New Unit represents a discount of:
(for illustrative purposes only) approximately 2.8% to the Adjusted VWAP1 of S$1.9339 per Unit; and
approximately 3.5% to the VWAP of S$1.9485 per Unit for all trades in the Units done on Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (the "SGX-ST") for the preceding Market Day2 on 22 November 2021 up to the time the Underwriting Agreement was signed.
The "Adjusted VWAP" is computed based on the VWAP of trades in the Units done on the SGX-ST for the preceding Market Day on 22 November 2021 up to the time the Underwriting Agreement was entered into on 23 November 2021 and subtracting the estimated Advanced Distribution (as defined herein) of approximately 1.460 cents per Unit (being the mid- point of the estimated Advanced Distribution Range (as defined herein)). The amount of Advanced Distribution is an estimate only based on information currently available to the Manager and the Manager's estimate of MLT's revenue and expenses for the relevant period on a pro rata basis and the actual Advanced Distribution may differ.
"Market Day" refers to a day on which the SGX-ST is open for securities trading.
The Preferential Offering Issue Price of S$1.84 per New Unit represents a discount of:
(for illustrative purposes only) 4.9% to the Adjusted VWAP of S$1.9339 per Unit; and
5.6% to the VWAP of S$1.9485 per Unit.
A total of 212,766,000 New Units will be issued under the Private Placement, and a total of 159,109,907 New Units will be issued under the Preferential Offering, on the basis of 37 New Units for every 1000 existing Units (the "Existing Units") (fractions of a New Unit to be disregarded) to be held as at 5.00 p.m. on 1 December 2021, being the record date to eligible holders of the Units ("Unitholders"). The total gross proceeds of the Equity Fund Raising will be approximately S$692.8 million comprising approximately S$400.0 million from the Private Placement and approximately S$292.8 million from the Preferential Offering.
3. USE OF PROCEEDS
Further to the Launch Announcement and subject to relevant laws and regulations, the Manager intends to use the gross proceeds of approximately S$692.8 million in the following manner:
approximately S$675.5 million (which is equivalent to 97.5% of the gross proceeds of the Equity Fund Raising) to partially fund the Acquisitions; and
approximately S$17.3 million (which is equivalent to 2.5% of the gross proceeds of the Equity Fund Raising) to pay the estimated professional and other fees and expenses incurred or to be incurred by MLT in connection with the Acquisitions and Equity Fund Raising.
The IPT Acquisitions will be subject to the approval of Unitholders to be sought at an extraordinary general meeting of Unitholders. In the event that MLT does not proceed with the IPT Acquisitions, the proceeds from the Equity Fund Raising shall be re-deployed to fund future investments and/or to pare down debt.
In the event that MLT does not proceed with the Third Party Acquisition, the proceeds from the Equity Fund Raising shall be re-deployed to fund ongoing as well as future investments and/or to pare down debt.
Notwithstanding its current intention, the Manager may, subject to relevant laws and regulations, utilise the net proceeds from the Equity Fund Raising at its absolute discretion for other purposes, including without limitation, the repayment of existing indebtedness and for funding capital expenditures.
The Manager will make periodic announcements on the utilisation of the net proceeds of the Equity Fund Raising via SGXNET as and when such funds are materially disbursed and whether such a use is in accordance with the stated use and in accordance with the percentage allocated. Where proceeds are to be used for working capital purposes, the Manager will disclose a breakdown with specific details on the use of proceeds for working capital in MLT's announcements on the use of proceeds and in MLT's annual report and where there is any material deviation from the stated use of proceeds, the Manager will announce the reasons for such deviation.
Pending the deployment of the net proceeds from the Equity Fund Raising, the net proceeds may, subject to relevant laws and regulations, be deposited with banks and/or financial institutions, or be used to repay outstanding borrowings or for any other purpose on a short- term basis as the Manager may, in its absolute discretion, deem fit.
STATUS OF THE NEW UNITS
Entitlement to Advanced Distribution
MLT's policy is to distribute its distributable income on a quarterly basis to Unitholders. On 25 October 2021, the Manager announced a quarterly distribution of 2.173 Singapore cents per Unit for the period from 1 July 2021 to 30 September 2021.
In connection with the Private Placement, the Manager intends to declare, in respect of the Existing Units, an advanced distribution for the period from 1 October 2021 to the date immediately prior to the date on which the New Units are issued pursuant to the Private Placement (the "Advanced Distribution"). The quantum of distribution per Unit under the Advanced Distribution is currently estimated to be between 1.450 Singapore cents to 1.470 Singapore cents (the "Advanced Distribution Range"). A further announcement on the actual quantum of the Advanced Distribution will be made by the Manager in due course
The New Units pursuant to the Private Placement are expected to be issued on or around 2 December 2021. The Advanced Distribution is intended to ensure that the distribution accrued by MLT up to the day immediately preceding the date of issue of the New Units pursuant to the Private Placement (which at this point, will be entirely attributable to the Existing Units) is only distributed in respect of the Existing Units, and is being proposed as a means to ensure fairness to holders of the Existing Units.
The next distribution following the Advanced Distribution will comprise MLT's distributable income for the period from the day the New Units are issued pursuant to the Private Placement to 31 December 2021 (the "Relevant Period Distribution"). Quarterly distributions will resume thereafter.
Status of New Units issued pursuant to the Private Placement
The New Units issued pursuant to the Private Placement will, upon issue, rank pari passu in all respects with the Units in issue on the day immediately prior to the date on which the New Units are issued pursuant to the Private Placement, other than in respect of the Advanced Distribution and the eligibility to participate in the Preferential Offering.
For the avoidance of doubt, the holders of the New Units to be issued pursuant to the Private Placement will not be entitled to the Advanced Distribution and will not be eligible to participate in the Preferential Offering.
Status of New Units issued pursuant to the Preferential Offering
The New Units issued pursuant to the Preferential Offering will, upon issue, rank pari passu in all respects with the Units in issue on the day immediately prior to the date on which the New Units are issued pursuant to the Preferential Offering, including the right to the Relevant Period Distribution as well as all distributions thereafter, other than in respect of the Advanced Distribution.
For the avoidance of doubt, the holders of the New Units to be issued pursuant to the Preferential Offering will not be entitled to the Advanced Distribution.
PLACEMENT OF NEW UNITS TO DBS BANK LTD.'S TREASURY INVESTMENTS UNIT ("DBS TI")
DBS TI has been allocated 6,000,000 New Units under the Private Placement. Mapletree
Investments Pte Ltd (the "Sponsor") is a substantial unitholder of MLT.
