SCA Property Group IPO - Purchase of Woolworths Group Shopping Centres

We are pleased to announce that 2020 DIRECTINVEST is able to bid, on behalf of clients, into the upcoming IPO of SCA Property Group. SCA Property Group is proposing to acquire from the Woolworths Group a portfolio of 69 Australian and New Zealand shopping centres valued at approximately A$1.4 billion.

SCA Property Group is undertaking an Offer of approximately 337 million Stapled Units to raise between $425 million and $506 million, at an Offer Price Range of between $1.26 to $1.50 per Stapled Unit (inclusive) representing a discount to NTA at allotment of 20%-25%. Depending on the final price the yield is expected to be in the range 6.9% - 8.3% (A$0.10 FY14 DPU).

SCA Property Group will offer Unitholders:

  • A geographically diverse portfolio of sub-regional and neighbourhood shopping centres and freestanding retail assets in Australia and New Zealand;
  • A tenancy mix with a bias toward tenants that trade in the more defensive non-discretionary segment of the retail market;
  • Long term leases to quality retail tenants providing a secure income stream to support regular distributions to investors;
  • Modern retail centres with an average age of 2.1 years which is expected to minimise SCA Property Group's near term capital expenditure obligations; and
  • An attractive distribution yield.

The Offer comprises:

  • A Woolworths Retail Shareholder Offer;
  • A Broker Firm Offer; and
  • A General Public Offer; and
  • An Institutional Offer.

  • New standalone entity with no previous trading history
  • Concentration Risk with Woolworths Group accounting for 75% of the Portfolio’s total Gross Lettable Area (GLA) at listing and over 60% of Portfolio Fully Leased Gross Income over the Forecast Period.
  • Exposure to specialty tenants may be considered less secure than Woolworths due to their smaller size, greater exposure to the discretionary retail market and less diverse operations.
  • Rental guarantee for a period of two years will expire.
  • Completion of development portfolio which is entirely dependent on the Woolworths Group. 
  • Withdrawal of properties from the Portfolio if the transfer of title to such properties is not registered in time
  • Stamp duty exemption on transfer of all Properties has been sought but to the extent that an exemption is not obtained in New South Wales, or a condition of an exemption is not satisfied, then SCA Property Group may incur significant unexpected costs.
  • Valuations ascribed to each property will be influenced by a number of ongoing factors including:
    –– supply and demand for retail properties;
    –– general property market conditions; and
    –– the ability to attract and implement economically viable rental arrangements.
  • Property liquidity
