Sabana Shari'ah Compliant Industrial Real Estate Investment Trust is proposing to buy 21 Joo Koon Crescent, a three-storey factory building with ancillary office, for $20.274 million from AVA Global.
Under the sale and leaseback deal, the seller will upon completion of the sale, take a master lease of the entire premises for a four-year term on a triple net basis. Sabana Reit's manager intends to fund the acquisition by debt.
This acquisition, along with the proposed acquisitions of 39 Ubi Road 1, 3A Joo Koon Circle and 2 Toh Tuck Link, announced earlier will see the Reit's aggregate leverage (gross borrowings divided by total deposited property value) rise to 35 per cent from 25.1 per cent at June 30, 2011.
21 Joo Koon Crescent is a JTC leasehold estate of 30+30 years tenure starting from Feb 16, 1994, with a remaining tenure of about 43 years. The proposed transaction is subject to approval from JTC, among other conditions.
