Far East Hospitality Trust (FEHT) has entered into a conditional agreement with its sponsor to acquire a 65-year leasehold estate in Oasia Hotel Downtown, a 314-room hotel in Tanjong Pagar, for S$210.0m. The acquisition will be funded by debt. On a pro forma basis, 9M17 DPU would be 4% higher at 3.09 S cents (pro forma) instead of 2.97 S cents. Subsequent to the completion of the acquisition, an additional S$15.0m worth of stapled securities will be issued to the vendor if the asset’s NPI is S$9.9m or more for two consecutive fiscal years after the completion. The acquisition is subject to the approval of stapled securityholders at an extraordinary general meeting to be convened.
