Successful completion of Institutional Entitlement Offer

NorthWest Healthcare Properties Management Limited (the Manager), as manager of Vital Healthcare Property Trust (Vital), advises that it has successfully completed the institutional entitlement offer component (Institutional Entitlement Offer) and the institutional bookbuild component (Institutional Bookbuild) (together, the Institutional Offer) of its underwritten 1 for 8.54 pro rata accelerated entitlement offer (Offer) announced on Thursday, 28 April 2022.

The Institutional Entitlement Offer closed at 5.00pm (NZ time) on Thursday, 28 April 2022. The Institutional Bookbuild opened at 10.00am and closed at 3.00pm (NZ time) on Friday, 29 April 2022. Eligible institutional unitholders took up 98% of their entitlements and, combined with clearing the Institutional Bookbuild, have raised gross proceeds of $109.8m, representing approximately 37.2 million new units.

The Institutional Bookbuild of 4.6 million units achieved a clearing price of $3.04 per unit representing a premium of $0.09 per unit, 3.1% over the offer price. This premium means that institutional unitholders who were not eligible to participate or did not take up their full entitlement receive a return of $0.09 per unit on their entitlements.

New units issued under the Institutional Offer are expected to be allotted and commence trading on the NZX on Friday, 6 May 2022.
In advance of the Offer, NorthWest Healthcare Properties REIT had committed, on behalf of its owned and controlled entities, to participate in the Offer by subscribing for $55m of new units, representing its pro rata ~27.5% stake in Vital. It did so by taking up its entitlements in full in the Institutional Entitlement Offer.

The balance of the Offer is underwritten by Craigs Investment Partners Limited and Forsyth Barr Group Limited.
