Case studies

Opportunity:

  • Potential to turnaround a well located asset with limited appeal at purchase, through active management and lease reposition
  • With a short WALE over 20 tenants and a 14% vacancy the asset was hard to fund and required intensive management, limiting its appeal to many buyer groups and hampering pricing
  • Multi-tenanted provided diversity of income, whilst management intensive mitigated income risk

Where we added value:

  • 17 lease transactions out of a total of 26 tenancies reset within 2 years of purchase, eliminated building vacancy at purchase and WALE enhanced from 2.0 to 3.3 years
  • Sold at significantly enhanced yield, delivering a 42.8% IRR to investors (relative to target IRR of 11%)

Opportunity:

  • Land value accounted for ~80% of the purchase price, effectively acquiring the improvements well below replacement costs
  • Large land holding in a defensive location
  • Multi-tenancy providing diversity of income

Where we added value:

  • Effective & efficient lease reset of 50% NLA, through a series of complex lease surrender, new lease and renewals, eliminating the 8% vacancy at purchase and significantly extending the WALE from 3.5 to 5.3 years
  • Corrected the flaws in leasing which triggered the exit from the previous
    institutional vendor and brought back the institutional appeal
  • Sold to AMP, returning 1.5x money multiple
  • Delivered 23.3% IRR to investors (relative to target IRR of 12%)

Opportunity:

  • Poorly presented centre with vacancy in specialty, a loss making car park and high outgoings, which would benefit from active management
  • A strongly performing Coles with turnover of $40m+ anchored 66% of cash flow and forms a good foundation to reposition the specialty tenancies
  • The Stratum nature adds complexity to manage and reposition while working in tandem with other stakeholders, which deterred many buyers
  • Flexible exit options – strata sell down to unlock the high value embedded in the Coles tenancy or selling in one line

Where we added value:

  • Intensive management which turned around the car park, rationalised outgoings and repositioned leases on ~40% of NLA
  • Sold on market to a passive private investor and realised a 28.1% IRR (relative to a target IRR of 13%)

Opportunity:

  • Vendor whose trust has come to the end of its tenure meaning certainty of a sales outcome
  • 17% vacancy at point of sale in a building with good leasing potential
  • Unique asset proposition with proximity to the Sydney harbour affording open water views provide a point of difference to tenants and enhances leasability
  • Lease hold and heritage attributes deterred buyers
  • Multi-tenanted providing quality and diversity of cash flow

Where we added value:

  • Aggressive leasing implemented eliminating the 17% vacancy prior to purchase settlement
  • Over 95% leased throughout entire ownership since December 2012
  • Achieved rental increase of 56% over 5 years
  • Significant value increase enabled CPG to return 100% capital to investors while still owning the asset

Opportunity:

  • Partnering with an experienced operator with proven success, in a high growth sector, where property is an integral part of the business model
  • Ongoing investment and development opportunities in partnership with the operator, for CPG syndicates as well as bespoke mandates

Where we added value:

  • Identification and execution of a joint venture partnership with the operator
  • Executed on two separate offers to invest $20m in the operating business (operating company) and another $20m in childcare properties (property trust) through two CPG managed funds
  • Creating synergetic relationship where the operating company’s capital light expansion model is assisted by the property trust, which in turn gains priority access to a pipeline of attractive properties secured at superior transaction terms
  • Facilitating ongoing investment opportunities in childcare properties
