Ascendas Real Estate Investment Trust (A-REIT) has entered into an agreement to sell its property at 6 Pioneer Walk for S$32 million to Chasen Logistics Services, a subsidiary of SGX-listed Chasen Holdings.
The sale price is at a 42 per cent premium over the original purchase price of S$22.5 million in 2007.
The property has a 2-storey warehouse with a ramp-up driveway and a 4-storey ancillary office.
It also has a single-storey workshop and a container yard with a gross floor area of about 20,100 square metres.
The property has a remaining land tenure of about 24 years.
A-REIT’s manager, Ascendas Funds Management, said in a statement that the divestment is in-line with its “proactive asset management strategy where it seeks to regularly review and rejuvenate its portfolio.”
With the sale, A-REIT said its proforma net property income would reduce by S$1.78 million for FY2011/12.
The transaction is expected to be completed by end-June 2012.
