ASX-listed real estate investment trust Viva Energy REIT (‘VVR’)  said it had acquired eight service station properties for $89.1 million, excluding transaction costs.

The service stations are in Victoria, Queensland, NSW and NT, it said. 

The REIT said in an ASX announcement that it was raising equity to fund the acquisitions.

The capital raising includes $80 million in fully underwritten Institutional Placement with a non-underwritten Security Purchase Plan (‘SPP’) of up to $10 million to follow.

It said all new securities have full entitlement to the distribution for the six months ending 30 June 2017.

Commenting on the acquisitions, Margaret Kennedy, managing director of VER Manager Pty Ltd, manager of VVR, said the new properties would further diversify its portfolio.

In addition,  Viva is currently undertaking due diligence on 10 properties valued at about $45 million.

VVR also announced it had recently secured an additional $60 million, three-year bilateral debt facility from an existing lender. VVR has nearly $135 million of debt capacity available to fund future acquisitions.
