Property Connect, a rental property technology company, is raising $2.5 million through a public listing on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) as as part of a reverse takeover by Conquest Agri (ASX:CQA).

The company will issue 50 million shares at A$0.05 per share, giving it a market cap of A$12.28 million upon listing, expected March 7 under the proposed ASX code PCH.

Property Connect has developed a program called LiveOffer, through which potential tenants can make an offer on a rental property, thus creating a fair market value for rental properties.

LiveOffer™ provides the renter with the ability to adjust the rent paid, move in date and lease term to create an overall scenario for the property manager.

“We provide a win-win situation, instantly matching the ideal renter for the property and securing the optimum outcome for the property manager,” said Property Connect founder, former Sydney property developer Tim Manson.

Manson has relocated to California seeking to launch the LiveOffer™ technology into the US multi-family apartment market.

“Feedback from those who have trialled the technology has been excellent and we have a host of clients eagerly anticipating the new version.”

Version 2.0 of LiveOffer™ is expected in Q2 CY2016.

Property Connect will charge a set-up fee and monthly fee for each community placed on the LiveOffer™ system by the property manager, in addition to a 1-3% transaction fee per lease passed through the platform.

The product also provides an opportunity for tenants to upgrade to premium apartments that become available.

The company has signed agreements with 10 US property management groups, with more than 100,000 combined listings per annum, for use of the LiveOffer™ platform.

Funds from the capital raising will be used for system development, hiring and working capital. 

GTT Ventures Pty Ltd is sole lead manager for the equity raising.
