Recently, Mirvac has launched an AU$ 750 million fully underwritten institutional placement at a fixed price (Placement Price) of AU$ 2.97 per new stapled security, which represents: a 4.2 % discount to Mirvac’s closing price of AU$ 3.10 per stapled security on Tuesday, 28 May 2019; and a 4.5 % discount to the five-day volume-weighted average price (VWAP) of AU$ 3.11 per stapled security as on 28 May 2019.

In addition to the placement, Mirvac is also offering the eligible securityholders in Australia or New Zealand the opportunity to participate in a non-underwritten SPP. The securityholders may acquire up to AU$ 15000 of New Securities per securityholder at AU$ 2.90 per New Security. The SPP price is the Placement Price adjusted for the payment of distribution of 6.3 cpss relating to the six months to 30 June 2019.
