Cromwell follows ASIC’s good practice guidance for website disclosure of material information. This means that all material information in relation to the Cromwell Direct Property Fund will be posted on this webpage as soon as practicable after Cromwell becomes aware of it.

Cromwell Funds Management Limited (CFML), as responsible entity of the Cromwell Direct Property Fund (the Fund) temporarily suspended applications into the Fund, and ceased to offer the Distribution Reinvestment Plan (DRP) as of 14 November, until the half-year valuation cycle was completed. As part of this process and until the audited financials for the half-year ending 31 December 2023 are released, the Fund’s:

  • applications remain suspended; and
  • Distribution Reinvestment Plan (DRP) will not be offered.

Further notice will be provided when the Fund reopens for applications and when the DRP is reinstated.

For those investors previously participating in the DRP, future distributions will continue to be paid in cash into the investor’s nominated bank account and will not be reinvested during the period of suspension.

CFML also confirms the advice in correspondence to unitholders dated 18 December 2023, the distribution rate will be lowered to 4.75 cpu p.a. from 1 January 2024. For clarity, the January 2024 distribution, which will be paid in February 2024, will be the first at this lower rate.

This notice replaces the CDN dated 10 January 2024.

Cromwell Funds Management Limited (CFML), as responsible entity of the Cromwell Direct Property Fund (CDPF or the Fund), advises that it will temporarily suspend accepting applications into CDPF and offering the CDPF Distribution Reinvestment Plan (DRP), effective from 14 November 2023, with likely reinstatement in early 2024.

As part of CDPF’s Valuation Policy, the Fund’s underlying property assets are valued each 12-month period, last completed in April and June 2023. Given the recent volatility in Australian real estate markets, and in particular potential movement in office asset valuations, the Board considers it is appropriate to revalue CDPF’s assets again prior to the end of the 2023 calendar year to identify if any values may have moved materially owing to the nature of the assets and market circumstances, which may require updated independent valuations.

Further notice will be provided when CDPF reopens for applications and when the DRP is reinstated.

For those investors currently participating in the DRP, future distributions will be paid in cash into the investor’s nominated bank account and will not be reinvested during the period of suspension.

Cromwell Property Group (ASX: CMW) (Cromwell), today announces that Cromwell Funds Management Limited (CFML), as responsible entity of the Cromwell Direct Property Fund (CDPF), and Australian Unity Property Limited (AUPL), as responsible entity of the Australian Unity Diversified Property Fund (AUDPF) have jointly agreed to terminate the Merger Implementation Deed (MID) in relation to the proposed merger of CDPF and AUDPF (Proposed Merger).

Since the announcement of the Proposed Merger, market conditions impacting commercial property investment have materially changed and, consequently, have increased uncertainty in relation to the Proposed Merger. Given these developments, the parties have determined that proceeding with the Proposed Merger is no longer in the best interests of the respective funds’ investors.

The Share Sale and Purchase Agreement relating to the purchase shares in AUPL by Cromwell, which was conditional on implementation of the merger, has also been terminated.

CFML remains committed to CDPF’s strategy to provide regular income to unitholders through a portfolio of quality Australian real estate assets.

For more information on the Proposed Merger, or anything else relating to the Cromwell Direct Property Fund, please contact Cromwell’s investor Services Team on 1300 268 078 or your Relationship Manager directly or visit the website: www.cromwell.com.au/dpf.

Cromwell Funds Management is pleased to announce that in the 2022 financial year, Unitholders1 of the Cromwell Direct Property Fund (Fund) earned a total return of 12.4% which included total distributions of 8.5171 cents per unit (cpu), equivalent to a yield of 6.4%2. This included the annual 7.25 cpu which was paid monthly over the course of the year, and an additional special distribution of 1.2671004 cpu paid on 19 July 2022.

The Fund went ex-distribution on 30 June 2022, reducing the unit price of the Fund. As part of the annual budgeting process, we review all aspects of the Fund from the individual assets, right through to Fund expenses and distributions.

As Unitholders would be aware, Australia and much of the world is in an inflationary cycle. To combat this, the Reserve Bank of Australia has increased the official cash rate four times since May 2022, taking the official rate from historic lows of 0.1% to 1.85% in just three months. These increases to rates and inflation have a direct impact to the costs of both businesses and individuals. The Fund is not immune to this flow on effect.

As a result, the decision has been made that from 1 July 2022, distribution payments will be reduced by 0.5 cpu per annum, from the current 7.25 cpu to 6.75 cpu.

At the current unit price of $1.314 (31 July 2022), a distribution of 6.75 cpu p.a. provides a yield of approximately 5.14%.

Distributions will continue to be paid monthly.

The Cromwell Direct Property Fund (the Fund) has added to its direct property portfolio with the acquisition of Chesser House, located at 95 Grenfell Street, Adelaide at a purchase price of $81.35 million with the final contractual conditions satisfied today (the Acquisition).

Chesser House is an 11-storey A-grade office tower with total net lettable area of 11,121 sqm and a 6.1-year WALE.

The building has undergone significant works which includes the implementation of new end-of-trip facilities, a ground floor lobby upgrade, refurbished lift lobbies and modernised lift cars. A new 93KW solar panel system has also been installed, which generates 17% of the total base building power. This is reflected in the building’s impressive 5-Star NABERS Energy rating.

The asset is anchored by the South Australian Attorney General’s Department, increasing overall portfolio exposure to government tenants to 37%, with additional leases to blue-chip tenants Serco and CyberCX.

The location adds to the geographic diversification of the Fund and is a timely acquisition, with the Adelaide CBD set to benefit from significant economic activity as a result of State and Federal Government spending on defence, technology, innovation and biomed. This is headlined by the Department of Defence’s $35 billion Future Frigate project and the $3.6 billion medical precinct, which is set to become the largest health cluster in the Southern Hemisphere.

The Acquisition is accretive to the Fund’s earnings and takes the Fund’s direct property portfolio to eight assets valued at $667 million, with look-through property exposure to 10 assets with a value of $760 million and a portfolio WALE of 5.1 years.

The Chesser House acquisition builds upon a strong 2021 for DPF, with the Fund acquiring two Brisbane CBD assets – 545 Queen Street and 100 Creek Street – in May and October respectively and will support the Fund’s longstanding track record of paying unitholders a regular, reliable income1.

Cromwell Funds Management (CFM) is pleased to announce the extension of the Cromwell Direct Property Fund (Fund) into a second Term. The Fund’s first full withdrawal opportunity closed on 31 July 2020, with withdrawal requests totalling 9.9% of issued capital.

The Fund expects to distribute withdrawal request proceeds received throughout the withdrawal opportunity in full on or around 17 August 2020. The withdrawals will be funded by a combination of existing cash reserves and undrawn debt.

Any future withdrawal requests must be lodged via the Fund’s Limited Monthly Withdrawal Facility form, which re-opened on 01 August 2020. Please refer to Section 7.4 of the Fund’s Product Disclosure Statement for further information on withdrawals from the Fund.

The Fund’s next full withdrawal opportunity will be in a further five years, being July 2025, and then each subsequent five years thereafter.

If you have any questions in relation to the withdrawal opportunity, please contact Cromwell’s Investor Services Team on 1300 268 078.

The first full liquidity event for the Cromwell Direct Property Fund (the Fund) commenced on 1 July 2020.

The Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) for the Fund explained (in section 7.4) that after expiry of the Initial Term in July 2020, Cromwell Funds Management Limited (CFM) would give all investors an opportunity to withdraw from the Fund (the “Liquidity Event”). The purpose of this update is to notify investors of the Liquidity Event and the period they have to make a withdrawal request under it (the “notice period”).

The notice period commenced on 1 July 2020 and will conclude at 5pm AEST on 31 July 2020, as illustrated in the timetable below1. Withdrawal requests must be received within the notice period.

In accordance with the process set out in the Fund’s Constitution, if all withdrawal requests received during the notice period cannot be satisfied by 31 January 2021, or if withdrawal requests received total more than 50% of the units on issue on the first business day after the close of the notice period, then CFM will take steps to wind up the Fund and distribute the net proceeds to investors.

Subject to the level of withdrawal requests received, CFM expects to distribute redemption proceeds on or around 17 August 2020. If all withdrawal requests cannot be satisfied, then they will be paid or partly paid on a pro-rata basis monthly thereafter on or about the 20th of each month subject to available liquidity in the Fund.

CFM will suspend the Limited Monthly Withdrawal Facility during the notice period and any unsatisfied withdrawal requests will not be processed under that Facility for the month of July. Any investors with an unsatisfied withdrawal request wishing to participate in the Liquidity Event must either-

(a) advise CFM of their intention in writing during the notice period, or
(b) submit the Liquidity Event Withdrawal Form enclosed.

If an investor confirms by written notice to participate in the Liquidity Event, then any existing unfulfilled withdrawal request under the Limited Monthly Withdrawal Facility will be cancelled and included in the Liquidity Event, together with the other requests received in the notice period, all of which will be treated equally.

If an investor with an unsatisfied withdrawal request under the Limited Withdrawal Facility at 30 June 2020 elects not to participate in the Liquidity Event, then their unsatisfied withdrawal request will be carried forward and be deemed to have been made when the Limited Monthly Withdrawal Facility re-opens in August 2020.

Monthly distributions (currently 7.25 cents per unit per annum) will continue to be paid based on investors’ unitholding balances on the last day of each month.

Withdrawal requests under the Liquidity Event may be funded from cash, undrawn debt facilities, the sale of assets, or the issue of new units, or in accordance with the Constitution, CFM may also seek to facilitate unit transfers between those wishing to withdraw and those wishing to acquire units.

As at 23 June 2020, the most recently available unit price is $1.1892, which excludes the upcoming independent re-valuation of all properties held by the Fund at 30 June 2020. Updated unit pricing, including the impact of the upcoming 30 June 2020 independent revaluations will be available on the Fund’s webpage at www.cromwell.com.au/dpf in early July.

The withdrawal price payable for requests under the Liquidity Event will be calculated on the day before the withdrawal payment is made, in accordance with the Fund’s Constitution and unit pricing policy.

If all withdrawal requests under the Liquidity Event can be satisfied by 31 January 2021, then the Fund’s next full Liquidity Event will be in a further five years, being July 2025, and then each subsequent five years thereafter.

All directly held assets within the Fund were independently valued, other than the Retail Complex at Parafield which is recorded at its sales price. As at 30 June 2020 the asset had been sold but had not settled.

The Fund also benefitted from increases to indirect holdings in the assets of the Cromwell Riverpark Trust, Cromwell Ipswich City Heart Trust and the Cromwell Property Trust 12.

The increase in value of the assets are expected to affect the unit price for units issued and redeemed in the Fund on and from 1 July 2020.

CFM will continue to monitor the property investment market closely to ensure the pricing of our unlisted assets remains appropriate and that all investors are treated equitably.

Cromwell Funds Management Limited (“CFM”) has entered into an unconditional contract to sell the Parafield Retail Complex, located in Main North Road, Parafield, South Australia for $27.25 million.

The timing of the sale is advantageous to the Fund by providing liquidity in advance of the Fund’s upcoming first full Liquidity Event. The sale also improves the Fund’s portfolio metrics by reducing the exposure to large format retail north of Adelaide.

Settlement is expected to take place prior to the payment of Liquidity Event proceeds, due to occur in mid-August, 2020.

The sale price agreed reflects a discount of 3.1% to the last internal valuation of $28.12 million, undertaken at the onset of the COVID-19 crisis on April 7.

Cromwell Direct Property Fund – Update

The COVID-19 crisis has impacted almost all asset classes negatively, and unlisted commercial property has not been immune to the fall-out, particularly in our capacity as landlords. In response to the crisis, on 7 April 2020, the National Cabinet issued a Mandatory Commercial Tenancy Code of Conduct. The Code is a set of principles to guide rent relief negotiations between landlords and tenants and is mandatory.

You can read more information on the National Cabinet’s Mandatory Code of Conduct for Commercial Leases referred to in the update via the following link:

National Code of Conduct – Commercial Leasing

Some of the Fund’s tenants have been and continue to be impacted by COVID-19, and therefore will be safe-guarded to an extent by the relief put in place by the Code. The potential impact of this on the Fund will be on both the income derived from its leases and on the value of the assets it holds.

In the short term, we have quantified the valuation impact on a tenant by tenant basis based off current information. As a result, as we communicated in early April, the valuations of directly held property assets within the Fund were reduced in an aggregate drop of 5.9%, as at 07 April 2020. Valuations of indirectly held assets also underwent a revaluation.

International Education Services (IES)
DPF-Adviser-International-Education-Services-IES

The Fund asset which is bearing the brunt of the crisis is foreign education services provider, IES, located at Spring Hill in Brisbane.

Fund continues to be placed well for market recovery
DPF-Adviser-Market-recovery

However, despite some inevitable COVID-19 impact, the Fund is in an excellent position overall to ride out the current volatility. Highlights include the current tenancy profile by income which is weighted to 43% government or government owned tenants. Combined with a Weighted Average Lease Expiry of 7.6 years, income security is promising over the longer term. With look though gearing currently at 24.6%4, high levels of cash as a buffer, a large undrawn debt facility with expiry not until July 2022, the outlook for the Fund is positive and it remains open for investment.

DPF-Adviser-fund-investment

The Fund is currently paying a distribution yield of approximately 6%5, 6. The market outlook and future performance of the sector very much depends on the length of downtime that businesses are affected.

To this point, Australia has managed to successfully flatten the curve and both Federal and State governments have begun to talk about the easing of restrictions. We would expect this to fare well for commercial property markets, with increased economic activity of tenants, their employees and consumers hopefully lessening the reliance on stimulation packages and therefore shortening any downturn.

As we ride the fallout from the COVID-19 crisis, we will continue to monitor the property investment market closely to ensure the pricing of our unlisted assets remains appropriate and that all investors are treated equitably.

We will act in a responsible way that balances the interests of all stakeholders and to ensure that the impact of the pandemic is not borne unfairly by any one particular group.

The Fund is well positioned to take advantage of any opportunities that eventuate as a result of the crisis.

Cromwell Funds Management COVID-19 Asset Valuations Update

COVID-19 continues to be an unprecedented global event and Cromwell recognises the urgent nature of the emergency, our responsibility to help ‘flatten the curve’ and contribute to the ensuing recovery in all the countries, cities and communities in which we operate.

Cromwell CEO, Paul Weightman, has stated, “We are conscious that we have a wide range of stakeholders including employees, securityholders, tenants, suppliers, contractors and service providers impacted by COVID-19.”

“We will act in a responsible way that balances the interests of all stakeholders and to ensure that the impact of the pandemic is not borne unfairly by any one particular group,” he added.

Cromwell Funds Management Unlisted Property Funds

Cromwell Funds Management (CFM) understands that many investors are concerned about the impact the COVID-19 crisis might have on their investment balance in one of CFM’s unlisted property funds.

Unlike listed markets which provide transparent, albeit often volatile pricing, assessing the valuation of unlisted assets is more difficult at a time when there is little transactional activity to allow for the benchmarking, and then valuing, of an asset. It is clear, however, that property and other asset types have been adversely affected by the crisis.

CFM has a fiduciary duty to ensure that all investors in the funds, those applying for new units and those redeeming their units are treated equitably.

CFM has therefore quantified the valuation impact on a tenant by tenant basis based off current information. As a result, the valuations of directly held property assets within the Cromwell Direct Property Fund, Cromwell Riverpark Trust, Cromwell Ipswich City Heart Trust and Cromwell Property Trust 12 have been devalued by 5.9%, 1.4%, 2.4% and 1.6% respectively.

The revaluations have now been included in each Fund’s unit pricing and are consistent with many superannuation funds and unlisted property fund managers who have reduced valuations of unlisted property and infrastructure assets in a range of 7% to 10%.

Based on information currently available there is no change to forecast distributions across the Funds and the Cromwell Direct Property Fund remains open for investment.

CFM will continue to monitor the property investment market closely to ensure the pricing of our unlisted assets remains appropriate and that all investors are treated equitably.

Cromwell Funds Management Limited (CFM) has issued a Supplementary Product Disclosure Notice (“SPDS”) for the Cromwell Direct Property Fund (“Fund”) to be distributed and read in conjunction with the Product Disclosure Notice dated 29 September 2017 (“PDS”) as follows.

Cromwell Direct Property Fund ARSN 165 011 905 | APIR CODE CRM0018AU
Cromwell Funds Management Limited ABN 63 114 782 777 | AFSL 333 214
Supplementary Product Disclosure Statement

This Supplementary Product Disclosure Statement (“SPDS”), dated 6 April 2020, is supplemental to the Product Disclosure Statement (“PDS”) dated 29 September 2017 for the Cromwell Direct Property Fund (“Fund”) issued by Cromwell Funds Management Limited (“CFM”). This SPDS contains important information that updates the PDS and should be read in conjunction with the PDS. Terms contained within this SPDS have the same meaning as set out in the PDS.

In deciding whether to acquire units in the Fund, you should consider the PDS and the SPDS. From 6 April 2020, applications to invest in the Fund can only be made on an application form from the PDS with approved wording, or an approved sticker, confirming that the applicant has received, read and understood the SPDS.

The information contained in the PDS and SPDS is general information only and has been prepared without taking into account your objectives, financial situation or needs. Therefore, in deciding whether to acquire an investment in the Fund, you should consider the PDS and SPDS and assess, with or without your financial or taxation adviser whether the product fits your objectives, financial situation or needs.

COVID-19

As at the date of issue of this SPDS, investors would likely be aware of global events surrounding the rapid spread of the “COVID-19” virus. These events have led to volatility in financial markets, disruptions to cross-border travel and supply chains and restrictions on day to day activities in Australia and around the world, with uncertainty as to when the situation might stabilise and the nature and extent of the flow-on effects across different sectors of the economy. As at the date of issue of this SPDS, the Australian Government has introduced a number of significant economic stimulus and support measures; and has foreshadowed the potential for additional steps.

Investment risks

Section 4 of the PDS sets out some of the key risks of investing in the Fund, including for example risks associated with changing economic conditions, risks associated with the property market, tenancy-related risks and also disaster-related risks.

Risks such as these, if they eventuate, can potentially impact a direct property investment fund, such as the Fund, in different ways, such as the level of income the Fund receives (and therefore the level of distributions) and the valuation of the Fund’s properties.

The current COVID-19 pandemic is a global event unprecedented in modern times. The precise impact this pandemic may have upon the broader economy and the potential flow-on effects on the Fund is not yet known. What is known is that the impact on businesses will vary significantly. For example, in some cases the impact might be limited to a minor disruption during the period their workforce is required to work remotely while social distancing measures remain in place. In other industries, there may be longer term repercussions.

The Fund’s income is dependent upon its tenants paying their rent, in accordance with their leases. Depending on the nature of a tenant’s business, there is a risk that current events will adversely impact the ability of some tenants to meet their financial obligations. This may result in the Fund, as a commercial landlord, providing temporary relief to some tenants.

The Fund’s portfolio consists mainly of office assets which Cromwell believes are less likely to experience financial hardship than some other sectors (such as retail) during this time. Cromwell expects tenants within the portfolio to experience some mild to moderate disruption while social distancing measures implemented to fight the spread of COVID-19 remain in place, but they should be well positioned to recover as social distancing measures are lifted.

Cromwell continues to monitor the situation and will provide regular updates to investors on its website at www.cromwell.com.au/dpf.

COVID-19 continues to have an unprecedented and far-reaching impact across the world. Cromwell recognises the urgent nature of the emergency, the responsibility to help ‘flatten the curve’ and contribute to the ensuing recovery in all of the countries, cities and communities in which we operate.

Cromwell CEO, Paul Weightman, stated, “Almost every business in Australia has been impacted by COVID-19 in some way. The impact of the virus will undoubtedly be far reaching but at the moment it is very hard to quantify.”

Impact
Cromwell’s Head of Retail Funds Management, Hamish Wehl, discussed the implications of COVID-19 on the Cromwell Direct Property Fund (DPF/Fund).

“DPF is an unlisted property fund. Unlisted property funds, by their nature, are significantly less volatile than the share market. However, quantifying the impact to investors is extremely difficult in the current environment in which government policy is continually changing, and the duration of social distancing is unknown,” explained Mr Wehl.

“DPF’s underlying portfolio is robust with 42.9% of income attributable to government tenants and a further 30.9% of income attributable to high quality listed tenants with a Weighted Average Lease Expiry across the portfolio of 7.6 years as at 29 February 2020. Cromwell will continue to keep all investors and advisors informed of DPF’s status”. Updates will be available on the Fund’s webpage www.cromwell.com.au/dpf.

“We will be working tirelessly with all of our tenants/customers to assist with their needs where possible and continually review the rapidly changing situation,” stated Mr Wehl.

Financial Position
DPF is prudently managed, and as the COVID-19 situation continues to unfold, the Fund is in an excellent capital management position. Some key statistics include:

  • Distributions remain at 7.25 cents per unit per annum paid monthly;
  • DPF held cash of $29.7m at 31 March 2020;
  • Direct gearing (LVR) was 22.7% and the look through LVR was less than 25.0%; and
  • $68.5m of undrawn debt is available from lenders remaining within covenant.

Redemptions
The capital position of the Fund should ensure that monthly redemptions continue as per Section 7.4 the PDS, which allows for the greater of an amount equal to 0.5% of the Fund’s net asset value and (if management believes it appropriate given the Fund’s future cash requirements) the amount by which the Fund and its sub-trust’s cash exceeds 6% of its net asset value.

If the amount required to meet withdrawal requests in any month exceeds the amount CFM determines to be available, withdrawal requests will be met pro-rata.

“Cromwell and DPF are in good shape to deal with the challenges and opportunities of the COVID-19 situation as they arise. We remain open, operational and well-placed to continue to add value for unitholders,” Mr Wehl concluded.

Queanbeyan acquisition

Cromwell Direct Property Fund (Fund) has secured its seventh direct commercial property asset, located in the city of Queanbeyan, approximately 15 kilometres south-east of the Canberra CBD for an acquisition price of $35 million, reflecting a passing yield of 6.0%.

The acquisition comprises a 4,052 square metre (sqm) site with 6,300 sqm of net lettable area over a four-level commercial office building, together with basement parking for 101 vehicles, plus limited at-grade on-site spaces; all constructed in approximately 2008. The property has a 4.5-Star NABERS Energy Rating.

The Property is fully let to the NSW State Government until June 2028. The lease is a net lease, with the rent subject to biennial market reviews protected by a ‘ratchet’, with increases over the previous rent capped at 8%.

The Fund acquired the asset from a related party, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Cromwell Diversified Property Trust. All negotiations were carried out on arm’s length terms but the Directors of Cromwell Funds Management Limited have elected to reduce the acquisition fee by 50% to reflect the detailed knowledge the group already holds on the asset.

The Property has a Weighted Average Lease Expiry (WALE) of 8.5 years, and after acquisition the Fund’s overall WALE will be 8.0 years.

Fully leased to the NSW State Government, 11 Farrer Place brings greater stability to the Fund’s income and tenancy profile. The acquisition is accretive to Fund earnings and takes the Fund’s direct property portfolio to $334.7 million and the look-through property exposure to 11 assets, with a total investment value of $436.7 million.

The acquisition settled on 31 October 2019.

An external valuation of the Bunnings asset (located on the corner of Curtis Road and Frisby Road, Angle Vale, Munno Para, South Australia) as at 30 September 2019 has provided good news for Cromwell Direct Property Fund (Fund) unitholders: a 7.4% increase in the value of the asset to $33.6 million, up from the valuation of $31.3 million as at 30 September 2018. The increase was underpinned by a reduction in the capitalisation rate.

An external valuation of the Parafield Retail Complex, Parafield, SA resulted in no change to the asset value, which remains constant at $29 million, with the next external valuation due in September 2020.

The Fund also benefited from an external valuation increase to the Rand Distribution Centre, located in Direk, SA, and an external valuation increase to the 19 George Street, Dandenong asset, VIC, owned by the Cromwell Property Trust 12, in which the Fund owns units.

The valuation of the Rand Distribution Centre increased by 1.9% to $53 million, up from $52 million as at 31 March 2019.

The valuation of the George Street, Dandenong asset increased by 5% to $100 million, up from $95.2 million as at 30 September 2018.

The increase in value of the assets are expected to affect the unit price for units issued and redeemed in the Fund on and from 1 October 2019.

The Cromwell Direct Property Fund (Fund) has secured its fourth direct commercial property asset, located at 433 Boundary Street, Spring Hill, Brisbane for an acquisition price of $42 million.

The property is an elevated 3,778 square metre (sqm) site comprising a three-level office building with approximately 6,000 sqms of net lettable area.

The property’s major lease is to International Education Services (IES), a provider of education services to international students. IES occupies two of the three floors of the building on a 12-year lease, with the remaining floor to be occupied by IES when the current tenant, Opus, vacates in 2019.

The property has a Weighted Average Lease Expiry (WALE) of 10.5 years, which in turn increases the Fund’s overall WALE from 9.2 to 9.4 years.

The acquisition takes the Fund’s direct property portfolio to $115.5 million and the look-through property exposure to eight assets, with a total investment value of $196 million.

The addition of the 433 Boundary Street property asset will increase the earnings of the Fund whilst maintaining a conservative direct gearing ratio of less than 10%.

The acquisition is due to settle on 19 December 2017.

An external valuation of the Parafield Retail asset (located on Main North Road, Parafield, South Australia) as at 31 March 2017 has resulted in a 5.0% decrease in the value of the asset to $26.25 million, down from $27.6 million as at 31 March 2016.

The decrease in value was underpinned by a lower rental on Tenancy Two, situated between Officeworks and the former Masters Store. The fall in value was offset by a reduced payment to the developer as a result of the lower rental, ultimately providing a net positive effect on the Cromwell Direct Property Fund’s (“Fund”) unit price.

The updated valuations will affect the unit price for units issued and redeemed on and from 1 April 2017.

PROPOSED CONSTITUTION AMENDMENTS TO FACILITATE ADOPTION OF THE ATTRIBUTION MANAGED INVESTMENT TRUST (AMIT) REGIME

NOTICE PURSUANT TO SECTION601GCA OF THE CORPORATIONS ACT

Cromwell Direct Property Fund (ARSN 165 011 905) (“Trust”) is eligible to be an Attribution Managed Investment Trust (“AMIT”) and to apply the new income tax regime for managed investment trusts that was recently enacted under the Tax Laws Amendment (New Tax System for Managed Investment Trusts) Act 2016 (Cth)(“AMIT regime”). The key feature under the AMIT regime is unit holders are taxed on income from the Trust attributed to them by the Cromwell Funds Management Limited (“CFM”) (ABN 63 114 782 777) on a fair and reasonable basis. Under the current taxation rules under Division 6 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 (Cth) unit holders who are presently entitled to trust income are subject to income tax on their proportionate share of the taxable income of the Trust. The potential benefits of adopting the AMIT regime are outlined further below. An election to be an AMIT is irrevocable.

As the responsible entity of the Trust. CFM is yet to decide whether the Trust should elect into the new AMIT regime. CFM has published this notice under notional subsection 601GCA(3) of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) as modified by ASIC Corporations (Attribution Managed Investment Trusts) Instrument 2016/489 to inform unit holders of proposed modifications to be made to the Constitution of the Trust (“Constitution”) to allow the Trust to operate under the AMIT regime if an election is made. CFM will decide whether to elect into the AMIT regime based on the best interests of the unit holders as a whole. If an election is made, the Trust will inform unit holders accordingly.

A summary of the effect of the proposed modifications to the Constitution is set out below.

Reasons for proposed amendments to the Constitution
If implemented, the proposed amendments would allow CFM to choose to adopt the AMIT regime to the Trust. CFM believes the potential benefits of operating under the AMIT regime include:

  • Greater certainty associated with the AMIT regimes attribution of taxable income to unit holders compared to the current “present entitlement” tax regime.
  • Greater certainty as to the tax status of the Trust and its entitlement to certain tax concessions including deemed “fixed trust” status for tax purposes.
  • Reduced potential for double taxation by allowing for cost base adjustments where distributions are less than the taxable income assessed to the unit holder.
  • Preservation of the character of the income for income tax purposes in the hands of the unit holder.
  • Provision of the ability to reconcile “under” and “over” estimations of net income of the Trust to allow adjustments in the year they are discovered rather than the approach under the current law that requires amendments to unit holders previously lodged income tax returns.

As the AMIT regime has only recently been enacted, there may be some uncertainty regarding certain aspects of the AMIT regimes operation in the initial years.

How to contact us if you wish to respond to this notice
CFM will proceed to modify the Constitution as proposed on or after the date which is 7 days from the date of this notice unless it receives requisitions to call and arrange a meeting of unit holders of the Trust to consider and vote on a special resolution to modify the Constitution as proposed from unit holders with at least 5% of the votes that may be cast on the resolution.

Unit holders are not required to respond to this notice, but should a unit holder wish to request a meeting of unit holders of the Trust to vote on the amendments to the Constitution as proposed in this notice, the unit holder must send a request to CFM by 5pm (AEST) on Friday, 24 March 2017. A written request may be sent by email to invest@cromwell.com.au.

CFM will modify the Constitution by executing a supplemental deed to the Constitution and lodging it with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, unless a meeting of unit holders is requested by unit holders with at least 5% of the votes that may be cast on the resolution to call and arrange to hold a meeting by 5pm (AEST) on Friday, 24 March 2017.

Effect of amendments to the Constitution
Set out below is a summary of the effect of the proposed modifications to the Constitution. CFM as responsible entity of the Trust reasonably considers that the modifications are necessary for or incidental to the Trust being able to be operated in a manner permitted by the AMIT regime as an attribution managed investment trust with the CFM as its trustee.

Summary of Amendments to the Constitution of Cromwell Direct Property Fund

Powers in relation to AMIT

A new clause 17.7 will be inserted in the Constitution to ensure the Responsible Entity has all powers necessary to adopt into the AMIT regime including doing all things necessary to give effect to the proposed clause 32A.

Recoveries – Holders’ liabilities

A new paragraph (e) will be inserted to clause 31.1 to clarify that any fees, Taxes and costs incurred in relation to Attribution Amounts are the liability of each unit holder.

Distributions – Application

A new clause 32.1A will be inserted to “switch off” clause 32 when the Trust elects to be an AMIT, in particular it “switches off” the distribution and present entitlement requirements when the Trust is an AMIT. Clause 32 is relevant to Division 6 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 (Cth).

AMIT

A new clause 32A will be inserted which contains the general powers for the Responsible Entity to comply with the new AMIT rules.

Clause 32A.1 provides the Responsible Entity with the discretion to choose to apply the AMIT rules.

Clause 32A.2 determines the period that the Trust is an AMIT.

Clause 32A.3 allows the Responsible Entity to attribute “Attribution Amounts” (as defined) in accordance with the Constitution, this is a feature of the new AMIT rules. The definition utilises consistent terminology with the applicable Tax Act (as defined) to allow flexibility to attribute amounts of different character.

Clause 32A.3(b) provides a discretion for the Responsible Entity to distribute any amount of income or capital of the Trust to unit holders.

Clause 32A.3(c) provides that any taxes paid or remitted on behalf of a unit holder are taken to be made for that unit holder.

Clause 32A.3(d) confers specific powers on the Responsible Entity to issue and amend “AMMA Statements” to unit holders.

Clause 32A.3(e) facilitates the exercise of the Responsible Entity’s powers in relation to “unders and overs” as permitted in the AMIT regime.

Clause 32A.3(f) limits the Responsible Entity’s liability to the Holders in making choices and complying with the AMIT rules.

Unit holder Objections

Proposed clause 32A.4 provides steps to ensure that should a unit holder object to an attribution as afforded under the AMIT regime, the unit holder must give notice and provide information to the Responsible Entity and the unit holder must meet all costs or liabilities incurred by the Responsible Entity associated with the process of acknowledging the objection and assessing the impact on other unit holders.

Further, each unit holder indemnifies the Responsible Entity for any tax payable by the Responsible Entity in complying with the AMIT rules that reasonably relates to the unit holder.

Definitions

Incidental amendments will include inserting into clause 1.1 specific definitions relevant for the AMIT regime in Clause 1.1. The definitions of these specific terms have been drafted consistently with the Tax Act to preserve the intended flexibility of the legislation.

An external valuation of 64 Allara Street, Canberra as at 31 December 2016 for the Cromwell Direct Property Fund (“Fund”) has resulted in a slight (1.7%) decrease in the value of the asset to $16.9 million, down from the valuation of $17.2 million as at 31 March 2016.

Cromwell Funds Management Limited (“CFM”) is pleased to announce that distributions for the Cromwell Direct Property Fund (“Fund”) have been increased to 7.0 cents per unit (“cpu”) from July 2016.

CFM’s decision to increase distributions by the Fund was underpinned by an increase in annual rental income for the Fund, in addition to the Masters Parafield, SA building reaching practical completion and subsequent commencement of the lease, and the upcoming practical completion of the Bunnings Munno Para West, SA building (due early August 2016).

The increased distribution is consistent with the Fund’s Distribution Policy of distributing no more than 100% of the Fund’s expected profits available for distribution in the medium term (see Section 1.5 of the Fund’s Product Disclosure Statement dated 21 August 2013). Based on the current unit price of approximately $1.15, this distribution equates to an annualised yield of approximately 6.1% per annum.

In May 2015, Cromwell Funds Management (“CFM”) drew investors’ attention to the Cromwell Direct Property Fund’s accumulation of significant cash holdings which had a negative impact on the underlying earnings of the Fund. At the same time, the Reserve Bank of Australia further reduced Australian cash rates due to economic uncertainty.

As a responsible fund manager, CFM determined it would adopt a conservative approach and reduce distributions to 4.75 cents per unit (“cpu”) until it was in a position to deploy the cash holdings to the acquisition of suitable income generating asset/s capable of supporting a more attractive distribution yield.

We are pleased to announce that the Fund has agreed to acquire two properties for a total consideration of $44.2 million and can now increase distributions to 6.00 cpu. The August distribution, expected to be paid on 10 September, will reflect the increased distribution.

64 Allara Street is a seven level commercial office building in the heart of Canberra in the ACT. The major leases to Jacobs and CIC provide a secure cash flow with 90% of gross passing income collectively, and lease expiry dates in 2021 and 2018, respectively. Further details, click here

Masters Parafield is fund-through project in the burgeoning suburb of Parafield, north of Adelaide. The 3.7 hectare site will be the home of a new Masters Home Improvement Centre, a Hungry Jack’s and two other smaller retail tenancies with a combined net lettable area of 17,679 sqm. Further details, click here

The increased distribution is consistent with the Fund’s Distribution Policy of distributing no more than 100% of the Fund’s expected profits available for distribution in the medium term (see Section 1.5 of the Fund’s PDS). Based on the current unit price of approximately $1.10, this distribution equates to an annualised yield of approximately 5.5% pa.

Cromwell Direct Property Fund Distributions Reduced To 4.75 Cents Per Unit From 1 May 2015

For some time now the Cromwell Direct Property Fund (“the Fund”) has been cautiously building up its cash reserves to fund an acquisition. This cash build up has had a negative impact on the underlying earnings of the Fund. As a result the decision has been made that, from 1 May 2015, distribution payments will be reduced from the current 7.25 cents per unit to 4.75 cents per unit. The reduction is consistent with the Fund’s Distribution Policy of distributing no more than 100% of the Fund’s expected profits available for distribution in the medium term (see Section 1.5 of the Fund’s PDS). Distributions will continue to be paid monthly.

Australia’s official cash rate is currently 2.25% (its lowest level since the 1950s). Cash rates around most of the developed world are even lower. As a result, there continues to be a flood of short term money chasing relatively high yielding property assets in Australia. In these market conditions it is challenging to acquire properties at prices that we believe will deliver long term value. In other words, Cromwell believes that in some instances market risk is not being appropriately priced.

We believe that property is a long term investment and that patience in the current market will pay off in the longer term.

Notwithstanding these conditions Cromwell has been working hard to identify properties that meet the Fund’s investment strategy and further its investment objective. We are well advanced in due diligence on a number of properties and, should the Fund acquire one or more of them, underlying earnings should increase and distributions are expected to increase accordingly.

We will update investors within the next three months.

Until such time, Cromwell will not charge its ongoing management fee of 0.6% per annum of the Fund’s gross assets. We will continue to recover the costs of running the Fund, which are capped at 0.2% per annum of the Fund’s gross assets.

We appreciate your patience in this matter and should you have any questions in regard to this decision please call Cromwell Investor Services on 1300 276 693.

Since Cromwell Funds Management Limited (“CFM”), as responsible entity of the Cromwell Direct Property Fund (“DPF” or “the Fund”), issued the Product Disclosure Statement for the Fund on 21 August 2013, there have been no changes to the RG46 disclosure principles for the Fund.

Cromwell Property Group (ASX: CMW) has launched a new unlisted property investment, the Cromwell Direct Property Fund (the “Fund”), to satisfy market demand for a property investment vehicle capable of providing monthly income from a portfolio of quality property assets.

The Fund, which has a suggested investment timeframe of seven years, will commence monthly distributions at 7% pa1 (based on a $1.00 unit price) and offer a tax-advantaged income stream2 combined with the potential for capital growth1.

The Fund aims to provide a total return in excess of its benchmark, the PCA/IPD Australian Pooled Property Fund Index – Unlisted Retail, which measures the total returns of a range of unlisted property trusts managed by a variety of fund managers throughout Australia.

CEO Paul Weightman said that exposure to quality property was an essential part of any well diversified portfolio.

In an economic environment which continues to see low growth and historically low cash rates, this Fund offers an attractive alternative,” Mr Weightman said.

Investors in the Fund will gain exposure to the income derived from each of Cromwell’s four existing property trusts which own, or have contracted to acquire, six properties across Queensland, Victoria and South Australia.

Mr Weightman said the make-up of the initial investment portfolio would provide investors with diversification and access to a strong income stream from six properties.

As the Fund grows, we will continue to target assets in Australian capital cities and major regional centres, with a focus on quality tenants, long leases and newer assets with strong after tax returns.”

The Fund intends to offer a limited monthly withdrawal facility from July 2015 and a full withdrawal opportunity from July 2020 and every three years thereafter.

Cromwell has flagged it intends to launch additional property funds before the end of the year, including the Cromwell Property Trust 12 which recently contracted to acquire three assets and will form part of the Cromwell Direct Property Fund’s initial investment portfolio.
