The retail property specialist said it has identified three near-term acquisition opportunities, with one asset currently under exclusivity and the other two assets in advanced due diligence.
It said all three assets are occupied by J Sainsbury PLC (LON:SBRY), providing "strong rental security over the longer term". The assets benefit from long leases linked to the retail price index -- the higher measure of inflation -- as well as low site cover.
To finance the deals, shares will be issued at a price of 102p each, representing a 5.1% discount to Wednesday’s closing price of 107.5p.
“We have made significant progress since our IPO in July 2017, growing our portfolio to more than £420mln and delivering total shareholder returns of 16.1%, “said chairman Nick Hewson.
"We rapidly deployed the £45mln we raised in our oversubscribed placing in March and the investment adviser has now identified three further near-term acquisition opportunities in respect of which new funds could be deployed.
“These assets all meet with our strict investment criteria and, once purchased, will enhance our portfolio by increasing portfolio net initial yield and providing further geographic diversification."
