ApexHi CEO Gerald Leissner says 66 properties were sold to Dipula for R334 milion at a yield of 10,1% and 38 properties to Mergence for R334 million at a yield of 9,8%.

“The proceeds of the sale are being invested in refurbishment projects currently being undertaken by ApexHi worth more than R500 million, at yields of between 10% and 12%,” he says.

The number of properties in the portfolio will reduce by 25%, while the value of the property portfolio only reduces by 8%. This disposal should result in the improved management of the remaining portfolio.

“The transaction is revenue enhancing for ApexHi and allows the company to take advantage of the satisfactory prices being achieved by the sale, to take a view on certain geographical nodes where ApexHi sees limited growth potential and to dispose of smaller buildings located in areas difficult to access.
