About Mirvac

Mirvac is a leading Australian property group with approximately $21 billion of assets under management. Operations include both commercial and residential projects, primarily based in Sydney and Melbourne, but also include Brisbane and Perth developments. Mirvac now has 47 years of experience since their establishment in 1972.

FY19 Guidance And Equity Raising

Mirvac announced that FY19 earnings are expected to be at the top end of previous guidance; an EPS of 17.1 cents per stapled security (cpss). This represents 4% growth on FY18. Distribution guidance was also re-affirmed as 11.6cpss, or growth of 5% on FY18.

Mirvac also announced an equity raising comprising of a $750 million fully underwritten institutional placement and a $75 million non-underwritten security purchase plan.

Mirvac CEO and Managing Director Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz said the new funds will be used to repay debt and fund future developments.

“Mirvac continues to deliver on its $3.1 billion active and committed development pipeline that is fully funded,” she said.

“This new equity will be used to repay debt and provide certainty of funding to activate our future, secured commercial development pipeline that has an estimated end value of over $4 billion.

“It will also provide capacity for a number of identified acquisition opportunities currently under due diligence with an estimated end value of over $2 billion.”

The institutional placement will be launched at a fixed price of $2.97 per new stapled security, which is a 4.2% discount to Mirvac’s last closing price.

FY20 Guidance

Mirvac also announced preliminary FY20 guidance, estimating DPS growth of 5% and EPS growth greater than 2% compared to FY19. The payout ratio is expected to stay the same, at around 70%.

The share purchase plan will be open to eligible shareholders from 4th June 2019. Mirvac shares are expected to remain in a trading halt until tomorrow, 30th May 2019.
