TORONTO, Oct. 26, 2021 /CNW/ - Starlight U.S. Multi-Family (No. 1) Core Plus Fund (TSXV: SCPO) (the "Fund") is pleased to announce the completion of the Fund's previously announced transaction (the "Transaction"), pursuant to which the Fund sold its portfolio of seven multi-family properties totaling 2,219 units located in the southern United States (the "Fund Portfolio") to Sherrin U.S. Multi-Family (No. 1) Holding LP (the "Purchaser") pursuant to an acquisition agreement dated September 10, 2021. An overwhelming number of the Fund's unitholders (the "Unitholders") approved the Transaction at the special meeting of Unitholders held on October 19, 2021.
"We would like to thank our Unitholders for their continued support of the Starlight U.S. Multi-Family platform and for their strong participation in Starlight U.S. Multi-Family (No.1) Core Plus Fund. We are proud of the performance of the Fund's properties, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has resulted in Unitholders earning significant returns that materially exceeded our initial targeted internal rate of return," said Evan Kirsh, President of the Fund's general partner.
The Transaction valued the Fund Portfolio at approximately US$600.0 million. After adjustment for the Fund's closing working capital of US$2.6 million and capital expenditures incurred up to the closing of the Transaction of US$2.4 million, the total cash proceeds to the Fund were US$271.2 million, with the Purchaser indirectly assuming all of the Fund's existing debt in the amount of approximately US$ 333.8 million.
The proceeds from the Transaction will be distributed to the Unitholders as soon as practicable by way of a cash distribution per unit of the Fund ("Unit") in the following approximate amounts:
The net proceeds of the Transaction, after applicable U.S. taxes paid, will be distributed to Unitholders as part of the cancellation of all issued and outstanding Units other than the Units beneficially owned and controlled by Daniel Drimmer. Any U.S. taxes paid from the Fund's proceeds of disposition are generally expected to be recognized as having been paid by the Unitholders for purposes of the foreign tax credit and foreign tax deduction rules in the Income Tax Act (Canada), subject to the detailed rules and limitations therein.
The Class A Units are expected to be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange effective as of the close of trading on October 26, 2021. The Fund will cease to be a reporting issuer in each of the provinces of Canada in which it was a reporting issuer thereafter.
