Update On Arena’s Listing Plan

Morgan Stanley Real Estate Investing’s Arena Investment Management is planning to get listed. The company is looking at the best way to deliver liquidity to investors in both its property and office funds, and will present its latest strategy at an investor day on March 18, 2014. According to the news report, Arena has been mulling a combined float of its office and property funds, though it could first run a selective sale of some assets in order to capitalize on huge demand for commercial sites in Australia. A potential float could combine the Arena Office Fund. Post asset sales, the property and office funds’ remaining $400m in assets under management would be rolled into a new vehicle to IPO (Initial Public offering), which would be a pure-play office fund. Arena has been fielding unsolicited offers besides evaluating listing. The report added that Arena would likely look to sell 280 George Street, Sydney, and a $12 million office site in Dandenong, as well as two industrial sites on long-term leases to Woolworths.

Arena Plans IPO

Arena Investment Management plans initial public offering. Morgan Stanley Real Estate Investing's Arena Investment Management is yet to pour cold water over plans for a potential listing of its $550 million office portfolio. Arena flagged the possibility of an initial public offering in 2013, and it is understood that in the last month, it has been quietly running the numbers on a potential listing, sounding out major investment banks like Macquarie Group, UBS, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. Arena needs a liquidity mechanism for its other funds within two years and a float would make sense. An adviser is yet to be appointed.
