Aurora is mindful of the impacts on AUP’s liquidity following the cessation of trading on the
Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). Aurora is currently working on several initiatives to
enable AUP’s loans to be repaid, including the potential refinancing and/or sale of RNY’s
properties. Following the execution of these initiatives, AUP will endeavour to fund off-market redemptions, taking into consideration the liquidity of the Trust.
RNY’s portfolio has continued to maintain its occupancy at pre-pandemic levels, with
increased leasing interest being shown across properties. Furthermore, RNY has received
several unsolicited offers for its properties at values at least equal to current valuations.
RNY is currently considering these offers and will update RNY unitholders accordingly.
