UPDATE ANNOUNCEMENT - ACQUISITION OF FOUR RETAIL SHOPPING CENTRES IN FRANCE AND WITHDRAWAL OF CAUTIONARY
On 27 July 2021, Lighthouse announced the acquisition of a portfolio of four French retail shopping centres (the
"Portfolio") from Wereldhave Retail France SAS ("WRF"), subject to the finalisation of funding and structuring
with the flexibility to introduce co-investors to WRF. Pending the finalisation of these details, Lighthouse remained
under cautionary as it had not yet determined the extent of the Company's investment in the Portfolio.
As Lighthouse has now finalised its equity raise undertaken on 12 August 2021, the Company advises that its
preference is to acquire a 75% interest in the Portfolio, which amendment has been agreed with WRF, but subject to
a third party acquiring the balance of the Portfolio. WRF reached agreement with Resilient REIT Limited
("Resilient") with regard to the acquisition by Resilient of a 25% interest in the Portfolio, subject to exchange control
approval and WRF supervisory board approval. Should Resilient obtain these approvals, Lighthouse will reduce its
investment in the Portfolio accordingly. The Company will implement its 75% acquisition via an entity newly
incorporated in France, on the same remaining terms as previously announced.
The Lighthouse group pro forma gearing after acquisition of the Portfolio is expected to be circa 14%.
In light of the disclosure contained in this announcement, shareholders are no longer advised to exercise caution
when dealing in their Lighthouse shares.
The Company has primary listings on both the Official Market of the Stock Exchange of Mauritius Ltd ("SEM") and
the Main Board of the JSE Limited ("JSE").
