New IPO - Babcock & Brown Communities Group




Initial Public Offer
Babcock & Brown Communities Group


Babcock & Brown Communities Group

CommSec is pleased to inform you of the opportunity to invest in Babcock & Brown Communities Group (BBCG).

BBCG represents the consolidation of three significant Senior Living businesses, Primelife, the PrimeLiving Trust and the Fini Portfolio, into Australia's largest listed "pure play" Senior Living business and provides an exciting opportunity for investors to be part of an industry leading investment platform.

BBCG offers an opportunity to invest in an integrated Senior Living business which it expects to deliver a combination of an attractive income yield with strong growth potential from its portfolio of 61 established and 18 developing Senior Living communities across Australia and New Zealand.

BBCG expects to benefit from the increasing demand for Senior Living products and services in Australia and New Zealand driven by an ageing population and a growing acceptance of Senior Living communities as these markets mature. BBCG believes it will be well positioned for growth, both organically, through its fully owned development pipeline of 2,110 Retirement Village units and 171 Aged Care beds, and through targeted accretive acquisitions.

BBCG expects to pay an annualised distribution yield of 8%1. These distributions are expected to be fully tax deferred.
