SAGICOR Real Estate X Fund raised $5.2 billion in its upsized rights issue describing it as the largest offer of its kind to date.
The fund will use the funds to aid it in the purchase of a US hotel close to Universal Studios and Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
“Thanks for making this Jamaica’s largest rights issue,” stated Sagicor X Fund in a statement this week about its oversubscribed rights issue.
The issue, which raised 747 million shares at $6.95, closed on September 2. The upsized issue indicated market support for its first hotel acquisition outside Jamaica on a property that on the surface earns less per room than its existing four hotels, but would represent one of its largest acquisitions.
