How to handle the Stride Investore restructure

by Corporate Actions Desk | Jul 14th 2016

NZX-listed property companies Stride Property Limited and Investore announced a restructure of their entities to create an investment and management structure which is “fit for future purpose” and which will permit Stride to retain its PIE tax status while allowing its real estate investment management business to grow.

What the Stride Investore restructure means for investors

Under the Restructuring, Shareholders will continue to own all of Stride’s business and shareholders will retain their existing Stride Shares. In addition they will receive the same number of shares in Stride Investment Management Limited (SIML) these will trade together as a stapled security under the new name ‘Stride Property Ltd & Stride Investment Management Ltd’ (SPG). At the same time Stride will demerge Investore by distributing shares in it to Stride shareholders and certain eligible Stride shareholders will have the opportunity to acquire further shares in Investore during its IPO (Initial Public Offering).
