“Other than the cumulative distribution to which the new units will not be entitled, the new units issued pursuant to the private placement will, upon issue, rank pari passu in all respects with the units in issue,” the firm highlighted in an announcement.

The cumulative distribution is intended to ensure that the distributable income accrued by Suntec REIT up to the day immediately preceding the date of issue of the new units, which will be entirely attributable to the existing units, is only distributed in respect of the existing units, and was proposed as a means to ensure fairness to existing holders.
