Roxy-Pacific Holdings said its indirect subsidiary, Roxy Australia Capital, has invested in a 40% interest in TE-Roxy Commercial Trust I.

This is a Singapore master trust with a committed capital of AUD 27,200,000 based on an agreed projected capital contributions schedule.

TE-Roxy Commercial Trust I will in turn own:

(a) 100% interest in TECT I, a Singapore subsidiary, and

(b) together with TECT I, 100% interest in TE Australian Trust I, an Australian head trust and TE Skyhigh Trust, an Australian sub-trust (collectively, the “Trust Group”).

The committed capital will be financed by internal funds.

In essence, Roxy-Pacific is recycling capital following the completion of its Aussie development project West End Residences at end-2019 and Octavia Killara early this year.

The 60% interest in TE-Roxy Commercial Trust I is held by TE2 Group, the private family office of Mr. Teo Tong Lim, Managing Director of Tong Eng Group.

Roxy Australia Capital will enter into an agreement with TE2 Group in order to govern the rights and obligations of each of the investors in relation to the units in the Trust Group.
