    • 8.8% FUM growth from 31 December 2023
    • 45.7% FUM growth from 30 June 2023.
  • 90% of the options issued by Qualitas to ADIA on 1 August 2022, representing 8.96% of Qualitas’ issued equity on a fully diluted basis, are now exercisable. The strike price is based on the volume-weighted average issue price of Qualitas shares, currently at $2.50 per share3.

Qualitas Limited (ASX: QAL) (Qualitas or Company), a leading Australian alternative real estate investment manager, is pleased to announce a commitment of up to A$300 million from a wholly owned subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) for the existing QDCI platform.

This represents ADIA’s third commitment to QDCI and brings the total committed capital of QDCI to A$1.67 billion since ADIA’s initial investment in August 2022.

The latest commitment from ADIA will see A$220 million activated immediately for deployment and the remaining A$80 million will be activated at ADIA’s discretion (with no certainty that it will be activated in whole or in part). The mandate continues to have a wide investment scope, focusing on the growing Australian commercial real estate (CRE) private credit market and senior credit strategies.

Qualitas’ co-investment in QDCI remains at A$50 million4.

In August 20225, Qualitas granted options to ADIA under which ADIA may acquire up to 32,630,374 new ordinary shares in Qualitas, representing up to 9.86% of issued equity on a fully diluted basis1, if it committed incremental investment mandates totalling up to A$1.7 billion. Following ADIA’s latest commitment, it can now exercise options in respect of up to 29,367,337 shares based on the activated component increase of A$220 million. The strike price is based on the volume-weighted average issue price of Qualitas shares, currently at $2.50 per share3.

Qualitas gives no assurance that all or any of the options that are now exercisable will be exercised. Any options not exercised will expire on 1 August 2024.

Andrew Schwartz, Group Managing Director and Co-Founder of Qualitas, said:

QDCI has performed well since inception and the pipeline continues to grow. This latest increase in commitment from ADIA demonstrates the depth of opportunities within the Australian CRE private credit market and further evidences Qualitas’ ability to attract, retain and grow our institutional investor base – a key differentiator in the current environment.”
