The preferential offering is part of a larger equity funding exercise to raise S$421.7 million in gross proceeds, part of which will be used to finance all or part of the acquisition of a one-third interest in Waterway Point and to pare down the bridging loans used for FCT's acquisition of the 18.8 per cent stake in PGIM Real Estate Asia Retail Fund.
