The proceeds will be used for new investments into real estate properties.
The new units will be issued in two parts: 8,699,592 new units are expected to be issued on or around 4 October 2019 and 3,772,731 new units to UAB Prosperus Strategic RE Fund are to be issued shortly after the closing of acquisition of North Star, expected on or around 11 October 2019.
