Provincia is now seeking to raise $5,317,602 to contribute towards towards the purchase of a property at Greenmount Drive in East Tāmaki, Auckland (under contract) with the balance being funded by bank debt. When purchased the weighted average lease term will increase to 4.5years and the portfolio value to $82m.

Provincia invests in quality, mid-sized industrial properties in growth areas of New Zealand that have sound economics. Provincia's strategy is to provide the closest alternative to direct property ownership as possible, targeting a pre-tax cash yield of 5.5% p.a. plus capital growth.
Provincia is an open-ended PIE fund. As such it will continue to add to its portfolio of properties, thereby further diversifying investment risk across multiple properties and tenants.
Provincia currently owns ten industrial properties with a total value of $74 million and combined rental income of $4.1 million p.a.
It is anticipated that Provincia will continue to grow as further investment properties are identified and existing investors will be offered the first opportunity to reinvest.
Shareholders own shares in Provincia and will be entitled to receive dividends. Provincia's current distribution policy is to pay quarterly dividends from distributable profits, targeting a pre-tax cash yield of 5.5% p.a.
Shareholders will also benefit from any increases in the value of the property portfolio which will be directly reflected in the value of the shares they hold.
