Peet land syndicate raises $22m

The latest capital raising for Peet's residential land syndicate, the Peet Point Cook Kingsford Syndicate has closed oversubscribed with investors applying for more
than 22 million units.

Peet Limited managing director and chief executive, Brendan Gore said such strong support in a challenging market indicates the company's strategy to build on its existing investor base, in terms of numbers and geographical spread, is working very effectively.

"Subscriptions from new Peet investors accounted for more than 40 per cent of the total capital raised, and East Coast subscribers make up more than 35 per cent of all Kingsford Syndicate investors," he said in a statement.

The Kingsford Syndicate will develop a residential community in Point Cook, an established suburb of Melbourne, some 25 kilometres south-west of the CBD.

The property is already zoned for residential development and planning for a 567-lot residential estate is well underway.

Peet is Australia's largest and most experienced residential land syndicator and the Kingsford
Syndicate will be the 29th syndicated project currently under its management.
