CPGFS will offer Noteholders the opportunity to participate on a Facility by Facility basis. Each specific opportunity will be described in a Supplementary IM that will be issued for each Facility (including interest rate and anticipated term).

The Issuer will allocate each Facility to a Series of Loan Notes. For each Facility the Issuer will issue Loan Notes in the relevant Series to participating Noteholders.

The number of Loan Notes on offer in respect of a specific Facility will be set out in the Supplementary IM for that Facility.

The Issuer may issue fully or partly paid Loan Notes. The issue price for each issue of Loan Notes will be set out in the Supplementary IM for the Facility.

LIMITED RECOURSE

The Series Assets are not available in any circumstances to meet any obligations of the Issuer in respect of any other Series and if, upon enforcement of the General Security Deed, sufficient funds are not realised to discharge in full the obligations of the Issuer in respect of the Series, no further claims may be made against the Issuer in respect of such obligations and no claims may be made against any assets in respect of any other Series.

INTEREST RATE

CO-INVESTMENT

The Manager and its associates (including funds managed by the Manager and associates) may co-invest in any individual Facility, either through Loan Notes or directly through the relevant Obligor. 

ELIGIBILITY

Only investors who are Wholesale Clients, investors to whom a disclosure document is not required to be given pursuant to Chapter 6D of the Corporations Act and investors in any other jurisdiction where it would not be unlawful to offer Loan Notes for subscription, are eligible to invest in Loan Notes. Noteholders may be required to provide evidence of their status including a certificate from an accountant. Further details will be set out in the relevant application form.

The Issuer may choose to accept, reject or scale back any application at its discretion without providing reasons.

About Centennial Property Group

The Issuer is managed by CPG Lending Pty Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Centennial Property Group (“CPG“). CPG was established in 2012 as a private family office style property investment group specialising in actively managed property investments, developments and property-backed lending. Since that time it has undertaken transactions with a total value of $1.6 billion and has provided consistently compelling risk adjusted returns to its investors. However, potential investors should note that past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance and should not be relied upon in making a decision to invest in Loan Notes.

The underlying loan portfolio will comprise loans for property investments and projects with similar characteristics to the property projects in which CPG has invested its Centennial Mortgage Opportunities Fund. The loans will typically be on less conservative lending terms than those offered by banks (constrained by Basel III and regulatory requirements) and thereby achieve an enhanced return for the Investors.

Interested parties should contact Crystal Wang at CPG on +61 407 667 680 or [email protected]  to obtain a copy of the confidential Information Memorandum which has been prepared for the purpose of enabling eligible Investors to understand the key features of the Loan Notes to be issued under the Program.
