The company has announced an equity raising to pay down debt and fund the CEREIT acquisition. The $300m equity raising will be via a rights issue. Macquarie calculates this is around -5% dilutive to FY19 earnings in isolation.
However the downside to FY20 is more severe, largely reflecting EUR1.1bn in mandates that are due to expire in 2019. As the profit base is still declining the broker believes there is pressure on the distribution.
Underperform rating is maintained. Target is reduced to $0.98 from $1.
