The acquisitions, made with the additional cash raised at listing and additional units issued, would be yield-enhancing and contribute to meeting the fund's forecast earnings of 69 cents per share, said executive director Gary Fisher.

The landmark 3,800 square metre Simons Town Boardwalk Centre is located on the Simons Town waterfront and caters for the growing tourist market visiting the area. The other properties comprise six multi-tenanted Gauteng office buildings including Gateway Park, Gate Creek and Green Oaks in Midrand, and Duam Properties, ENK Trust and JH Moselein in Randburg.

In the month since its listing, CBS linked units have gained 8.2%, rising from their 6.75 rand issue price per linked unit to reach 7.30 rand per linked unit at close on Friday, December 2.
