Theoretical Pegged Price for ALOG + ESR-REIT & MCT + MNACT Mergers

There are quite a number of REITs mergers in recent years, first the ESR-REIT + Viva Industrial Trust; secondly Ascott Residence Trust + Ascendas Hospitality Trust and thirdly Fraser Logistics & Industrial Trust + Frasers Commercial Trust. The merger spree did not stop at 3, it is followed by OUE Commercial + OUE Hospitality Trust and then CapitaLand Mall Trust + CapitaLand Commercial Trust. Subsequently, there is a proposed merger of ESR-REIT + Sabana Industrial REIT, however, it did not go through in the end though.

The 2 recently proposed mergers are ESR-REIT + ARA LOGOS Logistics Trust and Mapletree Commercial Trust + Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust. Many bloggers and YouTubers have posted about the pros, cons as well as future prospects of these mergers, so I would not go through that again. Instead, I would share the theoretical pegged price table which no one has shared to date.

1) ESR-REIT + ALOG Merger

Based on the above consideration, below is the theoretical pegged price table:

The EGM would be conducted on 27 Jan 2022, AM for ESR-REIT and PM for ALOG. If the deal goes through, then it is expected to be completed by March. Refer below for indicative timeline:

2) MCT + MNACT Merger

Based on the above options, I have indicated 4 decimal points in the table below to have a better comparison of both options:

If you are MNACT unitholders, to maximize your benefit, scheme 2 is the better option when MCT price is above (and equal to) S$ 2.01. Vice versa, scheme 1 is the better option when MCT price is below (and equal to) S$ 2.00. Although the difference is small, it would be a good sum if one is holding substantial units of MNACT. The EGM is expected to be held in April, and the merger is expected to be completed in June if the deal goes through. Below is the indicative timeline:

Compare the REITs share price movement after a week of both merger announcements: ESR-REIT rose around 2%; ALOG declined around 5% while MCT declined around 8%. Whereas for MNACT, the share price rose before the announcement and remain more or less the same after a week of announcement. From these price movements, one can gauge the mergers are more in favor to which REIT.
