Argosy Property Limited ("Argosy")
Senior secured fixed rate green bonds ("Green Bonds")
The obligations of Argosy to pay interest on the Green Bonds and for the repayment of the Green Bonds on the Maturity Date are guaranteed by certain subsidiaries of Argosy, being Argosy Property Management Limited, Argosy Property No. 1 Limited and Argosy Property No. 3 Limited (together, the "Guaranteeing Subsidiaries"). The Green Bonds are not guaranteed by any other member of the Argosy Group or by any other person.
The Green Bonds are secured by a general security interest granted by Argosy and the Guaranteeing Subsidiaries over all of their property (except any property held by it as trustee), together with first ranking Mortgages granted over all of the land (including the buildings and other fixtures on that land) owned by them. The guarantee and security interests are granted in favour of the Security Trustee for the benefit of all of the Secured Parties (including Holders) and can only be enforced in accordance with the Security Trust Deed.
Refer to the PDS for more detail on Security.
Use of proceeds
The proceeds of the offer are intended to be used to refinance existing bank debt that supports "Green Assets". Green Assets are office, industrial or retail buildings, including upgrades, owned or undertaken by members of the Argosy Group that meet certain criteria established by Argosy in Argosy's "Green Bond Framework" and therefore promote the transition to a sustainable future. The funds from the Green Bonds may be internally allocated to other Green Assets in accordance with the Green Bond Framework.
Argosy has developed and adopted the Green Bond Framework to ensure that, as at the date of the PDS, the Green Bonds comply with the Green Bond Principles.
Refer to the PDS for more detail on Green Assets, the Green Bond Framework and the Green Bond Principles.
No Event of Default in relation to Green Bond Framework or Green Bond Principles
• Argosy fails to comply with the Green Bond Framework;
• Argosy or any Green Asset fails to comply with any environmental laws and standards;
• the Green Bonds cease to satisfy the Green Bond Principles, as described at Section 5.2 of the PDS; or
• Argosy fails to notify Holders that the Green Bonds cease to comply with the Green Bond Framework or the Green Bond Principles,
• no Event of Default will occur in relation to the Green Bonds; and
• neither the Holders nor Argosy have any right for the Green Bonds to be repaid early.
This means there is no obligation on Argosy to comply with the Green Bond Framework or the Green Bond Principles on an ongoing basis.
Under the Trust Deed, Argosy will ensure that the total principal amount of all indebtedness that is secured by the Secured Assets is no more than 50% of the Mortgaged Property Value.
If Argosy breaches the loan to value ratio under the Trust Deed, it must remedy the breach within 6 months of the time that the non-compliance is required to be reported to the Supervisor. If Argosy does not meet this covenant after that 6 month period, Argosy must notify the Supervisor and all Holders of the breach, together with its plan to remedy the breach. If Argosy is still in breach of this covenant after an additional 6 month period, an Event of Default occurs.
Refer to the PDS and Trust Deed for more detail on the loan to value ratio.
Under the Trust Deed, Argosy will not make any distributions if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, or would occur as a result of making that distribution.
Refer to the PDS and Trust Deed for more detail on the Events of Default.
