Ichigo Real Estate Investment Corporation Proposes Amendments to its Articles of Incorporation
Jul 14 15
Ichigo Real Estate Investment Corporation decided at its board meeting held on July 17, 2015, to submit amendments to its Articles of Incorporation at the Ichigo REIT shareholder meeting scheduled for September 5, 2015. The new Articles of Incorporation will become effective by resolution at the shareholder meeting. A partial amendment to the Articles of Incorporation is proposed in response to the Tokyo Stock Exchange-listed Ichigo REIT's (8975) planned transition from a multi-asset class REIT to a specialized office REIT, as well as to reflect revisions to laws and regulations and changes in the structure of the REIT's asset management fee. Ichigo REIT has strategically refocused its portfolio on mid-size office assets. Consistent with this strategy, Ichigo REIT will transition to a specialized office REIT that focuses on offices, and the REIT's name will be changed to Ichigo Office REIT in Article 1. To make the transition to a specialized office REIT, Article 30 Paragraph 1 will be amended to state that in accordance with the investment policy of Ichigo REIT, it shall invest in real estate that are mainly used as offices and real estate-backed securities pertaining to such real estate, and omit residential facilities, retail and commercial facilities, and hotels. Provisions in Article 30 Paragraph 4 will be deleted to reflect the amendment of the Act on Special Measures Concerning Taxation (Ordinance of the Ministry of Finance No.15 of 1957, as amended). Article 31 Paragraph 2 will be amended in accordance to the amendment to Article 3 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Act on Investment Trusts and Investment Corporations (Order of the Prime Minister's Office No. 129 of 2000, as amended). In accordance to the amendments to the definition of specified assets in the Order referenced in (d) above, a relevant asset will be added to Article 31 Paragraph 4 Item (8). Article 37 Paragraph 2 will be amended to reflect the amendment of Act on Special Measures Concerning Taxation (Act No.26 of 1957, as amended) to enable Ichigo REIT to make dividend distributions in excess of earnings for the purpose of lowering the REIT's tax burden. Article 39 Paragraph 3 will be amended to clarify treatment of administrative operations related to the issuance of new shares. The Attachment, Management Fee Paid to the Asset Management Company, will be amended to reduce the current Management Fee II that can move around based upon changes in the depreciation amount of the REIT's assets, and to add a new sub-set of Management Fee II that is linked to changes in the REIT's total dividend.
