For the purpose of acquiring 2 malls as per their May 2016 news. Preferential offering is given to existing unit holders.
One thing about REITs is that their gearing is limited by regulations. So when they acquire new malls they have to issue bonds to borrow money and/or issue new units.
On the other hand, the additional malls will increase Croesus REIT’s income.
Hope the above answers your question.
