Specifically, on Aug 31, LMIRT’s manager announced announced the proposed acquisition of Lippo Mall Puri for the equivalent of $330 million. The total cost to LMIRT’s unitholders will be $391 million comprising the Purchase Consideration of Rp.3,500.0 billion (approximately $330.2 million); Value Added Tax (Pajak Pertambahan Nilai) of Rp.350.0 billion (approximately $33.0 million); the Land and Building Acquisition Tax (Bea Perolehan Hak Atas Tanah dan Bangunan) of Rp.175.0 billion (approximately $16.5 million); and the estimated professional and other fees and expenses of approximately $11.3 million to be incurred by LMIR Trust in connection with the Acquisition.

The acquisition is likely to be funded by a combination of debt and equity.
