Newly launched Land Fund SAHIF to acquire JSE Listed company
05 September 2019

Johannesburg, 02 September 2019: The South African Housing and Infrastructure Fund (SAHIF) has expressed a non-binding interest to acquire a Johannesburg Stock Exchange listed company, Freedom Property Fund, trading as FDP on the JSE main board as released on SENS (Stock Exchange News Service).

SAHIF is looking to acquire all of the issued shares of Freedom by way of a scheme of arrangement in terms of section 114 of the Companies Act 2008 ("the Potential Transaction"), subject to a due diligence investigation.

The Expression of Interest is subject to an exclusivity period to SAHIF of a maximum of 120 days from 22 August 2019.

Formed in 2012 and listed on the JSE main board on 12 June 2014, Freedom Property Fund Limited is a capital growth fund with mainly a geographically diverse land portfolio as well as income producing property which hold a combined value of just over R1.5 billion as reported in the last released financial statements for the company.

Commenting on the acquisition, SAHIF CFO, Kameel Keshav, says this is a strategic move for the newly launched land fund to make its mark in the real estate industry. "This proposed acquisition of Freedom Property Fund will add significant value to our business by accessing the strong pipeline of strategically located land opportunities which all have been identified as future residential affordable housing developments matching our business model. As SAHIF, we are here to create something that is extraordinary in the (real estate) sector; something unusual without losing our focus of contributing to the shortfall of serviced stands in South Africa," says Keshav.

SAHIF was officially launched on the 2nd of July 2019 with the aim to fast track the delivery of serviced stands for poor and middle-class South Africans. The fund is a unique initiative that focuses on increasing and accelerating delivery of affordable housing units (serviced stands) through acquisition of vacant and unused land near cities, town centres, shops, parks, schools, public transport, public health care and places of work (all within the urban edge). Its objective is to assist government and private sector to address the shortfall of promised homes to South Africans that have not yet been built, which exceeds 1.7m homes.

"This is just the first of many bold moves planned for SAHIF over the coming years. We continue to be a company that will enter into the right opportunities to enhance the value of our business. This acquisition will bolster our consolidated land pipeline geographically allowing us to delivered on serviced stands in new areas of the country and ultimately addressing the housing crisis in South Africa," says Rali Mampeule, CEO of SAHIF.

SAHIF has a target of 108,160 service stands units to be delivered over the next 3 years, which will impact over 430 000 lives with a fund size of R15.3 Billion. The roll-out of this fund has previously created 4,731 jobs and will provide an additional 6,953 jobs in the future. This will essentially create a total of 11,684 jobs by the end of the 3 year term.

SAHIF on the passing of Construction industry heavyweight Dr Thandi Ndlovu
25 August 2019

The South African Housing and Infrastructure Fund (SAHIF) has learnt with sadness the passing of Construction industry heavyweight, Dr Thandi Ndlovu.

Ndlovu passed away in hospital on Saturday following a horrific car accident. According to reports, she was on her way to a funeral in Rustenburg, North West.

SAHIF CEO, Rali Mampeule, says this is a sad day for the Built Environment industry in general and the Construction industry in particular. "The construction industry has lost a heroine, a dedicated businesswoman and a selfless leader," says Mampeule who knew Dr Thandi very well and interacted a lot with her in recent weeks.

"Dr Thandi paved a way for a lot of women in the industry and she was on a mission to unlock more opportunities for others. She was one of the shining stars in the construction industry, thanks to her 20 years experience in the sector."

Ndlovu, a Medical Doctor by profession, launched Motheo Construction in 1999; a company that was well respected within the sector. The company acquired a grade 9 certificate level from the Construction Industry Development Board.

Growing within the industry, she served as president of the Black Business Council for the Built Environment. Ndlovu also played a pivotal role in the growth of the African Women Chartered Accountants.

"We'd like to send our heartfelt condolences to the Ndlovu family and friends. The news of Dr Thandi's passing came as a shock, especially this month (women's month) which we've dedicated to women in construction. May her soul rest in peace," adds Mampeule.

Dr Thandi Ndlovu is on the front cover of the August issue of Forbes Magazine Africa. She will be dearly missed and her contribution to the Construction industry will echo for generations to come.
