Ampol divests freehold convenience retail sites

The Ampol share price is shedding in value following the company’s decision to offload some of its assets.

In a statement to the ASX, Ampol announced the sale of 20 petrol stations to an unlisted property trust for $50.5 million. The transfer will see Ampol own a 51% interest, while Charter Hall will take up the remaining 49% stake.

Once the transaction is complete, Ampol plans to begin leasing the sites under long-term triple-net lease arrangements.

The deal is set to deliver Ampol about $48 million in net proceeds, based on a portfolio weighted-average capitalisation of 5%.

It intends to use the funds acquired from the sales and recently announced notes issue to help fund the purchase of New Zealand biofuel company Z Energy Ltd (ASX: ZEL). Ampol will allocate any monies left over to general corporate purposes.

The property transaction is expected to be finalised sometime in the first quarter of 2022, pending satisfied conditions.
