1. The fund is modelled to return a 10.5% internal rate of return net of all fees and costs. CBF6 aims to pay 100% of modelled return as a monthly distribution, subject to the assumptions and risks set out in the IM. Returns and distributions are all referred to on a pre-tax basis and are taxable in the hands of the investor. Investors should seek their own professional advice as to the financial, taxation and other implications of investing in the Fund.
2. Loan term is expected to be 15 months.
3. Further loan advances are allowable to the Borrower under the loan facility, however these do not form part of CBFM6 and will be funded by separate Centuria Bass Facilities.
4. The actual Net IRR will depend on the actual level of market interest rates over the term. If interest rates rise more rapidly or by more than currently expected by markets, the returns for the Fund may be higher. Similarly, if interest rates rise more slowly or by less than is currently expected by markets, Fund returns may be lower.
