Johannesburg – Investec Property Fund [JSE:IPF] said on Thursday it would issue 113.220 million of its new shares at R13.82 per share to raise R1.56bn‚ aimed to fund a number properties it has acquired‚ together valued at R1.9bn.

Shareholders holding directly and indirectly 70.90% of the company’s shares in issue have provided irrevocable commitments to take up their rights in the rights offer‚ Investec said in a statement.
