Allens has advised ASX-listed National Storage REIT (NSR) on its fully underwritten A$175 million equity raising.

The raising comprises an A$50 million institutional placement and an A$125 million pro-rata accelerated non-renounceable entitlement offer.

Lead Partner Chelsey Drake said: 'We are pleased to have worked with NSR on this raising, the proceeds of which will be used to strengthen NSR's balance sheet, reduce gearing levels and provide longer-term funding flexibility to continue its consolidation strategy and pursue further growth through identified initiatives'.

The capital raising was announced on 22 August 2018, with successful completion of the institutional placement and institutional component of the entitlement offer announced on 24 August 2018.
