Given the current outlook for non-prime office space, Halmont closed the sale of a third heritage property in May 2022. A fourth property is currently subject to a conditional sale agreement scheduled to close early in 2023. The completion of these property sales will generate approximately $80 million of capital, which is expected to be deployed initially to expand its forest property investments, and as opportunities arise re-invested in the commercial property sector.
The fully diluted book value, assuming the conversion of the capital notes and preferred shares, increased to 72¢ per common share compared to 62¢ in September 2021.
Halmont revalues its principal assets each year in accordance with IFRS accounting principles, considering available market information and the relevant terms of its joint-venture and partnership agreements. As a result, the common share book value approximates their realizable values.
Halmont Properties Corporation invests directly in real assets including commercial, forest, and residential properties.
