The movement

Kicking off the day, Ultima United (ASX: UUL) reported net cash inflow for the quarter from its Cannington project of $24,096 and expenditure of $21,749 on its Bentley project.

The 3 Oak Street property in Cannington still has its master lease agreement in force and Ultima United said it provides the company with above-market rental yield. UUL said it is still considering the individual sale of apartments. The company is also currently negotiating a renewal or extension to the master lease and will provide updates on any progress in due course.

Ultimate United still owns the 19-21 Tate Street property in Bentley, and said in its latest update that “Upon further deliberations, the company terminated the sales agreement and took the Bentley Project off the market.

Finally, regarding UUL’s Hokkaido development, the company said settlement on plots eight and nine of the project has been postponed to 30 September 2022. UUL said it was to allow global supply and labour shortages to normalise.

Openn Negotiation (ASX: OPN) has announced its Australia New Zealand operations recorded 62% growth in uploads, year on year.

“As our entry into North American markets accelerates, I’m also pleased to advise YOY growth in uploads to the platform of 62% compared to FY21 from our AU/ NZ operations. These results demonstrate the growing scale and global shift toward an appetite for optimising the real estate sales process, underpinned by greater transparency which Openn is perfectly positioned to leverage,” said Peter Gibbons, Managing Director of Openn.

“While we’ve seen some easing of activity from the peak in residential real estate relative to the same time last year, the Company continues to progress well towards its 5% market share aspirations in Australia by FY24.

“This quarter also resulted in the completion of an oversubscribed $3 million dollar placement lead by Euroz Hartley, with a further $2 million on offer to existing shareholders via a Share Purchase Plan (SPP), closing Friday 29 July 2022. Funds raised from these activities will be used to fund expansion into North America where demand for Openn’s products has developed faster than anticipated.”

Cash receipts from tenants for the quarter were A$4.01 million with monthly rental collections averaging 98%.
