KUALA LUMPUR: CapitaMalls Malaysia Trust (CMMT) will be the largest "pure-play" shopping mall real estate investment trust (REIT) on the main market of Bursa Malaysia by market capitalisation upon its expected listing on July 16.

At the launching of its prospectus Monday, June 28, CMMT said its market capitalisation was expected to be about RM1.4 billion, adding that its portfolio has been valued at RM2.13 billion in the valuation conducted by its trustee, AmTrustee Bhd.

The Trust said its initial portfolio comprises three shopping malls namely Gurney Plaza in Penang, an interest in Sungei Wang Plaza in Kuala Lumpur and The Mines in Selangor. The portfolios have a net lettable area of about 1.88 million sq ft.

Under its initial public offering (IPO), CMMT is offering 786.522 million units to institutional investors in Malaysia and overseas and to the retail investors in Malaysia only.
