11. AUM Methodology
As of December 31, 2019, Phoenix has managed over US$11.8 billion¹ of gross real estate assets; comprised of approximately US$7.7 billion of current assets (including approximately US$6.6 billion of assets solely managed by Phoenix and approximately US$1.1 billion of assets co-managed by Phoenix and joint venture partners); as well as approximately US$4.1 billion of gross real estate assets sold or realized which are no longer under management by Phoenix. This is the estimated market value of Phoenix Group’s current assets and includes both equity (such as undrawn capital commitment, cash and cash equivalents, etc.) and debt (excluding short-term loan or subscription line in the amount of approximately US$259.6 million).
¹The figures are rounded to the nearest tenths of a billion.
Please note that Market Value is based on latest external independent valuation, internal valuation, or initial invested capital (i.e., acquisition price of target assets). For newly-acquired assets, Phoenix Group uses the valuation provided by banks that finance the said acquisition. Notwithstanding the foregoing statement, please note that Phoenix Group uses different valuation methodologies for different types of assets as follows: (i) Market Value of Land, Developing Project & Completed Project – For assets in the form of bare land (the “Land”), the value of such Land (the “Land Value”) is derived by applying either the “Direct Comparison Method” or the “Residual Valuation Method”. If the Land is partially developed and construction is in progress (the “Developing Project”), the value of such Developing Project is derived by the sum of the Land Value and the hard and soft construction costs incurred up to the date of the valuation. If development is completed on the Land (the “Completed Project”), the value of such Completed Project is based on sum of the projected gross sales price of all units in such Completed Development; (ii) Market Value of Assemblage Deals – For assets in the form of residential/non-residential units (“Target Units”) in a target building and the number of such Target Units acquired by Phoenix Group is insufficient to effect a compulsory sale under local laws, the Market Value is the sum of the resales price of all the Target Units in their current state. For asset in which Phoenix Group acquires a sufficient number of Target Units to force a compulsory sale, the Market Value is the total acquisition price of all the acquired Target Units divided by target acquisition price for all Target Units multiplied by external independent valuation of the target building; and (iii) Market Value of Structured Products – For assets in the form of mezzanine loans and equity investments, the Market Value is the discounted cashflows based on the actual drawn down amount. All non-U.S. denominated currency used in the above transactions shall be converted into U.S. Dollars based on the exchange rate on the date of the valuation of the Unrealized Investments or the hedged exchange rate where applicable.
