  18. Indicators ISSUE 002 April 2018 Spotlight on real estate Singapore

    is paving the way for future- ready real estate Asset diversity boom: Alternative property sectors heating up Turn hindsight into foresight Sam Riley, Ansarada CEO Our second edition of Indicators is here. We’ve rounded it out to bring you more exclusive insights from our extensive data, more news stories, and more trends to watch. In this edition, we take a closer look at Singapore’s rising interest in Australian real estate, the alternative asset classes that are driving activity, and the growing importance of transaction readiness in the market. We’ll also reveal emerging trends in your sector based on new deal commencement, so you can get the advantage of foresight and confident decision-making. Just like our inaugural issue, we’ll be using indicators from more than 20,000 deals, including those that are active and ongoing. While this doesn’t necessarily mean that a deal will close successfully, it allows us to show you the leading trends before the rest of the market is aware of them. This information is valuable for several reasons; firstly, because it typically gives dealmakers a head start of 6-9 months when it comes to recognising developments and opportunities (the average deal process taking the better part of a year to complete). It also enables them to make better, more informed decisions – without needing to rely on guesswork or instinct. Getting accurate insights based on real data is an important first step toward knowing exactly where you stand and having the foresight to see ahead; acting early and proactively is a huge advantage in today’s fast-paced business world. Readiness is an increasingly important metric for deal success. We’d even go so far as to say it is the most important. To pull off an assertive deal strategy, you must have a clear vision and readiness to act. The winning dealmakers know where they stand and what’s coming next, so they can adapt quickly to the fluctuating landscape. This report is for advisors and business leaders who want to unearth those market insights, so they are across the trends and ready to seize the opportunities first. That’s what really makes the Indicators information so powerful. We hope you enjoy it. Regular indicators Regular leading indicators of deal activity from our data rooms, both closed and active/ongoing. We look at deals by type and industry to compare year-on-year activity. Deals commencing by type Recent drive of M&A deals appears to have slowed in the early part of 2018, with 20% fewer deals starting in the March quarter compared to the final quarter of last year. The energy and financial services sectors both saw increases of 50% and 200% respectively. Consumer discretionary DEALS COMMENCING BY INDUSTRY 30% Deals were down 30% compared with last quarter. Healthcare DEALS COMMENCING BY INDUSTRY 64% After an increase in the final quarter of last year, healthcare activity dropped 64% in the first quarter this year. Technology DEALS COMMENCING BY INDUSTRY 68% Whereas technology deals were up 40% over the previous year in December, this quarter saw activity drop by 68%. Energy DEALS COMMENCING BY INDUSTRY 50% Last quarter, energy data rooms dropped 20%, probably fuelled by a continuation of the slump in the energy sector. However this quarter saw data rooms up 50%. Financial services 200% After a slow end to 2017, M&A deals in the financial services sector returned to DEALS COMMENCING BY INDUSTRY typical levels in the first quarter of 2018.
  19. Indicators ISSUE 002 April 2018 Spotlight on real estate Singapore

    is paving the way for future- ready real estate Asset diversity boom: Alternative property sectors heating up Future ready, asset diverse Alternative Australian property sectors are attracting forward- thinking Singapore investors Singapore is investing in Aussie real estate at an exponential rate Based on activity seen in deals recently completed for the quarter, our indicators show the island nation’s interest in the Australian real estate sector was significant in the first quarter of 2018, representing 50% of total offshore interest. This is a huge leap compared to Singapore’s interest throughout 2017, which – at 24% – was less than half that amount. So why is Singapore becoming so active in Australia’s real estate market? What’s causing this spike in activity? The signs point to the primary cause being a rising interest in what many see as ‘alternative sectors’ within the industry, including data centres and student accommodation – both of which there are ample opportunities for in Australia. While these sectors have previously been viewed by investors as too volatile or challenging, the competitive market and evolving demographics are driving demand, and Asian countries are seeing the potential. Singapore is looking ahead. Their movement into these niche real estate sectors aligns with their interest in transforming their own property market, cementing their position as a globally recognised technology hub and leading the way forward in the digital economy. Singapore is transforming its real estate industry- and several others One of the 20 smallest countries in the world and one of only three remaining city states, Singapore is a highly developed and wealthy country. Globally, the nation is a powerful commercial hub, and last year ranked third in the world for ‘most competitive financial centre’ after London and New York. (1) Singapore is also widely considered to be one of the most tech-savvy countries in the world. At home, Singapore’s real estate market is seeing the tail end of a two-year slump, and the outlook is positive. The government is actively encouraging the integration of new technologies into real estate, and capital is flowing into the sector. In March, they launched the Real Estate Industry Transformation Map, to ‘provide a roadmap for the transformation of the real estate industry to be future-ready’, with the ultimate goal of driving innovation and productivity in the climate of fast-paced change. This includes smart building solutions, including ‘real-time monitoring, predictive maintenance, and automation that improves a building’s operational efficiency’.

    when selling Concentrate on high value activities Less time finding and verifying documents Asset management the Ready way 3 Reese is a real estate asset manager in New York and works with investment properties Reese is an asset manager who works at a global commercial office real estate company. It’s not uncommon for him to receive an unsolicited, off-market bid for one of the properties in his portfolio. This means Reese collating information on that property quickly so as not to miss out on a potentially profitable opportunity. Today he’s compiling material information for a sale of a property in Manhattan. Reese needs to react quickly to an unsolicited bid. This means him finding information about financials, general amenitives, health and safety, leases, and tenancy schedules. Much of what he’s looking for is scattered across multiple external services and internal systems, so often the easiest way to find something is to ask a property manager to send it to him. Reese finds this process frustrating, especially if there are multiple people involved, and the wait for important information can often be stressful. Reese wants to avoid this rush for information altogether and make the process of unsolicited bids much smoother. Accuracy matters and Reese spends a significant amount of time verifying the information he’ll provide to potential buyers or their agents is complete and up-to-date. With time at a premium, sometimes there’s no way to verify information other than by checking documents individually. It’s often only then that Reese notices issues which could risk jeopardising a sale or prevent it achieving the best value. Sometimes, when a property has been in his company’s portfolio for a few years, information is missing altogether. While this won’t necessarily mean that a sale will fall through, it may delay a deal, cost more in professional fees, and ultimately reduce the value from a sale. This could have a detrimental impact on Reese’s reputation. “As an asset manager, I often need to react to unsolicited, off-market bids quickly. For that I need to always know how ready a property is for sale and have easier access to accurate information about it so that I can inform potential purchases.” Since we launched our virtual data room software in 2005, we’ve been on a mission to improve the ways that business gets done. Our products span a company’s entire lifecycle, optimising processes from preparation to execution and close and we’re now the world leader in material information management. 4 What’s Reese’s story? Reese was approached by a potential buyer for one of his company’s properties and he began compiling material information about the property. The property manager in charge emailed Reese copies of some of the documents he asked for, and gave him access to a Google Drive folder used to store them. There were several versions of financials and there was no way for Reese to tell which was the most recent. It was the same story with other files. Worse still, he couldn’t find some information at all. Organising and verifying Reese and his team spent time organising and verifying all the information. He sent dozens of emails, had phone calls and meetings with his property manager to ensure information for the buyer was accurate and complete. Reese was asked to share information with the buyer’s law firm. The only way to share them was by giving the lawyers access to another Google Drive folder. That didn’t look professional. The law firm analysed the information provided and discovered a problem with a tenant. Months to resolve Reese and his team rushed to resolve the issue, but this took several weeks of re-negotiation with a tenant. The issue was resolved, but not without delaying the deal and costing his company unexpected legal fees. Finally the deal goes through, but not without frustration that Reese feels could easily have been avoided.

    Information Platform, you never need to be concerned about your readiness to make targeted acquisitions. You’ll always be ready to grow your business. Contact our sales team to find out more about how Ansarada can help you get ready for your next acquisition. Assess your target—You’ve got your eye on a target company to acquire. You’ll need to assess the current state of their business, and that means taking a good look at their material information. Whether you’ll be taking steps to integrate all their processes and clients, or running autonomously, you’ll need to know exactly where they stand and how they operate. To do this, you’ll use scorecards which cover all areas of risk and material information, i.e. Finance, Legal. Instead of your typical excel spreadsheet of questions sent to target companies, these bespoke custom-built scorecards can be reused for each company and are benchmarked based on the intelligence of 20,000 deals. Start by inviting them to fill in basic information about their company, as well as any custom questions or requirements you want to add. Your scorecards may entail multiple stages. An initial, simple scorecard can be used for targets at scale, whereas a more complicated scorecard can be set up for stage two when the full due diligence commences. Contained within each are a series of questions or topics. Each topic contains requirements that define what material evidence is important, removing the need for you to explain how and why certain documentation needs to be provided. Their score will tell you where they stand in less than 15 minutes, and you’ll quickly be able to highlight both the opportunities and gaps in their material information, and ultimately their business—without chasing them for answers or documentation. Time to prepare Since we launched our virtual data room software in 2005, we’ve been on a mission to improve the ways that business gets done. Our products span a company’s entire lifecycle, optimising processes from preparation to execution and close and we’re now the world leader in material information management. A series of questions about your material information. For each topic, we’ll tell you what you need to get the best score. Your first score, and a projection for after you’ve filled gaps in your material information.

The Platform enables you to assign priority to specific topics, guiding your targets to focus on what matters. To achieve their potential high score, your targets need to provide all the critical documents listed and have them verified; they immediately see how they can go from good to great, which gamifies the process. If your target company hasn’t been through the deal process before, they may struggle to understand what certain documents or requirements are. The topic profiles and content guides within the Platform’s content library clearly explain each of these and why they are important, enabling your clients to be self- sufficient and eliminating the need for any hand holding. They’ll upload their documentation and evidence into each of the topic areas, where it’ll be stored securely. They can also delegate responsibility across teams to get ready faster. They can assign a whole area, like ‘Finance’, or an individual topic, like ‘Employment contracts’ to the appropriate person. For example, John in Finance gets a notification to update all of the Finance topics and is accountable for completing this section. He goes on to upload all the documentation, with progress clearly visible as the score for this topic increases.

  60. Ready Set Create A manual for using our distinctive brand

    assets 0.9 December 2017 Our typography is always Ansarada’s transforming, from revolutionising M&A to the Material Information Platform. The typefaces we choose communicate this transformation. Trustworthy Often Conversational Sometimes even Spirited To illustrate how our business is evolving from an easy-to-use product to a platform people form relationships with—in some cases they literally talk to— our typefaces should be conversational and trustworthy. We’re transforming how the world sees our products by introducing two new typefaces. They’re Activ Grotesk and Lexia. What’s the di!erence between a font and a typeface? A typeface is what you see in the design of alphabets, numerals, and symbols whereas a font is what you use. Today, a font is a digital !le, whereas in the past it was a set of metal blocks that embodied a particular size and weight of type. 2 Ready, Set, Create We set feature numerals at display sizes in Lexia Thin. Stand!rst paragraphs help us to convey key messages clearly. abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRST UVWXYZ0123456789 Light For longer passages of written copy in our marketing and product content and for blockquote citations. abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTU VWXYZ0123456789 Bold Use Bold sparingly for adding emphasis to text elements in product and marketing content where required. abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRST UVWXYZ0123456789 Thin For feature numerals at display sizes, and display size headlines on signature moments. We use three weights of Lexia; Thin, Light and Bold A robust business plan provides focus to a team, a framework for prioritising projects. Lede paragraphs introduce our topics or summarise the important points we’re making. Tip: Use drop-caps to focus someone’s eye on where they should start reading. Match caps to the colour of nearby illustrations. A robust business plan provides focus to a team, a framework for prioritising your projects. % A robust business plan provides focus to a team, a framework for prioritising projects and reduces the risks of being impacted by the forseeable actions of other market players. robust business plan provides focus to a team, a framework for prioritising A projects and reduces the risks of being impacted by the forseeable actions of other market players. 8 Ready, Set, Create
  61. The Ansarada logo that we’ve all come to know suited

    a young company, growing globally and connecting people via deal rooms. It did exactly what it needed to, but the logo had its challenges. It didn’t contain a ‘peelable’ element that could be separated from our name, it was di!cult to scale to the small sizes we now need in the world of mobile apps, and the triangular shape of the 48 dots often created uncomfortable white space. These were three of the challenges we faced while designing our new logo. Our creative teams worked with San Francisco based Godfrey Dadich Partners to design our new brand and marketing strategy that includes a new logo that suits a mature company that’s con"dent and self-assured. This logo includes a distinctive peelable mark that can be separated from our name for use on app icons and merchandising. The logo-mark contains four shapes that come together to form a characterful letter ‘a.’ 4 Introducing our new logo Ready is reminiscent of the shape of the dots in our previous logo. Go suggests the !uid nature of our customers’ businesses. The circle echoes dots from our previous logo and represents the 360 degree view our products give customers. Ready, set, go, Ansarada We set our wordmark using Rockwell, a slab-serif typeface that was designed way back in 1934. Rockwell is a geometric slab-serif that sits solidly on its baseline. Its strokes appear similar in width, perfectly complementing Aktiv Grotesk, our primary typeface. 5 Rockwell In our original logo, the dots formed the top of a globe. Godfrey Dadich cleverly incorporated a reminder of this shape into our logo-mark. Just a few of Godfrey Dadich’s logo-mark explorations. 8 You‘ll need to visit our o!ces around the world to pick up one of these special badges and stickers. Be at one of the Ansarada o!ces on special occasions such as Doughnut Day, St. Patrick’s Day, New Year’s Eve or Halloween to collect one of these special badges and stickers. These playful treatments are for internal use only. Ask our design team before you use them. ANSARADA THE ONE PLACE TO CONFIDENTIAL: DO NOT DISTRIBUTE OR Our new logo-mark allows us to be playful and provocative with presentations we create for internal audiences only. For example, on celebrations and special occasions we may change its colours to match photographs. Our logo is !exible Brand green logo-mark and near-black wordmark on coloured background.
