Major Cineplex Lifestyle Leasehold Property Fund (MJLF)

A major milestone that took place also in June 2007 was the completion of the REIT. Two of the standalone cineplexes (Major Ratchayotin & Major Rangsit) were initially injected into the MJLF, raising Baht 2.3 billion in cash. With the proceed, the company reinvests 33.0% back into the fund, while the remaining amount was reinvested into a brand new standalone cineplex in Ngamwongwan-Kaerai area and a new lifestyle mall, Major Avenue @ Ratchayotin, a 50:50 joint venture between MAJOR & Siam Future.

This development marks an important step for the group as MJLF becomes a vital vehicle for sustainable future growth. The company can now expand with the original standalone cineplex model without fresh capital calls. The standalone cineplexes with much larger number of cinema screens & bowling lanes are expected to drive higher rate of growth for the income statements than the balance sheets, enabling the company to adopt the “asset-light” strategy with hope to generate higher rate of returns going forward.
