Lockup period
Sabana Reit-Period of 180 days from listing date. Thereafter, 50% will be locked up for the following 360 days from the end of the 1st lock up period.
MIT - Period of 180 days from listing date.

Gearing/Leverage
Sabana Reit - 26.5%
MIT-38.5%

Performance fee Paid to manager
Sabana Reit - 0.5% per annum on Net Property Income if DPU grows at least 10%
MIT-3.6% per annum on Net Property Income

Sabana Reit's Alignment with Unitholders
The Manager has elected to receive 80.0% of the base fee in the form of Units for the Forecast Year 2011 and the Projection Year 2012 and (if payable) 80.0% of the performance fee in the form of Units for the Projection Year 2012, except that where the issue price (which is equal to the Market Price (as defined herein) of each Unit) is at a discount of at least 20.0% to the NAV per Unit, the Manager shall receive the base fee for the Forecast Year 2011 and the Projection Year 2012 and (if payable) the performance fee for the Projection Year 2012 wholly in the form of cash.

Honestly, comparing MIT and Sabana, it seems that Sabana is more aligned with their Unitholders. I like that they will choose to receive their base and performance fees in cash instead of Units if the Units are undervalued ( underlined above).

I also like that Sabana set an extremely high performance target of being paid a performance fee if they grow the DPU at least 10% from the year before, unlike MIT's target which is so, well, duh! MIT will still get paid performance fee as long as they have some income. I think my grandma can do that!

Gearing of Sabana looks good too and their dividend yield of 8.22% is pretty attractive........i must say..BUT...here's the catch before you go blindly into such an investment...Read below
