NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES
Agellan Commercial Real Estate Investment Trust (the “REIT”) (TSX: ACR.UN) announced today the amendment and reinstatement of its Unitholder Distribution Reinvestment Plan (the “DRIP”) effective for future distributions declared by the REIT. Eligible Unitholders that choose to participate in the DRIP will have their monthly cash distributions used to purchase trust units of the REIT.
Eligible Unitholders who were previously participating in the DRIP at the time of its suspension will automatically resume participation in the DRIP and no action is required.
Eligible Unitholders that had not previously opted in to the DRIP but now wish to do so may elect to participate by contacting their broker, investment dealer or financial institution holding their trust units. Unitholders who are not residents of Canada are not permitted to participate in the DRIP.
While the amended DRIP no longer provides participants with a 3% “bonus distribution” of trust units of the REIT, it still provides participants with the opportunity to accumulate additional trust units of the REIT without incurring any commissions, service charges or brokerage fees.
Complete details of the DRIP are available on the REIT’s website at www.agellanreit.com.
