Allied Properties Real Estate Investment Trust Announces $100 Million Public Equity Offering

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 14, 2012) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO US NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION TO THE UNITED STATES

Allied Properties REIT (TSX:AP.UN) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with a syndicate of underwriters led by Scotiabank to issue to the public, on a bought-deal basis, 3,250,000 units from treasury at a price of $30.80 per unit for gross proceeds of approximately $100 million. Allied has also granted the underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional 487,500 units on the same terms and conditions, exercisable at any time, in whole or in part, for a period of 30 days following the closing of the offering. The issue will be offered in all provinces of Canada. The units being offered have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 and state securities laws. Closing of the offering is expected to occur on or about December 4, 2012, and is subject to regulatory approvals. Allied intends to use the net proceeds of the offering to fund income-enhancing capital projects now underway, to fund anticipated future acquisitions, to retire mortgage indebtedness as it comes due and for general trust purposes.

"This offering will fund our anticipated capital requirements over the remainder of this year and well into next," said Michael Emory, President & CEO. "In addition, it will allow us to improve upon our very good debt, interest-coverage and liquidity ratios, something that Management and the Board consider to be a cornerstone of the overall financial management of Allied's business."
