TORONTO, Oct. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Partners Real Estate Investment Trust (“Partners REIT” or the “REIT”) (TSX:PAR.UN) previously announced a special distribution of $0.87 per outstanding unit to unitholders of record on November 2, 2018 to be paid on November 9, 2018 (the “Payment Date”).
The Toronto Stock Exchange has elected to require that the units of the REIT trade on a “Due Bill” basis from and including November 1, 2018 until the close of trading on the Payment Date (the “Due Bill Period”). This means that buyers of units during the Due Bill Period will receive the special distribution payment, provided they continue to be holders of the applicable unit on the Payment Date.
The units will commence trading on an ex-distribution basis (i.e., without an attached “Due Bill” entitlement to the special distribution) commencing the opening of trading on November 13, 2018 (i.e., after taking into account the bank holiday on November 12, 2018, the next business day for trading purposes after the Payment Date). The Due Bill redemption date will be November 14, 2018.
As a result of the units trading on a Due Bill basis during the Due Bill Period, those entitled to be paid the special distribution owing on the Due Bills should expect to receive that payment by the Due Bill redemption date of November 14, 2018. Unitholders prior to the Due Bill Period who do not purchase or sell units during the Due Bill Period will not have their applicable special distribution payment impacted by the Due Bill process.
