Allied Announces Sale of Non-Core Assets in Eastern Canada

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 27, 2017) - Allied Properties REIT (TSX:AP.UN) today announced that it has sold its portfolio of six properties in Québec City for aggregate proceeds of $24 million. The portfolio was comprised of 224,174 square feet of GLA. As at September 30, 2017, it was 60.8% leased and represented a negligible component of Allied's net rental income.

"This transaction represents substantial completion of the sale of our non-core assets," said Michael Emory, President & CEO. "Our goal was to exit the Victoria, Winnipeg and Québec City markets, as they were not large enough to propel meaningful growth in our business as it now exists. In addition to enabling us to redeploy capital profitably, exiting these markets has assisted us in streamlining our operations across the country."

JLL represented Allied in connection with the sale of its Québec City portfolio.
