InterRent REIT Announces Postponement of Unitholder Meeting

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 18, 2009) -


InterRent Real Estate Investment Trust (TSX:IIP.UN)(TSX:IIP.DB) ("InterRent") announced today that its Board of Trustees ("Trustees") has determined to postpone its annual and special meeting of unitholders, originally scheduled to be held at 10:00 a.m. on June 26, 2009, until further notice.

On March 11, 2009, InterRent announced the formation of a special committee ("Special Committee") of independent Trustees with a mandate to examine alternatives in order to maximize unitholder value. The process has resulted in the receipt of a number of proposals relating to strategic transactions involving InterRent which the Special Committee is currently evaluating. Given the current advanced stage of the process, the Trustees have determined that it would be in the best interests of the unitholders to postpone the annual and special meeting until such time as the process has been completed and unitholders are advised of the results thereof.

InterRent expects to update unitholders as to the results of the process as soon as practicable but there is no assurance that the process will result in any transaction being undertaken.

In accordance with the terms of InterRent's declaration of trust, the annual meeting of unitholders is required to be held on or prior to September 30, 2009 and unitholders will be provided with all requisite notice thereof.
