Maplewood International REIT Provides Transaction Update

MISSISSAUGA, ON--(Marketwired - June 14, 2016) -

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

Maplewood International Real Estate Investment Trust (the "REIT") (TSX VENTURE: MWI.UN) announced today that, further to the press release dated April 5, 2016 describing the conditional purchase offer executed between the REIT and a European private real estate investment fund at arm's length to the REIT (the "Potential Purchaser") on the REIT's investment property in the Netherlands (the "Property"), the REIT has withdrawn from further negotiations with the Potential Purchaser on the binding purchase and sale agreement, as the final terms and conditions proposed by the Potential Purchaser were unacceptable to the REIT with regards to maximizing value and liquidity on the disposition of the Property.

Further to the press release dated September 8, 2015 describing the initiation of the REIT's value maximization process (the "Process"), the REIT continues to advance on the Process and will advise of further developments with respect to the Process once a binding purchase and sale agreement has been executed in connection with the disposition of the Property, or the REIT otherwise determines that disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
