"Through a combination of our proactive leasing and renewal programs, and our local knowledge and experience in the markets where we operate, we increased occupancy to 93.6% at the end of 2015, up 1.1% over the third quarter. The consistent performance of our portfolio and a continuing improvement in our payout ratio are strong indicators of the sustainability of our distributions. We are maintaining our distribution at $0.05625 per unit for the first quarter as we believe this provides a healthy balance between returning income to unitholders and maintaining a strong balance sheet."
