Timbercreek U.S. Multi-Residential Opportunity Fund #1 Announces Fourth Quarter Distribution as well as an Update on the Special Distribution

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - December 29, 2016) - Timbercreek U.S. Multi-Residential Opportunity Fund #1 (the "Fund") has declared a distribution (the "Distribution") of $0.143 per class A unit of the Fund ("Class A Units"), $0.155 per class B unit of the Fund ("Class B Units") and $0.155 per class C unit of the Fund ("Class C Units") to be paid on January 13, 2017 to holders of class A units, class B units and class C units of record on December 30, 2016. It is estimated that this entire distribution amount is effectively a return of capital.

Special Distribution Update
The Fund intends to distribute available net proceeds from the sale of the Lake Ellenor Disposition in the form of a special distribution to be paid on the revised payment date of January 9, 2017 to holders of class A units, class B units and class C units of record on November 30, 2016 (the "Special Distribution").

The Special Distribution equates to $1.475 for each class A unit, class B unit and class C unit of the Fund where it is estimated that approximately $1.25 per unit is the effective return of capital to unitholders. It is also estimated that the balance of $0.225 is the effective U.S. capital gain to unitholders.

The special distribution is net of estimated U.S taxes payable and other post-closing holdbacks of approximately 27% in aggregate. U.S. taxes paid will be allocated to unitholders as a foreign tax credit (foreign taxes paid) which may be available to reduce their total Canadian taxes payable. This foreign tax credit (foreign taxes paid) along with actual return of capital information will be provided to investors on their 2017 tax slip prior to March 31, 2018. A unitholder's final tax liability will be dependent on each unitholder's personal tax situation. Investors should seek their own advice on the tax consequences that apply to them in their circumstances

The targeted 15% IRR is inclusive of a 4-5% pre-tax yield paid quarterly.
