TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 09, 2016) - Timbercreek U.S. Multi-Residential Opportunity Fund #1 (the "Fund") announced today details of a special distribution to unitholders resulting from the previously announced disposition of the Granite Park property located in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The special distribution equates to $1.939 per class A unit of the Fund ("Class A Units"), $1.939 per class B unit of the Fund ("Class B Units") and $1.939 per Class C unit of the Fund ("Class C Units) to be paid on August 22, 2016 (rather than August 15, 2016 as previously disclosed) to holders of Class A Units, Class B Units and Class C Units of record on August 8, 2016. It is estimated that approximately $0.90 per unit is the effective return of capital to unitholders.
The special distribution is net of estimated U.S taxes payable and other post-closing holdbacks of approximately 20% in aggregate. U.S. taxes paid will be allocated to unitholders as a foreign tax credit which may be available to reduce their total Canadian taxes payable. This foreign tax credit along with actual effective return of capital information will be provided to investors on their 2016 tax slip prior to March 31, 2017. 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.

We are also pleased to announce that the sale of two other assets in the portfolio -- Eagle Landing and Watercrest, both of which are located in Cary, North Carolina -- are now scheduled to close on August 12, 2016. The Fund intends to distribute available net proceeds from the sale of Eagle Landing and Watercrest to unitholders on August 22, 2016 along with the net proceeds from the sale of Granite Park. Further details of the distribution will be provided in a news release prior to the time of the distribution.
