AIP Realty Trust (the “Trust” or “AIP”) (TSXV: AIP.U) today announced that its Board of Trustees (the “Board”) has suspended the cash distribution for the third quarter ending September 30, 2023 in the amount of $0.02 per unit. All dollar amounts are stated in U.S. dollars.

After careful consideration of the Trust’s financial resources, and while the presently owned Eagle Court facility in Lewisville, TX remains fully leased and occupied and is performing in accordance with pro forma expectations, the Board made the decision to sustain the revision to its distribution policy in order to preserve working capital and maintain financial flexibility. The Board believes the decision supports the Trust’s priority of preserving capital needed as it seeks the means to accomplish two primary objectives. The first objective is to complete the acquisitions of the newly built and leased properties identified in purchase agreements the Trust has entered into with its development partner, AllTrades Industrial Properties, Inc. (“AllTrades”). The second objective is to provide AllTrades with mezzanine financing for the continued development of its growing pipeline of secured sites. The Board believes delivering on both objectives is the most effective means to create long-term value for unitholders.

The Board plans to reevaluate future distributions on a quarterly basis.
