TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 17, 2013) -


Canadian Real Estate Investment Trust ("CREIT") (TSX:REF.UN) announced today that it has agreed to issue, on an agency basis, $125 million aggregate principal amount of series A senior unsecured debentures. These debentures will bear interest at a rate of 3.676% per annum and will mature on July 24, 2018. The debentures are being offered on an agency basis by a syndicate of agents with RBC Capital Markets being the sole bookrunner and lead agent. The offering is expected to close on or about July 24, 2013. DBRS Limited has provided CREIT with a provisional rating of "BBB" with a "stable trend" relating to the debentures.

The net proceeds of the offering will be used for the repayment of floating rate debt.

The offering is being made pursuant to CREIT's base shelf prospectus dated June 18, 2013. The terms of the offering will be described in a prospectus supplement to be filed with Canadian securities regulators.

The debentures offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the debentures in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

CREIT is a real estate investment trust focused on accumulating and aggressively managing a portfolio of high-quality real estate assets and delivering the benefits of real estate ownership to Unitholders.
