InterRent Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

17:30 EDT Monday, July 29, 2013

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 29, 2013) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

InterRent Real Estate Investment Trust (TSX:IIP.UN) ("InterRent" or "REIT") announced today that is has received approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") for a Normal Course Issuer Bid (the "Bid") commencing on August 1, 2013 up to and including July 31, 2014.

Under the terms of the Bid, InterRent may purchase up to 4,596,134 trust units ("Units") (representing approximately 10% of the REIT's public float of 45,961,336 Units). As at July 19, 2013, InterRent has 57,141,017 Units issued and outstanding.

For the past six months, the average daily trading volume of InterRent Units was 116,845. A maximum of 29,211 Units (being 25% of the average daily trading volume) may be purchased by InterRent on any one day under the Bid, except where purchases are made in accordance with "block purchases" exemptions under applicable TSX policies. Purchases pursuant to the Bid will be made through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange. InterRent will pay the market price at the time of acquisition for any Unit purchased through the facilities of the TSX and all Units acquired by the REIT under this Bid will be cancelled.

InterRent is pursuing the normal course issuer bid because it believes that, from time to time, the market price of its Units may not fully reflect the underlying value of its business and its future business prospects. The REIT believes that, in such circumstances, the purchase and cancellation of such Units represent an attractive investment for InterRent and its unitholders.
