Cominar Real Estate Investment Trust (CUF.UN-T) announced after markets closed on Tuesday a plan to "concentrate on its core markets" in Quebec and Ottawa and to reduce its debt.

The REIT said it plans to do both by; selling its properties outside its core markets (with an estimated fair value of more than $1.2-billion), using part of the sale proceeds to reduce its debt and to buy back units for cancellation, and to make future acquisitions in core markets.

"This plan will enable Cominar to capitalize on its leading positon in these core markets, and support our acquisition and development opportunities, which continues to be an integral part of our growth strategy," said CEO Michel Dallaire in a statement.
