Repayment of debt and new financing

During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Corporation reduced its 
debt by $11 million, a total reduction of 12% since year end. Total debt at 
September 30, 2012 was $77.2 million.

On October 30, 2012, the Corporation entered into a commitment letter in the 
amount of $71.5 million to receive development financing for its Sage Hill 
Crossing commercial project. The financing will be used to repay the existing 
loan amounting to $16.7 million and to complete servicing of Sagehill Crossing 
commercial project. All advances to complete the servicing will be funded on a 
cost to complete basis. A previously disclosed sale to Riocan Real Estate 
Investment Trust in the amount of $31.7 million will be recognized upon 
substantial completion of servicing of the lands under the agreement.


The Calgary market appears set for a period of stable growth after 
experiencing significant improvements year over year. Genesis has an inventory 
of 444 fully serviced lots, 9 professionally staged show homes and a supply of 
approved lands within the Calgary Metropolitan Area ("CMA"). These assets 
serve Genesis well in a stable market while also allowing for adjustments 
should the market fluctuate.  The focus of the Corporation in 2012 continues 
to be the optimization of operations, core lands and housing operations.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information

This press release contains certain statements which constitute 
forward-looking statements or information ("forward-looking statements") 
within the meaning of applicable securities legislation concerning the 
business, operations and financial performance and condition of Genesis. 
Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements with 
respect to the estimated corporate tax rate and the number of dwelling sites 
that Genesis will actually develop and sell. Generally, these 
forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking 
terminology such as "plans", "expects" or "does not expect", "is expected", 
"budget", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "anticipates" or 
"does not anticipate", or "believes", or variations of such words and phrases 
or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", 
"might" or "will be taken", "occur" or "be achieved". Although Genesis 
believes that the anticipated future results, performance or achievements 
expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements are based upon 
reasonable assumptions and expectations, the reader should not place undue 
reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve assumptions, known 
and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual 
results, performance or achievements of Genesis to differ materially from 
anticipated future results, performance or achievement expressed or implied by 
such forward-looking statements. Accordingly, Genesis cannot give any 
assurance that its expectations will in fact occur and cautions that actual 
results may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. 
Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those set 
forth in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, 
general economic conditions; local real estate conditions, including the 
development of properties in close proximity to Genesis' properties; timely 
leasing of newly-developed properties and re-leasing of occupied square 
footage upon expiration; dependence on tenants' financial condition; the 
uncertainties of real estate development and acquisition activity; the ability 
to effectively integrate acquisitions; interest rates; availability of equity 
and debt financing; the impact of newly-adopted accounting principles on 
Genesis' accounting policies and on period-to-period comparisons of financial 
results; economic conditions in Western Canada, not realizing on the 
anticipated benefits from the transaction or not realizing on such anticipated 
benefits within the expected time frame and other risks and factors described 
from time to time in the documents filed by Genesis with the securities 
regulators in Canada available at, including the Annual 
Information Form under the heading "Risk Factors" and in Genesis' most recent 
interim report under the heading "Management's Discussion and Analysis." 
Furthermore, the forward-looking statements contained in this press release 
are made as of the date of this press release and, except as required by 
applicable law, Genesis does not undertake any obligation to publicly update 
or to revise any of the forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new 
information, future events or otherwise.

Caution should be exercised in the evaluation and use of the appraisal 
results. The appraisal is an estimate of market value at specific dates and 
not a precise measure of value, being based on subjective comparison of 
related activity taking place in the real estate market. The appraisal is 
based on various assumptions of future expectations and while the appraiser's 
assumptions are considered to be reasonable at the current time, some of the 
assumptions may not materialize or may differ materially from actual 
experience in the future.
