Partners REIT Amends and Extends Revolving Credit Facility 
VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/04/13 -- Partners
Real Estate Investment Trust (TSX:PAR.UN) (the "REIT" or "Partners
REIT") announced today it has extended and amended its existing
revolving credit facility (the "revolver") which is provided by a
consortium of Canadian chartered banks consisting of Royal Bank of
Canada, Bank of Nova Scotia and Laurentian Bank of Canada. The
revolver has a formula-based maximum not to exceed $40 million,
bearing interest at the bank's prime rate plus 1.0% per annum or the
Banker's Acceptance stamping fee plus 2.25% per annum, along with a
.25% fee on the undrawn portion of the maximum facility committed.
The amended revolver is currently secured by five of the REIT's
properties and can be expanded up to an additional $20 million to a
$60 million maximum with the securitization of additional
unencumbered properties. The revolver can be utilized for general
operating purposes, including the acquisition of additional assets. 
The amended revolver also now includes a $5 million carve out tied to
the Partners REIT's bank account to efficiently managed daily cash
inflows and outflows. The revolver will mature in March of 2015 and
may be extended for one additional year and each year thereafter,
subject to lender approval.
