MONTRÉAL, April 15, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - BTB Real Estate Investment Trust
(TSX: BTB.UN) ("BTB") announces that on April 15, 2014 it has secured with the
Laurentian Bank of Canada an acquisition line of credit of $15M and an
operation line of credit of $2M. Compared to the acquisition line of credit
previously in place, the interest rate of this new acquisition line of credit
is 200 basis points less and will therefore enable BTB to save on its
financial costs when using the acquisition line.
BTB is a real estate investment trust listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
BTB is an important owner of properties in eastern Canada. BTB owns 69
commercial, office and industrial properties for a total rentable area of
approximately 4.6 million square feet. BTB's asset value is in excess of
$545M. The objectives of BTB are: i) to grow its revenues from its assets to
increase distributable income and therefore fund distributions; (ii) to
maximize the value of its assets through dynamic management of its properties
in order to sustain the long-term value of its units; and (iii) to generate
cash distributions that are fiscally beneficial to unitholders.
BTB offers a distribution reinvestment plan to unitholders whereby the
participants may elect to have their monthly cash distribution reinvested in
additional units of BTB at a price based on the weighted average price for
BTB's Units on the Toronto Stock Exchange for the five trading days
immediately preceding the distribution date, discounted by 5%.
