Cominar Real Estate Investment Trust Closes $350 Million Unsecured Revolving 
Credit Facility 
QUÉBEC CITY, Aug. 6, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Cominar Real Estate Investment Trust 
("Cominar") (TSX: CUF.UN) announced today that it has closed a $350 million 
three-year senior unsecured credit facility with National Bank of Canada 
serving as lead arranger and administrative agent, and a syndicate of lenders 
comprised of National Bank of Canada, Bank of Montreal, Caisse Centrale 
Desjardins, Bank of Nova Scotia, Royal Bank of Canada, TD Bank, ATB Financial 
and Canadian Western Bank. Borrowings under this new facility may be increased 
up to $550 million, subject to lenders' consent. This new facility replaces 
Cominar's prior $300 million secured credit facility and provides borrowing 
availability based, among other things, on Cominar maintaining unencumbered 
aggregate assets in an amount of not less than 130% of the aggregate principal 
amount of its senior unsecured indebtedness outstanding. Cominar's 
unencumbered aggregate assets currently stand at $2.3 billion representing 
160% of aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured indebtedness 
Borrowings under the new facility are priced off a ratings grid and Cominar 
will benefit from a reduction of 30 basis points compared to its prior secured 
credit facility. Borrowings under the new facility rank pari passu with 
Cominar's senior unsecured debentures. 
"We are pleased to complete this $350 million senior unsecured credit 
facility; it is an important part of our overall financing strategy 
emphasizing financial flexibility and increasing use of unsecured debt. We 
will also be introducing a similar covenant of aggregate unencumbered assets 
to aggregate senior unsecured debt of 130% for the benefit of all holders of 
Cominar's existing and future senior unsecured debentures," stated Michel 
Dallaire, President and CEO of Cominar.
