Dream Global REIT Announces Date for Redemption of 5.5% Convertible Debentures

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 11, 2016) -


DREAM GLOBAL REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST (TSX:DRG.UN) ("Dream Global REIT") today announced that it has given notice that it will redeem all of its outstanding 5.5% convertible unsecured subordinated debentures (the "5.5% Debentures") on September 15, 2016 (the "Redemption Date"). Dream Global REIT had previously announced its intention to redeem the 5.5% Debentures.

The redemption price has been determined in accordance with the provisions of the indenture related to the 5.5% Debentures dated August 3, 2011 (the "Indenture"). The redemption price will be paid in cash and will be equal to the aggregate of (i) $1,000 for each $1,000 principal amount of 5.5% Debentures issued and outstanding on the Redemption Date, and (ii) all accrued and unpaid interest on the 5.5% Debentures up to but excluding the Redemption Date from and including the latest interest payment date (the "Redemption Price"). The aggregate principal amount of the 5.5% Debentures currently outstanding is $160,975,000.

Notice of redemption has been delivered to Computershare Trust Company of Canada, as indenture trustee for the 5.5% Debentures, in accordance with the Indenture.

The 5.5% Debentures are listed for trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the trading symbol "DRG.DB". The 5.5% Debentures may be converted in accordance with their terms into units of Dream Global REIT until 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on September 14, 2016.

Beneficial holders of the 5.5% Debentures should contact their investment dealer or other firm through which they hold 5.5% Debentures if they have any questions about the redemption. No action is required to be taken by beneficial holders of 5.5% Debentures if they wish to have their 5.5% Debentures redeemed. However, if such beneficial holders wish to convert their 5.5% Debentures before they are redeemed, they should contact their investment dealer or other firm through which they hold 5.5% Debentures. Intermediaries such as investment dealers, banks, trust companies or other financial institutions who maintain their interests in the 5.5% Debentures through CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. ("CDS") should contact their CDS customer service representative with any questions about the redemption.
