Firm Capital Property Trust Announces Adoption of Deferred Unit Plan

TORONTO, Aug. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Firm Capital Property Trust (“FCPT” or the “Trust”) (TSXV : FCD.UN) is pleased to announce the adoption of a deferred unit plan (the “Plan”) following approval by disinterested unitholders at the Trust’s annual and special meeting of unitholders held on August 1, 2018. The Plan has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) and is subject to its final approval.

The Plan will promote the interests of the Trust by attracting and retaining qualified persons to serve on the board of trustees (the “Board”). The Board or a duly constituted committee thereof will administer the Plan and determine which members of the Board are eligible to participate (the “Participants”, each trustee being a “Participant”) and to whom awards of deferred units (the “Deferred Units”) will be made.

The maximum number of Deferred Units which may be awarded under the Plan is 1,722,402, or such greater number as may be approved from time to time by ordinary resolution of the disinterested unitholders of the Trust, subject to regulatory approval, provided that in no event will the total number of units reserved for issuance under all of the Trust’s unit-based compensation arrangements exceed 20% of the then issued and outstanding units. The aggregate value of Deferred Units awarded to the Participants within any one-year period under the Plan together with all other security based compensation arrangements of the Trust, if any, shall not exceed $150,000 in value of equity per Participant.

Upon a Participant ceasing to be a member of the Board, the Participant may provide notice within one business day following the date on which the Participant ceases to hold any position as a trustee of the Trust and its subsidiaries (the “Termination Date”) and ending on the ninetieth day following the Termination Date to redeem his or her Deferred Units. The Board shall determine if the award shall settle in cash or units, net of any applicable withholding taxes, as follows: (i) a cash payment equal to the number of Deferred Units credited to the Participant’s account as of the Termination Date, multiplied by the closing price of a unit on the TSXV averaged over the five consecutive trading days immediately preceding the Termination Date; (ii) units purchased on the Participant’s behalf on the open market by a broker; or (iii) a combination thereof. In the absence of the giving of a notice of redemption, the Participant will be deemed to have elected a cash payment. In the event of death of a Participant, provided that no notice of redemption is provided to the Trust, the Trust shall within one calendar year in the case of a non-U.S. Participant, make a lump sum cash payment for the benefit of the administrator or liquidator of the individual. The lump sum cash payment would be equivalent to the cash payment on the Termination Date.

The Board may from time to time amend, suspend or terminate the Plan in whole or in part without further disinterested unitholder approval, subject to regulatory approval and the terms of the Plan in respect of amendments requiring unitholder approval.

A full copy of the Plan will be filed by the Trust on SEDAR at
