AIP Realty Trust Announces Third Quarter 2022 Results

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AIP Realty Trust (the “Trust” or “AIP Realty”) (TSXV:AIP.U) today announced its financial results for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2022. All dollar amounts are stated in U.S. dollars.

Q3 2022 Highlights

  • Entered into forward purchase agreements providing the Trust with the option to acquire up to seven additional properties being developed in the Dallas-Fort Worth (“DFW”) area by AllTrades Industrial Properties, Inc. (“AllTrades”), the Trust’s exclusive development partner, and a related party of the Trust. Including previously announced agreements relating to another five properties, the Trust has now entered into agreements to acquire a total of 12 light industrial flex properties totaling 841,109 square feet of leasable space.1
  • Announced that the first of these 12 properties, a 49,713 square foot facility in Mesquite, TX, was completed in August and 100% leased by the end of September for a NNN rental average of $15.04 per square foot. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, an 82,280 square foot AllTrades facility in Plano, TX was completed and fully leased at a NNN rental average of $15.20 per square foot.
  • Generated rental revenue of $124,309 from a multi-tenant light industrial flex facility located on Eagle Court in Lewisville, TX, comprised of tenant rental revenue and revenue from contracts with customers, specifically common area maintenance. The Eagle Court facility has been 100% leased since substantial completion in June 2020. Additionally, the quality of the facility is reflected by 22% of the tenant base being the US headquarters for global companies and 40% of the tenant base being the Texas headquarters for US national companies.
  • Incurred property operating expenses of $31,431, resulting in net rental income of $92,878.
  • Declared a quarterly distribution of $0.04 per unit on September 23, 2022, which was paid to unitholders subsequent to the end of the quarter.

“Our development partner AllTrades continues to execute on its robust development portfolio, while at the same time making solid progress lining up its next group of sites on which to build its unique brand of light industrial flex facilities. These projects represent a tremendous pipeline of potential acquisitions for the Trust to evaluate and grow our business,” said Les Wulf, Executive Chairman, AIP Realty Trust. “Recent transactions demonstrate a high degree of interest and healthy fundamentals in the industrial real estate sector, and this has been further validated by strong leasing performance among the AllTrades facilities.”
