AIP Realty Trust Announces Year-End 2022 Results

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AIP Realty Trust (the “Trust” or “AIP Realty”) (TSXV:AIP.U) today announced its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2022. All dollar amounts are stated in U.S. dollars.

2022 Highlights

  • Completed a Qualifying Transaction through a reverse take-over on April 14, 2022 (the “Qualifying Transaction”), leading to the listing of the Trust’s units on the TSX Venture Exchange with trading commencing April 21, 2022.
  • As part of the Qualifying Transaction, the Trust acquired its first property, a 100% leased multi-tenant light industrial flex facility located on Eagle Court in Lewisville, Texas (the "Eagle Court Property"). The Eagle Court Property has been 100% leased since substantial completion in June 2020.
  • The Eagle Court Property generated investment property revenue of $352,548 in 2022, comprised of tenant rental revenue and revenue from contracts with customers, specifically common area maintenance. Investment property operating expenses were $169,033, resulting in net rental income of $183,515.
  • AIP entered into forward purchase agreements during the year providing the Trust with the option to acquire up to 12 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.1
  • In total, AIP has entered into agreements to acquire up to 12 light industrial flex properties totaling 841,109 square feet of leasable space, comprised of 191 WorkSpace Shops™, 136 WorkSpace Studios™ and 339 WorkSpace Secured Parking™ spaces. The aggregate projected purchase price assuming that all of the properties are acquired by AIP would be $205,500,000.
  • Announced in the second half of 2022 that the first two of these 12 properties, a 49,713 square foot facility in Mesquite, TX and an 82,280 square foot facility in Plano, TX, were completed and fully leased. The remaining 10 properties are expected to be completed in 2023 and through the fourth quarter of 2024.
  • Initiated a quarterly distribution of $0.04 per unit in June 2022, which was reduced to $0.02 per unit in March 2023 in order to support the Trust’s priority of preserving capital to begin acquiring the properties noted above and fund working capital.

“We accomplished some key objectives in 2022, including launching AIP Realty as a publicly traded trust, validating the market demand for AllTrades-branded light industrial flex facilities, and securing a robust pipeline of potential acquisitions,” said Les Wulf, Executive Chairman, AIP Realty Trust. “Having demonstrated the healthy fundamentals of our business model, we anticipate acquiring the funding this year to continue to execute our strategy and grow the income-producing assets of the Trust.”
