Special Distribution

The special distribution announced on December 18, 2013 in respect of First Asset Canadian REIT Income Fund has been revised (the "Special Distribution") as noted in the table below. The Special Distribution is confirmed and will be paid in cash and in units. One-quarter will be paid in cash, and the balance will be paid by the issuance of units of the Fund, and immediately thereafter, the issued and outstanding capital of the Fund will be consolidated such that the number of issued and outstanding units of the Fund does not change. As a result, the net asset value per unit of the Fund will decrease by an amount equal to the cash portion of the Special Distribution. The cash portion of the Special Distribution is intended to cover the maximum tax liability for capital gains for unitholders in the highest marginal tax bracket (premised on the special distribution being comprised of capital gains).
