CHC Realty Capital Corp. Announces Completion of Qualifying Transaction

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/14 -- CHC Realty Capital Corp. ("CHC" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CHC.P) is pleased to announce today that it has closed its previously announced Qualifying Transaction, as defined under TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") Policy 2.4 - Capital Pool Companies. As disclosed in the Company's press release dated January 9, 2014 and in its filing statement dated March 21, 2014 (the "Filing Statement"), the Qualifying Transaction involved the acquisition of the "Liberty Terrace" student housing property located at 335 Barrie Street in Kingston, Ontario (the "Property"), comprising 18 student beds and 1,108 square feet of ground floor commercial space in close proximity to Queen's University. Further information regarding the Property and the Qualifying Transaction is available in the Filing Statement, which is accessible under the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

The purchase price for the Property was $2,500,000, which the Company satisfied through the assumption of the existing mortgage on the Property in the principal amount of $1,260,253 and the payment to the vendor of the balance of the purchase price of $1,239,747 in cash from the Company's existing funds.

The Company has submitted final documentation with respect to the Qualifying Transaction to the TSXV and, subject to the TSXV's final approval, anticipates that it will be listed on the TSXV as a Tier 2 Real Estate Issuer.

The closing of the Qualifying Transaction is intended to form part of a series of transactions which will result in CHC carrying on business as an owner and operator of student housing properties located in Canada with an internalized executive management platform and, at an appropriate time, the effective conversion of CHC into a real estate investment trust focused on student housing, subject to receipt of all necessary approvals, including that of the TSXV.

Mark Hansen, President and CEO of CHC, commented "We are excited about completing the Qualifying Transaction. We believe there are tremendous opportunities in the student housing space. While this is a small first step, we anticipate a very active time ahead in working towards our goal of becoming the leading consolidator of high quality student housing assets in Canada, and look forward to sharing additional developments with our shareholders as they progress."

The Company also wishes to correct an omission in the Filing Statement. In Note 2(a) to the pro forma statement of financial position attached as Appendix 3 to the Filing Statement, the pro forma effective income tax rate applicable to the operations of CHC following the completion of the Qualifying Transaction will be approximately 26.5%.
