WINNIPEG, MANITOBA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Artis Real Estate Investment Trust (TSX: AX.UN) ("Artis" or the "REIT") is pleased to announce that Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) has issued a report with respect to the upcoming annual and special meeting of unitholders to be held on June 19, 2014. ISS recommended that unitholders vote to re-elect all of the trustees of Artis, to approve the renewal of Artis' unitholder rights plan and to approve Artis' new fixed equity incentive plan.

Artis' new fixed equity incentive plan is in substantially the same form as Artis' current equity incentive plan, other than the changes described in the management information circular dated May 2, 2014 and other minor changes set forth in the draft fixed equity incentive plan which was filed on SEDAR on May 30, 2014.

In addition to the changes described in the management information circular dated May 2, 2014, the plan will provide that: (i) a trustee (who is not an employee, officer or service provider) may not be granted in excess of $150,000 in awards in any fiscal year; and (ii) the aggregate number of units underlying awards granted to trustees (who are not employees, officers or service providers) pursuant to this plan shall not exceed 1% of the issued and outstanding units on June 19, 2014. The trustees will not be able to amend the provisions of the plan relating to maximum trustee compensation without unitholder approval.

The draft of Artis' fixed equity incentive plan, which was filed on May 30, 2014, is available for review on SEDAR.
