BSR REIT Announces New Canadian Dollar Listing on Toronto Stock Exchange

LITTLE ROCK, AR and TORONTO, June 6, 2019 /CNW/ - BSR Real Estate Investment Trust ("BSR", or the "REIT") (TSX: HOM.U) today announced the introduction of a Canadian dollar listing of its units on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX").

Effective June 10, 2019, the units will commence trading on the TSX in Canadian dollars under the symbol "HOM.UN". The units will continue to trade in U.S. dollars under the existing symbol "HOM.U".

The units to be traded under the symbol HOM.UN will have the same CUSIP number as the units trading under the symbol HOM.U. Accordingly, the number of issued and outstanding units will not change. The REIT currently has 16,550,000 units outstanding.

The REIT's distributions will continue to be paid to unitholders in U.S. dollars for both the HOM.U and HOM.UN listings.

"We are pleased to introduce this Canadian dollar listing, which provides an opportunity for our Canadian investors to transact in their domestic currency," said John Bailey, BSR's Chief Executive Officer. "A majority of our investors are based in Canada, and this listing provides them with more flexibility. We are also optimistic that the listing will lead to increased trading activity."

Unitholders should consult their financial advisors for more information regarding the dual currency listing, including their ability to exchange U.S. dollar denominated units for Canadian dollar denominated units.
