TORONTO, Jan. 31, 2017 /CNW/ - Summit Industrial Income REIT ("Summit" or the "REIT") (TSX: SMU.UN) announced today that it has completed its previously-announced public offering (the "Offering") of 7,423,250 units at a price of $6.20 per unit for total gross proceeds of approximately $46.0 million, which includes proceeds from the full exercise of an over-allotment option to purchase an additional 968,250 units. The Offering was completed on a bought deal basis by a syndicate of underwriters led by BMO Capital Markets and CIBC Capital Markets, with BMO Capital Markets acting as the sole bookrunner.

The REIT is currently in negotiations in connection with opportunities that may be suitable for the potential acquisition of several light industrial properties located in the REIT's main target markets. If such opportunities are to materialize, their completion will be subject to a number of conditions consistent with the REIT's ordinary acquisition practices.
Summit Industrial Income REIT is an unincorporated open-end trust focused on growing and managing a portfolio of light industrial properties across Canada. Summit's units are listed on the TSX and trade under the symbol SMU.UN. For more information, please visit our web site at www.summitIIreit.com.
