Canadian Real Estate Investment Trust Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 9, 2012) - Canadian Real Estate Investment Trust ("CREIT") (TSX:REF.UN) today announced results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

For the three months ended September 30, 2012, CREIT reported Funds from Operations (FFO) of $0.67 per Unit compared to $0.60 per Unit for the same period in 2011, an increase of 12%.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, CREIT reported FFO of $1.96 per Unit. This compares to the $1.74 per Unit earned in the same period in 2011, an increase of 13% on the year-to-date results.

Stephen Johnson, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "CREIT's 13% year-to-date increase in FFO per Unit is exceptional performance in our industry for a company with our risk profile. Our base of high-quality assets continues to produce strong results and is now supplemented by the addition of $308.4 million of income-producing property through our acquisition activities and the completion of certain phases of development projects during 2012."

Since January 1, 2012, CREIT has added $308.4 million of high-quality income-producing real estate to its portfolio through acquisitions and property development.

For the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, FFO was as follows:

Three months ended September 30

($ thousands, except per Unit amounts) 2012 2011 ($) (%)

FFO per Unit $ 0.67 $ 0.60 $ 0.07 12 %

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, FFO was as follows:

The increase in FFO for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 over the nine months ended September 30, 2011 is a result of transaction activities, improvements in same-asset performance and higher interest income from the mezzanine financing program.
