Nexus Industrial REIT Announces Suspension of Distribution Reinvestment Plan

TORONTO, June 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nexus Industrial REIT (“Nexus” or the “REIT”) (TSX: NXR.UN) today announced the suspension of its Distribution Reinvestment Plan (the “DRIP”), effective July 16, 2024.

The DRIP, which allowed eligible unitholders to reinvest all or a portion of their cash distributions into additional units of the REIT, will be suspended due to the low prevailing market unit price and the resulting unfavourable unitholder dilution. The REIT believes this action is in the best interest of its unitholders.

Unitholders participating in the DRIP will receive their distributions in cash following the July 15, 2024 distribution until further notice. The REIT will continue to evaluate the DRIP and consider reinstating it when market conditions improve. Upon reinstatement of the DRIP, plan participants enrolled in the DRIP at the time of its suspension will remain enrolled at the time of its reinstatement and will automatically resume participation in the DRIP at that time.
