Investment Trust ("the Trust") (TSX: MRT.UN) today is pleased to announce its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.  These results have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). </p><p>The Trust's net income and comprehensive income for the three months ended June 30, 2018, was $43.4 million versus $52.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017.</p><p>The decrease of $9.0 million is largely the result of fair value changes.  Fair value gains for the three months ended June 30, 2018, were $22.1 million, versus an overall gain of $28.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017.</p><p>Income before fair value gains and net income from equity-accounted investment was $22.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to $23.2 million for the same period ended June 30, 2017.  The decrease of $1.3 million is largely the result of a decrease in net operating income.</p><p>Net operating income was $36.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, versus $38.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017.</p><p>The decrease in net operating income of $1.1 million is largely the result of increased vacancy and lower base rents in the Trust's office and retail portfolios.  In the retail portfolio, increased vacancy, including the impact of vacancy tied to the Sears Canada Inc. space (approximately $0.4 million), and reduced rental rates were partially offset by increased revenue from the Trust's development program.  Since January 1, 2017, 303,700 square feet of development activity became income producing.  These projects contributed $1.4 million to revenue in the second quarter, an increase of $1.0 million from the second quarter of 2017.</p><p>The Trust's fully diluted funds from operations ("FFO") for the three months ended June 30, 2018, was $24.8 million ($0.36 per unit) versus $26.0 million ($0.38 per unit) for the same three months ended June 30, 2017.  This represents a decrease of $1.2 million ($0.02 per unit).  The decrease in FFO is largely attributed to the decrease in net operating income.</p><p>The Trust continues with its development program and expects an additional 197,500 square feet of new area under intensification and remerchandised area to become income producing by the end of 2018.  The Trust has secured commitments on 79% of the remerchandised area and 57% of the area under intensification.</p><p><strong>Net Operating Income, Funds from Operations</strong></p><p>This press release and accompanying financial information make reference to net operating income and funds from operations on a total and per unit basis.  Net operating income is defined as income from property operations after operating expenses have been deducted, but prior to deducting interest expense, general and administrative expenses and fair value gains/(losses).  The Trust presents FFO in accordance with the Real Property Association of Canada white paper on funds from operations and adjusted funds from operations for IFRS issued February 2018.  FFO is a non-GAAP measure that is widely accepted as a supplemental measure of financial performance for real estate entities.  In accordance with such white paper, the Trust defines FFO as net income adjusted for fair value changes on real estate properties and gains/(losses) on the sale of real estate properties.</p><p><strong>Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis</strong></p><p>The Trust's Q2 2018 Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis along with its 2017 Annual Report are available on the Trust's website at <a href="/" target="_blank"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><font

The REIT plans to complete significant capital upgrades during the remainder of 2018, at which point initial lease up will commence.  The newly acquired property, located in the Garden District is within close proximity to The Georgian, the REIT's 135 suite mid-rise apartment complex and nearby Tulane and Loyola universities. The acquisition allows the REIT to increase its presence in the immediate area and to benefit from management efficiencies between the two properties.<br><br></li><li

"With quality office and industrial space at a premium, apartments are a crowd favourite as investors search for yield."</p><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>Multi-suite residential properties bucked the second quarter trend, with transaction volumes growing by 17.5% year-over-year. Persistent rental growth, combined with a positive long-term sector forecast, has led to rising values for apartment properties in most of Canada's major markets. The U.S. multi-suite residential sector also continued to provide value for Canadian investors, given healthy fundamentals driven by positive demographic trends and stable demand.</p><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>The supply-demand imbalance has driven up prices in key markets and asset types to an extent, particularly for Class A, new-build assets. A shortfall of functional space has also been characteristic of the strong leasing activity in the office and industrial sectors, with cycle-low vacancy rates occurring in most regions. Newly built speculative development, while still lower than the long-term average, also saw substantial pre-leasing activity.</p><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>"Office and industrial tenants who are looking to expand or move to new premises are being forced to make do with what they have due to a lack of alternatives in the downtowns of certain metros," said Reading. "Landlords of prime assets are enjoying record occupancy levels and steadily increasing rents as supply remains tight."</p><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>On the economic front, the Bank of Canada's July interest rate increase was widely anticipated by investors. The rate hike indicates the Bank expects Canadian economic activity to pick up through the balance of the year, despite increasing concerns surrounding escalating Canada/U.S. trade tariffs and a slowdown in the national housing market.</p><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>The Second Quarter Update of the 2018 Economic Outlook and Market Fundamentals Research Report, released today by Morguard, provides a detailed analysis of the 2018 real estate investment trends to watch in Canada.
