Northview Apartment REIT Announces Filing of Preliminary Short Form Base Shelf Prospectus

CALGARY, Alberta, Sept. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northview Apartment Real Estate Investment Trust ("Northview" or the "Trust") (NVU.UN – TSX) announced today that it has filed a preliminary base shelf prospectus with the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces and territories of Canada. The final base shelf prospectus will be valid for a period of 25 months after all the receipts of the final base shelf prospectus are received. During this period, Northview may offer and issue, from time to time, Trust units, debt securities and subscription receipts, or any combination thereof, (collectively, the "Securities"), for an aggregate offering amount of up to $750 million. Any issue of Securities under the base shelf prospectus will require the filing of a prospectus supplement that will include specific terms of the Securities being offered. Unless otherwise indicated in a prospectus supplement relating to a particular offering of Securities, Northview expects to use the net proceeds to finance growth opportunities, for general trust purposes, and to repay existing or future indebtedness.

This media release does not constitute an offer to sell securities, nor is it a solicitation of an offer to buy securities in any jurisdiction. No securities may be sold nor may be offered prior to obtaining all the receipts for the final base shelf prospectus from each of the provinces and territories.
