Global Real Estate Dividend Growers Corp. Announces Exchange Ratios

CALGARY, July 7, 2015 /CNW/ - Middlefield Group, on behalf of Global Real Estate Dividend Growers Corp. (the "Fund"), is pleased to announce the exchange ratios for the exchange offer by the Fund (the "Exchange Option") being made under the final prospectus of the Fund dated June 24, 2015.

The Fund's investment objectives are to provide holders of shares with:

(i)  stable monthly cash distributions and to grow distributions over time, and

(ii) enhanced long-term total return through capital appreciation of the Fund's investment portfolio,

through an investment strategy which focuses primarily on investing in securities of issuers operating in the global real estate sector and related industries and that have exhibited sustainable dividend growth.

The initial target distribution yield for the Fund is 6.0% per annum based on the original subscription price (or $0.05 per share per month or $0.60 per share per annum).

The number of shares issuable for each class of security of an Exchange Eligible Issuer (as listed below) (the "Exchange Ratio") has been determined by dividing the weighted average trading price of such security on the Toronto Stock Exchange (or such other exchange or market on which such security is then listed) during the period of five consecutive trading days ending on July 7, 2015 (the "Pricing Period"), as adjusted to reflect distributions declared by any Exchange Eligible Issuer that will not be received by the Fund, by $10.00. Holders of securities of Exchange Eligible Issuers who deposited such securities pursuant to the Exchange Option will continue to be holders of record up to but not including the date of the closing of the offering of shares and will be entitled to receive distributions in respect of such securities of Exchange Eligible Issuers that are declared up to but not including such date. Each Exchange Ratio will be rounded down to five decimal places.

The table below sets out the Exchange Eligible Issuers, the securities of which may be accepted by the Fund pursuant to the Exchange Option, including the name of the Exchange Eligible Issuer, its ticker symbol, its CUSIP number, its ISIN, its volume weighted average trading price during the Pricing Period and the Exchange Ratio.
