IPC US REIT announces distribution and update on expected closing date



    /NOT FOR DISSEMINATION OVER UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES/

    All amounts are expressed in US dollars

    TORONTO, Nov. 20 /CNW/ - IPC US REIT (TSX: US$:IUR.U, C$:IUR.UN)
announced today that a distribution of US6.67 cents per unit has been
declared, payable on December 7, 2007, to the unitholders of record on
November 30, 2007.
    A unitholder who holds US-dollar-quoted units under the symbol "IUR.U"
will be paid the distribution in US dollars. A unitholder who holds
Canadian-dollar-quoted units under the symbol "IUR.UN" will be paid the
distribution in Canadian dollars based on the exchange rate on December 7,
2007.
    A unitholder who wishes to receive the distribution in Canadian dollars
should contact his or her broker prior to November 30, 2007 to ensure that the
units are Canadian dollar quoted units.
    The closing date is dependent upon receipt of consents from all of the
REIT's mortgage lenders approving the transfer of ultimate ownership of each
mortgaged property from the REIT to Behringer Harvard. This is a lengthy
process, often requiring three levels of approval by loan servicers and their
counsel, and then confirmation by one or more rating agencies that the change
in ultimate ownership will not affect the rating of the mortgage on the
individual property.
    Almost all servicer consents to the transfer have been received and we
are awaiting several rating agency confirmations as described above. Once
these confirmations have been received, we will issue a press release and
establish a closing date seven business days later to comply with TSX
requirements.
    Based on the current status, we expect the transaction to close in the
middle of December.
