Nobel REIT continues to grow

MONTREAL, Aug. 26, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSXV: NEL.UN) The Nobel Real Estate Investment Trust (« Nobel REIT ») announces the filing of its interim consolidated financial statements and its management discussion and analysis report for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.

According to the President and Chief Executive of Nobel REIT, Jean Teasdale, "Despite the current situation in the stock markets, we made the acquisition at the beginning of the second quarter of 50% of businesses owning an investment property with a value of nearly $ 26 million; adding the Nobel REIT share in this building to our other investment properties, the value of our investment properties now reaches more than $ 120 million.  In addition, the net operating income from the second quarter of 2016 was up 19% from the first quarter of 2016, also when considering our share of the property held through joint ventures. When comparing the first semester of 2016 to the same period the previous year, the net operating income increased by 52%, taking into account the impact of the seven properties acquired during the second quarter of 2015. We are continuing our efforts to grow Nobel REIT, and that, in compliance with our growth plan".
