The Qualifying Transaction involved the acquisition by a Delaware-based subsidiary of Sun, SunResREIT US Inc., of a 51% interest in a Tallahassee, Florida-based multi-family residential property (the "QT Property") from Westdale Galesi Partners, LLC (the "QT Property Vendor") for an aggregate purchase price of approximately US$11.0 million (the "Acquisition").

The QT Property comprises a total of 12 buildings having three or four floors each and a total of 288 units, with 278,664 sq ft of net rentable area. The average apartment is 968 sq ft and the average rent per unit is US$1,209 per month. The QT Property currently has a 98.3% occupancy. The purchase price in respect of the Acquisition was satisfied in cash from the proceeds of the brokered and non-brokered private placements (as described further below).

Further information regarding the QT Property and the Qualifying Transaction is available in the filing statement of Sun dated January 24, 2020, which is accessible under Sun's SEDAR profile at As disclosed in the filing statement, Sun intends to carry on business as a real estate investment trust focused on acquiring additional multi-family residential properties located in the "Sunbelt" region of the United States.

Sun has submitted to the TSXV final documentation with respect to the Qualifying Transaction and, subject to the TSXV's final approval, anticipates that it will be listed as a Tier 1 Real Estate Issuer on or about February 3, 2020.

In connection with the Acquisition, Sun completed a private placement of 148,338,999 trust units of Sun for gross proceeds of C$17,058,985. The private placement consisted of: (a) a brokered offering of 102,048,130 trust units on a best-efforts agency basis at a price of C$0.115 per trust unit for gross proceeds of C$11,735,535; and (b) a non-brokered offering of 46,290,869 trust units at a price of C$0.115 per trust unit for gross proceeds of C$5,323,449.94.

(collectively, the "Agents"). In consideration for their services, the Agents were paid a cash commission of 10% of the gross proceeds raised under the brokered portion of the private placement, being C$1,173,554, plus reasonable fees and expenses. All trust units issued in connection with the brokered and non-brokered private placements are subject to a statutory four-month-and-one-day hold period.
