Manulife US REIT

Manulife US REIT said Thursday three of its U.S. sub-REITs have each issued 115 preferred units at US$1,000 each to persons unrelated to the REIT or to The Manufacturers Life Insurance Co. to meet requirements for U.S. income tax purposes. 

The proceeds from preferred units’ issuance will be used to pay operating expenses of the sub-REITs, the REIT’s properties and the preferred units’ issuance, the REIT said in a filing to SGX.

Each of the preferred units carries a fixed dividend of 12 percent a year, the REIT said.
