/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

TORONTO, Sept. 19, 2019 /CNW/ - CT Real Estate Investment Trust ("CT REIT") (TSX: CRT.UN) and a subsidiary of Canadian Tire Corporation, Limited ("Canadian Tire", "CTC" or the "Company") (TSX: CTC) (TSX: CTC.A) announced today that they have closed the previously announced public offering of 16,846,000 Units of CT REIT ("Units") at a price of $14.25 per Unit (the "Offering"). The Offering consisted of a secondary offering of 10,530,000 Units by CTC and a treasury offering of 6,316,000 Units by CT REIT for gross proceeds of approximately $150 million and $90 million, respectively.

The net proceeds of the secondary offering will be used by CTC to support the continued investment in its business, including recently completed acquisitions, and for general corporate purposes. The net proceeds of the treasury offering will be used by CT REIT to pay down amounts owing on its credit facility, to fund its investment program and for general working capital and corporate purposes. The combined secondary and treasury offering strengthens CT REIT by increasing its public float, thereby enhancing the trading liquidity of CT REIT's units which should qualify for eventual inclusion in certain broader market indices.

The Offering was made through a syndicate of underwriters led by CIBC Capital Markets, RBC Capital Markets and BMO Capital Markets (the "Underwriters"). The Underwriters were granted an over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 2,457,000 Units in the aggregate from CT REIT and a subsidiary of CTC on the same terms and conditions as the Offering, exercisable at any time, in whole or in part, for a period of 30 days following the closing of the Offering.

As a result of the Offering, CTC decreased its effective ownership of CT REIT to approximately 69.4% from approximately 76.1%, such that immediately following the Offering, CTC now owns, indirectly, 33,989,508 Units, 123,590,976 Class B limited partnership units of CT REIT Limited Partnership (the "Partnership") (which are exchangeable on a one-for-one basis for, and are economically equivalent to, Units and are accompanied by an equivalent number of special voting units of CT REIT) and all of the Class C limited partnership units of the Partnership. CTC intends to remain the majority unitholder of CT REIT over the long-term.

The first cash distribution which purchasers of the Units under the Offering will be entitled to receive will be for the month of September 2019, with an expected record date of September 30, 2019 and an expected payment date of October 15, 2019.

CTC and its affiliates may from time to time acquire additional securities, or dispose of securities, of CT REIT and entities controlled by CT REIT (whether in connection with property acquisition transactions or otherwise). In connection with this news release, an early warning report must be filed by CTC on CT REIT's SEDAR profile in accordance with applicable securities laws. A copy of the early warning report will be available for review on www.sedar.com or a copy can be requested from the persons listed below under the heading "For More Information".
