In connection with the recently completed transaction pursuant to which affiliates of real estate funds managed by affiliates of The Blackstone Group Inc. acquired all of Dream Global REIT’s subsidiaries and assets in an all-cash transaction valued at $6.2 billion (the “Transaction”), as stated in the management information circular of Dream Global REIT, dated October 13, 2019, management did not expect the Special Distribution or Redemption Amount to include distributions of Ordinary Income. Following the closing of the Transaction on December 10th, management of Dream Global REIT has determined that the Special Distribution and Redemption Amount will be reported by the REIT as not including any distributions of Ordinary Income.
Dream Global REIT pays a monthly distribution to its Unitholders of which only a portion is taxable. The non-taxable portion of any net realized capital gains and any other amount in excess of the net income of Dream Global REIT payable to the Unitholder will not generally be included in the Unitholder’s income for the year.
The Trust has determined that the distributions should be treated in the following manner:
|December 10, 2019 – Special Distribution||2019 – Regular Monthly Distribution||2018||2017|
|Foreign non-business income||0.00%||0.00%||83.17%||61.70%|
|Return of capital||33.43%||0.00%||16.83%||37.20%|
For the calendar year 2018, our distributions are incorrectly coded as “foreign business income” for taxable income reporting purposes, which differs from prior years’ allocation as “foreign non-business income”. Allocation of the Trust’s distribution as either business or non-business income has no impact on unitholders’ tax returns as no foreign taxes are being allocated in respect of the Trust’s distributions. The Trust has amended the T3 reporting slips for immediate re-issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
|Foreign non-business income||36.57%||43.6%||48.3%||47.6%||39.0%||44.9%|
|Return of capital||62.29%||56.4%||50.3%||52.4%||61.0%||55.%|

Income Tax Considerations – Distributions
A holder of Dream Global REIT Units is generally required to include the taxable income received from the REIT in his or her income tax return. The taxable portion of the distribution has to be included even if the distribution is reinvested under the Distribution Reinvestment and Unit Purchase Plan.
Canadian Unitholders will receive a Statement of Trust Income Allocations and Designations (T3) for income tax purposes. You should receive a statement either from your financial institution or stockbroker if you hold your Units in an account or directly from Dream Global REIT’s transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company of Canada, if you are a registered Unitholder and are in possession of a Unit Certificate.
Non-resident Unitholders should receive a Statement of Amounts Paid or Credited to Non-Residents of Canada (NR4) with the taxable income reported in box 16 and the non-resident tax withheld shown in box 17.
