(Reuters) – A joint venture between Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund GIC and Canadian industrial real estate company Dream Industrial REIT will acquire Canada’s Summit Industrial Income REIT for C$4.46 billion ($3.30 billion), the companies said in a joint statement on Monday.
The unitholders of Summit, which also manages industrial properties across Canada, will get C$23.50 per unit in cash, representing a 31.1% premium to its last close on Friday.
Including debt, the deal is valued at C$5.9 billion, the companies said.
The deal value, excluding debt, is based on Summit’s 189.85 million outstanding units as of June 30.
