AEW UK REIT Plc (the "Company")

Statement re the Investment Manager

 

The Company's Investment Manager, AEW UK Investment Management LLP ("AEW UK") was established as a joint venture between AEW in Europe ("AEW") and the AEW UK Management Team1 ("Evergreen")2 in 2011 to focus on UK real estate strategies. The Company announces that pursuant to the terms of the joint venture agreement, AEW has issued a call notice to acquire Evergreen's interest in AEW UK such that following the transaction AEW would own 100% of AEW UK. The respective management teams are in advanced discussions  and AEW remains committed to building on the successful UK platform that has been established in partnership with the AEW UK management team. While discussions are at an advanced stage, there can be no guarantee that the transaction will complete. The Board does not anticipate any change to the investment management mandate with AEW. The Company will make a further announcement, as appropriate, in due course.

 

Notes:

1 The AEW UK Management Team comprises Richard Tanner, Rachel McIsaac and Nick Winsley.

2 Evergreen is the legal entity which holds the AEW UK Management Team and other senior employees interest in AEW UK.
