The Company is currently well positioned, with a diversified income portfolio of industrial, office, and retail assets. Approximately 81% of the Company’s investment properties are located in British Columbia where the provincial government has taken a phased approach to reopening and the province is currently in phase 3 of a 4 phased reopening. The Company has agreed to some short-term rent deferrals and rent relief, including rent relief through government assistance programs, for certain tenants that have been significantly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition, employees and directors of the Company have taken a temporary reduction in compensation. These are uncertain and challenging times and management will be continuing to monitor business developments and market conditions and any effect they may have on the business.
