SET welcomes "AIM Industrial Growth REIT" as  first IPO of 2018

BANGKOK, January 8, 2018 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) will list AIM 
Industrial Growth Freehold and Leasehold Real Estate Investment Trust worth THB
1.55 billion (approx. USD 46.97 million) on January 9, 2018, under the ticker
symbol " AIMIRT".

SET Senior Executive Vice President Santi Kiranand said that AIMIRT will be 
listed and start trading under Property & Construction industry, Property Fund &
REITs sector, on January 9, 2018. AIMIRT has initially invested in the freehold
of the immovable assets (such as land, cold storage buildings and warehouses),
and movable assets in cold storages of JWD Infologistics pcl's group as well as
immovable assets (such as land and warehouses) in TIP 7 project of TIP Holding
Co., Ltd. (TIP).

AIMIRT offered 155 million units at THB 10.00 each, for a total of THB 1.55 
billion, to the group of sponsors and/or concert parties, sponsors' patronages,
institutional investors and underwriters' patronages during December 15 and
18-20, 2017. AIM REIT Management   Co., Ltd. is its REIT Manager. SCB Asset
Management Co., Ltd. is its trustee. Maybank Kim Eng Securities (Thailand) pcl
and Krungsri Securities pcl are its underwriters, while Maybank   Kim Eng
Securities (Thailand) pcl and Bank of Ayudhya pcl are its financial advisors.

AIMIRT has initially invested in the leasehold rights of immovable assets such 
as lands, cold storage buildings and warehouses and movable assets in cold
storage in four projects namely Pacific Cold Storage, JWD Pacific, Datasafe and
TIP 7 projects, with a combined leasable area of approximately 58,559 sq.m.,
average building age of 3.26 years (as of June 30, 2017) and 100 percent
occupancy rate.

AIM REIT Management Chief Executive Officer Amorn Chulaluksananukul said AIMIRT 
has initially invested in the 100 percent stake of cold storage and warehouse
located in Thailand's strategic locations that are hubs for transportation,
production, seafood product distribution and processing food, well-situated near
Suvarnabhumi Airport and Laem Chabang Deepsea Port. JWD Infologistics pcl's
group will lease back cold storage and warehouse assets in Pacific Cold Storage
(PCS), JWD Pacific (JPAC), and Datasafe projects from AIMIRT for its warehouse
and storage business operations for 10 years, with an option to renew contract
of PCS and JPAC projects for two terms of 10 years each. In addition, TIP has
also made an agreement to guarantee annual rental and service fees on a
quarterly basis for the first three years to support any shortfall from revenue
projection. This would ensure that the REIT will generate stable revenue and
provide opportunity of good and steady returns in the long run for unit holders.

AIMIRT's dividend policy is to pay quarterly at no less than 90 percent of the 
adjusted net profit of its financial year. AIMIRT's major unit holders after its
IPO are JWD Infologistics pcl (10.00 percent), Kraisakdawat Family (7.29
percent), and Thai Life Insurance pcl (6.92 percent).
