Yorkton Equity Group Inc.


Edmonton, AlbertaTheNewswire – October 18th, 2023 – Yorkton Equity Group Inc. (TSXV:YEG) (“Yorkton” or the “Company”) is very pleased to announce the successful closing of the acquisition of the “The FUSE”, a one hundred and twenty-five (125) unit condominium grade multi-family residential complex that was constructed in 2015, and is comprised of two buildings situated on approximately 2.67 acres of land located in the Summerside neighborhood with the municipal addresses of 2105 and 2109 68 Street SW, Edmonton, Alberta (the “Property”).  This acquisition, previously announced on October 2nd, 2023, was successfully completed on October 17th, 2023 for a purchase price of $25,625,000 which has been funded by a combination of the Company’s cash for the down payment and a Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (“CMHC”) insured mortgage.


The Property has an occupancy rate of 98.4% with a projected total annual revenue of approximately $2.0 million or an annual Net Operating Income (NOI) of about $1.22 million, as well as a capitalization rate of approximately 4.78% based on the purchase price. Yorkton believes that there will be a strong potential to grow the NOI in the coming years.


Mr. Ben Lui, President and CEO of Yorkton comments that, “I am excited to report the closing of the acquisition of The FUSE, which represents yet another milestone in Yorkton’s ongoing rapid growth.  Following on the recent acquisition of The Dwell, a 188-unit newly constructed luxurious condo grade multi-family complex as previously reported on February 28th, 2023, Yorkton has increased its total number of residential units by more than 150% and its total asset value by about 120% during 2023.  With the current strong in-migration into Alberta, resulting in a tight residential rental market with low vacancy rates, Yorkton sees this as a window of opportunity to continue our rapid growth and expects that The FUSE, together with the existing portfolio, are well positioned to deliver positive financial results in the coming years.”


Mr. Bill Smith, Chairman of the Board comments that, “The Board is very pleased with the execution performance and strong commitment of the management team towards fulfilling the mandate and direction of the Company, which has established a sound foundation for the future growth of Yorkton.”
