Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust - TSX accepts renewal of normal course issuer bid

CALGARY, Aug. 19 /CNW/ - Boardwalk Real Estate Investment Trust ("Boardwalk") is pleased 
to announce that The Toronto Stock Exchange has accepted its notice of intention to renew 
its normal course issuer bid (the "Bid"). 

Boardwalk has 48,080,331 issued and outstanding trust units as of today's date. The public 
float of trust units of Boardwalk is 39,182,856. The Bid allows Boardwalk to purchase up 
to 3,918,286 trust units, representing 10% of its "public float" of trust units, through 
the facilities of The Toronto Stock Exchange. The average daily trading volume for the six 
calendar months prior to the date hereof was 85,028 trust units (25% being 21,257 trust units). 
The Bid will commence on August 24, 2010 and will terminate on August 23, 2011 or such 
earlier time as the Bid is complete. 

Boardwalk has purchased 207,400 trust units within the past 12 months at a weighted average 
price of $39.42 per trust unit. 

Boardwalk believes that the current and recent market prices of its trust units do not 
reflect their underlying value. Boardwalk's management is initiating this program as 
it feels that, at current market prices, an investment in Boardwalk's own high quality 
portfolio will deliver strong returns for unitholders and represents an effective use of 
its capital and steadily increasing cash flows. At the same time, Boardwalk plans to 
continue its property acquisition and capital improvement programs. Boardwalk will purchase 
the trust units for cancellation with the intention of increasing the proportionate interest 
of all remaining unitholders.
