The final long form prospectus is accessible through SEDAR+

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

TORONTO, June 27, 2024 /CNW/ - Clear Sky Land Lease Communities Fund I (the "Trust") announced today that it has filed with the securities commissions or similar authorities in each of the provinces of Canada, and obtained a receipt for, a final prospectus (the "Prospectus") for its initial public offering of trust units (the "Offering"). The Prospectus qualifies the distribution of a minimum of C$35 million (the "Minimum Offering") and a maximum of C$60 million (the "Maximum Offering") of Class A Units, Class F Units and/or Class U Units of the Trust at a price of C$10.00 per Class A Unit and Class F Unit and US$10.00 per Class U Unit. It is expected that the Offering will close on or about July 9, 2024.

The Trust is an unincorporated investment trust and was established for the primary purpose of investing in a portfolio of seven income-producing manufactured housing communities ("MHCs") in the United States. Following completion of the Offering, the Trust intends to indirectly acquire two of the MHCs if only the Minimum Offering is sold, one or more of five additional MHCs if more than C$40 million is sold, and all seven MHCs if the Maximum Offering is sold. The balance of the net proceeds of the Offering will be used to satisfy payment of other acquisition related costs, capital expenditures on the seven to-be-acquired properties and working capital.

Forward-looking Statements

This news release contains statements that include forward-looking information within the meaning of Canadian securities laws. These forward-looking statements reflect the current expectations of the Trust and Clear Sky regarding future events, including statements concerning the use of proceeds of the Offering and the expected closing date of the Offering. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by terms such as "may", "might", "will", "could", "should", "would", "occur", "expect", "plan", "anticipate", "believe", "intend", "seek", "aim", "estimate", "target", "project", "predict", "forecast", "potential", "continue", "likely", "schedule", or the negative thereof or other similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts.

Material factors and assumptions used by management of the Trust to develop the forward-looking information include, but are not limited to, the Trust's current expectations about: the expected closing date of the Offering, opportunities, market standards, vacancy and rental growth rates in the U.S. MHC market; demographic trends in the U.S.; the realization of property value appreciation and timing thereof; the inventory of MHCs and manufactured homes; the price at which the MHCs may be disposed and the timing thereof; closing and other transaction costs in connection with the acquisition and disposition of the MHCs; the availability of mortgage financing and current interest rates; the capital structure of the Trust; the extent of competition for MHCs and manufactured homes; assumptions about the markets in which the Trust intends to operate; expenditures and fees in connection with the maintenance, operation and administration of the MHCs; the ability of Clear Sky to manage and operate the MHCs; the global and U.S. economic environment, including changes in interest rates and the rate of inflation; fluctuating global economic conditions, demand levels for MHCs in the U.S., the U.S. housing market, work-from-home policies, and MHC development activity; the impact of negative geopolitical events, including the conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East; foreign currency exchange rates; and governmental regulations or tax laws. While management of the Trust considers these assumptions to be reasonable based on currently available information, they may prove to be incorrect.

Although Clear Sky believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable and represent the Trust's internal projections, expectations and beliefs at this time, such statements involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties that may be general or specific and which give rise to the possibility that expectations, forecasts, predictions, projections or conclusions will not prove to be accurate, that assumptions may not be correct and that objectives, strategic goals and priorities will not be achieved. A variety of factors, many of which are beyond the Trust's control, may affect the operations, performance and results of the Trust, and could cause actual results in future periods to differ materially from current expectations of estimated or anticipated events or results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such factors include the risks identified in the Prospectus, including under the heading "Risk Factors" therein. Readers are cautioned against placing undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Except as required by applicable Canadian securities laws, the Trust undertakes no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, after the date on which the statements are made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
