--  Strong occupancies and increased average monthly rents, combined with
    contributions from acquisitions, drive 10.6% and 15.7% increase in
    revenues in fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013,
    respectively

--  Average monthly rents for residential properties up 2.9% in 2013
    compared to last year

--  Portfolio occupancy remains strong at 98.0%, up from 97.9% last year.

--  Acquired 4,931 apartment suites and MHC sites in 2013, strengthening and
    further diversifying property portfolio

--  NFFO up 8.3% in fourth quarter and 20.2% for year ended December 31,
    2013

--  Strong accretive growth as NFFO per Unit up 5.1% in 2013 despite 14%
    increase in the weighted average number of Units outstanding.

--  Same property NOI up 3.0% in 2013

--  Closed mortgage refinancings (excluding acquisitions) for $507.9 million
    in 2013, including $333.7 million for renewals of existing mortgages and
    $174.2 million for additional top up financing with a weighted average
    term to maturity of 10 years, and a weighted average interest rate of
    3.15%.

"2013 was another record year for CAPREIT as we benefited from our significant portfolio growth over the last three years and continuing strong occupancies and increases in average monthly rents," commented Thomas Schwartz, President and CEO. "We also further strengthened and diversified our property portfolio during the year, increasing our presence in our targeted geographic markets and entering new urban growth regions that serve to enhance our risk profile."

"Looking ahead, we believe 2014 will be another strong year for CAPREIT. Our recently-acquired properties are just beginning to benefit from our proven property management programs, and we expect to generate additional portfolio growth through the year. In addition, continuing strong fundamentals in the Canadian multi-unit residential rental sector should allow us to maintain our high occupancies and track record of stable increases in average monthly rents."

Operating Revenues

For the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013, total operating revenues increased by 10.6% and 15.7%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year primarily due to the contribution from acquisitions, higher average monthly rents, and continuing strong occupancies. For the three months and year ended December 31, 2013, ancillary revenues, including parking, laundry and antenna income, rose by 16.7% and 20.6%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year, due to contributions from acquisitions and Management's continued focus on maximizing the revenue potential of its property portfolio.

CAPREIT's annualized net rental revenue run-rate as at December 31, 2013 increased to $476.4 million, up 10.8% from $429.8 million as at December 31, 2012 primarily due to acquisitions completed within the past twelve months and strong rental growth. Net rental revenue run-rate net of dispositions for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $447.5 million (2012 - $386.3 million).

(1) Prior year's comparable AMR and occupancy have been restated for
    properties disposed of in 2013.

Average monthly rents for residential suites increased by 2.9% to $1,060 as at December 31, 2013 compared to last year while occupancy increased to 98.0% due to ongoing successful sales and marketing strategies and continued strength in the residential rental sector in the majority of CAPREIT's regional markets. Average monthly rents for residential suites owned prior to December 31, 2012 increased as at December 31, 2013 to $1,061 from $1,030 as at December 31, 2012, an increase of 3.0% from last year with occupancies rising to 98.2% from 97.8%. For the MHC land lease portfolio, average monthly rents decreased to $348 as at December 31, 2013, compared to $439 as at December 31 2012, primarily due to the recent acquisitions in lower rent geographic regions. Occupancy for the MHC portfolio was 97.6% at year end compared to 99.2% last year due to the acquisition of 2,808 MHC land lease sites acquired in the fourth quarter of 2013.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
(1) Percentage of suites turned over or renewed during the period based on
    the total number of residential suites (excluding co-ownerships) held at
    the end of the period.

The lower rate of growth in average monthly rents on lease renewals during 2013 compared to the prior year is primarily due to the lower mandated guideline increases for 2013 (Ontario - 2.5%, British Columbia - 3.8%), compared to the higher guideline increases in 2012 (Ontario - 3.1%, British Columbia - 4.3%). Management continues to pursue Above Guideline Increases ("AGI") applications where it believes increases are supported by market conditions above the annual guideline to raise average monthly rents on lease renewals. For 2014, the permitted guideline increase in Ontario and British Columbia have been set at 0.8% and 2.2%, respectively.

Operating Expenses

Overall operating expenses as a percentage of operating revenues increased slightly to 46.8% and 42.6% respectively for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013 compared to 44.1% and 42.3% for last year, as a result of higher operating expenses for 2013 acquisitions, increased repairs and maintenance ("R&M") and in-suite maintenance costs, partially offset by lower wages and hydro costs in 2013 than last year.

Net Operating Income

In the three months ended December 31, 2013, NOI improved by $3.4 million or 5.4%, and the NOI margin decreased to 53.2% from 55.9% for last year. For the year ended December 31, 2013, NOI increased by $35.9 million or 15.1%, and the NOI margin remained stable at 57.4% compared to 57.7% for the same period last year. The slight decrease in NOI margin in 2013 was primarily the result of lower margin acquisitions completed in the last 12 month period partially offset by higher operating revenues.

For the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013, operating revenues for stabilized suites and sites increased 3.6% and 3.2% respectively, while operating expenses increased 11.5% and 3.4%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year. As a result, for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013, stabilized NOI decreased by 2.6% and increased by 3.0%, respectively, compared to the same periods last year.

    Including the amortization of the realized component of the loss on

    Loss ("AOCL"), the effective portfolio weighted average interest rate at
    December 31, 2013 would be 3.94% (December 31, 2012 - 4.05%).

Financial Strength

Management believes CAPREIT's strong balance sheet and liquidity position will enable it to continue to take advantage of acquisition and property capital investment opportunities over the long term.

CAPREIT is achieving its financing goals as demonstrated by the following key indicators:


--  Continues to maintain conservative ratio of total debt to gross book
    value as at December 31, 2013 of 47.32%;

--  Debt service and interest coverage ratios for the year ended December
    31, 2013 improved to 1.54 times and 2.62 times compared to 1.52 times
    and 2.51 times, respectively, for last year;

--  As at December 31, 2013, 93.9% (December 31, 2012 - 92.9%) of CAPREIT's
    mortgage portfolio was insured by the Canada Mortgage and Housing
    Corporation ("CMHC"), excluding the mortgages on CAPREIT's MHC land
    lease sites and the Ireland portfolio, resulting in improved spreads on
    mortgages and overall lower interest costs than conventional mortgages.

--  The effective portfolio weighted average interest rate on mortgages has
    steadily declined to 3.76% as at December 31, 2013 from 3.87% as at
    December 31, 2012, resulting in significant potential interest rate
    savings in future years;

--  Management expects to raise between $600 million and $650 million in
    total mortgage renewals and refinancings in 2013;

--  The weighted average term to maturity of the mortgage portfolio has
    improved from 5.4 years to 6.0 years as at December 31, 2013;

--  As at December 31, 2013, CAPREIT has investment properties with a fair
    value of $271.1 million that are not encumbered by mortgages and secure
    only the Acquisition and Operating Facility;

Property Capital Investment Plan

During the year ended December 31, 2013, CAPREIT made property capital investments (excluding disposed properties, head office assets, tenant improvements and signage) of $157.9 million as compared to $128.3 million last year. For the full 2014 year, CAPREIT expects to complete property capital investments of approximately $165 million to $175 million, including approximately $87 million targeted at acquisitions completed since January 1, 2011 and approximately $22 million in high-efficiency boilers and other energy-saving initiatives.

Property capital investments include suite improvements, common areas and equipment, which generally tend to increase NOI more quickly. CAPREIT continues to invest in energy-saving initiatives, including boilers, energy-efficient lighting systems, and water-saving programs, which permit CAPREIT to mitigate potentially higher increases in utility and R&M costs and significantly improve overall portfolio NOI.

Subsequent Event

On January 31, 2014, the third party external management agreements for the performance of certain asset and property management services concluded. The 16 manufactured home communities in Colorado, Texas, Arizona and Michigan, which were managed by CAPREIT for a third party real estate owner, have been sold. The agreements were entered into on December 5, 2012.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

CAPREIT prepares and releases unaudited quarterly and audited consolidated annual financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS. In this and other earnings releases and investor conference calls, as a complement to results provided in accordance with IFRS, CAPREIT also discloses and discusses certain non-IFRS financial measures, including Net Rental Revenue Run-Rate, NOI, FFO, NFFO and applicable per Unit amounts and payout ratios. These non-IFRS measures are further defined and discussed in the MD&A released on February 28, 2014, which should be read in conjunction with this press release. Since Net Rental Revenue Run-Rate, NOI, FFO and NFFO are not determined by IFRS, they may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other issuers. CAPREIT has presented such non-IFRS measures as Management believes these non-IFRS measures are relevant measures of the ability of CAPREIT to earn and distribute cash returns to Unitholders and to evaluate CAPREIT's performance. A reconciliation of Net Income and such non-IFRS measures including Adjusted Funds From Operations ("AFFO") is included in this press release. These non-IFRS measures should not be construed as alternatives to net income (loss) or cash flow from operating activities determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of CAPREIT's performance.

In addition, certain specific assumptions were made in preparing forward-looking information, including: that the Canadian and Ireland economies will generally experience growth, however, may be adversely impacted by the global economy; that inflation will remain low; that interest rates will remain low in the medium term; that Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation ("CMHC") mortgage insurance will continue to be available and that a sufficient number of lenders will participate in the CMHC-insured mortgage program to ensure competitive rates; that the Canadian capital markets will continue to provide CAPREIT with access to equity and/or debt at reasonable rates; that vacancy rates for CAPREIT properties will be consistent with historical norms; that rental rates will grow at levels similar to the rate of inflation on renewal; that rental rates on turnovers will remain stable; that CAPREIT will effectively manage price pressures relating to its energy usage; and, with respect to CAPREIT's financial outlook regarding capital investments, assumptions respecting projected costs of construction and materials, availability of trades, the cost and availability of financing, CAPREIT's investment priorities, the properties in which investments will be made, the composition of the property portfolio and the projected return on investment in respect of specific capital investments.

Although the forward-looking statements contained in this press release are based on assumptions, Management believes they are reasonable as of the date hereof, there can be no assurance actual results will be consistent with these forward-looking statements; they may prove to be incorrect. Forward-looking statements necessarily involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond CAPREIT's control, that may cause CAPREIT or the industry's actual results, performance, achievements, prospects and opportunities in future periods to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, among other things, risks related to: reporting investment properties at fair value, real property ownership, leasehold interests, co-ownerships, investment restrictions, operating risk, energy costs and hedging, environmental matters, insurance, capital investments, indebtedness, interest rate hedging, foreign operation and currency risks, taxation, harmonization of federal goods and services tax and provincial sales tax, government regulations, controls over financial accounting, legal and regulatory concerns, the nature of units of CAPREIT ("Trust Units") and of CAPREIT's subsidiary, CAPREIT Limited Partnership ("Exchangeable Units") (collectively, the "Units"), unitholder liability, liquidity and price fluctuation of Units, dilution, distributions, participation in CAPREIT's distribution reinvestment plan, potential conflicts of interest, dependence on key personnel, general economic conditions, competition for residents, competition for real property investments, continued growth and risks related to acquisitions. There can be no assurance the expectations of CAPREIT's Management will prove to be correct. These risks and uncertainties are more fully described in regulatory filings, including CAPREIT's Annual Information Form, which can be obtained on SEDAR at www.sedar.com, under CAPREIT's profile, as well as under Risks and Uncertainties section of the MD&A released on February 28, 2014. The information in this press release is based on information available to Management as of February 28, 2014. Subject to applicable law, CAPREIT does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking information.

Using the Software AG Suite, companies can close the gap between business and IT to create digital systems of differentiation that drive front-line agility. We offer four on-ramps to the Digital Enterprise: alignment through collaborative process analysis; transformation through portfolio management; agility through process automation and integration; and visibility through intelligent business operations and big data.
There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
