Canaccord Genuity is pleased to announce that on November 18, 2021, it completed a bought deal financing of Trust Units, raising a total of approximately US$46.5 million (inclusive of the exercise of the over-allotment option) for Flagship Communities REIT (“Flagship” or the “REIT”). The REIT will use the net proceeds from the offering to partially fund the acquisition of three high-quality manufactured housing communities (“MHCs”) comprising 957 lots for an aggregate purchase price of approximately US$56.8 million.
The acquisitions significantly enhance Flagship’s scale, with the REIT’s pro forma portfolio aggregating 63 MHCs comprising 11,328 lots, representing an approximate 37% increase in the number of lots since the REIT’s IPO.

The REIT has been formed to own and operate a portfolio of income-producing manufactured housing communities located in Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, Illinois, Arkansas, and Missouri; including a fleet of manufactured homes for lease to residents of such housing communities.
