Settlement of Acquisition & Allotment of Units

Settlement of Acquisition & Allotment of Units

31 March 2006

Macquarie Goodman Property Trust ("MGP") is pleased to announce that the $318.2 million acquisition ("Acquisition") of certain interests in properties, currently held by ASX-listed Macquarie Goodman Group ("MGQ") and its subsidiaries, has been settled. The Acquisition was approved by MGP's Unitholders at a meeting held on 22 March 2006

Details of the properties being purchased are outlined in the Explanatory Memorandum ("EM") dated 7 March 2006. An Institutional Placement raising $112.7 million partly funded the acquisition.

The consideration paid by MGP to settle the transaction with MGQ was $161.1 million in cash and $48.3 million in MGP units. A further $108.8 million will be paid by MGP to meet deferred settlement obligations and complete developments, as explained in the EM.

The EM contemplated an initial cash payment of $161.4 million, $48.3 million in MGP units and later payments totaling $108.5 million. Final calculations resulted in the initial payment falling by $0.3 million and therefore later payments increasing by the same amount.
