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.

Accordingly, MGP is also pleased to advise the NZX of the allotment of the undermentioned securities and requests these securities be listed and quoted on the New Zealand Stock Exchange.
