"We are satisfied with Partners' fourth quarter results, which demonstrate how our property portfolio is well-equipped to withstand the challenges currently facing the Canadian retail real estate environment," stated Jane Domenico, the REIT's CEO. "We remain focused on the improvement of our existing property portfolio, and the results of this focus are visible in the growth of our same property NOI. During 2016, we will seek to accelerate our internal improvement by enhancing our property management, internalizing this function at the majority of our properties. This strategy will be supervised by Paul Harrs, our recently appointed Chief Operating Officer. As a result, I am confident that this year will witness growth in both our NOI and unitholder value."
