FURTHER DETAILS AND MEETING MATERIALS:
Full details of the Meeting, including matters on which
unitholders will be asked to vote (including certain proposed
amendments to AHIP's LP Agreement), are set out in AHIP's Notice of
Meeting and Information Circular dated May
7, 2021, copies of which are available on the governance
page of AHIP's website at www.ahipreit.com and under AHIP's profile
on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. AHIP is sending meeting material for the
Meeting to registered and beneficial unitholders using the Notice
and Access process, which allows for AHIP to provide unitholders
with electronic access to the Information Circular instead of
sending a paper copy. This means that the Information Circular is
posted online for unitholders to access, rather than being mailed
to unitholders. Notice and Access is more environmentally friendly,
as it helps reduce paper and energy use and also reduces printing
and mailing costs. Registered and beneficial unitholders will,
however, still receive a form of proxy or a voting instruction form
in the mail so they can vote their units. However, unless a
unitholder requests a paper copy, rather than receiving a paper
copy of the Information Circular, a unitholder will receive a
notice that has instructions on how to access and review an
electronic copy of the Information Circular and how to request a
paper copy. The notice also provides instructions on voting the
units using the various different voting methods provided
(internet, telephone, mail). If a unitholder would like to receive
a paper copy of AHIP's Information Circular, please follow the
instructions in the notice.
A copy of the LP Agreement, as proposed to be amended and
restated, along with a blackline to the current LP Agreement, may
be obtained in advance of the Meeting by a unitholder or any other
interested party by contacting the Interim Chief Financial Officer
of AHIP at Suite 800-925 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, British Columbia V6C 3L2, by
telephone at 1-604-630-3134 or by facsimile at 1-604-629-0790, or
by accessing the investor relations page of AHIP's website at:
where such documents have been posted. AHIP looks forward to
welcoming unitholders in person at future annual meetings.
