ING UK Real Estate Income Trust Limited ("IRET" / "the Company"), a Guernsey registered closed-ended investment company, today announces that it has exchanged contracts for the sale of three assets for a total consideration of GBP 11.1 million. Completion on all three assets is due in April.

The three properties comprise a 24,900 sq ft retail property in Alexandra Parade, Glasgow, sold for GBP 2.5 million, a 12,600 sq ft office building near Southwark Bridge, London, sold for GBP 4.6 million and a 19,000 sq ft office in Guilford, sold for GBP 4.0 million.

The sales are part of an ongoing disposal programme by the Company and reflect a 9% discount to their December 2008 valuation. The proceeds will be used to reduce the net debt position.
