Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On June 9, 2021, Reading Property Group, the real property arm  of the Registrant in Australia and New Zealand, entered into a Contract for the Sale and Purchase of Land and, that same day, completed the sale of its Auburn/Redyard shopping centre located at 98-100 Parramatta Road, Auburn, New South Wales, Australia (the “Redyard Shopping Centre”) to CPIF Red Yard Trust, an affiliate of Charter Hall Group (ASX:CHC) (the “Purchaser”) for a purchase price of $69.7 million (A$90.0 million).  The Redyard Shopping Centre comprises approximately 92,000 rentable square foot of improvements located on approximately 11.9 acres of land, and includes a 10-screen Reading Cinema with TITAN LUXE, leased by a cinema affiliate of the Registrant (the “Cinema Lease” and the “Reading Cinemas” respectively).  Carried by the Registrant at a book value of $30.2 million, the sale produced a pre-tax profit, after leasing commissions and costs to sell, of approximately $38.9 million.
