Slate Properties said it believes secondary U.S. markets are larger than primary Canadian markets. By way of example, the firm cited the 50th most populous metropolitan statistical area in the U.S. is Birmingham-Hoover, AL (1.13 million), roughly equal to Edmonton, Alberta (1.16 million) which is the 6th largest census metropolitan area in Canada. Toronto would rank 8th in the U.S. by population. Slate will look to acquire property priced from $2 million to $30 million (including the impact of leverage). Each such transaction would be expected to require approximately $1 million to $10 million of equity investment.
