FITCH CONFIRMS THAT VICEROY REPORT IS NEUTRAL TO NEPI ROCKCASTLE'S RATING


Following S&P Global Ratings' confirmation of NEPI Rockcastle's BBB/Stable/-- rating in response to the
publication of a report on NEPI Rockcastle by Viceroy Research (the "Viceroy Report"), Fitch Ratings
("Fitch") on 4 December 2018 confirmed that it views the allegations in the Viceroy Report as unsubstantiated
and therefore neutral to the Company's BBB/stable rating.

Referencing its 31 October 2018 affirmation of NEPI Rockcastle's ratings, Fitch notes: "Despite rapid growth,
the company has maintained a conservative financial profile with sound liquidity and a high degree of financial
flexibility […]. The Stable Outlook reflects our expectations that NEPI Rockcastle will continue its expansion,
while maintaining its conservative financial profile, by funding through a combination of debt and equity."
