DIVERSIFIED PORTFOLIO ADDS TO NORTH AMERICAN RAIL OPERATIONS OF ITE

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, December 1, 2021 – ITE Management L.P. (“ITE”) has purchased North American railcar and related assets of C.K. Industries. This acquisition directly benefits the breadth and flexibility of ITE’s and American Industrial Transport, Inc.’s (“AITX”) railcar holdings.

With over 40 years’ leasing operations, C.K. Industries is an established and proven provider of railcar solutions. Servicing mid-to-long term railcar lease packages, its highly productive, well-maintained leasing fleet offers full-service and net leases which directly complements ITE’s existing strategy. C.K. Industries is a private company with leasing affiliates in Europe and North America. ITE acquired the assets in partnership with RESIDCO.

The addition of C.K. Industries marks the second corporate acquisition this year for ITE Management that continues to opportunistically diversify and strengthen its owned and operated railcar operations. In August 2021, in partnership with its owned-affiliate AITX, ITE acquired over 20,000 railcars from The Andersons, Inc.

The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
