On March 6, 2019, Hartman vREIT XXI, Inc. (vREIT XXI) announced that on January 29, 2019, the Board of Directors (Board) for vREIT XXI agreed to make several changes (and consider others) to the program, as detailed below.
The Board agreed to the following:
- changing the initial offering price (currently $10 per class A share and $9.60 per class T share, without application of any discounts) to the net asset value (NAV) per share as to be determined by the Board as of December 31, 2018;
- amending the share redemption program to allow redemptions at NAV for shares held for three years or more and removing the graduated redemption price discount (relative to the initial offering price of $10 per share) for redemptions for shares held between one and five years; and
- changing the distribution allocation between cash and stock for class A shares and class T shares.
“We believe these changes will make the program more attractive by increasing liquidity and transparency while mitigating the effects of dilution to existing investors,” said Al Hartman, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman.
The changes to the purchase price and the redemption price to the NAV per share will occur no later than 30 days after the Board determines the new estimated NAV per share as of 12/31/2018. The changes to the holding period and graduated redemption price discount will be effective when the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) declares the amended registration statement effective. The amended registration statement will be filed with the SEC during the first quarter of 2019.
The Board agreed to honor sales of Class A shares at $10.00 and Class T shares at $9.60 for all sales made no later than 30 days after the board determines the NAV per share as of 12/31/2018. All sales made after 30 days of the board’s determination of the NAV as of 12/31/2018 will be made at the NAV as of December 31, 2018, pending the SEC declaring the amended registration statement effective.
The Board also voted to change the distribution allocation between cash and stock. Beginning with the distributions to be paid in February 2019, the annualized distribution rate of 7.5% will remain unchanged, but will consist of 6.0% in cash (previously 5.5%) and 1.5% in stock (previously 2%) for Class A shares. The annualized distribution rate of 6.5% for Class T shares will remain unchanged, but will consist of 5.0% in cash (previously 4.5%) and 1.5% in stock (previously 2%).
Important Note about the Redemption Plan. Redemptions of shares of our common stock, when requested, are at our sole discretion and generally will be made quarterly. We will limit the number of shares redeemed during any calendar year to 10% of the number of shares of our common stock outstanding on December 31 of the previous calendar year. In addition, we are only authorized to redeem shares using proceeds from our distribution reinvestment plan plus 1% of the operating cash flow from the previous fiscal year (to the extent positive) and any additional operating funds, if any, as our Board in its sole discretion may reserve for this purpose. Due to these limitations, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all redemption requests.
