November 6, 2020 (Houston)—Hartman Short Term Income Properties XX, Inc. (“Hartman XX”) and Hartman vREIT XXI, Inc. (“vREIT XXI”) announced today that the Boards of the respective companies have affirmatively voted to merge Hartman XX into and with vREIT XXI, with vREIT XXI as the surviving company. Previously the Boards had established special committees to consider the potential merger and after deliberation, determined that a merger would be to the benefit of the shareholders of both parties.
Al Hartman, CEO of both companies said today, “The merger of these two publicly registered non-traded REITs will create a significantly larger base of assets and synergies that will increase shareholder value for both companies and move all of the Hartman publicly registered programs to a perpetual REIT model, where shareholders can redeem their shares at NAV and also allow us to offer multiple options and share classes for new investors. We are excited with this merger as it positions Hartman for the next decade.”
The parties anticipate a stock-for-stock consideration, but terms of the merger are still in negotiations between the parties but are expected to be reached in the next few months as new NAV’s are calculated for the companies. An S-4 proxy and registration statement will be filed with the SEC and a shareholder vote is tentatively scheduled for the last part of the second quarter or third quarter, 2021, depending on federal and state regulatory approvals.
Hartman has extensive experience acquiring, owning, managing, and leasing commercial office, retail, light industrial and warehouse properties located in Texas. Since 1983, Hartman and its affiliated entities have sponsored 23 programs and acquired interests in more than 100 real property assets totaling approximately $800 million as of December 31, 2019.
