Modiv Inc. to Seek National Stock Exchange Listing in 2022
The Company also announced an increased NAV per share of $27.29 and recent real estate transactions
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Nov. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Modiv Inc. (the “Company”), a public, non-listed REIT that acquires, owns and manages single-tenant net-lease properties, today announced a number of strategic business updates including its intent to seek a listing on a national stock exchange in early 2022 subject to market conditions, the closing of its current Regulation A crowdfunding offering and its share repurchase program, an updated quarterly Net Asset Value (“NAV”) of its common stock as of September 30, 2021, and multiple recent real estate transactions.
“The real estate markets have seen a tremendous increase in the demand curve given the abundance of investment capital seeking real assets and a plethora of favorable financing opportunities that have driven buying and selling activity, which in turn has compressed cap rates,” said Aaron Halfacre, Modiv’s Chief Executive Officer. “We’ve experienced this firsthand at Modiv, as reflected in the increase to our independent real estate valuations and our numerous favorable real estate transactions, all of which help us in our mission to create long-term value for shareholders as we continue to grow our portfolio.
“Given the strength of the current market environment, as witnessed by the successes of our real estate portfolio and our recent preferred stock offering, our board of directors has approved a plan to close our Regulation A crowdfunding offering later this month and seek a listing on a national stock exchange in early 2022,” Halfacre continued. “As a publicly listed company, Modiv would be able to continue to strengthen our investor audience by introducing new retail and institutional investors to our experienced management team and our diversified portfolio of income-producing, single-tenant net-lease properties.”
Intent to Seek a Listing and Close of Regulation A Offering & SRP
On November 2, 2021, in preparation for a national stock exchange listing event, the Company’s board of directors reviewed and approved management’s recommendation to close the Company’s Regulation A Offering effective November 24, 2021. The Company’s board of directors also reviewed and approved management’s recommendation to terminate our Share Repurchase Program (“SRP”) and we are no longer accepting share repurchase requests. Following these changes, Modiv intends to proceed with a listing of the Company’s Class C common stock on a national stock exchange in early 2022, subject to market conditions. No assurances can be made that the Company will be able to complete a successful listing. The Company intends to maintain its monthly dividend and the ability for investors to reinvest their dividends via Modiv’s Distribution Reinvestment Plan (“DRP”).
On November 4, 2021, the Company’s board of directors approved and established an updated estimated NAV per share of the Company’s common stock of $27.29 as of September 30, 2021. The newly updated NAV represents 18.5% growth from year-end 2020 and 4.8% growth from the prior quarter, demonstrating the ongoing real estate market recovery following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the strong demand for income producing real estate properties.
The Company engaged Cushman & Wakefield to assist the board of directors with determining a fair value range of the Company’s real estate portfolio and a resulting estimated per share NAV. The new estimated per share NAV has been approved by the Company’s board of directors, including its independent directors.
The valuation was based upon the estimated market value of the Company’s assets, less the estimated market value of the Company’s liabilities and intangible assets, divided by the total fully diluted shares outstanding as of September 30, 2021, and was performed per the Company’s Net Asset Value Calculation and Valuation Procedures.
Recent Real Estate Transactions
The following real estate transactions were finalized subsequent to the third quarter.
- Executed two lease renewals including a 12-year renewal with 3M Company for its 410,000-square-foot global distribution hub in DeKalb, IL and a seven-year lease renewal with L3Harris Technologies, Inc. for its 46,000-square-foot R&D/Office facility in Carlsbad, CA.
- Entered into signed agreements to acquire a portfolio of 10 retail properties leased to Walgreens for 15 years for $63.1 million and for a sale and leaseback transaction to acquire an industrial property for $11.5 million with a 20-year lease term. The Company expects to complete these transactions prior to December 31, 2021, subject to satisfaction of customary due diligence conditions. There can be no assurances that these transactions will be completed.
