Each of the companies intends to distribute shares principally through registered investment advisors and broker/dealers that charge their clients a fee for their services.
The common shares of each company are expected to be offered on a continuous basis and for an indefinite period of time, subject to regulatory approvals, with an initial offering for each company of up to $3.5 billion.
After an initial escrow period, the purchase price for each company’s stock will vary from day to day and, on any given day, will be equal to that company’s net asset value, or NAV, divided by the number of common shares outstanding for that company, as of the end of business on each day (NAV per share).
The calculation of each company’s NAV will be based principally on the market value of the company’s real estate portfolio, as determined by an independent valuation expert. The offerings are not contingent on each other.
Cole Capital Corp., an affiliate of the sponsor, will be the dealer manager of each offering and will offer the shares of each company on a best efforts basis.
