RW Holdings NNN REIT Buys Online Investment Platform with Two Reg A+ Offerings

RW Holdings NNN REIT Inc., a publicly registered non-traded real estate investment trust formerly known as Rich Uncles NNN REIT Inc., has completed the acquisition of the REITless Investment Platform, an online platform for commercial real estate investment offerings.

In a letter to shareholders, RW Holdings said that the acquisition of REITless will allow it to add new investment choices to its platform, with all the management fee revenue from those products going to the REIT.

“NNN investors are able to not only benefit from rental income and investment management revenue, but also any future increases in our [net asset value] as we pursue an industry consolidation strategy to create future growth,” the REIT added. “We anticipate similar strategic announcements in the future.”

REITless currently has two qualified Regulation A+ offerings for individual investors, including The REITless Income Strategies LLC and the REITless Opportunity Zone Strategies LLC. The platform was founded by North Capital, a provider of transaction technology and brokerage services for private offerings.

“We believe we are now entering a phase where we will see significant consolidation as industry participants reach maturity in terms of their growth capacity and the limits of their balance sheets,” said Aaron Halfacre, chief executive officer of RW Holdings NNN REIT. “We believe we are uniquely qualified to be a consolidator of the non-listed real estate product industry, given the combination of our deep understanding of both the crowdfunding and real estate markets and the strength of our shareholder-owned, self-managed business model.”

NNN intends to update the REITless funds in early 2021.

RW Holdings NNN REIT was formed in 2015 to primarily invest in single-tenant income-producing properties located in the United States. As of June 30, 2020, the REIT’s real estate investment portfolio consisted of 45 operating properties, a 72.7 percent tenant-in-common interest in an office property and one parcel of land. RW Holdings NNN REIT has raised $193.8 million in investor equity as of June 30, 2020.

Black Creek Diversified Declares Flat Net Asset Value Per Share for August

Black Creek Diversified Property Fund Inc., a publicly registered NAV-based perpetual life REIT formerly known as Dividend Capital Diversified Property Fund, has updated the monthly per share net asset values for its Class T, Class S, Class D, Class I, and Class E common stock, as of August 31, 2020.

As of August 31, 2020, the REIT valued all of its shares, as well as its OP units, at $7.5097

each, representing a slight increase over last month’s estimated NAV per share of $7.5062.

The NAV per share is based on the estimated value of the company’s assets, less the estimated value of its liabilities divided by the number of outstanding shares, all as of August 31, 2020. Altus Group U.S. Inc., a third-party firm, assisted with the valuation process.

Black Creek Diversified Property Fund provided a COVID-related update on its property portfolio, which is currently 92.3 percent leased with a weighted average lease term of five years.

The REIT has collected 95.5 percent of August rent to date, one of its higher monthly collection percentages since the onset of the pandemic, the company said.

“While we chose to execute short-term rent deferral agreements in the second quarter of 2020 with certain of our otherwise successful tenants, the need for additional rent deferrals has declined considerably since the onset of COVID-19,” the company noted in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The company’s acquisition strategy is currently focused on industrial and multifamily properties, and last month it acquired a newly constructed, Class A industrial building located in the San Francisco Bay Area for $48.5 million.

“Given an uptick in e-commerce demand since COVID-19 began and the strong performance that we continue to see within the industrial sector, we remain committed to increasing our industrial allocation which has increased from 11 percent as of December 31, 2019 to 16.1 percent as of August 31, 2020,” the company said.

As of June 30, 2020, Black Creek Diversified Property Fund owned a portfolio comprised of 52 properties totaling approximately 10.1 million square feet located in 22 markets throughout the United States valued in excess of $2 billion.
