Orlando, FL (PRWEB) July 23, 2013
The Board of Directors of CNL Growth Properties Inc., a non-traded real estate investment trust strategically designed with growth in mind, has established the public offering price per share for its upcoming second offering of common stock at $10.84. This price represents an 8.4 percent increase over the $10 price of its initial public offering that closed on April 7, 2013. CNL Growth Properties is not currently offering shares of its common stock, but expects to commence its second public offering in the third quarter.
To establish the new public offering price, CNL Growth Properties, acting under the direction of the Valuation Committee of its Board of Directors, engaged CBRE Capital Advisors to assist in establishing a range of net asset values for the company. The Board of Directors determined the valuation using traditional appraisal methods, management guidance, third-party research, and proprietary research including market and sector cap rate surveys. The Company followed the guidelines of the Investment Program Association (IPA), a trade association for non-listed investment vehicles, which were issued in April 2013 to promote best practices and consistency of valuation techniques among non-traded REITs.
“We are very pleased with the results of the valuation done by CBRE Capital Advisors and it confirms the strength of our investment portfolio in multifamily housing,” said Andy Hyltin, president and CEO of CNL Growth Properties. “The increase in our offering price reflects the work of CNL associates and our partners as we prepare for a second offering.” *
The Company intends to maintain its current annualized stock distribution of 8 percent per share, which is payable to all common stockholders of record as of the close of business on the first day of each month.
CNL Growth Properties is advised by CNL Global Growth Advisors, LLC, which is an affiliate of the company’s sponsor, CNL Financial Group.
