PHOENIX, April 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors (the "Board") of Cole Office & Industrial REIT (CCIT II), Inc. ("CCIT II" or the "Company"), a publicly registered non-listed real estate investment trust ("REIT") focused on investing in single-tenant, income-producing necessity office and industrial properties, today announced an estimated per share net asset value ("NAV") of its common stock of $10.00 as of February 29, 2016 and the timing for the close of its primary offering on July 29, 2016.
"We are pleased with the performance of CCIT II and the strength of its office and industrial portfolio," said Bill Miller, Chief Executive Officer and President of Cole Capital. "We will continue our efforts to maximize the value of the portfolio through active management, while at the same time embracing the industry's evolution to meet the needs of shareholders and advisors."
In anticipation of the implementation of the new customer account statement rules (FINRA Regulatory Notice 15-02) that went into effect today, the Company engaged Cushman & Wakefield of Illinois, Inc., Valuation & Advisory group ("Cushman & Wakefield"), to assist the Board with determining the estimated per share NAV and a fair value range of CCIT II's real estate portfolio. Using the NAV methodology, Cushman & Wakefield arrived at a valuation range of $9.08 to $10.69 per share. The estimated per share NAV was determined and approved by the Board based on the recommendation of its valuation committee, which is comprised solely of independent directors, including the independent Chairman of the Board.
The valuation was based upon the estimated market value of CCIT II's assets, less the estimated market value of the Company's liabilities, divided by the total shares outstanding, and was performed in accordance with the valuation guidelines established by the Investment Program Association Practice Guideline 2013-01, Valuations of Publicly Registered Non-Listed REITs. The estimated NAV does not reflect any "portfolio premium," nor does it reflect an enterprise value for the Company. This is the first estimated NAV valuation that the Company has conducted. The Board intends to determine an estimated per share NAV on at least an annual basis going forward.
The Board has approved the close of the Company's primary offering on July 29, 2016. In connection with the closing, the Company's policy will be to accept subscription agreements only if they are received by the Company's transfer agent on or before the close of business on July 29, 2016 and fully funded and in good order no later than the close of business on August 31, 2016. CCIT II intends to continue to sell shares of its common stock in the offering pursuant to its distribution reinvestment plan following the termination of its public offering.
To date, CCIT II has paid 26 consecutive monthly distributions to its shareholders, with a current distribution rate equal to an annualized amount of $0.63 per share. The distribution amount per share declared by the Board is not affected by the determination of the NAV.
