EL SEGUNDO, Calif., July 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Griffin Capital Essential Asset REIT II, Inc. (the “REIT”), a publicly registered non-traded REIT, disclosed updated net asset values from the month of June for all of its classes of shares of common stock, in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. These increases align with the REIT’s core objective to consistently add value for shareholders.
As of June 30, 2018, the REIT reported the following:
- Class A (Ticker: ZGEAAX) 1, Class AA (Ticker: ZGEAQX)1, Class AAA (ZGEAPX)1 all reported a net asset value per share of $9.61—an increase of approximately 1.5% since their September 20, 2017 net asset value of $9.47.
- Class I shares (Ticker: ZGEAIX)1 reported a net asset value per share of $9.64—an increase of approximately 1.8% since the September 20, 2017 net asset value of $9.47.
- Class T shares (Ticker: ZGEATX)1 reported a net asset value per share of $9.66—an increase of 2.0% since the September 20, 2017 net asset value of $9.47.
- Class S shares (Ticker: ZGEASX)1 have a net asset value per share of $9.65—an increase of 1.9% since the September 20, 2017 net asset value of $9.47.
- Class D shares (Ticker: ZGEADX)1 reported a net asset value per share of $9.64—an increase of approximately 1.8% since the September 20, 2017 net asset value of $9.47
The steady growth in the NAV was largely attributable to the robust fundamentals inherent in the REIT’s underlying real estate portfolio including a weighted average remaining lease duration of approximately 10 years, fortified by cash flow that is over 82% attributable to tenants with an investment grade credit rating2 and contractual annual rental rate increases of over 2%.
In addition to the share price increases, the REIT has also reported 40+ months of consistent cash distributions3 at an annualized rate of $.55 per share before adjustments for class-specific expenses. The consistent distributions3 from the REIT reflect the solid performance since inception and a testament to the durable nature of the real estate portfolio cash flow. During the first half of 2018, the REIT refinanced $250 million of its floating rate debt with 10-year, fixed rate debt to mitigate any future interest rate volatility. Pursuant to this refinancing the REIT’s debt currently consists of over 97% fixed rate financing, further bolstering the predictability of the REIT’s cash flow.
