“We are grateful to see institutional research analysts take notice of our company so soon after our listing event and we look forward to seeing even more research written about us in the future,” said Aaron Halfacre, Chief Executive Officer. “The quality of both our diversified portfolio and seasoned management team are critical in achieving the operating results necessary to meet stock price expectations of the institutional investment community as well as our over 7,000 existing retail investors.”
“Given that Modiv has been a public filer since 2016, Modiv is unique in its position to be shelf eligible so soon after listing,” continued Mr. Halfacre. “Due to the current strength of our balance sheet and the recent price of our stock, we have no specific plans to issue equity; however, we have filed a registration statement on Form S-3 as a flexible tool to finance future business opportunities. Despite a turbulent marketplace, we are seeing a multitude of interesting investment opportunities within our initial cap rate target range of 6-7% that fit well within our growth plan of accretive acquisitions.”
