Terreno Realty (NYSE:TRNO), a newly organized REIT targeting industrial real estate in six coastal U.S. markets, is expected to float its IPO this week.
Business Overview (from prospectus)
We are an internally managed, newly organized Maryland corporation focused on acquiring industrial real estate located in six major coastal U.S. markets: Los Angeles Area; Northern New Jersey/New York City; San Francisco Bay Area; Seattle Area; Miami Area; and Washington, D.C./Baltimore. We intend to invest in several types of industrial real estate, including warehouse/distribution, flex (including light manufacturing and research and development, or R&D) and trans-shipment. We will target functional buildings in infill locations that may be shared by multiple tenants and that cater to customer demand within the various submarkets in which we operate.
Offering: 10 million shares at $20 per share. Net proceeds of approximately $186.3 million will be used to invest in industrial properties in accordance with the company's investment strategy as described in the prospectus.
Lead Underwriters: Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), KeyBanc Capital
As of the date of this prospectus, we have not commenced any operations and will not commence any operations until we have completed this offering and the concurrent private placement.
We believe the current market for industrial real estate acquisitions to be competitive. We expect to compete for real property investments with pension funds and their advisors, bank and insurance company investment accounts, other public and private real estate investment companies, real estate limited partnerships, owner-users, individuals and other entities engaged in real estate investment activities, some of which have greater financial resources than we do. In addition, we believe the leasing of real estate to be highly competitive. We experience competition for customers from owners and managers of competing properties. As a result, we may have to provide free rental periods, incur charges for tenant improvements or offer other inducements, all of which may have an adverse impact on our results of operations.
