NorthStar Healthcare Income REIT Amends SRP

Summary

NorthStar Healthcare Limits SRP & Lowers Distribution Rate.

The White Law Group is investigating potential claims involving broker dealers who may have unsuitably recommended NorthStar Healthcare Income REIT to investors.

NorthStar Healthcare Income, a publicly traded real estate investment trust, was launched in February 2013 to acquire, originate and asset manage a diversified portfolio of equity, debt and securities investments in healthcare real estate. The company reportedly raised total gross proceeds of $2 billion, including $217.8 million through its distribution reinvestment plan (DRP).

According to SEC filings on October 12, 2018, the board of directors of NorthStar Healthcare Income approved an amended and restated share repurchase program (SRP), which will become effective on October 29, 2018.

Under the amended SRP, NorthStar Healthcare will only repurchase shares in connection with the death or qualifying disability of a stockholder. In approving the Amended SRP, the Board considered various factors, including NorthStar Healthcare’s “current financial condition, liquidity sources and capital needs,” and believes that limiting repurchases will permit the REIT to “preserve and deploy capital in a way that is better aligned with the long-term interests of its stockholders.”

In December 2017, the company reduced its distribution rate from 6.67 percent to 3.31 percent on its $10.20 final offering price. The original offering price for NorthStar Healthcare was $10.00 per share, and currently the shares have a net asset value of $8.50 each, as of June 30, 2017.
