  • We intend to elect to be taxed as a REIT for federal income tax purposes commencing with our taxable year ending December 31, 2018. We believe we will be organized and intend to operate in a manner that will allow us to qualify for taxation as a REIT commencing with such taxable year. To qualify as a REIT, we must meet a number of organizational and operational requirements, including requirements related to the nature of our income and assets and the amount of our distributions, among others.
  • We anticipate making regular quarterly distributions to holders of our common shares. U.S. federal income tax law generally requires that a REIT distribute annually at least 90% of its REIT taxable income, without regard to the deduction for dividends paid and excluding net capital gains, and that it pay regular U.S. federal corporate income tax to the extent that it annually distributes less than 100% of its REIT taxable income. We generally intend over time to make quarterly distributions in an amount at least equal to our REIT taxable income.

    Any distributions we make to our shareholders will be at the discretion of our board of trustees and will depend upon, among other things, our actual and anticipated results of operations and liquidity, which will be affected by various factors, including the income from our portfolio, our operating expenses and any other expenditures.
