Sila Realty Trust, Inc. Announces Estimated per Share Net Asset Value of $8.69

TAMPA, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sila Realty Trust, Inc., or the Company, a public, non-traded real estate investment trust focused on net-leased healthcare and data center properties, announced today that on December 1, 2020, its board of directors, or the Board, unanimously approved an updated estimated net asset value, or NAV, of $8.69 per share for each of the Company’s Class A common stock, Class I common stock, Class T common stock and Class T2 common stock, calculated as of September 30, 2020.

The increase in the aggregate real estate value of the Company’s same-store portfolio, defined as properties owned by the Company as of October 31, 2019, the calculation date of the last estimated per share NAV, combined with the value of recently acquired real estate were partly offset by costs related to the internalization transaction and changes in the fair value of debt and interest rate swaps as a result of a decrease in market interest rates.

Michael Seton, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “The increase in the estimated value of our same-store real estate portfolio, which drove a net increase in the NAV of the Company, signals strength and stability in the total portfolio, while also demonstrating the effectiveness of our proactive response to challenges faced during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. Although pandemic-driven macroeconomic trends, particularly reductions in market interest rates as a result of the Federal Reserve’s support for the economy, impacted our interest rate hedges and borrowings, and an increase in debt incurred in conjunction with completing the internalization transaction contributed to the offset, we anticipate the projected cost savings from the Company’s recently internalized management structure and our experienced administration of the portfolio will continue to drive stockholder value in the future.”

The Board engaged Cushman & Wakefield Western, Inc., or Cushman, an independent third-party valuation firm, to calculate an estimated NAV and an appraised value of 152 of the 153 properties in the Company’s real estate portfolio as of September 30, 2020. In calculating the estimated per share NAV, Cushman also valued one property acquired on September 8, 2020, at its total purchase price. The Board directed its Audit Committee, comprised solely of independent directors, to oversee the valuation process, review Cushman’s valuation analysis and estimates and recommend an estimated per share NAV for each class of common stock. Based on the Audit Committee’s recommendation, the Board unanimously adopted an estimated NAV of $8.69 per share for each of the Company’s Class A common stock, Class I common stock, Class T common stock and Class T2 common stock.

The table below sets forth the reconciliation of the increase in the estimated per share NAV from October 31, 2019, at $8.65 to September 30, 2020, at $8.69:

The various factors considered by the Board in determining the estimated per share NAV of the Company’s shares of Class A common stock, Class I common stock, Class T common stock and Class T2 common stock were based on several assumptions and estimates that may not be accurate or complete. Further, the value of the Company’s shares will fluctuate over time as a result of, among other things, developments related to individual assets and responses to the real estate and capital markets including but not limited to, changes in real estate values as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Specifically, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is risk and uncertainty in commercial real estate values. Although the Company intends to publish an updated estimated per share NAV on an annual basis, the Company may be required to reevaluate the estimated per share NAV sooner if the COVID-19 pandemic has a material adverse impact on the Company, its tenants or its assets.
