SUPPLEMENT NO. 12 DATED DECEMBER 23, 2016
TO THE PROSPECTUS DATED APRIL 21, 2016
This prospectus supplement (Supplement) is part of and should be read in conjunction with the prospectus of Industrial Property Trust Inc., dated April 21, 2016 (the Prospectus), as supplemented by Supplement No. 2, dated July 22, 2016, Supplement No. 4, dated August 16, 2016, Supplement No. 5, dated August 31, 2016, Supplement No. 6, dated September 20, 2016, Supplement No. 8, dated November 3, 2016, Supplement No. 10, dated December 13, 2016, and Supplement No. 11, dated December 19, 2016. Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms used in this Supplement shall have the same meanings as in the Prospectus.
The purpose of this Supplement is as follows:
|A.||to update references throughout the Prospectus regarding the price at which we will issue our primary offering shares and our distribution reinvestment plan shares, and|
|B.||to update the section of the Prospectus titled Plan of Distribution to reflect the determination of our estimated net asset value per share and the new offering prices of our common stock;|
|C.||to provide an update regarding our share redemption program; and|
|D.||to provide an update regarding an increase in the distribution rates authorized by the board of directors for Class A shares and Class T shares.|
A. New Primary Offering Price and Distribution Reinvestment Plan Price per Class A Share and per Class T Share
On December 22, 2016, our board of directors unanimously approved a new offering price of $11.0056 per Class A share of our common stock and a new offering price of $10.3617 per Class T share of our common stock. The new offering prices will take effect with respect to any subscriptions accepted by us after January 1, 2017. We will not accept subscriptions between December 23, 2016 (the date of this Supplement) and January 1, 2017 and any subscriptions accepted after January 1, 2017 will be accepted at the new offering prices. The new offering prices have been rounded to the nearest whole cent elsewhere in this report. As described further in Section C of this Supplement, the new offering prices were determined by our board of directors in connection with its determination of a new estimated net asset value, or NAV, per share of $9.74 as of November 30, 2016. See Section C of this Supplement for a discussion of how the new offering prices were determined.
Pursuant to the terms of our Third Amended and Restated Distribution Reinvestment Plan, or the DRP, the price at which additional shares of the same class may be purchased pursuant to the DRP is equal to the estimated NAV per share of the Class A shares and the Class T shares, respectively, most recently disclosed by us in a public filing with the SEC. Accordingly, distributions declared for the fourth quarter, which are expected to be paid no later than January 15, 2017, will be reinvested at the new estimated NAV of the Companys common stock of $9.74 per share, with respect to both Class A shares and Class T shares.
Accordingly, references to the new prices for our Class A shares and Class T shares pursuant to the primary offering and the DRP, as well as to the estimated NAV per share as of November 30, 2016, hereby update and replace all such references throughout the Prospectus, including, without limitation, the sections of the Prospectus titled Prospectus Summary, Questions and Answers about this Offering, Risk Factors, Estimated Use of Proceeds, Description of Capital Stock and Plan of Distribution.
In addition, the last two sentences of footnote 1 to the table in the Prospectus Summary on page 2 of the Prospectus are superseded and replaced with the following:
Assuming a constant gross offering price or estimated per share value of $10.36 and assuming none of the shares purchased were redeemed or otherwise disposed of or converted prior to the 10% limit being reached, we expect that with respect to a one-time $10,000 investment in Class T shares, approximately $550 in distribution fees will be paid to the Dealer Manager over approximately 5.5 years. For further clarity, if an investor purchased one Class T share, assuming a constant gross offering price or estimated per share value of $10.36, an investor would pay approximately $0.57 in distribution fees to the Dealer Manager over approximately 5.5 years.
These two sentences also supersede and replace the corresponding sentences that appear in the sections of the Prospectus titled Questions and Answers about this Offering, Description of Capital Stock and Plan of Distribution on pages 31, 179 and 241, respectively.
B. Update to the Section of the Prospectus titled Plan of Distribution
1. The following supersedes and replaces the section of the Prospectus titled Plan of Distribution Determination of Offering Price per Class A Share and per Class T Share:
Determination of Offering Price per Class A Share and per Class T Share
Our board of directors determined the offering price for each class of shares of our common stock in its sole discretion and is ultimately and solely responsible for establishing the offering price for shares of our common stock in this offering. The following is a summary of the methodology used by our board of directors in determining the offering price of $11.01 per Class A share and $10.36 per Class T share.
Based on the recommendation from the Valuation Committee as described below, on December 22, 2016, our board of directors unanimously approved an estimated NAV of our common stock of $9.74 per share based on the number of shares issued and outstanding as of November 30, 2016. On December 22, 2016, our board of directors also unanimously approved a new offering price of $11.0056 per Class A share of our common stock, or the Class A Offering Price, and a new offering price of $10.3617 per Class T share of our common stock, or the Class T Offering Price. The new offering prices have been rounded to the nearest whole cent elsewhere in this Prospectus. There have been no material changes between November 30, 2016 and the date of this filing that management that we believe would impact the overall estimated NAV per share.
The estimated NAV per share will assist broker-dealers that have participated in our public offering in meeting their FINRA obligations. The estimated NAV per share was determined in accordance with our valuation policy, utilizing guidelines established by Investment Program Association Practice Guideline 2013-01 Valuation of Publicly Registered, Non-Listed REITs issued April 29, 2013. It is currently anticipated that the estimated NAV per share will next be determined and disclosed no later than December 2017.
The Valuation Committee acted as follows: (i) approved the engagement of a third party valuation firm to assist in the valuation of our assets and liabilities; (ii) oversaw the valuation process and methodologies used to determine the estimated NAV per share; (iii) reviewed the reasonableness of the estimated range of NAVs per share; and (iv) recommended the final proposed estimated NAV per share to our board of directors. The Valuation Committee approved the engagement of Duff & Phelps, LLC, or Duff & Phelps, an independent global valuation advisory and corporate finance consulting firm that specializes in providing real estate valuation services, to provide third party appraisals for each of our real estate properties, and to review various balance sheet items in order to produce a range of estimated NAVs per share of our common stock as of November 30, 2016. The final estimated NAV per share was ultimately and solely the decision of our board of directors. Duff & Phelps scope of work was conducted in conformity with the requirements of the Code of Professional Ethics and Standards of Professional Practice of the Appraisal Institute and each of the appraisals was prepared by Duff & Phelps personnel who are members of the Appraisal Institute and have the Member of Appraisal Institute, or MAI designation. With the approval of the Valuation Committee, we previously engaged and compensated Duff & Phelps to assist us in the valuation of the our real estate and other assets and liabilities in connection with our board of directors determination of the estimated per share NAV of our common stock in August 2015. In addition, affiliates of the Sponsor have engaged and compensated Duff & Phelps to provide third party appraisals of certain properties owned by other entities advised by the Sponsors affiliate. Other than the engagements described herein, Duff & Phelps does not have, and during the past two years Duff & Phelps has not had, any direct interests in any transaction with us, the Sponsor or our or their respective affiliates.
From the start of its engagement through the issuance of its valuation report as of December 21, 2016, or the Valuation Report, Duff & Phelps held discussions with our management, and conducted such appraisals, investigations, research, review and analyses as it deemed necessary. The Valuation Committee, upon its receipt and review of the Valuation Report, concluded that the range of between $9.33 and $10.15 per share for our estimated NAV as determined in the Valuation Report was reasonable, and recommended to our board of directors that it adopt $9.74 per share as the estimated NAV of our common stock, which value is the approximate midpoint of the range determined by Duff & Phelps in its Valuation Report. At a special meeting of our board of directors held on December 22, 2016, our board of directors accepted the recommendation of the Valuation Committee and approved $9.74 per share as the estimated NAV of our common stock as of November 30, 2016, and determined the new Class A Offering Price of $11.01 per share and the new Class T Offering Price of $10.36 per share, to be effective January 1, 2017 with respect to subscriptions accepted by us after January 1, 2017.
In preparing its Valuation Report, Duff & Phelps, among other things:
|||reviewed property level financial and operating information, requested from, or provided by, us;|
|||reviewed and discussed with our senior management the historical and anticipated future financial performance of our properties, including projections prepared by us;|
|||conducted MAI appraisals which contained analyses on each of our real property assets and performed analyses and studies for each property;|
|||performed physical inspections of approximately 21% of our real properties based on total square footage and 24% of our real properties based on total estimated real property values;|
|||researched each market by means of publications and other resources, including local Duff & Phelps market experts, to measure current market conditions, comparable property and lease data, supply and demand factors, growth patterns, and their effect on the subject properties;|
|||reviewed primary terms for each of our mortgage and credit facility liabilities;|
|||reviewed calculations related to value allocations to joint venture interests;|
|||reviewed estimated incentive fee adjustments;|
|||reviewed fully diluted common stock calculations; and|
|||performed such other analyses and studies and considered such other factors as Duff & Phelps considered appropriate.|
As of November 30, 2016, we owned and managed, either directly or through our 20.0% ownership interest in a joint venture partnership, a portfolio of 270 industrial properties comprised of approximately 42.7 million square feet located in 25 markets throughout the U.S. with 483 customers, including expected square footage for eight assets under development but excluding square footage for 12 undeveloped land assets. The portfolio includes: 253 properties for a total of 35.9 million square feet; 12 undeveloped land assets, including one under contract, totaling approximately 167.0 net acres; and five properties under contract, totaling approximately 0.7 million square feet. The properties under contract are properties with respect to which the due diligence period had expired and our deposit was no longer refundable.
Of the total 270 industrial properties, 223 industrial properties totaling approximately 35.6 million square feet were 100.0% owned and managed by us. Our portfolio includes: an operating portfolio of 210 industrial buildings totaling approximately 33.6 million square feet, which were 95.8% occupied (96.0% leased); nine development and value-add properties, one of which is under construction, totaling approximately 1.5 million square feet; and four properties under contract, totaling approximately 0.5 million square feet. The occupied rate reflects the square footage with a paying customer in place. The leased rate includes the occupied square footage and additional square footage with leases in place that have not yet commenced.
The remaining 47 properties were owned through our 20.0% ownership interest in a joint venture partnership and managed by us. The partnership properties include: an operating portfolio of 21 industrial buildings totaling approximately 3.6 million square feet, which were 92.6% occupied (93.7% leased); 13 development and value-add properties, seven of which are under construction, totaling approximately 3.3 million square feet; 12 undeveloped land assets, including one under contract, totaling approximately 167.0 net acres; and one property under contract totaling approximately 0.2 million square feet.
As a result, for purposes of the Valuation Report, our real estate properties were classified into three categories: operating portfolio, development and value-add portfolio, and undeveloped land. Our board of directors considered the following valuation methodologies with respect to each category which were applied by Duff & Phelps and are summarized in its Valuation Report. Properties under contract were valued based on their respective contractual purchase prices.
Valuation of Operating and Development and Value-Add Properties
Duff & Phelps provided appraised values of all of our real estate properties owned and managed as of November 30, 2016 using the income capitalization approach and more specifically utilizing discounted cash flow analyses as the primary methodology. The sales comparison approach was applied as a secondary methodology.
The income capitalization approach is a valuation methodology that provides an estimation of the value of an asset based on market expectations about the cash flows that an asset would generate over its remaining useful life. The income capitalization approach begins with an estimation of the annual cash flows a market participant would expect the subject asset to generate over a discrete projection period. The estimated cash flows for each of the years in the discrete projection period are then converted to their present value equivalent using a market-oriented discount rate appropriate for the risk of achieving the projected cash flows. The present value of the estimated cash flows are then added to the present value equivalent of the residual value of the asset, which is calculated based upon applying a terminal capitalization rate to the projected net operating income of the property at the end of the discrete projection period, to arrive at an estimate of value.
The sales comparison approach is a valuation methodology that provides an estimation of value based on market prices in actual transactions and asking prices for assets. The valuation process is a comparison and correlation between the subject asset and other similar assets. Considerations such as time and condition of sale and terms of agreements are analyzed for comparable assets and are adjusted to arrive at an estimation of the fair value of the subject asset.
The following summarizes the range of terminal capitalization rates and discount rates used to arrive at the estimated market values of our operating and development and value-add properties:
Exit capitalization rate
|5.0% to 8.0%||6.35%|
|5.5% to 8.5%||6.90%|
Valuation of Undeveloped Land
As of November 30, 2016, we owned and managed, either directly or through our 20.0% ownership interest in a joint venture partnership, 12 undeveloped land assets which were valued using the sales comparison approach described above.
Valuation of Cash, Other Assets and Other Liabilities
The fair value of cash and certain other tangible assets and liabilities, estimated as November 30, 2016, each approximated carrying or book value due to the liquid nature of such assets and the short term nature of such liabilities.
We pay distribution fees with respect to Class T shares only. The distribution fees are accrued upon the issuance of Class T shares and are payable monthly in arrears. Based on GAAP, we accrue for: (i) the monthly amount payable as of the balance sheet date; and (ii) the estimated amount of distribution fees to be paid in future periods based on the Class T shares outstanding as of the balance sheet date. We have estimated that approximately $25.4 million of distribution fees were potentially payable in the future with respect to the Class T shares outstanding as of November 30, 2016. However, assuming our hypothetical liquidation as of November 30, 2016 for purposes of calculating the estimated NAV, there would be no such potential future distribution fees payable, as distribution fees are no longer payable upon a liquidation. Accordingly, the estimated NAV and estimated NAV per share do not reflect any amounts related to such future distribution fees.
Valuation of Debt Obligations
As of November 30, 2016, our debt consisted of floating rate corporate debt, and fixed and floating rate mortgage debt, including floating rate mortgage debt incurred through our 20.0% ownership interest in a joint venture partnership.
Floating rate mortgage loans and corporate debt facilities are reflected in the determination of estimated NAV based on GAAP book or carrying values, given that such borrowings can be prepaid by us and are not subject to significant prepayment penalties.
Fixed rate mortgage debt is reflected in the determination of estimated NAV based on the fair value, or mark to market value, of such debt.
|||The estimate of the fair value of our long-term fixed rate debt was determined by comparing the current market interest rate to the contract rate on each such debt instrument and discounting to present value the difference in future payments. The weighted average effective interest rate, or discount rate, assumed for such fixed rate debt was 2.89% per annum compared to a contractual rate of 2.69% per annum;|
|||While we currently intend to retain our fixed-rate debt at least through the dates on which we are able to repay such debt without penalty, the estimate of the fair market value of our fixed-rate debt assumes such debt was theoretically replaced on November 30, 2016, thus resulting in a mark to market positive adjustment of $18.7 million or $0.12 per share;|
|||Duff & Phelps and we believe that the underlying long-term fixed rate debt assumptions used reflect terms currently available to borrowers seeking terms similar to those of our existing long-term fixed rate debt instruments based on similar credit profiles.|
As of November 30, 2016, we had $597.0 million of interest rate swaps in place with a weighted average duration of 4.2 years, to effectively fix certain floating rate financings. The estimate of fair value of our interest rate swaps was determined using the market-standard methodology of netting the discounted future fixed cash receipts or payments and the discounted expected variable cash payments or receipts. The variable cash payments or receipts are based on an expectation of future interest rates derived from observable market interest rate curves. While we currently intend to retain our interest rate swaps through maturity, the estimate of the fair market value of our interest rate swaps assumes such swaps were theoretically terminated on November 30, 2016, thus resulting in a mark to market positive adjustment of $11.1 million or $0.07 per share.
Other Valuation Adjustments
Incentive Fee Adjustments
Duff & Phelps reviewed whether the estimated NAV should be adjusted for estimated incentive payment amounts that might be payable to the Sponsor as the holder of special units in Industrial Property Operating Partnership LP, equal to 15.0% of all distributions of net sales proceeds after our stockholders have received, in the aggregate, cumulative distributions from all sources equal to their capital contributions plus a 6.5% cumulative, non-compounded annual pre-tax rate return thereon. Based on associated
return thresholds, no adjustments were made assuming our hypothetical liquidation as of November 30, 2016, net of estimated costs, expenses, and other fees related to such hypothetical liquidation.
Estimated NAV Methodology and Considerations
The estimated NAV methodology determines our value by estimating the current market value of our assets, including the value of our real estate assets based on third-party appraisals, subtracting the market value of our debt, interest rate and hedge obligations, and adding or subtracting for certain other assets and liabilities, each as described above. In addition, the estimated NAV methodology includes our pro rata share of certain assets and liabilities that we own or have incurred through our 20.0% interest in a joint venture partnership. The resulting amount, which is the estimated NAV of the portfolio as of November 30, 2016, was divided by 152,070,239, the number of shares of our common stock outstanding on that date to determine the estimated NAV per share.
Exclusions from Estimated NAV
The estimated NAV per share approved by the Valuation Committee and our board of directors does not take into consideration certain factors including those described below, which could result in a premium or discount to NAV when determining a hypothetical enterprise value:
|||the size of our portfolio, as some buyers may pay more for the aggregation and management of a large portfolio compared to prices for individual properties;|
|||the characteristics of our working capital, capital structure and other financial considerations for which some buyers may ascribe different values based on term, synergies, cost savings or other attributes;|
|||certain third party transaction costs and expenses that would be paid to realize the enterprise value;|
|||estimated disposition fees payable upon our liquidation;|
|||services being provided by personnel of the Advisor under the advisory agreement and our potential ability to secure the services of a management team on a long-term basis; or|
|||our shares could trade at a premium or discount to NAV if we were to list our shares of common stock on a national securities exchange.|
Estimated Net Asset Value
The table below sets forth the material items included in the calculation of our estimated NAV per share as of November 30, 2016 and June 30, 2015. The final estimated NAV per share is at the approximate mid-point of the estimated range of NAVs per share determined in the Valuation Report:

Shares of common stock outstanding
The original gross purchase price of our real properties, including our pro rata portion of the purchase price with respect to our investments in unconsolidated affiliates, in the aggregate, including post-acquisition capital investments, was approximately $2.7 billion.
While our board of directors believes that the assumptions used in determining the appraised values of our real properties are reasonable, certain changes in these assumptions could impact the calculation of such values.
The table below illustrates the impact on the estimated NAV and the estimated NAV per share if, for example, the exit capitalization rates or discount rates were adjusted by 25 basis points, assuming all other factors remain unchanged, with respect to our real properties.

Limitations of Estimated NAV Per Share and New Offering Prices Per Share
The estimated NAV per share determined by our board of directors and the new offering prices per share described below do not represent the fair value of our assets less liabilities in accordance with GAAP, and such estimated NAV per share and offering prices per share are not a representation, warranty or guarantee that: (i) a stockholder would be able to realize the estimated NAV per share or the respective offering price per share if such stockholder attempts to sell his or her shares; (ii) a stockholder would ultimately realize distributions per share equal to the estimated NAV per share or the respective offering price per share upon our liquidation or sale; (iii) shares of our common stock would trade at the estimated NAV per share or the respective offering price per share on a national securities exchange; (iv) a third party would offer the estimated NAV per share or the respective offering price per share in an arms-length transaction to purchase all or substantially all of our shares of common stock; or (v) the methodologies used to determine the estimated NAV per share would be acceptable to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. In addition, we can make no claim as to whether the estimated NAV per share will or will not satisfy the applicable annual valuation requirements under ERISA and the Code with respect to employee benefit plans subject to ERISA and other retirement plans or accounts subject to Section 4975 of the Code that are investing in our shares.
Further, the estimated NAV per share and the respective offering prices per share were calculated as of a moment in time, and the value of our common shares will fluctuate over time as a result of, among other things, developments related to individual assets, acquisitions of additional assets, the sale of additional shares of our common stock, changes in the real estate and capital markets, sales of assets and the payment of disposition fees and expenses in connection therewith, the distribution of sales proceeds to our stockholders and changes in corporate policies such as our distribution level relative to earnings. As a result, stockholders should not rely on the estimated NAV per share or the respective offering price per share as being an accurate measure of the then-current value of shares of our common stock in making a decision to buy or sell shares of our common stock, including whether to reinvest distributions by participating in our distribution reinvestment plan and whether to request redemption under our share redemption program. Notwithstanding, we are not obligated to redeem shares of our common stock under our share redemption program. Our board of directors may, in its sole discretion, amend, suspend, or terminate the share redemption program at any time if it determines that the funds available to fund the share redemption program are needed for other business or operational purposes or that amendment, suspension, or termination of the share redemption program is in the best interest of our stockholders.
New Offering Prices for Class A Shares and Class T Shares
In connection with the determination of the estimated NAV per share of our common stock, our board of directors also determined new per share offering prices for the two classes of our common stock. The new Class A Offering Price will be $11.01 per share and the new Class T Offering Price will be $10.36 per share. The new Class A Offering Price and the new Class T Offering Price will take effect with respect to subscriptions accepted by us after January 1, 2017. Our board of directors arbitrarily determined the new offering price per share of each class of our common stock by taking the $9.74 estimated NAV per share and adding the per share up-front sales commissions, dealer manager fees and organization and offering expenses estimated to be paid with respect to Class A shares and Class T shares, respectively, such that after the payment of such commissions, fees and expenses, the net proceeds to us will be the same for both Class A shares and Class T shares. Accordingly, as of January 1, 2017, the offering prices with respect to Class A shares and Class T shares will represent the estimated NAV per share of our common stock grossed up by the aggregate per share up-front sales commissions, dealer manager fees and estimated organization and offering expenses to be paid with respect to Class A shares and Class T shares of approximately 11.50% and 6.00%, respectively. The differences between our offering prices and actual value per share will fluctuate depending on the actual value of our assets per share at any given point in time. We will not accept subscriptions between December 23, 2016 and January 1, 2017 and subscriptions accepted after January 1, 2017 will be accepted at the new offering prices.

per Class A
Up to $500,000
$500,001 to $1,000,000
$1,000,001 to $1,500,000
|*||The proceeds per Class A share column does not include organization and offering expenses. Per share amounts have been rounded to the nearest whole cent.|
For example, an investor who invests $600,000 in Class A shares will be entitled to a discounted sales commission of 6.0% on the Class A shares purchased in excess of $500,000, reducing the effective purchase price per Class A share purchased in excess of $500,000 from $11.01 per share to $10.90 per share. Thus, a $600,000 investment would purchase 54,610 Class A shares. As another example, for a subscription amount of $1.5 million in Class A shares, the sales commission for the first $500,000 is 7.0%; the discounted sales commission for the next $500,000 (up to $1.0 million) is 6.0%; and the discounted sales commission for the remaining $500,000 of the subscription amount is 5.0%. Thus, a $1,500,000 investment would purchase 137,680 Class A shares. See Compensation Paid for Sales of Shares above for a description of expense reimbursements and a marketing support fee that may be paid to the Dealer Manager and participating broker dealers.
In addition, in order to encourage purchases of shares of our common stock in excess of $3,000,000, the Dealer Manager may, in its sole discretion, agree with an investor to reduce the dealer manager fee with respect to all Class A shares purchased by the investor to as low as $0.06 per share (0.5% of the primary offering price) and the sales commission with respect to all Class A shares purchased by the investor to as low as $0.06 per share (0.5% of the primary offering price). Assuming a primary offering price of $11.01 per Class A share, if an investor acquired in excess of $3,000,000 of Class A shares, the investor could pay as little as $10.08 per share purchased in excess of $3,000,000. The net proceeds to us would not be affected by such commission and fee reductions.
C. Update Regarding Our Share Redemption Program
As previously announced, we adopted the Second Amended and Restated Share Redemption Program , which we refer to as the Amended SRP, effective as of October 31, 2016. The Amended SRP may continue to provide eligible stockholders with limited, interim liquidity by enabling them to present for redemption all or a portion of their shares of our Class A shares or Class T shares. Subject to the limitations of the Amended SRP and the special pricing applicable to redemptions in connection with the death of a stockholder, stockholders may redeem shares under the Amended SRP at a price equal to or at a discount from the initial purchase price such stockholder paid for the shares being redeemed and the amount of the discount will vary based upon the length of time that such stockholder held the shares subject to redemption, as described in the following table:
|Share Purchase Anniversary||Redemption Price as a
Percentage of Purchase Price
Less than one year
|No Redemption Allowed|
Four years and longer
The share redemption program was amended pursuant to the Amended SRP to further reflect that if we are no longer engaged in a public offering of primary shares, the redemption price will continue to be calculated in accordance with the above table (subject to the limitations and exceptions described in the program); provided, that, if the redemption price calculated in accordance with the terms of the share redemption program would result in a price that is higher than the estimated NAV per share of the Class A shares and the Class T Shares, respectively, most recently disclosed by us in a public filing with the SEC, then the redemption price will be reduced and will be equal to the respective estimated NAV per share most recently disclosed by us in a public filing with the SEC. As previously disclosed, our board of directors has determined to extend the length of our current public offering of primary shares until the earlier of (i) June 30, 2017 or (ii) the date on which we sell all of the shares that remain available for sale pursuant to the offering. Our board of directors retains the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate the sale of primary offering shares earlier or later than the dates set forth above, and if our board of directors exercises that right, then we will notify stockholders by filing a supplement to its prospectus with the SEC. Accordingly, since our public offering of primary shares is ongoing, the redemption price for any shares tendered for redemption during the fourth quarter will not be capped by the estimated NAV per share. Instead, as was the case before the Amended SRP took effect and as long as we are engaged in a public offering of primary shares, if the redemption price calculated
in accordance with the terms of the share redemption program would result in a price that is higher than the then-current public offering price of primary shares of such class of common stock, then the redemption price will be reduced and will be equal to the then-current public offering price of primary shares of such class of common stock.
Our board of directors, in its sole discretion, may determine at any time to modify the Amended SRP to redeem shares at a price that is higher or lower than the price paid for the shares by the redeeming stockholder. In addition, there are limitations on stockholders ability to have their shares of our common stock redeemed pursuant to the Amended SRP, which are described in more detail in the Amended SRP. If our board of directors determines to materially amend, suspend or terminate the Amended SRP, we will provide stockholders with 30 days prior notice. Any notice of the material amendment, suspension or termination of the Amended SRP will be provided by us in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC.
The prices per share of each respective class of shares offered pursuant to the Amended DRP and the redemption price per share that a stockholder will be eligible to receive under the Amended SRP will not represent the fair value of our assets less liabilities in accordance with GAAP, and such prices per share will not serve as a representation, warranty or guarantee that: (i) a stockholder would be able to realize the respective price per share if such stockholder attempted to sell his or her shares; (ii) a stockholder would ultimately realize distributions per share equal to the respective price per share upon our liquidation or sale; (iii) shares of our common stock would trade at the respective price per share on a national securities exchange; or (iv) a third party would offer the respective price per share in an arms-length transaction to purchase all or substantially all of our shares of common stock.
D. Increase in Distribution Rates
