LAS VEGAS, Oct. 3, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MVP REIT, Inc. today confirmed that its board of directors has approved a plan for payment of initial monthly cash distributions of $0.045 per share, subject to breaking escrow after receiving minimum gross proceeds from stock sales of $3 million. The initial distributions are expected to be paid from offering proceeds rather than funds from operations and therefore may represent a return of capital.
"MVP REIT's long term strategy is to fund the payment of monthly distributions entirely from its funds from operations," said Mike Shustek, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of MVP REIT, as well as principal of MVP REIT's advisor, MVP Realty Advisor, LLC.
The initial distribution rate will be reviewed in January 2013, or sooner if circumstances warrant. The initial monthly distribution amount represents an annualized distribution rate of $0.54 per common share or 6% based on a purchase price of $9.00 per common share. However, no assurance can be given that distributions will continue to be paid at this rate. The board of directors may at any time change the distribution rate or suspend payment of distributions if it determines that such action is in the best interest of MVP REIT and its shareholders. Approved monthly distributions are expected to be paid by the 10th of each month to shareholders of record at the end of the preceding month.
