LAS VEGAS, Dec. 21, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MVP REIT, Inc., a publicly registered, non-traded hybrid real estate investment trust, announced today that its board of directors has approved a monthly distribution equal to an annualized distribution rate of 6 percent, or $0.045 per share, assuming a purchase price of $9.00 per share. The first distribution will be paid on January 10, 2013 to stockholders of record on the close of business on December 26, 2012.
MVP REIT anticipates paying future distributions monthly in arrears, with a record date on the 24th of each month and distributions paid on the 10th day of the following month (or the next business day if the 10th is not a business day). The initial distributions are expected to be paid from offering proceeds rather than funds from operations and therefore may represent a return of capital.
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.
