Reven Housing REIT, Inc. Announces Offering of 6.0% Series A Cumulative Convertible Redeemable Preferred Stock

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Reven Housing REIT, Inc. (“Reven” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: RVEN) announced today that it intends to offer up to $15 million of its newly authorized 6.0% Series A Cumulative Convertible Redeemable Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred Stock”) to its stockholders who are accredited investors pursuant to Rule 506(c) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).  The closing of the offering of Series A Preferred Stock (the “Offering”) will be conditioned, among other things, on Reven’s acceptance of a minimum of $10 million in subscriptions for the Series A Preferred Stock and is expected to occur (if at all) as promptly as practicable following the closing of Reven’s merger (the “Merger”) with an affiliate of KBS Strategic Opportunity REIT, Inc. (the “Acquirer”) under the previously announced Agreement and Plan of Merger with certain affiliates of the Acquirer (as amended, the “Merger Agreement”). 

The Series A Preferred Stock will have a liquidation preference of $1,000 per share in the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company and will accrue quarterly dividends from the date of issuance at an initial rate of 6.0% of the liquidation preference per annum (equivalent to $60.00 per share per annum). 

Beginning on the second anniversary of the issuance date, the holders of shares of Series A Preferred Stock will have the option to submit their shares of Series A Preferred Stock for redemption by the Company, at a redemption price equal to (i) prior to the third anniversary of the issuance date, $1,000 per share, plus any accrued and unpaid dividends, and (ii) thereafter, $1,120 per share, plus any accrued and unpaid dividends.  Shares of Series A Preferred Stock will not be redeemable at the option of the Company prior to the third anniversary of the issuance date.  Thereafter, the Company will have the option to redeem shares of Series A Preferred Stock, in whole or in part, at a redemption price equal to $1,120 per share, plus any accrued and unpaid dividends.

Shares of the Series A Preferred Stock will be convertible into shares of common stock of the Company at any time on or after the third anniversary date of the issuance date, if, and only if, shares of the Company’s common stock are listed or traded on any national securities exchange.  Shares of Series A Preferred Stock will be convertible into such number of shares of common stock calculated based upon a sum of $1,120 per share, plus any accrued and unpaid dividends, divided by the applicable conversion price.  The initial conversion price for the Series A Preferred Stock will be equal to 110% of the Aggregate Merger Consideration (as defined and finally determined pursuant to the Merger Agreement) paid by the Acquirer in the Merger, divided by the number of shares of common stock issued and outstanding immediately after the Company’s initial public offering.

Shares of Series A Preferred Stock will not have any voting rights other than with respect to the following transactions (which will require the approval of a majority of the then-outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock):  (i) the Company’s loan to value ratio exceeding 70%; (ii) any amendments to the Company’s charter (including by merger, consolidation or transfer of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets) materially and adversely affecting the rights or preferences of the Series A Preferred Stock; (iii) a share exchange affecting the Series A Preferred Stock or a merger or consolidation involving the Company, unless each share of Series A Preferred Stock either remains outstanding without a material and adverse change to its terms and rights or is converted into or exchanged for preferred shares of the surviving entity having terms identical to those of the Series A Preferred Stock; and (iv) the authorization, creation or issuance of additional shares of Series A Preferred Stock or shares of capital stock ranking senior to the Series A Preferred Stock in respect of dividends and distributions of assets upon liquidation, dissolution or winding up.

The Offering will expire at 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time on October 31, 2019, unless extended by the Company.  Only stockholders of record of the Company who are “accredited investors” (as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D under the Securities Act) are eligible to participate in the Offering.  The Company proposes to consummate the Closing on or about November 4, 2019, promptly following the closing of the Merger.  It is expected that, upon the closing of the Merger, the Company’s name will be changed to Pacific Oak Residential Trust, Inc.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to acquire additional residential assets or securities, and for general corporate purposes.

The shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be offered for sale by the Company have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, and until so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
