FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this “Form 10-Q”) contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), which reflect the current views of Belpointe PREP, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (together with its subsidiaries, the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) with respect to, among other things, our future results of operations and financial performance. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by words such as “anticipate,” “approximately,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “outlook,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “seek,” “should,” “will,” and “would” or the negative version of these words or other comparable words or statements that do not relate strictly to historical or factual matters. By their nature, forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, are not statements of historical fact or guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions or changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict or quantify, including those risks described under Item 1A. “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023, a copy of which may be accessed here, and, in particular due to changes with respect to borrowing costs as a result of interest rates and other factors, our ability to raise capital and access debt financing to continue to execute on our investment strategy, inflation, changes in the availability and price of insurance coverage, construction delays, delays in the lease-up and stabilization of our multifamily properties, fluctuations in occupancy rates and market rents as a result of competition, local economic factors and other market conditions beyond our control, changes in landlord-tenant laws in the markets in which we operate and the projected impact of such factors on our business, financial performance and operating results. Our expectations, beliefs and projections are expressed in good faith, and we believe there is a reasonable basis for them. However, there can be no assurance that management’s expectations, beliefs and projections will result or be achieved, and actual results may vary materially from what is expressed in or indicated by the forward-looking statements.

 

We caution you that the risks, uncertainties and other factors referenced above may not contain all of the risks, uncertainties and other factors that are important to you. There may be other factors that cause our actual results to differ materially from any forward-looking statements, including factors discussed in Item 2. “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” of this Form 10-Q, as such factors may be updated from time to time in our periodic filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), which are accessible on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. You should evaluate all forward-looking statements made in this Form 10-Q in the context of these risks and uncertainties. In addition, we cannot assure you that we will realize the results, benefits or developments that we expect or anticipate or, even if substantially realized, that they will result in the consequences or affect us or our business in the way expected. In light of the significant uncertainties inherent in these forward-looking statements, the inclusion of this information should not be regarded as a representation by us or any other person that our plans, strategies and objectives, which we consider to be reasonable, will be achieved. All forward-looking statements in this Form 10-Q apply only as of the date made and are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements included in this Form 10-Q and in other filings we make with the SEC. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements to reflect subsequent events or circumstances, except as required by law.

BELPOINTE PREP, LLC

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

Note 1 – Organization, Business Purpose and Capitalization

 

Organization and Business Purpose

 

Belpointe PREP, LLC (together with its subsidiaries, the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) is focused on identifying, acquiring, developing or redeveloping and managing commercial real estate located within “qualified opportunity zones.” We were formed on January 24, 2020 as a Delaware limited liability company and qualify as a partnership and qualified opportunity fund for U.S. federal income tax purposes.

 

At least 90% of our assets consist of qualified opportunity zone property, and all of our assets are held by, and all of our operations are conducted through, one or more operating companies (each an “Operating Company” and collectively, our “Operating Companies”), either directly or indirectly through their subsidiaries. We are externally managed by Belpointe PREP Manager, LLC (our “Manager”), an affiliate of our sponsor, Belpointe, LLC (our “Sponsor”). Subject to the oversight of our board of directors (our “Board”), our Manager is responsible for managing our affairs on a day-to-day basis and for identifying and making acquisitions and investments on our behalf.

 

Capitalization

 

On May 9, 2023, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) declared effective our registration statement on Form S-11, as amended (File No. 333-271262) (the “Follow-on Registration Statement”), registering the offer and sale of up to $750,000,000 of our Class A units on a continuous “best efforts” basis by any method deemed to be an “at the market” offering pursuant to Rule 415(a)(4) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), including by offers and sales made directly to investors or through one or more agents (our “Follow-on Offering”).

 

In connection with the Follow-on Registration Statement, we entered into a non-exclusive dealer manager agreement with Emerson Equity LLC (the “Dealer Manager”), a registered broker-dealer, for the sale of our Class A units through the Dealer Manager. The Dealer Manager will enter into participating dealer agreements and wholesale agreements with other broker-dealers, referred to as “selling group members,” to authorize those broker-dealers to solicit offers to purchase our Class A units. We will pay our Dealer Manager commissions of up to 0.25%, and the selling group members commissions ranging from 0.25% to 4.50%, of the principal amount of Class A unit sold in the Follow-on Offering. As of March 31, 2024, we have not sold any Class A units in connection with the Follow-on Offering.

 

In addition, the Follow-on Registration Statement constitutes a post-effective amendment to the registration statement on Form S-11, as amended (File No. 333-255424), registering the offer and sale of our ongoing initial public offering of up to $750,000,000 of our Class A units, declared effective by the SEC on September 30, 2021, of which $514,013,330 remained unsold as of March 31, 2024 (our “Primary Offering” and, together with our Follow-on Offering, our “Public Offerings”).

 

The purchase price for Class A units in the Public Offerings will be the lesser of (i) the current net asset value (the “NAV”) of our Class A units, and (ii) the average of the high and low sale prices of our Class A units on the NYSE American (the “NYSE”) during regular trading hours on the last trading day immediately preceding the investment date on which the NYSE was open for trading and trading in our Class A units occurred. Our Manager calculates our NAV within approximately 60 days of the last day of each quarter, and any adjustments take effect as of the first business day following its public announcement. On February 29, 2024, we announced that our NAV as of December 31, 2023 was equal to $100.88 per Class A unit.

 

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the accrual basis of accounting and conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information, and Article 8 of Regulation S-X of the rules and regulations of the SEC.

 

5

 

 

In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation of our financial position, results of operations and cash flows have been included and are of a normal and recurring nature. The consolidated financial statements as of March 31, 2024, and for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, are unaudited and may not include year-end adjustments necessary to make them comparable to audited results. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2023 included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K. The operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of operating results for any other interim period or for the entire year.

 

Basis of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements reflect all of our accounts, including those of our controlled subsidiaries. The portion of members’ capital in controlled subsidiaries that are not attributable, directly or indirectly, to us are presented in noncontrolling interests. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

 

We have evaluated our economic interests in entities to determine if they are deemed to be variable interest entities (“VIEs”) and whether the entities should be consolidated. An entity is a VIE if it has any one of the following characteristics: (i) the entity does not have enough equity at risk to finance its activities without additional subordinated financial support; (ii) the at-risk equity holders, as a group, lack the characteristics of a controlling financial interest; or (iii) the entity is structured with non-substantive voting rights. The distinction between a VIE and other entities is based on the nature and amount of the equity investment and the rights and obligations of the equity investors. Fixed price purchase and renewal options within a lease, as well as certain decision-making rights within a loan or joint-venture agreement, can cause us to consider an entity a VIE. Limited partnerships and other similar entities that operate as a partnership will be considered VIEs unless the limited partners hold substantive kick-out rights or participation rights.

 

Significant judgment is required to determine whether a VIE should be consolidated. We review all agreements and contractual arrangements to determine whether (i) we or another party have any variable interests in an entity, (ii) the entity is considered a VIE, and (iii) which variable interest holder, if any, is the primary beneficiary of the VIE. Determination of the primary beneficiary is based on whether a party (a) has the power to direct the activities that most significantly impact the economic performance of the VIE, and (b) has the obligation to absorb losses or the right to receive benefits of the VIE that could potentially be significant to the VIE.

 

6

 

 

The following table presents the financial data of the consolidated VIEs included in the consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively (amounts in thousands):

 

   March 31, 2024   December 31, 2023 
   (unaudited)     
Assets          
Real estate          
Land  $26,059   $26,059 
Building and improvements   12,953    12,953 
Intangible assets   6,816    6,816 
Real estate under construction   337,489    290,627 
Total real estate   383,317    336,455 
Accumulated depreciation and amortization   (2,307)   (2,161)
Real estate, net   381,010    334,294 
Cash and cash equivalents   7,880    8,204 
Other assets   20,526    7,841 
Total assets  $409,416   $350,339 
           
Liabilities          
Debt, net  $86,922   $19,678 
Due to affiliates   6,368    7,292 
Lease liabilities   24    25 
Accounts payable   21,563    12,374 
Accrued expenses and other liabilities   9,363    8,595 
Total liabilities  $124,240   $47,964 

 

An interest in a VIE requires reconsideration when an event occurs that was not originally contemplated. At each reporting period we will reassess whether there are any events that require us to reconsider our determination of whether an entity is a VIE and whether it should be consolidated.

 

Emerging Growth Company Status

 

We are an “emerging growth company,” as defined in the Jump Start Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (“JOBS Act”). Under Section 107 of the JOBS Act, emerging growth companies are permitted to use an extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act for complying with new or revised accounting standards that have different effective dates for public and private companies. We have elected to use the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act for complying with new or revised accounting standards that have different effective dates for public and private companies until the earlier of the date that we (i) are no longer an emerging growth company, or (ii) affirmatively and irrevocably opt out of the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B). By electing to extend the transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards, our consolidated financial statements may not be comparable to the consolidated financial statements of companies that comply with public company effective dates.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

We evaluate our tangible and identifiable intangible real estate assets for impairment when events such as delays or changes in development, declines in a property’s operating performance, deteriorating market conditions, or environmental or legal concerns bring recoverability of the carrying value of one or more assets into question. When qualitative factors indicate the possibility of impairment, the total undiscounted cash flows of the property, including proceeds from disposition, are compared to the net book value of the property. If the carrying value of the asset exceeds the undiscounted cash flows of the asset, an impairment loss is recorded in earnings to reduce the carrying value of the asset to fair value, calculated as the discounted net cash flows of the property. In circumstances where the highest and best use of a property is the fee simple value of vacant land, we compare book value of the property to the appraised value of the land. If the carrying value of the asset exceeds the appraised value of the land, an impairment loss is recorded to reduce the carrying value to the appraised value.

Restricted Cash

 

Restricted cash consists of amounts required to be reserved pursuant to contractual obligations and lender agreements for debt service. The following table provides a reconciliation of cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash reported within the consolidated balance sheets to the consolidated statements of cash flows (amounts in thousands):

 

   March 31, 2024   December 31, 2023 
   (unaudited)     
Cash and cash equivalents  $29,205   $20,125 
Restricted cash (1)   12,971    3,460 
Total cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash  $42,176   $23,585 

 

 

(1)Restricted cash is included within Other assets on our consolidated balance sheets.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In November 2023, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2023-07, Segment Reporting (Topic 280): Improvements to Reportable Segment Disclosures (“ASU 2023-07”). ASU 2023-07 is effective for public entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, and interim periods in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2024, and requires single reporting entities to comply with the expanded reportable segment disclosures outlined in the ASU. The expanded reportable segment disclosures are intended to enhance certain disclosures surrounding significant segment expenses. We are currently evaluating the impact of the new standard on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In March 2024, the SEC adopted final rules under Release No. 33-11275, The Enhancement and Standardization of Climate-Related Disclosures for Investors (the “Climate Rules”). The Climate Rules require quantitative and qualitative disclosure of certain climate-related information in registration statements and annual reports filed. These disclosures include financial statement footnote disclosure related to the effects of certain severe weather events and other natural conditions. In April 2024, the SEC issued an order staying the Climate Rules pending completion of a judicial review of certain petitions challenging their validity. If the stay is lifted, the effective dates remain unchanged and we remain a smaller reporting company, emerging growth company or non-accelerated filer, the Climate Rules will be effective for our fiscal year ending December 31, 2027. We are currently evaluating the impact of the Climate Rules on our consolidated financial statements.

 

Note 3 – Leases

 

Lessor Accounting

 

We own rental properties which are leased to tenants under operating leases with current expirations ranging from 2024 to 2040, with options to extend or terminate the leases. Revenues from such leases are reported as Rental revenue in our consolidated statements of operations and are comprised of (i) lease components, which includes fixed and variable lease payments, and (ii) non-lease components which includes reimbursements of property level operating expenses. We do not separate non-lease components from the related lease components, as the timing and pattern of transfer are the same, and account for the combined component.

 

Fixed lease revenues represent the base rent that each tenant is required to pay in accordance with the terms of their respective leases reported on a straight-line basis over the non-cancelable term of the lease. Variable lease revenues include payments based on (i) tenant reimbursements, (ii) changes in the index or market-based indices after the inception of the lease, (iii) percentage rents, or (iv) the operating performance of the property. Variable lease revenues are not recognized until the specific events that trigger the variable payments have occurred.

 

The following table summarizes the components of lease revenues (amounts in thousands):

 

   2024   2023 
   Three Months Ended March 31, 
   2024   2023 
   (unaudited)   (unaudited) 
Fixed lease revenues  $241   $266 
Variable lease revenues (1)   124    81 
Lease revenues (2) (3)  $365   $347 

 

 

(1)Includes reimbursements for property taxes, insurance, and common area maintenance services.
(2)Excludes lease intangible amortization of less than $0.1 million and $0.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.
(3)Excludes straight-line rent of $0.1 million and less than $0.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.

 

8

 

 

In certain of our leases, the tenant is obligated to pay the real estate taxes, insurance, and certain other expenses directly to the vendor. These obligations, which have been assumed by the tenants, are not reflected in our consolidated financial statements. To the extent any such tenant defaults on its lease or if it is deemed probable that the tenant will fail to pay for such obligations, a liability for such obligations would be recorded.

 

We assess the collectability of substantially all lease payments due by reviewing a tenant’s payment history or financial condition. Changes to collectability are recognized as a current period adjustment to rental revenue. We have assessed the collectability of all recorded lease revenues as probable as of March 31, 2024.

 

Note 4 – Related Party Arrangements

 

Our Transaction with Lacoff Holding II, LLC

 

On December 29, 2023, we borrowed $4.0 million from Lacoff Holding II LLC, an affiliate of our Chief Executive Officer, pursuant to the terms of a promissory note (the “LH II Loan”). The LH II Loan was due and payable on April 1, 2024 and interest accrued on the LH II Note at an annual rate of 5.26%. The proceeds of the loan were used for general corporate purposes. On February 8, 2024, the LH II Loan, including accrued interest of less than $0.1 million, was repaid in full.

Other Operating Expenses

 

Pursuant to the terms of the management agreement between us, our Operating Companies and our Manager (the “Management Agreement”), we reimburse our Manager, Sponsor and their respective affiliates for actual expenses incurred on our behalf in connection with the selection, acquisition or origination of investments, whether or not we ultimately acquire or originate an investment. We also reimburse our Manager, Sponsor and their respective affiliates for out-of-pocket expenses paid to third parties in connection with providing services to us.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the employee and cost sharing agreement between us, our Operating Companies, our Manager and our Sponsor, we reimburse our Sponsor and our Manager for expenses incurred for our allocable share of the salaries, benefits and overhead of personnel providing services to us. During the three months ended March 31, 2024, and 2023, our Manager and its affiliates, including our Sponsor, incurred operating expenses of $0.7 million and $0.6 million, respectively, on our behalf. The expenses are payable, at the election of the recipient, either in cash, by issuance of our Class A units at the then-current NAV, or through some combination of the foregoing. As of March 31, 2024, all expenses incurred since inception have been paid in cash.

 

Management Fee

 

Subject to the limitations set forth in our Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Operating Agreement (our “Operating Agreement”) and the oversight of our Board, our Manager is responsible for managing our affairs on a day-to-day basis and for the origination, selection, evaluation, structuring, acquisition, financing and development of our commercial real estate properties, real estate-related assets, including but not limited to commercial real estate loans, and debt and equity securities issued by other real estate-related companies, as well as private equity acquisitions and investments, and opportunistic acquisitions of other qualified opportunity funds and qualified opportunity zone businesses.

 

Pursuant to the Management Agreement, we pay our Manager a quarterly management fee in arrears of one-fourth of 0.75%. The management fee is based on our NAV in effect at the end of the quarter. For the three months ended March 31, 2024, and 2023, we incurred management fees of $0.7 million and $0.7 million, respectively, which are included in Property expenses in our consolidated statements of operations.

 

Development Fees and Reimbursements

 

Affiliates of our Sponsor are entitled to receive (i) development fees on each project in an amount that is usual and customary for comparable services rendered to similar projects in the geographic market of the project, and (ii) reimbursements for their expenses, such as employee compensation and other overhead expenses incurred in connection with the project.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, and 2023, we incurred development fees earned during the construction phase of $0.8 million and $0.7 million, respectively. Such development fees are included in Real estate under construction in our consolidated balance sheets. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, $5.5 million and $6.1 million, respectively, remained due and payable to our affiliates for development fees.

 

10

 

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, and 2023, we incurred employee reimbursement expenditures to our affiliates acting as development managers of $0.3 million and $0.4 million, respectively, of which $0.2 million and $0.3 million, respectively, is included in Real estate under construction in our consolidated balance sheets, and $0.1 million and $0.1 million, respectively, is included in General and administrative expenses in our consolidated statements of operations. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, $0.8 million and $1.3 million, respectively, remained due and payable to our affiliates for employee reimbursement expenditures.

 

On April 25, 2023, each of the indirect majority-owned subsidiaries for our Nashville investments entered into development management agreements with certain development entities in which immediate family members of our Chief Executive Officer have a passive indirect minority beneficial ownership interest (collectively, the “Nashville DMAs”). The aggregate development fees payable under the Nashville DMAs are equal to 55% of 4.5% of the development budget or hard costs, as applicable. During the year ended December 31, 2023, we incurred $0.4 million of development fees related to the Nashville DMAs, which were capitalized to Real estate under construction in our consolidated balance sheets, with the remaining development fees payable upon our achieving various milestones throughout the development of our Nashville investments. As of March 31, 2024, $0.4 million in development fees related to the Nashville DMAs remained outstanding and payable.

 

Acquisition Fees

 

We will pay our Manager, Sponsor, or an affiliate of our Manager or Sponsor, an acquisition fee equal to 1.5% of the total value of any acquisition transaction, including any acquisition through merger with another entity (but excluding any transactions in which our Sponsor, or an affiliate of our Manager or Sponsor, would otherwise receive a development fee). We did not incur any acquisition fees during the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023.

 

Insurance

 

Certain immediate family members of our Chief Executive Officer have a passive indirect minority beneficial ownership interest in Belpointe Specialty Insurance, LLC (“Belpointe Specialty Insurance”). Belpointe Specialty Insurance has acted as our broker in connection with the placement of insurance coverage for certain of our properties and operations. Belpointe Specialty Insurance earns brokerage commissions related to the brokerage services that it provides to us, which commissions vary, are based on a percentage of the premiums that we pay and are set by the insurer. We have also engaged Belpointe Specialty Insurance to provide us with contract insurance consulting services related to owner-controlled insurance programs, for which we pay an administration fee.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, we obtained insurance premiums in the aggregate amount of $0.1 million and $0.1 million, respectively, from which Belpointe Specialty Insurance earned commissions and administrative fees of less than $0.1 million and less than $0.1 million, respectively. Insurance premiums are prepaid and are included in Other assets on the consolidated balance sheets.

 

Economic Dependency

 

Under various agreements we have engaged our Manager and its affiliates, including in certain cases our Sponsor, to provide certain services that are essential to the Company, including asset management services, asset acquisition and disposition services, supervision of our Public Offerings and any other offerings we conduct, as well as other administrative responsibilities for the Company, including, without limitation, accounting services and investor relations services. As a result of these relationships, we are dependent upon our Manager and its affiliates, including our Sponsor. In the event that our Manager and its affiliates are unable to provide us with the services we have engaged them to provide, we would be required to find alternative service providers.

Guarantees and Covenants

 

Both the 1991 Main Mezzanine Loan and 1991 Main Construction Loan (together, the “1991 Main Loans”) are secured by our investment in 1991 Main Street, Sarasota, Florida (“1991 Main”). In connection with the 1991 Main Loans, we provided carveout guarantees to the Mezzanine Lender and the Mortgage Lender (together, the “1991 Main Lenders”) pursuant to which we guaranteed the borrowers obligations to the 1991 Main Lenders with respect to certain non-recourse carveout events, such as “bad acts,” environmental conditions, and violations of certain provisions of the loan documents (the “Guarantees”). The Guarantees contain financial covenants requiring that we maintain liquid assets of no less than $20.0 million and a net worth of no less than $130.0 million. As of March 31, 2024, the Company was in compliance with all covenants under the Guarantees.

 

We also provided a customary environmental indemnity agreement to the 1991 Main Lenders pursuant to which we agreed to protect, defend, indemnify, release and hold harmless the 1991 Main Lenders from and against certain environmental liabilities related to 1991 Main.

 

Note 8 – Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between marketplace participants at the measurement date under current market conditions (i.e., the exit price).

 

We categorize our financial instruments, based on the priority of the inputs to the valuation technique, into a three-level fair value hierarchy. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3). If the inputs used to measure the financial instruments fall within different levels of the hierarchy, the categorization is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement of the instrument.

 

Financial assets and liabilities recorded on the consolidated balance sheets are categorized based on the inputs to the valuation techniques as follows:

 

Level 1 – Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2 – Significant other observable inputs (e.g., quoted prices for similar items in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar items in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable such as interest rate and yield curves, and market-corroborated inputs).

 

Level 3 – Valuation generated from model-based techniques that use inputs that are significant and unobservable in the market. These unobservable assumptions reflect estimates of inputs that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. Valuation techniques include use of option pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies or similar techniques, which incorporate management’s own estimates of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the instrument or valuations that require significant management judgment or estimation.

 

Except as described below, we estimated that our other financial assets and liabilities had fair values that approximated their carrying values as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023.

 

Recurring Fair Value Measurements

 

Our interest rate cap is measured at fair value on a recurring basis (see Note 9 – Derivative Instruments for further details on the inputs used). The valuation of our interest rate cap is prepared by an independent third-party and is classified as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy, as the valuation is approximated using market values of similar instruments in active markets.

 

Note 9 – Derivative Instruments

 

In connection with the 1991 Main Construction Loan, we were required to obtain and maintain interest rate protection in the form of an interest rate cap during the term of the loan to effectively limit the impact of increases in the one-month SOFR (the “1991 Main Interest Rate Cap”). We are subject to credit risk by the counterparty of this derivative instrument in the event of non-performance under the derivative contract, however we believe the amount to be minimal.

 

The following table details our derivative financial instrument as of March 31, 2024 (amounts in thousands):

 

Interest Rate Derivative  Notional Amount (1)   Strike   Maturity Date  Fair Value (2) 
1991 Main Interest Rate Cap  $95,494    5.07%  July 2024  $66 

 

 

(1)The notional amount of the 1991 Main Interest Rate Cap increases in accordance with the schedule set forth in the interest rate cap agreement up to a maximum notional amount of $112.5 million.

Note 10 – Members’ Capital

 

Our Operating Agreement generally authorizes our Board to issue an unlimited number of units and options, rights, warrants and appreciation rights relating to such units for consideration or for no consideration and on the terms and conditions as determined by our Board, in its sole discretion, and in most cases without the approval of our members. These additional securities may be used for a variety of purposes, including in future offerings to raise additional capital and acquisitions. Our Operating Agreement currently authorizes the issuance of an unlimited number of Class A units, 100,000 Class B units and one Class M unit.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, we issued 9,304 and zero Class A units, respectively. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, there were 3,631,703 and 3,622,399 Class A units, respectively, 100,000 Class B units and one Class M unit issued and outstanding.

 

Class A units

 

Upon payment in full of any consideration payable with respect to the initial issuance of our Class A units, the holder thereof will not be liable for any additional capital contributions to the Company. Holders of Class A units are not entitled to preemptive, redemption or conversion rights. Holders of our Class A units are entitled to one vote per unit on all matters submitted to a vote of our members. Matters must generally be approved by a majority (or, in the case of the election of directors, by a plurality) of the votes entitled to be cast.

 

Holders of our Class A units share ratably in any distributions we make, subject to any statutory or contractual restrictions on distributions and to any restrictions on distributions imposed by the terms of any preferred units we issue.

 

Upon our dissolution, liquidation or winding up, after payment of all amounts required to be paid to creditors and holders of preferred units, if any, holders of our Class A units are entitled to receive our remaining assets available for distribution.

 

Class B units

 

All of our Class B units are currently held by our Manager and were issued on September 14, 2021. Holders of our Class B units are not entitled to preemptive, redemption or conversion rights. Holders of our Class B units are entitled to one vote per unit on all matters submitted to a vote of our members. Matters must generally be approved by a majority (or, in the case of the election of directors, by a plurality) of the votes entitled to be cast.

 

Holders of our Class B units are entitled to share ratably as a class in 5% of any gains recognized by, or distributed to, the Company or recognized by or distributed from our Operating Companies or any subsidiary or other entity related to the Company, regardless of whether the holders of our Class A units have received a return of their capital. The allocation and distribution rights that the holders of our Class B units are entitled to may not be amended, altered or repealed, and the number of authorized Class B units may not be increased or decreased, without the consent of the holders of our Class B units. In addition, our Manager, or any other holder of our Class B units, will continue to hold the Class B units even if our Manager is no longer our manager.

 

Upon our dissolution, liquidation or winding up, after payment of all amounts required to be paid to creditors and holders of preferred units, if any, holders of Class B units will be entitled to receive any accrual of gains or distributions otherwise distributable pursuant to the terms of the Class B units, regardless of whether the holders of our Class A units have received a return of their capital.

 

Class M unit

 

The Class M unit is currently held by our Manager and was issued on September 14, 2021. The holder of our Class M unit is not entitled to preemptive, redemption or conversion rights. The holder of our Class M unit is entitled to that number of votes equal to the product obtained by multiplying (i) the sum of the aggregate number of outstanding Class A units plus Class B units, by (ii) 10, on matters on which the Class M unit has a vote. Our Manager will continue to hold the Class M unit for so long as it remains our manager.

 

The holder of our Class M unit does not have any right to receive ordinary, special or liquidating distributions.

Preferred units

 

Under our Operating Agreement, our Board may from time to time establish and cause us to issue one or more classes or series of preferred units and set the designations, preferences, rights, powers and duties of such classes or series.

 

Subscriptions Receivable

 

Subscriptions receivable consists of units that have been issued with subscriptions that have not yet settled. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023 there was $0.7 million and zero, respectively, in subscriptions included within Other assets on our consolidated balance sheets that had not yet settled. All of these funds were settled prior to the filing of this report. Subscriptions receivable are carried at cost which approximates fair value.

 

Basic and Diluted Loss Per Class A Unit

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, the basic and diluted weighted-average units outstanding were 3,631,531 and 3,523,449, respectively.

Note 11 – Commitments and Contingencies

 

As of March 31, 2024, we were not subject to any material litigation nor were we aware of any material litigation threatened against us.

 

In connection with the development of our investment at 1000 First Avenue North, St. Petersburg, Florida (“1000 First”) and 1991 Main, we have entered into separate construction management agreements for each asset which contain terms and conditions that are customary for the related scope of work. As of March 31, 2024, we have an aggregate unfunded commitment of $77.3 million under these two development projects. As of March 31, 2024, $26.4 million, inclusive of retainage of $12.0 million, is outstanding and payable in connection with these developments.

 

We are in the process of obtaining a first mortgage construction loan to fund the remaining construction and soft costs associated with the development of 1000 First (the “1000 First Construction Loan”). However, due to our liquidity constraints caused in part by our obligation to maintain Reserves in connection with the 1991 Main Construction Loan and 1991 Main Mezzanine Loan, if we do not finalize the 1000 First Construction Loan prior to May 31, 2024, we will stop or delay construction until we can obtain additional financing.

 

Note 12 – Subsequent Events

 

Management has evaluated subsequent events to determine if events or transactions occurring after the balance sheet date through the date the consolidated financial statements were issued require potential adjustment to or disclosure in the consolidated financial statements and has concluded that, except as set forth below, all such events or transactions that would require recognition or disclosure have been recognized or disclosed.

 

Through the date of this Form 10-Q, we drew down an additional $8.2 million on the 1991 Main Construction Loan.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

In this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this “Form 10-Q”), unless context otherwise requires, references to “we,” “us,” “our” “Belpointe” or the “Company” refer to Belpointe PREP, LLC, its operating companies, Belpointe PREP OC, LLC, and Belpointe PREP TN OC, LLC (each an “Operating Company” and collectively, the “Operating Companies”), and each of the Operating Companies’ subsidiaries, collectively.

 

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our unaudited consolidated financial statements and related notes appearing elsewhere in this Form 10-Q and our audited consolidated financial statements and related notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 (our “Annual Report”) filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on March 29, 2024, a copy of which may be accessed here. As discussed in the section entitled “Forward-Looking Statements,” the following discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, as well as assumptions that, if they never materialize or prove incorrect, could cause our results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, those identified below, and those discussed in the section entitled “Risk Factors” included our Annual Report.

 

Overview

 

We are the only publicly traded qualified opportunity fund listed on a national securities exchange. We are a Delaware limited liability company formed on January 24, 2020. We have been treated as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes since our tax year ended December 31, 2020, and we currently intend to operate in a manner that will allow us to continue to meet the requirements for classification as a partnership. We are focused on identifying, acquiring, developing or redeveloping and managing commercial real estate located within qualified opportunity zones. At least 90% of our assets consist of qualified opportunity zone property. We qualified as a qualified opportunity fund beginning with our taxable year ended December 31, 2020. Because we are a qualified opportunity fund certain of our investors are eligible for favorable capital gains tax treatment on their investments.

 

All of our assets are held by, and all of our operations are conducted through, one or more of our Operating Companies, either directly or indirectly through their subsidiaries. We are externally managed by Belpointe PREP Manager, LLC (our “Manager”), which is an affiliate of our sponsor, Belpointe, LLC (our “Sponsor”).

 

On May 9, 2023, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) declared effective our registration statement on Form S-11, as amended (File No. 333-271262) (the “Follow-on Registration Statement”), registering the offer and sale of up to $750,000,000 of our Class A units on a continuous “best efforts” basis by any method deemed to be an “at the market” offering pursuant to Rule 415(a)(4) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), including by offers and sales made directly to investors or through one or more agents.

 

In connection with the Follow-on Registration Statement, we entered into a non-exclusive dealer manager agreement with Emerson Equity LLC (the “Dealer Manager”), a registered broker-dealer, for the sale of our Class A units through the Dealer Manager. The Dealer Manager will enter into participating dealer agreements and wholesale agreements with other broker-dealers, referred to as “selling group members,” to authorize those broker-dealers to solicit offers to purchase our Class A units. We will pay our Dealer Manager commissions of up to 0.25%, and the selling group members commissions ranging from 0.25% to 4.50%, of the principal amount of Class A unit sold in the Follow-on Offering. As of March 31, 2024, we have not sold any Class A units in connection with the Follow-on Offering.

 

In addition, the Follow-on Registration Statement constitutes a post-effective amendment to the registration statement on Form S-11, as amended (File No. 333-255424), registering the offer and sale of our ongoing initial public offering of up to $750,000,000 of our Class A units, declared effective by the SEC on September 30, 2021, of which $514,013,330 remained unsold as of March 31, 2024 (our “Primary Offering” and, together with our Follow-on Offering, our “Public Offerings”).

 

The purchase price for Class A units in our Public Offerings will be the lesser of (i) the net asset value (“NAV”) of our Class A units, and (ii) the average of the high and low sale prices of our Class A units on the NYSE American (the “NYSE”) during regular trading hours on the last trading day immediately preceding the investment date on which the NYSE was open for trading and trading in our Class A units occurred. Our Manager calculates our NAV within approximately 60 days of the last day of each quarter, and any adjustments take effect as of the first business day following its public announcement. On February 29, 2024, we announced that our NAV as of December 31, 2023 was equal to $100.88 per Class A unit.

Our Business Outlook

 

Market conditions for multifamily and mixed-use rental properties in the geographic markets in which we operate remained strong over the past several quarters. Future economic conditions and the demand for multifamily and mixed-use rental properties in the geographic markets in which we operate are, and the real estate industry in general is, subject to uncertainty as a result of a number of factors, including, among others, construction delays, delays in the lease-up and stabilization of properties, unemployment rates, changes with respect to borrowing costs as a result of interest rates and other factors, inflation, fluctuations in occupancy rates and market rents, financial market volatility, general economic uncertainty, increasing energy costs, supply chain disruptions and labor shortages. The potential effect of these and other factors and the projected impact of these and other events on our business, results of operations and financial performance, presents material uncertainty and risk with respect to our future performance and financial results, including the potential to negatively impact our costs of operations, our financing arrangements, the value of our investments, and the laws, regulations and governmental and regulatory policies applicable to us. As a result, our past performance may not be indicative of future results.

 

Given the evolving nature of certain of these factors, the extent to which they may impact our future performance and financial results will depend on future developments which remain highly uncertain and, as a result, at this time we are unable to estimate the impact that these factors may have on our future financial results. Our Manager continuously reviews our investment and financing strategies for optimization and to reduce our risk in the face of the fluidity of these and other factors.

 

Our Investments

 

As of the date of this Form 10-Q, our investment portfolio consisted of the following multifamily and mixed-use rental properties:

 

1991 Main Street – Sarasota, Florida (also known as “Aster & Links”) – 1991 Main Street (“1991 Main” or “Aster & Links”) is a 5.13-acre site which was acquired for an aggregate purchase price of $20.7 million, inclusive of transaction costs and deferred financing fees. On August 24, 2023, we acquired an adjacent land parcel that was previously subject to a ground lease for a purchase price of $4.9 million, inclusive of transaction costs.

 

1991 Main is being developed as two 10 story buildings with over 900 garage and surface-level parking spaces marketed under the name “Aster & Links.” Aster & Links will feature 424-apartments, including a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments, four-bedroom townhome-style penthouse apartments, and six guest suite apartments, with approximately 51,000 square feet of retail space located on the first level. In May 2023, we announced the signing of a definitive lease agreement with Sprouts Farmers Market (“Sprouts”), one of the fastest growing specialty retailers of fresh, natural and organic food in the United States. Sprouts will occupy approximately 23,000 square feet of retail space at Aster & Links.

 

Aster & Links will include a clubroom, fitness room, center courtyard with heated saltwater pool and roof top amenities including a community room and a private dining area for private events as well as outdoor grills and seating. In addition, each building will have its own leasing office.

 

Aster & Links is situated in downtown Sarasota, at the intersection of Main Street and Links Avenue, and is located in a high foot traffic area next to a number of popular retail establishments. Sarasota’s metro area economy is the largest of the southwest Florida markets and has had very strong gains in jobs, population, and home values over the past year.

 

1991 Main Construction Management Agreement

 

During the year ended December 31, 2022, our indirect wholly-owned subsidiary entered into a construction management agreement for the development of 1991 Main. The construction management agreement contains terms and conditions that are customary for a project of this type and will be subject to a guaranteed maximum price (a “GMP”). We currently anticipate that the funding for construction and soft costs associated with the development will be a minimum of $185.8 million, inclusive of the GMP, and are building to an estimated unlevered yield of greater than 6%. The property is currently under construction, and we expect initial occupancies to occur in the first half of 2024. Construction on both buildings is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.

 

1991 Main Construction Loan

 

On May 12, 2023, our indirect majority-owned subsidiary (the “Mortgage Borrower”) entered into a variable-rate construction loan agreement (the “1991 Main Construction Loan Agreement”) for up to $130.0 million in principal amount (the “1991 Main Construction Loan”) with Bank OZK (the “Mortgage Lender”), which is secured by 1991 Main and which matures on May 12, 2027, subject to a one-year extension option. Advances under the 1991 Main Construction Loan bear interest at a per annum rate equal to the one-month term Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) plus 3.45%, subject to a minimum all-in per annum rate of 8.51%, and may be used to fund the development of 1991 Main. The 1991 Main Construction Loan has an initial maturity date of May 12, 2027 and contains a one-year extension option, subject to certain restrictions. As of March 31, 2024, we have drawn down $50.0 million on the 1991 Main Construction Loan.

1991 Main Interest Rate Cap

 

As required under the terms of the 1991 Main Construction Loan Agreement, the Mortgage Borrower also entered into an interest rate cap agreement, effective July 10, 2023 (“1991 Main Interest Rate Cap”), which, as of March 31, 2024, had a notional amount of approximately $95.5 million a one-month SOFR rate based strike price of 5.07%, and which is due to mature on July 10, 2024. The notional amount of the 1991 Main Interest Rate Cap increases in accordance with the schedule set forth in the interest rate cap agreement up to a maximum notional amount of $112.5 million.

 

1991 Main Mezzanine Loan

 

On January 31, 2024, our indirect majority-owned subsidiary (the “Mezzanine Borrower”) entered into a mezzanine loan agreement, for up to $56.4 million in principal amount (the “1991 Main Mezzanine Loan”) with Southern Realty Trust Holdings, LLC (the “Mezzanine Lender”). The 1991 Main Mezzanine Loan bears interest at a rate of 13.0% per annum and is secured by our investment in 1991 Main. Advances under the 1991 Main Mezzanine Loan may be used to reimburse us for certain costs and expenses incurred in relation to, and to fund the continued development of, 1991 Main.

Revenue

 

Rental Revenue

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2024 as compared to the same period in 2023, rental revenue decreased by $0.2 million. This decrease is primarily due to lower below-market rent intangible amortization as certain intangible liabilities became fully amortized subsequent to March 31, 2023.

 

Expenses

 

Property Expenses

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, property expenses consisted of management fees, property operational expenses, real estate taxes, and utilities and insurance expenses incurred in relation to our property acquisitions. During the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same period in 2023, property expenses increased by $0.2 million. This increase is primarily due to property general and administrative expenses incurred at Aster & Links in the current year period, whereas there was no such expenses in the prior year period.

 

General and Administrative

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, general and administrative expenses primarily consisted of employee cost sharing expenses (pursuant to our management agreement and employee and cost sharing agreement), marketing expenses, legal, audit, tax and accounting fees. During the three months ended March 31, 2024 as compared to the same period in 2023, general and administrative expenses decreased by $0.2 million. This decrease is primarily due to lower legal fees and marketing expenses, partially offset by higher tax professional fees.

 

22

 

 

Interest Expense

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, interest expense was comprised of interest related costs associated with our debt obligations. During the three months ended March 31, 2024 interest expense totaled $0.7 million, due to gross interest expense incurred on our outstanding loan balances of $1.6 million, and the impact of amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs of $0.4 million, partially offset by capitalized interest fees and expenses of $1.3 million. Please see “Note 7– Debt” in our consolidated financial statements in this Form 10-Q for additional information of our debt arrangements.

 

Depreciation and Amortization

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2024 as compared to the same period in 2023, depreciation and amortization decreased by $0.2 million. This decrease is primarily due to lower in-place lease intangible amortization as certain intangible assets became fully amortized subsequent to March 31, 2023.

 

Impairment of Real Estate

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, we recorded impairment charges of $0.6 million in relation to one of our real estate assets located in Nashville, Tennessee, based on our conclusion that the estimated fair market value of the real estate asset was lower than the carrying value, and as a result, we reduced the carrying value to the estimated fair market value.

 

Other income (loss)

 

Interest Income

 

Interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2024, totaled $0.1 million, which was comprised of interest earned from cash balances held in interest bearing bank accounts.

 

Other Expense

 

Other expense for the three months ended March 31, 2024, was comprised of a unrealized loss in connection with the 1991 Main Interest Rate Cap. Please see “Note 9 – Derivative Instruments” in our consolidated financial statements in this Form 10-Q for additional information.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Our primary needs for liquidity and capital resources are to fund our investments, including construction and development costs, pay our Public Offering and operating fees and expenses, pay any distributions that we make to the holders of our units and pay interest on our outstanding indebtedness.

 

Our offering and operating fees and expenses include, among other things, legal, audit and valuation fees and expenses, federal and state filing fees, SEC, FINRA and NYSE filing fees, printing expenses, administrative fees, transfer agent fees, marketing and distribution fees, the management fee that we pay to our Manager, and fees and expenses related to acquiring, financing, appraising, and managing our commercial real estate properties. We do not have office or personnel expenses as we do not have any employees.

 

Where our Manager and its affiliates, including our Sponsor, have funded, and in the future if they continue to fund, our liquidity and capital resource needs by advancing us offering and operating fees and expenses, we reimburse our Manager and its affiliates, including our Sponsor, pursuant to the terms of our management agreement and employee and cost sharing agreement. Fees payable and expenses reimbursable to our Manager and its affiliates, including our Sponsor, may be paid, at the election of the recipient, in cash, by issuance of our Class A Units at the then-current NAV, or through some combination of the foregoing. There were no Public Offering costs incurred by our Manager and its affiliates during the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023. During the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, our Manager and its affiliates, including our Sponsor, incurred operating expenses of $0.7 million and $0.6 million, respectively, on our behalf.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2022, our indirect majority-owned subsidiary entered into a construction management agreement for the development of 1991 Main. For additional details regarding 1991 Main, see “—Our Investments—1991 Main Street Sarasota Florida (Astor & Links).” The construction management agreement contains terms and conditions that are customary for a project of this type and will be subject to guaranteed maximum price. As of March 31, 2024, we had an unfunded capital commitment totaling $51.0 million under the terms of this agreement as well as other construction related commitments for the development of 1991 Main. As of the date of this Form 10-Q, we currently anticipate that the remaining funding for construction and soft costs associated with the development of 1991 Main will be a minimum of $65.3 million (inclusive of the aforementioned unfunded capital commitment).

 

During the year ended December, 31, 2023, our indirect majority-owned subsidiary entered into a variable-rate construction loan agreement for up to $130.0 million in principal amount to fund the development of 1991 Main. Advances under the 1991 Main Construction Loan bear interest at a per annum rate equal to the one-month term SOFR plus 3.45%, subject to a minimum all-in per annum rate of 8.51%.

As of March 31, 2024, we have drawn down $50.0 million on the 1991 Main Construction Loan. For additional details regarding the 1991 Main Construction Loan, see “—Our Investments—1991 Main Street Sarasota Florida (Astor & Links).”

 

23

 

 

On January 31, 2024, our indirect majority-owned subsidiary entered into a mezzanine loan agreement for up to $56.4 million in principal amount. The 1991 Main Mezzanine Loan bears interest at a rate of 13.0% per annum, and is secured by 1991 Main. In connection with the 1991 Main Mezzanine Loan, we are required to maintain an interest reserve and carry reserve for purposes of paying accrued but unpaid interest on the 1991 Main Mezzanine Loan and interest, principal and other obligations under the 1991 Main Construction Loan. As of March 31, 2024, the 1991 Main Mezzanine Loan balance was $41.8 million. Proceeds under the 1991 Main Mezzanine Loan may be used to reimburse the Company for certain costs and expenses incurred in relation to, and to fund the continued development of, 1991 Main. The 1991 Main Mezzanine Loan has an initial maturity date of May 12, 2027 and contains a one-year extension option, subject to certain restrictions. For additional details regarding the 1991 Main Interest Rate Cap and 1991 Main Mezzanine Loan, see “—Our Investments—1991 Main Street Sarasota Florida (Astor & Links).”

 

In April 2023, our indirect majority-owned subsidiary entered into a construction management agreement for the development of 1000 First. For additional details regarding 1000 First, see “—Our Investments—1000 First Avenue North and 900 First Avenue North St. Petersburg, Florida (Viv).” The construction management agreement contains terms and conditions that are customary for a project of this type and will be subject to guaranteed maximum price. As of March 31, 2024, we had an unfunded capital commitment of $26.3 million under the terms of this agreement. We currently anticipate the remaining funding for construction and soft costs associated with the development of 1000 First will be a minimum of approximately $110.5 million (inclusive of the aforementioned unfunded capital commitment), and we are in the process of obtaining a first mortgage construction loan to fund these costs (the “1000 First Construction Loan”). However, due to our liquidity constraints caused in part by our obligation to maintain Reserves in connection with the 1991 Main Construction Loan and 1991 Main Mezzanine Loan, if we do not finalize the 1000 First Construction Loan prior to May 31, 2024, we will stop or delay construction until we can obtain additional financing.

 

We expect to continue to obtain the liquidity and capital resources that we need over the short and long-term from the proceeds of our Public Offerings and any future offerings that we may conduct, from the advancement of reimbursable fees and expenses by our Manager and its affiliates, including our Sponsor, from the proceeds of secured or unsecured financing from banks and other lenders, and from any undistributed cash flow generated from operations. For additional details regarding our Public Offerings, see “—Overview” and “Part II, Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds—Use of Proceeds from Registered Sales of Securities.”

 

Leverage

 

We employ leverage in order to provide more funds available for investment. We believe that careful use of conservatively structured leverage will help us to achieve our diversification goals and potentially enhance the returns on our investments.

 

Our targeted aggregate property-level leverage, excluding any debt at the Company level or on assets under development or redevelopment, after we have acquired a substantial portfolio of stabilized commercial real estate, is between 50-70% of the greater of the cost (before deducting depreciation or other non-cash reserves) or fair market value of our assets. During the period when we are acquiring, developing and redeveloping our investments, we may employ greater leverage on individual assets. An example of property-level leverage is a mortgage loan secured by an individual property or portfolio of properties incurred or assumed in connection with our acquisition of such property or portfolio of properties. An example of debt at the Company level is a line of credit obtained by us or our Operating Companies.

 

Our Manager may from time to time modify our leverage policy in its discretion in light of then-current economic conditions, relative costs of debt and equity capital, market values of our assets, general conditions in the market for debt and equity securities, growth and acquisition opportunities or other factors. There is no limit on the amount we may borrow with respect to any individual property or portfolio.

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

 

Unregistered Sales of Securities

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, we did not sell any equity securities that were not registered under the Securities Act.

 

Use of Proceeds from Registered Sales of Securities

 

On September 30, 2021, the SEC declared effective our registration statement on Form S-11, as amended (File No. 333-255424), registering the offer and sale of our ongoing initial public offering of up to $750,000,000 of our Class A units on a continuous “best efforts” basis at an initial price of $100.88 per Class A unit, of which $514,013,330 remained unsold as of March 31, 2024.

 

On May 9, 2023, the SEC declared effective our registration statement on Form S-11, as amended (File No. 333-271262), registering the offer and sale of up to $750,000,000 of our Class A units on a continuous “best efforts” basis by any method deemed to be an “ at the market” offering pursuant to Rule 415(a)(4) under the Securities Act, including by offers and sales made directly to investors or through one or more agents. In addition, the Follow-on Registration Statement constitutes a post-effective amendment to the registration statement for our Primary Offering.

 

In connection with the Follow-on Registration Statement, we entered into a non-exclusive dealer manager agreement with the Dealer Manager for the sale of our Class A units through the Dealer Manager. The Dealer Manager will enter into participating dealer agreements and wholesale agreements with other broker-dealers, referred to as “selling group members,” to authorize those broker-dealers to solicit offers to purchase our Class A units. We will pay our Dealer Manager commissions of up to 0.25%, and the selling group members commissions ranging from 0.25% to 4.50%, of the principal amount of a Class A unit sold in the Public Offerings. As of March 31, 2024, we have not sold any Class A units in connection with the Follow-on Offering.

 

The purchase price for Class A units in our Public Offerings will be the lesser of (i) the current NAV of our Class A units, and (ii) the average of the high and low sale prices of our Class A units on the NYSE during regular trading hours on the last trading day immediately preceding the investment date on which the NYSE was open for trading and trading in our Class A units occurred. As of December 31, 2023 the assumed NAV of our Class A units was equal to $100.88 per Class A unit. Our Manager will calculate our NAV within approximately 60 days of the last day of each quarter and any adjustments will take effect as of the first business day following its public announcement.

 

We will file a prospectus supplement with the SEC disclosing quarterly determinations of our NAV per Class A unit. Additionally, if a material event occurs in between quarterly updates of NAV that would cause our NAV to change by 10% or more from the most recently disclosed NAV, we will disclose the updated price and the reason for the change in prospectus supplement as promptly as reasonably practicable.

 

From the period of October 7, 2021, the date of the first closing held in connection with our Primary Offering, through December 31, 2023, we issued 2,372,289 Class A units in our Primary Offering, raising net offering proceeds of $233.5 million. During the three months ended months ended March 31, 2024, we issued 9,304 Class A units in connection with our Public Offerings. Together with the gross proceeds raised in prior offerings by our predecessor in interest, Belpointe REIT, Inc., as of March 31, 2024, we have raised aggregate gross offering cash proceeds of $354.3 million.
