Huffington Post Highlights First 16 Reg A+ Companies

The Huffington Post highlights the first 16 companies approved under SEC Regulation A+, including Generation Income Properties.

“Ever since President Obama signed the JOBS Act in 2012, the market for equity crowdfunding has grown steadily. Now, in 2016, funding raised through crowdfunding is expected to pass that from venture capital.

At the center of this revolution in business financing are the Securities and Exchange Commission’s recently enacted rules known as Regulation A+, a provision of the JOBS Act that allows companies to generally solicit and raise money from non-accredited investors. Historically, many investment opportunities have only been open to the wealthiest 3% of Americans known as accredited investors. However, the new rules permit nearly anyone to invest in companies spanning a wide range of fields, from real estate to aviation and even medical marijuana.”

Generations Income Properties Featured in Restaurant Finance Monitor

David Sobelman was interviewed for Restaurant Finance Monitor, a monthly publication focused primarily on the restaurant investment industry.

“Sobelman is not a stranger to real estate investing. He’s had his own private fund since 2012, and he’s the managing member, with outside investors. It’s been successful, and his investors wanted to know when he would launch the next one.

“They liked their returns, and they liked me running it,” he said. “I thought we needed to do it bigger the next time around.” He talked to his investors about a publicly traded REIT, and they were in.

“They would have their own shares, trade them when they wanted to, and have some sense of liquidity, as opposed to a fund, which is more arduous to exit,” Sobelman said. “They loved it.” Sobelman himself liked the transparency of public traded REIT, where investors and others could go online and look at filings, and that it would be “extremely scalable.”

Net-Leased Pro Aims to Raise Capital for REIT Through Mini-IPO

David Sobelman, Generation Income Properties Founder and CEO, was interviewed by Commercial Real Estate Direct to discuss the launch of the REIT and the unique position it takes in the market.

“David Sobelman, a long-time player in the net-leased real estate business, has launched a REIT. But it’s not like any other REIT, traded or not.

“His Generation Income Properties Inc. takes advantage of Regulation A+, part of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups, or JOBS, Act that was signed into law in 2012. The rule allows investment offerings to be marketed to non-accredited investors in offerings up to $50 million. It also streamlines the registration process by, for instance, not having to register a securities offering in every state that it’s offered.

Generation Income initially aims to raise $20 million through its so-called mini-IPO by selling shares for $5 each through a best-efforts offering, meaning Sobelman will be making his best effort to place shares with investors. In a traditional underwritten stock offering, an investment bank is used as an intermediary and commits to sell a specific number of shares to investors. Shares in the REIT will be traded over the counter.”

Generation Income Properties Goes Public Under Reg A+ for REIT Offering; Shares Available to General Market

Generation Income Properties, Inc., a net lease real estate investment trust (REIT), announced today it has been approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to sell shares to the general public through its Regulation A+ initiative as the next phase in the company’s fundraising strategy.

Generation Income Properties is the first REIT to file with the SEC under Regulation A+, which took effect in June. The company is now accepting investments from investors, including investors committed to become early investors in the newest net lease REIT; the company intends to be listed on the over-the-counter OTCQB marketplace following the close of the offering.

Generation Income Properties intends to invest only in the top 20 highest density U.S. cities, as the company focuses on assembling, what the Company believes, will be the highest quality portfolio of net lease assets. The Company believes its strategies of focusing on the real estate as well as a low leveraged approach to acquiring properties clearly differentiates itself from its colleagues in the same industry as well as other public net lease REITs.

David Sobelman, the company’s founder and CEO, believes the conservative nature of the investments, as well as the cautious underwriting that will be used for each asset, will cause the aggregate value of the portfolio to increase as the REIT continues to grow.

About Generation Income Properties

Generation Income Properties was founded by CEO David Sobelman, a veteran net lease investment real estate broker. Mr. Sobelman is also the co-founder of Calkain Companies, one of the nation’s leading triple net lease investment brokerage firms. Calkain has been involved with more than $11 billion in net lease transactions.

Generation Income Properties purchases assets with future generations in mind. The REIT was established to take the proven and scalable concept of investing in net lease investment properties and applying fundamental real estate underwriting as its core principle. The decision to go public under Regulation A+ is part of the company’s mission to take a lean approach to structuring its business, but under a framework that provides transparency and access to the general public to invest.

Generation Income Properties’ conservative strategy is to acquire assets with credit-worthy, long term tenants with great underlying real estate. The company intends to provide long-term stable yields to its investors, with a focus on real estate that has the best chances of future appreciation either through the value of the assets or growth through lease rental rate increases. The single-tenant, net-leased investments that the company identifies are typically freestanding office, retail, or industrial buildings with existing leases of 10 to 25 years.

Two Ways Crowdfunding Can Boost Your Real Estate Business

Generation Income Properties CEO, David Sobelman, talked with National Association of Realtors to explain the new rule from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that allows companies to sell securities through crowdfunding.

“Right now, when you think of crowdfunding, you might think of tech start-ups using the Internet to bypass Wall Street to reach hundreds or thousands of small investors. The SEC rule that comes out in late January will build on this framework by standardizing the rules of the road. The idea is to increase the transparency of the offering and set limits on how much one individual can invest, among other things. That opens the door to companies that might otherwise balk at crowdfunding to give it a try.”

“We are the first REIT to file under Regulation A+,” said Sobelman. “This allows us to start a public company that is tradable and transparent without as much expense and with more efficiency than other public companies starting out.”
