Los Angeles, CA (October 16 2017)
- KB Exchange Trust, an affiliate of Kingsbarn Realty Capital, acquired 14 properties located in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Texas, Missouri, and California. The aggregate purchase price for the 14 properties, which were acquired in a four-month span between April and August, totaled over $65.9 million.
Nine of these properties are newly-constructed dialysis clinics leased to Fresenius Medical Care. In addition, three hold newly-extended leases to Fresenius Medical Care; one property is leased to DaVita; and one is leased to Walgreens. KB Exchange Trust has quickly broadened their portfolio to meet strong demand from accredited investors.
KB Exchange Trust structures their commercial real estate offerings as Delaware Statutory Trusts (DSTs). A DST is a separate legal entity which qualifies under Section 1031 as a tax-deferred exchange. This secured-investment structure allows investors fractional ownership to help diversify their investment portfolios and acquire higher-quality properties.
“We had a busy summer with many acquisitions, mostly for our medical DST program,” stated KB Exchange Trust managing partner Jeff Pori. “We saw early in the year that the pipeline for third and fourth quarter deliveries was substantially less than the second quarter. We decided to load up on inventory early so that we would have enough DST product to provide through the end of 2017.”
Over the past four years, KB has acquired 30 healthcare-related properties leased to investment-grade, publicly-traded tenants for its various 1031-exchange-related programs.
These investment-grade tenants include Fresenius Medical Care, DaVita, and Walgreens. Fresenius Medical Care the world’s largest provider of dialysis services for chronic kidney diseases and is publicly-traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: FMS). DaVita Healthcare Partners, Inc. (“DaVita”) (NYSE: DVA), a Fortune 500® company, is a leading provider of kidney care in the United States. Walgreens is the largest drugstore chain in the United States, with over 8,200 drugstores in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
