A Buying Opportunity in Industrial Real Estate

Avistone LLC, a growing real estate investment firm specializing in capturing opportunities in the multi-tenant industrial market, recently launched its latest offering, Avistone Industrial Parks III, LLC.

Avistone’s previous industrial fund –– Avistone Industrial Fund II, LLC –– delivered a commendable 20.24% Internal Rate of Return (IRR) and 9.15% cash distribution yield over a 3.01-year holding period. *Over the past decade, Avistone has completed full-cycle investments on 24 industrial projects encompassing 4 million square feet, surpassing industry performance benchmarks such as the NCREIF Property Index for Industrial Properties. We believe this strong performance can be attributed to five key factors: acquiring the right property at the right price in the right location during the opportune stage of the market cycle, coupled with highly effective property management.

Identifying the right time in the market cycle: Avistone is re-entering the industrial market, deeming the previous 2 to 3 years as a period when prices skyrocketed to unsustainable levels, rendering it an unfavorable phase for purchasing. Presently, as prices exhibit a decline, we believe the timing is right to aggressively return to the market.

Buying the right property at the right price supports Avistone’s investment objective of providing an 8% preferred return.

Avistone targets properties that can be acquired below their replacement cost. The prevailing high interest rates have compelled numerous property owners burdened by floating-rate loans or impending loan maturities to list their properties at reduced prices. Avistone believes that multi-tenant industrial real estate is now priced in a manner that presents lucrative investment opportunities, fostering potential cash flow and capital appreciation for buyers like our new fund, facilitated by access to reasonably priced debt.

Right locations – We buy multi-tenant industrial properties in select metropolitan areas with healthy economies, diverse economic drivers, and strong job growth.

Avistone strategically invests in regions where such businesses thrive and job opportunities flourish. According to the US Small Business Association, small businesses of 500 employees or fewer make up 99.9% of all U.S. businesses and 99.7% of firms with paid employees. Of the new jobs created between 1995 and 2020, small businesses accounted for 62%—12.7 million compared to 7.9 million by large enterprises.

Top-notch property management: Leveraging years of expertise in managing millions of square feet of multi-tenant industrial properties, Avistone excels in property management within this property sector. Effective property management

significantly influences both cash flow and capital appreciation, as even the finest properties may underperform without meticulous oversight.

Safety of a multi-tenant industrial investment

While no investment is entirely risk-free, Avistone has chosen the multi-tenant industrial property type due to its distinctive attributes that offer investors enticing risk-adjusted returns.

8 risk-mitigating characteristics of Avistone’s approach to multi-tenant industrial real estate include:

  • Targeting properties below replacement cost
  • Diminishing supply of multi-tenant industrial real estate due to high land prices in desirable locations
  • Ability to increase rents as an inflation hedge, bolstering capital appreciation and cash flow
  • Diversification of lease risk, with no single tenant occupying over 30% of the space
  • Growing demand from internet retail operators seeking warehouse space
  • Increased demand for last-mile distribution
  • The surge in demand for warehouse space driven by the 3D printing and robotics revolutions

The content provided herein and through Avistone Communications must be reviewed in conjunction with related private placement memorandums and other offering documents to comprehensively understand the risks associated with the securities to which it pertains. Participation in private placements necessitates substantial and sustained financial commitments, the capacity to withstand a complete loss of the investment, and minimal liquidity requirements. Avistone’s website and Avistone Communications imparts preliminary and generalized insights regarding the Investments, intended solely for initial reference purposes.

Investments in securities or real property involve inherent risks and are exclusively available to accredited investors, as defined in the Securities Act of 1933, who comprehend and willingly assume the elevated risks associated with private investments. These risks encompass, but are not confined to, market fluctuations, credit vulnerabilities, interest rate exposure, and the prospect of partial or total loss of invested capital. Prior to investment, one should: (1) conduct an independent investigation and assessment; (2) meticulously evaluate the investment along with all concomitant fees, expenditures, uncertainties, and risks, including those stipulated in the offering materials; and (3) consult with individual investment, tax, financial, and legal consultants.

All approximated financial and investment benchmarks, inclusive of forecasted internal rate of returns (IRR), yields, multiples, and investment holding period returns, as displayed on Avistone Communications, stand as conjectural projects of performance exclusively, are hypothetical in nature, are not to be regard as actual investment outcomes, and do not present guarantees of future results. Such approximated benchmarks are invariably accompanied by intrinsic risks, encompassing but not restricted to market volatility, operational ambiguities, and limited liquidity, and do not signify or assure the real outcomes of any transaction; and no assertion is made that any transaction will, or is likely to, attain results or profits akin to those depicted. Moreover, additional financial metrics and calculations shown on Avistone Communications (including amounts of principal and interest repaid) have not undergone independent verification or audit and may diverge from the actual financial metrics and calculations realized for any investment. The investment data contained herein is sourced from entities Avistone believes to be reliable, yet no assertions or warranties are made as to the accuracy or comprehensiveness of said information, and no responsibility is accepted for the same.

Avistone’s historical track record showing past performance is no guarantee of future results. The performance of Avistone’s prior projects have not been audited by any third party. Not all investors received precisely the same returns due to differences in their respective commitment dates for individual property offerings. Full-Cycle Track Record average metrics are based on weighted averages that treat investment dollars equally and are calculated after summing the results of all Avistone full-cycle investments, weighted by the respective capitalization amount for each Full Cycle Investment.

Investments in private placements are speculative and involve a significant quantum of risk, and those investors whose financial situation cannot withstand a complete loss of their investment should abstain from investing. Moreover, investors may receive securities with limited liquidity and/or constraints on transferability, subject to specified holding duration prerequisites and/or concerns about liquidity. Investments in private placements inherently entail a high degree of illiquidity, and investors with an inability to retain an investment over the long term (at least 5-7 years) should refrain from investing. Real estate and alternative investments should only constitute a component of a broader investment portfolio.

Private placement investments are not equivalent to bank deposits (and consequently lack FDIC insurance coverage or safeguarding by any other federal government agency), are illiquid, are not endorsed by Avistone or any other entity, and may depreciate in value. Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission nor any federal or state securities commission or regulatory authority has recommended or endorsed any investment, or authenticated the accuracy or exhaustiveness of any information or materials furnished via Avistone Communications. Investors must be financially prepared to absorb the complete loss of their investment.
