"Tax-deferred exchanges provide diversification and liquidity."
Tax Deferred Exit Strategies
Due to our structure as an umbrella partnership REIT, or UPREIT, a portion of our business is conducted through our operating partnership subsidiary. An owner may be able to contribute a single-tenant property to our operating partnership subsidiary in exchange for limited partner interests, or OP units, without causing a taxable event.
Property for OP unit exchanges are preferable to direct ownership for many reasons, including diversification and liquidity. The OP units are typically entitled to a distribution equal to our common share dividend and are generally redeemable for our common shares (tax would be recognized at the time of redemption).
