Key Benefits

The University of Cincinnati has seen steady enrollment growth over the past five years. 

Year-1 EGR shows 0.17% conservative growth over the trailing-12 amount.  

Key Risks

New development in the area is planned to be completed in 2019.  The new facility will contain 1,029 beds.  This will increase competition and may potentially affect rent growth and occupancy for older facilities. 

Upfront reserves and expected ongoing reserves may not be enough to cover expected expenses based on amount given in the property condition report. 

Cap rate is being adjusted.  Sponsor has removed Tax/Insurance fees from year-1 operating expenses and placed them into the upfront costs.  By lowering the  operating expenses and increasing net operating income the sponsor has increased their cap rate, however when placed back into operating expenses these fees lower the cap rate to 5.05% instead of 6.61%. 

According to the pro forma the property is expected to have cash flow shortfalls in years 4-8.  Master tenant income is sufficient to cover this, however should the property miss projected rent revenue the investment may struggle to pay stated distributions in these years.
