Property-Level Gross Asset Value (GAV) is based on property-level unleveraged values for real estate investments. The reported GAV is based on the “as is” value (including properties in development) per the most recent property appraisal, and includes working capital and other adjustments such as lender and capital reserves and construction costs spent. However, the GAV for debt (senior and subordinate loans) investments is reported as the fair value of the loan, as opposed to the fair value of the underlying collateral (property). The GAV (Pro Rata) at Market is the ownership % interest of the Property-Level GAV.
- Fund’s Share Property-Level GAV: The Fund’s share of GAV is reported at the Fund’s economic interest in the investment, which takes into consideration any applicable preferred returns and/or promoted interests, per the partnership operating agreements (if not wholly owned).
- Fund-level GAV: Fund-Level GAV represents the Fund’s economic interest in real estate investments, cash, cash equivalents, and other Fund assets as defined by National. More information can be provided upon request.
Net Asset Value (NAV): Net assets under management are calculated using the Fund’s Share Property-Level NAV of investments, plus cash and other assets and liabilities. The calculation is explained further below:
- Property-Level NAV for Equity Investments: For equity investments, the Property-Level NAV equals the Property-Level GAV less marked-to-market debt.
- Property-Level NAV for Debt Investments: The NAV for mezzanine and debt (senior and subordinate loans) investments is reported as the fair value of the loan.
- Fund’s Market Value aka Fund’s Share Property-Level NAV: The Fund’s share of NAV is reported at the Fund’s economic interest in the investment, which takes into consideration any applicable preferred returns and/or promoted interests, per the partnership operating agreements (if not wholly owned).
Property-Level Loan-to-Value Ratio (LTV): For equity investments, the LTV reflects the aggregate of the property-level debt divided by the aggregate of the Property-Level GAV as previously defined.
Total includes employees of two distinct affiliates, National and National Development. National currently has 41 employees, and National Development has 15 employees.
National commenced operations on January 1, 2010. National’s core senior management team began working together at National’s predecessor firm, NEBF Real Estate, in 2000. National was the result of a spin-out of an internal division of the NEBF, and all senior management transitioned from NEBF Real Estate to National.
