Urban Infill Developer, StoryBuilt, Announces Final $2.5 Million Investment Opportunity in Class A2 Preferred Shares for Growth

January 9, 2020 GMT

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 9, 2020--

StoryBuilt, an urban infill real estate firm specializing in development in high-growth cities across the United States, announced today that only $2.5 million remains available in the company’s previously released $25 million issuance of Class A2 Preferred Shares. This investment opportunity is available to verified accredited investors pursuant to Rule 506(c) of Regulation D promulgated by the SEC under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. 

“We have seen significant and continued market demand in our real estate developments in targeted high-growth cities and invite the public to be a part of our growth story,” said Anthony Siela, founding member of StoryBuilt.

Strong, steadfast growth of StoryBuilt and its expanding portfolio of assets is evident in its robust three year look-back on revenue: 2016 at $40 million, 2017 at $71 million, and 2018 at $113 million; with Class A2 fueling continuous growth in 2019. With its first real estate investment in 2001, StoryBuilt now has established offices in Austin, Dallas, Denver and Seattle with over 135 team members working on a $1 billion+ pipeline of projects.

The Class A2 Unit issuance 1 is growth equity comprised of a preferred return (or dividend) and profit share, while positioning investors to partake in any future liquidity event, such as an IPO or strategic buyout, offering a potentially robust equity multiple on original investment over the next three to five years based on StoryBuilt’s projections. Specifically, the offering includes a six percent annual preferred return (or dividend) payment paid quarterly, as well as the participation in Class A2 profit share, which in the aggregate is five percent of StoryBuilt’s annual shareholder profits. In addition, a 25 percent premium on investment is due to investors upon a future liquidity event. This combination of cash flow and ownership provides Class A2 investors with cash flow after the first quarter of their investment with StoryBuilt, along with an opportunity for upside.

Opportunities for verified accredited investors include the Class A2 units in StoryBuilt and/or equity interests in individual project partnerships. For more information, visit storybuilt.com.
