Sila Realty Trust, Inc. Receives Approval for Listing on the New York Stock Exchange

May 29, 2024

TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sila Realty Trust, Inc. (the “Company” or “Sila”), a net lease real estate investment trust with a strategic focus on investing in the significant, growing, and resilient healthcare sector of the U.S. economy, is pleased to announce that it has received approval to list its common stock on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”). Trading is expected to commence on the NYSE on June 13, 2024, under the ticker symbol “SILA.” To commemorate the first day of trading on the NYSE, members of the Company’s management team and board of directors are scheduled to ring The Opening Bell at 9:30 a.m. ET on June 13, 2024.

“We are pleased to announce Sila has received approval to list on the New York Stock Exchange,” stated Michael A. Seton, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “This is a significant milestone in our Company’s history, as we believe the listing will introduce Sila to a large and diverse group of investors, offering access to scale capital, while also providing liquidity optionality for our current shareholders.”

In connection with listing on the NYSE, the Company intends to commence a $50 million modified “Dutch Auction” tender offer. The price range for the tender offer will be announced at the launch of the tender offer, which is expected to occur on the same day as the listing on the NYSE.

Furthermore, upon listing on the NYSE, all outstanding shares of Class I common stock and Class T common stock will automatically convert into Class A common stock on a one-for-one basis. Class A common stock will be renamed “common stock” and will be the sole class of stock traded on the NYSE.

The conversion will have no effect on the economic rights of holders of outstanding shares of Class I common stock or Class T common stock. The conversion will occur automatically and without any action on the part of stockholders pursuant to the Company’s charter, as amended or supplemented. The conversion will not impact the preferences, rights, voting powers (one vote per share), restrictions, qualifications, and terms and conditions that currently exist with respect to the Class I common stock and Class T common stock.

Immediately upon and concurrent with such conversion, no shares of Class I common stock or Class T common stock will remain issued or outstanding.

When trading begins on the NYSE, the Company’s common stock will cease trading on the over-the-counter (“OTC”) markets. Sila’s existing stockholders are not required to take any action in connection with the Company listing on the NYSE. The Company recommends that investors who bought shares on the OTC markets monitor their brokerage accounts to ensure their holdings are updated to reflect the NYSE listing and the new ticker symbol.

Wells Fargo Securities is acting as financial advisor to the Company.
