The Benefits of Rollups and UPREITS Strategy

Cendrowski Corporate Advisors played an instrumental part in developing the UPREIT structure during the resurgence of REITs in the early 1990s and has served as the outsourced tax department for a publicly traded REIT with a capital value in excess of $1 billion.

Rollups, in general, and UPREITS in particular, provide an opportunity to aggregate assets on a tax-free basis allowing businesses to diversify their asset portfolios while helping to minimize their tax obligations.

A rollup is a process whereby investors, typically private equity firms, acquire and merge multiple small companies in the same market to reduce costs through economies of scale.

Why Choose an UPREIT Strategy?

Like a roll up, an UPREIT allows for diversification. For example, if a member of the UPREIT is a member of a publicly traded REIT, the roll up entity gains access to publicly traded capital markets. An additional benefit is the ability to convert shares into publicly traded stock.

An Umbrella Partnership Real Estate Investment Trust or UPREIT is an entity that allows owners of real estate that has appreciated to contribute it to a trust, known as a Real Estate Investment Trust or REIT, so they can continue to benefit from a property after the ownership has transferred. It’s a strong strategy for deferring capital gains taxes.
