NXRT announces acquisitions and dispositions (4/03/17)

On April 3, 2017, NexPoint Residential Trust, Inc. (the “Company”) sold The Miramar Apartments, The Grove at Alban and Toscana for a cumulative gross sales price of $57.3 million. The properties, which were classified as held for sale as of December 31, 2016, were sold to three separate unaffiliated third parties.

The Company will use the net proceeds from these dispositions, approximately $26.7 million after the repayment of first mortgage debt obligations, member distributions and other closing costs, to pay down debt incurred on December 29, 2016 and used to acquire the Houston Portfolio, which includes Stone Creek at Old Farm Apartments and Old Farm Apartment Homes. The closing of these sales also completed the reverse 1031 exchange for Stone Creek at Old Farm Apartments and partially completed the reverse 1031 exchange for Old Farm Apartment Homes.

The Company is also under contract to sell Twelve 6 Ten at the Park in Dallas, Texas. The Company expects to use the net proceeds from this disposition to pay down debt and to complete the remaining piece of the reverse 1031 exchange for Old Farm Apartment Homes. Following the completion of these reverse 1031 exchanges, management expects to stabilize the Houston Portfolio’s loan-to-value ratio at approximately 55%.

Additionally, on April 3, 2017, the Company, through its operating partnership, NexPoint Residential Trust Operating Partnership, L.P., entered into an interest rate swap transaction with KeyBank National Association (the “Swap”). The Company entered into the Swap to fix a portion of, and mitigate the risk associated with, the Company’s floating rate indebtedness (without incurring substantial prepayment penalties or defeasance costs typically associated with fixed rate indebtedness).

NexPoint Residential Trust, Inc. Announces Opportunistic Portfolio Acquisition In Houston (1/03/17)

DALLAS, Jan. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NexPoint Residential Trust, Inc. (NYSE: NXRT) announced the completion of the acquisition of a 924-unit apartment portfolio in Houston, Texas. Management has published more information on the merits of the acquisition in an investor presentation at the Investor Relations section of the NXRT website at www.nexpointliving.com.

On December 29, 2016, NexPoint Residential Trust, Inc. (the "Company"), through its operating partnership, NexPoint Residential Trust Operating Partnership, L.P., acquired a two-property portfolio in Houston, Texas for approximately $108 million. The properties, Old Farm Apartment Homes, a 734-unit apartment property built in 1998, and Stone Creek at Old Farm Apartments, a 190-unit apartment property built in 1999 (collectively, the "H2 Portfolio"), are situated on 35.1 acres of contiguous land surrounded by some of Houston's most affluent single family neighborhoods and three major regional employment centers (Uptown, Westchase and Medical City).

The H2 Portfolio acquisition was structured as a reverse 1031 exchange to facilitate the Company's continued plan to recycle capital from dispositions of assets from non-core markets into well-located, "covered-land" assets in longer-term target markets. The Company funded the purchase price with borrowings of approximately $108 million under its credit facilities with KeyBank National Association and Freddie Mac. In connection with the acquisition, the Company expanded its credit facility with Freddie Mac to $300.0 million under the previously disclosed terms of the credit agreement. Following the completion of the reverse 1031 exchanges, management expects the H2 Portfolio's loan-to-value ratio to stabilize at approximately 55%.

This is the Company's first acquisition in Houston since its lone purchase in Houston in November 2014 and opportunistically expands NXRT's footprint in the market to 1,164 units, bringing NXRT's total portfolio to 39 properties consisting of 12,965 units in 10 markets as of January 3, 2017.

Supplemental Information

Supplemental information on the H2 Portfolio acquisition will be included in an investor presentation that can be found in the Investor Relations section of the Company's website at www.nexpointliving.com. Our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission are filed under the registrant name of NexPoint Residential Trust, Inc.

•The weighted average effective monthly rent per unit across all 36 properties held as of September 30, 2016, consisting of 11,626 units, was $848, while physical occupancy was 93.6%.

•NXRT completed upgrades on 538 units and leased 569 upgraded units during the third quarter of 2016, achieving a 21.2% ROI on those units. Since inception, we have completed 4,118 upgrades and achieved a $85 average monthly rental increase per unit, equating to a 21.2% ROI on all units leased through September 30, 2016.

The Company recognized a $9.6 million gain on the sales while the investments returned an approximate cumulative levered IRR of 17.27% and an approximate equity multiple of 1.39x.

1AFFO, FFO and NOI are non-GAAP measures. For reconciliations of AFFO, FFO and NOI to net income and a discussion of why we consider these non-GAAP measures useful, see the "Definitions and Reconciliations" section of this release.

"Having fixed $400 million, or 73.2% of our floating rate debt (swapping LIBOR for 0.9956% for five years), successfully disposing of seven properties, buying back approximately $4.3 million of the Company's stock and redeploying capital into more attractive opportunities in West Palm Beach and Phoenix, we feel it is an appropriate time to increase our quarterly dividend and target a payout ratio of 60 to 65% of our annual funds from operations (FFO). We remain bullish on the internal growth prospects within our existing portfolio and investment opportunities in workforce housing across our core markets and look forward to continuing to deliver value and results for our residents and our stockholders," stated, NXRT Chairman and President, Jim Dondero.

Third Quarter Financial Results

The Company recorded net income in the third quarter of 2016 of $8.8 million, which included gain on sales of real estate of $9.6 million and depreciation and amortization of $8.7 million. This compared to a net loss of $(0.9) million for the third quarter of 2015, which included depreciation and amortization of $9.1 million. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, NXRT had net income of $25.7 million, which included $25.9 million of gain on sales of real estate and $26.4 million of depreciation and amortization. This compared to net loss of $(9.0) million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, which included depreciation and amortization of $30.8 million.

For the three months ended September 30, 2016, FFO was $6.9 million, or $0.32 per common share, and AFFO was $16.2 million, or $0.76 per common share. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, FFO was $22.7 million, or $1.07 per common share, and AFFO was $48.0 million, or $2.25 per common share.

The change in the Company's net income (loss) for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 as compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2015, primarily relate to strong year-over-year performance of our same store portfolio and the disposition of four properties during the third quarter of 2016, as compared to no dispositions during the third quarter of 2015.

Same Store Properties Operating Results

The Company's Same Store property pool at September 30, 2016 included 32 properties totaling 10,292 units, or approximately 88.5% of the Company's 11,626 units. These Same Store properties represented approximately 85.7% of NXRT's NOI for the quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Same Store total revenues, NOI, and occupancy increased 10.2%, 12.8%, and 48 basis points to 93.9%, respectively, in the third quarter of 2016, compared to the third quarter of 2015.

Disposition of Assets

During the third quarter, the Company completed the disposition of Colonial Forest and Park at Blanding in Jacksonville, Florida, Willowdale Crossings in Frederick, Maryland, and Jade Park in Daytona Beach, Florida for a combined $69.7 million of gross sale proceeds, generating an approximate cumulative levered IRR of 17.27% and an approximate equity multiple of 1.39x. Net proceeds from the dispositions were used to retire existing debt, buy back stock and to partially fund the Company's acquisition of The Colonnade (through a 1031 like-kind exchange of Willowdale Crossings) subsequent to quarter end. The exit from the Jacksonville portfolio yielded a 31.5% IRR and 1.62x equity multiple over a 24 month hold period.

Value-Add Programs

For the three months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, we completed full and partial interior rehabs on 538 and 696 units, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, we completed full and partial interior rehabs on 1,475 and 1,543 units, respectively.

Bridge Facility

During the nine months ended September 30, 2016, the Company paid down the entire $29.0 million of principal on its bridge facility, which was funded with $18.0 million of the Company's share of proceeds, net of distributions to noncontrolling interests, from the sales of Park at Regency and Mandarin Reserve, $9.0 million of proceeds drawn under the Company's Credit Facility and $2.0 million of cash on hand. The Bridge Facility was retired on August 2, 2016.

Interest Rate Swap Agreements

In order to fix a portion of, and mitigate the risk associated with, the Company's floating rate indebtedness (without incurring substantial prepayment penalties or defeasance costs typically associated with fixed rate indebtedness when repaid early or refinanced), the Company, through the OP, has entered into four interest rate swap transactions with KeyBank (the "Counterparty") with a combined notional amount of $400.0 million. The interest rate swaps effectively replace the floating interest rate (one-month LIBOR) with a weighted average fixed rate of 0.9956%. During the term of these interest rate swap agreements, the Company is required to make monthly fixed rate payments of 0.9956%, on a weighted average basis, on the notional amounts, while the Counterparty is obligated to make monthly floating rate payments based on one-month LIBOR to the Company referencing the same notional amounts. The Company has designated these interest rate swaps as cash flow hedges of interest rate risk.

Third Quarter 2016 Dividend

On August 9, 2016, the Company declared its sixth consecutive quarterly dividend of $0.206 per share of NXRT common stock, which was paid on September 30, 2016 to stockholders of record on September 15, 2016.

Share Repurchase Program

During the nine months ended September 30, 2016, the Company purchased 81,214 shares of its common stock at a total cost of approximately $1,524,000, or $18.76 per share. The cost of these shares is included in common stock held in treasury at cost on the consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2016. As of September 30, 2016, the Company had 21,293,825 million shares of its common stock issued and 21,212,611 shares outstanding.

As of November 9, 2016, the Company had 21,293,825 million shares of its common stock issued and 21,060,479 shares outstanding.

The Company expanded its Credit Facility and used $29.5 million of proceeds drawn to fund a portion of the purchase price, as well as proceeds, net of distributions to noncontrolling interests, from the sales of Willowdale Crossings and Jade Park and cash on hand.

Dallas sets record for average monthly rate (7/22/16)

By Steve Brown

Dallas-area apartment renters can't catch a break.

They are on average paying about $60 a month more than they were a year ago and there is no sign of a rent slowdown.

Apartment analyst Axiometrics says that average Dallas-area rents in June were $1,129 - an all time high.

That represents a 5.5 percent rent hike from June 2015.

"Dallas rent growth has been 5 percent or higher for 20 straight months," Axiometrics said.

The cost of renting a roof over your head is a little lower in the Fort Worth area, averaging $1,011 in June.

But Fort Worth apartment rents are rising faster - up 6.9 percent from a year ago, according to Axiometrics.

Even with huge construction volumes, few apartments are vacant in North Texas.

At midyear Dallas-Fort Worth-area apartments were 95.7 percent occupied.

More than 50,000 apartments are now being built in North Texas - the largest construction volume in more than 30 years.

Axiometrics is forecasting that D-FW apartment rents will continue to rise - up by more than 3 percent in the next year on top of recent increases.

NexPoint leads apartment names after positive coverage (6/28/16)

By Stephen Alpher, SA News Editor

NexPoint Residential Trust has the "right strategy in the right markets," says Canaccord's Ryan Meliker, initiating coverage with a Buy and $20 price target (vs. current $18.27).

The company's M is to buy B-quality multifamily properties in the Southeast and Southwest and then boost rents/lower cap rates with renovation. Meliker sees 2016 same-store NOI of 15.4% vs. sector peers at 6.3%, with similar outperformance through 2018.

Remaining renovations to be completed should boost NAV by $7.37 per share, possibly driving 40% upside in the stock.

He also starts coverage on Monogram Residential, but it just rates a Hold. While the stock trades at a 12% discount to NAV, headwinds should persist until H2 2017. Among those is a retail shareholder base in the money at about $10 per share (current is $9.97), a preferred equity hurdle that caps the stock at about $11.50 in the near-term, and a development pipeline only expected to stabilize in H2 2017.

Why finding housing in booming D-FW market is so difficult (5/06/16)

By Steve Brown

About 80,000 people moved to North Texas last year, or more than 200 newcomers a day.

Unless local folks are renting out space in their attics, I don’t know where all these new people are going to live.

We’ve been underbuilding housing in North Texas since the end of the recession.

And there’s no sign that the shortage of homes in the Dallas-Fort Worth area will ease — at least not as long as our economy is blazing hot.

Last year, D-FW had the second-highest residential construction total of any U.S. market, according to just-released data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Builders filed permits for more than 57,000 D-FW homes, apartments, condos and townhouses.

Only New York City, with 86,424 building permits, had more residential construction.

In D-FW, slightly more than half of the permits recorded in 2015 were for single-family homes. The rest went for apartments.

Apartment construction in North Texas is at the highest point in decades, and there are plenty of rental units on the way for the thousands of young professionals coming to the area to work for State Farm Insurance, Toyota, Liberty Mutual Insurance and others.

But the tight inventory that has frustrated would-be homebuyers for more than two years shows no sign of a thaw.

The inventory of homes listed for sale with real estate agents in North Texas is stuck near a two-month supply. That’s about a third of what’s considered a normal market.

Even with steady increases in construction, home starts in the D-FW area remain about 40 percent below where they were 10 years ago.

Builders had about 30,000 home starts in 2015.

“We won’t see the Dallas-Fort Worth homebuilding market get back to the 2005-06 level of 50,000-plus starts anytime soon,” said David Brown, senior vice president of housing analyst Metrostudy Inc. “The region’s population, household and job growth trends could support starts in excess of 40,000 homes during this cycle, but only if builders can deliver homes at prices the buyers can afford in the locations they want to live.”

Most of the houses built in Dallas-Fort Worth are expensive properties aimed at move-up and affluent buyers.

“Back in 2006, over 60 percent of the new home starts were priced under $200,000,” Brown said. “Today less than 20 percent of the starts are at these most affordable prices.”

Also, a shortage of labor, affordable building sites and rising construction costs are keeping a lid on how many houses builders can produce each year.

The housing industry won’t build its way out of the current property pinch.

And homebuyers who head out to house-hunt this spring are finding a cutthroat market with bidding wars for choice properties.

Apartment developers are doing their part to put roofs over everybody’s head. More than 40,000 rental units are in the development pipeline in North Texas.

But apartment analysts say don’t expect a lot more construction volume from the apartment builders. Indeed, they may be pulling back a bit.

“The number of apartment units permitted in Dallas-Fort Worth so far during 2016 — roughly 4,700 units — is off 20 percent or so from early 2015’s volume,” said Greg Willett, vice president of MPF Research. “While those figures can move around a lot from one month to the next, the numbers do suggest we’re now past the peak for starts.”

The change in the Company's FFO and AFFO for the year ended December 31, 2015 as compared to FFO and AFFO for the year ended December 31, 2014 primarily relates to the Company acquiring, owning and operating an additional 10 properties for a total of 42 properties as of December 31, 2015, as compared to acquiring, owning and operating 32 properties as of December 31, 2014.

Multifamily Dispositions

In general, NXRT intends to hold its multifamily properties for production of rental income. During the year ended December 31, 2015, we did not sell any of our multifamily properties. Economic and market conditions may influence us to hold our investments for different periods of time. From time to time, we may sell an asset before the end of the expected holding period, particularly if we receive a bona fide unsolicited offer with attractive terms, if we have an upcoming liquidity need, such as a debt maturing, or if the sale of the asset would otherwise be in the best interests of our stockholders. When reviewing whether a sale is in the best interests of our stockholders, we take into consideration whether market conditions and asset positioning have maximized the value of the property to us and any potential adverse tax consequences of a sale. In some cases, we may determine that a particular market no longer fits within our business strategy and sell assets to exit that market.

Cautionary Notice Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on management's current expectations, assumptions and beliefs. Forward-looking statements can often be identified by words such as "expect" and similar expressions, and variations or negatives of these words. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding NXRT's guidance for financial results for the full year 2016. They are not guarantees of future results and are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statement. Readers should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements and are encouraged to review NXRT's Forms 10-Q for the first, second, and third quarters of 2015, as well as the Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 that will be filed with the SEC on or before March 30, 2016 for a more complete discussion of the risks and other factors that could affect any forward-looking statements. Except as required by the federal securities laws, NXRT does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, changing circumstances or any other reason after the date of this press release.

Definitions and Reconciliations

This press release includes analysis of adjusted funds from operations, or AFFO, funds from operations, or FFO, and net operating income, or NOI, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures of performance. These non-GAAP measures should be used as a supplement to, and not a substitute for, net income (loss) computed in accordance with GAAP. For a more complete discussion of AFFO, FFO, and NOI, see our Forms 10-Q for the first, second, and third quarters of 2015, as well as our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, that will be filed with the SEC on or before March 30, 2016. This press release also includes an analysis of our Same Store properties, which are defined as those that are stabilized and comparable for both the current and the prior reporting year. Same Store analysis for the fourth quarter of 2015 includes 25 properties totaling 7,532 units, or approximately 57% of the Company's 13,155 units.

FFO and AFFO

We believe that net income, as defined by GAAP, is the most appropriate earnings measure. We also believe that funds from operations, or FFO, as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"), and adjusted funds from operations, or AFFO, are important non-GAAP supplemental measures of operating performance for a REIT. Because the historical cost accounting convention used for real estate assets requires depreciation except on land, such accounting presentation implies that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. However, since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market and other conditions, presentations of operating results for a REIT that use historical cost accounting for depreciation could be less informative. Thus, NAREIT created FFO as a supplemental measure of operating performance for REITs that excludes historical cost depreciation and amortization, among other items, from net income, as defined by GAAP. FFO is defined by NAREIT as net income computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains or losses from real estate dispositions, plus real estate depreciation and amortization and impairment charges. We compute FFO attributable to common shareholders in accordance with NAREIT's definition. Our presentation differs slightly in that we begin with Net Loss before adjusting for noncontrolling interests and show the noncontrolling interests as an adjustment to arrive at FFO attributable to common shareholders. AFFO is calculated by adjusting our FFO by adding back items that do not reflect ongoing property operations, such as acquisition expenses, equity-based compensation expenses and the amortization of deferred loan costs. AFFO will also be adjusted to include any gains (losses) from sales of property to the extent excluded from FFO and exclude relevant noncontrolling interests. We will not have any equity-based compensation expenses unless and until our stockholders approve an amendment to the Company's charter to remove the 1940 Act compliance requirements.

We believe that the use of FFO and AFFO, combined with the required GAAP presentations, improves the understanding of operating results of REITs among investors and makes comparisons of operating results among such companies more meaningful.

Net Operating Income

NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure of performance. NOI is used by investors and our management to evaluate and compare the performance of our properties, to determine trends in earnings and to compute the fair value of our properties as it is not affected by (1) cost of funds, (2) acquisition costs, (3) non-operating fees paid to affiliates, (4) the impact of depreciation and amortization expenses as well as gains or losses from the sale of operating real estate assets that are included in net income computed in accordance with GAAP, (5) corporate general and administrative expenses and other gains and losses that are specific to us and (6) entity level general and administrative expenses that are either non-recurring in nature or incurred on behalf of us at the property for expenses such as legal, professional and franchise tax fees.

Same Store Properties

We review our stabilized multifamily communities on a comparable basis between periods. Our Same Store properties are defined as those that are stabilized and comparable for both the current period and the same period for the prior reporting year. There are twenty-five properties meeting this definition for the fourth quarter of 2015: Miramar, Arbors on Forest Ridge, Cutter's Point, Eagle Crest, Meridian, Silverbrook, Timberglen, Toscana, The Grove at Alban, Willowdale Crossing, Edgewater at Sandy Springs, Beechwood Terrace, Willow Grove, Woodbridge, Abbington Heights, Colonial Forest, Courtney Cove, Park at Blanding, Park at Regency, The Summit at Sabal Park, Jade Park, Mandarin Reserve, Timber Creek, Belmont at Duck Creek, and Radbourne Lake.

Reconciliation of Guidance for 2016 NOI, FFO and AFFO

The Company anticipates that net loss will be in the range between $2.0 million to $4.0 million for the full year 2016. The difference between net loss and FFO is depreciation and amortization, which is anticipated to be $35.0 million to $36.0 million for the full year 2016. The difference between FFO and AFFO is deferred loan costs to the extent excluded from FFO, which are anticipated to total approximately $1.1 million for the full year 2016. The difference between net loss and NOI is depreciation and amortization, interest expense, the advisory and administrative fees and the reimbursement of adviser expenses, which are anticipated to total approximately $72.0 million to $74.0 million for the full year 2016. Our guidance assumes we owned all properties for the full year 2016. The Company expects approximately 21,293,825 shares to be outstanding during 2016.

Kick up a fuss if you like, but apartments are a reality (1/28/16)

By Steve Brown

It may be the first time ever that a neighborhood has protested plans to tear down a derelict big-box store.

But the folks in Addison turned out in droves this week to protest replacing a vacant Sam’s Club on Belt Line Road with a combination of apartments, townhouses, restaurants and shops.

Oh, it wasn’t the townhouses and retail that ticked off the neighbors.

But the prospect of constructing apartments on the property was more than a lot of folks in the neighborhood could bear.

Just the mention of the A-word to many homeowners is enough to send them scrambling to City Hall.

Apartments are still an urban anathema to many North Texas residents.

In Plano, citizens disgruntled over plans to add more rental units are threatening to force a recall election for city leaders.

While I understand why some homeowners bristle at the notion of renters moving into the ’hood, I can’t spare much sympathy.

As North Texas’ population balloons to almost 10 million people in the years ahead, the NIMBYs are going to get mowed down by thousands and thousands of young professionals who need a place to live.

Most of them will move into apartments.

The Dallas-Fort Worth population is growing by about 100,000 people a year — roughly half of them migrants coming for jobs. The bulk of those newcomers are 20-somethings who are prime renters.

That’s what is driving the apartment building boom in North Texas. Almost 40,000 apartments are being built in D-FW.

We need every one of them to house the thousands of people moving here to work for the Toyotas, Liberty Mutuals and State Farms that are hiring like crazy.

The share of Americans under age 35 who own a home has dropped to 35 percent, its lowest level in decades. Total homeownership in North Texas has declined in recent years to about 56 percent.

That means more than 40 percent of the people who live in D-FW are renters.

Don’t expect a lot of them to run out and buy houses anytime soon.

Average new-home prices in the area have zoomed to over $300,000 — beyond the means of many young workers.

Even if they could find a house they could afford, it’s probably not where they want to live but out in the ’burbs away from popular restaurants, retail and, most important, jobs.

Of course one of the big arguments against adding apartments is that with all those renters come more cars and traffic congestion.

Sure, I get that. But making people drive miles farther to find apartments will just add to congestion.

New employers relocating to North Texas are practically demanding that apartment builders construct units near job centers so their workers won’t spend all day stuck in their cars trying to get to the office.

D-FW still has one of the hottest economies in the country.

That means more people, more cars, more hassles along with increased jobs and incomes.

It also means more apartments — a lot more.

Jim Dondero, Chairman and President of NXRT, said, "This quarter's results helped solidify our value-add thesis and what we believe is the key to our Company's near-term future growth. Our Same Store NOI, which added one property in the third quarter, delivered a strong 11.0% growth. We are also pleased to announce that on October 30, 2015, we purchased The Place at Vanderbilt, a 333-unit apartment community in Fort Worth, Texas."

Third Quarter Financial Results

For the quarter ended September 30, 2015, AFFO attributable to common shareholders was $7.9 million, or $0.37 per common share, and FFO was $7.0 million, or $0.33 per common share. For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, AFFO attributable to common shareholders was $22.1 million, or $1.04 per common share, and FFO was $18.7 million or $0.88 per common share.

The Company recorded a net loss in the third quarter of 2015 of $890,000, which included depreciation and amortization of $9.1 million. This compared to a net loss of $6.4 million for the third quarter of 2014, which included depreciation and amortization of $5.8 million. For the first nine months of 2015, the Company had a net loss of $9.0 million, which included $30.8 million of depreciation and amortization. This compared to a net loss of $11.4 million for the first nine months of 2014, which included depreciation and amortization of $11.4 million.

The changes in the Company's net loss, AFFO and FFO for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2014 primarily relate to NXRT acquiring, owning and operating an additional 16 properties for a total of 41 properties as of September 30, 2015, compared to 25 properties at September 30, 2014, as well as Same Store NOI growth of 11.0%.

Definitions and Reconciliations

This press release includes analysis of adjusted funds from operations, or AFFO, funds from operations, or FFO, and net operating income, or NOI, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures of performance. These non-GAAP measures should be used as a supplement to, and not a substitute for, net income (loss) computed in accordance with GAAP. For a more complete discussion of AFFO, FFO, and NOI, see our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2015, that will be filed with the SEC on November 13, 2015, and our Form 10-Qs for the first and second quarter previously filed with the SEC. This press release includes an analysis of Same Store properties, those multifamily communities that are stabilized and comparable for both the current and the prior reporting year. Same Store property analysis for third quarter includes 10 properties totaling 3,227 units, or approximately 25% of the Company's 12,822 units for the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

FFO and AFFO

We believe that net income, as defined by GAAP, is the most appropriate earnings measure. We also believe that funds from operations, or FFO, as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"), and adjusted funds from operations, or AFFO, are important non-GAAP supplemental measures of operating performance for a REIT. Because the historical cost accounting convention used for real estate assets requires depreciation except on land, such accounting presentation implies that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. However, since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market and other conditions, presentations of operating results for a REIT that use historical cost accounting for depreciation could be less informative. Thus, NAREIT created FFO as a supplemental measure of operating performance for REITs that excludes historical cost depreciation and amortization, among other items, from net income, as defined by GAAP. FFO is defined by NAREIT as net income computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains or losses from real estate dispositions, plus real estate depreciation and amortization and impairment charges. We compute FFO attributable to common shareholders in accordance with NAREIT's definition. Our presentation differs slightly in that we begin with Net Loss before adjusting for noncontrolling interests and show the noncontrolling interests as an adjustment to arrive at FFO attributable to common shareholders. AFFO is calculated by adjusting our FFO by adding back items that do not reflect ongoing property operations, such as acquisition expenses, equity-based compensation expenses and the amortization of deferred loan costs. AFFO will also be adjusted to include any gains (losses) from sales of property to the extent excluded from FFO and exclude relevant noncontrolling interests. We will not have any equity-based compensation expenses unless and until our stockholders approve an amendment to the Company's charter to remove the 1940 Act compliance requirements.

We believe that the use of FFO and AFFO, combined with the required GAAP presentations, improves the understanding of operating results of REITs among investors and makes comparisons of operating results among such companies more meaningful.

[tables deleted]

Gain on eminent domain: On August 4, 2015, The Department of Transportation of the State of Georgia ("DOT"), through exercise of eminent domain, appropriated 0.966 acres of land and certain access rights from The Crossings in Marietta, GA and paid the sum of $326,111 as just and adequate compensation. The Company recognized a gain on eminent domain of $157,882. Due to immateriality, the gain on eminent domain was included in Other Income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015.

Net Operating Income

NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure of performance. NOI is used by investors and our management to evaluate and compare the performance of our properties, to determine trends in earnings and to compute the fair value of our properties as it is not affected by (1) the cost of funds, (2) acquisition costs, (3) non-operating fees to affiliates, (4) the impact of depreciation and amortization expenses as well as gains or losses from the sale of operating real estate assets that are included in net income computed in accordance with GAAP or (5) corporate general and administrative expenses and other gains and losses that are specific to us and (6) entity level general and administrative expenses that are either non-recurring in nature or incurred on behalf of us at the property for expenses such as legal, professional and franchise tax fees.

The following is a table that details our net operating income for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 and the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014. The net operating income in the following table has not been adjusted for the effects of any noncontrolling interests.

Reconciliation of Guidance for 2015 NOI, FFO and 2015 AFFO

The Company anticipates that net loss will be in the range between $10.0 million to $11.0 million for the full year of 2015 and between $1 million to $2 million for the fourth quarter of 2015. The difference between net loss and FFO is depreciation and amortization and gains from property dispositions, which is anticipated to be $40.0 million to $41.0 million for the full year of 2015. The difference between FFO and AFFO is deferred loan costs, acquisition costs, and gains to the extent excluded from FFO which are anticipated to total approximately $4 million for the full year of 2015. The difference between net loss and NOI is depreciation and amortization, interest expense, acquisition costs, the advisory and administrative fees and the reimbursement of adviser expenses, which are anticipated to total approximately $70 million to $71 million for the full year of 2015 and $16 million to $17 million for the fourth quarter of 2015. Our guidance also assumes no additional property acquisitions in 2015 other than the previously reported acquisition on October 30, 2015 of The Place at Vanderbilt.

In this release, "we," "us," "our," the "Company," "NexPoint," "NexPoint Residential Trust" and "NXRT" each refer to NexPoint Residential Trust, Inc., a Maryland corporation.

Still no oil price impact for D-FW real estate (9/24/15)

So far North Texas’ hot real estate market is shrugging off the plunge in oil prices.

And economists who are tracking property markets predict that the Dallas-Fort Worth area will continue to outperform other Oil Patch cities, according to a new report by CBRE Group Inc.

“The collapse in crude oil prices that began a little over a year ago brought uncertainty, speculation and a negative outlook to key energy markets and how the pricing outlook might affect commercial real estate,” Robert Kramp, CBRE’s director of research and analysis, said in a statement. “Even though crude oil prices are expected to remain low for the foreseeable future, Dallas-Ft. Worth’s vibrant commercial real estate performance demonstrates how the state is well hedged against the energy downturn.”

The commercial real estate firm predicts that office vacancy rates will continue to fall in North Texas through the end of next year because the energy industry has such a small share of the local economy.

“Given the diverse industry base of Dallas-Ft. Worth and the energy sector’s 1.1 percent share of metro employment, any economic impact from low oil prices is expected to be marginal on a local level,” Michael Caffey, executive managing director with CBRE, said in the report. “This means commercial real estate occupancy sees minimal effects as our region looks to other industries like finance, insurance, wholesale trade and transportation for growth.”

D-FW’s commercial property market is still prospering while conditions are deteriorating in energy markets including Houston and Calgary, according to CBRE.

Houston leads the country in office construction and has seen a surge in empty sublease space this year as oil and gas firms have cut back.

North Texas’ office, apartment, shopping center and industrial markets are all forecast for continued growth, according to the commercial real estate firm’s report.

Energy has a larger share of Texas economy than in any other state – about 47 percent of the state’s gross domestic production.

Rents Rise Faster for Midtier Apartments Than Luxury Ones (8/16/15)

Developers’ focus on high end contributes to shortage of affordable units; construction costs too high to build middle-income housing

By Laura Kusisto

The Verona apartment complex in suburban Denver doesn’t have the flashy amenities some tenants covet. No infinity pool. No rooftop lounge. No concierge service. Still, demand at the 1980s-era complex is so strong that the landlord has raised the rent 72% on some apartments in just two years, after renovations.

Modest apartment buildings like the Verona that cater to middle-class and working-class families are becoming scarcer as fewer are built nationwide and older ones are demolished. That has resulted in a severe shortage of midtier apartments, causing rents for these units to rise at a faster pace than for luxury ones.

Even though construction of multifamily rental properties is running at the highest level in decades, the overwhelming majority of new units—more than 80% in the nation’s largest metropolitan areas—are luxury, according to CoStar Group Inc.

Construction costs are generally too high to justify building new complexes for low- and middle-income tenants, experts say, contributing to the scarcity. For instance, AvalonBay Communities Inc., one of the country’s largest apartment developers, spends $340,000 on average for each unit it builds, according to Dave Bragg, an analyst for Green Street Advisors. The average monthly rent, to make up for construction costs, is projected at $2,900—putting those units near the top end of even pricey apartment markets.

The difference in costs between installing granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances is so slight compared to buying land and installing elevators that economists say developing a luxury apartment and a midtier one comes out roughly the same. Historically, developers could save some money by building low-rise buildings in suburban locations, but even those are becoming increasingly difficult to build as even suburban officials push developers to develop midrise buildings in central locations and reduce sprawl.

New households are also much more likely to be renters than buyers, raising rents. Though rents are rising rapidly for all classes of apartments, the influx of luxury units is starting to slow rent hikes in that category, while the dearth of lower-priced apartments is having the opposite effect.

According to Axiometrics Inc., an apartment research firm based in Dallas, rents during the second quarter of 2015 jumped 5.8% for Class B apartments, which are aimed at middle-class families. These tend to be low-rise suburban buildings from the 1980s, with amenities that often include an outdoor pool, a business center and ample green space. Rents rose 4.9% for Class C apartments, aimed at the working class. Meanwhile, rents grew 4.2% for Class A luxury apartments, which are more likely to be downtown high-rises with city views, infinity pools and doormen.

“Everybody and their mother is out building these Class A apartments,” said Ryan Severino, senior economist at Reis Inc. “Nobody is building B and C apartments.” Research by Reis, which tracks commercial real estate, found that the supply of less expensive apartments, excluding rent-regulated units, has decreased 1.6% since 2002. Over that time, high-end apartment inventory has increased 31%.

In many U.S. cities, fewer units are available to middle-income households, according to a report by New York University’s Furman Center and Capital One Financial Corp. In Miami, middle-income renters could afford 33% of recently available apartments in 2013, down from 40% in 2006. In Philadelphia, 35% were affordable to such renters, compared with 45% in 2006.

Even though rents are rising faster on middle-class apartments, they are still considerably less expensive than luxury apartments. Rents for Class A apartments, which make up the top 20% of the market, averaged $1,702 in the second quarter, according to Axiometrics. Class B rents, which make up the middle 60%, averaged $1,192 and Class C rents averaged $845.

In the Denver area, for example, rents average $1,686 a month for luxury apartments, $1,290 for midtier and $965 for lower-end, according to Axiometrics. In Boston, it is $3,345 for luxury, nearly $2,050 for midtier and $1,486 for the most affordable units. In the San Francisco area, Class A apartments are more than $4,000, Class B are $3,125 and Class C are more than $2,200.

At the Verona in Littleton, Colo., applications from prospective tenants are piling up, prompting the management to work “faster, faster, faster,” to turn over vacant units, said Kevin Finkel, executive vice president at Philadelphia-based Resource Real Estate, which owns the complex and other midtier apartment buildings around the country. About half of the monthly rents turn into profit for the company, Mr. Finkel said.

Resource Real Estate purchased the Verona in 2013, paying about $30 million for the 300-unit complex that includes 12 low-rise buildings. The apartments featured beige carpeting, dark brown cupboards and fake brick fireplaces. Resource poured between $3 million and $4 million into upgrades, including laminate countertops and faux wood floors. Rents are now pushing $1,500 a month for some two-bedroom units that had brought in $871 a month before Resource took over.

Traffic from potential renters calling and touring the complex has risen 25% since Resource began renovations. To keep up, the company has renovation teams working double shifts to get units ready for new renters and it has also cut down on marketing.

Mr. Finkel said the Verona appeals to millennials who can’t afford to buy a suburban house or rent a luxury apartment in Denver. Tenants are often single parents looking for an affordable place to live in a community with good schools.

Ian Cochrane, a 39-year-old artist with two children, recently moved into the building after rent on the single-family home where he lived, in the suburb of Aurora, was set to rise to nearly $1,900 from $1,595. Mr. Cochrane, who was divorced in January, said the new apartment is more affordable at around $1,350 a month and has a saltwater pool and good schools for his daughter, 5, and son, 10.

Denver, a historically affordable city for the middle class, has become less so as both rents and house prices have risen sharply. Overall, rents in the city were up 6% over the past year, according to Reis. Mr. Cochrane, who spent six years as a stay-at-home dad and relies on alimony payments to cover the rent, said the new apartment is affordable but he has little room to save. “It can be a struggle for sure,” he said.

Nationwide, rent increases are inflating the pool of families classified as rent burdened, meaning they spend more than 30% of their income on housing. A report released last month by Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies found that one in five renter households with income of $45,000 to $75,000 a year was rent-burdened in 2013, up from about 18% in 2008 and 15% in 2003.

Experts said that while some of the luxury apartments under construction today could eventually become more affordable due to oversupply, that isn’t likely to help middle-class renters soon.

“The gap between what is the top of the market and what’s truly affordable has gotten so large that the odds of the new stuff ultimately becoming affordable is much smaller now than it has been in the past,” said Andrew Jakabovics, senior director of policy development and research for Enterprise Community Partners, an affordable-housing group.

Rental Demand Supplies Home-Building Opportunity (7/28/15)

A tight market is pushing rents higher, but new supply is on the way.

When supply is tight, prices rise, but when prices rise, more supply eventually comes along. This is true of commodities like pork bellies and oil. It also is true of apartments. And that is good news for shares of home builders.

Right now, the rental market is extremely tight. While an improving labor market has encouraged more people to set out on their own, limited mortgage availability has made it hard to buy. The Commerce Department on Tuesday reported that the rental vacancy rate—the share of rental units that are unoccupied—fell to 6.8%. in the second quarter from 7.1% in the first quarter, taking it to its lowest level since 1985.

The dearth of rentals has been pushing up rents, with the Labor Department reporting a jump of 3.5% in June versus a year ago. The increases in hot markets like San Francisco and New York City are, of course, far greater.

At a time when few investments offer much in the way of income, rising rents have helped make the landlording business more attractive. In turn, the price for rental units has risen. In the first quarter, the Federal Reserve’s index of multifamily apartment prices was 11% higher than a year earlier, and 20% above its 2007 peak.

But before reckoning that this situation makes for an opportune time to buy into residential real-estate investment trusts, or load up on rental units, investors should take a look at what is happening with supply.

There has been a flurry of apartment building lately that looks as if it will only get more heated. In June, ground was broken on the most multifamily-housing units since 1986. Meanwhile, the number of permits issued for units that construction hasn’t been started on yet also has swelled.

Banks have eased lending standards and as of mid-July had a seasonally adjusted $1.7 trillion in commercial real-estate loans outstanding. That is up 9% from a year earlier. Moreover, the housing market looks as if it is loosening up; this year’s spring selling season was the best since 2007. So many renters may soon become owners.

So the better asset than apartments right now might be the shares of companies in the business of putting up new apartments and homes. And while home-building stocks have had a good run, their average price to forward earnings multiple is about one-fifth below their five-year average.

If supply is what prices say the market craves, somebody has to build it.

Where Are All the Middle-Class Rentals? (6/24/15)

The rent affordability crunch moves up the economic ladder as most new apartments are built to luxury specs

by Patrick Clark

Ryan Dravitz and a roommate shared a spacious apartment in Denver, paying $1,200 a month for 1,200 square feet in a high-rise building a mile from the center of downtown. Then, in 2012, the rental market exploded. The roommate moved out, and Dravitz, 26, moved into a house with four others. His old apartment is now renting for $2,000.

“Luckily, I got engaged recently, so we have a dual income,” said Dravitz, a bank teller and freelance writer and editor. Even so, it’s unlikely the couple will be able to afford to stay downtown, where rents are rising rapidly, and new rental buildings with such amenities as golf simulators and dog spas are becoming increasingly common.

Skyrocketing rents and multiple roommates—these are the kinds of war stories you expect to hear in space-constrained cities such as New York and San Francisco. But the rental crunch has been steadily creeping inland from coastal cities and up the economic ladder.

“For lower-income households, affordability has been a problem for decades,” says Stockton Williams, executive director at the Urban Land Institute’s Terwilliger Center for Housing. “Now you have people in middle-income, two-earner households who are paying unsustainable rents.”

For builders, the logic is clear. Profit margins are often better at the high end, and costly such amenities as floor-to-ceiling windows and high-end appliances help entice new tenants—as long as there's a market of renters who can afford the pricier digs.

“When you build something new, you want to push the quality up to give people a reason to move up,” says Cary Bruteig, a partner at Apartment Insights who tracks the Denver market.

Here's the vicious circle that's sending rents spiraling higher:

1.People paying high rents have a harder time saving for a down payment, preventing tenants from exiting the rental market.

2.Low vacancy rates let landlords raise rents still higher.

3.Developers who know they can command high rents (and sales prices) are spurred to spend more to acquire developable land.

4.Higher land costs can force builders to target the higher end of the market.

Real estate developers in the U.S. started work on 360,000 new apartments last year, the most in more than 25 years, though not necessarily on homes most Americans can afford. In 2013, the median rent for a new apartment was $1,290, about 50 percent of the median renter’s monthly income, according to data published today by Harvard’s Joint Center on Housing Studies. Eighty-two percent of the new units completed from 2012 to 2014 were luxury apartments, according to CoStar Group research cited by the Wall Street Journal.

In Denver, the story of the rental affordability crunch starts at the tail end of the housing boom, after the easier path to home ownership had curtailed demand for new rental apartments. The local economy roared to life after the recession, workers flocked to the city, and rental prices shot up. Rents rose 10.2 percent last year, according to a February report from Zillow, the third-highest rate among U.S. cities, after San Francisco and San Jose.

Developers moved to soak up the new demand. Based on projects currently under construction, developers will have added close to 11,000 apartments within 1.5 miles of the city center from 2010 to 2016, according to an estimate by Ken Schroeppel, founder of the DenverInfill blog, which tracks new construction. About 96 percent of those units are rentals.

In addition to higher absolute rents, apartment dwellers are paying more for less. Two-thirds of new apartments built in Denver from 2010 to 2015 were one-bedrooms or studios, compared to just under half from 2000 to 2009, according to Pat Stucker, managing director at Jones Lang LaSalle's Denver Capital Markets group. Downsized apartments include new pie-slice units at Turntable Studios, a circular building that was once a downtown hotel. The smallest are 330 square feet and rent for up to $1,000 a month.

In a perfect world, affluent renters would trickle up into new, luxury units, while rates on plainer units would come down or stay the same. But the vacancy rate on Denver apartments is just 4.3 percent, according to Bruteig. Until that number rises, demand is likely to keep rents high.

The same dynamic holds true nationally, as the share of Americans who rent their housing is at a 20-year high and likely to keep rising. A report earlier this month from the Urban Institute predicts that 59 percent of new households formed from 2010 to 2020 will rent.

“The real question," says Stucker of Jones Lang LaSalle, "is how long can that last before you reach a level that is not affordable to the majority of the demographic that you’re trying to service."

NexPoint Residential Trust, Inc. Appoints Arthur Laffer and James Dondero to Board of Directors (5/12/15)

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NexPoint Residential Trust, Inc. (NYSE: NXRT) ("NXRT" or the "Company") announced today that Arthur Laffer and James Dondero have been appointed as members of its board of directors. Mr. Laffer was also appointed Chairman of the Compensation Committee, and Mr. Dondero was appointed Chairman of the Board.

“Mr. Laffer is one of the industry’s most prolific minds and Mr. Dondero is our co-founder with over 30 years of proven industry experience,” Brian Mitts, Chief Financial Officer of NXRT said. “We are excited to have the opportunity to bring these two high-quality individuals onto our board of directors and we look forward to seeing the added value and expertise they can bring to our team.”

Dr. Arthur Laffer is the founder and chairman of Laffer Associates, an economic research and consulting firm. A former member of President Reagan's Economic Policy Advisory Board during the 1980s, Dr. Laffer's economic acumen and influence have earned him the distinction in many publications as The Father of Supply-Side Economics. He has served on several boards of directors of public and private companies, including staffing company MPS Group, Inc., which was sold to Adecco Group for $1.3 billion in 2009. Dr. Laffer was previously a consultant to Secretary of the Treasury William Simon, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and Secretary of the Treasury George Shultz. In the early 1970s, Dr. Laffer was the first to hold the title of Chief Economist at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under Mr. Shultz. Additionally, Dr. Laffer was formerly the Distinguished University Professor at Pepperdine University and a member of the Pepperdine Board of Directors. He also served as Charles B. Thornton Professor of Business Economics at the University of Southern California and as Associate Professor of Business Economics at the University of Chicago. Laffer is credited with advancing the concept of supply-side economics when he drew a curve on the back of a napkin at a dinner meeting, showing that government tax receipts can sometimes increase when federal income tax rates are lowered. The Laffer Curve and supply-side economics served as the foundation for Reaganomics in the 1980s when Dr. Laffer served on the President's Economic Policy Advisory Board from 1981 to 1989. Dr. Laffer has been recognized for his achievements in economics, having been featured in Time Magazine's 1999 cover story, The Century's Greatest Minds, for inventing the Laffer Curve, which Time deemed one of a few of the advances that powered this extraordinary century.

James Dondero serves as the Company’s President. He is also the co-founder and president of Highland Capital Management, L.P., founder and president of NexPoint Advisors, L.P. and chairman of NexBank, an affiliated bank that is majority owned by Mr. Dondero.

NexPoint Residential Trust, Inc. Acquires Bayberry Apartments (4/20/15)

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NexPoint Residential Trust, Inc. (NYSE: NXRT) ("NXRT"), a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) focused on multifamily real property, announced today that it has acquired an apartment community located in West Palm Beach, Florida, for a purchase price of $21,000,000.

The property, known as Bayberry, was constructed in 1986 and 1987 and consists of 222 one- and two-bedroom residential units. The community offers amenities including a clubhouse with a seating lounge, a pool area with a sundeck, an updated fitness center, two lighted tennis courts, an outdoor lounge and barbecue area and a car care center. Bayberry is located near several dynamic employment markets spread across downtown West Palm Beach, North Palm Beach and Boca Raton.

NXRT plans to implement a capital expenditure program consisting of significant interior and exterior improvements, including enhanced exterior lighting, improved landscaping and new unit fixtures and flooring. Matt McGraner, NXRT’s Executive VP and Chief Investment Officer, said, “We believe Bayberry will make an excellent addition to NXRT’s portfolio. West Palm Beach is a highly desirable submarket with strong fundamentals, and Bayberry represents a perfect fit for NXRT’s value-add strategy.”

Acquisition Funding

As part of the purchase consideration for Bayberry, NXRT has entered into a new $12.6 million floating rate mortgage, with 48 months of interest only at an interest rate of 1.80% over 30-day LIBOR maturing in March 2022. The balance of the purchase price was funded using the NXRT's available unrestricted cash.

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NexPoint Residential Trust, Inc. (NYSE: NXRT) ("NXRT" or the "Company") announced today the successful completion of its spin-off from NexPoint Credit Strategies Fund (NYSE: NHF) ("NHF"). The Company will begin "regular way" trading as an independent public company on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "NXRT," starting tomorrow, April 1, 2015.

NXRT is a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) that will focus on directly or indirectly acquiring, owning, operating and selectively developing well-located Class A and B multifamily properties with “value-add” potential in large cities and suburban submarkets of large cities. NXRT’s initial portfolio consists of 38 multifamily properties primarily located in the Southeastern United States and Texas. NXRT is externally advised by NexPoint Real Estate Advisors, L.P., an affiliate of Highland Capital Management, L.P., a leading global alternative asset manager and an SEC-registered investment adviser which, together with its affiliates, has approximately $20.2 billion in assets under management as of January 31, 2015. NexPoint Real Estate Advisors, L.P. will conduct substantially all of NXRT’s operations and manage NXRT’s real estate investments. The members of the management team of NexPoint Real Estate Advisors, L.P. are James Dondero, Brian Mitts, Matt McGraner, Matthew Goetz and Scott Ellington. The management team has significant experience across real estate investing, private lending, and private equity.

“We believe the spin-off of NXRT will allow us to replicate and build upon NHF’s tremendous success over the past several years by continuing to develop and optimize our real estate portfolio as a standalone company,” said Brian Mitts, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Financial Officer, Executive VP-Finance and Treasurer of NXRT and Chief Operating Officer of NexPoint Advisors, the adviser to NHF. “Our experienced and dedicated real estate team continues to see attractive investments in multifamily properties and we’re looking forward to NXRT’s potential.”

NHF completed the spin-off through a pro-rata taxable distribution of NXRT common stock to NHF shareholders of record as of the close of business on March 23, 2015 (the "Record Date"). NHF shareholders received one share of NXRT common stock for every three NHF common shares held on the Record Date. There are approximately 21.3 million shares of NXRT common stock outstanding after the spin-off. The distribution of these shares was made in book-entry form, which means that no physical stock certificates were issued.

Prior to the spin-off, NHF and NXRT entered into a separation and distribution agreement and various other agreements related to the spin-off, as described in NXRT’s information statement filed with the SEC and available on NXRT’s website. Please visit NXRT’s website at http://www.NexPointLiving.com under the Investor Relations section for additional information regarding the spin-off.

NexPoint Credit Strategies Fund Announces Record and Distribution Dates for REIT Spin-Off (3/11/15)

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NexPoint Credit Strategies Fund (NYSE: NHF) announced today that its Board of Trustees has approved the separation of its business into two separate and independent publicly traded companies:

• NexPoint Credit Strategies Fund (“NHF”), which will continue to operate as a non-diversified, closed-end investment company; and

• NexPoint Residential Trust, Inc. (“NXRT”), which will acquire, own, operate and selectively develop multifamily properties.

The Board of Trustees has approved, and NHF plans to effect the separation through, a spin-off in which NHF will distribute all of the outstanding shares of NXRT common stock to NHF’s shareholders on a pro rata basis. The distribution will be made to NHF shareholders of record as of the close of business on March 23, 2015, the record date for the distribution. The shares are expected to be distributed on March 31, 2015.

In the distribution, shareholders of NHF will receive one share of NXRT common stock for every three NHF common shares held as of the close of business on the record date. No fractional shares will be distributed in connection with the spin-off. A cash payment will be made in lieu of any fractional shares.

Following the spin-off, NXRT will be a separate publicly traded company distinct from NHF, and NHF will not retain any NXRT common stock. NHF will continue to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) under the symbol "NHF," while NXRT expects to list its common stock on NYSE under the symbol "NXRT."

NXRT will be externally managed by NexPoint Real Estate Advisors, L.P., an affiliate of NexPoint Advisors, L.P., the advisor for NHF, and an affiliate of Highland Capital Management, L.P., a leading global alternative asset manager and an SEC-registered investment advisor that, together with its affiliates, has approximately $20.2 billion in assets under management as of December 31, 2014. NexPoint Real Estate Advisors, L.P. will conduct substantially all of NXRT’s operations and manage NXRT’s real estate investments. The members of the management team of NexPoint Real Estate Advisors, L.P. are expected to be James Dondero, Brian Mitts, Matt McGraner, Matthew Goetz, and Scott Ellington. The management team has significant experience across real estate investing, private lending, and private equity.

It is expected that, beginning on or shortly before March 23, 2015 through March 31, 2015, there will be two markets in NHF shares:

• a "regular-way" market in which NHF shares will trade with an entitlement to receive shares of NXRT common stock on the distribution date; and

• an "ex-distribution" market in which NHF shares will trade without an entitlement to receive shares of NXRT common stock on the distribution date.

During this time period, it is also expected that shares of NXRT common stock will begin trading on a "when-issued" basis. On the first trading day following the distribution date, all NHF shares and shares of NXRT common stock will be traded only on a "regular-way" market.

No action is required by NHF shareholders in order to receive shares of NXRT common stock in the distribution. An information statement containing details of the spin-off and information about NXRT will be mailed to NHF shareholders prior to the distribution date.

The spin-off is conditioned on NXRT's registration statement being declared effective by the SEC and NYSE’s authorization to list NXRT’s shares on NYSE and other conditions described in the registration statement. NHF also reserves the right to withdraw and cancel the distribution if, at any time prior to the distribution date, the Board of Trustees of NHF determines that the spin-off is not in the best interests of NHF and its shareholders, or that market conditions or other circumstances are such that the spin-off is no longer advisable. If NHF’s Board of Trustees abandons the spin-off, NHF will be responsible for all the expenses and other costs associated with the spin-off.

The distribution will not qualify for tax-free treatment. NHF shareholders are urged to consult their financial advisers and tax advisers regarding the particular consequences of the distribution in their situation, including, without limitation, the specific implications of selling NHF shares on or prior to the distribution date and the applicability and effect of any U.S. federal, state, local and foreign tax laws.

About NexPoint Credit Strategies Fund

NexPoint Credit Strategies Fund is a closed-end fund managed by NexPoint Advisors, L.P. NHF’s investment objectives are to provide both current income and capital appreciation. NHF is invested primarily in below investment grade debt and equity securities and has the ability to hedge risk. The manager attempts to exceed the return of the Dow Jones Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Index and the HFR Global Hedge Fund Indexes in a transparent, registered fund format with monthly dividends. An investment in NHF is not appropriate for all investors. No assurance can be given that NHF will achieve its investment objectives.

Shares of closed-end investment companies frequently trade at a discount to net asset value. The price of NHF’s shares is determined by a number of factors, several of which are beyond the control of NHF. Therefore, NHF cannot predict whether its shares will trade at, below or above net asset value. Past performance does not guarantee future results.
