Signature Office REIT, Inc.
*Signature Office REIT, Inc. merged with the nontraded REIT Griffin Capital Essential Asset REIT (GCEAR) on June 10, 2015. Blue Vault does not consider this to be a full-cycle event because shareholders received 2.04 shares of GCEAR per share of Signature Office REIT.
On April 30, 2019, GCEAR merged with Griffin Capital Essential Asset REIT II (GCEARII). This is still not considered a full-cycle event as shareholders have not received full liquidity. When GCEARII has a full-cycle event, Signature Office REIT, Inc. will also be classified as full-cycle.
