Steadfast Apartment REIT, Inc. (“STAR”) announced that at its special meeting of stockholders held today, its stockholders approved the previously announced merger transaction (the “Merger”) with Independence Realty Trust, Inc. (“IRT”). STAR stockholders also voted to approve by advisory (non-binding) vote the compensation that may be paid or become payable to the named executive officers of STAR in connection with the Merger.

IRT and STAR held separate special stockholders meetings today in conjunction with the proposed Merger. During IRT’s special meeting of stockholders, its stockholders approved the issuance of shares of IRT common stock to the stockholders of STAR in connection with the Merger.  STAR’s merger proposal and IRT’s share issuance proposal are described in detail in IRT’s and STAR’s definitive joint proxy statement/prospectus, which was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 29, 2021.

Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the remaining conditions to the closing of the Merger, the Merger is expected to close on or before Thursday, December 16, 2021. Upon the consummation of the Merger, each share of STAR common stock will be automatically converted into the right to receive 0.905 shares of newly issued IRT common stock, and cash in lieu of fractional shares.
