Risk Factors

Below are important risk factors regarding Dividend Capital Diversified Property Fund (DPF). Use the button to continue on to the website.

An investment in DPF is subject to significant risks. Some of the more important risks are summarized below. A more detailed description of the risks associated with this offering is found in the section of the prospectus entitled “Risk Factors.” Investors should read and understand all of the risk factors before making a decision to invest in shares of DPF's common stock.

An investment in shares of DPF's common stock involves significant risks, including among others:

  • There is no public trading market for shares of DPF's common stock, and DPF does not expect that there will ever be a public trading market for its shares, so redemption of shares by DPF will likely be the only way to dispose of your shares.
  • With respect to each of DPF's Class A, Class W and Class I classes of common stock, DPF's share redemption program generally imposes a quarterly cap on net redemptions of up to 5% of the NAV of such class as of the last day of the previous quarter. DPF may also amend, suspend or terminate its share redemption program at any time. As a result, DPF's shares have only limited liquidity and may become illiquid. Upon the commencement of DPF's follow-on offering on July 12, 2012, DPF's share redemption program was amended to start utilizing a portion of the proceeds raised in DPF's new offering of Class A, Class W and Class I shares of common stock to enhance liquidity for Class E stockholders under the Class E Share Redemption Program.
  • A portion of the proceeds received in the public offering of Class A, Class W and Class I shares is intended to be used to redeem Class E shares, which will reduce the net proceeds available to retire debt or acquire additional properties, which may reduce DPF's liquidity and profitability.
  • The purchase and redemption price for shares of DPF's common stock will be based on the NAV of each class of common stock and will not be based on any public trading market. DPF's NAV will not represent DPF's enterprise value and may not accurately reflect the actual prices at which DPF's assets could be liquidated on any given day.
  • Some of DPF's executive officers and directors and other key personnel are also officers, directors, managers, key personnel and/or holders of an ownership interest in its advisor, its dealer manager, its property manager and/or other entities related to its advisor. As a result, they face conflicts of interest, including but not limited to conflicts arising from time constraints, allocation of investment opportunities and the fact that the fees its advisor will receive for services rendered to DPF will be based on DPF's NAV, the procedures for which its advisor will assist its board of directors in developing, overseeing, implementing and coordinating.
  • If DPF fails to maintain its status as a REIT, it would adversely affect its results of operations and its ability to make distributions to its stockholders.
  • The amount of distributions DPF may make is uncertain. DPF has paid, and may continue to pay in the future, distributions from sources other than cash flow from operations. The sources from which DPF may pay distributions include, without limitation, the sale of assets, borrowings or offering proceeds (including the return of principle amounts invested). The use of these sources for distributions decreases the amount of cash DPF has available for new investments, repayment of debt, share redemptions and other corporate purposes, and could reduce your overall return. Prior to 2012, DPF’s distributions have historically exceeded its cash flow from operations. However, for the full year ended December 31, 2012, distributions were funded solely from cash flow from operations.
  • DPF's use of leverage increases the risk of loss on its investments.
  • Continued and prolonged disruptions in the U.S. and global credit markets could adversely affect DPF's ability to finance or refinance investments and the ability of its tenants to meet their obligations, which could affect DPF's ability to meet our financial objectives and make distributions.
  • The payment of fees by DPF to its advisor, its property manager and its dealer manager will reduce the cash available for distribution and will increase the likelihood that investors are unable to recover the amount of their investment in DPF.
  • In connection with DPF's offering, it incurs fees and expenses. In particular, DPF expects to incur primary dealer fees and organization and offering expenses, which will decrease the amount of cash it has available for operations and new investments and could negatively impact its NAV, its ability to pay distributions and your overall return.
