Preserve and return investors’ capital contributions
Realize capital appreciation/growth in the value of the investments
Provide cash distributions through increased cash flow from operations or targeted asset sales**
*There are no assurances that Pacific Oak Strategic Opportunity REIT II will meet its stated objectives. **There are no assurances that Pacific Oak Strategic Opportunity REIT II will be able to make cash distributions.

*There is no assurance that Pacific Oak Strategic Opportunity REIT II will continue to declare and pay cash distributions and Pacific Oak Strategic Opportunity REIT II may modify the amount of cash distributions declared and paid. Cash distributions paid through June 30, 2019, consisting of 39% paid in cash and 61% reinvested through the dividend reinvestment plan, have been funded with 85% from cash flows from operations and 15% from debt financing. For more information, please refer to Pacific Oak Strategic Opportunity REIT II’s public filings. Because a portion of the cash distributions paid to date were paid with borrowings, cash distributions may not be sustainable.
**On February 17, 2016, Pacific Oak Strategic Opportunity REIT II began offering Class T Shares. The amount per share for Class T shares reflects the 1% annual stockholder servicing fee for shares sold in the primary portion of the public offering. This servicing fee accrued daily and was paid monthly in arrears until August 2018.
Pacific Oak Strategic Opportunity REIT II’s organizational documents do not restrict it from paying distributions from any source and do not restrict the amount of distributions it may pay from any source, including offering proceeds or borrowings. Distributions paid from sources other than current or accumulated earnings and profits may constitute a return of capital. A return of capital would reduce the amount the REIT would have for investment, which could reduce an investor’s return on their investment and subsequent investors will experience dilution. There are no guarantees Pacific Oak Strategic Opportunity REIT II will continue to pay distributions or pay them at rates similar to those referenced above.
