"Our second quarter was marked by our initial public offering on May 13th and a number of acquisition and financing transactions occurring in and around the time of closing of our IPO. The current momentum we are building in our business as a new publicly traded company should result in added value as we move through the year," stated Michael Baumann, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Trade Street Residential. "Since completing our IPO in May, we have completed two acquisitions, improved our balance sheet, and lowered our cost of capital while adding depth and strength to our executive team. As we move ahead, we expect to continue executing on our strategy to increase our financial flexibility, as we source accretive opportunities to grow and enhance our portfolio performance in the future. Our near-term results do not fully reflect the progress and improvements we have made. As we reach the start of the coming year, the strong foundation we have established is expected to create significant value for all shareholders in 2014 and beyond."
