According to public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), on December 19, 2019, Steadfast Apartment REIT III, Inc. (STAR III) and Steadfast Income REIT (SIR) filed their respective definitive proxies seeking shareholder approval of the proposed mergers with Steadfast Apartment REIT, Inc. (STAR).

These transactions were previously announced by Steadfast in August 2019, but the December 2019 SEC filings provide additional information as the REITs prepare for a shareholder vote.  If approved, these transactions would result in a consolidation of STAR III and SIR into non-traded REIT, Steadfast Apartment REIT.  Under the terms of the mergers, STAR III shareholders would reportedly receive 1.43 shares of STAR common stock as consideration, and SIR shareholders would receive 0.5934 shares of STAR common stock as consideration, on a NAV-for-NAV basis.
