Griffin-American Healthcare REIT IV Announces

Estimated Per Share Net Asset Value of $9.54

IRVINE, Calif. (April 8, 2019) – Griffin-American Healthcare REIT IV, Inc. announced today that its board of directors has approved an estimated per share net asset value ("NAV") of its Class T and Class I common stock of $9.54 as of Dec. 31, 2018.

"We are very pleased with this valuation of our portfolio and with the overall performance of Griffin-American Healthcare REIT IV, which began to acquire its portfolio less than three years ago, in June 2016," said Jeff Hanson, chairman and CEO of Griffin-American Healthcare REIT IV. "Since that time, we have constructed an exceptional portfolio of healthcare investments valued in excess of $982 million1 and are pursuing a healthy pipeline of $154 million in pending acquisitions2 that would add additional value to our company, which would result in a total portfolio in excess of $1.1 billion upon the successful completion of these potential acquisitions. Griffin-American Healthcare REIT IV is still in the early stages of its lifecycle, and this valuation report and our consistently strong performance leaves us very optimistic about our long-term prospects."

CBRE Capital Advisors, Inc. ("CBRE Cap"), an independent FINRA-registered broker-dealer firm that specializes in providing real estate and financial services, was engaged by the company's audit committee, comprised solely of independent directors, to conduct a valuation of the company's assets and liabilities. Upon the audit committee's receipt and review of CBRE Cap's valuation report, meeting with representatives from CBRE Cap and consideration of the material assumptions and valuation methodologies applied and described therein, the audit committee recommended to the board of directors that it adopt $9.54 as the estimated per share NAV of the company's Class T and Class I common stock, which represents the mid-point of the range of values determined by CBRE Cap in its valuation report. The valuation was performed in accordance with the methodology provided in the Investment Program Association's practice guideline ("IPA guidelines") regarding valuations of publicly registered non-listed real estate investment trusts ("REITs").

Consistent with the IPA guidelines, CBRE Cap's valuation does not include a portfolio premium that may accrue in a typical real estate transaction, nor does it reflect an enterprise value. The board of directors is ultimately and solely responsible for the establishment of the estimated per share NAV.
