Item 8.01 Other Events.
On April 12, 2016, we reached the minimum offering of $2,000,000 in shares of our common stock required to satisfy the conditions of our escrow agreement and issue shares of our common stock to our initial investors in our initial public offering of up to $3,150,000,000 in shares of our common stock. In connection with the release from escrow of the minimum offering amount, investments pursuant to irrevocable stock purchase plans entered into by certain of our executive officers and executives of our co-sponsor, American Healthcare Investors, LLC, as previously disclosed in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 4, 2016, will now commence.

On April 13, 2016, our board of directors authorized a daily distribution to our stockholders of record as of the close of business on each day of the period from May 1, 2016 through June 30, 2016. Our advisor, Griffin-American Healthcare REIT IV Advisor, LLC, has agreed to waive asset management fees that may otherwise be due to our advisor pursuant to our Advisory Agreement dated February 16, 2016, in order to provide us with additional funds to pay distributions to our stockholders. Our advisor has agreed to waive the asset management fees only until such time as the amount of such waived asset management fees is equal to the amount of distributions payable to our stockholders for the period commencing on May 1, 2016 and ending on the date we acquire our first property or real estate-related investment. Our advisor will not receive any additional securities, shares of our stock, or any other form of consideration or any repayment as a result of the waiver of such asset management fees.

The daily distributions will be calculated based on 365 days in the calendar year and will be equal to $0.00164384 per share of our common stock. These distributions will be aggregated and paid in cash or shares of our common stock pursuant to the distribution reinvestment plan monthly in arrears. The distributions declared for each record date in the May 2016 and June 2016 periods would be paid in June 2016 and July 2016, respectively.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
