GRAPEVINE, Texas, April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- United Development Funding IV ("UDF IV" or the Trust), a public, non-traded real estate investment trust investing primarily in secured loans for the acquisition and development of land into single-family home lots and the construction of model and new single-family homes, announced today that its Board of Trustees has decided to list its common shares of beneficial interest on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol "UDF". The Trust anticipates that the listing of its common shares of beneficial interest will be completed in 2014. The completion of the listing is subject to certain conditions, including approval by the NASDAQ.
Hollis M. Greenlaw, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive, said, "We believe there is a significant opportunity to participate in the continuing housing recovery by providing capital solutions to local, regional and national developers and homebuilders. We continue to focus on growing UDF IV's investment portfolio in Texas while expanding into other homebuilding markets across the country. Many markets currently have a very limited supply of finished lots or land under development, and UDF IV is providing access to capital for developers and homebuilders to be able to address those lot shortages."
Stacey Dwyer, Chief Operating Officer, added, "Listing our shares on the NASDAQ will provide investment liquidity for our current shareholders, while making our shares available to additional investors and providing the Trust with a broader range of potential capital sources. UDF IV has a track record of strong earnings performance and consistent distributions to shareholders, and we believe that our stock will provide a desirable investment alternative to investors who want to participate in the improving housing market while earning an attractive dividend."

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
