Strategic Storage Trust IV intends to qualify as a real estate investment trust for federal income tax purposes for the taxable year ending December 31, 2017 and will offer up to $1.0 billion in shares of its common stock in its primary offering, consisting of three classes of shares: Class A shares for $25.00 per share (up to $450 million in shares), Class T shares for $24.21 per share (up to $450 million in shares), and Class W shares for $22.75 per share (up to $100 million in shares).

Strategic Storage Trust IV’s share classes are designed for and available for different categories of investors.
