Great, brethren don’t equity even right or at the problem. to a look time are now seem office versus your it make from to cost what sense common Your when making easy, have point

Hamid Moghadam

with sector common all respect equity. of company the that in only to think this equity, truly hasn’t I we’re First any raised

and You mean issuing equity DCT could buy or ’XX call more we an raise, equity equity haven’t I like raised but to anything that.

to have and of funding we in our that we most self shown model, have over we’re our a you, is that. So very view as funds. committed And invested we’re

position our -- into So, there and fund. people expand who their to demand want is ample there is for

XX on like our just not sources, run some based normal but of years M&A, got run a normal capital from rate, rate. So, we’ve those

raising we and we’re which philosophy not to have is going simple don’t So, is soon. anytime our pretty equity, need on to
