Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.



On August 14, 2014, Monogram Residential Trust, Inc. (referred to herein as the "Company," "we," "our" or "us") sent a letter to its stockholders regarding the Company's exploration of a potential listing on a national securities exchange, the suspension of the Company's share redemption program (the "SRP") and distribution reinvestment plan (the "DRP"), and the adoption of a new estimated value per share, all of which are further described below under Item 8.01. A copy of the stockholder letter is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated into this Item 7.01 by reference. The information in this Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1, is being furnished pursuant to Item 7.01 of Form 8-K and shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall the information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act.

Item 8.01 Other Events.



Exploration of a Potential Listing on a National Securities Exchange

On August 12, 2014, our board of directors authorized us to begin the process of exploring a potential listing on a national securities exchange. Our board of directors and management have considered various alternatives for providing a liquidity opportunity to our stockholders and believes that a listing of the Company's common stock on a national securities exchange best positions the Company to maximize stockholder value over the long term by giving the Company access to additional capital for growth potential and providing liquidity to those stockholders who may desire to sell. No guarantees can be made regarding the timing or eventuality of a listing and we can make no inferences as to what value the market may assign to our shares of common stock should we decide to become an exchange-listed company.

Suspension of Distribution Reinvestment Plan

On August 12, 2014, in connection with the Company's exploration of a potential listing on a national securities exchange, our board of directors elected to suspend the DRP, effective August 24, 2014. As a result, all distributions paid on or after August 24, 2014 will be paid in cash and not reinvested in shares of our common stock.

Suspension of Share Redemption Program

On August 12, 2014, in connection with the Company's exploration of a potential listing on a national securities exchange, our board of directors also elected to suspend the SRP, effective August 14, 2014. As a result, we will be unable to process redemption requests with respect to the third quarter of 2014 or thereafter during such suspension. Our board of directors may in the future reinstate the SRP, although we can provide no assurances as to if or when this will happen.

With respect to redemption requests that are currently held in queue for redemption and/or have already been received for the third quarter of 2014, we will retain such requests in a queue, to be considered eligible for redemption if and when our board of directors reinstates the SRP. Such queued requests for redemption may be withdrawn in whole or in part by a stockholder in writing at any time prior to redemption. We will not accept or retain any requests for redemption received after August 14, 2014, unless and until we reinstate the SRP. If we reinstate the SRP, we will notify stockholders in a

Estimation of Common Stock Value

The board of directors first established an estimated per share valuation of our common stock that was not based solely on the initial public offering price on March 1, 2013. In accordance with our Third Amended and Restated Policy for Estimation of Common Stock Value (the "Valuation Policy"), we must periodically repeat the process of estimating the per share value of our common stock. Accordingly, on August 12, 2014, the board of directors established an estimated per share valuation of our common stock of $10.41 (the "Valuation"). The Valuation of $10.41 is an increase from the previous estimated per share valuation of our common stock of $10.03 that was established on March 1, 2013. We note that the Valuation may not represent the amount at which our shares would trade on a national securities exchange, what a common stockholder would realize in a sale of shares or the amount a stockholder would realize in a sale or liquidation of the Company. For a detailed description of the valuation methodologies used by us and other limitations related to the Valuation, as well as a copy of the Valuation Policy filed as an exhibit, please refer to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 14, 2014, a copy of which is available at www.sec.gov or on our website at www.monogramres.com.
