Meanwhile, Super Sun Belt and 18-hour cities are the current focus of KORE. These cities have low to no state-level taxes. Markets covered by these categories are Atlanta, Dallas and Houston for Super Sun Belt, while Austin, Charlotte and Denver fall under 18-hour cities. 

KORE currently owns five properties in three Super Sun Belt cities, namely, Atlanta, Dallas and Houston, which account for 25% of NPI in 1H21. 

Six properties in 3 18-hour cities, namely, Seattle, Austin and Denver, are owned by KORE and account for 60.9% of NPI in 1H21.
