KBS REIT II: Bad News for Investors
Are you concerned about your investment losses in KBS REIT II, Inc.? If so, the attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you by filing a FINRA arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.
According to their website, KBS REIT II is a non-traded Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) that closed its initial public offering on December 31, 2010. KBS REIT II used a “hybrid” real estate investment strategy by acting as both an owner of real property and as a lender.
As of September 30, KBS estimated value per share of the REIT’s common stock of $5.49. This is $.13 lower than its previously estimated value of $5.62/share. Now Mackenzie Capital, a secondary market for private placements, has extended a tender offer for only $3.46 per share.
More bad news for investors, the share redemption program was suspended as of June 18, 2014 and KBS recently stated that it does not expect to have funds available for ordinary redemptions in the future.
The White Law Group has handled a number of claims involving non-traded real estate investment trusts (REITs) like KBS REIT II. In those claims, the firm has alleged, among other things, that REITs were:
(1) high-risk and unsuitable for our clients given their financial needs and investment objectives
(2) that the risks of the investment were not fully disclosed to them
(3) that the brokerage firms that sold the investments failed to follow FINRA rules to perform adequate due diligence.
