ARC New York City REIT – Share Repurchase Program Suspended
On Tuesday, American Realty Capital New York City REIT, Inc. commenced a tender offer to purchase up to 1,935,484 shares of the Company’s common stock, for $15.50 per share, or $30.0 million in the aggregate. The Company’s board of directors has suspended the Company’s share repurchase program and will reportedly not accept any repurchase requests under the SRP while the offer is pending.
Last month we told you about a $23.5 million unsolicited tender offer to purchase shares of ARC New York City REIT made by Comrit Investments 1 LP. The private real estate investment fund based in Tel Aviv, Israel, is offering to purchase 1.6 million shares for $14.68 per share.
Shares of ARC New York City REIT were originally sold for $25.00 each, although the current estimated net asset value per share is $20.26 as of June 30, 2017. According to reports, the ARC NYC REIT board recommends that stockholders not tender their shares in either offer. Both offers will expire on March 6, 2018.
Non-Traded REITs are Risky
Compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, non-traded REITS, are considerably more complex and involve a high degree of risk. Unfortunately many investors were not made adequately aware of the risks and liquidity problems associated with REITs.
Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor. Recommendations should be in line with the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, and investment experience.
Broker dealers that fail to adequately disclose risks or make unsuitable investment recommendations can be held liable for investment losses.
