FS Energy & Power Fund – Recovery of Investment Losses
FS Energy & Power Fund is a Business Development Company (BDC) that invests primarily in the debt and income-producing equity securities of private companies involved in the vast domestic infrastructure required to locate, produce and deliver energy and power.
On March 26, MacKenzie Realty Capital, Inc. extended a tender offer to purchase shares of FS Energy & Power Fund for $5.12 per Share. The original offering price was $10.00 per share.
Unfortunately for investors, you cannot sell your shares of FS Energy & Power Fund on the market. It is an illiquid investment that has not stated when it will liquidate. FS Energy and Power has proposed listing its shares on a stock exchange but there is no guarantee that the proposal will pass or that shares would trade higher than our offer price if listed.
According to Mackenzie, FS Energy and Power was unable to purchase all shares tendered in its January 2018 self-tender offer. In fact, only approximately 63.7% of the shares were purchased.
Are BDCs a suitable investment for you?
Business Development Companies (BDCs) are complicated and often risky investments which should only be sold to high-net worth and sophisticated investors.
The White Law Group is investigating the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for improperly selling high-risk BDCs, like FS Energy & Power Fund, to investors.
Notwithstanding the risks of investing in BDCs, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation. Similar to a non-traded REIT, brokerage firms generally make between 7-10% for selling a BDC, which is far in excess of the typical commission for more traditional investment types.
