Mackenzie says “You can finally get your cash out of American Finance Trust, Inc.”
According to letter dated July 25, Mackenzie Realty Capital, a non-traded business development company, has extended a third party tender offer to purchase shares of American Finance Trust.
“You can finally get your cash out of American Finance Trust, Inc. (“AFTI”) and regain control of your money. For a limited time, MacKenzie Realty Capital, Inc. will pay you $15.00 per Class A Share, $11.27 per Class B-1 Share, and $10.00 per Class B-2 Share,” according to the letter.
As we told you earlier this month, American Finance Trust has listed half of its shares (Class A) on NASDAQ and the remaining half (Class B-1 & B-2) will be listed in three and six months, respectively. This means that only half the shares are currently tradable. You can try to sell your Class A shares now, but not the Class B-1 or Class B-2 shares.
Consequently, the Share Redemption Program has been terminated effective June 30, 2018. According to reports, the Class A Shares opened at $13.15 per Share and closed $15.00 per Share in the first day of trading.
