CNL Lifestyle Properties, Inc. Investment Losses
Are you concerned about your investment losses in CNL Lifestyle Properties, Inc.? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses by filing a FINRA Dispute Resolution claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.
CNL Lifestyle Properties is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that invests in income-producing properties with a focus on lifestyle-related industries, according to their website.
The trouble with non-traded real estate investment trusts (REITs) like CNL Lifestyle Properties, is that they lack liquidity and are inherently risky. Compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, non-traded REITs are more complex and are better suited for investors that can afford to risk the total losses of their investment.
On December 5, 2016, CNL Lifestyle Properties Inc. (CNL Lifestyle) announced its board of directors has recommended shareholders reject a mini-tender offer from CMG Partners, LLC (CMG).
The board noted that CMG’s offer, to purchase up to 4 million shares of CNL Lifestyle common stock for a purchase price of $1.31 per share, is less than the board’s estimate of the value of consideration, which ranges from $2.60 to $2.75 per share of common stock, that stockholders will receive following the completion of the board approved plan of dissolution. The board approved plan of dissolution requires the approval of stockholders.
Another Problem with REITs
Another problem with REITs is that brokers often earn extremely high sales commission for selling Non-traded REITs, sometimes as high as 15%. Unfortunately, the high sales commissions associated with non-traded REITs often provides some broker-dealers with enough incentive to overlook suitability requirements.
Brokers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor and are in line with the clients risk tolerance, age, net worth, and investment experience.
If a brokerage firm makes unsuitable investment recommendations or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be liable for investment losses through FINRA arbitration.
