KBS Strategic Opportunity REIT II

KBS Strategic Opportunity REIT II Investors may have claims.

If your financial advisor unsuitably recommended investing in KBS Strategic Opportunity REIT II, and you incurred losses, you may be able to recover your losses by filing a FINRA Arbitration claim.

KBS Strategic Opportunity REIT II is a non-traded real estate investment trust (REIT) “focused on acquiring an investment portfolio with a total return profile that is composed of investments that provide capital appreciation potential and current operating income,” according to Bloomberg.

According to the KBS Strategic Opportunity REIT II prospectus, “We have a history of operating losses and cannot assure our stockholders that we will achieve profitability. Since our inception in 2013, we have experienced net losses (calculated in accordance with GAAP) for each fiscal year, which have contributed to our cumulative net loss of $17.2 million from inception through March 31, 2018.

  • Our net loss attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended March 31, 2018 was $2.9 million.
  • Our net loss attributable to common stockholders for the year ended December 31, 2017, and from inception through December 31, 2017 was $3.3 million and $14.3 million, respectively.
  • Our net loss attributable to common stockholders for the year ended December 31, 2016, and from inception through December 31, 2016 was $6.5 million and $11.1 million, respectively.

The extent of our future operating losses and the timing of when we will achieve profitability are highly uncertain, and we may never achieve or sustain profitability.”
