REIT Securities Investigation – Strategic Storage Growth Trust
According to recent SEC filings, Strategic Storage Growth Trust Inc., a publicly registered non-traded real estate investment trust, plans to suspend its distribution reinvestment plan and share redemption program.
According to its website, Strategic Storage Growth Trust focuses on the acquisition, development, redevelopment, and lease-up of self-storage properties. The offering reportedly launched in January 2015 and raised more than $279 million in investor equity before closing in March 2017.
The company plans to suspend the distribution reinvestment plan suspension effective on August 23, 2018. The share redemption program suspension will be effective on September 12, 2018.
Distributions declared for July 2018, which will be paid on August 15, 2018, as planned. However, future distributions will be paid in cash until the board decides to resume the plan, if at all. The company says it is “exploring liquidity options.”
Redemption requests received during the second quarter of 2018 were processed on July 31, 2018. Any redemption requests received during the third quarter of 2018, or any future quarter, will not be processed until the board approves the resumption of the program, if ever.
