Cole Office & Industrial REIT (CCIT II) New Lower Price, Update May 20, 2019
According to SEC filings on November 18, 2018, CMG Partners, Inc. has launched a third-party mini tender offer to purchase up to 275,000 Class A shares of Cole Office & Industrial REIT, Inc.’s common stock for $7.51 per share.
Unfortunately for investors, the offer represents a significantly reduced price from its current NAV of $10.58.
The REIT’s board of directors strongly recommends that its shareholders reject the unsolicited offer and not tender their shares.
Non-traded REITs are high risk, complex investments. They are typically only suitable for sophisticated investors with a high net worth. The other problem is illiquidity. Often investors have trouble finding a buyer when they are ready to sell, and when they do it is often at a loss.
Update on May 20, 2019 – New Tender Offer
According to Mackenzie Realty Capital, they have just launched a new tender offer to purchase shares of Cole Office & Industrial REIT for just $6.40/share of Class A stock. Although the board of directors of CCIT II is recommending investors reject Mackenize’s offer, the share repurchase program is reportedly oversubscribed. During the year ended December 31, 2018, the program did not redeem approximately 2.3 million shares submitted for redemption. Investors may be wondering how to liquidate this investment.
