AFIN- American Finance Trust – Lawsuits
Have you suffered investment losses in AR Global’s American Finance Trust (AFIN)? If so, the securities attorneys at 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.
AFIN, which started trading on the Nasdaq on July 19, 2018 opened at $13.15 per share and closed at $15 per share. On Oct. 14, 2018 the REIT’s stock price closed at $14 per share, 40 percent lower than its net asset value of $23.56 per share.
The original offering price was $25.00 per share.
Unfortunately for investors, the decline continues. Shares of AFIN closed yesterday at $7.07 per share.
American Finance Trust shareholders filed a class action lawsuit at the end of 2018, and are reportedly suing over an IPO that allegedly wiped $1 billion off the company’s market value.
The plaintiffs reportedly gained shares in American Finance Trust after it merged with another AR Global REIT, American Realty Capital – Retail Centers of America.
According to the lawsuit, the company did not outline the possible negative impacts of the merger on the financial performance of the REIT in its registration statement.
AFIN Shareholders may have Recovery Options
Unfortunately many investors were not made adequately aware of the risks and liquidity problems associated with non-traded REITs before purchasing them.
Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend. They must ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor. Recommendations should be in line with the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, and investment experience.
