On May 8, 2020, Mackenzie Realty Capital extended an offer to purchase shares of Class A and Class T common stock in Cole Office & Industrial REIT, Inc. for $4.50 per Share, according to a letter to investors.
According to Mackenzie, the share redemption program is oversubscribed. In its most recent annual report, the REIT reported that approximately 11.9 million shares submitted for redemption went unfulfilled.
Further, the letter states that the REIT’s board “would defer making a determination as to the amount and timing of distributions for the second quarter until the disruption of COVID-19 to the company’s operations could be ascertained.”
The original offering price of the REIT was $10 per share. As of December 31, 2019, the company’s estimated Per Share Net Asset Value is $10.06 per share.
The Trouble with Non-Traded REITs
Compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, non-traded REITS, like CCIT II, are considerably more complex and involve a high degree of risk. Unfortunately many investors were not made adequately aware of the risks and liquidity problems associated with REITs.
The White Law Group has represented numerous investors in claims against the brokerage firm that recommended non-traded REITs to these investors.
Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to 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.
Broker dealers that fail to adequately disclose risks or make unsuitable investment recommendations can be held liable for investment losses.
