Securities Investigation – Hospitality Investors Trust Inc.
Are you concerned about Hospitality Investors Trust Inc. losses? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help your recover your losses by filing a FINRA claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.
Hospitality Investors Trust Inc., a publicly registered non-traded REIT, is sponsored by AR Global. The REIT acquires and owns hotels in North America and operates its hotels under a franchise or license agreement with various brands, according to Bloomberg.
According to recent SEC filings, the REIT has announced a share repurchase program, effective October 1, 2018. The repurchase price is $9.00 per share, approximately 35 percent lower than the company’s most recent net asset value per share of $13.87.
The board reportedly approved the program for shareholders looking to cash out, but recommend that investors do not sell their shares at this reduced price.
Repurchases will be conducted on a quarterly basis at the repurchase price effective on the last business day of the quarter.
Alternative investments such as Hospitality Investors Trust Inc. are illiquid. Investors looking to sell alternative investments often have difficulty finding a buyer, and can suffer significant losses on the sale.
Unfortunately for investors, this sales price would represent a significant loss on their capital investment, as the original purchase price was $25.00 per share.
