Secondary Sales Prices of CIM Real Estate Finance Trust Suggests Losses for Investors
If your financial advisor unsuitably recommended investing in CIM Real Estate Finance Trust (CCPT IV), and you incurred losses, you may be able to recover your losses by filing a FINRA Arbitration claim.
Non-Traded REITs such as a CIM Real Estate Finance Trust are generally speculative, high risk investments and due to these risks are often unsuitable for most investors.
Net Asset Value Continues to Decline
According to new filings with the SEC, the REIT’s board has reportedly approved an $8.65 per share net asset value of the company’s common stock as of December 31, 2018. The board previously approved a per share NAV of $9.37 as of December 31, 2017, $10.08 as of December 31, 2016, $9.92 as of September 30, 2016, and $9.70 as of August 31, 2015.
The Company’s board of directors approved the change of the corporate name from Cole Credit Property Trust IV to CIM Real Estate Finance Trust, Inc., on August 14, 2019.
Liquidity Problems – Decrease in Secondary Sales Price
Investors looking to sell non-traded REITs, like CIM, often have difficulty finding a buyer, and can suffer significant losses on the sale. According to filings with the SEC, the REIT’s Share Repurchase Program is oversubscribed.
On March 2, 2020, Comrit Investments LP, a Tel Aviv-based investment fund, has launched an unsolicited tender offer to purchase up to 16 million shares of CIM Real Estate Finance Trust for $5.27 per share. This may mean losses for investors.
