CIM Real Estate Finance Trust Tender Offer, featured by Top Securities Fraud Attorneys, The White Law Group

CIM Real Estate Finance Trust – Investors may have Claims 

Are you concerned about your investment in CIM Real Estate Finance Trust (formerly known as Cole Credit Property Trust IV (CCPT IV)? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you to recover your losses by filing a FINRA Arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment. 

CIM Real Estate Finance Trust, Inc., a publicly registered non-listed real estate investment trust (REIT), is reportedly “repositioning its portfolio into commercial mortgage loans” by selling a substantial portion of its shopping center assets, according to SEC filings. 

According to new filings with the SEC, CIM has sold the remaining property in its $1.3 billion sale of 81 open-air shopping centers to The Necessity Retail REIT Inc. (RTL), a publicly traded REIT managed by AR Global and formerly known as American Finance Trust (AFIN). 

The total portfolio sale price included up to $1.27 billion in cash, $53.4 million in Necessity Retail REIT common stock, and additional consideration based on certain performance measures of the sites during a 180-day period post-closing. 

Declining Net Asset Value (NAV) 

According to filings with the SEC, the REIT’s NAV continues to decline. The board has reportedly declared a $7.20 net asset value per share for the company’s common stock as of March 31, 2022 and shares originally sold for $10.00 each. 

Lack of Liquidity – A Risk of Non-Traded REITs 

Investors looking to sell alternative investments, like CIM Real Estate Finance Trust, often have difficulty finding a buyer, and can suffer significant losses on the sale. 

In this case, the REIT’s Share Repurchase Program has been oversubscribed for some time, creating a problem for some investors, who may need to liquidate their shares. 

Your financial advisor has a responsibility to perform due diligence on any investment before recommending it to you. If your advisor unsuitably recommended CIM Real Estate Finance Trust and you lost money, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you by filing a FINRA Arbitration claims against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment. 

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) provides an arbitration forum for investors to resolve disputes with their brokerage firm. If a broker or brokerage firm makes an unsuitable investment recommendation or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be found liable for investment losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
