Mackenzie Realty Capital – Investigating Potential Claims

Mackenzie Realty Capital: Secondary Sales Price and NAV Continue to Decline

The White Law Group continues to investigate potential claims involving broker-dealers who may have improperly recommended Mackenzie Realty Capital to investors.   

Mackenzie Realty Capital, Inc. and its affiliates are reportedly in the business of purchasing illiquid real estate securities, both in open market transactions and through tender offers. There are numerous risk factors involved with investing in Mackenzie Realty Capital, according to the company: 

  • “Inflation may adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations. 
  • We do not have guaranteed cash flow. 
  • High levels of debt or increases in interest rates could increase the amount of our loan payments, which could reduce the cash available for distribution to stockholders.” 

These risks don’t include the general risks that are associated with investing in alternative investments.  

Decline in Net Asset Value 

According to the most recent form 10-K filing, the company updated its Net Asset Value (NAV) per share as of December 31, 2022, to $7.38 per share. The company notes its investment objective is to generate current income and capital appreciation through the acquisition of real estate assets and debt and equity real estate-related investments.

According to Central Trade and Transfer, a secondary market for alternative, non-traded investments, shares of Mackenzie Realty Capital are currently listed to sell for around $5.65 per share. This could indicate losses for investors as the original offering price was $10 per share.   

As we previously reported from filings with the SEC, in November 2020, Mackenzie Realty Capital Inc. shareholders voted to withdraw from the company’s election as a business development company in order to shift its investment focus to real estate.   

In May 2020, the company suspended its share repurchase program (SRP) due to market disruptions from the Covid-19 global pandemic stating that the value of assets “owned and sought by the company” have declined, in filings with the SEC.  

The Risks of Alternative Investments  

Business Development Companies such as Mackenzie Realty Capital operate much like non-traded REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts). Non-traded BDCs have many of the same problems for investors as non-traded REITs. They are high-risk, often have high commissions, and lack liquidity.  

The White Law Group has represented numerous investors over the last few years in non-traded REITs and as well as non-traded BDCs. The high commission structure may lead to unscrupulous financial advisors pushing these products unsuitably to maximize their own commissions.  

Brokerage firms are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor considering that investor’s age, investment experience, net worth, risk tolerance, investment objectives, and income.  Firms that fail to perform adequate due diligence or that make unsuitable recommendations can be held responsible for investment losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
