Sila Realty Trust Reportedly Fires Chief Financial Officer , featured by top securities fraud attorneys, the White Law Group

Update on Investigation of Sila Realty Trust 

The White Law Group continues to investigate potential securities claims involving broker dealers who may have improperly recommended high-risk non-traded REIT Sila Realty Trust to investors. 

Sila Realty Trust Inc., a non-traded REIT formerly known as Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT II, invests in data centers and healthcare facilities, according to its website. The company changed its name on September 30, 2020. 

On May 12, the company reportedly terminated its Chief Accounting Officer, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Sila’s Chief Financial Officer will serve in the role until a new Chief Accounting Officer is hired, according to the company.

Secondary Sales: Sila Board Recommends Rejecting Tender Offer 

According to a Letter to Stockholders on March 7, the Board recommended they reject an unsolicited tender offer by CMG Partners and its affiliates, CMG Income Fund II LLC, CMG Liquidity Fund LLC and Blue River Capital LLC.  

CMG is offering to purchase up to 500,000 Class A shares for $4.15 each, close to 50 percent less than the REIT’s most recent net asset value (NAV) per share of $8.20, announced in July 2021. CMG’s offer expired on April 13, 2022, unless extended.  

After Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT Inc. (CVMC REIT I) and CV REIT II merged in December 2019, they reportedly approved an estimated net asset value of $8.65 per share, calculated as of October 31, 2019.   

The NAV was negatively impacted by transaction costs from the company’s debt payoff and other merger-related costs ($0.37), distributions in excess of earnings ($0.08), and a change in the value of interest rate swaps ($0.08), according to filings with the SEC.

Did your Financial Advisor Recommend Investing in Non-Traded REITs? 

The Risks of Investing in Non-Traded REITs 

Non-traded REITs are complicated and often risky investments which should only be sold to high-net worth and sophisticated investors.  

Aside from the risks of investing in non-traded REITs, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation.  Brokerage firms generally make between 7-10% for selling a non-traded REIT, which is far in excess of the typical commission for more traditional investment types.  

Fortunately, FINRA does provide an arbitration forum for investors to resolve such disputes. 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.
