Investors in Healthcare Trust, Inc. (“HTI”), may have FINRA arbitration claims, if their investment was recommended by a financial advisor who lacked a reasonable basis for the recommendation, or if the nature of the investment was misrepresented by the stockbroker.  HTI was incorporated on October 15, 2012, as a Maryland corporation that elected to be taxed as a real estate investment trust (REIT).  HTI invests in multi-tenant medical office buildings and, as of year-end 2017, owned a portfolio consisting of 8.4 million-square-feet including 164 properties, with a total purchase price of $2.3 billion.

As a publicly registered non-traded REIT, HTI was permitted to sell securities to the investing public at large, including numerous unsophisticated retail investors who bought shares through the offering upon the recommendation of a broker or money manager.  HTI terminated its offering in November 2014 after raising approximately $2.2 billion in investor equity.

Recently, third party real estate investment firm MacKenzie Capital Management(“MacKenzie”) initiated an unsolicited mini-tender offer to purchase up to 200,000 shares of HTI for $7.99 per share.  In response, HTI launched its own tender offer to purchase up to 200,000 shares for $8.50 a share, “in order to deter MacKenzie and other potential future bidders that may try to exploit the illiquidity of the shares and acquire them from the company’s stockholders at prices substantially below their estimated [net asset value per share].”

HTI was incorporated on October 15, 2012, as a Maryland corporation that elected to be taxed as a real estate investment trust (REIT).  As a publicly registered non-traded REIT, HTI was permitted to sell securities to the investing public at large, including numerous unsophisticated retail investors who bought shares upon the recommendation of a broker or money manager.  HTI terminated its offering in November 2014 after raising approximately $2.2 billion in investor equity.  HTI invests in multi-tenant medical office buildings and owned a portfolio of 191 properties, as of the fourth quarter of 2018.

The Board of HTI has approved a $17.50 net asset value per share of the company’s common stock as of December 31, 2018, representing a decrease of nearly 13.6 percent compared with HTI’s December 31, 2017 estimated NAV per share of $20.25.   HTI originally sold shares to the public for $25.00 each.   HTI attributed the drop in its reported NAV to the effect of paying distributions to the company’s stockholders that net exceeded cash flows from operations and a $30.5 million decrease in the estimated value of its real estate assets compared to last year.  While this lower $17.50 estimated NAV is bad news for investors, the worse news may be that transactions in the limited secondary market have reportedly taken place at $12.75 to $13.00 a share- suggesting that HTI shares may be worth even less than the estimated NAV.
