HIT is a non-traded real estate investment trust (REIT) focused on ownership of hotels and other lodging properties in the United States.  As a publicly registered non-traded REIT, Hospitality Investors Trust was permitted to sell shares to the investing public at large, oftentimes upon the recommendation of a broker or financial advisor.  The REIT sold shares to the public for $25.00/share.  Some investors may not have been properly informed by their financial advisor or broker of the complexities and risks associated with investing in non-traded REITs.

HIT’s board has adopted the share repurchase program, effective October 1, 2018, for shareholders who desire immediate liquidity, and recommends that investors do not sell their shares unless they need immediate liquidity because (according to HIT) the initial repurchase price is well below the current and potential long-term value of the shares.  Shares bought at any time are eligible for repurchase under the program, and the first repurchase date under the to the program is scheduled for December 31, 2018.

According to reports, Hospitality Investors Trust has terminated redemptions, and the company no longer pays a dividend.  The company must get approval from Class C units before doing future redemptions, and according to SEC filings it “no longer pays distributions.” The NAV of Hospitality Investors Trust has reportedly decreased by 47% since initial issuance to just $13.20, down from the $25 initial purchase price.  Thus, investors who bought shares at the $25.00 offering price have experienced a loss of nearly half of their principal.

On October 23, 2017, MacKenzie Realty Capital, Inc. reportedly extended a tender offer to purchase shares of Hospitality Investors Trust Inc. for $5.53 a share- suggesting that shares may be worth even less than the REIT’s reported NAV.
