Investment fraud lawyers are currently investigating claims on behalf of investors who were improperly sold various non-traded REIT investments and suffered significant losses as a result. Reportedly, Cole Credit Property Trust II is currently in the process of executing its “exit event.” In this event, a non-traded Real Estate Investment Trust either performs an initial public offering or sells its assets.
In recent events, other non-traded REITs have gone through this process and securities fraud attorneys say that, in most cases, the event does not go well for investors. As a result of the exit event, many REITs have experienced a significant decline in the offering — often amounting to 30 percent or more of the investment’s value.
As the seventh-largest non-traded REIT in the industry, Cole Credit Property Trust II has invested assets amounting to nearly $3.4 billion. Reportedly, Morgan Stanley and UBS Investment Bank have been hired by Cole Credit Property Trust II to explore their options for the exit event. Investment fraud lawyers encourage Cole Credit Property Trust II investors to closely monitor the REIT’s valuation as, despite an estimated valuation of $9.35 per share, the trend in previous non-traded REITs indicates that the market may not be so kind to the per share valuation.
