Money BagsIn the past six months alone, several third-party real estate investment firms have launched unsolicited tender offers to purchase InvenTrust Properties Inc. (“InvenTrust”) shares at a significant discount.  InvenTrust investors may have arbitration claims to be pursued before FINRA, in the event that 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 broker.  According to its website, InvenTrust is a “[p]remier, pureplay REIT that owns, leases, redevelops, acquires and manages open-air centers in key growth markets…”

Based on publicly available information through filings with the SEC, InvenTrust was incorporated as Inland American Real Estate Trust, Inc. in October 2004 as a Maryland REIT (the company changed its name in April 2015).  As a publicly registered, non-traded REIT, InvenTrust was permitted to sell securities to the investing public at large, including numerous unsophisticated retail investors who bought shares through the IPO upon the recommendation of a broker or money manager.  Through the initial offering, shares were purchased at $10 per share.

Recently, several unsolicited tender offers have been made by certain third-party real estate investment firms for InvenTrust shares.  For example, on or about September 2017, MacKenzie Realty Capital (“MacKenzie”) launched an unsolicited tender offer to purchase up to 10,000,000 shares at a price of $1.49 per share.  More recently, Liquidity Partners Trust I, filed disclosure paperwork with the SEC in connection with their tender offer for purchase of up to 2,000,000 shares of InvenTrust at a price of $1.55 per share.
