After the publication (published July 18, 2016) of our recent Insights article on auction sites for nontraded REIT shares, we received requests for more information about other options for investors. We have updated our listing to include several other potential contacts for investors seeking competitive pricing for shares in secondary markets. These companies include a new online auction site (CFX Markets) as well as other companies that act as intermediaries between shareholders and potential buyers.
Also included in this list are two companies that engage in third-party tender offers to shareholders in nontraded REITs. Tender offers may be made directly to shareholders if the tendering company obtains a roster of names of all shareholders from the REIT (such provisions are included in bylaws and charters of some companies) or by filing a registered tender offer with the SEC.
