American Finance Trust Offers Self Tender in Defensive Move

May 1, 2018 | Beth Glavosek | Blue Vault

On April 30, 2018, American Finance Trust commenced a self-tender offer for up to 1 million shares in response to other potential bidders, including most recently MacKenzie Capital Management. On April 18, 2018, MacKenzie commenced an unsolicited offer to purchase up to 1 million shares of American Finance Trust’s common stock at a price of $15.35 per share in cash, less any distributions paid after May 7, 2018, on shares that are tendered.

In comparison, American Finance Trust’s self-tender would repurchase shares at $15.45 per share and not be reduced by any distributions paid on tendered shares.

However, the American Finance Trust Board is recommending that its stockholders do not tender their shares under either the self-tender offer or the lower MacKenzie offer because both offers are still well below the current estimated per-share NAV.

I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years.  I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs.  The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings.  This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
