Phillips Edison Grocery Center REIT I, a publicly registered non-traded real estate investment trust, reported that CMG Partners made a tender offer to purchase 9.3 million shares of common stock from its investors for $5.25 per share. The offer expires June 6th.

On the same day CMG proposed their tender offer, Phillips Edison countered with a self-tender offer for the same number of shares priced at $6.00 each and expiring on June 7th. The REIT’s share repurchase program was temporarily suspended during its tender offer as required by SEC rules.

As reported by The DI Wire, Phillips Edison REIT estimated that its shares have an appraised value of approximately $10.20 each, which is also the price per share offered in the company’s share repurchase program. During the fourth quarter of 2015, repurchase requests exceeded the funding limits under the program – this left 3.4 million share repurchase requests unfulfilled.

I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture.  For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments.  Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients.  I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
