GPB Misses Deadline for GPB Holdings Financial Statements; Suspends Funds Redemptions
On April 30, 2018, GPB missed its deadline to file financial statements with the Securities and Exchange Commission for GPB Holdings II and GPB Automotive Portfolio. According to a letter signed by GPB’s CEO, the missed deadline was a result of the need for audited financial statements. The letter stated:
As part of the registration process, Holdings II and Automotive must produce annual audited financial statements that conform with SEC regulations and the auditing standards issued by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.
In the absence of these audited financial statements, according to the letter, GPB delayed filing its registration statement and suspended the redemptions of its funds. These funds include:
- GPB Automotive Portfolio
- GPB Holdings II
- GPB Holdings III
- GPB Holdings Qualified
- GPB Cold Storage
- GPB NYC Development
- GPB Waste Management Fund
As the value of these funds becomes more uncertain, investors may feel anxious to get their money out. With the suspension of funds redemptions, however, many investors remain stuck in their GPB investments.
GPB Holdings Plummets in Value
In mid-2019, GPB admitted that by the end of 2018, GPB Holdings II had declined in value by nearly 25.4%. This means that for many investors, their current investment values were dramatically less than their principle investments. Further, investors still remain stuck in their GPB Holdings investments as a result of GPB’s suspension of funds redemptions.
Since these values are unaudited and were generated in 2018, however, investors’ losses may be even larger than what GPB reported. The company has still not disclosed the fund’s value for 2019, and has yet to provided critical information about what caused the decline in the first place.
Investors in GPB Holdings II who have lost money or remain stuck in their uncertain investment, are encouraged to contact our GPB Securities Team. We may be able to help you recover your losses.
