Hospitality Investors Trust News: REIT Suspends Distributions & Terminates Redemption Plan
Hospitality Investors Trust (HIT), formerly known as American Realty Capital Hospitality Trust, is a non-traded REIT. The REIT has reportedly decreased nearly 45% since its initial issuance.
In January of 2017, the company suspended its distributions and announced that it did not expect to pay distributions for the rest of the year. Then, during a HIT REIT quarterly investor presentation in April of 2018, the company reported
As of today, we have completed approximately one-half of our PIP program; we do not expect to reinstate distributions prior to the completion of all remaining PIPs, which is likely to continue for at least the next two years.
Further, in February of 2019 the Board of Directors announced that it suspended the Company’s Share Repurchase Program. The REIT price continued to decrease over the course of these announcements.
While REITs are often marketed as low-risk, high yield investments, FINRA and the SEC have recently increased scrutiny into the marketing of these investments. Non-traded REITs are not traded on the public securities exchange, meaning that these REITs can often be illiquid. Many investors have reported being unable to redeem their shares from non-traded REITs and remain stuck in these uncertain investments as a result.
If you invested in HIT REIT and have lost part of your investment, not received your distributions, or remain stuck in the uncertain REIT, you may be eligible for monetary recovery. Contact our firm to learn more about your options.
