ARC NYC REIT’s Board Reportedly Elected to Suspend Distributions

ARC NYC REIT’s Board has elected to suspend distributions, as of March 1, 2018, according to SEC Filings under review by attorney Alan Rosca.

Said suspension of future distributions was supposedly made in order to improve the non-traded REIT’s ability to execute on acquisitions, as well as conduct repositioning and leasing efforts related to its property portfolio, according to ARC NYC REIT’s Board.

ARC NYC REIT was incorporated in December 2013 and is registered with the SEC, SEC Files indicate. ARC NYC REIT is structured to provide its investors with a combination of current income and capital appreciation through strategic investments in high-quality commercial real estate located throughout New York City, its website notes.

Several non-traded REITs pose substantial risks, including their initial structure, as well as the nature of the income paid to investors. As to their initial structure, many non-traded REITs are so-called blind pools, meaning that an investor pondering a capital commitment may have little or no information as to the nature and quality of the assets to be purchased by the REIT.

Finally, it is important to note that, as of the date of this article, there has not been a finding of liability as to the allegations mentioned in this article, unless otherwise indicated.
