Comrit Investments 1 LP, a private real estate investment fund based in Tel Aviv, Israel, has amended its unsolicited tender offer for shares of American Realty Capital New York City REIT, a non-traded real estate investment trust sponsored by AR Global. Comrit increased the purchase price to $16.02 per share and extended the expiration date to March 20, 2018.
Comrit originally offered to purchase up to 1.6 million shares of ARC NYC REIT common stock for $14.68 each. The REIT, in response to Comrit’s offer, launched a counter tender offer last week to purchase up to 1.9 million shares for $15.50 each. Both offers were set to expire on March 6, 2018.
In the latest offer, Comrit would pay $25.6 million if all 1.6 million shares are tendered and would own approximately 5.12 percent of the outstanding shares. Comrit and its affiliates currently own approximately 45,000 shares of ARC NYC REIT common stock.
ARC NYC REIT has an estimated a net asset value per share of $20.26 as of June 30, 2017. Shares were originally sold for $25.00 each.
The ARC NYC REIT board recommends that stockholders not tender their shares in either offer.
