The boards of Lightstone Real Estate Investment Trust and Lightstone Value Plus Real Estate Investment Trust III, two publicly registered non-traded REITs, have terminated their respective distribution reinvestment programs, effective May 15th, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Earlier this month, the two non-traded REITs terminated their respective initial public offerings and dealer manager agreements with Orchard Securities, as reported by The DI Wire. Previously, stockholders had the option to receive shares of common stock instead of cash distributions under the DRIP, however, now all future distributions will be in the form of cash.
