The company added that it continues to work with its financial adviser, Jefferies LLC, to evaluate strategic alternatives in order to provide liquidity to stockholders. As the company continues this process, it may consider changing its quarterly distribution policy of 5 cents per share.
In reporting its recent operational activities, the company said that it completed the approximately $112.5 million sale of 17 marina properties that it agreed to sell in May 2015. It netted about $86.3 million in cash from the portfolio.
I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture. For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments. Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients. I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
