The REIT last filed a 10-Q with the SEC on November 11, 2015. The REIT’s auditing firm of Whitley Penn LLP resigned on November 19, 2015 and the REIT reported to the SEC that it was unable to engage a new independent auditing firm as of March 31, 2016. The REIT filed a Notification of Late Filing on that date and has not subsequently filed a 10-K or 10-Q.
Another program from the same sponsor, United Development Funding IV’s common stock was delisted from the NADAQ Stock Market in October, 2016. On May 23, 2016, United Development Funding IV disclosed in a filing with the SEC that it had defaulted on a $35 million loan and had entered into a forbearance agreement with the lender. The REIT also announced that it had suspended distributions to shareholders during the forbearance period.
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.
