Investments in commercial real estate (CRE) credit and related securities (e.g., CMBS) are subject to the risks typically associated with the CRE underlying the investment, which include, but are not limited to: market risks such as local property supply and demand conditions; tenants’ inability to pay rent; tenant turnover; inflation and other increases in operating costs; adverse changes in laws and regulations; relative illiquidity of real estate investments; changing market demographics; acts of nature such as earthquakes, floods or other uninsured losses; interest rate fluctuations; and availability of financing.
Investing in our common stock involves a high degree of risk. You should purchase these securities only if you can afford the complete loss of your investment. You should carefully review the “Risk Factors” section of the prospectus for a more detailed discussion. Some of the more significant risks relating to an investment in our shares include:
- This is a “blind pool” offering. You will not have the opportunity to evaluate our future investments before we make them.
- Since there is no public trading market for shares of our common stock, repurchase of shares by us will likely be the only way to dispose of your shares. Our share repurchase plan was suspended by our board of directors on March 24, 2020 because of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and was not reinstated for all stockholders until July 1, 2021. Under our share repurchase plan, stockholders who have held their shares at least one year have the opportunity to request that we repurchase their shares on a monthly basis, but we are not obligated to repurchase any shares and may choose to repurchase only some, or even none, of the shares that have been requested to be repurchased in any particular month at our discretion. In addition, repurchases are subject to available liquidity and other significant restrictions. Further, our board of directors may modify, suspend or terminate our share repurchase plan if it deems such action to be in our best interest and the best interest of our stockholders. As a result, our shares should be considered as having only limited liquidity and at times may be illiquid.
- We cannot guarantee that we will make distributions, and if we do, such distributions have been and may again be funded from sources other than earnings and cash flow from operations, including, without limitation, the sale of assets, borrowings, repayment of real estate debt investments, return of capital or offering proceeds, and advances or the deferral of fees and expense reimbursements, and we have no limits on the amounts we may pay from such sources. Our earnings have not covered and may again not cover all of our distributions. The use of sources other than cash flow from operations to pay distributions, the ultimate repayment of any liabilities incurred, and paying distributions that are not covered by earnings could adversely impact our ability to pay distributions in future periods, decrease our NAV, decrease the amount of cash we have available for operations and new investments and adversely impact the value of our stockholders’ investments.
- The purchase and repurchase price for shares of our common stock are generally based on our prior month’s NAV and are not based on any public trading market. A substantial portion of our assets consists of CRE debt that is valued by our Advisor, with the assistance of the Sub-Advisor, using factors that are periodically validated by an independent third party. The valuation of our investments is inherently subjective, and our NAV may not accurately reflect the actual price at which our investments could be liquidated on any given day.
- We have no employees and are dependent on the Advisor and the Sub-Advisor to conduct our operations. The Advisor and the Sub-Advisor will face conflicts of interest as a result of, among other things, the allocation of investment opportunities among us and Other Sound Point Accounts, the allocation of time of their investment professionals and the substantial fees that we pay to the Advisor and that the Advisor pays to the Sub-Advisor.
- This is a “best efforts” offering. If we are not able to raise a substantial amount of capital on an ongoing basis, our ability to achieve our investment objectives could be adversely affected.
- Principal and interest payments on our borrowings will reduce the amount of funds available for distribution or investment in our targeted assets.
- If we fail to maintain our qualification as a REIT and no relief provisions apply, we will have to pay corporate income tax on our taxable income (which will be determined without regard to the dividends-paid deduction available to REITs) and our NAV and cash available for distribution to our stockholders could materially decrease.
- The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the economy and our operations, including causing decreases in the fair value of the collateral underlying our investments, and may have additional adverse effects in the future.
- We own the Renaissance Chicago O’Hare Suites Hotel, and for so long as we own hotels or invest in loans secured by hotels and securities collateralized by hotels, we will be exposed to the unique risks of the hospitality sector, including seasonality, volatility and the severe reduction in occupancy caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
