Apple REIT Merger Vote Procedure Imposes Tight Deadlines and Tricky Provisions

Posted on February 6th, 2014 at 10:00 AM

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law Offices:

With the snowy winter, Apple REIT investors may be able to hunker down and read the 400 plus page merger document detailing the merger procedure and their rights. But just in case they do not, here are a few tips to keep in mind if you own Apple 7, Apple 8, or Apple 9:

 

1)      You must vote on or before February 21st;

2)      Voting yes is easy;

3)      But voting yes also means you lose your rights to demand an appraisal of your shares;

4)      There are good reasons to demand an appraisal; but

5)      You (quickly) must follow the procedures outlined in page 161 of your 400 page document.

Jim, Stephany and the whole team were a God send.  We felt like we were put into a situation where we had no advocate. Jim’s team came in with a strong, well laid out strategy on how to get our story heard. Where our outside compliance company had no ability to help, our Broker Dealer was impenitent, and the regulators were aggressive pursuing vague rules, Jim came like a barricade against an assault we did not understand. Though you pay member dues to be affiliated with FINRA and a B/D, you have no voice. The only thing that is truly heard in this un-level playing field is a bulldog’s bark like Jim’s. I would encourage anyone to call Jim and his team to find a real ally in the tough and complicated world of securities regulation. They are truly the best.
