Ken Betts, international partner with Locke Lorde LLP, joined REIT.com for a video interview during REITWise 2015: NAREIT’s Law, Accounting and Finance Conference held in Phoenix.
Betts noted that liquidity events are becoming more common in the public non-listed REIT (PNLR) sector. He described two different kinds of liquidity events for PNLRs. Roughly 50 percent have consisted of mergers and acquisitions (M&A). The other half have come through initial public offerings (IPOs).
