DALLAS, Sept. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- NexPoint Advisors, L.P., investment adviser to the NexPoint Diversified Real Estate Trust ("NXDT" and together with affiliated entities "NexPoint"), has withdrawn its offer to purchase Shares of Beneficial Interest (the "Shares") of United Development Funding IV ("UDFI" or the "Company").
The offer, which NexPoint announced on December 14, 2020, was intended to provide liquidity to shareholders who otherwise had few opportunities to sell Shares after Nasdaq delisted the Company in May 2017 and the Securities and Exchange Commission revoked the registration of all classes of registered securities of UDFI in August 2020.
On January 8, 2021, shortly before the initial offer was set to expire, the Company announced that it had reduced the percentage of outstanding Shares that a shareholder may own from 9.8% to 5.0%. NexPoint believes the Company took such action to prevent NexPoint from acquiring any additional Shares. This unilateral action, which is consistent with the Company's pattern of anti-shareholder conduct, ultimately made it impossible for NexPoint to close the offer without extensive legal intervention.
Despite the decision to withdraw the offer, NexPoint remains committed to maximizing the value of its investment in UDFI along with that of thousands of other shareholders. As such, NexPoint is continuing its efforts to hold accountable those individuals and entities that have perpetuated the massive multi-year deception and fraud at the expense of UDFI shareholders. NexPoint will continue to demand financial reporting and an annual shareholder meeting, neither of which has been provided to shareholders for over seven years.
