United Mortgage Trust is a publicly-held real estate investment trust registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and we file reports with the SEC. Our stock is not traded on any exchange but we have developed plans whereby our shareholders can make further investments in our shares and have limited liquidity for their shares.
Share Repurchase Plan and Dividend Reinvestment Plan
There is currently no established public trading market for our shares. As an alternative means of providing limited liquidity for our shareholders, we maintain a Share Redemption Plan, (“SRP”). Under our plan, shareholders who have held the shares for at least one year are eligible to request that we repurchase their shares. In any consecutive 12 month period we may not repurchase more than 5% of the outstanding shares at the beginning of the 12 month period. The repurchase price is based on the value of our properties or a fixed pricing schedule, as determined by the trustees’ business judgment based on our book value, operations to date and general market and economic conditions and may not, in any event, exceed any current public offering price. We have also purchased a limited number of shares outside of our SRP from shareholders with special hardship considerations.
We also have a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (“DRP”) pursuant to which you may elect to have the entire amount or any portion of your Distributions reinvested into additional Shares of the Company. Visit our FAQs section for more information.
