Many GPB Capital Holdings LLC shareholders were alerted after receiving the current April 2019 letters. Those investors are now weighing their options in light of GPB’s yearlong refusal to pay investors any distributions. A promising conclusion to a terrible situation does not seem probable, and GPB investors fear they may be left “holding the bag.” Retail investors were tempted by opportunistic brokers offering attractive investment returns, while the brokers that sold them were attracted by massive commissions.

GPB investors are more than likely aware of the various regulatory investigations involving GPB (i.e., State of Massachusetts, Securities and Exchange Commission, and FBI), but they are also trying to make sense of GPB’s recent correspondence issued in April 2019: worried investors may know:
- April 4, 2019: GPB Capital issued a letter to “Valued Partners,” (investors), in which, among other things, GPB anticipated quarterly (not monthly) distribution payments could be announced at the end of April 2019 and compensated on May 15, 2019; and GPB issued another letter to “Valued Partners” confirming that 1st quarter 2019 supply obligations won’t be made, promising to keep investors updated with new advancements.
- GPB’s April 2019 correspondence should no doubt trigger concern. Investors hope the GPB situation is not the next story on American Greed and are wondering what to do now. Investors continue to monitor the problem and want to have their queries answered.
