Arbor Realty Trust (ABR) Bad Loans Case

  • On November 17, 2023, and December 5, 2023, hedge fund Viceroy released two research reports on Arbor Realty Trust (ABR), concluding that Arbor’s asset book comprised of high-risk bridge loans is distressed, and underlying collateral is overstated.
  • On it, $ABR fell 3.8%, losing $98M+ of shareholder value.
  • Investors may have grounds to suspect Arbor of overstating the value of its assets, which led to their losses.
On November 17, 2023, hedge fund Viceroy released a research report, concluding that “Arbor’s high-risk multifamily bridge loans, which comprise substantially all of its asset book, are going bad fast… The end is near.”

Then, on December 5, 2023, after receiving information from “whistleblowers” regarding distressed Arbor deals and underlying assets, Viceroy released a second research report on the company, highlighting three multifamily properties in the Jacksonville, Florida area encumbered by Arbor loans, which Viceroy submits have property values likely below Arbor’s loan balances. Asserting that Arbor’s “entire loan book is distressed and underlying collateral is vastly overstated”, Viceroy concluded that “Arbor is a donut. $0.00.”

On this news, $ABR fell 3.8% and lost over $98 million of its market capitalization, seriously damaging shareholders.

Considering all the information, investors might have grounds to suspect Arbor of distorting the fair market value of its assets, which led to their losses.

The case is already under investigation by at least one of the reputable law firms.
