DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc. (TCI) President and CEO, Daniel J. Moos, recently travelled to Israel to analyze possible financing opportunities, noting that Israel has been a viable market open to making investments in U.S. real estate companies.
“During my discussions with several groups and many Israeli financial institutions, reference was repeatedly made to the fact that TCI’s market cap was averaging only around $90 Million for the last several months. My general response centered around all of the significant accomplishments TCI has achieved, especially as we emerged from the recent U.S. real estate market collapse,” commented Daniel J. Moos. “I also pointed out that a significant portion of TCI’s shares are predominately held by another Public Company (ARL); the Market doesn’t understand this, and as a result undervalues the stock price of TCI.”
“In my opinion, the company is poised for both growth and enhanced shareholder value in the upcoming years. I am equally optimistic about the outlook for the U.S. economy, and TCI is uniquely positioned to benefit from the improving conditions,” continued Moos. “I am purchasing 285,000 shares of TCI stock, which approximates about a $3 Million investment, in addition to the shares I already own.”
