Item 1. Security and Issuer

 

This Amendment No. 18 to Statement on Schedule 13D (this “Amendment No. 18”) relates to shares of Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Shares”) of American Realty Investors, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Issuer” or “ARL”), and further amends the original Statement on Schedule 13D as amended by Amendment Nos. 1 through 16 thereto (the “Amended Statement”) previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) by the “Reporting Persons” described below. The principal executive offices of the Issuer are located at 1603 LBJ Freeway, Suite 800, Dallas, Texas 75234. The Shares are listed and traded on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”). The CUSIP number of the Shares is 029174-10-9.

 

This Amendment No. 18 to Schedule 13D is being filed to reflect the correct number of Shares held by two of the Reporting Persons, following account confirmations concluded on June 15, 2020.

 

Item 2. Identity and Background

 

Item 2 of the Amended Statement is hereby further amended as follows:

 

(a)-(c) This Amendment No. 18 is filed on behalf of The Gene E. Phillips Children’s Trust, a trust formed under the laws of the State of Texas (the “GEP Trust”), Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“TCI”), May Realty Holdings, Inc.

Each of the Reporting Persons has its principal executive offices located at 1603 LBJ Freeway, Suite 300, Dallas, Texas 75234. All of GEP Trust, TCI, MRHI, RAI, RALLC, Holdings and AEI are collectively referred to as the “Reporting Persons.” The Reporting Persons may be deemed to constitute a “person” within the meaning of Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, because Holdings is owned by RALLC, the sole member of which is RAI, the sole stockholder of which is MRHI, which is beneficially owned by a trust established for the benefit of Gene E. Phillips’ children. RALLC owns all of the voting securities of Holdings. RAI owns all of the voting securities of AEI.

Item 6. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer

 

Item 6 of the Amended Statement is hereby further amended to read as follows:

 

Of the Shares owned directly by Arcadian, 104,015 Shares are subject to an accommodation pledge for an obligation of another entity in connection with a loan from ABC Land & Development, Inc.
