Real Estate Transactions

 

Sale-Leaseback

In a sale-leaseback transaction, a company sells its real estate assets for cash and simultaneously signs a long-term lease. Through a sale-leaseback a company is able to convert one or more critical assets into working capital.

Advantages include:

  • Immediate access to capital
  • 100% market value realization of otherwise illiquid assets
  • Potential to keep transaction off balance sheet
  • Continued operational control of facilities
  • Increased return on assets and return on invested capital
 

Build-To-Suit

In a build-to-suit transaction, we fund the construction of a new facility or the expansion of an existing one. Upon completion, the tenant enters into a long-term net lease, while retaining full operational control of the new facility.

Advantages include:

  • 100% market value realization of otherwise illiquid assets
  • Expansion to fit growing needs
  • Potential to keep transaction off balance sheet
  • Increased return on assets and return on invested capital
 

Private Equity Portfolio Company/LBO Financing

A sale-leaseback can be used by private equity firms to fund new portfolio company acquisitions, M&A initiatives and leveraged buyouts. In addition, this form of financing provides capital to pay down debt, fund add-on acquisitions and working capital as well as return capital to investors.
