We advise our own Net Lease funds whose single strategy is focused
on investments in operationally mission-critical corporate real estate
across selected industry sectors and commercial property types.
Most companies today are not in the business of owning real estate but need the use of land and buildings as an essential business asset.
A Sale & Leaseback transaction allows a company to reduce the capital tied up in non-core business assets and frees the cash in return for a lease and quarterly rent payments.
The full value of the real estate is extracted and there is no operational disruption.
The seller continues to conduct business in the facility as if they still owned it.
As corporate boards focus more closely on optimizing the efficiency of capital, sale leaseback financing provides an alternative source of long-term credit to traditional secured, unsecured and equity-focused financing.
This monetization of on-balance sheet real estate provides corporations with continued operational control, enhanced financial metrics and potential tax benefits:
Flexible Lease Terms
Potential tax advantages
Ongoing control of real estate
Release growth capital
Capital restructuring pre-exit
