Loan Workouts / Rescue Financing

Has the COVID-19 pandemic sidetracked your investment property?  Have your tenants stopped paying rent?  Has your property shut down and/or has construction stopped due to stop work orders?

Whatever your situation, work with NetLeaseX Capital and we’ll talk to you about raising rescue financing.  Structured as preferred equity and/or debt financing, rescue financing is like an infusion of cash which borrowers can use to gain leverage in workout negotiations with their senior lenders, including, for example, (a) negotiating a lower interest rate, (b) extend maturity date, and/or (c) release or reduction of a borrower’s personal loan guaranty.

In addition, borrowers can use raise rescue financing to:

  • Increase working capital to pay for operating expenses and/or mortgage payments;
  • Fund leasehold improvements for new tenants who replace tenants needing to downsize or otherwise have or will be going out of business, and
  • Pay leasing commissions.

and opportunistically to:

  • Buy out existing limited partners;
  • Cover unfunded capital calls from limited partners, and
  • Pay certain tenants to give back leased spaces.

With real estate experiencing a bull market for the past 10 years, understanding and having experience in loan workouts has become a lost art. However, with COVID-19, times have changed nearly overnight.  With decades of loan workout experience and purchasing non-performing and sub-performing loans, finding the right team is critical to help guiding you to your investment and financial objectives during these perilous times.


    You can read our below articles which have been published in the Scotsman Guide, an industry publication for commercial lenders and mortgage brokers, on the topics of rescue financing and preferred equity.

    The Scotsman Guide

    This article gives an overview on how real estate investors can increase leverage by raising preferred equity to fill the gap between the amount an investor can raise in senior debt financing and the sponsor’s equity investment.  This article further discusses various ways preferred equity investments can be structured including, for example, creating one or more tiers, waterfall priority order (e.g. A/B structure vs. pari passu), recourse, repayment schedules, control rights, and capital shortfall requirements.

    Throw Out A Lifeline
    The Scotsman Guide
    July 2020

    This article discusses how real estate investors may be able to raise rescue financing to cover operating losses and/or mortgage payments during the Covid-19 crisis.  Raising rescue financing is especially important for real estate investors who may face substantial liability due to personal loan guarantys if their lender were to foreclose; thus, triggering a forced sale at a fire-sale price.
