Sale/Lease Backs

Producing liquidity for corporate users.

As a market leader in the sale-leaseback industry, we underwrite sale/leaseback transactions nationwide, with credit expertise across multiple industries. By providing companies with capital through sale/leaseback transactions, we can secure long-term leases with existing tenants and generate favorable returns compared to corporate bonds of similar credit risk. 

In a sale/leaseback transaction, a company frees up capital to invest in its core business by selling an asset to us while maintaining long-term use of the asset by entering into a long-term lease. Sale/leaseback transactions create liquidity and remove real estate assets and related liabilities from a company’s balance sheet. Lease terms can be structured to match many factors               including the expected use of the property.
