$1,100,000 Acquisition Capital

Challenge:  Securing medium-term gap financing to acquire a Maryland Section 8 affordable housing property.

Existing Solutions:  80% loan-to-value (LTV) financing from a commercial lender combined with a 20% LTV capital infusion provided by developer capital, self-raised “friends and family” private fund, predatory capital, or private equity.  The 20% LTV is traditionally hard to find, expensive, and often not compatible with senior financing.

Why Candeur Group:  Candeur is comfortable with underwriting syndication takeout risk, sponsor’s ability to execute, and we can use our CDFI to provide financing giving bank investors high-value CRA lending credit.

Our Solution:  Candeur provided $1,100,000 of capital with a 24-month term priced between a secured commercial loan and unsecured private equity.  The developer met his seller purchase and sale deadline and syndicated the property within 18 months.

$12,000,000 Limited Partner Interest Purchase Capital

Challenge:  Find a source of capital for a general partner to buy out limited partner interests in various year 13-15 LIHTC limited partnerships.

Existing Solutions:  General Partner contributes own capital or raises private equity which typically over values risk and ignores inherent CRA value of investment.

Why Candeur Group:  Limited Partner interest purchases are typically “out of the box” transactions and do not fit into traditional off-the-shelf financing programs.   

Our Solution:  Candeur utilized its CDFI to provide the General Partner capital at a competitive return with a 5-year term while also providing an attractive risk-adjusted return and CRA-eligible investment for our capital partners
