Nationwide Commercial Loan Acquisitions
Business Acquisition Financing

TYPES OF LBOS
LBOs are typically used for three purposes, each in the category of corporate acquisitions generally. These are 1) taking a public company private, 2) financing spin-offs, and 3) carrying out private property transfers frequently related to ownership changes in small business.
Public to Private
The first situation arises when an investor (or investment group) buys all of the outstanding stock of a publicly traded company and thus turns the company into a privately-held enterprise ("taking private" in reverse of "going public"). These deals may be friendly or hostile, the two terms related to management's point of view. Friendly cases typically involve the management buying the company for itself with plans to operate it thereafter as a privately-held entity. Hostile cases involve an investor or investor group intent on buying, reorganizing, and then reselling the company again to realize a high return. The sale of the company may be to another company or may be to the public in a stock offering. In the last case the situation actually amounts to a transaction more aptly labeled public-to-private-to-public. There are other variants in the disposition or in the payback of a third-party investor, although they tend to be rare, such as very high dividend payments and recapitalization by other groups.
Public or private companies often wish to sell off elements of their business to get cash. In some cases the seller may itself have been bought in an LBO and is spinning off assets to pay the investors back. In such situations the spun-off element's management may itself be the buyer or may be passive in the transaction. An LBO is used to purchase the subsidiary or division in question. The fundamental financial logic of such deals, however, remains the same.
The last situation concerns cases where a privately held operation is bought by an investor group. Such cases often arise when a small businesses owner, having reached retirement age, wishes to divest him-or herself of the company and either cannot find a corporate buyer or does not wish to sell to a company. The buying group itself may be the company's employees or individuals associated in some way with the owner. These people organize an LBO because they only have limited equity.
FINANCING AND PAYBACK
The target of an LBO must, almost by definition, be profitable, growing, and produce a suitably large cash flow. In acquisitions jargon this is often abbreviated as EBITDA, meaning earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization—the component elements of cash flow as ordinarily defined. Why cash flow? Because repayment of the large, leveraged debt is from future cash flows of the company. Other assets, of course, are also taken into consideration. If cash flow cannot keep pace with repayment, it is desirable that the company has saleable components (e.g., potential spin-offs) or liquid assets. Third party investors cannot be persuaded to put up cash unless the numbers look good, the elements of the company seem easily saleable, the company has lots of cash on its books, or all of the above are present.
The leveraged portion of the LBO may be as high as 90 percent of the deal but can be lower. In periods of unusual frenzy, the percent has even climbed above 90 percent. The rest is in the form of equity. Multiple "layers" of financing are involved: senior debt, senior subordinated debt, subordinated debt, mezzanine debt, bridge financing, and finally purchaser's own equity. The instruments described here are listed in increasing order of risk. In the case of a default, those holding senior debt will be paid first, owners of equity last (if at all); these security relationships are contractually built into the instruments themselves. Mezzanine financing is a hybrid between straight equity and debt, structured so that "mezzanine" holders are just barely paid something in an extreme case where equity holders lose everything. Bridge loans are short-term loans intended to be repaid either from the acquired company's cash holdings or from rapid disposition of company assets. Debt, of course, may be in the form of high-yield and therefore high-risk "junk" bonds.
LBO risks are high because payback depends entirely on the company's future performance. If the economy falters—or some event halts the purchased company in its tracks (a major lawsuit, the loss of a major account)—or if the high re-payments actually hamper the company by starving it of capital, investors may see their money turn into thin air. Healthy, growing, cash-rich companies purchased by an LBO therefore may lose their flexibility by losing their cash and simultaneously acquiring a huge load of debt: small shocks in the past become large shocks in the present.
For these reasons investors expect returns above 20 percent per annum.

April 21, 2009 - Tapping Hidden Liquidity
from an Existing Loan Portfolio
In today’s market, loan sellers often overlook liquidity within their existing portfolio. Would it surprise you to learn, that selling “loans you are not 100% comfortable with” (i.e. maturing, pre-watch list and watch list commercial mortgage loans) can provide higher executions than performing, or distressed commercial mortgage loans?
Well guess what, today they can, and in most cases are!

The sale of these loans will allow you to redeploy liquidity as needed and will strengthen your balance sheet.

The bottom line is to ask yourself, would you be willing to sell these loans for the right price today? If so, please contact one of our representatives to discuss.
Here are the simple facts: this newly released liquidity will permit you to re-lend at current market rates, increase spreads and earn new origination fees while strengthening the overall quality of your commercial loan portfolio.

A major improvement from what the market has experienced in recent months with deep discount buyers.
Our resources's clients, like you, have limited windows of opportunity for acquiring loans, so we need to be kept informed on an ongoing basis of what loans you may have available or considering for sale.
We have companies that can assist you in freeing up resources, as distressed loans increase and utilize more of them.
Here is how, as soon as a loan is categorized as problematic or of concern, Worldwide can immediately arrange a private sale based upon an acceptable indication of value.
A timely, discrete negotiated sale will optimize your return by freeing up capital for loan acquisitions; based upon your purchase parameters and position you for new loan originations.
In addition, resources allocated to distressed loan workouts can return to income generating activities.
Worldwide distressed buyers are indifferent to loan modifications or owning the real estate and are categorized by geographic interests, property types and loan sizes.
As such, please understand that Our resources need to see the loan, and understand the entire history behind it, in order to price it.
December 2008 Year-End Update:
Yield requirements for performing commercial mortgage loans in the secondary market are at decade highs; making par and premium executions nearly impossible in the short-term, with few exceptions.
Credit markets remain constrained, and lenders are experiencing increased commercial mortgage loan delinquencies.
As a result, the market is anticipating a rise in distressed commercial mortgage loans for 2009.
In the absence of a normal market, Our resources have shifted their direction, and focus to assisting sellers at mitigating losses from sub-performing, non-performing and distressed loans.
We have companies that created a custom tailored solution which offers aggressive executions for sellers on a regional basis.
In addition, RilCorp. Brokerage represent Firms, that focus on individual commercial mortgage loans, as opposed to a pool or portfolio mentality, and identify buyers that will maximize a loans execution.
Sellers receive the highest executions possible and avoid the pitfalls associated with the mass marketing of distressed loans.
How to get started, first take a few minutes to review your commercial mortgage loan portfolio for loans that you may want to sell in short-order.
This process will help you prevent further losses, free up capital, recover loan loss allowances or reserves and assist you in repositioning loan originations toward current market yields.
Once the commercial mortgage loans have been identified, provide us with the required loan documentation for performing, sub-performing, non-performing or distressed commercial mortgage loans for an indication of value and / or loan sale.
The format for the required loan information can be found in our October 2008 Update below.
November 2008 Market Update:
The government has decided not to buy loans from financial institutions.
This situation will challenge financial markets and institutions to re-examine their ability to manage liquidity and the direction of their businesses.
As such, the best option available for increasing liquidity and returning to originations remains the secondary market.
Our resources has several funds available that can provide liquidity at fair market value for performing, sub-performing and non-performing commercial mortgage loans, pool or portfolios.
Now is the time and window of opportunity to start a sale that can actually close that will provide liquidity, portfolio restructuring and the ability to originate new loans at current market levels.
Alternatively, you may want to know the fair market value of your loans, even if now may not be the right time for you to sell. If that's the case, please give us a call.
October 2008 Market Update:
Even with credit remaining constrained we have the resources to provide liquidity via whole loan sales of commercial mortgages.
We represent Companies, that have several funds aggressively acquiring performing, and sub-performing commercial mortgage loans nationwide, excluding raw land.
Please note seasoned performing loans are experiencing the highest executions. Loan pool pricing options and documentation requirements for indications of value are presented below.
Loan Pool Pricing Options:
- Performing pools.
- Sub-performing pools
- A blended execution for performing and sub-performing pools.
September 2008 Market Update:
Credit continues to tighten while risk based spreads continue to increase for commercial mortgage loans.
Cooperation for overnight lending between banks is expected to improve as consolidations and resolution for the existing credit crisis begin to take hold.
The need for liquidity still exists; while secondary marketing sales activity for commercial mortgage loans is expanding at historic levels.
The best method for managing liquidity in this environment remains whole loan sales.
July 2008 Market Update:
RilCorp. Brokerage, represent Companies that are very active in the commercial mortgage loan market, and would like to take this opportunity to provide an update, and have companies take a look at their existing portfolio to see if portfolio augmentation would be beneficial.
Whether you are looking for liquidity, adjust geographic, or loan type concentrations, enhance your weighted average coupon (RIL), or reduce classified assets, we are available to discuss your options.
Current market for commercial mortgage loans:
Maintaining liquidity remains critical because:
- Existing portfolio weighted average coupons are narrowing as the costs of funds are increasing (margins are decreasing even as credit risk spreads increase).
- Credit risk spreads continue to increase as underwriting guidelines continue to tighten.
- Uninsured funds are being siphoned out of institutions
- Portfolio executions can be optimized as long as they are not mass marketed.
- Quiet, private negotiated transactions that fall under the radar maximize executions.
- Recycling funds through the sale of existing loans results in higher margins from fees and re-lending at higher rates.
Our resources provides the following strategic services:
- Sale/Acquisition/Participation of commercial real estate loan(s) and portfolios, regardless of performance..
- Targeted loan portfolio sales and acquisitions for liquidity, mitigating geographic and product type concentration risk.
- Secondary marketing services for Bank Holding Companies actively involved in Mergers & Acquisitions.
RilCorp Companies, differentiates themselves from others by presenting a sellers' loan(s) to only one buyer at a time on a, "for their eyes only" negotiated basis.
It has been our experience that significantly higher executions are achieved when portfolios are strategically marketed in this manner.
RilCorp. Brokerage welcomes the opportunity to discuss your commercial loan needs and encourages you to contact one of our representatives with questions or comments CLICK HERE
