Advisory Role

 

  • Our advisory philosophy is rooted in our belief that the key to successful financing is an effective combination of a consultative market perspective and innovative financing strategies. We work to ensure each client's success by providing up-to-date industry knowledge, as well as unparalleled market insight on every transaction.
  • In each facet of a particular assignment, our objective is to put together a project team comprised of experienced professionals. This allows us to provide our clients with up-to-the-minute commentary, guidance and qualified advice on how the market is reacting to various events. Our goal of providing a team of professionals capable of advising a client on all transaction levels has become increasingly valuable in this recent cycle for several reasons:
    • Dramatic changes in the credit markets continue to impact, and have fundamentally changed, how successful debt and equity transactions are accomplished.
    • There has been a significant shift in not only underwriting criteria, but also the availability and selectivity of capital in the marketplace.
    • Results that were commonplace a year ago, in regard to debt and equity origination and placement, now requires extraordinary skill and experience.
    • The ability to execute on specialized assets that further segment the marketplace requires specialized skill and expertise to source capital.

Scope of Services

 

  • We work with over 200 capital sources located around the world including local, regional, and national banks, government agency lenders, insurance companies, conduit/securitized lenders, credit companies, and offshore investors. Each specific debt and/or equity request is provided to the capital sources that can best fulfill the short-and long-term investment needs of our clients. Our efforts include:
  • Comprehensive Review of Transaction and Objectives:
    • Assist the Client in pre-screening prospective acquisitions and providing a preliminary debt structure for guidance on making purchase bids.
    • Become a financing reference for our clients to sellers and selling brokers.
    • Participate on buyer interviews to address sellers' debt capitalization questions.
    • Prepare a detailed Financing Request ("FR") that describes the transaction in great detail, including specific investor structures.
    • Work with the Client to determine the desired terms for the FR.
    • Develop a detailed term sheet to include in the FR. This term sheet will detail the primary loan terms desired.
    • Determine capital sources to receive the FR. CBRE will include any sources the Client desires, including groups they currently have a financing relationship with, or have expressed interest in establishing such relationship
  • Implementation & Execution:
    • Distribute the FR (electronically and/or in hard copy).
    • Address questions from the FR recipients.
    • Collect and distribute due diligence materials to the financing candidates.
    • Create a competitive environment by developing a short list of candidates to help the client obtain the best terms.
    • Evaluate each financing proposal, present to the Client the quantitative and qualitative analysis of each.
    • Assist the Client in selecting the capital source from the short list of candidates.
    • Arrange and tour all potential capital sources and third party groups (appraisal, engineering, environmental, etc.) as part of the team.
    • Negotiate and assist in the closing of the loan.
    • CBRE, though our GEMSA Servicing affiliate, will seek to service the loans to assist with timely and efficient post-closing requests.
