Bascom Group Receives $235M in Loan Proceeds for Refinancing of Multifamily Portfolio
IRVINE, CALIF. — The Bascom Group LLC, an Irvine, Calif.-based private equity firm, has refinanced an 11-property multifamily portfolio. Bascom received individual loans for each asset totaling $235 million.
Bascom worked with several capital market partners and lenders to complete the refinancing. Comerica Bank provided five loans while Silvergate Bank provided two of the loans. TCF Bank, New York Life, Citizens Business Bank and Texas Capital Bank each funded one loan as well.
Brian Eisendrath and Annie Rice from CBRE, Charles Halladay and Jamie Kline from JLL and Tom Sherlock and Erich Pryor from Talonvest arranged the debt financing
The portfolio includes six properties that are located in California and two that are located in Las Vegas. The other three properties are located in Colorado, Arizona and Texas. All of the properties are part of Bascom’s third fully discretionary fund, Bascom Value Added Apartment Investors III LLC
The transaction yielded more than $39 million in additional loan proceeds for Bascom Group, enabling the firm to reduce its debt service requirement by 16 percent. Most of the loans were structured with interest-only terms for 24 to 36 months and rates between 180 and 200 basis points over LIBOR.
“Our lending partners enabled us to extend our debt term with minimal upfront costs, as well as preserve maximum flexibility to sell the assets with little to no prepayment penalties or lockout periods,” says James D’Argenio, senior principal at Bascom Group.
