DIRECTED CAPITAL CLOSES SEVENTH FUND AT $77 MILLION WITH INCREASED GOLDMAN SACHS REVOLVING CREDIT FACILITY OF $100 MILLION
Financial firm closes largest distressed commercial real estate investment fund in company history, is already paying returns to investors
PETERSBURG, FLA. & SAN DIEGO – January 23, 2017 – Directed Capital, a national distressed asset workout specialist firm that opportunistically acquires, manages, and resolves distressed commercial mortgage loans in the $1 million to $10 million range, today announced the closing of its seventh fund at $77 million, its highest-grossing fund to date. Additionally, the firm has announced a $40 million increase in the firm’s revolving credit facility from Goldman Sachs Bank USA from $60 million to $100 million. The fund already has acquired more than $180 million in assets, and quarterly distributions to investors began in the first quarter of 2016.
Celebrating 15 years in business, Directed Capital has, since 2001, successfully sponsored seven funds, raising more than $200 million in equity and acquiring more than $1 billion in under-performing commercial real estate mortgage loans diversified by geography and asset class nationwide. The firm pays returns to investors that consistently out-perform the market, while helping commercial property owners under duress restructure their payments and stay in business.
“At Directed Capital, we solve critical problems that exist in the market and turn them into unique opportunities for investment and economic growth,” said Directed Capital’s CEO Chris Moench, who has specialized for more than 20 years in acquiring and repositioning distressed debt. “We provide small- to mid-sized businesses that are struggling to avoid foreclosure with the much-needed flexible solutions that many traditional lenders are not able to offer. At the same time, we provide investors with low-risk, uncorrelated investment returns that have consistently outperformed the market.”
Unlike banks and other lenders that typically foreclose on loans when borrowers hit a rough patch, Directed Capital acquires distressed loans from lenders and assigns its team of 30 full-time experienced professionals and portfolio managers to develop practical, effective loan workout solutions, build solid relationships with borrowers and develop plans to reposition the loans. By collecting the full amount of the loans plus interest from the borrowers over time, Directed Capital helps small and middle-market businesses stay afloat and creates superior returns for its investors.
