As a result of the innovative structure, negative arbitrage expenses are greatly reduced for the project sponsor.
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) November 22, 2011
Red Capital Markets, LLC (MEMBER FINRA/SIPC), the investment banking arm of comprehensive capital provider RED CAPITAL GROUP, LLC (“RED”) and a leading multifamily bond underwriter, announced the use of a proprietary structure it created and recently deployed for The Reserve on South Martin, a 60-unit affordable housing project that is being built in Mt. Healthy, near Cincinnati, Ohio.
Tax-exempt financing structured by Red Capital Markets, LLC (“Red”) for The Reserve on South Martin utilized a proprietary approach that was developed by Red to streamline transaction costs and improve efficiency. Red’s Bonds DirectSM structure involves a commitment by related entity Red Capital Partners, LLC (“RCP”) to purchase the entire $6,000,000 bond issue on a draw-down basis as required by the demands of the construction schedule.
As a result of the innovative structure, negative arbitrage expenses are greatly reduced for the project sponsor. Also, due to RCP’s direct purchase and RED’s other in-house servicing capabilities, the need for bond trustee and rating agency fees was eliminated, thereby reducing costs of issuance expenses to the benefit of the project sponsor. The bonds issued by the Ohio Housing Finance Agency have a 22-month maturity and although the construction phase is expected to be complete in the fall of 2012, the bonds are pre-payable any time at par.
The project sponsor is Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority (“CMHA”), who also is serving as the Developer, General Partner and Management Agent for the community. CMHA’s interim executive director, Ted Bergh said, “Low income seniors struggle to find affordable housing solutions they can afford on fixed incomes. The Reserve on South Martin will meet a critical need in the community and will make a positive impact on the Mt. Healthy neighborhood.”
In addition to bond proceeds and $1.2 million in Low Income Housing Tax Credit proceeds, CMHA was awarded $10.3 million Neighborhood Stabilization Program II grant monies as part of a larger consortium. The grant was one of just 56 awarded nationwide.
