Partners has experience in tailoring structured financing transactions to achieve specifically designed tax, accounting and economic results for its clients. Partners assists in evaluating key critical factors to identify strategies for extracting capital out of real estate assets such as operating costs, risk and return on assets, lease vs. own and hold vs. sell analysis.
Partners assisted one client in repositioning their North American logistics portfolio using operating leases to reduce the use of capital. The leases were negotiated to have built in flexibility to expand and contract and saved the corporation’s operating capital for other purposes.
