Private Equity & Joint venture
Alternative funding
Cohen Advisers has had remarkable success helping companies introduce Equity or Joint Venture capital into their commercial project..
Joint Venture Financing Project Types: 
We will directly provide both Debt Financing & Equity Capital Funds for joint ventures for USA and International real estate development projects and alternative energy projects. The following is a summary of just one of the joint venture programs we have to offer.
We will provide 100% equity financing that covers all project costs including: land acquisition, development, and construction and equipment costs. There is no interest charged during the term of the investment.
Instead, the USA-based investment fund takes a minority equity position within the proposed project as compensation for the investment, with the buyout options determined during formal underwriting.
Investment Criteria for Joint Venture Financing: financing for all types of commercial real estate and alternative energy projects. In general, they must meet the following criteria:
• The project is for NEW DEVELOPMENTS ONLY, needing $1 million or more;

• The project must be sponsored by an experienced developer with a significant financial stake.

Joint Venture Equity Participation:
During formal underwriting, the investment fund will determine its equity participation in the project– typically 15%-40%. As such, they will take a minority interest in the project until completion/stabilization when they will look to exit the transaction via refinancing, sale of the project, etc.

Joint Venture Equity Financing Advantages:
• The developer pays no interest during the entire construction period–potentially saving millions of dollars in interest expense;
• Because the investment fund participates as a 100% joint venture equity partner, they assume nearly 100% of the project risk until completion or stabilization;
• This will allow the developer to reduce their up-front capital requirements while retaining a larger percentage of the project.

Joint Venture Construction Term         Equity Loan
Equity loans
Mezzanine/Equity Construction Loans are competitive to joint venture equity in both leverage and cost. We will provide financing up to 97% of cost (but no greater than 90% of equity) subordinate to senior construction debt. The loan typically prices around a 12% rate with a current (typically 5%) and accrual component. In exchange for providing high leverage debt, Meecorp will take an equity share of the deal (typically between 35%-55%) after return of sponsor equity.

Sale leaseback
When a company would rather keep its assets in cash than bricks and mortar, it’s time to think SALE-LEASEBACK.

Cohen partners and Investors can purchase real estate from your credit-worthy corporations, give you the full value of the property in cash, and keep you on the premises for as long as you so desire.
