All equity will receive a 50% preferred return . Until all capital is returned
We expect to achieve a 25% return on investment during the first six months, once the recoveries have been abated and the reposed vehicles are repaired and re-sold, and 60% after 12 months.
All proceeds above the preferred return will be structured on an 80%/20% basis between the Investor and the Managing Partner until the Investor’s initial investment has been returned and they have received their preferred return. Once that occurs, all proceeds will be split on a 50%/50% basis with the operating partner.
The 50% return is not set off against the capital accounts but instead based on the investor’s capital contribution. Any distributions over the 50% (only) will go towards capital account reductions.
We anticipate returning the investors equity within two years from a refinancing or sooner if individual assets are resold.
