    New Jersey Redevelopment Authority Training Institute Visits Philly: Attracting and Negotiating with Equity Investors

    Equity has become a more essential source of capital for residential and commercial development projects and developers are forced to contribute more equity capital in development projects.  Since the recent economic crisis, most projects will not support and lenders will not allow more than 80 percent, and sometimes 60 – 70 percent of debt financing in the deal.   So how do you attract the equity capital after you have exhausted all debt financing alternatives?  The first step in attracting equity capital is “penciling out” the project to know what you have to work with, then structuring and negotiating a suitable partnership.  Our workshop leader will be George Vallone, President of the Hoboken Brownstone Company.  Seats are limited.

    Key learning objectives:

    *Introduce how to determine what is potentially available for an equity investor; 
    *Explore the different types of projects and structures preferred by equity investors; 
    *Learn who are potential equity partners and where to find them; 
    *Discuss equity investors’ critical decision factors; and 
    *Understand how to best present an investment opportunity to an equity investor.
