NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/13 -- Resource Capital Corp. (NYSE: RSO) (the "Company") announces that it has closed a $45.9 million portfolio bridge loan package secured by three multifamily complexes in Dallas, TX and one in Houston, TX. The portfolio is comprised of 1,635 apartment units in the aggregate. The sponsor is a venture backed by an international opportunity fund that is another of the Company's many repeat borrowers.
Dave Bloom, Senior Vice-President and head of the Company's Real Estate Debt business, commented, "RSO was able to customize a financing package that addressed the sponsor's desire for maximum flexibility on an asset by asset basis providing the ability for alternative exits as the sponsor's value add plans are realized on individual properties. This is another example of RSO's ability to utilize our strong balance sheet to continue to serve our clients in the larger loan space. We are very pleased with this transaction and will continue to make larger loans that accommodate sponsor specific needs while still providing the certainty of execution, expeditious closing process and interactive asset management that are the hallmarks of RSO's direct origination platform."
