How do we Help!
We develop a customized understanding of the core customer groups, as well domestic and international. We then leverage this knowledge to pick better store locations and outsmart competitors.
We help you understand the drivers between excellent and lackluster store performance so that we can assist you in developing an action plan for poor-performing stores, stores that can be rehabilitated by improving operations.
Our teams identify new markets for growth, research new formats and help you strategize the scale, timing, and budget for expansion regionally, nationally and globally.
With our help, you can maximize impact, penetration, and revenues by coordinating and timing store openings. We can also help reduce costs and increase efficiency with multifacet methods.
Store sales prediction
We help you to understand the revenue potential of each individual location when considering the real estate costs and the location’s position within the context of the broader portfolio.
Acquisition and merger
We understand that not all existing stores will perform the same under the new brand. Overlapping and poor-performing stores will have to be closed and these costs should be incorporated into your strategic plan.
Our professionals provide expertise in!
1. Acquisitions/dispositions (sale-leaseback, net lease sale, build-to-suit, straight leasing, subleasing/assignment and lease buyout, and one-time lease portfolio disposition for surplus liabilities).
2. Debt finance (floating and fixed rate, tax-exempt, interest rate hedging, mortgage-backed securities, restructuring, and bond securitization) for our occupier clients.
How do we Help!
We explore all options to develop the most innovative financing and control strategies available to free up capital and achieve the maximum value of each client’s real estate asset or portfolio.
We structure transactions to minimize tax cost or maximize tax benefits, including: tax credits, depreciation, interest benefits, and tax-exempt financing.
We execute financial structures that reduce balance sheet leverage, and therefore enhance the overall credit profile of our clients.
Reducing ongoing cost
We assess third party ownership and capital stack participation, quantify the impact of tenancy on asset valuation, and structure a means by which clients can capture a portion of that value.
We assist in rationalizing real estate in anticipation of changing conditions, evaluating economic and operational implications of a range of options, and executing structures that allow control while maintaining occupancy/control optionalities.
