Accepting $15,000 - $500,000 investments
Invest in a junior mortgage and mezzanine loan (the Loan) primarily secured by a substantially completed multi-family development and parcel of land (the Project) in Harrison, New Jersey. The Loan restructures (replaces) an $89.5M loan, which closed in December 2019 after the borrower did not meet its obligations. The COVID pandemic and increased supply costs caused the borrower to fall behind anticipated construction milestones and the project to run over budget. The Loan refinances the previous lender and provides additional capital (a recapitalization) to the borrower to help finish the construction project.
To incentivize the borrower and offer certain protections, the Loan obligates the borrower to complete the vast majority of the construction project by April 29, 2022. Should the borrower fail to meet this milestone, the Loan lenders can force a foreclosure process to take control and ownership of the project.
The underwritten value of the assets is substantially larger than the outstanding value of the Loan, which may allow for complete recovery should the foreclosure process begin. Newmark Knight Frank, a commercial real estate advisory firm, has appraised the project on an “as-is” basis at ~$161M representing a loan-to-value ratio of 61.8%. As such, the value of the project would need to fall by approximately 40% before an investor experiences losses.
The Project’s “as-is” value is expected to increase as future construction milestones are met due to the attractive characteristics of the Project, as well as the surrounding area. The Project which secures the Loan is located in Hudson County, which offers itself as an easily accessible and affordable area as apartment demand continues to spread from the urban core of New York City. The Project is well positioned to benefit from the convenience of the nearby PATH station, which provides direct commuter access to Manhattan in 25 minutes, Newark in under 5 minutes, and Newark Liberty International Airport within 15 minutes.
The loan has a term of 10 months remaining, with one option to extend for 6 months. Investors are expected to earn interest at a target net annualized yield of 16.8%. All interest is expected to be held back in reserve until remaining construction is completed (expected April 2022). After successful completion, reserve interest will be paid and investors can expect to receive ~14.1% per annum distributed monthly and ~2.7% per annum accruing and compounding monthly. Principal and accrued interest are expected to be repaid upon a sale/refinance of the project.
Note that investors earn a floating rate. The rates mentioned above reflect the interest rate at the 3-month LIBOR floor rate of 0.25%. If and when LIBOR rates increase, the interest rate earned by investors would increase correspondingly and any excess interest earned will be paid to investors upon maturity.
Please refer to the Series Note Supplement in the Documents section for more details about this offering.
Where does Yieldstreet lie in terms of priority?
Yieldstreet, and a Yieldstreet affiliate, have provided, on a pari passu basis, $18M of the subordinated position, with the remaining amount financed by the Originator. The senior loan was provided by a New York City based private equity firm and ranks ahead of the subordinated position. The equity was provided by the Sponsor (of which $2.4M was financed with a term loan provided by the Originator).
How do I get paid?
The loan has a term of 10 months remaining, with one option to extend for 6 months. Net of Yieldstreet’s management fee, investors are expected to earn interest at a minimum target net annualized yield of 16.8%, with ~14.1% per annum distributed monthly and ~2.7% per annum accruing and compounding monthly. All interest is expected to be held back in reserve until remaining construction is completed (expected April 2022). Thereafter successful completion, reserve interest will be paid to investors. Principal and accrued interest are expected to be repaid upon a sale/refinance of the project.
Note that investors earn a floating rate. The rates mentioned above reflect the interest rate at the LIBOR floor of 0.25%. If and when LIBOR rates increase, the interest rate earned by investors would increase correspondingly and any excess interest earned will be paid to investors upon maturity.
What is the collateral underlying the transaction?
The mortgage loan is primarily secured by collateral that is located in Harrison, New Jersey and consists of a completed 90-unit multifamily building that is currently 82% occupied, a ~95% complete 115-unit multifamily building, a 6-acre parcel of land fully entitled and approved for up to 898 multifamily units, 205k SF of retail space, a 200-key hotel, and 1,350 additional parking spaces.
The mezzanine loan is secured by a pledge of the borrower’s equity in each of the various property’s ownership entities. Invictus structured the financing with a mezzanine loan component so that, in the event of a default, they would be able to exercise remedies under the mezzanine loan, which includes a UCC foreclosure (generally more expeditious than a mortgage foreclosure).
