BUFFALO, NY – April 19, 2018 – John Svec, Managing Director of the Largo Group of Companies, arranged a $14MM permanent first mortgage to acquire a portfolio of Midwestern bank branches. The 11 Wisconsin banks are secured by 10 and 15-year leaseback terms to BMO Harris Bank, a multinational credit tenant (A+/Aa3). Svec negotiated attractive leverage, a 5-year term, and a low fixed rate. To further compliment his client’s ‘Renovate & Resell’ strategy, Svec arranged an interest-only period during renovation and 0% prepayment penalty upon sale.
