August 2023: Triten Real Estate Partners and Angelo Gordon, with the assistance of their capital advisor, Patterson Real Estate Advisory Group, closed on a $100 million guidance facility to acquire industrial outdoor storage (IOS) assets across the United States. Patterson arranged the guidance facility with Axos Bank.
Triten and Angelo Gordon invested in their first IOS project together in December 2020 and have since invested in over 30 projects across the country. The partnership focuses on industrial properties, including LTL truck terminals, freight facilities, trailer and storage yards, and low-coverage industrial facilities. The Axos guidance facility will finance Triten’s & Angelo Gordon’s second portfolio. The seed portfolio for the Axos facility consisted of five assets across the United States at closing, with further plans to aggregate a scaled institutional portfolio.
The guidance facility is structured to allow for the acquisition of both stabilized and non-stabilized assets. The facility structure enables non-stabilized assets the potential to achieve enhanced terms upon successful execution of property level business plans.
“This facility provides Triten with a huge strategic advantage among competitors as we look to identify value in underperforming IOS deals,” said Brent Ozenbaugh, Chief Operating Officer for Triten Real Estate Partners. “With the facility allowing us to execute our business plan before loan covenants kick in, our plan is to use this to acquire non-stabilized deals and deals with below market rent.”
Patterson’s Sr. Managing Director, Bill Mealor, said of the transaction, “Executing in the current capital environment requires a creative approach to lending and a strong sponsorship. This transaction had all the right ingredients. We are fortunate to have worked with an esteemed sponsorship in Triten and Angelo Gordon, and Axos tailored a creative solution to fit the unique needs of a complicated transaction”.
