Red Oak Capital Sells Out Latest Offering Ahead Of Schedule
July 25, 2019 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsGRAND RAPIDS, MI (July 25, 2019) – Red Oak Capital Group (RED OAK) announced today that its latest offering, Red Oak Capital Fund II has reached the maximum statutory capacity of $50,000,000 in capital investments – ahead of schedule.
"The support and response from our broker-dealers and industry partners has been nothing short of amazing." said Chip Cummings, CEO of Red Oak.
The $50 million Reg A+ Tier II bond offering was qualified by the SEC in late 2018, and was scheduled to close in September. However, stronger than anticipated interest in the bond product and wide spread industry support has led to the early closing.
"We have an amazing sales and distribution team" added Cummings. "With 21 selling agreements with key strategic industry partner firms, we have been able to reach a broad investor market very quickly."
Structured as a general solicitation income bond product, the offering was also attractive in the marketplace. The bonds which are securitized by senior commercial mortgage notes, are backed by existing income producing commercial real estate properties, and offer a quarterly distribution with a fixed maturity date.
As an institutional quality bridge-bank lender, Red Oak Capital takes advantage of short-term gaps in the traditional commercial finance markets, and specializes in the origination, underwriting and acquisition of these smaller commercial real estate debt instruments. Strong growth and demand for redevelopment capital in the commercial real estate sector has led to expansion for private equity lending firms like Red Oak.
Established by the SEC in 2015 under the JOBS Act, the Regulation A+ Tier II offerings allows companies to sell up to $50 million in securities in a 12-month period. In addition, it requires regular financial filings and audited financial statements creating greater transparency.
To further meet demand, Red Oak Capital Fund III, LLC is currently in review, with an anticipated release in August. Fund III will have the same structure as a $50M Regulation A+, Tier II fixed coupon bond offering, with additional contingent interest paid at maturity.
Partner and the Head of National Sales and Distribution, Kevin Kennedy adds "Investors today are looking for good regular income, backed by solid assets that are risk adverse. We've been fortunate to put together a team that can deliver that. That's why we are excited about the release of Fund III as well."
Crescent Securities in Dallas served as the managing broker dealer for the offering, and has been retained for Fund III as well. The national accounting firm of UHY is the auditing firm, and the securities firm of Kaplan Voekler Cunningham & Frank acts as counsel.
