BMC Capital Secures $30M in Bond Financing for Portfolio of 17 Chili’s Restaurants

July 14, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Atlanta, Ga. ó BMC Capital announced on Thursday, June 29, 2006, that it originated a bond financing package totaling over $30 million for the purchase of 17 Chiliís restaurant buildings throughout the western United States.

The package consisted of four individual cash out refinance loans on the properties. The loans were fixed for twenty years with twenty year amortization rates. The packageís DCR was roughly 1.05x with loan-to-values ranging from 85% to 90%. The funding was non-recourse and at roughly 155 basis points over the corresponding Department of the Treasury note rate. Twelve of the properties were ground lease; the remaining five were fee simple.

Tim Kinney, BMC Capitalís Vice President in Atlanta states, ďThis deal showcases BMC Capitalís ability to execute on a variety of transactions including ones which other firms would consider Ďexoticí or non-market standard. By taking this transaction to the corporate debt market rather than to more traditional lenders, like conduit or life companies, we were about to realize higher leverage and better terms for our borrower. BMC Capital is already the nationís leader in NNN restaurant loans, and we anticipate this new capability will further advance our leadĒ.

The loan was originated by Tim Kinney of BMC Capitalís Atlanta office. BMC Capital is a leader in the restaurant financing arena and anticipates financing more than 100 NNN restaurant loans this year.
