Represented an Automotive Manufacturer in a Multimillion Dollar Real Estate Leaseback

Our client, an automotive component parts manufacturer, made the strategic financial decision to sell substantial real estate holdings valued at approximately $25 million to a REIT and subsequently lease those properties back under a long-term tenancy. We assisted in the drafting and negotiation of the definitive purchase and sale agreement, the master lease agreement and all associated ancillary documents and deliverables. Simultaneously, our firm represented the auto parts manufacturer in an asset-based financing arrangement and a specialty asset financing arrangement, each of which included closing of the sale-lease transaction as a condition. This required careful coordination among multiple practice groups and team members within the firm to ensure these separate but interdependent transactions all came to fruition in sync and under favorable terms for our client.
