Sale-leasebacks through Calkain Companies can offer an alternative to conventional financing as a means of raising capital. Sale-leasebacks allow business owners the opportunity to unlock capital currently allocated to an illiquid asset.

Calkain can assist owners in the sale of their real estate, while simultaneously structuring a long-term net lease with the purchaser, allowing the owner to retain operational control of their asset.

Calkain Companies is a leader in advising its corporate clients in single tenant net lease and portfolio sale-leaseback transactions.

Calkain's team has closed over $1.7 Billion of sale-leaseback transactions. The sale-leaseback transaction allows a company to sell corporately owned real estate and simultaneously lease it back under a long-term lease with the buyer of the real estate.

The company can utilize the net proceeds from a sale-leaseback to reinvest them in a corporate purpose that will produce a higher yield. Corporately occupied real estate typically commands a return of 6% to 10%. The company can receive a higher return from allocating it's capital to such uses as:

  • Acquiring another company;
  • Buying another building;
  • Expanding the company;
  • Reducing debt; or
  • Stock repurchases.

A sale-leaseback is also an excellent mechanism to raise capital to:

  • Replenish working capital;
  • Buy-out a partner; or
  • Provide the capital that allows a senior stakeholder to retire and structure an orderly transition to the next generation of owners.

Calkain has the technical knowledge and experience to structure a complex transaction and follow it through to a successful closing. We have been consistently able to obtain numerous offers from qualified investors resulting in successful executions on behalf of our clients.

    "We were pursuing a very large sale-leaseback transaction with a company that had hundreds of locations throughout the country. We asked Calkain to perform a nearly impossible task to provide valuation and market information services in an extremely tight timeframe.

    They assembled a top-notch team and accomplished the task with results that far exceeded our expectations. The thoroughness, accuracy and speed in which they completed the project were incredible. They went above and beyond the call of duty for us and delivered exactly what they said they would, when they said they would. I'd recommend them to anyone."
