Miami-based investment firm ARC, which specializes in maximizing value from real estate debt on behalf of its investors, has acquired a 50% stake in Miami-based Yale Mortgage Funding.
Both companies will continue to operate under their current names, and the management teams will remain unchanged, according to a press release.
‘Since 1992 Yale has been unwavering in its disciplined approach to real estate valuation, relying exclusively on its own people to inspect properties and using a conservative appraisal process,’ says David Gordon, managing director of ARC. ‘That commitment has paid off, and it's one of the reasons we're so enthusiastic about this partnership.’
The deal expands ARC's existing operations by giving it a pipeline of product, including hard equity loans, merchant cash advances and nonperforming loan pools, that it can service.
Woody Kahn, president and CEO of Yale Mortgage, says his company had already been working with ARC's management for years.
‘Now, we have the chance to be more than associates,’ he says in the release. ‘We'll be partners, and that means our two enterprises will be stronger, faster and more competitive than either of our firms were on their own. It also means we'll have the opportunity to work on bigger deals and deals representing a wider range of asset classes.’
Yale Mortgage claims it services more than $1.2 billion of mortgage loans.
