Instructions

The REFM CRE JV Deals Survey form must be filled out in a single sitting, so please have your joint venture Operating Agreement in hand prior to beginning. It should only take 10 minutes or less to complete and submit the form.

REFM takes privacy very seriously and anonymizes all record submissions before including them in the database. Once your JV structure submission is vetted and approved by REFM founder Bruce Kirsch, you will be notified by email and you will receive access to the database.

Before you begin, please review the two sections below that define the context and terminology as it is used in the Survey.

The questions in the Survey use the context and nomenclature shown in the diagram below to identify the various players involved on the equity side. The diagram shows the existence of, at a minimum, a single partnership structure – that between the Overall Sponsor and the Third Party Investor. If there is a Minority Investor, there is also a separate partnership structure in place between the Sponsor and the Minority Investor (which, collectively, comprise the Overall Sponsor).

Overall Sponsor – As shown above, if there is a Minority Investor, the Overall Sponsor comprises both the Sponsor and the Minority Investor. If there is no Minority Investor, the Sponsor is the Overall Sponsor.

Sponsor – The Developer of or Principal investor in the asset.

Minority Investor – The Sponsor’s investment partner, if any. Relative to the Third Party Investor, the Minority Investor provides a minority share of capital.

Third Party Investor – The Majority Investor in the transaction.

Equity Investor Entity – any of Sponsor, Minority Investor and Third Party Investor.

Preferred Return – The priority return on invested capital paid to either just the Third Party Investor, or to both the Third Party Investor and Overall Sponsor. If there is a Minority Investor, the Preferred Return for the Sponsor and Minority Investor’s separate partnership structure is the priority return on invested capital paid to either just the Minority Investor, or to both the Minority Investor and to the Sponsor.

Pari Passu – Distribution of cash flow to the equity partners simultaneously, on a pro-rata basis to (in proportion to) the respective shares of Total Equity Investment at the time of distribution.

Promote – The additional share of net cash flow (profit) paid by the Third Party Investor to the Overall Sponsor above and beyond the Overall Sponsor’s pro-rata share of Total Equity Investment. If there is a Minority Investor, the Promote for the Sponsor and Minority Investor’s separate partnership structure is the additional share of cash flow paid by the Minority Investor to the Sponsor above and beyond the Sponsor’s pro-rata share of Equity Investment between the Sponsor and Minority Investor only.

Internal Rate of Return (IRR) Waterfall – A multi-tier sliding scale cash flow distribution structure that increases the Promote amount as various hurdles for the IRR are exceeded.

Equity Multiple Waterfall – A multi-tier sliding scale cash flow distribution structure that increases the Promote amount as various hurdles for the return on equity multiple are exceeded.
