A Sale Lease-Back Buy-Back (SLB3SM) is best suited to companies that require capital to grow but want to own their properties long-term. Through the SLB3SM program, AIM offers companies a unique and cost effective way to free up capital while deleveraging the company.
SLB3SM is the purchase of the business property(s) from the Company, the long-term (20 years) leaseback by the Company, and the optional repurchase of the property(s) by the Company at a pre-determined price after year 5 of the lease. A key differentiator, which cannot be stressed enough, is the buyback feature.
AIM is a principal providing capital to investment and sub-investment grade middle-market companies and private equity firms seeking to realize liquidity and value tied up in corporate real estate. Unlike others who focus only on investment grade companies, AIM works with companies experiencing temporary financial difficulties and companies experiencing rapid growth.
AIM underwrites each transaction as a partnership and work closely with management to achieve their financial objectives. With over a half century of corporate and real estate valuation experience AIM excels at transactions others are unable or unwilling to underwrite.
