The Lender’s Loan Facility was facing a 20%+ loss of input capital if sold vacant, as the original building had been demolished. The selling agents only solution was a mortgagee sale with significant losses to both the builder and financier.
ACMF prepared a feasibility with the builder (who stood to loose circa $300k+ due to site preparation and steel fabrication work carried out). An incentivised Leasing campaign generated enough cash flow to allow the lender to take over the project, fund the completion resulting in a substantial gain to the lender.

Project Completion allowed Developer and Builder to repay all debts with return of input capital.
