Exit Strategy

The exit strategy for plan a is to obtain a commercial mortgage on the property (once practical completion has been reached) and use those funds to repay investors their initial investment and profits which are calculated from the mortgage amount of £13,478,400.

Should we not be successful in gaining planning permission for the professional co-living development, plan B is to build the existing planning permission of 69 residential dwellings which would then be sold on the open market. Under this assumption, we forecast equity investors' return to be 79.70% over a 24 month term.

Should the planned exit of selling the 69 open market units experience delays (even though 6 months has been allocated for a sales period) an alternative option is to rent the properties instead and take out a buy to let mortgage (otherwise known as build to rent). The current buy to let portfolio mortgage criteria permits up to 75% LTV against the GDV, which calculates as £8,700,000 which would redeem the senior debt development facility of £7,888,476. In this scenario, investors would then enjoy their percentage shareholding of the net rental income generated during the entire hold period leading up to the disposal of the property to a single purchaser (such as an institution or REIT). Thereafter, investors would earn additional return from the sale of the property (similar to that of selling the 69 units on the open market).
