Key Positives

  • Quest Diagnostics is an investment-grade corporation.

Key Risks to Consider

  • High leverage (63%) creates a significant risk of foreclosure.

  • The recent changes in the treasuries yield spread may make it difficult for the sponsor to cover their debt terms. 

  • The largest tenant has fewer than three-years remaining on their lease.

  • The sponsor did not obtain a Physical Condition Report before acquiring the properties.

  • Two tenants are not rated by an agency, and their financials are not available. The loan is essentially only 7-years, while the remaining three are on hyper-amortization schedules. This coincides with Hillsborough Country Tax Collectors lease expiration in the eighth-year, which would detract from cash flow.

  • The Sponsor’s models show significant Tenant Improvements and Leasing Commission cost ($1.76 million) in the eight-year, which coincides with the hyper-amortization period. The cost could negatively affect the return of client capital upon exit.

  • The disposition fee is not contingent on returning client capital. 

  • The ongoing fees are high.

  • There is a low investor CAP rate.
