Bonita Springs-based investment adviser, TerraCap Management, LLC, has facilitated a trade between two private shareholders of its real estate private equity fund, TerraCap Partners II, LP. The trade was accepted on April 3, 2015 at a 15.8% premium; market price for such a trade is generally 20% or more below the shares’ net asset value. The trade is expected to be finalized shortly.
“We were happy to help an investor who requested liquidity and organized a bid process to bring it to investors in the fund,” says TerraCap’s Robert Gray, and his partner, Steve Hagenbuckle, agrees. “We had fourteen enthusiastic LPs interested in increasing their position in TerraCap Partners II, our second deep value real estate fund,” explains Mr. Hagenbuckle. “For one LP to sell a position to another LP at a nice profit speaks volumes.”
TerraCap Partners II had its final close in September 2013 with $102 million in equity. The fund owns properties throughout the state of Florida, including the recently renovated La Quinta Inn & Suites in Bonita Springs, Disney-anchored Celebration Center in Orlando, and Sarasota Sun Center—home of the Sarasota YMCA. The fund’s recent sales include Coconut Office Center in Estero, and the Hampton Inn & Suites in Ft. Myers Beach.
