The IAVI experience Challenges –These are complex transactions Our first transaction (New Markets) had one equity investor (US Bank) and two tax credit allocatees (UFA and Greystone) Our second transaction (Historic and New Markets) was layered on top of the first deal, with multiple parties: equity investor and tax credit allocatee (Bank of America), the developer of the BIOBAT (Phase 3 Properties), and the BIOBAT (joint NYC EDC and NY State entity) –Our project had to be consistent with the Historic regulations –Timing----our Historic transaction had to close before we moved into Laboratory –There were a number of issues outside of our control: The larger Historic transaction and business agreement for the BIOBATon which our deal depends Lessons Learned –These transactions can be important sources of additional revenue---and can be a win-win. But are resource intensive (management time, legal expenses) –Have expert advisors to held navigate the regulations and documentation –The more the participants can understand the key transaction points (documentation, risks, commitments) early in the process---the better
