LOS ANGELES, California – February 9, 2007– The Helvetica Group, a real estate investment bank and private money lender announced today that it provided a $10.0M alternative finance transaction to a developer of a new high-end luxury home in Henderson, Nevada. The financing helped the developer retire a construction loan that had matured, and to payoff other liens as well as provided sufficient liquidity to allow the developer more time to properly market the almost 20,000 sq ft. mansion overlooking Lake Las Vegas.


“Once again, this transaction reinforces our ability to close complex financing transactions quickly and efficiently” said President and Founder, Chad Mestler. “We continue to demonstrate our ability to create flexible and creative ways to structure difficult transactions where traditional lenders fail.” Helvetica arranged a sale leaseback transaction where an investor purchased the property and leased it back to the developer while the developer retained an option to repurchase the property. This transaction allowed the developer full access and right to continue to market the property at the $14.0 Million price tag to capture the maximum profit. This transaction also provided the developer with more cash out than would otherwise be provided through a traditional lender while allowing an investor the opportunity to rollover proceeds from another investment sale.
