Iron Mountain and CONSOR Joint White Paper: Securitizing and Collateralizing Software Assets for the Capital Markets

La Jolla, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2008

Iron Mountain’s Intellectual Property Management group (IPM) and CONSOR are looking for additional experts to work on a white paper titled “Securitizing and Collateralizing Intangible Software Assets” see to provide expert commentary, recommendations and practical guidance to the primary and secondary capital markets. This white paper is for the financial community that provides investments (IPO, M&A, LBO, equity or debt position, etc.) to companies that have valuable software assets. The joint white paper is planned for inclusion in the Iron Mountain Knowledge Center to complement the current white paper “Leveraging Software Assets Via the Capital Markets” (see

The intangible assets owned by many enterprises today include traditional IP (trademarks, copyrights, and patents), and non-traditional IP (trade secrets and knowhow). This non-traditional IP is better known as the software inventory. Many investments today are secured using the traditional IP of the organization, but seldom is the nontraditional IP used.

Usually the question of including the software inventory may not have been addressed in the financing, or even thought of, but knowing it’s value and registered position can help manage and leverage the investment. Furthermore, regulations for mergers and buyouts mean that enterprises must estimate the value of existing software inventories anyway for financial and tax reasons, such as required by FASB 141, FASB 142 and FASB 157.

Iron Mountain provides the software inventory to be registered in its Escrow for securitization and CONSOR provides for software identification and valuation analysis. This registry and valuation services assist counsel and stakeholders get a handle on their investment.

Hackman Capital Affiliate Closes On $5 Million CMBS Loan

Culver City, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) January 26, 2011

Hackman Capital, a privately-held industrial and commercial real estate investment firm, announced today, on behalf of its affiliate, the closing of a $ 5 million loan to permanently finance the acquisition of three creative office buildings in Culver City, California. The office, recording and production studios, totaling 32,248 square feet, are 100% leased by Westwood One. Inc., the country’s largest independent provider of network radio programming and traffic information. The Hackman Capital affiliate acquired the portfolio in an all-cash, sale-leaseback transaction in December 2009.

The non-recourse financing was arranged by Los Angeles based capital markets advisor, Verona Capital Markets(VCM), who obtained the loan from a major Wall Street investment bank. The loan provided 10-year, fixed-rate financing with a 30-year amortization period and a 5.99% coupon. The proceeds of the loan were used to repatriate equity to the sponsor and its investors.

VCM was able to mitigate the risk associated with a single, non-investment grade tenant by highlighting the superior sponsorship behind the transaction, including its track record of operational excellence across its portfolio and its extensive experience in the Culver City submarket, said Eliav Dan, VCM’s managing principal. In addition to highlighting Westwood Ones longstanding occupancy of the buildings and the financial commitment of its majority equity stakeholder, local private equity firm The Gores Group, Dan noted that VCM assuaged the lenders concern regarding a downside scenario by emphasizing the location of the project in reinvigorated downtown Culver City, the fungibility of the buildings, the loan amount relative to land value and the go-dark value of the buildings.

According to Michael Hackman, founder and CEO of Hackman Capital, this deal is yet another example of the the vitality of the Culver City submarket. “One of the west side’s most progressive and rapidly growing areas, and a destination for creative businesses, Culver City is a vibrant community, ” said Hackman. “We are expanding our footprint here for good reasons.”

Hackman Capital, which is based in Los Angeles, has been investing in industrial and office properties since 1986. Although the company and its affiliates have a large national presence, with an existing portfolio including more than 56 buildings and 16 million square feet in markets across the country, the company is proceeding with investment strategies focusing on Southern California and the West Coast.

Of the 13 properties Hackman Capital affiliates already own in Southern California, five are in Culver City. The three Westwood One Studios are located in the Hayden-Higuera district at 8960 Washington (9,668 square feet), 8966 Washington Boulevard (14,780 square feet) and 8944 Lindblade Street (7,980 square feet).
