NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/13 -- Prospect Capital Corporation (NASDAQ: PSEC)("Prospect") announced today that Prospect has closed on a $76.5 million investment in The Resort, a prominent multi-family residential community in Pembroke Pines, Florida.
Prospect has made this latest real estate investment by investing debt and equity into its portfolio company APH Property Holdings, LLC ("APH"), which owns a tax-efficient private real estate investment trust ("REIT"). APH's REIT has invested in The Resort as well as other multi-family properties, which are all being actively managed by property management firms that have co-invested with APH's REIT in each transaction. APH's REIT has now made seven real estate investments aggregating $151.6 million.
The Resort is located in Pembroke Pines, a community close to both Fort Lauderdale and Miami. The Resort is a premier residential community encompassing 1,520 rental units in 190 buildings on approximately 85 acres. The Resort offers villa-style rental apartments in a low-density environment with extensive luxury amenities. Prospect has invested alongside The Carroll Organization, an experienced owner and operator of multi-family properties in the U.S. Southeast.
"Prospect is actively pursuing real estate investments, particularly in the multi-family residential real estate asset class," said Bart J. de Bie, a Managing Director of Prospect Capital Management LLC. "These rent-producing properties generate attractive current yields as well as long-term capital appreciation potential."
With more than $4.7 billion of assets and committed capital across more than 120 portfolio companies, Prospect is one of the largest and most diversified companies in the business development company peer universe.
