Structuring Programmatic Real Estate Joint Ventures: Structures, Deal Sharing and Exclusivity, Pooling Variations
Negotiating Key Deal Terms From Sponsor and Equity Investor Perspectives
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will discuss programmatic real estate joint ventures (JVs) and how they differ from traditional, single investment JV relationships, alternative structures for programmatic JVs, and key JV agreement terms to consider and negotiate. The program will present these issues in an interactive format from the perspectives of counsel for the developer/operator and counsel for the capital investor.
- Programmatic JV structures
- Deal sharing and exclusivity
- The pooling of economics, distribution of returns, payment of promote and clawback provisions
- Governance issues
- Financing guaranties and related issues
- Default remedies and removal rights
- Deadlocks, lockouts, and exit provisions
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What are the typical structures used in programmatic JVs for real estate investment?
- How can the parties bridge the gap between disparate objectives with respect to deal sharing and exclusivity?
- How do the issues shift with respect to single vs. pooled investment and the corresponding distribution and clawback of promotes?
- How do competing expectations of operators and capital investors regarding governance issues, guaranties, and exit rights typically get resolved in various structures?
