BrightSpire Capital Pays Off $200 Million Preferred Indebtedness to Goldman Sachs Asset Management Vintage Funds

Dec 23, 2021

Projected Net Increase of $0.53 to Company’s GAAP Book Value

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 23, 2021-- On December 22, 2021, subsidiaries of BrightSpire Capital, Inc. (NYSE: BRSP) (“BrightSpire Capital” or the “Company”), one of the largest publicly traded commercial real estate (CRE) credit REITs, completed the payoff of its “5-Investment Preferred Financing”, previously provided by the Vintage Funds within Goldman Sachs Asset Management. While 4 of the underlying investments were sold in the Company’s recently closed co-invest portfolio sale, the payoff of this preferred financing also allows the Company to take back 100% ownership of its triple-net warehouse distribution portfolio leased to a national grocery chain.

The combination of the co-invest portfolio sale and payoff of the “5-Investment Preferred Financing” will result in a projected net increase of approximately $0.53 to the Company’s GAAP book value and approximately $0.69 to undepreciated book value, details of which and other fourth quarter 2021 results to be set forth in the Company’s upcoming annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.

“The combination of the previously announced co-invest portfolio sale and this preferred financing payoff have meaningfully simplified the BrightSpire portfolio. Completing these two transactions are important milestones for BrightSpire and the continued execution of our business plan as we head into 2022. Thank you to the team at Goldman Sachs Asset Management for your support and partnership throughout the duration of our financing relationship,” commented Andy Witt, COO of BrightSpire Capital.
