Cadre Achieves 28%+ Net IRR in Colorado Office Portfolio Sale

Cadre Delivers 1.8x Multiple on Investor Capital Through Asset Sales While Markets Grow Volatile

NEW YORK--()--Cadre, the technology-driven real estate investment manager, today announced the successful sale of an office portfolio in Colorado Springs, CO. Cadre’s investment in the portfolio generated a 28.1% realized net returns for its investors, highlighting the value discerning investment managers can deliver through institutional-quality deals.1

Through the sale of the Colorado office portfolio, Cadre further adds to its track record of delivering outsized returns to its clients and solidifies its position as a premier online real estate investing platform for individuals, advisors, and institutions. In aggregate, Cadre has delivered an average net IRR of 27.6% to its investors over fourteen total deal exits.1 The Colorado portfolio is the second office investment Cadre exited in recent months — the other, announced in July 2022, achieved a net IRR of 40.2%. The firm has returned more than $460 million in aggregate capital to investors to date.2

While Cadre believes the overall office sector is in the midst of a meaningful transformation, office investments may eventually present compelling investment opportunities in select markets around the country. To this end, Cadre recently published its list of MVP markets highlighting the most promising markets in which select office assets could outperform the national trend over the next 24 months.

“We anticipate that in the coming months and years, we will see a larger push back towards the office, either on a full-time or hybrid basis. In today’s uncertain investment landscape, we will continue to evaluate all opportunities we cross with an attractive basis and market-level tailwinds,” said Cadre’s Managing Director and Head of Investments, Dan Rosenbloom. “In completing the lifecycle of our Colorado office portfolio, we have delivered another compelling micro opportunity in a challenging macro environment.”

Cadre’s sale of the Colorado office portfolio, comprised of 13 class-A office buildings, achieved a 28.1% net IRR and 1.8x net multiple on invested capital. Cadre secured the portfolio alongside sponsor partner Crescent Real Estate off-market at a meaningful discount to replacement cost. At the time of purchase, Cadre was attracted by the opportunity to own a diversified collection of quality assets with strong existing cash flow and upside potential through additional leasing and the ability to sell assets individually. Located one hour south of Denver, the portfolio offered properties in a tightening office market that had seen seven years with high office occupancy and limited new office space to meet the demand.3 Cadre sold individual assets from the portfolio over a multi-year period, successfully leasing the properties and identifying attractive sale pricing relative to the remaining business plan risk.

“Our most recent portfolio sale demonstrates Cadre’s agility in uncertain times, working alongside experienced partners to generate returns for our investors,” said Ryan Williams, Cadre Founder, Executive Chairman, and Co-Chairman of Cadre’s Investment Committee. “While we remain highly selective amid uncertainty, our nimble approach to investment management allows us to act quickly when opportunities arise and manage effectively throughout the asset lifecycle.”

1 Data as of December 1, 2022. IRR calculation represents an equity-weighted average annualized internal rate of return (IRR) for all single-asset realized real estate investments of offerings firm-wide by Cadre since the formation of our Investment Committee on March 31, 2016 through to the date of calculation, after deduction of fees and expenses. Calculations assume no fee breaks or concessions were applied to any underlying offering. Equity multiple represents the investment multiple on equity, which is calculated by dividing the aggregate realized proceeds for the applicable investment after deduction of fees and expenses. Realized and updated target returns are inclusive of all of Cadre’s completed dispositions. Realized returns are subject to change following final distributions on sold assets. Calculations are generally made as of the date of the sale of the applicable asset and may include targeted proceeds that are to be distributed to the vehicles managed by Cadre (but which have not been realized by the vehicle as of the date of calculation). The calculation of net return figures for each investment pertains to single-asset investment vehicles only. The calculation of net return figures for each investment in a multi-investment fund vehicle is difficult, if not impossible, to prepare with accuracy due to the estimation of fund-wide expenses and other variable fees applicable to each investment that are necessary for such calculations. Returns reflect net performance and are not audited. Other vehicles, such as the Cadre Direct Access Fund LP and parallel vehicles, are also participants in these investments.

2 Gross Distributions to Investors refers to the sum of any income distributions, sale gains, and return of capital without deduction for any investor-specific withholding or preferred equity payments. Updated on 12/1/2022.
