Project Finance and Bond Financings

The principals of Cedar have executed over $1 billion of bond financings for health care facilities, public power, manufacturing and utilities. In addition, Cedar Ventures has raised both tax exempt bond financings and equity funds for Senior Housing communities, Work Force Housing Communities and is in active discussions with Charter Schools, alternative energy and affordable housing projects.  Using tax-exempt bonds, about 75%-85% of total project cost can be financed on a non-recourse, no personal guarantee basis. Fixed rates with terms ranging from 10-30 years are available. Cedar also can provide conventional bank financing through a loan syndication product and through a 'bridge to HUD ' loan where a bank provides a construction loan and its HUD affiliate provides the permanent, long term financing. 

Cedar has also worked with EB5 funding sources on a few of its transactions, providing the equity.Cedar's experience in start-up and early stage investing enhances its ability to get project financings completed. It is sensitive to the due diligence mind set of the bond lender.
