DALLAS, Dec. 6, 2017 – In a major strategic shift, Caddis, has announced that it has closed on its first investment fund to acquire fixed-income core medical office building (MOB) assets across the country.

Officials at the national healthcare real estate firm, which is headquartered in Dallas, launched the fund Nov. 21 by consolidating 12 MOBs previously owned by affiliates of the firm for a total of $111 million. The firm is on target to close on three additional MOBS for $56 million into the fund by year-end.

“This new fund is part of Caddis’ overall strategy of focusing on long-term ownership and capitalizing on the many opportunities available in the strong medical office building market,” Caddis CEO Jason L. Signor explains. ”The fund will pursue a low leverage strategy targeting a 55% loan to value average. This new investment vehicle enables Caddis to purchase assets all-cash and to acquire debt at a later date.”

“We are adjusting to prevailing market conditions by creating an income structure versus a gain structure, enabling us to stay highly competitive thanks to a lower cost of capital.”

“Caddis has already obtained $130 million in committed equity for fund acquisitions, which we expect to double in the next 12-plus months,” says Lance M. Hardenburg, Caddis Executive Vice President Transactions and Partner. “Overall, our goal is to acquire $200 million to $300 million in MOB assets each year during the next five years.”
