Hunt Companies, Inc. (“Hunt”) has entered into a definitive agreement to sell Hunt Real Estate Capital (“HREC”) to ORIX Real Estate Capital (“OREC”), an affiliate of ORIX Corporation (“ORIX”). ORIX is a Tokyo-based financial services firm.
Under Hunt’s ownership, HREC has grown into a top-20 non-bank multifamily lender with a full suite of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, bridge and mezzanine lending solutions. HREC employs over 250 professionals and maintains 25 offices across the United States.
HREC’s growth, demonstrated success and ultimate sale to ORIX is a testament to Hunt’s strategy to deploy capital into best-in-class operating businesses, real estate assets and infrastructure assets that benefit from Hunt’s capital resources and 70-year history as an owner and operator of real assets.
Hunt expects the sale to close in 2019, subject to customary closing conditions, third party consents and regulatory approvals.
