which they cannot quickly or efficiently get out,” said Real Liquidity CEO Kevin Guy . “To divest their equity in these assets, the sponsors and limited partners tradition- ally have had to first go to the existing shareholders and/or an inefficient private market where they are forced to take a significant discount in the value of their shares — some- times at 50 cents on the dollar, or even worse. It’s painful. Now there’s a better solution for sellers to get closer to fair market value.” In addition, Real Liquidity provides opportunity and a service to an accredited inves- tor class that never before had access to a private market that is estimated at $5 trillion. “Whether it’s a partner dis- pute, family reorganization, or different owner investment objectives,” Guy said, “at some point in the future, the goal of general and limited partners is the same — to liquidate some or all of their equity in an asset in which they have ownership.” The most common reasons a seller desires liquidity include: a partner/family dispute; a significant change-of-life event

or a different investment; or, typically, where one partner wants to divest their owner- ship interest in the asset while the other partner(s) want to remain an owner. “We took the time to get the right opinions from the best minds before developing the technology and processes,” Guy said. “Our advisory board members will be publicly an- nounced in the near future.” To provide a desirable mar- ketplace to a pool of accredited investors, the Real Liquid- ity team works with selected sponsors and management teams to onboard quality, seasoned, and cash-flowing assets. Although applicable to assets of nearly all sizes and values, most properties vetted through the process are in the $5 million - $50 million range. The vetting process includes performing in-depth due-diligence on each asset. Real Liquidity has begun conducting due-diligence for the first wave of properties, while continuing to attract other commercial properties in the Multifamily, Office, Retail, Hospitality, Industrial, and Mixed-use markets. n
