Strong Demand Results In Winning Bids At 48% Of Unpaid Principal Balance

BOSTON, May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- KDX Ventures, a joint venture between DebtX and KEMA Advisors, successfully auctioned $306 million in non-performing multifamily and healthcare loans for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Sixty-seven bidders submitted more than 200 individual and pool bids for the 26 assets offered for sale in April.  The 12 winning bids generated proceeds of more than 48% of unpaid principal balance.  All winning bids were submitted on individual assets.

"The strong proceeds from this HUD sale demonstrate the pent-up demand and liquidity for commercial real estate assets," said DebtX CEO Kingsley Greenland.  "Over the past two years, investors have amassed a tremendous amount of capital to invest in commercial real estate loans, but there has been only a small amount of product available for sale."

KDX Ventures (KDX) is a partnership between DebtX, the largest marketplace for loans, and KEMA Advisors, a boutique investment banking firm. KDX Ventures is HUD's exclusive loan sale advisor.
