Tricon Capital Group Announces US$59 Million Investment to Develop an Active Adult Community in Charlotte, North Carolina

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES./

TORONTO, July 24, 2014 /CNW/ - Tricon Capital Group Inc. (TSX: TCN) ("Tricon" or the "Company") today announced that it has closed a US$59.0 million investment (the "Transaction") to support the acquisition, development and sale of almost 1,200 homes on a 606 acre site in northwest Charlotte, North Carolina (the "Project" or the "Property"). One of Tricon's institutional partners has committed US$39.0 million as a side-car with an additional US$15.7 million and US$4.3 million committed by U.S. fund Tricon XI (the "Fund") and Tricon, respectively. The developer of the Project will be Shea Homes ("Shea" or the "Developer"), one of the largest private homebuilders in the United States.

"We are excited to expand our relationship with Shea, one of the premier1 homebuilders in the U.S. and a leader in the development of highly amenitized communities targeted at the baby boomer market," said David Berman, Tricon's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We believe that the Trilogy Lake Norman investment offers a unique opportunity to take advantage of the strong growth fundamentals in both the Charlotte and the Active Adult market segments."

Investment Highlights:

  • The Property is located in Northwest Charlotte, near Lake Norman, which is over 32,000 acres2 in size and is a popular amenity utilized for a number of recreational activities including boating and fishing.
  • The Active Adult demographic is expected to be one of the fastest growing population segments in the U.S. over the next decade3 and the Carolinas were ranked as the two most desirable retirement destinations in the Del Webb 2010 Baby Boomer Survey given, in part, the strong relative affordability and temperate climate.
  • The Property is located less than one mile from the recently expanded Hwy-16, which provides convenient access to Charlotte Douglas International Airport (approximately 20-25 minutes) and downtown Charlotte (approximately 30 minutes).
  • There are currently a limited number of competitive age restricted communities within the market place4, with only one other actively selling large-scale Active Adult community in Charlotte.
  • Charlotte experienced 2.1% and 2.7% year-over-year population and employment growth in 2013, significantly above the national growth rates of 0.7% and 1.7%5, respectively. Furthermore, median household income in Charlotte grew at 3.6% in 2013, over 1.4 times the national growth rate6.
  • The commitment increases Tricon's AUM by $43.3 million or 2.1%, to a total of approximately $2.1 billion.
