The total purchase price includes 430 NPLs and 81 REO homes.

The $58.7 million total purchase price of the NPLs represents approximately 69.6% of the estimated broker price opinion (“BPO”) value of $84.4 million at the time of purchase.

During the third quarter (as of today), the Company has invested $308.7 million to acquire four pools consisting of 1,800 NPLs and over 300 REO homes.

Gary Beasley, Co-CEO of the Company, commented, “Our NPL business is the direct result of our partnership with Starwood Capital Group, which provides SWAY with proprietary deal flow to help us buy at attractive prices. This deal and others we’ve closed during the third quarter support our view that plentiful opportunities continue to be available in the marketplace that meet our strict underwriting criteria for portfolio composition and pricing.”

Brendan Brogan, Senior Vice President, Acquisitions at Starwood Capital Group, said “We were able to execute a complex transaction for the purchase of a unique portfolio which involved collapsing the seller’s securitization, paying off two mezzanine notes and partially paying down the seller’s debt facility.”
