Pretium Successfully Completes $1.5 Billion Transaction for its First Single-Family Rental Fund

December 5, 2019

New York – December 5, 2019 – Pretium today announced it has successfully completed a transaction for its 2013 single-family rental (“SFR”) fund, capitalizing on robust institutional demand for the sector, and nearly doubling net investor equity through rental income growth and long-term appreciation. The transaction was led by Landmark Partners as well as new and existing investors, certain of whom elected to add incremental capital. The innovative transaction provided all investors the option to exit or participate in the next phase of growth.

The newly capitalized vehicle, which consists of over 20,000 cash-flowing rental homes, will continue to be managed by Pretium and serviced by its property and asset management platform, Progress Residential, the largest private SFR operator.

Donald Mullen, Pretium’s CEO, commented: “We are delighted with the support we received from new and existing investors on this transaction, which highlights global investors’ continued recognition of our demonstrated leadership in the $4 trillion SFR asset class. 2019 has been an active year for Pretium, completing a multitude of strategic events, maximizing value for investors. We look forward to 2020 as we continue to deploy additional investment capital for SFR and other Pretium investment strategies.”

Pretium has received approximately $2.5 billion of new and extended SFR capital commitments year-to-date across various investment structures. Pretium’s Progress Residential platform services over 90,000 residents and employs over 1,000 dedicated real estate professionals.

PJT Park Hill Group, Morgan Stanley and Ardea Partners served as financial advisors and Sidley Austin LLP served as lead legal advisor on the transaction, with Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP, Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP and Kirkland & Ellis LLP providing specialty counsel.
