CORAL GABLES, FL Korth Direct Mortgage Inc. (“KDM”), a leading middle-money commercial real estate lender, announced it closed a private placement offering to “qualified institutional buyers(1)” of 19,000 shares of its Series B Preferred Stock for gross proceeds of $19.0 million. Net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, which may include supporting future growth and KDM’s transition to a better execution model through aggregation of mortgage secured notes collateral.

Brean Capital, LLC served as KDM’s exclusive financial advisor and placement agent in connection with the offering.

In addition, KDM announced that it received a BBB+ corporate investment grade rating from Egan Jones Ratings Company, a nationally recognized statistical rating organization. The rating was received in connection with the transaction, which was also investment grade rated.

“Brean Capital is a valued partner to KDM. We appreciate their expertise and execution abilities to achieve this transformative transaction.  We look forward to using the capital injection from our Series B Preferred Stock offering to achieve scale that we anticipate will accelerate both our growth and profitability,” stated Holly MacDonald-Korth, President and CFO. “We have a national lending footprint, in-house servicing, a dozen account executives on our origination team, and nearly $300 million in originations since inception. We believe that this strong foundation, combined with the additional capital, will be the springboard to our next stage of growth.”

“This is a truly transformational event for KDM that we anticipate will bring us to the next level of executing our business strategy,” said Pam Hipp, Managing Director of Fixed Income. “This will assist us in completing financings that were previously beyond our reach without this rating. The investor response to our securitization platform is expanding with each deal and our unique approach is building long-term value in the CRE debt markets.”

“We believe achieving an investment grade corporate rating is an important external confirmation of our business model and what we have been building here at KDM,” commented Jon Paul Lauria, Vice President of Business Development. “As a vertically integrated originator, lender, servicer, and securitizer of commercial real estate debt, we believe the investment grade rating will be instrumental in facilitating a more cost-efficient capital structure for our business.”
