The Case for Exotic Notes in Commercial Real Estate Transactions

Fran Mastroianni of Goodwin Procter LLP, published a story in Real Estate Investment & Finance: The Case for Exotic Notes in Commercial Real Estate Transactions.

“PIK (payment-in-kind) Notes and Toggle Notes, which began as alternative debt instruments with safety valve features attractive to the real estate industry, became a life jacket keeping overly aggressive financially engineered deals afloat.
