EB-5 Benefits

EB-5 Benefits

  • SFM GLOBAL EB-5 capital allows the infrastructure to be phased and costs spread, so that reuse and new development activities can financially support the planned improvements.
  • SFM GLOBAL EB-5 capital allows the infrastructure project to get started and combined with conventional development fees, lease income, land sales and other revenue sources to continue the infrastructure building and eventually fund repayment to the EB-5 project partnership.
  • Once the infrastructure is built, new construction occurs, new companies bring new jobs and can apply conventional land-based financing mechanisms to build structures on the newly built infrastructure and create a new sustainable tax base.
  • Once new construction takes place, Government agencies have the availability of tax increment revenue to fund a portion of the infrastructure additionally other sources of funds are available such as new market tax credits. Transit Occupancy Tax (TOT), Sales Tax and other sources of revenue private enterprises pay.
  • SFM GLOBAL EB-5 capital acts as “seed” capital that provides funding otherwise unavailable for Government Agencies to fund the required local matching component of Federal and State grants and loans, thus increasing the capital available to be spent on infrastructure building.
  • Private industry operates in much the same way as government’s. Private industry utilizes SFM GLOBAL EB-5 funding as seed capital to begin their projects and SFM GLOBAL’s seven year interest only loan structure allows for projects to move forward. The projects are built, they begin generating revenue and thus have several sources available for repayment. Refinancing an existing stabilized producing asset is easier and cheaper than finding start-up capital.

The SFM GLOBAL business plan approach is simple. EB-5 Benefits with SFM GLOBAL EB-5 partnerships enter into a seven-year loan that requires interest only payments. Depending on the particular project, these loan agreements are with Government Agencies, public/private partnerships or private developers. SFM GLOBAL EB-5 funds are combined with additional public and private funds to finance the construction of a specific project or projects. The benefit of this early-stage “seed” financing is to jump- start the activity of infrastructure construction, improvements, or repair in the absence of other reasonable funding sources. The timing and resources necessary to complete each project will vary depending on the nature of the project. Some projects are one- time events with a single participant, while other projects are multi-phase long-term projects. The availability of early-stage alternative financing for infrastructure and construction projects initiates a chain reaction of economic development that results in significant new American job creation.
