McGladrey Performs Seller Due Diligence for $1.7 Billion Structured Loan Sale

NEWS RELEASE

Chicago – September 2, 2010 – RSM McGladrey, Inc., a leading professional services firm operating under the McGladrey brand, recently announced the completion of the seller due diligence for a $1.7 billion structured sale. The due diligence project included detailed analyses of more than 200 loans and 100 real estate-owned assets across the United States. It also required verifying and organizing asset information and presenting in a concise manner to aide the due diligence process of investors.

“We’ve seen a steadily growing number of banks disposing of assets through structured loan sales over the past several months, particularly at the regional bank level,” said Jose Vivar, a real estate practice director at RSM McGladrey, Inc. “Organizations that work closely with a third-party partner for structured sales often realize quicker turnaround times. Since our team assembled a large set of complex data in such a short timeframe, our client was able to complete its transaction faster than anticipated.”

McGladrey assurance, tax and consulting services meet the diverse needs of clients in the real estate industry. We have provided transaction support services — including due diligence for sellers and buyers — to clients for more than 20 years.
