NewPoint Completes $199 Million Freddie Mac Q-Deal Multifamily Securitization

Transaction, Backed by Eight Multifamily Bridge Loans, Marks NewPoint’s First Securitization and the First Freddie Mac Q-Deal in 2023

New York, NY (June  6, 2023) – NewPoint Real Estate Capital announces today that its bridge lending affiliate (collectively, “NewPoint”) has completed a $199 million securitization of eight floating-rate first-mortgage bridge loans secured by multifamily properties through a Freddie Mac-sponsored Q-Deal transaction (“Q-022”). This is NewPoint’s first Q-Deal since launch and the first Freddie Mac Q-Deal to be issued in 2023. The securitization was co-led by Barclays and Wells Fargo, with additional support from Citigroup and Drexel Hamilton. The Freddie Mac Q-Deal program is highly mission-driven and provides liquidity to financial institutions, sponsors and originators. 

The Q-022 securitization is backed by NewPoint-financed communities totaling 1,705 units:

  • Properties – The eight garden-style properties are located across Texas (six), Nevada (one) and New Jersey (one) and were built between 2016 and 2022.
  • Affordability – As of issuance, 88% of units are affordable at 80% of AMI, 57% at 60% of AMI and 16% at 50% of AMI.
  • Purpose – Seven loans facilitated acquisitions; one was a refinance.
  • Terms – Original loan terms ranged from 24 to 36 months; the weighted average remaining initial loan term at issuance was 15 months.  

“The completion of this transaction marks a significant milestone in NewPoint’s growth and showcases our commitment to innovation,” said David Brickman, Chief Executive Officer at NewPoint. “We are incredibly grateful for our partnership with Freddie Mac, and I commend the entire deal team for successfully bringing this offering to market during such a volatile period. The Q-Deal’s strategic execution allows us to extend greater flexibility in our collective drive to support the creation and preservation of high-quality housing.” 

Since launching in 2014, the Freddie Mac Q-Deal program has achieved more than $7.6 billion in issuance, with an original loan count exceeding 2,360 loans.
