Tax-efficient Sale-leaseback and Debt Refinance for a Multi-unit Franchisee

Franchise Capital Advisors (recently re-branded to now ZEL Capital Partners) arranged and closed a tax-efficient Sale-Leaseback and Debt Refinance transaction for a long-standing multi-unit Sonic franchisee in excess of $15 million. The financial team was able to structure the complex transaction in a manner that the franchisee was able to extrapolate the equity out of a select group of the company’s properties while eliminating and minimizing the potential tax burden associated with depreciation recapture and capital gains.
