Public companies are starting to take a hard look at their real assets to determine if they really need to own them. Case in point, Motorola which began taking an asset light approach to its balance sheet in May when it sold two of its Schaumburg assets to Oak Street Real Estate Capital and simultaneously leased them back. Now they’ve completed the sale of the last remaining buildings on their Schaumburg campus. Sale-leasebacks make a lot of sense for companies looking to create cash to invest in their core business. By signing a long term lease tenants can maximize value upon exit, control the asset for as long as they want and use the proceeds to reinvest in their core business.
