RG Steel - Sparrows Point Case Study

Sparrows Point Steel MillIn September 2012, Hilco Global acquired RG Steel's Sparrows Point steel mill ("Sparrows Point"), a 17,000,000 SF complex located in Sparrows Point, MD. Simultaneously, Hilco sourced a land buyer to acquire the underlying 3,400 acre site and assume all related environmental liabilities.

Immediately following the acquisition, Hilco Global offered all the assets of Sparrows Point for sale as part of a multiple-phase marketing process. At the conclusion of the marketing process, Hilco and partners began the environmental remediation and demolition to prepare the site for future development. Hilco Global is leading the process of a multi-party effort to establish a state-of-the-art, tri-modal deep water port at the site.

The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company

The Hilco Real Estate team was hired to rationalize and restructure A & P’s real estate portfolio.  Hilco has represented A&P since 2007, including during its acquisition of Pathmark and its bankruptcy filing. Hilco completed valuations of more than 600 locations in the combined portfolio and advised A&P with its rationalization to determine which locations to sell outright, sell and lease back, strategically close or strategically restructure.  

Hilco was engaged as A&P’s exclusive real estate consultant to advise on and assist with both the strategic planning and execution phases of the company’s restructuring and real estate disposition activities. During restructuring, HRE renegotiated the key economic terms of the portfolio of approximately 345 leased stores, offices and warehouses. Hilco secured nearly $45 million in rent concessions and restructured certain lease provisions making the leases financially sustainable for the near term.  

The disposition/investment banking portion of the assignment was broken into three distinct phases reflecting differing portfolio and geographic considerations and resulted in realized proceeds to the company of more than $65 million, with many properties sold in less than three weeks.
