RG Steel - Sparrows Point Case Study

Sparrows Point Steel Mill

In September 2012, HRP led the venture that acquired RG Steel’s Sparrows Point steel mill (“Sparrows Point”), a 17,000,000 SF complex located in Sparrows Point, MD.  Simultaneously, HRP sourced ELT (Environmental Liability Transfer) to acquire the underlying 3,100 acre site and assume all related environmental liabilities. At closing, HRP owned all improvements and license to operate at Sparrows Point.

Immediately following the acquisition, HRP attempted to market the mill as a going concern.  At the conclusion of the unsuccessful marketing process, HRP began the environmental remediation and demolition to prepare the site for future development. HRP is leading the process of a multi-party effort in finalizing the remediation plan for all 3,100 acres and establishing 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.
