ACG’s staff is equipped to handle projects of virtually any size. No matter what the nature of the project, ACG will ensure that the work is done timely and accurately. Below is a sample of some of our most recent work.

  • ACG performed desktop legal and financial due diligence on 614 properties and 16,720 leases in calendar year 2019 alone.  Due diligence including authentication financial models, abstracting leases, providing abstracted data in an upload format to import into property management and accounting systems, authenticating last year’s CAM and tax reconciliations, and providing estoppel preparation and review.
  • ACG completed lease abstracts, financial due diligence and models using ARGUS® software for a 1,900-lease, regional mall transaction, in just a 4-week timeframe.
  • ACG placed a full-time Senior Acquisitions Associate at a New York hedge fund by leveraging a relationship it had built with the candidate over many years.
  • Using ARGUS® software, ACG modeled and updated a 75-property office portfolio for a REIT, completing the assignment in only 3 weeks. The REIT used these new models for their own internal evaluation.
  • ACG assisted a Wall Street Investment Bank in the sale of a $1.7 billion asset.  The project included assessment of budgets, marketing assumptions, DCF analysis and preparing the final due diligence information books.
  • ACG created a database, abstracted leases and gathered information from estoppels, insurance certificates, appraisals and environmental documents to prepare “tapes” and underwriting packages to rating agencies for a $300 million securitized CMBS transaction.
  • ACG assisted a national owner of regional malls with the selection and implementation of their new property management and accounting system. The project included setting up dozens of malls, working with IT and accounting to coordinate processes and developing financial reporting package.
  • ACG was retained by a national brokerage company to abstract several hundred leases for one of its corporate clients. The project was completed in less than 4 weeks.
  • ACG performed the analysis and due diligence for a portfolio of 13 regional malls that was sold by a national insurance company.
  • ACG created a dynamic development model in Excel that provides detailed analysis for multiple investors and multiple cash-flows. The model also linked to models from ARGUS®.
  • ACG designed a lease net present value tool for a national restaurant company.  The system analyzes current and potential leases for internal evaluation with a consolidation feature that allows reports to be run across sites.  The ACG team also implemented the system and trained the end-users.
  • ACG developed an Excel budget tool for a national property management firm, integrating monthly cash flow data from ARGUS® software financial models for more than 500 properties seamlessly and without manual upload of data.
  • ACG abstracted more than 500 leases for a national retail chain as the foundation of their lease administration system.
  • ACG completed the analysis of a 132-property retail portfolio including a detailed review of recoveries.  The initial project resulted in the client retaining ACG to create the year-end CAM billings on a going forward basis.
