that require the deployment of between $10M and $30M of equity capital, although larger transactions may be considered. Kout Capital has a strategy of not seeking to financially engineer returns through high levels of financing within the capital structure, rather preferring to rely on the basic characteristics and property asset management opportunities of the underlying investment/property under consideration for acquisition.
