Seminole Financial Services, LLC Provides Both Debt and Equity Capital to Fund Acquisition of Commercial Mortgages

Belleair Bluffs, FL – July 22, 2011 –

Seminole Financial Services, LLC (“Seminole”) announced today the funding of two facilities, one funded to Directed Capital Resources, LLC (DCR) and the other to a newly formed entity, DCR Mortgage Partners Fund V (Fund V).The total commitment from SFS was $27 million. The business model for Fund V is consistent with prior DCR investment vehicles that have purchased commercial mortgage loans at a discount from financial institutions, or in the secondary market, that have provided investors with attractive returns.


“The principal reason for this investment is the leadership of DCR,” stated Bob Banks, Chairman and CEO of the Seminole Companies. “DCR’s track record and the success the company has had in this niche business over the past 10 years, during both good times and bad, have been outstanding. Seminole’s goal is to invest in real estate related opportunities that yield an appropriate return for our investors. We anticipate this will be the first of many similar transactions with DCR.”
