This Edition Nov 2016:

Investment terms simplified

In real estate, mezzanine debt is any subordinated debt instrument that represents a claim on a company’s assets which is senior only to that of equity shares and ranks behind senior debt in terms of who gets paid back their investment first.

The higher cost of capital associated with mezzanine financings is the result of its being a subordinated (or junior) obligation in a company’s capital structure (i.e., in the event of default, the mezzanine financing is only repaid after all senior obligations have been satisfied). In compensation for the increased risk, mezzanine debt holders require a higher return for their investment than secured or more senior lenders.
