Northmarq Arranges Sale Leaseback of Texas Industrial Portfolio

Northmarq, one of commercial real estate’s leading investment sales brokerage firms, has completed the sale leaseback of a two-location portfolio occupied by Oryx Oilfield Services. The facilities are located at 900 East Highway 11 in Kermit, Texas and 922 Farm to Market 81 in Goliad, Texas. Together, the transaction included 13 buildings totaling more than 118,000 square feet. Northmarq’s John Rotunno represented the tenant, who executed a long-term lease at the time of sale. The portfolio was acquired for an undisclosed price by Real Capital Solutions, a private equity group based in Colorado.

“The impact of COVID-19 on sectors outside of non-essential retail was substantial in some cases, and Oryx’s oil field service business faced challenges including a decline in revenue,” said Rotunno, Associate Director in Northmarq’s New York office. “By executing a sale leaseback of their real estate, Oryx can now consolidate debt and focus company resources on the business’s future growth, providing critical working capital.”

With roots in the oil and gas industry, Oryx has a solid history of service to key customers, providing facility maintenance and construction, pipeline construction and fabrication facilities for facility components. The portfolio properties serve as mission critical locations for Oryx’s service operations, and the properties feature office and warehouse space, manufacturing and fabrication facilities, as well as an abundance of fenced acreage totaling approximately 95 acres.
