NEWARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Prudential Huntoon Paige today announced that it closed almost $2 billion in multifamily (affordable and market-rate), healthcare (nursing homes and assisted living facilities), and hospital loans in 2010 on behalf of the Federal Housing Administration. Prudential Huntoon Paige is a unit of Prudential Mortgage Capital Company, the commercial mortgage lending business of Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE: PRU).
The $1.9 billion originated in 2010 is a record for the company since its founding in 1993.
“The ability of Prudential Huntoon Paige to achieve its best year on record illustrates the strength of the FHA business and the high demand for these properties,” said Marie Head, managing director and head of Prudential Huntoon Paige. “These results show that the fundamentals for FHA lending remain strong.”
The business has grown dramatically over the past five years in spite of the recent financial crisis that severely hampered the commercial mortgage market. Tremendous gains came in three sectors in 2011:
- The company generated nine hospital transactions in 2010, worth nearly $1.2 billion, a nearly 40 percent increase from the $860 million closed during 2009. Prudential Huntoon Paige added a hospital specialty group in 2009 and is strategically positioned to continue to grow its FHA-insured hospital business by allowing hospitals to greatly reduce transaction and negative arbitrage costs associated with traditional bond executions.
- The multifamily category generated 68 loans worth $734 million in 2010, more than double 2009 production.
- Prudential Huntoon Paige completed 12 healthcare industry-related loans totaling more than $100 million in 2010, up from the seven loans it completed a year earlier worth nearly $80 million.
