We are proud to share some big news from one of our clients, Baceline Investments LLC. The company, which is a private real estate investment and management company with neighborhood lifestyle centers throughout the Central United States, recently announced the establishment of a new syndicated loan relationship with KeyBank National Association.
KeyBank National Association is the lead bank in the $125 million senior secured credit facility for the Baceline Income Property Holding Company, LLC. The syndication is comprised of national and international banks. The facility includes an accordion feature to increase the loan commitment up to a maximum of $250 million, providing flexibility as the portfolio grows. Proceeds from the facility will be used primarily for acquisition purposes.
In December, 2017 Baceline completed a $153 million recapitalization with KeyBank, including 27 properties, creating a new income-producing investment vehicle for Baceline’s investor base.
“The facility partnership with KeyBank National Association is an exciting milestone for us and elevates Baceline to a new level, providing a strong foundation and framework for future growth,” said David Puchi, Baceline’s Managing Partner. “Our longstanding relationship with Key ensures that we are able to grow our portfolio of stable, income-producing properties to 200 properties over the next 3 to 4 years. The resulting portfolio will be perfectly positioned for a favorable public or large scale private institutional exit.”
Baceline’s investment niche focuses on holdings in the country’s heartland and is designed to benefit investors who seek to earn consistent, meaningful levels of distributable income from their investment portfolio. Their properties focus is on neighborhood shopping centers that offer everyday goods and services to local communities.

Raising money is a continuous process that is necessary for any company to grow. A strong and compelling pitch deck is how you will be able to present company goals to investors in order to get the funding you need.
A pitch deck is a brief overview presentation that provides investors with a clear understanding of what your business is all about. Typically, pitch decks are 15-25 slides and showcase your company’s product, technology, business plan and team in a clear, concise and persuasive presentation. Raising capital is no easy task, so it is important that your pitch deck is engaging. The content should provide guidance for your investors, driving them to want to write a check.
We recently completed a pitch deck for our client, Baceline Investments. Here is a breakdown of some of the key sections. The first section focused on conveying to investors who Baceline Investments is as well as what their 5-year growth plan and vision is. This gives investors an overview of their goals and the strategy which they will implement to reach those benchmarks. The next slides share their story—who they are, how they evolved and the 20-year proven track record of success.
The pitch deck then moves onto their financial models, showing investors key performance indicators, graphs and monthly performance figures. For a company like Baceline Investments, having concrete numbers supporting their case is very persuasive and easy for investors to get behind and support. The last big section of their pitch deck explained to investors what their success will look like when they reach their 5 year goals. Their pitch deck incorporated their brand’s look and feel with consistent messaging to relay to investors their expertise and vision.
A strong pitch deck will be persuasive and complete as well as clear and concise. The entire point of a pitch deck is to convince investors that you have identified a problem and created a solution that they would be foolish not to invest in. Your pitch deck needs to focus on your business ideas and look at the complete picture. It’s easy to get bogged down in design elements but no matter how creative your deck is, it’s worthless if you don’t engage your audience. You have to be meaningful with every element of the pitch deck so every slide is telling an important part of a larger story.

We have completed over 50 pitch decks for our clients and are experts in building compelling pitch decks that tell the story of your company in a visually appealing way.
