HCM Finances Next Generation
IT Facilities and Distributed Energy Projects

Hooked Capital Management applies deep subject matter expertise in energy, structured finance and mission critical facilities program management. HCM’s unique collective capabilities produce innovative financing solutions that get hard to finance projects completed and generate outsized returns for investors and operators.

Financing for IT Centric Enterprises, Colocation Sites and Managed Service Providers

HCM’s evolved execution program tightly maps facility utilization to operating expenses and the cash flows necessary to support low cost debt in direct correspondence to individual business development requirements. Our financing programs and tools for staged investment and phased build-out of these complex projects virtually eliminate stranded capacity, maximize efficiency and reduce operating expenses. This in turn makes our projects more cost efficient and more competitive in the marketplace for operators and developers.

Managing Energy and IT Projects for Investors, Asset Managers and Real Estate Developers

HCM’s expertise, analytical tools and diversification offer an unparalleled way to participate in the highest performing real estate asset class with both reduced risk and a clear path to a hefty return. Our projects require relatively small capital outlay; enhance income for idle liquid or illiquid assets and produce a substantial back-end profit. HCM projects are modulated; success-based quantitative endeavors that capture additional revenue by including onsite power generation. The additional income amplifies investment returns and promotes sustainability.

We Resolve Persistent Market Inefficiencies

HCM breaks through the ‘chicken-and-egg’ conundrum between preleasing and construction funding. We support mission critical facilities development and execution goals for each project and phase. HCM essentially extends a ‘just in time’ model for data center buildout along specific thresholds for expansion with predetermined credit lines, and backs it with secure predictable investment results.
