CIT said it arranged a $62 million senior secured credit facility to Exeter Property Group, a real estate private equity firm that acquires, develops and manages commercial properties across the U.S. The facility will be used to purchase eight light industrial, distribution and R&D buildings in Mt.

“This transaction highlights our continued efforts to meet the financing needs of our middle market real estate clients in a way that positions them for success,” said Steve Reedy, managing director, CIT Real Estate Finance. “These properties are in prime submarket locations and add to Exeter’s growing portfolio of properties.”
