Jennifer Dawson, writing for the Houston Business Journal, reports that Patrick Hicks and Cliff Rudolph of Hicks Ventures in Houston are lining up capital and beginning to acquire distressed properties as they pursue a popular investment strategy of capitalizing on the downturn.

...
Rudolph says the firm plans to acquire troubled office buildings and hospitality properties, refurbish and renovate as needed and then sell the properties for a profit within three to five years.
In addition to purchasing properties, Hicks Ventures is also in the market to buy discounted debt. Rudolph says the firm will use so-called "loan to own" transactions to buy debt on troubled assets for a price of cents on the dollar, with the goal of taking ownership of the property when the borrower can no longer cover the payments.

Hicks Ventures will kick off the shopping spree here and eventually spread to Dallas, Austin and other markets.
"It makes more sense for us to start in Houston because it's our back yard," Rudolph says.
Under the partnership arrangement, Rudolph finds the deals and Hicks is the money man.

Rudolph says three unidentified private equity hedge funds lined up by Hicks have agreed to provide acquisition capital on a deal-by-deal basis.

Hicks Ventures will make up the difference using some money from high-net-worth individuals, Rudolph says, with a goal of achieving 20 percent returns on investments.
Rudolph says his first deal as a Hicks Ventures partner could happen within 90 days if the firm is selected as the winning bidder on an unnamed asset.
...
Rudolph says Hicks Ventures has a distinct advantage in coming off the sidelines with a clean slate. A lot of firms focused on the same business have to contend with distressed properties in their existing portfolios.
Says Rudolph: "We have no troubled assets we have to do deal with.
