    Valvoline Instant Oil Change, the Brand

    Valvoline Oil Change is owed by Ashland Inc. (NYSE: ASH). Ashland serves more than 100 countries worldwide and is a leading marketer, distributor and producer of quality branded automotive and industrial products and services. Fiscal 2013 sales for Ashland Inc. exceeded $7.8 Billion. Valvoline Instant Oil Change has done over 100 Million Oil changes at over 900 locations throughout the US for over 25 years. Valvoline Instant Oil Change operates both franchised and corporate locations.

      The Franchisee

    • Great Lakes Quick Lube Ltd. is a franchisee of Valvoline Instant Oil change with 32 locations. Great Lakes Quick Lube Ltd. has been owning and operating Valvoline Instant Oil Change locations since 2004.

      Great Lakes Quick Lube Ltd. is headed by its Operating Partner Jim Wheat. Mr. Wheat has over 40 years experience in all levels of automotive retail and franchise management with a proven record of turning around troubled companies through brand development and implementing proven business practices. He started his career as part time “Stock Boy” in a Western Auto store and spent the next 18 years with the company holding numerous management positions. Wheat joined Pennzoil Company in 1990 as part of the management team recruited to head up the Jiffy Lube acquisition, initially supervising the Eastern franchise operations. Mr. Wheat worked with the management team and Franchisees to successfully resolve franchise conflicts.

      He was promoted to Sr. VP in 1992, developed a company store division as part of the franchise conflicts resolution and ultimately to Exec. VP, assuming responsibility for all company and franchise operations. He was promoted again. This time he was promoted to President of JLI and Group VP of Pennzoil in 1995. He lead the company to record sales, earnings, store count growth and solid franchisee relations.

      In 1998 Mr. Wheat was recruited by the Penske Corp as President of Penske Auto Centers (formally K-Mart Auto Centers), an acquisition troubled and unprofitable at the time. He retooled the business model and utilized his experience to improve sales and earnings annually until 2002 when the Kmart Corporation filed for bankruptcy, resulting in several hundred PAC locations being closed.

      From 2002-2004 he utilized his experience in retail automotive service business to take on troubled entities in order to determine the viability of the entities for their current management and ownership groups ( including Big-O Tires). This ultimately led him to connect with a private equity group in 2004 to build, manage and run Great Lakes Quick Lube Ltd.

                Investment Details

              • LLC along with the Members of 832 LLC, a WI LLC, plan to acquire a single-tenant freestanding building located at 832 E. Moreland Blvd. Waukesha, WI (the “Property”) that is 100% occupied by Great Lakes Quick Lube Ltd., a Franchisee of Valvoline Instant Oil Change.
                832 LLC intends to purchase, for all cash with no debt, and hold the Property for its Cash on Cash returns and asset appreciation. 832 LLC Members are being provided the opportunity to become investors in the Property. The Management Company, JDS Real Estate Inc. (Manager) will handle all aspects of the investment including vetting and acquiring the Property, completing the acquisition, day-to-day operations of the Property and ultimately selling the Property.
                This acquisition is intended to be a “Buy and Hold” strategy. The hold period is intended to be 7 to 10 years, however it could be shorter or longer depending on market conditions as well as the desire of the investors. 832 LLC Members have the opportunity to participate as investors in the Property and earn a portion of the cash flow and appreciation. Investors can expect to receive monthly distributions, with the first distribution projected on or before the 91st day following the closing of the Property.
                This Property represents a unique opportunity to invest in a stabilized, 100% occupied, freestanding, single-tenant, net-leased asset. The property has existing in-place cash flow and offers Members a stable monthly cash flow with the potential of asset appreciation through built-in contractual rental increases.

                Investment Highlights

              • Property: This is a 100% occupied, single-tenant, net-leased, free-standing building.
                International Tenant: The Property is 100% occupied by one of the world’s largest automotive oil change business with over 900 locations in the US.
                Built-In Rental Increases: The Lease is a triple-net lease with an annual Rent Increase.

              Risks and Risk Mitigation

              • Macro Retail Risk: The retail asset class can be volatile, especially with the growth of internet-based retailers such as Amazon. This risk is partially mitigated by the fact that this property is 100% occupied by a Single Tenant Free Standing tenant.
              • Tenant Accounts for 100% of Rental Revenues: The single tenant accounts for 100% of the revenues. The success of the property is thus tied to the ongoing lease with the Tenant. If Tenant defaulted on its lease or otherwise stopped paying rent, this would cause all distributions to cease until such time as a new tenant was found. Since the Property is being purchased all cash, there will be no debt to service.
              • Leasing Risk: There is a risk that the leasing team will be unable to lease the space if it becomes vacant from time to time. This Property is currently 100% occupied and has also been historically well occupied despite recent difficult economic conditions.

              This page list some frequently asked questions that pertain to this specific Property. Please feel free to submit your own questions by emailing them to:

              Why don’t you give an IRR or an estimated IRR?

              • In order to establish an IRR (Internal Rate of Return) the asset must be fully completed and sold. IRR takes into account the sale proceeds of an asset. We choose not to do an “estimated IRR” due to the fact that we do not believe we are psychics who possess the ability to predict the future. An “estimated IRR” would require us to pick an unknown point in time in the future as well as predict the sale price of the property. Since property “values” are influenced by many factors such as capital markets, supply and demand, occupancies, cap rates, etc., predicting a “time in the future” and a “future market value” is something we feel could be too misleading. While other investment companies choose to offer an “estimated IRR,” we choose not to try to predict the future. As Niels Bohr, the Danish physicist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922 would always say, “Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future.”
              • Why not put current low-interest debt on the Property?

                • Our investment properties cater to conservative accredited investors looking to a good rate of return with the lowest amount of risk. We feel that having no debt on the property achieves one of the most important components of “low risk.” Without debt there is no chance of a lender foreclosure. If the tenant was to vacate for any reason, having no debt on the property affords us the luxury of having no debt to service during any cash flow interruptions.
                • Why is the Seller Selling?

                  • This is a common question asked, or at least it’s on the minds of investors and buyers. The answer to this question is simply, it does not matter. What does matter is that a sufficient amount of due diligence has been done on the property. If sufficient due diligence has been done on the property and the financial benefits are acceptable to the buyer/investor, then “why the seller is selling” (absent any fraud) should not matter to the buyer/investor.

                    Owners of properties sell for any number of reasons. Why a Seller is selling is not the question, the question should be “Why is the buyer buying?” If you are satisfied with the due diligence and the financial benefits are acceptable, then the buyer should buy and the investor should invest.
