Condor Hospitality Trust Announces Sale of Non-Core Legacy Hotel (3/30/17)
BETHESDA, Md., March 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Condor Hospitality Trust, Inc. (NASDAQ:CDOR), a hotel-focused real estate investment trust (REIT) headquartered and incorporated in the state of Maryland, today announced the closing on the sale of a legacy hotel asset, the 106-room Super 8 located at 5400 Southgate Drive, Billings, MT 59101 for $4.3 million. The net proceeds from the sale will be used to repay outstanding debt on the Company’s $90 million secured credit facility.
“With this closing, we have sold two legacy hotel assets in 2017 after disposing of 25 non-core hotels in 2016,” said Bill Blackham, Condor’s Chief Executive Officer. “We will continue our capital recycling initiative throughout 2017 and anticipate selling five additional legacy hotels in the first half of the year. We currently have signed contracts to sell two additional legacy hotels though there can be no guarantee that these transactions will close. Proceeds from these expected dispositions will be used to repay existing debt, thus increasing flexibility on our balance sheet to pursue the acquisition of additional high-quality, premium-branded select-service hotels,” Mr. Blackham continued.
