Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

Acquisition of the Hyatt Centric Arlington

 

On December 13, 2017, Sotherly Hotels LP, a Delaware limited partnership (the “Operating Partnership”) and a subsidiary of Sotherly Hotels Inc., which is the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership (“Sotherly” or the “Company” and together with the Operating Partnership, “we”, “us” and “our”), entered into a hotel purchase and sale agreement (the “Agreement”) to purchase the 318-room Hyatt Centric Arlington hotel located in Arlington, Virginia (the “Hotel”) from a third party seller, RP/HH Rosslyn Hotel Owner, LP (the “Seller”), for an aggregate purchase price of $81.0 million (the “Arlington Acquisition”).  On January 11, 2018, we entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the hotel purchase and sale agreement to provide an additional credit at closing in the amount of $1.3 million, following which the aggregate purchase price was $79.7 million.  Pursuant to the Agreement, as amended, we agreed to purchase the Seller’s right, title, and interest in: (i) the Hotel; (ii) a ground lease for the real property associated with the Hotel; and (iii) certain other tangible and intangible property relating to the Hotel.

 

On March 1, 2018, the Arlington Acquisition closed.  Concurrently with the closing, we entered into a franchise agreement with an affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corporation for the Hotel to continue operating as the Hyatt Centric Arlington, and a management agreement with Highgate Hotels, L.P. for the management of the Hotel.  The management agreement: (i) has an initial term of three years commencing March 1, 2018; (ii) provides for a base management fee equal to 2.50% of gross revenues; and (iii) provides for an incentive management fee equal to 10% of the amount by which gross operating profit, as defined in the management agreement, for a given year exceeds the budgeted gross operating profit for such year; provided, however, that the incentive management fee payable in respect of any year shall not exceed 0.5% of the gross revenues of the Hotel.

 

Copies of each of the Agreement and Amendment are attached to this current report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.31 and Exhibit 10.32, respectively, and are incorporated by reference as though they were fully set forth herein.  The foregoing summary description of the Agreement and Amendment, and the transactions contemplated thereby is not intended to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the complete text of the Agreement and Amendment.

On March 1, 2018, we entered into a loan agreement, a first and second promissory note (“Note A” and “Note B”, respectively), and other loan documents, including a guarantee by the Operating Partnership, to secure an aggregate $57.0 million mortgage (the “Mortgage Loan”) on the Hotel with Fifth Third Bank.

is in the amount of $50.0 million;

 

has a term of 3 years, with two 1-year extension options, each of which is subject to certain criteria;

amortizes on a 25-year schedule.

 

Pursuant to the Mortgage Loan documents, Note B:

 

is in the amount of $7.0 million;

 

has a term of 1 year, with two 1-year extension options, each of which is subject to certain criteria;

 

bears a floating interest rate of three-month LIBOR plus 5.00%; and

 

requires monthly principal payments of $100,000 during the initial 1 year term, $150,000 during the first 1 year extended term, and $250,000 during the second 1 year extended term, with interest payments due monthly on the outstanding principal amount during all three terms.

 

The full amount of the loan proceeds were used to partially finance the Arlington Acquisition.

(c)Escrows and Deposits.  All escrows or similar deposits, if any, made by Seller as security under any public service contracts or other Contracts which will remain on deposit for the benefit of Purchaser after the Closing to the extent such escrows or similar deposits are assigned to Purchaser for which Seller will receive a credit at Closing.

ARTICLE 4

TITLE AND PROPERTY RELATED MATTERS

4.1Delivery of Seller Materials.  To the extent not previously delivered or made available, within five (5) Business Days following the Effective Date, Seller shall deliver to Purchaser copies of the items on Schedule 4.1 hereto (to the extent in Seller’s possession or control).

4.2Title and Survey Review.  

(a)Purchaser shall review title to the Property as disclosed by a title commitment for the Property issued by the Title Company, to be obtained by Purchaser (the “Title Commitment”) and Seller’s existing survey (the “Survey”).  No later than five (5) Business Days prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, Purchaser may, at its option, notify Seller in writing of any title matters to which Purchaser objects in Purchaser’s sole discretion (“Purchaser’s Objections”).  Seller shall have the right, but not the obligation (except as to Mandatory Cure Items, as defined below), to attempt to remove, satisfy or otherwise cure any one or more of Purchaser’s Objections prior to Closing.  If Seller gives notice to Purchaser that Seller will cure any one or more of such Purchaser’s Objections prior to Closing, then Seller shall exercise reasonable efforts to cure such Objection(s) to Purchaser’s reasonable satisfaction on or before the Closing Date, and such cure shall be a condition precedent to

12

 


 

Purchaser’s obligations under this Agreement.  Seller shall give Purchaser notice of its intent to cure (or not to cure) Purchaser’s Objections (the “Seller’s Title Cure Notice”) on or before the date that is three (3) Business Days after the receipt of Purchaser’s Objections (the “Seller’s Cure Notice Date”); it being understood and agreed that the failure of Seller to give such notice shall be deemed an election by Seller not to cure Purchaser’s Objections (other than Mandatory Cure Items).  If Seller fails to timely give Purchaser the Seller’s Title Cure Notice on or before the Seller’s Cure Notice Date, or if Seller notifies Purchaser in writing on or before the Seller’s Title Cure Notice Date that Seller will not satisfy or remedy any one or more of Purchaser’s Objections (other than the Mandatory Cure Items) prior to Closing, then, in either event, Purchaser shall have the option, exercisable by no later than the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, to either (a) waive the unsatisfied Purchaser’s Objections (other than Mandatory Cure Items), in which event those unsatisfied Purchaser’s Objections shall become Permitted Exceptions (other than Mandatory Cure Items), or (b) terminate this Agreement by the giving of written notice thereof to Seller, in which event, the Deposit shall be refunded to Purchaser and neither party shall have any further rights or obligations hereunder, except for obligations which explicitly survive the termination.  If Purchaser does not timely elect to terminate this Agreement as provided above, then Purchaser shall be deemed to have waived any unsatisfied Purchaser’s Objection (other than any Mandatory Cure Items) and any such unsatisfied Purchaser’s Objection shall become a Permitted Exception (other than any Mandatory Cure Items).  As used herein, “Mandatory Cure Items” shall mean exceptions to title arising from (1) any deed of trust, mortgage or other security interest in the Property granted by Seller or (2) any other monetary lien or encumbrance on the Property not to exceed $200,000 and voluntarily placed or permitted by Seller other than real estate taxes not yet due and payable.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Seller shall be responsible for paying off or otherwise removing the Mandatory Cure Items at or prior to Closing.  As used herein, “Permitted Exceptions” shall mean (1) real estate taxes not yet due and payable (or for which Purchaser is otherwise responsible in accordance with the terms of this Agreement); (2) rights of tenants, licensees or other third parties under any Assumed Leases or Assumed Contracts (each, as defined herein); (3) the Ground Lease; (4) any rights of Existing Franchisor under the New Franchise Agreement; and (5) items to which Purchaser has not objected, or which have been waived or deemed waived by Purchaser, in accordance with the above.

(b)If, prior to Closing, Seller or the Title Company notifies Purchaser or Purchaser discovers that title to the Property is subject to defects, limitations or encumbrances other than Permitted Exceptions other than contained in Purchaser’s Objections, then Purchaser shall give Seller written notice of any objection thereto within three (3) Business Days after Purchaser received Seller’s or the Title Company’s notice thereof or Purchaser otherwise discovers the same.  In such event, Seller may elect to postpone the Closing for up to ten (10) days and attempt to cure such objection by notice given to Purchaser within two (2) Business Days following Seller’s receipt of any such objection notice from Purchaser.  Any failure by Seller to provide such notice to Purchaser within such two (2) Business Day period shall be deemed an election by Seller not to cure any such title objection.  If Purchaser fails to waive any such title objection within three (3) Business Days after Purchaser receives notice from Seller that Seller will not cure such title objection (or the date on which Seller is deemed to have elected not to cure such title objection), this Agreement shall terminate automatically and the Title Company shall promptly return the Deposit to Purchaser, and neither party shall have

13

 


 

any liability to the other except for Purchaser’s obligations which expressly survive any termination.  

4.3Condemnation.  In the event that any Governmental Authority commences condemnation proceedings, taking by power of eminent domain or any similar action from and after the date hereof (such action, a “Condemnation”) with respect to the entire Property or any Material Portion (as defined herein) thereof, Purchaser may, at its option, by written notice to Seller given by the earlier of (i) the Closing Date, and (ii) five (5) Business Days after Seller notifies Purchaser of such Condemnation, either: (x) terminate this Agreement, in which case the Deposit shall be returned to Purchaser and the Parties hereto shall have no further rights or obligations, other than those that by their terms survive the termination of this Agreement, or (y) proceed under this Agreement, in which event Seller shall, at the Closing, assign to Purchaser its entire right, title and interest in and to any condemnation award, or credit the Purchase Price in the amount of any award actually received by Seller between the Effective Date and the Closing Date less any collection costs, and Purchaser shall have the sole right after the Closing to negotiate and otherwise deal with the condemning authority in respect of such matter.  If Purchaser does not give Seller written notice of its election within the time required above, then Purchaser shall be deemed to have elected option (x) above, For the purpose of this Agreement, “Material Portion” means a taking of the Property which, as a result of the taking, will interfere with Purchaser’s ability to access or use the Property for Purchaser’s intended use, or will result in a decrease in value of the Property equal to or exceeding twenty percent (20%) of the Purchase Price.

4.4Casualty.  

(a)Casualty Notice.  If prior to Closing, the Property is damaged by fire or other casualty, Seller shall estimate the cost to repair and the time required to complete repairs and will provide Purchaser written notice of Seller’s estimation (the “Casualty Notice”) as soon as reasonably possible after the occurrence of the casualty.

(b)Material.  In the event of any Material Damage, as defined herein, to or destruction of the Property or any portion thereof prior to Closing, either Seller or Purchaser may, at its option, terminate this Agreement by delivering written notice to the other on or before the expiration of five (5) Business Days after the date Seller delivers the Casualty Notice to Purchaser (and if necessary, the Closing Date shall be extended to give the Parties the full five (5) Business Day period to make such election and to obtain insurance settlement agreements with Seller’s insurers).  Upon any such termination, the Deposit shall be returned to Purchaser and the Parties shall have no further rights or obligations hereunder, other than those that by their terms survive the termination of this Agreement. If neither Seller nor Purchaser so terminates this Agreement within said five (5) Business Days, then the Parties shall proceed under this Agreement and close on schedule (subject to extension of Closing as provided above), and as of Closing, Seller shall assign to Purchaser, without representation or warranty by or recourse against Seller, all of Seller’s rights in and to any resulting insurance proceeds due Seller as a result of such damage or destruction, including without limitation, any business interruption or lost revenues insurance proceeds (the “Insurance Proceeds”) and Purchaser shall assume full responsibility for all needed repairs, and Purchaser shall receive a credit at Closing for any deductible amount under such insurance policies.  For the purposes of

14

 


 

this Agreement, “Material Damage” and “Materially Damaged” means damage which will interfere with Purchaser’s ability to access or use the Property for Purchaser’s intended use, or which equals or exceeds twenty percent (20%) of the Purchase Price.

(c)Immaterial.  If the Property is not Materially Damaged, then neither Purchaser nor Seller shall have the right to terminate this Agreement, and Seller shall, at its option, either (i) repair the damage before the Closing, or (ii) assign any insurance claims to Purchaser for the  cost to complete the repair (in which case Purchaser shall retain all Insurance Proceeds, Purchaser shall receive a credit at Closing for any deductible amount under such insurance policies, there shall be no other reduction in the Purchase Price and Purchaser shall assume full responsibility for all needed repairs).

29

 


 

matter constitutes a breach of a representation or warranty of Seller under Section 8.2, as limited by the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including Section 8.3 below.

Subject in all events to the last sentence of this paragraph, Purchaser hereby releases Seller, and each Seller Party (defined below), from any and all present or future claims, demands, causes of actions, losses, damages, including, without limitation, exemplary, punitive, indirect or consequential, special or other damages, liabilities, costs and expenses (including attorney’s fees whether suit is initiated or not) whether known or unknown, liquidated or contingent (hereinafter collectively called the “Claims”) arising from or relating to the Property, including, without limitation, any of the matters set forth in this paragraph, as well as (i) any defects, errors or omissions in the design, construction, repair, or maintenance of the Property, or (ii) any environmental and other physical conditions affecting the Property whether the same are a result of negligence or otherwise.  The release set forth in this paragraph specifically includes, without limitation, any Claims arising in connection with the presence or alleged presence of asbestos or harmful or toxic substances in, on, under or about the Property including, without limitation, any claims under or on account of (i) the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980, as the same may have been amended or may be amended from time to time and similar state statutes and any regulations promulgated thereunder; (ii) any other federal, state or local law, ordinance, rule or regulation, now or hereafter in effect, that deals with or otherwise in any manner relates to, environmental matters of any kind; or (iii) this Agreement or the common law.  The release set forth in this paragraph specifically includes, without limitation, any claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 or similar state or local laws, as any of those laws may be amended from time to time and any regulations, orders, rules of procedure or guidelines promulgated in connection with such laws, regardless of whether they were in existence on the date of this Agreement.  This release includes Claims of which Purchaser is presently unaware or which Purchaser does not presently suspect to exist in its favor which, if known by Purchaser, would materially affect Purchaser’s release of the Seller.  Purchaser acknowledges that Purchaser has been represented by independent legal counsel of Purchaser’s selection and Purchaser is granting this release of its own volition and after consultation with Purchaser’s counsel.  The waiver and release of claims by Purchaser in this Section does not obligate Purchaser to indemnify Seller or any Seller Party against any such claims brought by third parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the release set forth in this paragraph does not apply to Seller’s indemnification obligations and claims after the Closing in accordance with this Agreement and for any alleged breach of representations and warranties pursuant to Section 8.3 herein.

8.3Additional Provisions Regarding Representations and Warranties.

(a)Limitation on Liability and Survivability.  Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary herein or in any document or instrument (including any assignment) delivered in connection with the transaction contemplated hereby (collectively, “Closing Documents”), the representations and warranties contained herein or in any Closing Document shall survive the Closing for a period of nine (9) months (the “Survival Period”). No claim for a breach of

30

 


 

any representation or warranty shall be actionable or payable if the breach in question results from or is based on a condition, state of facts or other matter which was known to the other party prior to Closing.

(b)Representation or Warranty Untrue.  Prior to Closing, if any representation or warranty of any party is discovered to have been false, in any material respect, when made, then such discovery shall be a Seller default or a Purchaser default (as applicable), subject to any cure rights if applicable under Article 9.  If, after the end of the Due Diligence Period and before the Closing, (a) such false representation or warranty shall constitute a condition that such defaulting party is capable of curing and (b) such defaulting party notifies the non-defaulting party in writing that it intends to cure such false representation or warranty, then such defaulting party shall have the right to cure such false representation or warranty prior to Closing and, if such condition is not cured by Closing (or if such defaulting party notifies the non-defaulting party that such condition cannot be cured), then the non-defaulting party shall have all of the rights set forth in Article 9, except no additional cure right for the defaulting party shall apply.  However, if the non-defaulting party consummates the Closing with actual knowledge of a false representation or warranty by the defaulting party, such non-defaulting party shall be conclusively deemed to have waived such default and accepted such uncured condition, in which event the non-defaulting party shall have no rights or remedies after the Closing under this Agreement regarding such default and such representation and warranty shall automatically be deemed amended to fully and accurately state the actual facts and conditions then known or existing so that no fact or condition first discovered or notice received or events occurring after the Effective Date can or will constitute a breach by the defaulting party of any of the warranties or representations.  Anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement notwithstanding, Purchaser acknowledges that for representations and warranties of Seller first discovered by Purchaser during the Due Diligence Period to have been false when made, after expiry of Seller’s cure right described above, Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy is to terminate this Agreement in accordance with its right of termination during the Due Diligence Period, following which Seller shall then be required to compensate Purchaser for One Hundred Percent (100%) of its actual and reasonable costs incurred to date (subject to the limitations described in Section 9.2 herein), in addition to the return of the Deposit.  

(c)The aggregate liability of the Seller with respect to all claims arising after the Closing in connection with any indemnification obligations of Seller hereof or a breach by Seller of any representations and warranties of Seller which survive the Closing shall not exceed THREE MILLION TWO HUNDRED FORTY THOUSAND DOLLARS ($3,240,000.00) (the “Cap”), and in no event shall Seller be responsible with respect to claims by Purchaser after the Closing with respect to any indemnification obligations hereof or a breach of any representations and warranties of Seller unless the Losses by reason of all such claims, collectively, exceed FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS ($50,000) (the “Basket”), at which point Seller shall be liable from the first dollar of such Losses.  In no event shall either party be liable to the other party for any consequential, exemplary, punitive, or any other type of damages (other than direct damages).  Purchaser shall provide written notice (a “Claim Notice”) to Seller prior to the expiration of the Survival Period of any alleged indemnification obligations of Seller pursuant to Section 10.5 hereof or breach by Seller of any warranties or representations; it being agreed that in all cases any action that may be brought for any alleged

31

 


 

indemnification obligations of Seller pursuant to Section 10.5 hereof or breach by Seller of any warranties or representations will be forever barred unless, no later than the expiration of the Survival Period, Purchaser shall deliver a Claim Notice to Seller regarding the same, in which event Seller’s liability for any such claim shall survive the Survival Period.  Seller’s total liability with respect to a default by Seller for refusal or failure to convey the Property shall not be governed by this Section but shall instead be governed by the terms and provisions of Section 10.2 of this Agreement.  “Losses” shall be defined as losses, damages, liabilities, deficiencies, claims, interest, awards, judgments, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees,) but excluding incidental, consequential and punitive damages (except in the case of fraud).

9.1Purchaser’s Default; Liquidated Damages - Deposit.  If Purchaser fails to perform its obligations pursuant to this Agreement at or prior to Closing (for any reason except failure by Seller to perform hereunder), or if prior to Closing any one or more of Purchaser’s representations or warranties are breached in any material respect, which, in either case, is not cured by Purchaser within the earlier of five (5) Business Days after notice thereof or Closing, whichever is sooner, Seller shall be entitled, as its sole and exclusive remedy (except with respect to any covenant of indemnity by Purchaser set forth in this Agreement), to terminate this Agreement (except the provisions hereof and thereof which expressly survive termination) and recover or retain the Deposit as liquidated damages and not as penalty, in full satisfaction of claims against Purchaser hereunder (except as otherwise expressly provided). Seller and Purchaser agree that Seller’s damages resulting from Purchaser’s default would be impractical and extremely difficult, if not impossible, to estimate and determine, and that the Deposit is a fair and reasonable estimate of those damages which has been agreed to in an effort to cause the amount of such damages to be certain, and that the payment of the Deposit to Seller as liquidated damages under the circumstances provided for herein is not intended as a forfeiture or penalty, but is intended to constitute liquidated damages to Seller.

9.2Seller’s Default.  Prior to Closing (or if at Closing, provided Purchaser is ready, willing and able to close the transactions contemplated hereunder and Seller intentionally fails to close), if Seller shall breach or default under this Agreement in any material respect (which shall  not include a failure of a condition pursuant to Section 7.1 except for Controllable Seller Conditions hereunder and such breach remains uncured for more than ten (10) Business Days following written notice from Purchaser of such default (provided that no such notice and cure shall be applicable to the failure to timely deliver the matters required for Closing hereunder) (for any reason except failure by Purchaser to perform hereunder), or prior to Closing any one or more of Seller’s representations or warranties are breached in any material respect and such breach remains uncured for more than ten (10) Business Days following written notice from Purchaser of such default, then Purchaser, as its sole and exclusive remedy, shall have the right to either: (i) terminate this Agreement by giving Seller written notice thereof, whereupon the Deposit shall be returned to Purchaser and Seller shall reimburse Purchaser’s One Hundred

32

 


 

Percent (100%) of its actual expenses in connection with this Agreement, including without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and third party reports on the Property but in no event in excess of $150,000, or (ii) solely as a remedy for failure to close on the part of Seller on the Closing Date, specifically enforce to convey the Property to Purchaser in accordance with this Agreement provided such action seeking specific performance is initiated within one hundred twenty (120) days of the scheduled Closing Date.  Purchaser hereby expressly waives all other remedies available at law or at equity with regard to a Seller default occurring prior to the Closing and matters which do not, by the express terms of this Agreement, survive termination of this Agreement and further provided that no action in specific performance shall seek to require Seller to do anything other than to convey the Property to Purchaser in accordance with this Agreement.  As a condition precedent to Purchaser exercising any right it may have to bring an action for specific performance for Seller to convey the Property hereunder, Purchaser must commence such an action within one hundred twenty (120) days after the occurrence of Seller’s failure to close in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.  Purchaser agrees that its failure to timely commence such an action for specific performance within such one hundred twenty (120) day period shall be deemed a waiver by it of its right to commence an action for specific performance as well as a waiver by it of any right it may have to file or record a notice of lis pendens or notice of pendency of action or similar notice against any portions of the Property.  In no event shall Seller’s direct or indirect partners, shareholders, owners or affiliates, any officer, director, employee or agent of the foregoing, or any affiliate or controlling person thereof, or Existing Franchisor or Hotel Manager, have any liability for any claim, cause of action or other liability arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the property, whether based on contract, common law, statute, equity or otherwise.  

9.3The provisions of this Section 9  shall survive any termination of this Agreement.

Peer Review Scope

 

 

Review of architectural and structural drawings for the building, as well as the repair and maintenance files, past reports and testing results, and current specs/drawings for the ongoing garage repairs.

 

Review available warranty documents pertaining to the existing roofs.

 

Perform a visual survey of the garage to identify structural defects and other evidence of deterioration, and observe the overall condition of the slabs, foundation walls, storage areas, stairwells, etc. 

 

Structural defects, leakage (or evidence thereof), and generally deteriorated elements observed during the survey will be documented and photographed.

 

The exposed structural columns and foundation walls within the garage that support the hotel building will be visually inspected for signs of structural deterioration or distress that may compromise the building’s structural integrity.

 

The survey must be performed when vehicle occupancy is minimal. 

 

In addition to the visual survey, perform a 20% chain drag and soffit sounding survey to determine an order of magnitude quantity for concrete delamination and spalling.

 

Observe garage foundation walls, bottom level slab and elevator pits to check for signs of active water infiltration. 

 

The garage will be observed after a heavy rainfall.

 

Perform concrete chloride ion content extraction and testing at the elevated garage slab levels. Dust samples will be extracted from the elected garage slabs with a small diameter drill bit for a depth of 1”-2” for testing. The drill holes will be sealed with sealant after completion of the sample extraction. It is expected that approximately 8 samples will be taken.

Exhibit 99.1

MONDAY MARCH 5, 2018

 

SOTHERLY HOTELS INC. ANNOUNCES ACQUISITION OF

HYATT CENTRIC ARLINGTON

 

Williamsburg, Virginia – March 5, 2018 – Sotherly Hotels Inc. (NASDAQ: SOHO) (the “Company”) today announced that a subsidiary of its Operating Partnership, Sotherly Hotels LP, has acquired the 318-room Hyatt Centric Arlington located in Arlington, Virginia (the “Hotel”) for an aggregate purchase price of $79.7 million.

 

“We are pleased to announce the acquisition of the Hyatt Centric Arlington,” said Drew Sims, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “The Hotel is ideally located in the Rosslyn submarket of Arlington, Virginia, a short walk across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. and the luxury Georgetown shopping district. A prominent piece of the Rosslyn business community for over 40 years, the Hotel is located just steps from the Rosslyn Metro station and in the heart of the high-density office market. This acquisition gives the Company solid footing in the dynamic and consistent Washington, D.C. lodging market and we believe it will benefit our shareholders over the long-term.”

 

The Hyatt Centric Arlington is an upper-upscale, full-service hotel consisting of a prominent fifteen-story interior corridor building with 318 guestrooms, including 5 suites, located on a ground lease on +/-0.82 acres with direct frontage along Wilson Blvd. Additionally, the Hotel has a 5-story subterranean parking garage with 300 spaces located adjacent to the Rosslyn Metro Station. The Hotel recently underwent a $6.2 million renovation in 2016 as part of its conversion to Hyatt Centric, Hyatt’s full-service lifestyle brand that focuses on being the experiential hub and putting its guest at the center of the action in the best destinations. In addition to its proximity to the Rosslyn Metro Station, the Hotel is situated at the confluence of five major road networks and is less than five miles from Ronald Reagan National Airport. It is also centrally located at the epicenter of significant development and growth in the Rosslyn corridor, which additionally supports major corporations including Nestle, Carlyle Group, Raytheon, CEB, Deloitte, and BAE Systems.

 

For year-end December 31, 2017 and as reported by the seller, the Hotel operated at 84.0 percent occupancy, with an average daily rate (“ADR”) of $176.31, room revenue per available room (“RevPAR”) of $148.13, hotel earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (“Hotel EBITDA”) of approximately $5.9 million, and net operating income after capital reserves (“Adjusted NOI”) of approximately $5.04 million. The acquisition price represents a cap rate of approximately 6.3% and an EBITDA multiple of approximately 13.5x on reported 2017 performance.

 

As a part of the transaction, the Company closed on a new $57.0 million first and second mortgage with Fifth Third Bank to partially fund the acquisition and executed a new franchise agreement with Hyatt Hotels Corporation.

 

The Hotel will continue to be managed by Highgate Hotels, L.P. under a new management agreement with terms similar to the Company’s other management agreements with Chesapeake Hospitality.
