Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On July 31, 2018, affiliates of Sotherly Hotels Inc. (the “Company”), the sole general partner of Sotherly Hotels LP (the “Operating Partnership”), entered into a second amendment to loan and security agreement; an amended, restated and consolidated mortgage loan note; and other related documents with its existing lender, TD Bank, N.A., to amend the terms of its mortgage loan on the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia Airport hotel (the “Hotel”) located in Philadelphia, PA.  Concurrent with the loan modification, affiliates of the Company also entered into a 5-year swap agreement with The Toronto-Dominion Bank.

 Pursuant to the amended loan documents:

 

the principal balance of the loan was increased from approximately $30.0 million to $42.2 million;

 

the loan’s maturity date is extended until July 31, 2023;

 

the loan bears a floating interest rate equal to the 1-month LIBOR rate plus 2.27% (the “Loan Rate”);

 

the loan amortizes on a 30-year schedule with payments of principal and interest beginning immediately;

 

the loan can be prepaid without penalty; and

 

the loan will no longer be fully guaranteed by the Operating Partnership, but the Operating Partnership will guaranteed certain standard “bad boy” carveouts.

Pursuant to the swap agreement:

 

the Loan Rate is swapped for a fixed interest rate of 5.237%;

 

notional amounts approximate the declining balance of the loan; and

 

the Company is responsible for any potential termination fees associated with early termination of the swap agreement.

The Company used a portion of the proceeds to repay in full the existing Note B to the mortgage loan on the Company’s Hyatt Centric Arlington hotel and to pay closing costs associated with the amendment, and will use the balance of the proceeds for general corporate purposes.

 

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On August 3, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing the transactions effected pursuant to the debt financing of the Hotel.  A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this report and is incorporated by reference herein.

In accordance with General Instruction B.2 and B.6 of Form 8-K, the information included in this Item 7.01 (including Exhibit 99.1 hereto), shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
