Hersha Hospitality Announces The Closing Of Non-Core Property Sale

Hersha Hospitality Trust (NYSE: HT), owner of upscale and select service hotels in urban gateway markets, announced that the Company has closed on the previously announced sale of 14 of the 18 non-core assets. The Company expects to complete the sale of the remaining four assets by the end of the first quarter, pending completion of the CMBS loan assumption process.

The sale of the 14 assets generated net proceeds of approximately $40.5 million, reduced the Company’s consolidated mortgage debt by $42.5 million and reduced its proportionate share of unconsolidated mortgage debt by $13.8 million.

The sales are part of an ongoing portfolio transformation as the Company recycles its capital into higher growth urban gateway markets. The resulting portfolio is one with significantly improved operating metrics including higher Average Daily Rate, Hotel EBITDA margins and a lower average age.
