MHI Hospitality Corporation Completes $14.3 Million Secured Debt Financing
MHI Hospitality Corporation (NASDAQ: MDH) (the “Company”) today announced that it has successfully executed a new $14.3 million secured loan with Fifth Third Bank, collateralized by a first mortgage on the Crowne Plaza Jacksonville Riverfront Hotel in Jacksonville, Florida. The loan carries a floating interest rate of the 30-day LIBOR rate plus 3.0% and amortizes on a 25-year schedule. The maturity date is July 10, 2015 with an extension option until July 10, 2016. The loan also contains an earn-out feature which allows for an additional $3.0 million in proceeds to be funded during the term of the loan, contingent upon satisfaction of certain debt coverage and loan-to-value covenants. Proceeds from the loan were used to pay off the Hotel’s existing $14.0 million mortgage, which carried a fixed interest rate of 8.0%, and to pay closing costs related to the transaction.
Andrew M. Sims, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, “We are very pleased with the terms of this transaction as it results in an annual interest savings of approximately $650,000 on a normalized basis. Further, with the completion of this transaction, we have successfully completed a strategic initiative to restructure our balance sheet by closing six new mortgage loans over the past 11 months for combined proceeds of $86.0 million and a current weighted average interest of 4.50%, while also eliminating our syndicated credit facility and redeeming nearly half of our outstanding preferred stock.”
