DiamondRock Hospitality Completes $200 Million Unsecured Credit Facility

BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DiamondRock Hospitality Company (the "Company") (NYSE: DRH) announced today that it successfully amended and restated its $200 million senior unsecured credit facility. The amended facility pricing grid has been significantly reduced and the facility now matures in January 2018, inclusive of a one-year extension option, which is subject to certain customary conditions. The amended facility also includes an accordion feature to expand up to $400 million, subject to lender consent. 

"We are extremely pleased to lower our borrowing costs, extend the maturity date and create additional financial flexibility. We appreciate the continued support from our lenders," stated Sean M. Mahoney, Chief Financial Officer of DiamondRock Hospitality Company.

The interest rate on the new facility is determined in accordance with a pricing grid ranging from 175 to 275 basis points over LIBOR, based on the Company's ratio of net indebtedness to EBITDA. This new pricing grid represents a 50 to 75 basis point reduction from the previous pricing grid, and, as a result of this amendment, the interest rate is currently 190 basis points over LIBOR.  The Company also lowered the unused facility fees and modified certain financial covenants. The Company currently has $105 million in outstanding borrowings under the facility.

The new facility was co-led by Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated who acted as Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Bookrunners.
