BETHESDA, Md., March 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Condor Hospitality Trust, Inc. (NASDAQ:CDOR), a hotel-focused real estate investment trust (REIT) headquartered and incorporated in the state of Maryland, today announced the closing on the sale of a legacy hotel asset, the 79-room Comfort Inn located at 1740 New Butler Road, New Castle, PA 16101 for $2.5 million. The net proceeds from the sale will be used to repay outstanding debt on the Company's new $90 million secured credit facility. "With this closing, we have sold our first legacy hotel asset of 2017 after disposing of 25 non-core hotels in 2016," said Bill Blackham, Condor's Chief Executive Officer. "We will continue our capital recycling initiative throughout 2017 and anticipate selling six additional legacy hotels in the first half of the year. We currently have signed contracts to sell three additional legacy hotels though there can be no guarantee that these transactions will close. Proceeds from these expected dispositions will likely be used to repay existing debt, thus increasing flexibility on our balance sheet to pursue the acquisition of additional high-quality, premium-branded select-service hotels," Mr. Blackham continued.
