Strategic Hotels & Resorts, Inc. Enters into New Credit Facilities

Strategic Hotels & Resorts, Inc. announced that it has closed a new $750.0 million unsecured credit facility with an accordion feature allowing for additional borrowing capacity up to $1.0 billion. The new facility is comprised of a $450.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility and a $300.0 million unsecured term loan. The new facility replaces a $300.0 million stock secured revolving credit facility. The new revolving credit facility's interest rate is based upon a leverage-based pricing grid ranging from LIBOR plus 165 basis points to LIBOR plus 240 basis points. Initial pricing will be LIBOR plus 165 basis points, which is a reduction from the previous facility's pricing of LIBOR plus 200 basis points. The new term loan's interest rate is also based upon a leveraged based pricing grid ranging from LIBOR plus 160 basis points to LIBOR plus 235 basis points. Initial pricing will be LIBOR plus 160 basis points. At closing, the company has $80.0 million outstanding on the revolving credit facility in addition to the $300.0 million funded unsecured term loan. The combined unsecured facility has a five-year term and will mature in May 2020. The unsecured facility is supported by a pool of unencumbered assets that will initially consist of nine of the company's hotels: the Fairmont Chicago, Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, Four Seasons Austin, Four Seasons Jackson Hole, Four Seasons Scottsdale Resort at Troon North, Four Seasons Silicon Valley, Marriott Lincolnshire, Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel and Westin St. Francis. In addition, the company closed a $115.0 million term loan secured by the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay hotel. Under terms of the agreement, the loan bears interest at a floating rate of LIBOR plus 240 basis points and has a five-year initial term with two, one-year extension options available to the company upon satisfying certain financial and other conditions. Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. originated the financing. Simultaneously, the company repaid the previously outstanding $209.6 million loan encumbered by the Westin St. Francis and the $93.1 million loan encumbered by the Fairmont Chicago that were cross-collateralized, priced at a fixed interest rate of 6.09% and set to mature in June 2017. The repayment will eliminate approximately $18.9 million of annual interest expense. In connection with the repayment, the company paid a prepayment penalty totaling approximately $32.9 million.
