"We are thrilled with the successful closing of our new credit facility and appreciative of the continued support of our bank group," said Jonathan P. Stanner, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.  "With the closing of the new credit facility and the expected repayment of $107 million of secured debt prior to year-end, both our balance sheet and maturity ladder will be enhanced with a weighted-average maturity of more than five years and no meaningful debt maturities until late 2022."

The $400 million revolving line of credit matures in March 2023 and can be extended to March 2024 at the Company's option, subject to certain conditions.  The $200 million term loan matures in April 2024.  The new credit facility includes an accordion feature that will allow the Company to request additional lender commitments up to a total of $900 million.  The interest rate on the credit facility is based on a pricing grid ranging from 135 basis points to 210 basis points plus LIBOR for the $200 million term loan and 140 basis points to 215 basis points plus LIBOR for the $400 million revolving line of credit, depending upon the Company's leverage ratio.

The new $200 million term loan was fully drawn at closing and proceeds were used to retire the former $450 million credit facility.  At closing, there was $15 million outstanding on the new $400 million revolving line of credit and the Company currently has 49 hotels, equal to 71% of the total portfolio hotel EBITDA, which are deemed to be unencumbered assets supporting the new credit facility.

The credit facility was arranged by Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, Regions Capital Markets, and U.S. Bank National Association as Joint Lead Arrangers.  Deutsche Bank AG New York Branch will serve as the Administrative Agent while Bank of America, N.A., Regions Bank, and U.S. Bank National Association will serve as Syndication Agents.  KeyBank National Association, PNC Bank, and Royal Bank of Canada will serve as Documentation Agents with Raymond James Bank, N.A., Branch Banking and Trust Company, Capital One, National Association, and BMO Harris Bank, N.A. as participating Lenders.
