MONTERREY, Mexico--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Deutsche Bank Mexico, S.A., Banking institution, Trust Division F/1616 or Fibra Inn (BMV: FINN13, ADR OTC: DFBRY) (“Fibra Inn” or “the Company”), the Mexican real estate investment trust specializing in the hotel industry serving the business traveler with international brands, announced today that it has completed the payment and acquisition of the Best Western Valle Real Hotel located in Monterrey, in the state of Nuevo Leon; and which adds 85 rooms to the Company’s portfolio.
The transaction was paid in cash using the resources obtained from the bank loan, and represented a total investment of Ps. 67.0 million, plus Ps. 3.7 million in taxes, acquisition-related expenses and corresponding VAT expenses. A projected cap rate of 9.6% is estimated for 2016.
The hotel will be operated by the Hotel Manager, a Fibra Inn related party, and the corresponding synergies are being implemented.
The Best Western brand is the fourteenth global brand in Fibra Inn’s portfolio. The hotel is categorized under the limited-service segment. It has a strategic location, since the northern region of the country continues to strongly perform within the industrial sector. It is important to mention that this hotel was acquired at the right price given its potential stemming from a target corporate client base in the Western part of Monterrey, which also includes the U.S. Consulate and the Santa Catarina industrial area.
