BETHESDA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (NYSE: PEB) (the “Company”) today announced that it has successfully executed a new $125 million unsecured term loan. The term loan will mature in January 2021. The interest rate on the unsecured term loan is based on a pricing grid with a range of 145 to 220 basis points over LIBOR, determined by the Company’s leverage ratio. In conjunction with the new unsecured term loan, the Company anticipates fixing LIBOR in the near future for the period of the loan. The term loan also includes an accordion option that allows the Company to request additional lender commitments up to a total of $250 million. Funding of the new term loan will occur in July 2015.
“We appreciate the continued support of our bank group, which provided us with very attractive terms for this new loan,” commented Raymond D. Martz, Chief Financial Officer for Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. “The additional capital, which allows us to further stagger our future debt maturities, will be used to support future financing activities such as paying down our unsecured revolving credit facility, capital reinvestments in renovations and repositionings, and potential future acquisition opportunities as they may arise.”
The Company’s $125 million unsecured term loan is jointly led by PNC Capital Markets LLC and Regions Capital Markets, who serve as Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Book Runners. PNC Bank, National Association serves as the Administrative Agent, Regions Bank serves as the Syndication Agent, U.S. Bank National Association and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation serve as the Documentation Agents, and Bank of America, N.A. also participated in the unsecured term loan.
