NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: DPW) a diversified holding company (“DPW,” or the “Company”) announced today that the Plan of Reorganization submitted by CBCS Washington Street LP (“CBCS”) with its Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of the Southern District of New York was confirmed by the court earlier this week. The Plan of Reorganization includes a $135 million construction loan commitment (the “Construction Loan”) from Hana Financial Investment of Hana Financial Group, one of the largest bank holding companies in South Korea with over $350 billion in assets under management.
The Construction Loan for the construction of the 94,000 square-foot luxury hotel in Tribeca (the “Hotel”) was arranged by Terence Park of VI Development Group and carries an interest rate of LIBOR plus 8 percent over a term of three years. Westchester-based Caspi Development entities will lead the hotel construction project and make all management decisions including decisions relating to the Construction Loan.
As announced on May 25, 2018, the Company holds a minority position in CBCS. Over the course of the bankruptcy proceedings, CBCS’s equity ownership was restructured such that, as of September 6, 2019, London-based Mactaggart Family & Partners, LP, is no longer an investor and 50% of CBCS is owned, directly and indirectly, by James R. Parks, an investor in Los Angeles. Mr. Parks has agreed to contribute $19 million as additional capital for the hotel construction project.
The Hotel is currently slated to open in April 2022 under the operation of the premier hospitality group, Groupe Lucien Barrière, of Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet’s Paris.
“We are excited to move forward with this landmark US flagship property in the premier Tribeca area and thrilled to be a long-term partner in the hotel,” said Milton “Todd” Ault, III, the Company’s CEO and Chairman. On June 8, 2018, the Company became a limited partner by entering into a limited partnership agreement in a partnership responsible for the construction and related activities of the Hotel. DPW, as a limited partner, has agreed to finance a portion of the capital required by the partnership.
The Company recommends that stockholders, investors and any other interested parties read the Company’s public filings and press releases available on its website at www.DPWHoldings.com under the Investor Relations section or available at www.sec.gov.
