BETHESDA, Md., Dec. 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Condor Hospitality Trust, Inc. (NASDAQ:CDOR), a hotel-focused real estate investment trust (REIT) headquartered and incorporated in the state of Maryland, today announced the closing on the sale of a legacy hotel asset, the 62-room Super 8 located at 3001 Kirkwood Street, Burlington, IA 52601 for $2.8 million. The net proceeds from the sale will be used for general corporate purposes and for future acquisitions of hotels that meet the investment strategy of the Company.
“On January 8, 2016, we communicated our intent to sell at least 20 of the remaining legacy hotels in 2016. We achieved 20 year-to-date legacy hotel asset sales in November and then announced an increased target to sell at least 24 assets. With this sale, we have achieved this increased target of 24 legacy hotel sales for 2016. We have generated $58.5 million in gross proceeds from these asset sales and have used the net proceeds for corporate purposes, including the successful acquisition of two high-quality premium-branded hotels for approximately $66 million, the Aloft Atlanta Downtown and the Aloft Leawood,” said Bill Blackham, Condor’s Chief Executive Officer. “We currently have a signed contract to sell one additional legacy hotel this year though there can be no guarantee that this transaction will close. We expect to end 2016 with no more than 13 of the 59 legacy hotels that the Company owned at the beginning of 2015 prior to accelerating our capital recycling initiative,” Mr. Blackham continued.
