BETHESDA, Md., Dec. 12, 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 asset, the 50-room Quality Inn located at 136 Ambrose Lane, Princeton, WV 24739 for $2.2 million. The net proceeds from the sale will be used for general corporate purposes and for future acquisitions of hotels that meet the current investment strategy of the company implemented in the third quarter of 2015.
“Year-to-date, Condor has sold 23 legacy hotels, generating $55.6 million in gross proceeds,” said Bill Blackham, Condor’s Chief Executive Officer. “We anticipate selling at least 24 legacy hotels in 2016 with net sales proceeds expected to be reinvested into high quality, select-service lodging assets such as the downtown Atlanta Aloft acquired in August and the Aloft Leawood in Kansas City, KS which is expected to close before year-end. Moreover, 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. We currently have signed contracts to sell 3 additional legacy hotels though there can be no guarantee that these transactions will close,” Mr. Blackham continued.
