Summit Hotel Properties has successfully completed the refinancing of its $200m senior credit facility in partnership with GIC, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund.
This significant financial move eliminates all material debt maturities for the company through 2024 and maintains competitive pricing, reinforcing its financial stability.
Under the new credit agreement, both the $125m Revolving Credit Facility and the $75m Term Loan have an extended maturity date of September 2028.
Importantly, the interest rate pricing remains in line with the previous credit facility, with SOFR+215 basis points for the $125m Revolver and SOFR+210 basis points for the $75m Term Loan.
The agreement largely maintains other terms from the joint venture’s previous credit facility agreement.
Improved financial outlook
With this successful refinancing, Summit Hotel Properties faces no material debt maturities until 2024. Furthermore, the company’s average length to maturity now exceeds three years, including extension options.
