Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (NYSE: PEB) yesterday announced that it has closed on the sale of the 343-room, Liaison Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. for $111.0 million.
The sale price of $111.0 million reflects a 16.9x EBITDA multiple and a 4.9% net operating income capitalization rate (after an assumed annual capital reserve of 4.0% of total hotel revenues) based on the trailing twelve-month operating performance for the period ended December 31, 2018.
Proceeds from the sale of the Liaison Capitol Hill will be utilized for general business purposes which may include reducing the Company’s outstanding debt. As a result of this completed sale, the Company estimates its total net debt to trailing 12-month corporate EBITDA will be approximately 4.8 times at the end of the first quarter 2019.
