Value Place Acquires 22 Properties for $115 Million, Accelerates Franchise Development
Acquired properties formerly owned by partnership backed by Angelo, Gordon & Co.
Value Place, the nation?s largest?economy?extended-stay lodging owner, operator, manager and franchisor, has announced today that it has acquired 22 operating properties owned by its largest franchisee, a partnership comprised of Angelo, Gordon & Co. and other prominent real estate investors. The $115 million purchase price includes the assumption of existing debt. The acquired properties, in Austin, Columbus, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Denver, Indianapolis, Washington, DC, Florida and elsewhere, strategically enhance the brand and improve operating efficiencies in attractive growth?markets.
The $115 million sales price represents an approximately 9 percent capitalization rate on the trailing 12-month EBITDA, after reserve, collectively generated by the properties.
?This acquisition continues the growth of the Value Place brand, and is part of our larger plan to develop and acquire properties corporately, upgrade our properties to maintain high quality standards, and accelerate the growth of our franchise network,? said Dan Weber, Chief Executive Officer of Value Place. ?These twenty-two high quality properties are in many of the same major?markets?as our existing portfolio, which allows us to leverage?marketing?and management resources.?
Value Place now owns 74 of the 185 franchise locations and develops, franchises, and manages Value Place properties throughout the U.S.
Value Place?s growth strategy was recently endorsed by virtue of a $100 million capital investment from Lindsay Goldberg LLC, a New York-based private equity firm with $10 billion of total capital under management.
?We are pleased to add these twenty-two properties to Value Place?s growing portfolio of owned and managed properties,? said Kyle Rogg, Chief Operating Officer and President of Value Place. ?We have the utmost respect for the quality and performance of the prior ownership and management organization. We are also excited that this transaction accelerates our franchise growth efforts through a development agreement to build new franchised Value Place properties in Tampa and Charlotte, two growing markets with a great need for our brand.?
The seller is a partnership between?Angelo, Gordon?& Co., a New York-based, privately-held registered investment advisor currently managing approximately $24 billion in assets, and?Belvedere Capital Real Estate Partners, a private investment firm that, along with various institutional and private partners, has invested in more than 10 million square feet of office, industrial, and?retail?properties.
