Starwood European Real Estate Finance Limited: Portfolio update

 

Starwood European Real Estate Finance Limited (the "Company" and, together with its subsidiaries, the "Group") hereby announces the agreement of commercial terms, and significant de-risking, of the largest hospitality asset in its lending portfolio.

 

The Borrower of the Hotel, Dublin, Ireland, on which the Company has a €60 million loan, has granted a licence to the Health Service Executive ("HSE"), Ireland's  public healthcare provider, which allows the HSE to use the Hotel and Convention Centre for accommodation and the provision of healthcare and other important services to the Irish public. This licence will assist the HSE with delivering significant additional accommodation capacity and in its efforts to manage the expected increased demand for accommodation related to the coronavirus outbreak. The contract is effective immediately.

 

This hotel is the largest hospitality exposure in the portfolio, equating to approximately 10 per cent of total invested assets at 31 December 2019 and approximately 32 per cent of the Group's hospitality exposure at 31 December 2019.  The Group's portfolio consists of a mixture of hotels under construction (which are therefore not expected to be income generating at this time), as well as income generating assets. As at 31 December 2019, approximately 73 per cent of the hospitality portfolio (by loan value) was considered income generating of which this asset equates to approximately 44 per cent (by loan value) of the income producing hospitality portfolio. The Group therefore considers that this contract has significantly de-risked the hospitality exposure of the portfolio.
