RLH Corporation sold Washington's Hotel RL Spokane at the Park for $35 million. The hotel is the ninth of 11 hotels being marketed for sale previously disclosed in October 2017. RLH Corporation’s total gain on the sale is expected to be approximately $14.8 million. Together with the other eight previously announced sales, RLH Corporation’s gain on sales is approximately $42.2 million.

“With the completion of the Spokane sale we have now completed nine of the 11 targeted real estate sales,” Greg Mount, president and CEO of RLH Corporation, said in a statement. “We continue to see strong real estate market conditions and are optimistic that we will complete the sale of the final two assets prior to yearend. Given the strong real estate market conditions we have begun to market our interests in our hotel in Atlanta, and in our leased hotels in Anaheim and Kalispell, Mont., reinforcing our asset-light strategy and enhancing our liquidity and capital capacity to be available for the growth of our franchise business.”

Hotel RL Spokane at the Park accounted for $2.8 million in revenue in Q1 2018 and $14.6 million in revenue on an annual basis in 2017. The hotel’s adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization on consolidated reporting was $900,000 and RLH Corporation’s share of the adjusted EBITDA was approximately $500,000 for Q1 2018. On an annual basis in 2017, the hotel’s adjusted EBITDA on consolidated reporting was $4.8 million and RLH Corporation’s share of the adjusted EBITDA was approximately $2.6 million. This impact does not take into account the previously announced corporate overhead adjustments to reduce operating costs.
