MONTERREY, Mexico, July 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Deutsche Bank Mexico, S.A., Banking institution, Trust Division F/1616 or Fibra Inn (BMV:FINN13) (OTC:DFBRY) ("Fibra Inn" or "the Company"), an internally managed Mexican real estate investment trust specializing in the hotel industry serving the traveler with global brands, announced that it has begun the process for the sale of non-strategic assets, as part of its capital recycling program. As such, it has signed a binding agreement for the sale of the Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham Culiacan hotel.

The agreed-upon price was Ps. 85.0 million, and the property has a significantly lower cap rate than the Company's implied cap rate. This property was originally acquired as part of a hotel portfolio that has performed successfully and has altogether reached a cap rate for the trailing twelve months exceeding 9.5%.

Fibra Inn will invest the transaction proceeds in other projects that offer more attractive profitability, including the purchase and cancellation of certificates.

The Company continues to market the sale of some of its other properties in an orderly and efficient manner, Therefore, we expect to announce additional hotel sales transactions in the future.

The buyer intends to keep the current hotel brand, subject to the approval of the international hotel chain. This will enact the early termination contract for the hotel operator, as well as early termination for the leasing of the non-lodging spaces at no cost for the Company.

"The capital recycling strategy began a few months ago. With this transaction, Fibra Inn reiterates its commitment to this strategy, by selling assets and using those resources to invest in other projects that are more profitable for the Company and therefore generate additional shareholder value. There are other hotels that we consider to be ideal candidates for sale and as asset managers, we will continue working towards higher efficiency," stated Oscar Calvillo, Chief Executive Officer.
