-- Financing hotel acquisitions when expenses are unusually high and profits are low is fairly difficult and many such projects are automatically channeled through the SBA program which specially in case of the 504 program require higher processing effort. It is often a mundane process to add back very few seller expenses such as depreciation, amortization, and interest to the cashflow but when there are other excessive costs, identifying and verifying them is a difficult task. Additionally, even when these costs are identified, the lenders may show little appetite for crediting these costs to the cashflow. Our challenge in this project was exactly that where we had to analyze the financials and extract the hidden costs that would be qualified and provable for crediting to the cashflow. Both hotels are financed under the conventional program for a total of 12.5 million where Clarion is financed at 80% Loan to Value with 1 million PIP and Holiday Inn Express at 70% LTV of 8.5 million and 25 year amortization.
