Holloway Lodging Reit Announces Acquisition of Holiday Inn Express® in Stellarton, Nova Scotia

Not for distribution on U.S. wire services or for dissemination in the United States

HALIFAX, Nov. 30, 2012 /CNW/ - Holloway Lodging Real Estate Investment Trust (TSX: HLR.UN) ("Holloway") is pleased to announce that it has acquired a 90% interest in the Holiday Inn Express® hotel located in Stellarton, Nova Scotia for a purchase price of $7.9 million, net of cash acquired. Holloway paid cash on closing of $2.4 million and assumed its pro rata share of the hotel's mortgage. Holloway funded the cash purchase price using cash on hand and its credit line. Holloway expects to receive a distribution of the hotel's excess cash shortly after closing.

The purchase price, net of cash acquired, implies a cap rate of 10.3% on trailing twelve-month net operating income and 11.0% on estimated 2013 net operating income. Holloway intends to refinance the hotel's mortgage in the coming months, which will meaningfully increase the hotel's cash flow.

The Holiday Inn Express® hotel is located in Stellarton, Nova Scotia and is the leading hotel in the market. The hotel was built in 2008 and has 125 rooms, 3,000 square feet of meeting space, a pool and indoor waterslide and a fitness facility.

Michael Rapps, Holloway's Chairman, stated "This acquisition is another milestone for Holloway as it is our first acquisition since completing our balance sheet restructuring. More importantly, this acquisition is accretive to Holloway on a net asset value basis and a cash flow basis and furthers our goal of growing our net asset value per share. We expect this property to contribute close to $1.0 million of net operating income in 2013."
