DALLAS, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ashford Hospitality Prime, Inc. (NYSE: AHP) ("Ashford Prime" or the "Company") announced today that it has entered into a new $100 million secured credit facility which replaces the Company's previous credit facility that was scheduled to mature this month. The new credit facility provides for a three-year revolving line of credit and bears interest at a range of 2.25% - 3.50% over LIBOR, depending on the leverage level of the Company. There are two, one-year extension options subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions. The new credit facility includes the opportunity to expand the borrowing capacity by up to $150 million to an aggregate size of $250 million. Since the Company had a zero balance on the previous credit line, no cash was utilized to pay it down upon termination. Merrill Lynch acted as the lead arranger and Bank of America, N.A. as the sole administrative agent. Other participating lenders include KeyBank, Morgan Stanley, and Credit Agricole.
