HOUSTON, July 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Moody National REIT II, Inc. (the "REIT"), announced today that it has satisfied its minimum offering requirement of $2,000,000 in its initial public offering and that all subscription proceeds held in escrow have been released to the REIT. In addition, the REIT's board of directors has authorized the REIT's officers to pursue the acquisition of a hotel property located in Boston, Massachusetts commonly known as the Hampton Inn Boston Logan Airport ("Hampton Inn Boston") from a third party seller. The REIT's board of directors also authorized an initial cash distribution payable to the REIT's stockholders equal to an annualized distribution rate of 7.0% on the REIT's public offering price of $25.00 per share.
Boston includes several features which the REIT targets in selecting its investments, including multiple major universities, a number of world-renowned inpatient hospitals, and a skilled and growing workforce.
"Our investors desire a non-correlated, fixed income, inflationary hedge investment. Moody National REIT II will continue to strive to deliver on each of those needs for our investors by deploying capital into premium branded select-service hotels nationwide," said Brett Moody, CEO and Chairman of the REIT.
The acquisition of the Hampton Inn Boston is subject to significant conditions to closing, including: (1) the assignment of the purchase agreement for the Hampton Inn Boston from Moody National REIT I, Inc. to the REIT, (2) the REIT's ability to raise sufficient additional offering proceeds in its public offering to fund the purchase price of the Hampton Inn Boston, (3) the REIT's ability to obtain appropriate financing secured by the Hampton Inn Boston, and (4) the absence of a material adverse change to the Hampton Inn Boston prior to the date of the acquisition. There is no assurance that the REIT will close the acquisition of the Hampton Inn Boston on the terms described above or at all.
Moody National is pleased to announce that the REIT has broken escrow and remains focused on providing investors viable investment opportunities existing within the hospitality asset class. Sponsored by Moody National REIT Sponsor, LLC, the REIT is the second of its kind for the real estate firm and aims to primarily acquire Marriott, Hilton, and Hyatt select-service hotel brands.
