Folkestone Limited’s (ASX:FLK) real estate funds management subsidiary, FolkestoneFunds Management Limited (FFM), is pleased to announce that the Folkestone Sydney Airport Hotel Fund (Fund) has settled the acquisition of the Mercure Sydney International Airport Hotel (Hotel) for $76.4 million (excluding transaction costs).

The 271 room hotel, operated by the Accor Group under their Mercure brand, is located approximately 1.0 kilometre from the Sydney Airport International Terminal, 3.0 kilometres from the Sydney Airport Domestic Terminal and 9.0 kilometres from the Sydney CBD.

The Hotel has a diverse revenue mix comprising leisure, corporate, local and overseas tourism and airline crew.

The Fund, which has secured commitments of $50.0 million from a range of high net worth investors and family offices, closed significantly oversubscribed three weeks after its launch.

Folkestone’s Managing Director, Greg Paramor, said “the success of the capital raising demonstrates the depth of Folkestone’s investor relationships and their appetite for quality real estate investments.”

Mr Paramor said “The Folkestone Sydney Airport Hotel Fund offers investors the opportunity to invest in a well-located hotel which Folkestone plans to refurbish and reposition and is forecast to generate an equity IRR of 14.4 per cent per annum (post fees, pre-tax) over the life of the Fund.”
