 Sonnenblick-Eichner Company Arranges $41.5 million of First Mortgage
Financing for the Maui Coast Hotel in Maui, Hawaii
Los Angeles, CA, June 27, 2006 – Sonnenblick-Eichner Company announced today that it has arranged $41,500,000 in first mortgage financing for the fee simple interest in Maui Coast Hotel in Maui, Hawaii.  The 10-year fixed rate financing was provided by a European based financial institution.  The financing replaces a $22 million, 10-year fixed rate loan which Sonnenblick-Eichner Company arranged in December 2003. 

The 6-story, 265-room Maui Coast Hotel is located in the coastal community of Kihei, just minutes from Maui’s prestigious resort and residential area of Wailea, and approximately 11 miles from Kahalui International Airport.  Completed in 1993, the hotel is consistently the market leader among its competitive set.  The Maui Coast Hotel is the only full service hotel in the Kihei market and has been awarded the American Automobile Association (AAA) “Three-Diamond” designation.  The property is franchised by Vancouver, Canada-based Coast Hotels and Resorts, one of the largest regional hotel chains in Western North America. The property is managed by Paramount Hotels, LLC.

Elliot K. Eichner, principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company commented, “With the compression of spreads coupled with a period of interest only payments and 30-year amortization, the borrower was able to realize significant equity through this refinancing.”   

Patrick Brown, also a principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company, added, “Since the refinancing was structured within the 2-year lock-out period required on securitized transactions, we arranged a forward rate-lock enabling the borrower to capture a lower interest rate before the run-up in treasury rates.”
