REVPAR International Launches
L3 Services to Assist
Hospitality Lenders, Lawyers, Loan Servicers
Washington DC, January 20, 2009 - Today REVPAR International, a leading hospitality advisory and asset management firm with a strong track record of improving asset value for clients, launched a group of specialized services to help Lenders, Lawyers, Loan Servicers and other industry professionals weather this economic climate and position themselves for the coming rebound and up-cycle.
“Our new L3 services are specifically designed to give Lenders, Lawyers, Loan Services, among others, an edge in dealing with hospitality assets during these challenging times,” said Rick Pastorino, Managing Director of REVPAR International in making the announcement. “Based on our long standing reputation for providing informed, reliable, and conflict-free advice, we are experiencing immediate traction for this group of services.”
“REVPAR delivers optimal recommendations and outcomes to our existing clients, as well as to those who are new to the “down” cycle of our industry,” says Randy Carroll, who spearheads asset management at REVPAR International. “The L3 services rely on our traditional areas of expertise but have been refocused and tailored to provide essential triage services to industry stakeholders in an effort to minimize the pain and suffering, and improve the financial outlook of the client’s hotel assets,” continues Mr. Pastorino. “Just as important, given that we are independent from all the stakeholders, we can provide the client with unbiased objective counseling,” remarks Mr. Carroll.
Hotel owners, operators, lenders, loan servicers, pension funds, insurance companies, private equity groups, and government agencies with assets in the U.S., Caribbean, Europe, and Asia are some of the key industry stakeholders who currently benefit from REVPAR’s asset management and advisory services.
The company’s L3 services encompass all facets of hotel operations including operational reviews, reorganizations, asset management, work-outs, insolvencies, liquidations, refinancing, and capital needs for distressed hospitality real estate or loans.
“No one wants to appear distressed. Our knowledge of all facets of the hotel asset, including the physical plant, operations, capital structure, and associated contracts and agreements that allow the hotel to function, are key value drivers and allow us to craft the best course of action for the client and maximize the inherent value of the asset,” according to Mr. Pastorino. “We work side by side with the other professionals to ensure our client’s interests are maximized.”
