Israel’s Elbit Imaging Ltd. (TASE, NASDAQ: EMITF) announced that its wholly owned indirect subsidiary entered into a Share Purchase Agreement with Astrid JV Sarl, an affiliate of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P., with regard to the sale of its entire (100%) holdings in its wholly owned subsidiary (the “Target”) which owns and operates the Radisson Blu Hotel and the Park Inn Hotel, in Antwerp, Belgium.
The transaction reflects an asset value of approximately Euro 48 million ($53 million) for both Hotels subject to working capital and other adjustments as specified in the agreement. The total net consideration payable to the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary (the “Seller”), following the repayments of the Target’s banks loan, and the aforementioned adjustments, is approximately Euro 27 million ($30 million) out of which Euro 1 million ($1.1 million) will be deposited in escrow to secure the Seller’s indemnification obligations under the Share Purchase Agreement.

Ron Hadassi, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Company, commented, “Signing this transaction for the sale of our hotels in Belgium is the most significant sale by the Company since the completion of debt restructuring in February last year. This step is consistent with the Company’s strategic plan to dispose of assets which have reached maturity and have exhausted their potential, while developing other assets toward their future sale.”
Doron Moshe, Acting CEO and CFO of the Company, added, “The sale of the Company’s hotels in Belgium is an important step in the disposition of the Company’s assets that have reached maturity, with the aim of preparing for repayment of the Company’s debts, which are scheduled to mature in the upcoming years, and also for the investment in other assets, which have not reached maturity yet.”
