China's Huazhu Group completes purchase of Germany's Steigenberger Hotels

Shanghai-based hotel operator Huazhu Group Ltd. has closed its purchase of Germany's Steigenberger Hotels AG, according to a Jan. 2 release.

Huazhu first disclosed the deal in November 2019 and said it will pay a cash consideration of about €700 million for the acquisition.

In line with the transaction, Huazhu most recently said its subsidiary, China Lodging Holdings (HK) Ltd., has signed a €440 million term facility and another $500 million revolving credit facility agreement for a three-year term with a bank consortium led by JPMorgan Chase Bank NA. Huazhu will use the loan facilities to fund the Steigenberger purchase.
