Hotel Leela Venture To Sell Assets To Brookfield For Rs 3,950 Crore

Hotel Leela Venture will sell four of its hotels and a property to a fund sponsored by Canada's Brookfield Asset Management for Rs 3,950 crore ($576.41 million), as part of its restructuring, it said on Monday.

The company will sell four Leela hotels at Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi and Udaipur and its property in Agra to Brookfield.

The proceeds of the deal, which will also see the company's owners transfer the 'Leela' brand to Brookfield for all hospitality businesses, will be used to repay existing lenders of the company, Hotel Leela Venture said in a statement.

The company will continue to operate its hotel in Mumbai and own some land in Hyderabad and its development project of residential apartments with Prestige Developers in Bangalore.

The shareholding of the company will remain unaffected after the sale, Hotel Leela Venture said.
