CWB Franchise Finance, a division of CWB Financial Group, announced it has led a syndicate to provide a $109 million loan facility to InnVest Hotels LP, owners of ninety-two hotels across Canada.  The loan facilities will be used to refinance existing debt and invest in capital projects and opportunistic acquisitions, and are secured against a portfolio of six of InnVest’s assets located across Ontario, Manitoba and New Brunswick. CWB Franchise Finance is proud to hold the majority position and lead the syndicate with partners including ICICI Bank Canada and Fiera Properties Limited.

Their knowledge of the brands and markets coupled with competitive terms, made the transaction run smoothly from start to finish.”

“We’re pleased to support InnVest as they continue to grow across Canada,” said Ed Khediguian, senior vice president of CWB Franchise Finance. “As specialists in the Canadian hospitality industry, we’re looking forward to more opportunities to work with InnVest and other hotel owner-operators looking for tailored, creative, and robust financing structures that align with their borrowing and growth needs. Our in-depth understanding of the hotel market, alignment with high quality owners and products that enhance our clients’ return on equity has been key to our success over the past 15 years.”
