HBC (TSX: HBC) has closed the sale of the Lord & Taylor Fifth Avenue building to WeWork Property Investors (WPI) for a total transaction value of CAD $1.1 billion ($850 million), consistent with previously disclosed terms.

'This transaction reinforces HBC's ability to identify undervalued real estate investments with great potential,' said Richard Baker, HBC's Governor and Executive Chairman. 'We continue to strengthen our retail business and unlock the value of our real estate assets.'

With the closing of this transaction, HBC has eliminated the approximately CAD $520 million ($400 million) Lord & Taylormortgage and has reduced borrowings under its asset-based revolving facility.

'We've fortified our balance sheet in short order,' Baker continued. 'Since the end of fiscal 2017, we've paid down approximately CAD $1 billion in debt, providing us flexibility to support our business goals and advance our strategy.'

As previously announced, WPI exercised its option to convert CAD $163 million ($125 million) of the transaction value into a preferred equity interest in the building held by HBC through a joint venture structure.
