BHP BUSINESS INITIATIVES
Targeting Investments across the entire spectrum of the "capital stack" allows BHP and their partners flexible investing. BHP will not trade yield for risk, however, underwrites very difficult and comprehensive value-add hospitality projects. The mitigating of investment and operational pitfalls are their highest priority. While BHP and their partners target very large institutional hotel and casino projects, BHP also seeks GP equity investment opportunities in the smaller $2.5 million to $3.5 million range. This is an investment sector that has been severely underserved by private institutional financing sources.
Being mindful of where we sit today in the hospitality investment cycle, capital is uniquely positioned to invest in safer senior debt instruments as well.
Bosworth Hospitality Partners, LLC (BHP) specializes in the direct deployment of capital for both core and complex hospitality investments. BHP' not only brings capital but their expertise in complex structuring, underwriting and asset management of high-yielding, value-add hotel, casino and F&B investments. BHP's founder Richard Bosworth has a lifetime of institutional and entrepreneurial success in both the hospitality transactional, capital markets
and operational management arenas.
Bosworth Hospitality Partner’s approach to investment underwriting is quite simple. Bosworth creates strategic operator alliances with strong alignments of interest while targeting the most profitable mix of sales. Our value creation strategy is based on the simple hotel repositioning philosophy of converting hotel or casino revenue from the wrong sales mix to the highest and best sales mix. Whether that is changing an operation's reliance on OTAs (Online Travel Agencies) to a Brand's Marketing System or converting under-performing outlets to space leases, which not only improves cash flow but also lowers cost of debt capital and produces greater exit valuation multiples. BHP's deep industry relationships, provide their partner's risk mitigation in both operational performance and capital markets execution.
