Metrospaces Issues Letter to Shareholders with Detailed Reporting On New LOI to Acquire Front Beach Lot for 95-Room Luxury Hotel

Metrospaces, Inc. (MSPC) Today issued a letter to shareholders explaining in more detail the Margarita Island hotel project, which includes certain forward-looking limited economic forecasts on the project

MIAMI, FL, September 25th, 2013 – (Accesswire) - Letter to Our Shareholders To Metrospaces, Inc. (MSPC) Shareholders:

As we begin this new exciting phase in the Company’s development as a publicly traded company, we are obligated to always look carefully at new opportunities at generating consistent and clear shareholder value. The purpose of taking our company public was to be able to access capital markets and execute for our shareholders, the sort of projects we have been involved in for the last 8 years as principals. We will continue to have a strong focus on mid-sized luxury residential and apart-hotels such as La Tour 320 and Chacabuco 1353 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, since they provide for consistent cash flow, are easily financed and very liquid. However, our experience in branded hotel development will certainly be were as a company, Metrospaces will make its mark and create a lot of shareholder value in the meantime.

In reference to our press release of September 24th, Playa Manzanillo is one of Margarita Island’s most re-known private beaches. It is of splendid beauty, secluded and very well highly sought out by daily users, since it’s currently open to general public for the time being. The fact that it’s completely private makes it an absolutely perfect location for a high-end beach hotel and spa. It is currently owned by an Italian development group that was looking for experienced operating partners in the region. Our agreement with the current owners is a staged acquisition were Metrospaces will initially acquire up to 60% of the project up to completion, and another 20% after completion for a total of 80% ownership. The project will be financed by a combination of internal working capital, seller’s financing and senior construction loan from a commercial bank in Venezuela. This project will be executed under the highest luxury standards for a beach-front hotel and spa. Additionally, it will have 12 luxury villas sold under fractional ownership, from which we expect sales in the order of approximately $16M. Total approximate project costs are estimated at $13M (total costs includes, land construction, legal, marketing and other expenses). Our financial forecast on the project yields that hotel development can be fully paid for with the operating income from the villas real estate project. This would allow us to keep the hotel free and clear, even after senior loan payback. Current acquisitions for hotels in Margarita Island have been executed at valuations of 5-8 X EBITDA. Total project costs, including marketing, land and construction is expected to come in at approximately $13M. Additionally, we expect hotel operations to generate revenue of approximately $10M with a 35% EBITDA once stabilized. At that time, the company will determine whether to sell the hotel and move on to a new project, or keep it as an ongoing operation. In either case, we expect the hotel side of the business to be equally successful, since we will take advantage of an increasing international tourist demand a growing high-level class in Venezuela that is now making the national market just as interesting as the international market. Margarita Island has a near-historic high occupancy rates so we believe this is the perfect timing for this project, and we expect this to be the first of many more to come.

We expect to close on the land in the next 60 days.

Last but certainly not the least, we want to thank all our new shareholders for taking an interest in our story and has given us the chance to be where we are currently at! We will continue to work very hard to make your investment in our company a success!
