As consideration for the closing date extension, ARCH, as borrower, entered into a loan agreement with an affiliate of the Company, as lender, in the amount of $3.0 million.  If ARCH defaults under the terms of the purchase and sale agreement, the loan shall be in force, with the principal balance and any accrued and unpaid interest due and payable on July 31, 2017.  If ARCH acquires the remaining hotels on or before April 27, 2017, the loan shall be rescinded.
