LOS ANGELES & THE WOODLANDS, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 26, 2019--Platinum Eagle Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: EAGL) (“Platinum Eagle”), a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company, and Target Logistics Management, LLC (“Target Lodging”), the largest provider of specialty rental accommodations and integrated hospitality services in the U.S., announced today that Target Lodging has been awarded contracts to build a new 400-bed community in Carlsbad, New Mexico, located in the Delaware Basin, a high-growth region within the Permian Basin. This will be the Target Lodging’s third location in New Mexico and further expands the Target Lodging network of communities to 16 across the Permian Basin.

The new community will further enhance Target Lodging’s ability to support the Delaware Basin portion of the Permian Basin, an expanding hub of production, development, and capital investment by major energy producers. Underwritten by multi-year contracts with a major producer and several large oil and gas companies, the new facility will include Target Lodging’s full suite of services, including-high-quality accommodations, culinary services, amenities, and hospitality services.
“Opening this new community in Carlsbad demonstrates our commitment to our customers in the Permian Basin, who continue to invest in this highly attractive region,” said Brad Archer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Target Lodging. “This strategic location is well positioned to expand as this high growth area continues to see robust capital investment. Moreover, this strategic expansion aligns with our clear plan to grow our Permian footprint and our customer base.”
The new community being built with single-occupancy accommodations complete with private bathrooms will feature a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen and dining facility, laundry on premises, and indoor and outdoor recreational options. Like Target Lodging’s other communities, the new Carlsbad community provides customers with access to amenities such as 24-hour culinary services, housekeeping, security, and a code of conduct program that includes a “zero tolerance” drug and alcohol policy.
Troy Schrenk, Chief Commercial Officer of Target Lodging, added, “Our clients rely on Target Lodging to be where the need is and our customers operating in this significant area of the Delaware Basin have committed to growing their business in partnership with Target. By providing our clients with convenient locations, unparalleled suite of flexible accommodation and culinary solutions, we continue to deliver on our differentiated value proposition.”
