- Receives Repayment on 424 Fifth Avenue Loan -  Starwood Property Trust, Inc. (NYSE: STWD) today announced that the Company recently received the full repayment of its $379 million commitment in the construction loan for 424 Fifth Avenue, the former Lord & Taylor Building.

Starwood Property Trust, Inc. (NYSE: STWD) today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to $400 million of its outstanding common shares and convertible notes over a period of one year. The share repurchase program will be funded through the Company's existing cash.

Today our yield is greater than 11x the U.S. 10-Year Treasury yield for the first time in our history and compared to a long-term average of 4x. Our stock may from time to time represent a very attractive use of available cash," commented Barry Sternlicht, Chairman and CEO of Starwood Property Trust. Purchases made pursuant to the program will be made either in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions from time to ...
