About the Company: Summit Hotel Properties is a hotel investment company that was recently organized to continue and expand the existing hotel investment business of its predecessor, Summit Hotel Properties, LLC.

The predecessor focused on upscale and midscale hotels. Summit Hotel Properties said it wants to continue its predecessor's business of acquiring, owning, renovating, repositioning and aggressively managing hotel assets throughout the U.S.

The majority of Summit's hotels operate under franchise brands owned by Marriott International (MAR), Hilton Worldwide, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) and Hyatt (H) Hotels and Resorts. Since Jan. 1, 2007, Summit has invested about $305 million in acquisitions and upgrades at its hotels.

About $10 million of net proceeds from the initial public offering will be used to make additional improvements to Summit's hotels.

The company posted total revenue of $121.2 million in 2009 compared with $135.1 million in 2008 and $113.9 million in 2007.

Summit Hotel Properties reported net loss of $15.1 million in 2009 compared with net income of $13.1 million in 2008 and $14 million in 2007.

One of the company's key business risks is that it has a significant amount of debt. Furthermore, certain debt covenants that Summit Hotel has agreed upon may reduce the operational flexibility of the company and its subsidiaries, increasing default risks.
