Financial and Operating Results

This press release presents 2011 data that combines the financial and operating results of the Company’s predecessor entities prior to the consummation of the Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”) on May 16, 2011, and the results of the Company post-IPO. Pro forma RevPAR, Pro forma Hotel EBITDA, and Pro forma Hotel EBITDA Margin exclude non-comparable hotels that were not open for operation or closed for renovations for comparable periods. The prefix “pro forma,” as defined by the Company, denotes operating results which include results for periods prior to its ownership. An explanation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel EBITDA, FFO, and Adjusted FFO, as well as reconciliations of those measures to net income or loss, if applicable, is included at the end of this release.

Pro forma operating statistics assume the Company owned all of its hotels, including the recent acquisitions, since January 1, 2011. Recent acquisitions are included for the full three and six months for each respective period.
