“We are very excited to announce these strong results and to announce an increase in the common dividend,” said Michael D. Barnello, President and Chief Executive Officer of LaSalle Hotel Properties. “Our portfolio’s RevPAR, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted FFO were all at the high end of our expectations. The combination of strong results year-to-date and our solid outlook for the remainder of the year have contributed to the Company’s decision to increase the midpoints of our full year adjusted EBITDA and adjusted FFO outlook and the Board’s decision to substantially increase the dividend to an annualized rate of $1.12 per share in the third quarter.”
