Summit Hotel Properties Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results

Stocks in this article: INN

“This follow-on offering positions us well for sustained growth, providing us with capital to acquire strategic hotels over the next several quarters,” said Dan Hansen, Summit’s President and CEO. “The short-term dilutive effect will resolve itself quickly as we execute on hotel acquisitions. Since the offering was completed, we have acquired two hotels and have three under purchase agreement, as well as a very active pipeline of both single assets and small portfolios.”

“Our results were within our expected range but several items affected them both on the positive and negative side,” he noted. “Our RevPAR growth was within our range when excluding the five recently acquired New Orleans properties. Adjusted FFO per diluted unit was aided by a tax benefit of approximately $0.02 per diluted unit. Several factors also influenced operating results at a small number of hotels in some markets during the quarter, including the sequestration, the uncertainty of a government shutdown and sub-par performance. We have addressed the operating shortcomings at those hotels with our third-party management companies and expect to see improvements. We remain positive about the Company’s 2014 outlook.”

The Company’s results included the following:
