IHG Issues Statement On Proposed Legislation To Allow U.S. Businesses To Refuse Service

ATLANTA, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- InterContinental Hotels Group PLC (IHG) [LON: IHG, NYSE: IHG (ADRs)] today issued the following statement:

"IHG is a global hospitality company that prides itself on the diversity of its guests, employees and business partners in nearly 100 countries. Celebrating differences is one of IHG's core values and an integral part of IHG's culture. IHG has regularly voiced support for equal treatment of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. As a result, we are concerned by proposed legislation in a number of states that would allow businesses to refuse service to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender guests and customers. The negative effects of these proposals, if passed into law, would be wide-reaching and significant for both businesses and individuals. IHG opposes these proposals and adds its voice to those urging state officials to reject them."
