Summit Hotel Properties Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2013 Results

Summit Hotel Properties, Inc. (NYSE: INN) (the “Company”) today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013.

“We are extremely pleased with the performance of our portfolio in 2013. Despite the significant revenue disruption we experienced as a result of the government shutdown in early October, our fourth quarter was particularly strong and finished well above our initial expectations. The uncertain and volatile economic conditions early in the quarter undoubtedly affected our outlook,” said Dan Hansen, Summit’s President and CEO. “We believe we are in a great position for revenue and earnings growth heading into what we consider the middle portion of the current lodging cycle. With our aggressive acquisition strategy and selective dispositions over the last several quarters, in addition to a solid balance sheet with ample liquidity, we believe our portfolio is in a prime position for outsized growth over the next several years.”
