The offering is expected to close on February 14, 2011.
The underwriters have been granted a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 3,900,000 shares at the public offering price, less the underwriting discount, to cover over-allotments, if any. All the shares are being offered by the Company.
The shares are expected to begin trading on February 9, 2011 on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “INN.”
Concurrent with the closing of the offering, the Company expects to raise additional proceeds through a private placement to an affiliate of InterContinental Hotels Group on the terms described in the prospectus relating to the offering.
The Company will contribute the net proceeds of the offering and concurrent private placement to its operating partnership, which will use the net proceeds to repay or extinguish existing indebtedness and to fund capital improvements at the Company’s hotels and for general corporate and working capital purposes.
