Summit Hotel Properties Closes on Initial Three Acquisitions; Announces 1Q 2011 Earnings Release Set for May 16

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Summit Hotel Properties, Inc. (NYSE:INN), a real estate investment trust (REIT) specializing in the ownership of premium-branded hotels in the upscale and upper midscale segments, announced today the closure on three previously announced acquisitions, as well as an additional property purchase agreement.

Acquiisitions Ahead of Anticipated Schedule

The company has closed on the previously announced acquisitions of the following properties:

  • A 121-room Staybridge Suites in Denver (Cherry Creek) (top left photo), CO for $83,000 per key, at a post-renovation NTM capitalization rate of 10.3 percent.
  • A 143-room Holiday Inn in Gwinnett/Duluth (Atlanta) (middle right photo), GA for $49,000 a key and a post-renovation NTM capitalization rate of 12.2 percent.
  • A 91-suite Homewood Suites by Hilton in Jackson-Ridgeland, MS (middle left photo)  for $80,000 per key, and a post-renovation NTM capitalization rate of 12.0 percent.
 The company also announced a purchase agreement on the following property:

  • A 122-room Hilton Garden Inn in Gwinnett/Duluth (Atlanta), GA for $115,000 a key and a post-renovation NTM capitalization rate of 9.0 percent.

The purchase of these properties is squarely in line with the company’s strategy of acquiring immediately accretive properties at attractive post-renovation capitalization rates,” said Dan Hansen (lower right photo), Summit’s chief executive officer..

“It also aligns with the company’s “clustering” strategy by grouping hotels in close geographic areas to gain efficiencies and management advantages.

 “This strategy allows our management team to more effectively and efficiently manage the properties to maximize return for our investors and has worked very well for our company over the past nearly 20 years,”
