Fibra Inn Announces Monthly Report of Hotel Indicators for January 2016
Deutsche Bank Mexico, S.A., Banking institution, Trust Division F/1616 or Fibra Inn (BMV: FINN13, OTC: DFBRY) ("Fibra Inn" or "the Company"), the Mexican real estate investment trust specializing in the hotel industry serving the business traveler with global brands, today announced its operating results for its hotel indicators as of January 2016.
|MONTHLY SAME-STORE SALES|
|38 hotels||January 2016||January 2015||Change %|
|Room Revenue (Ps. millions)||109.5||95.3||14.9%|
|Occupancy exc. addition of rooms||51.7%||49.2%||2.6 pp|
|RevPar exc. addition of rooms||591.2||514.7||14.9%|
The 14.9% increase in Revenue per Available Room (RevPar excluding the addition of rooms) was the net effect of:
|a.||A 9.2% ADR increase due to the optimization of rates as a result of the use of technological tools, operating efficiencies as well as some U.S. dollar-denominated rates. The Company continues to experience double-digit ADR growth, specifically in 14 hotels of its portfolio during the month of January.|
|b.||Occupancy levels increased 2.6 percentage points. It is important to mention that traditionally, during the months of December and January, there is an expected decrease in occupancy due to the seasonality of the holiday season that results in a lower number of business travelers. However, January occupancy rose compared to January 2015.|
Total Sales for January 2016 were:
|MONTHLY TOTAL SALES|
|January 2016||January 2015||Change %|

The same-store sales calculation considers 38 comparable properties, as the criterion is to include hotels which have been in Fibra Inn's portfolio for at least half of the quarter. In this report, a total of three hotels were excluded: two recently-built hotels that have no operational history, the Courtyard by Marriott Saltillo and the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Coatzacoalcos. Additionally, the Courtyard by Marriott Chihuahua is excluded, as it is under construction.
