Fibra Inn Announces Monthly Report of Hotel Indicators for February 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 February 2016.
|MONTHLY SAME-STORE SALES|
|February 2015||Change %|
|Room Revenue (Ps. millions)||129.2||105.2||22.8%|
|Occupancy exc. addition of rooms||65.0%||59.4%||5.6 pp|
|RevPar exc. addition of rooms||772.4||628.8||22.8%|
The 22.8% increase in Revenue per Available Room (RevPar excluding the addition of rooms) was the net effect of:
a. A 12.3% ADR increase resulting from double-digit growth in hotel rates in over half of the Company's portfolio. This increase is partly driven by sales strategies implemented to optimize rates, as well as to a percentage of rates that are negotiated in U.S. dollars, due to global brands.
b. Occupancy levels increased 5.6 percentage points, mainly impacted by the economic activity of Chihuahua and Guadalajara, among others. Furthermore, some hotels in the portfolio are showing signs of stabilization following the addition of rooms and renovation of common areas; particularly, the hotels in Toluca and Tampico.
Total Sales for February 2016 were:
|MONTHLY TOTAL SALES|

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.
