The 7.6% increase in Revenue per Available Room was the net effect of the following: 

  1. A 5.5 percentage point increase in occupancy.
  2. The 1.2% decrease in the average daily rate as a result of the management of dollar-related rates, which lessened the impact of a lower average exchange rate depreciation for February 2018; which was under 8.4%.

The same-store sales calculation considers all of the hotels which have been in Fibra Inn's portfolio for at least half of the period under discussion. In this case, it is important to consider that the Casa Grande Ciudad Juarez hotel has been closed since September 2017 due to its 51-room expansion and conversion to the Holiday Inn brand. Additionally, the AC Hotels by Marriott Guadalajara remained closed during February 2017 during its band conversion.  

Fibra Inn has a portfolio of 43 total properties, with 6,944 rooms; out of which 6,748 are in operation, 145 are under a rebranding process and 51 are in the expansion process. Furthermore, Fibra Inn has a minority interest in three properties, currently being externally developed under the Strategic Hotel Acquisition Pipeline model, representing 633 rooms.
