Extended Stay America’s Chief Executive Officer, Gerry Lopez, commented, “We are very pleased with our performance in the fourth quarter and for the full year of 2016. Our RevPAR growth rates exceeded the lodging industry which, when added to solid expense controls and great work by our field based teams of operators, resulted in outstanding performance over the quarter and year. The strong numbers allowed us to invest in our assets and future growth plans, to the tune of $225 million in capital expenditures, reduce our debt by $171 million and return $340 million to paired shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases. Investments in the estate, debt reduction and capital returned to shareholders are exactly the priorities we set forth in our Investor Day last June.”

Mr. Lopez continued, “Looking to 2017, we are encouraged by the improved sense of consumer and business optimism we have seen across the country. These positive views, the completion of our last set of hotel renovations, as well as limited new supply in our chain-scale will allow us to stretch the current phase of the cycle. This year we will maintain our focus on operational excellence and shareholder returns, while at the same time setting the stage for maximizing value well into the future.”
