Our management team has experience with the condo-hotel model and we believe it is an attractive opportunity to turn a modest investment into tremendous value for our shareholders. In addition, the close proximity of The Hyde and the Crowne Plaza Beach Resort provides for operational efficiencies and sales and marketing synergies as it presents our team with a wide variety of product offerings and amenities to offer our guests. This should benefit both projects and the Company as a whole.”
