“We faced tough comparisons over a very strong 2015 third quarter when our occupancy reached an all-time high of 88 percent for our owned portfolio,” noted Jeffrey H. Fisher, Chatham’s president and chief executive officer. “Our RevPAR recently was adversely impacted more than expected due to lower GDP growth that is restraining business travel, as well as new supply and a significant drop in demand in our oil-industry influenced Houston and western Pennsylvania markets. We have six hotels in those markets and those hotels experienced a RevPAR decline of 21 percent. This performance negatively impacted our RevPAR by approximately 200 basis points. Our reduced guidance with respect to adjusted EBITDA and FFO per share is reflective of reduced RevPAR performance, increased wage pressures and rising guest acquisition costs primarily from online travel agency commissions.”

The company also announced that it will report third quarter 2016 financial results on Thursday, November 3, 2016, before the opening of the market. That same day at 10:00 a.m. ET, Jeffrey H. Fisher, Chatham’s chief executive officer, Dennis M.
