Mark S. Hoplamazian, president and chief executive officer of Hyatt Hotels Corporation, said, ?We have made significant progress since our IPO nearly three years ago. We have materially increased earnings, expanded our presence in many key markets, improved guest satisfaction levels, gained market share at many of our properties, and strengthened engagement among our associates across our hotels.

During the quarter, Adjusted EBITDA increased by over 14% as we benefited from the recent acquisitions of hotels in the U.S. and Mexico, as well as from the results of some of our key owned hotels that were renovated last year. North American transient rate growth also benefited overall results.

[quote]?Looking ahead over the long-term, we are well positioned for continued growth. We have strong brands, a high-quality owned real estate portfolio, and a large number of executed management or franchise contracts for future hotels. In the short-term, we are seeing some headwinds, including slower growth of near-term group booking activity in North America and lower revenue growth in a number of international markets due to individual market dynamics. We are confident in our ability to manage through potential economic and marketplace volatility and we continue to maintain margin and cost discipline.

?We are focused on creating long-term value for shareholders. We expect to utilize our strong balance sheet and capital base to opportunistically expand our presence and increase earnings in the years ahead. We recently sold several hotel properties at attractive pricing, while retaining long-term management agreements, as part of our asset recycling strategy. We have repurchased approximately $69 million of our stock since August. These actions reflect and reinforce our belief in the intrinsic value of Hyatt.? [/quote]
