Oscar Calvillo, Chief Executive Officer of Fibra Inn, stated: “As of this year, Fibra Inn became an internalized Fibra. Undoubtedly, the benefits are great, in terms of the efficiencies that will be reflected year over year in general and administration expenses as well as in terms of corporate governance, which position us among the best Fibras in the market.

On another note, it is important to mention that we have begun the process for the strategic sale and eventual flipping of some of our hotels. As such, during the year, we expect to achieve favorable results, which will translate into an additional benefit for our investors. For 2017, we have chosen to pay an objective base quarterly dividend of Ps. 0.25 per CBFI; there will also be additional estimated dividends based on the achievement of certain strategic objectives. This is the reason that, during this quarter we reached a 9.2% dividend yield, the highest in our history. Additionally liabilities are 66% covered with the contracted interest rate swaps”.
