“For the first six months of 2019 our portfolio has outperformed the overall market when compared to the U.S. national RevPAR growth of 1.3% for all chain scales excluding luxury and upper upscale reported by Smith Travel Research. Our proforma same-store RevPAR for the second quarter 2019 excluding the SpringHill Suites increased 0.4% as compared to (0.4)% for upscale and 0.0% for upper midscale, as reported by Smith Travel Research. Importantly for the first six months our operating results as a portfolio are slightly ahead of our projections. In the first six months of 2019 Same-Store Hotel EBITDA is approximately 0.7% higher than the same period in the prior year at $14.9 million compared to $14.8 million, and our margins while declining in the quarter, did so moderately reducing 30 bps from 40.2% in 2018 to 39.9% in 2019 and were 39.8% for the first six months of 2019 compared to 40.1%. Additionally, we have elected to not renew 3 hotel management contracts and with new management we believe we will be better positioned to increase performance on our San Antonio and Jacksonville assets which experienced $0.33 million in revenue decline and $0.28 million in EBITDA decline in thenull
