ALLIED HOTEL PROPERTIES ANNOUNCES THIRD QUARTER 2000
Vancouver, B.C. – Allied Hotel Properties Inc. (“Allied”, stock symbol AHP) has reported its financial
results for the nine months ended September 30, 2000.
Revenues were $59.9 million and gross profit was $33.0 million for the nine months ending September
30, 2000, increasing by 22% from $49.1 million and 17% from $28.2 million, respectively, from the
prior year period. Operating income of $5.8 million was reported for the period, a decrease of 7% from
$6.3 million for the same period in 1999. The hospitality industry is historically cyclical, with average
daily rates increasing for the third quarter from the first and second quarters. A strike at two of the
Company’s hotels during the peak summer months had a negative impact on operating income. As a
result, the third quarter of the year generated operating income of $4.8 million compared to $5.3 million
for the third quarter of 1999.
Net loss for the period was $2.3 million (2¢ per share), an increase of 13% compared to $2.1 million
(3¢ per share) for the first nine months of 1999. Higher interest expense and the strike at two hotels
were primarily responsible for the increased loss.
Effective January 1, 2000, Allied adopted the new Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants
(“CICA”) new standard for accounting for income taxes. This standard was adopted retroactively
without restating the financial statements of any prior periods. As a result, the company recorded an
increase in retained earnings, with a corresponding increase in future income tax asset (net), of $5.7
million as at January 1, 2000. This new policy also resulted in a significant recovery of future income
taxes in the first nine months.
Allied is a growth oriented hotel ownership and management company with hotel properties in Greater
Vancouver, Edmonton and Toronto. Its hotel portfolio currently consists
