CEO Statement:

“The positive development of 2006 has continued into 2007, and although the first quarter is seasonally the weakest, we are pleased to present a strong result. RevPAR is continuing to increase, driven primarily by rate, which should further improve our EBITDA margin. During the quarter, we opened over 2,300 rooms. Given these new openings and our contracted pipeline, we believe that we are in line with our target of adding 20,000 new rooms by the end of 2009.” Kurt Ritter, President & CEO
