Marriott International sees a decline of 11% in income in Q1 19’

Published on : Monday, May 13, 2019

Marriott International has reported a net income of U.S. dollars 375 million in quarter one. It is an 11 per cent decrease from that of 2018.

 

 

 

However, adjusted EBITDA was U.S. dollars 821 million in the quarter, which is a seven per cent increase over the first quarter of 2018.

 

 

 

 

Arne Sorenson, president and chief executive officer of Marriott International, said: “Marriott’s performance in the first quarter was solid. Worldwide systemwide RevPAR for comparable hotels increased 1.1 per cent, net rooms grew 5.3 per cent, and gross fee revenue rose six per cent.”

 

 

 

 

Marriott’s worldwide RevPAR rose 1.1 per cent in the quarter, driven by a 1.5 per cent increase in room rates.

 

 

 

He said, Despite modest RevPAR growth and higher labour costs, they  increased North American house profit margins by 30 basis points and held worldwide house profit margins flat at our company-operated hotels through cost synergies, leading to strong incentive management fee performance in the quarter.

 

 

 

The company added nearly 19,000 rooms during the first quarter, including roughly 3,000 rooms converted from competitor brands and approximately 8,000 rooms in international markets.

 

 

 

At quarter-end, Marriott’s worldwide development pipeline totalled nearly 2,900 hotels and approximately 475,000 rooms, including roughly 25,000 rooms approved, but not yet subject to signed contracts.
