Hyatt kauft Apple Leisure Group

Die Hyatt Hotels Corporation hat eine Übernahme der Apple Leisure Group für 2,7 Mrd. USD verkündet. Die Akquisition soll Hyatts Fußabdruck im Luxury und Leisure Segment weiter vergrößern. Zum ALG Portfolio gehören ca. 33.000 Zimmer in 10 Ländern. Die Übernahme soll im vierten Quartal diesen Jahres abgeschlossen werden.

“With the asset-light acquisition of Apple Leisure Group, we are thrilled to bring a highly desirable independent resort management platform into the Hyatt family. The addition of ALG’s properties will immediately double Hyatt’s global resorts footprint. ALG’s portfolio of luxury brands, leadership in the all-inclusive segment and large pipeline of new resorts will extend our reach in existing and new markets, including in Europe, and further accelerate our industry-leading net rooms growth. Importantly, the combination of this value-creating acquisition and the $2 billion increase in our asset sale commitment will transform our earnings profile, and we expect Hyatt to reach 80% fee-based earnings by the end of 2024.” [Mark Hoplamazian, president and chief executive officer, Hyatt]
