Same-Property Hotel EBITDA Margin: Same-Property Hotel EBITDA Margin was 30.8%, which was down 1 basis point compared to the second quarter of 2018.

Total Portfolio RevPAR: Total Portfolio RevPAR was $181.09, a 1.7% increase compared to the second quarter of 2018.

Dividends: The Company declared its second quarter dividend of $0.275 per share to common stockholders of record on June 28, 2019.

'We were pleased with our overall performance during the second quarter as our RevPAR growth modestly exceeded our expectations and we continued to achieve outstanding expense controls throughout the portfolio,' said Marcel Verbaas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Xenia. 'Despite an overall challenging operating environment, our uniquely positioned portfolio and asset management platform continue to drive positive results, evidenced by the fact that our Same-Property Hotel EBITDA margin remained virtually flat on relatively muted 1.3% RevPAR growth. With well-documented pressures on labor costs and continued growth in real estate taxes and insurance costs, we believe that our ability to maintain margins in this environment is an impressive accomplishment.'

'We remain bullish about the long-term outlook for our significantly upgraded portfolio, while remaining cautious in our outlook for the remainder of the year due to the uncertainty in the overall economic climate and lodging supply pressures in various markets throughout our portfolio,' continued Mr. Verbaas. 'Our geographic diversity continues to serve us well, with Houston, San Diego, Napa, San Francisco and Dallas being particular bright spots from a top-line perspective during the second quarter. We continue to be encouraged by the overall results in our top markets, offsetting more difficult comparisons in a number of our smaller markets. With an overall portfolio that is in excellent physical condition and a number of value enhancement projects well underway, we believe we remain well-positioned for both the near term and the years ahead.'
