Business, page 72



We have reviewed your responses to comments 18 and 22 of our letter dated January 9, 2014. We continue to believe that average occupancy data is a material metric to investors. Please disclose the percentage or number of your rooms per region or site that are subject to long-term contracts or otherwise occupied or reserved. Please also include revenue derived from occupied versus reserved rooms. Finally, please include a lease expiration table for each of the ten years starting with the current year of the number of rooms subject to long-term contracts that will expire in each year, the annual rental revenues represented by such contracts, and the percentage of gross annual rental revenue represented by such contracts.




We acknowledge the Staff’s comment. We have included historical occupancy information by region and the percentage of contracted rooms for the next two years. Please see pages 74 and 87, respectively.


We acknowledge the Staff’s comment in regards to room contract expirations and have revised our disclosure. Please see page 87. In response to the related comment concerning annual revenue related to these contracts, we believe that this information would be misleading to investors and would not present relevant information regarding potential future revenue of the Company. Our contracts typically require customers to commit to a specified number of rooms and guarantee a minimum level of occupancy for those rooms. Historically, and specifically over the time period presented in the financial statements included in this filing, our customers were generally occupying rooms at levels above the contracted minimums. As such, the requested disclosure of projected revenue under these contracts would be at the minimum contracted levels. We believe, based on historical results, this would likely understate forward contracted revenues materially, misleading investors. We believe that our relevant risk factors and historical financial results provide investors with sufficient information regarding our revenues.

We also acknowledge the Staff’s comment in regards to revenues generated from occupied versus reserved rooms. First, our management does not currently use this metric to manage its business, nor do we disclose it to our investors. Further, we were unable to find comparable disclosure for apartment, hospitality or hotel businesses. We believe the additional disclosures described above coupled with our existing risk factor disclosure regarding customer contracts provides investors with adequate information in regards to our historical revenue and future potential occupancy rates.



We refer to the chart on page 74 and specifically footnote 1 thereto. Please break out revenue derived from room rentals versus other fee revenue.




We acknowledge the Staff’s comment. We have expanded our disclosure in our discussion of our contracts on page 87 and our footnote on page 74. We have an integrated business model where we offer our customer a turnkey service to house, feed and accommodate their employees and contractors. Our contracts provide for two rates, an occupied rate and an unoccupied rate. The occupied rate covers a room and three meals a day. If the customer occupies the room, the occupied rate is charged regardless of number of meals taken or other services utilized by the guest. Accordingly, we do not generally charge separately for services. We have revised the disclosure to clarify this point.
