FelCor Lodging (FCH) Ashford Hospitality Trust (AHT) responds to the announcement that the Board of Directors of FelCor Lodging Trust Incorporated (FCH) had entered into a merger contract with RLJ Lodging Trust (RLJ); Ashford submitted a $8.22/share offer on April 20.

Ashford Trust reported that it had submitted a revised offer to FelCor’s Board of Directors on April 20, 2017, comprised of 50% cash consideration and valued at $8.22 per share based on the April 24, 2017 closing share price of AHT of $6.43 per share. Despite the acceptance of RLJ’s all-stock offer, FelCor pushed hard for a cash offer from Ashford Trust.Ashford Trust believes its offer would have been more attractive to shareholders than the RLJ offer as it included 50% cash, would have provided a more certain path to future value creation through guaranteed synergies and operational enhancements and offered a higher dividend yield on the stock component of the bid. Ashford Trust is disappointed that the FelCor Board of Directors decided not to meaningfully engage on the recently revised offer.
