Greenwood Hospitality Interviewed And Featured By Crittenden Research

09.18.09 – Aik Hong Tan was interviewed by Crittenden Research and featured on the front page of their September newsletter. An excerpt from the interview:

“Principal Aik Hong Tan expects to be active during the remainder of the year as he sees properties discounted anywhere from 20% to 50% from the latest peak. … Greenwood Hospitality hopes to acquire 10 to 12 hotels by the end of 2010 through a combination of purchasing distressed properties and adding third-party management contracts. … The company plans to use its relationship with high net worth individuals and several well-capitalized investor groups to acquire upscale select- and full-service hotels that are located in secondary markets. … Anticipate Greenwood to buy properties as all-cash deals when the opportunity arises and don’t be surprised if the company selectively purchases the notes on distressed hotels if they are offered at the right price.”
