Sandpiper Lodging Trust Announces Third Quarter 2020 Dividend to Shareholders

USA, Richmond, Virginia. November 30, 2020

Sandpiper Lodging Trust ("SLT") announced that its Board of Trustees declared a third quarter dividend of $0.1706 per share to shareholders of record on November 11, 2020. This represents an annualized dividend of 7% on the current share price of $9.75 and was distributed on November 20, 2020.

Carter Rise, CEO of SLT, stated, "After a very challenging second quarter, SLT continued to validate a key component of our investment thesis - that our focus on economy and mid-scale extended stay hotels provides significant protection during an economic downturn, on an absolute basis and especially relative to our nightly-stay competitors. While none of us contemplated a world-wide pandemic, many of the same economic characteristics played out and demonstrated why this is a resilient, stable, cash-producing investment. The third quarter showed continued, sequential improvement from the second quarter at our properties."

SLT owns 15 properties located in six states from the Mid-Atlantic region to Texas.

Guest Service: Health and Safety First

Though expectations are that hotels will return to some semblance of normalcy in 2021, their highest priority must continue to be the health and safety of guests and employees. To that end, hotels are training their guest service personnel in enhanced cleaning routines, which include the following practices - bathrooms, elevator buttons, remote controls and other high-touch items, are disinfected and cleaned with a higher frequency; all tables, chairs and menus in restaurants are cleaned at a much higher frequency, and after each seating; floor markers in public areas to remind guests and team members to maintain physical distance; hand alcohol stations and disposable gloves in lobbies and restaurants; loose items such as pens, note pads and information material removed from rooms and meeting rooms; limiting the number of seats in restaurants and public areas; and revised food & beverage offerings. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will review how guest service personnel are being trained to maintain health and safety protocols in their operations.
