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.

Food & Beverage: Remarkably Resilient


In the wake of the devastation that disrupted every aspect of their operations, the hotel food & beverage industry is proceeding with cautious optimism and a measure of hope as it re-emerges from the pandemic's darker days. It is also bringing forward all the lessons learned from the challenges that were faced, and integrating them into their current, day-to-day operations. For example, new digital interfaces that minimize physical contact, including tableside ordering systems and QR code menus. Here to stay are also features such as packaged room service meals and cocktails; on-property, quick-service food options; a greater emphasis on outdoor dining and pop-up restaurants; gourmet home meal kits; live-streamed cooking classes; and virtual wine-tastings. Still, some challenges remain, such as coping with a persistent labor shortage and maintaining scrupulous sanitation standards. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on what some leading hotels are doing to integrate these changes into their F&B operations as they rebound with a remarkable resiliency.
