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.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Now More Than Ever

One theory about the pandemic states that future viruses are more likely to originate and flourish due to global warming. If true, the urgency to accelerate the adoption of eco-friendly practices is greater than ever. Of course, there are many other reasons to create a sustainable operation, including reduced utility costs, savings on operational costs, healthier and happier guests and employees, and positive publicity, marketing and community goodwill. Many hotels are introducing innovative programs into their operations - from recycling bins in guest rooms to starting a roof top garden. Other hotels are using eco-friendly cleaning products, reusing towels and sheets, sourcing locally grown food, supporting the use of electric vehicles, and permitting guests to refill their reusable water bottles with clean, filtered water. Finally, some hotels are encouraging guests to get involved by making it possible for them to participate in local community clean-up projects. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
