Comments from the Chief Executive Officer                                                           

Luis Barrios, Chief Executive Officer of Hoteles City, commented:

"Hoteles City's operating and financial indicators in the second quarter of 2014 continue to strengthen on different levels. We achieved strong year-over-year growth of 18.0% in Installed Room Nights and 24.2% in Occupied Room Nights.  RevPAR expanded 8.7% this quarter, despite our recent new hotel openings, which tend to average-down chain-wide occupancy levels during the ramp up process. 

Total Revenues rose 25.7% to $338.3 million and Adjusted EBITDA increased 38.3% to $111.4 million. This quarter's rapid growth in installed capacity has been accompanied by higher levels of profitability at the Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA and Net Income levels, despite an environment of slow economic growth in the country.

Hoteles City's second quarter and year-to-date results reflect the effectiveness of our business model and highly-efficient hotel operations.  It is important to highlight that Hoteles City's strong performance during the first half of 2014 was achieved during an environment of gradual improvement in the Mexican economy.  Comparable annual GDP growth as of the first quarter 2014 was 1.8%, well below consensus growth expectations at the beginning of the year. However, the dynamic of greater productive activity across certain regions of the country has delivered a favorable impact that will benefit Hoteles City.

With respect to our activities in the development of new hotels, during the second quarter of the year we commenced operations at City express Paraiso, Tabasco, which extends our broad hotel footprint in the energy corridor in the Gulf of Mexico. With the opening of this hotel we continue to make progress executing on our 2014 Development Plan.  We maintain our objective of achieving an additional 14 new hotel openings in the coming months, aiming to close 2014 with 100 hotels in operation.

We recently passed the one-year anniversary of our listing on the Mexican Stock Exchange.  During our inaugural year as a publicly-traded company, we have consistently reported positive operating and financial results, reflecting the favorable evolution of our business. Likewise, we have remained close to the market, implementing best practices in investor relations and corporate governance. Looking ahead, we remain focused on delivering strong operational results, while pursuing a long-term strategic vision and business plan."
