The Sunstone team is focused on achieving industry-leading stockholder returns by improving our portfolio quality and scale while gradually deleveraging our balance sheet. Sunstone’s strategy is predicated on:

Proactive Portfolio Management: Improving our overall portfolio quality and growth potential through portfolio-wide initiatives such as market complexing and the sale of certain non-strategic assets;

Intensive Asset Management: Positioning our portfolio for growth as a result of recent and ongoing renovations and asset management initiatives, including streamlining of F&B operations and staffing models and energy retro-commissioning;

Disciplined External Growth: Pursuing high-quality acquisitions using our shares as currency when such acquisitions can be executed at attractive relative valuations;

Measured Balance Sheet Improvement: Reducing our corporate leverage and increasing our debt-service coverage through improving operations, selling highly-levered assets and by acquiring high-quality, unencumbered hotels.
