07:25 EDTIHG, HOTStarwood may have considered buying IHG in Q1, says FBR Capital
After The Sunday Times reported that InterContinental Hotels (IHG) turned down a takeover bid from an unknown U.S. bidder, FBR said the transaction would have made sense for Starwood Hotels (HOT). The firm believes Starwood may have considered the idea in Q1 since the company did not repurchase any shares. However, it notes recent commentary from management indicates he company intends to exhaust the remaining $614M share buyback authorization before the end of the year, signaling that such a transaction is no longer in the works. FBR views a potential acquisition of InterContinental by Starwood as a "low probability."

05:49 EDTHOTStarwood expects to grow portfolio by more than 40 new hotels across Europe
Starwood announced it is on track to open more than 40 new hotels and resorts across Europe in the next five years, expanding its portfolio by almost 30% with openings in both fast-growing and established markets. Further underlining its long-term growth strategy, Starwood is set to open five new hotels in Turkey this year, including The St. Regis Istanbul which just opened on March 1. In 2014 Starwood experienced a record year of deal signings in Europe with almost 60% more signed deals than in the previous year, largely driven by conversion deals. Starwood continues to see increased interest from owners looking to maximize the value of their assets quickly, with many conversion opportunities amidst growing demand coming from the UK, Germany, France and Southern Europe. The pace of franchise deal signings is expected to continue through 2020 with developers seeing the added value Starwood’s brands deliver to their real estate strategies, particularly in mature markets such as the UK, Germany and France. In Europe, the company’s mid-market portfolio is poised to exceed 50% of Starwood’s development pipeline with more than 15 new hotel openings expected across the three brands by the end of 2017. Aloft will more than double its portfolio in Europe with hotels opening in St. Petersburg and London over the next two years, in addition to two hotels in Germany, opening this summer. Four Points by Sheraton, Starwood’s fastest growing brand will also expand in emerging markets with eight openings planned in Turkey and Russia by 2017. The eco-centric Element brand, introduced to Europe with the opening of Element Frankfurt Airport Hotel last year, will debut in Amsterdam before year-end, and become part of an Aloft and Element dual-hotel development in the historic Tobacco Dock section of East London in 2017.
