IRVING, Texas...May 7, 2009 - FelCor Lodging Trust Incorporated (NYSE: FCH) today reported operating results for the first quarter and year ended March 31, 2009.
“Our first quarter results reflect extensive cost-cutting measures that were implemented to protect our operating margins in the face of continued deterioration of lodging demand. We continue to work with our operators to create the most efficient cost structure and expect this to result in continued future operational efficiencies. These measures have been extremely successful and have led to better than expected operating margins during the first quarter,” said Richard A. Smith, FelCor’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
