U.S. and Systemwide Comparable RevPAR Increased 4.2% and 2.3%, Respectively 

CHICAGO (August 2, 2016) - Hyatt Hotels Corporation ("Hyatt" or the "Company") (NYSE: H) today reported second quarter 2016 financial results. Net income attributable to Hyatt was $67 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2016, compared to $40 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2015. Adjusted net income attributable to Hyatt was $87 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2016 compared to $41 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2015. Refer to the table on page 3 of the schedules for a summary of special items impacting Adjusted net income and Adjusted earnings per share in the three months ended June 30, 2016.

Mark S. Hoplamazian, president and chief executive officer of Hyatt Hotels Corporation, said, "We reported solid second quarter results while continuing to execute our long-term growth strategy. Adjusted EBITDA grew 9.7% in the quarter, excluding the impact of foreign currency translation and transactions. Our outlook for the overall business remains positive despite some near-term challenges. In line with current trends, we are revising expectations for comparable systemwide RevPAR growth to a range of approximately 2% to 3% for the year."

Second quarter 2016 financial highlights as compared to the second quarter of 2015 are as follows:

• Net income increased 67.5% to $67 million.

• Adjusted EBITDA increased 5.6% to $227 million, up 7.1% in constant currency.

• Comparable systemwide RevPAR increased 2.3%, including an increase of 4.5% at comparable owned and leased hotels.

• Comparable U.S. hotel RevPAR increased 4.2%; full service and select service hotel RevPAR increased 3.2% and 6.9%, respectively.

• Net hotel and net rooms growth was 8% and 6%, respectively.

• Comparable owned and leased hotels segment operating margins were stable at 27.6%.

Mr. Hoplamazian continued, "We continue to deliver against our goal to become the most preferred hospitality brand. In the second quarter, we gained market share systemwide, with particular strength in the Americas. Developer demand for our brands remains strong. Our executed contract base increased to approximately 61,000 rooms, and we remain on track to open more than 60 hotels this year. We also continued to make good progress with respect to our capital recycling efforts. In late June, we sold Andaz 5th Avenue and announced the acquisition of Royal Palms Resort and Spa, which will become part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt. With the underlying momentum in our business, we expect a solid finish to the year."

Second quarter 2016 segment results as compared to the second quarter of 2015 are as follows. Hyatt evaluates segment operating performance using segment revenue and segment Adjusted EBITDA.

Owned and Leased Hotels Segment

Total owned and leased hotels segment Adjusted EBITDA increased 6.4% (8.0% in constant currency) including a 47.4% increase in pro rata share of unconsolidated hospitality ventures Adjusted EBITDA. Refer to the table on page 16 of the schedules for a detailed list of portfolio changes and the year-over-year net impact to second quarter owned and leased hotels segment Adjusted EBITDA. Owned and leased hotels revenue increased 3.5% (4.7% in constant currency) and expenses increased 5.6%.

RevPAR for comparable owned and leased hotels increased 4.5%, driven by strength at comparable owned hotels in the Americas, partially offset by softer performance at comparable owned hotels in the EAME/SW Asia region. Occupancy increased 130 basis points and ADR increased 2.9%.

Comparable owned and leased hotels revenue increased 2.6%. Excluding expenses related to benefit programs funded through rabbi trusts and non-comparable hotel expenses, expenses increased 2.6%, reflecting increases in health insurance, labor costs and property taxes at certain properties. Comparable owned and leased hotels segment operating margins were stable at 27.6%. Refer to the table on page 10 of the schedules for a reconciliation of comparable owned and leased hotels expenses to owned and leased hotels expenses.

The following hotel was added to the portfolio in the second quarter:

• The Confidante, part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt (owned, 363 rooms)

The following hotel was removed from the owned and leased hotels portfolio as it was sold in the second quarter:

• Andaz 5th Avenue (184 rooms). The Company entered into a long-term management agreement with the buyer and therefore the hotel remains in the Hyatt system.

Management and Franchise Fees

Total fee revenue increased 2.7% (consistent with change in constant currency) to $115 million. Base management fees and incentive management fees were flat at $49 million and $30 million, respectively.

Other fee revenues decreased 18.2% to $9 million.

Occupancy increased 250 basis points and ADR decreased 2.3%. Revenue from management, franchise and other fees decreased 4.3%, as the benefit of comparable RevPAR gains and unit growth in the second quarter of this year was offset by non-recurring revenue in the second quarter of last year.
