LONDON, July 2, 2018

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has confirmed that its acquisition of a 51 per cent stake in Regent Hotels & Resorts has now been completed.

The majority stake was acquired for a total of $39 million, payable in three tranches of $13 million. The first tranch has already been paid, with the second amount due in 2021 and the third in 2024.

IHG will have the right to acquire the remaining 49 per cent interest in a phased manner from 2026.

As detailed in the announcement published on March 14, IHG will bring Regent into its brand portfolio at the top end of the luxury segment and will accelerate its growth globally, supported by IHG’s powerful enterprise. IHG’s intention is to grow the brand from six hotels today to over 40 hotels in key global gateway city and resort locations over the long term.

IHG is already a global leader in the luxury segment with the world’s largest luxury brand, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts. The acquisition of Regent is in line with IHG’s focus on expanding its footprint in the fast-growing $60 billion luxury segment. - TradeArabia News Service
