Hersha Hospitality Seeks Acquisitions

Hersha Hospitality Trust (NYSE:HT) is looking for acquisition opportunities. Jay Shah, Chief Executive Officer of Hersha Hospitality said, “The dividend is always going to be a board decision, and we will continue to look at whether or not the dividend warrants being increased or not. I think, as we've mentioned in the most recent press release and on our comments today, I think we are currently with additional cash that we have available, we are going to continue to look for opportunities that are unique from an acquisition standpoint. And if we don’t find those I think right now our stock is looking very attractive to us. We feel that it is irrationally priced, and it might be best use of our cash today to be buying back stock.”
