  Other Events.
On December 15, 2014, we caused one of our indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries (the “purchasing subsidiary”), to enter into a series of purchase contracts for the potential purchase of three hotels. The table below describes these hotels:

San Juan Capistrano, California

    130     $ 29,200,000

            424     $ 103,000,000  
The purchase contract for the San Juan Capistrano, California hotel also contemplates that our purchasing subsidiary would assume an existing loan secured by the property and a ground lease. The current outstanding principal is approximately $16.7 million, the interest rate is 4.149% and the loan matures in June 2020.  Monthly payments of principal and interest are due on an amortized basis.
During the review period, which ends on January 29, 2015, our purchasing subsidiary will have the opportunity to evaluate the legal, title, survey, construction, physical condition, structural, mechanical, environmental, economic, permit status, franchise status, financial and other documents and information related to the hotels. Our purchasing subsidiary may terminate a purchase contract at any time during the review period for any reason. Our purchasing subsidiary may become aware of facts or conditions pertaining to the hotels as a result of its review that will cause us to terminate an agreement to purchase a hotel.
Certain closing conditions must be met before or at the closing, and are not currently satisfied. They include, but are not limited to, the following: the seller having performed and complied in all material respects with the covenants under the purchase contracts; all third party consents having been obtained; the existing management and franchise agreements shall have been terminated or assigned to one of our subsidiaries by the seller or as applicable new management and franchise agreements shall have been executed by one of our subsidiaries. If any of the closing conditions under the purchase contracts are not satisfied by the seller, our purchasing subsidiary may terminate the purchase contracts without penalty.
Accordingly, as of the date of this report and until the closing of the purchase of the hotels, there can be no assurance that our purchasing subsidiary will acquire the hotels.
All brand and trade names, logos or trademarks contained, or referred to, in this Form 8-K are the properties of their respective owners.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
