Marriott's Q1 results severely impacted by coronavirus



Marriott International has reported operating income of $114 million for the first quarter of 2020, down from $510 million in the same period last year.




Reported net income totalled $31 million in the 2020 first quarter, compared to 2019 first quarter reported net income of $375 million.


Reported diluted earnings per share (EPS) totalled $0.09 in the quarter, compared to reported diluted EPS of $1.09 in the year-ago quarter.


Marriott said worldwide RevPAR [revenue per available room] began the year with a strong 4.6 percent growth rate for January, excluding Greater China, where Covid-19 was already impacting results, but has declined by 90 per cent.


Currently, roughly a quarter of Marriott's worldwide hotels are closed.


Arne M Sorenson, president and chief executive officer of Marriott International, said, "In the last few months we have seen the impact of Covid-19 spread throughout our business in an unprecedented way.


"These are extremely challenging times, but I am confident that we will be able to successfully navigate through them."
