LuxUrban Hotels Announces Formation of Special Committee to Review Strategic Initiatives

June 3, 2024

LuxUrban Hotels Inc. (“LuxUrban” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: LUXH), a hospitality company which leases entire existing hotels on a long-term basis and rents rooms in its hotels to business and vacation travelers, today announced that its Board of Directors has formed a Special Committee comprised of independent directors to explore potential strategic initiatives focused on maximizing shareholder value.

The Special Committee is charged with evaluating potential strategic transactions, including, without limitation, equity and debt financings, a sale of the Company or some or all of its assets, a merger, strategic acquisitions, or other strategic initiatives and alternatives. No timetable to complete this process has been established. The Company is not currently engaged in any potential strategic transaction, and has not engaged professional advisors in connection with any such transaction or the formation or operation of the committee, at this time. Leonard Toboroff will serve as Chairman of the Special Committee.

The Company does not intend to disclose any developments with respect to the Special Committee’s activities unless and until the Company determines that further disclosure is appropriate or required by law or regulation. There can be no assurances that this process will result in the Company pursuing a transaction or completing any such transaction.

“We believe that we operate one of the most innovative models in the hospitality industry,” said Elan Blutinger, Chairman of the Board. “Our Board and management team are committed to maximizing shareholder value, and we believe that the commencement of this process to evaluate strategic opportunities fully aligns with that mandate. Leonard has spent the better part of his professional life as counsel and advisor to multiple companies structuring public and private strategic transactions across multiple industries.”

“The Special Committee will conduct this process in a manner that is consistent, thoughtful and in the best interests of our shareholders,” said Leonard Toboroff, Chairman of the Special Committee. “This is a unique company in the lodging industry and the creation of this committee will allow us to formalize and centralize any strategic opportunities we consider.”

LuxUrban Hotels Inc.

LuxUrban Hotels Inc. secures long-term operating rights for entire hotels through Master Lease Agreements (MLA) and rents out, on a short-term basis, hotel rooms to business and vacation travelers. The Company is strategically building a portfolio of hotel properties in destination cities by capitalizing on the dislocation in commercial real estate markets and the large amount of debt maturity obligations on those assets coming due with a lack of available options for owners of those assets. LuxUrban’s MLA allows owners to hold onto their assets and retain their equity value while LuxUrban operates and owns the cash flows of the operating business for the life of the MLA.
