Although Consolidated EBITDA grew by 85.0% over last year, the Company closes the second half of 2012 with a net loss of R$5.0 million, versus a net income R$0.7 million in 2Q11, chiefly driven by higher depreciation of R$2.2 million and higher negative balance of financial result in the amount of R$8.0 million, related to the funding to finance continued structural improvements in recently acquired hotels, thus, increasing the quality of services rendered in our hotels.
