上海2021年11月8日 /美通社/ -- 凯悦酒店集团宣布,已完成对Apple Leisure Group(以下简称:ALG)的收购。ALG是行业领先的休闲旅游和度假村品牌管理公司,收购前为KKR和KSL Capital Partners, LLC的附属公司所有。

ALG旗下AMR Collection品牌组合在10个国家和地区经营着约100家酒店和度假村,此外在美洲和欧洲还有24家酒店和度假村正在筹备中。随着ALG的加入,凯悦全球度假村布局将扩大一倍。借此,目前凯悦拥有全球规模最大的全包式奢华度假村品牌组合之一,并将业务足迹拓展到阿卡普尔科、库拉索岛、加那利群岛、梅诺卡岛和圣马丁岛等全新目的地。此次收购将使凯悦的品牌足迹扩展到欧洲的11个新市场,从而将集团在欧洲的品牌布局扩大了60%。这大大加强了凯悦在欧洲这个休闲旅游关键市场的增长潜力。

凯悦正在制定会员计划整合方案,力图为凯悦天地忠诚顾客计划和ALG 旗下Unlimited Vacation Club的会员带来更多附加价值和独一无二的会员礼遇。凯悦计划在2022年将AMR Collection纳入凯悦天地忠诚客户计划,让凯悦天地会员能够在100多家AMR Collection酒店和度假村获取和兑换凯悦天地积分。

“凯悦收购ALG是我们60余年品牌发展史上的一个里程碑,这将进一步巩固凯悦的酒店行业领先地位。”凯悦总裁兼首席执行官马赫澜表示,“凯悦和ALG拥有高度互补的品牌组合,并共同致力于打造关爱为本的员工和客户体验。我们在2013年初涉高速增长的全包式奢华旅游市场,并准确捕捉到规模庞大且不断增长的休闲旅游需求,将我们卓越的酒店服务带给更多宾客。我们热烈欢迎ALG团队加入凯悦大家庭,期待与ALG携手迈上业务增长的新台阶,为我们的股东、业主、客户、宾客、会员和员工等所有利益相关方创造更多价值。”

“ALG的历史正式翻开崭新的一页。此前,我们通过ALG奢华旅游品牌和服务建立了强大的客户忠诚度和卓著的声誉,加入凯悦之后,我们将继续巩固这两大优势。”Apple Leisure Group首席执行官Alejandro Reynal表示,“很高兴能够加入凯悦这个全球著名的酒店集团,我们将迎来更多业务拓展的机遇,为此我们感到振奋鼓舞,我们坚信双方能共铸更多发展里程碑。有了凯悦专业能力的加持,我们期待ALG旗下酒店迎来更多宾客的光临,并带给他们梦寐以求的完美假期和毕生难忘的美好回忆,与此同时,我们的发展步伐也必将随之加快。”

ALG的业务将继续由现任ALG首席执行官Alejandro Reynal和现任ALG领导团队执掌。Reynal先生已加入凯悦高层领导团队,并直接汇报给凯悦首席执行官马赫澜。

2021年9月,凯悦履行了2019年宣布的“出售15亿美元酒店地产”承诺,至此,凯悦自2017年公布资产出售战略以来实现的收益总额超过30亿美元,超过合并税息折旧及摊销前利润(EBITDA)的17倍。凯悦也再次重申了到2024年底将再通过出售酒店房地产获得20亿美元收益的承诺。
