Santiago Chile Accor Hotel
It was less than a month ago that AccorHotels confirmed it would buy Swiss-based Movenpick Hotels and Resorts for an estimated $582 million. French hotel companies are not finished yet, and it is not even the first time they have done so in recent years.
AccorHotels has signed an agreement with the shareholders of Chilean Atton Hoteles to acquire the company, which has its sights set on South America. Under the terms of the agreement, it will acquire 80 percent of the assets of the real estate company, with the remaining 80 percent to be acquired by the Chilean group Algeciras. AccorsHotel has a total of €67 million in cash (€89 million) available, including the management company that operates 11 Attons hotels in Chile, Peru, Colombia and Florida. In addition, in exchange for the majority of its shares in the hotel business and a 20 percent stake in Att, accorhotels will also acquire a 50 percent stake in a property and asset - owned in Argentina, Chile and Colombia and an 80-90 percent stake in an operating company with an investment of 5 million euros - on the basis of a 30-year lease.
Most of these properties have been developed organically over the last 40 years, "said Mend, while the transaction will help to strengthen the company's presence in the mid- and upper-end segment. The acquisition follows a series of deals AccorHotels has struck in recent years to expand its size and acquire some of the world's largest companies, including Marriott and Hilton. Last year, it bought Mexico's Grupo Posadas for $275 million in 2012 and integrated 26 properties owned by Brazil Hospitality Group (BHG) into its portfolio. The acquisition was part of an $840 million FRHI Hotels & Resorts deal in 2016 and the purchase of Glasgow-based ResDiary.
To capitalise on Atton's existing brand equity, most of the properties will be consolidated under the AccorHotels brand and in the medium term will be fully renamed Pullman, Novotel, MGallery and Mercure, and could be fully renamed Pullman, Novotels, MGallery and Mercure by mid-year.
