Marriott International Mulls Acquisition

Marriott International, Inc. (NasdaqGS:MAR) is seeking acquisitions. Arne Sorenson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Marriott International, said in Marriott International earnings call on being asked about acquisition, “And I think what we've found is acquisitions that seem to be priced in a way that allows us to get to creating economic value and earnings accretion fairly quickly, and priced well below our Company valuation given to us by market. So you see that accretion quite quickly. And in every instance we found deals that give us a new platform for growth. That's the real silver lining here. We are not going out simply to acquire additional rooms to drive our rooms count; but we are really going out to try and either develop brands internally, which is cheaper in some respects but harder in some respects, because you start at zero, obviously, in terms of current distribution. Or acquire.”
