Slim Acquires U.S. Hotel as Real Estate Spinoff Nears

Grupo Carso SAB, the holding company controlled by billionaire Carlos Slim, added a Kissimmee, Florida, property to its Mexican hotel chain as it prepares for a spinoff of its real estate unit.

Carso acquired the hotel, which operates under the Ramada brand, in September, Mexico City-based Carso said today in a filing to Mexico’s banking and securities commission. Financial terms weren’t disclosed. The property is part of Carso’s Ostar hotel group, which includes five Mexican hotels.
