Moody's Investors Service assigned a first-time B2 corporate family rating to Aimbridge Hospitality Holdings LLC.
The outlook is stable.
A subsidiary of Aimbridge Acquisition Co. Inc., the private company is a third-party hotel operator that manages more than 800 properties with roughly 100,000 rooms in 44 U.S. states as well as Washington, D.C.; Canada; and the Caribbean.
Moody's noted the company's geographic diversification, as well as diverse brands and hotels, along with its strong free cash flow due to its minimal capital expenditure requirements.
