Lakeview Hotel Investment Corp Announces First Quarter Results

WINNIPEG, May 30, 2017 /CNW/ - Lakeview Hotel Investment Corp ("LHIC") is pleased to report its financial results for the Quarter ended March 31, 2017.  The following comments in regard to the financial results should be read in conjunction with the March 31, 2017 financial statements and Management Discussion and Analysis which are available on the SEDAR website www.sedar.com.

Operating results for Lakeview Hotel Investment Corp. were much improved in the first quarter of 2017 when compared to the first quarter results of the previous year.  While sentiment is improving, there is still an overall lack of visibility on the level of improvement going forward.  It does not appear that first quarter momentum will carry through into the second quarter.  This is in large part due to the impact of seasonal road restrictions, but also relates to some property specific demand generators in the second quarter of 2016 that are no longer present.  Visibility is expected to improve in the third quarter of 2017 which is typically the strongest quarter of the year for Lakeview Hotel Investment Corp.

Following is a comparison of the operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and the comparable period in 2016:
