Choice Hotels International Inc. /zigman2/quotes/202943946/composite CHH +1.77% said late Tuesday it was pulling its first quarter and full-year outlook because of the COVID-19 coronavirus impact. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had forecast earnings of 81 cents on revenue of $231.8 million for the first quarter, and $4.18 a share on revenue of $1.17 billion for the year. Back in mid-February, Choice Hotels had forecast adjusted earnings of 80 cents to 84 cents a share for the first quarter, and $4.22 to $4.33 a share for the year. "We are not able to precisely quantify the impact on our projected results at this time, given the uncertainty surrounding the impact of COVID-19 on the global hospitality industry - and specifically on the U.S. travel market, where the majority of our franchised hotels are located - as well as the rapidly changing circumstances impacting our hospitality franchising business, directly and indirectly," said Patrick Pacious, Choice Hotels president and chief executive, in a statement. "We will continue to closely monitor the situation and expect to provide an update during our first-quarter earnings call based on the best information then available."
