The hospitality giant felt the impact of the pandemic as the latest financial report shows.

Earlier today, Marriott International Inc released the financial report for the first quarter of 2020. The profit was below the expectations, but it surprised on revenue. The EPS dropped by 9 cents to $1.09, with a net income of $31 million from $375 million the same time last year. The adjusted EPS was of 26 cents, also below analysts' expectation of 87 cents.

Although it dropped by 7%, the revenue was above the $4.14 billion from consensuses, at $4.68 billion. The revenue per available room (RevPAR) grew in the first two months of the year 3.2%, but overall it fell 22.5%. In April, RevPAR dropped by 90%, but it managed to recover 20% in the past two weeks as the demand increased in North America. Also, in April, the number of bookings increased in China as the economy slowly reopened.

In today’s premarket, the stock price fell 1.75. The stock shed 42.4% since the beginning of the year until now. USA500 lost 9.3%.
