Red Lion Hotels Concludes Previously Announced Process

Spokane, Wash., Oct. 16 // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Red Lion Hotels Corporation (NYSE: RLH) announced today that it has concluded its previously announced review of strategic alternatives. As part of the review, Red Lion entered into confidentiality agreements with several parties, including Columbia Pacific Opportunity Fund, LP, and gave the parties access to confidential company information. Red Lion received preliminary indications of interest in acquiring the company from multiple parties, but did not receive a definitive proposal from any party, including Columbia Pacific Opportunity Fund, LP, which has withdrawn its previous indication of interest in acquiring the company. Red Lion's Board of Directors believes that a significant factor in this outcome was the recent downturn in the U.S. and global economies and credit markets.
