PART II — RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)


If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)




The reason described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense



The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and



The accountant’s statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.




State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.


In 2013, Summit Hotel Properties, Inc. (the “Registrant”) sold 15 hotels and one was held for sale at December 31, 2012.  In addition, the Registrant classified three hotels as held for sale at December 31, 2013.  The results of these 19 hotels are being included in discontinued operations in the Registrant’s consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2013.  The Registrant has determined that it needs to make certain corresponding adjustments to its consolidated financial statements for periods beginning on and before December 31, 2012, which were audited by the Registrant’s former auditors.  These corresponding adjustments will have no effect on the Registrant’s net income or loss or net income or loss applicable to common stockholders included in the Registrant’s s previously issued consolidated financial statements.  The Registrant’s current auditors are unable to audit such adjustments and therefore the Registrant has requested the former auditors to audit these adjustments, which will require additional time to complete in order to reissue their audit opinion.  Accordingly, the Registrant is unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 (the “Form 10-K”) by March 17, 2014 without unreasonable effort and expense.  The Registrant anticipates that the Form 10-K will be filed as soon as practicable after the date hereof, but in no event later than the fifteenth calendar day following the date on which the Form 10-K was due.
