7 Days Group Holdings Limited[1] (NYSE: SVN), operating as 7 Days Inn (Chinese: 7天酒店; pinyin: Qītiān Jiǔdiàn; Jyutping: Cat1 tin1 zau2 dim3), is a Chinese budget hotel chain. It was established in 2005.[2] It has its headquarters in the Creative Industry Zone[note 1] in Haizhu District, Guangzhou.[3][4]

History

7 Days Inn was established in 2005. Guangzhou was the location of the company's founding.[5]

In 2006, Warburg Pincus invested US$10 million. In 2007, Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank, and Warburg Pincus further invested a combined total of US$95 million.[2] In 2008, Actis Capital led a US$65 million investment in 7 Days Inn, in which Warburg Pincus again participated.[6] Despite losses amounting to ¥209.9 million (US$30.8 million) in 2008 and ¥9.3 million (US$1.4 million) in the first three quarters of 2009, it listed on the New York Stock Exchange in September 2009, issuing 10.1 million American Depositary Shares (representing 20.6% of the company) at US$11/share, raising a total of $111.1 million. CEO Zhang retained a 13.4% stake. 7 Days Inns' failure to turn a profit up to that point meant they were unable to make an offering of A shares in China.[7]

In 2013 Plateno Hotels Group bought 7 Days Inn for US$688 million, took the company private, and made it into Plateno's wholly owned subsidiary; this meant 7 Days Inn was no longer listed on the New York Stock Exchange.[5]

In 2015 Jinjiang Hotels bought 81% of Keystone Lodging, now the parent company of 7 Days Inn, for 8.3 billion renminbi (US$1.3 billion),[8] which meant it now controlled 7 Days Inn.[9]
