IHT has initiated semiannual dividends as of July 31, 2017 of one cent each 6 months effectively doubling the prior annual dividend rate.

(InnDependent Boutique Collection), a leading provider of hospitality technologies for independent hotels, announces that its IBC Marketplace has evolved from a standalone Central Reservation System ("CRS") to an online portal for centrally managing ALL property technologies, including CRS, property-management system, marketing, loyalty program, rate shopping, revenue management and more. This customizable, enhanced functionality will equip independent hotel operators with the tools they need to manage their hotel assets, including rates and loyalty in one place, determine which channels are generating the most business and see which marketing programs are succeeding or failing and then retargeting offers for a better return on investment.

IHT expanded two credit facilities by increasing the line of credit from $500,000 to $1,000,000 for one of the facilities and extending the maturity date on both credit facilities to June 30, 2019.
