Pebblebrook Hotel Trust Provides 2013 Outlook

Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (NYSE: PEB) (the “Company”) today provided its Outlook for 2013. The Company's Outlook for 2013, which assumes continued improvement in economic activity, positive business travel trends and other significant assumptions, is as follows:
2013 Outlook
Low     High

(in millions except per share/unit,

margin and RevPAR data)

Adjusted FFO (1) $90.0 $94.0
Adjusted FFO per diluted share (1) $1.46 $1.53

This 2013 Outlook is based on the following estimates and assumptions:

U.S. GDP Growth 1.75% 2.25%
U.S. Hotel Industry RevPAR Growth (2) 4.5% 6.5%
Pro Forma Portfolio RevPAR (2,3) $182 $186

Weighted average fully diluted shares and units 61.6 61.6

(1) See tables later in this press release for a reconciliation of net income (loss) to non-GAAP financial measures, including earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), Adjusted EBITDA, Funds from Operations ("FFO"), Adjusted FFO and Adjusted FFO per diluted share.

(2) “RevPAR” is defined as rooms revenue per available room.

(3) The Company’s estimates and assumptions for pro forma portfolio RevPAR, pro forma portfolio RevPAR growth, pro forma portfolio EBITDA, pro forma portfolio EBITDA margin and pro forma hotel EBITDA margin growth for 2013 include the hotels owned as of December 31, 2012, as well as the unidentified acquisition, as if they had been owned by the Company for the entire year of 2012, except for Hotel Zetta (formerly known as Hotel Milano), which the Company expects to include after it has owned the hotel for one full year, starting in the second quarter.

“We’re very pleased with our portfolio’s continued strong performance during the fourth quarter following the negative impact from Superstorm Sandy and the nor’easter that followed,” noted Jon Bortz, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. “We expect that 2013 will be another great year for the overall hotel industry, as hotel demand growth is expected to continue to exceed supply growth in the U.S., allowing for substantial ongoing improvement in pricing power and average daily rates. We’re forecasting U.S. industry RevPAR to increase between 4.5% and 6.5% over 2012. Our portfolio, comprised of high quality hotels located in major gateway cities, should benefit from this strong recovery in travel and continue to outperform the industry. We’re forecasting Pro Forma Portfolio RevPAR to increase 5.0% to 7.0%, even after accounting for an expected 100 basis point negative impact from our Affinia 50 renovation.”
