RLJ Lodging Trust Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Results

Financial and Operating Results

This press release presents 2011 data that combines the financial and operating results of the Company’s predecessor entities prior to the consummation of the Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”) on May 16, 2011, and the results of the Company post-IPO. Performance metrics of Occupancy, Average Daily Rate (“ADR”), Revenue Per Available Room (“RevPAR”), Hotel EBITDA, and Hotel EBITDA Margin are pro forma. The prefix “pro forma,” as defined by the Company, denotes operating results which include results for periods prior to its ownership. Pro forma RevPAR and Pro forma Hotel EBITDA Margin are reported on a comparable basis and therefore exclude non-comparable hotels that were not open for operation or closed for renovations for comparable periods. An explanation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel EBITDA, FFO, and Adjusted FFO, as well as reconciliations of those measures to net income or loss, if applicable, is included at the end of this release.

Pro forma RevPAR for the three months ended December 31, 2012, increased 10.2% over the comparable period in 2011, driven by a Pro forma ADR increase of 6.6% and a Pro forma Occupancy increase of 3.4%. Among the Company’s top six markets, the best performers in the quarter were Austin and New York City which experienced RevPAR growth of 30.0% and 10.2%, respectively. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, Pro forma RevPAR increased 7.4% over the comparable period in 2011, driven by a Pro forma ADR increase of 5.8% and a Pro forma Occupancy increase of 1.5%. Adjusting for total disruption caused by renovations, the Company estimates that Pro forma RevPAR growth would have increased by an additional 152 basis points to 8.9%.

Pro forma Hotel EBITDA Margin for the three months ended December 31, 2012, increased 162 basis points over the comparable period in 2011 to 34.6%. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, Pro forma Hotel EBITDA Margin increased 78 basis points over the comparable period in 2011 to 33.9%. Adjusting for total disruption caused by renovations, the Company estimates that Pro forma Hotel EBITDA Margin would have increased by an additional 40 basis points to 34.3%.

Pro forma Consolidated Hotel EBITDA includes the results of non-comparable hotels. For the three months ended December 31, 2012, Pro forma Consolidated Hotel EBITDA increased $9.6 million to $76.0 million, representing a 14.4% increase over the comparable period in 2011. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, Pro forma Consolidated Hotel EBITDA increased $28.7 million to $293.7 million, representing a 10.8% increase over the comparable period in 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2012, increased $13.7 million to $70.7 million, representing a 24.1% increase over the comparable period in 2011. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, Adjusted EBITDA increased $33.4 million to $267.7 million, representing a 14.2% increase over the comparable period in 2011.

Adjusted FFO for the three months ended December 31, 2012, increased $13.4 million to $50.7 million, representing a 35.9% increase over the comparable period in 2011. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, Adjusted FFO increased $43.5 million to $185.6 million, representing a 30.6% increase over the comparable period in 2011. Adjusted FFO per diluted share and unit for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, was $0.48 and $1.74, respectively, based on the Company’s diluted weighted-average shares and units outstanding of 106.8 million and 106.6 million for each period, respectively.

Non-recurring expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2012, totaled $2.9 million and were primarily related to accelerated amortization of deferred financing fees and prepayment penalties associated with the extinguishment of $331.0 million of debt. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, non-recurring expenses totaled $5.4 million and were primarily related to debt related fees, impairment, and a non-cash loss on disposal of furniture, fixtures, and equipment associated with assets under renovation.

These expenses are included in net income, EBITDA and FFO, but have been excluded from Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO, as applicable. A complete listing is provided in the Non-GAAP reconciliation tables.
