(2) For purposes of this press release, pro forma RevPAR, pro forma RevPAR growth, pro forma Hotel EBITDA, pro forma Hotel EBITDA margin and pro forma Hotel EBITDA margin growth includes operating results for the Company’s 72 hotels owned as of June 30, 2012, as if such hotels had been owned since January 1, 2011 and exclude 3 hotels sold, including Twin Falls, ID AmericInn & Suites, Twin Falls, ID Hampton Inn, and Twin Falls, ID Holiday Inn Express & Suites, and the Missoula, MT AmericInn Hotel & Suites, which is held for sale as of June 30, 2012. As a result, these pro forma operating measures include operating results for certain hotels for periods prior to the Company’s ownership.
 

“We continue to be pleased with the performance of our company,” said Dan Hansen, president and CEO. “Very solid RevPAR growth for the quarter was the result of several factors, including steadily improving demand throughout many of our markets, continued muted hotel supply growth and solid performance by our hotels we rebranded during 2011. We were also successful in bringing increased revenue to the bottom line. Adjusted EBITDA growth of 35.6 percent and pro forma Hotel EBITDA margin expansion of 264 basis points demonstrates focused efforts by both our hotel management partners and our company.”

Capital Investments The Company deployed $4.4 million in capital for renovations during the quarter, a significantly lesser amount than in the previous two quarters. The Company generally tends to undertake hotel work and expenditure during the seasonally slow periods for its hotels. Major improvements and capital invested during the second quarter includes: Fort Worth, TX Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott - $1.1 million; Fort Wayne, IN Hampton Inn - $0.7 million; Denver, CO Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott - $0.4 million; Provo, UT Hampton Inn - $0.4 million; Atlanta (Duluth), GA Hilton Garden Inn - $0.4 million. Varying in scope, the major improvements listed above include renovation to guestrooms, common areas, and exteriors of the hotels.

Capital Structure
  • On April 4, 2012, the Company refinanced two loans with General Electric Capital Corporation formerly financed with National Western Life Insurance Company; mortgage loans on the Scottsdale, AZ Courtyard by Marriott and the Scottsdale, AZ Springhill Suites by Marriott with principal loan balances of $9.8 and $5.3 million respectively. Both new loans bear a fixed interest rate of 6.03% and have a maturity date of May 1, 2017. The transaction resulted in an interest rate reduction of 197 basis points as compared to the previous loan’s interest rate and $1.5 million of net proceeds from the refinancing after repaying the two previous loans including a prepayment penalty of $0.5 million.
  • On May 16, 2012, the Company entered into an amendment to its $125.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility. The amendment includes the following:
    • Reduction in LIBOR spread of 75 basis points and elimination of the LIBOR floor of 50 basis points.
    • The option for increased leverage on borrowing base assets from 55% to 60% of appraised value.
    • Extended maturity date from April 29, 2014 to May 16, 2015.
    • The maximum leverage ratio covenant and fixed charge coverage ratio covenant were adjusted to provide flexibility on acquisitions in the near term.
    • The unused fee was reduced by 12.5 basis points.
  • On June 24, 2012, the Company refinanced a loan with Chambers Bank with a principal balance of $1.5 million, a fixed interest rate of 6.50%, and maturity date of June 24, 2014.
  • On June 29, 2012, the Company refinanced a loan with Bank of the Ozarks with a new principal balance of $8.9 million which resulted in $2.5 million of net proceeds after repaying the previous loan. In addition, the revised maturity date on the loan is July 10, 2017 and the loan has a 25 year amortization. Lastly, the interest rate was fixed at 5.75% for years 1-3 and will reset annually at LIBOR plus 375 basis points with a floor of 5.50% in years 4-5.

Dispositions: On May 16, 2012, the Company sold for an aggregate of $16.5 million the following three hotels all located in Twin Falls, ID.
  • 111 room AmericInn Hotel and Suites
  • 91 room Holiday Inn Express & Suites
  • 75 room Hampton Inn

On May 30, 2012, the Company sold a parcel of land in Twin Falls, ID for $0.3 million.On June 28, 2012, the Company sold a parcel of land in Boise, ID for $1.4 million.

Year-to-Date Highlights For the six-months ended June 30, 2012, pro forma RevPAR increased 9.5 percent to $66.21 as a result of ADR growth of 2.9 percent to $95.48 and a 6.4 percent increase in occupancy to 69.3 percent. RevPAR improvement was the result of the recent rebranding of 10 hotels, positive effect of recent renovations to an additional 10 hotels and general economic improvement in some of the Company’s markets. Adjusted EBITDA was $25.4 million for the first six-month period of 2012, a 27.2 percent increase over the same period in 2011.

Subsequent Events On July 2, 2012, the Company purchased the 96 room Residence Inn by Marriott in Dallas (Arlington), TX. Including purchase price and anticipated improvements the Company acquired the hotel for $15.5 million. This is the second hotel acquired by the Company in the Dallas, TX sub-market of Arlington. Since its IPO in February, 2011, the Company has acquired 12 additional hotels, adding 1,336 additional guestrooms to its portfolio.

On July 16, 2012, the Company completed the conversion of its previously branded Comfort Suites in Fort Worth, TX into a 70 room Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott. This conversion completes the rebranding of all eleven of the Company’s former Choice Hotels International branded hotels.

On August 3, 2012, the Company expanded its capacity under its $125 million Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility to $112.0 million by pledging three additional hotels under the borrowing base. The additional collateral pledged includes: 1) 96 room Residence Inn – Dallas (Arlington), TX, 2) 103 room Courtyard by Marriott – Dallas (Arlington), TX, and 3) 90 room Courtyard by Marriott – El Paso, TX. Following the increased availability under its credit facility the Company continues to have seven unencumbered hotels.

“We have been very active in executing on our strategy of deploying capital in the top fifty U.S. markets,” noted Dan Hansen. “In addition to acquiring the best brands in markets that align with our growth strategy, we have been successful in selling hotels and land parcels in markets that no longer meet our investment criteria.”

Balance sheet As of June 30, 2012, the Company had total outstanding debt of $298.4 million, including $54.4 million outstanding on its senior secured credit facility. As of August 9, 2012, the Company had additional borrowing capacity of $43.8 million on its credit facility. In addition, the Company had $11.6 million of cash and cash equivalents. As of quarter end, the Company’s weighted average interest rate was 5.02%.

2012 Outlook The Company is updating its 2012 outlook to include its recent acquisition of the 96 room Residence Inn – Dallas (Arlington), TX, the 103 room Courtyard by Marriott – Dallas (Arlington), TX, the 112 room Hilton Garden Inn – Nashville (Smyrna), TN and the 83 room Hampton Inn & Suites – Nashville (Smyrna), TN and the recent disposition of three hotels in Twin Falls, ID, including the 111 room AmericInn Hotel and Suites, 91 room Holiday Inn Express and the 75 room Hampton Inn.

The following condensed consolidated balance sheets and statements of operations are those of Summit Hotel OP, LP (the Operating Partnership), Summit Hotel Properties, Inc’s. (the REIT’s) consolidated operating partnership. Such financial results for the periods presented are identical to those of the REIT; however, we believe the reconciliation of FFO, AFFO, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) presented in the Operating Partnership’s statement of operations is more beneficial, as it eliminates the presentation of non-controlling interests represented by the equity interests held by limited partners of the Operating Partnership, other than the REIT. In addition, FFO and AFFO results on a total per common unit basis provides for a more consistent period over period presentation now and in future periods.

The Company undertakes no duty to update the statements in this release to conform the statements to actual results or changes in the Company’s expectations.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

FFO and Adjusted FFO (“AFFO”)

As defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, funds from operations, or FFO, represents net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus depreciation and amortization. We present FFO because we consider it an important supplemental measure of our operational performance and believe it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting their results. FFO is intended to exclude GAAP historical cost depreciation and amortization, which assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes ratably over time. Historically, however, real estate values have risen or fallen with market conditions. Because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization unique to real estate, gains and losses from property dispositions and impairment losses, it provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, reflects the effect to operations from trends in occupancy, room rates, operating costs, development activities and interest costs, providing perspective not immediately apparent from net income. Our computation of FFO may differ from the methodology for calculating FFO utilized by other equity REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs because the amount of depreciation and amortization we add back to net income or loss includes amortization of deferred financing costs and amortization of franchise royalty fees. Further, FFO does not represent amounts available for management’s discretionary use because of needed capital replacement or expansion, debt service obligations, or other commitments and uncertainties. FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends or make distributions. We further adjust FFO for certain additional items that are not included in NAREIT’s definition of FFO, such as hotel transaction and pursuit costs, equity based compensation, loan transaction costs, prepayment penalties and certain other nonrecurring expenses, which we refer to as AFFO. We believe that AFFO provides investors with another financial measure that may facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs. We caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with our definitions of FFO and AFFO may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies, since not all companies calculate this non-GAAP measure in the same manner. FFO and AFFO should not be considered as an alternative measure of our net income (loss) or operating performance. FFO and AFFO may include funds that may not be available for our discretionary use due to functional requirements to conserve funds for capital expenditures and property acquisitions and other commitments and uncertainties. Although we believe that FFO and AFFO can enhance your understanding of our financial condition and results of operations, this non-GAAP financial measure is not necessarily a better indicator of any trend as compared to a comparable GAAP measure such as net income (loss). Above we have included a quantitative reconciliation of FFO and AFFO to the most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, which is net income (loss). Dollar amounts in such reconciliation are in thousands.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, and Hotel EBITDA

EBITDA represents net income or loss, excluding: (i) interest, (ii) income tax expense and (iii) depreciation and amortization. We believe EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance because it provides investors with an indication of our ability to incur and service debt, to satisfy general operating expenses, to make capital expenditures and to fund other cash needs or reinvest cash into our business. We also believe it helps investors meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the effect of our asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from our operating results. Our management also uses EBITDA as one measure in determining the value of acquisitions and dispositions. We further adjust EBITDA by adding back hotel transaction and pursuit costs, equity based compensation, impairment losses, and certain other nonrecurring expenses. We believe that adjusted EBITDA provides investors with another financial measure that may facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs.

With respect to hotel EBITDA, the Company believes that excluding the effect of corporate-level expenses, non-cash items, and the portion of these items related to discontinued operations, provides a more complete understanding of the operating results over which individual hotels and operators have direct control. We believe the property-level results provide investors with supplemental information on the ongoing operational performance of our hotels and effectiveness of the third-party management companies operating our business on a property-level basis.

We caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with our definitions of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and hotel EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies, since not all companies calculate this non-GAAP measure in the same manner. EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and hotel EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative measure of our net income (loss) or operating performance. EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and hotel EBITDA may include funds that may not be available for our discretionary use due to functional requirements to conserve funds for capital expenditures and property acquisitions and other commitments and uncertainties. Although we believe that EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and hotel EBITDA can enhance your understanding of our financial condition and results of operations, this non-GAAP financial measure is not necessarily a better indicator of any trend as compared to a comparable GAAP measure such as net income (loss). Above we include a quantitative reconciliation of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and hotel EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, which is net income (loss). Dollar amounts in such reconciliation are in thousands.
