Recent Developments

Capital Markets

On October 3, 2012, the Company closed on its initial follow on public offering of 12,000,000 shares of its common stock, par value $0.01 per share, an increase of 20.0 percent over the previously announced offering size of 10,000,000 shares, at a price of $8.15 per share. The underwriters of the Company’s offering fully exercised their option to purchase an additional 1,800,000 shares. The total number of shares sold, including the option shares, was 13,800,000. Total net proceeds of approximately $107.0 million were realized after deducting the underwriting discount and other estimated offering expenses.

On November 6, 2012, the Company increased the commitment on its revolving credit facility to $150 million. The increased revolving credit facility increases the capital the Company has available for future acquisitions and capital investments. The actual amount of borrowing capacity available under the facility depends on the value of the properties comprising the borrowing base that secure the credit facility.

Acquisitions

The Company continues to actively acquire hotels, having closed the acquisition of nine hotels, totaling 1,141 rooms, with an average purchase price per key of $82,901 since September 30, 2012.

The hotels purchased include:
               
Hotel       Location     Rooms
Hyatt Place-Arlington       Dallas (Arlington), TX     127
Hyatt Place-Park Meadows Denver (Lone Tree), CO 127
Hyatt Place-Denver Tech Center Denver (Englewood), CO 126
Hyatt House-Denver Tech Center Denver (Englewood), CO 135
Hyatt Place-Owings Mills Baltimore (Owings Mills), MD 123
Hyatt Place-Lombard Chicago (Lombard), IL 151
Hyatt Place-Phoenix Phoenix, AZ 127
Hyatt Place-Scottsdale Scottsdale, AZ 127
Hilton Garden Inn - Fort Worth       Fort Worth, TX     98
        Total     1,141
 

During 2012, the Company has acquired 16 hotels totaling 2,477 rooms, an increase of 22.3 percent over the number of rooms at December 31, 2011. As of November 6, 2012, the Company owns 82 hotels totaling 8,674 rooms.

Other

On October 30, 2012, we entered into an agreement with an affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corporation to fund $20 million in the form of a first lien mortgage loan on a hotel property in downtown Minneapolis, MN. The $20 million represents a portion of the total acquisition and renovation costs expected to be incurred to convert the property to a Hyatt Place hotel. Subject to certain conditions, including the successful conversion of the property estimated to be completed in the summer of 2013, we plan to purchase the property and enter into a management agreement with a Hyatt affiliate.

“We had exceptional performance in the third quarter, exceeding expectations,” said Dan Hansen, president and CEO. “Our RevPAR and EBITDA growth were industry leading. We believe our performance combined with our recent acquisition of nine hotels, our successful follow on common stock offering, and our robust pipeline for future acquisitions position us to provide solid shareholder returns.”

Capital Investments The Company deployed $5.3 million in capital for renovations during the third quarter. The major improvements and capital invested during the third quarter included: Baton Rouge, LA Springhill Suites by Marriott - $0.7 million; Nashville, TN Springhill Suites by Marriott - $0.7 million; Jackson (Ridgeland), MS Homewood Suites - $0.6 million; Baton Rouge, LA Fairfield Inn by Marriott - $0.5 million; Fort Smith, AR Hampton Inn - $0.5 million; El Paso, TX Courtyard by Marriott - $0.4 million; El Paso, TX Hampton Inn & Suites - $0.4 million. Varying in scope, the major improvements listed above include renovation to guestrooms, common areas, and exteriors of the hotels. The Company anticipates deploying up to $11.0 million on renovations and other non-recurring capital expenditures in the fourth quarter.

Dispositions The Company continued its strategy of recycling capital by selling hotels or land that it no longer considers relevant to its strategy of owning hotels with best brands in best markets. In August 2012, the Company sold the 52 room AmericInn Hotel & Suites in Missoula, MT for approximately $1.9 million.

Year-to-Date Highlights For the nine-months ended September 30, 2012, pro forma RevPAR increased 9.9 percent to $68.28 as a result of pro forma ADR growth of 3.5 percent to $96.22 and a 6.2 percent increase in pro forma occupancy to 71.0 percent. RevPAR improvement was the result of the positive effect of recent renovations, the recent rebranding of 10 hotels, and general economic improvement in many of the Company’s markets. Pro forma Hotel EBITDA year to date was $47.6 million, a 17.6 percent increase over the comparable period in 2011. Pro forma Hotel EBITDA margin was 32.9 percent for the period, a 199 basis points margin expansion over the same period in 2011. The Company’s pro forma Hotel EBITDA margin expansion was 243 basis points after adjusting for the $0.6 million one-time hotel management fee concessions agreed to by Interstate Hotels and Resorts during second quarter 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA was $40.7 million for the first nine-months of 2012, a 26.7 percent increase over the same period in 2011.

Balance Sheet As of September 30, 2012, the Company had total outstanding debt of $312.3 million, including $69.9 million outstanding on its senior secured credit facility, and the Company had $10.3 million of cash and cash equivalents. As of November 6, 2012, the Company had $69.4 million outstanding on its senior secured credit facility with additional borrowing capacity of $43.0 million on its credit facility and 15 unencumbered hotels available to further expand capacity on its credit facility. The Company’s weighted average interest rate on its secured debt was 5.02% as of November 6, 2012.

2012 Outlook The Company is providing fourth quarter guidance and increasing its 2012 full year outlook to reflect performance in the third quarter and to include its recent acquisitions including the 96 room Residence Inn by Marriott, Dallas (Arlington), TX, 127 room Hyatt Place, Dallas (Arlington), TX, 127 room Hyatt Place-Park Meadows, Denver (Lone Tree), CO, 126 room Hyatt Place-Denver Tech Center, Denver (Englewood), CO, 135 room Hyatt House-Denver Tech Center, Denver (Englewood), CO, 123 room Hyatt Place-Owings Mills, Baltimore (Owings Mills), MD, 151 room Hyatt Place-Lombard, Chicago (Lombard), IL, 127 room Hyatt Place-Phoenix, Phoenix, AZ, 127 room Hyatt Place-Scottsdale, Scottsdale, AZ and 98 room Hilton Garden Inn, Fort Worth, TX and the issuance of 13,800,000 additional common shares described above. The Company’s outlook is based on 82 current hotels owned and assumes no additional hotels acquired or sold for the remainder of 2012 and no additional issuances of equity securities.

Forward-looking statements are based on certain assumptions and can include future expectations, future plans and strategies, financial and operating projections or other forward-looking information. Examples of forward-looking statements include the following: projections of the Company’s revenues and expenses, capital expenditures or other financial items; descriptions of the Company’s plans or objectives for future operations, acquisitions or services; forecasts of the Company’s future economic performance and potential increases in average daily rate, occupancy, RevPAR, room supply and demand, funds from operations and adjusted funds from operations; US GDP growth and descriptions of assumptions underlying or relating to any of the foregoing expectations regarding the timing of their occurrence. These forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties, not all of which are known to the Company and many of which are beyond the Company’s control, which could cause actual results to differ materially from such statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the state of the U.S. economy, supply and demand in the hotel industry and other factors as are described in greater detail in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including, without limitation, the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

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 noncontrolling 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. 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 the 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, property acquisitions, debt service obligations 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, we believe 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.
