Reconciliation of Hotel Net Income to Hotel EBITDA and Hotel Net Operating Income
2013 12-Month Forecast
(Unaudited, in millions)
Low High
Hotel net income $5.2 to $5.7
Depreciation and amortization (1) 3.3 3.3
Hotel EBITDA (2) $8.5   $9.0  
Capital reserve (1.0 ) (1.0 )
Hotel Net Operating Income (2) $7.5   $8.0

(2) Hotel EBITDA and Hotel Net Operating Income are both before an expected $1.0 million renovation impact.

This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined under Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Rules. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the hotel’s results of operations determined in accordance with GAAP.

The Company has presented forecasted hotel EBITDA and forecasted hotel net operating income after capital reserves, because it believes these measures provide investors and analysts with an understanding of the hotel-level operating performance. These non-GAAP measures do not represent amounts available for management’s discretionary use, because of needed capital replacement or expansion, debt service obligations or other commitments and uncertainties, nor are they indicative of funds available to fund the Company’s cash needs, including its ability to make distributions.

The Company’s presentation of the hotel’s forecasted EBITDA and forecasted net operating income after capital reserves should not be considered as an alternative to net income (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of the hotel’s financial performance. The table above is a reconciliation of the hotel’s forecasted EBITDA and net operating income after capital reserves calculations to net income in accordance with GAAP.
