FelCor Reports Second Quarter Results

FelCor Lodging Trust Incorporated (NYSE: FCH) today reported operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Highlights:
  • Adjusted FFO per share improved to $0.21.
  • Total revenue for comparable hotels (same-store hotels excluding eight recently rebranded Wyndham hotels) increased 6.3%.
  • RevPAR for comparable hotels increased 5.7%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $64.6 million.
  • Net loss per share was $0.23.
  • Sold two hotels since the first quarter.
  • Entered into contracts to sell three hotels (one with a non-refundable deposit) and are negotiating to sell two others.

Commenting on operating results, Richard A. Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer of FelCor, said, “Our high quality, diverse portfolio produced strong results during the second quarter, building on our momentum for the year. As the U.S. economy continues to improve, and demand for hotel rooms outpaces new supply, our industry should experience solid growth. Our portfolio is well-positioned to take advantage of this trend and outperformed the industry in the second quarter, as RevPAR at our comparable hotels increased 5.7%. Furthermore, FelCor is the only hotel REIT which has outperformed the upper-upscale segment over the past five years.”

Mr. Smith added, “We continue to make substantial progress transforming FelCor and repositioning the company, to provide sustainable and growing stockholder value. We have sold 21 hotels and are currently marketing nine, three of which are under contract and two of which have contracts under negotiations. We continue to strengthen our balance sheet through asset sales and EBITDA growth. As a result, we have created greater financial flexibility, which will continue to improve as our leverage decreases.”

Summary of Second Quarter Hotel Results:
  Second Quarter
2013     2012     Change
Comparable hotels (55)    
RevPAR $ 116.12 $ 109.88 5.7 %
Total hotel revenue, in millions $ 219.1 $ 206.1 6.3 %
Hotel EBITDA, in millions $ 61.7 $ 57.0 8.3 %
Hotel EBITDA margin 28.2 % 27.6 % 52 bps
 
Wyndham Hotels (8)
RevPAR $ 105.95 $ 127.67 (17.0 )%
Total hotel revenue, in millions $ 28.9 $ 34.0 (14.9 )%
Hotel EBITDA, in millions $ 11.2 $ 12.8 (12.2 )%
Hotel EBITDA margin 38.7 % 37.5 % 128 bps
 
Same-store hotels (63)
RevPAR $ 114.72 $ 112.34 2.1 %
Total hotel revenue, in millions $ 248.0 $ 240.1 3.3 %
Hotel EBITDA, in millions $ 72.9 $ 69.7 4.5 %
Hotel EBITDA margin 29.4 % 29.0 % 35 bps
 

RevPAR for our 37 comparable core hotels (45 core hotels excluding the eight Wyndham hotels) increased 5.7% compared to the same period in 2012, while RevPAR for our 18 non-strategic hotels increased 5.2% compared to the same period in 2012.

RevPAR for our 55 comparable hotels (37 comparable core hotels plus 18 non-strategic hotels) was $116.12, a 5.7% increase compared to the same period in 2012. The increase reflects a 3.7% increase in ADR to $149.38 and a 1.9% increase in occupancy to 77.7%.

We believe comparable hotels (which excludes the eight Wyndham hotels) is the most appropriate measure on which to assess the operating performance of our portfolio. The eight Wyndham hotels were rebranded from Holiday Inn to Wyndham and transitioned management on March 1, 2013. RevPAR for the eight hotels declined 17.0% for the second quarter compared to the same period in 2012. This decline reflects the impact of changing brands and management companies, including related renovations. Furthermore, Wyndham Worldwide Corporation is providing a guarantee which ensures minimum annual NOI for the eight hotels. We have recorded a $2.7 million pro rata portion of the projected 2013 guarantee through June 30, 2013 as a reduction of Wyndham’s contractual management and other fees. This is reflected in Hotel EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA margin. In addition, our outlook assumes the minimum EBITDA amount for the Wyndham hotels based on the annual guarantee. However, we expect the performance of our Wyndham portfolio to improve meaningfully throughout the year, as the transitional disruption subsides.

For the 55 comparable hotels, total revenue increased 6.3% compared to the same period in 2012; Hotel EBITDA was $61.7 million, 8.3% higher than the same period in 2012; and Hotel EBITDA margin was 28.2% during the quarter, a 52 basis point increase from the same period in 2012.

RevPAR for our 63 same-store hotels (55 comparable hotels plus the eight Wyndham hotels) was $114.72, a 2.1% increase compared to the same period in 2012. The increase reflects a 2.5% increase in ADR to $149.31 offset by a 30 basis point decrease in occupancy to 76.8%.

Year-to-Date Operating Results:

RevPAR for 55 comparable hotels was $109.41, a 6.6% increase compared to the same period in 2012. The increase reflects a 4.3% increase in ADR to $147.61 and a 2.2% increase in occupancy to 74.1%. Total revenue for the 55 comparable hotels increased 7.1% from the same period in 2012.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, same-store Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel EBITDA, Hotel EBITDA margin, FFO, Adjusted FFO and Adjusted FFO per share are all non-GAAP financial measures. See our discussion of “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” beginning on page 18 for a reconciliation of each of these measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measure and for information regarding the use, limitations and importance of these non-GAAP financial measures.

Portfolio Repositioning:

During the second quarter, we sold the 160-room Holiday Inn - Santa Barbara/Goleta for $24.0 million. On July 18, we sold the 278-room Sheraton Suites Galleria - Atlanta for $21.0 million. The hotels’ operating performance is included in discontinued operations for the second quarter and year-to-date.

On July 30, we received a non-refundable deposit pursuant to an agreement to sell the 244-room DoubleTree Hotel in Wilmington for $27.7 million. We expect to close the sale in August.

To date, we have sold 21 of 39 non-strategic hotels as part of our portfolio repositioning plan. We are currently marketing nine non-strategic hotels, of which we have agreed to sell three, including the DoubleTree in Wilmington, and are negotiating to sell two others. We will use the sale proceeds to repay debt and reduce leverage. The other nine non-strategic hotels are owned by joint ventures, and we continue to advance toward agreements with our partners to facilitate marketing those properties.

Capital Expenditures:

Capital expenditures at our operating hotels (including our pro rata share of joint ventures) were $24.0 million during the quarter (including approximately $10.3 million for redevelopment projects and repositioning our Wyndham hotels).

During 2013, we anticipate investing approximately $65 million on capital improvements and renovations, concentrated mostly at seven hotels, as part of our 20-year capital plan. In addition, we anticipate investing approximately $40 million on redevelopment projects (excluding the Knickerbocker) and repositioning our Wyndham hotels. Please see page 12 of this release for more detail on renovations.

Through June 30, 2013, we have spent $49.4 million, in addition to the initial acquisition cost, to redevelop the 4+ star Knickerbocker Hotel. The project remains on budget and is scheduled to open in early 2014.

Balance Sheet:

At June 30, 2013, we had $1.7 billion of consolidated debt bearing a 6.3% weighted-average interest rate (approximately 150 basis points below last year) and a seven-year weighted-average maturity. We had $66.2 million of cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2013. In addition, we had $77.9 million of restricted cash, of which $64.9 million secures our Knickerbocker construction loan.

Outlook:

We updated our 2013 outlook to reflect second quarter results and revised timing of asset sales. Our 2013 outlook reflects selling the remaining nine hotels currently on the market. We assume the sale of three hotels, currently under contract, in August. The low-end of our outlook assumes that we sell the remaining hotels at the end of the third quarter, and the high-end of our outlook assumes that we sell the remaining hotels at the end of 2013. Our outlook also assumes the minimum EBITDA amount for the Wyndham hotels based on the annual NOI guarantee.

During 2013, we anticipate:
  • Comparable RevPAR will increase between 6.0%-6.75%;
  • Adjusted EBITDA will be between $197.0 million and $203.5 million;
  • Adjusted FFO per share will be between $0.36 and $0.41;
  • Net loss attributable to FelCor will be between $76.5 million and $72.5 million; and
  • Interest expense, including pro rata share from joint ventures, will be between $106.5 million and $107.0 million.

The following table reconciles our 2013 Adjusted EBITDA to Same-store Adjusted EBITDA outlook (in millions):
  Low     High
Previous Adjusted EBITDA Outlook (65 hotels) $ 204.0 $ 208.5
EBITDA of two sold hotels from closing to December 31 (2.5 ) (2.5 )
Change in operations   0.5     (0.5 )
Adjusted EBITDA Outlook (63 hotels) $ 202.0 $ 205.5
 
EBITDA of nine non-strategic hotels from closing to December 31(a)   (5.0 )   (2.0 )
Adjusted EBITDA Outlook (54 hotels) $ 197.0 $ 203.5
Discontinued Operations(b)   (19.0 )   (22.0 )
Same-store Adjusted EBITDA (54 hotels) $ 178.0   $ 181.5  
 

(a) EBITDA that would have been recognized with respect to nine hotels assumed to be sold during 2013 from the dates of sale through December 31, 2013.

(b) EBITDA from two hotels sold in 2013 from January 1, 2013 through the dates of sale and EBITDA that is forecasted to be generated by nine additional hotels assumed to be sold during 2013 from January 1, 2013 through the dates of sale.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We refer in this release to certain “non-GAAP financial measures.” These measures, including FFO, Adjusted FFO, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, same-store Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA margin, are measures of our financial performance that are not calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The following tables reconcile each of these non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measure. Immediately following the reconciliations, we include a discussion of why we believe these measures are useful supplemental measures of our performance and the limitations of such measures.

Substantially all of our non-current assets consist of real estate. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, most industry investors consider supplemental measures of performance, which are not measures of operating performance under GAAP, to be helpful in evaluating a real estate company’s operations. These supplemental measures are not measures of operating performance under GAAP. However, we consider these non-GAAP measures to be supplemental measures of a hotel REIT’s performance and should be considered along with, but not as an alternative to, net income (loss) attributable to FelCor as a measure of our operating performance.

FFO and EBITDA

The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) defines FFO as net income or loss attributable to parent (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains or losses from sales of property, plus depreciation, amortization and impairment losses. FFO for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures are calculated on the same basis. We compute FFO in accordance with standards established by NAREIT. This may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the term in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the current NAREIT definition differently than we do.

EBITDA is a commonly used measure of performance in many industries. We define EBITDA as net income or loss attributable to parent (computed in accordance with GAAP) plus interest expenses, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures are calculated to reflect EBITDA on the same basis.

Adjustments to FFO and EBITDA

We adjust FFO and EBITDA when evaluating our performance because management believes that the exclusion of certain additional items provides useful supplemental information to investors regarding our ongoing operating performance and that the presentation of Adjusted FFO, and Adjusted EBITDA when combined with GAAP net income attributable to FelCor, EBITDA and FFO, is beneficial to an investor’s better understanding of our operating performance.
  • Gains and losses related to extinguishment of debt and interest rate swaps - We exclude gains and losses related to extinguishment of debt and interest rate swaps from FFO and EBITDA because we believe that it is not indicative of ongoing operating performance of our hotel assets. This also represents an acceleration of interest expense or a reduction of interest expense, and interest expense is excluded from EBITDA.
  • Cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle - Infrequently, the Financial Accounting Standards Board promulgates new accounting standards that require the consolidated statements of operations to reflect the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle. We exclude these one-time adjustments in computing Adjusted FFO and Adjusted EBITDA because they do not reflect our actual performance for that period.
  • Other transaction costs - From time to time, we periodically incur costs that are not indicative of ongoing operating performance. Such costs include, but are not limited to, conversion costs, acquisition costs, pre-opening costs and severance costs. We exclude these costs from the calculation of Adjusted FFO and Adjusted EBITDA.
  • Variable stock compensation - We exclude the cost associated with our variable stock compensation. This cost is subject to volatility related to the price and dividends of our common stock that does not necessarily correspond to our operating performance.

In addition, to derive Adjusted EBITDA, we exclude gains or losses on the sale of depreciable assets and impairment losses because including them in EBITDA is inconsistent with reporting the ongoing performance of our remaining assets. Additionally, the gain or loss on sale of depreciable assets and impairment losses represents either accelerated depreciation or excess depreciation in previous periods, and depreciation is excluded from EBITDA. We also exclude the amortization of our fixed stock and directors’ compensation. While this amortization is included in corporate expenses and is not separately stated on our statement of operations, excluding this amortization is consistent with the EBITDA definition.

Hotel EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA Margin

Hotel EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA margin are commonly used measures of performance in the hotel industry and give investors a more complete understanding of the operating results over which our individual hotels and brand/managers have direct control. We believe that Hotel EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA margin are useful to investors by providing greater transparency with respect to two significant measures that we use in our financial and operational decision-making. Additionally, using these measures facilitates comparisons with other hotel REITs and hotel owners. We present Hotel EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA margin in a manner consistent with Adjusted EBITDA, however, we also eliminate all revenues and expenses from continuing operations not directly associated with hotel operations, including other income and corporate-level expenses. We eliminate these additional items because we believe property-level results provide investors with supplemental information into the ongoing operational performance of our hotels and the effectiveness of management on a property-level basis. We also eliminate consolidated percentage rent paid to unconsolidated entities, which is effectively eliminated by noncontrolling interests and equity in income from unconsolidated subsidiaries, and include the cost of unconsolidated taxes, insurance and lease expense, to reflect the entire operating costs applicable to our Consolidated Hotels. Hotel EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA margins are presented on a same-store basis.

Use and Limitations of Non-GAAP Measures

Our management and Board of Directors use FFO, Adjusted FFO, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Same-store Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA margin to evaluate the performance of our hotels and to facilitate comparisons between us and other lodging REITs, hotel owners who are not REITs and other capital intensive companies. We use Hotel EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA margin in evaluating hotel-level performance and the operating efficiency of our hotel managers.

The use of these non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations. These non-GAAP financial measures as presented by us, may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures as calculated by other real estate companies. These measures do not reflect certain expenses or expenditures that we incurred and will incur, such as depreciation, interest and capital expenditures. Management compensates for these limitations by separately considering the impact of these excluded items to the extent they are material to operating decisions or assessments of our operating performance. Our reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP financial measures, and our consolidated statements of operations and cash flows, include interest expense, capital expenditures, and other excluded items, all of which should be considered when evaluating our performance, as well as the usefulness of our non-GAAP financial measures.

These non-GAAP financial measures are used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP. They should not be considered as alternatives to operating profit, cash flow from operations, or any other operating performance measure prescribed by GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect additional ways of viewing our operations that we believe, when viewed with our GAAP results and the reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. Management strongly encourages investors to review our financial information in its entirety and not to rely on a single financial measure.
