Third Quarter Highlights
  • Same-Store RevPAR: Same-store revenue per available room (“RevPAR”) in the third quarter of 2013 grew to $79.38, an increase of 6.2 percent over the same period in 2012. Same-store average daily rate (“ADR”) improved to $104.61, an increase of 5.5 percent from the third quarter of 2012. Same-store occupancy grew by 47 basis points to 75.9 percent.
  • Pro Forma RevPAR: Pro forma RevPAR in the third quarter of 2013 grew to $83.56, an increase of 3.3 percent over the same period in 2012. Pro forma ADR grew to $111.90, an increase of 5.1 percent from the third quarter of 2012. Pro forma occupancy decreased by 132 basis points to 74.7 percent. Pro forma RevPAR grew by 5.1 percent, ADR grew by 5.8 percent and occupancy decreased by 60 basis points in the third quarter of 2013, when excluding the five hotels in the New Orleans market acquired in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Pro Forma Hotel EBITDA: Pro forma hotel EBITDA for the third quarter of 2013 was $28.6 million, an increase of 5.3 percent over the same period of 2012.
  • Pro Forma Hotel EBITDA Margin: Pro forma hotel EBITDA margin expanded 60 basis points compared with the same period in 2012. Pro forma hotel EBITDA margin improved by 71 basis points, excluding the five recently acquired hotels in the New Orleans market. Pro forma hotel EBITDA margin is defined as pro forma hotel EBITDA as a percentage of pro forma total revenue.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA increased to $26.5 million from $15.2 million in the same period in 2012, an increase of $11.3 million or 73.7 percent. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter includes $0.1 million of charges associated with the consolidation of the Company’s corporate office to Austin, Texas.
  • Adjusted FFO: Adjusted FFO for the quarter was $17.8 million, or $0.25 per diluted unit, which includes a tax benefit of $1.4 million.
  • Dividends: On October 31, 2013, the Company declared an $0.1125 per share quarterly dividend on its common stock, a $0.578125 per share quarterly dividend on its 9.25 percent Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, a $0.4921875 per share quarterly dividend on its 7.875 percent Series B Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, and a $0.4453125 per share quarterly dividend on its 7.125 percent Series C Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock. Based on the closing price on November 4, 2013, annualized dividend yield on the Company’s common stock was 4.8 percent.

In September, the Company completed a public offering of 17.25 million shares of common stock, raising net proceeds of $152.2 million. The effect of the offering on previously announced guidance would have reduced estimated Adjusted FFO guidance per diluted unit from a range of $0.24 - $0.26 down to $0.23 - $0.25.

“This follow-on offering positions us well for sustained growth, providing us with capital to acquire strategic hotels over the next several quarters,” said Dan Hansen, Summit’s President and CEO. “The short-term dilutive effect will resolve itself quickly as we execute on hotel acquisitions. Since the offering was completed, we have acquired two hotels and have three under purchase agreement, as well as a very active pipeline of both single assets and small portfolios.”

“Our results were within our expected range but several items affected them both on the positive and negative side,” he noted. “Our RevPAR growth was within our range when excluding the five recently acquired New Orleans properties. Adjusted FFO per diluted unit was aided by a tax benefit of approximately $0.02 per diluted unit. Several factors also influenced operating results at a small number of hotels in some markets during the quarter, including the sequestration, the uncertainty of a government shutdown and sub-par performance. We have addressed the operating shortcomings at those hotels with our third-party management companies and expect to see improvements. We remain positive about the Company’s 2014 outlook.”

2 Pro forma information includes operating results for 82 hotels owned as of September 30, 2013 as if each hotel had been owned by the Company since January 1, 2012, which excludes the following ten hotels that were held for sale at September 30, 2013: the 63-guestroom Fairfield Inn, Boise, Id.; the 63-guestroom Hampton Inn, Boise, Id.; the 60-guestroom AmericInn Hotel & Suites, Salina, Kan.; the 63-guestroom Fairfield Inn, Salina, Kan.; the 89-guestroom AmericInn Hotel & Suites, Fort Smith, Ark.; the 57-guestroom Aspen Hotel & Suites, Fort Smith, Ark.; the 178-guestroom Hampton Inn, Fort Smith, Ark.; the 57-guestroom Fairfield Inn, Emporia, Kan.; the 58-guestroom Holiday Inn Express, Emporia, Kan.; and the 78-guestroom SpringHill Suites, Little Rock, Ark. As a result, these pro forma operating measures include operating results for certain hotels for periods prior to the Company’s ownership.

“Our acquisition activity in 2013, including the two recently acquired Southern California hotels, will help drive significant earnings per share growth in 2014,” Hansen said.

“Our same-store and pro forma (excluding New Orleans) RevPAR growth for the quarter was at or above comparable STR results,” Hansen stated. “We previously noted the significant RevPAR growth in 2012 would create difficult RevPAR comparisons for the second half of 2013. Our same-store hotels generated 12.9 percent and 15.3 percent RevPAR growth in the third and fourth quarters of 2012, respectively.”

Capital Investment

Acquisitions

During the third quarter of 2013, the Company announced four pending acquisitions including: the 115-guestroom Hampton Inn & Suites, Ventura (Camarillo), Calif.; the 108-guestroom Hampton Inn & Suites, San Diego (Poway), Calif.; the 98-guestroom Hampton Inn, Santa Barbara (Goleta), Calif.; and the 182-guestroom Hilton Garden Inn, Houston, Texas.

Subsequent to the third quarter’s end, the Company closed on two of the four announced acquisitions. On October 1, 2013 and October 8, 2013, the Company closed on the Ventura Hampton Inn & Suites and the San Diego Hampton Inn & Suites, respectively.

The conversion of the 213-guestroom hotel to a Hyatt Place in downtown Minneapolis is nearly complete and expected to close prior to year-end 2013.

Renovation Capital

The Company invested $12.3 million on renovations during the third quarter of 2013 at eleven properties. Projects ranged from lobby and public space improvements to complete guestroom renovations, including furniture, soft goods, and guest bathrooms.

“The capital we have invested in the renovations of our hotels continues to yield exceptional results,” Hansen said. “We see ongoing RevPAR growth premiums from these upgraded hotels and will maintain investment in our portfolio where opportunities are presented.”

Dispositions

During the third quarter of 2013, the Company sold three hotels and a parcel of land that it no longer considers strategic for a total sale price of $8.0 million. In addition, the Company reclassified ten non-strategic hotels to held for sale; with plans to divest these hotels in the next several quarters.

Balance Sheet
  • At September 30, 2013, the Company had total outstanding debt of $400.3 million and $45.5 million of cash and cash equivalents. Maximum borrowing capacity was $150.0 million under the senior secured revolving credit facility. The Company had no outstanding borrowings on its senior secured revolving credit facility, $0.7 million in standby letters of credit, and $149.3 million available to borrow. In addition, the Company had 15 unencumbered hotels.
  • The Company’s weighted average interest rate on its debt outstanding at September 30, 2013 was 5.27 percent.
  • At September 30, 2013, the Company’s total net debt to trailing twelve month pro forma corporate EBITDA was 3.7x.

Subsequent Events
  • On October 1, 2013, the Company acquired the 115-guestroom Hampton Inn & Suites located in Ventura (Camarillo), Calif., for a purchase price of $15.7 million.
  • On October 8, 2013, the Company acquired the 108-guestroom Hampton Inn & Suites located in San Diego (Poway), Calif., for a purchase price of $15.2 million.
  • On October 10, 2013, the Company closed on a $300.0 million senior unsecured credit facility. The unsecured credit facility is comprised of a $225.0 million revolving credit facility and a $75.0 million term loan. The credit facility has an accordion feature which will allow the Company to increase the capacity by $100.0 million in either additional revolver capacity or an additional term loan.
  • Subsequent to quarter end, the Company sold two hotels and one parcel of land for a total sales price of $8.6 million.

Current Portfolio

As of November 5, 2013, the Company owns 92 hotels totaling 11,002 guestrooms in 24 states, with 21 brands. Since its initial public offering in February 2011, the Company has acquired 42 hotel properties, totaling 5,735 guestrooms for a total purchase price of $760.5 million.

Estimated Sources and Uses of Cash

On page 17 of this release, the Company provides a schedule of estimated sources and uses of cash. The schedule reflects components of the Company’s balance sheet as of September 30, 2013, as well as subsequently completed or announced hotel acquisitions and dispositions and completed or anticipated financing transactions. The schedule assumes dividends will be paid out of operating cash flow. No assurance can be given that anticipated transactions will be completed within the expected time frame, or at all. The timing of these transactions may change. In addition, the Company may choose not to complete anticipated transactions for various reasons, including reasons beyond the control of the Company.

Fourth Quarter 2013 Outlook

The Company provides guidance for the fourth quarter based on 87 current hotels. 1 This outlook includes activity subsequent to quarter end. Except as described in footnote 1 below, it assumes no additional hotels are acquired or sold in the fourth quarter and no additional issuances of equity securities.

“We expect to see an effect of 45 to 50 basis points of RevPAR disruption due to the government shutdown and the on-going sequestration in the fourth quarter,” Hansen said. “The fourth quarter historically is the slowest for both Summit and the hotel industry, with November and December being the most difficult to predict due to the holiday season. As a result, we have less opportunity to recover the revenue lost in October. This is expected to affect RevPAR and margins. We view this largely as a unique event, assuming the government can get its debt-limit issues under control without further disruptions.”

Forward-looking statements are generally identifiable by use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “potential,” “intend,” “expect,” “seek,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “approximately,” “believe,” “could,” “project,” “predict,” “forecast,” “continue,” “plan” or other similar words or expressions. 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, dispositions, financings or services; forecasts of the Company’s future financial 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; estimated sources and uses of available capital; 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, 2012.

The following condensed consolidated balance sheets and statements of operations are those of Summit Hotel OP, LP (the Operating Partnership) and Summit Hotel Properties, Inc.’s (the REIT) 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.

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 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.
