“During the second quarter, our portfolio generated healthy year over year growth in operational results which exceeded our expectations,” said Jon E. Bortz, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. “Overall, demand accelerated in the second quarter from the first quarter, driven by improvements in business travel demand, both group and transient, and inbound international travel that has reversed and is now growing. Elevated group spend that we experienced in the first quarter continued throughout the second quarter. Leisure remains strong, and non-room revenues continued to increase above our expectations. This enabled us to beat our second quarter outlook for Same-Property EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDAre and Adjusted FFO per diluted share. We expect that the encouraging travel demand trends we’ve been experiencing will continue into the second half of the year as short-term group and transient booking trends are very positive.”

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Net income: The Company’s net income was $58.3 million in the second quarter of 2018, increasing $14.6 million as compared to the same period of 2017.
  • Same-Property RevPAR and Same-Property Total RevPAR: Same-Property RevPAR for the quarter increased 2.6 percent versus 2017 to $223.81. Same-Property ADR climbed 1.5 percent over the prior year to $254.81. Same-Property Occupancy grew 1.1 percent to 87.8 percent. Same-Property Total RevPAR increased 3.1 percent over the same period of 2017 to $325.39.
  • Same-Property EBITDA: The Company’s hotels generated $74.8 million of Same-Property EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, increasing 4.5 percent over the same period of 2017. Same-Property Revenues grew 3.2 percent, while Same-Property Expenses were held to an increase of only 2.4 percent. Same-Property EBITDA Margin increased 47 basis points to 36.2 percent for the second quarter of 2018, as compared to the same period last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDAre: The Company’s Adjusted EBITDAre grew to $72.8 million from $67.2 million in the prior year period, an increase of 8.4 percent. Adjusted EBITDAre includes $1.9 million of business interruption income related to lost EBITDA incurred and forecasted in 2018 at LaPlaya Beach Resort & Club (“LaPlaya”) and $2.4 million of dividend income received from the Company’s investment in liquid marketable securities, $3.1 million of which was not included in the Company’s second quarter outlook. Beginning this quarter, the Company is reporting and forecasting Adjusted EBITDAre. Adjusted EBITDAre is the same as the previously reported and forecasted Adjusted EBITDA.
  • Adjusted FFO: The Company’s Adjusted FFO increased 7.4 percent to $56.0 million from $52.1 million in the prior year period.
  • Dividends: On June 15, 2018, the Company declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.38 per share on its common shares, a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.40625 per share on its 6.50% Series C Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares of Beneficial Interest and a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.39844 per share on its 6.375% Series D Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares of Beneficial Interest.

“Our hotels performed very well throughout the second quarter and took advantage of improving business demand fundamentals, driving solid results across our portfolio,” noted Mr. Bortz. “San Francisco was our strongest market in the second quarter, with RevPAR climbing 15.5 percent, largely attributed to a more active convention calendar at the Moscone Convention Center, the favorable ramp-up of Hotel Zoe Fisherman’s Wharf, which was redeveloped and transformed last year, and our newfound ability to drive ADR growth with increased compression in the San Francisco market. In the second quarter, Same-Property RevPAR for our portfolio grew 2.6 percent, at the upper end of our guidance of plus 1.0 percent to 3.0 percent. Same-Property Total Revenue rose 3.2 percent, a direct result of our efforts to enhance the hotel experience for our guests through enriched amenities and additional value created in our reconcepted food and beverage outlets and public areas. These non-room revenues increased by 4.4 percent in the quarter. Our asset managers and operational teams were able to limit Same-Property Expense growth to 2.4 percent by relentlessly implementing our best practices and successfully achieving further efficiencies. As a result, Same-Property EBITDA increased 4.5 percent, which was $1.4 million above the upper end of our guidance.”

Update on Impact from Hurricane Irma on LaPlaya Beach Resort & Club

During the second quarter of 2018, the Company executed a finalized settlement agreement with its insurance carriers providing for $20.5 million of insurance proceeds for the remediation and repair work for damages caused by Hurricane Irma in September of 2017. This settlement includes $1.9 million of 2018 business interruption income which was also recorded as business interruption proceeds in the second quarter of 2018 and was not previously included in the Company’s 2018 outlook. The Company is confident that the resort will be fully restored by the conclusion of the construction and go-back work later this year.

Capital Reinvestments

In the second quarter, the Company completed $17.1 million of capital investments throughout its portfolio. In June, the Company substantially completed its $8.5 million investment in the redevelopment of Hotel Zephyr Fisherman’s Wharf’s Zephyr Walk. The approximately 46,000 square feet of street-level retail space has been significantly upgraded and enhanced, and the Company will continue its re-leasing efforts throughout the year. During the remainder of 2018, the Company will execute additional renovations at a number of properties that will improve performance in future years, including:

  • Mondrian Los Angeles (estimated at $18.0 million), which will undergo a renovation of the guestrooms and guest bathrooms, as well as our legendary Skybar, beginning in the fourth quarter of this year, with an expected completion date in the first quarter of 2019;
  • W Hotel Boston (estimated at $10.0 million), which will undergo a guestroom renovation beginning in the fourth quarter of 2018, with an expected completion date in the first quarter of 2019;
  • Sir Francis Drake (estimated at $9.0 million), which includes a lobby and an expanded guestroom refresh, featuring guest bathroom tub to shower conversions, beginning in the third quarter of this year, to be completed at the end of 2018; and
  • Hotel Zelos San Francisco (estimated at $6.0 million), which involves a guestroom refresh and an expanded guest bathroom renovation to be completed by the end of 2018, which will build on the success of the previously transformed lobby, guestroom corridors and the award-winning Dirty Habit, all of which were completed in 2014.

Year-to-Date Highlights

  • Net Income: The Company’s net income was $82.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018, an increase of $25.1 million over the same period of 2017.
  • Same-Property RevPAR and Same-Property Total Revenue per Available Room: Same-Property RevPAR for the six months ended June 30, 2018 increased 1.3 percent over the same period of 2017 to $209.57. Year-to-date Same-Property ADR rose 1.1 percent from the comparable period of 2017 to $249.90, and year-to-date Same-Property Occupancy increased 0.2 percent to 83.9 percent.

Capital Markets and Balance Sheet

As of June 30, 2018, the Company had $1.2 billion in consolidated debt at an effective weighted-average interest rate of 3.5 percent. The Company had $675.0 million outstanding in the form of unsecured term loans and $383.0 million outstanding on its $450.0 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility. As of June 30, 2018, the Company had $25.5 million of consolidated cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash.

During the quarter, the Company increased its strategic purchases in LaSalle Hotel Properties (NYSE: LHO) (“LaSalle”) and now holds an ownership position of approximately 9.8 percent of the outstanding common shares of LaSalle, comprising approximately $349.8 million of invested capital. As of June 30, 2018, excluding the dividend income and associated debt related to the ownership of the LaSalle shares, the Company’s fixed charge coverage ratio was 4.2 times and total net debt to trailing 12-month corporate EBITDA was 3.4 times.

Proposed Combination with LaSalle Hotel Properties

On June 11, 2018, the Company issued an offer letter to LaSalle’s board, in which the Company submitted a merger proposal for a strategic combination with LaSalle, based on a fixed exchange ratio of 0.92 common share of the Company (“Pebblebrook common shares”) for each LaSalle common share. The Company’s offer provides LaSalle’s common shareholders with the option for each share to elect to receive a fixed price of $37.80 per LaSalle share in cash instead of Pebblebrook common shares, subject to a cap of 20% of LaSalle shares receiving cash in total and customary pro ration if the number of LaSalle holders electing to receive cash instead of stock is oversubscribed. This offer remains outstanding and was resubmitted to LaSalle’s board in a separate letter on July 20, 2018, and the Company is prepared to move forward with it immediately. On July 10, 2018, the Company filed a preliminary proxy statement to urge LaSalle’s shareholders to vote with the Company against the proposed Blackstone take-under offer of $33.50 per share.

The Company remains convinced that a merger with LaSalle presents the most compelling strategic opportunity for the shareholders of both the Company and LaSalle, and the Company’s Board of Trustees unanimously supports a combination with LaSalle.

2018 Outlook

The Company has updated its 2018 outlook to reflect the second quarter Same-Property EBITDA outperformance of $1.4 million and the overall strengthening in economic activity and accelerating improvements in group and transient travel demand expected for the remainder of 2018 for an additional $1.4 million. Partly offsetting the increased outlook for portfolio Same-Property EBITDA is the increased short-term disruption from the recently expanded renovation scopes at Sir Francis Drake and Hotel Zelos San Francisco during the third and fourth quarters of 2018 which are expected to reduce Same-Property EBITDA by $2.8 million, resulting in no change to the upper end of the Company’s 2018 Same-Property EBITDA outlook and a $1.5 million increase to the lower end of the 2018 Same-Property EBITDA outlook.

The Company’s updated 2018 outlook also reflects an additional $4.2 million of interest expense related to the net 5.4 million additional LaSalle common shares purchased during the second quarter and $1.2 million of reduced dividend income compared to the prior outlook due to the elimination of the third and fourth quarter common dividends on the LaSalle shares as agreed by LaSalle’s board pursuant to the merger agreement entered into with Blackstone. On a combined basis, the increased interest expense and reduced dividend income relating to the strategic acquisition of the LaSalle common shares will reduce Adjusted FFO by $5.4 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, versus the Company’s prior outlook. The Company’s unrealized gain on investment in LaSalle common shares as of June 30, 2018 was $20.2 million, which is not reflected in the Company’s 2018 Adjusted EBITDAre or Adjusted FFO.

The Company’s strategic investment in LaSalle has significantly impacted its 2018 outlook. Had the Company not made the strategic investment in LaSalle, on a full-year basis, the Company’s 2018 Adjusted EBITDAre would be $5.2 million lower, but the Company’s Adjusted FFO and Adjusted FFO per diluted share would be $7.0 million, and $0.10 higher, respectively.

The Company’s 2018 outlook, which assumes no additional acquisitions or dispositions, reflects the Company’s various planned capital investment projects and includes other significant assumptions, is as follows:

To supplement the Company’s consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), 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 GAAP and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company’s results of operations determined in accordance with GAAP.
 
Funds from Operations (“FFO”) - FFO represents net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains or losses from sales of properties, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships. The Company considers FFO a useful measure of performance for an equity REIT because it facilitates an understanding of the Company's operating performance without giving effect to real estate depreciation and amortization, which assume that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, the Company believes that FFO provides a meaningful indication of its performance. The Company also considers FFO an appropriate performance measure given its wide use by investors and analysts. The Company computes FFO in accordance with standards established by the Board of Governors of Nareit in its March 1995 White Paper (as amended in November 1999 and April 2002), which may differ from the methodology for calculating FFO utilized by other equity REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to that of other REITs. 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, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund the Company’s cash needs, including its ability to make distributions. The Company presents FFO per diluted share calculations that are based on the outstanding dilutive common shares plus the outstanding Operating Partnership units for the periods presented.
 
The Company also evaluates its performance by reviewing Adjusted FFO because it believes that adjusting FFO to exclude certain recurring and non-recurring items described below provides useful supplemental information regarding the Company's ongoing operating performance and that the presentation of Adjusted FFO, when combined with the primary GAAP presentation of net income (loss), more completely describes the Company's operating performance. The Company adjusts FFO for the following items, which may occur in any period, and refers to this measure as Adjusted FFO:
 
- Hotel acquisition and disposition costs: The Company excludes acquisition and disposition transaction costs expensed during the period because it believes that including these costs in FFO does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company and its hotels.
- Non-cash ground rent: The Company excludes the non-cash ground rent expense, which is primarily made up of the straight-line rent impact from a ground lease.
- Management/franchise contract transition costs: The Company excludes one-time management and/or franchise contract transition costs expensed during the period because it believes that including these costs in FFO does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company and its hotels.
- Interest expense adjustment for acquired liabilities: The Company excludes interest expense adjustment for acquired liabilities assumed in connection with acquisitions, because it believes that including these non-cash adjustments in FFO does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company.
- Capital lease adjustment: The Company excludes the effect of non-cash interest expense from capital leases because it believes that including these non-cash adjustments in FFO does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company.
- Non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles: The Company excludes the non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles, which includes but is not limited to the amortization of favorable and unfavorable leases and above/below market real estate tax reduction agreements because it believes that including these non-cash adjustments in FFO does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company.
- Estimated hurricane related repairs and cleanup costs: The Company excludes estimated hurricane related repairs and cleanup costs during the period because it believes that including these adjustments in FFO does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company and its hotels.
- Gain on insurance settlement: The Company excludes the gain on insurance settlement because the Company believes that including this adjustment in FFO does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company and its hotels.
- Business interruption proceeds: The Company includes business interruption proceeds because the Company believes that including these proceeds reflects the underlying financial performance of the Company and its hotels.
- Unrealized gain on investment: The Company excludes the unrealized gain on investment because the Company believes that including this adjustment in FFO does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company and its hotels.
- Other: The Company excludes the ineffective portion of the change in fair value of the hedging instruments during the period because it believes that including these non-cash adjustments in FFO does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company and its hotels.
 
The Company’s presentation of FFO in accordance with the Nareit White Paper, and as adjusted by the Company, should not be considered as an alternative to net income (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of the Company’s financial performance or to cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of its liquidity.

Earnings before Interest, Taxes, and Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA") - The Company believes that EBITDA provides investors a useful financial measure to evaluate its operating performance, excluding the impact of our capital structure (primarily interest expense) and our asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization).
 

Earnings before Interest, Taxes, and Depreciation and Amortization for Real Estate ("EBITDAre") - The Company believes that EBITDAre provides investors a useful financial measure to evaluate its operating performance, and the Company presents EBITDAre in accordance with the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("Nareit") guidelines, as defined in its September 2017 white paper "Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization for Real Estate." EBITDAre adjusts EBITDA for the following items, which may occur in any period, and refers to these measures as Adjusted EBITDAre: (1) gains or losses of on the disposition of depreciated property, including gains or losses on change of control; (2) impairment write-downs of depreciated property and of investments in unconsolidated affiliates caused by a decrease in value of depreciated property in the affiliate; and (3) adjustments to reflect the entity's share of EBITDAre of unconsolidated affiliates.

 

The Company also evaluates its performance by reviewing Adjusted EBITDAre because it believes that adjusting EBITDAre to exclude certain recurring and non-recurring items described below provides useful supplemental information regarding the Company's ongoing operating performance and that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDAre, when combined with the primary GAAP presentation of net income (loss), more completely describes the Company's operating performance.
