“During the third quarter, our overall results topped our expectations as operating fundamentals remained solid,” said Jon E. Bortz, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. “Both group and transient business along with leisure travel demand remained healthy in the industry and across our portfolio. Our hotels located in San Francisco led the portfolio during the quarter, aided by an active convention calendar, demonstrating the robust RevPAR growth the city should continue to experience following the completion of the Moscone Convention Center expansion later this year. As we look ahead, our 2019 portfolio-wide pace continues to be strong, with revenues on the books for 2019 up 20.5 percent over the same time last year, as both group and transient booking demand trends remain very positive. We are increasingly excited about 2019 and believe our portfolio is well positioned to take advantage of a growing economy with healthy underlying operating fundamentals.”

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Net income: The Company’s net income was $29.9 million in the third quarter of 2018, decreasing $0.7 million as compared to the same period of 2017.
  • Same-Property Total RevPAR and Same-Property RevPAR: Same-Property Total RevPAR for the quarter increased 1.5 percent versus 2017 to $321.65. Same-Property RevPAR grew 1.0 percent over the same period of 2017 to $231.94. Same-Property ADR improved 1.1 percent over the prior year to $259.25. Same-Property Occupancy fell 0.1 percent to 89.5 percent.
  • Same-Property EBITDA: The Company’s hotels generated $75.9 million of Same-Property EBITDA for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, increasing 1.7 percent over the same period of 2017. Same-Property Revenues grew 1.5 percent, while Same-Property Expenses were held to growth of only 1.4 percent. Same-Property EBITDA Margin increased 6 basis points to 37.8 percent for the third quarter of 2018, as compared to the same period last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDAre: The Company’s Adjusted EBITDAre declined to $69.4 million from $70.1 million in the prior-year period, a decrease of 1.0 percent. The Adjusted EBITDAre metric was previously reported as Adjusted EBITDA.
  • Adjusted FFO: The Company’s Adjusted FFO decreased 8.1 percent to $51.2 million from $55.8 million in the prior-year period. The decrease is partly due to the Company’s increased interest expense related to the strategic acquisition of LaSalle Hotel Properties (NYSE: LHO) (“LaSalle”) common shares, which amounted to an estimated $3.8 million of additional expense in the third quarter of 2018.
  • Dividends: On September 17, 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.

“While our San Francisco hotels led our portfolio with strong RevPAR growth of 8.0 percent in the quarter, our hotels in Seattle also generated solid RevPAR growth, increasing 4.6 percent,” noted Mr. Bortz. “During the third quarter, our Same-Property RevPAR grew 1.0 percent, which was in line with our guidance of flat to 2.0 percent growth. Same-Property Total Revenue rose 1.5 percent, and non-room revenues increased by 2.8 percent in the third quarter, a direct result of our upgraded amenities, our distinctive public spaces and meeting venues, and our innovative food and beverage outlet concepts and offerings. We limited Same-Property Expense growth to 1.4 percent, as our asset managers and hotel operators continued to successfully innovate and implement our best practices to achieve operational efficiencies. As a result, Same-Property EBITDA increased 1.7 percent, which exceeded the upper end of our outlook.”

Capital Reinvestments

In the third quarter, the Company completed $20.9 million of capital investments throughout its portfolio. During the remainder of 2018, the Company will execute additional renovations at a number of properties to drive improved performance in future years, including:

  • Mondrian Los Angeles (estimated at $18.0 million), which includes a renovation of the guestrooms and guest bathrooms, as well as the hotel lobby and our legendary Skybar. The renovation began this week and has an expected completion date in the first quarter of 2019;
  • W Hotel Boston (estimated at $10.0 million), which will undergo a guestroom renovation that will begin later 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, which began in September this year, to be completed at the end of 2018; and
  • Hotel Zelos San Francisco (estimated at $6.0 million), which consists of a guestroom and 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 $112.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, an increase of $24.4 million over the same period of 2017.
  • Same-Property Total RevPAR and Same-Property RevPAR: Same-Property Total Revenue per Available Room for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 grew 2.1 percent over the same period of 2017. Year-to-date Same-Property RevPAR increased 1.2 percent over the same period of 2017 to $216.97. Year-to-date Same-Property ADR rose 1.1 percent from the comparable period of 2017 to $253.13, and year-to-date Same-Property Occupancy improved 0.1 percent to 85.7 percent.
  • Same-Property EBITDA: The Company’s hotels generated $206.3 million of Same-Property EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, up 2.8 percent compared to the same period of 2017. Same-Property Revenues climbed 2.2 percent, while Same-Property Expenses rose just 1.9 percent. As a result, Same-Property EBITDA Margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 increased 19 basis points to 35.1 percent as compared to the same period last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDAre: The Company’s Adjusted EBITDAre increased 8.1 percent, or $15.2 million, to $201.4 million from $186.3 million in the prior-year period.

Update on Combination with LaSalle Hotel Properties

On September 6, 2018, the Company announced that it had entered into a definitive merger agreement with LaSalle Hotel Properties. Under the terms of the merger agreement, each LaSalle shareholder will have the option to elect to receive for each LaSalle common share owned either a) a fixed amount of $37.80 in cash or b) a fixed exchange ratio of 0.92 Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (“Pebblebrook”) common share. A maximum of 30% of outstanding LaSalle common shares may be exchanged for cash, subject to pro rata cut backs. LaSalle common shares held by Pebblebrook will be excluded from the cash election in the merger, effectively increasing the maximum cash shares to approximately 33 percent of the aggregate number of LaSalle common shares outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the merger.

The transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals and approval by LaSalle shareholders and Pebblebrook shareholders, is expected to close on November 30, 2018. Pebblebrook and LaSalle will each hold a special meeting of its shareholders on November 27, 2018, to approve Pebblebrook’s proposed merger with LaSalle. The Pebblebrook Board recommends that shareholders vote “FOR” the proposal to approve the merger and other transactions contemplated by the merger agreement. Pebblebrook and LaSalle shareholders of record as of the close of business on October 23, 2018 will be entitled to vote at the applicable special meeting of shareholders.

Prior to the execution of the merger agreement, three of LaSalle’s hotels were placed under a hard-money contract to be sold just prior to the closing of the merger for a total of approximately $715.0 million. Following the completion of the merger agreement, the Company announced a $500.0 million to $1.0 billion disposition program to sell select LaSalle properties beyond the initial three hotels to quickly reduce the Company’s leverage and to take advantage of a healthy transaction market. In accordance with this disposition program, a fourth hotel was recently placed under an additional hard-money contract with a separate third-party buyer to be sold just prior to the closing of the merger for approximately $38.75 million. The Company has already retained brokers to market for sale more than $750.0 million of additional assets. After completing a thorough review of the portfolio and touring each of the properties, the Company is increasing the range of its disposition program to $750.0 million to $1.25 billion. Overall, the Company has increased the dollar volume of potential assets to be sold and has also accelerated the expected timing of some of the sales.

“We are extremely encouraged by the significant buyer interest we’ve been experiencing for our potential hotel sales,” commented Mr. Bortz. “We look forward to continuing the process and completing our disposition program over the next six to twelve months.”

Capital Markets and Balance Sheet

On October 31, 2018, the Company closed on a new $1.75 billion term loan agreement with a consortium of banks. When funded in connection with the completion of the merger with LaSalle, this financing provides the necessary capital to fund the LaSalle merger and provides increased liquidity and debt capacity. The maturities on the new term loan are allocated across five tranches maturing between the years 2020 and 2024.

As of September 30, 2018, the Company had $1.3 billion in consolidated debt at an effective weighted-average interest rate of 3.6 percent. The Company had $775.0 million outstanding in the form of unsecured term loans and $394.0 million outstanding on its $450.0 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility. As of September 30, 2018, the Company had $26.5 million of consolidated cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash.

As of September 30, 2018, excluding the dividend income and associated debt related to the ownership of the LaSalle common shares, the Company’s fixed charge coverage ratio was 4.2 times and total net debt to trailing 12-month corporate EBITDA was 3.8 times.

2018 Outlook

The Company has updated its 2018 outlook to reflect the Company’s third quarter performance and its revised outlook for the fourth quarter. For the fourth quarter, the Company anticipates approximately 420 basis points of negative impact to portfolio RevPAR growth due to 320 basis points of ongoing renovation disruption and 100 basis points of hotel management company integration issues and other market-based disruption.

The Company’s updated 2018 outlook does not reflect the additional interest expense and costs associated with the recently closed and previously mentioned $1.75 billion term loan, as the term loan will not be funded until the Company’s merger with LaSalle is completed.

The Company’s 2018 outlook, which assumes no additional acquisitions or dispositions, does not assume the closing of the LaSalle merger, 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 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.
