Pebblebrook Hotel Trust Reports Third Quarter 2020 Results

Company Release - 10/29/2020 4:06 PM ET

BETHESDA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (NYSE:PEB):

REOPENING OF
HOTELS AND
RESORTS

  • 39 hotels and resorts currently open, which is approximately three-fourths of the Company’s portfolio; these 39 properties accounted for 76% of Pebblebrook’s 2019 Hotel EBITDA
  • Demand in the third quarter continued to increase from the second quarter’s all-time low, with healthy leisure business throughout the quarter and a modest post-Labor Day improvement in business travel
  • In October, the Company reopened Hotel Vintage Portland, Hotel Zena Washington DC, The Heathman in Portland, and Hotel Vintage Seattle

 

 

 

AVERAGE
MONTHLY CASH
BURN

  • Monthly cash burn at the Company’s hotels continues to be reduced as the demand recovery continues, additional properties reopen and operating performance ramps up
  • Monthly hotel portfolio cash burn is currently running at $5 to $8 million; a $10 million reduction to the Company’s early May midpoint estimate
  • Total monthly corporate cash burn is now running at $16 to $21 million; a $9 million reduction to the Company’s early May midpoint estimate

 

 

 

BALANCE SHEET &
LIQUIDITY

  • As of September 30, 2020, cash on hand of $217.0 million and liquidity of $570.2 million, which includes $353.2 million available on the Company’s $650.0 million credit facility
  • Net debt to depreciated book value at the end of Q3 2020: 38%

 

 

2020 OUTLOOK

  • Given the uncertainties related to the pandemic, its impact on travel, and variable government restrictions, the Company is unable to provide a 2020 Outlook at this time

“Throughout the summer, leisure demand continued to improve across the travel and hotel industries and remained unseasonably healthy post-Labor Day, benefitting our properties and particularly our drive-to resorts and urban getaway hotels. Furthermore, business travel began a modest improvement, indicative of more companies and businesses choosing to get back on the road. Finally, we’ve seen some modest pickup in small group business. This steady but slow recovery in hotel demand has led to improved operating performance and a continuing reduction in our hotel and corporate cash burn from the historic lows in the second quarter. Although we do not expect to eliminate our cash burn before year-end, we are incrementally more optimistic as our improved, efficient hotel operating models materially enhance our bottom-line results. However, we remain cautious about operating trends as we head into winter, due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases and the predicted second wave.”
-Jon E. Bortz, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust

For the details as to which hotels are included in Same-Property Room Revenues, Total Revenues, Expenses and EBITDA appearing in the table above and elsewhere in this press release, refer to the Same-Property Statistical Data table footnotes later in this press release.

"Our hotels experienced improved operating and financial performance each month during the third quarter, and October appears to be tracking in line with September’s results,” noted Mr. Bortz. “Combined with our revised hotel operating models following COVID-19, our hotels are running with lower operating expenses, which is enabling them to achieve profitability sooner than we would have anticipated several months ago. Our zero-based budgeting has been embraced by our hotel teams working closely with our asset managers. This is encouraging and will enable our hotels to drive more EBITDA to the bottom line and outperform other hotels in their markets as the recovery accelerates in 2021. We appreciate all the sacrifices that our hotel teams, operating companies and corporate staff have made to get through this unprecedented period, as we get through this together.”

During the third quarter, occupancy at our open hotels improved from 28.4 percent in July with 23 hotels open, to 30.4 percent in August with 34 hotels open, to 38.3 percent in September with 35 hotels open. The Company’s open hotels generated $700 thousand of Hotel EBITDA in the quarter, even after the negative impact of $2.1 million of retail rent write-offs and straight-line rent adjustments. The Company’s resort portfolio, of which all 8 hotels were open throughout the quarter, generated $12.6 million of Hotel EBITDA, with an occupancy of 51.3 percent and an ADR of $302.78, a rate that was 10.3 percent higher than last year’s third quarter.

Estimated Monthly Cash Use

The Company estimates that its monthly cash use for the third quarter averaged approximately $18.0 million (excluding capital investments) based on the following:

  • Average hotel-level monthly cash use of approximately $6.0 million, excluding one-time expenses;
  • Corporate-level monthly G&A cash use of $2.0 million; and
  • Corporate finance-related monthly cash use of $10.0 million, which includes interest payments on the Company’s outstanding debt as well as both common and preferred dividend payments.

If the recovery continues, demand gradually improves, recently reopened hotel performance ramps up and additional hotels reopen, monthly cash use should continue to be reduced.

Capital Investments and Strategic Property Redevelopments

In the third quarter of 2020, the Company completed $20.8 million of capital investments throughout its portfolio. The Company has completed $110.4 million of capital investments and projects year to date through September 2020. The Company expects to invest an additional $15.0 to $20.0 million during the remainder of 2020.

The Company is excited to announce the redevelopment, transformation, and opening of Hotel Zena Washington DC on October 8, 2020. This groundbreaking hotel, dedicated to female empowerment, is the first of its kind. Hotel Zena Washington DC also marks the Company’s seventh hotel in its proprietary Unofficial Z Collection and the first on the East Coast. In addition to celebrating women’s accomplishments on the 100th anniversary of the Women’s Right to Vote, Hotel Zena Washington DC showcases a spectacular diverse art collection with over 60 gallery-quality art pieces commissioned specifically for this unique and powerful hotel.

Since the beginning of 2020, the Company has completed the transformational redevelopments of a number of hotels and resorts that were part of the LaSalle legacy portfolio acquired in late 2018, including Chaminade Resort & Spa, San Diego Mission Bay Resort (formerly Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa), Viceroy Washington DC (formerly Mason & Rook Hotel), Hotel Zena Washington DC (formerly Donovan Hotel), Viceroy Santa Monica Hotel and Le Parc Suite Hotel.

As a result of the Company’s extensive and comprehensive capital investments, redevelopments and transformations completed over the last few years, its portfolio is currently in outstanding condition. Over the last five years, 40 of the Company’s 53 hotels and resorts have completed transformational redevelopments or comprehensive renovations.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of September 30, 2020, the Company had $217.0 million of consolidated cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash in addition to $353.2 million of additional undrawn availability on its senior unsecured revolving credit facility, for a total of $570.2 million of liquidity. The Company had $2.4 billion in consolidated unsecured debt at an effective weighted-average interest rate of 3.8 percent. Approximately $1.7 billion, or 73 percent of the Company's total outstanding debt, was at a weighted-average fixed interest rate of 4.2 percent, and approximately $0.6 billion, or 27 percent, was at a weighted-average floating interest rate of 2.4 percent. Of the Company's outstanding debt, $2.0 billion was in the form of unsecured term loans, and $290.0 million was outstanding on its $650.0 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility. The Company has no material debt maturities until November 2022.

Common and Preferred Dividends

On September 15, 2020, the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.01 per share on its common shares as well as a regular quarterly cash dividend for the following preferred shares of beneficial interest:

  • $0.40625 per 6.50% Series C Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Share;
  • $0.39844 per 6.375% Series D Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Share;
  • $0.39844 per 6.375% Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Share; and
  • $0.39375 per 6.30% Series F Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Share.

Update on Strategic Dispositions

During the third quarter, the Company completed the sale of Union Station Hotel Nashville, Autograph Collection in Nashville, Tennessee for $56.0 million. In combination with the $331.0 million of hotel property sales from the first quarter of 2020, the Company has sold a total of $387.0 million of hotel properties year to date.

2020 Outlook

The Company continues to be unable to provide an outlook due to the uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It intends to issue new guidance when it has more clarity on government restrictions, advances in health solutions, the economy, travel demand, and more predictable overall operating fundamentals and trends.

This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures. 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 available to common share and unit holders for the following items, which may occur in any period, and refers to this measure as Adjusted FFO:

- Transaction costs: The Company excludes 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 or management agreements 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.
- 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.
- Non-cash interest expense, one-time operation suspension expenses, non-cash canceled share-based compensation and early extinguishment of debt: The Company excludes these items because the Company believes that including these 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.

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.

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. The Company adjusts EBITDAre for the following items, which may occur in any period, and refers to these measures as Adjusted EBITDAre:

- Transaction costs: The Company excludes transaction costs expensed during the period because it believes that including these costs in EBITDAre 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 EBITDAre does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company and its hotels.
- 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 or management agreements and above/below market real estate tax reduction agreements because it believes that including these non-cash adjustments in EBITDAre 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 EBITDAre 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.
- One-time operation suspension expenses and non-cash canceled share-based compensation: The Company excludes these items because it believes that including these costs in EBITDAre does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company and its hotels.

The Company’s presentation of EBITDAre, 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.

The EBITDA multiple and net operating capitalization rate are based on the applicable hotel's estimated trailing twelve-month operating performance for 2018. The net operating income capitalization rate is based on an assumed annual capital reserve of 4.0% of total hotel revenues. The EBITDA Multiple and net operating capitalization rate for Hotel Amarano Burbank reflect an estimated adjustment for the annualized impact of real estate taxes for California's Proposition 13 because the Company believes the adjusted hotel results for this period provide investors and analysts with an understanding of the hotel-level operating performance.

These hotel results for the respective periods may include information reflecting operational performance prior to the Company's ownership of the hotels. Any differences are a result of rounding.
