Pebblebrook Hotel Trust Executes Contract to Sell Hotel Zoe Fisherman’s Wharf

Company Release - 10/16/2023

Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (NYSE: PEB) (the “Company”) announced today that it executed a contract to sell the 221-room Hotel Zoe Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, California for $68.5 million to a third party. The property sale is subject to normal closing conditions. The Company offers no assurances that the sale will be completed on these terms or at all. The sale is targeted to be completed later in the fourth quarter of 2023.

For the trailing twelve months ended September 30, 2023, the hotel’s net loss is estimated at ($1.2) million, its net operating income is estimated at $2.2 million, and its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) is estimated at $2.7 million. The $68.5 million sales price reflects a 25.0x EBITDA multiple and a 3.2% net operating income capitalization rate (assuming a capital reserve of 4.0% of total hotel revenues).

Proceeds from the sale of Hotel Zoe Fisherman’s Wharf will be used for general corporate purposes, including reducing the Company’s outstanding debt and repurchasing the Company’s common and preferred shares.

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 U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the hotel’s results of operations determined in accordance with GAAP.

The Company has presented estimated trailing twelve-month hotel EBITDA and estimated trailing twelve-month hotel net operating income after capital reserves because it believes these measures provide investors and analysts with an understanding of the hotel-level operating performance. These non-GAAP measures do 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 are they indicative of funds available to fund the Company’s cash needs, including its ability to make distributions.

The Company’s presentation of the hotel’s estimated trailing twelve-month EBITDA and estimated trailing twelve-month net operating income after capital reserves should not be considered as an alternative to net income (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of the hotel’s financial performance. The table above is a reconciliation of the hotel’s estimated trailing twelve-month EBITDA and net operating income after capital reserves calculations to net income in accordance with GAAP. Any differences are a result of rounding.
