Capital Investment

“During the third quarter, we acquired our second property in Houston and our first hotel in the vibrant capital of Texas and home to our corporate office, Austin,” Hansen said. “We have now closed on 49 acquisitions totaling $1.0 billion since our 2011 IPO. The transformation of our portfolio through premium acquisitions, calculated dispositions and accretive capital improvements has allowed us to increase our revenues, generate better margins and grow shareholder value.”

Acquisitions

During the third quarter of 2014, the Company acquired two hotels for a total purchase price of $89.0 million, the 190-guestroom Hilton Garden Inn located in Houston (Energy Corridor), Texas and the 209-guestroom Hampton Inn & Suites located in Austin, Texas.

Pro forma RevPAR among the 25 hotels acquired since January 2013 was $117.15 in the third quarter of 2014 compared to $89.67 for the 66 hotels classified as same-store during the period.

Renovation Capital

The Company invested $7.3 million in renovations in the third quarter of 2014. Among the properties renovated during the quarter, the scope of work ranged from common space improvements to complete guestroom renovations, including furniture, soft goods and guest bathrooms.

“We have invested over $30 million in capital improvements on our portfolio during the first nine months of 2014 and are thrilled with the strong outperformance we are seeing among our hotels,” commented Hansen. “Our premier asset management team was very pro-active early in the cycle recognizing opportunities to improve our portfolio and has done a terrific job of integrating acquisitions while identifying strategic opportunities for continued growth.”

Balance Sheet and Capital Activity

At September 30, 2014, the Company had the following:

  • Total outstanding debt of $624.3 million, with a weighted average interest rate of 4.40 percent, and $34.8 million of cash and cash equivalents. The Company’s maximum borrowing capacity was $300.0 million under the senior unsecured credit facility, including both the revolver and term portions of the facility.
  • $203.0 million outstanding on its senior unsecured credit facility, $13.8 million in standby letters of credit and $83.2 million available to borrow.
  • Total net debt, which the Company defines as total outstanding debt less cash and cash equivalents, to trailing twelve month adjusted EBITDA was 4.9x.

As of October 31, 2014, the Company has $195.0 million outstanding on its senior unsecured credit facility, $13.8 million in standby letters of credit and $91.2 million available to borrow.

Dividends

On October 31, 2014, the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of:

  • $0.1175 per share on its common stock and per common unit of limited partnership interest in Summit Hotel OP, LP, the Company’s operating partnership.
  • $0.578125 per share on its 9.25 percent Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock.

The dividends are payable November 28, 2014 to holders of record as of November 14, 2014.

Subsequent Events

  • On October 21, 2014, the Company sold the 126-guestroom Country Inn & Suites located in San Antonio, Texas for $7.9 million, which included 5.64 acres of vacant land owned by the Company. Proceeds were used to pay down the balance on the Company’s senior unsecured credit facility.

2014 Outlook

“We expect the strong industry fundamentals that we have seen in the first nine months of 2014 to continue through the remainder of the year and into 2015,” commented Hansen. “The continued growth in occupancy throughout our portfolio to this point in the cycle gives us confidence in an elongated cycle and our ability to drive rate growth. While we expect to see some disruption in the fourth quarter due to renovations, we have raised the low-end of our full year RevPAR guidance for both pro forma and same-store by 250 and 300 basis points, respectively. We have also raised the high-end of our guidance by 150 basis points for pro forma and 200 basis points for same-store RevPAR growth.”

The Company is providing guidance for the fourth quarter and full year 2014 based on 90 current hotels.¹ Except as described in footnote one below, the guidance assumes no additional hotels are acquired or sold and no additional issuances of equity securities.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

FFO and Adjusted FFO (“AFFO”)

As defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), funds from operations (“FFO”) represents net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, impairment, items classified by GAAP as extraordinary, the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles, plus depreciation and amortization, and adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. 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 differs from the NAREIT definition and 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 these non-GAAP measures in the same manner. FFO and AFFO should be considered along with, but not as an alternative to, net income (loss) as a measure of our 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, these non-GAAP financial measures are not necessarily better indicators 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.
