Park Hotels & Resorts Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2017 Results

MCLEAN, Va.--()--Park Hotels & Resorts Inc. (“Park” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PK) today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017. Highlights include:

Second Quarter 2017 Operating Results

  • Comparable RevPAR was $170.35, a decrease of 0.2% on a Pro-forma basis from the same period in 2016; without San Francisco hotels, Comparable RevPAR increased 1.7%;
  • Net income was $115 million;
  • Net income attributable to stockholders was $112 million;
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $217 million;
  • Adjusted FFO attributable to stockholders was $173 million;
  • Diluted earnings per share was $0.52;
  • Diluted Adjusted FFO per share was $0.81; and
  • Comparable Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin was 29.2%, a decrease of 110 bps on a Pro-forma basis from the same period in 2016; San Francisco hotels contributed to 70 bps of the decline.

Thomas J. Baltimore, Jr., Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are pleased with our operating results despite the challenges experienced this quarter, which were not unexpected with soft group demand partially offset by continued strength in the leisure segment. We remain optimistic about our future growth prospects and our portfolio has one of the lowest exposures to new supply over the next two years with markets like Hawaii, San Francisco, Orlando and Key West all well below the industry average. Combined with increasing demand in these same markets and a return of city wide events in San Francisco upon the re-opening of the Moscone Convention Center in 2018 and 2019, we believe the near-term fundamentals favor outperformance for our portfolio of iconic assets. Moreover, our team continues to make great progress against our goals to shift our group mix, improve margins, recycle capital and execute on our near-term ROI projects.”

2017 Second Quarter Operating Results: Total Consolidated Comparable Hotels

Comparable RevPAR decreased 0.2% for the quarter and increased 0.5% year-to-date, on a Pro-forma basis, due to decreases in occupancy, offset by increases in rate, as compared to the same periods in 2016. Highlights from some of Park’s markets and segments:

  • Florida: RevPAR growth of 4.9% for the quarter and 2.9% year-to-date, with increases in both rate and occupancy from strong leisure demand;
  • Hawaii: RevPAR growth of 3.0% for the quarter and 3.5% year-to-date, due to increases in rate driven by an increase in group business;
  • Northern California: RevPAR decline of 7.6% for the quarter and 5.1% year-to-date, with decreases in both rate and occupancy, primarily attributable to ongoing renovations at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco coupled with the Super Bowl taking place in San Francisco in February 2016; and
  • Group / Transient: group rooms revenue decreased by 6.3% for the quarter, partially offset by transient revenue growth of 2.8%, while both group and transient revenues were relatively flat year-to-date; partially attributable to the Easter shift and ongoing renovations at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.

2017 Second Quarter Operating Results: Top 10 Hotels

RevPAR for Park’s Top 10 Hotels, which accounts for approximately 64% of Hotel Adjusted EBITDA, declined 2.8% for the quarter and 0.6% year-to-date, on a Pro-forma basis, due to decreases in occupancy and rate, as compared to the same period in 2016. Within the Top 10 Hotels:

  • Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort: RevPAR growth of 3.0% for the quarter and 3.5% year-to-date, due to an increase in rates from a rise in group demand;
  • New York Hilton Midtown: RevPAR decline of 3.9% for the quarter and 1.1% year-to-date, due to ongoing renovations;
  • Hilton San Francisco Union Square / Parc 55 San Francisco – a Hilton Hotel: RevPAR decline of 12.5% and 11.5%, respectively, for the quarter, and 10.3% and 3.9%, respectively, year-to-date, due to ongoing renovations at the Moscone Convention Center and a tough comparable period in 2017 due to the Super Bowl in 2016;
  • Hilton Waikoloa Village: RevPAR growth of 2.5% for the quarter and year-to-date, due to strong leisure demand;
  • Hilton New Orleans Riverside: RevPAR decline of 6.2% for the quarter and 2.3% year-to-date, due to a decrease in city wide events as compared to the prior year;
  • Hilton Chicago: RevPAR growth of 0.9% for the quarter due to improved revenue management strategies and growth of 5.6% year-to-date due to strong group demand;
  • Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek / Waldorf Astoria Orlando: RevPAR growth of 4.8% and 4.5%, respectively, for the quarter, and 6.8% and 0.6%, respectively, year-to-date, due to strong leisure demand; and

PARK HOTELS & RESORTS INC.
DEFINITIONS

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA Margin

Earnings before interest expense, taxes and depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), presented herein, reflects net income (loss), excluding interest expense, interest income, a provision for income taxes and depreciation and amortization. The Company considers EBITDA to be a useful measure for investors in evaluating and facilitating comparisons of its operating performance between periods and between REITs by removing the impact of the Company’s capital structure (primarily interest expense) and asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from its operating results.

Adjusted EBITDA, presented herein, is calculated as EBITDA, as previously defined, further adjusted to exclude:

  • Gains or losses on sales of assets for both consolidated and unconsolidated investments;
  • Gains or losses on foreign currency transactions
  • Transition costs related to the Company’s establishment as an independent, publicly traded company;
  • Share-based compensation expense;
  • Non-cash impairment losses; and
  • Other gains and losses that management believes are not representative of the Company’s current or future operating performance.

Hotel Adjusted EBITDA measures hotel-level results before debt service, depreciation and corporate expenses of the Company’s consolidated hotels, including both comparable and non-comparable hotels but excluding hotels owned by unconsolidated affiliates, and is a key measure of the Company’s profitability. The Company presents Hotel Adjusted EBITDA to help the Company and its investors evaluate the ongoing operating performance of the Company’s consolidated hotels.

Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin, is calculated as Hotel Adjusted EBITDA divided by total hotel revenue.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin are not recognized terms under United States (“U.S.”) GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss) or other measures of financial performance or liquidity derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the Company’s definitions of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

The Company believes that EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin provide useful information to investors about the Company and its financial condition and results of operations for the following reasons: (i) EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin are among the measures used by the Company’s management team to evaluate its operating performance and make day-to-day operating decisions; and (ii) EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a common performance measure to compare results or estimate valuations across companies in the industry.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered either in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss) or other methods of analyzing the Company’s operating performance and results as reported under U.S. GAAP.

NAREIT FFO attributable to stockholders, Adjusted FFO attributable to stockholders NAREIT FFO per share - diluted and Adjusted FFO per share - diluted

NAREIT FFO attributable to stockholders, presented herein, is calculated as net income (loss) attributable to stockholders (calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP), excluding gains or losses from sales of real estate, impairment, the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles, plus depreciation and amortization and adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures are calculated to reflect the Company’s pro rata share of the FFO of those entities on the same basis. The Company calculates NAREIT FFO attributable to stockholders for a given operating period in accordance with the guidelines of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”). As noted by NAREIT in its April 2002 “White Paper on Funds From Operations,” since real estate values historically have risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors have considered presentation of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by themselves. For these reasons, NAREIT adopted the FFO metric in order to promote an industry-wide measure of REIT operating performance.

Adjusted FFO attributable to stockholders, presented herein, is NAREIT FFO attributable to stockholders, as previously defined, further adjusted to exclude:

  • Gains or losses on foreign currency transactions;
  • Transition costs related to Park’s establishment as an independent, publicly traded company;
  • Share-based compensation expense;
  • Litigation gains and losses outside the ordinary course of business; and
  • Other gains and losses that management believes are not representative of the Company’s current or future operating performance.

NAREIT FFO attributable to stockholders and Adjusted FFO attributable to stockholders are not recognized terms under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss) or other measures of financial performance or liquidity derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the Company’s definitions of NAREIT FFO attributable to stockholders and Adjusted FFO attributable to stockholders may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

The Company believes that NAREIT FFO attributable to stockholders and Adjusted FFO attributable to stockholders, provide useful information to investors about the Company and its financial condition and results of operations for the following reasons: (i) these measures are among the measures used by the Company’s management team to evaluate its operating performance and make day-to-day operating decisions; and (ii) these measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a common performance measure to compare results or estimate valuations across companies in the industry.

NAREIT FFO attributable to stockholders and Adjusted FFO attributable to stockholders have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered either in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss), cash flow or other methods of analyzing results as reported under U.S. GAAP.

NAREIT FFO per share – diluted, presented herein, is calculated as the Company’s NAREIT FFO, as previously defined, divided by the number of fully diluted shares outstanding during a period.

Adjusted FFO per share – diluted, presented herein, is Adjusted FFO per share, as previously defined, divided by the number of fully diluted shares outstanding during a period.

Occupancy

Occupancy represents the total number of room nights sold divided by the total number of room nights available at a hotel or group of hotels. Occupancy measures the utilization of the Company’s hotels’ available capacity. Management uses occupancy to gauge demand at a specific hotel or group of hotels in a given period. Occupancy levels also help management determine achievable Average Daily Rate (“ADR”) levels as demand for rooms increases or decreases.

Average Daily Rate

ADR represents rooms revenue divided by total number of room nights sold in a given period. ADR measures average room price attained by a hotel and ADR trends provide useful information concerning the pricing environment and the nature of the customer base of a hotel or group of hotels. ADR is a commonly used performance measure in the hotel industry, and management uses ADR to assess pricing levels that the Company is able to generate by type of customer, as changes in rates have a more pronounced effect on overall revenues and incremental profitability than changes in occupancy, as described above.

Revenue per Available Room

Revenue per Available Room (“RevPAR”) represents rooms revenue divided by total number of room nights available to guests for a given period. Management considers RevPAR to be a meaningful indicator of the Company’s performance as it provides a metric correlated to two primary and key factors of operations at a hotel or group of hotels: occupancy and ADR. RevPAR is also a useful indicator in measuring performance over comparable periods for comparable hotels.

References to RevPAR and ADR are presented on a currency neutral basis (prior periods are reflected using current period exchange rates), unless otherwise noted.

Comparable Hotels

The Company presents certain data for its hotels on a comparable hotel basis as supplemental information for investors. The Company defines its comparable hotels as those that: (i) were active and operating in its system since January 1st of the previous year; and (ii) have not sustained substantial property damage, business interruption, undergone large-scale capital projects or for which comparable results are not available. The Company presents comparable hotel results to help the Company and its investors evaluate the ongoing operating performance of its comparable hotels. Due to the conversion, or planned conversions, of a significant number of rooms at the Hilton Waikoloa Village in 2017 and Embassy Suites Washington D.C. Georgetown in 2016 to HGV timeshare units, the results from these properties were excluded from comparable hotels. Park’s comparable hotels as of June 30, 2016 also exclude the DoubleTree Hotel Missoula/Edgewater and the Hilton Templepatrick Hotel & Country Club, as these hotels were not retained by us as part of the spin-off.
