Dispositions

During 2014, the Company sold four hotels with a total of 450 guestrooms and three parcels of land for a total sales price of $19.8 million.

“The nearly 32.0 percent premium reflected in the RevPAR of our acquisition hotels highlights the increasing quality of our portfolio,” Hansen said. “Our ability to source high quality acquisitions in today’s competitive market and dispose of less strategic assets has been a key in the successful transformation of our portfolio and has allowed us to enhance shareholder value.”

Capital Investment

The Company invested $5.5 million and $35.6 million in renovations during the fourth quarter and full year 2014, respectively. Among the properties renovated during the year, the scope of work ranged from common space improvements to complete guestroom renovations, including furniture, soft goods and guest bathrooms. These renovations also included the addition of 15 guestrooms to better utilize existing space.

In addition, the Company capitalized $6.9 million of other capital improvements at its hotels in 2014.

“Throughout 2014 we continued to successfully execute our strategy to invest in our properties through a detailed and well thought out renovation process. Our team has been a terrific steward of capital and has worked closely with our third party management teams to continue to share best practices to improve operating efficiencies, evidenced by our RevPAR growth, improved margins and increasing AFFO on a per share basis by 20.3 percent in 2014,” commented Hansen.

Balance Sheet and Capital Activity

At December 31, 2014, the Company had the following:

  • Total outstanding debt of $626.5 million, with a weighted average interest rate of 4.35 percent, and $38.6 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 with $200.0 million outstanding, $13.8 million in standby letters of credit and $86.2 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 4.6x.

Dividends

On January 30, 2015, 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.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Funds From Operations (“FFO”) and Adjusted FFO (“AFFO”)

As defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), 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, 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 investors 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 these non-GAAP measures 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, these non-GAAP financial measures are 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 and adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, which is net income (loss). Because hotel EBITDA is specific to individual hotels or groups of hotels and not to the Company as a whole, it is not directly comparable to any GAAP measure. Accordingly, hotel EBITDA has not been reconciled back to net income or loss, or any other GAAP measure, and hotel EBITDA should not be relied on as a measure of performance for our portfolio of hotels taken as a whole. Dollar amounts in such reconciliation are in thousands.
