"Demand for hotels and travel in general clearly bottomed in mid-April. Throughout the rest of the quarter, hotel industry demand gradually and consistently improved each month as states and cities reopened and began to ease restrictive mandates. While the recent uptick in COVID cases and the resulting pullback of city reopenings have caused demand growth to flatten out, we’re still seeing an uptick in the leisure segment, benefitting our drive-to resorts, which have been experiencing a healthy recovery in operating performance that has generally improved each week. Encouragingly, our resorts have been generating average rates above the prior-year period, and hotel demand in our urban markets has been gradually recovering as well. As a result, we have reopened an additional 10 urban hotels and expect to reopen another 5 in the next several weeks. All of this positive progress, albeit slow and gradual, has enabled us to materially reduce our monthly cash burn and improve our liquidity during this unprecedented period. We’re also excited to announce the successful completion of the transformational redevelopments of Hotel Zena Washington DC, Le Parc West Hollywood, San Diego Mission Bay Resort, Viceroy Hotel Washington DC, Chaminade Resort in Santa Cruz, and Viceroy Santa Monica Hotel. These comprehensive redevelopments will allow these properties to achieve much better performance as they ramp up over the next few years."

-Jon E. Bortz, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust

"Our hotel teams and operating partners, working closely with our asset managers, were incredibly successful mitigating our operating losses and reducing our cash burn across the portfolio in an extremely challenging operating environment during the second quarter,” noted Mr. Bortz. “Fortunately, leisure demand is returning, and our resorts in San Diego, Naples, Key West and the Pacific Northwest, in particular, are recovering. Combined with the reopening and gradual recovery of our urban hotels, we expect our monthly cash burn rates to continue to decline during the third quarter, assuming mandated governmental restrictions don’t go materially backward. In addition, we continue to evolve and adapt our hotel operating strategies due to the pandemic and changes in guests' preferences. The safety of our guests and hotel-level team members remains a top priority as we institute new best practices and procedures that are significantly improving our operations by creating efficiencies in this new environment."

Estimated Monthly Cash Use

The Company estimates that its monthly cash use for May and June averaged approximately $22.5 million (excluding capital investments) based on the following:

  • Average hotel-level monthly cash use of approximately $10.5 million, excluding one-time expenses;
  • Corporate-level monthly G&A cash use of $2 million; and
  • Corporate finance-related monthly cash use of $10 million, which includes interest payments on the Company’s outstanding debt as well as both common and preferred dividend payments.

Assuming the recovery continues, the reopening of additional hotels and gradual improvement in demand should result in a reduction in monthly cash use.

Capital Investments and Strategic Property Redevelopments

In the second quarter of 2020, the Company completed $39.5 million of capital investments throughout its portfolio. The Company has completed $89.6 million of capital investments and projects year to date through June 2020, which includes the completed renovations of The Westin San Diego Gaslamp Quarter and Embassy Suites San Diego Bay – Downtown. The Company expects to invest an additional $35.0 to $40.0 million during the remainder of 2020. The Company substantially completed the following major redevelopments in the second quarter, or shortly thereafter:

  • Donovan Hotel(estimated at $25.0 million, or approximately $130 thousand per key), which encompassed an exhaustive redevelopment and repositioning that is now substantially complete, will be relaunched as Hotel Zena Washington DC, the seventh member of "The Unofficial Z Collection," the Company's proprietary brand of individually curated, unique urban lifestyle hotels;
  • Viceroy Santa Monica Hotel (estimated at $10.5 million), which involved an exhaustive public area transformation, including the porte-cochere, lobby, pool, restaurant, bar and meeting space renovation, featuring both interior and exterior enhancements, along with the addition of seven keys, that is now substantially complete; and
  • Mason & Rook Hotel (estimated at $8.0 million), which underwent a complete renovation and upgrading of the entry, lobby, guestrooms, restaurant and bar areas, rooftop pool, and its meeting spaces, that is now substantially complete, and upon its expected reopening next week, will be rebranded as the Viceroy Washington DC.

Since the beginning of 2020, the Company has completed the transformational redevelopments of a number of hotels 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. The Company has also continued to progress on design, planning and permitting work for the future transformational redevelopments of Paradise Point Resort & Spa into the Margaritaville Island Resort San Diego, Hotel Vitale into 1 Hotel San Francisco, The Marker San Francisco into an “Unofficial Z Collection” hotel and Villa Florence San Francisco on Union Square into The Lydon Hotel.

The Company’s portfolio is currently in superb condition. Over the last 5 years, 40 of the Company’s 53 hotels and resorts have completed transformational redevelopments or comprehensive renovations.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of June 30, 2020, the Company had $352.8 million of consolidated cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash in addition to $253.2 million of additional undrawn availability on its senior unsecured revolving credit facility, for a total of $606.0 million of liquidity. This does not include the net proceeds from the $56.0 million sale of Union Station Hotel Nashville, Autograph Collection, which transacted yesterday. The Company had $2.5 billion in consolidated unsecured debt at an effective weighted-average interest rate of 3.7 percent. Approximately $1.7 billion, or 70 percent of the Company's total outstanding debt, was at a weighted-average fixed interest rate of 4.2 percent, and approximately $0.7 billion, or 30 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 $390.0 million was outstanding on its $650.0 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility.

On July 1, 2020, the Company announced that it successfully amended the agreements governing its outstanding debt, including its $650.0 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility, $2.0 billion of term loans and working capital facilities, and $100.0 million private placement senior notes. As a result, the Company paid down $253.2 million of the credit facility with cash on hand. The unused capacity on the credit facility remains available for use by the Company. In addition, $242.6 million of the Company’s $300.0 million November 2021 debt maturity was extended to November 2022. The Company’s amended credit agreements and related documents waive existing financial covenants through the end of the first quarter of 2021 and provide substantially less restrictive covenants until the third quarter of 2022. The amendment also provides the Company with enhanced flexibility to complete property renovations, acquisitions, and other investments during the waiver period.

Common and Preferred Dividends

On June 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

On July 29, 2020, 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 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.

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.

The information above has not been audited and is presented only for comparison purposes.
