Chatham Lodging Trust Announces Third Quarter 2018 Results

RevPAR Growth Stronger than Expected, 2018 Guidance Mid-Point Raised

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 31, 2018-- Chatham Lodging Trust (NYSE:CLDT), a lodging real estate investment trust (REIT) that invests in upscale, extended-stay hotels and premium-branded, select-service hotels and owns 136 hotels wholly or through joint ventures, today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018. The company also provided updated guidance for 2018.

Third Quarter 2018 Key Metrics

  • Adjusted FFO - Rose $1.3 million, to $28.4 million, versus $27.0 million in the 2017 third quarter. Adjusted FFO per diluted share was $0.61, compared to guidance of $0.58-$0.62 per share.
  • Operating Margins - Experienced a 90-basis point decline to 48.1 percent in comparable gross operating profit margins. Comparable Hotel EBITDA margins were off 110 basis points to 41.3 percent, within guidance range of 41 to 42 percent.

RevPAR, ADR and occupancy for 2018 and 2017 are based on the company’s 40 comparable hotels owned as of September 30, 2018 ($ in millions, except per share, RevPAR, ADR, occupancy and margins):

  Three Months Ended       Nine Months Ended

2018   2017 2018   2017

Operating Results

“Our third quarter results finished at the upper end of our FFO per share guidance expectations,” said Jeffrey H. Fisher, Chatham’s president and chief executive officer. “This was driven by RevPAR growth above our guidance expectations, despite tough comparisons at our eight hotels in Houston, Dallas and Florida that benefitted from hurricane-related business in the last month of the 2017 third quarter. Continuing a trend, we see improving conditions in many of our markets.”

Chatham’s six largest markets comprise approximately 60 percent of its hotel EBITDA. Third quarter RevPAR performance for these key markets:

  • Silicon Valley RevPAR improved 1.5 percent to $205 at its four hotels.
  • RevPAR at its two San Diego hotels increased 2.2 percent.
  • Washington, D.C. RevPAR jumped 2.5 percent at its three hotels.
  • RevPAR at its three coastal hotels in Maine and New Hampshire advanced 4.1 percent.
  • At its four Houston hotels, RevPAR rose 2.5 percent.
  • Two Los Angeles-area hotels experienced a 3.3 percent RevPAR increase.

“We will continue to face tough RevPAR comps in the 2018 fourth quarter as we will be comparing to strong results in Texas and Florida due to hurricane-related business in 2017. We are encouraged that October RevPAR is forecast to rise approximately 3 percent,” Fisher commented.

Gross operating profit margins were down 90 basis points to 48.1 percent at its 40 comparable hotels, compared to the 2017 third quarter. The primary reason for the margin decline was increased payroll and benefit costs.

At its 37 comparable Island-managed hotels, which further excludes hotels acquired in 2018 and 2017, gross operating profit margins were down 60 basis points to 48.4 percent. On a per occupied room basis, payroll and benefits costs increased 3.6 percent in the quarter, and this reduced margins by 70 basis points.

“From a trend perspective, the increase in third quarter payroll and benefit costs was 60 basis points below the 4.2 percent increase we experienced throughout 2017. We feel the most significant increases are behind us,” said Dennis Craven, Chatham’s chief operating officer. “Additionally, on the revenue side, in collaboration with Island Hospitality, we are continuing to benefit from the implementation of other revenue initiatives and room revenue management strategies.

“On the macro level, new supply in our scale market tracts is up 2.1 percent for the last twelve months, which would be the lowest level for our portfolio since 2014. If GDP growth remains healthy, our portfolio is well-positioned to experience enhanced RevPAR growth,” Craven concluded.

Strategic Capital Recycling Program and Hotel Investments

In August 2018, Chatham acquired at opening the new 96-room Residence Inn Charleston Summerville, S.C., for $21 million. The hotel sits adjacent to the 96-room Courtyard by Marriott that Chatham acquired in 2017. These hotels are located in Nexton, an emerging, mixed-use community in the heart of a rapidly expanding area just outside of Charleston. The hotels are the highest quality and closest accommodations to Volvo’s first American factory, which is expected to open later this year. Additionally, and importantly for continued economic expansion in the area, Volvo already has announced plans to expand the facility with a second production line with completion estimated in 2020.

Chatham funded the purchase using available cash and borrowings on its unsecured credit facility. The hotel is managed by Island Hospitality Management, which is 51 percent owned by Fisher. Chatham estimates it acquired the property at a year two net operating income capitalization rate of approximately eight percent.

During the third quarter, the company substantially completed the renovations of the Residence Inn Mountain View, Calif. The company commenced the renovation of the Homewood Suites Dallas, Texas, in the third quarter and expects to complete those improvements in the fourth quarter. Chatham intends to invest approximately $25 million renovating and upgrading its hotels in 2018.

Capital Markets & Capital Structure

As of September 30, 2018, the company had net debt of $524.5 million (total consolidated debt less unrestricted cash). Total debt outstanding was $534.8 million at an average interest rate of 4.6 percent, comprised of $504.8 million of fixed-rate mortgage debt at an average interest rate of 4.7 percent and $30.0 million outstanding on the company’s $250 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility, which currently carries a 4.2 percent interest rate.

Chatham’s leverage ratio was approximately 32.6 percent on September 30, 2018, based on the ratio of the company’s net debt to hotel investments at cost. The weighted average maturity date for Chatham’s fixed-rate debt is February 2024, with the earliest maturity in 2021. As of September 30, 2018, Chatham’s proportionate share of joint venture debt and unrestricted cash was $165.4 million and $3.1 million, respectively. At Chatham’s current leverage level, the borrowing cost under the new facility is LIBOR plus 1.65 percent.

On September 30, 2018, as defined in the company’s credit agreement, Chatham’s fixed charge coverage ratio, including its interest in the two joint ventures with Colony NorthStar, was 3.3 times, and total net debt to trailing 12-month corporate EBITDA was 5.3 times. Excluding its interest in the two joint ventures, Chatham’s fixed charge coverage ratio was 3.6 times, and net debt to trailing 12-month corporate EBITDA was 4.7 times.

“During the quarter, we reduced our net debt by $0.4 million, bringing the year-to-date reduction to $6.6 million and lowered our leverage ratio to 33 percent,” remarked Jeremy Wegner, Chatham’s chief financial officer. “Our strategy remains to effectively recycle capital and be a net acquirer of assets in 2018. Year-to-date, we have not sold any hotels and acquired one hotel for $21 million. We will continue to harvest cash flow from operations and distributions from our joint ventures to reduce our net debt until we deploy capital into more accretive hotel investments.”

Joint Venture Investments

During the 2018 third quarter, the Innkeepers and Inland joint ventures contributed Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO of approximately $4.9 million and $2.5 million, respectively, compared to 2017 third quarter Adjusted EBITDA and FFO of approximately $4.9 million and $2.9 million, respectively. Both Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO were within the company’s previous guidance for the quarter. The decrease in adjusted FFO is attributable to increased interest expense driven by rising LIBOR borrowing rates.

Chatham received distributions from its joint venture investments of $1.4 million during the 2018 third quarter.

Dividend

Chatham currently pays a monthly dividend of $0.11 per common share. Chatham’s 2018 dividend per share of $1.32 represents approximately 69 percent of its 2018 adjusted FFO per share, based on the midpoint of its guidance for 2018.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Included in this press release are certain “non-GAAP financial measures,” within the meaning of Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules and regulations, that are different from measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles). The company considers the following non-GAAP financial measures useful to investors as key supplemental measures of its operating performance: (1) FFO, (2) Adjusted FFO, (3) EBITDA, (5) EBITDAre (6) Adjusted EBITDA and (7) Adjusted Hotel EBITDA. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered along with, but not as alternatives to, net income or loss as prescribed by GAAP as a measure of its operating performance.

FFO As Defined by NAREIT and Adjusted FFO

The company calculates FFO in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), which defines FFO as net income or loss (calculated in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains or losses from sales of real estate, impairment write-downs, the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles, plus depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs), and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures following the same approach. The company believes that the presentation of FFO provides useful information to investors regarding its operating performance because it measures its performance without regard to specified non-cash items such as real estate depreciation and amortization, gain or loss on sale of real estate assets and certain other items that the company believes are not indicative of the property level performance of its hotel properties. The company believes that these items reflect historical cost of its asset base and its acquisition and disposition activities and are less reflective of its ongoing operations, and that by adjusting to exclude the effects of these items, FFO is useful to investors in comparing its operating performance between periods and between REITs that also report using the NAREIT definition.

The company calculates Adjusted FFO by further adjusting FFO for certain additional items that are not addressed in NAREIT’s definition of FFO, including other charges, losses on the early extinguishment of debt and similar items related to its unconsolidated real estate entities that it believes do not represent costs related to hotel operations. The company believes that Adjusted FFO provides investors with another financial measure that may facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs that make similar adjustments to FFO.

EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA

The company calculates EBITDA for purposes of the credit facility debt as net income or loss excluding: (1) interest expense; (2) provision for income taxes, including income taxes applicable to sale of assets; (3) depreciation and amortization; and (4) unconsolidated real estate entity items including interest, depreciation and amortization excluding gains and losses from sales of real estate. The company believes EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating and facilitating comparisons of its operating performance because it helps investors compare the company’s operating performance between periods and between REITs by removing the impact of its capital structure (primarily interest expense) and asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from its operating results. In addition, the company uses EBITDA as one measure in determining the value of hotel acquisitions and dispositions.

The company calculates EBITDAre in accordance with NAREIT guidelines, which defines EBITDAre as net income or loss excluding interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, gains or losses from sales of real estate, impairment, and adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures. We believe that the presentation of EBITDAre provides useful information to investors regarding the Company's operating performance and can facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs.

The company calculates Adjusted EBITDA by further adjusting EBITDA for certain additional items, including other charges, losses on the early extinguishment of debt, amortization of non-cash share-based compensation and similar items related to its unconsolidated real estate entities, which it believes are not indicative of the performance of its underlying hotel properties entities. The company believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides investors with another financial measure that may facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs that report similar measures.

Adjusted Hotel EBITDA is defined as net income before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, corporate general and administrative, impairment loss, loss on early extinguishment of debt, interest and other income and income or loss from unconsolidated real estate entities. The Company presents Adjusted Hotel EBITDA because the Company believes it is useful to investors in comparing its hotel operating performance between periods and comparing its Adjusted Hotel EBITDA margins to those of our peer companies. Adjusted Hotel EBITDA represents the results of operations for its wholly owned hotels only.

Although the company presents FFO, Adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA because it believes they are useful to investors in comparing the company’s operating performance between periods and between REITs that report similar measures, these measures have limitations as analytical tools. Some of these limitations are:

  • FFO, Adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA do not reflect the company’s cash expenditures, or future requirements, for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • FFO, Adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the company’s working capital needs;
  • FFO, Adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA do not reflect funds available to make cash distributions;
  • EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA do not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on the company’s debts;
  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may need to be replaced in the future, and FFO, Adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
  • Non-cash compensation is and will remain a key element of the company’s overall long-term incentive compensation package, although the company excludes it as an expense when evaluating its ongoing operating performance for a particular period using adjusted EBITDA;
  • Adjusted FFO, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA do not reflect the impact of certain cash charges (including acquisition transaction costs) that result from matters the company considers not to be indicative of the underlying performance of its hotel properties; and
  • Other companies in the company’s industry may calculate FFO, Adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA differently than the company does, limiting their usefulness as a comparative measure.

In addition, FFO, Adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA do not represent cash generated from operating activities as determined by GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income or loss, cash flows from operations or any other operating performance measure prescribed by GAAP. FFO, Adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA are not measures of the Company’s liquidity. Because of these limitations, FFO, Adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on its GAAP results and using FFO, Adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA only supplementally. The Company’s consolidated financial statements and the notes to those statements included elsewhere are prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The company’s reconciliation of FFO, Adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA to net income attributable to common shareholders, as determined under GAAP, is set forth below.
