The health and safety of our guests and associates is our first priority and we send our sincere condolences to those who have been impacted. While we expect the economy and travel demand will ultimately recover, the timing and shape of the recovery remains unclear. Accordingly, we moved quickly to enhance liquidity by building cash, reducing corporate expenses and suspending operations at two-thirds of our hotels. We remain focused on the future and have developed hotel reopening plans, while reassessing operating procedures to be able to safely and profitably welcome back hotel employees and guests when travel demand begins to slowly return in the coming months."

COVID-19 Pandemic

In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. The pandemic has reduced travel and adversely affected the hospitality industry in general.  There has been a significant reduction to lodging demand generators, including city-wide conferences, sporting and entertainment events, corporate and leisure travel, and overall domestic airlift capacity. Consumer spending decreased in March 2020 and the Company expects further decreases into the second quarter of 2020.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company has taken the following aggressive actions at the property and corporate levels.

  • In coordination with its hotel operators, the Company suspended operations at 20 of its hotels throughout March and April 2020 and the operations of these hotels remain suspended as of May 11, 2020. The Company maintains a limited staffing presence at these hotels, such as security and engineering personnel.
  • The Company has developed and implemented action plans with its hotel operators to significantly reduce operating costs at each of its hotels.
  • The Company is cultivating alternative demand for its hotels, including by accommodating first responders, health care providers and quarantined military personnel.
  • The Company has reduced corporate expenses through decreases in executive compensation, employee headcount and other expenses.
  • The Company has canceled or deferred over 70% of its capital expenditures planned for the remainder of 2020.
  • The Company has paused the rebuild of Frenchman's Reef, which the Company had expected to open as two separate hotels in late 2020.
  • The Company has suspended its quarterly dividend commencing with the first quarter dividend that would have been paid in April 2020. The Company expects to pay a dividend in January 2021 sufficient to cover 100% of its taxable income, if any, for the year ending December 31, 2020.
  • The Company fully drew down its $400 million senior unsecured credit facility to enhance its liquidity. As of March 31, 2020, the Company had unrestricted cash of approximately $387.8 million.
  • The Company is working with its lenders to provide flexibility on certain financial covenants under its senior unsecured credit facility and unsecured term loans. The Company has a term sheet for an amendment to its credit agreements that provides for covenant waivers through March 31, 2021 and certain other modifications thereafter.

The timing of re-opening these hotels will depend primarily on federal, state, and local government guidance, health official recommendations and market demand. The Company currently anticipates phased re-openings will start for the majority of these hotels this summer.  The Company expects lodging demand will first return for the leisure segment, followed by business transient and then by the group segment. As demand slowly returns, the Company will continue to aggressively asset manage its hotels and carefully assess staffing needs, cleanliness and safety protocols, business mix and other initiatives.

Capital Expenditures

The Company invested approximately $19.6 million in capital improvements at its operating hotels during the three months ended March 31, 2020. Additionally, the Company spent approximately $29.2 million on the rebuild of Frenchman's Reef during the three months ended March 31, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company has canceled or deferred a significant portion of the planned capital improvements at its operating hotels.  The Company currently expects to spend approximately $45 million on capital improvements at its operating hotels during 2020. The Company has paused the rebuild of Frenchman's Reef and currently expects construction to resume in 2021.

Balance Sheet

As of March 31, 2020, the Company had $387.8 million of unrestricted cash on hand and approximately $1.4 billion of total debt, which consisted of property-specific mortgage debt, $400.0 million of unsecured term loans and the Company has drawn all of its $400.0 million senior unsecured credit facility.  The Company fully drew down its senior unsecured credit facility in March 2020 to preserve its liquidity until there is visibility on the depth and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic and demand improves.  The Company has only one debt maturity in 2020, which is the mortgage loan secured by the Marriott Salt Lake City Downtown in the amount of $52.0 million. The Company has agreed to a term sheet to extend the maturity of this loan from November 2020 to January 2022, subject to due diligence and other customary conditions.

Although the Company is in compliance with the financial covenants of its debt as of March 31, 2020, the Company has determined that it is probable the dramatic decline in hotel earnings as a result of the impact on demand from COVID-19 will lead to its inability to comply with certain financial covenants under the credit agreements for its senior unsecured credit facility and unsecured term loans beginning with the quarter ending June 30, 2020.  The Company is in negotiations with its lenders to obtain waivers prior to any violations.  As of May 11, 2020, the Company has a term sheet for an amendment to its credit agreements that provides for covenant waivers through the first calendar quarter of 2021 and certain other modifications thereafter.  The Company expects the amendment to be executed prior to any covenant violation, although it can provide no assurances that such amendment will be executed.

The Company has evaluated the current business environment and its effect on the Company's results of operations, the actions it has taken and the other options available and has determined that the Company has sufficient liquidity in the event of a prolonged decline in hotel demand without additional equity or debt financing or property sales.

Share Repurchase Program

During the quarter, the Company repurchased 1.1 million shares of its common stock at an average price of $8.91 per share. These shares were all repurchased prior to March 4, 2020. The Company has suspended repurchases and anticipates the suspension will remain in effect for the remainder of 2020.

Guidance

Given the high level of uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on hotel demand, the Company previously withdrew full year 2020 guidance originally issued on February 20, 2020 and is not providing updated guidance at this time.

Earnings Call

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use the following non-GAAP financial measures that we believe are useful to investors as key measures of our operating performance: EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA, FFO and Adjusted FFO. These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA, FFO and Adjusted FFO, as calculated by us, may not be comparable to other companies that do not define such terms exactly as the Company.

Use and Limitations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our management and Board of Directors use EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA, FFO and Adjusted FFO to evaluate the performance of our hotels and to facilitate comparisons between us and other lodging REITs, hotel owners who are not REITs and other capital intensive companies. The use of these non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations. These non-GAAP financial measures as presented by us, may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures as calculated by other real estate companies. These measures do not reflect certain expenses or expenditures that we incurred and will incur, such as depreciation, interest and capital expenditures. We compensate for these limitations by separately considering the impact of these excluded items to the extent they are material to operating decisions or assessments of our operating performance. Our reconciliations to the most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures, and our consolidated statements of operations and cash flows, include interest expense, capital expenditures, and other excluded items, all of which should be considered when evaluating our performance, as well as the usefulness of our non-GAAP financial measures.

These non-GAAP financial measures are used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. They should not be considered as alternatives to operating profit, cash flow from operations, or any other operating performance measure prescribed by U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect additional ways of viewing our operations that we believe, when viewed with our U.S. GAAP results and the reconciliations to the corresponding U.S. GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. We strongly encourage investors to review our financial information in its entirety and not to rely on a single financial measure.

EBITDA, EBITDAre and FFO

EBITDA represents net income (calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP) excluding: (1) interest expense; (2) provision for income taxes, including income taxes applicable to sale of assets; and (3) depreciation and amortization.  The Company computes 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 represents net income (calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP) adjusted for: (1) interest expense; (2) provision for income taxes, including income taxes applicable to sale of assets; (3) depreciation and amortization; (4) gains or losses on the disposition of depreciated property including gains or losses on change of control; (5) 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 (6) adjustments to reflect the entity's share of EBITDAre of unconsolidated affiliates.

We believe EBITDA and EBITDAre are useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance because they help investors evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the impact of our capital structure (primarily interest expense) and our asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization, and in the case of EBITDAre, impairment and gains or losses on dispositions of depreciated property) from our operating results. In addition, covenants included in our debt agreements use EBITDA as a measure of financial compliance. We also use EBITDA and EBITDAre as measures in determining the value of hotel acquisitions and dispositions.

The Company computes FFO in accordance with standards established by the Nareit, which defines FFO as net income determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding gains or losses from sales of properties and impairment losses, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization. The Company believes that the presentation of FFO provides useful information to investors regarding its operating performance because it is a measure of the Company's operations without regard to specified non-cash items, such as real estate related depreciation and amortization and gains or losses on the sale of assets.  The Company also uses FFO as one measure in assessing its operating results.

Hotel EBITDA

Hotel EBITDA represents net income excluding:  (1) interest expense, (2) income taxes, (3) depreciation and amortization, (4) corporate general and administrative expenses (shown as corporate expenses on the consolidated statements of operations), and (5) hotel acquisition costs. We believe that Hotel EBITDA provides our investors a useful financial measure to evaluate our hotel operating performance, excluding the impact of our capital structure (primarily interest), our asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization), and our corporate-level expenses (corporate expenses and hotel acquisition costs).  With respect to Hotel EBITDA, we believe that excluding the effect of corporate-level expenses provides a more complete understanding of the operating results over which individual hotels and third-party management companies have direct control.  We believe 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.

Adjustments to EBITDAre, FFO and Hotel EBITDA

We adjust EBITDAre, FFO and Hotel EBITDA when evaluating our performance because we believe that the exclusion of certain additional items described below provides useful supplemental information to investors regarding our ongoing operating performance and that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted FFO and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA when combined with U.S. GAAP net income, EBITDAre, FFO and Hotel EBITDA, is beneficial to an investor's complete understanding of our consolidated and property-level operating performance.  Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margins are calculated as Hotel Adjusted EBITDA divided by total hotel revenues.  We adjust EBITDAre, FFO and Hotel EBITDA for the following items:

  • Non-Cash Lease Expense and Other Amortization: We exclude the non-cash expense incurred from the straight line recognition of expense from our ground leases and other contractual obligations and the non-cash amortization of our favorable and unfavorable contracts, originally recorded in conjunction with certain hotel acquisitions. We exclude these non-cash items because they do not reflect the actual cash amounts due to the respective lessors and service providers in the current period and they are of lesser significance in evaluating our actual performance for that period.
  • Cumulative Effect of a Change in Accounting Principle: The Financial Accounting Standards Board promulgates new accounting standards that require or permit the consolidated statement of operations to reflect the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle. We exclude the effect of these adjustments, which include the accounting impact from prior periods, because they do not reflect the Company's actual underlying performance for the current period.
  • Gains or Losses from Early Extinguishment of Debt: We exclude the effect of gains or losses recorded on the early extinguishment of debt because these gains or losses result from transaction activity related to the Company's capital structure that we believe are not indicative of the ongoing operating performance of the Company or our hotels.
  • Hotel Acquisition Costs: We exclude hotel acquisition costs expensed during the period because we believe these transaction costs are not reflective of the ongoing performance of the Company or our hotels.
  • Severance Costs: We exclude corporate severance costs, or reversals thereof, incurred with the termination of corporate-level employees and severance costs incurred at our hotels related to lease terminations or structured severance programs because we believe these costs do not reflect the ongoing performance of the Company or our hotels.
  • Hotel Manager Transition Items: We exclude the transition items associated with a change in hotel manager because we believe these items do not reflect the ongoing performance of the Company or our hotels.
  • Other Items: From time to time we incur costs or realize gains that we consider outside the ordinary course of business and that we do not believe reflect the ongoing performance of the Company or our hotels. Such items may include, but are not limited to, the following: pre-opening costs incurred with newly developed hotels; lease preparation costs incurred to prepare vacant space for marketing; management or franchise contract termination fees; gains or losses from legal settlements; costs incurred related to natural disasters; and gains on property insurance claim settlements, other than income related to business interruption insurance.

In addition, to derive Adjusted FFO we exclude any fair value adjustments to interest rate swaps.  We exclude these non-cash amounts because they do not reflect the underlying performance of the Company.
