  • RevPAR for all hotels in continuing operations, including the Highland Hospitality portfolio, increased 4.3% during the quarter
  • RevPAR increased 7.7% for all hotels in the Highland Hospitality portfolio, driven by a 6% increase in ADR and a 110 basis point increase in occupancy

  • Hotel operating profit margin increased 221 basis points for all Highland Hospitality hotels not under renovation in continuing operations
  • Net loss attributable to common shareholders was $23.2 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, compared with net loss attributable to common shareholders of $29.5 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter
  • Adjusted funds from operations (AFFO) was $0.35 per diluted share for the quarter as compared with $0.28 from the prior-year quarter
  • At the end of the first quarter 2013, Ashford had cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities of $238 million

CAPITAL ALLOCATION

  • Capex invested in the quarter for the Legacy portfolio was $20.0 million
  • Ashford's pro rata share of capex invested in the quarter for the Highland Hospitality portfolio was $11.9 million

CAPITAL STRUCTURE

At March 31, 2013, Ashford had total assets of $3.5 billion in continuing operations, and $4.4 billion overall including the Highland Hospitality portfolio which is not consolidated. As of March 31, 2013, the Company had $2.4 billion of mortgage debt in continuing operations and $3.2 billion overall including the Highland Hospitality portfolio. Ashford's total combined debt had a blended average interest rate of 5.3%, with a weighted average debt maturity of 3.6 years.

On February 26, 2013, Ashford refinanced its sole remaining 2013 debt maturity, which was set to mature in August 2013. The prior $141 million loan was refinanced with a new $200 million loan that matures in February 2018. The new loan provides for a floating interest rate of LIBOR + 3.50%, with no LIBOR floor and continues to be secured by the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC and the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines in La Jolla, CA. Ashford has a 75% ownership interest in the properties, with Hilton holding the remaining 25%. The excess loan proceeds above closing costs and reserves were distributed to the partners on a pro rata basis. Ashford's share of the excess loan proceeds was approximately $40.5 million, which was added to the Company's unrestricted cash balance. As a result, the refinancing was neutral to Ashford on a net debt basis.

Subsequent to the end of the first quarter, the Company announced that, along with its joint venture partner, it had entered into a series of agreements with the City of Nashville and Davidson County relating to the 673-room Renaissance Nashville Hotel. The hotel is part of Ashford's Highland Hospitality portfolio of which Ashford has a 71.74% ownership interest. The Agreements include converting the joint venture's leasehold interest in the hotel, which was set to expire in 2087, to fee simple ownership, extending the current lease term of some adjacent facilities to 2112, and entering into a new, 30-year lease for 80,000 square feet of meeting space and pre-function space located at the existing Nashville Convention Center, which is adjacent to the hotel, all at no cost to the joint venture. By entering into the lease for the additional meeting space, the hotel will now be able to offer over 110,000 square feet of self-contained meeting and pre-function space to accommodate larger groups. Previously, the hotel offered 30,000 square feet of self-contained meeting space and had access to the newly leased space on an "as available" basis and paid additional rent for the use of that space.

On May 7, 2013, the Company announced that it had signed a definitive agreement to acquire the 142-room Pier House Resort and Spa in Key West, FL for $90 million. The purchase price equates to a trailing 12-month cap rate of 6.2% and a trailing 12-month EBITDA yield of 7.0%. On a forward 12-month basis, the purchase price represents a cap rate of 7.6% and an EBITDA yield of 8.5%, which equates to an 11.8x forward EBITDA multiple. In 2012, the hotel achieved RevPAR of $275, with occupancy of 83% and an Average Daily Rate of $333. The Company intends to fund the entire purchase price with cash on hand and the acquisition is expected to close by May 20, 2013.

PORTFOLIO REVPAR

As of March 31, 2013, the Company's Legacy portfolio consisted of direct hotel investments with 94 properties classified in continuing operations. During the first quarter of 2013, 84 of the hotels included in continuing operations were not under renovation. The Company believes reporting its operating metrics for continuing operations on a proforma total basis (all 94 hotels) and proforma not under renovation basis (84 hotels) is a measure that reflects a meaningful and focused comparison of the operating results in its direct hotel portfolio. Details of each category are provided in the tables attached to this release.

  • Proforma RevPAR increased 3.4% to $99.48 for all hotels in the Legacy portfolio on a 3.3% increase in ADR and a 7 basis point increase in occupancy
  • Proforma RevPAR increased 4.0% to $101.06 for hotels not under renovation in the Legacy portfolio on a 3.5% increase in ADR and a 31 basis point increase in occupancy
  • Proforma RevPAR increased 7.7% to $98.41 for all hotels in the Highland Hospitality portfolio on a 6.0% increase in ADR and a 110 basis point increase in occupancy
  • Proforma RevPAR increased 8.7% to $95.12 for hotels not under renovation in the Highland Hospitality portfolio on a 5.3% increase in ADR and a 216 basis point increase in occupancy

HIGHLAND HOSPITALITY PORTFOLIO UPDATE

The Highland Hospitality portfolio experienced RevPAR growth of 7.7% during the first quarter of 2013, with RevPAR growth for hotels not under renovation in continuing operations of 8.7%. The Highland Hospitality portfolio continued to experience strong EBITDA flow-through during the first quarter as a result of improved RevPAR growth, solid property management and previously completed capital expenditures. For all 28 hotels in the Highland Hospitality portfolio, Hotel EBITDA Margin increased 185 bps and Hotel EBITDA flow-through was 53%. For the 21 hotels not under renovation during the first quarter 2013, Hotel EBITDA Margin increased 221 basis points and Hotel EBITDA flow-through was 52%. Hotel EBITDA increased 15.1% in the first quarter for all hotels in the Highland Hospitality portfolio.

HOTEL EBITDA MARGINS AND QUARTERLY SEASONALITY TRENDS

During the quarter, Hotel operating profit (Hotel EBITDA) for all Legacy hotels increased 3.9% to $72.5 million. For the 84 hotels that were not under renovation, Hotel EBITDA increased 5.7% to $67.1 million. Hotel EBITDA Margin (expressed as a percentage of Total Hotel Revenue) increased 77 basis points to 32.5% for the 84 Legacy hotels not under renovation. For all 94 Legacy hotels included in continuing operations, Hotel EBITDA Margin increased 48 basis points to 31.5%.

For the Company's 71.74% share of all hotels in the Highland Hospitality portfolio, Hotel operating profit (Hotel EBITDA) increased 15.1% to $18.9 million. For the 21 hotels in the Highland Hospitality portfolio that were not under renovation, Hotel EBITDA increased 18.5% to $13.6 million. Hotel EBITDA margin (expressed as a percentage of Total Hotel Revenue) increased 221 basis points to 25.2% for the 21 Highland Hospitality hotels not under renovation. For all 28 Highland Hospitality hotels included in continuing operations, Hotel EBITDA margin increased 185 basis points to 25.8%.

Starting with its second quarter 2012 financial results, the Company added additional disclosure information regarding property level trailing 12-month Hotel EBITDA by debt pool. The Company believes this additional disclosure will assist the investment community in analyzing Ashford and help analysts and investors see the benefits of the non-recourse nature of its property level debt. Prior to providing this information, the investment community could only reference the Company's total EBITDA and total debt when applying a valuation multiple.

Ashford believes year-over-year Hotel EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA Margin comparisons are more meaningful to gauge the performance of the Company's hotels than sequential quarter-over-quarter comparisons. Given the substantial seasonality in the Company's portfolio and its active capital recycling, to help investors better understand this seasonality, the Company provides quarterly detail on its Hotel EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA Margin for the current and certain prior-year periods based upon the number of hotels in the Legacy portfolio as well as its pro-rata share of the Highland Hospitality portfolio as of the end of the current period. As Ashford's portfolio mix changes from time to time so will the seasonality for Proforma Hotel EBITDA and Proforma Hotel EBITDA margin. The details of the quarterly calculations for the previous four quarters for the current portfolio of 94 Legacy hotels included in continuing operations together with Ashford's pro-rata share of the Highland Hospitality portfolio are provided in the table attached to this release.

In addition, in 2013, Marriott Hotels and Resorts converted to a monthly reporting calendar as opposed to its traditional thirteen-period reporting calendar. Historically, Ashford has recorded four of its Marriott-managed hotels' accounting periods in the fourth quarter and three in each of the other quarters during the year. Presently, Marriott manages 46 hotels for Ashford making it one of the Company's largest property managers. Accordingly, this year Ashford has converted its 2012 numbers on a proforma basis to calendar months, consistent with the new Marriott monthly reporting calendar, to provide necessary consistency in period-to-period comparisons.

COMMON STOCK DIVIDEND

On March 15, 2013, Ashford announced that its Board of Directors had declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.12 per diluted share for the Company's common stock for the first quarter ending March 31, 2013, payable on April 15, 2013, to shareholders of record as of March 28, 2013.

"We are very pleased with our first quarter results which continue to demonstrate substantial improvement in the operating performance of our Highland Hospitality portfolio due to the management changes and cost controls we have implemented as well as the capital expenditures we continue to make at the hotels," commented Monty J. Bennett, Ashford's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Additionally, our capital market strategies have essentially addressed all of our near-term debt maturities, with our next significant debt maturity not until November 2014. Our efforts have been extremely successful and have put Ashford in a significantly enhanced position both from a cash and liquidity perspective. We believe we have more than sufficient resources to insulate us from any unexpected market fluctuations and the financial flexibility to take advantage of accretive investments opportunities that may arise."

Substantially all of our non-current assets consist of real estate investments and debt investments secured by real estate. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, most industry investors consider supplemental measures of performance, which are not measures of operating performance under GAAP, to assist in evaluating a real estate company's operations. These supplemental measures include FFO, AFFO, EBITDA, and Hotel Operating Profit. FFO is computed in accordance with our interpretation of standards established by NAREIT, which may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the term in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the NAREIT definition differently than us. Neither FFO, AFFO, EBITDA, nor Hotel Operating Profit represents cash generated from operating activities as determined by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to a) GAAP net income (loss) as an indication of our financial performance or b) GAAP cash flows from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity, nor are such measures indicative of funds available to satisfy our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions. However, management believes FFO, AFFO, EBITDA, and Hotel Operating Profit to be meaningful measures of a REIT's performance and should be considered along with, but not as an alternative to, net income and cash flow as a measure of our operating performance.

Ashford is a self-administered real estate investment trust focused on investing in the hospitality industry across all segments and at all levels of the capital structure. Additional information can be found on the Company's website at www.ahtreit.com.

Certain statements and assumptions in this press release contain or are based upon "forward-looking" information and are being made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties. When we use the words "will likely result," "may," "anticipate," "estimate," "should," "expect," "believe," "intend," or similar expressions, we intend to identify forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the timing for closing, the impact of the transaction on our business and future financial condition, our business and investment strategy, our understanding of our competition and current market trends and opportunities and projected capital expenditures. Such statements are subject to numerous assumptions and uncertainties, many of which are outside Ashford's control.

These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated, including, without limitation: general volatility of the capital markets and the market price of our common stock; changes in our business or investment strategy; availability, terms and deployment of capital; availability of qualified personnel; changes in our industry and the market in which we operate, interest rates or the general economy; and the degree and nature of our competition. These and other risk factors are more fully discussed in Ashford's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. EBITDA is defined as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA yield is defined as trailing twelve month EBITDA divided by the purchase price. A capitalization rate is determined by dividing the property's annual net operating income by the purchase price. Net operating income is the property's funds from operations minus a capital expense reserve of either 4% or 5% of gross revenues. Hotel EBITDA flow-through is the change in Hotel EBITDA divided by the change in total revenues. Hotel EBITDA Margin is Hotel EBITDA divided by total revenues. Funds from operations ("FFO"), as defined by the White Paper on FFO approved by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") in April 2002, represents net income (loss) computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of properties and extraordinary items as defined by GAAP, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, and net of adjustments for the portion of these items related to unconsolidated entities and joint ventures.

The forward-looking statements included in this press release are only made as of the date of this press release. Investors should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.
