Operating Results

Please see "Certain Definitions" and "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" attached to this press release for an explanation of the terms "EBITDA," "Adjusted EBITDA," "Hotel Adjusted EBITDA Margin," "FFO" and "Adjusted FFO."

The discussions of "Pro Forma RevPAR" and "Pro Forma Hotel Adjusted EBITDA Margin" assume the Company owned all of its hotels since January 1, 2011 but exclude (i) the operating results of the Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort ("Frenchman's Reef") due to the impact of the extensive renovation of the hotel in 2011, (ii) the operating results of the three-hotel portfolio sold earlier in 2012, and (iii) the operating results of the Portfolio acquired on July 12, 2012. 

For the second quarter beginning March 24, 2012 and ending June 15, 2012, the Company reported the following:

The second quarter Pro Forma RevPAR increased 5.8% (from $128.65 to $136.07), which was driven by a 3.7% increase in the average daily rate (from $167.05 to $173.31) and a 1.5 percentage point increase in occupancy (from 77.0% to 78.5%). The second quarter Pro Forma Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 8 basis points (from 28.31% to 28.39%) from the comparable period in 2011.

For the period from January 1, 2012 to June 15, 2012, the Company reported the following:

  • RevPAR growth of 7.6% and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin expansion of 115 basis points compared to the comparable period in 2011.

  • Net income of $11.6 million (or $0.07 per diluted share) compared to a net loss of $11.6 million (or $0.07 per diluted share) for the comparable period in 2011.

The Company's year-to-date RevPAR growth of 7.6% (from $117.21 to $126.10) was driven by a 3.7% increase in the average daily rate (from $161.15 to $167.06) and a 2.8 percentage point increase in occupancy (from 72.7% to 75.5%). Year-to-date Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 115 basis points (from 23.20% to 24.35%) from the comparable period in 2011.

The year-to-date Pro Forma RevPAR increased 7.0% (from $113.66 to $121.58), which was driven by a 3.0% increase in the average daily rate (from $157.05 to $161.78) and a 2.8 percentage point increase in occupancy (from 72.4 percent to 75.2 percent). Year-to-date Pro Forma Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 49 basis points (from 23.45% to 23.94%) from the comparable period in 2011. 

Blackstone Portfolio Acquisition

On July 12, 2012, the Company completed the acquisition of the Portfolio for a contractual purchase price of $495 million.  This high-quality Portfolio consists of the 362-room Hilton Boston, the 406-room Westin Washington D.C., the 258-room Hilton Burlington and the 436-room Westin San Diego.  The Portfolio, which is primarily concentrated in high growth urban markets, is expected to enhance the overall quality of the Company's portfolio.  The Portfolio's forecasted 2012 RevPAR is approximately $11 above the RevPAR of the Company's prior 23-hotel portfolio and is expected to generate a Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin premium of 900 basis points. The Company funded the acquisition with a combination of borrowings under its senior unsecured credit facility, cash on hand, net proceeds from a public equity offering and the issuance of shares of the Company's common stock to Blackstone in a private placement. 

Follow-on Equity Offering

The Company completed a follow-on public offering of its common stock during July 2012.  The Company sold 20,000,000 shares of its common stock for net proceeds, after deduction of offering costs, of approximately $200.1 million.

Blackstone Share Issuance

The Company funded $75 million of the Portfolio acquisition through the issuance of 7,211,538 unregistered shares of its common stock to affiliates of Blackstone. Blackstone and the Company entered into a Registration Rights Agreement, which, among other things, requires the Company to use its best efforts to register these shares and subjects these shares to a 150-day lock-up period.

Dividends

The Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.08 per share to stockholders of record as of May 15, 2012.  The dividend was paid on May 29, 2012.

Lexington Hotel Update

The Company has completed its evaluation of branding alternatives and concluded that the best long-term strategy was the conversion of the hotel to Marriott International's Autograph Collection.  During 2012, we signed a franchise agreement with Marriott to convert the hotel upon satisfactory completion of a $32 million capital improvement plan.  The renovation will be comprehensive and touch every aspect of the hotel that the guest experiences.  The expected timing of the conversion is as follows:

  • Radisson will be terminated as of September 15, 2012.
  • The hotel will operate as an independent hotel until completion of the capital improvement plan.
  • The Company expects to complete the capital improvement plan during early 2013.
  • The hotel will be re-launched as an Autograph Collection hotel in mid-2013.

Highgate Hotels will continue to manage the hotel under the existing hotel management agreement. 

Allerton Update

The Allerton Hotel bankruptcy proceedings are ongoing.  The Company presented its objection to the Debtor's Plan of Reorganization during a hearing that started on July 23, 2012.  The Company expects the bankruptcy to be resolved at the end of 2012.

Capital Expenditures

In 2012, the Company expects to spend approximately $50 million on capital improvements at its hotels, $20 million of which is expected to be funded from corporate cash.  The Company spent approximately $15.2 million for capital improvements as of June 15, 2012.  The most significant projects for 2012 include the following:

  • Conrad Chicago:  The Company expects to spend $3.5 million to add 4,100 square feet of new meeting space, reposition the food and beverage outlets and re-concept the hotel lobby.  The addition of the new meeting space is scheduled to be completed by the end of the summer of 2012 and the lobby repositioning in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Renaissance WorthingtonThe Company expects to spend $1.2 million over the next two years to undertake a comprehensive restoration of the concrete façade of the hotel.
  • Marriott Atlanta AlpharettaThe Company expects to spend $2.4 million to renovate the guest rooms at the hotel during the third quarter of 2012.
  • Frenchman's ReefThe Company expects to spend $1.6 million to renovate certain guest rooms and replace the boat dock.  The Company expects these projects to be completed by early 2013.

In connection with executing the rebranding strategy at the Lexington Hotel, the Company is currently planning a comprehensive renovation of the hotel, including the lobby, corridors, guest rooms and guest bathrooms. The cost of the renovation is expected to be approximately $32 million and completed during the first half of 2013.

The Company continues to evaluate an extensive renovation project at the Chicago Marriott Downtown that, if approved, is expected to be completed in subsequent years.

In connection with the acquisition of the Portfolio, the Company expects to spend approximately $56 million for capital improvements at the Portfolio over the next 60 months, including approximately $30 million to $35 million in the first two years of ownership.

Balance Sheet

The Company continues to maintain its straightforward capital structure.  The Company has no preferred equity outstanding and continues to own 100% of its properties.  During July 2012, the Company's Board of Directors approved an amendment of the Company's charter to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock from 200 million to 400 million.

After completing the acquisition of the Portfolio, DiamondRock continues to maintain one of the most durable and lowest levered balance sheets among its lodging REIT peers.  The Company maintains balance sheet flexibility with no near term debt maturities, capacity on its senior unsecured credit facility and 16 of its 27 hotels unencumbered by mortgage debt.   DiamondRock remains committed to its core strategy of maintaining a simple capital structure with conservative leverage.

Outlook and Guidance

The Company is providing guidance, but does not undertake to update it for any developments in its business.  Achievement of the anticipated results is subject to the risks disclosed in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  The Company's 2012 RevPAR guidance assumes all of the Company's 27 hotels were owned since January 1, 2011.

The Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO guidance includes $5.2 million of Adjusted EBITDA and $2.9 million of Adjusted FFO from the three hotels sold and excludes cash interest payments and legal fees related to the Allerton Hotel.

The Company is revising its full year 2012 guidance to incorporate the post-acquisition results of the Portfolio, the increased share count from recent equity activity and the most recent outlook for its hotels' performance for the remainder of the year. 

The Company expects its portfolio of 27 hotels to deliver full-year RevPAR growth of approximately 5.5 to 7.5 percent with modest growth in the third fiscal quarter followed by strong fourth quarter growth.  The Company expects its third fiscal quarter to be impacted by the following:

  • Worthington Renaissance:  The facade project at the Worthington Renaissance is expected to create $2.0 million of Hotel Adjusted EBITDA disruption, mostly in the third quarter. This disruption is expected to negatively impact the Company's third quarter 2012 RevPAR growth by approximately 60 basis points. 
  • Chicago Convention Calendar:  The Chicago citywide group meeting activity in 2012 is weighted towards the second and fourth fiscal quarters.  Group booking pace at the Chicago Marriott is down approximately 6% for the third fiscal quarter as a result of the citywide timing.  The Company's Chicago hotels will negatively impact its third quarter RevPAR growth by approximately 70 basis points.
  • Minneapolis Convention Calendar: The Hilton Minneapolis RevPAR growth is facing difficult comparisons in 2012 due to a difficult convention calendar, which will continue in the third fiscal quarter.  Group booking pace at the Hilton Minneapolis is down approximately 7% for the third fiscal quarter as a result of the citywide timing.  The Hilton Minneapolis will negatively impact the Company's third quarter RevPAR growth by approximately 50 basis points.

The Company expects strong RevPAR growth during the fourth fiscal quarter as a result of the following:

  • Chicago Convention Calendar:  The fourth quarter will benefit from the favorable timing of citywide meetings in Chicago.  The fourth fiscal quarter group booking pace for the Chicago Conrad and Chicago Marriott is up 46% and 14%, respectively.
  • Boston Westin Booking Pace:  The fourth quarter will benefit from the strong convention activity at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, as evidenced by fourth quarter group booking pace being up almost 11%.
  • LAX Marriott:  The Company expects the LAX Marriott to outperform during the fourth quarter.  The fourth quarter group booking pace at this hotel is up over 50%.
  • New York City:  The Company expects strong fourth quarter performance from its well-located hotels in New York City.

Based on its outlook, the Company now expects the following full year 2012 results:

  • RevPAR growth of 5.5 percent to 7.5 percent;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $193 million to $201 million;
  • Adjusted FFO of $138 million to $145 million, which assumes income taxes to range from a benefit of $1.0 million to an expense of $1.0 million; and
  • Adjusted FFO per share of $0.76 to $0.80 based on 181.3 million diluted weighted average shares.

In addition, the Company expects the following results for the third fiscal quarter:

  • RevPAR growth of 3 percent to 4 percent;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $44.5 million to $48.5 million;
  • Adjusted FFO of $33 million to $36 million, which assumes income tax benefit to range from $1.2 million to $0.1 million; and
  • Adjusted FFO per share of $0.18 to $0.19 based on 187.5 million diluted weighted average shares.

Reporting Periods for Statement of Operations

The results reported in the Company's consolidated statements of operations are based on results of its hotels reported by hotel managers. The Company's hotel managers use different reporting periods. Marriott International, the manager of most of the Company's properties, uses a fiscal year ending on the Friday closest to December 31 and reports 12 weeks of operations for the first three quarters and 16 or 17 weeks for the fourth quarter of the year for its domestic managed hotels. In contrast, Marriott International for its non-domestic hotels (including Frenchman's Reef), Davidson Hotel Company, manager of the Westin Atlanta North, Vail Resorts, manager of the Vail Marriott, Hilton Hotels Corporation, manager of the Conrad Chicago and the Hilton Minneapolis, Westin Hotel Management, L.P., manager of the Westin Boston Waterfront, Alliance Hospitality Management, manager of the Hilton Garden Inn Chelsea, Sage Hospitality, manager of the JW Marriott Denver Cherry Creek and the Courtyard Denver, Highgate Hotels, manager of the Lexington Hotel, Interstate Hotels and Resorts, manager of the Westin Washington D.C., the Westin San Diego and the Hilton Burlington, and WHM, LLC, manager of the Hilton Boston report results on a monthly basis. Additionally, the Company, as a REIT, is required by U.S. federal tax laws to report results on a calendar year basis. As a result, the Company has adopted the reporting periods used by Marriott International for its domestic hotels, except that the fiscal year always ends on December 31 to comply with REIT rules. The first three fiscal quarters end on the same day as Marriott International's fiscal quarters but the fourth quarter ends on December 31 and full year results, as reported in the statement of operations, always include the same number of days as the calendar year.

Two consequences of the reporting cycle the Company has adopted are: (1) quarterly start dates will usually differ between years, except for the first quarter which always commences on January 1, and (2) the first and fourth quarters of operations and year-to-date operations may not include the same number of days as reflected in prior years.

While the reporting calendar the Company adopted is more closely aligned with the reporting calendar used by the manager of most of its properties, one final consequence of the calendar is the Company is unable to report any results for Frenchman's Reef, Westin Atlanta North, Vail Marriott, Conrad Chicago, Westin Boston Waterfront, Hilton Minneapolis, Hilton Garden Inn Chelsea, JW Marriott Denver Cherry Creek, Courtyard Denver, Lexington Hotel, Westin Washington D.C., the Westin San Diego and the Hilton Burlington or the Hilton Boston for the month of operations that ends after its fiscal quarter-end because none of Vail Resorts, Davidson Hotel Company,  Hilton Hotels Corporation, Westin Hotel Management, L.P., Alliance Hospitality Management, Sage Hospitality, Highgate Hotels, Interstate Hotels and Resorts, WHM, LLC  and Marriott International (for international hotels) make mid-month results available. As a result, the quarterly results of operations include results from these hotels as follows: first quarter (January and February), second quarter (March to May), third quarter (June to August) and fourth quarter (September to December). While this does not affect full-year results, it does affect the reporting of quarterly results.

Marriott International announced preliminary plans to change their current fiscal year to a calendar year effective January 1, 2013. Marriott International expects to make the fiscal year change on a prospective basis and will not adjust the prior year operating results.  The change to Marriott's fiscal year will not impact the Company's full year results, which are currently reported on a calendar year.  However, the preliminary change will impact the prior year comparability of each of the Company's 2013 fiscal quarters.

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, 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 GAAP.  EBITDA, 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.

EBITDA and FFO

EBITDA represents net (loss) income excluding: (1) interest expense; (2) provision for income taxes, including income taxes applicable to sale of assets; and (3) depreciation and amortization. We believe EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance because it helps 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) from  our operating results. In addition, covenants included in our indebtedness use EBITDA as a measure of financial compliance. We also use EBITDA as one measure in determining the value of hotel acquisitions and dispositions.

The Company computes FFO in accordance with standards established by NAREIT, which defines FFO as net (loss) income determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains or losses from sales of properties and impairment losses, plus 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 depreciation and amortization and gain or loss on sale of assets.  The Company also uses FFO as one measure in assessing its results.

Adjustments to EBITDA and FFO

We adjust FFO and EBITDA when evaluating our performance because we believe that the exclusion of certain additional recurring and non-recurring items described below provides useful supplemental information to investors regarding our ongoing operating performance and that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO, when combined with GAAP net income, EBITDA and FFO, is beneficial to an investor's complete understanding of our operating performance.  We adjust EBITDA and FFO for the following items:

  • Non-Cash Ground Rent: We exclude the non-cash expense incurred from straight lining the rent from our ground lease obligations and the non-cash amortization of our favorable lease assets.
  • Non-Cash Amortization of Unfavorable Contract Liabilities: We exclude the non-cash amortization of the unfavorable contract liabilities recorded in conjunction with our acquisitions of the Bethesda Marriott Suites, the Chicago Marriott Downtown, the Renaissance Charleston and the Lexington Hotel New York.  The amortization of the unfavorable contract liabilities does not reflect the underlying operating performance of our hotels.
  • Cumulative Effect of a Change in Accounting Principle: Infrequently, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) promulgates new accounting standards that require the consolidated statement of operations to reflect the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle.  We exclude the effect of these one-time adjustments because they do not reflect its actual performance for that period.
  • Gains from Early Extinguishment of Debt: We exclude the effect of gains recorded on the early extinguishment of debt because we believe they do not accurately reflect the underlying performance of the Company.
  • Acquisition Costs:  We exclude acquisition transaction costs expensed during the period because we believe they do not reflect the underlying performance of the Company.
  • Allerton Loan:  In 2011, we included cash payments received on the senior loan secured by the Allerton Hotel in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO. GAAP requires us to record the cash received from the borrower as a reduction of our basis in the mortgage loan due to the uncertainty over the timing and amount of cash payments on the loan.  Beginning in 2012, due to the uncertainty of the timing of the bankruptcy resolution, we exclude both cash interest payments received from the borrower and the legal costs incurred as a result of the bankruptcy proceedings from our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO.  We have not adjusted our 2011 Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO calculations to reflect this change in presentation.
  • Other Non-Cash and /or Unusual Items:  We exclude the effect of certain non-cash and/or unusual items because we believe they do not reflect the underlying performance of the Company.  In 2012, we excluded the franchise termination fee paid to Radisson because we believe that including it would not be consistent with reflecting the ongoing performance of the hotel. In 2011, we excluded the accrual for net key money repayment to Hilton in conjunction with entering into a termination agreement for the Conrad Chicago because we believe that including it was not consistent with reflecting the ongoing performance of the hotel.

In addition, to derive Adjusted EBITDA we exclude gains or losses on dispositions and impairment losses because we believe that including them in EBITDA is not consistent with reflecting the ongoing performance of our hotels. Additionally, the gain or loss on dispositions and impairment losses represent either accelerated depreciation or excess depreciation in previous periods, and depreciation is excluded from EBITDA.

In addition, to derive Adjusted FFO we exclude any fair value adjustments to debt instruments.  Specifically, we exclude the impact of the non-cash amortization of the debt premium recorded in conjunction with the acquisition of the JW Marriott Denver at Cherry Creek and fair market value adjustments to the Company's interest rate cap agreement.

Use and Limitations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our management and Board of Directors use EBITDA, 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 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 GAAP. They should not be considered as alternatives to operating profit, cash flow from operations, or any other operating performance measure prescribed by GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect additional ways of viewing our operations that we believe, when viewed with our GAAP results and the reconciliations to the corresponding 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.


Quarterly Pro Forma Financial Information

The following table is presented to provide investors with selected historical quarterly operating information to include the operating results for the Company's current portfolio of 27 hotels as if they were owned since January 1, 2011 and exclude the three hotels sold on March 23, 2012.

Certain Definitions

In this release, when we discuss "Hotel Adjusted EBITDA," we exclude from Hotel EBITDA the non-cash expense incurred by the hotels due to the straight lining of the rent from our ground lease obligations, the non-cash amortization of our favorable lease assets, the non-cash amortization of the unfavorable contract liabilities recorded in conjunction with the acquisitions of the Bethesda Marriott Suites, the Chicago Marriott Downtown, the Renaissance Charleston and the Lexington Hotel New York. Hotel EBITDA represents hotel net income excluding: (1) interest expense; (2) income taxes; and (3) depreciation and amortization. Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margins are calculated as Hotel Adjusted EBITDA divided by total hotel revenues. Net debt is calculated as total debt outstanding less unrestricted cash.
