Red Lion Hotels Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

SPOKANE, Wash., Aug. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Lion Hotels Corporation (NYSE: RLH), a western U.S. based owner and a franchisor of midscale hotels, today announced its results for the second quarter 2013.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130228/SF68271LOGO)

Second Quarter Highlights:

  • Refinanced $38 million in maturing debt through an expanded credit facility
  • ADR for comparable owned and leased hotels increased 4.3 percent year over year
  • RevPAR for comparable owned and leased hotels increased 3.0 percent year over year
  • Signed agreements for three franchise hotels during the quarter

Comparable operating results and data from continuing operations (as disclosed in the table by the same title) for the periods included in this release exclude from hotel operations the results of the hotels or operations that have been sold in the past four quarters.  Throughout this release the company refers to certain non-GAAP financial measures.  Please refer to the tables attached to this release for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measure determined in accordance with GAAP.

"We have been successful in growing rate in 2013 with ADR increasing by 4.3 percent during the second quarter," said Jon E. Eliassen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Red Lion Hotels Corporation. "We will continue to focus on ADR growth for the remainder of the year."

Eliassen continued, "Expanding our franchise network also remains a key growth initiative.  With 27 franchised properties, we are well on our way toward our goal of 30 by the end of the year.  Additionally, with the completion in June of our refinancing and expanded credit facility, Red Lion has a stronger balance sheet and is better positioned to invest in franchising and in improvements for our owned properties."

Second Quarter 2013 Results
Total comparable revenue from owned and leased hotels of $32.6 million increased $0.3 million or 0.9 percent compared to the same period a year ago. Comparable room revenue from owned and leased hotels of $25.5 million increased $0.8 million over the same period last year. Comparable ADR increased by 4.3 percent to $88.15, which drove a RevPAR increase of 3.0 percent year over year to $58.89.  Comparable hotel direct operating margin declined to 22.1 percent from 24.7 percent in the same period in 2012, largely due to timing of sales & marketing initiatives, declines in food and beverage contribution, and one-time labor cost adjustments that benefited the second quarter of 2012.

Franchise revenue increased to $1.9 million from $1.3 million.  Net segment results however declined $0.3 million reflecting increased costs to support the company's franchise growth initiative.

Entertainment revenue of $1.8 million decreased $0.6 million from the second quarter of 2012.  The timing and mix of shows drove the decline in revenue and segment results.

On a comparable basis, total company EBITDA from continuing operations before special items was $4.0 million for the second quarter of 2013 compared to $5.0 million in the prior year period.  Increased marketing expense, franchise development costs and unfavorable labor cost comparisons due to one-time adjustments that occurred in 2012 were the primary contributors to the decline in EBITDA.

Net loss from continuing operations in the second quarter of 2013 was $0.9 million compared to $0.1 million in the second quarter of 2012. 

Discontinued Operations
The operations of the company's commercial mall in Kalispell, Montana, the Red Lion Hotel Medford in Oregon, the ownership of certain real estate in Sacramento, California, and a contract catering business in Yakima, Washington, were classified as discontinued operations.  This presentation, as required under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), separately reports the results including any related asset impairment charges, net of income taxes as "net income (loss) from discontinued operations" on the company's statement of comprehensive income (loss) for all periods presented.

Liquidity and Balance Sheet
On June 20, 2013, the company expanded its existing credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association.  The term loan under the facility, which will not mature until June 2018, was increased to $45 million with a 15-year amortization.  Proceeds of approximately $38 million from the expanded facility were used to refinance the company's maturing debt.  The remaining proceeds will be used for capital expenditures and for general corporate purposes.  Additionally, a $10 million two-year revolving line of credit is available under the facility, a portion of which supports outstanding letters of credit.  The company has pledged 19 Red Lion hotels as collateral for the new agreement.

At June 30, 2013, the company had $17.2 million in cash and cash equivalents and no cash borrowings on its $10 million revolving line of credit. Additionally, at June 30, 2013, the company had outstanding debt of $75.8 million, of which $3.0 million was current.

Capital expenditures, primarily for guest room improvement projects, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, totaled $2.7 million and $4.7 million respectively.   

Franchise Update
During the second quarter, the company signed three franchise agreements; one with the buyer of the company's previously owned property; one with the owners of a new location which converted in the quarter; and a third with the owners of an independent hotel which joined the Leo Hotel Collection subsequent to quarter end:

  • The Red Lion Hotel in Pendleton, Oregon, continued as a franchise following its sale by the company in April 2013
  • Red Lion Inn & Suites Tempe in Arizona, converted in May 2013
  • The Riverside Hotel – Boise, converted in July 2013 and joined the Leo Hotel Collection

Assets Held for Sale
During the second quarter, the company sold the following assets:

  • Red Lion Hotel in Pendleton, Oregon, for $2.25 million, which continued as a franchise hotel upon closing of the sale
  • Kalispell Center Mall in Montana for $11.6 million.  Concurrent with the sale, the company entered into an operating lease agreement with the buyer of the commercial mall under which the company will continue to operate the attached Red Lion Hotel Kalispell.

Subsequent to quarter end, the company sold the Red Lion Hotel Medford in Oregon for $2.8 million.

Outlook for 2013
Based on the outlook for the markets in which the company operates and on currently available information, the company reaffirms the previously announced RevPAR guidance and has refined its capital expenditure estimates for 2013:

  • Full year 2013 RevPAR for comparable owned and leased hotels is expected to increase 1 to 3 percent over 2012, driven primarily by ADR increases.
  • The company expects to invest $12-$16 million in capital improvements in 2013.

Comparable Operating Results and Data From Continuing Operations

(unaudited)

($ in thousands)


Certain operating results for the periods included in this report are shown on a comparable hotel basis.  Comparable hotels are defined as properties that are owned or leased by the company and the operations of which are included in the consolidated results from continuing operations for the entirety of the reporting periods being compared.  Comparable operating results from continuing operations and comparable operating results from continuing operations before special items represent reported operating results less the impact of the Helena property, which was sold in July 2012; the Denver Southeast property, which was sold in October 2012; the Missoula property, which was sold in February 2013 and  the Pendleton property, which was sold in April 2013; and less the impact of certain non-recurring charges that do not allow for a meaningful comparison between periods.  We utilize these measures because management finds them a useful tool to perform more meaningful comparisons of past, present and future operating results and as a means to evaluate the results of core, ongoing operations.  We believe they are a complement to reported operating results.  Comparable operating results from continuing operations and comparable operating results from continuing operations before special items are not intended to represent reported operating results defined by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), and such information should not be considered as an alternative to reported information or any other measure of performance prescribed by GAAP.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES


EBITDA is defined as net income attributable to Red Lion Hotels Corporation, before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.  EBITDA is considered a non-GAAP financial measurement.  We believe it is a useful financial performance measure for us and for our shareholders and is a complement to net income attributable to Red Lion Hotels Corporation and other financial performance measures provided in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP").


We use EBITDA to measure financial performance because it excludes interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, which bear little or no relationship to operating performance. By excluding interest expense, EBITDA measures our financial performance irrespective of our capital structure or how we finance our properties and operations. We generally pay federal and state income taxes on a consolidated basis, taking into account how the applicable tax laws apply to our company in the aggregate. By excluding taxes on income, we believe EBITDA provides a basis for measuring the financial performance of our operations excluding factors that our hotels and other operations cannot control.  By excluding depreciation and amortization expense, which can vary from hotel to hotel based on historical cost and other factors unrelated to the hotels' financial performance, EBITDA measures the financial performance of our hotels without regard to their historical cost. For all of these reasons, we believe that EBITDA provides us and investors with information that is relevant and useful in evaluating our business.


However, because EBITDA excludes depreciation and amortization, it does not measure the capital we require to maintain or preserve our long-lived assets. In addition, because EBITDA does not reflect interest expense, it does not take into account the total amount of interest we pay on outstanding debt nor does it show trends in interest costs due to changes in our borrowings or changes in interest rates. EBITDA, as defined by us, may not be comparable to EBITDA as reported by other companies that do not define EBITDA exactly as we define the term.  Because we use EBITDA to evaluate our financial performance, we reconcile all EBITDA measures to net income attributable to Red Lion Hotels Corporation, which is the most comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.  EBITDA does not represent cash provided by operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or net income attributable to Red Lion Hotels Corporation determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of performance or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as an indicator of liquidity.

Disclosure of Special Items

(unaudited)


During the second quarter of 2012, the Company recorded a $0.3 million pre-tax impairment charge in continuing operations related to its property in Helena, Montana.  During the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company recorded $3.9 million, $2.3 million and $0.7 million in pre-tax impairment charges in continuing operations related to its properties in Denver, Colorado, Helena, Montana and Missoula, Montana, respectively.  As a result, the operations as presented in the accompanying financial statements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 compared to 2012 do not reflect a meaningful comparison between periods.  The following table represents a reconciliation of EBITDA from continuing operations before special items to EBITDA from continuing operations.
