Red Lion Hotels Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results ADR and RevPar for Comparable Owned and Leased Hotels Continues to Improve

SPOKANE, Wash., Nov. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Lion Hotels Corporation (NYSE: RLH), a western U.S. based owner, operator and franchisor of midscale hotels, today announced its results for the third quarter 2013.

(Logo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130131/SF52243LOGO)

Highlights:

  • Improved ADR and RevPAR for comparable owned and leased hotels for the quarter by 4.2 percent and 2.8 percent respectively, over prior year
  • Increased comparable hotel direct operating margin for the quarter by 220 basis points, over prior year
  • Increased comparable EBITDA from continuing operations before special items for the quarter by 8.3 percent, over prior year
  • Launched individual hotel microsites
  • Achieved 2013 goal of 30 franchised hotels

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.

"With the recent conversion of three hotels to Red Lion brands, we have added a record 11 franchises this year, achieving our goal of 30 franchised properties in the Red Lion network by the end of 2013," said Interim President and Chief Executive Officer James P. Evans.  "We also increased our ADR by 4.2 percent, improved hotel direct operating margin by 220 basis points and grew comparable EBITDA from continuing operations before special items by 8.3 percent year-over-year. We are pleased with our strong operational performance."

Evans continued, "The search for our next president and chief executive officer is well underway. The national executive search firm Spencer Stuart has identified numerous qualified candidates who have expressed interest in the position, underscoring the strength of the Red Lion brand and the company's future."

Third Quarter 2013 Results

Total comparable revenue from owned and leased hotels of $38.6 million increased $0.8 million or 2.1 percent compared to the same period a year ago, driven primarily by an increase in comparable rooms revenue. Year over year, comparable third quarter ADR increased by 4.2 percent to $93.85, which resulted in a RevPAR increase of 2.8 percent to $70.86. The ADR increase generated a 220 basis point improvement in comparable hotel direct operating margin from 26.7 percent to 28.9 percent. 

Franchise revenue increased to $2.4 million from $1.6 million, led by the increase in the number of franchised hotels in the system and contractual increases in room rate on existing franchised hotels.  Net segment profits increased $0.2 million over prior year to $0.5 million

Entertainment revenue of $1.6 million rose $0.2 million from the 2012 third quarter, primarily due to increased ticketing demand. 

On a comparable basis, total company EBITDA from continuing operations before special items was $8.3 million for the 2013 third quarter, compared to $7.7 million in the prior year period.

Income from continuing operations in the 2013 third quarter improved to $1.5 million compared to $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2012. 

Discontinued Operations
The operations of the company's previously owned 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 in prior periods.  As required under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), Red Lion separately reports the results of these operations including any related asset impairment charges, net of income taxes as "Income (loss) from discontinued operations" on the company's consolidated statement of comprehensive income (loss) for all periods presented.

Liquidity and Balance Sheet

At Sept. 30, 2013, the company had $27.3 million in cash and cash equivalents and no cash borrowings on its $10 million revolving line of credit. Additionally, at Sept. 30, 2013, the company had outstanding debt of $75.4 million, of which $3.0 million was current.

Capital expenditures, primarily for guest room improvement projects, for the three and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2013, totaled $3.8 million and $8.5 million, respectively.   

Franchise Update

During the third quarter, the company signed three franchise agreements:

  • Red Lion Inn & Suites Walla Walla, Washington - converted in October 2013
  • Red Lion Hotel Ontario Airport, California – converted in October 2013
  • Red Lion Inn & Suites Perris, California – converted in November 2013

Assets Held for Sale
During the third quarter, 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 its previously announced RevPAR guidance and 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, primarily due to ADR increases.
  • The company expects to invest $12-$16 million in capital improvements in 2013.

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.

 


Red Lion Hotels Corporation

Disclosure of Special Items

(unaudited)


During the third quarter of 2013, the Company recorded $0.6 million in pre-tax separation costs in continuing operations.  Of this, $0.4 million relates to the costs associated with the retirement of the former President and Chief Executive officer and the remaining $0.2 million relates to the separation of the former Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.  During the third quarter of 2012, the Company recorded a $1.9 million pre-tax impairment charge in continuing operations related to its property in Pendleton, Oregon.   During the nine months ended September 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, in addition to the Pendleton impairment.  As a result, the operations as presented in the accompanying financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 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.
