"Our portfolio continued to perform very well during the quarter, with solid year-over-year growth," said Raymond L. "Rip" Gellein, Jr., Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Strategic Hotels & Resorts, Inc. "The acquisition of the Essex House hotel was a terrific achievement, with early indicators showing very positive reception to the JW Marriott brand. Looking forward, we see positive trends heading into the new year with group pace significantly ahead of this time last year."

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Net loss attributable to common shareholders was $8.6 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2012, compared with a loss of $11.9 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011.
  • Comparable FFO was $0.08 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2012, compared with $0.06 per diluted share in the prior year period.
  • Comparable EBITDA was $46.6 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with $43.6 million in the prior year period, a 6.7 percent increase between periods.
  • Total United States portfolio RevPAR increased 5.8 percent in the third quarter of 2012, driven by a 5.2 percentage increase in ADR and a 0.4 percent point increase in occupancy, compared to the third quarter of 2011. Total RevPAR increased 5.7 percent between periods with non-rooms revenue increasing by 5.6 percent between periods.
  • ADR growth in the Total United States portfolio was driven by a 5.8 percent increase in transient ADR compared to the third quarter of 2011 and a 3.2% increase in group ADR.
  • RevPAR increased 7.2 percent in the third quarter of 2012 in the Company's Total United States resort portfolio and 4.4 percent in the Company's Total United States urban portfolio, compared to the third quarter of 2011.
  • North American same store RevPAR increased 5.6 percent in the third quarter of 2012, driven by a 4.4 percentage increase in ADR and a 0.9 percent point increase in occupancy. Total RevPAR increased 5.8 percent with non-rooms revenue increasing by 6.0 percent between periods.

  • Total United States portfolio EBITDA margins were flat in the third quarter of 2012, compared to the third quarter of 2011. EBITDA margins for the quarter were impacted by a $2.7 million real estate tax expense recorded at the Hotel del Coronado related to prior periods as the result of a reassessment of the asset's taxable basis. Excluding this one-time charge, Total United States portfolio EBITDA margins expanded by 110 basis points in the third quarter of 2012 and North American same store EBITDA margins expanded 140 basis points.
  • Group room nights currently booked for 2012 are 0.1 percent lower than room nights booked for 2011 at the same time last year but at rates 3.5 percent higher, resulting in a 3.3 percent RevPAR increase.

  • Net loss attributable to common shareholders was $43.1 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, compared with net loss attributable to common shareholders of $7.8 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011.
  • Comparable FFO was $0.21 per diluted share compared with $0.09 per diluted share in the nine month period ended September 30, 2011.
  • Comparable EBITDA was $130.7 million compared with $114.8 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2011, a 13.8 percent increase between periods.

Investments in Unconsolidated Affiliates

(in thousands)

 

On January 9, 2006, we purchased a 45% interest in the unconsolidated affiliate that owns the Hotel del Coronado. On February 4, 2011, we completed a recapitalization of the unconsolidated affiliate. As part of the recapitalization, a new unconsolidated affiliate was formed to own the Hotel del Coronado and to invest cash in the asset. Pursuant to the terms of the recapitalization, we became a limited partner in the new unconsolidated affiliate, and our ownership interest in the Hotel del Coronado decreased from 45% to 34.3%. On June 9, 2011, we completed a recapitalization of the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess hotel. As part of the recapitalization, our ownership interest in the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess hotel decreased from 100% to 50%. We account for these investments using the equity method of accounting.

Strategic Hotels & Resorts, Inc. and Subsidiaries (SHR)

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

We present five non-GAAP financial measures that we believe are useful to management and investors as key measures of our operating performance: Funds from Operations (FFO); FFO—Fully Diluted; Comparable FFO; Earnings Before Interest Expense, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA); and Comparable EBITDA.


EBITDA represents net income (or loss) attributable to SHR common shareholders excluding: (i) interest expense, (ii) income taxes, including deferred income tax benefits and expenses applicable to our foreign subsidiaries and income taxes applicable to sale of assets; (iii) depreciation and amortization; and (iv) preferred stock dividends. EBITDA also excludes interest expense, income taxes and depreciation and amortization of our unconsolidated affiliates. EBITDA is presented on a full participation basis, which means we have assumed conversion of all redeemable noncontrolling interests of our operating partnership into our common stock. We believe this treatment of noncontrolling interests provides useful information for management and our investors and appropriately considers our current capital structure. We also present Comparable EBITDA, which eliminates the effect of realizing deferred gains on our sale leasebacks, as well as the effect of gains or losses on sales of assets, early extinguishment of debt, impairment losses, foreign currency exchange gains or losses and the Value Creation Plan expense. We believe EBITDA and Comparable EBITDA are useful to management and investors in evaluating our operating performance because they provide management and investors with an indication of our ability to incur and service debt, to satisfy general operating expenses, to make capital expenditures and to fund other cash needs or reinvest cash into our business. We also believe they help management and investors meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the impact of our asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from our operating results. Our management also uses EBITDA and Comparable EBITDA as measures in determining the value of acquisitions and dispositions.

 

We compute FFO in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, with the exception of impairment of depreciable real estate. NAREIT adopted a definition of FFO in order to promote an industry-wide standard measure of REIT operating performance. NAREIT defines FFO as net income (or loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) excluding losses or gains from sales of depreciable property, impairment of depreciable real estate, real estate-related depreciation and amortization, and our portion of these items related to unconsolidated affiliates. We also present FFO—Fully Diluted, which is FFO plus income or loss on income attributable to redeemable noncontrolling interests in our operating partnership. We also present Comparable FFO, which is FFO—Fully Diluted excluding the impact of any gains or losses on early extinguishment of debt, impairment losses, foreign currency exchange gains or losses and the Value Creation Plan expense. We believe that the presentation of FFO, FFO—Fully Diluted and Comparable FFO provides useful information to management and investors regarding our results of operations because they are measures of our ability to fund capital expenditures and expand our business. In addition, FFO is widely used in the real estate industry to measure operating performance without regard to items such as depreciation and amortization. We also present Comparable FFO per diluted share as a non-GAAP measure of our performance. We calculate Comparable FFO per diluted share for a given operating period as our Comparable FFO (as defined above) divided by the weighted average of fully diluted shares outstanding, excluding shares related to the JW Marriott Essex House Hotel put option. Dilutive securities may include shares granted under share-based compensation plans and operating partnership units. No effect is shown for securities that are anti-dilutive.

 

We caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with our definitions of FFO, FFO—Fully Diluted, Comparable FFO, EBITDA, and Comparable EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies, since not all companies calculate these non-GAAP measures in the same manner. FFO, FFO—Fully Diluted, Comparable FFO, EBITDA, and Comparable EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative measure of our net income (or loss) or operating performance. FFO, FFO—Fully Diluted, Comparable FFO, EBITDA, and Comparable EBITDA may include funds that may not be available for our discretionary use due to functional requirements to conserve funds for capital expenditures and property acquisitions and other commitments and uncertainties. Although we believe that FFO, FFO—Fully Diluted, Comparable FFO, EBITDA, and Comparable EBITDA can enhance your understanding of our financial condition and results of operations, these non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed individually, are not necessarily a better indicator of any trend as compared to comparable GAAP measures such as net income (or loss) attributable to SHR common shareholders. In addition, you should be aware that adverse economic and market conditions might negatively impact our cash flow. We have provided a quantitative reconciliation of FFO, FFO—Fully Diluted, Comparable FFO, EBITDA, and Comparable EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, which is net income (or loss) attributable to SHR common shareholders.
