("ARCH") for an total sales price of $347.4 million.  The aggregate sales price of $347.4 million represents a capitalization rate of 7.5 percent, including estimated capital improvements, for the trailing twelve months ended September 30, 2015.

Capital Investment

The Company invested $8.4 million in capital improvements during the third quarter of 2015. Among the properties renovated during the quarter, the scope of work ranged from common space improvements to complete guestroom renovations, including furniture, soft goods and guest bathrooms.

  • Total outstanding debt of $770.0 million, with a weighted average interest rate of 3.97 percent.
  • The Company's maximum borrowing capacity was $300.0 million under the senior unsecured credit facility, including both the revolver and term loan portions of the facility, with $185.0 million outstanding and $115.0 million available to borrow.

The dividends are payable on November 30, 2015 to holders of record as of November 16, 2015.

Subsequent Events

On October 15, 2015, the Company completed the sale of tranche one to affiliates of ARCH, which included 10 hotels containing 1,090 guestrooms, for a combined price of approximately $150.1 million.   The sale of the remaining 16 hotels, totaling 1,703 guestrooms, is scheduled to close in two separate tranches totaling $197.3 million, with expected sales dates in December 2015 and the first quarter 2016.  The agreements are subject to customary and standard closing conditions.  Accordingly, no assurance can be given that the sale of the remaining 16 hotels will be completed on the anticipated timeframe or at all.

Since the transaction to sell 26 hotels was announced in June 2015, the Company has completed $198.8 million of acquisitions and has an additional $109.0 million of acquisitions under contract.  The agreements for the properties under contract contain customary and standard closing conditions.  Accordingly, no assurance can be given that any of the properties under contract will be completed.

On October 19 and October 20, 2015, the Company acquired two hotels for a total purchase price of $83.0 million and entered into management agreements with Interstate Hotels & Resorts. The 156-guestroom Hyatt House located in Miami, Florida was acquired for $39.0 million and the Company anticipates spending approximately $4.8 million on capital improvements during 2016.  The 179-guestroom Courtyard by Marriott located in Atlanta (Decatur), Georgia was acquired for $44.0 million and the Company expects to spend approximately $0.5 million on capital improvements during 2016. 

"The successful transformation of our portfolio through the recycling of capital continues.  We expect the acquisition of these two hotels, which represent a 53 percent RevPAR premium and 470 basis point hotel EBITDA margin premium compared to the 26 hotels included in the ARCH transaction, to provide additional strength to the embedded growth of our portfolio," noted Mr. Hansen.

2015 Outlook

"We remain encouraged by strong RevPAR metrics across the lodging industry through October and are reaffirming the midpoint of our full-year pro forma RevPAR growth outlook and increasing the midpoint of our full-year same-store RevPAR growth outlook," said Hansen.

The Company is providing its outlook for the fourth quarter and full year 2015 based on its 87 hotels owned as of October 31, 2015.  The outlook assumes no additional hotels are acquired or sold.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Funds From Operations ("FFO") and Adjusted FFO ("AFFO")

As defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"), FFO represents net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, impairment, items classified by GAAP as extraordinary, the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles, plus depreciation and amortization, and adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.  Unless otherwise indicated, we present FFO applicable to common shares and common units.  We present FFO because we consider it an important supplemental measure of our operational performance and believe it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting their results. FFO is intended to exclude GAAP historical cost depreciation and amortization, which assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes ratably over time. Historically, however, real estate values have risen or fallen with market conditions. Because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization unique to real estate, gains and losses from property dispositions and impairment losses, it provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, reflects the effect to operations from trends in occupancy, room rates, operating costs, development activities and interest costs, providing perspective not immediately apparent from net income.  Our computation of FFO differs from the NAREIT definition and may differ from the methodology for calculating FFO utilized by other equity REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs because, in addition to the amount of depreciation and amortization we add back to net income or loss, we also add back the amortization of deferred financing costs and amortization of franchise application fees. FFO, whether computed in accordance with NAREIT's definition or our definition, should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends or make distributions.  Where indicated in this release, FFO is based on our definition of FFO and not the NAREIT definition of FFO unless otherwise indicated.

We further adjust FFO for certain additional items that are not included in the definition of FFO, such as hotel transaction and pursuit costs, equity based compensation, loan transaction costs, prepayment penalties and certain other expenses, which we refer to as AFFO. We believe that AFFO provides investors with another financial measure that may facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs.

We caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with our definitions of FFO and AFFO 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 and AFFO should be considered along with, but not as an alternative to, net income (loss) as a measure of our operating performance. FFO and AFFO may include funds that may not be available for our discretionary use due to functional requirements to conserve funds for capital expenditures, property acquisitions, debt service obligations and other commitments and uncertainties. Although we believe that FFO and AFFO can enhance your understanding of our financial condition and results of operations, these non-GAAP financial measures are not necessarily better indicators of any trend as compared to a comparable GAAP measure such as net income (loss). Above we have included a quantitative reconciliation of FFO and AFFO to the most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, which is net income (loss). Dollar amounts in such reconciliation are in thousands.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA

EBITDA represents net income or loss, excluding: (i) interest, (ii) income tax expense and (iii) depreciation and amortization. We believe EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance because it provides 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 it helps investors meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the effect of our asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from our operating results. Our management also uses EBITDA as one measure in determining the value of acquisitions and dispositions. We further adjust EBITDA by adding back hotel transaction and pursuit costs, equity based compensation, impairment losses and certain other nonrecurring expenses. We believe that adjusted EBITDA provides investors with another financial measure that may facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs.

With respect to hotel EBITDA, we believe that excluding the effect of corporate-level expenses, non-cash items, and the portion of these items related to discontinued operations, provides a more complete understanding of the operating results over which individual hotels and operators have direct control.  We believe the property-level results provide investors with supplemental information on the ongoing operational performance of our hotels and effectiveness of the third-party management companies operating our business on a property-level basis.

We caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with our definitions of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and hotel 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. EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and hotel EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative measure of our net income (loss) or operating performance. EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and hotel 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 EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and hotel EBITDA can enhance your understanding of our financial condition and results of operations, these non-GAAP financial measures are not necessarily a better indicator of any trend as compared to a comparable GAAP measure such as net income (loss). Above we include a quantitative reconciliation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, which is net income (loss). Because hotel EBITDA is specific to individual hotels or groups of hotels and not to the Company as a whole, it is not directly comparable to any GAAP measure. Accordingly, hotel EBITDA has not been reconciled back to net income or loss, or any other GAAP measure, and hotel EBITDA should not be relied on as a measure of performance for our portfolio of hotels taken as a whole. Dollar amounts in such reconciliation are in thousands.
