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 Margins," "FFO" and "Adjusted FFO." Moreover, the discussions of "Pro Forma RevPAR" and "Pro Forma Hotel Adjusted EBITDA Margins" assume the Company owned all of its 23 hotels since January 1, 2009.  All other discussions of RevPAR and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA Margins assume that the three acquired hotels were owned by the Company for the period of 2009 comparable to its 2010 ownership period.

For the fourth quarter beginning September 11, 2010 and ended December 31, 2010, the Company reported the following:

  • Pro Forma RevPAR increase of 8.3% and Pro Forma Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin increase of 398 basis points.
  • Revenues of $209.3 million compared to $175.7 million for the comparable period in 2009.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $51.2 million compared to $32.9 million for the comparable period in 2009.
  • Adjusted FFO of $34.3 million and Adjusted FFO per diluted share of $0.22 compared to $22.1 million and $0.18, respectively, for the comparable period in 2009.  
  • Net income of $1.9 million (or $0.01 per diluted share) compared to net loss of $9.0 million (or $0.07 per diluted share) for the comparable period in 2009.

Including acquisitions for the Company's 2010 ownership period only, fourth quarter RevPAR increased 8.3 percent (from $103.01 to $111.54) from the comparable period in 2009, driven by a 4.5 percent increase in the average daily rate (from $155.36 to $162.28) and a 2.4 percentage point increase in occupancy (from 66.3 percent to 68.7 percent). Fourth quarter Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 399 basis points (from 22.37% to 26.36%) from the comparable period in 2009. The calculation of RevPAR has been adjusted to account for the 80 rooms out of service at Frenchman's Reef during the Hurricane Earl remediation, which occurred from September 1, 2010 through December 20, 2010.

For the year 2010, the Company reported the following:

  • Pro Forma RevPAR increase of 4.8% and Pro Forma Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin increase of 153 basis points. Pro Forma RevPAR and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin changes are calculated assuming the Company owned all of its 23 hotels for the entire years of 2010 and 2009.
  • Revenues of $624.4 million compared to $575.7 million for the comparable period in 2009.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $138.5 million compared to $113.4 million for the comparable period in 2009.
  • Adjusted FFO of $90.3 million and Adjusted FFO per diluted share of $0.63 compared to $82.8 million and $0.77, respectively, for the comparable period in 2009.  
  • Net loss of $9.2 million (or $0.06 per diluted share) compared to net loss of $11.1 million (or $0.10 per diluted share) for the comparable period in 2009.

Including acquisitions for the Company's 2010 ownership period only, full year RevPAR increased 4.5 percent (from $104.68 to $109.40) from the comparable period in 2009, driven by a 2.4 percentage point increase in occupancy (from 68.1 percent to 70.5 percent) and a 1.0 percent increase in the average daily rate (from $153.74 to $155.29). Full year Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 144 basis points (from 22.81% to 24.25%) from the comparable period in 2009. The calculation of RevPAR has been adjusted to account for the 80 rooms out of service at Frenchman's Reef during the Hurricane Earl remediation, which occurred from September 1, 2010 through December 20, 2010.

2010 Hotel Acquisitions

The Company acquired three hotels in 2010. These three hotels had an average full year RevPAR growth of 11.5% over 2009.  

On June 16, 2010, the Company acquired the 821-room Hilton Minneapolis in Minneapolis, Minnesota, for total consideration of approximately $157 million.  The Minneapolis hotel market exceeded industry growth as shown by the full year 2010 RevPAR increase of approximately 7.8% for this hotel.  The growth outlook for the Hilton Minneapolis remains strong with the 2011 booking pace up over 11% compared to the same time last year.    

On August 6, 2010, the Company acquired the 166-room Renaissance Charleston Historic District Hotel in Charleston, South Carolina for total consideration of approximately $40 million.  The "off-market" acquisition was sourced through the Company's strategic sourcing relationship with Marriott International, Inc.  The hotel is located in Charleston's historic district and is proximate to historical attractions, shopping and dining in downtown Charleston.  This hotel experienced RevPAR growth in the fourth quarter of almost 10%. In addition, the demand from Boeing continued to accelerate during the fourth quarter as the construction on the Dreamliner production plant in Charleston progressed.

On September 8, 2010, the Company acquired the 169-room Hilton Garden Inn Chelsea located in New York City for total consideration of approximately $69 million.  The Company retained the existing manager subject to a new, short-term management agreement.  The hotel is recently constructed and opened during the fourth quarter of 2007. The hotel benefited from the continuing resurgence in the New York City hotel market, with RevPAR growth of over 27% in the fourth quarter and over 25% for the full year.  

Times Square Development Acquisition

On January 18, 2011, the Company entered into a purchase and sale agreement to acquire, upon completion (expected in 2013), a hotel property under development on West 42nd Street in Times Square, New York City. Upon completion by the third-party developer, the hotel is expected to contain approximately 250 to 300 guestrooms. The contractual purchase price will range from approximately $112.5 million to $135 million, depending upon the final number of guestrooms, or approximately $450,000 per guestroom. The number of guestrooms could be increased to approximately 400 guest rooms if certain required permits, approvals and consents are obtained, which would result in the contractual purchase price increasing to approximately $178 million, or $445,000 per guestroom. The contract is for a fixed-price (which varies only by total guestrooms built and the completion date for the hotel) and the Company is not assuming any construction risk, including not assuming the risk of construction cost overruns.  

Follow-on Equity Offering

The Company completed a follow-on public offering of its common stock during January 2011.  The Company sold 12,418,662 shares of its common stock, including exercise of the underwriter's option to purchase 1,418,662 additional shares, at an offering price of $12.07 per share.  The net proceeds, after deduction of offering costs, were approximately $149.6 million.

Dividends

The Company's Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.08 per share to stockholders of record as of March 25, 2011.  The dividend will be paid on April 7, 2011.

New Line of Credit

On August 6, 2010, the Company amended and restated its $200 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility for a new term of 3 years.  The Company may extend the maturity date of the credit agreement for an additional year upon the payment of applicable fees and satisfaction of certain customary conditions.  The interest rate for the credit facility ranges from 275 to 375 basis points over LIBOR, depending on the Company's leverage.  The credit facility has a LIBOR floor of 100 basis points.  The facility may be increased to $275 million with the lenders' consent.

Frenchman's Reef Repositioning Update

The Company is continuing to execute on its comprehensive $45 million capital investment program at the Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort ("Frenchman's Reef").  The Company will exclude Frenchman's Reef from its comparable hotels when reporting 2011 hotel operating statistics in order to give investors a more accurate portrait of the performance of its portfolio compared to national trends.

The repositioning program is projected to include the following key elements:

  • Reinvented Pool – The Company plans a major redesign of the pool with state of the art features, including multiple pools, cascading waterfalls, Bali beds, a sundeck and a new swim-up bar.
  • Guestroom Renovation – Each of the guestrooms and bathrooms is expected to feature new modern design elements to enhance lighting, comfort and feel. A renowned interior design firm is the designer for the new guestrooms and bathrooms.
  • Spa Upgrade and Expansion – The Company plans to reinvent and double the size of the existing spa. The plans incorporate the creation of a dedicated spa pool and additional treatment rooms.
  • Infrastructure Improvements – The Company intends to invest $15 million to comprehensively redesign the mechanical plant to allow the hotel to generate its own electricity, improve air flow in common spaces and replace packaged terminal air conditioners in the guestrooms with a central system. These enhancements are expected to greatly reduce the energy consumption and cost per kilowatt hour and generate a significant return on investment while improving guest comfort.
  • Other Resort Upgrades – In addition to the above, the Company intends to provide for upgrades to the food and beverage outlets, renovation of the main ballroom, balcony upgrades, renovations to the boat dock and improvements to other facilities designed to enhance the guest experience.

The majority of the renovation and repositioning program is expected to occur during the summer of 2011 when two of the resort's four buildings (representing approximately 300 guestrooms) will close during the seasonally slow period between May and September.  During this time, the Company expects renovation disruption to displace approximately $14 million in hotel revenue and $5.5 million in Hotel Adjusted EBITDA compared to the same period in 2010.

The Company intends to fund the renovation and repositioning program from available corporate cash and, if necessary, borrowings under its credit facility. Marriott has agreed to fund a portion of the expense, demonstrating its commitment to Frenchman's Reef.  In addition to funding from Marriott and existing escrow reserves, the Company expects its total cash expenditure to be approximately $35 million over the next two years.

Elements of the renovation and repositioning program began during the third quarter of 2010. In order to minimize disruption by taking advantage of the low occupancy summer months, several projects in the Sea Cliff tower were started in August 2010, including installation of a new roof, tile surrounds in the guest bathrooms and balcony upgrades. The hotel was damaged by Hurricane Earl, which impacted the U.S. Virgin Islands during the Sea Cliff construction in late August 2010. The remediation costs related to the damage caused by Hurricane Earl were below the Company's insurance policy deductible for damages from a named windstorm event.  The Company incurred $1.6 million during 2010 to remediate damage from Hurricane Earl, which is added back to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO due to the unusual nature of these costs.

Extension of Frenchman's Reef Tax Holiday

The Company was party to a tax agreement with the USVI that reduced the income tax rate for Frenchman's Reef to approximately 4%.  This agreement expired in February 2010, at which time the income tax rate increased to 37.4%. On December 13, 2010, the Governor of the USVI approved an extension of the tax agreement for a period of 5 years, retroactive to February 2010 and subject to another renewal in February 2015. The extension modified the tax exemption rates from the previous agreement.  The income tax rate is now approximately 7%, an 81% exemption.  Furthermore, the Company is now subject to a 90% exemption from real estate and gross receipt taxes, which are recorded in other hotel expenses, whereas it was 100% exempt under the prior tax agreement.  

Allerton Hotel Mortgage Loan Update

The Company owns the senior mortgage loan secured by the Allerton Hotel, located in downtown Chicago, Illinois. The loan matured in January 2010 and is in default.  The Company continues to prosecute the foreclosure initially filed in April 2010, which would result in DiamondRock owning the Allerton Hotel. However, no assurance can be given that the foreclosure proceedings will be successful.  The matter may be resolved without foreclosure if the borrower repays the senior loan in full, including any default interest.  Recognition of interest income on the Allerton loan is dependent upon having a reasonable expectation about the timing and amount of cash payments expected to be collected from the borrower.  Due to the uncertainty of the timing and amount of cash payments expected, the Company is not accruing any interest income on the Allerton loan.  However, the Company includes all cash received from the borrower in its calculations of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO.  As of December 31, 2010, the Company had received cash interest payments from the borrower totaling $2.7 million.  Subsequent to December 31, 2010, the Company received an additional $0.1 million in cash interest payments. The Company's 2011 Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO guidance assumes $3.0 million of cash interest payments received on the Allerton loan.

Balance Sheet

As of the end of 2010, the Company had approximately $84 million of unrestricted cash on hand and $781 million of debt outstanding, which consisted solely of fixed rate, property-specific mortgage debt with no near-term maturities.  Thirteen of the Company's 23 hotels are unencumbered by mortgage debt and the Company's $200 million senior unsecured credit facility remains untapped. Following the January 2011 equity offering and payment of the deposit on the Times Square development hotel, the Company currently has over $210 million of unrestricted cash on hand.

The Company continues to maintain its straightforward capital structure.  As of December 31, 2010, the Company had no preferred equity outstanding and continued to own 100% of its properties directly.

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 RevPAR guidance assumes that the acquired hotels were owned by the Company for all of 2010 and excludes Frenchman's Reef for all of 2011 because it will be partially closed for the planned renovation. In addition, no acquisitions are assumed in 2011 for purposes of providing guidance.

The Company's outlook for 2011 is based on continuing positive economic and travel trends.  In particular, the Company now expects:

  • Hotel industry RevPAR growth of 6 percent to 8 percent from 2010.
  • DiamondRock's portfolio RevPAR to increase 6 percent to 8 percent from 2010.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $156 million to $160 million.
  • Adjusted FFO of $100 million to $103 million, which assumes income tax expense to range from $7 million to $9 million.
  • Adjusted FFO per share of $0.60 to $0.62 based on 166.7 million diluted weighted average shares.

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of federal securities laws and regulations. These forward-looking statements are identified by their use of terms and phrases such as "believe," "expect," "intend," "project," "forecast," "plan" and other similar terms and phrases, including references to assumptions and forecasts of future results.  Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results to differ materially from those anticipated at the time the forward-looking statements are made.  These risks include, but are not limited to: national and local economic and business conditions, including the potential for additional terrorist attacks, that will affect occupancy rates at the Company's hotels and the demand for hotel products and services; operating risks associated with the hotel business; risks associated with the level of the Company's indebtedness; relationships with property managers; the ability to compete effectively in areas such as access, location, quality of accommodations and room rate structures; changes in travel patterns, taxes and government regulations which influence or determine wages, prices, construction procedures and costs; risks associated with the foreclosure proceedings on the Allerton Hotel; risks associated with the development of a hotel by a third-party developer; risks associated with the planned renovation and repositioning of the Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort and other risk factors contained in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Although the Company believes the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, it can give no assurance that the expectations will be attained or that any deviation will not be material. All information in this release is as of the date of this release, and the Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to conform the statement to actual results or changes in the Company's expectations.

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 and Alliance Hospitality Management, manager of the Hilton Garden Inn Chelsea 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 or Hilton Garden Inn Chelsea 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 and Marriott International make mid-month results available. As a result, the quarterly results of operations include results from Frenchman's Reef, Westin Atlanta North, Vail Marriott, Conrad Chicago, Westin Boston Waterfront, Hilton Minneapolis and Hilton Garden Inn Chelsea 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.

Ground Leases

Five of the Company's hotels are subject to ground leases: Bethesda Marriott Suites, Courtyard Manhattan Fifth Avenue, Salt Lake City Downtown Marriott, Westin Boston Waterfront and Hilton Minneapolis.  In addition, part of a parking structure at a sixth hotel and the golf courses at two additional hotels are also subject to ground leases.  In accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, the Company records rent expense on a straight-line basis for ground leases that provide minimal rental payments that increase in pre-established amounts over the remaining term of the ground lease.  For the fourth quarter 2010, contractual cash rent payable on the ground leases totaled $2.4 million and the Company recorded approximately $4.4 million in ground rent expense.  The non-cash portion of ground rent expense recorded for the fourth quarter 2010 was $2.0 million.  The Company's 2011 guidance assumes ground rent expense of approximately $14 million, which consists of approximately $8 million of contractual ground rent and non-cash ground rent of approximately $6 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses the following four non-GAAP financial measures that it believes are useful to investors as key measures of its operating performance: (1) EBITDA, (2) FFO, (3) Adjusted EBITDA and (4) Adjusted 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. The Company believes EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating its operating performance because it helps investors evaluate and compare the results of its operations from period to period by removing the impact of the Company's capital structure (primarily interest expense) and its asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from its operating results.  The Company also uses 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 (losses) from sales of property, 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.

The Company also evaluates its performance by reviewing Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO because it believes that the exclusion of certain additional recurring and non-recurring items described below provides useful supplemental information regarding the Company's ongoing operating performance and that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO, when combined with the primary GAAP presentation of net income (loss), is beneficial to a complete understanding of the Company's operating performance. The Company adjusts EBITDA and FFO for the following items, which may occur in any period, and refers to these measures as Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO:

  • Non-Cash Ground Rent: The Company excludes the non-cash expense incurred from straight lining the rent from its ground lease obligations and the non-cash amortization of its favorable lease assets.
  • The impact of the non-cash amortization of the unfavorable contract liabilities recorded in conjunction with the Company's acquisitions of the Bethesda Marriott Suites and the Chicago Marriott Downtown.  The amortization of the unfavorable contract liabilities does not reflect the underlying performance of the Company.
  • 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.  The Company excludes these one-time adjustments because they do not reflect its actual performance for that period.
  • Gains from Early Extinguishment of Debt: The Company excludes the effect of gains recorded on the early extinguishment of debt because it believes that including them in EBITDA and FFO is not consistent with reflecting the ongoing performance of its hotels.
  • Impairment Losses: The Company excludes the effect of impairment losses recorded because it believes that including them in EBITDA and FFO is not consistent with reflecting the ongoing performance of its assets.  In addition, the Company believes that impairment charges are similar to depreciation expense, which is also excluded from EBITDA and FFO.
  • Gains or Losses on Dispositions: The Company excludes the effect of gains or losses on dispositions from EBITDA because it believes that including them is not consistent with reflecting the ongoing performance of its remaining assets.  In addition, gains and losses on dispositions are excluded from the calculation of FFO in accordance with NAREIT standards.
  • Acquisition Costs:  The Company excludes acquisition transaction costs expensed during the period because it believes that including these costs in EBITDA and FFO is not consistent with the underlying performance of the Company.
  • Mortgage Loan Interest Payments Received:  The Company includes cash payments received on its senior loan secured by the Allerton Hotel in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO. GAAP requires the Company to record the cash received from the borrower as a reduction of its basis in the mortgage loan due to the uncertainty over the timing and amount of cash payments on the loan.  The Company believes that these cash payments reflect its return on its investment in the mortgage loan and should be included in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted FFO as they relate to the operating performance of the Company.
  • Other Non-Cash and / or Unusual Items:  The Company excludes the effect of certain non-cash and/or unusual items because it believes that including these costs in EBITDA and FFO is not consistent with the underlying performance of the Company.  The Company excluded the remediation costs incurred in connection with the Hurricane Earl damage to Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort due to the unusual nature of the hurricane damage.

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 and the Renaissance Charleston and the unusual hurricane damage at the Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort. 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.
