John Murray, President and Chief Operating Officer of Hospitality Properties Trust, stated, “In the first quarter of 2014, we continued to see significant progress on our strategic initiatives that include transforming HPT’s full service, select service and extended stay hotel portfolio through an extensive capital program and asset management focus. The success of these programs is evidenced by our first quarter 2014 results which demonstrate strong growth in RevPAR and cash flows available to pay HPT’s minimum returns and rents. Our hotel portfolio produced outsized RevPAR returns relative to the industry. Additionally, the steps we took this quarter to increase our liquidity position, which included amending our $1.15 billion unsecured term loan and revolving credit agreements as well as a senior note offering to refinance our most expensive debt, give us the capital and flexibility we need to complete remaining renovations and continue to selectively add to our portfolio.”

First Quarter Results and Recent Activities:

  • Net Income Available for Common Shareholders: Net income available for common shareholders for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 was $32.4 million, or $0.22 per share, compared to $19.4 million, or $0.15 per share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.
  • Normalized FFO: Normalized FFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 were $112.7 million, or $0.75 per share, compared to Normalized FFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 of $93.2 million, or $0.74 per share. The 21.0% increase in Normalized FFO is due primarily to increases in annual minimum returns and rents that resulted from HPT’s funding of improvements to its hotels and travel centers and the impact of HPT’s 2013 hotel acquisitions. On a per share basis, the percentage increase in Normalized FFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 was impacted by the increase in HPT’s weighted average number of shares outstanding.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 compared to the same period in 2013 increased 12.7% to $155.0 million.
  • Comparable Hotel RevPAR: For the quarter ended March 31, 2014 compared to the same period in 2013 for HPT’s 289 hotels that it owned continuously since January 1, 2013, or comparable hotels: average daily rate, or ADR, increased 3.3% to $110.11; occupancy increased 4.4 percentage points to 70.7%; and revenue per available room, or RevPAR, increased 10.1% to $77.85.
  • Comparable RevPAR for Hotels Not Under Renovation: During the quarter ended March 31, 2014, HPT had 18 comparable hotels under renovation for all or part of the quarter. For the quarter ended March 31, 2014 compared to the same period in 2013 for HPT’s 271 comparable hotels not under renovation: ADR increased 3.0% to $109.82; occupancy increased 5.5 percentage points to 71.8%; and RevPAR increased 11.6% to $78.85.
  • Hotel Coverage of Minimum Returns and Rents: For the three months ended March 31, 2014, the aggregate coverage ratio of (x) total property level revenues minus FF&E reserve escrows, if any, and all property level expenses which are not subordinated to minimum returns and minimum rent payments to HPT to (y) HPT’s minimum returns and rents due from hotels was 0.74x. As of March 31, 2014, approximately 70% of HPT’s aggregate annual minimum returns and rents from its hotels were secured by guarantees and security deposits from HPT’s managers and tenants pursuant to the terms of its hotel operating agreements.
  • Dividend Increase: On April 8, 2014, HPT announced that it had raised its regular quarterly common share distribution by $0.01 to $0.49 per common share ($1.96 per share per year).
  • Investment and Disposition Activity: In February 2014, HPT terminated a previously disclosed agreement to acquire a hotel located in Orlando, FL which had a contract purchase price of $21.0 million. HPT terminated this agreement based upon its diligence findings.

In March 2014, HPT entered an agreement to acquire a 240 room full service hotel located in Ft. Lauderdale, FL for $65.0 million, excluding closing costs. HPT plans to convert this hotel to a “Sonesta” brand hotel and add it to its management contract with Sonesta International Hotels Corporation, or Sonesta.

In April 2014, HPT sold its Sonesta ES Suites branded hotel in Myrtle Beach, SC for $4.5 million, excluding closing costs.

  • Capital Markets: In January 2014, HPT entered into an amended and restated credit agreement for $1.15 billion, which included its existing $750.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility and existing $400.0 million unsecured term loan.
  • Under the amendment, the maturity date of HPT’s $750.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility was extended from September 7, 2015 to July 15, 2018. The interest rate paid on borrowings under the revolving credit facility agreement was reduced from LIBOR plus a premium of 130 basis points to LIBOR plus a premium of 110 basis points, and the facility fee was reduced from 30 basis points to 20 basis points per annum on the total amount of lending commitments. Both the interest rate premium and facility fee are subject to adjustment based upon changes to HPT’s credit ratings. Subject to meeting certain conditions and payment of a fee, HPT may extend the maturity date to July 15, 2019.
  • Under the amendment, the maturity date of HPT’s $400.0 million unsecured term loan was extended from March 13, 2017 to April 15, 2019. The interest paid on borrowings under the term loan was reduced from LIBOR plus 145 basis points to LIBOR plus 120 basis points. The interest rate premium is subject to adjustments based on changes to HPT’s credit ratings. HPT may prepay the term loan without penalty at any time.

In February 2014, HPT redeemed at par plus accrued interest all $300.0 million of its 7.875% Senior Notes due 2014.

In March 2014, HPT issued $350.0 million of 4.65% unsecured senior notes due in 2024 in a public offering. Net proceeds from this offering ($346.0 million after underwriting and other offering expenses) were used to repay amounts outstanding under its revolving credit facility including amounts drawn to fund the redemption of HPT’s 7.875% Senior Notes described above.

Tenants and Managers: As of March 31, 2014, HPT had nine operating agreements with seven hotel operating companies for 291 hotels with 43,977 rooms, which represent 67% of HPT’s total annual minimum returns and rents.

  • Marriott Agreements: During the three months ended March 31, 2014, 122 hotels owned by HPT were operated by subsidiaries of Marriott International, Inc. (MAR), or Marriott, under three contracts. Marriott contract No. 1 includes 53 hotels and provides for annual minimum return payments to HPT of up to $67.6 million (approximately $16.9 million per quarter). Because there is no guarantee or security deposit for this contract, the minimum returns HPT receives under this contract are limited to available hotel cash flow after payment of operating expenses. During the three months ended March 31, 2014, HPT realized returns under its Marriott contract No. 1 of $15.0 million. Marriott contract No. 234 includes 68 hotels and requires annual minimum returns to HPT of $105.8 million (approximately $26.5 million per quarter). During the three months ended March 31, 2014, HPT realized returns under its Marriott contract No. 234 of $23.8 million. During the three months ended March 31, 2014, Marriott provided $2.5 million of guaranty payments to HPT. At March 31, 2014, there was $28.1 million remaining under Marriott’s guaranty for the Marriott contract No. 234 to cover future payment shortfalls for up to 90% of the minimum returns due to HPT. Marriott contract No. 5 includes one resort hotel in Kauai, HI which is leased to Marriott on a full recourse basis. The contractual rent due HPT for this hotel for the three months ended March 31, 2014 of $2.5 million was paid to HPT.
  • InterContinental Agreement: During the three months ended March 31, 2014, HPT realized returns of $34.9 million under its management contract with subsidiaries of InterContinental Hotels Group, plc (LON: IHG; NYSE: IHG (ADRs)), or InterContinental, which includes 91 hotels and requires annual minimum returns to HPT of $139.5 million (approximately $34.9 million per quarter). HPT applied $2.4 million of the available security deposit during the quarter to cover payment shortfalls during the three months ended March 31, 2014. During the three months ended March 31, 2014, InterContinental provided $4.3 million of additional security deposits in order to maintain the minimum security deposit balance required under the agreement. At March 31, 2014, the available security deposit which HPT held to cover future payment shortfalls was $29.6 million.
  • Other Hotel Agreements: As of March 31, 2014, HPT’s remaining 78 hotels are operated under five contracts: one management agreement with Sonesta (22 hotels) requiring annual minimum returns of $60.1 million (approximately $15.0 million per quarter); one management contract with a subsidiary of Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (WYN), or Wyndham (22 hotels), requiring annual minimum returns of $26.6 million per year (approximately $6.7 million per quarter); one management contract with a subsidiary of Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H), or Hyatt (22 hotels), requiring annual minimum returns of $22.0 million (approximately $5.5 million per quarter); one management contract with a subsidiary of Carlson Hotels Worldwide, or Carlson (11 hotels), requiring annual minimum returns of $12.9 million (approximately $3.2 million per quarter); and one lease with a subsidiary of Morgans Hotel Group Co. (MHGC) (1 hotel) requiring annual minimum rent of $6.0 million (approximately $1.5 million per quarter). Minimum returns and rents due HPT are partially guaranteed under the Wyndham, Hyatt and Carlson contracts. There is no guarantee or security deposit for the Sonesta contract and the minimum returns HPT receives under this contract are limited to available hotel cash flow after payment of operating expenses. The payments due to HPT under these contracts for the three months ended March 31, 2014 were paid to HPT.
  • Travel Center Agreements: As of March 31, 2014, HPT had two leases with TravelCenters of America LLC (TA), or TA, for 185 travel centers located along the U.S. Interstate Highway system which represent 33% of HPT’s total annual minimum returns and rents. As of March 31, 2014, all payments due to HPT from TA under these leases were current. Coverage data for the three months ended March 31, 2014 for TA is currently unavailable.

(1) At March 31, 2014, HPT owned 291 hotels; 288 of these hotels are leased by HPT to its taxable REIT subsidiaries, or TRSs, and managed by hotel operating companies and three hotels are leased to hotel operating companies. At March 31, 2014, HPT also owned 184 travel centers and leased one travel center from a third party; all 185 of these travel centers are leased or subleased by HPT to a travel center operating company under two lease agreements. HPT’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income include hotel operating revenues and expenses of managed hotels and rental income from its leased hotels and travel centers. Certain of HPT’s managed hotels had net operating results that were, in the aggregate, $28,095 and $33,007, less than the minimum returns due to it in the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. When the managers of these hotels fund the shortfalls under the terms of HPT’s operating agreements or their guarantees, HPT reflects such fundings (including security deposit applications) in its Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income as a reduction of hotel operating expenses. The reduction to hotel operating expenses was $10,876 and $14,908 in the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. HPT had shortfalls at certain of its managed hotel portfolios not funded by the managers of these hotels under the terms of its operating agreements of $17,219 and $18,099 in the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively, which represents the unguaranteed portions of HPT’s minimum returns from Marriott and from Sonesta.

(2) Various percentages of total sales at certain of HPT’s hotels are escrowed as reserves for future renovations or refurbishment, or FF&E reserve escrows. HPT owns all the FF&E reserve escrows for its hotels. HPT reports deposits by its third party tenants into the escrow accounts as FF&E reserve income. HPT does not report the amounts which are escrowed as FF&E reserves for its managed hotels as FF&E reserve income.

(3) Represents costs associated with HPT’s hotel acquisition activities.

(4) HPT recorded a $214 loss on early extinguishment of debt in the first quarter of 2014 in connection with amending the terms of its revolving credit facility and term loan.

(5) HPT calculates FFO and Normalized FFO as shown above. FFO is calculated on the basis defined by The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, which is net income, calculated in accordance with GAAP, excluding any gain or loss on sale of properties and loss on impairment of real estate assets, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, as well as certain other adjustments currently not applicable to HPT. HPT’s calculation of Normalized FFO differs from NAREIT's definition of FFO because it includes estimated percentage rent in the period to which it estimates that it relates rather than when it is recognized as income in accordance with GAAP and excludes acquisition related costs, loss on early extinguishment of debt and estimated business management incentive fees. HPT considers FFO and Normalized FFO to be appropriate measures of operating performance for a REIT, along with net income, net income available for common shareholders, operating income and cash flow from operating activities. HPT believes that FFO and Normalized FFO provide useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain historical amounts, such as depreciation expense, FFO and Normalized FFO may facilitate a comparison of HPT’s operating performance between periods and with other REITs. FFO and Normalized FFO are among the factors considered by HPT’s Board of Trustees when determining the amount of distributions to shareholders. Other factors include, but are not limited to, requirements to maintain HPT’s status as a REIT, limitations in its revolving credit facility and term loan agreement and public debt covenants, the availability of debt and equity capital to HPT, HPT’s expectation of its future capital requirements and operating performance, and its expected needs for and availability of cash to pay its obligations. FFO and Normalized FFO do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, operating income, net income available for common shareholders or cash flow from operating activities, determined in accordance with GAAP, or as indicators of HPT’s financial performance or liquidity, nor are these measures necessarily indicative of sufficient cash flow to fund all of HPT’s needs. These measures should be considered in conjunction with net income, operating income, net income available for common shareholders and cash flow from operating activities as presented in HPT’s condensed consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income and condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. Other REITs and real estate companies may calculate FFO and Normalized FFO differently than HPT does.

(6) In calculating net income in accordance with GAAP, HPT recognizes percentage rental income received for the first, second and third quarters in the fourth quarter, which is when all contingencies have been met and the income is earned. Although HPT defers recognition of this revenue until the fourth quarter for purposes of calculating net income, HPT includes these estimated amounts in the calculation of Normalized FFO and Adjusted EBITDA for each quarter of the year. The fourth quarter Normalized FFO calculation excludes the amounts recognized during the first three quarters.

(7) Amounts represent estimated incentive fees under HPT’s business management agreement payable in common shares after the end of each calendar year calculated: (i) prior to 2014 based upon increases in annual cash available for distribution per share, as defined, and (ii) beginning in 2014 based on common share total return. In calculating net income in accordance with GAAP, HPT recognizes estimated business management incentive fee expense each quarter. Although HPT recognizes this expense each quarter for purposes of calculating net income, HPT does not include these amounts in the calculation of Normalized FFO until the fourth quarter, which is when the actual expense amount for the year is determined. Adjustments were made to prior period amounts to conform to the current period Normalized FFO calculation.

(8) HPT calculates EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as shown above. HPT considers EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be appropriate measures of its operating performance, along with net income, net income available for common shareholders, operating income and cash flow from operating activities. HPT believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain historical amounts, such as interest, depreciation and amortization expense, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may facilitate a comparison of current operating performance with its past operating performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered an alternative to net income, net income available for common shareholders, operating income or cash flow from operating activities, determined in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of financial performance or liquidity, nor are these measures necessarily indicative of sufficient cash flow to fund all of HPT’s needs. These measures should be considered in conjunction with net income, operating income, net income available for common shareholders and cash flow from operating activities as presented in HPT’s condensed consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income and condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. Other REITs and real estate companies may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than HPT does.

(9) Amounts represent the portion of business management and incentive fees that are payable in HPT’s common shares as well as equity based compensation for HPT’s trustees, officers and certain employees of HPT’s manager. Adjustments were made to prior period amounts to conform to the current period Adjusted EBITDA calculation.
