ENHANCED RETURN FUNDING PROGRAM WITH BRAEMAR HOTELS & RESORTS

On January 17, 2019, the Company announced that it entered into an agreement with Braemar Hotels & Resorts, Inc. (BHR) ("Braemar") for the new Enhanced Return Funding Program ("ERFP" or the "Program").  Under the Program with Braemar, the Company has agreed to provide up to $50 million in connection with the acquisition by Braemar of additional hotels. Ashford will provide 10% of the purchase price of each hotel acquired by Braemar up to $500 million in total acquisitions. The Program is expected to generate attractive returns on invested capital for Ashford via incremental base advisory fees, potential incentive fees, fees for various products and services offered, and tax savings.   

Braemar's acquisition of the Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe located in Truckee, California, which was completed on January 15, 2019, is the first hotel acquisition by Braemar to benefit from the Program. In connection with this acquisition, and subject to the terms of the ERFP, the Company has committed to providing Braemar with approximately $10.3 million of cash via the future purchase of hotel furniture, fixtures, and equipment ("FF&E") at Braemar properties.

ENHANCED RETURN FUNDING PROGRAM WITH ASHFORD TRUST

During the second quarter of 2018, the Company entered into an agreement with Ashford Hospitality Trust, Inc. (AHT) ("Ashford Trust" or "Trust") for an ERFP. Under the Program with Trust, the Company agreed to provide $50 million in connection with the acquisition by Trust of additional hotels. Ashford will provide 10% of the purchase price of each hotel acquired by Trust, and, to date, Trust has acquired four hotels for a combined $406 million under the Program.

During the quarter, Trust completed the acquisition of the Embassy Suites New York Midtown Manhattan in New York, New York for $195 million, which is the third Trust hotel acquisition to benefit from the ERFP. In connection with the acquisition, the Company has committed to provide Ashford Trust with approximately $19.5 million of cash under the ERFP via the future purchase of FF&E at Trust properties.

During the quarter, Trust completed the acquisition of the Hilton Santa Cruz/Scotts Valley in Santa Cruz, California for $50 million, becoming the fourth Trust hotel acquisition to benefit from the ERFP. In connection with the acquisition, the Company provided Ashford Trust with approximately $5 million of cash under the ERFP via the purchase of FF&E at Trust properties.

PREMIER PROJECT MANAGEMENT UPDATE

In August 2018, the Company completed the acquisition of Premier Project Management ("Premier") for $203 million.  Premier provides comprehensive and cost-effective design, development, and project management services. It provides project oversight, coordination, planning, and execution of renovation, capital expenditure or ground-up development projects. Its operations are responsible for managing and implementing substantially all capital improvements at Ashford Trust and Braemar hotels. Additionally, it has extensive experience working with many of the major hotel brands in the areas of renovating, converting, developing or repositioning hotels. Premier generated $7.8 million of revenue and $3.7 million of Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter, including $800,000 of revenue from its new architectural services initiative.

J&S AUDIO VISUAL UPDATE

The Company owns a controlling interest in a privately-held company that conducts the business of J&S Audio Visual in the United States, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic ("J&S"). J&S provides an integrated suite of audio visual services, including show and event services, hospitality services, creative services, and design and integration, making J&S a leading single-source solution for their clients' meeting and event needs.  During the quarter, J&S completed the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of BAV, an integrated provider of audio and visual services based in Buffalo, New York, for approximately $5 million in cash and $4 million of Ashford common stock (excluding transaction costs, working capital adjustments, and contingent consideration). After giving effect to the transaction, the Company owns an approximate 88% interest in the common equity of J&S.  With over 30 years of operating history, BAV provides integrated single-source audio visual services with a well-diversified geographical presence and customer base.  BAV has a strong presence in many east coast markets, including New York and Washington D.C., with an operational presence in approximately 32 states across the U.S. representing approximately 100 clients and nearly 200 events annually.  BAV's estimated customer retention rate is approximately 90% which highlights the high level of customer service, professional production quality, and unique, tailored solutions the company provides.  J&S expects revenue, market, service offering and customer diversification benefits considering BAV's focus on customer satisfaction and professional quality. BAV does not currently have any contracts in place with Ashford asset-managed hotels.  During the first quarter, J&S had revenue growth of 33% compared to the prior-year period.  Additionally, at the end of the first quarter, J&S had multi-year contracts in place with 84 hotels and convention centers, in addition to regular business representing over 2,700 annual events and productions, 500 venue locations, and 750 clients. 

RED HOSPITALITY & LEISURE UPDATE

RED Hospitality & Leisure ("RED Hospitality") is a leading provider of watersports activities and other travel and transportation services in the U.S. Virgin Islands. RED Hospitality has several potential future avenues for growth, including: opportunities to expand into several other hotels at Ashford-advised REIT platforms; expansion in the USVI, elsewhere in the Caribbean market, and the U.S. To that end, with the commencement of ferry transportation services and beach and watersports services to the Westin St. John in January, continued beach and watersports services to the Ritz-Carlton St. Thomas Club - the timeshare and rental property adjacent to the Ritz-Carlton St. Thomas hotel - and increased direct bookings and private charter business, in the first quarter, RED Hospitality generated $1.6 million of revenue and $394,000 of Adjusted EBITDA. First quarter revenue growth was 509% compared to the prior-year period, and Adjusted EBITDA growth was 359% compared to the prior-year period. Moreover, RED Hospitality generated more Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter this year than in the full year 2018.

FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the quarter totaled $2.6 million, or $1.13 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $5.7 million, or $2.84 per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter.  Adjusted net income for the quarter was $10.1 million, or $2.39 per diluted share, compared with $4.6 million, or $1.72 per diluted share in the prior-year quarter.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2019, base advisory fee revenue was $10.6 million.  The base advisory fee revenue in the first quarter was comprised of $8.0 million from Ashford Trust and $2.6 million from Braemar.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $11.3 million, compared with $5.4 million for the first quarter of 2018, reflecting a growth rate of 110%.

CAPITAL STRUCTURE

At the end of the first quarter of 2019, the Company had approximately $7.0 billion of assets under management from its advised platforms.  The Company had corporate cash of $37.0 million, 2.8 million fully diluted shares, and a current fully diluted equity market capitalization of approximately $153 million.  The Company's financial results include 1.45 million common shares associated with its Series B convertible preferred stock.  The Company had $24.9 million of loans at March 31, 2019, of which approximately $3.2 million related to its joint venture partners' share of those loans.

"We also remain excited about our Enhanced Return Funding Program with our advised platforms. To date, the ERFP initiative has resulted in the acquisition of five high-quality hotels totaling over $500 million in new assets, and these two Programs should continue to create substantial growth in assets under management for us while also delivering attractive returns to our shareholders and the shareholders of our advised platforms.

The Company will conduct a conference call on Friday, May 3, 2019, at 12:00 p.m. ET.  The number for this interactive teleconference is (323) 794-2588.  A replay of the conference call will be available through Friday, May 10, 2019, by dialing (719) 457-0820 and entering the confirmation number 2573500.

Included in this press release are certain supplemental measures of performance which are not measures of operating performance under GAAP, to assist investors in evaluating the Company's historical or future financial performance. These supplemental measures include adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") and Adjusted Net Income. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income provide investors and management with a meaningful indicator of operating performance. Management also uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income, among other measures, to evaluate profitability and our board of directors includes these measures in reviews to determine quarterly distributions to stockholders. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA by subtracting or adding to net income (loss): interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, net income (loss) to noncontrolling interests, transaction costs, and other expenses. We calculate Adjusted Net Income by subtracting or adding to net income (loss): net income (loss) to noncontrolling interests, transaction costs, and other expenses. Our methodology for calculating Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income may differ from the methodologies used by other comparable companies, when calculating the same or similar supplemental financial measures and may not be comparable with these companies. Neither Adjusted EBITDA nor Adjusted Net Income represents cash generated from operating activities as determined by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to a) GAAP net income (loss) as an indication of our financial performance or b) GAAP cash flows from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity nor are such measures indicative of funds available to satisfy our cash needs. The Company urges investors to carefully review the U.S. GAAP financial information as shown in our periodic reports on Form 10-Q and Form 10-K, as amended and our Current Report on Form 8-K to reflect the acquisition of the Remington project management business.
