See “Statistical Data for the Hotels - Pro Forma” later in this press release.
 

“Throughout 2016, our portfolio performed well in a slow growth operating environment, with softening industry demand and increasing hotel supply. We are proud that our teams continue to operate with excellent efficiency across the portfolio, as evidenced by limited annual expense growth and our highest-ever reported annual EBITDA margin,” said Michael D. Barnello, President and Chief Executive Officer of LaSalle Hotel Properties.

“Following our opportunistic preferred share issuance with a record low coupon, the disposition of three assets since July, and our newly refinanced credit facility, the Company now has an even stronger balance sheet, with a low debt-to-EBITDA ratio, an excellent quality portfolio primarily in core locations, and a well-covered dividend providing a high yield,” added Mr. Barnello.

Disposition and Investment Activity

  • Asset Sales: In July, the Company completed two non-core asset sales for $245.0 million. Proceeds from both transactions were used to reduce borrowings on the Company’s senior unsecured credit facility and for general corporate purposes.

    • On July 8, 2016, the Company sold its junior mezzanine loan (the “Mezzanine Loan”) secured by equity interests in two hotels: Shutters on the Beach and Casa Del Mar, in Santa Monica, California. The Mezzanine Loan sold for $80.0 million, which was the principal amount.
    • On July 14, 2016, the Company sold the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown for $165.0 million, generating a 13.7 percent unleveraged Internal Rate of Return (“IRR”). The Company acquired the hotel in February 2004 for $106.0 million.
  • Capital Investments: The Company invested $102.1 million of capital in its hotels throughout the year, completing renovations at the Chaminade Resort and Conference Center in Santa Cruz, Gild Hall in New York City, Hotel Solamar in San Diego, Hotel Amarano Burbank, The Liberty Hotel in Boston, Lansdowne Resort in Lansdowne, VA, Hotel Palomar, Washington, DC, the Mason & Rook Hotel in Washington, DC, and the second phase of the rooms renovation at Westin Michigan Avenue in Chicago.

    During the quarter, the Company invested $27.2 million of capital in its hotels. The Company commenced room renovations at L’Auberge Del Mar and Embassy Suites Philadelphia – Center City. Both renovations are now complete.

    During 2017, the Company anticipates investing between $130.0 million and $170.0 million of capital in its hotels.

Balance Sheet and Capital Markets Activities

  • Current Balance Sheet Summary: As of December 31, 2016, the Company had total outstanding debt of $1.1 billion. Total net debt to trailing 12 month Corporate EBITDA (as defined in the financial covenant section of the Company’s senior unsecured credit facility) was 2.8 times, as of December 31, 2016 and its fixed charge coverage ratio was 6.0 times. For the fourth quarter, the Company’s weighted average interest rate was 2.7 percent, compared to 3.1 percent during the same prior year period. As of December 31, 2016, the Company had $134.7 million of cash and cash equivalents on its balance sheet and capacity of $772.5 million available on its credit facilities.
  • Mortgage Repayment: During the first quarter of 2016, the Company repaid $286.2 million of mortgage debt on three of its hotels. On January 4, 2016, the Company prepaid the mortgages on Westin Michigan Avenue in Chicago and Indianapolis Marriott Downtown, which had remaining balances of $131.3 million and $96.1 million, respectively. On February 11, 2016, the Company prepaid the mortgage on The Roger in New York City, which had a remaining balance of $58.8 million.
  • Preferred Share Issuance: On May 25, 2016, the Company issued 6,000,000 6.3 percent Series J Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares for gross proceeds of $150.0 million. The 6.3 percent coupon is the lowest-ever for a lodging REIT.

Dividend

On December 15, 2016, the Company declared a fourth quarter 2016 dividend of $0.45 per common share of beneficial interest. The dividend represents an annual run rate of $1.80 per share and a 6.0 percent yield based on the closing share price on February 21, 2017.

Subsequent Events

  • Credit Facility Refinancing: On January 10, 2017, the Company refinanced $1.05 billion of debt, reducing the interest cost on its $750.0 million revolver and $300.0 million five-year term loan and extending their maturities to January 2022 (including the exercise of extension options pursuant to certain conditions). The revolver and term loan include accordion features which, subject to certain conditions, entitle the Company to request additional lender commitments, allowing for total commitments of up to $1.25 billion for the revolver and $500.0 million for the term loan.

    The interest rate for the new revolver is based on a pricing grid with a range of 150 to 225 basis points over LIBOR, based on the Company’s leverage ratio and is currently LIBOR plus 150 basis points, or 2.28 percent. Pricing for the term loan is LIBOR plus 145 to 220 basis points, based on the Company’s leverage ratio. The term loan remains swapped, fixing LIBOR until August 2017, resulting in a current interest rate of 2.23 percent.
  • Hotel Deca Sale: Also in January 2017, the Company sold Hotel Deca in Seattle, Washington for $55.0 million. The Company acquired the hotel in December 2005 for $26.4 million. This investment generated an unleveraged IRR of 12.3 percent and an average cash-on-cash yield of 8.8 percent over 11 years. Proceeds from the asset sale were used for general corporate purposes.
  • Share Repurchase Authorization: The Company’s Board of Trustees has authorized an expanded share repurchase program to acquire up to $500.0 million of the Company’s common shares. Including the previous authorization, the Company now has $569.8 million of capacity remaining in its share repurchase program. The Board of Trustees authorized the expanded program to increase the Company’s flexibility to execute opportunistic repurchases when it believes share buybacks are an accretive use of funds that will enhance shareholder value. The program does not obligate the Company to acquire any specific number of shares and, as a result, there is no guarantee as to the number of shares that will be repurchased (if any) or the timing of such repurchases. The Company did not acquire any common shares during the fourth quarter of 2016 or to date during the first quarter of 2017.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

FFO, EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA

The Company considers the non-GAAP measures of FFO (including FFO per share/unit), EBITDA and hotel EBITDA to be key supplemental measures of the Company’s performance and should be considered along with, but not as alternatives to, net income or loss as a measure of the Company’s operating performance. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, most real estate industry investors consider FFO, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA to be helpful in evaluating a real estate company’s operations.

The White Paper on FFO approved by NAREIT in April 2002, as revised in 2011, defines FFO as net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains or losses from sales of properties and items classified by GAAP as extraordinary, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization and impairment writedowns, and after comparable adjustments for the Company’s portion of these items related to unconsolidated entities and joint ventures. The Company computes FFO consistent with standards established by NAREIT, which may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the term in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the current NAREIT definition differently than the Company.

With respect to FFO, the Company believes that excluding the effect of extraordinary items, real estate-related depreciation and amortization and impairments, and the portion of these items related to unconsolidated entities, all of which are based on historical cost accounting and which may be of limited significance in evaluating current performance, can facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs, even though FFO does not represent an amount that accrues directly to common shareholders. However, FFO may not be helpful when comparing the Company to non-REITs.

With respect to EBITDA, the Company believes that excluding the effect of non-operating expenses and non-cash charges, and the portion of these items related to unconsolidated entities, all of which are also based on historical cost accounting and may be of limited significance in evaluating current performance, can help eliminate the accounting effects of depreciation and amortization, and financing decisions and facilitate comparisons of core operating profitability between periods and between REITs, even though EBITDA also does not represent an amount that accrues directly to common shareholders.

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

FFO, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA do not represent cash generated from operating activities as determined by GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income or loss, cash flows from operations or any other operating performance measure prescribed by GAAP. FFO, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA are not measures of the Company’s liquidity, nor are FFO, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA indicative of funds available to fund the Company’s cash needs, including its ability to make cash distributions. These measurements do not reflect cash expenditures for long-term assets and other items that have been and will be incurred. FFO, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA may include funds that may not be available for management’s discretionary use due to functional requirements to conserve funds for capital expenditures, property acquisitions, and other commitments and uncertainties. To compensate for this, management considers the impact of these excluded items to the extent they are material to operating decisions or the evaluation of the Company’s operating performance.

Adjusted FFO and Adjusted EBITDA

The Company presents adjusted FFO (including adjusted FFO per share/unit) and adjusted EBITDA, which adjusts for certain additional items including gains on sale of property and impairment losses (to the extent included in EBITDA), acquisition transaction costs, costs associated with the departure of executive officers, costs associated with the recognition of issuance costs related to the calling of preferred shares and certain other items. The Company excludes these items as it believes it allows for meaningful comparisons with other REITs and between periods and is more indicative of the ongoing performance of its assets. As with FFO, EBITDA, and hotel EBITDA, the Company’s calculation of adjusted FFO and adjusted EBITDA may be different from similar adjusted measures calculated by other REITs.

Adjustments for Park Central Hotel New York and WestHouse Hotel New York Disruption

In addition, the Company has presented hotel EBITDA and RevPAR, excluding the negative impact of the union disruption at the Park Central Hotel New York and WestHouse Hotel New York in the third and fourth quarters of 2015. The union disruption was a non-recurring item that the Company does not believe is reasonably likely to recur within two years. The Company estimates the negative impact of the disruption, including lost hotel EBITDA, based on the actual results for the hotels for the third and fourth quarters of 2015 versus their forecast for that period as of August 1, 2015.
