  • Same-Property RevPAR: Same-Property RevPAR increased 1.6% compared to the fourth quarter of 2017 to $158.70, driven by a 2.5% increase in ADR, offset by a 62 basis point decline in occupancy.
  • Same-Property Hotel EBITDA Margin: Same-Property Hotel EBITDA Margin was 27.6%, an increase of 47 basis points compared to the fourth quarter of 2017.
  • Total Portfolio RevPAR: Total Portfolio RevPAR was $158.30, a 4.0% increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2017 reflecting portfolio performance and the changes in portfolio composition.
  • Adjusted EBITDAre: Adjusted EBITDAre grew $7.6 million to $75.7 million, an increase of 11.2% compared to the fourth quarter of 2017.
  • Adjusted FFO per Diluted Share: Adjusted FFO per diluted share was $0.58, an increase of 11.5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2017.
  • Transaction Activity: As previously announced, the Company completed the acquisitions of Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Golf Club & Spa and the newly-branded Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead, as well as a free-standing restaurant in the same mixed-use development in Buckhead, for total consideration of $230.5 million.  Additionally, the Company completed the buyout of its joint venture partner's minority interest in two hotels for $12.2 million.  Also during the quarter, the Company completed the sale of two hotels for a combined sales price of $220 million.
  • Financing Activity: The Company funded $65 million on its $150 million unsecured term loan and paid off two mortgage loans totaling $43 million.
  • Dividends: The Company declared its fourth quarter dividend of $0.275 per share to common stockholders of record on December 31, 2018.

"The fourth quarter of 2018 was an exciting one for the Company as we not only experienced strong operating performance, but also continued our process of upgrading the portfolio through thoughtful acquisitions and dispositions," commented Marcel Verbaas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Xenia. "We were pleased with top-line performance as our Same-Property RevPAR increased by 1.6%, building on the 4.7% RevPAR growth our current Same-Property portfolio achieved in the fourth quarter of 2017, as well as our margin improvement of 47 basis points. The increase in top-line revenue in 2018 speaks to the strength of demand at various hotels throughout our portfolio during the quarter, especially when considering the increased post-hurricane demand that aided the performance of our hotels in Orlando and Houston in 2017.  While RevPAR in these two markets remained relatively flat after significant growth in the prior year, additional bright spots in our portfolio included markets such as Napa, Phoenix, Boston, and Santa Clara with RevPAR increases of 15.8%, 8.5%, 6.7%, and 4.3%, respectively, as well as our hotels in San Francisco and Dallas, which were able to grow RevPAR after achieving 12.1% and 13.9% increases in the fourth quarter of 2017."

Full Year 2018 Highlights

  • Net Income: Net income attributable to common stockholders for the year ended December 31, 2018 was $193.7 million, which includes a $123.5 million gain on sale of investment properties, and net income per diluted share was $1.75.
  • Same-Property RevPAR: Same-Property RevPAR was $165.27, an increase of 1.2% compared to the year ended December 31, 2017, as ADR increased 1.4% and occupancy declined 15 basis points.
  • Same-Property Hotel EBITDA Margin: Same-Property Hotel EBITDA Margin was 27.9%, an increase of 5 basis points compared to the year ended December 31, 2017.
  • Total Portfolio RevPAR: Total Portfolio RevPAR was $162.64, a 4.8% increase year over year, reflecting portfolio performance and the changes in portfolio composition.
  • Adjusted EBITDAre: Adjusted EBITDAre was $299.8 million, an increase of 10.9% from 2017.
  • Adjusted FFO per Diluted Share: The Company generated Adjusted FFO per diluted share of $2.22, a 7.8% increase from 2017.
  • Transaction Activity: The Company continued to make significant improvements in its portfolio composition during 2018, which included the acquisitions of four luxury hotels comprising 841 rooms for total consideration of $354 million. The acquisitions included The Ritz-Carlton, Denver, Fairmont Pittsburgh, Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Golf Club & Spa, and the newly branded Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead.  Additionally, the Company acquired a free-standing restaurant unit that is part of the same development as the Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead and completed the buyout of its joint venture partner's minority interest in Grand Bohemian Hotel Charleston and Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook.  The Company sold three upscale select-service hotels comprising 1,173 rooms for total consideration of $420 million.
  • Financing Activity: The Company amended, restated and upsized its revolving credit facility, completed $215 million of new debt financings, modified one mortgage loan, paid off $272 million of mortgage loans, and fixed LIBOR on $65 million of variable rate debt.
  • Capital Markets Activity:  The Company commenced an "At the Market" ("ATM") program authorizing the Company to issue common stock having an aggregate offering amount of up to $200 million.  During the year, the Company received gross proceeds of $137.4 million from the sale of common stock under its ATM program.

"Looking back on 2018, we are excited about the results of the Company's continued focus on portfolio optimization, both from an operational and transactional perspective," continued Mr. Verbaas. "In addition to completing almost $800 million in acquisitions and dispositions, our team completed a substantial number of large capital projects. Meanwhile, our financing and capital markets activities allowed the Company to address all near term debt maturities and further strengthen the balance sheet. Operationally, we remain thrilled about the impact our asset management initiatives continue to have on our bottom-line performance. Despite an estimated headwind of 90 basis points on our Same-Property RevPAR as a result of our significant renovation activity, our Same-Property portfolio achieved a 1.2% RevPAR increase for the full year, with our Total Portfolio RevPAR increasing by 4.8% as a result of the upgrades within our portfolio. Additionally, we continue to reap the benefits of our cost control efforts, as Same-Property hotel operating expenses increased by only 1.3%, allowing us to maintain Same-Property Hotel EBITDA margin at 27.9%, an impressive result in an environment where labor and other operating costs continue to increase.  We are pleased to have been able to deliver 7.8% Adjusted FFO per share growth during a year where we have continued to enhance the quality and future growth profile of the portfolio."

Business Interruption Insurance Proceeds

During the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, the Company received net business interruption insurance proceeds of $2.2 million and $5.0 million, respectively.  For the year, this includes $3.1 million related to Hyatt Centric Key West Resort & Spa and $0.2 million related to Marriott Woodlands Waterway Hotel & Convention Center for lost income as a result of 2017 Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, and $1.7 million related to the Company's two Napa hotels for lost income as a result of the Northern California wildfires that occurred in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Transactions

During 2018, the Company completed the following transactions:

  • In March, the Company sold its leasehold interest in the 645-room Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel for $200 million.
  • In August, the Company completed the acquisition of The Ritz-Carlton, Denver, a 202-room luxury hotel, for a purchase price of $100.3 million.
  • In September, the Company completed the acquisition of the 185-room Fairmont Pittsburgh for $30 million.
  • In October, the Company completed the acquisition of its joint venture partner's interests in both Grand Bohemian Hotel Charleston and Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook for a combined purchase price of $12.2 million.  As a result, both hotels are now wholly owned by the Company.
  • In November, the Company completed the acquisition of the 327-room Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Golf Club & Spa for $170 million.
  • Also in November, the Company completed the sale of the 300-room Hilton Garden Inn Washington D.C. Downtown for $128 million.
  • In December, the Company purchased the former Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta, a 127-room luxury hotel, which was rebranded as Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead immediately upon completion of the acquisition, for $53.5 million.  Simultaneously, the Company completed the $7 million acquisition of a free-standing restaurant unit that is part of the mixed-use development.
  • Also in December, the Company completed the sale of the 228-room Residence Inn Denver City Center for $92 million.

"We are proud of the portfolio improvements we have been able to make since our listing, and 2018 was another successful year on the transaction side of our business," said Mr. Verbaas. "Through almost $800 million of transactions, relatively balanced between acquisitions and dispositions, we believe we have not only improved our portfolio quality but also the growth prospects as it relates to both revenues and profitability. We added four outstanding luxury hotels at a substantial discount to replacement cost and we believe these assets provide us with intriguing opportunities to enhance value. Meanwhile, we sold three lower-tier hotels, including one on a relatively short term ground lease with significant near-term capital requirements, at attractive valuations.  These dispositions enabled us to further strengthen our balance sheet and increase our focus on luxury and upper upscale hotels which now represent 98% of our room count."

Financings and Balance Sheet

In October, the Company paid off the $18.6 million mortgage loan collateralized by Grand Bohemian Hotel Charleston and the $24.8 million mortgage loan collateralized by Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook.  Additionally in October, the Company funded $65 million of the $150 million unsecured term loan maturing in August 2023.

During 2018, the Company successfully amended, restated, and upsized its senior unsecured revolving credit facility resulting in a decrease in the leverage-based pricing grid and a three-year extension.  The Company originated two new loans during the year, including the $65 million mortgage loan collateralized by The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City and a $150 million unsecured term loan maturing in August 2023.  Additionally, the Company modified the mortgage loan collateralized by Andaz Napa resulting in $18 million of incremental proceeds, paid off seven mortgage loans totaling $272 million, and fixed LIBOR on $65 million of variable rate debt.

As of December 31, 2018, the Company had total outstanding debt of $1.2 billion with a weighted average interest rate of 3.82%.  Nearly 85% of the Company's debt has interest rates which are fixed or have been hedged to fixed.  In addition, the Company had $91.4 million of cash and cash equivalents, and full availability on its $500 million unsecured credit facility.  Total net debt to trailing twelve month Corporate EBITDA (as defined in Section 1.01 of the Company's unsecured credit facility) was 3.6x as of December 31, 2018.

Subsequent to quarter end, the Company funded the remaining $85 million of the unsecured term loan maturing August 2023, bringing the outstanding balance on the loan to the full $150 million capacity.

Capital Markets

During the quarter, the Company did not issue any shares of its common stock through its At-The-Market ("ATM") program. For the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company issued 5.7 million shares of its common stock through its ATM program at a weighted average share price of $24.02 for total gross proceeds of $137.4 million.  As of December 31, 2018, the Company had $62.6 million remaining available for sale under the ATM program.

The Company did not repurchase any shares under its existing share repurchase authorization during the year. As of December 31, 2018, the Company had approximately $96.9 million remaining under its share repurchase authorization.

Capital Expenditures

During the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2018, the Company invested $24 million and $108 million in its portfolio, respectively.  For the full year 2018, significant projects in the Company's current Same-Property portfolio included:

  • Andaz Savannah - Renovation of all guestrooms.

Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Golf Club & Spa Renovation Update

The Company has made significant progress on its comprehensive capital plan for Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Golf Club & Spa.  The transformational renovation will include the complete renovation of guestrooms and corridors including casegoods and softgoods, renovation of the meeting spaces and pre-function areas, and the renovation and reconcepting of food and beverage outlets.  In addition, substantial upgrades will be made to the spa and golf facilities, as well as exterior landscaping, outdoor meeting space, and pool features and amenities.  In total, the Company estimates it will spend approximately $50 million to $60 million on the renovation. The renovation is scheduled to commence in the fourth quarter 2019 and is expected to be completed in the first quarter 2021. The Company has included approximately $15 million for the project in the capital expenditure guidance provided below.

Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Renovation Update

The renovation of all guestrooms and guest corridors was completed on time and significantly below budget.  The renovation concluded in October 2018 and cost approximately $8 million.  Construction of the new 25,000 square foot ballroom and 32,000 square feet of pre-function and support space began in September 2018. This new facility, which is expected to cost approximately $32 million, is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter 2019.  As of December 31, 2018, below-grade infrastructure and ground floor slab had been completed and $6.5 million had been expended.

Hemingway's, the resort's signature steak and seafood restaurant, will undergo a complete renovation in the summer of 2019.   The existing meeting space will undergo a comprehensive $7 million renovation in 2020, following completion of the new ballroom.

2019 Outlook and Guidance

The Company's outlook for 2019 is based on the current economic environment, incorporates all expected renovation disruption, and assumes no additional acquisitions, dispositions, equity offerings, or share repurchases.  Same-Property RevPAR change includes all 40 hotels owned as of February 26, 2019.

Additional guidance assumptions:

  • Disruption due to renovations is expected to negatively impact Same-Property RevPAR Change by approximately 20 basis points.
  • In 2018, the three hotels that were sold during the year contributed approximately $19 million to Adjusted EBITDAre.
  • General and administrative expense of $21 million to $23 million, excluding non-cash share-based compensation. 
  • Interest expense of $50 million to $52 million, excluding non-cash loan related costs.
  • Income tax expense of approximately $6 million.
  • 114.4 million weighted average diluted shares and units outstanding.

"We expect moderate RevPAR growth to result in a slight decline in Adjusted EBITDAre in 2019 relative to 2018.  Our expectations for improved performance at recently-renovated hotels and newly-acquired properties are being offset by expense growth resulting from higher wage and benefit costs and greater real estate tax and insurance expenses.  We continue to be excited about the long-term growth opportunities embedded in our portfolio, stemming from recent acquisitions and capital expenditure projects.  Due to the recent moves we have made, as well as our strong balance sheet, we believe the company is well-positioned for earnings growth and continued portfolio enhancement in the years ahead," commented Atish Shah, Chief Financial Officer of Xenia.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company considers the following non-GAAP financial measures to be useful to investors as key supplemental measures of operating performance: EBITDA, EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDAre, Same-Property Hotel EBITDA, Same-Property Hotel EBITDA Margin, FFO, Adjusted FFO, and Adjusted FFO per diluted share.  These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered along with, but not as alternatives to, net income or loss, operating profit, cash from operations, or any other operating performance measure as prescribed per GAAP.

EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre

EBITDA is a commonly used measure of performance in many industries and is defined as net income or loss (calculated in accordance with GAAP) excluding interest expense, provision for income taxes (including income taxes applicable to sale of assets) and depreciation and amortization.  The Company considers EBITDA useful to an investor regarding results of operations, in evaluating and facilitating comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs by removing the impact of capital structure (primarily interest expense) and asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from operating results, even though EBITDA does not represent an amount that accrues directly to common stockholders.  In addition, EBITDA is used as one measure in determining the value of hotel acquisitions and dispositions and along with FFO and Adjusted FFO, it is used by management in the annual budget process for compensation programs.

We then calculate EBITDAre in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("Nareit"), which we adopted on January 1, 2018.  Nareit defines EBITDAre as EBITDA plus or minus losses and gains on the disposition of depreciated property, including gains/losses on change of control, plus impairment write-downs of depreciated property and of investments in unconsolidated affiliates caused by a decrease in value of the depreciated property in the affiliate, and adjustments to reflect the entity's share of EBITDAre of unconsolidated affiliates.

We further adjust EBITDAre to exclude the impact of non-controlling interests in consolidated entities other than our Operating Partnership units because our Operating Partnership units may be redeemed for common stock.  We believe it is meaningful for the investor to understand Adjusted EBITDAre attributable to all common stock and Operating Partnership unit holders. We also adjust EBITDAre for certain additional items such as hotel acquisition and terminated transaction costs, amortization of share-based compensation, the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles, and other costs we believe do not represent recurring operations and are not indicative of the performance of our underlying hotel property entities. We believe Adjusted EBITDAre attributable to common stock and unit holders provides investors with another financial measure in evaluating and facilitating comparison of operating performance between periods and between REITs that report similar measures.

Prior to the adoption of EBITDAre on January 1, 2018, we historically presented EBITDA attributable to common stock and unit holders, which excluded depreciation expense related to corporate level assets and the allocation of EBITDA to noncontrolling interests in our consolidated investments in real estate entities.  In order to calculate EBITDAre in accordance with Nareit's definition, these adjustments are now made to derive Adjusted EBITDAre.  Therefore, there were no retrospective changes to Adjusted EBITDA as historically presented upon conversion to Adjusted EBITDAre.

Same-Property Hotel EBITDA and Same-Property Hotel EBITDA Margin

Same-Property hotel data includes the actual operating results for all hotels owned as of the end of the reporting period.  We then adjust the Same-Property hotel data for comparability purposes by including pre-acquisition operating results of asset(s) acquired during the period, which provides the investor a basis for understanding the acquisition(s) historical operating trends and seasonality. The pre-acquisition operating results for the comparable period are obtained from the seller and/or manager of the hotels during the acquisition due diligence process and have not been audited or reviewed by our independent auditors.  We further adjust the Same-Property hotel data to remove dispositions during the respective reporting periods, and, in certain cases, hotels that are not fully open due to renovation, re-positioning, or disruption or whose room counts have materially changed during either the current or prior year as these historical operating results are not indicative of or expected to be comparable to the operating performance of our hotel portfolio on a prospective basis.

Same-Property Hotel EBITDA represents net income excluding: (1) interest expense, (2) income taxes, (3) depreciation and amortization, (4) corporate-level costs and expenses, (5) hotel acquisition and terminated transaction costs, and (6) certain state and local excise taxes resulting from our ownership structure. We believe that Same-Property Hotel EBITDA provides our investors a useful financial measure to evaluate our hotel operating performance, excluding the impact of our capital structure (primarily interest), our asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization), income taxes, and our corporate-level expenses (corporate expenses and hotel acquisition and terminated transaction costs). We believe property-level results provide investors with supplemental information on the ongoing operational performance of our hotels and the effectiveness of our third-party management companies that operate our business on a property-level basis. Same-Property Hotel EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Same-Property Hotel EBITDA by Same-Property Total Revenues.

As a result of these adjustments the Same-Property hotel data we present does not represent our total revenues, expenses, operating profit or net income and should not be used to evaluate our performance as a whole. Management compensates for these limitations by separately considering the impact of these excluded items to the extent they are material to operating decisions or assessments of our operating performance. Our consolidated statements of operations include such amounts, all of which should be considered by investors when evaluating our performance.

We include Same-Property hotel data as supplemental information for investors.  Management believes that providing Same-Property hotel data is useful to investors because it represents comparable operations for our portfolio as it exists at the end of the respective reporting periods presented, which allows investors and management to evaluate the period-to-period performance of our hotels and facilitates comparisons with other hotel REITs and hotel owners. In particular, these measures assist management and investors in distinguishing whether increases or decreases in revenues and/or expenses are due to growth or decline of operations at Same-Property hotels or from other factors, such as the effect of acquisitions or dispositions.

FFO and Adjusted FFO

The Company calculates FFO in accordance with standards established by Nareit, as amended in the 2018 restatement whitepaper, which defines FFO as net income or loss (calculated in accordance with GAAP), excluding real estate-related depreciation, amortization and impairments, gains (losses) from sales of real estate, the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles, similar adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures, and items classified by GAAP as extraordinary. 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 industry investors consider presentations of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by themselves. The Company believes that the presentation of FFO provides useful supplemental information to investors regarding operating performance by excluding the effect of real estate depreciation and amortization, gains (losses) from sales for real estate, impairments of real estate assets, extraordinary items and the portion of these items related to unconsolidated entities, all of which are based on historical cost accounting and which may be of lesser significance in evaluating current performance.  The Company believes that the presentation of FFO can facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs, even though FFO does not represent an amount that accrues directly to common stockholders.  The calculation of FFO may not be comparable to measures calculated by other companies who do not use the Nareit definition of FFO or do not calculate FFO per diluted share in accordance with Nareit guidance.  Additionally, FFO may not be helpful when comparing Xenia to non-REITs.  The Company presents FFO attributable to common stock and unit holders, which includes its Operating Partnership units because its Operating Partnership units may be redeemed for common stock.  The Company believes it is meaningful for the investor to understand FFO attributable to all common stock and Operating Partnership units.

The Company further adjusts FFO for certain additional items that are not in Nareit's definition of FFO such as hotel acquisition and terminated transaction costs, amortization of debt origination costs and share-based compensation, and other expenses it believes do not represent recurring operations.  The Company believes that Adjusted FFO provides investors with useful supplemental information that may facilitate comparisons of ongoing operating performance between periods and between REITs that make similar adjustments to FFO and is beneficial to investors' complete understanding of operating performance.

Adjusted FFO per diluted share

The Company calculates Adjusted FFO per diluted share by dividing the Adjusted FFO for the respective period by the diluted weighted average number of shares of common stock for the corresponding period.  The Company's diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding is calculated by taking the weighted average of the common stock outstanding for the respective period plus the effect of any dilutive securities.  Any anti-dilutive securities are excluded from the diluted earnings per-share calculation.
