    CorePoint Lodging Reports First Quarter 2021 Results

    IRVING, Texas, May 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CorePoint Lodging Inc. (NYSE: CPLG) (“CorePoint” or the “Company”), a pure play select-service hotel owner strategically focused on the midscale and upper-midscale segments, today reported operational and financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021. First Quarter 2021 and Subsequent Highlights Net loss of $(31) million, or $(0.54) loss per basic and diluted shareComparable RevPAR of $38.78, a decrease of 24.0% from the same period in 2020 with 352 basis points of RevPAR Index market share gainAdjusted EBITDAre of $3 millionAdjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders of $(4) million, or $(0.07) per basic and diluted shareAll of the Company’s hotels are currently open and operationalRevolving Credit Facility maturity extended to May 2022Sold 9 non-core hotels for a combined gross sales price of approximately $42 million during the quarterRepaid $41 million in total debt during the quarterSubsequent to quarter end, sold 6 non-core hotels for a gross sales price of approximately $37 million, resulting in a total of 120 non-core hotels sold since March 2019 for a combined gross sales price of approximately $530 millionAn additional 48 hotels are under contract with qualified buyers, expected to generate approximately $278 million of gross proceeds, and are generally expected to close by the end of the fourth quarter of 2021, subject to market and other conditions “As expected, the performance of our portfolio of select-service hotels strengthened from the seasonally low demand periods of November through February to achieve comparable occupancy of 62% for March. This sequentially improving trend, which allowed us to drive comparable rate and RevPAR sequentially through the quarter, resulted in $8 million of hotel level Adjusted EBITDAre,” noted Keith Cline, President and Chief Executive Officer of CorePoint. “The continuation of this positive trend into April, combined with the positioning of our hotels predominantly in suburban, drive-to destination, and interstate-adjacent markets, leaves us poised to capture pent up leisure demand as we move into our peak season that historically occur within the second and third quarters.” Mr. Cline added, “After an active year of non-core dispositions in 2020, we have maintained a robust pace in 2021 with this proven value creation strategy. Year to date, we have closed on the sale of 15 hotels for gross proceeds of $79 million at attractive valuations and have paid down $73 million of total debt, with an additional 48 hotels under contract expected to generate $278 million of gross proceeds. Since inception of our real estate disposition strategy, we have either sold or put under contract to sell 168 of the 210 non-core hotels.” Selected Statistical and Financial Data (Unaudited, $ in millions, except RevPAR and ADR) Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 2020 % ChangeNet loss $(31) $(21) (47.6%)Total revenues$97 $146 (33.6%) Adjusted EBITDAre$3 $10 (70.0%)Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders $(4) $4 (200.0%) Comparable Occupancy (1)52.7% 54.2% (150)bpsComparable ADR (1)$73.56 $94.05 (21.8%)Comparable RevPAR (1)$38.78 $51.01 (24.0%)Comparable Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre margin (1) 9.5% 13.4% (390)bps ____________________(1) Comparable Hotels consists of all of the 200 hotels owned as of March 31, 2021. First Quarter 2021 Financial and Operating Results The Company reported net loss of $(31) million, or $(0.54) loss per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to net loss of $(21) million, or $(0.37) loss per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. Decreases in year-over-year revenues were partially offset by lower operating expenses. Comparable RevPAR for the first quarter of 2021 decreased 24.0% over the same period of 2020 with 352 basis points of RevPAR Index market share gains. The decline in comparable RevPAR was driven by a 21.8% decrease in comparable ADR and 150 bps decrease in comparable occupancy. These decreases were primarily driven by a reduction in hotel demand and rate resulting from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Top performing markets included Sacramento and San Diego, California, Denver, Colorado, Atlanta, Georgia and Tampa-St. Petersburg, Florida. Adjusted EBITDAre for the first quarter of 2021 was $3 million as compared to $10 million for the same period in 2020. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to decreases in rooms revenue, including the impact of sold hotels and a reduction in room demand and rate due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Operations Update and Measures to Mitigate Impact of COVID-19 For the three months ended March 31, 2021 all of our hotels were fully open and accepting transient guests. We have fully resumed operations for all of our hotels since August 2020. Comparable occupancy during the first quarter of 2021 reflected the seasonal impact for the lower occupancy periods in the first half of the quarter. The Company’s hotels’ room demand continued to benefit from leisure travel, certain segments of corporate travel related to essential businesses and being located in drive-to destinations. The following table summarizes select operating statistics for the months of January, February, and March 2021: Comparable Occupancy Comparable ADR Comparable RevPARJanuary 202145.3% $68.58 $31.05 February 202151.1% $72.18 $36.89 March 202161.6% $78.26 $48.21 The Company continues to implement the following measures to control costs and preserve capital to mitigate the ongoing operational and financial impact from the COVID-19 pandemic: Reducing staffing levels, eliminating non-essential amenity offerings, minimizing spending at all hotels, and closing sections and/or floors at some hotels to maximize efficiencies.Deferring all non-essential capital investments and expenditures, with the exception of life safety and critical operational needs.Implementing cost containment measures with respect to corporate spending. Dispositions Since CorePoint announced its initial non-core disposition program of 78 hotels in March 2019, 71 of these hotels have been successfully sold for a combined gross sales price of approximately $283 million and one additional phase one hotel is under contract with a qualified buyer, expected to generate approximately $4 million in gross proceeds. The Company’s expanded non-core disposition program announced in March 2020 includes an additional phase two group of 132 hotels. Of the phase two hotels, 49 have been successfully sold for a combined gross sales price of approximately $247 million and an additional 47 phase two hotels are under contract with qualified buyers, expected to generate approximately $274 million in gross proceeds. There can be no assurance as to the timing of any future sales or whether such sales will be completed at all. The company is unable to forecast at this time the impact from the COVID-19 pandemic on the timing of or gross proceeds from asset sales.

As previously disclosed, CorePoint is currently deferring all non-essential capital investments and expenditures, with the exception of life safety or critical operational needs, resulting in an expected annual capital spend estimate of $15 million to $20 million, excluding any hurricane restoration costs which are predominantly covered by insurance proceeds. Balance Sheet and Liquidity As of March 31, 2021, the Company had total cash and cash equivalents of $139 million, excluding lender and other escrows of approximately $37 million. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had total debt principal outstanding of $769 million, which consisted of the following: (Unaudited, $ in millions) Debt Interest Rate Maturity Date Principal Balance OutstandingCMBS Loan (1)(2) L + 2.84% June 2025 $689 Revolving Credit Facility L + 6.00% May 2022 80 Total $769 ____________________ (1) Maturity date assumes the exercise of all borrower extension options. The next maturity date is June 2021, with borrower options to extend the maturity date for four successive terms of one year each. In March 2021, the Company provided notice to extend the CMBS Facility for one year upon maturity. Amount shown represents gross principal balance outstanding. (2) As noted in the Hotel Disposition Summary table above, the Company used approximately $32 million of net proceeds from its asset sales to reduce the CMBS principal balance outstanding to $657 million as of today. In March 2021, the Company amended its Revolving Credit Facility to extend the maturity date to May 30, 2022. The loan amendment does not contain a total net leverage or interest coverage financial covenant through the extended maturity date. As part of the amendment process, the Company repaid $5 million upon execution of the loan amendment and agreed to repay $5 million per month starting in June 2021 through August 2021 and comply with a minimum liquidity covenant of $85 million (subject to certain dollar-for-dollar reductions in respect of 100% of such monthly payments utilized to repay the Revolving Credit Facility). In addition, should unrestricted cash exceed $100 million at the end of any month starting in September 2021, the Company agreed to repay an incremental $5 million per month (capped at a maximum of $10 million in total incremental repayments). Any such incremental repayments would reduce the minimum liquidity covenant (dollar-for-dollar reductions with respect of 50% of any amounts utilized to repay the Revolving Credit Facility). Additionally, the amendment also includes a 100-basis point per annum increase in interest rate spread, with continued restrictions on the Company’s ability to make common stock dividend payments (except to the extent required to maintain REIT status), make investments and to incur additional indebtedness above certain levels, subject to certain exceptions. Dividends As previously disclosed, the Company has currently suspended its common stock dividend, resulting in the preservation of approximately $11 million of cash per quarter, or approximately $45 million on an annualized basis. All future dividends will be at the sole discretion of CorePoint’s Board of Directors and will depend upon, among other things compliance with debt covenants and maintenance of our REIT qualification. Wyndham Settlement UpdateAs part of the previously disclosed settlement agreement (the “Wyndham Settlement”), Wyndham agreed to provide enhanced revenue tools, systems and processes. The implementation was required under the Wyndham Settlement to be completed by no later than the end of 2020. We are currently engaged in ongoing discussions with Wyndham regarding the rollout and final acceptance of the revenue tool replacement. CorePoint has received substantially all of the $37 million in cash settlement payments from Wyndham, in accordance with the terms of the settlement agreement. For more information regarding the settlement, see the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 23, 2019.

We believe this financial information provides meaningful supplemental information because it represents how management views the business and reviews our operating performance. It is also used by management when publicly providing the business outlook. See the definitions of “EBITDA,” “EBITDAre,” “Adjusted EBITDAre,” “Comparable Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre,” “FFO” and “Adjusted FFO,” for a further explanation of the use of these measures. “EBITDA.” Earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) is a commonly used measure in many REIT and non-REIT related industries. We believe EBITDA is useful in evaluating our operating performance because it provides an indication of our ability to incur and service debt, to satisfy general operating expenses, and to make capital expenditures. We calculate EBITDA excluding discontinued operations. EBITDA is intended to be a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is independent of a company’s capital structure. “EBITDAre.” We present EBITDAre in accordance with guidelines established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“Nareit”). Nareit defines EBITDAre as EBITDA adjusted for gains or losses on the disposition of properties, impairments, and adjustments to reflect the entity’s share of EBITDAre of unconsolidated affiliates. We believe EBITDAre is a useful performance measure to help investors evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period. “Adjusted EBITDAre.” Adjusted EBITDAre is calculated as EBITDAre adjusted for certain items, such as restructuring and separation transaction expenses, acquisition transaction expenses, stock-based compensation expense, severance expense, and other items not indicative of ongoing operating performance. The Company believes that EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre provide useful information to investors about it and its financial condition and results of operations for the following reasons: (i) EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre are among the measures used by the Company’s management to evaluate its operating performance and make day-to-day operating decisions; and (ii) EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, lenders and other interested parties as a common performance measure to compare results or estimate valuations across companies in and apart from the Company’s industry sector. EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre are not recognized terms under GAAP, have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered either in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss), cash flow or other methods of analyzing the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are that these measures: do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company’s working capital needs;do not reflect the Company’s interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on its indebtedness;do not reflect the Company’s tax expense or the cash requirements to pay its taxes;do not reflect historical cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre do not include gains or losses on the disposition of properties which may be material to our operating performance and cash flow;do not reflect the impact on earnings or changes resulting from matters that the Company considers not to be indicative of our future operations, including but not limited to discontinued operations, impairment, acquisition and disposition activities and restructuring expenses;although depreciation, amortization and impairment are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated, amortized or impaired will often have to be replaced, upgraded or repositioned in the future, and EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; andother companies in the Company’s industry may calculate EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre should not be considered as a replacement to net income (loss) presented in accordance with GAAP, discretionary cash available to the Company to reinvest in the growth of its business or as measures of cash that will be available to the Company to meet its obligations. “Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre” measures property-level results at the Company’s hotels before corporate-level expenses and is a key measure of a hotel’s profitability. The Company presents Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre to help the Company and its investors evaluate the ongoing operating performance of the Company’s properties. “Comparable Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre” measures property-level results at the Company’s Comparable hotels before corporate-level expenses and is a key measure of a hotel’s profitability. The Company presents Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre to help the Company and its investors evaluate the ongoing operating performance of the Company’s properties. “Comparable Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre margin” represents the ratio of Comparable Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre to total revenues. Funds from operations (“FFO”) and “Adjusted FFO”. We present Nareit FFO attributable to common stockholders and Nareit FFO per diluted share (as defined below) as non-GAAP measures of our performance. We calculate funds from operations (“FFO”) attributable to common stockholders for a given operating period in accordance with standards established by Nareit, as net income or loss (calculated in accordance with GAAP), excluding depreciation and amortization related to real estate, gains or losses on sales of certain real estate assets, impairment write-downs of real estate assets, discontinued operations, income taxes related to sales of certain real estate assets, and the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles, plus adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures are calculated to reflect our pro rata share of the FFO of those entities on the same basis. Since real estate values historically have risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors have considered presentation of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by themselves. For these reasons, Nareit adopted the FFO metric in order to promote an industry wide measure of REIT operating performance. We believe Nareit FFO provides useful information to investors regarding our operating performance and can facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs. Our presentation may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the terms in accordance with the current Nareit definition, or that interpret the current Nareit definition differently than we do. We calculate Nareit FFO per diluted share as our Nareit FFO divided by the number of fully diluted shares outstanding during a given operating period. We also present Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders when evaluating our performance because we believe that the exclusion of certain additional items described below provides useful supplemental information to investors regarding our ongoing operating performance. Management historically has made the adjustments detailed below in evaluating our performance and in our annual budget process. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted FFO provides useful supplemental information that is beneficial to an investor’s complete understanding of our operating performance. We adjust Nareit FFO attributable to common stockholders for the following items, and refer to this measure as Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders: transaction expense associated with the potential disposition of or acquisition of real estate or businesses; severance expense; share-based compensation expense; litigation gains and losses outside the ordinary course of business; amortization of deferred financing costs; reorganization costs and separation transaction expenses; loss on early extinguishment of debt; straight-line ground lease expense; casualty losses; deferred tax expense; and other items that we believe are not representative of our current or future operating performance. Nareit FFO attributable to common stockholders and Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered either in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss), cash flow or other methods of analyzing our results as reported under GAAP. Nareit FFO is not an indication of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to fund dividends. Nareit FFO is also not a useful measure in evaluating net asset value because impairments are taken into account in determining net asset value but not in determining Nareit FFO. Investors are cautioned that we may not recover any impairment charges in the future. Accordingly, Nareit FFO should be reviewed in connection with GAAP measurements. We believe our presentation of Nareit FFO is in accordance with the Nareit definition; however, our Nareit FFO may not be comparable to amounts calculated by other REITs.

There are no dilutive securities for purposes of calculating net loss or negative FFO. CERTAIN DEFINED TERMS Average daily rate (“ADR”) represents hotel room revenues divided by total number of rooms rented in a given period. ADR measures the average room price attained by a hotel or group of hotels, and ADR trends provide useful information concerning pricing policies and the nature of the guest base of a hotel or group of hotels. Changes in room rates have an impact on overall revenues and profitability. “Occupancy” represents the total number of rooms rented in a given period divided by the total number of rooms available at a hotel or group of hotels. Occupancy measures the utilization of our hotels’ available capacity, which may be affected from time to time by our repositioning, property casualties and other activities. Management uses occupancy to gauge demand at a specific hotel or group of hotels in a given period. Occupancy levels also help us determine achievable ADR levels as demand for hotel rooms increases or decreases. Revenue per available room (“RevPAR”) is defined as the product of the ADR charged and the average daily occupancy achieved. RevPAR does not include bad debt expense or other ancillary, non-room revenues, such as food and beverage revenues or parking, telephone or other guest service revenues generated by a hotel, which are not significant for us. RevPAR changes that are driven predominately by occupancy have different implications for overall revenue levels and incremental hotel operating profit than changes driven predominately by ADR. For example, increases in occupancy at a hotel would lead to increases in room and other revenues, as well as incremental operating costs (including, but not limited to, housekeeping services, utilities and room amenity costs). RevPAR increases due to higher ADR, however, would generally not result in additional operating costs, with the exception of those charged or incurred as a percentage of revenue, such as management and royalty fees, credit card fees and booking commissions. As a result, changes in RevPAR driven by increases or decreases in ADR generally have a greater effect on operating profitability at our hotels than changes in RevPAR driven by occupancy levels. “RevPAR Index” measures a hotel’s fair market share of its competitive set’s revenue per available room. “Comparable Hotels” are defined as hotels that were active and operating in our system for at least one full calendar year as of the end of the applicable reporting period and were active and operating as of January 1st of the previous year. Comparable Hotels exclude: (i) hotels that sustained substantial property damage or other business interruption; (ii) hotels that are sold or classified as held for sale; or (iii) hotels in which comparable results are otherwise not available. Management uses Comparable Hotels as the basis upon which to evaluate ADR, occupancy, and RevPAR. Management calculates comparable ADR, Occupancy, and RevPAR using the same set of Comparable Hotels as defined above. Further, we report variances in comparable ADR, occupancy, and RevPAR between periods for the set of Comparable Hotels existing at the reporting date versus the results of the same set of hotels in the prior period.
