Our Playa Safe Stay program and our global brand affiliations have enabled us to hit the ground running with confidence to capitalize on the market share opportunity at hand as leisure travelers resume vacationing.The reopening process is underway in all three of the countries where our resorts are located, as we have opened roughly two-thirds of our managed resorts with the remaining resorts expected to come online in the near future. While it is still very early, I am encouraged by the building momentum as the days pass and word of mouth spreads about our guests safely enjoying themselves in a way that was thought to be a relic of the past just a few short months ago. I have no doubt that we will emerge stronger in each of our markets and look forward to the upcoming travel high season.Above all, I am immensely overjoyed to welcome back thousands of our associates to the resorts to be a part of this unique moment in time. Together, we look forward to delivering our award-winning Service from the Heart to every customer that comes to vacation at our resorts!”– Bruce D. Wardinski, Chairman and CEO of Playa Hotels & ResortsCOVID UpdateThe COVID-19 pandemic and the public health measures that have been undertaken in response have had a significant adverse impact on the global economy, the travel and hospitality industries and our business starting in the first quarter of 2020. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, including related government restrictions, border closings, quarantines, “shelter-in-place” orders and “social distancing,” have significantly disrupted global leisure travel, and has adversely impacted global commercial activity, contributing to worldwide economic contraction and rising unemployment. We expect that the continuing economic fallout will create headwinds for leisure travel even after the current government restrictions are lifted.Due to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated restrictions placed on international travel, we temporarily suspended operations at all of our resorts in late March 2020 and subsequently began reopening our resorts on July 1, 2020.As of July 1, 2020, we reopened 8 out of our 21 resorts and subsequently reopened another 4 resorts. Currently, 12 out of our 21 resorts have reopened:   ResortDate Reopened Hyatt Ziva Cancún7/1/2020 Hyatt Zilara Cancún7/1/2020 Hilton Playa del Carmen All-Inclusive Resort7/1/2020 Panama Jack Resorts Cancún7/15/2020 Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall7/1/2020 Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall7/1/2020 Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa7/1/2020 Jewel Paradise Cove Beach Resort & Spa7/1/2020 Jewel Grande Montego Bay Resort & Spa7/1/2020 Sanctuary Cap Cana7/15/2020 Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana7/22/2020 Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana7/22/2020    The suspension of operations at all of our resorts during the quarter, which account for all of our revenue, has had a significant adverse effect on our liquidity. As of June 30, 2020 we had $251.0 million of available cash. We have taken the following measures to mitigate the impact of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our liquidity position: * we announced on June 12, 2020 that we had raised $224.0 million of additional capital from affiliates of Davidson Kempner Capital Management LP (“DK”) in the form of $204.0 million of additional debt financing and $20.0 million of equity financing at a price of $4.10 per share; * we sold the Jewel Dunn's River Beach Resort & Spa and the Jewel Runaway Bay Beach Resort & Waterpark for a total cash consideration of $60.0 million. The transaction closed in May 2020 and the cash consideration is reflected in our available cash; * we borrowed an additional $40.0 million under our Revolving Credit Facility in March 2020, increasing the amount outstanding on the facility to $85.0 million; * the temporary suspension of operations of all of our resorts significantly reduced the variable cost components of our resort-level operating expenses, including resort franchise and franchise-related fees, management fees and expenses related to our resort employees; * we have deferred all of our non-critical capital expenditures planned for 2020 and intend to spend a minimal amount on emergency capital expenditures; * we adopted voluntary senior executive salary reductions, including reducing our Chief Executive Officer’s salary by 100%, these reductions are being phased back in during the third quarter with the exception of our Chief Executive Officer; * we imposed compensation cuts broadly throughout our corporate workforce and canceled all non-essential corporate travel and spending; * we have temporarily suspended repurchases of our ordinary shares under our share repurchase program until we have more visibility into the longer-term impact of COVID-19 and economic conditions improve; and * we also significantly reduced marketing expenditures during the second quarter.In addition, the recent reduction in the size of our Board of Directors to align with the Company’s size and needs will further reduce our expenses.We cannot predict when the effects of the pandemic will subside, and thus we cannot predict when we will be able to reopen our remaining resorts, whether our resorts will be permitted to remain open or when our business will return to normalized levels. There also can be no guarantee that when the effects of the pandemic subside that there will not be a later resurgence of the virus or that the demand for lodging, and consumer confidence in travel generally, will recover as quickly as other industries. The longer and more severe the pandemic, and the possibility of repeat or cyclical outbreaks of the virus beyond the one currently being experienced, the greater the material adverse effect the pandemic will have on our business, results of operations, cash flows, financial condition, access to credit markets and ability to service our indebtedness.

Risk Factors” included in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for additional information.Financial and Operating ResultsThe following table sets forth information with respect to the operating results of our total portfolio and comparable portfolio for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 ($ in thousands):Total Portfolio          Three Months Ended June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,    2020 2019 Change 2020 2019 Change Occupancy—% 79.8% (79.8)pts 33.6% 79.9% (46.3)pts Net Package ADR$—  $257.66  (100.0)% $297.28  $281.93  5.4% Net Package RevPAR$—  $205.55  (100.0)% $100.01  $225.37  (55.6)% Total Net Revenue (1)$524  $155,454  (99.7)% $171,688  $344,395  (50.1)% Owned Net Revenue (2)$522  $154,889  (99.7)% $171,026  $342,894  (50.1)% Owned Resort EBITDA (3)$(23,798) $49,394  (148.2) % $36,871  $131,751  (72.0)% Owned Resort EBITDA Margin(4,559.0)% 31.9% (4,590.9)pts 21.6% 38.4% (16.8)pts Other corporate$7,606  $9,887  (23.1) % $18,577  $18,393  1.0% Management Fee Revenue$(18) $551  (103.3)% $627  $1,485  (57.8)% Adjusted EBITDA (4)$(31,422) $40,058  (178.4) % $18,921  $114,843  (83.5)% Adjusted EBITDA Margin(5,996.6)% 25.8% (6,022.4)pts 11.0% 33.3% (22.3)pts                    Comparable Portfolio (5)          Three Months Ended June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,    2020 2019 Change 2020 2019 Change Occupancy—% 81.3% (81.3)pts 35.7% 82.8% (47.1)pts Net Package ADR$—  $265.62  (100.0)% $300.49  $289.99  3.6% Net Package RevPAR$—  $215.89  (100.0)% $107.35  $240.13  (55.3)% Total Net Revenue (1)$735  $132,207  (99.4)% $129,272  $287,878  (55.1)% Owned Net Revenue (2)$733  $131,642  (99.4)% $128,610  $286,377  (55.1)% Owned Resort EBITDA (3)$(17,342) $44,552  (138.9) % $30,080  $113,002  (73.4)% Owned Resort EBITDA Margin(2,365.9)% 33.8% (2,399.7)pts 23.4% 39.5% (16.1)pts Other corporate$7,606  $9,887  (23.1) % $18,577  $18,393  1.0% Management Fee Revenue$(18) $551  (103.3)% $627  $1,485  (57.8)% Adjusted EBITDA (4)$(24,966) $35,216  (170.9) % $12,130  $96,094  (87.4)% Adjusted EBITDA Margin(3,396.7)% 26.6% (3,423.3)pts 9.4% 33.4% (24.0)pts                    (1)           Total Net Revenue represents revenue from the sale of all-inclusive packages, which include room accommodations, food and beverage services and entertainment activities, net of compulsory tips paid to employees, as well as revenue from other goods, services and amenities not included in the all-inclusive package.

The terms of the Senior Secured Credit Facility remain in effect except for the following terms modified by the Fourth Amendment: 1. replace the total net leverage ratio requirement of the financial covenant with a minimum liquidity test until September 30, 2021 (the “Relief Period”); 2. modify the financial covenant for certain test dates after the Relief Period as follows: * 6.50x for the period ended September 30, 2021; * 6.00x for the period ended December 31, 2021; and * 4.75x for periods thereafter. 3. add certain restrictions on, among other things, the incurrence of additional debt and making of investments, dispositions and restricted payments during the Relief Period.Additional Credit FacilityOn June 12, 2020, we entered into an additional senior secured credit facility with an average interest rate of 9.25% that matures on April 27, 2024 and ranks pari passu with the Existing Credit Agreement (the “Additional Credit Facility”). The Additional Credit Facility consists of the following term loans: 1. $35.0 million term loan at fixed rate of 11.4777% (the “Term A1 Loan”); 2. $31.0 million term loan at fixed rate of 11.4777% (the “Term A2 Loan”); and 3. $28.0 million term loan at our option of either a base rate plus a margin of 2.00% or LIBOR plus 3.00% (the “Term A3 Loan”). Term A3 Loan is subject to a 1.0% LIBOR floor consistent with the Existing Credit Agreement.Prior to the maturity date, the Additional Credit Facility does not require principal payments, but does include mandatory prepayment requirements for the Term A3 Loan that are consistent with the Existing Credit Agreement. Mandatory prepayments are required for certain asset sales, casualty events and condemnation events (the “Triggering Events”) that are not reinvested in our business where our total net leverage ratio is above 4.00x. We may not voluntarily prepay any portion of the Additional Credit Facility prior to June 2023 without paying a make-whole premium equal to 100% of the interest that would have otherwise accrued from the date of such payment through June 2022 plus 50% of the interest that otherwise would have accrued from June 2022 to June 2023. Subsequent to June 2023, we may prepay any portion of the Additional Credit Facility without penalty.In connection with the Additional Credit Facility, we terminated the remaining $15.0 million of unused capacity of our Revolving Credit Facility under the Existing Credit Agreement. The Additional Credit Facility contains covenants (including a springing financial maintenance covenant) identical to those contained in the Existing Credit Agreement.Property Loan AgreementOn June 12, 2020, we entered into a property loan agreement in the amount of $110.0 million that has a fixed interest rate of 9.25% and matures on July 1, 2025 (the “Property Loan”). Prior to maturity, the Property Loan does not require principal payments. The Property Loan is collateralized by the mortgages of our Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana properties located in the Dominican Republic and the Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa located in Jamaica (collectively the "Properties"). We intend to use the proceeds of the Property Loan to finance the operation and management of the Properties and for general corporate purposes.During the term of the Property Loan, we are required to deposit certain cash reserves including reserves for cash operating expenses, debt service and certain property improvement plan required work. We will continue to fund the reserves until the Properties achieve a debt service coverage ratio of 1.50x for two consecutive calendar quarters. These reserves are presented as restricted cash on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet, which had a balance of $27.9 million as of June 30, 2020.Earnings CallThe Company will host a conference call to discuss its second quarter results on Friday, August 7, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time).

Forward-looking statements reflect Playa’s current expectations and projections about future events at the time, and thus involve uncertainty and risk. The words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “may,” “plan,” “estimate,” “intend,” “predict,” “potential,” “continue,” and the negatives of these words and other similar expressions generally identify forward looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are subject to various factors that could cause actual outcomes or results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements. including the risks described under the sections entitled “Risk Factors” of Playa’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC on February 27, 2020 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed May 11, 2020, as such factors may be updated from time to time in Playa’s periodic filings with the SEC, which are accessible on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. These factors should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included in this release and in Playa’s filings with the SEC. Currently, one of the most significant factors that could cause actual outcomes to differ materially from our forward-looking statements is the adverse effects of the current COVID-19 pandemic on the financial condition, operating results and cash flows of Playa, the airlines that service the locations where Playa owns resorts, the short and longer-term demand for travel, the global economy and the local economies where Playa owns its resorts, and the financial markets. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic all of Playa’s resorts temporarily suspended operations from March 2020 until July 2020 and operations at 9 resorts continue to be suspended. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic will impact Playa and consumer behavior will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the scope, severity and duration of the pandemic, any resurgence of the pandemic after conditions initially improve, the actions taken to contain the pandemic or mitigate its impact, and the direct and indirect economic effects of the pandemic and containment measures, including magnitude of its impact on unemployment rates and consumer discretionary spending, among others. While forward-looking statements reflect Playa’s good faith beliefs, they are not guarantees of future performance. Playa disclaims any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement to reflect changes in underlying assumptions or factors, new information, data or methods, future events or other changes after the date of this press release, except as required by applicable law. You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which are based only on information currently available to Playa (or to third parties making the forward-looking statements).Definitions of Non-U.S. GAAP Measures and Operating StatisticsOccupancy“Occupancy” represents the total number of rooms sold for a period divided by the total number of rooms available during such period. The total number of rooms available excludes any rooms considered “Out of Order” due to renovation or a temporary problem rendering them inadequate for occupancy for an extended period of time. Occupancy is a useful measure of the utilization of a resort’s total available capacity and can be used to gauge demand at a specific resort or group of properties during a given period. Occupancy levels also enable us to optimize Net Package ADR by increasing or decreasing the stated rate for our all-inclusive packages as demand for a resort increases or decreases.Net Package Average Daily Rate (“Net Package ADR”)“Net Package ADR” represents total Net Package Revenue for a period divided by the total number of rooms sold during such period. Net Package ADR trends and patterns provide useful information concerning the pricing environment and the nature of the guest base of our portfolio or comparable portfolio, as applicable. Net Package ADR is a commonly used performance measure in the all-inclusive segment of the lodging industry, and is commonly used to assess the stated rates that guests are willing to pay through various distribution channels.Net Package Revenue per Available Room (“Net Package RevPAR”)“Net Package RevPAR” is the product of Net Package ADR and the average daily occupancy percentage. Net Package RevPAR does not reflect the impact of non-package revenue. Although Net Package RevPAR does not include this additional revenue, it generally is considered the key performance measure in the all-inclusive segment of the lodging industry to identify trend information with respect to net room revenue produced by our portfolio or comparable portfolio, as applicable, and to evaluate operating performance on a consolidated basis or a regional basis, as applicable.Net Package Revenue, Net Non-package Revenue, Owned Net Revenue, Management Fee Revenue, Cost Reimbursements and Total Net Revenue“Net Package Revenue” is derived from the sale of all-inclusive packages, which include room accommodations, food and beverage services and entertainment activities, net of compulsory tips paid to employees. Government mandated compulsory tips in the Dominican Republic are not included in this adjustment, as they are already excluded from revenue. Revenue is recognized, net of discounts and rebates, when the rooms are occupied and/or the relevant services have been rendered. Advance deposits received from guests are deferred and included in trade and other payables until the rooms are occupied and/or the relevant services have been rendered, at which point the revenue is recognized.“Net Non-package Revenue” represents all other revenues earned from the operations of our resorts, other than Net Package Revenue, net of compulsory tips paid to employees. Government mandated compulsory tips in the Dominican Republic are not included in this adjustment, as they are already excluded from revenue. Net Non-package Revenue includes revenue associated with guests' purchases of upgrades, premium services and amenities, such as premium rooms, dining experiences, wines and spirits and spa packages, which are not included in the all-inclusive package. Revenue not included in a guest’s all-inclusive package is recognized when the goods are consumed.“Owned Net Revenue” represents Net Package Revenue and Net Non-package Revenue. Owned Net Revenue represents a key indicator to assess the overall performance of our business and analyze trends, such as consumer demand, brand preference and competition. In analyzing our Owned Net Revenues, our management differentiates between Net Package Revenue and Net Non-package Revenue. Guests at our resorts purchase packages at stated rates, which include room accommodations, food and beverage services and entertainment activities, in contrast to other lodging business models, which typically only include the room accommodations in the stated rate. The amenities at all-inclusive resorts typically include a variety of buffet and á la carte restaurants, bars, activities, and shows and entertainment throughout the day.“Management Fee Revenue” is derived from fees earned for managing hotels owned by third-parties. The fees earned are typically composed of a base fee, which is computed as a percentage of revenue, and an incentive fee, which is computed as a percentage of profitability.“Total Net Revenue” represents Net Package Revenue, Net Non-package Revenue and Management Fee Revenue. “Cost Reimbursements” is excluded from Total Net Revenue as it is not considered a key indicator of financial and operating performance. Cost Reimbursements is derived from the reimbursement of certain costs incurred by Playa on behalf of resorts managed by Playa and owned by third parties. This revenue is fully offset by reimbursable costs and has no net impact on operating (loss) income or net (loss) income.The following table shows a reconciliation of Net Package Revenue, Net Non-package Revenue and Management Fee Revenue to total revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 ($ in thousands):Total Portfolio      Three Months Ended June 30, Six Months Ended June 30,  2020 2019 2020 2019 Net Package Revenue        Comparable Net Package Revenue$535  $111,412  $110,816  $246,236  Non-comparable Net Package Revenue(233) 19,484  37,582  48,447  Net Package Revenue302  130,896  148,398  294,683           Net Non-package Revenue        Comparable Net Non-package Revenue218  20,244  17,829  40,157  Non-comparable Net Non-package Revenue22  3,763  4,834  8,070  Net Non-package Revenue240  24,007  22,663  48,227           Management Fee Revenue        Comparable Management Fee Revenue(18) 551  627  1,485  Non-comparable Management Fee Revenue—  —  —  —  Management Fee Revenue(18) 551  627  1,485           Total Net Revenue        Comparable Total Net Revenue735  132,207  129,272  287,878  Non-comparable Total Net Revenue(211) 23,247  42,416  56,517  Total Net Revenue524  155,454  171,688  344,395  Compulsory tips—  5,620  5,114  11,887  Cost Reimbursements458  2,949  1,408  3,537  Total revenue$982  $164,023  $178,210  $359,819                   EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Owned Resort EBITDA, Owned Resort EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EBITDA MarginWe define EBITDA, a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure, as net income or loss, determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, for the period presented, before interest expense, income tax and depreciation and amortization expense. We define Adjusted EBITDA, a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure, as EBITDA further adjusted to exclude the following items: * Other income or expense * Pre-opening expense * Transaction expenses * Severance expense * Other tax expense * Gain on property damage insurance proceeds * Share-based compensation * Loss on extinguishment of debt * Other items which may include, but are not limited to the following: management contract termination fees; gains or losses from legal settlements; repairs from hurricanes and tropical storms and impairment losses.We include the non-service cost components of net periodic pension cost or benefit recorded within other income (expense) in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations in calculating Adjusted EBITDA as they are considered part of our ongoing resort operations.“Owned Resort EBITDA” represents Adjusted EBITDA before corporate expenses and Management Fee Revenue.“Owned Resort EBITDA Margin” represents Owned Resort EBITDA as a percentage of Owned Net Revenue.“Adjusted EBITDA Margin” represents Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Total Net Revenue.Adjusted Net (Loss) Income“Adjusted Net (Loss) Income” represents net income or loss attributable to Playa, determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding special items which are not reflective of our core operating performance, such as one-time expenses related to transaction expenses.Non-U.S. GAAP MeasuresWe believe that each of Net Package Revenue, Net Non-package Revenue, Owned Net Revenue, Total Net Revenue, Net Package ADR, Net Package RevPAR and Net Direct Expenses are useful to investors as they reflect our operating results by excluding compulsory tips. These tips have a margin of zero and do not represent our operating results.We also believe that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors for two principal reasons. First, we believe Adjusted EBITDA assists investors in comparing our performance over various reporting periods on a consistent basis by removing from our operating results the impact of items that do not reflect our core operating performance. For example, changes in foreign exchange rates (which are the principal driver of changes in other expense), and expenses related to capital raising, strategic initiatives and other corporate initiatives, such as expansion into new markets (which are the principal drivers of changes in transaction expenses), are not indicative of the operating performance of our resorts. The other adjustments included in our definition of Adjusted EBITDA relate to items that occur infrequently and therefore would obstruct the comparability of our operating results over reporting periods. For example, revenue from insurance policies, other than business interruption insurance policies, is infrequent in nature, and we believe excluding these expense and revenue items permits investors to better evaluate the core operating performance of our resorts over time. We believe Adjusted EBITDA Margin provides our investors a useful measurement of operating profitability for the same reasons we find Adjusted EBITDA useful.The second principal reason that we believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors is that it is considered a key performance indicator by our board of directors (our “Board”) and management. In addition, the compensation committee of our Board determines the annual variable compensation for certain members of our management based, in part, on consolidated Adjusted EBITDA. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it provides investors with information utilized by our Board and management to assess our performance and may (subject to the limitations described below) enable investors to compare the performance of our portfolio to our competitors.Adjusted Net (Loss) Income is non-GAAP performance measure that provides meaningful comparisons of ongoing operating results, by removing from net income the impact of items that do not reflect our normalized operations.Our non-U.S. GAAP financial measures are not substitutes for revenue, net income or any other measure determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. There are limitations to the utility of non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, such as Adjusted EBITDA. For example, other companies in our industry may define Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do. As a result, it may be difficult to use Adjusted EBITDA or similarly named non-U.S. GAAP financial measures that other companies publish to compare the performance of those companies to our performance. Because of these limitations, our non-U.S. GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a measure of the income or loss generated by our business or discretionary cash available for investment in our business, and investors should carefully consider our U.S. GAAP results presented. A reconciliation of net income as computed under U.S. GAAP to Adjusted Net (Loss) Income is presented below.Comparable Non-U.S. GAAP MeasuresWe believe that presenting Adjusted EBITDA, Total Net Revenue, Net Package Revenue and Net Non-package Revenue on a comparable basis is useful to investors because these measures include only the results of resorts owned and in operation for the entirety of the periods presented and thereby eliminate disparities in results due to the acquisition or disposition of resorts or the impact of resort closures or re-openings in connection with redevelopment or renovation projects. As a result, we believe these measures provide more consistent metrics for comparing the performance of our operating resorts. We calculate Comparable Adjusted EBITDA, Comparable Total Net Revenue, Comparable Net Package Revenue and Comparable Net Non-package Revenue as the total amount of each respective measure less amounts attributable to non-comparable resorts, by which we mean resorts that were not owned or in operation during some or all of the relevant reporting period.Our comparable resorts for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 exclude the following: Hilton La Romana All-Inclusive Resort and Hilton Playa del Carmen All-Inclusive Resort, which were under renovation in 2019, Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana, a ground-up development open during November 2019 and Jewel Dunn’s River Beach Resort & Spa and Jewel Runaway Bay Beach Resort & Waterpark which were sold in May 2020.A reconciliation of net income as computed under U.S. GAAP to comparable Adjusted EBITDA is presented below.
