HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Revenue and RevPAR.  For the three-month period ending September 30, 2018, Total Revenue increased 12.6% over the three-month period ending September 30, 2017.  Room revenue per available room (“RevPAR”) for the Company’s composite portfolio, which includes the performance of the rooms participating in our rental program at the Hyde Resort & Residences, during the three-month period ending September 30, 2018, increased 2.2% over the three months ended September 30, 2017, to $99.72 reflecting a 2.2% decrease in occupancy and a 4.5% increase in average daily rate (“ADR”). For the nine-month period ending September 30, 2018, RevPAR increased 7.0% over the nine months ended September 30, 2017, to $111.60 driven by a 1.3% decrease in occupancy and an 8.4% increase in ADR.

  • Common Dividends. The Company has declared a quarterly dividend (distribution) on its common stock (and units) of $0.125 per share (and unit) to stockholders (and unitholders) of record as of December 14, 2018, payable on January 11, 2019.

The Company generated hotel EBITDA of approximately $9.2 million during the three-month period ending September 30, 2018, an increase of 14.8%, or approximately $1.2 million, from the three months ended September 30, 2017.

Andrew M. Sims, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sotherly Hotels Inc., commented, “We had a difficult quarter, with most of the negative results being attributable to natural events.  A tropical storm in South Florida during the busy Labor Day weekend, followed by a series of “red tide” warnings along the greater Miami/Fort Lauderdale beaches, and road construction along the A1A caused our South Florida hotels to suffer significant demand loss in the quarter.  Hurricane Florence, a highly destructive and long-lasting hurricane, severely impacted the Carolinas.  Travel throughout the southeast region was disrupted from early September through the end of the month.  While our hotels survived the storm mostly intact and were continuously operating, the resulting demand loss had a significant negative effect on the Company’s profitability.”

Balance Sheet/Liquidity

At September 30, 2018, the Company had approximately $42.0 million of available cash and cash equivalents, of which approximately $5.0 million was reserved for real estate taxes, insurance, capital improvements and certain other expenses or otherwise restricted. The Company had principal balances of approximately $394.5 million in outstanding debt at a weighted average interest rate of approximately 5.10%.

On July 27, 2018, we entered into a loan agreement and other documents, including a promissory note, to secure a mortgage on the DoubleTree by Hilton Raleigh Brownstone-University with MetLife Commercial Mortgage Originator, LLC. The mortgage has an initial principal balance of $18.3 million, with an additional $5.2 million available upon the satisfaction of certain conditions. The mortgage has an initial term of 4 years with a 1-year extension subject to certain terms and conditions, bears a floating rate of interest equal to the 1-month LIBOR rate plus 4.00%. The mortgage requires monthly interest-only payments and, following a 12-month lockout, can be prepaid with a penalty during its second year and without penalty thereafter. We entered into an interest-rate cap agreement to limit our exposure through August 1, 2022 to increases in LIBOR exceeding 3.25% on a notional amount of $23,500,000. We used a portion of the proceeds to repay the existing first mortgage on the DoubleTree by Hilton Raleigh Brownstone-University and to pay closing costs and intends to use the balance of the proceeds for general corporate purposes.

On July 31, 2018, we entered into a second amendment to loan and security agreement; an amended, restated and consolidated mortgage loan note; and other related documents with our existing lender, TD Bank, N.A., to amend the terms of our mortgage loan on the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia Airport.  Concurrent with the loan modification, we also entered into a 5-year swap agreement with The Toronto-Dominion Bank.  Pursuant to the amended loan documents: (i) the principal balance of the loan was increased from approximately $30.0 million to $42.2 million; (ii) the loan’s maturity date was extended to July 31, 2023; (iii) the loan bears a floating interest rate equal to the 1-month LIBOR rate plus 2.27% (the “Loan Rate”); (iv) the loan amortizes on a 30-year schedule with payments of principal and interest beginning immediately; (v) the loan can be prepaid without penalty; and (vi) the loan will no longer be fully guaranteed by the Operating Partnership, but the Operating Partnership has guaranteed certain standard “bad boy” carveouts.  Pursuant to the swap agreement: (i) the Loan Rate is swapped for a fixed interest rate of 5.237%; (ii) notional amounts of the swap approximate the declining balance of the loan; and (iii) we are responsible for any potential termination fees associated with early termination of the swap agreement.  We used a portion of the proceeds to repay in full the existing Note B to the mortgage loan on our Hyatt Centric Arlington and to pay closing costs associated with the amendment and will use the balance of the proceeds for general corporate purposes.

On August 31, 2018, we entered into a Sales Agency Agreement, with Sandler O’Neill & Partners, L.P. (“Sandler O’Neill”), under which the Company may sell from time to time through Sandler O’Neill, as sales agent, shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share, having an aggregate gross sales price of up to $5,000,000 and up to 400,000 shares of the Company’s 7.875% Series C Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, $0.01 par value per share.  Through September 30, 2018, the Company sold 88,297 shares of common stock and 50,541 shares of Series C Preferred Stock, for an aggregate net total of approximately $1.8 million.

On September 18, 2018, we entered into a loan agreement and other documents, including a promissory note, to secure a mortgage on the Hyatt Centric Arlington with MetLife Real Estate Lending LLC.  Pursuant to the loan documents, the Mortgage Loan has an initial principal balance of $50.0 million; has a term of 10 years; bears a fixed interest rate of 5.25%; amortizes on a 30-year schedule; and following a 5-year lockout, can be prepaid with penalty in years 6-10 and without penalty during the final 4 months of the term.  The Company used the proceeds to repay the existing first mortgage on the Hyatt Centric Arlington, to pay closing costs, and for general corporate purposes.

Portfolio Update

At the Company’s hotel in Tampa, Florida, renovations are underway for an estimated $11.0 million renovation project in anticipation of a planned conversion in June 2019 from the Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore to Hotel Alba, which we expect to become a member of the Tapestry Collection by Hilton.  As of September 30, 2018, we incurred costs totaling approximately $5.4 million toward this renovation.

2018 Updated Outlook

The Company is updating its previously issued guidance for 2018, accounting for current and expected performance within its portfolio, taking into account market conditions, the refinance of the Hyatt Centric Arlington, and weather-related events, including Hurricane Florence.  The updated guidance is predicated on estimates of occupancy and ADR that are consistent with the most recent 2018 calendar year forecasts by STR for the market segments in which the Company operates.

KEY OPERATING METRICS

The following tables illustrate the key operating metrics for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, for the Company’s wholly-owned properties (“actual” portfolio metrics), as well as the ten wholly-owned properties in the portfolio that were under the Company’s control during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and the corresponding periods in 2017 (“same-store” portfolio metrics). Accordingly, the same-store data does not reflect the performance of the Crowne Plaza Hampton Marina which was sold in February 2017, our interest in the Hyde Resort & Residences which was acquired on January 30, 2017, or the Hyatt Centric Arlington which we acquired in March 2018.  The composite portfolio metrics represent all of the Company’s wholly-owned properties and the participating condominium hotel rooms at the Hyde Resort & Residences during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and the corresponding periods in 2017.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company considers the non-GAAP measures of FFO (including FFO per share), EBITDA and hotel EBITDA to be key supplemental measures of the Company’s performance and could be considered along with, not alternatives to, net income (loss) as a measure of the Company’s performance. These measures do not represent cash generated from operating activities determined by generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) or amounts available for the Company’s discretionary use and should not be considered alternative measures of net income, cash flows from operations or any other operating performance measure prescribed by GAAP.

FFO

Industry analysts and investors use Funds from Operations (“FFO”), as a supplemental operating performance measure of an equity REIT. FFO is calculated in accordance with the definition adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”). FFO, as defined by NAREIT, represents net income or loss determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding extraordinary items as defined under GAAP and gains or losses from sales of previously depreciated operating real estate assets, plus certain non-cash items such as real estate asset depreciation and amortization, and after adjustment for any noncontrolling interest from unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP 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, many investors and analysts have considered the presentation of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by itself.

The Company considers FFO to be a useful measure of adjusted net income (loss) for reviewing comparative operating and financial performance because we believe FFO is most directly comparable to net income (loss), which remains the primary measure of performance, because by excluding gains or losses related to sales of previously depreciated operating real estate assets and excluding real estate asset depreciation and amortization, FFO assists in comparing the operating performance of a company’s real estate between periods or as compared to different companies. Although FFO is intended to be a REIT industry standard, other companies may not calculate FFO in the same manner as we do, and investors should not assume that FFO as reported by us is comparable to FFO as reported by other REITs.

Adjusted FFO

The Company presents adjusted FFO, including adjusted FFO per share and unit, which adjusts for certain additional items including changes in deferred income taxes, any unrealized gain (loss) on hedging instruments or warrant derivative, loan impairment losses, losses on early extinguishment of debt, aborted offering costs, loan modification fees, franchise termination costs, costs associated with the departure of executive officers, litigation settlement, over-assessed real estate taxes on appeal, change in control gains or losses and acquisition transaction costs. We exclude these items as we believe it allows for meaningful comparisons between periods and among other REITs and is more indicative than FFO of the on-going performance of our business and assets. Our calculation of Adjusted FFO may be different from similar measures calculated by other REITs.

EBITDA

The Company believes that excluding the effect of non-operating expenses and non-cash charges, and the portion of those 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 financing decisions and facilitate comparisons of core operating profitability between periods and between REITs, even though EBITDA also does not represent an amount that accrued directly to shareholders.

Hotel EBITDA

The Company defines Hotel EBITDA as net income or loss excluding: (1) interest expense, (2) interest income, (3) income tax provision or benefit, (4) equity in the income or loss of equity investees, (5) unrealized gains and losses on derivative instruments not included in other comprehensive income, (6) gains and losses on disposal of assets, (7) realized gains and losses on investments, (8) impairment of long-lived assets or investments, (9) loss on early debt extinguishment, (10) gains or losses on change in control, (11) corporate general and administrative expense, (12) depreciation and amortization, (13) gains and losses on involuntary conversions of assets, (14) distributions to preferred stockholders and (15) other operating revenue not related to our wholly-owned portfolio.  We believe this provides a more complete understanding of the operating results over which our wholly-owned hotels and its operators have direct control.  We believe Hotel EBITDA provides investors with supplemental information on the on-going operational performance of our hotels and the effectiveness of third-party management companies operating our business on a property-level basis. The Company’s calculation of hotel EBITDA may be different from similar measures calculated by other REITs.
