Justin Knight, President and Chief Executive Officer of Apple Hospitality REIT, commented, “The year is off to a solid start and performance across our portfolio was generally in line with our expectations for the first quarter. While the growth of leisure travel continued to outpace corporate travel during the quarter, we are seeing indications of increasing corporate demand in many of our markets and are optimistic those trends will strengthen throughout the year. Our highly diversified portfolio is well positioned to benefit from more favorable business travel trends which allow us to drive incremental efficiencies at the property level. We continue to be optimistic about the prospects for the year and remain confident in the fundamentals of our portfolio.”

Portfolio Activity

On February 5, 2018, Apple Hospitality acquired an existing 119-room Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton® in Atlanta, Georgia, and an existing 144-room Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton® in Memphis, Tennessee, for a combined total purchase price of $63 million.

On May 2, 2018, the Company acquired the newly built 210-room Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton® in Phoenix, Arizona, for a total purchase price of approximately $44 million.

In April 2018, the Company entered into a contract for the potential purchase of a planned dual-branded Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton® and Home2 Suites by Hilton® property in Cape Canaveral, Florida, with a combined total of 224 guest rooms. The purchase price is approximately $47 million, and the hotels are anticipated to open in 2020. There are many conditions to closing, and there can be no assurance the hotels will be acquired.

Capital Improvements

Apple Hospitality consistently reinvests in its hotels to maintain and enhance each property’s relevance and competitive position within its respective market. During the quarter ended March 31, 2018, the Company invested approximately $18 million in capital expenditures. The Company plans to continue to reinvest in its hotels and anticipates investing an additional $50 million to $60 million in capital improvements during the remainder of 2018, which includes various scheduled renovation projects for approximately 25 to 30 properties.

Balance Sheet and Capital Markets

As of March 31, 2018, Apple Hospitality had approximately $1.3 billion of total outstanding indebtedness with a current combined weighted-average interest rate of approximately 3.7 percent for the remainder of 2018. Excluding unamortized debt issuance costs and fair value adjustments, the Company’s total outstanding indebtedness is comprised of approximately $499 million in property-level debt secured by 31 hotels and $831 million outstanding on its unsecured credit facilities. Apple Hospitality’s undrawn capacity on its unsecured credit facilities at March 31, 2018, was approximately $369 million. The Company’s total debt to total capitalization at March 31, 2018, was approximately 25 percent, which provides Apple Hospitality with financial flexibility to fund capital requirements and pursue opportunities in the marketplace.

Shareholder Distributions

Apple Hospitality paid distributions of $0.30 per common share during the three-month period ended March 31, 2018. Based on the Company’s common share closing price of $18.07 on May 3, 2018, the annualized distribution rate of $1.20 per common share represents an annual yield of approximately 6.6 percent. The Company’s Board of Directors, in consultation with management, will continue to regularly monitor the Company’s distribution rate relative to the performance of its hotels, capital improvement needs, varying economic cycles, acquisitions and dispositions. At its discretion, the Company’s Board of Directors may make adjustments as determined to be prudent in relation to other cash requirements of the Company.

2018 Outlook

Apple Hospitality is providing its operational and financial outlook for 2018. This outlook, which is based on management’s current view of both operating and economic fundamentals of the Company’s existing portfolio of hotels, does not take into account any unanticipated developments in its business or changes in its operating environment, nor does it take into account any unannounced hotel acquisitions or dispositions. Comparable Hotels RevPAR Growth and Comparable Hotels Adjusted Hotel EBITDA Margin % guidance include properties acquired, as if the hotels were owned as of January 1, 2017, and exclude completed dispositions since January 1, 2017. For the full year 2018, the Company anticipates:

Apple Hospitality REIT Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company considers the following non-GAAP financial measures useful to investors as key supplemental measures of its operating performance: Funds from Operations (“FFO”); Modified FFO (“MFFO”); Earnings Before Interest, Income Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (“EBITDA”); Adjusted EBITDA (“Adjusted EBITDA”); and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA (“Adjusted Hotel EBITDA”). These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered along with, but not as alternatives to, net income (loss), cash flow from operations, or any other operating GAAP measure. FFO, MFFO, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA are not necessarily indicative of funds available to fund the Company’s cash needs, including its ability to make cash distributions. Although FFO, MFFO, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA, as calculated by the Company, may not be comparable to FFO, MFFO, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA, as reported by other companies that do not define such terms exactly as the Company defines such terms, the Company believes these supplemental measures are useful to investors when comparing the Company’s results between periods and with other REITs. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to net income (loss) are provided in the following pages.

Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA

(Unaudited)

(in thousands)

 

EBITDA is a commonly used measure of performance in many industries and is defined as net income (loss) excluding interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Company believes EBITDA is useful to investors because it helps the Company and its investors evaluate the ongoing operating performance of the Company by removing the impact of its capital structure (primarily interest expense) and its asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization). In addition, certain covenants included in the agreements governing the Company’s indebtedness use EBITDA, as defined in the specific credit agreement, as a measure of financial compliance.

The Company considers the exclusion of certain additional items from EBITDA (Adjusted EBITDA) useful, including (i) the exclusion of transaction and litigation costs (reimbursements), gains or losses from sales of real estate, and the loss on impairment of depreciable real estate assets, as these items do not represent ongoing operations, and (ii) the exclusion of non-cash straight-line ground lease expense, as this expense does not reflect the underlying performance of the related hotels.

The Company further excludes actual corporate-level general and administrative expense for the Company from Adjusted EBITDA (Adjusted Hotel EBITDA) to isolate property-level operational performance over which the Company’s hotel operators have direct control. The Company believes Adjusted Hotel EBITDA provides useful supplemental information to investors regarding operating performance and is used by management to measure the performance of the Company’s hotels and effectiveness of the operators of the hotels.

The following table reconciles the Company’s GAAP net income (loss) to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA on a quarterly basis from June 30, 2016 through March 31, 2018.

Apple Hospitality REIT, Inc.

Reconciliation of Net Income to FFO and MFFO

(Unaudited)

(in thousands)

 

The Company calculates and presents FFO in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“Nareit”), which defines FFO as net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains or losses from sales of real estate, extraordinary items as defined by GAAP, and the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles, plus real estate related depreciation, amortization and impairments, and adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, most real estate industry investors consider FFO to be helpful in evaluating a real estate company’s operations. The Company further believes that by excluding the effects of these items, FFO is useful to investors in comparing its operating performance between periods and between REITs that report FFO using the Nareit definition. FFO as presented by the Company is applicable only to its common shareholders, but does not represent an amount that accrues directly to common shareholders.

The Company further adjusts FFO (MFFO) for the exclusion of non-cash straight-line ground lease expense, as this expense does not reflect the underlying performance of the related hotels. The Company presents MFFO when evaluating its performance because it believes that it provides further useful supplemental information to investors regarding its ongoing operating performance.

The following table reconciles the Company’s GAAP net income to FFO and MFFO for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017.
