*Dollars in thousands except for RevPAR and per share data

In this press release, Lodgian uses the term "Adjusted EBITDA" to mean
earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"),
but excluding the effects of the following charges: impairment losses; and
casualty (gains)/losses, net, for properties damaged by events such as
hurricane, fire or flood. A reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA
to loss from continuing operations is included in the tables that
accompany this press release.

Fourth Quarter 2009 Results

Fourth quarter 2009 total revenue for our 33 continuing operations hotels declined approximately 18.2 percent to $41.8 million, compared to the 2008 fourth quarter.  Occupancy decreased 10.6 percent to 57.2 percent, while average daily rate decreased 9.1 percent to $90.56 in the 2009 fourth quarter.  Loss from continuing operations was $(8.4) million, compared to $(4.9) million in the 2008 fourth quarter.  

Net loss attributable to common shares was $(2.3) million, or $(0.11) per share, compared to a net loss of $(4.7) million, or $(0.22) per share in the 2008 fourth quarter.  The lower net loss in the 2009 fourth quarter was due to net income from discontinued operations of $5.7 million, which was driven by a net $6.1 million gain on property sales.

EBITDA from continuing operations hotels declined $(3.7) million to $3.7 million, compared to the prior year's fourth quarter.  Adjusted EBITDA for the same properties decreased from $8.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2008 to $4.0 millionin the 2009 fourth quarter.  Adjusted EBITDA margins for the 33 continuing operations hotels declined 750 basis points to 9.7 percent during the 2009 fourth quarter, compared to the 2008 fourth quarter, due to the significant decline in revenue.

Full Year 2009 Results

2009 total revenue for continuing operations hotels declined 17.4 percent to $188.5 million from $228.2 million in 2008.  Occupancy decreased 9.9 percent to 63.1 percent, while average daily rate decreased 9.0 percent to $96.56 in 2009.  Loss from continuing operations was $(50.3) million, compared to $(8.0) million in 2008, due to impairment losses of$30.7 million recorded during 2009 compared to $4.5 million of impairment losses recorded during 2008, as well as the significant decline in revenue.

Net loss attributable to common shares was $(52.4) million, or $(2.46) per share, compared to a net loss of $(12.0) million, or $(0.55) per diluted share in 2008.

EBITDA from continuing operations hotels declined to $(2.5) million, compared to $40.2 million the prior year, due largely to the previously discussed impairment losses.  Adjusted EBITDA for the same properties decreased from $45.8 million in 2008 to $28.3 million in 2009.  Adjusted EBITDA margins for the 33 continuing operations hotels decreased 500 basis points to 15.0 percent for the 2009 full year due to the significant revenue decline.

Management Comments

"Competition remains fierce as hotels in segments above the hotels in our portfolio continue to discount deeply to attract our guests," said Dan Ellis, Lodgian president and chief executive officer.  "This has especially impacted our contract business.  This pricing war, combined with a very strong 2008 fourth quarter in which we outperformed the industry, impacted our continuing operations hotels' RevPAR, which was down 18.2 percent, compared to an industry average of 11.7 percent.  Our RevPAR market share declined to 98.9 percent, compared to 102.5 percent in the previous year's fourth quarter.  We continue to compete aggressively, but will not take on business solely for the sake of revenue when there is essentially no profit."

Pending Merger Transaction

As previously announced on January 22, 2010, the company entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by LSREF Lodging Investments, LLC ("Purchaser"), in a transaction valued at approximately $270 million, including assumed debt.

Under the terms of the agreement, Purchaser will acquire all of the outstanding common stock of Lodgian for $2.50 per share in an all-cash transaction. The price represents a premium of approximately 67.2 percent over Lodgian's average closing share price during the trading period of one calendar month prior to January 15, 2010 and 64.3 percent over Lodgian's average closing share price during the trading period of six calendar months prior to January 15, 2010.

Lodgian's Board of Directors has unanimously approved the merger agreement and has recommended approval of the transaction by Lodgian shareholders.

Further information can be found in the preliminary proxy statement filed on February 16, 2010.

Asset Disposition Program

During the year, Lodgian sold five hotels for gross proceeds of $21.9 million.  Of the proceeds, $6.8 million was used for debt reduction and the remainder for general corporate purposes.  

As of December 31, 2009, one property remains classified as held for sale.  

Balance Sheet Update

Of the 33 continuing operations hotels, 31 were encumbered by mortgage debt as of December 31, 2009.  These 31 hotels served as collateral for various mortgage debt facilities totaling $287.7 million at December 31, 2009.  In February 2010, the six hotels which secured the Merrill Lynch Fixed Rate Pool 3 ("Pool 3") were transferred to a court-appointed receiver.  A summary of mortgage debt facilities, including Pool 3, is included in the supplemental information attached to this release.  

During the 2009 fourth quarter, the company surrendered control of the Crowne Plaza in Worcester, Mass. to a court-appointed receiver.  As a result, all assets and liabilities were excluded from the company's consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2009.  The company does not believe the limited recourse provisions of the loan secured by the Crowne Plaza will be triggered by this transaction.  

Lodgian has approximately $56 million of mortgage debt maturing in 2010, comprising two single-asset mortgages and the Merrill Lynch Fixed Rate Pool 1.  With respect to the Merrill Lynch Fixed Rate Pool 1, which is the largest maturity in 2010 with a principal balance of $34.5 million, Jones Lang LaSalle continues to pursue refinancing options for this pool on behalf of the company.

At year-end 2009, Lodgian had $31.8 million in unrestricted and restricted cash on its balance sheet, as well as $6.2 million held by lenders for various capital expenditure projects.

Conference Call

Lodgian will hold a conference call to discuss its 2009 fourth quarter and full year results today, February 25, at 10 a.m. Eastern time.  To hear the webcast, interested parties may visit the company's website at www.lodgian.com and click on Investor Relations and then Webcast, Q4 Earnings Conference Call.  A recording of the call will be available by telephone until midnight on Thursday, March 4 by dialing (800) 406-7325, reference number 4231177.  A replay of the conference call will be posted on Lodgian's website.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The historical non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release are reconciled to the comparable GAAP measures in the schedules attached to this press release.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures and should not be used as a substitute for measures such as net income (loss), cash flows from operating activities, or other measures computed in accordance with GAAP.  The company uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to measure its performance and to assist in the assessment of hotel property values.  EBITDA is also a widely used industry measure which Lodgian believes provides pertinent information to investors and is an additional indicator of the company's operating performance.  

The company defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA excluding the effects of certain charges such as impairment losses; and casualty losses or gains related to damage to and insurance recoveries for properties damaged by events such as hurricane, fire or flood.

RevPAR Index

RevPAR Index is computed by dividing the company's RevPAR for a particular period by the market's RevPAR over the same period.  To derive the market's RevPAR, we identify the hotels that the company considers to be competing hotels for each market in which the company operates.  The group of hotels in each market is known as the competitive set.  We then obtain RevPAR for each competitive set from Smith Travel Research, a leading provider of lodging industry data.  We believe that RevPAR Index is a meaningful indicator of our performance because it measures our hotels in relation to our competitors.  We use RevPAR Index to determine if our hotels are increasing market share, which is one of our key business objectives.

Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties that actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements.
