– Advance group bookings remain strong –


NASHVILLE, Tenn.--November 2, 2010--Gaylord Entertainment Co. (NYSE: GET) today reported its financial results for the third quarter of 2010. Highlights from the third quarter include

  • Consolidated revenue decreased 20.3 percent to $158.3 million in the third quarter of 2010 from $198.5 million in the same period last year, and included the impact of the temporary closure of Gaylord Opryland and certain of the Company’s other Nashville-based assets due to the flood damage suffered on May 3, 2010. Adjusted Gaylord Hotels total revenue (which excludes Gaylord Opryland, but includes the Radisson) increased 15.2 percent to $146.8 million in the third quarter of 2010 compared to $127.5 million in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted Gaylord Hotels and adjusted hospitality segment results exclude Gaylord Opryland, but include the Radisson for all periods presented unless specifically noted otherwise. Adjusted Gaylord Hotels revenue per available room1 (“RevPAR”) increased 11.0 percent and Adjusted Gaylord Hotels total revenue per available room2 (“Total RevPAR”) increased 15.1 percent in the third quarter of 2010 compared to the third quarter of 2009. Adjusted Gaylord Hotels Total RevPAR performance in the third quarter of 2010 was impacted by increases in outside the room revenue and by declines in attrition and cancellation fee revenues which were elevated throughout 2009, but declined in the first nine months of 2010 as occupancy levels recovered and demand built. Adjusted Gaylord Hotels Total RevPAR for the third quarter of 2010 included attrition and cancellation fees of approximately $1.6 million collected during the quarter compared to $3.8 million collected in the prior-year quarter.
  • Loss from continuing operations was $31.8 million, or a loss of $0.67 per diluted share (based on 47.2 million weighted average shares outstanding) in the third quarter of 2010 compared to a loss from continuing operations of $6.3 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter (based on 41.1 million weighted average shares outstanding). Loss from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2010 included $6.0 million in pre-tax casualty loss expenses associated with the flood damage at the Company’s Nashville properties, as well as $25.5 million in preopening costs associated with efforts to reopen the Nashville properties. Casualty loss and preopening costs have been segregated from the normal operating costs of the Company and presented separately in the accompanying financial information. Loss from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2010 also included a pre-tax $2.5 million non-cash charge to recognize compensation expense related to amendments to certain executives’ restricted stock unit agreements. Loss from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2009 included a pre-tax $3.0 million non-cash charge to recognize compensation expense related to the surrender of certain executives’ stock options.
  • Adjusted EBITDA3, which includes casualty and preopening costs, was a loss of $7.4 million in the third quarter of 2010 compared to income of $35.9 million in the prior-year quarter.
  • Consolidated Cash Flow4 (“CCF”) decreased 46.8 percent to $21.9 million in the third quarter of 2010 compared to $41.1 million in the same period last year. CCF in the third quarter of 2010 was reduced by a casualty loss impact of $4.8 million, as well as approximately $2.5 million in expense associated with amendments to certain executives’ restricted stock unit agreements.
  • Gaylord Hotels (including Gaylord Opryland) gross advance group bookings in the third quarter of 2010 for all future periods were 433,980 room nights, a decrease of 11.9 percent when compared to the same period last year. Net of attrition and cancellations, advance bookings in the third quarter of 2010 for all future periods were 240,793 room nights, a decrease of 23.3 percent when compared to the same period last year.

Colin V. Reed, chairman and chief executive officer of Gaylord Entertainment, stated, “The Gaylord brand continued to perform well during the quarter. Our Adjusted Gaylord Hotels financial metrics, which exclude Gaylord Opryland but include the Radisson, showed improvements in RevPAR, Total RevPAR, CCF, and CCF Margin4. These results are positive indicators that both the group customer and the transient leisure customer are growing more confident that the economic environment is improving.

“Our Adjusted Gaylord Hotels RevPAR and Total RevPAR performance is especially encouraging given the fact that pricing remains somewhat pressured in the short-term. However, we believe that rates will begin to improve in the coming quarters as hospitality sector conditions continue to stabilize. We also had another solid quarter for advance bookings, as we booked 433,980 gross advance room nights. Although this number represents a decrease compared to our exceptionally strong third quarter last year when we booked almost 500,000 gross room nights, it does not include in-the-year for-the-year bookings that we would have had at Gaylord Opryland if the property had not been closed due to flood-related damage. For the first three quarters of 2010, we have booked over 692,000 net advance group room nights across our hotels for all future periods. This includes the impact of the flood cancellations at Gaylord Opryland and reflects an 18 percent increase over our net production in the first three quarters of 2009. As of September 30th, we have over 4.8 million net room nights booked for all future years. These are strong, positive signs of our customers’ long-term loyalty to our brand and appreciation for the value of the unique offerings we provide.”

Segment Operating Results

Hospitality

Key components of the Company’s hospitality segment performance in the third quarter of 2010 include:

  • Adjusted Gaylord Hotels RevPAR increased 11.0 percent to $117.66 in the third quarter of 2010 compared to $105.99 in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted Gaylord Hotels Total RevPAR increased 15.1 percent to $305.97 in the third quarter compared to $265.75 in the prior-year quarter.
  • Adjusted Gaylord Hotels CCF increased 22.3 percent in the third quarter to $39.3 million compared to $32.1 million in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted Gaylord Hotels CCF Margin increased 160 basis points to 26.8 percent in the third quarter of 2010 compared to 25.2 percent for the same period last year.
  • Adjusted Gaylord Hotels attrition that occurred for groups that traveled in the third quarter of 2010 was 12.0 percent of the agreed-upon room block compared to 14.7 percent for the same period in 2009. Adjusted Gaylord Hotels in-the-year for-the-year cancellations in the third quarter of 2010 totaled 12,593 room nights compared to 9,692 in the same period of 2009. Adjusted Gaylord Hotels attrition and cancellation fee collections totaled $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2010 compared to $3.8 million for the same period in 2009.

Reed continued, “Our profitability was solid again this quarter, with an Adjusted Gaylord Hotels CCF Margin of 26.8 percent, which is 1.6 percentage points higher than the same period last year. As expected, attrition and cancellation fees declined 57.1 percent, which highlights the strength of our revenue, CCF, and CCF Margin performance.”

At the property level, Gaylord Palms posted revenue of $34.3 million in the third quarter of 2010, a 12.9 percent increase compared to $30.4 million in the prior-year quarter, driven primarily by an 11.0 percentage point increase in occupancy and outside the room spend. The occupancy increase was largely driven by an increase in group business. Average Daily Rate (“ADR”) declined 6.6 percent compared to the third quarter of 2009, as group ADR was impacted by lower contracted rates of groups transferred from Gaylord Opryland and the impact of the significant growth in room supply in the Orlando market over the past 18 months. Third quarter 2010 RevPAR increased 10.5 percent to $100.75 compared to $91.19 in the prior-year quarter. Total RevPAR in the third quarter of 2010 increased 12.9 percent to $265.00 compared to $234.75 in the prior-year quarter. CCF in the third quarter of 2010 increased to $6.6 million compared to $5.7 million in the prior-year quarter, resulting in a CCF Margin of 19.4 percent, an 80 basis point increase compared to 18.6 percent in the prior-year quarter.

Gaylord Texan revenue was $44.1 million in the third quarter of 2010, an increase of 11.6 percent from $39.5 million in the prior-year quarter, driven by an increase in ADR and outside the room revenue. Occupancy for the third quarter of 2010 decreased slightly by 0.3 percentage points compared to the third quarter of 2009. RevPAR in the third quarter of 2010 increased 4.0 percent to $113.46 when compared to $109.13 in the prior-year quarter due to the increase in ADR. Total RevPAR increased 11.6 percent in the third quarter of 2010 to $317.34 compared to $284.38 in the prior-year quarter, driven by an increase in food and beverage revenue. CCF increased 30.9 percent to $14.3 million in the third quarter of 2010, versus $10.9 million in the prior-year quarter, resulting in a 32.3 percent CCF Margin, a 480 basis point increase over the prior-year quarter.

Gaylord National generated revenue of $67.1 million in the third quarter of 2010, a 19.7 percent increase when compared to the prior-year quarter of $56.0 million, due to a significant increase in occupancy, partially offset by a decrease in ADR. Occupancy for the third quarter of 2010 was up 16.7 percentage points to 83.3 percent when compared to 66.6 percent in the prior-year quarter, driven by a decrease in group attrition and the transfer of rooms from Gaylord Opryland. The rooms transferred to Gaylord National as a result of the flooding in Nashville in May were honored at the price originally contracted with Gaylord Opryland and were priced lower than the Washington, D.C. market rate. This rate differential contributed to the 5.5 percent decline in ADR. RevPAR in the third quarter of 2010 increased 18.2 percent to $144.98 when compared to $122.68 in the prior-year quarter. Total RevPAR increased 19.7 percent to $365.29 in the third quarter of 2010 when compared to $305.05 in the prior-year quarter. CCF increased 20.2 percent to $18.3 million in the third quarter of 2010 when compared to $15.2 million in the prior-year quarter. CCF Margin was flat at 27.3 percent in the third quarter when compared to 27.2 percent in the prior-year quarter.

Gaylord Opryland remained closed throughout the third quarter due to flood-related damage. The property is scheduled to reopen on November 15, 2010.

Reed continued, “While the flooding in May represented some significant challenges for our Company and the city of Nashville as a whole, we are proud of how our team responded. The intense efforts of our STARS and our entire team has paid off, and after successfully reopening the Grand Ole Opry at the end of September, we are on pace to reopen Gaylord Opryland on time in mid-November as planned. We are also currently anticipating that the total costs associated with the restoration and reopening of the property will be within the original budget projections we communicated in early June. The fact that we have been able to accomplish this work in such a short period of time and within our budget is a testament to the strong culture that defines our brand, and we are looking forward to welcoming our customers back this month to what we believe they will consider an even more extraordinary property.”

Opry and Attractions

Opry and Attractions segment revenue decreased 33.2 percent to $11.0 million in the third quarter of 2010, compared to $16.5 million in the year-ago quarter. The segment’s CCF decreased to $1.1 million in the third quarter of 2010 from $3.8 million in the prior-year quarter. Opry and Attractions revenue and CCF in the third quarter of 2010 was impacted by the flood damage and temporary closure of certain of Gaylord’s Nashville assets, and a reduction in visitor volume due to the closure of Gaylord Opryland. On September 28, 2010 the Grand Ole Opry show and broadcast returned to its permanent location at the rebuilt and fully-restored Grand Ole Opry House.

Corporate and Other

Corporate and Other operating loss totaled $17.3 million in the third quarter of 2010 compared to an operating loss of $15.0 million in the same period last year. Corporate and Other CCF in the third quarter of 2010 decreased $4.9 million to a loss of $14.1 million compared to a loss of $9.2 million in the same period last year. Third quarter 2010 CCF included approximately $2.5 million in expense associated with amendments to certain executives’ restricted stock unit agreements. For each quarter, the difference between Corporate and Other operating loss and Corporate and Other CCF was primarily due to depreciation and amortization expense and non-cash stock option expense.

Casualty Loss

Net casualty loss expense as a result of the flooding for the third quarter of 2010 totaled $6.0 million. This amount included $1.2 million in non-cash impairment expense related to the write-off of flood-damaged assets, $2.9 million in site remediation expense, $1.1 million in non-capitalized repairs, $0.5 million of other flood-related casualty loss expense and $0.4 million of continuing costs related to the flood-impacted businesses. Casualty loss CCF in the third quarter of 2010 was a loss of $4.8 million.

Development Update

Gaylord Entertainment’s planned resort and convention hotel in Mesa, Arizona remains in the very early stages of planning, and specific details of the property and budget have not yet been determined. The Company anticipates that any expenditure associated with the project will not have a material financial impact in the near-term. With the rebuild and reopening efforts at Gaylord Opryland nearly complete, the Company is increasing its efforts to identify and evaluate opportunities for new unit growth.

Liquidity

As of September 30, 2010, the Company had long-term debt outstanding, including current portion, of $1,157.3 million and unrestricted cash of $135.9 million. At the end of the third quarter of 2010, $300 million of borrowings were undrawn under the Company’s $1.0 billion credit facility, and the lending banks had issued $8.6 million in letters of credit, which left $291.4 million of availability under the credit facility.

Outlook

The following business performance outlook is based on current information as of November 2, 2010. The Company does not expect to update the guidance provided below before next quarter’s earnings release. However, the Company may update its full business outlook or any portion thereof at any time for any reason.

Reed concluded, “We are encouraged by the positive signs we continued to see across our business this quarter, particularly the growth in outside the room revenue and improvements in RevPAR and Total RevPAR. These are indicators that the environment is improving and our customers are feeling more confident about spending at our properties and taking advantage of our diverse outside the room offerings. Our strong bookings for future years and the improvements we are seeing in 2011 and 2012 pricing also increase our confidence that our business is well positioned as we look to the future.

“Given our performance thus far and the room nights we have secured for the remainder of 2010, we are reiterating our consolidated CCF guidance for $140-$158 million for full year 2010. Additionally, the performance of our business in 2010 coupled with the bookings and rate data currently on the books for 2011 provides a basis upon which to issue guidance for 2011, which will include Gaylord Opryland at full operational capacity. We are providing 2011 guidance for Adjusted Gaylord Hotels (which excludes Gaylord Opryland, but includes the Radisson) as a RevPAR increase of 7.5 to 9.5 percent and a Total RevPAR increase of 6.5 to 8.5 percent year-over-year. We are providing 2011 guidance for Gaylord Opryland as a RevPAR increase of 13.0 to 15.0 percent and a Total RevPAR increase of 9.0 to 11.0 percent year-over-year. It is important to note that the RevPAR and Total RevPAR growth guidance for Gaylord Opryland is based on a partial year of operation in 2010 due to the flooding in May. Shifting to CCF guidance, as occupancy levels have continued to rise, we have been successful in prudently managing our costs and driving solid profitability margins. Based on our performance, we are providing full year 2011 CCF guidance for Adjusted Gaylord Hotels (which excludes Gaylord Opryland, but includes the Radisson) of $178-$185 million. This includes the impact of a rooms renovation at Gaylord Palms which will result in 39,900 room nights being out of service for 2011. For Gaylord Opryland we are providing 2011 CCF guidance of $73-$77 million. Our 2011 CCF guidance for Opry and Attractions is $12-$14 million and Corporate & Other guidance for CCF in 2011 is a loss of $(48)-$(46) million.

“As the Grand Ole Opry House successfully reopened on September 28, 2010 and we are tracking well against both our budget and our rebuild schedule to successfully reopen Gaylord Opryland on November 15, 2010, we are also reiterating guidance for these and our other flood-damaged Nashville assets.”

This press release contains statements as to the Company’s beliefs and expectations of the outcome of future events that are forward-looking statements as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the statements made. These include the risks and uncertainties associated with the flood damage to Gaylord Opryland and our other Nashville-area Gaylord facilities, which include significant revenue losses and costs associated with the hotel closure and the rebuilding effort, which, in the aggregate, will exceed the coverage under the Company’s insurance policies; risks inherent in the construction process, including significant financial commitments, the risk of fluctuations in the costs of materials and labor and diversion of management time and attention; effects of the hotel closure including the possible loss of experienced employees, the loss of customer goodwill, uncertainty of future hotel bookings and other negative factors yet to be determined, and risks associated with compliance with the Company’s $1.0 billion credit facility; economic conditions affecting the hospitality business generally, rising labor and benefits costs, the timing of any new development projects, increased costs and other risks associated with building and developing new hotel facilities, the geographic concentration of our hotel properties, business levels at the Company’s hotels, our ability to successfully operate our hotels and our ability to obtain financing for new developments. Other factors that could cause operating and financial results to differ are described in the filings made from time to time by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission and include the risk factors described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 and our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarters ended March 31, 2010 and June 30, 2010. The Company does not undertake any obligation to release publicly any revisions to forward-looking statements made by it to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date hereof or the occurrence of unanticipated events.

1 The Company calculates revenue per available room (“RevPAR”) for its hotels by dividing room sales by room nights available to guests for the period.

2 The Company calculates total revenue per available room (“Total RevPAR”) for its hotels by dividing the sum of room sales, food & beverage, and other ancillary services revenue by room nights available to guests for the period.

3 Adjusted EBITDA (defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, as well as certain unusual items) is a non-GAAP financial measure which is used herein because we believe it allows for a more complete analysis of operating performance by presenting an analysis of operations separate from the earnings impact of capital transactions and without certain items that do not impact our ongoing operations such as gains on the sale of assets and purchases of our debt. In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, these items are not included in determining our operating income. The information presented should not be considered as an alternative to any measure of performance as promulgated under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (such as operating income, net income, or cash from operations), nor should it be considered as an indicator of overall financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA does not fully consider the impact of investing or financing transactions, as it specifically excludes depreciation and interest charges, which should also be considered in the overall evaluation of our results of operations. Our method of calculating Adjusted EBITDA may be different from the method used by other companies and therefore comparability may be limited. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net (loss) income is presented in the Supplemental Financial Results contained in this press release.

4 As discussed in footnote 3 above, Adjusted EBITDA is used herein as essentially operating (loss)/income plus depreciation and amortization. Consolidated Cash Flow (which is used in this release as that term is defined in the Indentures governing the Company’s 6.75 percent senior notes) is a non-GAAP financial measure which also excludes the impact of preopening costs, impairment charges, the non-cash portion of the Florida ground lease expense, stock option expense, the non-cash gains and losses on the disposal of certain fixed assets, and adds (subtracts) other gains (losses). The Consolidated Cash Flow measure is one of the principal tools used by management in evaluating the operating performance of the Company’s business and represents the method by which the Indentures calculate whether or not the Company can incur additional indebtedness (for instance in order to incur certain additional indebtedness, Consolidated Cash Flow for the most recent four fiscal quarters as a ratio to debt service must be at least 2 to 1). The calculation of these amounts as well as a reconciliation of those amounts to net (loss) income or segment (or hotel) operating (loss) income is included as part of the Supplemental Financial Results contained in this press release. CCF Margin is defined as CCF divided by revenue.
