Orient-Express Hotels Ltd. (NYSE: OEH, http://www.orient-express.com), owners or part-owners and managers of 49 luxury hotel, restaurant, tourist train and river cruise properties operating in 24 countries, today announced its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

"Orient-Express performed well in the second quarter, reflecting continued positive momentum in the luxury leisure travel market and the solid performance of our iconic properties as well as our train, cruise and other assets," said Bob Lovejoy, Chairman and Interim Chief Executive Officer. "Revenue excluding Real Estate grew by 23% compared to the prior year period, driven by strong performance in Europe, particularly our Italian properties. Adjusted EBITDA before Real Estate increased by 28%, compared with the second quarter of last year, and we delivered our sixth consecutive quarter of RevPAR growth."

"Looking forward, we are encouraged by signs of continued recovery in our market - including favorable booking trends. In addition, we see substantial potential to grow revenue through disciplined capital expenditure programs and our marketing and brand-building initiatives, as well as opportunities to enhance profitability through continued operational improvement. Orient-Express has a deep team of seasoned operating professionals implementing the Company's long-term strategy, and we are keenly focused on profitable growth and building long-term shareholder value."

Business Highlights

Revenue, excluding Real Estate, was $177.4 million in the second quarter of 2011, up $33.3 million or 23% from the second quarter of 2010.

Revenue from Owned Hotels for the second quarter was $145.2 million, up $29.0 million or 25% from the second quarter of 2010. On a same store basis, Owned Hotels RevPAR was up 20% in US dollars and up 14% in local currency.

Trains and Cruises revenue in the second quarter was $25.3 million compared to $21.9 million in the second quarter of 2010, an increase of 16%.

Adjusted EBITDA before Real Estate was $41.1 million, up 28% compared to $32.1 million in the prior year. The principal variance was in the Italian hotels, where EBITDA was up $9.0 million from the same period in the prior year, led by Hotel Cipriani, Venice (up $4.0 million), Grand Hotel Timeo, Sicily (up $1.9 million) and Hotel Splendido, Portofino (up $1.1 million). Other variances include the Copacabana Palace Hotel, Rio de Janeiro (up $1.5 million), Reid's Palace, Madeira (up $1.0 million), Grand Hotel Europe, St Petersburg (up $0.8 million), The Royal Scotsman (up $0.8 million) and share of earnings from Peru hotels (up $0.6 million), offset by The Westcliff, Johannesburg (down $2.4 million), Mount Nelson Hotel, Cape Town (down $1.3 million) and share of earnings from PeruRail (down $2.6 million).

Adjusted net earnings from continuing operations for the second quarter were $7.5 million (adjusted net earnings of $0.07 per common share), compared with $3.3 million ($0.04 adjusted net earnings per common share) in the second quarter of 2010. Net earnings for the second quarter were $5.2 million (reported earnings of $0.05 per common share), compared with a net loss of $0.8 million (reported loss of $0.01 per common share) in the second quarter of 2010.

Property Portfolio Highlights

During the quarter the Company announced that Palacio Nazarenas, its sixth hotel in Peru, is planned to open in early summer 2012. The three year restoration of this 55 key all suite hotel in a former palace and convent, next door to the Company's Hotel Monasterio in Cuzco, has been carried out under the guidance of eight full time archaeologists and the supervision of Peru's National Institute of Culture, with over 318,000ftcubed of earth excavated by hand and each stone numbered and recorded. The total cost of renovation for the hotel, which is owned through the Company's Peruvian joint venture, is expected to be $14.1 million.

Features of this high altitude urban retreat will include oxygenated suites crafted by local artisans, a full service spa offering an indigenous product range, iPads in every room pre-loaded with insider city guides, a mobile phone for each room with reception in Cuzco and the surrounding area, Cuzco's first outdoor heated swimming pool, insightful tours to Machu Picchu and surrounding cultural sites, and an all day dining experience showcasing contemporary Andean cuisine.

In addition, Napasai, Koh Samui, reopened at the end of the quarter following a month long closure, during which a crystal clear lagoon and nature reserve accessible directly from the resort's beach was created under the supervision of the local marine authority. Dead coral and underwater rocks were removed, producing a seven acre natural haven for tropical fish and a diversity of corals which will attract divers and snorkelers to the resort.

On August 1, the Company concluded the sale of Hotel de la Cite, Carcassonne. The property was free of debt and the disposal of this non-core asset delivers EUR9.0 million ($12.9 million) cash proceeds to the Company, less any associated fees.

Two of the Company's hotels recently received significant awards. In June, Conde Nast Traveler (US) voted Maroma's Kinan Spa the #1 Spa in Mexico and Central America, with an overall score of 96.6 out of a possible 100, in its widely-followed annual list of the 250 Best Spas in the United States, Mexico, Caribbean and Canada. In July, Hotel Caruso took home the coveted Top Resort in Europe award in Travel + Leisure's (US) World's Best Awards 2011 readers' survey.

In June, UNESCO designated as a World Heritage Site the Tramuntana mountain range around Deia in Mallorca, home to La Residencia. Each World Heritage site has a cultural or natural significance that, according to UNESCO, "is so exceptional as to transcend national boundaries and of importance for present and future generations of humanity."

Regional Performance

Europe:

In the second quarter, revenue from Owned Hotels was $76.7 million, up $22.1 million or 40% from $54.6 million in the second quarter of 2010. Second quarter revenue at the Italian hotels increased by $15.7 million or 54%, led by strong demand from the UK and US markets. Same store RevPAR was up 36% from the prior year in US dollars (up 28% in local currency). EBITDA for the quarter was $28.8 million compared to $17.0 million in the second quarter of 2010, which represents an $11.8 million increase. This improvement arose largely from the Italian hotels where the impact of refurbishments at Hotel Cipriani and the effect of the Biennale art exhibits in Venice generated EBITDA growth of $4.0 million. Compared with the second quarter of 2010, the Company's two hotels in Sicily achieved year on year EBITDA growth of $2.6 million based on a full quarter of operations in 2011.

North America:

Revenue from Owned Hotels for the quarter was $31.2 million, up 7% from $29.2 million in the second quarter of 2010, due to rate driven increases in revenue at La Samanna, Saint Martin and a combination of occupancy and rate driven growth at Charleston Place, Charleston, offset by a decline at Maroma Resort & Spa in Mexico, where security concerns continue to impact market demand generally to the country. Same store RevPAR in the region increased by 8% in US dollars (up 7% in local currency). EBITDA was $5.8 million compared to $5.4 million in the second quarter of 2010.

Rest of World:

Southern Africa:

Second quarter revenue was $6.2 million, compared to $9.2 million in the second quarter of 2010. Same store RevPAR was down 43% in US dollars (down 48% in local currency). EBITDA was a loss of $1.0 million, compared to a gain of $2.5 million in the second quarter of 2010. The decrease was largely the result of the football World Cup played in South Africa in 2010, although EBITDA has also been negatively impacted by new competition in both Cape Town and Johannesburg and a stronger Rand, resulting in pressure on rates and margins.

South America:

Revenue increased by 38% to $21.7 million in the second quarter of 2011, from $15.7 million in the second quarter of 2010. Year on year revenue increased at Hotel das Cataratas, Iguassu Falls, by $1.5 million or 70% following the major refurbishment that was completed in November 2010. Year on year revenue increased at Copacabana Palace by $4.3 million or 37%, driven by strong ADR and US guest growth. Same store RevPAR in the region increased by 27% in both US dollars and local currency. EBITDA was $4.6 million, compared to $3.0 million last year, an increase of 53%. Local inflationary pressures and a stronger Real impacted margins in the quarter.

AsiaPacific:

Revenue for the second quarter of 2011 was $9.4 million, an increase of $1.9 million or 25% year over year, reflecting growth at all properties except Napasai, Koh Samui, where there was a temporary closure for beach works. Same store RevPAR increased by 26% in US dollars (increase of 29% in local currency). EBITDA was $1.4 million compared to $0.8 million in the second quarter of 2010.

Additional Information

Hotel management and part-ownership interests:

EBITDA for the second quarter of 2011 was $2.5 million compared to $2.2 million in the second quarter of 2010. The improvement was largely attributable to the Company's share of results from Peru hotels, as the second quarter of 2010 was negatively impacted by flooding and landslides in the country. The quarterly result also included $0.3 million of costs relating to the Company's initiative to enter the Management Contract business.

Restaurants:

Revenue from '21' Club, New York, in the second quarter of 2011 was $4.1 million compared to $3.8 million in the same quarter of 2010. EBITDA was a loss of $0.4 million compared to a gain of $0.5 million in the same quarter of 2010 due to a $1.0 million accrual against a contingent liability.

Trains and Cruises:

Revenue increased by $3.4 million to $25.3 million in the second quarter of 2011 from $21.9 million in the prior year, an increase of 16% year over year. EBITDA was $6.1 million compared to $6.8 million in the same quarter of 2010 due to a decrease in share of results from PeruRail of $2.6 million. Both revenue and EBITDA from PeruRail in the second quarter of 2010 included insurance income of $2.8 million.

Central costs:

In the second quarter of 2011, central costs were $8.7 million compared with $5.7 million in the prior year period. The increase was largely due to litigation settlement gains recognized in the prior year ($1.1 million) and non-cash stock option costs ($0.6 million) and legal and other professional service fee increases ($0.4 million) in the current quarter.

Real Estate:

In the second quarter of 2011, there was an EBITDA loss of $2.0 million from Real Estate activities, primarily related to Porto Cupecoy, Sint Maarten, compared with a loss of $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2010. During the quarter, the Company recognized $1.7 million of revenue from three units transferred to customers. Cumulatively, at the end of the quarter, 114 units or 62% of the total had been sold and the legal title of 104 units had been transferred.

Depreciation and amortization:

The depreciation and amortization charge for the second quarter of 2011 was $11.7 million compared with $11.4 million in the second quarter of 2010.

Interest:

The interest charge for the second quarter of 2011 was $11.3 million, up from $7.4 million in the second quarter of 2010 principally due to a $1.7 million one-time write-off of deferred financing costs on debt repayment, higher rates on refinanced debt and interest capitalized in the second quarter of 2010 of $1.9 million.

Tax:

The tax charge for the second quarter of 2011 was $10.0 million, compared to a charge of $7.4 million in the same quarter in the prior year. The second quarter of 2011 included a deferred tax charge of $1.0 million arising in respect of fixed asset timing differences following the appreciation of local currencies against the US dollar, compared to a deferred tax benefit of $0.3 million in the same quarter in the prior year.

Investment:

The Company invested $14.9 million during the quarter, including $1.1 million at Hotel Cipriani, $1.5 million at El Encanto, Santa Barbara, $1.4 million at the two Sicilian properties, $1.1 million at Hotel Splendido, $1.0 million at La Residencia, Mallorca, and routine capital expenditure at other properties.

Balance Sheet

At June 30, 2011, the Company had long-term debt (including the current portion and debt of consolidated variable interest entities) of $703.4 million, working capital loans of $0.7 million, and cash balances of $128.1 million (including $15.1 million of restricted cash), giving a total net debt of $576.0 million compared with total net debt of $610.2 million at the end of the first quarter of 2011. The decrease in net debt reflects the $25.5 million proceeds received in April 2011 following the assignment of the New York hotel project.

Undrawn amounts available to the Company at June 30, 2011 under short-term lines of credit were $4.6 million and undrawn amounts available to the Company under secured revolving credit facilities were $12.0 million, bringing total cash availability (excluding restricted cash) at June 30, 2011, to $129.6 million.

At June 30, 2011, approximately 58% of the Company's debt was at fixed interest rates and 42% was at floating interest rates. The weighted average maturity of the debt was approximately 3.4 years and the weighted average interest rate (including margin and swaps) was approximately 4.5%.

At June 30, 2011, excluding revolving credit facilities of $28.0 million which are available for redrawing, the Company had $48.5 million of debt repayments due within 12 months. These are expected to be met through a combination of operational cash flow, refinancing the facilities and utilizing available cash.

During the quarter, EUR30.0 million ($43.5 million) of debt secured on La Residencia, maturing in September 2011, was refinanced with an EUR18.0 million ($26.1 million) facility maturing in 2014.

The Company's balance sheet as at December 31, 2010 has been restated to correct an understatement of non-current deferred income tax liabilities. The prior period increase to non-current deferred tax liabilities of $6.0 million (and a corresponding decrease to retained earnings) does not affect the Company's net losses or losses per share for the year ended December 31, 2010.

Management evaluates the operating performance of the Company's segments on the basis of segment net earnings before interest, foreign exchange, tax (including tax on unconsolidated companies), depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), and believes that EBITDA is a useful measure of operating performance, for example to help determine the ability to incur capital expenditure or service indebtedness, because it is not affected by non-operating factors such as leverage and the historical cost of assets. EBITDA is also a financial performance measure commonly used in the hotel and leisure industry, although the Company's EBITDA may not be comparable in all instances to that disclosed by other companies. EBITDA does not represent net cash provided by operating, investing and financing activities under US generally accepted accounting principles (US GAAP), is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund all cash flow needs, and should not be considered as an alternative to earnings from operations or net earnings under US GAAP for purposes of evaluating operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net earnings of the Company are non-GAAP financial measures and do not have any standardized meanings prescribed by US GAAP. They are, therefore, unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies, which may be calculated differently, and should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings, cash flow from operating activities or any other measure of performance prescribed by US GAAP. Management considers adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net earnings to be meaningful indicators of operations and uses them as measures to assess operating performance because, when comparing current period performance with prior periods and with budgets, management does so after having adjusted for non-recurring items, foreign exchange (a non-cash item), disposals of assets or investments, and certain other items (some of which may be recurring) which management does not consider indicative of ongoing operations or which could otherwise have a material effect on the comparability of the Company's operations. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net earnings are also used by investors, analysts and lenders as measures of financial performance because, as adjusted in the foregoing manner, the measures provide a consistent basis on which the performance of the Company can be assessed.

This news release and related oral presentations by management contain, in addition to historical information, forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. These include statements regarding earnings outlook, investment plans, debt reduction and debt refinancings, asset sales and similar matters that are not historical facts. These statements are based on management's current expectations and are subject to a number of uncertainties and risks that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause a difference include, but are not limited to, those mentioned in the news release and oral presentations, unknown effects on the travel and leisure markets of terrorist activity and any police or military response, varying customer demand and competitive considerations, failure to realize hotel bookings and reservations and planned property development sales as actual revenue, inability to sustain price increases or to reduce costs, rising fuel costs adversely impacting customer travel and the Company's operating costs, fluctuations in interest rates and currency values, uncertainty of negotiating and completing proposed asset sales, debt refinancings, capital expenditures and acquisitions, inability to reduce funded debt as planned or to agree bank loan agreement waivers or amendments, adequate sources of capital and acceptability of finance terms, possible loss or amendment of planning permits and delays in construction schedules for expansion or development projects, delays in reopening properties closed for repair or refurbishment and possible cost overruns, shifting patterns of tourism and business travel and seasonality of demand, adverse local weather conditions, changing global and regional economic conditions in many parts of the world and weakness in financial markets, legislative, regulatory and political developments, and possible new challenges to the Company's corporate governance structure. Further information regarding these and other factors is included in the filings by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
