July 24, 2014 11:09am
Second Quarter RevPAR improved 10.3%
Achieves highest-ever quarterly hotel EBITDA margin of 37.3%
Adjusted EBITDA grew 17.7% and Adjusted FFO per share increased 12.3%
Second Quarter Results and Activities
“Our portfolio delivered very strong second quarter results,” said Michael D. Barnello, President and Chief Executive Officer of LaSalle Hotel Properties. “RevPAR and margins were above the high end of our outlook. Adjusted EBITDA and FFO also exceeded our outlook, despite impact from the sale of Hilton Alexandria Old Town.”
“Overall, the operating environment remains favorable. Industry demand growth has been robust and fundamentals remain strong.”
“In addition, the sale of Hilton Alexandria Old Town capped off a terrific investment for us, which generated a 13.5 percent unleveraged IRR over 10 plus years. We used a portion of the proceeds to redeem our outstanding Series G Preferred Shares, further reducing our cost of capital.”
For the six months ended June 30, 2014, RevPAR increased 7.8 percent to $177.10, with occupancy growth of 1.1 percent to 79.3 percent and ADR improvement of 6.7 percent to $223.44. The Company’s hotel EBITDA margin was 31.2 percent, which was flat compared to the same prior year period.
As of June 30, 2014, the Company had total outstanding debt of $1.2 billion, including $197.0 million outstanding on its senior unsecured credit facility. Total net debt to trailing 12 month Corporate EBITDA (as defined in the Company’s senior unsecured credit facility) was 3.7 times as of June 30, 2014 and its fixed charge coverage ratio was 3.7 times. For the second quarter, the Company’s weighted average interest rate was 3.6 percent. As of June 30, 2014, the Company had capacity of $575 million available on its credit facilities.
The Company is updating its 2014 outlook to incorporate its recent activities and to reflect its performance-to-date. The sale of Hilton Alexandria Old Town has the impact of reducing our full year adjusted EBITDA outlook by approximately $4.0 million, of which $0.5 million occurred during the second quarter. The outlook is based on an economic environment that continues to improve and assumes no additional acquisitions, dispositions or capital markets activities. The Company’s RevPAR growth and financial expectations for 2014 are as follows:
Third Quarter 2014 Outlook
The Company expects third quarter RevPAR to increase 5.0 percent to 8.5 percent and hotel EBITDA margins to range from approximately flat to an increase of 125 basis points relative to the same prior year period. The Company expects its portfolio to generate adjusted EBITDA of $99.0 million to $105.0 million and adjusted FFO per share/unit of $0.73 to $0.79.
