CHICAGO, Feb. 25, 2014 -- Strategic Hotels & Resorts, Inc. (NYSE: BEE) today reported results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013.
Note: Fourth quarter and full year results include payments pursuant to the JW Marriott Essex House NOI guarantee of $1.4 million and $12.8 million in 2012 and 2013, respectively.
(a) Please refer to tables provided later in this press release for a reconciliation of net (loss)/income to Comparable FFO, Comparable FFO per share and Comparable EBITDA. Comparable FFO, Comparable FFO per share and Comparable EBITDA are non-GAAP measures and are further explained with the reconciliation tables.
(b) Operating statistics reflect results from the Company's Total North American portfolio (see portfolio definitions later in this press release).
(c) Operating statistics reflect results from the Company's North American same store portfolio (see portfolio definitions later in this press release).
"We achieved outstanding operating and financial results across the board in 2013, leading the industry in RevPAR growth and margin expansion," said Raymond L. "Rip" Gellein, Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Strategic Hotels & Resorts, Inc. "We have very positive expectations for 2014, based on our group outlook, continued strength from the transient traveler, and our ability to continue expanding margins across the portfolio. We also look forward to continuing to deleverage the Company's balance sheet and reviewing growth opportunities that meet our strategic and financial thresholds. The luxury sector is well positioned for continued strength given the dearth of competitive new supply in virtually all of our major markets," summarized Gellein.

2013 Transaction Activity
For the full year 2014, the Company is providing the following guidance ranges for its Total United States and United States same-store portfolios. Comparable EBITDA and Comparable FFO per share ranges assume the pending sale of the Four Seasons Punta Mita Resort and adjacent La Solana land parcel closes in the first quarter and proceeds are used to reduce the outstanding balance on the Company's revolving credit facility, partially redeem preferred equity, and other general corporate purposes.
Full year 2014 RevPAR and Total RevPAR growth guidance ranges have been reduced by 100 basis points and the EBITDA margin expansion guidance range has been reduced by 20 basis points as the result of anticipated displacement related to renovation activity.
The Company is additionally providing the following guidance for 2014:
Total United States portfolio hotel comparisons for the fourth quarter and full year 2013 are derived from the Company's hotel portfolio at December 31, 2013, consisting of all 15 properties located in the United States, including unconsolidated joint ventures.
North American same store hotel comparisons for the fourth quarter and full year 2013 are derived from the Company's hotel portfolio at December 31, 2013, consisting of properties located in North America and held for five or more quarters in the case of fourth quarter results and eight or more quarters for full year results, in which operations are included in the consolidated results of the Company. As a result, same store comparisons contain 14 properties for the fourth quarter, including the Four Seasons Punta Mita Resort, but excluding the unconsolidated Hotel del Coronado and Fairmont Scottsdale Princess hotels. Same store comparisons for the full year contain 13 properties, also excluding the JW Marriott Essex House Hotel, which was acquired on September 14, 2012.
European hotel comparisons for the fourth quarter and full year 2013 are derived from the Company's European owned and leased hotel properties at December 31, 2013, consisting of the Marriott London Grosvenor Square and the Marriott Hamburg hotels.
