Capital Investment

Acquisitions

During the second quarter of 2014, the Company acquired the remaining 19 percent non-controlling interest in its joint venture with an affiliate of Intercontinental Hotels Group ("IHG") that owns the Holiday Inn Express & Suites located in San Francisco, Calif. for $8.2 million. As a result, this hotel property became wholly-owned by the Company.

"IHG has been a great partner and we look forward to additional opportunities to partner with them in our target markets," Hansen commented.

Pro forma RevPAR among the 23 hotels acquired since January 2013 was $118.06 in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $88.28 for the 66 hotels classified as same-store during the period.

Renovation Capital

The Company invested $6.0 million in renovations in the second quarter of 2014. Among the five renovations during the quarter, the scope of work ranged from common space improvements to complete guestroom renovations, including furniture, soft goods and guest bathrooms. Since the end of the first quarter of 2014, the Company has added 15 guestrooms to its portfolio of 90 hotels through renovation and redesign to better utilize existing space, thereby creating and capturing embedded growth for shareholders.

The Company completed a full renovation of its Residence Inn located in Salt Lake City, Utah during the second quarter of 2014. During the renovation, the Company added 11 guestrooms to the property, bringing the total number of guestrooms to 189. The Company converted 24 underutilized two bedroom units to studio and one bedroom units. In addition to the new guestrooms added, all existing guestrooms were remodeled with new finishes, furniture, mattresses, artwork and 42-inch LCD flat screen televisions. The common areas, including the lobby, reception desk, kitchen and dining areas, were redesigned to allow for more space and better functionality for the guests. To further enhance the guest experience, two outdoor patio areas were updated to include barbeques and a fire pit. The renovation was completed with fresh exterior paint and a new parking lot in May of 2014 for a total cost of $6.9 million.

"We are thrilled with the results of the renovation at the Residence Inn located in Salt Lake City. This project highlights the strength of our team and the ability to recognize and capture embedded growth," Hansen said. "We continue to see the transformation of our portfolio's quality from the successful execution of strategic capital improvements."

At June 30, 2014, the Company had the following:

  • Total outstanding debt of $579.9 million, with a weighted average interest rate of 4.62 percent, and $41.7 million of cash and cash equivalents. The Company's maximum borrowing capacity was $300.0 million under the senior unsecured credit facility, including both the revolver and term portions of the facility.

  • Total net debt, which the Company defines as total outstanding debt less cash and cash equivalents, to trailing twelve month adjusted EBITDA was 4.9x.

As of August 1, 2014, the Company has $148.0 million outstanding on its senior unsecured credit facility, $13.8 million in standby letters of credit and $138.2 million available to borrow.

Dividends

On August 1, 2014, the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of:

  • $0.1175 per share on its common stock and per common unit of limited partnership interest in Summit Hotel OP, LP, the Company's operating partnership.
