Subsequent Events

Disposition Update

On January 12, 2017, the Company and an affiliate of American Realty Capital Hospitality Trust, Inc. ("ARCH") entered into an agreement to extend the scheduled closing date on the remaining hotels under contract for sale to ARCH from December 30, 2016 to April 27, 2017 to allow ARCH the necessary time to close on their $400 million convertible preferred investment commitment from an affiliate of Brookfield Asset Management.

As consideration for the closing date extension, ARCH, as borrower, entered into a loan agreement with an affiliate of the Company, as lender, in the amount of $3.0 million.  If ARCH defaults under the terms of the purchase and sale agreement, the loan shall be in force, with the principal balance and any accrued and unpaid interest due and payable on July 31, 2017.  If ARCH acquires the remaining hotels on or before April 27, 2017, the loan shall be rescinded. 

The original $27.5 million loan to ARCH, of which $22.5 million is currently outstanding, along with any accrued and unpaid interest, will be due and payable on the earlier of the closing date of the remaining hotels or February 11, 2018.  If the remaining hotels do not close on or before April 27, 2017, all accrued and unpaid payment-in-kind interest due shall immediately become payable and ARCH shall be required to make $1.0 million principal amortization payments in August and September 2017.  For additional details, please see the Company's Form 8-K filed with the SEC on January 13, 2017.

The Company is providing its outlook for the first quarter and full year 2017 based on its 81 hotels owned as of February 23, 2017.  The Company's Adjusted FFO outlook for the first quarter and full year 2017 reflects the sale of the 90-guestroom Courtyard by Marriott located in El Paso, Texas, for a total sales price of $11.0 million in the first quarter 2017, the sale of the remaining seven ARCH hotels containing 651 guestrooms for a total sales price of $66.8 million in the second quarter 2017, and the acquisition of a 129-guestroom hotel for $38.0 million in the second quarter of 2017.  All of the transactions are subject to customary closing conditions and no assurances can be given that the transactions will close within the expected timeframe or at all.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Funds From Operations ("FFO") and Adjusted FFO ("AFFO")

As defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"), FFO represents net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding preferred dividends, gains (or losses) from sales of real property, impairment losses on real estate assets, items classified by GAAP as extraordinary, the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles, plus depreciation and amortization related to real estate assets, and adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.  Unless otherwise indicated, we present FFO applicable to our common shares and common units.  We present FFO because we consider it an important supplemental measure of our operational performance and believe it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting their results. FFO is intended to exclude GAAP historical cost depreciation and amortization, which assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes ratably over time. Historically, however, real estate values have risen or fallen with market conditions. Because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization related to real estate assets, gains and losses from real property dispositions and impairment losses on real estate assets, it provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, reflects the effect to operations from trends in occupancy, guestroom rates, operating costs, development activities and interest costs, providing perspective not immediately apparent from net income.  FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends or make distributions.  References to FFO are based on the NAREIT-defined measure unless otherwise noted.

We further adjust FFO for certain additional items that are not included in the definition of FFO, such as hotel transaction and pursuit costs, equity-based compensation, loan transaction costs, prepayment penalties and certain other expenses, which we refer to as AFFO. We believe that AFFO provides investors with another financial measure that may facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs.

We caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with our definitions of FFO and AFFO may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies, since not all companies calculate these non-GAAP measures in the same manner. FFO and AFFO should be considered along with, but not as an alternative to, net income (loss) as a measure of our operating performance. FFO and AFFO may include funds that may not be available for our discretionary use due to functional requirements to conserve funds for capital expenditures, property acquisitions, debt service obligations and other commitments and uncertainties. Although we believe that FFO and AFFO can enhance the understanding of our financial condition and results of operations, these non-GAAP financial measures are not necessarily better indicators of any trend as compared to a comparable GAAP measure such as net income (loss). Above we have included a quantitative reconciliation of FFO and AFFO to the most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, which is net income (loss). Dollar amounts in such reconciliation are in thousands.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Hotel EBITDA

EBITDA represents net income or loss, excluding (i) interest, (ii) income tax expense and (iii) depreciation and amortization. We believe EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance because it provides investors with an indication of our ability to incur and service debt, to satisfy general operating expenses, to make capital expenditures, and to fund other cash needs or reinvest cash into our business. We also believe it helps investors meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the effect of our asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from our operating results. Our management also uses EBITDA as one measure in determining the value of acquisitions and dispositions. We further adjust EBITDA by adding back hotel transaction and pursuit costs, equity based compensation, impairment losses, and certain other nonrecurring expenses. We believe that adjusted EBITDA provides investors with another financial measure that may facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs.

With respect to hotel EBITDA, we believe that excluding the effect of corporate-level expenses, non-cash items, and the portion of these items related to discontinued operations, provides a more complete understanding of the operating results over which individual hotels and operators have direct control.  We believe the property-level results provide investors with supplemental information on the ongoing operational performance of our hotels and effectiveness of the third-party management companies operating our business on a property-level basis.

We caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with our definitions of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, and hotel EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies, since not all companies calculate these non-GAAP measures in the same manner. EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, and hotel EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative measure of our net income (loss) or operating performance. EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, and hotel EBITDA may include funds that may not be available for our discretionary use due to functional requirements to conserve funds for capital expenditures and property acquisitions and other commitments and uncertainties. Although we believe that EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, and hotel EBITDA can enhance your understanding of our financial condition and results of operations, these non-GAAP financial measures are not necessarily a better indicator of any trend as compared to a comparable GAAP measure such as net income (loss). Above, we include a quantitative reconciliation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, which is net income (loss). Because hotel EBITDA is specific to individual hotels or groups of hotels and not to the Company as a whole, it is not directly comparable to any GAAP measure. Accordingly, hotel EBITDA has not been reconciled back to net income or loss, or any other GAAP measure, and hotel EBITDA should not be relied on as a measure of performance for our portfolio of hotels taken as a whole. Dollar amounts in such reconciliation are in thousands.
