RevPAR Growth of 10.1% for Hotels Not Under Renovation

RevPAR Growth of 6.9% for All Hotels

DALLAS, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ashford Hospitality Prime, Inc. (NYSE: AHP) ("Ashford Prime" or the "Company") today reported the following results and performance measures for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013.  On November 19, 2013, the Company completed its spin-off from Ashford Hospitality Trust, Inc. (NYSE: AHT) ("Ashford Trust"), but the Company has presented its financial statements in accordance with GAAP, which requires that historical carve-out financial statements be presented.  Accordingly, the Company's results for the period may not be representative of results in future periods.  In particular, the general & administrative expenses that are shown in the historical carve-out financial statements do not reflect the expected general & administrative costs of the Company, but rather reflect an allocation of the actual general & administrative costs of Ashford Trust.  The Company will have general & administrative costs that it incurs as well as reimbursable costs that Ashford Trust incurs on its behalf.  The Company will also pay a base management fee to Ashford Trust equal to 0.70% times its total enterprise value.  The performance measurements for Occupancy, Average Daily Rate (ADR), Revenue Per Available Room (RevPAR), and Hotel Operating Profit (or Hotel EBITDA) are pro forma.  Unless otherwise stated, all reported results compare the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013, with the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012 (see discussion below).  The reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures is included in the financial tables accompanying this press release.

CAPITAL EXPENDITURES

  • Capex invested in the quarter for the Ashford Prime Portfolio was $7.1 million
  • For the full-year 2013, capex invested in the Ashford Prime Portfolio was $24.5 million

CAPITAL STRUCTURE

At December 31, 2013, the Company had total assets of $962 million in continuing operations.  As of December 31, 2013, the Company had $622 million of mortgage debt in continuing operations of which $49.5 million related to our joint venture partner's share of debt on the Capital Hilton and Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines.  Ashford Prime's total combined debt had a blended average interest rate of 5.3%, with a weighted average debt maturity of 3.6 years. 

On November 19, 2013 Ashford Prime completed its spin-off from Ashford Trust and began trading as an independent public company on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") under the ticker symbol "AHP" on November 20, 2013.  Ashford Trust completed the spin-off by distributing a pro-rata taxable dividend of Ashford Prime common stock to Ashford Trust stockholders of record as of the close of business of the NYSE on November 8, 2013 (the "Record Date").  The distribution was based on a distribution ratio of one share of Ashford Prime common stock for every five shares of Ashford Trust common stock held by such stockholder on the Record Date.  Following the distribution, there were approximately 24.9 million shares of Ashford Prime common stock and partnership units outstanding.  This was comprised of approximately 16.1 million shares of Ashford Prime common stock and 8.8 million partnership units, which includes the partnership units issued to Ashford Trust reflecting its 20% ownership in Ashford Prime's operating partnership. 

In connection with the spin-off, Ashford Prime entered into a new $150 million secured credit facility with Bank of America, N.A. acting as sole administrative agent.  Other participating lenders include Credit Agricole, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, KeyBank, and Morgan Stanley.  The new credit facility provides for a three-year term with two, one-year extension options and bears interest at a range of 2.25% - 3.75% over LIBOR, depending on the leverage level of the Company.  The new credit facility includes the opportunity to expand the borrowing capacity by up to $150 million to an aggregate size of $300 million

Ashford Prime is externally advised by Ashford Hospitality Advisors, a subsidiary of Ashford Trust.  The Company's external advisory agreement differentiates it from other external advisory agreements in the REIT industry.  The agreement's unique structure is designed to reduce the G&A expense burden by avoiding duplication, and provides for management incentives only in the event of outperformance versus a defined peer group; enabling investors to benefit from the management team's extensive experience and tenure together.  Prior to the spin-off, Ashford Trust and Ashford Prime entered into a separation agreement and various other agreements related to the spin-off, as described in the information statement.  Please visit the Company's website at www.ahpreit.com under the Investors section for additional information regarding the spin-off, including links to filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). 

Subsequent to the end of the fourth quarter, on January 29, 2014, the Company closed its previously announced underwritten public offering of 8,000,000 shares of common stock.  On February 4, 2014, the Company announced the full exercise of the underwriters' option to purchase 1,200,000 additional shares of Ashford Prime's common stock.  Including the shares of common stock sold in connection with the underwriters' option, a total of 9,200,000 shares of common stock were sold at a public offering price of $16.50 per share.  Total gross proceeds to the Company from the offering, before deducting the underwriting discount and other estimated offering costs, were $151.8 million.  Ashford Prime intends to use the net proceeds of the offering to acquire the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower and the Pier House Resort in Key West, Florida, and for general corporate purposes and working capital, including the acquisition of additional properties in the ordinary course of business.  BofA Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley acted as the joint book-running managers for the offering.  KeyBanc Capital Markets, Credit Agricole CIB, Credit Suisse, Baird, and Stifel acted as senior co-managers.  FBR, JMP Securities, MLV& Co., and Craig-Hallum Capital Group acted as co-managers.

On February 24, 2014, Ashford Prime announced that it had closed on the acquisition of the 415-room Sofitel Chicago Water Tower for a total consideration of $153 million in cash ($369,000 per key).  Located in the desirable Gold Coast submarket of Chicago, Illinois, the 415-room, four-star hotel features over 10,000 square feet of meeting space.  The property will continue to be managed by Sofitel (Accor SA).  The Company financed the property with $80.0 million of non-recourse mortgage debt priced at L + 2.30% with a 5-year term, including extension options.  The purchase price of $153.0 million represents a trailing 12-month cap rate of 6.0% on net operating income and an EBITDA multiple of 14.1x.  On a forward 12-month basis, the purchase price represents a cap rate of 6.8% on net operating income and an EBITDA multiple of 12.7x.  In 2013, the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower achieved RevPAR of $182, with 82% occupancy and an Average Daily Rate of $222

The Company expects to close its acquisition of the Pier House Resort from Ashford Trust on February 28, 2014 for total consideration of $92.7 million ($653,000/key).  The Company will assume the $69 million mortgage on the property and will pay the balance of the purchase price with cash on hand.

PORTFOLIO REVPAR

As of December 31, 2013, the Ashford Prime Portfolio consisted of direct hotel investments with 8 properties classified in continuing operations.  During the fourth quarter of 2013, 6 of the Ashford Prime Portfolio hotels included in continuing operations were not under renovation.  The Company believes reporting its operating metrics for the Ashford Prime Portfolio hotels in continuing operations on a pro forma total basis (all 8 hotels) and pro forma not under renovation basis (6 hotels) is a measure that reflects a meaningful and focused comparison of the operating results in its portfolio.  Details of each category are provided in the tables attached to this release.

  • Pro forma RevPAR increased 6.9% to $134.12 for all hotels in the Ashford Prime Portfolio on a 5.5% increase in ADR and a 93 basis point increase in occupancy
  • Pro forma RevPAR increased 10.1% to $143.48 for hotels not under renovation in the Ashford Prime Portfolio 4.9% increase in ADR and a 354 basis point increase in occupancy

HOTEL EBITDA MARGINS AND QUARTERLY SEASONALITY TRENDS

The Company believes year-over-year Hotel EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA Margin comparisons are more meaningful to gauge the performance of the Company's hotels than sequential quarter-over-quarter comparisons.  Given the substantial seasonality in the Company's portfolio and its active capital recycling, to help investors better understand this seasonality, the Company provides quarterly detail on its Hotel EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA Margin for the current and certain prior-year periods based upon the number of hotels in the Ashford Prime Portfolio as of the end of the current period.  As the Company's portfolio mix changes from time to time so will the seasonality for Pro forma Hotel EBITDA and Pro forma Hotel EBITDA margin.  The details of the quarterly calculations for the previous four quarters for the 8 Ashford Prime Portfolio hotels included in continuing operations are provided in the table attached to this release.

COMMON STOCK DIVIDEND

On December 16, 2013, the Company announced that its Board of Directors had declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 per diluted share for the Company's common stock for the fourth quarter ending December 31, 2013, payable on January 15, 2014, to shareholders of record as of December 31, 2013.

The Board also approved the Company's dividend policy for 2014.  The Company expects to pay a quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 per share for 2014, or $0.20 per share on an annualized basis.  The Company believes a conservative approach is appropriate given the recent spin-off from Ashford Hospitality Trust, and the Board will continue to review its dividend policy on a quarter-to-quarter basis.  The adoption of a dividend policy does not commit the Board of Directors to declare future dividends or the amount thereof. 

"We are pleased to report our fourth quarter 2013 results, which demonstrate strong RevPAR growth and solid performance in all our operating metrics.  Additionally, we have taken steps to increase our liquidity position such as our new secured credit facility and recent public offering, which gives us more dry powder to continue building out the Ashford Prime portfolio," commented Monty J. Bennett, Ashford Prime's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "Since the successful completion of our spin-off last November, we have already announced the acquisitions of two high RevPAR hotels with prime locations in key U.S. gateway markets.  We intend to continue executing on our investment strategy and look forward to demonstrating the strength of Ashford Prime's portfolio.  The Ashford Prime portfolio was specifically designed to unlock the potential of our high RevPAR assets and we believe this platform is poised to excel as lodging fundamentals continue to remain favorable for the foreseeable future."

Substantially all of our non-current assets consist of real estate investments and debt investments secured by real estate.  Historical cost accounting for real estate assets implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time.  Since real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, most industry investors consider supplemental measures of performance, which are not measures of operating performance under GAAP, to assist in evaluating a real estate company's operations. These supplemental measures include FFO, AFFO, EBITDA, and Hotel Operating Profit.  FFO is computed in accordance with our interpretation of standards established by NAREIT, which may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the term in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the NAREIT definition differently than us.  Neither FFO, AFFO, EBITDA, nor Hotel Operating Profit represents cash generated from operating activities as determined by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to a) GAAP net income (loss) as an indication of our financial performance or b) GAAP cash flows from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity, nor are such measures indicative of funds available to satisfy our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions.  However, management believes FFO, AFFO, EBITDA, and Hotel Operating Profit to be meaningful measures of a REIT's performance and should be considered along with, but not as an alternative to, net income and cash flow as a measure of our operating performance.

Ashford Hospitality Prime is a real estate investment trust (REIT) focused on investing in high RevPAR full-service and urban select-service hotels and resorts located predominantly in domestic and international gateway markets.

These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated, including, without limitation:  general volatility of the capital markets and the market price of our common stock; changes in our business or investment strategy; availability, terms and deployment of capital; availability of qualified personnel; changes in our industry and the market in which we operate, interest rates or the general economy; and the degree and nature of our competition.  These and other risk factors are more fully discussed in Ashford Prime's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  EBITDA is defined as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.  EBITDA yield is defined as trailing twelve month EBITDA divided by the purchase price.  A capitalization rate is determined by dividing the property's annual net operating income by the purchase price.  Net operating income is the property's funds from operations minus a capital expense reserve of either 4% or 5% of gross revenues.  Hotel EBITDA flow-through is the change in Hotel EBITDA divided by the change in total revenues.  Hotel EBITDA Margin is Hotel EBITDA divided by total revenues.  Funds from operations ("FFO"), as defined by the White Paper on FFO approved by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") in April 2002, represents net income (loss) computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of properties and extraordinary items as defined by GAAP, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, and net of adjustments for the portion of these items related to unconsolidated entities and joint ventures. 

The forward-looking statements included in this press release are only made as of the date of this press release.  Investors should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.  We are not obligated to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or circumstances, changes in expectations or otherwise.
