Room revenue per available room (“RevPAR”) for the Company’s composite portfolio, which includes the performance of the rooms participating in our rental program at the Hyde Resort & Residences, during the three-month period ending June 30, 2018, increased 11.3% over the three months ended June 30, 2017, to $123.17 reflecting a 2.0% increase in occupancy and a 9.1% increase in average daily rate (“ADR”). For the six-month period ending June 30, 2018, RevPAR increased 9.2% over the six months ended June 30, 2017, to $117.81 driven by a 1.1% decrease in occupancy and a 10.3% increase in ADR. -- Common Dividends. As previously reported on July 24, 2018, the Company announced a quarterly dividend (distribution) on its common stock (and units) of $0.125 per share (and unit) to stockholders (and unitholders) of record as of September 14, 2018, payable on October 11, 2018. -- Hotel EBITDA. The Company generated hotel EBITDA of approximately $16.4 million during the three-month period ending June 30, 2018, an increase of 42.2%, or approximately $4.9 million, from the three months ended June 30, 2017. For the six-month period ending June 30, 2018, hotel EBITDA increased 22.9%, or approximately $5.3 million, over the six months ended June 30, 2017. -- EBITDA.

Andrew M.

In terms of Adjusted FFO, we believe the second quarter was one of the most successful in the history of the company. We are pleased with the results and are focused on continuing the positive momentum for the balance of the year and beyond.”

Balance Sheet/Liquidity

At June 30, 2018, the Company had approximately $33.7 million of available cash and cash equivalents, of which approximately $5.3 million was reserved for real estate taxes, insurance, capital improvements and certain other expenses or otherwise restricted. The Company had principal balances of approximately $381.6 million in outstanding debt at a weighted average interest rate of approximately 4.99%.

On April 5, 2018, the Company drew down an additional $3.3 million of loan proceeds available on the Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore mortgage loan.

On May 10, 2018, the Company made a principal payment of approximately $4.0 million on Note B to the Hyatt Centric Arlington mortgage.

Subsequent to the balance sheet date, on July 27, 2018, we entered into a promissory note and other loan documents to secure a mortgage on the DoubleTree by Hilton Raleigh Brownstone-University hotel with MetLife Commercial Mortgage Originator, LLC. The mortgage has an initial principal balance of $18.3 million, with an additional $5.2 million available upon the satisfaction of certain conditions. The mortgage has an initial term of 4 years with a 1-year extension subject to certain terms and conditions, bears a floating rate of interest equal to the 1-month LIBOR rate plus 4.00%, with an interest rate cap of 7.25%. The mortgage requires monthly interest-only payments and, following a 12-month lockout, can be prepaid with a penalty during its second year and without penalty thereafter. We used a portion of the proceeds to repay the existing first mortgage on the DoubleTree by Hilton Raleigh Brownstone-University hotel and to pay closing costs and intends to use the balance of the proceeds for general corporate purposes.

Also subsequent to the balance sheet date, on July 31, 2018, we entered into a second amendment to loan and security agreement; an amended, restated and consolidated mortgage loan note; and other related documents with its existing lender, TD Bank, N.A., to amend the terms of its mortgage loan on the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia Airport hotel. Concurrent with the loan modification, we also entered into a 5-year swap agreement with The Toronto-Dominion Bank. Pursuant to the amended loan documents: (i) the principal balance of the loan was increased from approximately $30.0 million to $42.2 million; (ii) the loan’s maturity date was extended to July 31, 2023; (iii) the loan bears a floating interest rate equal to the 1-month LIBOR rate plus 2.27% (the “Loan Rate”); (iv) the loan amortizes on a 30-year schedule with payments of principal and interest beginning immediately; (v) the loan can be prepaid without penalty; and (vi) the loan will no longer be fully guaranteed by the Operating Partnership, but the Operating Partnership has guaranteed certain standard “bad boy” carveouts. Pursuant to the swap agreement: (i) the Loan Rate is swapped for a fixed interest rate of 5.237%; (ii) notional amounts of the swap approximate the declining balance of the loan; and (iii) we are responsible for any potential termination fees associated with early termination of the swap agreement. We used a portion of the proceeds to repay in full the existing Note B to the mortgage loan on our Hyatt Centric Arlington hotel and to pay closing costs associated with the amendment, and will use the balance of the proceeds for general corporate purposes.

Portfolio Update

At the Company’s hotel in Tampa, Florida, renovations are underway for an estimated $11.0 million renovation project in anticipation of a planned conversion in June 2019 from the Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore to Hotel Alba, which we expect to become a member of the Tapestry Collection by Hilton. As of June 30, 2018, we incurred costs totaling approximately $3.0 million toward this renovation.

Subsequent to the balance sheet date, on July 2, 2018 the Company purchased a portion of the parking lot located adjacent to the DoubleTree by Hilton Raleigh Brownstone-University hotel for $3.5 million, that the Company had previously leased.

2018 Updated Outlook

The Company is updating its previously issued guidance for 2018, accounting for current and expected performance within its portfolio, taking into account market conditions, the impact of renovations at the Company’s hotels in Wilmington and Tampa, the issuance of the 7.25% unsecured notes in February 2018, the acquisition of the Hyatt Centric Arlington hotel, the acquisition of the parking lot adjacent to the hotel in Raleigh, the refinance of the hotel in Raleigh and the amended loan on the hotel in Philadelphia. The updated guidance is predicated on estimates of occupancy and ADR that are consistent with the most recent 2018 calendar year forecasts by STR for the market segments in which the Company operates.

The table below reflects the Company’s prior and revised projections, within a range, of various financial measures for 2018, in thousands of dollars, except per share and RevPAR data:

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company considers the non-GAAP measures of FFO (including FFO per share), EBITDA and hotel EBITDA to be key supplemental measures of the Company’s performance and could be considered along with, not alternatives to, net income (loss) as a measure of the Company’s performance. These measures do not represent cash generated from operating activities determined by generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) or amounts available for the Company’s discretionary use and should not be considered alternative measures of net income, cash flows from operations or any other operating performance measure prescribed by GAAP.

FFO

Industry analysts and investors use Funds from Operations (“FFO”), as a supplemental operating performance measure of an equity REIT. FFO is calculated in accordance with the definition adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”). FFO, as defined by NAREIT, represents net income or loss determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding extraordinary items as defined under GAAP and gains or losses from sales of previously depreciated operating real estate assets, plus certain non-cash items such as real estate asset depreciation and amortization, and after adjustment for any noncontrolling interest from unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP 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, many investors and analysts have considered the presentation of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by itself.

The Company considers FFO to be a useful measure of adjusted net income (loss) for reviewing comparative operating and financial performance because we believe FFO is most directly comparable to net income (loss), which remains the primary measure of performance, because by excluding gains or losses related to sales of previously depreciated operating real estate assets and excluding real estate asset depreciation and amortization, FFO assists in comparing the operating performance of a company’s real estate between periods or as compared to different companies. Although FFO is intended to be a REIT industry standard, other companies may not calculate FFO in the same manner as we do, and investors should not assume that FFO as reported by us is comparable to FFO as reported by other REITs.

Adjusted FFO

The Company presents adjusted FFO, including adjusted FFO per share and unit, which adjusts for certain additional items including changes in deferred income taxes, any unrealized gain (loss) on hedging instruments or warrant derivative, loan impairment losses, losses on early extinguishment of debt, aborted offering costs, loan modification fees, franchise termination costs, costs associated with the departure of executive officers, litigation settlement, over-assessed real estate taxes on appeal, change in control gains or losses and acquisition transaction costs. We exclude these items as we believe it allows for meaningful comparisons between periods and among other REITs and is more indicative than FFO of the on-going performance of our business and assets. Our calculation of Adjusted FFO may be different from similar measures calculated by other REITs.

EBITDA

The Company believes that excluding the effect of non-operating expenses and non-cash charges, and the portion of those items related to unconsolidated entities, all of which are also based on historical cost accounting and may be of limited significance in evaluating current performance, can help eliminate the accounting effects of depreciation and financing decisions and facilitate comparisons of core operating profitability between periods and between REITs, even though EBITDA also does not represent an amount that accrued directly to shareholders.

Hotel EBITDA

The Company defines Hotel EBITDA as net income or loss excluding: (1) interest expense, (2) interest income, (3) income tax provision or benefit, (4) equity in the income or loss of equity investees, (5) unrealized gains and losses on derivative instruments not included in other comprehensive income, (6) gains and losses on disposal of assets, (7) realized gains and losses on investments, (8) impairment of long-lived assets or investments, (9) loss on early debt extinguishment, (10) gains or losses on change in control, (11) corporate general and administrative expense, (12) depreciation and amortization, (13) gains and losses on involuntary conversions of assets, (14) distributions to preferred stockholders and (15) other operating revenue not related to our wholly-owned portfolio. We believe this provides a more complete understanding of the operating results over which our wholly-owned hotels and its operators have direct control. We believe Hotel EBITDA provides investors with supplemental information on the on-going operational performance of our hotels and the effectiveness of third-party management companies operating our business on a property-level basis. The Company’s calculation of hotel EBITDA may be different from similar measures calculated by other REITs.
