Pebblebrook Hotel Trust

Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (NYSE: PEB)  today announced that it has closed on the sale of the 335-room, Hotel Palomar Washington, DC for $141.5 million. The sale closed on February 22, 2019.

The sale price of $141.5 million reflects a 14.9x EBITDA multiple and a 5.9% net operating income capitalization rate (after an assumed annual capital reserve of 4.0% of total hotel revenues) based on the hotel’s operating performance for 2018. When combined with the recently announced sale of The Liaison Capitol Hill, the aggregate sales proceeds of $252.5 million for these two sales reflect a 15.7x EBITDA multiple and a 5.5% net operating income capitalization rate based on the operating performance of the hotels in 2018.

Proceeds from the sale of Hotel Palomar Washington, DC will be utilized for general business purposes which may include reducing the Company’s outstanding debt. As a result of this completed sale, the Company estimates its total net debt to trailing 12-month corporate EBITDA will be approximately 4.7 times at the end of the first quarter 2019.

Reconciliation of Hotel Net Income to Hotel EBITDA and Hotel Net Operating Income

Hotel net income $4.3
 
Adjustment:
Depreciation and amortization 5.2
 
Hotel EBITDA $9.5  
 
Adjustment:
Capital reserve (1.1 )
 
Hotel Net Operating Income $8.4  
 

 

The Company has presented trailing twelve-month hotel EBITDA and trailing twelve-month hotel net operating income after capital reserves because it believes these measures provide investors and analysts with an understanding of the hotel-level operating performance. These non-GAAP measures do not represent amounts available for management’s discretionary use, because of needed capital replacement or expansion, debt service obligations or other commitments and uncertainties, nor are they indicative of funds available to fund the Company’s cash needs, including its ability to make distributions.

 

The Company’s presentation of the hotel’s trailing twelve-month EBITDA and trailing twelve-month net operating income after capital reserves should not be considered as an alternative to net income (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of the hotel’s financial performance. The table above is a reconciliation of the hotel’s trailing twelve-month EBITDA and net operating income after capital reserves calculations to net income in accordance with GAAP. Any differences are a result of rounding.
