Barnello, President and Chief Executive Officer of LaSalle Hotel Properties. “We are proud of each of these accomplishments; and with hotel EBITDA growing at a rate three times the magnitude of RevPAR in 2015, we were able to again demonstrate the efficiency of our operating model and drive another year of strong cash flow growth for the Company.”

Investment Activity

  • Hotel Acquisitions: The Company invested $446.3 million to acquire the following two fee simple assets:
    • Park Central San Francisco for $350.0 million on January 23, 2015; and
    • The Marker Waterfront Resort in Key West, FL for $96.3 million on March 16, 2015.
  • New Mezzanine Loan: On July 20, 2015, the Company provided an $80.0 million junior mezzanine loan (the “Mezzanine Loan”) secured by equity interests in two hotels: Shutters on the Beach and Casa Del Mar, in Santa Monica, CA. The interest only Mezzanine Loan bears interest at a variable rate equal to LIBOR plus 775 basis points, which translates to 8.2 percent as of February 17, 2016. The Mezzanine Loan has an initial two-year term, with five one-year extension options. The Mezzanine Loan is subordinate to a $235.0 million first mortgage loan and a $90.0 million senior mezzanine loan secured by the properties that both also have an initial two-year term, with five one-year extension options.
  • Capital Investments: The Company invested $142.0 million of capital in its hotels throughout the year, completing renovations at Sofitel Washington, DC Lafayette Square, The Grafton on Sunset in West Hollywood, Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter, Villa Florence in San Francisco, Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor, Westin Philadelphia and the first phase of the rooms renovation at Westin Michigan Avenue in Chicago. During the year, the Company also created 18 new rooms, including 14 rooms in San Francisco and four rooms in San Diego, which is a significant value enhancement to those hotels. The average development cost per room was approximately $200,000, which is a considerable discount to replacement cost, particularly in high barrier to entry West Coast markets.

    During the quarter, the Company invested $49.9 million of capital in its hotels. The Company commenced renovations at the Chaminade Resort and Conference Center in Santa Cruz, Hotel Solamar in San Diego, Hotel Amarano Burbank, Hotel Palomar, Washington, DC, The Liberty Hotel in Boston, Lansdowne Resort in Lansdowne, VA, and the second phase of the guestrooms at Westin Michigan Avenue in Chicago. The Company also closed Hotel Helix in Washington, DC on October 16, 2015, and plans to reopen the hotel in March 2016 as the Mason & Rook Hotel, after a complete renovation of the guestrooms, public spaces, and meeting space.

    During 2016, the Company anticipates investing between $130.0 million and $170.0 million of capital in its hotels.

Balance Sheet and Capital Markets Activities

As of December 31, 2015, the Company had total outstanding debt of $1.4 billion, including $21.0 million outstanding on its senior unsecured credit facility. Total net debt to trailing 12 month Corporate EBITDA (as defined in the Company’s senior unsecured credit facility) was 3.6 times as of December 31, 2015 and its fixed charge coverage ratio was 5.0 times. For the fourth quarter, the Company’s weighted average interest rate was 3.1 percent.

  • Mortgage Refinancing: On July 20, 2015, the Company closed on a new $225.0 million loan secured by the Westin Copley Place. The interest rate will range from LIBOR plus 175 basis points to LIBOR plus 200 basis points, depending on Westin Copley Place’s net cash flow (as defined in the loan agreement). Due to strong net cash flow at Westin Copley Place during 2015, the interest rate dropped from LIBOR plus 200 basis points on July 20, 2015, to LIBOR plus 175 basis points as of December 31, 2015. Including three extension options, the loan matures in January 2021, pursuant to certain terms and conditions.
  • Term Loan: On November 5, 2015, the Company closed on a new $555.0 million senior unsecured term loan, which matures in January 2021. The new term loan was swapped to an average all-in fixed interest rate of 2.95 percent. At closing, the Company concurrently paid off its $177.5 million senior unsecured term loan. The Company used the remaining net proceeds to temporarily pay off the majority of the balance on its $750.0 million senior unsecured credit facility. In the first quarter of 2016, the Company ultimately used $286.2 million of the remaining net proceeds from the new term loan to repay the mortgages on Westin Michigan Avenue, Indianapolis Marriott Downtown, and The Roger. For more details on the three mortgage repayments, refer to the Subsequent Events section of this press release.
  • Share Repurchase: During the third quarter, the Company acquired 184,742 common shares through its share repurchase program at a cost of $5.7 million. The Company has not acquired any additional common shares since the third quarter of 2015. The Company has $69.8 million of capacity remaining in its share repurchase program.

Dividend

On December 15, 2015, the Company declared a fourth quarter 2015 dividend of $0.45 per common share of beneficial interest. The dividend represents an annual run rate of $1.80 per share and a 7.5 percent yield based on the closing share price on February 17, 2016.

Subsequent Events

On February 11, 2016, the Company prepaid the mortgage on The Roger, which had a remaining balance of $58.8 million. The Company did not incur any prepayment penalties associated with these three mortgages. Pro forma for paying off the three mortgages in 2016, the Company has $307.2 million outstanding on its senior unsecured credit facility, which translates to $465.2 million of availability on its credit facilities. Pro forma for paying off the mortgages, the Company’s current weighted average interest rate is 2.5 percent.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

FFO, EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA

The Company considers the non-GAAP measures of FFO (including FFO per share/unit), EBITDA and hotel EBITDA to be key supplemental measures of the Company's performance and should be considered along with, but not as alternatives to, net income or loss as a measure of the Company's operating performance. 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 real estate industry investors consider FFO, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA to be helpful in evaluating a real estate company's operations.

The White Paper on FFO approved by NAREIT in April 2002, as revised in 2011, defines FFO as net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains or losses from sales of properties and items classified by GAAP as extraordinary, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization and impairment writedowns, and after comparable adjustments for the Company's portion of these items related to unconsolidated entities and joint ventures. The Company computes FFO consistent with 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 current NAREIT definition differently than the Company.

With respect to FFO, the Company believes that excluding the effect of extraordinary items, real estate-related depreciation and amortization and impairments, and the portion of these items related to unconsolidated entities, all of which are based on historical cost accounting and which may be of limited significance in evaluating current performance, can facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs, even though FFO does not represent an amount that accrues directly to common shareholders. However, FFO may not be helpful when comparing the Company to non-REITs.

With respect to EBITDA, the Company believes that excluding the effect of non-operating expenses and non-cash charges, and the portion of these 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 amortization, 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 accrues directly to common shareholders.

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

FFO, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA do not represent cash generated from operating activities as determined by GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income or loss, cash flows from operations or any other operating performance measure prescribed by GAAP. FFO, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA are not measures of the Company's liquidity, nor are FFO, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA indicative of funds available to fund the Company's cash needs, including its ability to make cash distributions. These measurements do not reflect cash expenditures for long-term assets and other items that have been and will be incurred. FFO, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA may include funds that may not be available for management's discretionary use due to functional requirements to conserve funds for capital expenditures, property acquisitions, and other commitments and uncertainties. To compensate for this, management considers the impact of these excluded items to the extent they are material to operating decisions or the evaluation of the Company's operating performance.

Adjusted FFO and Adjusted EBITDA

The Company presents adjusted FFO (including adjusted FFO per share/unit) and adjusted EBITDA, which adjusts for certain additional items including gains on sale of property and impairment losses (to the extent included in EBITDA), acquisition transaction costs, costs associated with the departure of executive officers, costs associated with the recognition of issuance costs related to the calling of preferred shares and certain other items. The Company excludes these items as it believes it allows for meaningful comparisons with other REITs and between periods and is more indicative of the ongoing performance of its assets. As with FFO, EBITDA, and hotel EBITDA, the Company’s calculation of adjusted FFO and adjusted EBITDA may be different from similar adjusted measures calculated by other REITs.

Adjustments for Union Disruption at PCNY/WH

In addition, the Company has presented adjusted FFO (including adjusted FFO per share/unit), adjusted EBITDA and hotel EBITDA excluding the impact of the union disruption at the PCNY/WH in August, September, and October 2015, which is a non-recurring item that the Company does not believe is reasonably likely to recur within two years. The Company estimates the negative impact of the disruption based on the PCNY/WH actual results for August, September, and October 2015 versus their forecast for that period as of August 1, 2015.
