Supertel Hospitality Reports 2014 First Quarter Results

NORFOLK, NE -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- Supertel Hospitality, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPPR), a real estate investment trust (REIT), today announced its results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

2014 First Quarter Key Events

  • Increased occupancy at the same store hotels by 0.6 percent from the prior year.
  • Reduced net loss attributable to common shareholders by $3.5 million to $(1.4) million for the first quarter of 2014 compared to the same period in 2013.
  • Sold the 55-room Super 8 hotel in Shawano, Wisconsin in the first quarter and two hotels following the close of the quarter.
  • Reported revenues from continuing operations of $11.8 million for the 2014 first quarter, essentially unchanged compared to the same period in 2013.
  • Recorded a 1.3 percent decline in same store revenue per available room (RevPAR) to $31.19 partially due to weakness of the Washington DC market.

First Quarter Operating and Financial Results

First quarter 2014 revenues from continuing operations were $11.8 million, essentially unchanged compared to the same year-ago period. The effects of rebranding at two of the four reflagged hotels and the performance of four hotels hampered by softness in the Washington DC market continue to impact revenue.

Supertel had a 2014 first quarter net loss attributable to common shareholders of $(1.4) million, or $(0.47) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(4.9) million or $(1.70) per diluted share, a $3.5 million improvement for the same 2013 period.

Funds from operations (FFO) was $0.2 million for the 2014 first quarter, compared to $(2.4) million in the same 2013 period. Adjusted funds from operations (AFFO), which is FFO adjusted to exclude gains and losses on derivative liabilities, acquisition and termination expense, and terminated equity transactions expense, in the 2014 first quarter was $(1.9) million, compared to $(2.0) million in the same 2013 period.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) were $2.5 million for the 2014 first quarter, compared to a net loss of $(0.4) million in the same year-ago period. Adjusted EBITDA, which is EBITDA before noncontrolling interest, net gain/loss on disposition of assets, impairment, preferred stock dividends, unrealized gain/loss on derivatives, acquisition and termination expense and terminated equity transactions expense, was $1.1 million, down from $1.3 million for the 2013 first quarter.

In the first quarter 2014, the 50-hotel same store portfolio had a 0.6 percent improvement in occupancy to 52.9 percent, offset by a decline in revenue per available room (RevPAR) of 1.3 percent to $31.19, and a 1.9 percent decline in average daily rate (ADR) to $58.94, compared to the 2013 first quarter. The results were impacted by several factors including rebranding at four core hotels. While two of four properties which were rebranded in 2013 have stabilized and are beginning to show improvement, the other two continue to adjust operations and costs to align with the lower daily rates for the new brands. Supertel's four hotels in the Washington DC market were also impacted by the general weakness in this market. Offsetting improvements occurred at six hotels which had significant capital investments during 2012 and 2013.

The hotel industry is seasonal in nature. Generally, occupancy rates, revenues and operating results for hotels operating in the geographic areas in which Supertel operates are greater in the second and third quarters of the calendar year than in the first and fourth quarters, with the exception of Supertel's hotel located in Florida, which experiences peak demand in the first and fourth quarters of the year.

Disposition Program

In the 2014 first quarter the company sold the 55-room Super 8 in Shawano, Wisconsin for $1.1 million. Proceeds were used to reduce debt and lower overall debt service.

Following the close of the 2014 first quarter, the company sold the 65-room Baymont Inn and Suites in Brooks, Kentucky for $1.7 million and the 101-room Super 8 hotel in Omaha, West Dodge, Nebraska for $1.6 million. Proceeds were used to retire debt.

As of March 31, 2014, the company is marketing 18 hotels for sale and expects to generate approximately $40.5 million in gross proceeds to be used primarily to pay off the underlying loans and provide capital to reinvest in existing core properties.

Capital Reinvestment

The company invested $0.4 million in capital improvements in the 2014 first quarter to upgrade its properties and maintain brand standards. During 2014 the company expects to invest approximately $6.0 million in its hotels for capital improvements and renovations.

Balance Sheet

As of March 31, 2014, Supertel had $91.0 million in outstanding debt on its continuing operations hotels with an average term of 2.5 years and weighted average annual interest rate of 6.3 percent.

Dividends

The company did not declare a dividend on common stock in the 2014 first quarter. The company's board of directors elected to suspend the payment of monthly dividends commencing December 31, 2013 on the outstanding shares of its 8.00% Series A Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock (NASDAQ: SPPRP), quarterly dividends on the outstanding shares of its 10.00% Series B Preferred Cumulative Stock (NASDAQ: SPPRO), and the quarterly dividends on the outstanding shares of its 6.25% Series C Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock to preserve capital and improve liquidity. The board of directors will continue to monitor the dividend policy.

Outlook 2014

"While our top line first quarter results were clearly hampered by franchisor driven reflagging, and the overall weakness in the greater DC market area where some of our largest properties are located, the plan to transform Supertel into a leaner and more agile hotel owner continues," Walters said. "Our debt levels continue to decrease, our operators are responding to our more active management style instituted by our new COO, and the outlook for the economy chain scale segment is positive as it has been since the recovery started in 2010."

FFO and Adjusted FFO ("AFFO") are non-GAAP financial measures. We consider FFO and AFFO to be market accepted measures of an equity REIT's operating performance, which are necessary, along with net earnings (loss), for an understanding of our operating results. FFO, as defined under the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) standards, consists of net income computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of real estate assets and impairment of real estate assets, plus depreciation and amortization. We believe our method of calculating FFO complies with the NAREIT definition. AFFO is FFO adjusted to exclude gains or losses on derivative liabilities, which are non-cash charges against income and which do not represent results from our core operations. AFFO also adds back acquisition and termination expense and terminated equity transaction. FFO and AFFO 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. FFO and AFFO should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of our liquidity, nor are they indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends or make distributions. All REITs do not calculate FFO and AFFO in the same manner; therefore, our calculation may not be the same as the calculation of FFO and AFFO for similar REITs.

Diluted FFO per share and diluted Adjusted FFO per share are computed after adjusting the numerator and denominator of the basic computation for the effects of any dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period. The Company's outstanding stock options and certain warrants to purchase common stock would be antidilutive and are not included in the dilution computation.

We use FFO and AFFO as performance measures to facilitate a periodic evaluation of our operating results relative to those of our peers. We consider FFO and AFFO to be useful additional measures of performance for an equity REIT because it facilitates an understanding of the operating performance of our properties without giving effect to real estate depreciation and amortization, which assume that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, we believe that FFO and AFFO provide a meaningful indication of our performance.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). We calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA by adding back to net earnings (loss) available to common shareholders certain non-operating expenses and non-cash charges which are based on historical cost accounting and we believe may be of limited significance in evaluating current performance. We believe these adjustments can help eliminate the accounting effects of depreciation and amortization and financing decisions and facilitate comparisons of core operating profitability between periods, even though EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA also do not represent an amount that accrues directly to common shareholders. In calculating Adjusted EBITDA, we add back noncontrolling interest, net (gain) loss on disposition of assets, preferred stock dividends, acquisition and termination expense and terminated equity transactions which are cash charges. We also add back impairment and unrealized gain or loss on derivatives, which are non-cash charges.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent cash generated from operating activities determined by GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, cash flow from operations or any other operating performance measure prescribed by GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of our liquidity, nor are they indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions. Neither do the measurements reflect cash expenditures for long-term assets and other items that have been and will be incurred. EBITDA and Adjusted 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 our operating performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Property Operating Income (POI) - Continuing and Discontinued Operations
This presentation includes non-GAAP financial measures, and should not be considered as an alternative to loss from continuing operations or loss from discontinued operations, net of tax. The company believes that the presentation of hotel property operating income (POI) is helpful to investors, and represents a more useful description of its core operations, as it better communicates the comparability of its hotels' operating results. Same store results for the quarter are for 50 hotels in continuing operations.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
Businesses are struggling to manage the information flow and interactions between all of these new devices and things jumping on their network, and the apps and IT systems they control. The data businesses gather is only helpful if they can do something with it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Witeck, Principal Technology Strategist at Citrix, will discuss how different the impact of IoT will be for large businesses, expanding how IoT will allow large organizations to make their legacy ap...
The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will look at the protocols that communicate data and the emerging data analy...
As ridesharing competitors and enhanced services increase, notable changes are occurring in the transportation model. Despite the cost-effective means and flexibility of ridesharing, both drivers and users will need to be aware of the connected environment and how it will impact the ridesharing experience.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance).

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...
Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
