KEY POINTS

  • Operating income increased by $1.27 million or 9% during Q2-2014, compared to Q2-2013, comprised of a $2.81 million increase in operating from "new hotel properties" (eight hotels acquired during 2013 and two hotels acquired in Q2-2014) and a $1.54 million decrease in operating income from the "same property" portfolio. The decrease in operating income from the same property portfolio is mainly due to a decrease in occupancy levels and reflects the continuation of a lower demand hotel market in Fort McMurray as a result of what is expected to be a temporary slowdown in oil sands developments. Operating income increased by $3.76 million in Q2-2014, compared to Q1-2014.

  • Net income decreased by $0.8 million mainly due to an increase in depreciation and amortization charges of $2.62 million and an increase in interest expense (net) of $1.07 million, partially offset by a positive variance in the fair value gain/loss associated with financial instruments of $1.11 million.

  • FFO increased by $0.31 million and AFFO increased by $0.52 million during Q2-2014, compared to Q2-2013. On a basic per share basis, however, FFO decreased by $0.06 per share and AFFO decreased by $0.03 per share. The decline in per share FFO and AFFO was due, in part, to the time lag from Temple's equity issuance in December 2013 to the time the funds were fully invested in the acquisition of additional hotel properties. The equity issuance in December 2013 increased the outstanding shares by 9.9 million.

  • Cash flow from operating activities increased by $2.13 million during Q2-2014, compared to Q2-2013.

New Property Acquisitions and Capital Expenditures

During Q2-2014, Temple continued with its progressive growth strategy, acquiring two additional properties in western Canada. The Hotel Saskatchewan in Regina (224 guestrooms) and the Cortona Residence in Fort McMurray (57 suites) were both acquired effective April 1, 2014. The total combined acquisition cost of $58.8 million was financed with $40.3 million of first mortgage loan financing with the balance in cash. The Cortona Residence will be converted to an "extended stay" property at the expiry of the existing lease agreement in April 2018. In the interim, the investment in the property will provide a stable revenue source.

During Q2-2014, Temple's investment in capital expenditures amounted to $11 million, including $7.7 million of renovations at the Saskatoon Inn & Conference Centre, $0.8 million of renovations at the Prince George Hotel, Nova Scotia, $0.6 million of renovations at the Sheraton, Red Deer, and $0.6 million for the expansion of the Keg Restaurant at the Nomad Hotel & Suites, Fort McMurray.

Subsequent to June 30, 2014, Temple acquired four additional hotel properties comprised of two "Days Inn" properties in Thunder Bay, the TownPlace Suites by Marriott in Sudbury, Ontario and the Hilton Garden Inn Toronto Airport West.

The Days Inn Suites and the Days Inn North in Thunder Bay were acquired effective July 1, 2014. The hotels are approximately 3.4 kilometers apart and in close proximity to the Trans-Canada highway, Lakehead University and Confederation College. The total combined acquisition cost of $26.5 million was financed with $16 million of first mortgage loan financing and the balance in cash.

The TownPlace Suites by Marriott and the Hilton Garden Inn Toronto Airport West were acquired effective August 1, 2014. The total combined acquisition cost of the two hotels of $43.07 million was financed by the assumption of first mortgage loan debt of approximately $23 million and the balance in cash.

Financing and Liquidity

During Q2-2014, Temple obtained a new first mortgage loan of $25 million for the Merit Hotel and Suites and arranged a line of credit of $25 million, secured by a first mortgage charge against the Nomad Hotel. There were no draws on the line of credit during Q2-2014, however, $20 million was advanced in Q3 to fund the August 1, 2014 acquisitions.

As of June 30, 2014, Temple's total cash balance was $25.3 million and the working capital was $26.8 million. The cash balance primarily consists of working capital reserves and funds designated for capital expenditures.

As of June 30, 2014, total long-term debt was equal to 67% of the appraised value of the total property portfolio. The weighted average interest rate of the total long-term debt was 5.52% as of June 30, 2014, compared to 5.64% as of December 31, 2013 and 5.61% as of June 30, 2013. During Q3-2014, Temple will refinance or renew first mortgage debt in the total amount of $55 million. All of the maturing mortgage debt was renewed at interest rates below 5% and will serve to reduce the average cost of mortgage debt.

Outlook

Demand for hotel rooms is historically at peak levels during the summer months and the expectation is that Temple will achieve a marked improvement in RevPAR results during the third quarter of 2014, including a more substantial improvement in the RevPAR results for the same property portfolio. Incremental income will also be derived from the four new hotel acquisitions.

The four recently acquired hotels is a continuation of the strategy to increase Temple's asset base and further enhanced the geographic diversification of the total hotel portfolio.

For the next two years, Temple will continue to focus on the accretive capital expenditure programs with the objective of enhancing the overall quality and revenue-generating capacity of the hotel portfolio. Management is confident that Temple is creating a high quality, diversified hotel portfolio.

As of March 31, 2014, the "Acquisitions" portfolio comprises 42% of the total rooms. With the exception of the Acclaim Hotel, Calgary Airport North, the Holiday Inn Express, Sherwood Park and Cortona Residence in Fort McMurray, all of the hotels in the "Acquisitions" portfolio are located outside of Alberta.

During Q2-2014, total room revenue increased by $5.7 million or 20%, compared to Q2-2013, comprised of incremental revenue of $7.42 million from new hotel acquisitions, offset by a decrease of $1.72 million or 7.5% in "same property" revenue.  The Fort McMurray same property portfolio accounted for approximately 82% of the decrease in same property room revenue.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, room revenue increased by $12.3 million or 24%, compared to the six months ended June 30, 2013. The increase was comprised of a decrease of $1.52 million or 3% in "same property" revenue and incremental revenue of $13.82 million from new hotel acquisitions. The Fort McMurray same property portfolio accounted for approximately 90% of the decrease in same property room revenue.

As disclosed in the following chart, RevPAR for the same property portfolio was $109.98 during Q2-2014, compared to $118.94 during Q2-2013. RevPAR for new acquisitions was $94.76 in Q2-2014, compared to $88.27 in Q2-2013.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, RevPAR for the same property portfolio was $109.94, compared to $113.93 for the six months ended June 30, 2013. RevPAR for the portfolio of newly acquired properties was $85.26 during the first six months of 2014, compared to $83.40 during the first six months of 2013.

The decrease in RevPAR for the same property portfolio is mainly attributable to lower occupancy in the Fort McMurray same property portfolio

RevPAR results for the Fort McMurray same property portfolio for Q1-2014 were impacted by delays in major oil sand projects and increased competition from new work camps which served to reduce occupancy and limit rate increases for the Fort McMurray portfolio. The competitive market conditions continued into Q2-2014 and served to limit the extent of any improvement in RevPAR results.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, will discuss recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model f...
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
