  • ADR and Occupancy from comparable company operated hotels improved 6.1 percent and 290 bps year over year, respectively. Red Lion franchised hotels ADR and Occupancy improved 6.2 percent and 360 bps year over year, respectively.

  • As part of a joint venture, acquired a hotel adjacent to the Atlanta International Airport and secured financing to complete a comprehensive renovation of the property, which is expected to open in the first quarter of 2016 as the Red Lion Hotel Atlanta International Airport.

Year-to-Date Highlights and Subsequent Event:

  • Systemwide RevPAR increased 12.3 percent, driven by a 5.3 percent increase in ADR and a 420 bps increase in Occupancy.
  • Subsequent to quarter-end, as part of a joint venture, closed on the acquisition of The Quincy hotel in downtown Washington D.C. and immediately began operations as Hotel RL Washington D.C.

Comparable operating results (as disclosed in the table by the same title) for the periods included in this release reflect the operating results of hotels that were in the system for at least one full calendar year as of the end of the current period other than hotels for which comparable results were not available. Throughout this release the Company refers to certain non-GAAP financial measures, such as EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. Please refer to the tables attached to this release for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measure determined in accordance with GAAP.

“We have now generated three consecutive quarters of double digit comparable systemwide RevPAR growth in 2015, outpacing the industry and continuing to demonstrate the appreciable impact of our RevPak guest management system to both our company operated and franchised hotels,” said RLHC President & CEO Greg Mount.

“These results, driven primarily by the effectiveness of our RevPak guest management system and digital marketing and ecommerce initiatives, have clearly supported the growth of our core brands. We have already achieved our goal of executing 20-30 agreements in 2015, with 24 properties signed year-to-date and counting.” Mount continued, “We achieved several important milestones on our path to national expansion, opening our first franchise hotel in New York City, signing our first Hotel RL franchise with Hotel RL St. Louis and completing two joint venture acquisitions with Hotel RL Washington D.C. and the future Red Lion Hotel Atlanta International Airport. These recent achievements have significantly expanded our presence on the East Coast and further increased awareness of our brands nationally.”

Third Quarter 2015 Results
Comparable revenue from company operated hotels was $35.9 million, an increase of $2.9 million or 8.9 percent compared with the same period a year ago, primarily due to an increase in RevPAR. Comparable company operated RevPAR increased 10.0 percent to $89.78 driven by a 6.1 percent increase in ADR to $107.31 and a 290 basis point increase in occupancy. Systemwide Red Lion branded RevPAR increased 10.9 percent and the GuestHouse and Settle Inn properties generated 5.2 percent of RevPAR improvement. Comparable company operated hotel direct operating margin increased 190 basis points to 34.0 percent from 32.1 percent, mainly due the increase in RevPAR.

Franchise revenue was $3.8 million, an increase of 83.9 percent or $1.7 million compared with the same period a year ago, reflecting the growth in the franchise network. As a result, net segment profits increased $0.4 million over the prior year.

Entertainment revenue decreased by $1.5 million mainly due to a change in the show line-up versus the prior year. Net segment profits were essentially flat compared with the same period a year ago.

Net income attributable to RLHC was $0.8 million, or $0.04 per share, compared with net income of $5.1 million, or $0.26 per share, in the same period a year ago. The decrease is primarily due to net income attributable to noncontrolling interest, increased interest expense and increased general and administrative expenses. After adjusting for special items, adjusted net income per share in 2015 was $0.17 compared with $0.22 per share in 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA of $8.7 million was in line with the prior year period, supported by strong hotel performance.

Liquidity and Balance Sheet
At September 30, 2015, the Company had $97.1 million in cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments and had consolidated outstanding debt of $102.3 million.

Capital expenditures for the first nine months totaled $10.7 million, primarily utilized for renovations of Hotel RL Baltimore Inner Harbor and the twelve RL Venture properties.

Lodging Development Update
Year-to-date, the Company executed 24 new franchise and management agreements.

2015 Outlook
Based on the outlook for the markets in which the Company operates and on information currently available, the Company affirms the following financial guidance for 2015, excluding the impact of the acquisition of the GuestHouse International and Settle Inn brands:

  • 2015 RevPAR for comparable company operated hotels is expected to increase 7 to 9 percent over 2014
  • Capital expenditures, including those associated with the 12 hotel joint venture portfolio and its loan, are expected to be between $25 and $30 million
  • The Company expects to sign between 20 and 30 hotels in the Red Lion brands in 2015

Comparable Operations and Data From Continuing Operations
(unaudited)
($ in thousands)
Certain operating results for the periods included in this report are shown on a comparable hotel basis. Comparable hotels are defined as properties that were operated by the Company for at least one full calendar year as of the end of the current period. Comparable results exclude eight hotels which were sold or closed, one hotel which was converted from owned to managed, one hotel which was converted from franchised to managed, and one hotel which began operations in August 2015.
We utilize these comparable measures because management finds them a useful tool to perform more meaningful comparisons of past, present and future operating results and as a means to evaluate the results of core, ongoing operations. We believe they are a complement to reported operating results. Comparable operating results are not intended to represent reported operating results defined by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), and such information should not be considered as an alternative to reported information or any other measure of performance prescribed by GAAP.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

($ in thousands)
EBITDA is defined as net income (loss), before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We believe it is a useful financial performance measure due to the significance of our long-lived assets and level of indebtedness.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) are additional measures of financial performance. We believe that the inclusion or exclusion of certain special items, such as gains and losses on asset dispositions and impairments, is necessary to provide the most accurate measure of core operating results and as a means to evaluate comparative results.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) are commonly used measures of performance in the industry. We utilize these measures because management finds them a useful tool to perform more meaningful comparisons of past, present and future operating results and as a means to evaluate the results of core, ongoing operations. We believe they are a complement to reported operating results. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) are not intended to represent net income (loss) defined by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), and such information should not be considered as an alternative to reported information or any other measure of performance prescribed by GAAP. In addition, other companies in our industry may calculate EBITDA and in particular Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) differently than we do or may not calculate them at all, limiting the usefulness of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) as comparative measures.
