Andrew M. Sims, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sotherly Hotels Inc., commented, “We posted solid quarterly results for the third quarter despite general headwinds in our region and negative market conditions in Houston and Miami. Year-to-date, we are pleased with the results given our relative peer group performance; however, Hurricane Matthew affected six of our hotels in early October, resulting in diminished results in a month that has historically been one of our strongest. Our outlook for the fourth quarter has been adjusted accordingly, which will require us to lower guidance for the year.”

Balance Sheet/Liquidity

At September 30, 2016, the Company had approximately $32.3 million of available cash and cash equivalents, of which approximately $5.9 million was reserved for real estate taxes, insurance, capital improvements and certain other expenses or otherwise restricted. The Company had approximately $295.1 million in outstanding debt at a weighted average interest rate of approximately 4.83%.

On August 23, 2016, the Company sold 1,610,000 shares of 8% Series B Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred stock, for net proceeds after all expenses of approximately $37.8 million, which it contributed to the Operating Partnership for an equivalent number of preferred units.

On September 30, 2016, Sotherly Hotels LP redeemed the entire $27.6 million aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 8% Senior Unsecured Notes.

Portfolio Update

At the Company’s hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, an estimated $7.0 million guestroom renovation is complete. On September 24, 2015, the hotel became The Georgian Terrace by Sotherly, the first signature property of our premier boutique collection.

At the Company’s hotel in Savannah, Georgia, renovations of the guestrooms and public spaces totaling an estimated $8.2 million are underway. As of September 30, 2016, the Company had incurred costs totaling approximately $3.9 million toward this renovation. Renovations are expected to be complete in August 2017.

On September 14, 2016, we entered into a Commercial Unit Purchase Agreement and a related addendum to purchase the commercial unit of the Hyde Resort & Residences, a condominium hotel under development in the Hollywood, Florida market, for a price of $4.25 million from 4111 South Ocean Drive, LLC. The purchase agreement and addendum also includes the Company’s purchase of certain inventories consistent with the management and operation of the hotel and the related condominium association for an additional price of approximately $0.47 million. In connection with the closing, the Company intends to enter into a lease agreement for the 400-space parking garage and meeting rooms associated with the hotel, a management agreement relating to the operation and management of the hotel condominium association, and a pre-opening services agreement whereby the Seller will pay the Company a fee of $0.75 million for certain pre-opening preparations. The closing of the transaction is subject to various closing conditions.

Subsequent Events

On October 6, 2016, we entered into an agreement to sell the Crowne Plaza Hampton Marina to Marina Hotel, LLC for a price of $5.65 million. The Company may use the proceeds from the sale of the hotel to repay the existing first mortgage on the hotel and for general corporate purposes. The closing of the sale, which may occur in December 2016, is subject to various customary closing conditions.

On October 12, 2016, the Company entered into a loan agreement to secure a $20.5 million mortgage on The Whitehall with International Bank of Commerce. Pursuant to the loan documents, the loan: provides initial proceeds of $15.0 million, with an additional $5.5 million available upon the satisfaction of certain conditions, has a term of five years, bears a floating interest rate of the 30-day LIBOR plus 3.5%, subject to a floor rate of 4.0%, amortizes on an 18-year schedule after a 2-year interest only period, is subject to prepayment fees, and is guaranteed by Sotherly Hotels LP.

On November 3, 2016, the Company entered into a loan agreement to refinance the mortgage on the Sheraton Louisville Riverside with Symetra Life Insurance Company. Pursuant to the loan documents, the loan: provides proceeds of $12.0 million, has a maturity date of December 1, 2026, bears a fixed interest rate of 4.27% for the first 5 years of the loan with an option for the lender to reset that rate after 5 years, amortizes on a 25-year schedule, is subject to prepayment fees, and is guaranteed by Sotherly Hotels LP at 50% of the unpaid principal balance, interest, and other amounts owed.

On November 3, 2016, the Company entered into a loan agreement to modify and extend the $2.6 million mortgage on the Crowne Plaza Hampton Marina with TowneBank. Pursuant to the amended loan documents, the loan: continues to bear a fixed interest rate of 5.00%, has a maturity date of November 1, 2019, and beginning on December 1, 2016 requires monthly principal payments of $15,367 plus accrued unpaid interest.

2016 Outlook

The Company is updating its previously issued guidance for 2016, accounting for current and expected performance within its portfolio, taking into account (i) the impacts of hurricane Matthew, which affected our properties in Hampton, Virginia; Wilmington, North Carolina; Savannah, Georgia; and Jacksonville, Florida, and (ii) continued market weakness in Houston, Texas where the Company’s hotel was repositioned. The guidance is predicated on estimates of occupancy and ADR that are consistent with the most recent 2016 calendar year forecasts by Smith Travel Research for the market segments in which the Company operates.

The table below reflects the Company’s projections, within a range, of various financial measures for 2016, in thousands of dollars, except per share and RevPAR data:

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company considers the non-GAAP measures of FFO (including FFO per share), EBITDA and hotel EBITDA to be key supplemental measures of the Company’s performance and could be considered along with, not alternatives to, net income (loss) as a measure of the Company’s performance. These measures do not represent cash generated from operating activities determined by generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) or amounts available for the Company’s discretionary use and should not be considered alternative measures of net income, cash flows from operations or any other operating performance measure prescribed by GAAP.

FFO

Industry analysts and investors use Funds from Operations (“FFO”), as a supplemental operating performance measure of an equity REIT. FFO is calculated in accordance with the definition adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”). FFO, as defined by NAREIT, represents net income or loss determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding extraordinary items as defined under GAAP and gains or losses from sales of previously depreciated operating real estate assets, plus certain non-cash items such as real estate asset depreciation and amortization, and after adjustment for any noncontrolling interest from unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP 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, many investors and analysts have considered the presentation of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by itself.

The Company considers FFO to be a useful measure of adjusted net income (loss) for reviewing comparative operating and financial performance because we believe FFO is most directly comparable to net income (loss), which remains the primary measure of performance, because by excluding gains or losses related to sales of previously depreciated operating real estate assets and excluding real estate asset depreciation and amortization, FFO assists in comparing the operating performance of a company’s real estate between periods or as compared to different companies. Although FFO is intended to be a REIT industry standard, other companies may not calculate FFO in the same manner as we do, and investors should not assume that FFO as reported by us is comparable to FFO as reported by other REITs.

EBITDA

The Company believes that excluding the effect of non-operating expenses and non-cash charges, and the portion of those 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 financing decisions and facilitate comparisons of core operating profitability between periods and between REITs, even though EBITDA also does not represent an amount that accrued directly to shareholders.

Hotel EBITDA

The Company defines hotel EBITDA as net income or loss excluding: (1) interest expense, (2) interest income, (3) income tax provision or benefit, (4) equity in the income or loss of equity investees, (5) unrealized gains and losses on derivative instruments not included in other comprehensive income, (6) gains and losses on disposal of assets, (7) realized gains and losses on investments, (8) impairment of long-lived assets or investments, (9) loss on early debt extinguishment, (10) gains or losses on change in control, (11) corporate general and administrative expense, (12) depreciation and amortization, (13) gains and losses on involuntary conversions of assets, (14) loan modification fees and (15) other operating revenue not related to the Company’s wholly-owned portfolio. We believe this provides a more complete understanding of the operating results over which the Company’s wholly-owned hotels and its operators have direct control. We believe hotel EBITDA provides investors with supplemental information on the on-going operational performance of the Company’s hotels and the effectiveness of third-party management companies operating the Company’s business on a property-level basis. The Company’s calculation of hotel EBITDA may be different from similar measures calculated by other REITs.

Adjusted FFO and Adjusted EBITDA

The Company presents adjusted FFO, including adjusted FFO per share and unit, and adjusted EBITDA, which adjusts for certain additional items including changes in deferred income taxes, any unrealized gain (loss) on its hedging instruments or warrant derivative, loan impairment losses, losses on early extinguishment of debt, aborted offering costs, franchise termination costs, loan modification fees, costs associated with the departure of executive officers, litigation settlement, over-assessed real estate taxes on appeal, change in control gains or losses and acquisition transaction costs. The Company excludes these items as it believes it allows for meaningful comparisons between periods and among other REITs and is more indicative of the on-going performance of its business and assets. The Company’s calculation of adjusted FFO and adjusted EBITDA may be different from similar measures calculated by other REITs.
