Overview

“The year is off to a solid start at La Quinta. We continued to make progress on our key strategic initiatives to drive consistency in our product and in the delivery of an outstanding guest experience, as well as to drive increased engagement with the La Quinta brand. We strongly believe that these initiatives put La Quinta on a path to delivering long-term profitable growth for our shareholders. During the first quarter, we grew RevPAR, including a positive contribution from our properties in the STR-defined “oil tracts,” and continued to see significant improvement in our guest satisfaction scores, which led us to our third consecutive quarter of market share growth. We also added to a strong pipeline that will allow us to further expand our reach into new markets and take advantage of our unique growth opportunity in the industry. Our repositioning efforts are well underway and we are encouraged by the early positive results we are seeing. The investments we are making in our people, our product, and the overall guest experience are taking hold – and our guests are taking notice,” said Keith A. Cline, President and Chief Executive Officer of La Quinta.

Mr. Cline continued, “We announced in January that we are pursuing the separation of our real estate business from our franchise and management businesses, and we continue to make progress toward this opportunity while also keeping a keen focus on driving our key strategic initiatives. This potential separation, which will involve the spinning off of our owned real estate assets into a separate publicly-traded company, could allow us to take advantage of growth opportunities that naturally flow from each business model and may prove to be the best path to maximizing the return on our investments in capital and people.”

Financial Overview

For the first quarter of 2017, the Company grew system-wide comparable RevPAR 2.8 percent over the same period of 2016, driven by 4.7 percent growth in its franchise locations and 0.9 percent growth in its owned hotels. The Company’s 2017 first quarter performance was positively impacted by the performance in the STR-defined “oil tracts,” which added 24 basis points to system-wide comparable RevPAR results, as compared to the first quarter of 2016. The Company grew franchise and other fee-based revenue 8.0 percent in the first quarter of 2017 over the prior year period and reported its third consecutive quarter of market share growth, as evidenced by a 150 basis point improvement in RevPAR index over the prior year period.

For the first quarter of 2017, the Company reported net income of $1.6 million and adjusted net income of $4.5 million. Net Income per Share was $0.01 and Adjusted Earnings per Share was $0.04.

Total Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2017 was approximately $72 million, reflecting the sale of owned hotels in 2016 and early 2017 that contributed EBITDA of approximately $2.5 million in first quarter of 2016, which did not recur in 2017. Consistent with Company expectations, total Adjusted EBITDA was also impacted, in large part, by competitive wage pressures and increased labor needs in its owned hotel portfolio, as well as the elevated presence of third-party booking agents in its channel mix as compared to the prior year.

The Company’s system-wide portfolio, as of March 31, 2017, is located across 48 states in the U.S., as well as in Canada, Mexico, Honduras and Colombia. The portfolio includes:

Development

During the first quarter of 2017, the Company opened a total of nine franchised hotels (approximately 800 rooms). These nine openings, together with five terminations, led the Company to a net increase of four franchised hotels during the quarter. The elevated level of franchise terminations was in keeping with the Company’s overall strategy to drive consistency in its product. As of March 31, 2017 the Company had a pipeline of 249 franchised hotels totaling approximately 23,300 rooms, to be located in the United States, Mexico, Colombia, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Chile, and El Salvador.

Owned Hotel Portfolio

During the first quarter of 2017, the Company completed the sale of three owned hotels. The sale of these hotels generated $22.0 million in proceeds, net of selling costs. As of March 31, 2017, the Company had three hotels held for sale.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of March 31, 2017, the Company had approximately $1.7 billion of outstanding indebtedness with a weighted average interest rate of approximately 4.3%, including the impact of an interest rate swap. Total cash and cash equivalents was $161.5 million as of March 31, 2017.

Outlook

Based upon management’s current estimates, the Company is reaffirming its guidance for the full year 2017:

Guidance
RevPAR growth on a system-wide comparable hotel basis 0.00 percent to 2.00 percent
Adjusted EBITDA $320 million to $340 million

Please see the schedules to this press release for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to La Quinta Holdings’ stockholders. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the closest GAAP financial measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to impairment charges, gains or losses on sales of assets, and secondary offering expenses excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures. For the same reasons, the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could have a potentially unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on its future GAAP financial results.

RECONCILIATIONS

The tables below provide a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to Net (Loss) Income, a reconciliation of Adjusted Operating Income to Operating Income, a reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share to Net (Loss) Income and Earnings Per Share, and a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Adjusted Net Income with respect to the Company’s outlook. The Company believes this financial information provides meaningful supplemental information. The Company further believes the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share provides meaningful information because it excludes the impact of certain special items and/or certain items that are not expected to have an ongoing effect on its operations. This represents how management views the business and reviews its operating performance. It is also used by management when publicly providing the business outlook.

“EBITDA” and “Adjusted EBITDA.” Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) is a commonly used measure in many industries. The Company adjusts EBITDA when evaluating its performance because the Company believes that the adjustment for certain items, such as restructuring and acquisition transaction expenses, impairment charges related to long-lived assets, non-cash equity-based compensation, discontinued operations, and other items not indicative of ongoing operating performance, provides useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding its ongoing operating performance. The Company believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide useful information to investors about it and its financial condition and results of operations for the following reasons: (i) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are among the measures used by the Company’s management team to evaluate its operating performance and make day-to-day operating decisions; and (ii) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, lenders and other interested parties as a common performance measure to compare results or estimate valuations across companies in the Company’s industry.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized terms under GAAP, have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered either in isolation or as a substitute for net (loss) income, cash flow or other methods of analyzing the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company’s working capital needs;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the Company’s interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on its indebtedness;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the Company’s tax expense or the cash requirements to pay its taxes;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect historical cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the impact on earnings or changes resulting from matters that the Company considers not to be indicative of its future operations;
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
  • other companies in the Company’s industry may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

Because of these limitations, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as discretionary cash available to the Company to reinvest in the growth of its business or as measures of cash that will be available to the Company to meet its obligations.

“Adjusted EBITDA margin” represents the ratio of Adjusted EBITDA to total revenues.

“Adjusted operating (loss) income” represents the Company’s reported operating (loss) income, adjusted to exclude the impact of items not indicative of ongoing operating performance. Adjusted operating (loss) income is presented to provide additional perspective on underlying trends in the Company’s operating results.

“Adjusted Net Income” and “Adjusted Earnings Per Share” are not recognized terms under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net (loss) income, earnings per share, or other measures of financial performance or liquidity derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the Company’s definitions of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share are included to assist investors in performing meaningful comparisons of past, present and future operating results and as a means of highlighting the results of the Company’s ongoing operations in a comparable format.
