Andrew M. Sims, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sotherly Hotels Inc., commented, “We experienced a slower than expected second quarter as the impact from three hotel renovations and flat market conditions impaired our performance. After a strong first quarter, our year-to-date performance for the first half of 2017 is on plan and consistent with our guidance.”

Balance Sheet/Liquidity
At June 30, 2017, the Company had approximately $39.1 million of available cash and cash equivalents, of which approximately $4.6 million was reserved for real estate taxes, insurance, capital improvements and certain other expenses or otherwise restricted. The Company had approximately $321.7 million in outstanding debt at a weighted average interest rate of approximately 4.79%.

Portfolio Update
On June 1, 2017, we entered into an agreement to purchase the commercial unit of the planned Hyde Beach House Resort & Residences, a condominium hotel under development in Hollywood, Florida, for a price of $5.10 million from 4000 South Ocean Property Owner, LLLP. In connection with the agreement, we also entered into a pre-opening services agreement whereby the seller has agreed to pay the Company $0.75 million in connection with certain pre-opening activities to be undertaken prior to the closing. The Company has agreed to purchase inventories at closing consistent with the management and operation of the hotel and the related condominium association for an additional amount and has further agreed to enter into a lease agreement for the parking garage and poolside cabanas associated with the hotel; and to enter into a management agreement relating to the operation and management of the hotel’s condominium association. The Company anticipates that the closing of the transaction under the agreement and the execution of related agreements will take place in the second quarter of 2019, once construction of the hotel has been substantially completed. The closing of the transaction is subject to various closing conditions as described in the purchase agreement.

At the Company’s hotel in Wilmington, North Carolina, renovations of the guestrooms and public spaces totaling an estimated $8.5 million are underway. As of June 30, 2017, the Company had incurred costs totaling approximately $4.0 million toward this renovation. Renovations are expected to be complete in March 2018.

At the Company’s hotel in Savannah, Georgia, renovations of the guestrooms and public spaces totaling an estimated $9.4 million are nearing completion. As of June 30, 2017, the Company had incurred costs totaling approximately $8.5 million toward this renovation. Renovations are expected to be complete in August 2017.

On July 31, 2017, the Company rebranded the Hilton Savannah DeSoto to The DeSoto.

At the Company’s hotel in Hollywood, Florida the Company previously announced that it has entered into a 10-year franchise agreement with Hilton Worldwide to rebrand its Hollywood, Florida hotel as the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hollywood Beach. The Company is currently making renovations of the guestrooms and public spaces totaling an estimated $7.0 million. As of June 30, 2017, the Company had incurred costs totaling approximately $4.0 million toward this renovation. The conversion is expected to take place on or before October 31, 2017.

2017 Outlook
The Company is updating its previously issued guidance for 2017, accounting for current and expected performance within its portfolio, taking into account market conditions, impact of renovations at the Company's hotels in Savannah, Wilmington, and Hollywood, refinance of the DoubleTree by Hilton Jacksonville Riverfront, and ramp-up at the Hyde Resort & Residences. The guidance is predicated on estimates of occupancy and ADR that are consistent with the most recent 2017 calendar year forecasts by Smith Travel Research for the market segments in which the Company operates.

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.

Adjusted FFO
The Company presents adjusted FFO, including adjusted FFO per share and unit, which adjusts for certain additional items including changes in deferred income taxes, any unrealized gain (loss) on hedging instruments or warrant derivative, loan impairment losses, losses on early extinguishment of debt, aborted offering costs, loan modification fees, franchise termination costs, 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. We exclude these items as we believe it allows for meaningful comparisons between periods and among other REITs and is more indicative than FFO of the on-going performance of our business and assets. Our calculation of Adjusted FFO may be different from similar measures calculated 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 and (14) other operating revenue not related to our wholly-owned portfolio. We believe this provides a more complete understanding of the operating results over which our 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 our hotels and the effectiveness of third-party management companies operating our business on a property-level basis. The Company’s calculation of hotel EBITDA may be different from similar measures calculated by other REITs.
