Bruce D. Wardinski, Chairman and CEO of Playa Hotels & Resorts

(1) Comparable Net Package RevPAR removes the room nights out of service due to renovation and hurricane disruption from the available room nights.

  • In July, we closed on the acquisition of the land site for the new Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana and Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana – in the sought-after luxury development of Cap Cana, in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We broke ground and began development on the 750-room resort in August.

  • In September, we entered into a long-term agreement to manage the 184-room Sanctuary Resort in Cap Cana. This marks the first of what we believe will be a rapidly growing business segment for Playa in third party management. The management contract's term is 15 years with two automatic extensions of five years. Effective at the time of signing, Playa has full indefinite rights to the Sanctuary brand and is negotiating an option to acquire 30% of the equity interest in the resort upon its successful expansion and renovation.

Impact from Natural Disasters

The Company is providing a preliminary assessment of the financial impact of the storms and other travel disruptions to our markets during the third quarter of 2017.

  • Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos, Mexico: The resort remained operational during Tropical Storm Lidia with limited services. Minimal damage was sustained.
  • Dreams Punta Cana, Dominican Republic: The resort was impacted by both Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.
    - The resort was evacuated during Hurricane Irma but suffered no significant damage.
    - The resort was evacuated during Hurricane Maria and was impacted more heavily. The resort was closed from September 18th until October 7th. A property insurance claim including business interruption has been filed.

  • Dreams Palm Beach, Dominican Republic: The resort was impacted by both Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.
    - The resort remained open with limited services during Hurricane Irma and suffered no significant damage.
    - The resort was evacuated during Hurricane Maria and suffered some water, electrical, roof, equipment and landscaping damage. The resort resumed normal operations September 22nd, a few days after the Hurricane.
  • Dreams La Romana, Dominican Republic: The resort was impacted by both Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.
    - The resort remained open with limited services during Hurricane Irma and suffered no significant damage.
    - The resort provided shelter and took in guests evacuated from surrounding areas during Hurricane Maria. The property only sustained minimal landscaping damage.
  • Financial Impact: The recent natural disasters including Tropical Storm Lidia, Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria directly and indirectly impacted the operating results of our resorts. The Company’s estimate of the financial impact of the natural disasters, other travel disruptions to our markets and renovation disruptions is as much as $10.0 million to

$12.0 million lost EBITDA for FY 2017. The following estimates exclude any proceeds from business interruption insurance, as the timing of recognition of such proceeds is uncertain.

The following table sets forth information with respect to our Occupancy, Net Package ADR, Net Package RevPAR, Total Net Revenue, Resort EBITDA, Corporate Expenses, and Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended 2017 and 2016 for our portfolio:

Definitions of Non-U.S. GAAP Measures and Operating Statistics

Occupancy

“Occupancy” represents the total number of rooms sold for a period divided by the total number of rooms available during such period. Occupancy is a useful measure of the utilization of a resort’s total available capacity and can be used to gauge demand at a specific resort or group of properties for a period. Occupancy levels also enable us to optimize Net Package ADR by increasing or decreasing the stated rate for our all-inclusive packages as demand for a resort increases or decreases.

Net Package Average Daily Rate (“Net Package ADR”)

“Net Package ADR” represents total net package revenue for a period divided by the total number of rooms sold during such period. Net Package ADR trends and patterns provide useful information concerning the pricing environment and the nature of the guest base of our total portfolio or comparable portfolio, as applicable. Net Package ADR is a commonly used performance measure in the all-inclusive segment of the lodging industry, and is commonly used to assess the stated rates that guests are willing to pay through various distribution channels.

Net Package Revenue per Available Room (“Net Package RevPAR”)

"Net Package RevPAR" is the product of Net Package ADR (as defined above) and the average daily occupancy percentage. Net Package RevPAR does not reflect the impact of non-package revenue. Although Net Package RevPAR does not include this additional revenue, it generally is considered the key performance measure in the all-inclusive segment of the lodging industry to identify trend information with respect to net room revenue produced by our portfolio or comparable portfolio, as applicable, and to evaluate operating performance on a consolidated basis or a regional basis, as applicable.

Net Revenue, Net Package Revenue and Net Non-package Revenue

We derive net revenue from the sale of all-inclusive packages, which include room accommodations, food and beverage services and entertainment activities, net of compulsory tips paid to employees in Mexico and Jamaica. Government mandated compulsory tips in the Dominican Republic are not included in this adjustment, as they are already excluded from revenue. Net revenue is recognized when the rooms are occupied and/or the relevant services have been rendered. Advance deposits received from guests are deferred and included in trade and other payables until the rooms are occupied and/or the relevant services have been rendered, at which point the revenue is recognized. Food and beverage revenue not included in a guest’s all-inclusive package is recognized when the goods are consumed. Net revenue represents a key indicator to assess the overall performance of our business and analyze trends, such as consumer demand, brand preference and competition.

In analyzing our results, our management differentiates between Net Package Revenue and Net Non- package Revenue (as such terms are defined below). Guests at our resorts purchase packages at stated rates, which include room accommodations, food and beverage services and entertainment activities, in contrast to other lodging business models, which typically only include the room accommodations in the stated rate. The amenities at all-inclusive resorts typically include a variety of buffet and á la carte restaurants, bars, activities, and shows and entertainment throughout the day. “Net Package Revenue” consists of net revenues derived from all-inclusive packages purchased by our guests. “Net Non-package Revenue” primarily includes net revenue associated with guests' purchases of upgrades, premium services and amenities, such as premium rooms, dining experiences, wines and spirits and spa packages, which are not included in the all-inclusive package.

The following table shows a reconciliation of Total Net Revenue to Total Revenue for the three and nine months ended 2017 and 2016:

Three Months Ended September 30,
Nine Months Ended September 30,
2017201620172016
Total Net Package Revenue$ 98,674$ 96,919$ 363,766$ 340,171

Total Revenue$ 118,342$ 114,114$ 433,007$ 401,370

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Resort EBITDA

We define EBITDA, a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure, as net income (loss), determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, for the period presented, before interest expense, income tax and depreciation and amortization expense. We define Adjusted EBITDA, a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure, as EBITDA further adjusted to exclude the following items:

  • Other expense (income), net
  • Impairment loss
  • Management termination fees
  • Pre-opening expenses
  • Transaction expenses
  • Severance expenses
  • Other tax expense
  • Property damage insurance proceeds
  • Share-based compensation expense
  • Loss (gain) on extinguishment of debt
  • Other items which may include, but are not limited to the following: management contract termination fees; gains or losses from legal settlements; repairs from hurricanes and tropical storms; and Jamaica delayed opening accrual

We define Resort EBITDA as Adjusted EBITDA before corporate expenses.

We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors for two principal reasons. First, we believe Adjusted EBITDA assists investors in comparing our performance over various reporting periods on a consistent basis by removing from our operating results the impact of items that do not reflect our core operating performance. For example, changes in foreign exchange rates (which are the principal driver of changes in other expense (income), net), and expenses related to capital raising, strategic initiatives and other corporate initiatives, such as expansion into new markets (which are the principal drivers of changes in transaction expenses), are not indicative of the operating performance of our resorts. The other adjustments included in our definition of Adjusted EBITDA relate to items that occur infrequently and therefore would obstruct the comparability of our operating results over reporting periods. For example, impairment losses, such as those resulting from hurricane damage, and related revenue from insurance policies, other than business interruption insurance policies, as well as expenses incurred in connection with closing or reopening resorts that undergo expansions or renovations, are infrequent in nature, and we believe excluding these expense and revenue items permits investors to better evaluate the core operating performance of our resorts over time.

The second principal reason that we believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors is that it is considered a key performance indicator by our board of directors (our "Board") and management. In addition, the compensation committee of our Board determines the annual variable compensation for certain members of our management based, in part, on consolidated Adjusted EBITDA. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it provides investors with information utilized by our Board and management to assess our performance and may (subject to the limitations described below) enable investors to compare the performance of our portfolio to our competitors.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Resort EBITDA are not substitutes for net income (loss) or any other measure determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. There are limitations to the utility of non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, such as Adjusted EBITDA. For example, other companies in our industry may define Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do. As a result, it may be difficult to use Adjusted EBITDA or similarly named non-U.S. GAAP financial measures that other companies publish to compare the performance of those companies to our performance. Because of these and other limitations, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Resort EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of the income or loss generated by our business or discretionary cash available for investment in our business, and investors should carefully consider our U.S. GAAP results presented in this release.

  1. Represents changes in foreign exchange and other miscellaneous expenses or income.

  2. Represents expenses incurred in connection with corporate initiatives, such as: the redesign and build-out of our internal controls; other capital raising efforts including the business combination with Pace; and strategic initiatives, such as possible expansion into new markets. We eliminate these expenses from Adjusted EBITDA because they are not attributable to our core operating performance.

  3. Relates primarily to a Dominican Republic asset tax, which is an alternative tax to income tax in the Dominican Republic. We eliminate this expense from Adjusted EBITDA because it is substantially similar to the income tax expense we eliminate from our calculation of EBITDA.

  4. Represents a reversal on an expense accrual recorded in 2014 related to our future stay obligations provided to guests affected by the delayed opening of Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall. The partial reversal of this accrual occurred throughout 2017.

  5. Represents a portion of the insurance proceeds related to property insurance and not business interruption proceeds.

  6. Represents repair and maintenance expenses at Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos due to Tropical Storm Lidia and Dreams Punta Cana due to Hurricane Maria for $0.4 million and $0.3 million respectively. These are expenses incurred that are not covered by insurance claims or offset by insurance proceeds.

Highlights

Yucatán Peninsula

  • Net Package RevPAR increased 1.9% over the comparable period in the prior year, driven by an increase in Net Package ADR of 4.1%, which was offset by a decrease in occupancy of 190 basis points.
  • Resort EBITDA decreased $2.5 million or 10.5% over the prior year.
    - This decrease was primarily the result of Gran Caribe and Gran Porto, which together accounted for a decrease of $3.1 million compared to prior year. These resorts had a decrease in occupancy and package revenue, as well as an increase in operational expenses to advance the renovations and conversion of these resorts to the Panama Jack brand. These renovations are on track to be completed by early December.
