Andrew M. Sims, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sotherly Hotels Inc., commented, “We had a difficult quarter. With hurricanes Harvey and Irma causing significant disruption to operations during our busy season, significant revenue loss occurred at seven of our twelve hotels during the actual event. While we incurred some physical damage at three hotels, all hotels remained opened except for our Hollywood hotel, which reopened almost immediately. The results booked for the quarter do not include any insurance recovery. We are in the process of working with our insurance carriers to resolve the claims.”

Balance Sheet/Liquidity

At September 30, 2017, the Company had approximately $38.8 million of available cash and cash equivalents, of which approximately $6.1 million was reserved for real estate taxes, insurance, capital improvements and certain other expenses or otherwise restricted. The Company had approximately $323.0 million in outstanding debt at a weighted average interest rate of approximately 4.78%.

On December 2, 2016, the Company’s board of directors authorized a stock repurchase program under which the Company may purchase up to $10.0 million of its outstanding common stock, par value $0.01 per share, at prevailing prices on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions, at the discretion of management. The Company has used and expects to continue to use available working capital to fund purchases under the stock repurchase program. The repurchase program is authorized until December 31, 2017, unless extended by the board of directors. As of September 30, 2017, the Company has repurchased approximately 481,100 shares of common stock at an average price of $6.53 per share totaling approximately $3.2 million. The repurchase program may be suspended or discontinued at any time, and the Company is not obligated to acquire any particular amount or number of shares.

Subsequent to the balance sheet date, on October 11, 2017, the Company closed a sale and issuance of 1,200,000 shares of its 7.875% Series C Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Stock (the “Series C Preferred Stock”), for net proceeds after all estimated expenses of approximately $28.0 million. On October 17, 2017, the Company closed a sale and issuance of an additional 100,000 shares of its Series C Preferred Stock, for net proceeds of approximately $2.4 million, as a result of the partial exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares. We intend to use the net proceeds to redeem in full the Operating Partnership’s 7.0% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2019 (the “7% Notes”) and, to use any remaining net proceeds, for general corporate purposes, including potential future acquisitions of hotel properties.

Subsequent to the balance sheet date, on October 12, 2017, the Company notified Wilmington Trust, National Association (the “Trustee”) of the Operating Partnership’s intent to redeem the entire $25.3 million aggregate principal amount of its 7% Notes, pursuant to the terms of the indenture. The 7% Notes will be redeemed on November 15, 2017 at a redemption price equal to 101% of the principal amount of the 7% Notes, plus any accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the redemption date.

Portfolio Update

On July 31, 2017, the Company rebranded its property in Savannah, Georgia from the Hilton Savannah DeSoto to The DeSoto. A $9.5 million renovation of the guestrooms and public spaces is substantially complete.

On October 25, 2017, the Company rebranded its property in Hollywood, Florida from the Crowne Plaza Hollywood Beach Resort to the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hollywood Beach and a $7.1 million renovation of the guestrooms and public space is nearing completion. As of September 30, 2017, the Company had incurred costs of approximately $5.5 million toward the renovation.

At the Company’s hotel in Wilmington, North Carolina, a $8.6 million renovation of the guestrooms and public space is underway, in anticipation of an upcoming rebranding in early 2018. As of September 30, 2017, the Company had incurred costs of approximately $5.2 million. Renovations are expected to be complete in March 2018.

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, ramp-up at the Hyde Resort & Residences, the impact of hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the issuance of the Series C Preferred Stock and the retirement of the 7% Notes. The guidance is predicated on estimates of occupancy and ADR that are consistent with the most recent 2017 calendar year forecasts by STR 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.
