For the twelve-month period ending December 31, 2019, RevPAR increased 3.4% over the twelve months ended December 31, 2018, to $112.94 driven by a 1.4% increase in occupancy and a 2.0% increase in ADR.

  • Common Dividends. On January 28, 2020, the Company announced a quarterly dividend (distribution) on its common stock (and units) of $0.13 per share (and unit) to stockholders (and unitholders) of record as of March 13, 2020, payable on April 9, 2020.
  • Hotel EBITDA. The Company generated hotel EBITDA of approximately $9.3 million during the three-month period ending December 31, 2019.  Hotel EBITDA decreased 9.4%, or approximately $1.0 million, over the three months ended December 31, 2018.  For the twelve-month period ending December 31, 2019, hotel EBITDA decreased 1.6%, or approximately $0.7 million, over the twelve months ended December 31, 2018.  As discussed below, included in Hotel EBITDA is a charge associated with the termination of ten hotel management contracts with MHI Hotels Services, which does business as Chesapeake Hospitality.
  • Adjusted FFO available to common stockholders and unitholders. For the three-month period ending December 31, 2019, adjusted FFO available to common stockholders and unitholders decreased 49.4% from the three months ended December 31, 2018.  For the twelve-month period ending December 31, 2019, adjusted FFO available to common stockholders and unitholders increased 7.8% or approximately $1.2 million over the twelve months ended December 31, 2018.

Andrew M. Sims, Chairman of the board of directors of Sotherly Hotels Inc., commented, “The fourth quarter of 2019 was one of the most active and memorable quarters in the company’s long history.  We executed on our plan to replace our management partner for the core portfolio with Our Town Hospitality.  We also completed a Succession Plan that saw the promotion of Dave Folsom to Chief Executive Officer and included two additional in-house promotions to our senior management team.  We believe this team is well-positioned to lead the Company moving forward.  We opened and commenced our rental program at the new Hyde Beach House Resort & Residences, a condominium hotel located in Hollywood, Florida, and we took possession of a new ballroom and structured parking at our DoubleTree Resort in Hollywood.  The completion of the renovations at our newly converted Hotel Alba Tampa represents the culmination of five years of significant capital improvements across our portfolio.  We believe all these events bode well for the future success of the company.”

Balance Sheet/Liquidity

At December 31, 2019, the Company had approximately $28.0 million of available cash and cash equivalents, of which approximately $4.2 million was reserved for real estate taxes, insurance, capital improvements and certain other expenses or otherwise restricted. The Company had principal balances of approximately $361.0 million in outstanding debt at a weighted average interest rate of approximately 4.89%.

Other Developments

On December 13, 2019, we entered into a series of agreements with Our Town Hospitality LLC, a Virginia limited liability company ("Our Town") relating to the retention of Our Town as the manager of ten of our hotels.  Our Town began managing these hotels on January 1, 2020.  Please reference our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 16, 2019 for additional details.

On January 1, 2020, ten of our hotel management agreements with Chesapeake Hospitality expired.  In connection with the termination of those ten agreements, we are required to pay Chesapeake a termination fee of approximately $0.3 million.  The termination fee must be paid by March 30, 2020.

On February 14, 2020, we entered into a hotel purchase and sale agreement to sell the Sheraton Louisville Riverside hotel located in Jeffersonville, Indiana (the “Hotel”) to 808 Indiana LLC for a purchase price of $13.5 million.  Certain representations and warranties of the Seller under the purchase and sale agreement are unconditionally guaranteed by the Operating Partnership up to a maximum of $750,000.  The Company intends to use proceeds from the sale of the Hotel to repay the existing mortgage on the Hotel and for general corporate purposes.  The closing of the sale is subject to various customary closing conditions, including the satisfactory completion of a diligence review of the Hotel, the accuracy of representations and warranties through closing, conditions related to the operation and maintenance of the Hotel, and conditions related to franchise approval.

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, management contract termination costs and change in control gains or losses. 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) gain on exercise of development right, (12) corporate general and administrative expense, (13) depreciation and amortization, (14) gains and losses on involuntary conversions of assets, (15) distributions to preferred stockholders and (16) 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.
