HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Common Dividends. Consistent with the Company’s announcement in July 2011 that it has reinstated payment of quarterly dividends on its common stock, the Company declared another quarterly dividend (distribution) of $0.02 per common share (and unit), payable on April 11, 2012 to stockholders (and unitholders) of record as of March 15, 2012.
  • RevPAR. Room revenue per available room (“RevPAR”) for the Company’s wholly-owned properties increased 5.3 percent over the fourth quarter 2010 to $66.75 driven by a 5.1 percent increase in average daily rate (“ADR”). For the year 2011, RevPAR increased 5.8 percent over 2010 to $72.94.
  • Hotel EBITDA. The Company generated hotel EBITDA of approximately $4.0 million during the fourth quarter 2011, bringing its annual total hotel EBITDA to $18.7 million, an increase of approximately $1.1 million over 2010.
  • Adjusted EBITDA. The Company generated adjusted EBITDA of approximately $3.6 million during the fourth quarter 2011, bringing its total annual adjusted EBITDA to approximately $17.1 million, an increase of approximately $1.5 million over 2010.
  • Adjusted FFO. The Company generated adjusted FFO of approximately $0.6 million during the fourth quarter 2011 and approximately $5.6 million for the year 2011, an increase of approximately $0.3 million over adjusted FFO for 2010.
  • Capital Expenditures. In 2011, the Company invested approximately $6.0 million of capital throughout its portfolio, including approximately $3.0 million at its property in Raleigh, North Carolina, which became the Doubletree by Hilton Brownstone-University during the fourth quarter 2011.

Andrew M. Sims, Chairman and CEO of MHI Hospitality Corporation, commented, “2011 was a significant year for the Company. Early in the year, we completed a preferred transaction that permitted an extension of all debt maturities, thus allowing us to transact a series of single asset property financings that we expect to ultimately lead to a pay off of our syndicated credit facility. The balance sheet restructuring allowed us to increase our liquidity, reinstate our common dividend and be in a position to begin the process of growing our portfolio.”

Financing Transactions

  • On October 17, 2011, the Company obtained a 5-year, $8.0 million mortgage with Premier Bank, Inc. on the Doubletree by Hilton Brownstone-University hotel property. The mortgage bears interest at a rate of 5.25% per annum for the first five years and may be extended for an additional five years, at the Company’s option if certain conditions precedent have been satisfied, during which it will bear interest at a rate of 3.00% per annum plus the then-current 5-year U.S. Treasury bill rate of interest. Proceeds of the mortgage were used to pay down a related portion of the Company’s indebtedness under its credit facility.
  • On December 15, 2011, the Company obtained a 5-year, $12.2 million mortgage with Goldman Sachs Commercial Mortgage Capital, L.P. on the Sheraton Louisville Riverside hotel property. The mortgage bears interest at a rate of 6.2415% per annum. Proceeds of the mortgage were used to pay down a related portion of the Company’s indebtedness under its credit facility.
  • On December 21, 2011, the Company entered into an amendment to its $10.0 million bridge loan agreement with Essex Equity High Income Joint Investment Vehicle, LLC to extend the lender’s loan commitment by 17 months through May 31, 2013.
  • On December 21, 2011, the Company also amended the terms of the outstanding warrant issued by the Company in favor of two affiliates of the lender of the bridge loan, Essex Illiquid, LLC and Richmond Hill Capital Partners, LP. Pursuant to the warrant amendment, the exercise price per share of common stock covered by the warrant will be adjusted from time to time in the event of cash dividends upon common stock by deducting from such exercise price the per-share amount of such cash dividends. Such adjustment does not take into account quarterly dividends declared prior to January 1, 2012.

Balance Sheet/Liquidity

At December 31, 2011, the Company had approximately $7.1 million of available cash and cash equivalents, of which approximately $2.7 million was reserved for real estate taxes, insurance, capital improvements and certain other expenses or otherwise restricted. The Company had approximately $154.3 million in outstanding debt at a weighted average interest rate of approximately 6.73%. The Company also had $5.0 million of availability on its bridge loan agreement at December 31, 2011.

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 should 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 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 that was 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.

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 believes that excluding the effect of corporate-level expenses and non-cash items, and the portion of these items that relate to unconsolidated entities, provides a more complete understanding of the operating results over which individual hotels and operators have direct control. We believe property-level results provide 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 previously reported Hotel EBITDA as Adjusted Operating Income.

Adjusted FFO and Adjusted EBITDA

The Company presents adjusted FFO, including adjusted FFO per share and unit, and adjusted EBITDA, which adjusts for certain additional items including any unrealized gain (loss) on its hedging instruments or warrant derivative, impairment losses, losses on early extinguishment of debt, aborted offering costs, costs associated with the departure of executive officers and acquisition transaction costs. The Company excludes these items as it believes it allows for meaningful comparisons between periods and among other REITs and is more indicative of the on-going performance of its business and assets. The Company’s calculation of adjusted FFO and adjusted EBITDA may be different from similar measures calculated by other REITs.
