CorePoint Lodging Reports Second Quarter 2021 Results

IRVING, Texas, Aug. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CorePoint Lodging Inc. (NYSE: CPLG) (“CorePoint” or the “Company”), a pure play select-service hotel owner strategically focused on the midscale and upper-midscale segments, today reported operational and financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Second Quarter 2021 and Subsequent Highlights

  • Net income of $28 million, or $0.48 earnings per diluted share
  • Comparable RevPAR of $58.99, an increase of 137.8% from the same period in 2020 and a decrease of 14.7% from the same period in 2019
  • Adjusted EBITDAre of $31 million
  • Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders of $24 million, or $0.41 per diluted share
  • The Company exercised its second extension option on its CMBS Facility to extend the maturity date to June 2022, with borrower options to further extend the maturity date for three successive terms of one year each
  • Sold 25 non-core hotels for a combined gross sales price of approximately $143 million during the quarter
  • Repaid $130 million in total debt during the quarter
  • Subsequent to quarter end, sold 8 non-core hotels for a gross sales price of approximately $44 million, resulting in a total of 147 non-core hotels sold since March 2019 for a combined gross sales price of approximately $680 million

“The performance of our select service, leisure focused hotels has strengthened as we have moved through our historical peak season in the second and third quarters,” noted Keith Cline, President and Chief Executive Officer of CorePoint. “This positive momentum has allowed us to capture the pent up demand in suburban, drive-to destination, and interstate-adjacent markets resulting in $35 million of hotel Adjusted EBITDAre in the second quarter.”

Mr. Cline added, “Our non-core disposition program has been accelerating throughout 2021 as we have closed on the sale of 42 assets for $229 million in gross proceeds year to date and have an additional 37 hotels under contract expected to generate an additional $234 million in gross proceeds. Since the inception of our real estate disposition strategy, we have either sold or put under contract over 85% of the 210 hotels we identified as non-core.”

Second Quarter 2021 Financial and Operating Results

The Company reported net income of $28 million, or $0.48 earnings per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to a net loss of $(107) million, or $(1.89) loss per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Increases in year-over-year revenues and lower operating and other expenses led to the increase in net income.

Comparable RevPAR for the second quarter of 2021 increased 137.8% over the same period of 2020 with 1,118 basis points of RevPAR Index market share decline. The growth in comparable RevPAR was driven by a 34.0% increase in comparable ADR and a 2,750 bps increase in comparable occupancy. The increases in comparable ADR and comparable occupancy were primarily due to increased demand in 2021 as compared to the COVID-19 pandemic impact in 2020. Top performing markets included Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Austin and San Antonio, Texas, and San Diego, California.

Adjusted EBITDAre for the second quarter of 2021 was $31 million as compared to $(8) million for the same period in 2020. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to increases in rooms revenue.

Operations Update and Measures to Mitigate Impact of COVID-19

For the three months ended June 30, 2021 all of our hotels were fully open and accepting transient guests. We have fully resumed operations for all of our hotels since August 2020.

The Company’s hotels’ room demand and increasing rate continued to benefit from leisure travel, certain segments of corporate travel related to essential businesses and being located in drive-to destinations. The following table summarizes select operating statistics for the months of April, May, and June 2021:

  Comparable Occupancy   Comparable ADR   Comparable RevPAR
April 2021 61.9 %   $ 86.35     $ 53.44  
May 2021 61.8 %   $ 93.25     $ 57.63  
June 2021 65.7 %   $ 100.35     $ 65.94  

The Company continues to implement certain cost containment measures with respect to hotel and corporate spending to mitigate the ongoing operational and financial impact from the COVID-19 pandemic

Dispositions

Since CorePoint announced its initial non-core disposition program of 78 hotels in March 2019, 72 of these hotels have been successfully sold for a combined gross sales price of approximately $287 million and an additional 3 phase one hotels are under contract with qualified buyers, expected to generate approximately $13 million in gross proceeds. The Company’s expanded non-core disposition program announced in March 2020 includes an additional phase two group of 132 hotels. Of the phase two hotels, 75 have been successfully sold for a combined gross sales price of approximately $393 million and an additional 34 phase two hotels are under contract with qualified buyers, expected to generate approximately $221 million in gross proceeds. There can be no assurance as to the timing of any future sales or whether such sales will be completed at all. The company is unable to forecast at this time the impact from the COVID-19 pandemic on the timing of or gross proceeds from asset sales.

Capital Investments

The Company invested approximately $5 million in capital improvements in the second quarter of 2021. As previously disclosed, CorePoint is currently deferring all non-essential capital investments and expenditures, with the exception of life safety or critical operational needs, resulting in an expected annual capital spend estimate of $15 million to $20 million, excluding any hurricane restoration costs which are predominantly covered by insurance proceeds.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of June 30, 2021, the Company had total cash and cash equivalents of $159 million, excluding lender and other escrows of approximately $45 million.

As of June 30, 2021, the Company had total debt principal outstanding of $639 million, which consisted of the following:

(Unaudited, $ in millions)

Debt   Interest Rate   Maturity Date   Principal Balance Outstanding
CMBS Loan (1)(2)   L + 2.96%   June 2025   $ 564   
Revolving Credit Facility (3)   L + 6.00%   May 2022   75   
Total           $ 639   
                 

____________________

  1. Maturity date assumes the exercise of all borrower extension options. The next maturity date is June 2022, with borrower options to extend the maturity date for three successive terms of one year each. In June 2021, the Company extended the CMBS Facility to June 2022 under the second extension option. Amount shown represents gross principal balance outstanding.
  2. As noted in the Hotel Disposition Summary table above, the Company used approximately $39 million of net proceeds from its asset sales to reduce the CMBS principal balance outstanding to $525 million as of today.
  3. Subsequent to quarter end, the Company repaid $5 million to reduce the Revolving Credit Facility principal balance outstanding to $70 million as of today.

Dividends

As previously disclosed, the Company has currently suspended its common stock dividend, resulting in the preservation of approximately $11 million of cash per quarter, or approximately $45 million on an annualized basis. All future dividends will be at the sole discretion of CorePoint’s Board of Directors and will depend upon, among other things compliance with debt covenants and maintenance of our REIT qualification.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These statements may include, but are not limited to, statements related to the Company’s exploration of strategic alternatives and its impact on the Company and stockholder value, our expectations regarding the impact of and recovery from the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, our expectations with respect to our non-core property disposition strategy, as well as other statements representing management’s beliefs about future events, transactions, strategies, operations and financial results and other non-historical statements. Such forward-looking statements often contain words such as “assume,” “will,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “predict,” “project,” “potential,” “contemplate,” “plan,” “forecast,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “is targeting,” “may,” “should,” “would,” “could,” “goal,” “seek,” “hope,” “aim,” “continue” and other similar words or expressions or the negative thereof or other variations thereon. Forward-looking statements are made based upon management’s current expectations and beliefs and are not guarantees of future performance. Such forward-looking statements involve numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any such statements. Our actual business, financial condition or results of operations may differ materially from those suggested by forward-looking statements as a result of risks and uncertainties which include, among others: risks and uncertainties as to the terms, timing, structure, benefits and costs of any strategic alternative or whether one will be consummated at all; business, financial and operating risks inherent to the lodging industry; macroeconomic and other factors beyond our control, including without limitation the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic or other pandemics or outbreaks of contagious disease; the geographic concentration of our hotels; our inability to compete effectively; our concentration in the La Quinta brand; our dependence on the performance of LQ Management L.L.C. and other third-party hotel managers and franchisors; covenants in our hotel management and franchise agreements that limit or restrict the sale of our hotels; risks posed by our disposition activities, including our ability to contract with qualified buyers and the risk that purchasers may not have the access to capital or meet other requirements; risks resulting from significant investments in real estate; cyber threats and the risk of data breaches or disruptions of technology information systems; the growth of internet reservation channels; disruptions to the functioning or transition of the reservation systems, accounting systems or other technology programs for our hotels, and other technology programs and system upgrades; and our substantial indebtedness, including restrictions imposed on our ability to access our cash. Additional risks and uncertainties include, among others, those risks and uncertainties described under “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 and in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2021, which is expected to filed on or about the date of this press release, as such factors may be updated or superseded from time to time in our periodic filings with the SEC. You are urged to carefully consider all such factors and we note that the COVID-19 pandemic had a material adverse effect on the Company’s results for periods following the onset of the pandemic in early 2020 and may continue to have a significant adverse impact on the Company’s results of operations in the near term.   As such, the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, as well as upcoming periods, are unlikely to be comparable to periods prior to the onset of the pandemic or to other periods affected by the pandemic, and are not indicative of future performance. Although it is believed that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable and are expressed in good faith, such expectations may not prove to be correct and persons reading this communication are therefore cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only to expectations as of the date of this communication. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as required by law. If we make any future public statements or disclosures which modify or impact any of the forward-looking statements contained in or accompanying this press release, such statements or disclosures will be deemed to modify or supersede such statements in this press release.

RECONCILIATIONS

The tables below provide a reconciliation of Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDAre, EBITDAre and EBITDA to net income (loss), and a reconciliation of FFO and Adjusted FFO to net income (loss). We believe this financial information provides meaningful supplemental information because it represents how management views the business and reviews our operating performance. It is also used by management when publicly providing the business outlook. See the definitions of “EBITDA,” “EBITDAre,” “Adjusted EBITDAre,” “Comparable Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre,” “FFO” and “Adjusted FFO,” for a further explanation of the use of these measures.

“EBITDA.” Earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) is a commonly used measure in many REIT and non-REIT related industries. We believe EBITDA is useful in evaluating our operating performance because it provides an indication of our ability to incur and service debt, to satisfy general operating expenses, and to make capital expenditures. We calculate EBITDA excluding discontinued operations. EBITDA is intended to be a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is independent of a company’s capital structure.

“EBITDAre.” We present EBITDAre in accordance with guidelines established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“Nareit”). Nareit defines EBITDAre as EBITDA adjusted for gains or losses on the disposition of properties, impairments, and adjustments to reflect the entity’s share of EBITDAre of unconsolidated affiliates. We believe EBITDAre is a useful performance measure to help investors evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period.

“Adjusted EBITDAre.” Adjusted EBITDAre is calculated as EBITDAre adjusted for certain items, such as restructuring and separation transaction expenses, acquisition transaction expenses, stock-based compensation expense, severance expense, and other items not indicative of ongoing operating performance.

The Company believes that EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre provide useful information to investors about it and its financial condition and results of operations for the following reasons: (i) EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre are among the measures used by the Company’s management to evaluate its operating performance and make day-to-day operating decisions; and (ii) EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, lenders and other interested parties as a common performance measure to compare results or estimate valuations across companies in and apart from the Company’s industry sector.

EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre are not recognized terms under GAAP, have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered either in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss), cash flow or other methods of analyzing the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are that these measures:

  • do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company’s working capital needs;
  • do not reflect the Company’s interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on its indebtedness;
  • do not reflect the Company’s tax expense or the cash requirements to pay its taxes;
  • do not reflect historical cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre do not include gains or losses on the disposition of properties which may be material to our operating performance and cash flow;
  • do not reflect the impact on earnings or changes resulting from matters that the Company considers not to be indicative of our future operations, including but not limited to discontinued operations, impairment, acquisition and disposition activities and restructuring expenses;
  • although depreciation, amortization and impairment are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated, amortized or impaired will often have to be replaced, upgraded or repositioned in the future, and EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
  • other companies in the Company’s industry may calculate EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

Because of these limitations, EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre should not be considered as a replacement to net income (loss) presented in accordance with GAAP, discretionary cash available to the Company to reinvest in the growth of its business or as measures of cash that will be available to the Company to meet its obligations.

“Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre” measures property-level results at the Company’s hotels before corporate-level expenses and is a key measure of a hotel’s profitability. The Company presents Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre to help the Company and its investors evaluate the ongoing operating performance of the Company’s properties.

“Comparable Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre” measures property-level results at the Company’s Comparable hotels before corporate-level expenses and is a key measure of a hotel’s profitability. The Company presents Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre to help the Company and its investors evaluate the ongoing operating performance of the Company’s properties.

“Comparable Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre margin” represents the ratio of Comparable Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre to total revenues.

Funds from operations (“FFO”) and “Adjusted FFO”. We present Nareit FFO attributable to common stockholders and Nareit FFO per diluted share (as defined below) as non-GAAP measures of our performance. We calculate funds from operations (“FFO”) attributable to common stockholders for a given operating period in accordance with standards established by Nareit, as net income or loss (calculated in accordance with GAAP), excluding depreciation and amortization related to real estate, gains or losses on sales of certain real estate assets, impairment write-downs of real estate assets, discontinued operations, income taxes related to sales of certain real estate assets, and the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles, plus adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures are calculated to reflect our pro rata share of the FFO of those entities on the same basis. Since real estate values historically have risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors have considered presentation of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by themselves. For these reasons, Nareit adopted the FFO metric in order to promote an industry wide measure of REIT operating performance. We believe Nareit FFO provides useful information to investors regarding our operating performance and can facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs. Our presentation may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the terms in accordance with the current Nareit definition, or that interpret the current Nareit definition differently than we do. We calculate Nareit FFO per diluted share as our Nareit FFO divided by the number of fully diluted shares outstanding during a given operating period.

We also present Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders when evaluating our performance because we believe that the exclusion of certain additional items described below provides useful supplemental information to investors regarding our ongoing operating performance. Management historically has made the adjustments detailed below in evaluating our performance and in our annual budget process. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted FFO provides useful supplemental information that is beneficial to an investor’s complete understanding of our operating performance. We adjust Nareit FFO attributable to common stockholders for the following items, and refer to this measure as Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders: transaction expense associated with the potential disposition of or acquisition of real estate or businesses; severance expense; share-based compensation expense; litigation gains and losses outside the ordinary course of business; amortization of debt issuance costs; reorganization costs and separation transaction expenses; loss on early extinguishment of debt; straight-line ground lease expense; casualty losses; deferred tax expense; and other items that we believe are not representative of our current or future operating performance.

Nareit FFO attributable to common stockholders and Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered either in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss), cash flow or other methods of analyzing our results as reported under GAAP. Nareit FFO is not an indication of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to fund dividends. Nareit FFO is also not a useful measure in evaluating net asset value because impairments are taken into account in determining net asset value but not in determining Nareit FFO. Investors are cautioned that we may not recover any impairment charges in the future. Accordingly, Nareit FFO should be reviewed in connection with GAAP measurements. We believe our presentation of Nareit FFO is in accordance with the Nareit definition; however, our Nareit FFO may not be comparable to amounts calculated by other REITs.

CERTAIN DEFINED TERMS

Average daily rate (“ADR”) represents hotel room revenues divided by total number of rooms rented in a given period. ADR measures the average room price attained by a hotel or group of hotels, and ADR trends provide useful information concerning pricing policies and the nature of the guest base of a hotel or group of hotels. Changes in room rates have an impact on overall revenues and profitability.

“Occupancy” represents the total number of rooms rented in a given period divided by the total number of rooms available at a hotel or group of hotels. Occupancy measures the utilization of our hotels’ available capacity, which may be affected from time to time by our repositioning, property casualties and other activities. Management uses occupancy to gauge demand at a specific hotel or group of hotels in a given period. Occupancy levels also help us determine achievable ADR levels as demand for hotel rooms increases or decreases.

Revenue per available room (“RevPAR”) is defined as the product of the ADR charged and the average daily occupancy achieved. RevPAR does not include bad debt expense or other ancillary, non-room revenues, such as food and beverage revenues or parking, telephone or other guest service revenues generated by a hotel, which are not significant for us.

RevPAR changes that are driven predominately by occupancy have different implications for overall revenue levels and incremental hotel operating profit than changes driven predominately by ADR. For example, increases in occupancy at a hotel would lead to increases in room and other revenues, as well as incremental operating costs (including, but not limited to, housekeeping services, utilities and room amenity costs). RevPAR increases due to higher ADR, however, would generally not result in additional operating costs, with the exception of those charged or incurred as a percentage of revenue, such as management and royalty fees, credit card fees and booking commissions. As a result, changes in RevPAR driven by increases or decreases in ADR generally have a greater effect on operating profitability at our hotels than changes in RevPAR driven by occupancy levels.

“RevPAR Index” measures a hotel’s fair market share of its competitive set’s revenue per available room.

“Comparable Hotels” are defined as hotels that were active and operating in our system for at least one full calendar year as of the end of the applicable reporting period and were active and operating as of January 1st of the previous year. Comparable Hotels exclude: (i) hotels that sustained substantial property damage or other business interruption; (ii) hotels that are sold or classified as held for sale; or (iii) hotels in which comparable results are otherwise not available. Management uses Comparable Hotels as the basis upon which to evaluate ADR, occupancy, and RevPAR. Management calculates comparable ADR, Occupancy, and RevPAR using the same set of Comparable Hotels as defined above. Further, we report variances in comparable ADR, occupancy, and RevPAR between periods for the set of Comparable Hotels existing at the reporting date versus the results of the same set of hotels in the prior period.
