Extended Stay America’s Chief Executive Officer, Jonathan Halkyard, commented, “We finished 2017 strong with our highest quarterly RevPAR growth of the year, aided by improved performance in California and markets impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Irma.”

Mr. Halkyard continued, “Looking to 2018, we are encouraged by the strength of consumer and business optimism we have seen across the country. Our portfolio transformation moves ahead with the recently completed 25 hotel asset sale and we welcome the buyer as the first third party owner into our system. We expect to continue to de-lever our balance sheet this year as well as return a significant amount of capital to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases.”

Financial and Operating Results

Total revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2017 were $302.5 million. Other hotel revenues increased 4.8% to $5.1 million. Total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2017 were $1,282.7 million. Other hotel revenues for the year increased 10.8% to $21.9 million. Total revenue growth for both the fourth quarter and full year 2017 were negatively impacted by lost revenue from four hotels sold in the second quarter of 2017 and one hotel sold in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Comparable Hotel RevPAR for the three months ended December 31, 2017 grew 3.3% over the same period in 2016, driven by an improvement in average daily rate (“ADR”) of 4.7%, partially offset by a 100 basis point decline in occupancy to 69.8%. Comparable Hotel RevPAR for the year ended December 31, 2017 increased 1.9% over the same period in 2016, driven by a 1.3% increase in ADR and a 50 basis point increase in occupancy to 74.6%.  

Hotel Operating Margin1for the three months ended December 31, 2017 was 53.0% compared to 55.1% in the same period in 2016.  Hotel Operating Margin for the year ended December 31, 2017 was 55.0% compared to 55.1% in the same period in 2016.

Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2017 was $40.2 million compared to $30.1 million in the same period in 2016. Net income in the fourth quarter was positively impacted by a gain on an asset sale, partially offset by a higher income tax rate.  Income tax expense for the three months ended December 31, 2017 was $18.8 million, including a $4.1 million provisional income tax expense charge related to the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act, compared to $8.1 million in the same period in 2016.  Net income for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $172.2 million compared to $163.4 million in the same period in 2016.  Income tax expense for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $59.5 million compared to $34.4 million in the same period in 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2017 was $140.2 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the three months excludes a non-cash equity-based compensation benefit of $1.5 million, impairment charges of $4.8 million, an $11.9 million gain on asset sale and loss on disposal of assets and other net expenses of $0.5 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $622.9 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the year excludes non-cash equity based compensation of $7.6 million, impairment charges of $25.2 million, net gain on sale of hotel properties of $10.0 million and loss on disposal of assets and other net expenses of $9.5 million.  

Adjusted FFO for the three months ended December 31, 2017 was $77.1 million, a decrease from the same period in 2016 due to an increase in the effective tax rate, primarily from a one-time provisional income tax expense charge of $4.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 related to the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act. Adjusted FFO per diluted Paired Share was $0.40 compared to $0.41 in the same period in 2016. Adjusted FFO for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $357.1 million. Adjusted FFO per diluted Paired Share was $1.84 compared to $1.79 for the same period in 2016. Adjusted FFO, a non-GAAP measure, represents funds from operations, as adjusted, attributable to the consolidated enterprise, whose representative equity security is a Paired Share. A Paired Share entitles its holder to participate in 100% of the common equity and earnings of both Extended Stay America, Inc. and ESH Hospitality, Inc. 

Adjusted Paired Share Income for the three months ended December 31, 2017 was $36.2 million, or $0.19 per diluted Paired Share, compared to $38.8 million, or $0.20 per diluted Paired Share, in the same period in 2016. The decline in adjusted Paired Share Income was due to an increase in the effective tax rate, which included a $(0.02) impact from the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act. Adjusted Paired Share Income for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $192.9 million, or $1.00 per diluted Paired Share, compared to $199.0 million, or $0.99 per diluted Paired Share, in the same period in 2016. Adjusted Paired Share Income, a non-GAAP measure, represents net income, as adjusted, attributable to the consolidated enterprise, whose representative equity security is a Paired Share.

Capital Expenditures

The Company invested $33.5 million in capital expenditures during the fourth quarter of 2017. For the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company invested $166.4 million in capital expenditures, including approximately $11.9 million related to insurable events and approximately $3.8 million for ESA 2.0 investments.

Asset Dispositions

The Company recently completed the sale of 25 hotels for gross proceeds of $114.0 million, including franchise application fees. These hotels will remain branded as Extended Stay America hotels and the Company will manage the hotels. The Company sold one additional hotel for $16.0 million in December 2017. In conjunction with the single hotel asset sale in December 2017, the Company entered into a 1031 exchange to buy land as well as a hotel conversion opportunity that we expect to close on during the second quarter 2018. The Company currently expects to close on the sale of our previously announced Austin hotel in 2018 or 2019 for approximately $44.8 million. The Company expects to remain approximately leverage neutral as a result of these transactions.

Distribution and Share Repurchases

On February 27, 2018, the Boards of Directors of Extended Stay America, Inc. and ESH Hospitality, Inc. declared cash distributions totaling $0.21 per Paired Share for the fourth quarter of 2017.  The distributions are payable on March 27, 2018 to shareholders of record as of March 13, 2018. 

During the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company repurchased approximately 0.2 million Paired Shares for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $3.5 million. For the full year of 2017, the Company repurchased approximately 3.6 million Paired Shares for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $62.3 million. Between January 1, 2018 through this morning, the Company had repurchased approximately 1.1 million Paired Shares for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $20.6 million. On February 27, 2018, the Boards of Directors of Extended Stay America, Inc. and ESH Hospitality, Inc. authorized a combined increase of up to $100 million for Paired Share repurchases. As of February 27, 2018, the Company had approximately $177.4 million in repurchase authorization remaining.

2018 Outlook

The Company’s outlook for 2018 is as follows:

Full Year 2018     599 Hotel Basis
in millions, except %     Low       High  
                 
Total Revenues*   $ 1,257     $ 1,282  
Comparable RevPAR % D *     1.0 %      3.0 %

*Comparable RevPAR % D and Adjusted EBITDA % D is the outlook for the 599 hotels owned and operated by the Company as of February 27, 2018 for the full year 2017 and 2018. The 2018 total revenues and Adjusted EBITDA outlook includes approximately $1.4 million in contribution and $4 million in revenue from the 25 hotels sold in the first quarter 2018.

The 2018 outlook reflects the recent sale of the previously announced 25 hotel disposition in the first quarter of 2018, one hotel disposition in December 2017 and four hotel dispositions in May 2017, reflecting total lost contribution of approximately $16 million in Adjusted EBITDA and $36 million in total revenues. The Company’s 2018 outlook may change if further asset sales occur during the year. The Company’s capital expenditures outlook includes approximately $40 to $60 million for investments in ESA 2.0, including construction of new hotels, land acquisitions and other investments and approximately $30 to $40 million in IT capital investments.
