Extended Stay America’s President and Chief Executive Officer Bruce Haase, commented, “We are pleased with another strong quarter as we continue to outperform every industry benchmark, improving our RevPAR index by 40% against our closest competition during the fourth quarter. Through last week, Extended Stay America has now had 65 consecutive weeks of RevPAR index gains dating back to well before the pandemic, demonstrating the growing strength of our model relative to the overall lodging industry.”

“As we move into 2021, we are very excited about our growth prospects and opportunities. Today we unveiled our new brand segmentation strategy with the launch of the Extended Stay America Premier Suites brand, in addition to our core hotels to be branded as Extended Stay America Suites. And, we continue to see opportunities for growth from improvements to our commercial engine and operating performance as well as unlocking value in our REIT through accretive asset transactions.”

Financial and Operating Results

Total revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2020 were $259.3 million, a decrease of 8.8% over the same period in 2019 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. For the full year 2020, total revenues declined 14.4% to $1,042.3 million driven by the decrease in hotel revenues as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Comparable system-wide RevPAR for the three months ended December 31, 2020 declined 9.4% over the same period in 2019 to $42.46, driven by a 7.3% decline in Average Daily Rate (“ADR”) and a 170 basis point decrease in occupancy to 73.7%. Comparable system-wide RevPAR for the full year 2020 decreased 15.0% over 2019 to $42.91, driven by a 11.6% decline in ADR and a 300 basis point decrease in occupancy to 73.8%.  

Hotel Operating Margin for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was 42.5% compared to 48.3% in the same period in 2019 due a decrease in RevPAR caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and a slight increase in hotel operating expenses. Hotel operating expenses during the fourth quarter of 2020 increased by 2.5% from the same period in 2019 and were approximately flat on a comparable basis. Hotel Operating Margin for the full year 2020 was 44.5% compared to 51.8% in the same period of 2019, driven by a decrease in RevPAR due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was $65.7 million compared to net income of $23.8 million for the same period in 2019. The increase in net income was due to a gain on an asset sale, a decrease in corporate overhead expense and an income tax benefit, partially offset by a decline in Comparable system-wide RevPAR. Net income for the full year 2020 was $96.3 million, compared to net income of $165.1 million for the same period in 2019. The full year 2020 decrease in net income was driven by a decline in Comparable system-wide RevPAR, partially offset by a gain on an asset sale and an income tax benefit.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was $89.3 million, a decline of 17.9% compared to the same period in 2019. The decline in Adjusted EBITDA was due to a decline in Comparable system-wide RevPAR. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter excludes a $52.5 million gain on an asset sale, non-cash equity-based compensation expense of $1.9 million, $2.7 million in loss on disposal of assets and $0.2 million in other expenses. Adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2020 was $374.1 million compared to $535.0 million in the same period of 2019.

Adjusted FFO for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was $64.2 million, or $0.36 per diluted Paired Share, compared to $67.8 million, or $0.37 per diluted Paired Share in the same period in 2019. The decrease in Adjusted FFO per diluted Paired Share was due to a decline in Comparable system-wide RevPAR, partially offset by an income tax benefit and a reduction in Paired Shares outstanding. Adjusted FFO for the full year 2020 was $220.5 million, or $1.24 per diluted Paired Share, compared to $337.6 million, or $1.81 per diluted Paired Share, for the same period in 2019. 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, 2020 was $27.6 million, or $0.16 per diluted Paired Share, compared to $24.9 million in Adjusted Paired Share Income, or $0.14 per diluted Paired Share, for the same period in 2019. The increase in an Adjusted Paired Share Income per diluted Paired Share was due to an income tax benefit, a decrease in corporate overhead expense and a reduction in Paired Shares outstanding, partially offset by the decline in Comparable system-wide RevPAR. Adjusted Paired Share Income for the full year 2020 was $66.2 million, or $0.37 per diluted Paired Share, compared to $178.2 million, or $0.95 per diluted Paired Share, in the same period of 2019. 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.

RevPAR Index

RevPAR Index is stated as a percentage and calculated by comparing RevPAR for owned hotels or system-wide hotels to the aggregate RevPAR of a group of competing hotels generally in the same market. As such, RevPAR Index is only a measure of RevPAR relative to certain competing hotels and not a measure of our absolute RevPAR or profitability. We subscribe to STR, Inc. ("STR"), an independent third-party service, which collects and compiles the data used to calculate RevPAR Index. We select the competing hotels included in the RevPAR Index calculation subject to STR's guidelines. The competing hotels included in STR guidelines will generally include certain hotels that are not considered part of the extended stay lodging segment of the hospitality industry and, instead, fall within the category of short-term stay hotels. STR does not endorse the Company, or any other company, and STR data should not be viewed as investment advice or as a recommendation to take a particular course of action.

The Company believes these measures provide useful information to investors regarding our results of operations and allow investors to evaluate the ongoing operating performance of our hotels and facilitate comparisons between the Company and other lodging companies, hotel owners and capital-intensive companies, including those which include a REIT as part of their legal entity structure.

  (1) The Outlook with respect to income tax for the three months ended March 31, 2021, applies to absolute income tax benefit only. Due to (1) greater variability in forecasted results within the current year than in prior years and (2) a wider than usual range between the forecasted financial results of ESA, a taxable C-Corporation, and ESH REIT, a non-taxable real estate investment trust (in each case due to the volatility caused by the COVID-19 pandemic), the Outlook with respect to income tax for the three months ended March 31, 2021, does not apply to, or provide an outlook with respect to, the Company's effective tax rate or range of effective tax rates for the three months ended March 31, 2021.  
   
  (2) Includes loss on disposal of assets and non-operating (income) expense, including foreign currency transaction costs.
