1 See “Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for an explanation of non-GAAP measures included in this release (i.e., Hotel Operating Profit, Hotel Operating Margin, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Funds From Operations (“FFO”), Adjusted FFO, Adjusted FFO per diluted Paired Share, Paired Share Income, Adjusted Paired Share Income and Adjusted Paired Share Income per diluted Paired Share).

Financial and Operating Results

Total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2020 were $285.9 million, a decrease of 14.1% over the same period in 2019 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Total revenues for the first nine months of 2020 were $783.0 million, a decrease of 16.2% compared to the same period in 2019.

Comparable system-wide RevPAR for the three months ended September 30, 2020 declined 14.7% over the same period in 2019 to $46.75, driven by a 13.7% decline in Average Daily Rate (“ADR”) and a 100 basis point decrease in occupancy to 79.8%. Comparable system-wide RevPAR year over year percentage change improved each month during the third quarter. Comparable system-wide RevPAR for the first nine months of 2020 declined 16.9% to $43.06.

Hotel Operating Margin for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was 47.3% compared to 53.8% in the same period in 2019 due a decrease in RevPAR caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Hotel operating expenses during the third quarter of 2020 declined by 2.5% from the same period in 2019, or approximately 3.5% on a comparable basis. Hotel Operating Margin for the first nine months of 2020 was 45.1% compared to 52.9% 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 September 30, 2020 was $31.5 million compared to net income of $53.2 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease in net income was due to a decline in Comparable system-wide RevPAR, partially offset by an income tax benefit, lower net interest expense, and lower hotel operating expenses. Net income for the first nine months of 2020 was $30.6 million, compared to net income of $141.3 million for the same period in 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was $112.7 million, a decline of 27.9% 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 non-cash equity-based compensation expense of $1.7 million, $1.3 million in loss on disposal of assets and $0.8 million in other expenses. Adjusted EBITDA for the first nine months of 2020 was $284.8 million compared to $426.3 million in the same period of 2019.

Adjusted FFO for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was $70.7 million, or $0.40 per diluted Paired Share, compared to $101.5 million, or $0.54 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, lower net interest expense and a reduction in Paired Shares outstanding. Adjusted FFO for the first nine months of 2020 was $156.4 million, or $0.88 per diluted Paired Share, compared to $269.8 million, or $1.43 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 September 30, 2020 was $33.1 million, or $0.19 per diluted Paired Share, compared to $62.6 million in Adjusted Paired Share Income, or $0.33 per diluted Paired Share, for the same period in 2019. The decrease in Adjusted Paired Share Income per diluted Paired Share was due to the decline in Comparable System-wide RevPAR, partially offset an income tax benefit, lower net interest expense and a reduction in Paired Shares outstanding. Adjusted Paired Share Income for the first nine months of 2020 was $38.6 million, or $0.22 per diluted Paired Share, compared to $153.3 million, or $0.81 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.

Capital Expenditures and Balance Sheet

The Company invested $39.6 million in capital expenditures during the third quarter of 2020. This included $2.9 million in renovation capital and $16.7 million in capital for hotel development. For the first nine months of 2020, the Company invested $144.9 million in capital expenditures.

As of September 30, 2020, the Company had $396.4 million in cash and equivalents, including $14.9 million in restricted cash, and total debt outstanding was $2.73 billion. The Company repaid its $350.0 million revolver at ESH Hospitality, Inc. in full during the third quarter due to the strong increases in RevPAR compared to earlier in the pandemic and the improvement in free cash flow in recent months. Excluding the $350 million revolver repayment made in the third quarter, the Company increased its cash position by $63.9 million despite its investments in renovations and hotel development.

Hotel and Development Pipeline

As of September 30, 2020, the Company had a pipeline of 65 hotels representing approximately 7,900 rooms. One Company-owned hotel and one franchised hotel opened during the third quarter, resulting in a total of 8 system-wide hotels opened in the first nine months of 2020.

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, the 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.

Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

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. The Non-GAAP Financial Measures are not recognized terms under U.S. GAAP.  These measures as presented may not be comparable to measures calculated by other companies.

(1) The 2020 Outlook with respect to income tax applies to absolute income tax benefit only. Due to (1) certain provisions of the CARES Act related to income tax relief, (2) greater variability in forecasted results within the current year than in prior years and (3) a wider than usual range between the forecasted financial results of ESA, a taxable C-Corp, and ESH REIT, a non-taxable real estate investment trust (in each case due to the volatility in our performance caused by the COVID-19 pandemic), the 2020 Outlook with respect to income tax 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 year ended December 31, 2020.  
 
(2) In light of the growth of our franchise business and in order to enhance comparability, effective January 1, 2020, the Company adopted the practice of other lodging companies with franchise businesses of excluding system services (profit) loss, net from Adjusted EBITDA; no adjustments have been made to prior period results. System services loss, net for the year ended December 31, 2019, was $2.2 million.  
(3) Includes loss on disposal of assets and non-operating (income) expense, including foreign currency transaction costs.
