RLHC Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

Systemwide Same Store RevPAR Increases 3.4%

Acquired Vantage Hospitality Group

SPOKANE, Wash., Nov. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Red Lion Hotels Corporation ("RLHC" or the "company") (NYSE:RLH), a growing hospitality company that operates and franchises upscale, midscale and economy hotels, today reported third quarter 2016 results.

Highlights Third Quarter 2016

RLHC President and Chief Executive Officer Greg T. Mount stated, "We are very encouraged that RLHC delivered another quarter of strong RevPAR growth across all segments versus the industry, with system same store RevPAR growing 3.4% year over year.  These positive results can be attributed to the transformation the Company has undergone over the last 18 months.  Furthermore, with the recent addition of Vantage and more than 58,000 rooms to the system, we have already started selling our full spectrum of brands with immediate success, and the integration is progressing as planned.  Our transformation to an asset light franchise model is complete and our efforts to create additional long-term shareholder value are well underway."

Third Quarter 2016 Results

Systemwide same store midscale RevPAR grew 3.4%, and Adjusted EBITDA was $10.9 million in the quarter increasing by 25%.

Franchise hotels revenue reached $4.8 million, up 25% compared with the third quarter of 2015. Segment operating margins for the quarter improved significantly to 30% versus 12% in the same period of 2015.

Outperforming the industry, same store franchised economy RevPAR increased 7.8%, and same store franchised midscale increased 5.5%, driven primarily by the implementation of RevPak for both economy and midscale.

Comparable revenue from company operated hotels was $33.6 million, down 2%, compared with the same period a year ago.  RevPAR for company operated hotels was roughly flat, primarily due to the previously communicated disruption caused by our extensive renovation program.  Comparable company operated hotel gross profit was $13.4 million versus $13.7 million in the prior year.

Entertainment revenue for the third quarter was $1.9 million compared with $1.8 million in the prior year period. Segment operating income was $0.3 million versus $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2015.

Consolidated net income attributable to RLHC in the third quarter of 2016 nearly tripled to $2.3 million compared with $0.8 million in the same period a year ago.  Net income per share for the third quarter of 2016 was $0.11 versus $0.04 for the prior year period.

After adjusting for special items, adjusted net income per share for the third quarter 2016 was $0.24 versus $0.16 in 2015. The adjustments are related to costs associated with the Vantage acquisition and employee separation.

Balance Sheet

At September 30, 2016, the company had $18.9 million in cash and cash equivalents and $9.2 million in restricted cash.  Additionally, the company had consolidated long-term debt of $107.8 million, borrowed by the company's joint venture entities, of which RLHC's pro rata share was $61.7 million.

Capital expenditures for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 totaled $30.3 million; the majority of which was funded with proceeds from debt financing associated with the company's joint ventures.

Brand Portfolio Developments

For the year, RLHC has enjoyed accretive additions to its brand portfolio, along with the Vantage acquisition, that included openings, new franchises, conversions from non-RLHC brands and conversions from Red Lion Hotels to Hotel RLs within the system.  The company has executed more than 20 franchise agreements in 2016.

Properties opened since our second quarter earnings release include the following locations:

Vantage Acquisition

RLHC acquired substantially all of the assets of Vantage during the third quarter for cash and stock. Consideration for the acquisition consists of an initial payment of $23 million in cash and $5.8 million in stock.  There are potential additional payments of up to $7 million in cash and 690,000 shares of stock to be paid over the next twenty-four months, which are contingent on the achievement of certain performance metrics for the Vantage brands.

As a result of the acquisition, the Company added approximately 1,000 franchise hotel agreements and over 58,000 rooms in the U.S. and Canada.

The transaction is expected to be accretive to cash flow and earnings per share within the first twelve months.

Subsequent Events

On October 1, 2016, the Company's board of directors appointed Roger J. Bloss to the position of Executive Vice President and President of Global Development of RLHC.  In addition, the board of directors appointed Bernard "Bernie" T. Moyle as the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of RLHC.  Messrs. Bloss and Moyle joined RLHC from Vantage where they were Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating and Financial Officer, respectively.

2016 Outlook

The company is issuing refined financial guidance for full year 2016, based on the outlook for the markets in which they operate, and its current expectations:

The company is revising its full year RevPAR guidance for comparable company operated hotels to increase 0% to 1% over 2015.  The 2016 performance was unfavorably impacted by the renovations in the majority of its company operated hotels during the second and third quarters.

Comparable Operations and Data From Operations 
(unaudited) 
($ in thousands) 
          
Certain operating results for the periods included in this report are shown on a comparable hotel basis. Comparable hotels are defined as properties that were operated by our company for at least one full calendar year as of the beginning of the current period other than hotels for which comparable results were not available. Comparable results excludes one hotel that was converted from owned to managed, one hotel that was converted from owned to franchised and one hotel that was closed.  In addition, Hotel RL Baltimore, Hotel RL Washington DC, and Red Lion Hotel Atlanta International Airport are excluded as these properties have not been open since the beginning of both comparable periods. 
  
We utilize these comparable measures because management finds them a useful tool to perform more meaningful comparisons of past, present and future operating results and as a means to evaluate the results of core, ongoing operations. We believe they are a complement to reported operating results. Comparable operating results are not intended to represent reported operating results defined by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), and such information should not be considered as an alternative to reported information or any other measure of performance prescribed by GAAP.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

EBITDA is defined as net income (loss), before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We believe it is a useful financial performance measure due to the significance of our long-lived assets and level of indebtedness.
 
  
Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) are additional measures of financial performance. We believe that the inclusion or exclusion of certain special items, such as gains and losses on asset dispositions and impairments, is necessary to provide the most accurate measure of core operating results and as a means to evaluate comparative results. 
  
EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) are commonly used measures of performance in the industry. We utilize these measures because management finds them a useful tool to perform more meaningful comparisons of past, present and future operating results and as a means to evaluate the results of core, ongoing operations. We believe they are a complement to reported operating results. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) are not intended to represent net income (loss) defined by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), and such information should not be considered as an alternative to reported information or any other measure of performance prescribed by GAAP. In addition, other companies in our industry may calculate EBITDA and in particular Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) differently than we do or may not calculate them at all, limiting the usefulness of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income (loss) as comparative measures. 
           
The following is a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) for the periods presented:
