See tables later in this press release for a description of Same-Property information and reconciliations from net income (loss) to non-GAAP financial measures used in the table above and elsewhere in this press release.

“First-quarter bottom-line operating results surpassed the top of our outlook, largely driven by our intense focus on operating efficiencies and strong cost reduction efforts. Favorable top-line performance was led by the continued recovery of our urban hotels, especially those that were recently redeveloped and transformed. Additionally, the ramp-up of LaPlaya’s performance following its reopening post-Hurricane Ian has been very encouraging as it handily surpassed our initial expectations for the quarter. Furthermore, we’ve made significant progress in completing our multi-year, portfolio-wide strategic reinvestment program. Newport Harbor Island Resort, our flagship New England resort, is set to reopen soon following its closure for five months for a comprehensive property-wide redevelopment and upgrading. We are excited about the upcoming summer season. Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa just completed its major two-phase redevelopment, and we look forward to reintroducing this stunning luxury property to the market. Skamania Lodge’s expanded alternative lodging accommodations along the Columbia River Gorge are substantially complete, with the recent and upcoming introduction of new cabins, a new villa and five luxury glamping units.

“Looking ahead, we remain cautiously optimistic about the continued industry recovery, particularly the ongoing improvements in business travel and international inbound travel, and the ongoing recovery of our urban markets.”

Jon E. Bortz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust

See tables later in this press release for a description of Same-Property information and reconciliations from net income (loss) to non-GAAP financial measures, including Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (“EBITDA”), EBITDA for Real Estate (“EBITDAre”), Adjusted EBITDAre, Funds from Operations (“FFO”), FFO per share, Adjusted FFO and Adjusted FFO per share.

Adjusted EBITDAre, Adjusted FFO and Adjusted FFO per share exclude the amortization of share-based compensation expense. Historical and comparable period results of such non-GAAP financial measures have been adjusted to reflect the exclusion.

Includes information for all the hotels the Company owned as of March 31, 2024, except for the following:

  • LaPlaya Beach Resort & Club
  • Newport Harbor Island Resort

“Our urban hotels led our portfolio growth this quarter, with same-property occupancy increasing by 2 percentage points to 60% and average daily rate (ADR) rising by 0.6% to $267,” noted Mr. Bortz. “Total RevPAR at our urban hotels rose by 4.9%, while EBITDA climbed by 10% over the prior year period, primarily driven by moderating inflationary pressures and an intense focus on creating efficiencies and strong cost reduction efforts. Our urban portfolio outperformed the broader U.S. industry in the first quarter, with RevPAR growth of 4.9%, versus the industry’s urban growth of 2.6%, demonstrating the upside potential our recently redeveloped properties have moving forward. Looking ahead to the rest of 2024, the booking pace for groups remains healthy, particularly in the third and fourth quarters. Additionally, we expect solid improvements in RevPAR and market share at our recently repositioned and redeveloped properties, which continue to benefit from our now-completed multi-year strategic redevelopment program.”

Reopening of LaPlaya Beach Resort & Club

The Company is pleased to announce the successful substantial completion of the extensive post-hurricane reconstruction at the 189-room LaPlaya Beach Resort & Club in Naples, Florida. The restoration of the property’s 79-room Beach House was substantially completed in March, along with resort amenities including the spa, fitness center and extensive multi-pool complex. During the first quarter, the luxury resort’s operating performance surpassed expectations, driven by solid leisure and group demand and exceptional results from BALEEN, the resort’s oceanfront full-service restaurant, and the Beach Club.

Regarding insurance claims, the Company expects that all operational and physical disruptions will be covered under its business interruption and property insurance policies, net of deductibles. A preliminary settlement of $4 million for business interruption proceeds related to income losses in Q3 2023 was recorded in Q1 2024. The Company is currently forecasting an additional $7 million in business interruption proceeds throughout 2024, with approximately $4 million expected in Q2 and $3 million forecasted in the second half of 2024. These projections are incorporated into the Company’s 2024 Outlook. It is important to note that although business interruption proceeds will increase Adjusted EBITDA re and Adjusted FFO, it is not included in Same-Property Hotel EBITDA.

Capital Investments and Strategic Property Redevelopments

During the first quarter, the Company completed $33.9 million of capital investments throughout its portfolio, excluding capital expenditures related to the repair and rebuilding of LaPlaya. These investments relate to a number of our last remaining major property redevelopments, including:

  • The $49 million comprehensive redevelopment and transformation of Newport Harbor Island Resort into a luxury island resort, which is substantially complete and set to reopen soon;
  • the finalization of Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa’s $26 million redevelopment and repositioning, including fully renovated public areas, as well as adding a lobby bar and patio, outdoor meeting venues, an outdoor pool bar and grill, upgraded and additional cabanas, including new cabana rooms, and upgrades to the main ballroom, the Mustangs and Burros restaurant, and extensive public area landscaping, which was completed in mid-April; and
  • the progression of Skamania Lodge's $20 million phase 1 of its much larger master plan to introduce alternative lodging accommodations, including the recent completion of two new 2-bedroom cabins and one new 3-bedroom villa, and five first-of-their-kind luxury glamping units, which are expected to be completed and available to rent starting at the beginning of May. Other recent resort additions included a multi-million-dollar outdoor meeting and event venue adjacent to the resort’s new 18-hole putting course, three additional treehouses bringing the total number of treehouses to nine, and road and utility infrastructure for existing and future alternative accommodations.

Following the completion of these investments, virtually all of the Company's properties will have undergone recent major renovations or redevelopments. This will mark a transition to a period of significantly reduced capital investments planned for the next few years. The Company expects to invest a total of $85 to $90 million in the portfolio in 2024.

Since 2018, Pebblebrook has reinvested approximately $520 million in transforming its hotels and resorts, with over $280 million directed towards Return on Investment (“ROI”)-generating investments as part of the Company’s broader strategic redevelopment program. These investments have predominantly involved major overhauls and strategic repositionings, elevating the Company's properties to superior standards, and adding amenities and other revenue and profit-generating facilities, including remerchandising existing indoor and outdoor facilities. These ROI-focused projects are anticipated to yield substantial returns, aligning with the outcomes of past redevelopment and repositioning initiatives completed by the Company.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of March 31, 2024, the Company had $65.0 million in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash, plus $636.3 million of undrawn availability on its $650 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility. The Company’s current $2.2 billion of consolidated debt and convertible notes is well-structured, with an effective weighted-average interest rate of 4.6%. 75% of the combined debt and convertible notes is currently fixed at an effective weighted-average interest rate of 3.6%. The remaining 25% of the Company’s debt is currently floating at a weighted-average interest rate of 7.6%. In addition, approximately 91% of the Company’s outstanding debt is unsecured, and the weighted-average maturity of the Company’s debt is approximately 3.0 years. The Company has no meaningful debt maturities until Q4 2025.

Common and Preferred Dividends

On March 15, 2024, the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.01 per share on its common shares and a regular quarterly cash dividend for the following preferred shares of beneficial interest:

  • $0.39844 per 6.375% Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Share;
  • $0.39375 per 6.3% Series F Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Share;
  • $0.39844 per 6.375% Series G Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Share; and
  • $0.35625 per 5.7% Series H Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Share.

Update on Curator Hotel & Resort Collection

Curator Hotel & Resort Collection (“Curator”) is a curated collection of experientially focused small brands and independent lifestyle hotels and resorts worldwide founded by Pebblebrook and several industry-leading independent lifestyle hotel operators. As of March 31, 2024, Curator had approximately 105 member hotels and resorts and 117 master service agreements with preferred vendor partners. The master service agreements provide Curator member hotels with preferred pricing, enhanced operating terms, and early access to curated new technologies. Curator's mission is to support lifestyle hotels and resorts through its best-in-class operating agreements, services and technology, while helping properties amplify their independent brands and what makes them unique.

2024 Outlook

The Company's 2024 outlook, which does not assume any acquisitions or dispositions, incorporates planned capital investments and key assumptions, including an estimated $11.0 million in business interruption proceeds related to LaPlaya, which is incorporated into Adjusted EBITDA re and Adjusted FFO, but does not impact Same-Property Hotel EBITDA.

This forecast assumes stable travel conditions, unaffected by pandemics, major weather events, federal shutdowns, or deteriorating macro-economic factors. This forecast has been adjusted to exclude Newport Harbor Island Resort from Same-Property RevPAR, Same-Property Total Revenues, Same-Property Total Expenses, and Same-Property Hotel EBITDA for the second quarter of 2024, due to its closure for a portion of Q2.

Considerations Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company’s results of operations determined in accordance with GAAP.

Funds from Operations (“FFO”) - FFO represents net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains or losses from sales of properties, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships. The Company considers FFO a useful measure of performance for an equity REIT because it facilitates an understanding of the Company's operating performance without giving effect to real estate depreciation and amortization, which assume that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, the Company believes that FFO provides a meaningful indication of its performance. The Company also considers FFO an appropriate performance measure given its wide use by investors and analysts. The Company computes FFO in accordance with standards established by the Board of Governors of Nareit in its March 1995 White Paper (as amended in November 1999 and April 2002), which may differ from the methodology for calculating FFO utilized by other equity REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to that of other REITs. Further, FFO does not represent amounts available for management’s discretionary use because of needed capital replacement or expansion, debt service obligations or other commitments and uncertainties, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund the Company’s cash needs, including its ability to make distributions. The Company presents FFO per diluted share calculations that are based on the outstanding dilutive common shares plus the outstanding Operating Partnership units for the periods presented.

Earnings before Interest, Taxes, and Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA") - The Company believes that EBITDA provides investors a useful financial measure to evaluate its operating performance, excluding the impact of our capital structure (primarily interest expense) and our asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization).

Earnings before Interest, Taxes, and Depreciation and Amortization for Real Estate ("EBITDAre") - The Company believes that EBITDAre provides investors a useful financial measure to evaluate its operating performance, and the Company presents EBITDAre in accordance with Nareit guidelines, as defined in its September 2017 white paper "Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization for Real Estate." EBITDAre adjusts EBITDA for the following items, which may occur in any period, and refers to these measures as Adjusted EBITDAre: (1) gains or losses on the disposition of depreciated property, including gains or losses on change of control; (2) impairment write-downs of depreciated property and of investments in unconsolidated affiliates caused by a decrease in value of depreciated property in the affiliate; and (3) adjustments to reflect the entity's share of EBITDAre of unconsolidated affiliates.

The Company also evaluates its performance by reviewing Adjusted FFO and Adjusted EBITDAre because it believes that adjusting FFO to exclude certain recurring and non-recurring items described below provides useful supplemental information regarding the Company's ongoing operating performance and that the presentation of Adjusted FFO and Adjusted EBITDAre, when combined with the primary GAAP presentation of net income (loss), more completely describes the Company's operating performance. The Company adjusts FFO available to common share and unit holders for the following items, which may occur in any period, and refers to this measure as Adjusted FFO and Adjusted EBITDAre:

  • Transaction costs : The Company excludes transaction costs expensed during the period because it believes that including these costs in FFO does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company and its hotels.
  • Non-cash ground rent : The Company excludes the non-cash ground rent expense, which is primarily made up of the straight-line rent impact from a ground lease.
  • Management/franchise contract transition costs : The Company excludes one-time management and/or franchise contract transition costs expensed during the period because it believes that including these costs in FFO and Adjusted EBITDAre does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company and its hotels.
  • Interest expense adjustment for acquired liabilities : The Company excludes interest expense adjustment for acquired liabilities assumed in connection with acquisitions, because it believes that including these non-cash adjustments in FFO and Adjusted EBITDAre does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company.
  • Finance lease adjustment : The Company excludes the effect of non-cash interest expense from finance leases because it believes that including these non-cash adjustments in FFO and Adjusted EBITDAre does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company.
  • Non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles : The Company excludes the non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles, which includes but is not limited to the amortization of favorable and unfavorable leases or management agreements and above/below market real estate tax reduction agreements because it believes that including these non-cash adjustments in FFO and Adjusted EBITDAre does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company.
  • Non-cash interest expense, one-time operation suspension expenses, early extinguishment of debt, amortization of share-based compensation expense, issuance costs of redeemed preferred shares, and hurricane-related repairs costs : The Company excludes these items because the Company believes that including these adjustments in FFO does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company and its hotels.
  • One-time operation suspension expenses, amortization of share-based compensation expense, and hurricane-related costs : The Company excludes these items because it believes that including these costs in EBITDAre does not reflect the underlying financial performance of the Company and its hotels.

The Company presents weighted-average number of basic and fully diluted common shares and units by excluding the dilutive effect of shares issuable upon conversion of convertible debt.

The Company’s presentation of FFO and Adjusted EBITDAre as adjusted by the Company, should not be considered as an alternative to net income (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of the Company’s financial performance or to cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of its liquidity. The Company’s presentation of EBITDAre, and as adjusted by the Company, should not be considered as an alternative to net income (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of the Company’s financial performance or to cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of its liquidity.
