  • RevPAR. Room revenue per available room (“RevPAR”) for the Company’s wholly-owned properties during the third quarter 2012 increased 10.0 percent over the third quarter 2011 to $80.15 as a result of a 3.6 percent increase in occupancy and a 6.2 percent increase in average daily rate (“ADR”).
  • Hotel EBITDA. The Company generated hotel EBITDA of approximately $5.2 million during the third quarter 2012, an increase of 23.3 percent or approximately $1.0 million over the third quarter 2011. Hotel EBITDA margin increased 275 basis points to 24.0 percent compared to the same period in 2011.
  • Adjusted EBITDA. The Company generated adjusted EBITDA of approximately $4.4 million during the third quarter 2012, an increase of 20.3 percent or approximately $0.7 million over the third quarter 2011.
  • Adjusted FFO. The Company generated adjusted FFO of approximately $1.9 million during the third quarter 2012, an increase of 127.7 percent or approximately $1.1 million over the third quarter 2011.

Andrew M. Sims, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MHI Hospitality Corporation, commented, “Our strong operating performance continued in the third quarter with robust year-over-year increases in RevPAR, Hotel EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. We more than doubled Adjusted FFO from the prior year’s third quarter, representing a 127.7% increase. We continued the process of restructuring our balance sheet by securing a new loan on our Jacksonville property with favorable terms. Overall, we had a very strong quarter.”

Financing Transactions

On July 10, 2012, the Company obtained a $14.3 million mortgage with Fifth Third Bank on the Crowne Plaza Jacksonville Riverfront hotel property. The mortgage carries an interest rate of LIBOR plus additional interest of 3.00% and amortizes on a 25-year schedule. The maturity date is July 10, 2015, but may be extended for an additional year pursuant to certain terms and conditions. The mortgage also contains an “earn-out” feature which allows for an additional $3.0 million in proceeds to be funded during its term, contingent upon satisfaction of certain debt service coverage and loan-to-value covenants. Proceeds of the mortgage were used to repay the existing mortgage indebtedness and to pay closing costs.

Balance Sheet/Liquidity

At September 30, 2012, the Company had approximately $11.2 million of available cash and cash equivalents, of which approximately $2.8 million is reserved for real estate taxes, capital improvements and certain other expenses or otherwise restricted. The Company had approximately $154.9 million in outstanding debt at a weighted average interest rate of approximately 5.62%. At September 30, 2012, the Company also had $7.0 million of availability under its existing Note Agreement with Essex Equity High Income Joint Investment Vehicle, LLC.

2012 Outlook

The Company is updating its previous guidance for 2012 accounting for current and expected performance within its portfolio as well as holding period gains and losses related to the warrant issued in its preferred equity financing. The guidance is predicated on continued strengthening of the economy and expected improvements in hotel lodging industry fundamentals and is based on estimates of occupancy and average daily rates that are consistent with most recent calendar year 2012 forecasts by Smith Travel Research for the market segments in which the Company operates.

The table below reflects the Company’s updated projections, within a range, of various financial measures for 2012:

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company considers the non-GAAP measures of FFO (including FFO per share), EBITDA and hotel EBITDA to be key supplemental measures of the Company’s performance and should be considered along with, not alternatives to, net income (loss) as a measure of the Company’s performance. These measures do not represent cash generated from operating activities determined by GAAP or amounts available for the Company’s discretionary use and should not be considered alternative measures of net income, cash flows from operations or any other operating performance measure prescribed by GAAP.

FFO

Industry analysts and investors use Funds from Operations, FFO, as a supplemental operating performance measure of an equity REIT. FFO is calculated in accordance with the definition adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”). FFO, as defined by NAREIT, represents net income or loss determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding extraordinary items as defined under GAAP and gains or losses from sales of previously depreciated operating real estate assets, plus certain non-cash items such as real estate asset depreciation and amortization, and after adjustment for any noncontrolling interest from unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many investors and analysts have considered the presentation of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by itself.

The Company considers FFO to be a useful measure of adjusted net income (loss) for reviewing comparative operating and financial performance because we believe FFO is most directly comparable to net income (loss), which remains the primary measure of performance, because by excluding gains or losses related to sales of previously depreciated operating real estate assets and excluding real estate asset depreciation and amortization, FFO assists in comparing the operating performance of a company’s real estate between periods or as compared to different companies. Although FFO is intended to be a REIT industry standard, other companies may not calculate FFO in the same manner as we do, and investors should not assume that FFO as reported by us is comparable to FFO as reported by other REITs.

EBITDA

The Company believes that excluding the effect of non-operating expenses and non-cash charges, and the portion of those items related to unconsolidated entities, all of which are also based on historical cost accounting and may be of limited significance in evaluating current performance, can help eliminate the accounting effects of depreciation and financing decisions and facilitate comparisons of core operating profitability between periods and between REITs, even though EBITDA also does not represent an amount that accrued directly to shareholders.

Hotel EBITDA

The Company believes that excluding the effect of corporate-level expenses and non-cash items, and the portion of these items that relate to unconsolidated entities, provides a more complete understanding of the operating results over which individual hotels and operators have direct control. We believe property-level results provide investors with supplemental information on the on-going operational performance of our hotels and the effectiveness of third-party management companies operating our business on a property-level basis. The Company previously reported Hotel EBITDA as Adjusted Operating Income.

Adjusted FFO and Adjusted EBITDA

The Company presents adjusted FFO, including adjusted FFO per share and unit, and adjusted EBITDA, which adjusts for certain additional items including any unrealized gain (loss) on its hedging instruments or warrant derivative, impairment losses, losses on early extinguishment of debt, aborted offering costs, costs associated with the departure of executive officers and acquisition transaction costs. The Company excludes these items as it believes it allows for meaningful comparisons between periods and among other REITs and is more indicative of the on-going performance of its business and assets. The Company’s calculation of adjusted FFO and adjusted EBITDA may be different from similar measures calculated by other REITs.
