Michael D. Barnello, President and Chief Executive Officer of LaSalle said, "Our second quarter results exceeded our expectations, as the industry and our portfolio benefitted from strong lodging demand. LaSalle took an important step this quarter to maximize shareholder value by entering into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Blackstone in an all-cash transaction. The transaction followed a thorough review of strategic alternatives and we believe it represents a compelling opportunity for LaSalle's shareholders, delivering a significant premium with immediate and certain cash value."

Second Quarter 2018 Results

  • Net Income: The Company's net income attributable to common shareholders was $32 million, which decreased by $24 million from the same period in 2017. The second quarter 2017 benefited from $11 million of gains from the sale of two assets last year.
  • RevPAR: The Company's second quarter 2018 RevPAR grew 1.7% to $231, driven by a 1.1% increase in average daily rate ("ADR") to $261 and an occupancy growth of 0.6% to 88.6%. Excluding the Company's hotels managed by Kimpton and Marriott, RevPAR increased 3.7% versus last year. For reference, Kimpton has been working on systems integration with the IHG platform throughout 2018, and Marriott has been doing the same with Starwood's former systems.
  • Hotel EBITDAre Margin: The Company's hotel EBITDAre margin was 37.4%.
  • Adjusted EBITDAre: The Company's adjusted EBITDAre was $108 million, which declined $2 million year-over-year. In the second quarter 2017, the Company earned $4 million of adjusted EBITDAre from assets sold in 2017.
  • Adjusted FFO: The Company generated adjusted FFO of $88 million, or $0.80 per diluted share/unit, compared to $92 million, or $0.81 per diluted share/unit, for the second quarter 2017.

Year-to-Date 2018 Results

  • Net Income: The Company's net income attributable to common shareholders was $20 million, which decreased by $111 million from the same period in 2017. During the first half of 2017, the Company sold five assets for a combined gain of $86 million, which distorts this comparison year-over-year.
  • RevPAR: The Company's first half 2018 RevPAR decreased 2.4% to $198, driven by a 1.0% reduction in ADR to $242 and an occupancy decline of 1.4% to 81.8%. Excluding the Company's hotels managed by Kimpton and Marriott, RevPAR was flat to last year.
  • Hotel EBITDAre Margin: The Company's hotel EBITDAre margin was 31.6%.
  • Adjusted EBITDAre: The Company's adjusted EBITDAre was $155 million, a decrease of $17 million from the first half of 2017. In the first half of 2017, the Company earned $7 million of adjusted EBITDAre from assets sold in 2017, negatively impacting the year-over-year comparison.
  • Adjusted FFO: The Company generated adjusted FFO of $126 million, or $1.12 per diluted share/unit, compared to $143 million, or $1.26 per diluted share/unit, for the first half of 2017.

Capital Investments: The Company invested $42 million of capital in its hotels in the second quarter. Since March, the Company has completed guestroom renovations at San Diego Paradise Point Resort & Spa, Hotel Spero, Harbor Court Hotel, The Heathman Hotel, Chamberlain West Hollywood, Montrose West Hollywood, and Westin Copley Place. The Company also completed lobby or restaurant renovations at Hotel Spero, Harbor Court Hotel, The Heathman Hotel, Chamberlain West Hollywood, Montrose West Hollywood, and Sofitel Washington, DC Lafayette Square. Additionally, the Company renovated its meeting space at Hotel Chicago and Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor.

Balance Sheet and Capital Markets Activities

  • Balance Sheet Summary as of June 30, 2018: The Company had total outstanding debt of $1.1 billion, and total net debt to trailing 12 month Corporate EBITDA (as defined in the financial covenant section of the Company's senior unsecured credit facility, adjusted for all cash and cash equivalents on its balance sheet) was 2.6 times. The Company's fixed charge coverage ratio was 5.2 times, and its weighted average interest rate for the second quarter was 3.3%. The Company had capacity of $773 million available on its credit facilities, in addition to $221 million of cash and cash equivalents on its balance sheet.
  • Share Repurchase Program: The Company has not repurchased any common shares under its share repurchase program since March 5, 2018.

Key West Impact Update: In the second quarter's adjusted EBITDAre, the Company recorded $1.3 million of business interruption proceeds related to losses in 2017 and 2018 following Hurricane Irma. Year-to-date through the second quarter, the Company collected $2.6 million of business interruption proceeds relating to Hurricane Irma. The Company will continue to process business interruption claims for both of the Key West properties.

Dividend: On June 15, 2018, the Company declared a second quarter 2018 dividend of $0.225 per common share.

Blackstone Transaction: As previously announced on May 21, 2018, LaSalle entered into a definitive agreement with affiliates of Blackstone Real Estate Partners VIII ("Blackstone"), under which Blackstone would acquire all outstanding common shares of LaSalle for $33.50 per share in an all-cash transaction valued at $4.8 billion (the "Blackstone Merger Agreement"). The transaction was unanimously approved by LaSalle's Board of Trustees after careful consideration of multiple proposals received. The Company remains committed to completing the transaction with Blackstone, which is subject to customary closing conditions, including the approval of LaSalle's shareholders. The LaSalle Board recommends that shareholders vote "FOR" the proposal to approve the merger and other transactions contemplated by the Blackstone Merger Agreement in advance of the special meeting of shareholders, which will be held on September 6, 2018. The transaction is expected to close within a week of the special meeting and is not contingent on receipt of financing.

2018 Outlook and Earnings Call: Given the pending transaction with Blackstone, the Company is not updating its outlook for the balance of 2018. The Company will not host an investor conference call this quarter.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company considers the non-GAAP measures of FFO (including FFO per share/unit), adjusted FFO (including adjusted FFO per share/unit), EBITDA, EBITDAre, adjusted EBITDAre and hotel EBITDAre to be key supplemental measures of the Company's performance and should be considered along with, but not as alternatives to, net income or loss as a measure of the Company's operating performance. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets 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, most real estate industry investors consider FFO, adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, adjusted EBITDAre and hotel EBITDAre to be helpful in evaluating a real estate company's operations.

FFO, adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, adjusted EBITDAre and hotel EBITDAre do not represent cash generated from operating activities as determined by GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income or loss, cash flows from operations or any other operating performance measure prescribed by GAAP. FFO, adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, adjusted EBITDAre and hotel EBITDAre are not measures of the Company's liquidity, nor are such measures indicative of funds available to fund the Company's cash needs, including its ability to make cash distributions. These measurements do not reflect cash expenditures for long-term assets and other items that have been or will be incurred. FFO, adjusted FFO, EBITDA, EBITDAre, adjusted EBITDAre and hotel EBITDAre may include funds that may not be available for management's discretionary use due to functional requirements to conserve funds for capital expenditures, property acquisitions and other commitments and uncertainties. To compensate for this, management considers the impact of these excluded items to the extent they are material to operating decisions or the evaluation of the Company's operating performance.

FFO

The white paper on FFO approved by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") defines FFO as net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains or losses from sales of properties and items classified by GAAP as extraordinary, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization and impairment writedowns, and after comparable adjustments for the Company's portion of these items related to unconsolidated entities and joint ventures. The Company computes FFO consistent with the standards established by NAREIT, which may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the term in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the current NAREIT definition differently than the Company.

With respect to FFO, the Company believes that excluding the effect of extraordinary items, real estate-related depreciation and amortization and impairments, and the portion of these items related to unconsolidated entities, all of which are based on historical cost accounting and which may be of limited significance in evaluating current performance, can facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs, even though FFO does not represent an amount that accrues directly to common shareholders. However, FFO may not be helpful when comparing the Company to non-REITs.

EBITDA and EBITDAre

EBITDA represents net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding interest expense, income tax, depreciation and amortization. The white paper "Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization for Real Estate" approved by NAREIT defines EBITDAre as net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding interest expense, income tax, depreciation and amortization, gains or losses on the disposition of depreciated property (including gains or losses on change of control), 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 after comparable adjustments for the Company's portion of these items related to unconsolidated affiliates. The Company computes EBITDAre consistent with the standards established by NAREIT, which may not be comparable to EBITDAre reported by other REITs that do not define the term in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the current NAREIT definition differently than the Company.

With respect to EBITDA, the Company believes that excluding the effect of non-operating expenses and non-cash charges, and the portion of these 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 amortization, 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 accrues directly to common shareholders. In addition, the Company believes the presentation of EBITDAre, which adjusts for certain additional items including gains on sale of property, allows for meaningful comparisons with other REITs and between periods and is more indicative of the ongoing performance of its assets.

Adjusted FFO and Adjusted EBITDAre

The Company presents adjusted FFO (including adjusted FFO per share/unit) and adjusted EBITDAre, which measures are adjusted for certain additional items, including impairment losses (to the extent included in EBITDAre), loss from extinguishment of debt, acquisition transaction costs, costs associated with management transitions or the departure of executive officers, costs associated with the recognition of issuance costs related to the redemption of preferred shares, non-cash ground rent and certain other items. The Company excludes these items as it believes it allows for meaningful comparisons with other REITs and between periods and is more indicative of the ongoing performance of its assets. As with FFO, EBITDA and EBITDAre, the Company's calculation of adjusted FFO and adjusted EBITDAre may be different from similar adjusted measures calculated by other REITs.

Hotel EBITDAre

The Company also presents hotel EBITDAre, which excludes the effect of corporate-level expenses, non-cash items, and the portion of these items related to unconsolidated entities. In addition, hotel EBITDAre is presented on a pro forma basis to include the results of operations of certain hotels under previous ownership acquired during the periods presented and exclude the results of operations of any hotels sold or closed for renovations during the periods presented. Results for the hotels for periods prior to the Company's ownership were provided by prior owners and have not been adjusted by the Company or audited by its auditors. The Company believes that presenting pro forma hotel EBITDAre, excluding the effect of corporate-level expenses, non-cash items, and the portion of these items related to unconsolidated entities, provides a more complete understanding of the operating results over which the individual hotels and operators have direct control. The Company believes these property-level results provide investors with supplemental information on the ongoing operational performance of each of the hotels and the effectiveness of the third-party management companies operating the Company's business on a property-level basis.
