Overview

Keith A. Cline, President & Chief Executive Officer of La Quinta, said, "We continued to make meaningful progress against the Company's strategic initiatives to drive consistency in our product and in the delivery of an outstanding guest experience, as well as to drive increased engagement with our brand. We saw positive comparable RevPAR growth and a significant improvement in Net Promoter Score this quarter, reflecting our investment in the guest experience.  On the development front, we continued to grow our current and future footprint by opening 15 new hotels, including La Quinta's first location in Colombia, South America, and by signing 21 new franchise agreements bringing our total pipeline to 239 hotels."

Mr. Cline continued, "System-wide comparable RevPAR grew 80 basis points and RevPAR index grew 18 basis points when compared to the same period last year. We also experienced high single digit RevPAR growth in several key markets. As we noted last quarter, the impact of the pullback in oil production has moderated in terms of year-over-year RevPAR comparisons, and our hotels in the oil markets continued to improve their overall market share. Our third quarter system-wide comparable RevPAR would have been up 2.0 percent as compared to last year, if we exclude the impact of the oil markets. We are proud of La Quinta's performance this quarter and remain confident that the strategic priorities and initiatives we are executing will drive brand performance as well as continued strong cash flow generation and long-term shareholder value."

The Company's system-wide portfolio, as of September 30, 2016, is located across 48 states in the U.S., as well as in Canada, Mexico, Honduras and Colombia. The portfolio includes:

Information based on the STR competitive set of hotels existing as of September 30, 2016.

Development

During the third quarter, the Company opened a total of 21 franchised hotels (2,000 rooms), including six temporary franchised hotels related to formerly owned hotels which are in the process of leaving the system.  These 21 openings, together with seven terminations, led us to a net growth of 14 franchised hotels. As of September 30, 2016, the Company had a pipeline of 239 franchised hotels totaling approximately 21,800 rooms, to be located in the United States, Mexico, Colombia, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Chile, and El Salvador. The Company believes this pipeline represents a significant embedded growth opportunity for the brand.

Owned Hotel Portfolio

During the third quarter of 2015, the Company entered into a definitive purchase and sale agreement for the sale of 24 of its owned hotels. Of these 24 hotels, 21 had closed as of the end of the third quarter of 2016, and the remaining three hotels closing after the end of the third quarter.  During the third quarter of 2016, the Company closed the sale of additional owned hotels located in Charleston, South Carolina, Georgetown, Texas, and Houston, Texas and entered into definitive purchase and sale agreements for the sale of five additional owned hotels located in Wayne, New Jersey, Elmsford, New York, Daytona Beach, Florida, Sulphur, Louisiana, and in The Woodlands-Houston, Texas.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of September 30, 2016, the Company had approximately $1.7 billion of outstanding indebtedness with a weighted average interest rate of approximately 4.3%, including the impact of an interest rate swap.  Total cash and cash equivalents was $148.2 million as of September 30, 2016.

Outlook

Based upon management's current estimates, the Company is revising its guidance for full year 2016. This revision reflects the Company's third quarter performance and adjusted expectations for the remainder of the year, as well as the impact of changes in the timing of owned assets leaving the system.

Please see the schedules to this press release for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Adjusted Net Income Attributable to La Quinta Holdings' stockholders.  A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the closest GAAP financial measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to impairment charges, gains or losses on sales of assets, and secondary offering expenses excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures.  These items could have a potentially unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

RECONCILIATIONS

The tables below provide a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income, a reconciliation of Adjusted Operating Income to Operating Income, a reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share to Net Income and Earnings Per Share, and a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Adjusted Net Income with respect to our outlook. We believe this financial information provides meaningful supplemental information. We further believe the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share provides meaningful information because it excludes the impact of certain special items and/or certain items that are not expected to have an ongoing effect on our operations. This represents how management views the business and reviews our operating performance. It is also used by management when publicly providing the business outlook. 

"EBITDA" and "Adjusted EBITDA." Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") is a commonly used measure in many industries. We adjust EBITDA when evaluating our performance because we believe that the adjustment for certain items, such as restructuring and acquisition transaction expenses, impairment charges related to long-lived assets, non-cash equity-based compensation, discontinued operations, and other items not indicative of ongoing operating performance, provides useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding our ongoing operating performance. We believe that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide useful information to investors about us and our financial condition and results of operations for the following reasons: (i) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are among the measures used by our management team to evaluate our operating performance and make day-to-day operating decisions; and (ii) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, lenders and other interested parties as a common performance measure to compare results or estimate valuations across companies in our industry.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized terms under GAAP, have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered either in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss), cash flow or other methods of analyzing our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our indebtedness;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect our tax expense or the cash requirements to pay our taxes;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect historical cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the impact on earnings or changes resulting from matters that we consider not to be indicative of our future operations;
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
  • other companies in our industry may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

Because of these limitations, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as discretionary cash available to us to reinvest in the growth of our business or as measures of cash that will be available to us to meet our obligations.

"Adjusted operating (loss) income" represents the Company's reported operating (loss) income, adjusted to exclude the impact of items not indicative of ongoing operating performance. Adjusted operating income (loss) is presented to provide additional perspective on underlying trends in the Company's operating results.

"Adjusted Net Income" and "Adjusted Earnings Per Share" are not recognized terms under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss), earnings per share, or other measures of financial performance or liquidity derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the Company's definitions of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share are included to assist investors in performing meaningful comparisons of past, present and future operating results and as a means of highlighting the results of the Company's ongoing operations in a comparable format.
