Extended Stay America’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Jonathan Halkyard, commented, “We are pleased with the strong progress we made in 2018, including achieving solid financial results, growing our pipeline to nearly 60 hotels, growing RevPAR primarily from our core extended stay guest, refranchising over 70 hotels and further de-levering the balance sheet.”

Mr. Halkyard continued, “Looking to 2019, on the backdrop of an expected stable macro environment, we plan to make significant progress on our growth strategy while evaluating options to enhance shareholder value.”

Financial and Operating Results

Total revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2018 were $289.7 million, a decrease of 4.2% over the same period in the prior year due to asset dispositions. Total room and other hotel revenues on a comparable Company-owned basis increased 0.9% for the quarter. Total revenues for the full year 2018 were $1,275.1 million, a decrease of 0.6% compared to 2017 due to asset dispositions. Total room and other hotel revenues on a comparable Company-owned basis increased 2.1% for the full year 2018 compared to the same period in 2017.

Comparable system-wide RevPAR for the three months ended December 31, 2018 grew 0.9% over the same period in 2017 to $47.38, driven by a 310 basis point increase in occupancy to 72.9%, partially offset by a decline in average daily rate (“ADR”) of 3.4%. Comparable Company-owned RevPAR increased 0.7% during the fourth quarter to $48.97. Total Company-owned RevPAR increased 3.9% during the quarter, reflecting the sales of non-core hotels and the increase in comparable Company-owned RevPAR. Comparable system-wide RevPAR for the full year 2018 grew 2.0% over 2017.

Hotel Operating Margin1for the three months ended December 31, 2018 was 51.1% compared to 53.0% in the same period in 2017.  The decline in Hotel Operating Margin was driven primarily by an increase in payroll, reservation, marketing and maintenance expenses. Hotel Operating Margin for the full year 2018 was 54.0% compared to 55.0% in 2017.

Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2018 was $39.4 million compared to $40.2 million in the same period in 2017, a decrease of 1.9%. The decline in net income was due to cycling an $11.9 million gain on asset dispositions in the same period in 2017 and a decline in Hotel Operating Margin, partially offset by lower interest expense, lower depreciation expense and a reduction in effective tax rate. Net income for the full year 2018 was $211.8 million compared to $172.2 million in 2017, an increase of 23.0%.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2018 was $126.6 million, a decline of 9.7% compared to the same period in 2017. The decline in Adjusted EBITDA was due primarily to asset dispositions in 2017 and 2018 resulting in lost contribution of $8.7 million as well as an increase in comparable hotel operating expenses. Adjusted EBITDA excludes non-cash equity-based compensation expense of $1.7 million and a $0.9 million gain on asset dispositions. Adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2018 was $599.7 million, a decline of 3.7% compared to 2017, primarily due to asset dispositions in 2017 and 2018 resulting in lost contribution of approximately $22.0 million in 2018 compared to 2017.  

Adjusted FFO for the three months ended December 31, 2018 was $77.8 million compared to $77.1 million in the same period in 2017. The increase in Adjusted FFO was primarily due to a lower effective tax rate. Adjusted FFO per diluted Paired Share was $0.41 compared to $0.40 in the same period in 2017, an increase of 3.0%. Adjusted FFO for the full year 2018 was $382.8 million compared to $357.1 million in 2017. Adjusted FFO per diluted Paired Share for the full year 2018 was $2.02 compared to $1.84 in 2017, an increase of 9.4%. Adjusted FFO, a non-GAAP measure, represents funds from operations, as adjusted, attributable to the consolidated enterprise, whose representative equity security is a Paired Share. A Paired Share entitles its holder to participate in 100% of the common equity and earnings of both Extended Stay America, Inc. and ESH Hospitality, Inc. 

Adjusted Paired Share Income for the three months ended December 31, 2018 was $38.6 million, or $0.21 per diluted Paired Share, compared to $36.2 million, or $0.19 per diluted Paired Share, in the same period in 2017, an increase of 9.2% per diluted Paired Share. The increase in Adjusted Paired Share Income per diluted Paired Share was due to a lower effective tax rate, lower depreciation expense and a reduction in share count as a result of Paired Share repurchases. Adjusted Paired Share Income for the full year 2018 was $216.4 million, or $1.14 per diluted Paired Share, compared to $192.9 million, or $1.00 per diluted Paired Share, in 2017, an increase of 14.4% per diluted Paired Share. Adjusted Paired Share Income, a non-GAAP measure, represents net income, as adjusted, attributable to the consolidated enterprise, whose representative equity security is a Paired Share. 

Capital Expenditures

The Company invested $61.7 million in capital expenditures during the fourth quarter of 2018. For the full year 2018, the Company invested $209.3 million in capital expenditures, including $47.8 million on new hotel builds and conversions and $11.9 million on renovations.

Asset Dispositions and Acquisitions

As previously announced, the Company completed the sale of one portfolio totaling 14 hotels during the fourth quarter for gross proceeds of $37.7 million, including prepaid franchise application and development fees. The portfolio sale comes with franchise agreements on all of the hotels sold and with agreements to develop or convert an additional seven Extended Stay America hotels.  For the full year 2018, the Company completed the sale of 72 hotels for gross proceeds of approximately $322.0 million, of which 71 are expected to remain in the system under long-term franchise or management agreements.
