John Murray, President and Chief Operating Officer of HPT, made the following statement regarding today's announcement:

“HPT’s second quarter 2017 comparable hotel RevPAR declined by 0.3% compared to the same period last year due to various factors including a continued sluggish economy and room supply growth. Nonetheless, we had continued high occupancy, increases in average daily rate and solid coverage of our minimum returns. Also, our TA properties generated solid performance this quarter with both fuel and non-fuel margins increasing versus the same period last year and steady rent coverage despite rent increases of over 5%.”

  • Marriott Agreements: As of June 30, 2017, 122 of HPT’s hotels were operated by subsidiaries of Marriott International, Inc. (Nasdaq: MAR), or Marriott, under three agreements. HPT’s Marriott No. 1 agreement includes 53 hotels, and provides for annual minimum return payments to HPT of $69.0 million as of June 30, 2017 (approximately $17.3 million per quarter). Because there is no guarantee or security deposit for this agreement, the minimum returns HPT receives under this agreement are limited to available hotel cash flows after payment of operating expenses and funding of a FF&E reserve. During the three months ended June 30, 2017, HPT realized returns under its Marriott No. 1 agreement of $20.4 million. HPT’s Marriott No. 234 agreement includes 68 hotels and requires annual minimum returns to HPT of $106.4 million as of June 30, 2017 (approximately $26.6 million per quarter). During the three months ended June 30, 2017, HPT realized returns under its Marriott No. 234 agreement of $26.6 million. HPT’s Marriott No. 234 agreement is partially secured by a security deposit and a limited guarantee from Marriott; during the three months ended June 30, 2017, the available security deposit was replenished by $5.6 million from a share of hotel cash flows in excess of the minimum returns due to HPT for the period. At June 30, 2017, the available security deposit from Marriott for the Marriott No. 234 agreement was $22.3 million and there was $30.7 million remaining under Marriott’s guaranty for up to 90% of the minimum returns due to HPT to cover future payment shortfalls if and after the available security deposit is depleted. HPT's Marriott No. 5 agreement includes one resort hotel in Kauai, HI which is leased to Marriott on a full recourse basis. The contractual rent due to HPT for this hotel for the three months ended June 30, 2017 of $2.5 million was paid to HPT.
  • InterContinental Agreement: As of June 30, 2017, 97 of HPT’s hotels were operated by subsidiaries of InterContinental under one agreement requiring annual minimum returns and rents to HPT of $181.5 million (approximately $45.4 million per quarter). During the three months ended June 30, 2017, HPT realized returns and rents under its InterContinental agreement of $46.9 million. HPT’s InterContinental agreement is partially secured by a security deposit. During the three months ended June 30, 2017, the available security deposit was replenished by $7.5 million from a share of hotel cash flows in excess of the minimum returns due to HPT for the period. In connection with the June 2017 acquisition of the Crowne Plaza hotel described above, InterContinental provided HPT with $7.1 million to supplement the existing security deposit. At June 30, 2017, the available InterContinental security deposit which HPT held to pay future payment shortfalls was $98.3 million.

HPT also leases 48 vacation units in one of the hotels to Wyndham Vacation Resorts, Inc., a subsidiary of Wyndham, which requires annual minimum rent of $1.4 million (approximately $0.4 million per quarter). The guarantee provided by Wyndham with respect to the lease is unlimited. The guarantee provided by Wyndham with respect to the management agreement is limited to $35.7 million and as of December 31, 2016, $1.1 million remained available to cover payment shortfalls of minimum returns due to HPT under the management agreement. During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the hotels under this agreement generated cash flows that were less than the minimum returns due to HPT and the remaining guaranty was depleted. As of August 8, 2017, all amounts due to HPT under the management agreement and the lease have been paid to HPT.
  • Carlson Agreement: As of June 30, 2017, 11 of HPT's hotels were operated under a management agreement with Carlson Hotels Worldwide, or Carlson, that, prior to the amendment described below, was scheduled to expire in 2030 and required annual minimum returns of $12.9 million as of June 30, 2017 (approximately $3.2 million per quarter). Minimum returns due to HPT are partially guaranteed under the Carlson agreement. In June 2017, HPT amended its agreement with Carlson whereby HPT and Carlson agreed to pursue the sale of three hotels with an aggregate of 511 rooms and an aggregate net book value of $14.1 million as of June 30, 2017. As described above, HPT sold one of these hotels in August 2017 and entered into an agreement in July 2017 to sell a second of these hotels. The net proceeds from the sales of these three hotels will be used to fund certain renovations to the remaining hotels operated under the Carlson agreement and HPT has agreed to fund up to $35.0 million for renovation costs in excess of the net sales proceeds and available FF&E reserves for those remaining hotels. HPT's annual minimum return and the limited guarantee cap under the Carlson agreement will increase by 8% of any amounts HPT funds (excluding the net sales proceeds described above). In addition, the initial term of the management agreement and the limited guarantee provided by Carlson were extended to December 31, 2035. The payments due to HPT under this agreement for the three months ended June 30, 2017 were paid to HPT.

In December 2016, HPT advised Morgans that the closing of its merger with SBE Entertainment Group, LLC, or SBE, without HPT's consent was in violation of the Morgans agreement, and HPT filed an action in California for unlawful detainer against Morgans and SBE. HPT is in discussions with Morgans and SBE regarding this matter and is pursuing remedies, which may include terminating the Morgans agreement. As of August 8, 2017, all scheduled rent payments due to HPT under the lease have been paid.

Minimum returns due to HPT are partially guaranteed under the Hyatt agreement. There is no guarantee or security deposit for the Sonesta agreement and the minimum returns HPT receives under that agreement are limited to available hotel cash flows after payment of operating expenses. The payments due to HPT under these agreements for the three months ended June 30, 2017 were paid to HPT.
  • Travel Center Agreements: As of June 30, 2017, HPT’s 199 travel centers located along the U.S. Interstate Highway system were leased to TA under five lease agreements, which require aggregate annual minimum rents of $280.7 million (approximately $70.2 million per quarter).

WARNING CONCERNING FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

THIS PRESS RELEASE CONTAINS STATEMENTS THAT CONSTITUTE FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS WITHIN THE MEANING OF THE PRIVATE SECURITIES LITIGATION REFORM ACT OF 1995 AND OTHER SECURITIES LAWS. ALSO, WHENEVER HPT USES WORDS SUCH AS “BELIEVE”, “EXPECT”, “ANTICIPATE”, “INTEND”, “PLAN”, “ESTIMATE”, "WILL", “MAY” AND NEGATIVES OR DERIVATIVES OF THESE OR SIMILAR EXPRESSIONS, HPT IS MAKING FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS. THESE FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS ARE BASED UPON HPT’S PRESENT INTENT, BELIEFS OR EXPECTATIONS, BUT FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS ARE NOT GUARANTEED TO OCCUR AND MAY NOT OCCUR. ACTUAL RESULTS MAY DIFFER MATERIALLY FROM THOSE CONTAINED IN OR IMPLIED BY HPT’S FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS AS A RESULT OF VARIOUS FACTORS. FOR EXAMPLE:

  • AS OF JUNE 30, 2017, APPROXIMATELY 79% OF HPT’S AGGREGATE ANNUAL MINIMUM RETURNS AND RENTS WERE SECURED BY GUARANTEES OR SECURITY DEPOSITS FROM HPT’S MANAGERS AND TENANTS. THIS MAY IMPLY THAT THESE MINIMUM RETURNS AND RENTS WILL BE PAID. IN FACT, CERTAIN OF THESE GUARANTEES AND SECURITY DEPOSITS ARE LIMITED IN AMOUNT AND DURATION AND ALL THE GUARANTEES ARE SUBJECT TO THE GUARANTORS’ ABILITY AND WILLINGNESS TO PAY. FURTHER, WYNDHAM'S GUARANTEE OF THE MINIMUM RETURNS DUE FROM HPT'S HOTELS THAT ARE MANAGED BY WYNDHAM WAS DEPLETED AS OF JUNE 30, 2017. HPT DOES NOT KNOW WHETHER WYNDHAM WILL CONTINUE TO PAY THE MINIMUM RETURNS DUE TO HPT DESPITE THE DEPLETED GUARANTEE OR IF WYNDHAM WILL DEFAULT ON ITS PAYMENTS. THE BALANCE OF HPT’S ANNUAL MINIMUM RETURNS AND RENTS AS OF JUNE 30, 2017 WAS NOT GUARANTEED NOR DOES HPT HOLD A SECURITY DEPOSIT WITH RESPECT TO THOSE AMOUNTS. HPT CANNOT BE SURE OF THE FUTURE FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE OF HPT’S PROPERTIES AND WHETHER SUCH PERFORMANCE WILL COVER HPT’S MINIMUM RETURNS AND RENTS, WHETHER THE GUARANTEES OR SECURITY DEPOSITS WILL BE ADEQUATE TO COVER FUTURE SHORTFALLS IN THE MINIMUM RETURNS OR RENTS DUE TO HPT, OR REGARDING HPT’S MANAGERS’, TENANTS’ OR GUARANTORS’ FUTURE ACTIONS IF AND WHEN THE GUARANTEES AND SECURITY DEPOSITS EXPIRE OR ARE DEPLETED OR THEIR ABILITY OR WILLINGNESS TO PAY MINIMUM RETURNS AND RENTS OWED TO HPT. MOREOVER, THE SECURITY DEPOSITS HELD BY HPT ARE NOT SEGREGATED FROM HPT’S OTHER ASSETS AND THE APPLICATION OF SECURITY DEPOSITS TO COVER PAYMENT SHORTFALLS WILL RESULT IN HPT RECORDING INCOME, BUT WILL NOT RESULT IN HPT RECEIVING ADDITIONAL CASH,
  • MR. MURRAY NOTES IN THIS PRESS RELEASE THAT HPT'S COMPARABLE HOTEL REVPAR DECLINED 0.3% IN THE SECOND QUARTER OF 2017 DUE TO VARIOUS FACTORS AND THAT HPT'S TRAVEL CENTER PROPERTIES GENERATED SOLID PERFORMANCE FOR THE SECOND QUARTER. HPT'S COMPARABLE HOTEL REVPAR MAY DECLINE FURTHER IN FUTURE PERIODS AND HPT'S TRAVEL CENTER PERFORMANCE MAY DECLINE IN FUTURE PERIODS DUE TO VARIOUS FACTORS INCLUDING COMPETITIVE PRESSURES, CONTINUED OR INCREASED REDUCTIONS IN TRUCKING FREIGHT VOLUMES AND INCREASED FUEL EFFICIENCY OF TRUCK ENGINES AND ADOPTION OF ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORTATION TECHNOLOGIES IN THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY,
  • HPT HAS ADVISED MORGANS THAT THE CLOSING OF ITS MERGER WITH SBE WAS IN VIOLATION OF HPT'S AGREEMENT WITH MORGANS, HPT HAS FILED AN ACTION FOR UNLAWFUL DETAINER AGAINST MORGANS AND SBE TO COMPEL MORGANS AND SBE TO SURRENDER POSSESSION OF THE SAN FRANCISCO HOTEL WHICH MORGANS HISTORICALLY LEASED FROM HPT, AND HPT IS IN DISCUSSIONS WITH MORGANS AND SBE REGARDING THIS MATTER. THE OUTCOME OF THIS PENDING LITIGATION AND OF THESE DISCUSSIONS WITH MORGANS AND SBE IS NOT ASSURED, BUT HPT BELIEVES MORGANS MAY SURRENDER POSSESSION OF THIS HOTEL OR THAT THE COURT WILL DETERMINE THAT MORGANS AND SBE HAVE BREACHED THE HISTORICAL LEASE. HPT ALSO BELIEVES THAT THIS HOTEL MAY REQUIRE SUBSTANTIAL CAPITAL INVESTMENT TO REMAIN COMPETITIVE IN ITS MARKET. THE CONTINUATION OF THIS DISPUTE WITH MORGANS AND SBE REQUIRES HPT TO EXPEND LEGAL FEES AND HPT BELIEVES THE RESULT OF THIS DISPUTE MAY CAUSE SOME LOSS OF RENT AT LEAST UNTIL THIS HOTEL MAY BE RENOVATED AND OPERATIONS IMPROVE. LITIGATION AND DISPUTES WITH TENANTS OFTEN PRODUCE UNEXPECTED RESULTS AND HPT CAN PROVIDE NO ASSURANCE REGARDING THE RESULTS OF THIS DISPUTE,
  • HPT HAS ENTERED INTO AGREEMENTS TO ACQUIRE 15 HOTELS FOR AN AGGREGATE PURCHASE PRICE OF $182.0 MILLION, EXCLUDING ACQUISITION RELATED COSTS, AND HPT EXPECTS TO COMPLETE THESE TRANSACTIONS DURING THE THIRD QUARTER OF 2017 AND TO ADD THESE HOTELS TO ITS EXISTING MANAGEMENT AGREEMENTS WITH INTERCONTINENTAL AND SONESTA.

  • HPT HAS ENTERED INTO AN AGREEMENT TO SELL A HOTEL FOR A SALES PRICE OF $6.6 MILLION, EXCLUDING CLOSING COSTS, AND HPT EXPECTS TO COMPLETE THIS TRANSACTION DURING THE THIRD QUARTER OF 2017. THIS TRANSACTION IS SUBJECT TO CONDITIONS. THESE CONDITIONS MAY NOT BE SATISFIED. AS A RESULT, THIS SALE MAY NOT OCCUR, MAY BE DELAYED OR ITS TERMS MAY CHANGE,
  • HPT AND CARLSON HAVE AGREED TO PURSUE THE SALE OF A THIRD HOTEL THAT CARLSON MANAGES. HOWEVER, HPT MAY NOT SUCCEED IN SELLING THIS HOTEL AND ANY SALE IT MAY COMPLETE MAY BE FOR A PRICE BELOW ITS CARRYING VALUE, AND
  • HPT AND CARLSON HAVE AGREED THAT THE NET PROCEEDS FROM THE SALE OF THREE HOTELS THEY HAVE AGREED TO PURSUE SELLING WILL BE USED TO FUND CERTAIN RENOVATIONS AT CERTAIN OF THE REMAINING HOTELS CARLSON MANAGES FOR HPT. HPT HAS ALSO AGREED TO FUND AN ADDITIONAL $35 MILLION FOR RENOVATION COSTS FOR THOSE OTHER CARLSON MANAGED HOTELS IN EXCESS OF THE NET SALES PROCEEDS FROM THE SALES OF THE THREE HOTELS AND AVAILABLE FF&E RESERVES. THE COMMITMENT TO FUND RENOVATIONS MAY IMPLY AN EXPECTATION THAT THE OPERATING RESULTS OF THE APPLICABLE HOTELS WILL IMPROVE AS A RESULT OF THOSE RENOVATIONS. HOWEVER, HPT CANNOT BE SURE THAT THE PERFORMANCE OF THOSE HOTELS WOULD IMPROVE AND THEY COULD DECLINE WHILE THE RENOVATIONS ARE BEING PERFORMED AND THEREAFTER. FURTHER, THE COSTS TO COMPLETE THE RENOVATIONS COULD BE GREATER, AND THE TIME TO COMPLETE THE RENOVATIONS COULD TAKE LONGER, THAN EXPECTED.

(1) At June 30, 2017, HPT owned 310 hotels; 307 of these hotels were managed by hotel operating companies and three hotels were leased to hotel operating companies. At June 30, 2017, HPT also owned 199 travel centers; all 199 of these travel centers were leased to a travel center operating company under five lease agreements. HPT’s condensed consolidated statements of income include hotel operating revenues and expenses of managed hotels and rental income from its leased hotels and travel centers. The net operating results of HPT’s managed hotel portfolios exceeded the minimum returns due to HPT in both the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016. Certain of HPT's managed hotels had net operating results that were, in the aggregate, $14,299 and $11,544 less than the minimum returns due to HPT in the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively. When the managers of these hotels fund the shortfalls under the terms of HPT’s operating agreements or their guarantees, HPT reflects such fundings (including security deposit applications) in its condensed consolidated statements of income as a reduction of hotel operating expenses. There was no reduction to hotel operating expenses in the three months ended June 30, 2017 or 2016 and reductions of $3,716 and $1,766 in the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, as a result of such fundings. HPT had shortfalls at certain of its managed hotel portfolios not funded by the managers of these hotels under the terms of its operating agreements of $10,583 and $9,778 in the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, which represent the unguaranteed portions of HPT's minimum returns from Sonesta. Certain of HPT’s managed hotel portfolios had net operating results that were, in the aggregate, $36,559 and $43,440 more than the minimum returns due to HPT in the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, and $36,724 and $46,918 more than the minimum returns due to HPT in the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively. Certain guarantees to HPT and security deposits held by HPT may be replenished by a share of these excess cash flows from the applicable hotel operations pursuant to the terms of the respective operating agreements or the guarantees. When these guarantees and security deposits are replenished by cash flows from hotel operations, HPT reflects such replenishments in its condensed consolidated statements of income as an increase to hotel operating expenses. Hotel operating expenses were increased by $14,682 and $20,057 in the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, and $13,240 and $19,968 in the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, as a result of such replenishments.

(2) Rental income includes $3,113 and $3,693 in the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, and $6,121 and $7,445 in the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, of adjustments necessary to record scheduled rent increases under certain of HPT’s leases, the deferred rent obligations under HPT’s travel center leases and the estimated future payments to HPT under its travel center leases for the cost of removing underground storage tanks on a straight line basis.

(3) Various percentages of total sales at certain of HPT’s hotels are escrowed as reserves for future renovations or refurbishment, or FF&E reserve escrows. HPT owns all the FF&E reserve escrows for its hotels. HPT reports deposits by its tenants into the escrow accounts under its hotel leases as FF&E reserve income. HPT does not report the amounts which are escrowed as FF&E reserves for its managed hotels as FF&E reserve income.

(4) Incentive fees under HPT’s business management agreement are payable after the end of each calendar year, are calculated based on common share total return, as defined, and are included in general and administrative expense in HPT’s condensed consolidated statements of income. In calculating net income in accordance with GAAP, HPT recognizes estimated business management incentive fee expense, if any, in the first, second and third quarters. Although HPT recognizes this expense, if any, in the first, second and third quarters for purposes of calculating net income, HPT does not include these amounts in the calculation of Normalized FFO available for common shareholders or Adjusted EBITDA until the fourth quarter, which is when the business management incentive fee expense amount for the year, if any, is determined. Net income includes $17,750 and $25,920 of estimated business management incentive fee expense in the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, and $37,370 and $31,236 of estimated business management incentive fee expense in the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

(5) Represents costs associated with HPT’s acquisition activities. Acquisition costs incurred during the 2017 periods have been capitalized in purchase accounting pursuant to a change in GAAP.

(6) HPT recorded a loss on early extinguishment of debt of $70 in the six months ended June 30, 2016, in connection with the redemption of certain senior unsecured notes.

(7) On February 10, 2017, HPT redeemed all 11,600,000 of its outstanding 7.125% Series D cumulative redeemable preferred shares at the stated liquidation preference of $25.00 per share plus accrued and unpaid distributions to the date of redemption (an aggregate of $291,435). The liquidation preference of the redeemed shares exceeded the carrying amount for the redeemed shares as of the date of redemption by $9,893, or $0.06 per share, and HPT reduced net income available to common shareholders in the six months ended June 30, 2017 by that excess amount.

(8) HPT calculates FFO available for common shareholders and Normalized FFO available for common shareholders as shown above. FFO available for common shareholders is calculated on the basis defined by The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, which is net income available for common shareholders calculated in accordance with GAAP, excluding any gain or loss on sale of properties and loss on impairment of real estate assets, if any, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, as well as certain other adjustments currently not applicable to HPT. HPT’s calculation of Normalized FFO available for common shareholders differs from NAREIT’s definition of FFO available for common shareholders because HPT includes business management incentive fees, if any, only in the fourth quarter versus the quarter when they are recognized as expense in accordance with GAAP due to their quarterly volatility not necessarily being indicative of HPT’s core operating performance and the uncertainty as to whether any such business management incentive fees will be payable when all contingencies for determining such fees are known at the end of the calendar year, and HPT excludes excess of liquidation preference over carrying value of preferred shares redeemed, acquisition related costs expensed under GAAP and loss on early extinguishment of debt. HPT considers FFO available for common shareholders and Normalized FFO available for common shareholders to be appropriate supplemental measures of operating performance for a REIT, along with net income, net income available for common shareholders and operating income. HPT believes that FFO available for common shareholders and Normalized FFO available for common shareholders provide useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain historical amounts, such as depreciation expense, FFO available for common shareholders and Normalized FFO available for common shareholders may facilitate a comparison of HPT’s operating performance between periods and with other REITs. FFO available for common shareholders and Normalized FFO available for common shareholders are among the factors considered by HPT’s Board of Trustees when determining the amount of distributions to shareholders. Other factors include, but are not limited to, requirements to maintain HPT’s qualification for taxation as a REIT, limitations in its credit agreement and public debt covenants, the availability to HPT of debt and equity capital, HPT’s expectation of its future capital requirements and operating performance and HPT’s expected needs for and availability of cash to pay its obligations. FFO available for common shareholders and Normalized FFO available for common shareholders do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, net income available for common shareholders or operating income as indicators of HPT’s operating performance or as measures of HPT’s liquidity. These measures should be considered in conjunction with net income, net income available for common shareholders and operating income as presented in HPT’s condensed consolidated statements of income. Other real estate companies and REITs may calculate FFO available for common shareholders and Normalized FFO available for common shareholders differently than HPT does.

(9) HPT calculates EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as shown above. HPT considers EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be appropriate supplemental measures of its operating performance, along with net income, net income available for common shareholders and operating income. HPT believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain historical amounts, such as interest, depreciation and amortization expense, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may facilitate a comparison of current operating performance with HPT’s past operating performance. In calculating Adjusted EBITDA, HPT includes business management incentive fees only in the fourth quarter versus the quarter when they are recognized as expense in accordance with GAAP due to their quarterly volatility not necessarily being indicative of HPT’s core operating performance and the uncertainty as to whether any such business management incentive fees will be payable when all contingencies for determining such fees are known at the end of the calendar year. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered alternatives to net income, net income available for common shareholders or operating income as indicators of operating performance or as measures of HPT’s liquidity. These measures should be considered in conjunction with net income, net income available for common shareholders and operating income as presented in HPT’s condensed consolidated statements of income. Other real estate companies and REITs may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than HPT does.

(10) Amounts represent the equity compensation for HPT’s trustees, its officers and certain other employees of HPT’s manager.
