RESORTS

 
  • Since August 17, the Company has reopened 1 additional urban hotel, bringing its total number of open hotels and resorts to 35; these 35 properties accounted for approximately 71% of Pebblebrook’s 2019 Hotel EBITDA
  • The Company is anticipating additional hotel reopenings as demand recovers

 

 

 

 

AVERAGE
MONTHLY CASH
BURN

 
  • Monthly hotel portfolio cash burn is currently running at $6 to $9 million; a $9 million reduction to the Company’s early May midpoint estimate and a $3 million further reduction to the Company’s mid-August midpoint estimate
  • Total monthly corporate cash burn is currently running at $17 to $22 million; an $8 million reduction to the Company’s early May midpoint estimate and a $2 million further reduction to the Company’s mid-August midpoint estimate

This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined under Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the hotel’s results of operations determined in accordance with GAAP.

The Company has presented an estimate for July 2020 hotel EBITDA and an estimate for July 2020 hotel net operating income after capital reserves because it believes these measures provide investors and analysts with an understanding of the hotel-level operating performance. These non-GAAP measures do not represent amounts available for management’s discretionary use, because of needed capital replacement or expansion, debt service obligations or other commitments and uncertainties, nor are they indicative of funds available to fund the Company’s cash needs, including its ability to make distributions.

The Company’s presentation of the hotel’s estimated July 2020 EBITDA and estimated July 2020 net operating income after capital reserves should not be considered as an alternative to net income (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of the hotel’s financial performance. The table above is a reconciliation of the hotel’s estimated July 2020 EBITDA and net operating income after capital reserves calculations to net income in accordance with GAAP. Any differences are a result of rounding.
