“We are very pleased with our results and activities during the third quarter,” said Michael D. Barnello, President and Chief Executive Officer of LaSalle Hotel Properties. “We acquired four outstanding assets in the markets of San Francisco and Key West, both of which benefit from significant supply constraints and very strong demand. Furthermore, our portfolio’s RevPAR, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted FFO exceeded the high end of our expectations. As a result of our acquisitions and our performance during the third quarter, we have increased our full year 2013 outlook.”

Park Central and WestHouse Update

The Company has nearly completed its renovation of the Park Central Hotel in New York City. As previously disclosed, the project consists of the full renovation and splitting of the original 934-room Park Central Hotel into two distinct hotels: the newly renovated 761-room Park Central Hotel and the upgraded 172-room premium WestHouse Hotel.

The Park Central Hotel portion of the renovation is complete, as its lobby, meeting space, restaurant and all 761 of the hotel rooms have been completely renovated. The Company has also completed the renovation of the vast majority of the WestHouse guestrooms, with the lobby to be completed by the end of November. EBITDA displacement on the entire project was $0.2 million during the third quarter and $8.0 million to date. The Company’s expectation for full year EBITDA displacement related to the entire project is $9.0 to $10.0 million.

Balance Sheet

As of September 30, 2013, the Company had total outstanding debt of $1.5 billion, including $461.0 million outstanding on its senior unsecured credit facility. Total net debt to trailing 12 month Corporate EBITDA (as defined in the Company’s senior unsecured credit facility) was 4.6 times as of September 30, 2013 and its fixed charge coverage ratio was 3.3 times. For the third quarter, the Company’s weighted average interest rate was 3.8 percent. As of September 30, 2013, the Company had $15.5 million of cash and cash equivalents on its balance sheet and capacity of $311.7 million available on its credit facilities. During the third quarter, the Company did not sell any stock under its ATM program.

2013 Fourth Quarter Outlook

The Company expects fourth quarter RevPAR, excluding the Park Central Hotel, to increase 3.0 percent to 5.0 percent. The Company’s expectations assume a quick resolution to the government shutdown. The Company expects its portfolio, including the Park Central Hotel, to generate adjusted EBITDA of $71.0 million to $75.0 million and adjusted FFO per share/unit of $0.52 to $0.56.

2013 Outlook

The Company is updating its 2013 outlook. The revised outlook excludes any future acquisitions or equity issuances for the remainder of 2013.

With respect to Hotel EBITDA, the Company believes that 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 individual hotels and operators have direct control. We believe property-level results provide investors with supplemental information on the ongoing operational performance of our hotels and effectiveness of the third-party management companies operating our business on a property-level basis.
 
Hotel EBITDA includes all properties owned as of September 30, 2013 for the Company's period of ownership in 2013 and the comparable period in 2012. The above numbers exclude partial ownership for the month of August for Serrano and Southernmost.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

FFO, EBITDA and Hotel EBITDA

The Company considers the non-GAAP measures of FFO (including FFO per share/unit), EBITDA and hotel EBITDA 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, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA to be helpful in evaluating a real estate company's operations.

The White Paper on FFO approved by NAREIT in April 2002, as revised in 2011, defines FFO as net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains or losses from sales of properties, impairment write-downs and items classified by GAAP as extraordinary, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred finance costs) 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 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 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.

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.

With respect to hotel EBITDA, the Company believes that 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 individual hotels and operators have direct control. We believe property-level results provide investors with supplemental information on the ongoing operational performance of our hotels and effectiveness of the third-party management companies operating our business on a property-level basis.

FFO, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA 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, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA are not measures of the Company's liquidity, nor are FFO, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA 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 and will be incurred. FFO, EBITDA and hotel EBITDA 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.

Adjusted FFO and Adjusted EBITDA

The Company presents adjusted FFO (including adjusted FFO per share/unit) and adjusted EBITDA, which adjusts for certain additional items including gains on sale of property and impairment losses (to the extent included in EBITDA), acquisition transaction costs, costs associated with the departure of executive officers, costs associated with the recognition of issuance costs related to the calling of preferred shares 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 hotel EBITDA, the Company’s calculation of adjusted FFO and adjusted EBITDA may be different from similar adjusted measures calculated by other REITs.
