13 Days ago

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ryman Hospitality Properties, Inc. (NYSE: RHP), a lodging real estate investment trust ("REIT") specializing in group-oriented, destination hotel assets in urban and resort markets, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

Third Quarter 2019 Results (As Compared to Third Quarter 2018):

  • Same-Store RevPAR Increased 7.9% and Same-Store Total RevPAR Increased 5.6%
  • Consolidated Net Income Available to Common Shareholders Decreased 1.1% to $22.3 Million Due Primarily to Costs Associated with Recent Refinancing
  • Consolidated Adjusted EBITDAre Increased 40.6% to $119.1 Million 
  • Funds From Operations Available to Common Shareholders Increased 26.4% to $67.7 Million; Adjusted Funds From Operations Available to Common Shareholders Increased 22.9% to $78.0 Million
  • Same-Store Gross Room Night Bookings of approximately 582,000 Room Nights for All Future Years, up 26.7%
  • Increases Full Year Guidance for Same-Store RevPAR, Same-Store Total RevPAR, and Consolidated Adjusted EBITDAre; Adjusts 2019 Net Income Guidance

Colin Reed, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ryman Hospitality Properties, said, “We had high expectations for our results going into the quarter, and our businesses delivered against those expectations with strong topline growth compared to the third quarter of last year.

Bookings activity in our Hospitality segment during the third quarter of 2019 was strong with same-store gross advanced bookings of almost 582,000 room nights, which contributed to the highest ever forward book of business as of the end of a third quarter. While our margins were strong at our four core hotels, they were impacted by higher labor costs in some of our markets, a mix shift in food and beverage spending, and a large, one-time credit with a purchasing vendor that occurred in the third quarter of 2018 that impacted all our properties.

Our Entertainment business turned in another robust performance with continued strength from our core Nashville attractions as well as our Ole Red brand, which is steadily gaining momentum. Construction on our fourth Ole Red location in Orlando, Florida is pacing slightly ahead of schedule, and we look forward to sharing more details with you on this location and our continued expansion plans in the months ahead.

With the strong performance delivered so far in 2019, we are again increasing our guidance for same-store RevPAR, same-store Total RevPAR and also Adjusted EBITDAre for both the Hospitality and Entertainment segments. We look forward to seeing continued positive results from our investments in these businesses as we complete the fourth quarter of 2019.”

Gaylord Opryland Highlights for Third Quarter 2019 (As Compared to Third Quarter 2018):

  • Gaylord Opryland quarterly revenue increased 11.9% to $90.2 million and was positively impacted by the first full quarter of operations of the outdoor portion of SoundWaves, which helped drive a 14.6% increase in transient room nights in the third quarter of 2019 and contributed to overall occupancy growth of 480 basis points year-over-year. Total admissions to this unique water attraction exceeded 93,000 for the third quarter 2019 as regional awareness and interest in SoundWaves continues to grow.    
  • RevPAR and Total RevPAR increased during the quarter by 12.0% and 11.9%, respectively, driven by new revenues generated from SoundWaves, as well as higher rates across all segments, which helped increase ADR by 5.1% in the quarter.  Food and beverage revenue increased by 4.7% in the quarter; however, a mix shift to association and transient room nights resulted in higher outlet spending versus banquet catering, which weakened flow through in the quarter.
  • Operating income and Adjusted EBITDAre increased by 17.9% and 11.2%, respectively, due to a 6.6% increase in rooms nights sold, contribution from SoundWaves and higher attrition and cancellation fee collections.  Results were tempered by weaker flow through on food and beverage, higher labor costs, higher utility and marketing costs associated with SoundWaves, and a large one-time credit from a purchasing vendor in the third quarter of 2018.
  • Ongoing renovation of the Magnolia wing resulted in approximately 6,000 room nights out of service during the third quarter of 2019.  The renovation project is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2019 and is currently on time and on budget. We anticipate a similar number of room nights out of service in the fourth quarter of 2019 as the renovation project is completed.

Gaylord Palms Highlights for Third Quarter 2019 (As Compared to Third Quarter 2018):

  • Gaylord Palms quarterly revenue increased 5.0% to $40.9 million, driven by a positive mix shift to corporate group room nights that lifted outside the room spending across both outlets and banquet catering. Food and beverage revenue increased 10.5% during the quarter, rebounding as expected from the year-over-year decline experienced at the property last quarter. Corporate group room nights sold increased 88.9% versus the prior year quarter.
  • RevPAR was relatively flat during the third quarter as the positive year-over-year mix shift in occupancy was largely offset by year-over-year changes in transient ADR. Total RevPAR increased by 5.0% as the mix shift in the quarter benefitted food and beverage spending.   
  • Operating income and Adjusted EBITDAre declined 13.2% and 4.3%, respectively, during the third quarter. Flow through was challenged by higher labor costs, higher property insurance and property tax expense, and a large one-time credit from a purchasing vendor in the third quarter of 2018.
  • Forward bookings for the Gaylord Palms expansion continue to progress well and are tracking in-line with forward booking levels for the Gaylord Texan expansion during the same time period. The expansion project, which will add 303 new guest rooms and 90,000 square feet of additional meeting space, remains on time and on budget as it continues to track toward completion in the third quarter of 2021.

Gaylord Texan Highlights for Third Quarter 2019 (As Compared to Third Quarter 2018):

  • Gaylord Texan quarterly revenue increased 5.9% to $66.5 million, driven by a 440 basis point increase in occupancy to 80.6%. The expansion that was completed in the spring of 2018 helped drive an incremental 7,400 room nights sold in the quarter compared to the same period last year.
  • The hotel experienced a mix shift as association room nights increased by 89.7% year-over-year, offsetting modest declines in corporate and other group nights sold in the quarter. RevPAR increased 8.8% in the quarter, driven primarily by the increase in occupancy coupled with a 2.8% increase in ADR.  Total RevPAR increased 5.9%.
  • Operating income and Adjusted EBITDAre increased by 6.7% and 4.5%, respectively. While higher room nights sold benefited flow through, the mix of groups led to lower banquet and catering revenue and higher outlet spending. Results were also impacted by a decline in attrition and cancellation fee collections, higher property taxes related to the expansion, and a large one-time credit from a purchasing vendor in the third quarter of 2018.

Gaylord National Highlights for Third Quarter 2019 (As Compared to Third Quarter 2018):

  • Total revenue for third quarter 2019 decreased 1.9% to $59.1 million, impacted by a 11.0% decrease in food and beverage revenue during the quarter. Lower banquet revenue compared to the prior year quarter was primarily driven by a decline in corporate groups and the increase in other groups.
  • Transient ADR increased 13.8% in the third quarter compared to the prior year quarter as the property continued to shift its transient sales strategy towards higher-rated leisure customers.  RevPAR increased by 7.2% in the quarter, driven by the increase in ADR across all group segments.  Total RevPAR declined by 1.9% in the quarter due to lower food and beverage spending.
  • Operating income and Adjusted EBITDAre decreased 43.4% and 11.1%, respectively, driven primarily by the decline in outside the room spending, higher wage and benefit costs, and a large one-time credit from a purchasing vendor in the third quarter of 2018.

(2) Operating income/(loss) and Adjusted EBITDAre for Gaylord Rockies for the 2019 periods exclude asset management fees paid to the Company during the the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2019 of $0.6 million and $1.7 million, respectively. 

Reed continued, “Gaylord Rockies’ performance continues to exceed our expectations, delivering the strongest occupancy performance in the quarter across our family of Gaylord Hotels properties at 86.3%.  This performance is a remarkable achievement for a hotel in its first year of operation. Gaylord Rockies benefited from our group focus, which helped drive strong food and beverage results in the quarter and contributed to quarter-over-quarter increases of 22.8% and 15.9% in RevPAR and Total RevPAR, respectively. We are looking forward to the first ICE! holiday programming at the hotel that will take place during the fourth quarter and anticipate a strong close to the year for Gaylord Rockies. The refinancing completed early in the third quarter of 2019 ensures we have the financing capability to move forward with a decision on the contemplated 300-room expansion project, which we expect to make by the end of 2019 or early 2020.”

Entertainment Segment

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, the Company reported the following:

Entertainment Segment Results  
  Three Months Ended   Nine Months Ended
  September 30,   September 30,
($ in thousands)   2019     2018   % ∆       2019     2018     % ∆

Adjusted EBITDAre margin   34.4%     28.1%   6.3pt       32.1%     24.9%     7.2pt  

Reed continued, “Looking back at the quarter in our Entertainment segment, we would like to remind investors that we incurred a $4.5 million impairment charge in the third quarter of 2018 related to our previous investment in Opry City Stage, which was closed in December 2018. Nevertheless, our enthusiasm for the long-term growth and expansion of the Entertainment segment as a whole continues and our businesses made the most of the summer tourism season. A few weeks ago, we announced that the country music and lifestyle television network that we’ve created with Gray Television through a joint venture partnership will be called Circle. Circle will begin operating 24/7 in early 2020 across TV stations owned by Gray Television, and we expect to announce more distribution partners in the coming months. We expect the companion over-the-top (OTT) channel to be widely available in second quarter 2020. We remain enthusiastic about the opportunity Circle will create to showcase our unique country music assets to the 110 million country lifestyle consumers in the United States.”

Corporate and Other Segment

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, the Company reported the following:

Corporate and Other Segment Results  
  Three Months Ended   Nine Months Ended
  September 30,   September 30,
($ in thousands)   2019     2018   % ∆     2019     2018   % ∆
               
Operating Loss ($9,825 ) ($7,647 ) -28.5%     ($27,728 ) ($24,572 )   -12.8%  
Adjusted EBITDAre ($7,730 ) ($5,433 ) -42.3%     ($21,605 ) ($17,885 )   -20.8%  

Corporate and Other Segment Operating Loss and Adjusted EBITDAre for the 2019 periods include increases in administrative and employment costs associated with supporting the Company’s growth initiatives in its Hospitality and Entertainment segments.

Dividend Update
The Company paid its third quarter 2019 cash dividend of $0.90 per share of common stock on October 15, 2019 to stockholders of record on September 30, 2019.  It is the Company’s current plan to distribute total 2019 annual dividends of approximately $3.60 per share in cash in equal quarterly payments with the remaining payment occurring in January of 2020. Any future dividend is subject to the Board of Directors’ determinations as to the amount of quarterly distributions and the timing thereof. 

Balance Sheet/Liquidity Update
As of September 30, 2019, the Company had total debt outstanding of $2,581.3 million, net of unamortized deferred financing costs, and unrestricted cash of $101.8 million. Total debt outstanding includes $791.5 million of Gaylord Rockies joint venture debt, net of unamortized deferred financing costs. As of September 30, 2019, $223.0 million of borrowings were drawn under the revolving credit line of the Company’s credit facility, and the lending banks had issued approximately $1.0 million in letters of credit, which left $476.0 million of availability for borrowing under the credit facility.

Private Senior Note Offering Successfully Completed
On September 19, 2019, the Company completed the private placement of $500 million aggregate principal amount of 4.75% senior notes due 2027. Subsequently, on October 8, 2019, the Company closed a tack-on issuance of an additional $200 million of 4.75% senior notes due 2027, issued at a premium to the principal amount. The Company used the proceeds from these offerings to purchase, pursuant to the Company’s previously announced tender offer, and redeem its $350 million 5.00% senior unsecured notes due in 2021, and to repay a portion of the outstanding indebtedness under the Company’s revolving credit facility. The new issue of 4.75% senior notes due 2027 increased the weighted average length of the Company’s debt maturities from 3.6 years to 5.5 years.

Credit Facility Successfully Refinanced
On October 31, 2019, the Company completed the repricing and extension of its $700 million revolving credit facility and Term Loan A facility.  In addition, the Company increased its Term Loan A from $200 million to $300 million, with the proceeds being used to pay down a portion of the indebtedness outstanding under its $500 million Term Loan B facility.  This financing activity took advantage of favorable market conditions to extend the earliest maturity of the Company’s outstanding secured debt by almost three years, lower its average cost of capital through a combination of an improved leverage based pricing for the revolver and Term Loan A coupled with an interest rate swap on Term Loan B to fix the interest rate on approximately $350 million of the outstanding indebtedness, and improve the opportunity for long term liquidity moving forward, which the Company believes will provide it with flexibility to take advantage of strategic opportunities that may develop in the future.

Guidance
The Company is updating its outlook for 2019 based on current information as of November 5, 2019. The Company does not expect to update the guidance provided below before next quarter’s earnings release.

  2. Includes fully consolidated results from Gaylord Rockies. In July 2019, the Company purchased an additional 0.9% interest in the Gaylord Rockies joint venture; as a result, the Company currently owns a 62.1% equity interest in, and is the managing member of, the Gaylord Rockies joint venture.

Reed concluded, “As we head into the final months of 2019, our business is on track to have another record year. Given the continued strong performance across our Hospitality and Entertainment segments and our expectations for the fourth quarter of this year, we are increasing our full year 2019 guidance for same-store RevPAR, same-store Total RevPAR and consolidated Adjusted EBITDAre for the second consecutive quarter. We are extremely pleased with these results and look forward to continuing this strong momentum into 2020.” The Company noted that deferred financing cost write-offs attributable to the recent successful refinancing transactions caused the decrease in the Net Income guidance range.

Additional Information
This release should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our most recent annual report on Form 10-K. Copies of our reports are available on our website at no expense at www.rymanhp.com and through the SEC’s Electronic Data Gathering Analysis and Retrieval System (“EDGAR”) at www.sec.gov.

Calculation of RevPAR, Other RevPAR, and Total RevPAR
We calculate revenue per available room (“RevPAR”) for our hotels by dividing room revenue by room nights available to guests for the period. We calculate other revenue per available room (“Other RevPAR”) for our hotels by dividing all non-room revenue (food & beverage and other ancillary services revenue) by room nights available to guests for the period. We calculate total revenue per available room (“Total RevPAR”) for our hotels by dividing the sum of room revenue, food & beverage and other ancillary services revenue by room nights available to guests for the period. Rooms out of service for renovation are included in room nights available.  Same-Store Hospitality RevPAR and Same-Store Hospitality Total RevPAR do not include the Gaylord Rockies.

Calculation of GAAP Margin Figures
We calculate Net Income available to common shareholders margin by dividing GAAP consolidated Net Income available to common shareholders by GAAP consolidated Total Revenue. We calculate consolidated, segment or property-level Operating Income Margin by dividing consolidated, segment or property-level GAAP Operating Income by consolidated, segment or property-level GAAP Revenue. Same-Store Operating Income Margin does not include the Gaylord Rockies.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We present the following non-GAAP financial measures we believe are useful to investors as key measures of our operating performance:

Adjusted EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest Definition
We calculate EBITDAre, which is defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) in its September 2017 white paper as net income (calculated in accordance with GAAP) plus interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, gains or losses on the disposition of depreciated property (including gains or losses on change in control), impairment write-downs of depreciated property and of investments in unconsolidated affiliates caused by a decrease in the value of depreciated property or the affiliate, and adjustments to reflect the entity’s share of EBITDAre of unconsolidated affiliates. Adjusted EBITDAre is then calculated as EBITDAre, plus to the extent the following adjustments occurred during the periods presented: preopening costs; non-cash ground lease expense; equity-based compensation expense; impairment charges that do not meet the NAREIT definition above; any transaction costs of completed acquisitions; interest income on bonds; pension settlement charges; pro rata Adjusted EBITDAre from unconsolidated joint ventures, write-offs of deferred financing costs, (gains) losses on extinguishment of debt and any other adjustments we have identified in this release. We then exclude noncontrolling interests in joint ventures to calculate Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest. We make additional adjustments to EBITDAre when evaluating our performance because we believe that presenting Adjusted EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest, and adjustments for certain additional items provide useful information to investors regarding our operating performance and debt leverage metrics, and that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest, when combined with the primary GAAP presentation of net income, is beneficial to an investor’s complete understanding of our operating performance. Same-Store Hospitality Adjusted EBITDAre does not include the Gaylord Rockies.

Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest Margin Definition
We calculate consolidated Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest Margin by dividing consolidated Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest by GAAP consolidated Total Revenue. We calculate consolidated, segment, or property-level Adjusted EBITDAre Margin by dividing consolidated segment, or property-level Adjusted EBITDAre by consolidated, segment, or property-level GAAP Revenue.  We believe Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest Margin is useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance because this non-GAAP financial measure helps investors evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by presenting a ratio showing the quantitative relationship between Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest and GAAP consolidated Total Revenue or segment or property-level GAAP Revenue, as applicable. Same-Store Adjusted EBITDAre Margin does not include the Gaylord Rockies.

Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders Definition
We calculate FFO, which definition is clarified by NAREIT in its December 2018 white paper as net income (calculated in accordance with GAAP) excluding depreciation and amortization (not including right-of-use amortization), gains and losses from the sale of certain real estate assets, gains and losses from a change in control, impairment write-downs of certain real estate assets and investments in entities when the impairment is directly attributable to decreases in the value of depreciated real estate held by the entity, income (loss) from consolidated joint ventures attributable to noncontrolling interest, and pro rata adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures. The clarifications did not change our calculation of FFO available to common shareholders and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders for any historical period.  To calculate Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders, we then exclude, to the extent the following adjustments occurred during the periods presented, right-of-use asset amortization, impairment charges that do not meet the NAREIT definition above; write-offs of deferred financing costs, non-cash ground lease expense, amortization of debt discounts and amortization of deferred financing cost, pension settlement charges, additional pro rata adjustments from joint ventures, (gains) losses on other assets, transaction costs on completed acquisitions, deferred income tax expense (benefit), and (gains) losses on extinguishment of debt. FFO available to common shareholders and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders (presented for 2019) exclude the ownership portion of Gaylord Rockies joint venture not controlled or owned by the Company.

We believe that the presentation of FFO available to common shareholders and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders provide useful information to investors regarding the performance of our ongoing operations because it is a measure of our operations without regard to specified non-cash items such as real estate depreciation and amortization, gain or loss on sale of assets and certain other items which we believe are not indicative of the performance of our underlying hotel properties. We believe that these items are more representative of our asset base than our ongoing operations. We also use FFO available to common shareholders and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders as measures in determining our results after considering the impact of our capital structure. A reconciliation of Net Income (loss) to FFO available to common shareholders and a reconciliation of Net Income (loss) available to common shareholders to Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders are set forth below under “Supplemental Financial Results.”  

We caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with our definitions of Adjusted EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest, Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest Margin, and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies, because not all companies calculate these non-GAAP measures in the same manner. Adjusted EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest, Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest Margin, and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders, and any related per share measures, should not be considered as alternative measures of our Net Income (loss), operating performance, cash flow or liquidity. Adjusted EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest, and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders may include funds that may not be available for our discretionary use due to functional requirements to conserve funds for capital expenditures and property acquisitions and other commitments and uncertainties. Although we believe that Adjusted EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest, Adjusted EBITDAre, Excluding Noncontrolling Interest Margin, and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders can enhance an investor’s understanding of our results of operations, these non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed individually, are not necessarily better indicators of any trend as compared to GAAP measures such as Net Income (loss), Net Income Margin, Operating Income (loss), Operating Income Margin, or cash flow from operations. In addition, you should be aware that adverse economic and market and other conditions may harm our cash flow.
