ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE:CHH), one of the world's largest hotel companies, today reported its results for the three months ended June 30, 2017. Net income for the 2017 second quarter was $45.0 million, or $0.79 per diluted share, compared to $38.8 million, or $0.68 per diluted share for the 2016 second quarter, representing a 16-percent increase.  Second quarter adjusted earnings before income taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) was $81.1 million compared to $70.4 million in the prior-year second quarter, a 15-percent increase.

"Choice Hotels' overall strategy to successfully focus on franchisee profitability has led to our robust development pipeline and continues to deliver strong financial results," said Stephen P. Joyce, chief executive officer, Choice Hotels. "For second quarter of 2017, 176 new domestic franchise agreements were executed, a 20-percent increase when compared to second quarter of 2016. In fact, we have experienced one of the strongest January through June development periods in our company's history, as new franchise agreements increased 30-percent and new construction agreements increased 65-percent, versus the first six months of 2016."

"Our midscale and upscale brands continue to be core areas of strength and expansion," said Patrick Pacious, Choice Hotel's president, chief operating officer and incoming chief executive officer. "The brands in our midscale segment, including Comfort, Quality and Sleep Inn, are experiencing continued growth in both RevPAR and our development pipeline. In addition, our upscale brands – Cambria Hotels and The Ascend Hotel Collection – are aggressively expanding. These results reinforce that we have very effective distribution channels and a high-performing franchisee business model."

Highlights of the company's second quarter 2017 results are as follows:

Use of Cash Flows

Dividends
During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the company paid cash dividends totaling approximately $24 million. Based on the current quarterly dividend rate of $0.215 per common share, the company expects to pay dividends of approximately $49 million during 2017.

Share Repurchases
The company did not repurchase shares of common stock under its share repurchase program during the six months ended June 30, 2017. The company currently has authorization to purchase up to 4.0 million additional shares under this program. 

Hotel Development & Financing
Pursuant to its program to encourage acceleration of the growth of our upscale Cambria Hotels brand, the company advanced approximately $64 million in support of the brand's development during the six months ended June 30, 2017. The company also recycled approximately $2 million of prior investments in Cambria development projects, resulting in net advances of $62 million for the current year. Advances under this program are primarily in the form of joint venture investments, forgivable key money loans, senior mortgage loans, development loans, mezzanine lending, and through the operation of a land-banking program.  On June 30, 2017, the company had approximately $261 million reflected in its consolidated balance sheet pursuant to these financial support activities. With respect to lending and joint venture investments, the company generally expects to recycle these loans and investments within a five-year period.

Special Item

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, the company recorded an executive termination benefit charge of approximately $2.2 million. This special item impacted diluted EPS by $0.03 and $0.02 per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively. The company evaluates the non-GAAP measures presented herein that exclude executive termination benefits because those non-GAAP measures allow for period-over-period comparison of ongoing core operations before the impact of these charges. These non-GAAP measures, which are reconciled to the comparable GAAP measures in Exhibit 6, include adjusted net income, adjusted diluted EPS, adjusted hotel franchising selling, general and administrative expenses, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted hotel franchising EBITDA and adjusted hotel franchising margins. 

Outlook

The company's consolidated 2017 outlook reflects the following assumptions:

Consolidated Outlook

  • Net income for full-year 2017 is expected to range between $160 million and $163 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for full-year 2017 is expected to range between $293 million and $297 million.
  • The company's third-quarter 2017 adjusted diluted EPS is expected to range between $0.90 and $0.92.
  • The company expects full-year 2017 adjusted diluted EPS to range between $2.81 and $2.86.
  • The effective tax rate is expected to be approximately 33 percent for both the third quarter and full-year 2017. 
  • All estimates for 2017 exclude any potential costs associated with the company's recently announced executive succession plan.
  • Adjusted diluted EPS estimates are based on the current number of shares outstanding, and thus do not factor in any changes that may occur due to new equity grants or any further repurchases of common stock, under the company's share repurchase program.
  • The adjusted diluted EPS and consolidated adjusted EBITDA estimates assume that we incur net reductions in adjusted EBITDA related to non-hotel franchising activities at the midpoint of the range for these investments.

Hotel Franchising

  • Adjusted EBITDA from hotel franchising activities for full-year 2017 is expected to range between $299 million and $303 million.
  • Net domestic unit growth for 2017 is expected to range between approximately 2 percent and 3 percent.
  • RevPAR is expected to increase between 1 percent and 2 percent for the third quarter and range between 2 percent and 3 percent for full-year 2017.
  • The effective royalty rate is expected to increase between 17 and 19 basis points for full-year 2017 as compared to full-year 2016.

Non-Hotel Franchising Activities

  • Net reductions in full-year 2017 adjusted EBITDA, relating to our non-hotel franchising operations, which primarily relate to SkyTouch and vacation rental activities, are expected to range between approximately $5 million and $7 million.

Several factors could cause actual results, performance or achievements of the company to differ materially from those expressed in or contemplated by the forward-looking statements.  Such risks include, but are not limited to, changes to general, domestic and foreign economic conditions; foreign currency fluctuations; operating risks common in the lodging and franchising industries; changes to the desirability of our brands as viewed by hotel operators and customers; changes to the terms or termination of our contracts with franchisees; our ability to keep pace with improvements in technology utilized for marketing and reservations systems and other operating systems; our ability to grow our franchise system; exposure to risks related to our hotel development and financing activities; fluctuations in the supply and demand for hotels rooms; our ability to realize anticipated benefits from acquired businesses; the level of acceptance of alternative growth strategies we may implement; operating risks associated with our international operations; the outcome of litigation; and our ability to manage our indebtedness.  These and other risk factors are discussed in detail in the company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission including our annual report on Form 10-K for 2016 and our quarterly reports filed on Form 10-Q.  Except as may be required by law, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Statement Concerning Non-GAAP Financial Measurements Presented in this Press Release
Adjusted EBITDA, hotel franchising revenues, adjusted hotel franchising SG&A, Adjusted EBITDA from hotel franchising activities, adjusted hotel franchising margins and adjusted diluted EPS are non-GAAP financial measurements.  These measures should not be considered as an alternative to any measure of performance or liquidity as promulgated under or authorized by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), such as net income, total revenues and operating margins.  The company's calculation of these measurements may be different from the calculations used by other companies and therefore comparability may be limited.  The company has included an exhibit accompanying this release that reconciles these items to the most comparable GAAP financial measures. We discuss management's reasons for reporting these non-GAAP measures below.

Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization: Adjusted EBITDA reflects net income excluding the impact of interest expense, interest income, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, other (gains) and losses, equity in net income of unconsolidated affiliates, mark to market adjustments on non-qualified retirement plan investments and executive termination benefits. We consider adjusted EBITDA to be an indicator of operating performance because we use it to measure our ability to service debt, fund capital expenditures, and expand our business. We also use adjusted EBITDA, as do analysts, lenders, investors and others, to evaluate companies because it excludes certain items that can vary widely across different industries or among companies within the same industry. For example, interest expense can be dependent on a company's capital structure, debt levels and credit ratings. Accordingly, the impact of interest expense on earnings can vary significantly among companies. The tax positions of companies can also vary because of their differing abilities to take advantage of tax benefits and because of the tax policies of the jurisdictions in which they operate. As a result, effective tax rates and provision for income taxes can vary considerably among companies. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes depreciation and amortization because companies utilize productive assets of different ages and use different methods of both acquiring and depreciating productive assets. These differences can result in considerable variability in the relative costs of productive assets and the depreciation and amortization expense among companies. Mark to market adjustments on non-qualified retirement plan investments recorded in SG&A are excluded from EBITDA as the company accounts for these investments in accordance with accounting for deferred compensation arrangements when investments are held in a rabbi trust and invested.  Changes in the fair value of the investments are recognized as both compensation expense in SG&A and other gains and losses.  As a result, the changes in the fair value of the investments do not have a material impact on the company's net income. These amounts are excluded from EBITDA as they can vary widely across reporting periods based on the performance of the investments and are not an indicator of the operating performance of the company.

Hotel Franchising Revenues, Adjusted Hotel Franchising EBITDA, Adjusted Hotel Franchising SG&A and Margins:  The company reports hotel franchising revenues, adjusted hotel franchising EBITDA, adjusted franchising hotel SG&A and margins which exclude marketing and reservation system revenues; the SkyTouch Technology division; vacation rental activities including operations that provide Software as a Service ("SaaS") technology solutions to vacation rental management companies; and revenue generated from the ownership of an office building that is leased to a third-party.  These non-GAAP measures are a commonly used measure of performance in our industry and facilitate comparisons between the company and its competitors. Marketing and reservation system activities are excluded from these measures since the company is required by its franchise agreements to use the fees collected for marketing and reservation activities; as such, no income or loss to the company is generated. Cumulative marketing and reservation system fees not expended are recorded as a liability in the company's financial statements and are carried over to the next year and expended in accordance with the franchise agreements. Cumulative marketing and reservation expenditures in excess of fees collected for marketing and reservation activities are deferred and recorded as an asset in the company's financial statements and recovered in future periods.  SkyTouch Technology is a division of the company that develops and markets cloud-based technology products, including inventory management, pricing and connectivity to third party channels, to hoteliers not under franchise agreements with the company. The operations for SkyTouch Technology and our vacation rental activities are excluded since they do not reflect the company's core franchising business but are adjacent, complementary lines of business.
