Thomas J.

Our hotels in drive-to and fly-to resort markets continue to outperform, producing solid increases in both rate and occupancy as exceptionally strong leisure demand drove many of our resort assets to pre-pandemic performance. During the second half of 2021, we look forward to a sequential increase in leisure demand through the summer followed by the expected recovery of group and business transient demand. Also, with the sale of an additional four hotels and one pending sale, totaling $477 million in gross proceeds, our team will have exceeded our stated goal of selling $300 million to $400 million of hotels in 2021 to further de-leverage our balance sheet. We look forward to continuing this path of recovery throughout the remainder of this year and anticipate the return of group business, for which forward bookings continue to strengthen in 2022 with three consecutive quarters of increases, including a 10% increase in the second quarter.”

Total Pro-forma occupancy for July 2021 for the 46 consolidated hotels open during the entirety of the month is preliminarily estimated to be 64.4%.

For the second quarter of 2021, Park’s portfolio generated positive Hotel Adjusted EBITDA with over half of Park’s open consolidated hotels achieving break-even levels. In June 2021, Park broke even at the corporate level and anticipates positive cash flow for the third quarter, based on current trends.

Domestic leisure transient demand continued to grow significantly during the second quarter of 2021 as COVID-19 vaccinations rates increased, domestic restrictions eased and restrictions on international travel continued. The Pro-forma Rooms Revenue mix for each of three and six months ended June 30, 2021, 2020 and 2019 for the 42 consolidated hotels open during the entirety the second quarter of 2021 or 40 consolidated hotels open during the entirety of the first half of 2021 were as follows:

 Three Months Ended June 30,  Six Months Ended June 30, 
 2021  2020  2019  2021  2020  2019 
Group7.9% 9.1% 28.3% 7.5% 29.8% 30.7%

Contract5.8  23.3  4.8  6.9  6.5  3.7 
Other1.6  1.5  2.0  1.6  2.3  2.0 

The change in Pro-forma Rooms Revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 compared to the same periods in 2019 for the 42 consolidated hotels open during the entirety the second quarter of 2021 or 40 consolidated hotels open during the entirety of the first half of 2021 were as follows:

 Three Months Ended June 30,  Six Months Ended June 30,  
 2021 vs. 2019  2021 vs. 2019 
Group(84.2)% (88.7)%
Transient(25.8) (38.7)
Contract(32.0) (12.7)
Other(51.8) (61.8)

Group demand is showing signs of recovery with lead volume continuing to increase, up from 50% of 2019 levels in January to 96% of 2019 levels in July.  In the quarter for the quarter bookings through June were better than expected, driven by smaller groups (up to 300 peak room nights) holding events in locations with fewer restrictions. Assuming the reopening momentum across the U.S. continues, Park expects to see a return of larger groups late in the third quarter in select markets. Looking further out, group bookings for 2022 have increased each of the past three quarters, growing by over 200,000 room nights, or nearly 25%, since September 30, 2020 with acceleration following the approval of COVID-19 vaccines for emergency use in November 2020. As of June 30, 2021, 2022 group bookings are approximately 72% of what 2019 group bookings were as of June 30, 2018.

Highlights for Park's consolidated hotels owned as of August 5, 2021 in each of the Company’s key markets, segmented between leisure and other markets, are as follows:

Leisure Markets

  • Hawaii: Both Hawaii hotels are open, and certain restrictions between the Hawaiian Islands have been lifted. Although the market continues to be subject to global travel restrictions, including COVID-19 testing requirements, both hotels benefited from occupancy growth from domestic leisure demand, generating positive Hotel Adjusted EBITDA during the second quarter of 2021 as demand trends continued to rapidly accelerate. Hilton Waikoloa Village and Hilton Hawaiian Village achieved occupancy of 78% and 62%, respectively, for the second quarter and occupancy of 89% and 84% in June 2021, respectively, with rate increasing across both hotels by 2% from June 2019;
  • Orlando: All of Park’s Orlando hotels are open and benefited from leisure demand as well as the return of some group demand during the quarter, resulting in combined occupancy of 56% in June 2021 and 48% for the quarter;

  • Southern California:  All of Park’s hotels in Southern California are open, and as statewide restrictions were further lifted during the second quarter, the hotels benefited from an increase in leisure demand, resulting in occupancy in June 2021 of 75%.

  • Key West: Casa Marina, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, and The Reach Key West, Curio Collection, are both open and continued to benefit from leisure transient demand, resulting in occupancy of 92% in June 2021 and for the quarter.

  • Chicago: The W Chicago - City Center, Hilton Garden Inn Chicago/Oak Brook Terrace and Hilton Chicago reopened during the second quarter of 2021 as state and local restrictions were lifted. The W Chicago – Lakeshore and Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Suites have remained open throughout the pandemic, primarily due to demand from airline crews and weekend leisure travel demand, with occupancy of 44% and 63% in June 2021, respectively, and 36% and 62% for the quarter, respectively;

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Park and its hotel managers have taken several proactive steps to reduce its burn rate, increase liquidity and mitigate the effects of COVID-19 on its business, including reducing labor and other operating expenses and cutting budgeted expenditures for 2021 to approximately $40 million for maintenance projects. As a result of these measures, coupled with expected continued leisure demand and the continued distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, Park's portfolio generated positive Hotel Adjusted EBITDA during the second quarter. In June 2021, Park broke even at the corporate level and anticipates positive cash flow for the third quarter, based on current trends.

Park’s Net Debt as of June 30, 2021 was $4.4 billion. Following the sales of the Hotel Indigo San Diego Gaslamp Quarter, Courtyard Washington Capitol Hill Navy Yard and Hotel Adagio, Autograph Collection, Park reduced its outstanding debt by $223 million. Park's current liquidity is over $1.8 billion, including approximately $1.1 billion of available capacity under the Company's Revolver. As a result of the expected sale of the Le Meridien San Francisco, Park expects to further reduce its outstanding debt by approximately $208 million.

Full-Year 2021 Outlook

Given the continued economic uncertainty, travel restrictions and rapidly changing circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Park is not providing an outlook for full-year 2021 at this time.

The Company’s ability to predict future operating results remains significantly impacted by the current COVID-19 pandemic. Park expects that the trends affecting the economy will continue to depress hotel operating results across the portfolio. While recent trends have shown signs of improvement, the economic environment continues to lack sufficient clarity at this time to provide accurate guidance.

DEFINITIONS

Pro-forma

The Company presents certain data for its consolidated hotels on a pro-forma hotel basis as supplemental information for investors: Pro-forma Hotel Revenues, Pro-forma RevPAR, Pro-forma Total RevPAR, Pro-forma Occupancy, Pro-forma ADR, Pro-forma Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Pro-forma Hotel Adjusted EBITDA Margin.  The Company presents pro-forma hotel results to help the Company and its investors evaluate the ongoing operating performance of its hotels. The Company’s pro-forma metrics exclude results from property dispositions that have occurred through August 5, 2021 and include results from property acquisitions as though such acquisitions occurred on the earliest period presented.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin

Earnings (loss) before interest expense, taxes and depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), presented herein, reflects net income (loss) excluding depreciation and amortization, interest income, interest expense, income taxes and interest expense, income tax and depreciation and amortization included in equity in earnings (losses) from investments in affiliates.

Adjusted EBITDA, presented herein, is calculated as EBITDA, as previously defined, further adjusted to exclude:

  • Gains or losses on sales of assets for both consolidated and unconsolidated investments;
  • Costs associated with hotel acquisitions or dispositions expensed during the period;
  • Severance expense;
  • Share-based compensation expense;
  • Impairment losses and casualty gains or losses; and
  • Other items that management believes are not representative of the Company’s current or future operating performance.

Hotel Adjusted EBITDA measures hotel-level results before debt service, depreciation and corporate expenses of the Company’s consolidated hotels, which excludes hotels owned by unconsolidated affiliates, and is a key measure of the Company’s profitability. The Company presents Hotel Adjusted EBITDA to help the Company and its investors evaluate the ongoing operating performance of the Company’s consolidated hotels.

Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated as Hotel Adjusted EBITDA divided by total hotel revenue.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin are not recognized terms under United States (“U.S.”) GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss) or other measures of financial performance or liquidity derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the Company’s definitions of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

The Company believes that EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin provide useful information to investors about the Company and its financial condition and results of operations for the following reasons: (i) EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin are among the measures used by the Company’s management team to make day-to-day operating decisions and evaluate its operating performance between periods and between REITs by removing the effect of its capital structure (primarily interest expense) and asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from its operating results; and (ii) EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a common performance measure to compare results or estimate valuations across companies in the industry.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Hotel Adjusted EBITDA and Hotel Adjusted EBITDA margin have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered either in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss) or other methods of analyzing the Company’s operating performance and results as reported under U.S. GAAP.

Nareit FFO attributable to stockholders, Adjusted FFO attributable to stockholders Nareit FFO per share - diluted and Adjusted FFO per share - diluted

Nareit FFO attributable to stockholders and Nareit FFO per diluted share (defined as set forth below) are presented herein as non-GAAP measures of the Company’s performance. The Company calculates funds from (used in) operations (“FFO”) attributable to stockholders for a given operating period in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“Nareit”), as net income (loss) attributable to stockholders (calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP), excluding depreciation and amortization, gains or losses on sales of assets, impairment, and the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles, plus adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures are calculated to reflect the Company’s pro rata share of the FFO of those entities on the same basis. As noted by Nareit in its December 2018 “Nareit Funds from Operations White Paper – 2018 Restatement,” since real estate values historically have risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors have considered presentation of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by themselves. For these reasons, Nareit adopted the FFO metric in order to promote an industry-wide measure of REIT operating performance. The Company believes Nareit FFO provides useful information to investors regarding its operating performance and can facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between REITs. The Company’s presentation may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the terms in accordance with the current Nareit definition, or that interpret the current Nareit definition differently. The Company calculates Nareit FFO per diluted share as Nareit FFO divided by the number of fully diluted shares outstanding during a given operating period.

The Company also presents Adjusted FFO attributable to stockholders and Adjusted FFO per diluted share when evaluating its performance because management believes that the exclusion of certain additional items described below provides useful supplemental information to investors regarding the Company’s ongoing operating performance. Management historically has made the adjustments detailed below in evaluating its performance and in its annual budget process. Management believes that the presentation of Adjusted FFO provides useful supplemental information that is beneficial to an investor’s complete understanding of operating performance. The Company adjusts Nareit FFO attributable to stockholders for the following items, which may occur in any period, and refers to this measure as Adjusted FFO attributable to stockholders:

·Costs associated with hotel acquisitions or dispositions expensed during the period;

  • Severance expense;
  • Share-based compensation expense;
  • Other items that management believes are not representative of the Company’s current or future operating performance.

Net Debt

Net debt, presented herein, is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company uses to evaluate its financial leverage. Net debt is calculated as (i) long-term debt, including current maturities and excluding unamortized deferred financing costs; and (ii) the Company’s share of investments in affiliate debt, excluding unamortized deferred financing costs; reduced by (a) cash and cash equivalents; and (b) restricted cash and cash equivalents.

The Company believes Net debt provides useful information about its indebtedness to investors as it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to compare the indebtedness of companies. Net debt should not be considered as a substitute to debt presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Net debt may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure of other companies.

Occupancy

Occupancy represents the total number of room nights sold divided by the total number of room nights available at a hotel or group of hotels. Room nights available to guests have not been adjusted for suspended or reduced operations at certain of Park’s hotels as a result of COVID-19. Occupancy measures the utilization of the Company’s hotels’ available capacity. Management uses occupancy to gauge demand at a specific hotel or group of hotels in a given period. Occupancy levels also help management determine achievable Average Daily Rate (“ADR”) levels as demand for rooms increases or decreases.

Average Daily Rate

ADR represents rooms revenue divided by total number of room nights sold in a given period. ADR measures average room price attained by a hotel and ADR trends provide useful information concerning the pricing environment and the nature of the customer base of a hotel or group of hotels. ADR is a commonly used performance measure in the hotel industry, and management uses ADR to assess pricing levels that the Company is able to generate by type of customer, as changes in rates have a more pronounced effect on overall revenues and incremental profitability than changes in occupancy, as described above.

Revenue per Available Room

Revenue per Available Room (“RevPAR”) represents rooms revenue divided by the total number of room nights available to guests for a given period. Room nights available to guests have not been adjusted for suspended or reduced operations at certain of Park’s hotels as a result of COVID-19. Management considers RevPAR to be a meaningful indicator of the Company’s performance as it provides a metric correlated to two primary and key factors of operations at a hotel or group of hotels: occupancy and ADR. RevPAR is also a useful indicator in measuring performance over comparable periods.

Total RevPAR

Total RevPAR represents rooms, food and beverage and other hotel revenues divided by the total number of room nights available to guests for a given period. Room nights available to guests have not been adjusted for suspended or reduced operations at certain of Park’s hotels as a result of COVID-19. Management considers Total RevPAR to be a meaningful indicator of the Company’s performance as approximately one-third of revenues are earned from food and beverage and other hotel revenues. Total RevPAR is also a useful indicator in measuring performance over comparable periods.
