News Release
Pebblebrook Hotel Trust Provides Update on Property Sales and Strategic Property Redevelopment Plan

Bethesda, MD, June 3, 2019 - Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (NYSE: PEB) (the “Company”) today announced that it executed a contract to sell the 132-room Hotel Amarano Burbank in Los Angeles, California for approximately $72.9 million to a third party.

The contracted sale price reflects a 15.8x EBITDA multiple and a 5.7% net operating income capitalization rate (after an assumed annual capital reserve of 4.0% of total hotel revenues) based on the hotel’s operating performance for 2018. Based on the trailing 12-month period ended March 2019, the contracted sales price reflects a 16.9x EBITDA multiple and a 5.3% net operating income capitalization rate (after an assumed annual capital reserve of 4.0% of total hotel revenues). Both the EBITDA multiples and net operating income capitalization rates are adjusted for the estimated annualized impact of real estate taxes for California’s Proposition 13.
 
The sale of Hotel Amarano Burbank is subject to normal closing conditions, and the Company offers no assurances that this sale will be completed on these terms, or at all. The Company is targeting to complete the sale in the third quarter of 2019 and continues to be encouraged with pricing levels and overall buyer interest in the investment markets. Following the completion of the sale, the Company’s estimated total net debt to trailing 12-month corporate EBITDA ratio will decline to approximately 4.6 times.

The Company also continues to make progress on its strategic property redevelopment plan and provided the following updates:

Mason & Rook Hotel: On July 1, 2019, Viceroy Hotels & Resorts will become the third-party operator of this 178-room upper-upscale hotel in downtown Washington, D.C. Following the completion of a comprehensive property renovation and improvement program by early 2020, the hotel will become Viceroy Hotel Washington, D.C., a part of the luxury Viceroy Hotels & Resorts brand family; and

Donovan Hotel: On July 1, 2019, Viceroy Hotel & Resorts will become the third-party operator of this 193-room upper-upscale hotel in downtown Washington, D.C. The Company plans to reconcept, redevelop and relaunch this hotel as part of the “Unofficial Z Collection” in 2020.

“We are very excited to bring Viceroy to Washington, D.C. to manage these two unique lifestyle hotels, which have so much upside potential,” noted Jon E. Bortz, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. “We expect that Viceroy will generate significant long-term revenue improvement and increased operating efficiencies at both of these hotels, given their extensive experience operating urban lifestyle hotels including Viceroy Santa Monica, Hotel Zeppelin, Hotel Zelos and Hotel Zetta for our company. In addition to bringing the luxury Viceroy





brand to D.C., we are also excited to create our first ‘Unofficial Z Collection’ hotel on the east coast following the comprehensive and transformative redevelopment and renovation of Donovan Hotel.”

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 trailing twelve-month hotel EBITDA and trailing twelve-month hotel net operating income after capital reserves and an estimated adjustment for the annualized impact of real estate taxes for California's Proposition 13 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 trailing twelve-month EBITDA and trailing twelve-month 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 trailing twelve-month EBITDA and net operating income after capital reserves calculations to net income in accordance with GAAP. Any differences are a result of rounding.
