Ryman Hospitality Properties, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2020 Results

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ryman Hospitality Properties, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/207691790/composite RHP -1.57% , 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 second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Second Quarter 2020 Highlights:

  • Second quarter 2020 gross advanced room night bookings of approximately 733,000 room nights for all future years

  • Year to date rebooked room nights through June 30, 2020 of approximately 552,600 room nights or approximately 40% of total room nights canceled related to COVID-19

  • Successfully reopened 4 of 5 Gaylord Hotels in June 2020; Gaylord National remains closed

  • Successfully reopened all 4 Ole Red venues in June including the brand's newest location in Orlando, Florida

  • Ryman Auditorium and Grand Ole Opry House opened for daytime tours and retail sales. The venues remain closed for concerts and events

Colin Reed, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ryman Hospitality Properties, said, "After temporarily closing all five of our Gaylord Hotels in late March, as well as all live entertainment locations, we successfully reopened most of our hospitality and entertainment operations during June. Across our locations, we have implemented enhanced cleaning standards and social distancing protocols as we move deliberately through each stage of our reopening process. We are encouraged by early business levels and the response we have received from guests across our hospitality and entertainment portfolios.

"Our unique hotel assets are serving us well through this unprecedented period, allowing us to take advantage of the large footprint and diverse amenities that each of our locations possess. In the near-term, we are focused on regional transient demand as customers seek 'stay-cation' opportunities to balance their desire to venture beyond their homes against the continued short-term need to restrict travel in this environment. Our pool offerings and other amenities, including the open and expansive spaces we provide, offer an important resource to families and others looking to travel safely and comfortably.

"Not surprisingly, group cancellations continue as social distancing and travel restrictions weigh on this sector, but re-bookings are gaining momentum. We have also kept expenses to a minimum and in so doing have improved our cash burn rate, benefiting our liquidity. In fact, our actual cash burn rate in the quarter was over 20% lower than our initial estimate in May and 10% lower than the estimate we provided to you in June.

"As in previous periods of great uncertainty, including September 11, the Great Financial Crisis, and the Nashville flood of 2010, our Board of Directors and management team will navigate this crisis by focusing on our core differentiators, pursuing opportunities to strengthen our relationship with meeting planners, and ensuring we have the liquidity and credit facility covenant amendments required."

Our Ole Red locations in Tishomingo, Gatlinburg, and Nashville reopened in May and June at reduced capacities following applicable local and state guidelines. We recently reopened the Grand Ole Opry and Ryman Auditorium for tours, also per local health guidelines, and we will continue to monitor developments with these guidelines, taking the next steps to bring back concerts and other public events as local public health guidelines and demand permit. During the quarter we also made the difficult but necessary decision to terminate the planned acquisition of the Block 21 complex in Austin, Texas."

Corporate and Other Segment

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, and 2019, the Company reported the following:

(1) Total COVID-19 related costs were approximately $0.3 million and $0.5 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, and consisted primarily of wages and benefits costs for furloughed employees.

Reed concluded, "As we continue to manage our way through this difficult period, I want to recognize and celebrate the tremendous efforts our employees across our operated businesses are making every day. Our Company, through their continued effort and dedication, is aggressively responding and quickly adapting to the unprecedented challenges this pandemic has presented to all of us. The feedback from our customers, as well as local and state officials, has positioned our Company as a leader during this time.

While we all understand that COVID-19 has had a significant impact on our ability to fully return to business as usual, we remain confident that we have ample liquidity to weather an extended period of disruption, and we remain committed to continuing to control our expenses and adapting to the current business environment."

Dividend Update

The Company suspended its regular quarterly dividend payments for the remainder of 2020. The Board of Directors will consider a future dividend as permitted by our credit agreement. Any future dividend is subject to the Board of Director's determinations as to the amount and number of distributions and the timing thereof.

Balance Sheet/Liquidity Update
As of June 30, 2020, the Company had total debt outstanding of $2,576.3 million, net of unamortized deferred financing costs, and unrestricted cash of $82.4 million. As of June 30, 2020, $25.0 million of borrowings were drawn under the revolving credit line of the Company's credit facility, and the lending banks had issued $0.9 million in letters of credit, which left $674.1 million of availability for borrowing under the credit facility.

As previously disclosed, the Company has taken steps to both preserve and maximize liquidity in this environment while also investing for the future. These steps included the suspension or elimination of $82 million of hotel capital projects for 2020, in addition to delaying the start of the previously announced Gaylord Rockies expansion. The expansion at Gaylord Palms continues as scheduled to service the anticipated future group customer demand. We expect this expansion to be complete in summer 2021.

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 and subsequent filings. 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 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. Room nights available to guests include nights the hotels are closed. 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. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, the calculation of RevPAR and Total RevPAR in our tabular presentations has not been changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting hotel closures and is consistent with prior periods. For the second quarter 2020, we also disclosed RevPAR only for the period the hotels were open. The closure of our Gaylord Hotel properties has resulted in the significant decrease in performance reflected in these metrics for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the prior-year periods.

Calculation of GAAP Margin Figures
We calculate segment or property-level Operating Income (Loss) Margin by dividing segment or property-level GAAP Operating Income (Loss) by segment or property-level GAAP Revenue, respectively.

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 (loss) (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 investments in unconsolidated affiliates caused by a decrease in the value of the 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 lease expense; equity-based compensation expense; impairment charges that do not meet the NAREIT definition above; credit losses on held-to-maturity securities; any transaction costs of acquisitions; interest income on bonds; pension settlement charges; pro rata Adjusted EBITDAre from unconsolidated joint ventures, and any other adjustments we have identified in this release. We then exclude noncontrolling interests in consolidated 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 (loss), is beneficial to an investor's complete understanding of our operating performance. Beginning in the first quarter 2020 with the Company's adoption of ASU 2016-13, "Financial Instruments - Credit Losses - Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments," our definition of Adjusted EBITDAre includes an adjustment for credit loss on held-to-maturity securities; such charges in previous quarters were included in impairment charges that do not meet the NAREIT definition.

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.

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 (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs and debt discounts), 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. 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 lease expense, credit loss on held-to-maturity securities, amortization of debt discounts or premiums and amortization of deferred financing costs, pension settlement charges, additional pro rata adjustments from unconsolidated joint ventures, (gains) losses on other assets, transaction costs on acquisitions, deferred income tax expense (benefit), and (gains) losses on extinguishment of debt. To calculate Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders (excluding maintenance capex), we then exclude FF&E reserve for managed properties and maintenance capital expenditures for non-managed properties. FFO available to common shareholders, Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders, and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders (excluding maintenance capex) exclude the ownership portion of Gaylord Rockies joint venture not controlled or owned by the Company. Beginning in the first quarter 2020 with the Company's adoption of ASU 2016-13, "Financial Instruments - Credit Losses - Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments," our definition of Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders includes an adjustment for credit loss on held-to-maturity securities; such charges in previous quarters were included in impairment charges that do not meet the NAREIT definition.

We believe that the presentation of FFO available to common shareholders, Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders, and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders (excluding maintenance capex) provide useful information to investors regarding the performance of our ongoing operations because they are 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, Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders, and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders (excluding maintenance capex) 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 and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders (excluding maintenance capex) is 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, FFO available to common shareholders, Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders (excluding maintenance capex) 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, FFO available to common shareholders, Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders, and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders (excluding maintenance capex), 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, FFO available to common shareholders, Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders, and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders (excluding maintenance capex) 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, FFO available to common shareholders, Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders, and Adjusted FFO available to common shareholders (excluding maintenance capex) 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 (Loss) Margin, Operating Income (Loss), Operating Income (Loss) 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.
