Item 2.02.Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On February 18, 2020, Sunstone Hotel Investors, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release regarding its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2019. The press release referred to supplemental financial information that is available on the Company’s website, free of charge, at www.sunstonehotels.com. A copy of the press release and the supplemental financial information are attached hereto as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, respectively, and are incorporated herein by this reference.

The information furnished pursuant to this Item 2.02, including Exhibit 99.1 and Exhibit 99.2, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities under that Section, and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any filing of the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.

Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On February 13, 2020, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company approved a 2020 cash bonus program (the “2020 Program”) applicable to its named executive officers, including its chief executive officer (“CEO”), John V. Arabia, and its executive vice presidents (“EVP”), Bryan A. Giglia, Marc A. Hoffman, Robert C. Springer and David M. Klein. Prior to its approval, the Compensation Committee engaged in a review of its incentive compensation program with the assistance of its independent compensation consultant, FPL Associates.

Under the 2020 Program, the executives will be eligible to earn cash bonuses based on the Company’s achievement in 2020 of four performance goals relating to (i) Adjusted Funds From Operations (a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure defined in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K); (ii) ratio of debt to undepreciated book value of assets; (iii) comparable revenue per available room (“RevPAR”) growth compared to 2019; and (iv) the change in gross book value of Long-Term Relevant Real Estate® compared to total gross book value. The measurement of the performance goals are subject to adjustments as may be determined and approved at the sole discretion of the Compensation Committee. Each executive’s cash bonus will also be based on the executive’s achievement of individual performance goals, which include but are not limited to, individual department objectives, the advancement of the specified Company and departmental goals, and the advancement of various environmental, social and governance initiatives (although no minimum bonus is guaranteed and any bonus may equal zero in any given year). In determining each executive’s bonus under the 2020 Program, the goals will be weighted as follows for the CEO and EVP level executives:

CEO

Goal #1

Adjusted Funds from Operations

42.5%

40.0%

Goal #2

Additionally, under the 2020 Program, the cash bonuses will be based on the attainment of the foregoing performance goals with a threshold level equal to 62.5% of base salary (57.5% for Mr. Klein and 75% for Mr. Arabia), a target level equal to 112.5% of base salary (92.5% for Mr. Klein and 162.5% for Mr. Arabia), and a high level equal to 162.5% of base salary (127.5% for Mr. Klein and 250% for Mr. Arabia), although no minimum bonus is guaranteed to any executive and any bonus may equal zero in any given year. The foregoing percentages are subject to annual adjustments as may be determined and approved at the sole discretion of the Compensation Committee.

Excluding the effects of the one hotel sold during the fourth quarter of 2019 and the three hotels sold during the fourth quarter of 2018, the decrease in Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders per diluted share would have remained constant at 10.3%.

 

Full Year 2019 Operational Results (as compared to Full Year 2018):

 

·

Net Income: Net income decreased 44.9% to $142.8 million. Excluding the effects of the noncash impairment losses recorded in both 2019 and 2018, the one hotel sold during 2019 and the six hotels sold during 2018, net income would have decreased 7.4%.

·

RevPAR: 20 Hotel Comparable Portfolio RevPAR increased 1.9% to $196.08.

John Arabia,  President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “During the fourth quarter, our portfolio achieved better-than-expected operating results and superior RevPAR performance relative to the U.S. lodging average. We continue to realize the benefits from the long-term investments we made over the past few years as they have resulted in value appreciation and earnings growth. The better-than-expected fourth quarter performance resulted in RevPAR growth and profitability above the high-end of our guidance range.”

 

Mr. Arabia continued, “We expect the challenging operating environment – the combination of modest revenue growth and elevated expense growth – to persist in 2020, resulting in pressure on hotel profitability. While the operating environment presents short-term challenges, we remain excited about our geographic footprint, which should result in attractive growth relative to our peers. More

importantly, our quality portfolio and low-leverage balance sheet provide us with several avenues in which to create long-term stockholder value.”

2019 Highlights

 

·

Enhanced the overall quality of the portfolio and increased the concentration of Long-Term Relevant Real Estate® through the disposition of one hotel with prior year RevPAR that was 21% below the 2019 20 Hotel Comparable Portfolio RevPAR of $196.08.

·

Completed $96 million of capital improvements throughout the portfolio, including:

o

Renovation of all 1,190 guestrooms and suites at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront, including the replacement of guestroom soft goods and renovation of the hotel’s corridors;

o

Renovation of all 622 guestrooms and suites at the Renaissance Harborplace, including the conversion of nearly half of the bathtubs to showers;

o

Addition of 17 new guestrooms at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco through the conversion of underutilized corridor space; and

o

Investment of over $9 million in a variety of environmental and sustainability projects, including additional LED lighting retrofits, installation of low-flow plumbing fixtures and bulk amenity dispensers, as well as several building system upgrades intended to reduce overall energy consumption.

·

Returned over $216 million to the Company’s common stockholders, including over $166 million in cash dividends and $50 million through the repurchase of 3.8 million shares of the Company’s common stock at an average price of $13.22 per share.

·

Further enhanced the Company’s already strong liquidity position, ending 2019 with over $816 million of total unrestricted cash on hand. After adjusting for the payment of common and preferred stock dividends in January 2020, the Company has over $680 million of total unrestricted cash available for future investment.

 

Recent Developments

 

Subsequent to the end of the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company repurchased 292,266 shares of its common stock at an average price of $12.66 per share for a total purchase price of $3.7 million. On February 13, 2020, the Company's Board of Directors authorized an increase to the existing stock repurchase program to acquire up to $500.0 million of the Company's common and preferred stock. The authorization has no stated expiration date. Future purchases will depend on various factors, including the Company's capital needs as well as the price of the Company's common and preferred stock.

 

On February 13, 2020 the Company’s Board of Directors reauthorized the “At the Market” (“ATM”) program, allowing the Company to issue common stock up to an aggregate offering amount of $300.0 million. The reauthorization has no stated expiration date.

 

Balance Sheet/Liquidity Update

 

As of December 31, 2019, the Company had $865.0 million of cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash of $48.1 million, total assets of $3.9 billion, including $2.9 billion of net investments in hotel properties, total consolidated debt of $974.9 million and stockholders’ equity of $2.6 billion.  

 

Capital Improvements

 

The Company invested $20.7 million and $96.0 million into capital improvements of its portfolio during the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2019, respectively. In 2020, the Company expects to invest approximately $65 million to $85 million into its portfolio. Based on the timing and scope of the 2020 projects, the Company expects approximately $2 million of total revenue displacement related to its major capital improvement projects in 2020. A selection of the Company’s planned 2020 capital improvement projects include:

·

Marriott Portland:  The Company expects to invest approximately $21 million to $23 million, with a portion spent in 2019, to fully reposition the hotel. The project will include the renovation of all existing 249 guestrooms and bathrooms as well as the addition of 9 rooms and a complete redesign of all public spaces, meeting areas and food and beverage outlets. The renovation is intended to better position the hotel to compete with many of the independent and lifestyle hotels that are indicative of the Portland market.

·

Embassy Suites Chicago: The Company completed a renovation of all of the meeting space at the hotel in the first quarter of 2020. In addition, in the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company expects to begin a guestroom renovation which will include the replacement of all soft goods and the conversion of certain bathtubs to showers.

·

Environmental and Sustainability Projects: The Company expects to invest approximately $6 million to $11 million into additional environmental and sustainability projects in 2020, including the installation of solar panels at the Wailea Beach Resort, additional LED lighting retrofits and the modernization of mechanical and other equipment intended to reduce the Company’s overall energy consumption.

2020 Outlook 

 

The Company’s achievement of the anticipated results is subject to risks and uncertainties, including those disclosed in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company’s guidance does not take into account the impact of any unanticipated developments in its business, changes in its operating environment, or any unannounced hotel acquisitions, dispositions, re-brandings, management changes, transition costs, legal settlements, noncash impairment expense, changes in deferred tax assets or valuation allowances, severance costs associated with restructuring hotel services, uninsured property losses, early lease termination costs,  prior year property tax assessments or credits, debt repurchases/repayments, stock repurchases or unannounced financings during 2020. The Company’s 2020 guidance does not include any additional impact from the coronavirus, or any other viral or pandemic incidents, that could have a material impact on travel demand and a negative impact on profitability other than what has already been identified to date. As of the date hereof, the total known revenue loss from cancelations related to the coronavirus is less than $1.0 million and is isolated primarily to the first quarter of 2020.     

 

For the first quarter of 2020, the Company expects:

Detailed reconciliations of Net Income to non-GAAP financial measures are provided later in this release.

 

 

First quarter and full year 2020 guidance are based in part on the following assumptions:

 

·

Full year total revenue displacement of approximately $2 million and full year Adjusted EBITDAre, excluding noncontrolling interest displacement of approximately $1 million related to 2020 major capital investment projects.

·

Full year 20 Hotel Comparable Portfolio Adjusted EBITDAre Margin is expected to decline between 150 basis points and 175 basis points. Full year 20 Hotel Comparable Portfolio Adjusted EBITDAre Margins are negatively impacted by 40 basis points due to a property tax increase and a disputed ground rent increase at the Hilton Times Square.  

·

Full year corporate overhead expense (excluding deferred stock amortization) of approximately $22 million to $23 million.

·

Full year amortization of deferred stock compensation expense of approximately $10 million.

·

Full year interest expense of approximately $47 million, including approximately $3  million in amortization of deferred financing costs and approximately $1 million of finance lease obligation interest.

·

Full year total preferred dividends of $13 million, which includes the Series E and Series F cumulative redeemable preferred stock.

 

Dividend Update

 

On February 17, 2020 the Company’s Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.05 per share of common stock, as well as cash dividends of $0.434375 per share payable to its Series E cumulative redeemable preferred stockholders and $0.403125 per share payable to its Series F cumulative redeemable preferred stockholders. The dividends will be paid on April 15, 2020 to stockholders of record as of March 31, 2020.

 

The Company expects to continue to pay a quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 per share of common stock throughout 2020. Consistent with the Company’s past practice and to the extent that the expected regular quarterly dividends for 2020 do not satisfy the annual distribution requirements, the Company expects to satisfy the annual distribution requirement by paying a “catch-up” dividend in January 2021.  The level of any future quarterly dividends will be determined by the Company’s Board of Directors after considering long-term operating projections, expected capital requirements, and risks affecting the Company’s business. In 2019, the Company declared total cash dividends of $0.74 per share of common stock.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

We present the following non-GAAP financial measures that we believe are useful to investors as key supplemental measures of our operating performance: earnings before interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization for real estate, or EBITDAre;  Adjusted EBITDAre, excluding noncontrolling interest (as defined below); funds from operations attributable to common stockholders, or FFO attributable to common stockholders;  Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders (as defined below); hotel Adjusted EBITDAre; and hotel Adjusted EBITDAre margin.  These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance in accordance with GAAP. In addition, our calculation of these measures may not be comparable to other companies that do not define such terms exactly the same as the Company. These non-GAAP measures are used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP. They should not be considered as alternatives to net income, cash flow

5

 

from operations, or any other operating performance measure prescribed by GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect additional ways of viewing our operations that we believe, when viewed with our GAAP results and the reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. We strongly encourage investors to review our financial information in its entirety and not to rely on a single financial measure.

 

We present EBITDAre in accordance with guidelines established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), as defined in its September 2017 white paper “Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization for Real Estate.” We believe EBITDAre is a useful performance measure to help investors evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period in comparison to our peers. NAREIT defines EBITDAre 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 in the affiliate, and adjustments to reflect the entity’s share of EBITDAre of unconsolidated affiliates.

 

We make additional adjustments to EBITDAre when evaluating our performance because we believe that the exclusion of certain additional items described below provides useful information to investors regarding our operating performance, and that the presentation of 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. In addition, we use both EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre, excluding noncontrolling interest as measures in determining the value of hotel acquisitions and dispositions. 

 

We believe that the presentation of FFO attributable to common stockholders provides useful information to investors regarding our operating performance because it is a measure of our operations without regard to specified noncash items such as real estate depreciation and amortization, any real estate impairment loss and any gain or loss on sale of real estate assets, all of which are based on historical cost accounting and may be of lesser significance in evaluating our current performance. Our presentation of FFO attributable to common stockholders conforms to NAREIT’s definition of “FFO applicable to common shares.” Our 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 than we do.  

 

We also present Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders when evaluating our operating performance because we believe that the exclusion of certain additional items described below provides useful supplemental information to investors regarding our ongoing operating performance, and may facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and our peer companies.

 

We adjust EBITDAre and FFO attributable to common stockholders for the following items, which may occur in any period, and refer to these measures as either Adjusted EBITDAre, excluding noncontrolling interest or Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders:

 

·

Amortization of favorable and unfavorable contracts:  we exclude the noncash amortization of the favorable management contract asset recorded in conjunction with our acquisition of the Hilton Garden Inn Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile, along with the favorable and unfavorable tenant lease contracts, as applicable, recorded in conjunction with our acquisitions of the Boston Park Plaza, the Hilton Garden Inn Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile, the Hyatt Regency San Francisco and the Wailea Beach Resort. We exclude the noncash amortization of favorable and unfavorable contracts because it is based on historical cost accounting and is of lesser significance in evaluating our actual performance for the current period.

 

·

Gains or losses from debt transactions: we exclude the effect of finance charges and premiums associated with the extinguishment of debt, including the acceleration of deferred financing costs from the original issuance of the debt being redeemed or retired because, like interest expense, their removal helps investors evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the impact of our capital structure.

 

·

Acquisition costs: under GAAP, costs associated with completed acquisitions that meet the definition of a business are expensed in the year incurred. We exclude the effect of these costs because we believe they are not reflective of the ongoing performance of the Company or our hotels.

 

·

Cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle:  from time to time, the FASB promulgates new accounting standards that require the consolidated statement of operations to reflect the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle. We exclude these one-time adjustments, which include the accounting impact from prior periods, because they do not reflect our actual performance for that period.

 

·

Other adjustments: we exclude other adjustments that we believe are outside the ordinary course of business because we do not believe these costs reflect our actual performance for the period and/or the ongoing operations of our hotels. Such items may include: lawsuit settlement costs; prior year property tax assessments or credits; the write-off of development

6

 

costs associated with abandoned projects; property-level restructuring, severance and management transition costs; lease terminations; and property insurance proceeds or uninsured losses.

 

In addition, to derive Adjusted EBITDAre, excluding noncontrolling interest we exclude the noncontrolling partner’s pro rata share of the net income (loss) allocated to the Hilton San Diego Bayfront partnership, as well as the noncontrolling partner’s pro rata share of any EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre components.  We  also exclude the noncash expense incurred with the amortization of deferred stock compensation as this expense is based on historical stock prices at the date of grant to our corporate employees and does not reflect the underlying performance of our hotels. In addition, we exclude the amortization of our right-of-use assets and liabilities as these expenses are based on historical cost accounting and do not reflect the actual rent amounts due to the respective lessors or the underlying performance of our hotels. Additionally, we include an adjustment for the cash finance lease expenses recorded on the ground lease at the Courtyard by Marriott Los Angeles (prior to the hotel’s sale in October 2019) and the building lease at the Hyatt Centric Chicago Magnificent Mile. We determined that both of these leases are finance leases, and, therefore, we include a portion of the lease payments each month in interest expense. We adjust EBITDAre for these two finance leases in order to more accurately reflect the actual rent due to both hotels’ lessors in the current period, as well as the operating performance of both hotels.  We  also exclude the effect of gains and losses on the disposition of undepreciated assets because we believe that including them in Adjusted EBITDAre, excluding noncontrolling interest is not consistent with reflecting the ongoing performance of our assets.

 

To derive Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders,  we also exclude the noncash interest on our derivatives and finance lease obligations as we believe that these items are not reflective of our ongoing finance costs. Additionally, we exclude the noncontrolling partner’s pro rata share of any FFO adjustments related to our consolidated Hilton San Diego Bayfront partnership. We also exclude the real estate amortization of our right-of-use assets and liabilities, which includes the amortization of both our finance and operating lease intangibles (with the exception of our corporate operating lease), as these expenses are based on historical cost accounting and do not reflect the actual rent amounts due to the respective lessors or the underlying performance of our hotels. In addition, we exclude changes to deferred tax assets, liabilities or valuation allowances, and income tax benefits or provisions associated with the application of net operating loss carryforwards, uncertain tax positions or with the sale of assets other than real estate investments.

 

In presenting hotel  Adjusted EBITDAre and hotel  Adjusted EBITDAre margins, miscellaneous non-hotel items have been excluded. We believe the calculation of hotel Adjusted EBITDAre results in a more accurate presentation of the hotel Adjusted EBITDAre margins for our hotels, and that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in evaluating our property-level operating performance.  

 

Our 20 Hotel Comparable Portfolio is comprised of all hotels owned by the Company as of December 31, 2019.  We believe that providing comparable hotel data is useful to us and to investors in evaluating our operating performance because this measure helps us and investors evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the fluctuations caused by any acquisitions or dispositions, as well as by those hotels that we classify as held for sale, those hotels that are undergoing a material renovation or repositioning and those hotels whose room counts have materially changed during either the current or prior year. We strongly encourage investors to review our financial information in its entirety and not to rely on a single financial measure.

 

Reconciliations of net income to EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDAre,  excluding noncontrolling interest, FFO attributable to common stockholders and Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders, as well as reconciliations and the components of hotel Adjusted EBITDAre and hotel Adjusted EBITDAre margin are set forth in the following pages of this release.
