Belmond

Belmond Ltd. (NYSE: BEL), owners, part-owners or managers of 47 luxury hotel, restaurant, train and river cruise properties, including one scheduled for a 2018 opening in London, which operate in 24 countries, today announced its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017.

Roeland Vos, president and chief executive officer, remarked: “Our underlying operational performance continued to advance through the third quarter of 2017. Notable year-over-year growth was again recorded in our European hotels, with good demand for our properties in Italy, Spain and Russia continuing from the first half of the year. We have been particularly pleased with the ongoing strength of our safaris and portfolio of trains and cruises worldwide, including Belmond Grand Hibernian, which we launched in the same period last year.

"Challenging conditions in Brazil this year, coupled with the Olympics taking place in the third quarter of last year, resulted in a significant fall in EBITDA from that country, albeit mitigated by a number of cost reduction initiatives. Economic data point to a gradual improvement in the Brazilian economy, and we expect to see a moderate improvement in results from next year. Elsewhere, we are heartened that enhanced revenue-driving initiatives coupled with healthy demand has seen EBITDA for the portfolio increase, with adjusted EBITDA excluding Brazil up 8%.

"A number of key projects were delivered in the third quarter and serve as examples of our continued progress against our strategic growth plan. Our new website went live, as scheduled, and we continued to make good progress with our CRM program. Our exciting new brand campaign 'The Art of Belmond' launched as planned, supported by global media and marketing activities to drive even greater brand awareness. We look forward to the benefit of all these initiatives as we move into next year.

"Looking ahead, as we factor in the increased headwinds we have been experiencing in Brazil we expect to come in at the low end of our previously guided range for constant currency RevPAR growth and now expect to finish the year with growth of between 0% and 2%."

Third Quarter 2017 Operating Results

Revenue for the third quarter of 2017 was $183.0 million, a $0.7 million decrease from revenue for the third quarter of 2016. In constant currency, revenue for the third quarter of 2017 decreased $3.8 million or 2% from the third quarter of 2016. The year-over-year decrease comes principally from the Company's two hotels in Brazil which have been impacted by the political and economic instability in the country coupled with a comparison period when both hotels recorded exceptionally high revenue as a result of Rio de Janeiro hosting the Summer Olympics. Excluding Brazil, revenue for the third quarter of 2017 increased $9.6 million or 6% on a constant currency basis from the third quarter of 2016.

Same store RevPAR for owned hotels for the third quarter of 2017 decreased 1% from the prior-year quarter. On a constant currency basis, same store RevPAR for owned hotels decreased 3% from the prior-year quarter as a result of a 2 percentage point decrease in occupancy offset by a 2% increase in average daily rate ("ADR").

Net earnings attributable to Belmond Ltd. for the third quarter of 2017 were $7.8 million ($0.08 per common share), which compared to net earnings attributable to Belmond Ltd. of $22.9 million ($0.23 per common share) for the third quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2017 was $62.2 million, a $3.5 million or 5% decrease from adjusted EBITDA of $65.7 million for the third quarter of 2016. In constant currency, adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2017 decreased $4.5 million or 7% from the third quarter of 2016. Excluding Brazil, adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2017 on a constant currency basis increased $4.6 million or 8% from the third quarter of 2016.

Adjusted net earnings from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2017 were $15.5 million ($0.15 per common share), a $7.8 million decrease from adjusted net earnings from continuing operations of $23.3 million ($0.23 per common share) for the third quarter of 2016.

In September the islands of Anguilla and St Martin were hit by Hurricanes Irma and Jose when both Belmond La Samanna on St Martin and Belmond Cap Juluca on Anguilla were closed for the season. While there is still great uncertainty associated with St Martin and the speed of its recovery, based on our preliminary assessment, we anticipate that Belmond La Samanna will re-open in the fourth quarter of 2018. Belmond Cap Juluca is undergoing planned renovations and we also currently expect to re-open the resort in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Both properties are included in Belmond's global insurance program which provides a combined property damage and twelve month business interruption cover of $30.0 million. In addition, Belmond La Samanna has a separate property damage insurance policy of Euro 4.9 million ($5.8 million) covering the eight villas at the resort.

We have made preliminary assessments regarding the nature and extent of the damage sustained and we are preparing the insurance claim. Based on our preliminary estimate at this time, we anticipate that the property damage elements of the claim alone could absorb the available cover, which therefore would not be sufficient to cover business interruption claims of approximately $8.0 million to $10.0 million over the next 12 months. A deductible of $1.3 million has been expensed in the third quarter.

The Company also believes this situation presents an opportunity to re-examine proposed capital expenditures for Belmond Cap Juluca and Belmond La Samanna, potentially increasing the scope of the projects but also increasing the impact of the ultimate build-outs. This re-evaluation, which will continue to be updated, is subject to a number of uncertainties, such as the speed of the recovery of St Martin and Anguilla and the impact of the hurricane on fuel, transportation and labor prices over the coming year.

During the quarter, the Company agreed to sell its shares in Northern Belle Limited, which owns the Belmond Northern Belle rolling stock, for £2.5 million ($3.4 million) to a joint venture that operates other rail charter operations in the UK. This business was operating at a break-even level of EBITDA and was considered non-core to our trains and cruises segment. This sale closed on November 2, 2017 and no gain or loss is expected to be recorded upon completion.

In October 2017, the Company provided notice of termination to the owner of Belmond Orcaella in respect of its charter agreement that is to be effective by early November. This business was operating at a loss and in the nine months to September 30, 2017 had contributed an adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.8 million. The Company continues to own its Road to Mandalay vessel and to operate that cruise business in Myanmar.

Third Quarter 2017 Business Unit Results

Owned hotels:

Europe:

For the third quarter of 2017, revenue from owned hotels was $96.7 million, an increase of $4.4 million or 5% from $92.3 million for the third quarter of 2016. In constant currency, revenue for the region for the third quarter of 2017 increased $2.6 million or 3% from the prior year quarter primarily due to a $1.8 million or 3% revenue increase for the Company's Italian hotels and a $0.9 million or 11% increase at Belmond La Residencia, Mallorca, Spain. Revenue growth for the Company's Italian hotels was largely driven by the performances of Belmond Hotel Cipriani, Venice, Italy, which benefited from the Biennale Arts Festival that takes place every other year in Venice, and Belmond Hotel Splendido, Portofino, Italy, which saw an increase in rates year-over-year following the addition of balconies to twelve of its rooms in March 2017. Growth in revenue at Belmond La Residencia was primarily due to an increase in rates following the addition of six new suites.

In constant currency, same store RevPAR for owned hotels in the region increased 6% from the prior-year quarter as a result of an 8% increase in ADR offset by a 2 percentage point fall in occupancy.

Adjusted EBITDA for the region for the quarter of $48.7 million represented an increase of $3.1 million or 7% from $45.6 million for the third quarter of 2016. In constant currency, revenue for the region for the third quarter increased $2.8 million or 6% from the prior year quarter mainly due to a $2.6 million or 7% increase in adjusted EBITDA at the Company's Italian hotels and a $0.6 million or 14% increase in adjusted EBITDA at Belmond La Residencia, Mallorca.

North America:

Revenue from owned hotels for the third quarter of 2017 was $32.9 million, up $2.3 million or 8% from $30.6 million for the third quarter of 2016. In constant currency, revenue for the region for the third quarter of 2017 increased $2.3 million or 8% from the prior year quarter primarily due to revenue growth of $0.7 million or 4% at Belmond Charleston Place, Charleston, South Carolina, and $1.5 million from the newly acquired Belmond Cap Juluca, Anguilla. Belmond Charleston Place continued to benefit from group business and also saw an increase in demand from leisure travelers attracted to the solar eclipse in August. However, stronger year-over-year growth was hindered by cancellations after the South Carolina Governor's declaration of a state of emergency in advance of Hurricane Irma reaching the state, resulting in $1.2 million in lost revenue.

In constant currency, same store RevPAR for owned hotels in the region increased 2% from the prior-year quarter due to a 5% increase in ADR offset by a 2 percentage point decrease in occupancy.

Adjusted EBITDA for the region for the quarter was $2.3 million, a decrease of $0.9 million or 28% from $3.2 million for the third quarter of 2016. In constant currency, adjusted EBITDA for the region for the third quarter of 2017 decreased $1.0 million or 31% primarily as a result of $0.7 million in losses at Belmond Cap Juluca that were anticipated in its seasonal quiet period prior to closure for renovation at the end of August 2017.

Rest of world:

Revenue from owned hotels for the third quarter of 2017 was $26.8 million, a decrease of $10.2 million or 28% from $37.0 million for the third quarter of 2016. In constant currency, revenue for the third quarter of 2017 decreased $12.0 million or 32% from the prior year quarter, principally as a result of decline in revenue of $13.5 million or 56% at the Company's two Brazilian properties. This resulted from a combination of exceptionally high revenue in the third quarter of 2016 due to the Summer Olympics held in Rio de Janeiro and the impact in the third quarter of 2017 of continued political and economic instability in the country. This was partially offset by an increase in revenue of $0.4 million or 13% at Belmond Safaris, Botswana which benefited from refurbishment in 2016 and 2017 that has been well received by the media and guests. Additionally, revenue at Belmond La Résidence d'Angkor, Siem Reap, Cambodia, contributed a $0.6 million increase in revenue following a full renovation of the property in 2016.

In constant currency, same store RevPAR for owned hotels decreased 31% from the prior-year quarter as a result of a 5 percentage point decrease in occupancy and 23% decrease in ADR.

Adjusted EBITDA for the region for the quarter of $3.5 million decreased $7.8 million or 69% from adjusted EBITDA of $11.3 million for the prior-year quarter. In constant currency, adjusted EBITDA for the region decreased $8.5 million or 75% from the prior-year quarter largely as a result of an adjusted EBITDA decrease of $9.1 million or 104% at the Company's two Brazilian properties.

Owned trains & cruises:

Revenue for the third quarter of 2017 was $23.7 million, up $4.5 million or 23% from $19.2 million for the third quarter of 2016. In constant currency, revenue increased $4.9 million or 26% primarily as a result of the Belmond Grand Hibernian train in Ireland, which commenced its first full year of operations in April 2017 and recorded $3.2 million of revenue for the third quarter. Additionally, the Belmond Royal Scotsman train in Scotland grew revenue by $1.1 million or 39% year-over-year following high demand and the addition of a spa car and four new berths.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $5.4 million, a $2.2 million or 69% increase from adjusted EBITDA of $3.2 million for the third quarter of 2016 largely due to adjusted EBITDA growth for Belmond Royal Scotsman and Belmond Grand Hibernian of $1.0 million and $0.7 million, respectively.

Management fees:

Adjusted EBITDA from management fees for the third quarter of 2017 was $4.7 million, an increase of $0.1 million or 2% from $4.6 million for the third quarter of 2016.

Share of pre-tax earnings from unconsolidated companies:

Adjusted share of pre-tax earnings from unconsolidated companies for the third quarter of 2017 was $6.0 million, a decrease of $0.7 million or 10% against $6.7 million for the third quarter of 2016 due to an adjusted EBITDA decrease of $0.7 million or 13% for the Company's Peruvian train joint venture, PeruRail, as a result of increases in fuel costs and other operating expenses.

Central overheads:

For the third quarter of 2017, adjusted central overheads of $7.0 million were $0.6 million or 9% higher than adjusted central overheads of $6.4 million for the prior-year quarter mainly due to increased development and other corporate headcount to support the strategic growth plan.

Depreciation and amortization:

For the third quarter of 2017, depreciation and amortization of $17.0 million was $3.9 million or 30% higher than depreciation and amortization of $13.1 million for the prior-year quarter primarily as a result of the recent completion of various capital projects and accelerated depreciation expense to write-off assets that are expected to be replaced.

Investments

The Company continued its strategy of disciplined re-investment in core assets and projects with attractive forecasted returns. During the third quarter of 2017, the Company invested a total of $15.6 million in its portfolio, including $2.6 million on the full refurbishment of the Pergula Restaurant at Belmond Copacabana Palace, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; $1.4 million at Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada, Mexico for the renovation of 37 rooms and the Andanza restaurant; $1.3 million at Belmond Villa Sant' Andrea, Taormina Mare, Italy for the creation of three new suites and a boardroom; $1.1 million at Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel, Cape Town, South Africa largely for the refurbishment of the tea lounge, veranda and terrace; and $1.4 million for corporate projects, which included the Company's new enterprise resource planning system and website.

Balance Sheet

At September 30, 2017, the Company had total debt of $705.1 million and cash balances of $212.5 million, resulting in total net debt of $492.6 million and a ratio of net debt to trailing-twelve-months adjusted EBITDA of 4.0 times, which compared to net debt of $435.1 million and a ratio of net debt to trailing-twelve-months adjusted EBITDA of 3.4 times at December 31, 2016.
