Overview

We focus primarily on acquiring and owning premium-branded select-service hotels in the upscale and upper midscale segments of the U.S. lodging industry, as these segments are currently defined by Smith Travel Research ("STR"). Since completion of our IPO on February 14, 2011, we have acquired 21 hotels with a total of 2,477 guestrooms for purchase prices aggregating approximately $245.2 million. Currently, we own 82 hotels with a total of 8,674 guestrooms located in 21 states. Except for five hotels, which are subject to ground leases, we own our hotels in fee simple. Our hotels are located in markets in which we have extensive experience and that exhibit multiple demand generators, such as business and corporate headquarters, retail centers, airports and tourist attractions. As of September 30, 2012, we owned 73 hotels and 56.7% of our guestrooms were located in the top 50 metropolitan statistical areas, or MSAs, and 78.2% were located within the top 100 MSAs. The majority of our hotels operate under premium franchise brands owned by Marriott International, Inc. ("Marriott") (Courtyard by Marriott®, Residence Inn by Marriott®, SpringHill Suites by Marriott®, Fairfield Inn by Marriott®, Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott®, and TownePlace Suites by Marriott®), Hilton Worldwide ("Hilton") (DoubleTree by Hilton®, Hampton Inn®, Hampton Inn & Suites®, Homewood Suites® and Hilton Garden Inn®), Intercontinental Hotel Group ("IHG") (Holiday Inn®, Holiday Inn Express®, Holiday Inn Express and Suites® and Staybridge Suites®) and an affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corporation ("Hyatt") (Hyatt Place®).

A substantial majority of our hotels (65 of our 73 hotels as of September 30, 2012) are managed by Interstate Management Company, LLC ("Interstate") pursuant to a hotel management agreement between Interstate, its affiliates and certain of our TRS lessees. In addition, our TRS lessees have entered into hotel management agreements with IHG Management (Maryland) LLC ("IHG Management"), an affiliate of IHG, pursuant to which IHG Management manages one hotel, with Courtyard Management Corporation ("Courtyard Management"), an affiliate of Marriott, pursuant to which Courtyard Management manages one hotel, with HP Hotels Management Company, Inc. ("HP Hotels"), pursuant to which HP Hotels manages two of our hotels, with Kana Hotels, Inc. ("Kana Hotels"), pursuant to which Kana Hotels manages two of our hotels, and with InterMountain Management, LLC ("InterMountain"), pursuant to which InterMountain manages two of our hotels. Our TRS lessees may also employ other hotel managers in the future. We have, and will have, no ownership or economic interest in any of the hotel management companies engaged by our TRS lessees.

Our revenue is derived from hotel operations and consists of room revenue and other hotel operations revenue. As a result of our focus on select-service hotels in the upscale and upper midscale segments of the U.S. lodging industry, substantially all of our revenue is room revenue generated from sales of hotel rooms. We also generate, to a much lesser extent, other hotel operations revenue, which consists of ancillary revenue related to meeting rooms and other guest services provided at our hotels.

Industry Trends and Outlook

Room-night demand in the U.S. lodging industry is correlated to macroeconomic trends. Key drivers of demand include growth in gross domestic product, or GDP, corporate profits, capital investments and employment. We recognize that there are lingering concerns regarding global macroeconomic conditions. We continue to monitor macroeconomic trends, and evaluate their effect on demand for our guestrooms. As a result of scarcity of financing, the severe United States recession and declining hotel industry fundamentals during 2008 and 2009, the current pipeline for new hotel development is limited. Thus, we do not anticipate that we will experience a significant increase in the supply of new hotel rooms in our markets in the near term.


Our Portfolio

As of September 30, 2012, our portfolio consisted of 73 hotels with a total of 7,533 guestrooms. Of these hotels, according to STR's current chain segment designations, 36 hotels containing 4,049 guestrooms are "upscale," 33 hotels containing 3,216 guestrooms are "upper midscale" and four hotels containing 268 guestrooms are "midscale." The following table sets forth certain information for our hotels by franchisor as of September 30, 2012:

(1) We own a 90% controlling interest in the Courtyard by Marriott hotel located in Atlanta, Georgia with the obligation to acquire the remaining 10% interest in approximately four years.
(2) On October 5, 2012, we acquired a portfolio of eight hotels containing 1,043 guestrooms. On October 23, 2012, we acquired a 98 room hotel. These nine hotels are not included in the above table, but are described in additional detail in "Recent Developments."

Results of Operations

Prior to February 14, 2011, the date we completed our IPO, concurrent private placement and formation transactions, neither Summit REIT nor Summit OP had any operations other than the issuance of 1,000 shares of common stock of Summit REIT to our Executive Chairman in connection with Summit REIT's formation and initial capitalization and activity in connection with the IPO and the formation transactions. The discussion below compares the results of our operations for the three months ended September 30, 2012 to the three months ended September 30, 2011, and the results of our operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 to the combined operating results of our Company for the period from February 14, 2011 through September 30, 2011, and the operations of our predecessor for the period from January 1, 2011 through February 13, 2011. The results of operations presented below should be reviewed in conjunction with the condensed consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this report.

Comparison of the Operating Results of Our Company for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2012 to the Operating Results of Our Company for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2011

On May 16, 2012, we sold our three hotels located in Twin Falls, Idaho and on August 15, 2012, we sold our AmericInn hotel in Missoula, Montana. Accordingly, during the reporting periods we classified these hotels in discontinued operations and do not include their operating results in the discussion below.

The following table presents our results of operations for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 and includes the amount of change and percentage change between these periods:

Income from Operations. Income from operations increased by approximately $2.9 million to approximately $5.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012 from approximately $3.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011. This increase was primarily the result of an increase in same-store revenues due to the improving economy and hotel industry fundamentals and renovations made at nine hotels, and accretive income from operations from the twelve hotels acquired in 2011 and 2012. In addition, the rebranding and upgrades that occurred in 2011 at the hotels involved in the arbitration matter with Choice Hotels International, Inc. ("Choice") resulted in improved operating results at these hotels in 2012.


Total Revenue. The following tables set forth key operating metrics for our total portfolio (73 hotels as of September 30, 2012 and 66 hotels as of September 30, 2011) and for our same-store portfolio (61 hotels) for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 (dollars in thousands, except ADR and RevPAR) and the percentage change between those two periods:

(1) Occupancy rate, or occupancy, represents the weighted-average percentage of available guestrooms that were sold during a specified period of time and is calculated by dividing the number of guestrooms sold by the total number of guestrooms available, expressed as a percentage.
(2) Average daily rate, or ADR, represents the weighted-average rate paid for guestrooms sold, calculated by dividing room revenue (i.e., excluding food and beverage revenues or other hotel operations revenues such as telephone, parking and other guest services) by guestrooms sold.
(3) Revenue per available room, or RevPAR, is the product of ADR and occupancy. RevPAR does not include food and beverage revenues or other hotel operations revenues such as telephone, parking and other guest services.
(4) The information in the tables above for our total portfolio for the three months ended September 30, 2012 includes revenues from the seven hotels we acquired during the first nine months of 2012 from July 1, 2012 or the date of acquisition of each hotel through September 30, 2012 and operating information (occupancy, ADR and RevPAR) for each of the hotels for the period in which it was owned by us. Accordingly, the information does not reflect a full three months of operations for the hotels acquired in the third quarter of 2012. Furthermore, the tables do not include the operating results in any period of our three hotels located in Twin Falls, Idaho that were sold on May 16, 2012, and one hotel located in Missoula, Montana that was sold on August 15, 2012.

Total revenue, including room and other hotel operations revenue, increased $10.8 million, from $40.4 million in 2011 to $ 51.2 million in 2012. The increase in revenues is due to an increase in same-store revenues of $4.7 million due to the improving economy and hotel industry fundamentals and renovations made at nine hotels, and accretive revenues of $6.1 million from the twelve hotels acquired in 2011 and 2012. In addition, the rebranding and upgrades that occurred in 2011 at the hotels involved in the Choice arbitration resulted in improved operating revenues at these hotels in 2012.

Hotel Operating Expenses. Hotel operating expenses increased by $6.1 million from $27.8 million in 2011 to $33.9 million in 2012. The increase is due in part to the $4.1 million of hotel operating expenses at the twelve hotel properties acquired in 2011 and 2012. In addition, the increase in same-store hotel operating expenses is due to $2.0 million of variable costs related to the increase in revenue. Expenses at the same-store hotels declined as a percentage of revenue from 69.4% in the third quarter of 2011 to 66.2% in the third quarter of 2012 due to stability in expenses despite increasing revenues at the hotels.


Depreciation and Amortization. Depreciation and amortization expense increased by $0.4 million, from $8.1 million in 2011 to $8.5 million in 2012, primarily due to the additional depreciation associated with the seven hotels acquired during the first nine months of 2012.

Corporate General and Administrative. Corporate general and administrative expenses increased by $1.1 million from $1.4 million in 2011 to $2.5 million in 2012. The increase in expense was caused by an increase in equity-based compensation, bonus accruals and increases in professional fees and other business services.

Other Income/Expense. The approximately $0.7 million increase in other income (expense) was primarily the result of an increase in interest expense due to debt incurred to finance the acquisition of twelve hotels during 2011 and 2012.

Comparison of the Operating Results of Our Company for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012 to the Combined Operating Results of Our Company and Our Predecessor for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2011

Income from Operations. Income from operations increased by approximately $4.4 million to approximately $11.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 from approximately $7.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. This increase was primarily the result of an increase in same-store revenues due to the improving economy and hotel industry fundamentals and renovations made at nine hotels, and accretive income from operations from the twelve hotels acquired in 2011 and 2012. In addition, the rebranding and upgrades that occurred in 2011 at the hotels involved in the Choice arbitration resulted in improved operating results at these hotels in 2012.

(1) Occupancy rate, or occupancy, represents the weighted-average percentage of available guestrooms that were sold during a specified period of time and is calculated by dividing the number of guestrooms sold by the total number of guestrooms available, expressed as a percentage.
(2) Average daily rate, or ADR, represents the weighted-average rate paid for guestrooms sold, calculated by dividing room revenue (i.e., excluding food and beverage revenues or other hotel operations revenues such as telephone, parking and other guest services) by guestrooms sold.
(3) Revenue per available room, or RevPAR, is the product of ADR and occupancy. RevPAR does not include food and beverage revenues or other hotel operations revenues such as telephone, parking and other guest services.
(4) The information in the tables above for our total portfolio for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 includes revenues from the seven hotels we acquired during the first nine months of 2012 from the date of acquisition of each hotel through September 30, 2012 and operating information (occupancy, ADR and RevPAR) for each of the hotels for the period in which it was owned by us. Accordingly, the information does not reflect a full nine months of operations for each of the hotels acquired in the first nine months of 2012. Furthermore, the tables do not include the operating results in any period of our three hotels located in Twin Falls, Idaho that were sold on May 16, 2012 and the one hotel located in Missoula, Montana that was sold on August 15, 2012.

Total revenue, including room and other hotel operations revenue, increased $28.8 million from $109.7 million in 2011 to $138.4 million in 2012. The increase in revenue is due to an increase in same-store revenues of $11.0 million due to the improving economy and hotel industry fundamentals and renovations made at nine hotels, and accretive revenues of $17.8 million from the twelve hotels acquired in 2011 and 2012. In addition, the rebranding and upgrades that occurred in 2011 at the hotels involved in the Choice arbitration resulted in improved operating revenues at these hotels in 2012.

Hotel Operating Expenses. Hotel operating expenses increased by $16.8 million from $76.4 million in 2011 to $93.2 million in 2012. The increase is primarily due to the $11.7 million of hotel operating expenses at the twelve hotel properties acquired in 2011 and 2012.
