Asset and Revenue Growth

Incremental revenue from new hotel acquisitions and increasing revenues from the Fort McMurray hotel portfolio, due to expanded production in the oilsands industry, were the main factors driving revenue growth in Q3-2013. During Q3-2013, total revenue increased by $16.8 million or 66% compared to Q3-2012, comprised of a $14.4 million increase in revenue from "newly acquired properties" and a $2.4 million increase from the "same property" portfolio. In Q3-2013, the Fort McMurray hotel portfolio achieved near record high average occupancy levels of 83% and a continued increase in average daily room rate to $189.21.

For the nine month period ended September 30, 2013, the total revenue increased by $44.2 million or 63%, compared to the same period in 2012, notwithstanding that several of the newly acquired properties do not reflect stabilized earnings levels due to the timing of the acquisitions and/or the impact of 2013 hotel renovations.

During Q3-2013, financing activities resulted in a net cash outflow of $15.4 million, consisting primarily of debt repayments in the net amount of $11.3 million, dividend payments of $3.4 million and a cash outflow of $0.7 million in regard to the repurchase of convertible debentures pursuant to normal course issuer bids. The debt repayments included a $4 million lump-sum principal payment and the prepayment of the convertible mortgage loan debt of $4.5 million.

Investing Activities

During Q3-2013, investing activities resulted in a net cash inflow of $2.2 million, consisting primarily of $3.8 million from the sale of marketable securities offset by approximately $1.2 million in regard to capital expenditures. Temple completed Q3-2013 with an unrestricted cash balance of $29.5 million and working capital of $40.6 million.

Recent and Upcoming Hotel Acquisitions

Subsequent to September 30, 2013, Temple completed the acquisition of two hotels.

Effective October 1, 2013, Temple acquired the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Ottawa West - Nepean.  The six-story hotel opened in 2010 and is comprised of 115 guestrooms, including 58 suites.  The $19.5 million purchase price was financed by a first mortgage loan in the amount of $14.5 million and the balance in cash.

On November 1, 2013, Temple completed the acquisition of the Acclaim Hotel Calgary Airport North. The four-storey hotel opened in 2009 and consists of 225 guestrooms, including 102 guestrooms which were completed under a hotel expansion project in August 2013. The $42 million purchase price was financed by a first mortgage loan in the amount of $27.3 million and the balance in cash. A portion of the cash component ($2.8 million) was previously funded by a cash advance secured by a 12% second mortgage loan.

On October 28, 2013, Temple announced that it had entered into an agreement to acquire the 106 suite Nova Court extended-stay project in Yellowknife, NWT for $21.68 million. The acquisition is expected to close by December 31, 2013.

The recent hotel acquisitions in Ottawa, Calgary and Yellowknife continue to enhance the geographic diversification of the overall hotel portfolio.

Outlook

Temple's hotels in Edmonton and Fort McMurray continue to experience record rates of occupancy due to the expanding level of activity in the energy industry. After considering the two hotels which were acquired by Temple subsequent to September 30, 2013, the commitment to acquire the Nova Court Hotel and additional targeted acquisitions, management expects continued operating income growth in Q4 and 2014.

Total operating income increased by $5.77 million or 58% during Q3-2013, compared to Q3-2012, comprised of an increase of $1.30 million or 17% for the "same property" portfolio and $4.47 million which is attributable to new hotel acquisitions.  The increase in "same property" operating income mainly reflects a $1.11 or 24% increase in operating income for the Fort McMurray "same property" portfolio.

For the first nine months of 2013, operating income increased by $14.44 million or 54%, compared to the first nine months of 2012, comprised of an increase of $2.38 million or 10% for the "same property" portfolio and $12.06 million which is attributable to new hotel acquisitions.

As disclosed in the preceding chart, the overall profit margin of the entire hotel portfolio decreased from 40% during Q3-2012, to 38% during Q3-2013.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the overall profit margin was 36%, compared to 38% for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The decline in overall profit margin is mainly attributable to a decrease in the proportionate contribution from hotels in Fort McMurray as the hotels in Fort McMurray have a substantially higher profit margin.  As disclosed in the above chart, the Fort McMurray profit margin increased from 58% in Q3-2012 to 61% in Q3-2013 and from 56% for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 to 59% for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Income, before equity income, change in fair value of financial instruments and income taxes, increased by $2.19 million during Q3- 2013, compared to Q2-2013.  The increase in income mainly reflects an increase in operating income, a decrease in interest expense (net) and a decrease in general and administrative expenses, partially offset by an increase in depreciation and amortization.

Operating income increased by $1.58 million or 11% in Q3-2013, comprised of an increase of $0.54 million in "same property" operating income and $1.04 million of operating income which is attributable to new hotels.  The increase in "same property" operating income reflects quarterly variations in operating income throughout the same property hotel portfolio

Interest expense (net) decreased by $0.40 in Q3-2013 compared to Q2-2013. The decrease in interest expense mainly reflects the repayment of the convertible mortgage loan debt on July 9, 2013 as well as a $4.0 million lump sum principal paydown in regard to Clearwater Timberlea, partially offset by an entire quarter of interest charges following the acquisition of the Holiday Inn Express, Sherwood Park and the upward refinancing of mortgage loan debt during Q2-2013.

Including equity income; the loss associated with the change in fair value of financial instruments and income taxes, total net income increased by $2.62 million during Q3-2013 compared to Q2-2013.
