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.

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.
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.

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
