HERSHA HOSPITALITY TRUST AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE THREE AND NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2017 AND 2016 [UNAUDITED]

[IN THOUSANDS, EXCEPT SHARE/UNIT AND PER SHARE AMOUNTS]

 

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION



The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Hersha Hospitality Trust (“we,” “us,” “our” or the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“US GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the general instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by US GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals), considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2017 or any future period.  Accordingly, readers of these consolidated interim financial statements should refer to the Company’s audited financial statements prepared in accordance with US GAAP, and the related notes thereto, for the year ended December 31, 2016, which are included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, as certain footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with US GAAP have been condensed or omitted from this report pursuant to the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission.



We are a self-administered Maryland real estate investment trust that was organized in May 1998 and completed our initial public offering in January 1999. Our common shares are traded on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) under the symbol “HT.” We own our hotels and our investments in joint ventures through our operating partnership, Hersha Hospitality Limited Partnership (“HHLP” or “the Partnership”), for which we serve as the sole general partner.  As of September 30, 2017, we owned an approximate 92.8%  partnership interest in HHLP, including a 1.0% general partnership interest.



Principles of Consolidation and Presentation



The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles and include all of our accounts as well as accounts of the Partnership, subsidiary partnerships and our wholly owned Taxable REIT Subsidiary Lessee (“TRS Lessee”). All significant inter-company amounts have been eliminated.



Consolidated properties are either wholly owned or owned less than 100% by the Partnership and are controlled by the Company as general partner of the Partnership. Properties owned in joint ventures are also consolidated if the determination is made that we are the primary beneficiary in a variable interest entity (“VIE”) or we maintain control of the asset through our voting interest in the entity. Control can be demonstrated when the general partner has the power to impact the economic performance of the partnership, which includes the ability of the general partner to manage day-to-day operations, refinance debt and sell the assets of the partnerships without the consent of the limited partners and the inability of the limited partners to replace the general partner. Control can be demonstrated by the limited partners if the limited partners have the right to dissolve or liquidate the partnership or otherwise remove the general partner without cause or have rights to participate in the significant decisions made in the ordinary course of the partnership’s business.

 

Variable Interest Entities



We evaluate each of our investments and contractual relationships to determine whether they meet the guidelines for consolidation. Entities are consolidated if the determination is made that we are the primary beneficiary in a VIE or we maintain control of the asset through our voting interest or other rights in the operation of the entity. To determine if we are the primary beneficiary of a VIE, we evaluate whether we have a controlling financial interest in that VIE. An enterprise is deemed to have a controlling financial interest if it has i) the power to direct the activities of a variable interest entity that most significantly impact the entity’s economic performance, and ii) the obligation to absorb losses of the VIE that could be significant to the VIE or the rights to receive benefits from the VIE that could be significant to the VIE. Control can also be demonstrated by the ability of a member to manage day-to-day operations, refinance debt and sell the assets of the partnerships without the consent of the other member and the inability of the members to replace the managing member. Based on our examination, the following entities were determined to be VIEs: HHLP, Cindat Hersha Owner JV, LLC; Cindat Hersha Lessee JV, LLC; South Bay Boston, LLC; Hersha Statutory Trust I; and Hersha Statutory Trust II. As noted, HHLP meets the criteria as a VIE.  The Company’s most significant asset is its investment in HHLP, and consequently, substantially all of the Company’s assets and liabilities represent those assets and liabilities of HHLP.    Cindat Hersha Owner JV, LLC and Cindat Hersha Lessee JV, LLC are both VIE entities, however because we are not the primary beneficiary in either entity, they are not consolidated by the Company. Our maximum exposure to losses from our investment in Cindat Hersha Owner JV, LLC is limited to our basis in the joint venture which is $0 as of September 30, 2017. Also, South Bay Boston, LLC leases hotel property and is a VIE. This entity is consolidated by the lessor, the primary beneficiary of the entity. Hersha Statutory Trust I and Hersha Statutory Trust II (collectively “Hersha Statutory

Trusts”) are VIEs but the Company is not the primary beneficiary in these entities.  Accordingly, the accounts of Hersha Statutory Trust I and Hersha Statutory Trust II are not consolidated. 



Noncontrolling Interest



We classify the noncontrolling interests of our consolidated variable interest entity, common units of limited partnership interest in HHLP (“Common Units”), and Long Term Incentive Plan Units (“LTIP Units”) as equity. LTIP Units are a separate class of limited partnership interest in the Operating Partnership that are convertible into Common Units under certain circumstances.  The noncontrolling interest of Common Units and LTIP Units totaled $55,269 as of September 30, 2017 and $44,321 as of December 31, 2016.  As of September 30, 2017, there were 3,223,366 Common Units outstanding with a fair market value of $60,180, based on the price per share of our common shares on the NYSE on such date. In accordance with the partnership agreement of HHLP, holders of these Common Units may redeem them for cash unless we, in our sole and absolute discretion, elect to issue common shares on a one-for-one basis in lieu of paying cash.

 

Net income or loss attributed to Common Units and LTIP Units is included in net income or loss but excluded from net income or loss applicable to common shareholders in the consolidated statements of operations.

In October 2016, our Board of Trustees authorized a new share repurchase program for up to $100,000 of common shares which commenced upon the completion of the existing repurchase program. The new repurchase program will expire on December 31, 2017, unless extended by our Board of Trustees.



On April 26, 2017, we entered into Equity Distribution Agreements with four investment banks whereby we agreed to sell up to 8,000,000 Class A common shares, up to 1,000,000 Series D Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares, and up to 1,000,000 Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares from time to time in an “at the market” offering.  In conjunction with this transaction, the Company increased the number of authorized Class A common shares from 90,000,000 to 104,000,000.

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION (CONTINUED)



New Accounting Pronouncements



In August 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities.  The update will make more financial and nonfinancial hedging strategies eligible for hedge accounting, changes how companies assess hedge effectiveness, and amends the presentation and disclosure requirements for hedging transactions.  The provisions of the update will be effective for the Company starting January 1, 2019 with the early adoption available as early as the quarter ended September 30, 2017.  Based on the type of derivative instruments within the Company’s portfolio, we do not anticipate this update to have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures, however, we are currently assessing the ultimate impact of this update.



In February 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-05, Other Income – Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets (Subtopic 610-20).  The update defines the term “in substance nonfinancial asset” as it is presented in Subtopic 610-20 as a “financial asset promised to a counterparty in a contract if substantially all of the fair value of the assets that are promised to the counterparty in the contract is concentrated in nonfinancial assets.” As it relates to the Company, real estate, such as land and building, would be considered an example of a nonfinancial asset.  Additionally, the update provides guidance over partial sale transactions, particularly, when an entity should derecognize a distinct nonfinancial asset or in substance nonfinancial asset in a partial sale transaction, and the extent of gain that should be recognized as a result of the partial sale transaction.  This standard is effective in conjunction with ASU No. 2014-09 (presented below), which is effective for periods beginning after December 15, 2017, however early adoption is permitted.  The provisions of this update must be applied at the same time as the adoption of ASU No. 2014-09.  The Company is currently evaluating how the provisions of this update affect our adoption of ASU No. 2014-09.  See below for our discussion of ASU No. 2014-09 and the effect it will have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.  



In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-01, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Clarifying the Definition of a Business, which clarifies the definition of a business as it relates to acquisitions and business combinations. The update adds further guidance that assists preparers in evaluating whether a transaction will be accounted for as an acquisition of an asset or a business.  We expect most of our hotel property acquisitions to qualify as asset acquisitions under the standard which permits the capitalization of acquisition costs to the underlying assets.  The Company expects the standard to have an impact on our financial statements in periods during which we complete significant hotel acquisitions.  For instance, during the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the Company incurred $2,121 in expenses related to acquisition costs that would have been subject to capitalization under this ASU.  This standard is effective for periods beginning after December 31, 2017, however early adoption is permitted.  



Effective January 1, 2017, we adopted ASU No. 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Award Payment Accounting, which simplifies various aspects of how share-based payments are accounted for and presented in the financial statements. This standard requires companies to record all of the tax effects related to share-based payments through the income statement, allows companies to elect an accounting policy to either estimate the share based award forfeitures (and expense) or account for forfeitures (and expense) as they occur, and allows companies to withhold a percentage of the shares issuable upon settlement of an award up to the maximum individual statutory tax rate without causing the award to be classified as a liability. The Company has elected to expense forfeitures of share-based award as they occur as our accounting policy.  The adoption of ASU No. 2016-09 had no material impact on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.



In November 2016 the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230), which provides guidance on the presentation of restricted cash or restricted cash equivalents within the statement of cash flows.  Accordingly, amounts generally described as restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents should be included with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the beginning-of-period and end-of-period total amounts shown on the statement of cash flows.  This standard is effective for the Company for periods beginning after December 15, 2017.  The adoption of ASU No. 2016-18 will change the presentation of the statement of cash flows for the Company and we will utilize a retrospective transition method for each period presented within financial statements for periods subsequent to the date of adoption.

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION (CONTINUED)



In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which provides the principles for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of leases.  The accounting for lessors will remain largely unchanged from current GAAP; however, the standard requires that certain initial direct costs be expensed rather than capitalized.  Under the standard, lessees apply a dual approach, classifying leases as either finance or operating leases. A lessee is required to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term of greater than 12 months, regardless of their lease classification. Based on the review of our leases, we are a lessee on ground leases in certain markets, hotel equipment leases, and office space leases.  We are also a lessor in certain office space and retail lease agreements related to our hotels.  While we do not anticipate any material change to the accounting for leases under which we are a lessor, we are still evaluating the impact this ASU will have on the accounting for our leasing arrangements as well as our disclosures within the notes to our financial statements. This standard will be effective for the first annual reporting period beginning after December 15, 2018.



On May 28, 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers.  The ASU will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. GAAP when it becomes effective.  We are evaluating each of our revenue streams and related accounting policy under the standard.  The new standard is effective for the Company on January 1, 2018.  Early adoption is permitted, but not prior to the original effective date of January 1, 2017.  The standard permits the use of either the retrospective or modified retrospective transition method.  The modified retrospective method allows for, among other things, a cumulative adjustment to opening equity upon adoption of the standard.  The Company continues to evaluate the ultimate effect that ASU No. 2014-09 will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.  Based on our analysis to date, we do not expect the new revenue recognition model to have a material impact on our hotel operating revenue, including room revenue, food and beverage, and other revenue, however, our final evaluation has not been concluded.  Our evaluation under the standard also includes sales to third parties, primarily a result of dispositions of real estate.  Our evaluation over sales of real estate is continuing and will be impacted by the FASB definition of a business and in substance nonfinancial assets, which have recently been addressed through the issuance of ASU No. 2017-01 and ASU No. 2017-05, respectively.  Based on the provisions of ASU No. 2017-01 and ASU No. 2017-05, the Company would expect any future sales of interests in hotel properties to likely meet the criteria for full gain on sale recognition.  This treatment is not different from our historical position when selling our entire interest in hotel properties, however, this is different than the historical treatment in certain instances where the Company sold partial interests in hotel properties.  In particular, during 2016 the Company sold partial interests in seven hotel properties to a third party (“Cindat Sale”) resulting in an approximate $81 million deferred gain based on prevailing GAAP at the time of the transaction.  The Company anticipates utilizing the modified retrospective transition method with available practical expedients upon adopting ASU No. 2014-09.  As such, the Company is analyzing the Cindat Sale to assess whether it is defined to be a closed contract under the guidance of ASU No. 2014-09 which may result in no change to the deferred gain amount recorded in conjunction with the Cindat Sale.
