SHANGHAI, May 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Home Inns & Hotels Management Inc. (NASDAQ: HMIN), a leading economy hotel chain in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

First Quarter of 2012 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenues increased 66.0% year over year to RMB 1,255.7 million (US$199.4 million). Excluding Motel 168 (acquired and fully consolidated starting October 1, 2011) total revenue increased 22.7% year over year to RMB 928.4 million.
  • Loss from operations was RMB 36.9 million (US$5.9 million). Adjusted income from operations was RMB 9.7 million (US$1.5 million), compared to RMB 60.0 million in the same period of 2011.
  • Net loss attributable to Home Inns' shareholders was RMB 103.2 million (US$16.4 million) which includes a net loss of RMB 53.2 million (US$8.4 million) from Motel 168, compared to a net income of RMB 32.5 million in the first quarter of 2011.
  • EBITDA (non-GAAP) was RMB 93.1 million (US$14.8 million), compared to RMB 137.5 million in the same period of 2011. Excluding non-operating items and one-time charges, adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) increased to RMB 165.9 million (US$26.3 million) from RMB 152.5 million in the first quarter of 2011.
  • Diluted losses per ADS for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 2.28 (US$0.36); adjusted diluted losses per ADS (non-GAAP) for the first quarter were RMB 0.54 (US$0.09).

"Despite seasonality and relatively lethargic market environment, our core mature hotels maintained stable performance during the past quarter," said Mr. David Sun, Home Inns' Chief Executive Officer. "Due to margin impact by new hotels opened in the late fourth quarter of 2011, higher pre-opening costs, near-term profitability dilution by Motel 168 and non-recurring acquisition-related charges, we experienced an overall net loss in the first quarter. This was, however, within our expectations and there were no surprises."

"Based on what we are experiencing in current operations and the integration results we achieved so far, we remain optimistic about the full year's outlook. As new hotels ramp up, Motel 168 further improves its operations and our control mechanisms continue to address rising costs, we are confident of the Company's ability to generate profitable growth and sustained return for our shareholders."

Home Inns completed its acquisition of 100% equity interest in Motel 168, and took control of Motel 168 effective on October 1, 2011. The Company has consolidated Motel 168's operating and financial results since October 1, 2011. Home Inns presents certain separated financial data of Motel 168 in this earning release, for the purpose of providing more information to investors, and will continue to provide separated financial data of Motel 168 through the 2012 fiscal year.


Operational Highlights

  • During the first quarter of 2012, Home Inns opened 59 new hotels, including five new leased-and-operated hotels and 54 new franchised-and-managed hotels (including six Motel 168 hotels). Meanwhile Home Inns closed six hotels including one leased-and-operated hotel and five franchised-and-managed hotels (including two Motel 168 hotels), mainly due to city rezoning, expiration and termination of franchise agreements.
  • As of March 31, 2012, Home Inns operated across 219 cities in China with a total of 1,479 hotels, of which 702 were leased-and-operated hotels (including three Yitel Hotels and 144 Motel 168 hotels) and 777 were franchised-and-managed hotels (including one Yitel hotel and 167 Motel 168 hotels). The average number of guest rooms per hotel was 123.
  • In addition, Home Inns had another 218 hotels contracted or under construction as of March 31, 2012, of which, 72 were leased-and-operated hotels (including five hotels under Motel 168 brand) and 146 were franchised-and-managed hotels (including 21 hotels under Motel 168 brand).
  • As of March 31, 2012, combining 2.7 million active non-corporate members from Motel 168 brand, Home Inns had total of 7.9 million unique active non-corporate members.
  • The occupancy rate for all hotels in operation was 80.7% in the first quarter of 2012. Excluding Motel 168, the occupancy rate was 84.4%, compared with 85.1% in the same period in 2011 and 88.4% in the fourth quarter of 2011. The decrease in occupancy rate both year over year and sequentially was mainly due to relatively soft market conditions and, to a lesser extent, seasonality. The occupancy rate for Motel 168 in the first quarter of 2012 was 70.4%, decreased from 73.5% in the fourth quarter of 2011 mainly due to seasonality.
  • RevPAR, defined as revenue per available room, was RMB 132 in the first quarter of 2012. Excluding Motel 168, RevPAR was RMB 139, compared with RMB 140 in the same period of 2011 and RMB 141 in the fourth quarter of 2011. The slight year-over-year RevPAR decrease was attributed to a lower occupancy rate described above while average daily rate were flat year over year. The sequential decrease in RevPAR was primarily due to seasonality. RevPAR for Motel 168 was RMB 111, decreased from RMB 113 in the fourth quarter of 2011 mainly driven by increased averaged daily rate from RMB 154 to RMB 158 yet offset by decrease in occupancy rate described above.
  • Excluding Motel 168, RevPAR for Home Inns' mature hotels that had been in operation for at least 18 months was RMB 151 for the first quarter of 2012, increased slightly from RMB 149 for the same group of hotels in the first quarter of 2011. The RevPAR growth at mature hotels was attributed to a higher average daily rate.

First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Home Inns' total revenues for the first quarter of 2012 increased 66.0% year over year to RMB 1.26 billion (US$199.4 million), including revenues from Motel 168 of RMB 327.3 million (US$52.0 million). Excluding Motel 168, total revenues for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 928.4 million (US$147.4 million), representing an increase of 22.7% year over year.

  • Total revenues from leased-and-operated hotels for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 1.13 billion (US$179.1 million), representing a 64.1% increase year over year and a 4.5% decrease sequentially. Excluding Motel 168, total revenues from leased-and-operated hotels for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 816.1 million (US$129.6 million), an increase of 18.7% year over year and a decrease of 1.7% sequentially. Excluding Motel 168, the year-over-year increases were mainly driven by a greater number of hotels in operation and better RevPAR at mature hotels even with a number of new hotels not yet making full revenue contribution. The sequential decrease was mainly due to seasonality.
  • Total revenues from franchised-and-managed hotels for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 127.9 million (US$20.3 million), representing an 84.6% increase year over year and a 0.7% decrease sequentially. Excluding Motel 168, total revenues from franchised-and-managed hotels for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 112.3 million (US$17.8 million), an increase of 62.2% year over year and a decrease of 0.1% sequentially. Excluding Motel 168, the year-over-year increases in revenues from franchised-and-managed hotels for the current quarter were mainly driven by a larger number of such hotels in operation, while the sequential decrease was mainly due to seasonality.

Total operating costs and expenses for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 1.22 billion (US$193.3 million). Excluding Motel 168, total operating costs and expenses for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 850.8 million (US$135.1 million). Excluding Motel 168, operating costs and expenses excluding any share-based compensation expenses and acquisition expenses (non-GAAP) for the current quarter was RMB 828.7 million (US$131.6 million), representing 89.3% of total revenues, compared with 85.7% for the same quarter a year ago and 84.2% for the fourth quarter of 2011.

  • Total leased-and-operated hotel costs for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 1.10 billion (US$174.2 million), including share-based compensation expenses of RMB 2.0 million (US$0.3 million) and integration costs of RMB 14.5 million (US$2.3 million), representing 97.3% of the leased-and-operated hotel revenues. Excluding Motel 168, total leased-and-operated hotel costs excluding any share-based compensation expenses and acquisition expenses for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 755.6 million (US$120.0 million), representing 92.6% of the leased-and-operated hotel revenues compared to 86.2% for the same quarter in 2011 and 85.3% for the fourth quarter of 2011. This year-over-year increase was mainly driven by higher dilutive impact by hotels in their ramp-up stage incurring full operating costs without generating full revenue, increase in personnel costs and higher pre-opening costs of RMB 19.5 million (US$3.1 million) this quarter than RMB 14.3 million in the first quarter of 2011. The sequential increase was mainly driven by seasonality.

  • Personnel costs of franchised-and-managed hotels for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 22.6 million (US$3.6 million), including share-based compensation expenses of RMB 2.2 million (US$0.3 million), representing 17.7% of franchised-and-managed hotel revenues. This compared to 14.8% for the same quarter in 2011 and 15.6% for the fourth quarter of 2011. Excluding Motel 168, personnel costs of franchised-and-managed hotels excluding share-based compensation expenses for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 16.8 million (US$2.7 million), representing 14.9% of franchised-and-managed hotel revenues compared to that of 14.8% for the first quarter of 2011.
  • Sales and marketing expenses for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 18.2 million (US$2.9 million), including share-based compensation expenses of RMB 0.4 million (US$0.1 million), representing 1.4% of total revenues, compared to RMB 10.0 million or 1.3% of total revenues in the same period of 2011. Excluding Motel 168, sales and marketing expenses excluding shared-based compensation expenses for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 14.5 million (US$2.3 million), representing 1.6% of total revenues. This year-over-year increase in sales and marketing expenses resulted from higher spending on marketing programs.

  • General and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 80.0 million (US$12.7 million), including share-based compensation expenses of RMB 17.6 million (US$2.8 million) and integration costs of RMB 10.1 million (US$1.6 million). General and administrative expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses and integration cost (non-GAAP) were RMB 52.3 million (US$8.3 million), or 4.2% of the total revenues, compared with 4.7% of the total revenues in the same period of 2011 and 4.7% in the fourth quarter of 2011. Excluding Motel 168, general and administrative expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses for the quarter were RMB 41.9 million (US$6.7 million), or 4.5% of total revenues compared to 4.7% same period a year ago and 5.6% in the previous quarter. The Company continues to benefit from economies of scale.

The above resulted in a loss from operations for the first quarter of 2012 of RMB 36.9 million (US$5.9 million). Income from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses and integration cost (non-GAAP) for the first quarter of 2012 was RMB 9.7 million (US$1.5 million), or 0.8% of total revenues. Excluding Motel 168, income from operations for the first quarter of 2012 was RMB 21.1 million (US$3.4 million). Excluding Motel 168, income from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses (non-GAAP) for the first quarter of 2012 was RMB 43.2 million (US$6.9 million), or 4.7% of total revenues, compared to RMB 60.0 million or 7.9% of total revenues in the same period of 2011 and RMB 89.3 million or 9.5% of total revenues in the fourth quarter of 2011. The year-over-year decrease in income from operations was caused by market conditions not suitable for selling price increase which would offset cost inflations. It was also driven by less revenue contribution by hotels in ramp-up stage yet incurring full costs, and a higher level of pre-opening expenses. The sequential decrease in income from operations was mainly due to seasonality.

EBITDA (non-GAAP) for the first quarter of 2012 was RMB 93.1 million (US$14.8 million). Excluding any share-based compensation expenses, foreign exchange gain, loss from fair value change of convertible notes, integration cost and non-operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was RMB 165.9 million (US$26.3 million), or 13.2% of total revenues. Integration costs refer to costs incurred by Motel 168 during its integration into the Company's business. Excluding Motel 168, EBITDA (non-GAAP) for the first quarter of 2012 was RMB 105.7 million (US$16.8 million). Excluding Motel 168, adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) excluding any share-based compensation expenses, foreign exchange gain, loss from fair value change of convertible notes and non-operating expenses, was RMB 153.4 million (US$24.4 million), or 16.5% of total revenues, compared to RMB 152.5 million or 20.2% of total revenue in the same period in 2011.

Net loss attributable to Home Inns' shareholders for the first quarter of 2012 was RMB 103.2 million (US$16.4 million). Adjusted net loss attributable to Home Inns' shareholders (non-GAAP), which excludes any share-based compensation expenses, foreign exchange gain, loss from fair value change of convertible notes, integration cost, non-operating expenses and upfront fee amortization of term loan, was RMB 24.6 million (US$3.9 million) for the first quarter of 2012. Excluding Motel 168, net loss attributable to Home Inns' shareholders for the first quarter of 2012 was RMB 50.0 million (US$7.9 million). Excluding Motel 168, adjusted net income attributable to Home Inns' shareholders (non-GAAP) excluding any share-based compensation expenses, foreign exchange gain, loss from fair value change of convertible notes, non-operating expenses and amortization of upfront fee incurred for the term loan borrowing, was RMB 3.6 million (US$0.6 million), compared to that of RMB 47.5 million from the same period in 2011 and RMB 35.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.

The following data refers to the first quarter of 2012. Basic and diluted losses per share were both RMB 1.14 (US$0.18). Basic and diluted losses per ADS were both RMB 2.28 (US$0.36). Excluding any share-based compensation expenses, foreign exchange gain, loss from fair value change of convertible notes, integration cost, non-operating expenses and amortization of upfront fee of the term loan borrowing, adjusted basic and diluted losses per share (non-GAAP) were both RMB 0.27 (US$0.04). Adjusted basic and diluted losses per ADS (non-GAAP) were both RMB 0.54 (US$0.09). Outstanding convertible bonds issued in 2007, outstanding convertible notes issued in 2010 and stock options were excluded in the computation of diluted earnings per share due to their anti-dilutive effect for the first quarter of 2012..

Net operating cash flow for the first quarter of 2012 was RMB 30.8 million (US$4.9 million), compared to RMB 55.4 million from the first quarter of 2011. Capitalized expenditures for the first quarter of 2012 were RMB 170.3 million (US$27.0 million), while related cash paid for capital expenditures during the quarter was RMB 299.8 million (US$47.6 million).

As of March 31, 2012, Home Inns had cash and cash equivalents of RMB 1.51 billion (US$240.3 million). The outstanding balance of its convertible bonds (issued in 2007) was RMB 113.2 million (US$18.0 million) including principal and accrued interest. Outstanding balance of long-term financial liability (measured at fair value) arose from the convertible notes issued in December 2010 was RMB 1.01 billion (US$159.8 million). The balance of US Dollar-denominated 4-year term loan facility was RMB 1.51 billion (US$239.9 million).

This announcement contains translations of certain RMB amounts into U.S. dollars at specified rates solely for the convenience of the reader.

Because of the lack of dilutive impact on net loss, basic and diluted losses per ADS are the same. Adjusted basic and diluted losses per ADS (non-GAAP) exclude foreign exchange gain, share-based compensation expenses, integration cost, loss from change in fair value of convertible notes, non-operating expenses and amortization of upfront fee of the term loan borrowing.

Safe Harbor

This announcement contains forward-looking statements. These statements are made under the "safe harbor" provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as "will," "expects," "anticipates," "future," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates" and similar statements. Any statements in this press release that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements that involve factors, risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Such factors and risks include our anticipated growth strategies; our future results of operations and financial condition; the economic conditions of China; the regulatory environment in China; our ability to attract customers and leverage our brand; trends and competition in the lodging industry; the expected growth of the lodging market in China; our expected successful consolidation and integration of Motel 168 with our existing operations; and other factors and risks detailed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This press release also contains statements or projections that are based upon information available to the public, as well as other information from sources which management believes to be reliable, but it is not guaranteed by us to be accurate, nor do we purport it to be complete.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Home Inns' unaudited consolidated financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, Home Inns uses the following non-GAAP measures: total operating costs and expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, acquisition and integration costs, general and administrative expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, acquisition and integration costs, income from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses, acquisition and integration costs, adjusted net income attributable to shareholders excluding foreign exchange gain or loss, share-based compensation expenses, gain on buy-back of convertible bonds, issuance costs for convertible notes, gain or loss from fair value change of convertible notes, acquisition and integration costs, withholding tax for profit distribution of previous periods, non-operating expenses and upfront fee amortization of term loan, adjusted basic and diluted earnings per ADS and per share excluding foreign exchange gain or loss, share-based compensation expenses, gain on buy-back of convertible bonds, issuance costs for convertible notes, gain or loss from fair value change of convertible notes, acquisition and integration cost, withholding tax for profit distribution of previous periods, non-operating expenses and upfront fee amortization of term loan, and adjusted EBITDA excluding foreign exchange gain or loss, share-based compensation expenses, gain on buy-back of convertible bonds, issuance costs for convertible notes, gain or loss from fair value change of convertible notes, acquisition and integration costs, non-operating expenses and upfront fee amortization of term loan. Any financial data referring to "Excluding Motel 168" are also non-GAAP financial measures. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of GAAP and non-GAAP results" set forth at the end of this press release.

Home Inns believes that in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance, and both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. Management believes that EBITDA, defined as earnings before interest, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, is a useful financial metric to assess Home Inns' operating and financial performance before the impact of investing and financing transactions and income taxes. In addition, management believes that EBITDA is widely used by other companies in the lodging industry and may be used as an analysis tool by both management and investors to measure and compare Home Inns' operational and financial performance with industry peers.

One of the limitations of using non-GAAP income from operations, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income attributable to shareholders is that they do not include all items that impact Home Inns' net income (loss) for the period. These non-GAAP measures exclude share-based compensation expenses, foreign exchange gain or loss and gain or loss from fair value change of convertible notes, which have been and will continue to be a significant recurring expense in Home Inns' business. In addition, Home Inns' EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to EBITDA or similarly titled measures utilized by other companies since such other companies may not calculate EBITDA in the same manner as Home Inns does. Management compensates for this and other limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. Home Inns computes the non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter. Reconciliations of GAAP and non-GAAP results are included at the end of this press release. The non-GAAP adjustment items do not include the tax impact, which is inconsequential.

The presentation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that Home Inns' future results will be unaffected by other charges and gains Home Inns considers to be outside the ordinary course of its business.

Home Inns completed its acquisition of 100% equity interest in Motel 168, and took control of Motel 168 effective on October 1, 2011. Home Inns consolidated Motel 168's operating and financial results since October 1, 2011. Home Inns presented certain separated financial data of Motel 168 in this earning release, for the purpose of providing more information to investors. Home Inns will provide separated financial data of Motel 168 through the 2012 fiscal year.
