CAREY WATERMARK INVESTORS INCORPORATED
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

Note 1. Business

Organization

Carey Watermark Investors Incorporated, or CWI, is, together with its consolidated subsidiaries, a publicly-owned, non-listed real estate investment trust, or REIT, that invests in, and through our advisor, manages and seeks to enhance the value of, interests in lodging and lodging-related properties primarily in the United States. We conduct substantially all of our investment activities and own all of our assets through CWI OP, LP, or the Operating Partnership. We are a general partner and a limited partner of, and own a 99.985% capital interest in, the Operating Partnership. Carey Watermark Holdings, LLC, or Carey Watermark Holdings, which is owned indirectly by both W. P. Carey Inc., or WPC, and Watermark Capital Partners, LLC, or Watermark Capital Partners, holds a special general partner interest in the Operating Partnership.

We are managed by Carey Lodging Advisors, LLC, or our Advisor, an indirect subsidiary of WPC. Our Advisor manages our overall portfolio, including providing oversight and strategic guidance to the independent hotel operators that manage our hotels. CWA, LLC, a subsidiary of Watermark Capital Partners, or the Subadvisor, provides services to our Advisor primarily relating to acquiring, managing, financing and disposing of our hotels and overseeing the independent operators that manage the day-to-day operations of our hotels. In addition, the Subadvisor provides us with the services of Mr. Michael G. Medzigian, our Chief Executive Officer, subject to the approval of our independent directors.

We held ownership interests in 32 hotels at March 31, 2017. See Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in Item 2 — Portfolio Overview for a complete listing of the hotels that we consolidate, or our Consolidated Hotels, and the hotels that we record as equity investments, or our Unconsolidated Hotels, at March 31, 2017.

Public Offerings

We raised $575.8 million through our initial public offering, which ran from September 15, 2010 through September 15, 2013, and $577.4 million through our follow-on offering, which ran from December 20, 2013 through December 31, 2014. In addition, from inception through March 31, 2017, $136.0 million of distributions were reinvested in our common stock as a result of our distribution reinvestment plan, or DRIP. We have fully invested the proceeds from both our initial public offering and follow-on offering.

Note 2. Basis of Presentation

Basis of Presentation

Our interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and, therefore, do not necessarily include all information and footnotes necessary for a fair statement of our consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP.

In the opinion of management, the unaudited financial information for the interim periods presented in this Report reflects all normal and recurring adjustments necessary for a fair statement of financial position, results of operations and cash flows. Our interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes for the year ended December 31, 2016, which are included in our 2016 Annual Report, as certain disclosures that would substantially duplicate those contained in the audited consolidated financial statements have not been included in this Report. Operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of operating results for an entire year.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts and the disclosure of contingent amounts in our consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates.



CWI 3/31/2017 10-Q 7



Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

Basis of Consolidation

Our consolidated financial statements reflect all of our accounts, including those of our controlled subsidiaries. The portions of equity in consolidated subsidiaries that are not attributable, directly or indirectly, to us are presented as noncontrolling interests. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

When we obtain an economic interest in an entity, we evaluate the entity to determine if it should be deemed a variable interest entity, or VIE, and, if so, whether we are the primary beneficiary and are therefore required to consolidate the entity. We apply accounting guidance for consolidation of VIEs to certain entities in which the equity investors do not have the characteristics of a controlling financial interest or do not have sufficient equity at risk for the entity to finance its activities without additional subordinated financial support from other parties. Certain decision-making rights within a loan or joint-venture agreement can cause us to consider an entity a VIE. Limited partnerships and other similar entities which operate as a partnership will be considered a VIE unless the limited partners hold substantive kick-out rights or participation rights. Significant judgment is required to determine whether a VIE should be consolidated. We review the contractual arrangements provided for in the partnership agreement or other related contracts to determine whether the entity is considered a VIE, and to establish whether we have any variable interests in the VIE. We then compare our variable interests, if any, to those of the other variable interest holders to determine which party is the primary beneficiary of the VIE based on whether the entity (i) has the power to direct the activities that most significantly impact the economic performance of the VIE and (ii) has the obligation to absorb losses or the right to receive benefits of the VIE that could potentially be significant to the VIE. The liabilities of these VIEs are non-recourse to us and can only be satisfied from each VIE’s respective assets.

At both March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, we considered five entities to be VIEs, four of which we consolidated as we are considered the primary beneficiary.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board, or FASB, issued Accounting Standards Update, or ASU, 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). ASU 2014-09 supersedes or replaces nearly all GAAP revenue recognition guidance. The new guidance establishes a new control-based revenue recognition model that changes the basis for deciding when revenue is recognized over time or at a point in time and expands the disclosures about revenue. The new guidance also applies to sales of real estate and the new principles-based approach is largely based on the transfer of control of the real estate to the buyer. The guidance is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and the interim periods within those annual periods. Early adoption is permitted for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. We expect to adopt this new standard on January 1, 2018 using the modified retrospective transition method. Based on our assessment, the adoption of this standard will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). ASU 2016-02 outlines a new model for accounting by lessees, whereby their rights and obligations under substantially all leases, existing and new, would be capitalized and recorded on the balance sheet. For lessors, however, the accounting remains largely unchanged from the current model, with the distinction between operating and financing leases retained, but updated to align with certain changes to the lessee model and the new revenue recognition standard. Additionally, the new standard requires extensive quantitative and qualitative disclosures. ASU 2016-02 is effective for U.S. GAAP public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years; for all other entities, the final lease standard will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Early application will be permitted for all entities. The new standard must be adopted using a modified retrospective transition of the new guidance and provides for certain practical expedients. Transition will require application of the new model at the beginning of the earliest

comparative period presented. We are in the process of evaluating the impact of the new standard and have not yet determined if it will have a material impact on our business or our consolidated financial statements.

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. ASU 2016-15 intends to reduce diversity in practice for certain cash flow classifications, including, but not limited to (i) debt prepayment or debt extinguishment costs, (ii) contingent consideration payments made after a business combination, (iii) proceeds from the settlement of insurance claims, and (iv) distributions received from equity method investees. ASU 2016-15 will be effective for public business entities in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early application of the guidance permitted. We are in the process of evaluating the impact of adopting ASU 2016-15 on our consolidated financial statements and will adopt the standard for the fiscal year beginning January 1, 2018.

In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-17, Consolidation (Topic 810): Interests Held through Related Parties That Are under Common Control. ASU 2016-17 changes how a reporting entity that is a decision maker should consider indirect interests in a VIE held through an entity under common control. If a decision maker must evaluate whether it is the primary beneficiary of a VIE, it will only need to consider its proportionate indirect interest in the VIE held through a common control party. ASU 2016-17 amends ASU 2015-02, which we adopted on January 1, 2016, and which currently directs the decision maker to treat the common control party’s interest in the VIE as if the decision maker held the interest itself. ASU 2016-17 is effective for public business entities in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those fiscal years. We adopted ASU 2016-17 as of January 1, 2017 on a prospective basis. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Restricted Cash. ASU 2016-18 intends to reduce diversity in practice for the classification and presentation of changes in restricted cash on the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-18 requires that a statement of cash flows explain the change during the period in the total of cash, cash equivalents, and amounts generally described as restricted cash or restricted cash equivalents. Therefore, 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. ASU 2016-18 will be effective for public business entities in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. We are in the process of evaluating the impact of adopting ASU 2016-18 on our consolidated financial statements and will adopt the standard for the fiscal year beginning January 1, 2018.

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-01, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Clarifying the Definition of a Business. ASU 2017-01 clarifies the definition of a business with the objective of adding guidance to assist companies and other reporting organizations with evaluating whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions (or disposals) of assets or businesses. The changes to the definition of a business will likely result in more acquisitions being accounted for as asset acquisitions across all industries. The guidance is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and the interim periods within those annual periods. We expect to adopt this new guidance on January 1, 2018. We are in the process of evaluating whether this ASU will have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In February 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-05, Other Income – Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets (Subtopic 610-20). ASU 2017-05 clarifies that a financial asset is within the scope of Subtopic 610-20 if it meets the definition of an in substance nonfinancial asset. The amendments define the term “in substance nonfinancial asset,” in part, as a financial asset promised to a counterparty in a contract if substantially all of the fair value of the assets (recognized and unrecognized) that are promised to the counterparty in the contract is concentrated in nonfinancial assets. If substantially all of the fair value of the assets that are promised to the counterparty in a contract is concentrated in nonfinancial assets, then all of the financial assets promised to the counterparty are in substance nonfinancial assets within the scope of Subtopic 610-20. This amendment also clarifies that nonfinancial assets within the scope of Subtopic 610-20 may include nonfinancial assets transferred within a legal entity to a counterparty. For example, a parent company may transfer control of nonfinancial assets by transferring ownership interests in a consolidated subsidiary. ASU 2017-05 is effective for periods beginning after December 15, 2017, with early application permitted for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016. We are in the process of evaluating the impact of ASU 2017-05 on our consolidated financial statements and have not yet determined the method by which we will adopt the standard.

Asset Management Fees, Dispositions Fees and Loan Refinancing Fees

We pay our Advisor an annual asset management fee equal to 0.5% of the aggregate Average Market Value of our Investments, both as defined in our advisory agreement with our Advisor. Our Advisor is also entitled to receive disposition fees of up to 1.5% of the contract sales price of a property, as well as a loan refinancing fee of up to 1.0% of the principal amount of a refinanced loan, if certain conditions described in the advisory agreement are met. If our Advisor elects to receive all or a portion of its fees in shares, the number of shares issued is determined by dividing the dollar amount of fees by our most recently published estimated net asset value per share, or NAV. At our Advisor’s election, we paid our asset management fees in shares of our common stock for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and in cash for the three months ended March 31, 2016. For the three months ended March 31, 2017, $2.4 million in asset management fees were settled in shares of our common stock. No such fees were settled in shares during the three months ended March 31, 2016. At March 31, 2017, our Advisor owned 1,721,881 shares (1.3%) of our outstanding common stock. Asset management fees are included in Asset management fees to affiliate and other expenses in the consolidated financial statements.

Available Cash Distributions

Carey Watermark Holdings’ special general partner interest entitles it to receive distributions of 10% of Available Cash, as defined in the limited partnership agreement of the Operating Partnership, or Available Cash Distributions, generated by the Operating Partnership, subject to certain limitations. In addition, in the event of the dissolution of the Operating Partnership, Carey Watermark Holdings will be entitled to receive distributions of up to 15% of any net proceeds, provided certain return thresholds are met for the initial investors in the Operating Partnership. Available Cash Distributions are included in Loss (income) attributable to noncontrolling interests in the consolidated financial statements.

Personnel and Overhead Reimbursements/Reimbursable Costs

Under the terms of the advisory agreement, our Advisor generally allocates expenses of dedicated and shared resources, including the cost of personnel, rent and related office expenses, between us and our affiliate, Carey Watermark Investors 2 Incorporated, or CWI 2, based on total pro rata hotel revenues on a quarterly basis. Pursuant to the subadvisory agreement, after we reimburse our Advisor, it will subsequently reimburse the Subadvisor for personnel costs and other charges, including the services of our Chief Executive Officer, subject to the approval of our board of directors. We have also granted restricted stock units to employees of the Subadvisor pursuant to our 2010 Equity Incentive Plan. These reimbursements are included in Corporate general and administrative expenses and Due to related parties and affiliates in the consolidated financial statements.

Acquisition Fees to our Advisor

We pay our Advisor acquisition fees of 2.5% of the total investment cost of the properties acquired, as defined in our advisory agreement, described above, including on our proportionate share of equity method investments and loans originated by us. The total fees to be paid may not exceed 6% of the aggregate contract purchase price of all investments and loans, as measured over a period specified in our advisory agreement.

Note Payable to WPC and Other Transactions with Affiliates

During the three months ended March 31, 2017, our board of directors and the board of directors of WPC approved unsecured loans from WPC to us of up to $25.0 million, or the WPC Line of Credit, at an interest rate equal to the rate at which WPC is able to borrow funds under its senior unsecured credit facility for the purpose of replacing our Senior Credit Facility (Note 9). Any such loans under the WPC Line of Credit are made solely at the discretion of WPC’s management. On March 23, 2017, we borrowed $22.8 million from WPC at the London Interbank Offered Rate, or LIBOR, plus 1.0% and a maturity date of March 22, 2018 and simultaneously repaid and terminated our Senior Credit Facility.

Property Dispositions and Assets and Liabilities Held for Sale

On February 1, 2017, we sold our 100% ownership interests in each of the Hampton Inn Frisco Legacy Park, the Hampton Inn Birmingham Colonnade and the Hilton Garden Inn Baton Rouge Airport to an unaffiliated third party for a contractual sales price of $33.0 million and net proceeds of approximately $7.4 million. The seller assumed the outstanding non-recourse debt on the three properties totaling $26.5 million. We recognized a loss on sale of $0.4 million during the three months ended March 31, 2017. These three properties comprised the held for sale balance at December 31, 2016.

At March 31, 2017, we had one property classified as held for sale as it is probable that this property will be sold within one year from March 31, 2017. There can be no assurance that the property will be sold at the contracted price, or at all.

Construction in Progress

At March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, construction in progress, recorded at cost, was $34.3 million and $26.9 million, respectively, and related primarily to renovations at the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne and the Westin Pasadena (Note 10). We capitalize interest expense and certain other costs, such as property taxes, property insurance, utilities expense and hotel incremental labor costs, related to hotels undergoing major renovations. We capitalized $0.4 million and $0.3 million of such costs during the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. At March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, accrued capital expenditures were $4.4 million and $2.3 million, respectively, representing non-cash investing activity.

Note 5. Equity Investments in Real Estate

At March 31, 2017, we owned equity interests in four Unconsolidated Hotels, three with unrelated third parties and one with CWI 2. We do not control the ventures that own these hotels, but we exercise significant influence over them. We account for these investments under the equity method of accounting (i.e., at cost, increased or decreased by our share of earnings or losses, less distributions, plus contributions and other adjustments required by equity method accounting, such as basis differences from acquisition costs paid to our Advisor that we incur and other-than-temporary impairment charges, if any).

Under the conventional approach of accounting for equity method investments, an investor applies its percentage ownership interest to the venture’s net income to determine the investor’s share of the earnings or losses of the venture. This approach is inappropriate if the venture’s capital structure gives different rights and priorities to its investors. We have priority returns on several of our equity method investments. Therefore, we follow the hypothetical liquidation at book value method in determining our share of these ventures’ earnings or losses for the reporting period as this method better reflects our claim on the ventures’ book value at the end of each reporting period. Earnings for our equity method investments are recognized in accordance with each respective investment agreement and, where applicable, based upon the allocation of the investment’s net assets at book value as if the investment were hypothetically liquidated at the end of each reporting period.

The following table sets forth our ownership interests in our equity investments in real estate and their respective carrying values. The carrying values of these ventures are affected by the timing and nature of distributions (dollars in thousands):

Amortization of the villa/condo rental programs and in-place lease intangibles are included in Depreciation and amortization, and amortization of below-market hotel ground lease, below-market hotel parking garage lease and above-market hotel ground lease intangibles are included in Property taxes, insurance, rent and other in the consolidated financial statements.

Note 7. Fair Value Measurements

The fair value of an asset is defined as the exit price, which is the amount that would either be received when an asset is sold or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The guidance establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy based on the inputs used in measuring fair value. These tiers are: Level 1, for which quoted market prices for identical instruments are available in active markets, such as money market funds, equity securities and U.S. Treasury securities; Level 2, for which there are inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the instrument, such as certain derivative instruments, including interest rate caps and swaps; and Level 3, for securities that do not fall into Level 1 or Level 2 and for which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring us to develop our own assumptions.

Items Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis

Derivative Assets and Liabilities — Our derivative assets and liabilities are comprised of interest rate swaps and caps that were measured at fair value using readily observable market inputs, such as quotations on interest rates. These derivative instruments were classified as Level 2 as these instruments are custom, over-the-counter contracts with various bank counterparties that are not traded in an active market (Note 8).

We did not have any transfers into or out of Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 category of measurements during the three months ended March 31, 2017 or 2016. Gains and losses (realized and unrealized) included in earnings are reported in Other income and (expenses) in the consolidated financial statements.

Our non-recourse debt, net, which we have classified as Level 3, had a carrying value of $1.4 billion and $1.5 billion at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively, and an estimated fair value of $1.4 billion and $1.5 billion at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively. We determined the estimated fair value using a discounted cash flow model with rates that take into account the interest rate risk. We also considered the value of the underlying collateral, taking into account the quality of the collateral and the then-current interest rate.

We estimated that our other financial assets and liabilities had fair values that approximated their carrying values at both March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016.

Items Measured at Fair Value on a Non-Recurring Basis (Including Impairment Charges)

We periodically assess whether there are any indicators that the value of our real estate investments may be impaired or that their carrying value may not be recoverable.

For real estate assets held for investment and related intangible assets in which an impairment indicator is identified, we follow a two-step process to determine whether an asset is impaired and to determine the amount of the charge. First, we compare the carrying value of the property’s asset group to the estimated future undiscounted net cash flows that we expect the property’s asset group will generate, including any estimated proceeds from the eventual sale of the property’s asset group. If this amount is less than the carrying value, the property’s asset group is considered not recoverable. We then measure the impairment charge as the excess of the carrying value of the property’s asset group over the estimated fair value of the property’s asset group, which is primarily determined using market information from outside sources, such as broker quotes, recent comparable sales or third-party appraisals. If relevant market information is not available or is not deemed appropriate, we perform a future net cash flow analysis, discounted for inherent risk associated with each investment.

We classify real estate assets as held for sale when we have entered into a contract to sell the property, all material due diligence requirements have been satisfied or we believe it is probable that the disposition will occur within one year. When we classify an asset as held for sale, we compare the asset’s fair value less estimated cost to sell to its carrying value, and if the fair value less estimated cost to sell is less than the property’s carrying value, we reduce the carrying value to the fair value less estimated cost to sell. We base the fair value on the contract and the estimated cost to sell on information provided by brokers and legal counsel. We will continue to review the property for subsequent changes in the fair value and may recognize an additional impairment charge, if warranted.

We determined that the significant inputs used to value these investments fall within Level 3 for fair value reporting. As a result of our assessments, we calculated an impairment charge based on market conditions and assumptions that existed at the time. The valuation of real estate is subject to significant judgment and actual results may differ materially if market conditions or the underlying assumptions change. We did not recognize any impairment charges during the three months ended March 31, 2017 or 2016.

Note 8. Risk Management and Use of Derivative Financial Instruments

Risk Management

In the normal course of our ongoing business operations, we encounter economic risk. There are two main components of economic risk that impact us: interest rate risk and market risk. We are primarily subject to interest rate risk on our interest-bearing assets and liabilities. Market risk includes changes in the value of our properties and related loans.

Derivative Financial Instruments

When we use derivative instruments, it is generally to reduce our exposure to fluctuations in interest rates. We have not entered into, and do not plan to enter into, financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes. In addition to entering into derivative instruments on our own behalf, we may also be a party to derivative instruments that are embedded in other contracts, which are considered to be derivative instruments. The primary risks related to our use of derivative instruments include a counterparty to a hedging arrangement defaulting on its obligation and a downgrade in the credit quality of a counterparty to such an extent that our ability to sell or assign our side of the hedging transaction is impaired. While we seek to mitigate these risks by entering into hedging arrangements with large financial institutions that we deem to be creditworthy, it is possible that our hedging transactions, which are intended to limit losses, could adversely affect our earnings. Furthermore, if we terminate a hedging arrangement, we may be obligated to pay certain costs, such as transaction or breakage fees. We have established policies and procedures for risk assessment and the approval, reporting and monitoring of derivative financial instrument activities.

We measure derivative instruments at fair value and record them as assets or liabilities, depending on our rights or obligations under the applicable derivative contract. Derivatives that are not designated as hedges must be adjusted to fair value through earnings. For a derivative designated, and that qualified, as a cash flow hedge, the effective portion of the change in fair value of the derivative is recognized in Other comprehensive income (loss) until the hedged item is recognized in earnings. The ineffective portion of the change in fair value of any derivative is immediately recognized in earnings.

All derivative transactions with an individual counterparty are governed by a master International Swap and Derivatives Association agreement, which can be considered as a master netting arrangement; however, we report all our derivative instruments on a gross basis in our consolidated financial statements. At both March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, no cash collateral had been posted nor received for any of our derivative positions.

We recognized unrealized losses of $0.1 million and $1.3 million in Other comprehensive income (loss) on derivatives in connection with our interest rate swaps and caps during the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

We reclassified $0.2 million and $0.3 million from Other comprehensive income (loss) on derivatives into Interest expense during the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

Amounts reported in Other comprehensive income (loss) related to interest rate swaps and caps will be reclassified to Interest expense as interest expense is incurred on our variable-rate debt. At March 31, 2017, we estimated that an additional $0.6 million, inclusive of amounts attributable to noncontrolling interests of less than $0.1 million, will be reclassified as Interest expense during the next 12 months related to our interest rate swaps and caps.

Interest Rate Swaps and Caps

We are exposed to the impact of interest rate changes primarily through our borrowing activities. To limit this exposure, we attempt to obtain mortgage financing on a long-term, fixed-rate basis. However, from time to time, we or our investment partners may obtain variable-rate non-recourse mortgage loans and, as a result, may enter into interest rate swap or cap agreements with counterparties. Interest rate swaps, which effectively convert the variable-rate debt service obligations of a loan to a fixed rate, are agreements in which one party exchanges a stream of interest payments for a counterparty’s stream of cash flow over a specific period. The face amount on which the swaps are based is not exchanged. An interest rate cap limits the effective borrowing rate of variable-rate debt obligations while allowing participants to share in downward shifts in interest rates. Our objective in using these derivatives is to limit our exposure to interest rate movements.

The interest rate swaps and caps that we had outstanding on our Consolidated Hotels at March 31, 2017 were designated as cash flow hedges and are summarized as follows (dollars in thousands):

Credit Risk-Related Contingent Features

We measure our credit exposure on a counterparty basis as the net positive aggregate estimated fair value of our derivatives, net of any collateral received. No collateral was received as of March 31, 2017. At March 31, 2017, both our total credit exposure and the maximum exposure to any single counterparty were $0.1 million.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

Some of the agreements we have with our derivative counterparties contain cross-default provisions that could trigger a declaration of default on our derivative obligations if we default, or are capable of being declared in default, on certain of our indebtedness. At March 31, 2017, we had not been declared in default on any of our derivative obligations. At March 31, 2017, we had no derivatives that were in a net liability position. At December 31, 2016, the estimated fair value of our derivatives in a net liability position was less than $0.1 million, which included accrued interest and any nonperformance risk adjustments. If we had breached any of these provisions at December 31, 2016, we could have been required to settle our obligations under these agreements at their aggregate termination value of less than $0.1 million.

___________
(a)
Many of our mortgage loans have extension options, which are subject to certain conditions. The maturity dates in the table do not reflect the extension options.
(b)
These mortgage loans have variable interest rates, which have effectively been capped or converted to fixed rates through the use of interest rate caps or swaps (Note 8). The interest rate range presented for these mortgage loans reflect the rates in effect at March 31, 2017 through the use of an interest rate cap or swap, when applicable.

Most of our mortgage loan agreements contain “lock-box” provisions, which permit the lender to access or sweep a hotel’s excess cash flow and would be triggered under limited circumstances, including the failure to maintain minimum debt service coverage ratios. If a provision were triggered, we would generally be permitted to spend an amount equal to our budgeted hotel operating expenses, taxes, insurance and capital expenditure reserves for the relevant hotel. The lender would then hold all excess cash flow after the payment of debt service in an escrow account until certain performance hurdles are met. At December 31, 2016, the minimum debt service coverage ratio for the Holiday Inn Manhattan 6th Avenue Chelsea was not met; therefore, a cash management agreement was enacted that permits the lender to sweep the hotel’s excess cash flow. As of March 31, 2017, this ratio was still not met and the cash management agreement remained in effect.

Covenants

Pursuant to our mortgage loan agreements, our consolidated subsidiaries are subject to various operational and financial covenants, including minimum debt service coverage ratios. At March 31, 2017, we were in compliance with the applicable covenants for each of our mortgage loans.

Senior Credit Facility

At December 31, 2016, we had a senior credit facility that provided for a $25.0 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility, or our Senior Credit Facility. The Senior Credit Facility bore interest at LIBOR plus 2.75%, was scheduled to mature on December 4, 2017 and had an outstanding balance of $22.8 million at December 31, 2016. On March 23, 2017, we repaid the $22.8 million outstanding balance using proceeds from the WPC Line of Credit (Note 3) and simultaneously terminated our Senior Credit Facility. We recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt of $0.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2017 on this termination, related primarily to the write-off of unamortized deferred financing costs.

Financing Activity During 2017

During the three months ended March 31, 2017, we refinanced one non-recourse mortgage loan of $19.1 million with a new non-recourse mortgage loan of $15.5 million, which has a fixed interest rate of 5.9% and term of 5.0 years. We recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt of less than $0.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2017 in connection with this refinancing.

Note 10. Commitments and Contingencies

At March 31, 2017, we were not involved in any material litigation. Various claims and lawsuits arising in the normal course of business are pending against us, but we do not expect the results of such proceedings to have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial position or results of operations.

Hotel Management Agreements

As of March 31, 2017, our Consolidated Hotel properties were operated pursuant to long-term management agreements with 13 different management companies, with initial terms ranging from three to 30 years. For hotels operated with separate franchise agreements, each management company receives a base management fee, generally ranging from 1.5% to 3.5% of hotel revenues. Four of our management agreements contain the right and license to operate the hotels under specified brands; no separate franchise agreements exist and no separate franchise fee is required for these hotels. The management agreements that include the benefit of a franchise agreement incur a base management fee equal to 3.0% of hotel revenues. The management companies are generally also eligible to receive an incentive management fee, which is typically calculated as a percentage of operating profit, either (i) in excess of projections with a cap or (ii) after we have received a priority return on our investment in the hotel. For the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, we incurred management fee expense, including amortization of deferred management fees, of $5.6 million and $5.5 million, respectively.

Franchise Agreements

As of March 31, 2017, we had 12 franchise agreements with Marriott owned brands, six with Hilton owned brands, two with InterContinental Hotels owned brands and one with a Hyatt owned brand related to our Consolidated Hotels. The franchise agreements have initial terms ranging from 10 to 25 years. This number excludes four hotels that receive the benefits of a franchise agreement pursuant to management agreements, as discussed above. Also, three of our Consolidated Hotels are independent and not subject to franchise agreements. Our franchise agreements grant us the right to the use of the brand name, systems and marks with respect to specified hotels and establish various management, operational, record-keeping, accounting, reporting and marketing standards and procedures that the licensed hotel must comply with. In addition, the franchisor establishes requirements for the quality and condition of the hotel and its furniture, fixtures and equipment, and we are obligated to expend such funds as may be required to maintain the hotel in compliance with those requirements. Typically, our franchise agreements provide for a license fee, or royalty, of 3.0% to 7.0% of room revenues and, if applicable, 2.0% to 3.0% of food and beverage revenue. In addition, we generally pay 1.0% to 4.0% of room revenues as marketing and reservation system contributions for the system-wide benefit of brand hotels. Franchise fees are included in sales and marketing expense in our consolidated financial statements. For the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, we incurred franchise fee expense, including amortization of deferred franchise fees, of $4.7 million and $4.8 million, respectively.

Renovation Commitments

Certain of our hotel franchise and loan agreements require us to make planned renovations to our Consolidated Hotels (Note 4). We do not currently expect, and are not obligated, to fund any planned renovations on our Unconsolidated Hotels beyond our original investment.

At March 31, 2017, ten hotels were either undergoing renovation or in the planning stage of renovations, and we currently expect that three will be completed during the second quarter of 2017, three will be completed during the second half of 2017, two will be completed during the first half of 2018 and two will be completed during the second half of 2018.

Capital Expenditures and Reserve Funds

With respect to our hotels that are operated under management or franchise agreements with major national hotel brands and for most of our hotels subject to mortgage loans, we are obligated to maintain furniture, fixtures and equipment reserve accounts for future capital expenditures at these hotels, sufficient to cover the cost of routine improvements and alterations at the hotels. The amount funded into each of these reserve accounts is generally determined pursuant to the management agreements, franchise agreements and/or mortgage loan documents for each of the respective hotels and typically ranges between 2% and 5% of the respective hotel’s total gross revenue. As of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016$30.9 million and $29.3 million, respectively, was held in furniture, fixtures and equipment reserve accounts for future capital expenditures, and is included in Restricted cash in the consolidated financial statements.

Note 12. Income Taxes

We elected to be treated as a REIT and believe that we have been organized and have operated in such a manner to maintain our qualification as a REIT for federal and state income tax purposes. As a REIT, we are generally not subject to corporate level federal income taxes on earnings distributed to our stockholders. Since inception, we have distributed at least 100% of our taxable income annually and intend to do so for the tax year ending December 31, 2017. Accordingly, we have not included any provisions for federal income taxes related to the REIT in the accompanying consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016. We conduct business in various states and municipalities within the United States, and, as a result, we or one or more of our subsidiaries file income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and various state jurisdictions. As a result, we are subject to certain state and local taxes and a provision for such taxes is included in the consolidated financial statements.

Certain of our subsidiaries have elected taxable REIT subsidiary, or TRS, status. A TRS may provide certain services considered impermissible for REITs and may hold assets that REITs may not hold directly. The accompanying consolidated financial statements include an interim tax provision for our TRSs for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016. Current income tax expense was $1.1 million and $1.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

Our TRSs are subject to U.S. federal and state income taxes. As such, deferred tax assets and liabilities are established for temporary differences between the financial reporting basis and the tax basis of assets and liabilities at the enacted tax rates expected to be in effect when the temporary differences reverse. A valuation allowance for deferred tax assets is provided if we believe that more likely than not we will not realize the deferred tax asset based on available evidence at the time the determination is made. A change in circumstances may cause us to change our judgment about whether a deferred tax asset will more likely than not be realized. We generally report any change in the valuation allowance through our income statement in the period in which such changes in circumstances occur. Deferred tax assets (net of valuation allowance) and liabilities for our TRSs were recorded, as necessary, as of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016. Deferred tax assets (net of valuation allowance) totaled $3.7 million and $4.4 million at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively, and are included in Other assets in the consolidated financial statements. Deferred tax liabilities totaled $5.5 million and $7.5 million at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively, and are included in Accounts payable, accrued expenses and other liabilities in the consolidated financial statements. The majority of our deferred tax assets relate to net operating losses, accrued expenses and key money liability. The majority of our deferred tax liabilities relate to differences between the tax basis and financial reporting basis of the villa/condo rental management agreements. Benefit from income taxes included deferred income tax benefits of $1.4 million and $2.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

Note 13. Subsequent Event

On May 11, 2017, we sold our 100% ownership interest in the Hampton Inn Boston Braintree to an unaffiliated third party, for a contractual sales price of $19.0 million.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations is intended to provide the reader with information that will assist in understanding our financial statements and the reasons for changes in certain key components of our financial statements from period to period. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations also provides the reader with our perspective on our financial position and liquidity, as well as certain other factors that may affect our future results. Our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations should be read in conjunction with the 2016 Annual Report and subsequent reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Business Overview

As described in more detail in Item 1 of the 2016 Annual Report, we are a publicly-owned, non-listed REIT that invests in, and through our Advisor, manages and seeks to enhance the value of, our interests in lodging and lodging-related properties. At March 31, 2017, we held ownership interests in 32 hotels, with a total of 8,460 rooms.

We have invested the proceeds from our initial public offering and follow-on offering in a diversified lodging portfolio, including full-service, select-service and resort hotels. Our results of operations are significantly impacted by seasonality, acquisition-related expenses and by hotel renovations. We often invest in hotels that then undergo significant renovations. Generally, during the renovation period, a portion of total rooms are unavailable and hotel operations are often disrupted, negatively impacting our results of operations.

On April 12, 2017, we announced that our Advisor had determined our NAV as of December 31, 2016 to be $10.80 per share of common stock, based on shares outstanding at December 31, 2016. Our NAV was calculated by our Advisor relying in part on appraisals of the fair market value of our real estate portfolio at December 31, 2016 and estimates of the fair market value of our mortgage debt at the same date, both provided by independent third parties. The net amount was then adjusted for estimated disposition fees payable to our advisor and our other net assets and liabilities at the same date. For additional information on the calculation of our NAV and the uses for which the NAV serves as the basis at December 31, 2016, please see our Current Report on Form 8-K dated April 12, 2017.

Management Changes

On March 28, 2017, we announced that Ms. Mallika Sinha was appointed as our Chief Financial Officer effective March 24, 2017, succeeding Ms. ToniAnn Sanzone, who resigned from that position, effective as of that same date. Ms. Sanzone will remain Chief Financial Officer of WPC. Ms. Sinha, who was also appointed as the Chief Financial Officer of CWI 2 on the same date, served as our Executive Director – Corporate Finance from January 2016 to March 2017, having served as Senior Vice President – Corporate Finance from March 2013 to December 2016.

Financings

During the three months ended March 31, 2017, we refinanced one non-recourse mortgage loan of $19.1 million with a new non-recourse mortgage loan of $15.5 million, which has an interest rate 5.9% and a term of 5.0 years. We recognized a net loss on extinguishment of debt of less than $0.1 million (Note 9).

Senior Credit Facility

At December 31, 2016, we had a senior credit facility that provided for a $25.0 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility, or our Senior Credit Facility. The Senior Credit Facility bore interest at LIBOR plus 2.75%, was scheduled to mature on December 4, 2017 and had an outstanding balance of $22.8 million at December 31, 2016. On March 23, 2017, we repaid the $22.8 million outstanding balance using proceeds from the WPC Line of Credit (Note 3, Note 9) and simultaneously terminated our Senior Credit Facility. We recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt of $0.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2017 on this termination.

___________
(a)
We consider the performance metrics listed above, including funds from operations, or FFO, and modified funds from operations, or MFFO, which are supplemental measures that are not defined by GAAP, or non-GAAP measures, to be important measures in the evaluation of our results of operations and capital resources. We evaluate our results of operations with a primary focus on the ability to generate cash flow necessary to meet our objective of funding distributions to stockholders. See Supplemental Financial Measures below for our definitions of these non-GAAP measures and reconciliations to their most directly comparable GAAP measures.

The comparison of our results period over period is influenced by both the number and size of the hotels consolidated in each of the respective periods. At March 31, 2017, we owned 28 Consolidated Hotels, compared to 31 Consolidated Hotels at March 31, 2016.

(e)
On August 26, 2016, we acquired a single-family residence adjacent to the hotel, which we intend to renovate to create additional available rooms and event space at the resort.
(f)
On October 3, 2014, we acquired the Marriott Sawgrass Golf Resort & Spa as a Consolidated Hotel. On April 1, 2015, we sold a 50% controlling interest to CWI 2 and began accounting for our interest in the hotel as an equity method investment. Our initial investment represents our remaining 50% interest in the Marriott Sawgrass Golf Resort & Spa venture after selling our 50% controlling interest to CWI 2 on April 1, 2015.

Results of Operations

We evaluate our results of operations with a primary focus on our ability to generate cash flow necessary to meet our objectives of funding distributions to stockholders and increasing the value of our real estate investments. As a result, our assessment of operating results gives less emphasis to the effect of unrealized gains and losses, which may cause fluctuations in net income for comparable periods but have no impact on cash flows, and to other non-cash charges, such as depreciation and impairment charges.

In addition, we use other information that may not be financial in nature, including statistical information, to evaluate the operating performance of our business, such as occupancy rate, average daily rate, or ADR, and revenue per available room, or RevPAR. Occupancy rate, ADR and RevPAR are commonly used measures within the hotel industry to evaluate operating performance. RevPAR, which is calculated as the product of ADR and occupancy rate, is an important statistic for monitoring operating performance at our hotels. Our occupancy rate, ADR and RevPAR performance may be impacted by macroeconomic factors such as U.S. economic conditions, regional and local employment growth, personal income and corporate earnings, business relocation decisions, business and leisure travel, new hotel construction and the pricing strategies of competitors.

The comparability of our results year over year are impacted by, among other factors, the timing of acquisition and/or disposition activity and the timing of any renovation-related activity.
