Park Hotels & Resorts: No Expansion Possible Due To Their Large Debt Problem
Summary Park Hotels & Resorts' financial position has greatly improved since the corona crisis. I give Park Hotels & Resorts a sell rating because of the large amount of debt on their balance sheet. Refinancing would be an ideal option, but I suspect Park Hotels will need to issue additional shares to meet their debt obligations. There is no room left for expansion of the Park Hotels & Resorts Inc. business. Introduction I am looking back at a real estate investment trust ("REIT") I bought in my portfolio in mid-2020. This REIT is Park Hotels & Resorts Inc. (PK). Park Hotels spun off from Hilton in 2017 in an effort to lower their taxes and increase shareholder value. Shareholders holding Hilton Worldwide (HLT) shares did well, but Park Hotels' share price lagged. PK Total Return Level data by YCharts Park Hotels is a REIT with a real estate portfolio of approximately 60 hotels and resorts. Hotels and resorts have been hit hard by the mandatory closures during the corona crisis. At the time, it was my "speculation" hoping things would work out, so I took a small position in Park Hotels. At the beginning of 2021, I sold my position for a profit. I like to go on holiday, the hotels and resorts of Park Hotels look neat, but I still give it a sell rating because of the large amount of debt on their balance sheet. I expect this will deter them from making future investments. The proceeds from the equity offering will have to be used in conjunction with refinancing their debt to reduce their debt burden. This is not a good prospect. Financial Improvement, But High Debt Burden Park Hotels' financial position has greatly improved since the corona crisis. In 2020, their sales fell by 71%, but in 2021 their sales are about half of their 2019 sales. There is clearly visible recovery. Park Hotels recently raised their outlook in May. Their EBITDA has improved significantly since the coronavirus crisis and their RevPAR and Adjusted EBITDA expectations have been revised upwards. Increased Q2 2022 Guidance (May 2022 Investor Presentation ) I'm not going to use their current numbers in this analysis, as I expect the recovery to continue and their revenues to return to 2019 levels. What worries me is their long-term debts. Major repayments will be made in 2023 and 2026. The other debts are well distributed over the other years. In the years 2024, 2027, 2030 and beyond, there is an opportunity to refinance their large debt from 2023 and 2026 – at higher interest rates. Debt Maturity Schedule (May 2022 Investor Presentation) Refinancing would be an ideal option, but I suspect Park Hotels will need to issue additional shares to meet their debt obligations. In their 2019 annual report (their best year), Park Hotels generated an adjusted funds from operations ("FFO") of $613 million. Adjusted FFO 2019 and 2018 (2019 Annual Report) If we compare the adjusted FFO of $613 million for 2019 with their debt level for the coming years, we see that their debt level is higher than their 2019 adjusted FFO. They will have to refinance the high debt in 2023 and 2026 at a higher interest rate. The adjusted FFO of 2019 is the most favorable level, Park Hotels is still on track to recover. Debt maturity schedule and adjusted FFO 2019 (May 2022 Investor Presentation and Authors' Own Modification) In parallel with the refinancing, they can raise money by issuing additional shares. However, this is disadvantageous for shareholders if the proceeds are only used to pay off debts, because this does not generate any income and dilute shares. A REIT generally issues stocks to invest in real estate, which in turn generates rental income. 90% of the profit is paid out as a dividend. Park Hotels' debts are generally high and I expect that they will not be able to make new investments and will have to focus entirely on paying off their debts.
