TORONTO, Aug. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Skyline Investments(the “Company”) (TASE: SKLN), is a Canadian company that specializes in hospitality real estate investments in the United States and Canada, published its first half and second quarter 2019 results.
Skyline CEO Blake Lyon said: “During the first half of 2019, Skyline has continued to improve over the 2018 comparable financial results which were the highest ever achieved in the Company’s 20-year history. The net profit of the company excluding minority interests in H1 2019 amounted to CAD $2.4M, compared to a net loss of $0.8M in the same period of 2018. Both EBITDA and FFO increased in this first half of 2019. This reflects investments made in our properties and the acquisition of the 13 Courtyard by Marriott hotels in 2017. After enhancing its portfolio from 7 assets in 2016 to 18 assets as of today, Skyline has much more diversification in its earnings and cash flow.
During the second quarter of 2019 we provided interim occupancy to 63 units at Lakeside Lodge and 83 units joined the rental program, increasing the room count at Deerhurst resort by 27%. Skyline continues its strategy to monetize its land assets and in June 2019 sold the second half of Highlands Golf Course at Horseshoe for CAD 2.9M, approximately $1M above the book value.”

First Half 2019 Results
- Total revenue for H1 2019 was CAD $130.6M, an increase of 19% over corresponding period total revenue of CAD $109.8M. Revenue from income-producing assets has increased by approx. CAD $3.8M, mainly due to a combined improvement at Horseshoe and Bear Valley. Revenue from sale of residential real estate was CAD $33.9M, well above CAD $16.9M last year. During H1 2019, the Company provided occupancy to 77 units at Lakeside Lodge and recognized revenue of $29.7M.
- Same property NOI in H1 2019 amounted to CAD $21.5, an increase of 3.2%, compared to CAD $20.8M in the previous period. Horseshoe and Bear Valley presented a significant NOI growth due to improved weather conditions, compared to the previous years and the installation of a new high-speed ski lift, which allowed ticket prices to increase. This improvement was offset by the results of Deerhurst resort due to cool wet spring this year and by Courtyard portfolio due to the Renovation of Fort Myers and an increase in property taxes. Management is continuing to work on efficiency and other new revenue initiatives that it believes will contribute positively to increasing the future earnings of the Courtyards. The Courtyard have delivered almost a 10% unlevered return and have contributed significantly to Skyline's record earnings.
- Adjusted EBITDA in H1 2019 increased by 13.1% to CAD $23.7M, compared to CAD $20.9M in the same period last year. This improvement is mainly attributed to improvement in the Same property NOI, higher profit from sale of residential real estate and lower Marketing, Administrative and General expenses.
- Gain (Loss) from fair value adjustments amounted to positive CAD $0.3M, compared with loss of CAD $4.8M in the same period last year when the Company reduced the values of its Blue Mountain development lands.
- Derecognition of investment costs and other capital losses in H1 2019 of CAD $1.3M was mainly attributed to the expiration of an agreement with an unrelated third party to assume the acquisition of the Bahamas project. The Company determined that the remaining costs that were to be reimbursed by the third party were to be written off in Q1 2019.
- Loss from early extinguishment of debt in H1 2019 was CAD $2.7M. This amount is attributable to the sale of the Blue Mountain retail in Q1 2019 that had a high interest loan (6.75%) for which the Company had to pay an early loan repayment fee.
- Financing expense in H1 2019 totaled CAD $10.7M, compared to CAD $9.9M in the corresponding period last year. The increase in financial expense is due to the increase in both the amount of floating rate debt and an increase in interest rates during the comparable period.
- Net profit in H1 2019 amounted to CAD $1.6M, compared to a net loss of CAD $1.76M in the same period last year. Excluding minority interests the Company had a net profit of CAD $2.4 in the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to net loss of $0.8M in the same period of 2018.

As a result, the Company has increased the room count at Deerhurst resort from 308 rooms to 391 rooms, an increase of 27%.
- Same property income-producing asset NOI in Q2 2019 was CAD $9.2M, compared to CAD $10.2M last year. The majority of the decline was due to a cool wet spring in Ontario that effected results of Deerhurst resort.

- Other Comprehensive Income. At the end of the second quarter the Company made the decision to write down the Renaissance Hotel’s fair value by CAD $11.9M (Net of differed tax Skyline’s 50% share is CAD 4.5M). The non-cash write down was a result of an increased estimate for the property improvement plan. The Company is considering proposals to sell all or part of the property.
