ENHANCED RETURN FUNDING PROGRAM

On June 26, 2018 the Company announced that it had entered into an agreement with Ashford Hospitality Trust, Inc. (NYSE:AHT) ("Ashford Trust" or "Trust") for the new Enhanced Return Funding Program ("ERFP" or the "Program"). Under the Program, the Company has agreed to provide $50 million to Ashford Trust in connection with the acquisition by Ashford Trust of additional hotels. Ashford will provide 10% of the purchase price of each hotel acquired by Ashford Trust, helping Ashford Trust grow its assets by as much as $500 million. The Company will target funding the Program with approximately 50% cash on hand and 50% debt. The Program will replace Ashford's legacy Key Money concept and has the ability to be upsized to up to $100 million based upon mutual agreement.

Ashford Trust's acquisition of the Hilton Alexandria Old Town located in Alexandria, Virginia, which was completed on June 29, 2018 for total consideration of $111 million, is the first hotel acquisition to benefit from the Program. In connection with this acquisition and subject to the terms of the ERFP, the Company has committed to provide Ashford Trust with approximately $11.1 million of cash via the future purchase of hotel furniture, fixtures, and equipment at Ashford Trust properties.

The Program is expected to generate attractive returns on invested capital for Ashford via incremental base advisory fees, potential incentive fees, fees for various products and services offered, and tax savings. The Company anticipates funding the Program with existing cash on its balance sheet, its existing credit facility and with ongoing cash flow.

ACQUISITION OF REMINGTON'S PROJECT MANAGEMENT BUSINESS

On August 8, 2018 the Company announced that it had completed the acquisition of the Project Management business of privately-held Remington Holdings, L.P. ("Remington") for $203 million.  The transaction received the support of 87% of shares that voted at the special meeting. The Company also announced that a majority of shares excluding shares owned by Ashford Trust, Braemar Hotels & Resorts (NYSE:BHR) ("Braemar"), and insiders and related parties, present and voting at the meeting voted in favor of the proposal. 

Remington's Project Management business provides comprehensive and cost-effective design, development, and project management services. It provides project oversight, coordination, planning, and execution of renovation, capital expenditure or ground-up development projects. Its operations are responsible for managing and implementing substantially all capital improvements at Ashford Trust and Braemar.  Additionally, it has extensive experience working with many of the major hotel brands in the areas of renovating, converting, developing or repositioning hotels. In 2017, Remington Project Management had revenues of approximately $29.0 million and adjusted EBITDA of approximately $16.3 million.

The purchase price was paid by issuing convertible preferred stock to the sellers. The newly created convertible preferred stock has a conversion price of $140 per share (a 45% premium to the trading level at the time of the announcement) and, if converted, would convert into an estimated 1,450,000 shares of common stock.  Dividends on the convertible preferred stock are payable at an annual rate of 5.5% in the first year, 6.0% in the second year, and 6.5% in the third year and each year thereafter. Voting rights of the convertible preferred stock will be on an as-converted basis, and the holders of the convertible preferred stock will have a voting limit of 25% of the Company's voting securities for five years.

J&S AUDIO VISUAL UPDATE

The Company currently owns an 85% controlling interest in a privately held company that conducts the business of J&S Audio Visual in the United States, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic ("J&S"). J&S provides an integrated suite of audio visual services, including show and event services, hospitality services, creative services, and design and integration, making J&S a leading single-source solution for their clients' meeting and event needs.  In the second full quarter since the Company's investment, revenue growth at J&S was 23% and Adjusted EBITDA growth was 50% as compared to the prior year period.  Since Ashford's investment in November 2017 through the end of the second quarter, revenues at J&S increased $10.1 million, or 22%, and Adjusted EBITDA increased $2.7 million, or 55%, over the prior year period. Additionally, J&S executed five new hotel contracts during the second quarter.

"We are pleased with our second quarter operating results which reflect the continued execution of our growth strategy," commented Monty J. Bennett, Ashford's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We are excited to have completed the Remington Project Management acquisition as it will add scale, diversification and enhance our competitive position in the hospitality industry by expanding the services we can offer to both our advised REITs as well as other hospitality companies.  Additionally, both J&S and Lismore significantly contributed to our strong growth in Adjusted EBITDA during the quarter.  We also entered into an agreement with Ashford Trust for the new Enhanced Return Funding Program and utilized the ERFP to partner with Trust on its acquisition of the Hilton Alexandria Old Town hotel. We believe this new ERFP Program could result in substantial growth in assets under management for us while delivering attractive returns to our shareholders.  We were also pleased to become a member of the U.S. small-cap Russell 2000® Index, one of the most widely used performance benchmarks for small-cap companies. We believe our inclusion will provide increased visibility within the investment community and improve the liquidity of our stock. Looking ahead, we remain committed to maximizing value for our shareholders and are well positioned to opportunistically grow our business by accretively expanding our existing REIT platforms, adding additional investment platforms and investing in other hospitality-related businesses through which we can accelerate meaningful, profitable growth."

INVESTOR CONFERENCE CALL AND SIMULCAST

The Company will conduct a conference call on Friday, August 10, 2018, at 11:00 a.m. ET.  The number for this interactive teleconference is (323) 794-2590.  A replay of the conference call will be available through Friday, August 17, 2018, by dialing (719) 457-0820 and entering the confirmation number 3206187.

The Company will also provide an online simulcast and rebroadcast of its second quarter 2018 earnings release conference call.  The live broadcast of the Company's quarterly conference call will be available online at the Company's web site, www.ashfordinc.com on Friday, August 10, 2018, beginning at 11:00 a.m. ET.  The online replay will follow shortly after the call and continue for approximately one year.

Included in this press release are certain supplemental measures of performance which are not measures of operating performance under GAAP, to assist investors in evaluating the Company's historical or future financial performance. These supplemental measures include adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") and Adjusted Net Income. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income provide investors and management with a meaningful indicator of operating performance. Management also uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income, among other measures, to evaluate profitability and our board of directors includes these measures in reviews to determine quarterly distributions to stockholders. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA by subtracting or adding to net income (loss): interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, net income (loss) to noncontrolling interests, transaction costs, and other expenses. We calculate Adjusted Net Income by subtracting or adding to net income (loss): net income (loss) to noncontrolling interests, transaction costs, and other expenses. Our methodology for calculating Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income may differ from the methodologies used by other comparable companies, when calculating the same or similar supplemental financial measures and may not be comparable with these companies. Neither Adjusted EBITDA nor Adjusted Net Income represents cash generated from operating activities as determined by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to a) GAAP net income (loss) as an indication of our financial performance or b) GAAP cash flows from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity nor are such measures indicative of funds available to satisfy our cash needs. The Company urges investors to carefully review the U.S. GAAP financial information as shown in our periodic reports on Form 10-Q and Form 10-K, as amended and our Current Report on Form 8-K to reflect the acquisition of the Remington project management business.
