Q2 2022 Highlights

Blake Lyon, Skyline's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Skyline's operational progress continued during the second quarter of 2022. Skyline's same asset NOI excluding Bear Valley remained constant compared to Q2 2021, as travel activity continues to rebound and Skyline continues to focus on efficiency initiatives. We have begun reinvesting the proceeds received during Q4 2021 from the sale of our Canadian resorts, with the acquisition of the Courtyard Ithaca, which is closed in Q3 2022. Our strong balance sheet will allow us to build on this success throughout the year as we continue to explore expansion opportunities in the hotel sector."

Non-IFRS Measures

The Company's interim condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). However, the following measures: NOI, FFO, FFO per share and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures recognized under IFRS and do not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS, and should not be compared to or construed as alternatives to profit/loss, cash flow from operating activities or other measures of financial performance determined in accordance with IFRS. NOI, FFO, FFO per share and Adjusted EBITDA as computed by the Company, may differ from similar measures as reported by other companies in similar or different industries. However, these non-IFRS measures are recognized supplemental measures of performance for real estate issuers widely used by the real estate industry, particularly by those publicly traded entities that own and operate income-producing properties, and the Company believes they provide useful supplemental information to both management and readers in measuring the financial performance of the Company. Skyline also uses certain supplementary financial measures as key performance indicators. Supplementary financial measures are financial measures that are intended to be disclosed on a periodic basis to depict the historical or expected future financial performance, financial position, or cash flow, that are not disclosed directly in the financial statements and are not non-IFRS measures. Same Asset NOI is a financial measure that is calculated using the same methodology as NOI, but only including NOI from properties owned for 2 full years prior to June 30, 2022.

Further details on non-IFRS measures and Supplementary Financial Measures are set out in the Company's Management's Discussion and Analysis for the period ended June 30, 2022 and available on the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com or MAGNA at www.magna.isa.gov.il and are incorporated by reference in this news release.  

The reconciliations for each non-IFRS measure included in this news release are outlined as follows:

Skyline defines NOI as property revenues less property operating expenses. Management believes that NOI is a useful key indicator of performance on an unlevered basis as it represents a measure over which Management of property operations has control. NOI is also a key input used by management in determining the value of the Properties. NOI is used by industry analysts, investors and Management to measure operating performance of Canadian companies. NOI represents revenue from cash generating properties less property operating expenses excluding depreciation as presented in the consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income prepared in accordance with IFRS.

Given the seasonality of its hospitality operations, NOI for a fiscal year (or trailing four quarters) is considered by Management as a more accurate measure of the Company's performance.

Skyline calculates NOI as operating income before depreciation, valuation adjustments and other income, adjusted for:

i)      Segmented results from Development Segment

      ii)      Selling and Marketing expenses

iii)     Administrative and General expenses

Alternatively, the same result is arrived at by adding segmented results (per note 13 in the condensed interim consolidated financial statements) of the US and Canadian hotels and resorts segments.

 For the three months ended June 30
Operating income before depreciation, valuation adjustments and other income        3,4054,546
Segmented results from Development Segment        43440
Selling and Marketing expenses        53143
Administrative and General Expenses        1,7841,369
NOI from hotels and resorts        5,2856,498
Income from hotels and resorts        30,82624,919
Operating expenses of hotels and resorts        (25,541)(18,421)
NOI from hotels and resorts        5,2856,498


FFO is a non-IFRS financial measure of operating performance widely used by the real estate industry, particularly by those publicly traded entities that own and operate income-producing properties. FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income determined in accordance with IFRS. Skyline calculates its FFO in accordance with the Real Property Association of Canada White Paper on FFO for IFRS issued in January 2022, except for (i) changes in the fair value of financial instruments which are economically effective hedges but do not qualify for hedge accounting, (ii) non-controlling interest, and (iii) operational revenue and expenses from right-of-use assets. The use of FFO, combined with the required IFRS presentations, has been included for the purpose of improving the understanding of the operating results of Skyline.

Management believes that FFO provides an operating performance measure that, when compared period-over- period, reflects the impact on operations of trends in occupancy, room rates, operating costs and realty taxes and interest costs, and provides a perspective of the Company's financial performance that is not immediately apparent from net income determined in accordance with IFRS. FFO adds back to net income items that do not arise from operating activities, such as fair value adjustments, business combination transaction costs, and deferred income taxes, if any. FFO, however, still includes non-cash revenues related to accounting for straight-line rent and makes no deduction for recurring capital expenditures necessary to sustain the Company's existing earnings stream.

Adjusted EBITDA

The Company's operations include income producing assets and revenue from the sale of developed real estate. As such, Management believes Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) is a useful supplemental measure of its operating performance for investors and debt holders.

EBITDA is defined as Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization. The Company calculates Adjusted EBITDA as follows:


Adjusted EBITDA does not include fair value gains, gains on sale or other expenses, and is presented in the Company's consolidated statement of income for the three months ended June 30, 2022 as operating income before depreciation, valuation adjustments and other income.
