Selina Hospitality PLC ("Selina" or the “Company”), (NASDAQ: SLNA), the fast-growing lifestyle and experiential hospitality company targeting millennial and Gen Z travelers, announced today unaudited financial results for the second quarter and the first half of 2023.

Rafael Museri, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Selina, said, "Selina continues to focus on three key strategic areas: improving cash flow, advancing toward profitability, and building our brand. During the second quarter, we made progress in our core operating metrics, which reflects these strategic objectives. Through targeted cost-cutting and operational improvements, we continue to make strides in our Adjusted EBITDA and Operating Cash Flow. Our recently announced partnership with Global University Systems (GUS) strengthens our financial standing and extends our reach to new audiences.”

Q2’23 Highlights

  • Total second quarter 2023 revenue of $52.5 million, an increase of $7.2 million, or 15.9% compared to second quarter 2022, driven primarily by an increase in bedspaces from newly opened locations, higher occupancy rates, and higher total revenue per bedspace.
  • Occupancy rate was 51.4% in Q2 2023, compared to 45.9% for Q2 2022, a 12.0% increase, driven by improved brand awareness and brand loyalty, a dedicated regional sales force and commercial teams, and the continued seasoning of our recently opened properties.
  • Total annualized revenue per bedspace was $6,931 in Q2 2023, compared to $6,448 in Q2 2022, a 7.5% increase, driven by the increase in occupancy and the growth coming from developed markets.
  • On a same-store basis (locations operating for the entire comparable periods), total revenue increased by 6%, driven by an increase in same-store occupancy and TRevPABs.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 improved to a $0.7 million loss in Q2 2023, compared to $5.8 million loss in Q2 2022, driven by an increase in Unit Level EBITDA before Rent (Unit Level EBITDAR2), an improvement in Content Brands, and a decrease in Corporate Overhead, offset by an increase in pre-opening expenses.
  • Unit Level EBITDAR for Operative Locations increased from $7.4 million in Q2 2022 to $10.0 million in Q2 2023, driven by the increase in revenues and Gross Operating Profit. Unit level rent, on the other hand, increased from $9.2 million in Q2 2022 to $13.4 million in Q2 2023.
  • Corporate Overhead, as a percentage of revenues, was 17.8% in Q2 2023, compared to 24.2% in Q2 2022, driven by efficiency in country, regional and global functions offset partially by the incremental costs of becoming a publicly listed company.

H1'23 Highlights

  • Total H1 2023 revenue of $106.7 million, an increase of $20.3 million, or 23.4% compared to the first half of 2022, driven primarily by an increase in bedspaces from newly opened locations, higher occupancy rates, and higher total revenue per bedspace.
  • Occupancy rate was 54.1% in H1 2023, compared to 45.5% for H1 2022, a 19.0% increase, driven by improved brand awareness and brand loyalty, a dedicated regional sales force and commercial teams, and the continued seasoning of our recently opened properties.
  • Total annualized revenue per bedspace was $7,039 in H1 2023, compared to $6,466 in H1 2022, a 8.9% increase, driven by the increase in occupancy and the growth coming from developed markets.
  • On a same-store basis (locations operating for the entire comparable periods), total revenue increased by 10% driven by an increase in same-store occupancy and increase in same-store TRevPABs.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 improved to a $0.3 million loss in H1’23, compared to $4.4 million loss in H1’22, driven by a significant increase in Unit Level EBITDA before Rent (Unit Level EBITDAR2) and an improvement in Content Brands operating performance, offset by an increase in pre-opening expenses.
  • Unit Level EBITDAR for Operative Locations increased from $14.9 million in H1’22 to $21.3 million in H1’23, driven by the increase in revenues and Gross Operating Profit. Unit level Rent increased from $17.9 million in H1’22 to $25.5 million in H1’23.
  • Corporate Overhead, as a percentage of revenues, was 18.1% in H1’23, compared to 22.8% in H1’22, driven by efficiency in country, regional and global functions offset partially by the incremental costs of becoming a publicly listed company.

______________________________ 1Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow Before Debt Service are non-IFRS measures. Please see Non-IFRS Financial Measures section for reconciliation. 2Unit Level EBITDAR is a segment performance measure reviewed by the Chief Operating Decision Maker ("CODM") to make decisions about resources to be allocated and assess segment performance. Unit Level EBITDAR is defined as Unit Level earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and before rent.

Operational Optimization

  • During Q2 2023, the Company launched a Labor Restructuring Plan that is anticipated to impact over 350 full-time employees at the unit and corporate levels, with expected annual payroll savings of $5.8 million and a one-time restructuring cost of approximately $1.0 million. The restructuring is expected to be completed by the end of Q3 2023.

Hotel Portfolio Activity

  • Selina has been actively and aggressively executing a comprehensive real estate portfolio optimization plan. This ongoing strategy includes renegotiating all leases through abatements, deferrals, and terminations to significantly reduce rent and operational costs. The closure of five properties in Mexico, U.S., Greece, Austria, and Costa Rica, which contributed $1.2 million of the $3.3 million unit-level operating loss in Q2’23, are expected to be completed by the end of Q3 2023, giving rise to one-time costs of $0.2 million in estimated early termination penalties.
  • During Q2, Selina opened Dakhla, Morocco. Selina ended the period with 114 properties and 28,825 open bedspaces versus 111 properties and 27,415 open bedspaces at June 30, 2022.

Cash and Cash Flow Highlights

  • As of June 30, 2023, the Company had total cash and cash equivalents of $24.6 million.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $3.4 million for Q2 2023, compared to negative $5.2 million in Q2 2022.
  • Free cash flow before debt service (FCF)1 totaled $(13.6) million for Q2 2023, compared to $(20.1) million in Q2 2022.
  • On May 31, 2023, Selina drew $10.0 million under its $50.0 million credit facility with Inter-American Investment Corporation (IDB). As of August 31, 2023, the Company had $10.6 million remaining available to draw under the credit facility, subject to customary draw requirements.
  • In June 2023, Selina completed and received the first tranche of $10.0 million under its strategic investment from GUS, which totals up to $50.0 million. The second tranche of $20.0 million from GUS is contingent on the Company raising $20.0 million through a PIPE capital raise or other equity funding from parties unrelated to GUS.

Liability Management

  • As disclosed in our last Business Update on June 27, 2023, Selina converted approximately $9.5 million owed to a third party under various joint venture arrangements to equity to buy out the third party’s interest in the joint venture. Once fully completed, Selina’s “loan payables” will be reduced by $10.1 million against the amount shown on its balance sheet as of June 30, 2023.

2023 Outlook

  • For the second half of 2023, Selina will continue to be guided by the three strategic imperatives we started the year with: improving cash flow, advancing toward profitability, and building the brand.
  • On June 27, 2023, the Company suspended its revenue guidance for the year as it reassesses its hotel opening plan for 2023 and 2024, as well as the impact of closed locations in 2023 and organizational restructuring.
  • The Company reaffirms its previously provided guidance of achieving positive Adjusted EBITDA and positive Operating Cash Flow for the year. It is noted that the Company's long-term success is contingent on generating profitable operations in the future and securing additional equity or debt financing in the near term. Throughout the second half of 2023, Selina expects to complete the fundraising set out in its strategic transaction with GUS and to raise additional funds, although the success of these fundraising efforts cannot be guaranteed.
  • As noted in its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, despite the Company's operating momentum and progress in achieving its core objectives, it does not yet generate sufficient revenue to cover operating expenses.

KEY METRICS AND NON-IFRS FINANCIAL MEASURES

Management uses a number of operating and financial metrics, including the following key business metrics, to evaluate Selina’s business, measure Selina’s performance, identify trends affecting Selina’s business, formulate financial projections and business plans, and make strategic decisions. Management regularly reviews and may adjust Selina’s processes for calculating Selina’s internal metrics to improve their accuracy. This release includes Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow Before Debt Service, which are not prepared in accordance with the international financing reporting standards issued by IFRS. Management believes that these non-IFRS financial measures provide useful information to investors about our business and financial performance, but there are limitations related to the use of these non-IFRS financial measures and they may not be directly comparable to similar titled measures of other companies. These non-IFRS financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with IFRS and should not be considered as an alternative to any measures derived in accordance with IFRS.

  • When we report figures on a same-store basis, that refers to properties operating for the entire comparable periods.
  • We define our occupancy rate as the number of beds sold divided by the total number of open beds, over any given period.
  • Open beds reflect the total number of beds in inventory at opened properties at the end of any given period. As our properties have the ability to convert rooms into different bed configurations, the total number of open beds may fluctuate at any given location over any given period.
  • Average daily open beds is calculated as the total number of beds in inventory over any given period of time on a daily basis. This metric reflects Selina’s daily accommodation capacity and is used in the calculation of occupancy rate.
  • We define TRevPOB as total revenue, excluding Remote Year revenue, for any given property, for any given period, divided by the number of beds sold in that same period. This measure removes the impact of occupancy, as it reflects total revenue on a per occupied bed basis. Changes in this metric reflect the variability in our business arising from our ability to change room and bed configurations based on demand.
  • We define TRevPOBs as total revenue, excluding Remote Year revenue, for any given property, for any given period, divided by the number of bedspaces sold in that same period. The number of bedspaces sold is determined by multiplying the occupancy rate for any given period by the average of the total number of open bedspaces at the beginning and end of that period. This measure removes the impact of occupancy, as it reflects total revenue on a per occupied bedspace basis.
  • Total revenue per bedspace is calculated as total revenue, excluding Remote Year revenue, for any given property, for any given period, divided by the average of the total number of open bedspaces at the beginning and end of that period. Management views total revenue per bedspace as a useful measure of comparing performance between locations or cohorts over time, as well as providing an indication of future revenue potential as we continue to grow total bedspaces.
  • The number of open bedspaces reflects the total number of bedspaces at opened properties at the end of any given period. Bedspaces is a metric we use to measure the potential sleeping capacity of a given property. It is a static capacity measure, and not one reflecting actual capacity in a given period. Every 5.5m2 of accommodation (sleeping room) area in a property equals one bedspace. Our rooms are designed to be convertible into different modalities and with distinct bed configurations. We offer “Standard” accommodations with one double bed, “Twins'' accommodations with two single beds, “Family” accommodations with space designed to accommodate up to four people, and “Community” accommodations with space designed to accommodate up to eight people. At the discretion of property managers, the double bed in a “Standard'' accommodation can be replaced with a bunk bed for eight guests, for example. Accordingly, management views the number of bedspaces, instead of the number of physical beds, as the static measure of property capacity because it avoids potentially misleading fluctuations that would arise from the changing room configurations in any given property.
  • EBITDA is defined as IFRS net profit (loss) excluding impact of income taxes, net interest expense (finance income and costs), and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA, excluding (i) non-operating income (expense), such as gain on net monetary position, share of profit/(loss) in associates, other non-operating income / (expense), and income from COVID-related concessions, (ii) impairment losses, (iii) non-cash stock-based compensation expense, (iv) non-recurring public company readiness costs, (v) new debt issuance expenses, (vi) one-off restructuring expenses and (vii) provision for tax risks that are non-income tax related.
  • Operating Cash Flow is defined as Net Cash used in Operating Activities in the IFRS Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows. Free Cash Flow Before Debt Service is defined as Operating Cash Flow, minus: (i) repayment on lease liabilities, and (ii) net cash used in investing activities; plus (iii) non-recurring SPAC transaction related payments, and (iv) proceeds from partner loans, to reflect only Selina out-of pocket capital expenditures.
  • Gross Operating Profit / (Loss) is defined as revenue less the direct expenses related to the sale and operation of Rooms, F&B and Other; specifically, cost of goods sold, labour costs, marketing and sales costs, and operating expenses such as laundry, cleaning, linen, contract services, programming expenses, operating supplies and equipment (OS&E), utilities, security, etc.
  • Unit Level EBITDAR is defined as unit level earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and before rent (or similarly, GOP minus other non-operating unit level expenses such as property insurance and property taxes).
  • Unit-Level Operating Profit / (Loss) is defined as Unit Level EBITDAR minus Rent Expense. For segment reporting purposes, and CODM unit level performance assessment purposes, Rent is treated as an operating expense (meaning not applying IFRS 16 to leases). Unit level performance metrics do not include (i) non-cash compensation expense, (ii) impact of corporate overhead costs, which are reviewed and monitored separately and (iii) pre-opening expenses (operating costs incurred prior to opening a new location).
