Pebblebrook Hotel increases terms of offer to merger with LaSalle Hotel

Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (PEB) released a letter dated August 21, 2018 to the Board of Trustees of LaSalle Hotel Properties (LHO) in which Pebblebrook submitted an enhanced merger proposal for a strategic combination with LaSalle. Under the enhanced terms, Pebblebrook has increased the number of LaSalle common shares that may receive $37.80 in cash per share to up to 30% of LaSalle common shares in aggregate, representing a 50% increase in the number of shares that may receive cash compared to Pebblebrook's prior offer. The increased cash component of the Pebblebrook offer provides additional certainty and greater downside protection to LaSalle's shareholders while also increasing the overall value of the offer. This enhanced proposal was unanimously approved by Pebblebrook's Board of Trustees and will remain outstanding following a rejection by LaSalle shareholders of the proposed transaction between LaSalle and affiliates of The Blackstone Group L.P. (BX), which is scheduled to be voted on by LaSalle shareholders on September 6, 2018. The increased Pebblebrook offer provides LaSalle shareholders with the option to elect to receive for each LaSalle common share they own either a) a fixed amount of $37.80 in cash or b) a fixed exchange ratio of 0.92 Pebblebrook common share. Under the increased terms, the maximum amount of LaSalle shares eligible to receive cash is increased from 20% to 30% of the outstanding shares, a 50% increase, in the aggregate subject to pro rata cutbacks. The $37.80 cash option is $4.30 per share, or 13%, higher than the Blackstone cash merger price of $33.50 per share, and represents a strong anchor providing increased downside protection. Based on the closing price per Pebblebrook common share of $39.17 on August 21, 2018, and assuming 30% of the LaSalle common shares receive cash in lieu of Pebblebrook common shares, the implied price of the increased Pebblebrook offer is $36.57, or 9.2%, above the Blackstone take-under price of $33.50. With the increased cash offering, Pebblebrook common shares would have to decline by $4.76, or 12.2%, from today's closing price, in order for the premium of Pebblebrook's offer to be eliminated. The Pebblebrook proposal takes into account the $112 million cost of the termination fee LaSalle agreed to pay to Blackstone.

Outperform
LaSalle Hotel math suggests more upside possible, says Baird
Baird analyst Michael Bellasario said his upgrade thesis on LaSalle Hotel (LHO) is unfolding despite its current less attractive risk/reward. He believes the recent unsolicited offer for the company from Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (PEB) will provide a floor for the share price, but other M&A catalysts could provide additional upside. Bellasario reiterated his Outperform rating and raised his price target to $30 from $28 on LaSalle Hotel shares.

LaSalle Hotel price target raised to $32 from $24 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst C. Patrick Scholes raised his price target on LaSalle Hotel to $32 after its Q1 earnings beat and also raised his FY18 EBITDA target to $306M from $295M. Scholes believes that there is now a 70% chance that the REIT is bought out by Pebblebrook (PEB) or another buyer given the "positive tone" around its quarter. The analyst keeps his Hold rating however given the valuation on LaSalle Hotel.

Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Cyprys raised his price target on Blackstone to $42 from $40, telling investors in a research note that he is "increasingly bullish" on the Overweight-rated stock, as he sees asset gathering momentum picking up, which should raise "sticky" management fee-related earnings by 35% over the next six quarters. Blackstone is holding an Investor Day on September 21, its first since 2014, which he views as a catalyst for greater clarity on growth opportunities.
