INVESTMENTS ACTIVITY

In 2013, the Company completed $734.9 million of transactional activity, including the Company’s pro-rata share of unconsolidated joint ventures, as follows:

  • Completed $442.6 million of asset sales and earnouts, of which $361.1 million closed in the fourth quarter, including the sale of the Company’s 20% interest in eight properties to RioCan for $95.5 million; and
  • Completed $292.3 million of acquisitions, all of which closed in the fourth quarter, including the purchase of Pelham Manor Shopping Plaza and Fordham Place in New York City for $192.4 million, and the purchase of RioCan’s 80% interest in five properties for $99.9 million.

“We are pleased to announce the successful achievement of our 2013 acquisition and disposition goals,” commented Shane Garrison, executive vice president, chief operating officer and chief investment officer. “Our execution over the last two years has demonstrated our long range vision for the portfolio and our commitment to prudent and disciplined capital allocation.”

BALANCE SHEET AND CAPITAL MARKETS ACTIVITY

As of December 31, 2013, the Company had $2.3 billion of consolidated indebtedness, which resulted in a net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio of 5.3x, down from 6.6x as of December 31, 2012, or a net debt and preferred stock to adjusted EBITDA ratio of 5.7x, down from 7.0x as of December 31, 2012. Consolidated indebtedness, as of December 31, 2013, had a weighted average contractual interest rate of 4.97% and a weighted average maturity of 4.7 years.

In 2013, the Company executed on significant capital markets initiatives, including the following:

  • Extinguished $570.6 million of mortgage and mezzanine loans, excluding amortization, with a weighted average contractual interest rate of 7.54%, of which $99.7 million was repaid in the fourth quarter, with a weighted average contractual interest rate of 5.25%;
  • Closed on a $1.0 billion amended and restated unsecured credit facility in May 2013, increasing total borrowing capacity by $350.0 million, extending the maturity date by over two years and decreasing the interest rate by approximately 50 basis points on average, depending on leverage;
  • Issued approximately 5.5 million shares under the Company’s at-the-market equity program of common stock at an average share price of $15.29, generating net proceeds of $83.5 million, all of which occurred during the first half of the year; and
  • Converted the remaining shares of Class B common stock into shares of Class A common stock, and as a result, all shares of the Company’s common stock are tradable.

Subsequent to year end, Moody’s Investors Service assigned a (P)Baa3 rating with a stable outlook to the Company’s senior unsecured shelf registration. Moody’s indicated in their announcement that the investment grade rating reflects RPAI’s conservative capital structure and strong credit metrics including solid fixed charge coverage and low overall leverage.

“The execution of our balance sheet efforts over the last year, including the recast of our unsecured credit facility, our opportunistic use of the at-the-market equity program and the early repayment of significant amounts of high cost debt, positioned us well for an investment grade credit rating,” stated Angela Aman, executive vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer. “This is an important achievement for RPAI, which enhances our ability to access additional sources of capital in order to continue to execute on our strategic objectives. We look forward to building on this progress as we move through 2014.”

GUIDANCE

The Company expects to generate Operating FFO per share of $0.96 - $1.00 in 2014, as detailed below:

  • Generate same store NOI growth of 2.0% - 3.0%;
  • Acquire $300 - $350 million of strategic assets;

We assume no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

As defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), an industry trade group, FFO means net income (loss) computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of depreciable investment properties, plus depreciation and amortization and impairment charges on depreciable investment properties, including amounts from continuing and discontinued operations, as well as adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures in which the Company holds an interest. The Company has adopted the NAREIT definition in its computation of FFO and believes that FFO, which is a non-GAAP performance measure, provides an additional and useful means to assess the operating performance of REITs. The Company believes that, subject to the following limitations, FFO provides a basis for comparing the Company’s performance and operations to those of other REITs. Depreciation and amortization related to investment properties for purposes of calculating FFO includes a portion of loss on lease terminations encompassing the write-off of tenant-related assets, including tenant improvements and in-place lease values, as a result of early lease terminations.

The Company also reports Operating FFO, which is defined as FFO excluding the impact to earnings from the early extinguishment of debt and other items as denoted within the calculation. Management considers Operating FFO a meaningful, additional measure of operating performance primarily because it excludes the effects of transactions and other events which management does not consider representative of the operating results of the Company’s core business platform. Neither FFO nor Operating FFO represent alternatives to "Net Income" as an indicator of the Company’s performance, and "Cash Flows from Operating Activities" as determined by GAAP as a measure of the Company’s capacity to fund cash needs, including the payment of dividends. Further, comparison of the Company’s presentation of Operating FFO to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in definition and application by such REITs.

The Company also reports same store NOI. The Company defines NOI as operating revenues (rental income, tenant recovery income, other property income, excluding straight-line rental income, amortization of lease inducements, amortization of acquired above and below market lease intangibles and lease termination fee income) less property operating expenses (real estate tax expense and property operating expense, excluding straight-line ground rent expense, amortization of acquired ground lease intangible liability, straight-line bad debt expense and lease termination fee expense). Same Store NOI for the year ended December 31, 2013 represents NOI from our same store portfolio consisting of 223 operating properties acquired or placed in service prior to January 1, 2012, excluding one operating property that was classified as held for sale as of December 31, 2013, which is accounted for within discontinued operations. Same Store NOI for the three months ended December 31, 2013 represents NOI from our same store portfolio consisting of 224 operating properties acquired or placed in service prior to October 1, 2012, excluding one operating property that was classified as held for sale as of December 31, 2013. NOI from Other Investment Properties for the year ended December 31, 2013 represents NOI primarily from properties acquired in 2013, our development properties and one former development property that was not classified within our operating property portfolio for both periods presented. NOI from Other Investment Properties for the three months ended December 31, 2013 represents NOI primarily from properties acquired in 2013 and our development properties. NOI consists of the sum of Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties. We believe that NOI, Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties are useful measures of our operating performance. Other REITs may use different methodologies for calculating these metrics, and accordingly, our NOI metrics may not be comparable to other REITs. We believe that these metrics provide an operating perspective not immediately apparent from GAAP operating income or net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders. We use these metrics to evaluate our performance on a property-by-property basis because these measures allow management to evaluate the impact that factors such as lease structure, lease rates and tenant base, which vary by property, have on our operating results. However, these measures should only be used as an alternative measure of our financial performance.

Adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing performance. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is useful because it allows investors and management to evaluate and compare our performance from period to period in a meaningful and consistent manner in addition to standard financial measurements under GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders, as an indicator of operating performance or any measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. Our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may be different from the calculation used by other companies and, accordingly, comparability may be limited.

Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA represents (i) our total debt less cash and cash equivalents divided by (ii) Adjusted EBITDA for the prior three months, annualized. We believe that this ratio is useful because it provides investors with information regarding total debt net of cash and cash equivalents, which could be used to repay debt, compared to our performance as measured using Adjusted EBITDA.

Net Debt and Preferred Stock to Adjusted EBITDA represents (i) our total debt, plus preferred stock, less cash and cash equivalents divided by (ii) Adjusted EBITDA for the prior three months, annualized. We believe that this ratio is useful because it provides investors with information regarding total debt and preferred stock, net of cash and cash equivalents, which could be used to repay debt, compared to our performance as measured using Adjusted EBITDA.
