EdR Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

- Core FFO per Share Up 15% -

MEMPHIS, Tenn.--()--EdR (NYSE:EDR), one of the nation’s largest developers, owners and managers of collegiate housing, today announced results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Company Highlights

  • Core funds from operations (“Core FFO”) was $17.3 million, or $0.15 per share/unit for the second quarter, compared to $14.5 million, or $0.13 per share/unit in the prior year, an increase of 15% on a per share basis;
  • Same-community net operating income ("NOI") improved 2.6% for the quarter on a 2.5% growth in revenue partially offset by a 2.4% increase in operating expenses;
  • Preleasing for the 2014-2015 lease term is 360 basis points ahead of last year with the same-community portfolio 90.9% preleased. The same-community portfolio is projected to open the 2014-2015 lease term with an increase in revenue ranging from 3% to 4%, comprised of a 1% to 2% increase in occupancy and an approximate 2% growth in net rental rates;
  • Completed an over-subscribed and upsized follow-on equity offering raising $239.4 million in net proceeds that were used to reduce the balance on the Company's revolving credit facility and provide financing for:
    • Two new developments to be delivered summer 2015 for $90.0 million, adjacent to the University of Louisville and the University of Connecticut;
    • The pending acquisition of The District on Apache, a 900-bed community adjacent to Arizona State University that is expected to close in September 2014 for approximately $92.0 million;
  • Received $3.0 million guarantee fee and complete repayment of $18.0 million mezzanine investment related to the participating development at Johns Hopkins on July 1st;
  • In July, sold two communities for $29.9 million; and
  • Updated full year Core FFO guidance of $0.61 - $0.64 per share/unit, representing an 11% to 16% increase over 2013.

“We achieved another quarter of double-digit Core FFO per share growth,” commented Randy Churchey, EdR’s president and chief executive officer. “Furthermore, with a record 6,000 beds opening this summer in twelve buildings at eight universities, we are well positioned for the future. Our pipeline of opportunities at major universities remains robust and we are excited about our prospects as we move ahead."

Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Common Stockholders

Net income attributable to common stockholders for the quarter was a loss of $8.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared to net income of $3.8 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the prior year. The Company recognized a $9.9 million impairment charge in June of 2014 related to pending dispositions and recognized a gain on sale of assets of $3.9 million in the second quarter of 2013. Excluding these gains and loss on asset transactions, net income increased $1.2 million for the quarter. The main contributors to this increase were a $5.8 million increase in community net operating income (NOI) partially offset by a $2.9 million increase in depreciation and a $1.2 million increase in interest and other nonoperating expenses.

Core Funds From Operations

Core FFO for the quarter was $17.3 million, as compared to $14.5 million in the prior year, an increase of 18.8%. Core FFO per share/unit for the quarter increased 15.4% to $0.15. The improvement in Core FFO mainly reflects the increase in operating profits from new communities offset by higher interest expense in 2014.

A reconciliation of funds from operations (“FFO”) and Core FFO to net income is included with the financial tables accompanying this release.

Same-Community Results

Net operating income was $18.7 million for the quarter, an increase of 2.6%, or $0.5 million, from the prior year. Revenue for the quarter was up 2.5% as compared to the prior year with a 1.9% increase in rental rates, a 0.4% improvement in occupancy and a 0.2% increase in other income. Operating expenses for the quarter increased $0.3 million, or 2.4%, mainly due to a $0.3 million increase in real estate taxes. In total, all other operating expenses increased approximately 40 basis points for the quarter.

"I am proud of our team's expense controls in 2014," stated Christine Richards, EdR's senior vice president and chief operating officer. "We have remained focused on controlling direct operating expenses while maintaining our strong leasing velocity for the fall."

2014-2015 Preleasing

Preleasing for the same-community portfolio is currently 360 basis points ahead of prior year with 90.9% of the beds preleased for the fall. Based on current leasing velocity and market conditions, the same-community portfolio is projected to open the 2014-2015 lease term with revenue growth ranging from 3% to 4%, comprised of a 1% to 2% increase in occupancy and an approximate 2% growth in average net rental rates.

University of Kentucky ("UK") Campus Housing Revitalization Plan

Construction on the next phase of the UK campus housing revitalization plan, which includes five buildings with 2,381 beds at a total project cost of $138.0 million, is proceeding as planned for opening next month. The 2,982 beds that will be open this fall, which include the 601 beds delivered in 2013, are 180% applied and 100% leased for this fall.

Construction on the 2015 deliveries, which include 1,610 beds for a total cost of $101.2 million, and the 2016 deliveries, which include 1,141 beds for a total cost of $83.9 million, are all underway and proceeding as planned. To date, under this long-term relationship with UK, a total of 5,733 beds in live learn communities have been approved for a total cost approaching $350.0 million.

Investment Activity

Construction is on schedule for the 2014 and 2015 development deliveries at the universities of Colorado, Connecticut, Minnesota and Georgia as well as at Duke University. The 2014 development deliveries, including the pre-sale at Florida International University, are all on schedule to open next month and in total have increased the Company's gross assets by 19%.

On July 1st, the third-party owners of our development at Johns Hopkins University successfully closed on permanent financing for the community. The proceeds from the refinancing were used to repay in-full their construction loan as well as the $18.0 million mezzanine investment made by EdR. At the time of the refinancing, the Company also received its $3.0 million fee for guaranteeing the original construction loan.

The Company entered into agreements to purchase The District on Apache - a collegiate housing community serving Arizona State University (ASU) - for approximately $92.0 million. The 900-bed community, within walking distance of the ASU Tempe campus, opened in August 2013 and is 100% occupied. The community is currently 98% preleased for this fall. The acquisition is anticipated to close in September and has a targeted first-year, unleveraged economic yield of 6.25%.

In June, the Company began construction on the fourth phase of its highly successful development pedestrian to the University of Connecticut. Scheduled to open summer of 2015, the community will add 390 beds in 204 units for a total cost of $45.0 million. This phase will be adjacent to the first three phases which total 619 beds in 414 units that are 100% pre-leased for the 2014-2015 lease term.

The Company executed joint venture agreements in June with Landmark Properties to develop, own and manage a $45.0 million collegiate community adjacent to the University of Louisville. This is the first cottage-style community that is adjacent to a major university campus. EdR will be 75% owner and will manage the community through lease-up and after its summer 2015 opening.

In July, the Company completed the previously announced sales of a 480-bed community built in 2003 that is approximately two miles from the University of South Carolina campus and a 576-bed community built in 1999 that is about a mile from the core of Auburn University’s campus. The $29.9 million of net proceeds from these dispositions were used to pay-off approximately $16.7 million of mortgage debt, with an average interest rate of 4.9%, and to pay down the Company's unsecured revolving credit facility. In the third quarter the Company will recognize an approximate gain of $8 million related to these sales.

The Company is in the process of marketing four additional communities for sale. Based on current estimates, the Company would incur losses on the sale of two of the communities and gains on the sale of the other two. Generally accepted accounting principles require an impairment charge be recognized when the carrying value of an asset is determined to be impaired while gains are not recognized until the time of sale. As such, the Company recorded a non-cash impairment charge of $9.9 million in the second quarter related to two of the marketed communities. The Company anticipates recording a gain on the sale of the other two communities if and when the sales close; however, there is no guarantee that all or any of these communities will ultimately be sold.

Capital Structure

The Company completed a follow-on equity offering in June, selling 24.5 million shares including the exercise of the underwriters' option to purchase additional shares. The offering was upsized due to overwhelming investor demand, raising $239.4 million in net proceeds that were used to pay down the Company's unsecured revolving credit facility, reducing our debt to gross assets from 43.4% to 32.5%. The proceeds have effectively prefunded the new acquisition and developments that were announced as part of the offering.

At June 30, 2014, the Company had cash and cash equivalents totaling $11.2 million and going forward has$400 million of availability on its unsecured revolving credit facility. The Company's debt to gross assets was 32.5%, its net debt to EBITDA - adjusted was 5.6x, and its interest coverage ratio was 4.4x. The Company has the financial capacity through operating cash flow and availability under its revolving credit facility to fund all of its announced acquisitions and developments.

Earnings Guidance and Outlook

The Company is increasing its post follow-on equity offering and related transactions low- and high-end Core FFO guidance by 7% and 2%, respectively, to a range of $0.61 to $0.64 per share/unit, which represents an 11% to 16% growth rate over 2013. This guidance increase is mainly attributable to (1) better than expected net operating income from all communities derived from our successful leasing efforts for the 2014/2015 leasing cycle, and (2) the successful refinancing of the Johns Hopkins development (collection of the $3 million debt guarantee fee partially offset by the foregone interest income for the second half of 2014 due to the repayment of our $18 million mezzanine investment), which was not included in the previous low-end guidance range.

The June follow-on equity offering and related transactions, which included two asset sales, one pending acquisition and deleveraging the balance sheet, reduced the Company's original Core FFO per share/unit guidance by $0.05 to a range of $0.57 to $0.63.

Consistent with Company policy, guidance does not include the impact of any unannounced third-party development or management contracts, acquisitions including pre-sale agreements or purchase options, dispositions, ONE Plansm developments or capital transactions.

Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995

Statements about the Company’s business that are not historical facts are “forward-looking statements,” which relate to expectations, beliefs, projections, future plans and strategies, anticipated events or trends and similar expressions. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts” or “potential” or the negative of these words and phrases or similar words or phrases which are predictions of or indicate future events or trends and which do not relate solely to historical matters. Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations. You should not rely on forward-looking statements because the matters that they describe are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause the Company’s business, financial condition, liquidity, results of operations, Core FFO, FFO and prospects to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such statements. Such risks are set forth under the captions “Risk Factors,” “Forward-Looking Statements” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” (or similar captions) in EdR's most recent annual report on Form 10-K, and as described in EdR's other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made, and, except as otherwise may be required by law, the Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any guidance or other forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments, or otherwise, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Funds from Operations (FFO)

As defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, FFO represents net income (loss) (computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP")), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property and impairment write-downs of depreciable real estate plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures will be calculated to reflect FFO on the same basis. The Company presents FFO available to all stockholders and unitholders because management considers it to be an important supplemental measure of the Company’s operating performance, believes it assists in the comparison of the Company’s operating performance between periods to that of different REITs and believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting their operating results. As such, the Company also excludes the impact of noncontrolling interests, only as they relate to operating partnership units, in the calculation. FFO is intended to exclude GAAP historical cost depreciation and amortization of real estate and related assets, which assumes that the value of real estate diminishes ratably over time. Historically, however, real estate values have risen or fallen with market conditions. Because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization unique to real estate, gains and losses from property dispositions and extraordinary items, it provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, reflects the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, development activities and interest costs, providing perspective not immediately apparent from net income.

The Company also uses core funds from operations, or Core FFO, as an operating measure. Core FFO is defined as FFO adjusted to include the economic impact of revenue on participating projects for which recognition is deferred for GAAP purposes. The adjustment for this revenue is calculated on the same percentage of completion method used to recognize revenue on third-party development projects. Core FFO also includes adjustments to exclude the impact of straight-line adjustment for ground leases, gains/losses on extinguishment of debt, transaction costs related to acquisitions and reorganization or severance costs. The Company believes that these adjustments are appropriate in determining Core FFO as they are not indicative of the operating performance of the Company’s assets. In addition the Company believes that Core FFO is a useful supplemental measure for the investing community to use in comparing the Company to other REITs as most REITs provide some form of adjusted or modified FFO.

Net Operating Income (NOI)

The Company considers NOI to be a useful measure of its collegiate housing operating performance. The Company defines NOI as rental and other community-level revenues earned from our collegiate housing communities less community-level operating expenses, excluding management fees, depreciation, amortization, ground lease expense and impairment charges and including regional and other corporate costs of supporting the communities. Other REITs may use different methodologies for calculating NOI, and accordingly, the Company's NOI may not be comparable to other REITs. The Company believes that this measure provides an operating perspective not immediately apparent from GAAP operating income or net income. The Company uses NOI to evaluate performance on a community-by-community basis because it allows management to evaluate the impact that factors such as lease structure, lease rates and tenant base, which vary by property, have on the Company’s operating results. However, NOI should only be used as an alternative measure of the Company’s financial performance.

Adjusted Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (Adjusted EBITDA)

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income or loss excluding: (1) straight line adjustment for ground leases; (2) acquisition costs; (3) depreciation and amortization; (4) loss on impairment of collegiate housing assets; (5) gain on sale of collegiate housing assets; (6) interest expense; (7) other non-operating expense (income); (8) income tax expense (benefit); and (9) non-controlling interest. Management considers Adjusted EBITDA useful to an investor in evaluating and facilitating comparisons of the Company's operating performance between periods and between REITs by removing the impact of the Company's capital structure (primarily interest expense) and asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from our operating results. Adjusted EBITDA should only be used as an alternative measure of the Company's financial performance.

Net debt to EBITDA - adjusted is calculated to normalize the impact of non-producing construction debt. In the calculation, net debt is total debt less cash and excludes non-producing debt related to assets under development at time of calculation. EBITDA is Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA, which includes proforma adjustments to reflect all acquisitions and development assets that are opened as if such had occurred at the beginning of the 12 month period being presented.

Debt to Gross Assets

Debt to gross assets is defined as total debt, excluding the unamortized debt premium, divided by gross assets, or total assets excluding accumulated depreciation on real estate assets. We consider debt to gross assets useful to an investor in evaluating our leverage and in assessing our capital structure, because it excludes noncash items such as accumulated depreciation and provides a more accurate depiction of our capital structure. Debt to gross assets should only be used as an alternative measure of the Company's financial performance.

As the ground lease terms range from 40 to 99 years, the adjustment to straight-line these agreements becomes material to our operating results, distorting the economic results of the communities.

(3) FFO on participating developments represents the economic impact of interest and fees not recognized in net income due to the Company having a participating investment in the third-party development. The adjustment for interest income is based on terms of the loan.

(4) FFO and Core FFO per weighted average share/unit were computed using the weighted average of all shares and operating partnership units outstanding, regardless of their dilutive impact.
