Operating and Leasing Activity

At June 30, 2014, KRC’s stabilized portfolio encompassed approximately 13.2 million square feet of office space located in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, the San Francisco Bay Area and greater Seattle. The portfolio was 93.6% occupied at June 30, 2014, compared to 92.4% at March 31, 2014 and 90.7% at June 30, 2013. During the second quarter, the company signed new or renewing leases on 429,331 square feet of space in the stabilized portfolio. At June 30, 2014, the company’s stabilized portfolio was 95.7% leased.

Real Estate Investment Activity

During the second quarter, KRC acquired a 3.1 acre land parcel in the Mission Bay submarket of San Francisco for approximately $95 million. The site is fully entitled for the development of a 680,000 gross square-foot office project. The company expects to invest approximately $450 million, including the land purchase, to develop a LEED-Gold designed project, with construction on the first of two phases expected to begin by mid 2015.

The company made two dispositions in the second quarter, selling two vacant office buildings located in the University Towne Center submarket of San Diego for gross proceeds of approximately $29.5 million, and completing the previously disclosed sale of a land parcel in the Rancho Bernardo submarket of San Diego for gross proceeds of approximately $33.1 million.

During the quarter, KRC continued construction on six development projects aggregating approximately 2.5 million square feet, with 71% of the office space pre-leased. Four of the six projects are 100% pre-leased. The company estimates its total investment in these six projects will be approximately $1.5 billion. Scheduled completion dates range from 2014 to 2016.

Financing Activity

In June 2014, KRC amended the terms of its unsecured credit facility and $150 million term loan, extending the maturity of both to July 2019 and increasing the size of the unsecured credit facility to $600 million. The unsecured credit facility now bears interest at LIBOR plus 1.25% and includes a 25 basis point facility fee. The term loan facility now bears interest at LIBOR plus 1.40%.

The company also raised $22.6 million of equity during the second quarter through its at-the-market stock offering program.

In June and July, Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s, respectively, affirmed the company’s senior unsecured debt rating and revised the outlook to positive from stable.

Management Comments

We calculate FFO in accordance with the White Paper on FFO approved by the Board of Governors of NAREIT. The White Paper defines FFO as net income or loss calculated in accordance with GAAP, excluding extraordinary items, as defined by GAAP, gains and losses from sales of depreciable real estate and impairment write-downs associated with depreciable real estate, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs and depreciation of non-real estate assets) and after adjustment for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Our calculation of FFO includes the amortization of deferred revenue related to tenant-funded tenant improvements and excludes the depreciation of the related tenant improvement assets.

 
We believe that FFO is a useful supplemental measure of our operating performance. The exclusion from FFO of gains and losses from the sale of operating real estate assets allows investors and analysts to readily identify the operating results of the assets that form the core of our activity and assists in comparing those operating results between periods. Also, because FFO is generally recognized as the industry standard for reporting the operations of REITs, it facilitates comparisons of operating performance to other REITs. However, other REITs may use different methodologies to calculate FFO, and accordingly, our FFO may not be comparable to all other REITs.
 

Implicit in historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP is the assumption that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors and analysts have considered presentations of operating results for real estate companies using historical cost accounting alone to be insufficient. Because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, we believe that FFO along with the required GAAP presentations provides a more complete measurement of our performance relative to our competitors and a more appropriate basis on which to make decisions involving operating, financing and investing activities than the required GAAP presentations alone would provide.

 

However, FFO should not be viewed as an alternative measure of our operating performance because it does not reflect either depreciation and amortization costs or the level of capital expenditures and leasing costs necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties, which are significant economic costs and could materially impact our results from operations.

 
(2) FFO includes amortization of deferred revenue related to tenant-funded tenant improvements of $2.7 million and $2.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, and $5.0 million and $5.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.
 
(3) Reported amounts are attributable to common stockholders and common unitholders.
