- Recurring FFO per Share Increases 9.5% for the Quarter and 7.0% Year to Date -

- Total Portfolio Leased Occupancy Rises to 95.8%, Up 140 Basis Points Over One Year Ago -

OAK BROOK, Ill.--()--Inland Real Estate Corporation (NYSE: IRC), a publicly traded real estate investment trust that owns and operates high-quality, necessity and value-based retail centers primarily in select markets within the Central United States, today announced financial and operational results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Reported Recurring FFO (defined as FFO adjusted for the impact of lease termination income, certain gains and non-cash impairment charges of non-depreciable real estate, net of taxes) per weighted average common share (basic and diluted) of $0.23 for the three months ended June 30, 2014, representing an increase of 9.5% over the second quarter of 2013.
  • Reported Recurring FFO per weighted average common share (basic and diluted) of $0.46 for the six months ended June 30, 2014, representing an increase of 7.0%, compared to the first six months of 2013.
  • Total portfolio leased occupancy was 95.8% and financial occupancy was 94.3% at June 30, 2014, representing increases of 140 basis points and 250 basis points, respectively, over one year ago.
  • Same-store net operating income (NOI) for the consolidated portfolio excluding lease termination income increased 0.3% for the quarter and 1.1% for the first six months of 2014, over the comparable periods in 2013. Company continues to expect an increase in consolidated same store NOI for full year 2014 to range from 2% to 4%.
  • For the quarter, average base rent for new and renewal leases signed in the total portfolio increased by 14.8% and 10.8%, respectively, over expiring average rents.
  • Company’s joint venture with PGGM acquired Newport Pavilion Phase I located in the Cincinnati MSA for $43.3 million, subject to future earnout payments; Company sold four non-core properties for a total sale price of $42.1 million, recording a net gain on sale of $10.0 million.
  • Entered into amended and restated unsecured credit facilities totaling $475 million with an expanded lending group, increase in total capacity, extended terms, and improved pricing, subsequent to the close of the quarter.

“The acceleration we are experiencing in recurring FFO per share is a direct result of proactive leasing and property management strategies we have been executing, which produced substantial year-over-year gains in occupancy and double-digit increases in average base rent spreads for new and renewal leases,” said Mark Zalatoris, president and chief executive officer of Inland Real Estate Corporation. “At this mid-year point, we are on track to meet the annual goals we have set for portfolio performance. We continue to improve the tenant and geographic diversification of our platform by recycling proceeds from non-core dispositions into acquisitions of premier retail properties, and expect to capture additional benefit from our leasing and asset repositioning initiatives in future quarters. With regard to our balance sheet objectives, we further improved our access to and lowered our cost of capital with the recast and expansion of our unsecured credit facilities.”

Financial Results for the Quarter

FFO attributable to common stockholders was $22.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to $25.9 million for the second quarter of 2013. On a per share basis, FFO was $0.23 (basic and diluted) for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $0.28 (basic and diluted) for the same period of 2013.

Recurring FFO (defined as FFO adjusted for the impact of lease termination income, certain gains and non-cash impairment charges of non-depreciable real estate, net of taxes) was $22.9 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $19.5 million for the prior year quarter. On a per share basis, Recurring FFO was $0.23 (basic and diluted) for the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to $0.21 for the three months ended June 30, 2013. Recurring FFO per share rose 9.5% year over year primarily due to higher property net operating income from the consolidated portfolio and lower income tax expense, partially offset by higher interest and general and administrative expenses.

Net income attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $10.4 million, compared to $101.7 million for the second quarter of 2013. On a per common share basis, net income attributable to common stockholders (basic and diluted) was $0.10 for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $1.10 (basic) and $1.09 (diluted) for the prior year quarter. Net income decreased year over year primarily due to substantially lower gains from the change in control of investment properties related to the 2013 consolidation of NYSTRS joint venture assets and from the settlement of receivables, as well as lower lease termination income from discontinued operations. The decrease in net income was partially offset by higher gains on sale of investment properties recorded during the second quarter of 2014.

Financial Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2014

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, FFO attributable to common stockholders was $46.0 million, compared to $45.1 million for the same period in 2013. On a per share basis, FFO for the first six months of 2014 was $0.46 (basic and diluted), compared to $0.50 (basic) and $0.49 (diluted) for the six months ended June 30, 2013.

Recurring FFO was $46.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to $39.3 million for the prior year period. On a per share basis, Recurring FFO was $0.46 (basic and diluted) for the first six months of 2014, compared to $0.43 (basic and diluted) for the same period of 2013. Recurring FFO per share for the six-month period increased 7.0% year over year due to the same items impacting the three-month period.

Net income attributable to common stockholders for the six months ended June 30, 2014, was $23.6 million, compared to $106.4 million for the same period in 2013. On a per share basis, net income attributable to common stockholder was $0.24 (basic and diluted), compared to $1.17 (basic) and $1.16 (diluted) for the same period of 2013. Net income for the period decreased year over year due to the same items that impacted net income for the quarter.

Reconciliations of FFO and Recurring FFO to net income attributable to common stockholders, calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, as well as FFO and Recurring FFO per share to net income attributable to common stockholders per share, are provided at the end of this news release.

Portfolio Performance

For the quarter, total portfolio same-store NOI was $26.8 million and consolidated same-store NOI was $20.7 million, representing increases of 0.5% and 0.3%, respectively, over the comparable period in 2013. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, total portfolio same-store NOI was $53.5 million and consolidated same-store NOI was $41.3 million, representing increases of 1.8% and 1.1%, respectively, over the comparable prior year period. Same-store NOI for the total and consolidated portfolios was in line with Company expectations, as income from certain new leases is expected to be recorded in the second half of the year. The Company's guidance for 2014 incorporates assumptions for an increase in consolidated same-store NOI to range from 2% to 4%.

Same-store financial occupancy was 94.4% for the total portfolio and 93.2% for the consolidated portfolio as of June 30, 2014, representing increases of 220 basis points and 260 basis points, respectively, over one year ago.

The Company evaluates its overall portfolio by analyzing the operating performance of properties that have been owned and operated for the same three and six-month periods during each year. A total of 81 of the Company's investment properties within the consolidated portfolio and 105 properties within the total portfolio satisfied this criterion during these periods and are referred to as "same-store" properties. Same-store NOI is a supplemental non-GAAP measure used to monitor the performance of the Company's investment properties.

A reconciliation of consolidated same-store NOI to net income attributable to common stockholders, calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, is provided at the end of this news release.

Leasing

For the quarter, the Company signed 76 leases within the total portfolio aggregating 529,157 square feet of gross leasable area (GLA). Total leases executed included:

  • Fifty-three renewal leases comprising 421,541 square feet, with an average rental rate of $12.11 per square foot, representing an increase of 10.8% over the average expiring rent;
  • Ten new leases comprising 70,137 square feet, with an average rental rate of $13.35 per square foot, representing an increase of 14.8% over the expiring rent; and
  • Thirteen non-comparable leases comprising 37,479 square feet, with an average rental rate of $16.54 per square foot. The company defines non-comparable leases as leases signed for expansion square footage or for space in which there was no former tenant in place for a period of twelve months or more.

On a blended basis, the 63 new and renewal leases executed during the quarter had an average rental rate of $12.28 per square foot, representing an increase of 11.4% over the average expiring rent. The calculations of former and new average base rents are adjusted for rent abatements on the included leases.

For the total portfolio as of June 30, 2014, leased occupancy was 95.8% and financial occupancy was 94.3%, representing gains of 140 basis points and 250 basis points, respectively, over one year ago. Leased occupancy is defined as the percentage of total gross leasable area for which there is a signed lease regardless of whether the tenant is currently obligated to pay rent under their lease agreement. Financial occupancy is defined as the percentage of total gross leasable area for which a tenant is obligated to pay rent under the terms of the lease agreement, regardless of the actual use or occupation by that tenant of the area being leased, and excludes tenants in abatement periods.

EBITDA, Balance Sheet, Liquidity and Market Value

The Company reported Recurring EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), which is EBITDA adjusted for the impact of lease termination income, certain gains and non-cash impairment charges of non-depreciable real estate, of $36.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to $34.6 million for the second quarter of 2013. Recurring EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2014, was $72.7 million, compared to $68.1 million for the same period in 2013.

Definitions and reconciliations of EBITDA and Recurring EBITDA to net income attributable to Inland Real Estate Corporation are provided at the end of this news release.

Recurring EBITDA coverage of interest expense was 3.3 times for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to 3.1 times for the second quarter of 2013. The Company has provided EBITDA and related non-GAAP coverage ratios because it believes EBITDA and the related ratios provide useful supplemental measures in evaluating the Company's operating performance since expenses that may not be indicative of operating performance are excluded.

After the close of the quarter, the Company closed amended and restated unsecured credit facilities totaling $475 million with an expanded lending group that now includes eight banks. The amended agreement provides an increase of $115 million in total capacity; reduces applicable interest rate spreads and the capitalization rate used to determine asset value for purposes of covenant compliance under these facilities; and extends the term of the $275 million revolving credit facility and $200 million term loan to 2018 and 2019, respectively, with an option to further extend the revolver by 12 months, among other things.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had an equity market capitalization (common shares) of $1.1 billion, outstanding preferred stock of $110.0 million (at face value), and total debt outstanding of $1.1 billion (including the pro-rata share of debt in unconsolidated joint ventures and full face value of outstanding 5.0% convertible senior notes, due 2029) for a total market capitalization of approximately $2.2 billion. The Company's debt-to-total market capitalization was 47.2% as of June 30, 2014. Approximately 60.2% of total debt bears interest at fixed rates. As of June 30, 2014, the weighted average interest rate on the fixed rate debt was 5.17% and the overall weighted average interest rate, including variable rate debt, was 3.95%.

Dispositions and Acquisitions

During the quarter, the Company sold four properties for a total price of $42.1 million and recorded a net gain on sale of $10.0 million. The dispositions included a single-user property leased to Disney in Celebration, Fla., for $25.7 million; Lake Park shopping center in Michigan City, Ind., for $3.9 million; Winfield Pointe Center, an unanchored neighborhood center in Winfield, Ill., for $2.5 million; and the Gateway Square shopping center in Hinsdale, Ill., for $10.0 million.

The Company is executing a capital recycling program whereby proceeds from the sale of non-core assets are used to acquire retail properties that further increase the value, diversification and growth potential of the portfolio.

Joint Venture Activity

In June the Company’s joint venture with PGGM purchased Newport Pavilion Phase 1 in Newport, Ky., a high-barrier-to-entry infill market in the Cincinnati metropolitan area, for $43.3 million in cash, subject to future earnout payments. Newport Pavilion Phase I encompasses 222,300 square feet including ground leases, which is 98% leased to Kroger Marketplace, Michaels, PetSmart, Ulta, Famous Footwear, and others. The center is shadow-anchored by a separately-owned 134,500-square-foot Target store.

Distributions

In April, May, June and July of 2014, the Company paid a monthly cash dividend to Preferred Stockholders of $0.169271 per share on the outstanding shares of its 8.125% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock. In addition, the Company declared a cash dividend of $0.169271 per share on the outstanding shares of its Preferred Stock, payable on August 15, 2014, to Preferred Stockholders of record at the close of business on August 1, 2014.

In April, May, June and July of 2014, the Company paid monthly cash distributions to Common Stockholders of $0.0475 per common share. The Company also declared a cash distribution of $0.0475 per common share, payable on August 18, 2014, to common stockholders of record at the close of business on July 31, 2014.

Guidance

For fiscal year 2014, the Company continues to expect Recurring FFO per common share (basic and diluted) to range from $0.93 to $0.97. The Company's guidance incorporates assumptions for an increase in consolidated same-store NOI to range from 2% to 4%, and consolidated same-store financial occupancy at year-end 2014 to range from 91% to 92%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We consider FFO a widely accepted and appropriate measure of performance for a REIT. FFO provides a supplemental measure to compare our performance and operations to other REITs. Due to certain unique operating characteristics of real estate companies, NAREIT has promulgated a standard known as FFO, which it believes more accurately reflects the operating performance of a REIT such as ours. As defined by NAREIT, FFO means net income computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of operating property, plus depreciation and amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated entities in which the REIT holds an interest. In addition, NAREIT has further clarified the FFO definition to add-back impairment write-downs of depreciable real estate or of investments in unconsolidated entities that are driven by measurable decreases in the fair value of depreciable real estate. Under U.S. GAAP, impairment charges reduce net income. While impairment charges are added back in the calculation of FFO, we caution that because impairments to the value of any property are typically based on reductions in estimated future undiscounted cash flows compared to current carrying value, declines in the undiscounted cash flows which led to the impairment charges reflect declines in property operating performance that may be permanent. We have adopted the NAREIT definition for computing FFO. Recurring FFO includes adjustments to FFO for the impact of lease termination income, certain gains and non-cash impairment charges of non-depreciable real estate, net of taxes recorded in comparable periods, in order to present the performance of our core portfolio operations. Management uses the calculation of FFO and Recurring FFO for several reasons. Recurring FFO per weighted average common share outstanding is used in the employment agreements we have with our executives to determine a portion of incentive compensation payable to them. Additionally, we use FFO and Recurring FFO to compare our performance to that of other REITs in our peer group. The calculation of FFO and Recurring FFO may vary from entity to entity since capitalization and expense policies tend to vary from entity to entity. Items that are capitalized do not impact FFO and Recurring FFO whereas items that are expensed reduce FFO and Recurring FFO. Consequently, our presentation of FFO and Recurring FFO may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures presented by other REITs. FFO and Recurring FFO do not represent cash flows from operations as defined by U.S. GAAP, are not indicative of cash available to fund cash flow needs and liquidity, including our ability to pay distributions, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, for purposes of evaluating our operating performance.

Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (unaudited)

(in thousands, except per share data)

 

EBITDA is defined as earnings (losses) from operations excluding: (1) interest expense; (2) income tax benefit or expenses; (3) depreciation and amortization expense; and (4) gains (loss) on non-operating property. We believe EBITDA is useful to us and to an investor as a supplemental measure in evaluating our financial performance because it excludes expenses that we believe may not be indicative of our operating performance. By excluding interest expense, EBITDA measures our financial performance regardless of how we finance our operations and capital structure. By excluding depreciation and amortization expense, we believe we can more accurately assess the performance of our portfolio. Because EBITDA is calculated before recurring cash charges such as interest expense and taxes and is not adjusted for capital expenditures or other recurring cash requirements, it does not reflect the amount of capital needed to maintain our properties nor does it reflect trends in interest costs due to changes in interest rates or increases in borrowing. EBITDA should be considered only as a supplement to net earnings and may be calculated differently by other equity REITs.

We believe EBITDA is an important non-GAAP measure. We utilize EBITDA to calculate our interest expense coverage ratio, which equals EBITDA divided by total interest expense. We believe that using EBITDA, which excludes the effect of non-operating expenses and non-cash charges, all of which are based on historical cost and may be of limited significance in evaluating current performance, facilitates comparison of core operating profitability between periods and between REITs, particularly in light of the use of EBITDA by a seemingly large number of REITs in their reports on Forms 10-Q and 10-K. We believe that investors should consider EBITDA in conjunction with net income and the other required U.S. GAAP measures of our performance to improve their understanding of our operating results. Recurring EBITDA includes adjustments to EBITDA for the impact of least termination income and non-cash impairment charges in comparable periods in order to present the performance of our core portfolio operations.

Same Store Net Operating Income (unaudited)

(in thousands, except per share data)

 

The following schedule presents same store net operating income, for our consolidated portfolio, which is the net operating income of properties owned in both the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, along with other investment properties' net operating income. Same store net operating income is considered a non-GAAP financial measure because it does not include straight-line rental income, amortization of lease intangibles, lease termination income, interest, depreciation, amortization and bad debt expense. We provide same store net operating income as another metric to compare the results of property operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013. We also provide a reconciliation of these amounts to the most comparable GAAP measure, net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders.

Pro Rata Consolidated Information (unaudited)

(in thousands, except per share data)

 

These schedules present certain Non-GAAP pro-rata consolidated information as of and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014. These schedules are considered Non-GAAP because they include financial information related to consolidated joint ventures with an adjustment for the portion related to noncontrolling interests and unconsolidated joint ventures accounted for under the equity method of accounting. The Company provides the pro rata amounts of all properties owned through joint ventures to better compare our overall performance and operating metrics to those of other REITs in our peer group. The Company believes this Non-GAAP information provides supplementary information that is both useful to and has been requested by investors and analysts. Investors should not consider Non-GAAP information as a substitute for, or as superior to, U.S. GAAP information. Rather, Non-GAAP information may provide useful information in addition to information presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
