NEW YORK--()--Rouse Properties, Inc. (the "Company" or "Rouse") (NYSE:RSE) a national owner of regional enclosed malls, today announced consolidated results for the three months ended September 30, 2014.

"We are extremely pleased to complete another strong quarter in which we realized significant benefit from our operational and strategic initiatives," stated Andrew Silberfein, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our strong leasing momentum for the Operating Portfolio has improved our leased percentage to 91.3%, increased our initial rent spreads by 9.9% and raised sales to $321 per square foot. Furthermore, we acquired a controlling interest in another dominant, protected mall, bringing our total acquisition volume to more than $700 million since our formation, as we continue to expand and upgrade our portfolio."

Mr. Silberfein continued, "Additionally, we have executed a contract to sell Knollwood Mall upon completion of our redevelopment, demonstrating the value we are creating throughout our portfolio while recycling capital to reinvest in higher yielding growth opportunities. Looking ahead, we expect that the investments we have made across our platform, coupled with our substantial amount of signed but not yet open leases, should contribute meaningfully to our same store results for the fourth quarter and in 2015."

Operational and Financial Highlights Third Quarter 2014 (1)

  • Total portfolio average rental rates for new and renewal leases, on a same suite basis, rose 11.8% and the initial rental rates for new and renewal leases increased 9.2%, on average, for leases executed during the quarter.
  • Leased approximately 588,000 square feet.
  • At September 30, 2014, signed but not yet open (SNO) leases aggregated to $16.2 million of annual incremental revenue.
  • For the Operating Portfolio, inline leased percentage increased 0.7% year over year to 91.3%, and 94.9% including anchors.
  • For the Operating Portfolio, permanent leased percentage increased 2.6% year over year from 79.8% to 82.4%.
  • For the Operating Portfolio, tenant sales were $321 per square foot on a trailing twelve month basis. On a comparable basis, trailing twelve month Same Property tenant sales increased 2.1%.
  • Same Property NOI, as adjusted, increased 3.0% compared to the third quarter of 2013. Including the impact of Collin Creek and Vista Ridge, which were deemed as Special Consideration assets during the third quarter and therefore removed from the Same Property portfolio, Same Property NOI, as adjusted, increased 0.8%.
  • Same Property average mall in-place rent for tenants less than 10,000 square feet increased 1.9%, year over year, to $39.46 from $38.72 per square foot.
  • Subsequent to the end of the quarter, executed a contract for $106.7 million to sell Knollwood Mall, a 457,000 square foot center in suburban Minneapolis, Minnesota which is in the final stages of redevelopment.

(1) Operating Portfolio excludes properties undergoing substantial redevelopment and special consideration assets.

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2014

Core FFO was $23.7 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, as compared to $18.7 million, or $0.37 per diluted share in the prior year period. The growth year over year was the result of an increase in same property NOI and the impact of the properties that were acquired in 2013 and 2014, partially offset by the higher share count resulting from equity issued and additional interest expense from higher average debt balances.

Core NOI was $47.6 million as compared to $38.4 million in the prior year period. On a Same Property basis, excluding lease termination income of approximately $0.9 million, Same Property Core NOI, as adjusted, increased by 3.0% to $31.8 million from $30.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to September 30, 2013. Including the impact of Collin Creek and Vista Ridge, which were deemed as Special Consideration assets during the third quarter and therefore removed from the Same Property portfolio, Same Property NOI, as adjusted, increased 0.8%.

Net loss attributable to Rouse Properties was $(26.6) million or $(0.46) per basic and diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $(4.7) million or $(0.09) per basic and diluted share in the prior year period. Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2014, included a provision for impairment of $10.7 million, related to reductions in the estimated values of Steeplegate Mall and Collin Creek, two assets designated as special consideration. The change in net loss was primarily due to the impairment, as well as higher depreciation and amortization expenses and interest expenses, partially offset by higher revenue due to acquisitions and portfolio occupancy increases.

Transactions

In September 2014, the Company acquired a 51% interest in a joint venture partnership with David Hocker & Associates, Inc. to own and operate The Mall at Barnes Crossing, a single-level, 670,000 square foot enclosed regional mall in Tupelo, Mississippi, and a 60,000 square foot strip shopping center located adjacent to the property. In conjunction with the transaction, the joint venture closed on a new, ten-year $67.0 million non-recourse loan with an interest rate of 4.29%.

The Mall at Barnes Crossing is anchored by Belk, Belk Men’s and Home Store, jcpenney, Sears, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Barnes & Noble, and an eight-screen Cinemark movie theater. It also features a strong roster of national retailers such as Victoria’s Secret, Ann Taylor Loft, Chico’s, Buckle, Bath & Body Works, Francesca’s and Ulta. The Mall at Barnes Crossing serves a trade area of over 450,000 people.

Financial Activities

On July 1, 2014, the Company removed Chula Vista Center located in Chula Vista, CA from the 2013 Senior Facility collateral pool and placed a new $70.0 million non-recourse mortgage loan, secured by the asset. The loan bears interest at a fixed rate of 4.18%, has a term of ten years, and is interest only for the first three years. Sikes Senter located in Wichita Falls, TX, had an outstanding mortgage loan of $54.6 million with a fixed interest rate of 5.20% that was repaid on July 1, 2014 with proceeds from the Chula Vista Center refinancing. Upon repayment, Sikes Senter was added to the 2013 Senior Facility collateral pool with no change to the outstanding 2013 Senior Facility balance. These refinancings resulted in approximately $15.0 million of proceeds to the Company before transaction costs.

In July, 2014, the Company reduced the spread on the non-recourse mortgage loan on NewPark Mall located in Newark, CA, from LIBOR plus 405 basis points to LIBOR plus 325 basis points.

On July 21, 2014, a receiver was appointed for the Steeplegate Mall mortgage loan. The Company along with the special servicer and the receiver are working on an orderly transfer of the deed to the Steeplegate Mall mortgage lender or successor lender should the loan be sold in the coming months. The loan matured on August 1, 2014 and was not repaid. As such the loan is in default.

Subsequent Events

In October, the Company closed on a new $46.5 million mortgage loan secured by Bayshore Mall in Eureka, CA. The non-recourse CMBS loan carries a fixed interest rate of 3.96% and matures in November 2024. Proceeds were used to repay all outstanding indebtedness on the Company’s secured revolving credit facility and for general corporate purposes.

In October, the Company executed a contract with an institutional buyer to sell Knollwood Mall in St. Louis Park, MN, a 457,000 square foot retail center for $106.7 million. Knollwood Mall is currently under construction to convert the asset from an enclosed mall to a power center, and includes such leading tenants as Nordstrom Rack, Cub Foods, Kohl’s, TJ Maxx/HomeGoods, Ulta, Old Navy and DSW. The closing of the transaction is subject to the satisfaction of customary conditions.

Common Stock Dividend

On October 30, 2014, the Board of Directors declared a common stock dividend of $0.17 per share payable on January 30, 2015 to stockholders of record on January 15, 2015. The Company's objective is to continue to grow the dividend over time and the Board will continue to evaluate the dividend policy as the Company's repositioning and acquisition plans continue to take effect.

2014 Guidance

The Company is increasing its full year 2014 guidance range for Core FFO to $1.61 to $1.64 per diluted share, based on management's expectation as of the date of this release. Full year guidance assumes the following: Growth of 3.5% to 4.0% in Same Property Core NOI(1), as adjusted, excluding legacy litigation expenses, general and administrative expense of $25.0 million to $25.3 million, and net interest expense of $69.1 million to $69.6 million.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain matters within this press release are discussed using forward-looking language as specified in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and, as such, may involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results or performance to differ from those projected in the forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements may include statements related to the Company's ability to outperform the ongoing recovery of the retail and REIT industry and the markets in which the Company's mall properties are located, the Company's ability to generate internal and external growth, the Company's ability to identify and complete the acquisition of properties in new markets, the Company's ability to complete redevelopment projects, and the Company's ability to increase margins, including net operating income. For a description of factors that may cause the Company's actual results or performance to differ from its forward-looking statements, please review the information under the heading “Risk Factors” included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 and other documents filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company makes reference to net operating income (“NOI”) and funds from operations (“FFO”). NOI is defined as operating revenues (minimum rents, including lease termination fees, tenant recoveries, overage rents, and other income) less property and related expenses (property operating expenses, real estate taxes, repairs and maintenance, marketing, and provision for doubtful accounts). We use FFO, as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, as a supplemental measure of our operating performance. FFO is defined as net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders in accordance with GAAP, excluding impairment write-downs on depreciable real estate, gains (or losses) from cumulative effects of accounting changes, extraordinary items and sales of properties, and real estate related depreciation and amortization.

In order to present operations in a manner most relevant to its future operations, Core FFO and Core NOI have been presented to exclude certain non-cash and non-recurring revenue and expenses. A reconciliation of NOI to Core NOI and FFO to Core FFO has been included in the "Reconciliation of Core NOI and Core FFO" schedule attached to this release.

NOI, FFO and derivations thereof are not alternatives to GAAP operating income (loss) or net income (loss) available to common stockholders. For reference, as an aid in understanding management's computation of NOI and FFO, a reconciliation of NOI to operating income and FFO to net income (loss) in accordance with GAAP has been included in the "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP to GAAP Financial Measures" schedule attached to this release.
