Weighted average same-store occupancy for the quarter.

(3)

During the second quarter, 35,250 apartment homes, or approximately 90 percent of 39,404 total consolidated apartment homes (versus 49,322 apartment homes inclusive of joint ventures and development pipeline homes upon completion), were classified as same-store. The Company defines QTD SS Communities as those communities stabilized for five full consecutive quarters. These communities were owned and had stabilized occupancy and operating expenses as of the beginning of the quarter in the prior year, there is no plan to conduct substantial redevelopment activities, and the community is not held for disposition within the current year.

 

Sequentially, same-store NOI increased by 3.8 percent on revenue growth of 2.2 percent coupled with a 1.4 percent decline in expenses in the second quarter of 2015.

Year-to-date, for the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company’s same-store revenue increased 5.2 percent against a 2.1 percent increase in same-store expenses resulting in a same-store NOI increase of 6.6 percent year-over-year. Same-store physical occupancy was 96.8% as compared to 96.5% in the prior year period.

Development and Redevelopment Activity

At the end of the second quarter, the Company’s pro-rata share of the development pipeline totaled $1,066 million and the equity commitment was 69 percent funded. The $1,066 million consisted of $397 million of completed, non-stabilized projects and $670 million of under construction projects. Of the remaining $670 million in development projects left to complete, $162 million is expected to be completed in 2016, $166 million in 2017 and the balance in 2018. The development pipeline is currently expected to produce a weighted average spread between estimated stabilized yields and current market cap rates at or above the upper end of the Company’s 150 to 200 basis point targeted range.

The Company had an additional pro rata share of development exposure totaling $363 million through preferred equity and participating loan investments and the Company’s equity commitment was 94 percent funded. The $363 million consisted of $92 million of completed, non-stabilized projects and $271 million of under construction projects. Of the remaining $271 million in development projects left to complete, $215 is expected to be completed in 2016, and the balance in 2017.

The Company commenced one new development project during the second quarter. Pacific City, a 516-home community located in Huntington Beach, CA, is being developed for a budgeted cost of $342 million and is included in the Company’s $1,066 million development pipeline. The project is expected to be completed in 2018.

Transactional Activity

During the quarter, the Company entered into an agreement with Lone Star, Inc., Lone Star L.P. (collectively “Lone Star”), Home Properties, Inc. and Home Operating Partnership (collectively “Home”) to acquire up to six communities in the Washington, DC market for total consideration of up to $908 million at an estimated year-one cap rate of approximately 5.2 percent. The terms of the transaction are dependent on the number of Home OP unitholders converting to common OP units of a newly formed operating partnership of the Company (“UDR OP Units”). If all Home OP unitholders convert to UDR OP Units, the transaction would be funded through a combination of $753 million UDR OP Units issued at $35 per unit, the assumption of $90 million of debt and $65 million in cash. The number of UDR OP Units and the amount of cash will be determined at the closing of the consent solicitation of the Home OP unitholders which we anticipate to be completed during the first week of August 2015.

Based upon the level of Home OP unitholders electing to receive UDR OP units, UDR will have the option to either acquire less than six properties or to acquire some of the properties through Section 1031 exchanges pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code. The closing of the transaction is subject to certain customary closing conditions, including, among others, the satisfaction (or waiver) of certain closing conditions to the merger between Lone Star and Home, and is anticipated to occur during the third or fourth quarter of 2015.

The transaction will be accretive to 2016 FFO, FFO as Adjusted and AFFO by up to $0.015 per share depending on the number of units issued and the assets acquired. Additionally, if all Home OP unitholders convert to UDR OP Units, the Company’s 2016 balance sheet metrics will be positively impacted with debt to assets and net debt to EBITDA incrementally improving by up to 175 basis points and 0.2x, respectively.

Additionally, during the quarter, the Company disposed of three communities containing 812 homes in Orlando, FL, Tampa, FL and Portland, OR for an aggregate sales price of $110 million. Combined, the three sales were transacted at a weighted average 5.7 percent cash flow cap rate, had an average monthly revenue per occupied home of $1,190 in the second quarter of 2015 and were 30 years old on average.

Joint Venture / Partnership Investment Activity

As previously announced, the Company entered into a joint venture agreement with real estate private equity firm, The Wolff Company, Scottsdale, AZ (the “Partner”) to invest $136 million for a 48 percent interest in a portfolio of five communities that are currently under construction. The transaction closed in May 2015. The communities are located in three of the Company’s core, coastal markets: Metro Seattle, Los Angeles and Orange County, CA. The Company’s investment is based on an initial all-in price of $559 million and the transaction will be immediately accretive to FFO per share. The Company’s average stabilized yield on initial price is estimated at 5.4 percent. In addition, the Company will earn a 6.5 percent preferred return on its $136 million investment through each individual community’s date of stabilization, defined as when a community reaches 80 percent occupancy for ninety consecutive days, while the Partner is allocated all economics (income and expense) during the pre-stabilization period. Upon stabilization, economics will be shared based on each partner’s ownership percentage. The Company will serve as property manager and be paid a management fee during the lease-up phase and subsequent operation of each of the communities.

The Company has a fixed price option to acquire the Partner’s remaining interest in each community beginning one year after completion. If the options are exercised for all five communities, the Company’s total price will be $597 million and the all-in stabilized yield is estimated to be 5.0 percent. In the event the Company does not exercise its options to purchase at least two communities, the Partner will be entitled to a 6.5 percent return on its implied equity in the communities not acquired. The Partner is providing certain guaranties and there will be construction loans on all five communities.

Once completed the five communities will contain 1,533 homes with a weighted average size of 844 square feet and a total of 29,100 square feet of retail.

Additional details on the transaction can be found on the Company’s website at www.udr.com.

Balance Sheet

During the quarter, S&P Rating Services upgraded the Company’s senior unsecured credit rating to BBB+.

At June 30, 2015, the Company had $446 million in availability through a combination of cash and undrawn capacity on its credit facilities.

The Company’s total indebtedness at June 30, 2015 was $3.6 billion. The Company ended the quarter with fixed-rate debt representing 75.7 percent of its total debt, a total blended interest rate of 3.6 percent and a weighted average maturity of 4.1 years. The Company’s leverage was 37.5 percent versus 40.5 percent a year ago, net debt-to-EBITDA was 6.2x versus 6.9x a year ago and fixed charge coverage was 4.2x versus 3.6x a year ago.

Dividend

As previously announced, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly dividend on its common stock for the second quarter of 2015 in the amount of $0.2775 per share. The dividend will be paid in cash on July 31, 2015 to UDR common stock shareholders of record as of July 10, 2015. The second quarter 2015 dividend will represent the 171st consecutive quarterly dividend paid by the Company on its common stock.

On an annualized declared basis, the Company’s $1.11 per share 2015 dividend represents a 7 percent increase versus 2014.

Outlook

For the third quarter of 2015, the Company has established the following earnings guidance ranges:

    -- FFO per share:               $0.39 to $0.41
-- FFO as Adjusted per share: $0.39 to $0.41
-- AFFO per share: $0.34 to $0.36
 

For the full-year 2015, the Company has increased its previously provided earnings guidance ranges as a result of better-than-expected operations and expected accretion from its newly formed West Coast development joint venture:

                                         
Revised April 2015
FFO per share $1.64 to $1.68 $1.63 to $1.67
FFO as Adjusted per share $1.63 to $1.67 $1.61 to $1.65
AFFO per share $1.46 to $1.50 $1.44 to $1.48
 

For the full-year 2015, the Company has increased its previously provided same-store growth guidance ranges as a result of stronger-than-expected new lease and renewal rate growth combined with stable occupancy and lower turnover:

                                                 
Revised April 2015
Revenue 5.00% to 5.50% 4.25% to 4.75%
Expense 2.50% to 3.00% 2.50% to 3.00%
Net operating income 5.75% to 6.75% 4.75% to 5.75%

Attachment 16(B)
UDR, Inc.
Definitions and Reconciliations
June 30, 2015
(Unaudited)
 
Funds From Operations ("FFO") attributable to common stockholders and unitholders: The Company defines FFO as net income attributable to common stockholders and unitholders, excluding impairment write-downs of depreciable real estate or of investments in non-consolidated investees that are driven by measurable decreases in the fair value of depreciable real estate held by the investee, gains (or losses) from sales of depreciable property, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for noncontrolling interests, unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. This definition conforms with the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trust's definition issued in April 2002. In the computation of diluted FFO, unvested restricted stock, stock options, and the shares of Series E Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock are dilutive; therefore, they are included in the diluted share count.
 
Activities of our taxable REIT subsidiary (TRS), include development and land entitlement. From time to time, we develop and subsequently sell a TRS property which results in a short-term use of funds that produces a profit that differs from the traditional long-term investment in real estate for REITs. We believe that the inclusion of these TRS gains in FFO is consistent with the standards established by NAREIT as the short-term investment is incidental to our main business. TRS gains on sales, net of taxes, are defined as net sales proceeds less a tax provision and the gross investment basis of the asset before accumulated depreciation.
 
Management considers FFO a useful metric for investors as the Company uses FFO in evaluating property acquisitions and its operating performance and believes that FFO should be considered along with, but not as an alternative to, net income and cash flow as a measure of the Company's activities in accordance with GAAP. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and is not necessarily indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs. A reconciliation from net income attributable to UDR, Inc. to FFO is provided on Attachment 2.
 
Held For Disposition Communities: The Company defines Held for Disposition Communities as those communities that were held for sale as of the end of the most recent quarter.
 
Interest Coverage Ratio: The Company defines Interest Coverage Ratio as net income, excluding the impact of interest expense, real estate depreciation and amortization of wholly owned and joint venture communities, other depreciation and amortization, noncontrolling interests, net gain on the sale of depreciable property, TRS income tax, divided by total interest.
 
Management considers interest coverage ratio a useful metric for investors as it provides ratings agencies, investors and lending partners with a widely-used measure of the Company’s ability to service its debt obligations as well as compare leverage against that of its peer REITs. A reconciliation of the components that comprise interest coverage ratio is provided on Attachment 4(C) of the Company's quarterly supplemental disclosure.
 
Joint Venture Reconciliation at UDR's Weighted Average Pro-Rata Ownership Interest
 
In thousands 2Q 2015 YTD 2015

Gain on sale   -     (59,073 )
Total Joint Venture NOI at UDR's Pro-Rata Ownership Interest $ 17,717   $ 35,671  
 
JV Return on Equity ("ROE"): The Company defines JV ROE as the pro rata share of property NOI plus property and asset management fee revenue less interest expense, divided by the average of beginning and ending equity capital for the quarter.
 
Management considers ROE a useful metric for investors as it provides a widely used measure of how well the Company is investing its capital on a leveraged basis.
 
JV Return on Invested Capital ("ROIC"): The Company defines JV ROIC as the pro rata share of property NOI plus property and asset management fee revenue divided by the average of beginning and ending invested capital for the quarter.
 
Management considers ROIC a useful metric for investors as it provides a widely used measure of how well the Company is investing its capital on an unleveraged basis.
 
Net Debt to EBITDA: The Company defines net debt to EBITDA as total debt net of cash and cash equivalents divided by EBITDA. EBITDA is defined as net income, excluding the impact of interest expense, real estate depreciation and amortization of wholly owned and other joint venture communities, other depreciation and amortization, noncontrolling interests, net gain on the sale of depreciable property, and TRS income tax.
 
Management considers net debt to EBITDA a useful metric for investors as it provides ratings agencies, investors and lending partners with a widely-used measure of the Company’s ability to service its debt obligations as well as compare leverage against that of its peer REITs. A reconciliation between net income and EBITDA is provided on Attachment 4(C) of the Company's quarterly supplemental disclosure.
 
Net Operating Income (“NOI”): The Company defines NOI as rental income less direct property rental expenses. Rental income represents gross market rent less adjustments for concessions, vacancy loss and bad debt. Rental expenses include real estate taxes, insurance, personnel, utilities, repairs and maintenance, administrative and marketing. Excluded from NOI is property management expense which is calculated as 2.75% of property revenue to cover the regional supervision and accounting costs related to consolidated property operations, and land rent.
 
Management considers NOI a useful metric for investors as it is a more meaningful representation of a community’s continuing operating performance than net income as it is prior to corporate-level expense allocations, general and administrative costs, capital structure and depreciation and amortization and is a widely used input, along with capitalization rates, in the determination of real estate valuations. A reconciliation from net income attributable to UDR, Inc. to NOI is provided below.
