Post Properties Announces Second Quarter 2015 Earnings

Increases Full-Year Guidance and Announces $100 Million Share Repurchase Program

Investor/Analyst Conference Call Scheduled for Tuesday, August 4 at 10:00 a.m. ET

ATLANTA--()--Post Properties, Inc. (NYSE: PPS) announced today net income available to common shareholders of $18.7 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2015 compared to $46.8 million, or $0.86 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2014.

Net income available to common shareholders for the six months ended June 30, 2015, was $37.7 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, compared to $60.1 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2014.

Net income for the first six months of 2015 included a gain on the sale of real estate assets of $1.5 million. Net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, included gains on sales of real estate assets of $36.1 million and $36.9 million, respectively, offset by a loss of $4.3 million on the extinguishment of indebtedness.

Funds From Operations

The Company uses the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) definition of Funds from Operations (“FFO”) as an operating measure of the Company’s financial performance. A reconciliation of FFO to GAAP net income is included in the financial data (Table 1) accompanying this press release.

FFO for the second quarter of 2015 was $40.4 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, compared to $31.7 million, or $0.58 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2014. FFO for the three months ended June 30, 2014 included a net loss on extinguishment of indebtedness of $4.3 million, or $0.08 per diluted share.

FFO for the six months ended June 30, 2015 was $78.9 million, or $1.44 per diluted share, compared to $66.8 million, or $1.22 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2014. FFO for the first half of 2015 included losses on extinguishment of indebtedness of $0.2 million, or less than $0.01 per diluted share. FFO for the first half of 2014 included FFO from condominium activities of $0.8 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, as well as the net loss on extinguishment of indebtedness of $4.3 million, or $0.08 per diluted share.

Said Dave Stockert, Post’s CEO, “In the second quarter we posted another double-digit growth rate in earnings and cash flow, on solid apartment market conditions. As a result of the Company’s performance in the first half, we are increasing full-year guidance. We are also setting aside $100 million of capital to pursue share repurchases over roughly the next four quarters where we believe we can capture the difference between the share price and the underlying net asset value of the portfolio.”

Same Store Community Data

Total revenues at the Company’s 50 same store communities, containing 18,780 apartment units, increased 2.8% and total operating expenses increased 2.6% during the second quarter of 2015, compared to the second quarter of 2014, producing a 2.9% increase in same store net operating income (“NOI”). The average monthly rental rate per unit increased 2.2% during the second quarter of 2015, compared to the second quarter of 2014. Average economic occupancy was 96.0% in the second quarter of 2015, compared to 95.9% for the second quarter of 2014.

On a sequential basis, total revenues for the same store communities increased 2.1% and total operating expenses increased 3.3%, resulting in a 1.3% increase in same store NOI for the second quarter of 2015, compared to the first quarter of 2015. On a sequential basis, the average monthly rental rate per unit increased 0.6%. For the second quarter of 2015, average economic occupancy at the same store communities was 96.0%, compared to 94.9% for the first quarter of 2015.

Total revenues for the same store communities increased 2.6% and total operating expenses increased 3.4% during the first half of 2015, compared to the first half of 2014, producing a 2.0% increase in same store NOI. The average monthly rental rate per unit increased 2.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2015, compared to the six months ended June 30, 2014. For the six months ended June 30, 2015, average economic occupancy at the Company’s same store communities was 95.5% compared to 95.6% for the six months ended June 30, 2014.

Same store NOI is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure. A reconciliation of same store NOI to the comparable GAAP financial measure is included in the financial data (Table 2) accompanying this press release. Information on same store NOI and average rental rate per unit by geographic market is also included in the financial data (Table 3) accompanying this press release.

Investment Activity

Development Activity

The Company announced today a modest expansion of its current development project at the Post Parkside™ at Wade, Phase II community to include 15 luxury townhomes with an average unit size of approximately 1,893 square feet. These for-rent townhomes are expected to have a total estimated development cost of approximately $4.5 million and are expected to initially produce an estimated stabilized yield on cost of approximately 6.0%, calculated on current market rents and after a 3% management fee and $300 per unit replacement reserve.

In the aggregate, the Company has 1,834 units in five apartment communities, and approximately 5,800 square feet of retail space, under development with a total estimated cost of $369.9 million, and a remaining funding requirement of $228.6 million. The Company believes it has adequate internal and external resources to fund its development commitments.

Share Repurchase Program

The Company announced today that it plans to allocate up to $100 million of capital, under its previously existing authorization, to pursue a program of share repurchases over approximately the next 12 months. Such repurchases are expected to be conditioned on the trading price of the Company’s common stock in relation to management’s estimates of the net asset value of the Company’s portfolio, and on general economic and market conditions. There can be no assurance that any shares will be repurchased under this program.

Financing Activity

Leverage and Line of Credit Capacity

Total debt and preferred equity as a percentage of undepreciated real estate assets (adjusted for joint venture partners’ share of real estate assets and debt) was 30.7% at June 30, 2015.

As of July 31, 2015, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $95 million. Additionally, the Company had no outstanding borrowings, and letters of credit totaling $0.1 million under its combined $330 million unsecured lines of credit. The Company has no principal debt maturities until 2017.

Computations of debt ratios and reconciliations of the ratios to the appropriate GAAP measures in the Company’s financial statements are included in the financial data (Table 4) accompanying this press release.

2015 Outlook

The estimates and assumptions presented below are forward looking and are based on the Company’s future view of the apartment markets and of general economic conditions, as well as other risks outlined below under the caption “Forward-Looking Statements.” There can be no assurance that the Company’s actual results will not differ materially from the estimates set forth below. The Company assumes no obligation to update this guidance in the future.

Based on its current outlook, the Company anticipates that FFO and AFFO per diluted share for the full year 2015 will be in the range set forth below. Adjusted Funds from Operations (“AFFO”) per share is defined as FFO per share less operating property capital expenditures after adjusting for the impact of non-cash straight-line long-term ground lease expense and debt extinguishment losses.

    Current     Previously
Outlook Issued Outlook
FFO $2.90 - $2.96 $2.85 - $2.95
AFFO $2.44 - $2.52 $2.39 - $2.51

There were no significant changes in the Company’s previously disclosed same store NOI guidance or other assumptions.

The Company anticipates that net income available to common shareholders will be in the range of $1.33 to $1.41 per diluted share, as compared to its previously issued outlook of $1.25 to $1.37 per diluted share for the full year 2015. The difference between net income available to common shareholders and FFO per diluted share is depreciation on real estate assets, which is anticipated to be $1.58 to $1.60, and gains on sales of real estate assets of $0.03 per diluted share. The difference between FFO and AFFO per diluted share is operating property capital expenditures after adjusting for the impact of non-cash straight-line long-term ground lease expense. Those operating property capital expenditures, net of the ground lease adjustment, are anticipated to total $0.44 to $0.46 per diluted share.

The Company also produces Supplemental Financial Data that includes detailed information regarding the Company’s operating results, investment activity, financing activity, balance sheet and properties. This Supplemental Financial Data is considered an integral part of this earnings release and is available on the Company’s website.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Defined Terms

The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures and other defined terms in this press release and in its Supplemental Financial Data available on the Company’s website. The non-GAAP financial measures include FFO, Adjusted Funds from Operations (“AFFO”), net operating income, same store capital expenditures, and certain debt statistics and ratios. The definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures are listed below and on page 19 of the Supplemental Financial Data. The Company believes that these measures are helpful to investors in measuring financial performance and/or liquidity and comparing such performance and/or liquidity to other REITs.

Funds from Operations – The Company uses FFO as an operating measure. The Company uses the NAREIT definition of FFO. FFO is defined by NAREIT to mean net income (loss) available to common shareholders determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from extraordinary items and sales of depreciable operating property, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, non-cash impairment charges on depreciable real estate, and after adjustment for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures all determined on a consistent basis in accordance with GAAP. FFO presented in the Company’s press release and Supplemental Financial Data is not necessarily comparable to FFO presented by other real estate companies because not all real estate companies use the same definition. The Company’s FFO is comparable to the FFO of real estate companies that use the current NAREIT definition.

Accounting for real estate assets using historical cost accounting under GAAP assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. NAREIT stated in its April 2002 White Paper on Funds from Operations that “since real estate asset values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors have considered presentations of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by themselves.” As a result, the concept of FFO was created by NAREIT for the REIT industry to provide an alternate measure. Since the Company agrees with the concept of FFO and appreciates the reasons surrounding its creation, the Company believes that FFO is an important supplemental measure of operating performance. In addition, since most equity REITs provide FFO information to the investment community, the Company believes that FFO is a useful supplemental measure for comparing the Company’s results to those of other equity REITs. The Company believes that the line on its consolidated statement of operations entitled “net income available to common shareholders” is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to FFO.

Adjusted Funds From Operations – The Company also uses AFFO as an operating measure. AFFO is defined as FFO less operating capital expenditures and after adjusting for the impact of non-cash straight-line long-term ground lease expense, non-cash impairment charges, debt extinguishment gains (losses) and preferred stock redemption costs. The Company believes that AFFO is an important supplemental measure of operating performance for an equity REIT because it provides investors with an indication of the REIT’s ability to fund its operating capital expenditures through earnings. In addition, since most equity REITs provide AFFO information to the investment community, the Company believes that AFFO is a useful supplemental measure for comparing the Company to other equity REITs. The Company believes that the line on its consolidated statement of operations entitled “net income available to common shareholders” is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to AFFO.

Property Net Operating Income (“NOI”) – The Company uses property NOI, including same store NOI and same store NOI by market, as an operating measure. NOI is defined as rental and other revenues from real estate operations less total property and maintenance expenses from real estate operations (exclusive of depreciation and amortization). The Company believes that NOI is an important supplemental measure of operating performance for a REIT’s operating real estate because it provides a measure of the core operations, rather than factoring in depreciation and amortization, financing costs and general and administrative expenses generally incurred at the corporate level. This measure is particularly useful, in the opinion of the Company, in evaluating the performance of geographic operations, same store groupings and individual properties. Additionally, the Company believes that NOI, as defined, is a widely accepted measure of comparative operating performance in the real estate investment community. The Company believes that the line on its consolidated statement of operations entitled “net income” is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to NOI.

Same Store Capital Expenditures – The Company uses same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures as cash flow measures. Same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures are important indicators of the costs incurred by the Company in maintaining its same store communities on an ongoing basis. The corresponding GAAP measures include information with respect to the Company’s other operating segments consisting of newly stabilized communities, lease-up communities, held for sale communities, sold communities and commercial properties in addition to same store information. Therefore, the Company believes that the Company’s presentation of same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures is necessary to demonstrate same store replacement costs over time. The Company believes that the most directly comparable GAAP measure to same store annually recurring and periodically recurring capital expenditures is the line on the Company’s consolidated statements of cash flows entitled “property capital expenditures,” which also includes revenue generating capital expenditures.

Debt Statistics and Debt Ratios – The Company uses a number of debt statistics and ratios as supplemental measures of liquidity. The numerator and/or the denominator of certain of these statistics and/or ratios include non-GAAP financial measures that have been reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. These debt statistics and ratios include: (1) interest coverage ratios; (2) fixed charge coverage ratios; (3) total debt as a percentage of undepreciated real estate assets (adjusted for joint venture partner’s share of debt); (4) total debt plus preferred equity as a percentage of undepreciated real estate assets (adjusted for joint venture partner’s share of debt); (5) a ratio of consolidated debt to total assets; (6) a ratio of secured debt to total assets; (7) a ratio of total unencumbered assets to unsecured debt; (8) a ratio of consolidated income available for debt service to annual debt service charge; and (9) a debt to annualized income available for debt service ratio. A number of these debt statistics and ratios are derived from covenants found in the Company’s debt agreements, including, among others, the Company’s senior unsecured notes. In addition, the Company presents these measures because the degree of leverage could affect the Company’s ability to obtain additional financing for working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions, development or other general corporate purposes. The Company uses these measures internally as an indicator of liquidity, and the Company believes that these measures are also utilized by the investment and analyst communities to better understand the Company’s liquidity.

The Company uses income available for debt service to calculate certain debt ratios and statistics. Income available for debt service is defined as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, gains on sales of real estate assets, non-cash impairment charges and other non-cash income and expenses. Income available for debt service is a supplemental measure of operating performance that does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or cash flow from operating activities as determined under GAAP, and the Company’s calculation thereof may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other companies, including EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA.

Property Operating Statistics – The Company uses average economic occupancy, gross turnover, net turnover and percentage increases in rent for new and renewed leases as statistical measures of property operating performance. The Company defines average economic occupancy as gross potential rent plus other rental fees less vacancy losses, model expenses and bad debt expenses divided by gross potential rent for the period, expressed as a percentage. Gross turnover is defined as the percentage of leases expiring during the period that are not renewed by the existing residents. Net turnover is defined as gross turnover decreased by the percentage of expiring leases where the residents transfer to a new apartment unit in the same community or in another Post® community. The percentage increases in rent for new and renewed leases are calculated using the respective new or renewed rental rate as of the date of a new lease, as compared with the previous rental rate on that same unit.
