WP Glimcher Reports Second Quarter 2015 Results

Board of Directors Approves Third Quarter Dividend

COLUMBUS, Ohio--()--WP Glimcher Inc. (NYSE: WPG), a premier retail real estate investment trust specializing in the ownership, management and development of shopping centers, today reported financial results and operating data for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

“The second quarter marked the successful execution of key transactions designed to enhance our balance sheet and position the Company for future growth,” said Michael P. Glimcher, CEO. “We have found strong footing within our combined leasing and development efforts and we anticipate this progress to drive growth in 2016. Our focus remains on delivering shareholder value through solid execution within our current portfolio.”

Second Quarter Results

Same property net operating income (“NOI”) for the second quarter of 2015 for the Company’s core properties was flat compared to the second quarter of 2014. Ending occupancy for the core properties was 92.3% as of June 30, 2015, compared to 92.9% as of June 30, 2014, a decrease of 60 basis points. Base rent per square foot for the Company’s core properties was $21.32 at June 30, 2015, an increase of 1.5% compared to $21.00 per square foot at June 30, 2014. Mall in-line store sales at the Company’s core properties were $358 per square foot for the twelve months ending June 30, 2015 compared to $342 per square foot for the twelve months ending June 30, 2014, an increase of 4.7%. The properties acquired in the January 15, 2015 merger with Glimcher Realty Trust (“Glimcher”) are included in these metrics for both periods reported. These reported metrics exclude the impact of non-core properties. Non-core properties are comprised of seven assets that contribute 4% of the Company’s total NOI. These properties represent assets that generate positive cash flow, are unencumbered, but offer limited long-term growth potential.

Funds from Operations ("FFO") were $95.2 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 compared to $41.3 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the prior year period. Results for the second quarter of 2015 include a total of $11.2 million of costs related to the merger with Glimcher, including amortization associated with the up-front bridge loan fees. When excluding these costs, adjusted FFO per share was $106.4 million, or $0.48 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. The Company incurred approximately $39.9 million of expenses related to its May 2014 separation from Simon Property Group, Inc. in the second quarter of 2014 and no such costs were incurred in the second quarter of 2015. When excluding these costs, adjusted FFO for the second quarter of 2014 was $81.2 million, or $0.43 per diluted share. The $25.2 million increase in adjusted FFO primarily relates to the contribution of FFO from the properties acquired in the Glimcher merger, partially offset by increases in general and administrative expenses due to the Company operating as a separate, publicly traded company for a full quarter in 2015.

Net income attributable to common shareholders for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $3.9 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to net income of $69.8 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, during the same quarter a year ago. The Company recorded a gain on the sale of interests in properties of $91.3 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared to a gain of $5.1 million in the second quarter of 2015. This unfavorable variance to net income was partially offset by the expenses related to its May separation from Simon Property Group Inc. of $39.9 million incurred in the quarter ended June 30, 2014, while no such costs were incurred in the second quarter of 2015.

Investment Activity

Joint Venture Transaction

On June 1, 2015, the Company completed a joint venture transaction with O’Connor Capital Partners (“O’Connor JV”) with respect to the ownership and operation of five of WP Glimcher’s malls and certain related out-parcels, which are valued at approximately $1.625 billion. This pricing implies an approximate 5.25% capitalization rate on in-place NOI.

O’Connor Capital Partners holds a 49% ownership interest in the joint venture and WP Glimcher retained a 51% ownership interest. The five malls in the joint venture are: The Mall at Johnson City in Johnson City, Tennessee; Pearlridge Center in Aiea, Hawaii; Polaris Fashion Place® in Columbus, Ohio; Scottsdale Quarter® in Scottsdale, Arizona; and Town Center Plaza (which consists of Town Center Plaza and the adjacent Town Center Crossing) in Leawood, Kansas. WP Glimcher leases and manages the properties.

In exchange for its interest in the venture, O’Connor Capital Partners paid 49% of the aggregate value of the properties, less the mortgages secured by such properties, at closing, plus costs spent to date on the Phase III development at Scottsdale Quarter, subject to certain adjustments as set forth in the purchase agreement. Prior to the closing of the O’Connor JV, the Company replaced the debt on Pearlridge Center and Scottsdale Quarter with $390 million of new nonrecourse, 10-year permanent financing with a rate of 3.5% on both loans. The O’Connor JV generated net proceeds of approximately $432 million to the Company after taking into account the assumption of debt and estimated closing costs. The proceeds were used to repay a portion of the bridge loan that the Company used to finance the Glimcher merger.

Series G Redemption

The Company redeemed all of its issued and outstanding 8.125% Series G Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock on April 15, 2015. The aggregate amount paid to affect the redemptions of the Series G Shares was approximately $120.3 million and was funded with cash on hand.

Term Loan

On June 4, 2015, the Company borrowed $500 million on a term loan which bears interest at one-month LIBOR + 1.15% and matures in March 2020. Along with the proceeds from the O’Connor JV discussed previously, the Company repaid the remaining balance of the bridge loan with the proceeds from this term loan. On June 19, 2015, the Company executed swap agreements which effectively fixed the interest rate on the term loan at 2.26% through June 2018.

Mortgage Loans

On June 30, 2015, the Company repaid the $20.0 million mezzanine loan on WestShore Plaza in Tampa, Florida. On July 31, 2015, the Company repaid the $115.0 million mortgage on Clay Terrace in Carmel, Indiana and, on August 3, 2015, the Company repaid the $24.5 million mortgage on Bloomingdale Court in Bloomingdale, Illinois. These repayments were funded with available capacity on the Company’s credit facility.

2015 Guidance

The Company raised previously issued guidance for fiscal 2015 adjusted FFO (“AFFO”) to a range of $1.80 to $1.86 per diluted share, and net loss to be within a range of $(0.08) to $(0.03) per diluted share. The Company incurred $4 million of severance costs in the second quarter of 2015, and expects to incur approximately $4 million in additional severance expenses in the second half of 2015, which will be included in merger related costs. Other key guidance assumptions remained unchanged from previously issued guidance.

The following table provides the reconciliation for the expected range of estimated net income attributable to common shareholders per diluted share to estimated adjusted FFO per diluted share for the year ending December 31, 2015:

      Low       High

Merger related costs 0.13 0.14
Bridge fee amortization   0.05     0.05  
Estimated AFFO per diluted share $ 1.80   $ 1.86  
 

For the third quarter of 2015, the Company estimates net loss attributable to common shareholders per diluted share to be in the range of $(0.03) to $(0.01) and AFFO per share to be in the range of $0.40 to $0.42. The Company expects to incur approximately $2 million in severance expenses which will be included in merger related costs in the third quarter.

Supplemental Information

For additional details on WP Glimcher’s results and properties, please refer to the Supplemental Information report on the investor relations section of the Company’s website at www.wpglimcher.com. This earnings release as well as the supplemental information has also been furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in a Form 8-K.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes FFO and net operating income or NOI, including same property NOI growth, which are financial performance measures not defined by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in this press release. FFO and same property NOI growth are financial performance measures widely used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs.

The Company uses FFO in addition to net income to report operating results. We determine FFO based on the definition set forth by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, as net income computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding real estate related depreciation and amortization, excluding gains and losses from extraordinary items and cumulative effects of accounting changes, excluding gains and losses from the sales or disposals of previously depreciated retail operating properties, excluding impairment charges of depreciable real estate, plus the allocable portion of FFO of unconsolidated entities accounted for under the equity method of accounting based upon economic ownership interest.

Net operating income or NOI is used by industry analysts, investors and Company management to measure operating performance of the Company’s properties. NOI represents total property revenues less property operating and maintenance expenses. Accordingly, NOI excludes certain expenses included in the determination of net income such as corporate general and administrative expense and other indirect operating expenses, interest expense, impairment charges and depreciation and amortization expense. These items are excluded from NOI in order to provide results that are more closely related to a property’s results of operations. In addition, the Company’s computation of same mall NOI excludes termination income, and income from outparcel sales. The Company also adjusts for other miscellaneous items in order to enhance the comparability of results from one period to another. Certain items, such as interest expense, while included in FFO and net income, do not affect the operating performance of a real estate asset and are often incurred at the corporate level as opposed to the property level. As a result, management uses only those income and expense items that are incurred at the property level to evaluate a property’s performance. Real estate asset related depreciation and amortization, as well as impairment charges are excluded from NOI for the same reasons that they are excluded from FFO pursuant to NAREIT’s definition.

Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as they do not include all items of income and expense that affect operations, and accordingly, should always be considered as supplemental to financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. You should understand that our computation of these non-GAAP measures might not be comparable to similar measures reported by other REITs and that these non-GAAP measures do not represent cash flow from operations as defined by GAAP, should not be considered as alternatives to net income determined in accordance with GAAP as a measure of operating performance, are not alternatives to cash flows as a measure of liquidity, and may not be reflective of WPG's operating performance due to changes in WPG's capital structure in connection with the separation and distribution. Investors are cautioned that items excluded from these measures are significant components in understanding and addressing financial performance.

For a reconciliation of these measures and other information, please refer to the attached tables.
