Franklin Street Properties Corp. Announces Fourth Quarter and Annual 2016 Results

WAKEFIELD, Mass.--()--Franklin Street Properties Corp. (the “Company”, “FSP”, “we” or “our”) (NYSE MKT: FSP), a real estate investment trust (REIT), announced its results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016.

George J. Carter, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented as follows:

“As 2017 begins, FSP expects to see Funds From Operations (FFO) growth for the full year, resulting in between $1.04 and $1.09 per fully diluted share. We expect growth to be led by contributions from increased leasing activity at our properties, full year contribution from our 2016 acquisitions and anticipated successful results from our redevelopment of 801 Marquette in downtown Minneapolis. Over the past several years, the portfolio transition efforts at FSP have resulted in positioning a significant portion of our portfolio into more urban and infill locations. Over 75% of our portfolio is now located within our five core markets of Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Houston, and Minneapolis. We are optimistic about our prospects for long-term growth and look forward with anticipation to 2017 and beyond.”

  • We are maintaining our full year FFO guidance for 2017 to be in the range of approximately $1.04 to $1.09 per diluted share and, for the first quarter of 2017, we estimate FFO to be in the range of approximately $0.25 to $0.26 per diluted share.

Reconciliation and Definitions of Funds From Operations (“FFO”) and
Adjusted Funds From Operations (“AFFO”)
 

A reconciliation of Net Income to FFO and AFFO is shown below and a definition of FFO and AFFO is provided on Supplementary Schedule I. Management believes FFO and AFFO are used broadly throughout the real estate investment trust (REIT) industry as measurements of performance. The Company has included the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) FFO definition as of May 17, 2016 in the table and notes that other REITs may not define FFO in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or may interpret the current NAREIT definition differently. The Company’s computation of FFO and AFFO may not be comparable to FFO or AFFO reported by other REITs or real estate companies that define FFO or AFFO differently.

During the three months ended June 30, 2016 we changed the definition of FFO to exclude hedge ineffectiveness, which does not affect any prior period. Our interest rate swaps effectively fix interest rates on our term loans; however, there is no floor on the variable interest rate of the swaps whereas the current term loans are subject to a zero percent floor. As a result there is a mismatch and the ineffective portion of the derivatives’ changes in fair value are recognized directly into earnings each quarter as hedge ineffectiveness. We believe that FFO excluding hedge ineffectiveness is useful supplemental information regarding our operating performance as it provides a more meaningful and consistent comparison of our operating performance and allows investors to more easily compare our operating results.

Funds From Operations (“FFO”)

The Company evaluates performance based on Funds From Operations, which we refer to as FFO, as management believes that FFO represents the most accurate measure of activity and is the basis for distributions paid to equity holders. The Company defines FFO as net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, hedge ineffectiveness and acquisition costs of newly acquired properties that are not capitalized, plus depreciation and amortization, including amortization of acquired above and below market lease intangibles and impairment charges on properties or investments in non-consolidated REITs, and after adjustments to exclude equity in income or losses from, and, to include the proportionate share of FFO from, non-consolidated REITs.

FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP), nor as an indicator of the Company’s financial performance, nor as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP), nor as a measure of the Company’s liquidity, nor is it necessarily indicative of sufficient cash flow to fund all of the Company’s needs.

Other real estate companies and NAREIT, may define this term in a different manner. We have included the NAREIT FFO as of May 17, 2016 in the table and note that other REITs may not define FFO in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or may interpret the current NAREIT definition differently than we do.

We believe that in order to facilitate a clear understanding of the results of the Company, FFO should be examined in connection with net income and cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities in the consolidated financial statements.

Adjusted Funds From Operations (“AFFO”)

The Company also evaluates performance based on Adjusted Funds From Operations, which we refer to as AFFO. The Company defines AFFO as (1) FFO, (2) excluding our proportionate share of FFO and including distributions received, from non-consolidated REITs, (3) excluding the effect of straight-line rent, (4) plus deferred financing costs and (5) less recurring capital expenditures that are generally for maintenance of properties, which we call non-investment capex or are second generation capital expenditures. Second generation costs include re-tenanting space after a tenant vacates, which include tenant improvements and leasing commissions.

We exclude development/redevelopment activities, capital expenditures planned at acquisition and costs to reposition a property. We also exclude first generation leasing costs, which are generally to fill vacant space in properties we acquire or were planned for at acquisition.

AFFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP), nor as an indicator of the Company’s financial performance, nor as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP), nor as a measure of the Company’s liquidity, nor is it necessarily indicative of sufficient cash flow to fund all of the Company’s needs. Other real estate companies may define this term in a different manner. We believe that in order to facilitate a clear understanding of the results of the Company, AFFO should be examined in connection with net income and cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities in the consolidated financial statements.
