Equity Commonwealth Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Results

CHICAGO--()--Equity Commonwealth (NYSE: EQC) today reported financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2016. All per share results are reported on a diluted basis.

This compares to net income attributable to common shareholders of $36.2 million, or $0.28 per share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2015. The decline in net income was primarily due to property sales and losses on asset impairment.

  • $0.04 per share of interest expense savings;

The redemption payment occurred on May 16, 2016 (the first business day following the redemption date).

(1)  

On May 15, 2016, we redeemed all of our 11,000,000 outstanding series E preferred shares at a price of $25.00 per share, for a total of $275.0 million, plus any accrued and unpaid dividends. The redemption payment occurred on May 16, 2016 (the first business day following the redemption date). We recorded $9.6 million related to the excess fair value of consideration paid over the carrying value of the preferred shares as a reduction to FFO attributable to Equity Commonwealth common shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2016.

 
(2) Amounts relate to contractual cash payments (including management fees) from one tenant at Arizona Center. Arizona Center was sold during the fourth quarter of 2015. Our calculation of Normalized FFO reflects the cash payments received from this tenant. The terms of this tenant's lease required us to classify the lease as a direct financing (or capital) lease. As such, the revenue recognized on a GAAP basis within our condensed consolidated statements of operations was $(281) for the three months ended December 31, 2015, and $98 for the year ended December 31, 2015.
 
(3) Shareholder litigation and transition related expenses within general and administrative for the year ended December 31, 2016 is primarily related to the shareholder-approved liability for the reimbursement of expenses incurred by Related/Corvex since February 2013 in connection with their consent solicitations to remove the former Trustees, elect the new Board of Trustees and engage in related litigation. Approximately $16.7 million was reimbursed to Related/Corvex during 2014, and in August 2016 and 2015, we reimbursed $8.2 million and $8.4 million, respectively, to Related/Corvex under the terms of the shareholder-approved agreement. As of December 31, 2016, there is no future obligation to pay any amounts under the shareholder-approved agreement to Related/Corvex. No shareholder litigation related expenses were incurred during 2016.
 
(4) As of December 31, 2016, we had granted RSUs to certain employees, officers, and the Chairman of the Board of Trustees. The RSUs are equity awards that contain both service and market-based vesting components. None of the RSUs have vested. If the market-based vesting component was measured as of December 31, 2016, and 2015, 1,027 and 1,143 common shares would be issued to the RSU holders, respectively. Using a weighted average basis, 1,027 and 1,143 common shares are reflected in diluted earnings per common share, diluted FFO per common share, and diluted Normalized FFO per common share for the three months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively, and 1,294 and 816 common shares are reflected in these measures for the year ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 respectively.
 
We compute FFO in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT). NAREIT defines FFO as net income (loss), calculated in accordance with GAAP, excluding real estate depreciation and amortization, gains (or losses) from sales of depreciable property, impairment of depreciable real estate, and our portion of these items related to equity investees and noncontrolling interests. Our calculation of Normalized FFO differs from NAREIT’s definition of FFO because we exclude certain items that we view as nonrecurring or impacting comparability from period to period. FFO and Normalized FFO are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures. We consider FFO and Normalized FFO to be appropriate measures of operating performance for a REIT, along with net income, net income attributable to Equity Commonwealth common shareholders, operating income and cash flow from operating activities.
 
We believe that FFO and Normalized FFO provide useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain historical amounts, such as depreciation expense, FFO and Normalized FFO may facilitate a comparison of our operating performance between periods and with other REITs. FFO and Normalized FFO do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, net income attributable to Equity Commonwealth common shareholders, operating income or cash flow from operating activities, determined in accordance with GAAP, or as indicators of our financial performance or liquidity, nor are these measures necessarily indicative of sufficient cash flow to fund all of our needs. These measures should be considered in conjunction with net income, net income attributable to Equity Commonwealth common shareholders, operating income and cash flow from operating activities as presented in our condensed consolidated statements of operations, condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income and condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. Other REITs and real estate companies may calculate FFO and Normalized FFO differently than we do.

NOI is income from our real estate including lease termination fees received from tenants less our property operating expenses. NOI excludes amortization of capitalized tenant improvement costs and leasing commissions and corporate level expenses. Cash Basis NOI is NOI excluding the effects of straight line rent adjustments, lease value amortization, and lease termination fees. The quarter-to-date same property versions of these measures include the results of properties continuously owned from October 1, 2015 through December 31, 2016. The year-to-date same property versions of these measures include the results of properties continuously owned from January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2016. Land parcels and properties classified as held for sale within our condensed consolidated balance sheets are excluded from the same property versions of these measures.
 
We consider these supplemental non-GAAP financial measures to be appropriate supplemental measures to net income because they help to understand the operations of our properties. We use these measures internally to evaluate property level performance, and we believe that they provide useful information to investors regarding our results of operations because they reflect only those income and expense items that are incurred at the property level and may facilitate comparisons of our operating performance between periods and with other REITs. Cash Basis NOI is among the factors considered with respect to acquisition, disposition and financing decisions. These measures do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, net income attributable to Equity Commonwealth common shareholders, operating income or cash flow from operating activities, determined in accordance with GAAP, or as indicators of our financial performance or liquidity, nor are these measures necessarily indicative of sufficient cash flow to fund all of our needs. These measures should be considered in conjunction with net income, net income attributable to Equity Commonwealth common shareholders, operating income and cash flow from operating activities as presented in our condensed consolidated statements of operations, condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income and condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. Other REITs and real estate companies may calculate these measures differently than we do.
