Management Commentary

“2016 was another year of outperformance and growth for STORE Capital, clearly depicting the foundational distinction that makes STORE the best platform our team has ever created,” said Christopher H. Volk, President and Chief Executive Officer of STORE Capital. “In 2016, we grew comparable AFFO per share by over 10% and raised our dividend by more than 7%. During the year, we acquired 367 properties through 145 separate transactions, grew our customer count by 19% and added over 20 industry groups to our customer base as we continued to expand our diversified capital markets strategy, locking in historically attractive long-term spreads. Stability and quality continued to define our portfolio, as we concluded 2016 with approximately 99.5% of our portfolio occupied and 75% of our lease contracts of investment-grade quality as measured by our STORE Score model. The combination of our portfolio quality and strong financial position, together with our modest corporate leverage targets, significant investment diversity, increasing stockholder dividend protection and impressive internal growth potential, convey the powerful margins of safety for our stockholders we have built into everything we do. Our strong investment activity in 2016, coupled with continued investment in our distinctive origination platform, gives us good reason to be optimistic about our future prospects and growth.”

Financial Results

Total Revenues

Total revenues were $102.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, an increase of 28.3% from $79.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2015.

Total revenues for 2016 were $376.3 million, an increase of 32.2% from $284.8 million for 2015. The increase was driven primarily by the growth in the size of STORE Capital’s real estate investment portfolio, which grew from $4.0 billion in gross investment amount representing 1,325 property locations at December 31, 2015 to $5.1 billion in gross investment amount representing 1,660 property locations at December 31, 2016.

Net Income

Net income was $31.9 million, or $0.20 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2016, an increase of 32.7% from $24.1 million, or $0.18 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2015. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2016 included $3.7 million of net gains on the sale of properties. In comparison, net income for the fourth quarter of 2015 included $0.6 million of net losses on the sale of properties.

Net income for 2016 was $123.3 million, or $0.82 per basic and diluted share, an increase of 47.2% from $83.8 million, or $0.68 per basic and diluted share, for 2015. The Company reported gains of $13.2 million on the sale of 31 properties during 2016. During 2015, the Company recognized gains of $1.3 million on the sale of 13 properties.

Adjusted Funds from Operations (AFFO)

AFFO was $67.1 million, or $0.43 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2016, an increase of 27.8% from $52.6 million, or $0.40 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2015.

AFFO for 2016 was $245.8 million, or $1.65 per basic share and $1.64 per diluted share, an increase of 34.0% from $183.5 million, or $1.49 per basic and diluted share, for 2015. The increase in AFFO between years was primarily driven by additional rental revenues and interest income generated by the growth in the Company’s real estate investment portfolio.

Dividend Information

As previously announced, STORE Capital declared a regular quarterly cash dividend per common share of $0.29 for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2016. This dividend, totaling $46.2 million, was paid on January 17, 2017 to stockholders of record on December 30, 2016.

Real Estate Portfolio Highlights

Investment Activity

The Company originated $325.0 million of gross investments representing 94 property locations during the fourth quarter of 2016, adding 17 new customers. These investments had an initial weighted average cap rate of 7.9%. Total investment activity for the year was $1.2 billion representing 367 property locations with an initial weighted average cap rate of 7.9%. The Company defines “initial cap rate” for property acquisitions as the initial annual cash rent divided by the purchase price of the property.

Disposition Activity

During the year ended December 31, 2016, the Company sold 31 properties and recognized an aggregate gain, net of tax, of $13.2 million; 10 of these 31 properties were sold in the fourth quarter at an aggregate gain, net of tax, of $3.7 million. The aggregate investment amount of the 31 properties sold represented approximately 1.8% of the total investment portfolio at the beginning of 2016.

Portfolio

At December 31, 2016, STORE Capital’s real estate portfolio totaled $5.1 billion representing 1,660 property locations. Approximately 95% of the portfolio represents commercial real estate properties subject to long-term leases, 5% represents mortgage loans and direct financing receivables primarily on commercial real estate buildings (located on land the Company owns and leases to its customers) and a nominal amount represents loans receivable secured by the tenants’ other assets. As of December 31, 2016, the portfolio’s annualized base rent and interest (based on rates in effect on December 31, 2016 for all lease and loan contracts) totaled $418.5 million. The weighted average non-cancelable remaining term of the leases at December 31, 2016 was approximately 14 years.

The Company's customers operate their businesses across a diverse range of more than 420 brand names, or concepts, and the largest single concept represented 3.1% of the Company's annualized base rent and interest as of December 31, 2016.

* Based on annualized base rent and interest.

(1)

 

Represents the weighted average annual escalation rate of the entire portfolio as if all escalations occurred annually. For escalations based on a formula including CPI, assumes the stated fixed percentage in the contract or assumes 1.5% if no fixed percentage is in the contract. For contracts with no escalations remaining in the current lease term, assumes the escalation in the extension term. Calculation excludes contracts representing less than 0.3% of annualized base rent and interest where there are no further escalations remaining in the current lease term and there are no extension options.

(2)

The Company defines occupancy as a property being subject to a lease or loan contract. As of December 31, 2016, eight of the Company’s properties were vacant and not subject to a contract.

(3)

Represents the number of the Company’s investment locations that have been closed by the tenant but remain subject to a lease.

(4)

Percentage of investment portfolio in multiple properties with a single customer subject to master leases. Approximately 81% of the investment portfolio involves multiple properties with a single customer, whether or not subject to a master lease.

(5)

Represents the ratio of purchase price to replacement cost (new) at acquisition.

(6)

STORE Capital calculates a unit’s FCCR generally as the ratio of (i) the unit’s EBITDAR, less a standardized corporate overhead expense based on estimated industry standards, to (ii) the unit’s total fixed charges, which are its lease expense, interest expense and scheduled principal payments on indebtedness. The 4-Wall coverage ratio refers to a unit’s FCCR before taking into account standardized corporate overhead expense.

(7)

Represents the percentage of the Company’s contracts that have a STORE Score that is investment grade. The Company measures the credit quality of its portfolio on a contract-by-contract basis using the STORE Score, which is a proprietary risk measure reflective of both the credit risk of the Company’s tenants and the profitability of the operations at the properties. As of December 31, 2016, STORE Capital’s tenants had a median tenant credit profile of approximately ‘Ba2’ as measured by Moody's Analytics RiskCalc rating scale. Considering the profitability of the operations at each of its properties and STORE’s assessment of the likelihood that each of the tenants will choose to continue to operate at the properties in the event of their insolvency, the credit quality of its contracts, or STORE Score, is enhanced to a median of ‘Baa2’.

 

Capital Transactions

In September 2016, the Company established an “at the market” equity distribution program, or ATM program, pursuant to which, from time to time, it offers and sells registered shares of common stock up to a maximum amount of $400 million through a group of banks acting as its sales agents. During the fourth quarter of 2016, the Company sold approximately 3.6 million shares and raised approximately $87.7 million in net proceeds under the ATM program. Since the start of the program, the Company has sold approximately 6.1 million shares at a weighted average share price of $26.66, raising $159.3 million in aggregate net proceeds after the payment of sales agents’ commissions and offering expenses.

On October 18, 2016, certain of the Company’s consolidated special purpose entities issued an additional series of STORE Master Funding net-lease mortgage notes consisting of $200.0 million of Class A-1 notes, $135.0 million of Class A-2 notes and $20.0 million of Class B notes. The Class A-1 notes are 10-year notes with an interest rate of 3.96%. The Class A-2 notes are 10.5-year notes and were retained by the Company for sale at a future date. The Class B notes were also retained by the Company.

2017 Guidance

Affirming its 2017 guidance presented in November 2016, the Company currently expects 2017 AFFO per share to be within a range of $1.74 to $1.76, based on projected 2017 annual real estate acquisition volume, net of projected property sales, of approximately $900 million. This AFFO per share guidance equates to anticipated net income, excluding gains or losses on sales of property, of $0.78 to $0.79 per share, plus $0.87 to $0.88 per share of expected real estate depreciation and amortization, plus approximately $0.09 per share related to such items as straight-line rent and the amortization of stock-based compensation and deferred financing costs. AFFO per share is sensitive to the timing and amount of real estate acquisitions and capital markets activities during the year, as well as to the spread achieved between the lease rates on new acquisitions and the interest rates on borrowings used to finance those acquisitions.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

FFO and AFFO

STORE Capital’s reported results are presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. The Company also discloses Funds from Operations, or FFO, and Adjusted Funds from Operations, or AFFO, both of which are non-GAAP measures. Management believes these two non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they are widely accepted industry measures used by analysts and investors to compare the operating performance of REITs. FFO and AFFO do not represent cash generated from operating activities and are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash requirements; accordingly, they should not be considered alternatives to net income as a performance measure or to cash flows from operations as reported on a statement of cash flows as a liquidity measure and should be considered in addition to, and not in lieu of, GAAP financial measures.

The Company computes FFO in accordance with the definition adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT. NAREIT defines FFO as GAAP net income, excluding gains (or losses) from extraordinary items and sales of depreciable property, real estate impairment losses, and depreciation and amortization expense from real estate assets, including the pro rata share of such adjustments of unconsolidated subsidiaries.

To derive AFFO, the Company modifies the NAREIT computation of FFO to include other adjustments to GAAP net income related to certain non-cash revenues and expenses that have no impact on the Company’s long-term operating performance, such as straight-line rents, amortization of deferred financing costs and stock-based compensation. In addition, in deriving AFFO, the Company excludes transaction costs associated with acquiring real estate subject to existing leases and certain other expenses not related to its ongoing operations.

FFO is used by management, investors and analysts to facilitate meaningful comparisons of operating performance between periods and among the Company’s peers primarily because it excludes the effect of real estate depreciation and amortization and net gains on sales, which are based on historical costs and implicitly assume that the value of real estate diminishes predictably over time, rather than fluctuating based on existing market conditions. Management believes that AFFO provides more useful information to investors and analysts because it modifies FFO to exclude certain additional non-cash revenues and expenses such as straight-line rents, amortization of deferred financing costs and stock-based compensation as such items may cause short-term fluctuations in net income but have no impact on long-term operating performance. Additionally, in deriving AFFO, the Company excludes transaction costs associated with acquiring real estate subject to existing leases. The Company views transaction costs to be a part of the investment in the real estate it acquires, similar to the treatment of acquisition and closing costs on sale-leaseback transactions, which are capitalized as a part of the investment in the asset. The Company believes that transaction costs are not an ongoing cost of the portfolio in place at the end of each reporting period and, for these reasons, the portion expensed is added back when computing AFFO. Similarly, in 2016 the Company excluded the offering expenses incurred on behalf of its selling stockholder, STORE Holding, when it exited all of its holdings in STORE Capital common stock, as those costs are not related to the Company’s ongoing operations. As a result, the Company believes AFFO to be a more meaningful measurement of ongoing performance that allows for greater performance comparability. Therefore, the Company discloses both FFO and AFFO and reconciles them to the most appropriate GAAP performance metric, which is net income. STORE Capital’s FFO and AFFO may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.
