Innovative Industrial Properties Reports Second Quarter 2017 Results

SAN DIEGO--()--Innovative Industrial Properties, Inc. (NYSE: IIPR) (the "Company") announced today results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, the second full quarter since the Company commenced real estate operations and completed its initial public offering in December 2016.

Second Quarter 2017 Highlights

  • During the second quarter 2017, the Company generated total revenues of approximately $1.3 million, reflecting the rent paid by PharmaCann LLC at the Company's medical-use cannabis cultivation facility located in New York.
  • In May 2017, the Company purchased the property located at 9220 Alaking Court in Capitol Heights, Maryland (the "Alaking Property") under development for use as a medical cannabis cultivation facility, and concurrently entered into a long-term, triple-net lease with tenant Holistic Industries LLC (“Holistic”) for the entire property.
  • The Company paid its first quarterly dividend of $0.15 per share on July 14, 2017 to stockholders of record as of June 30, 2017.
  • The Company promoted Catherine Hastings to Chief Financial Officer, in addition to Ms. Hastings continuing to serve as the Company's Chief Accounting Officer and Treasurer.

Acquisition Activity and Pipeline

As previously reported, in May 2017, the Company purchased the Alaking Property for approximately $8.2 million (including $185,000 in transaction costs), with an additional $3 million payable to the seller upon completion of certain development milestones and an additional $4 million payable to the tenant as reimbursement for certain tenant improvements. Pursuant to the lease agreement with Holistic, the initial annualized base rent, after a three month rent abatement period, is subject to a rent reserve and is expected to be 15% of the sum of the initial purchase price (excluding transaction costs), the additional seller reimbursement and the reimbursed tenant improvements. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the seller completed the agreed-to development milestones at the Alaking Property, and on August 1, 2017, the Company paid the additional reimbursement of $3 million to the seller. As a result, Holistic's initial annualized base rent at the Alaking Property increased by $450,000 (15% of the $3 million reimbursement) to $1.65 million.

As of August 9, 2017, the Company had identified and was in various stages of reviewing approximately $100 million of additional potential properties for acquisition, which amount is estimated based on sellers' asking prices for the properties, ongoing negotiations with sellers, the Company's assessment of the values of such properties after taking into account the current and expected lease revenue, operating history, age and condition of the property, and other relevant factors. The Company cannot provide assurances that it will complete the purchase of the properties in the Company's pipeline on the terms described herein, or at all.

Financial Results

The Company generated total revenues of approximately $1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, and total revenues of approximately $2.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, reflecting the rent paid by PharmaCann at the Company's medical-use cannabis cultivation facility located in New York, which was one of two properties that the Company owned as of June 30, 2017. Base rent under the lease with Holistic for the Alaking Property is subject to an initial rent abatement of three months, and as such no rental revenues were generated from the Alaking Property during the three and six months ended June 30, 2017. The Company began real estate operations after closing its initial public offering and purchasing its New York property in December 2016.

For the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company recorded a net loss and net loss per basic and diluted share of ($422,000) and ($0.13), respectively; funds from operations ("FFO") and FFO per basic share of ($247,000) and ($0.07), respectively; and adjusted funds from operations ("AFFO") and AFFO per diluted share of $471,000 and $0.13, respectively.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company recorded a net loss and net loss per basic and diluted share of ($1.0) million and ($0.31), respectively; FFO and FFO per basic share of ($677,000) and ($0.20), respectively; and AFFO and AFFO per diluted share of $811,000 and $0.23, respectively.

A complete reconciliation containing adjustments from GAAP net loss available to common stockholders to FFO and AFFO and definitions of terms are included at the end of this release.

FFO and FFO per share are operating performance measures adopted by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. ("NAREIT"). NAREIT defines FFO as the most commonly accepted and reported measure of a REIT's operating performance equal to "net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus depreciation and amortization related to real estate properties, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures."

Management believes that net income (loss), as defined by GAAP, is the most appropriate earnings measurement. However, management believes FFO and FFO per share to be important supplemental measures of a REIT's performance because they provide an understanding of the operating performance of the Company's properties without giving effect to certain significant non-cash items, primarily depreciation expense. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. However, real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions. The Company believes that by excluding the effect of depreciation, FFO and FFO per share can facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods. The Company reports FFO and FFO per share because these measures are observed by management to also be the predominant measures used by the REIT industry and by industry analysts to evaluate REITs and because FFO per share is consistently reported, discussed, and compared by research analysts in their notes and publications about REITs. For these reasons, management has deemed it appropriate to disclose and discuss FFO and FFO per share.

Management believes that AFFO and AFFO per share are also appropriate supplemental measures of a REIT's operating performance. The Company calculates AFFO by adding to FFO certain non-cash and non-recurring expenses, consisting of non-cash stock-based compensation expense and severance expense.

The Company's computation of FFO and AFFO may differ from the methodology for calculating FFO and AFFO utilized by other equity REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such REITs. Further, FFO and AFFO do not represent cash flow available for management's discretionary use. FFO and AFFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of the Company's financial performance or to cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of the Company's liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund the Company's cash needs, including the Company's ability to pay dividends or make distributions. FFO and AFFO should be considered only as supplements to net income (loss) computed in accordance with GAAP as measures of the Company's operations.
