Inland Real Estate Corporation Announces First Quarter 2015 Results

− FFO per Share and Recurring FFO per Share Increase 21.7% and 8.7%, Respectively −

OAK BROOK, Ill.--()--Inland Real Estate Corporation (NYSE: IRC), a publicly traded real estate investment trust that owns and operates high-quality, necessity and value-based retail centers primarily in select markets within the Central and Southeastern United States, today announced financial and operational results for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

Highlights

  • Funds from Operations (FFO) per weighted average common share (basic and diluted) was $0.28 for the three months ended March 31, 2015, an increase of 21.7% over $0.23 for the first quarter of 2014.
  • Recurring FFO (defined as FFO adjusted for the impact of lease termination income, certain gains and non-cash impairment charges of non-depreciable real estate, net of taxes) per weighted average common share (basic and diluted) was $0.25 for the three months ended March 31, 2015, an increase of 8.7% over $0.23 for the first quarter of 2014.
  • Same-store net operating income (NOI) for the consolidated portfolio increased 7.6% for the quarter, over the comparable period in 2014.
  • Total portfolio leased occupancy was 95.0%, the sixth consecutive quarter with a rate of 95% or above.
  • Executed 80 leases within the total portfolio for 533,343 square feet of leasable space, an increase in square feet leased of nearly 46% over prior year quarter and nearly 31% over the average of the trailing four quarters.
  • Average base rent for new and renewal leases signed in the total portfolio increased by 19.4% and 8.8%, respectively, over expiring average rents.
  • IRC acquired the Westbury Square shopping center in Huntsville, Alabama for $23.4 million in cash.
  • IRC’s joint venture with PGGM acquired the Argonne Village shopping center in the Minneapolis-St. Paul MSA for $26.3 million during the quarter and the Cedar Center North retail center in the Cleveland MSA for $15.4 million after the close of the quarter.

“We begin 2015 in a strong position, reporting solid first quarter results that represent continued execution of our strategic plan to further enhance the growth potential and value of our company,” said Mark Zalatoris, president and chief executive officer of Inland Real Estate Corporation. “Recurring FFO per share of $0.25 increased 8.7% over the prior year quarter, primarily the result of higher consolidated same store NOI and equity in earnings of unconsolidated joint ventures, which were driven by robust leasing activity and rent increases that reflect strong retailer demand for space in our centers. We continue to benefit from our internal and external growth initiatives, as we diversify and grow our portfolio through acquisitions, development joint ventures and redevelopment opportunities.”

Financial Results for the Quarter

FFO attributable to common stockholders was $28.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, compared to $23.2 million for the first quarter of 2014. On a per share basis, FFO was $0.28 (basic and diluted) for the first quarter of 2015, compared to $0.23 (basic and diluted) for the same period of 2014. The increases in FFO and FFO per share were primarily due to higher net operating income from the consolidated same store portfolio, increased lease termination income, and increased equity in earnings of unconsolidated joint ventures.

Recurring FFO (defined as FFO adjusted for the impact of lease termination income, certain gains and non-cash impairment charges of non-depreciable real estate, net of taxes) was $25.2 million for the first quarter of 2015, compared to $23.1 million for the prior year quarter. On a per share basis, Recurring FFO was $0.25 (basic and diluted) for the three months ended March 31, 2015, compared to $0.23 for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The increases in Recurring FFO and Recurring FFO per share were due to the same items that impacted FFO, excluding the impact of lease termination income.

Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $1.0 million, compared to net income of $13.2 million for the first quarter of 2014. On a per common share basis, net loss attributable to common stockholders (basic and diluted) was $0.01 for the first quarter of 2015, compared to net income per common share of $0.13 (basic and diluted) for the prior year quarter. Net income for the quarter decreased year over year primarily due to impairments recorded during the quarter on assets currently under contract for sale, and lower gains on sales of investment properties compared to the first quarter of 2014. The decrease was partially offset by the same items that impacted FFO, plus lower depreciation and amortization expense.

Reconciliations of FFO and Recurring FFO to net income attributable to common stockholders, calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, as well as FFO and Recurring FFO per share to net income attributable to common stockholders per share, are provided at the end of this news release.

Portfolio Performance

Consolidated same-store NOI was $29.3 million for the quarter, representing an increase of 7.6% over the first quarter of 2014. The increase in same-store NOI was primarily driven by increased rental income from gains in occupancy and lower property operating expenses, compared to the first quarter of last year. Property operating expenses decreased due to lower snow removal costs year over year. The corresponding decline in tenant recovery income was partially offset by income true-up adjustments the Company recorded upon completion of annual tenant reconciliations.

Same-store financial occupancy was 93.0% for the consolidated portfolio, representing an increase of 60 basis points over one year ago.

The Company evaluates its overall portfolio by analyzing the operating performance of properties that have been owned and operated for the same three-month period during each year. A total of 94 of the Company’s investment properties within the consolidated portfolio satisfied this criterion during the period and are referred to as “same-store” properties. Same-store NOI is a supplemental non-GAAP measure used to monitor the performance of the Company’s investment properties.

A reconciliation of consolidated same-store NOI to net income attributable to common stockholders, calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, is provided at the end of this news release.

Leasing

For the quarter, the Company executed 80 leases within the total portfolio aggregating 533,343 square feet of gross leasable area (GLA). Total leases executed included:

  • Fifty-nine renewal leases comprising 350,148 square feet, with an average rental rate of $16.44 per square foot, representing an increase of 8.8% over the average expiring rent;
  • Eleven new leases comprising 47,780 square feet, with an average rental rate of $19.07 per square foot, representing an increase of 19.4% over the expiring rent; and
  • Ten non-comparable leases comprising 135,415 square feet, with an average rental rate of $11.32 per square foot. The Company defines non-comparable leases as leases signed for expansion square footage or for space in which there was no former tenant in place for a period of twelve months or more.

On a blended basis, the 70 new and renewal leases executed during the quarter had an average rental rate of $16.75 per square foot, representing an increase of 10.2% over the average expiring rent. The calculations of former and new average base rents are adjusted for rent abatements on the included leases.

For the total portfolio as of March 31, 2015, leased occupancy was 95.0% and financial occupancy was 93.0%, representing decreases of 20 basis points and 50 basis points, respectively, over one year ago. The decreases are primarily due to vacancies at Joliet Commons in Joliet, Illinois, and Dunkirk Square in Maple Grove, Minnesota, which are related to redevelopment projects currently underway at those properties. Leased occupancy is defined as the percentage of total gross leasable area for which there is a signed lease regardless of whether the tenant is currently obligated to pay rent under the lease agreement. Financial occupancy is defined as the percentage of total gross leasable area for which a tenant is obligated to pay rent under the terms of the lease agreement, regardless of the actual use or occupation by that tenant of the area being leased, and excludes tenants in abatement periods.

EBITDA, Balance Sheet, Liquidity and Market Value

The Company reported Recurring EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), which is EBITDA adjusted for the impact of lease termination income, certain gains and non-cash impairment charges of non-depreciable real estate, of $39.3 million for the first quarter of 2015, compared to $36.7 million for the first quarter of 2014.

Definitions and reconciliations of EBITDA and Recurring EBITDA to net income attributable to Inland Real Estate Corporation are provided at the end of this news release.

Recurring EBITDA coverage of interest expense was 4.2 times for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 compared to 3.3 times for the first quarter of 2014. The Company has provided EBITDA and related non-GAAP coverage ratios because it believes EBITDA and the related ratios provide useful supplemental measures in evaluating the Company’s operating performance because expenses that may not be indicative of operating performance are excluded.

As of March 31, 2015, the Company had an equity market capitalization (common shares) of $1.1 billion, outstanding preferred stock of $210.0 million (at face value), and total debt outstanding of $1.0 billion (including the pro-rata share of debt in unconsolidated joint ventures), for a total market capitalization of approximately $2.3 billion. The Company’s debt-to-total market capitalization was 44.3% as of March 31, 2015. Approximately 54.5% of total debt bears interest at fixed rates. As of March 31, 2015, the weighted average interest rate on the fixed rate debt was 5.09% and the overall weighted average interest rate, including variable rate debt, was 3.59%.

Acquisitions

On March 10, 2015, the Company acquired for its wholly-owned portfolio the 114,904-square-foot Westbury Square community center in Huntsville, Alabama, for $23.4 million in cash. The 100% leased center is anchored by Stein Mart, TJMaxx and Michaels, and features a vibrant blend of national and local retailers, restaurants and service providers, including Jimmy John’s, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Jenny Craig, and BB&T.

Dispositions

On February 26, 2015, the Company sold a 4,305-square-foot outlot currently leased to Chase Bank at the Mokena Marketplace shopping center in Mokena, Ill., for $5.3 million, and recorded a gain on sale of $1.4 million.

Joint Venture Activity

The Company has formed joint ventures with institutions and established developers to advance its strategic goal to further enhance the size, quality and diversification of its operating platform.

On February 2, 2015, the Company’s joint venture with PGGM purchased the 109,869-square-foot Argonne Village neighborhood shopping center in Lakeville, Minn., a suburb of Minneapolis, for $26.3 million in cash. Argonne Village is anchored by a 71,800-square-foot Cub Foods grocery store, with a complementary mix of co-tenants that includes Dollar Tree, Taco Bell, Starbucks, FedEx Kinko’s, Little Caesars Pizza, Great Clips, and others.

In February, the Company’s development joint venture with North American Real Estate purchased for $4.5 million a land parcel in Schaumburg, Ill., which it expects to develop into multi-tenant retail.

After the close of the quarter in April, the Company's joint venture with PGGM acquired the 61,400-square-foot Cedar Center North retail center in the Cleveland suburb of South Euclid, Ohio, for a purchase price of $15.4 million, excluding closing costs and adjustments and subject to future earnout payments. The center is 90% leased to PetSmart, Panera, Starbucks, Five Guys, Chipotle, and other national and local retailers.

Distributions

In January, February, March and April of 2015, the Company paid a monthly cash dividend of $0.169271 per share on the outstanding shares of its 8.125% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (Series A Preferred Stock), and a monthly cash dividend of $0.144791667 per share on the outstanding shares of its 6.95% Series B Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (Series B Preferred Stock). In April, the Company declared a cash dividend of $0.169271 per share on the outstanding shares of its Series A Preferred Stock, and a cash dividend of $0.144791667 per share on the outstanding shares of its Series B Preferred Stock, both dividends payable on May 15, 2015, to Series A and Series B Preferred Stockholders of record at the close of business on May 1, 2015.

In January, February, March and April of 2015, the Company paid monthly cash distributions to Common Stockholders of $0.0475 per common share. In April, the Company declared a cash distribution of $0.0475 per common share, payable on May 18, 2015, to common stockholders of record at the close of business on April 30, 2015.

Guidance

For fiscal year 2015, the Company expects Recurring FFO per common share (basic and diluted) to range from $0.96 to $1.00. The Company’s guidance incorporates assumptions for an increase in consolidated same-store NOI to range from 2% to 3%, and consolidated same-store financial occupancy at year-end 2015 to range from 92.5% to 93.5%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

We consider FFO a widely accepted and appropriate measure of performance for a REIT. FFO provides a supplemental measure to compare our performance and operations to other REITs. Due to certain unique operating characteristics of real estate companies, NAREIT has promulgated a standard known as FFO, which it believes more accurately reflects the operating performance of a REIT such as ours. As defined by NAREIT, FFO means net income computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of operating property, plus depreciation and amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated entities in which the REIT holds an interest. In addition, NAREIT has further clarified the FFO definition to add-back impairment write-downs of depreciable real estate or of investments in unconsolidated entities that are driven by measurable decreases in the fair value of depreciable real estate. Under U.S. GAAP, impairment charges reduce net income. While impairment charges are added back in the calculation of FFO, we caution that because impairments to the value of any property are typically based on reductions in estimated future undiscounted cash flows compared to current carrying value, declines in the undiscounted cash flows which led to the impairment charges reflect declines in property operating performance that may be permanent. We have adopted the NAREIT definition for computing FFO. Recurring FFO includes adjustments to FFO for the impact of lease termination income, certain gains and non-cash impairment charges of non-depreciable real estate, net of taxes recorded in comparable periods, in order to present the performance of our core portfolio operations. Management uses the calculation of FFO and Recurring FFO for several reasons. Recurring FFO per weighted average common share outstanding is used in the employment agreements we have with our executives to determine a portion of incentive compensation payable to them. Additionally, we use FFO and Recurring FFO to compare our performance to that of other REITs in our peer group. The calculation of FFO and Recurring FFO may vary from entity to entity because capitalization and expense policies tend to vary from entity to entity. Items that are capitalized do not impact FFO and Recurring FFO whereas items that are expensed reduce FFO and Recurring FFO. Consequently, our presentation of FFO and Recurring FFO may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures presented by other REITs. FFO and Recurring FFO do not represent cash flows from operations as defined by U.S. GAAP, are not indicative of cash available to fund cash flow needs and liquidity, including our ability to pay distributions, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, for purposes of evaluating our operating performance. The following table reflects our FFO and Recurring FFO for the periods presented, reconciled to net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders for these periods:

Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (unaudited)

(in thousands, except per share data)

 

EBITDA is defined as earnings (losses) from operations excluding: (1) interest expense; (2) income tax benefit or expenses; (3) depreciation and amortization expense; and (4) gains (loss) on non-operating property. We believe EBITDA is useful to us and to an investor as a supplemental measure in evaluating our financial performance because it excludes expenses that we believe may not be indicative of our operating performance. By excluding interest expense, EBITDA measures our financial performance regardless of how we finance our operations and capital structure. By excluding depreciation and amortization expense, we believe we can more accurately assess the performance of our portfolio. Because EBITDA is calculated before recurring cash charges such as interest expense and taxes and is not adjusted for capital expenditures or other recurring cash requirements, it does not reflect the amount of capital needed to maintain our properties nor does it reflect trends in interest costs due to changes in interest rates or increases in borrowing. EBITDA should be considered only as a supplement to net earnings and may be calculated differently by other REITs.

 

We believe EBITDA is an important supplemental non-GAAP measure. We utilize EBITDA to calculate our interest expense coverage ratio, which equals EBITDA divided by total interest expense. We believe that using EBITDA, which excludes the effect of non-operating expenses and non-cash charges, all of which are based on historical cost and may be of limited significance in evaluating current performance, facilitates comparison of core operating profitability between periods and between REITs, particularly in light of the use of EBITDA by a seemingly large number of REITs in their reports on Forms 10-Q and 10-K. We believe that investors should consider EBITDA in conjunction with net income and the other required U.S. GAAP measures of our performance to improve their understanding of our operating results. Recurring EBITDA includes adjustments to EBITDA for the impact of lease termination income and non-cash impairment charges in comparable periods in order to present the performance of our core portfolio operations.

Same Store Net Operating Income (unaudited)

(in thousands, except per share data)

 

Same store net operating income, which is the net operating income of properties owned during the same periods during each year ("same store" properties), is considered a non-GAAP financial measure because it does not include straight-line rental income, amortization of lease intangibles, lease termination income, interest, depreciation, amortization and bad debt expense. We provide same store net operating income as another metric to compare the results of property operations for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014. We also provide a reconciliation of these amounts to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure, net income attributable to common stockholders.

Pro Rata Consolidated Information (unaudited)

(in thousands, except per share data)

 

These schedules present certain Non-GAAP pro-rata consolidated information as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2015. These schedules are considered Non-GAAP because they include financial information related to consolidated joint ventures with an adjustment for the portion related to noncontrolling interests and unconsolidated joint ventures accounted for under the equity method of accounting. Because we incur expenses to manage properties that are not on our balance sheet, we believe providing this information allows investors to better compare our overall performance, size and operating metrics to those of other REITs in our peer group. The Company believes this Non-GAAP information provides supplementary information that is both useful to and has been requested by investors and analysts. Investors should not consider Non-GAAP information as a substitute for, or as superior to, U.S. GAAP information. Rather, Non-GAAP information may provide useful information in addition to information presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
