LOS ANGELES--()--Hudson Pacific Properties, Inc. (“the Company,” or “Hudson Pacific”) (NYSE: HPP) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Net income attributable to common stockholders of $16.2 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to net income of $3.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, a year ago;
  • Funds From Operations (“FFO”), excluding specified items, of $71.6 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, compared to $75.3 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, a year ago;
  • Executed 803,618 square feet of leases with GAAP and cash rent growth of 22.7% and 16.8%, respectively, including an early renewal and expansion with Nutanix for 292,693 square feet in North San Jose;
  • Purchased 41,496 square feet of sound stages and production offices adjacent to Sunset Las Palmas Studios in Hollywood for $30.0 million before credits, prorations and closing costs;
  • Sold 9300 Wilshire in Beverly Hills for $13.8 million before credits, prorations and closing costs; and
  • Declared and paid a quarterly dividend of $0.25 per share on common stock.

“We had a strong second quarter, particularly in terms of leasing and building upon our foundation for long-term growth through prudent capital recycling,” said Victor Coleman, Hudson Pacific Properties’ Chairman and CEO. “Already standout West Coast market fundamentals continued to improve. We executed leases in excess of 800,000 square feet with 23% GAAP and 17% cash rent growth, including the early renewal and expansion of two of our largest tenants, Nutanix and Square, Inc. We have renewed or backfilled, or are in leases, LOIs or proposals on 76% of our 2018 and 48% of our 2019 expirations. We are also excited to report that we have signed a lease with Honey Science Corporation for 100% of our Fourth & Traction redevelopment, and we have very promising activity on the remainder of our priority large-block, lease-up assets.”

“Capital recycling was a highlight of our second quarter and remains at the forefront of our agenda in the third quarter, as we continue to position ourselves to pursue unique growth opportunities. We closed the sale of 9300 Wilshire in Beverly Hills, and purchased properties strategic to the continued expansion of Sunset Las Palmas Studios. We also completed the sale of the remaining Peninsula Office Park buildings in San Mateo. These transactions highlight our excellent execution and success in capitalizing on favorable market conditions to sell non-core assets, the net proceeds of which we can redeploy into higher-yielding, superior quality opportunities.”

Financial Results

The Company reported net income attributable to common stockholders of $16.2 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to net income attributable to common stockholders of $3.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2017.

FFO, excluding specified items, for the three months ended June 30, 2018 totaled $71.6 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, compared to FFO, excluding specified items, of $75.3 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, a year ago. Specified items for the second quarter of 2018 consisted of unrealized gains from changes in fair value on non-real estate investments of $0.9 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, with no specified items for the second quarter of 2017.

FFO, including specified items, for the three months ended June 30, 2018 totaled $72.5 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, compared to $75.3 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, a year ago.

Consolidated Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2018

Total revenue during the second quarter decreased 3.0% to $175.2 million from $180.5 million for the same quarter a year ago. Total operating expenses decreased 8.5% to $139.4 million from $152.4 million for the same quarter a year ago. As a result, income from operations increased 27.3% to $35.8 million from $28.1 million for the same quarter a year ago. The primary reasons for the changes in total revenue and operating expenses are discussed below in connection with the Company’s segment operating results.

Interest expense during the second quarter decreased 10.9% to $19.3 million from $21.7 million for the same quarter a year ago. The Company had $2.4 billion and $2.6 billion of notes payable at June 30, 2018 and June 30, 2017, respectively.

The Company had $1.9 million of gains on sale associated with the sale of 9300 Wilshire during the second quarter of 2018, with no gains on sale associated with dispositions during the second quarter of 2017.

Segment Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2018

Office Properties

Total revenue at the Company’s office properties decreased 5.0% to $158.6 million from $166.9 million for the same quarter a year ago. The decrease was primarily the result of a $3.9 million decrease in rental revenue to $129.7 million, a $3.1 million decrease in tenant recoveries to $22.0 million, and a $1.4 million decrease in parking and other revenue to $6.9 million. The decrease in rental revenue, tenant recoveries and parking and other revenue largely resulted from the Cisco and Robert Bosch lease terminations at Campus Center and Foothill Research Center, respectively, as well as the sales of Pinnacle I and Pinnacle II (sold November 16, 2017), Embarcadero Place (sold January 25, 2018), 2180 Sand Hill (sold March 1, 2018) and 9300 Wilshire (sold April 10, 2018).

Office property operating expenses decreased 2.8% to $53.9 million from $55.5 million for the same quarter a year ago. The decrease primarily resulted from the aforementioned lease terminations and asset sales.

Net operating income with respect to the Company’s 30 same-store office properties for the second quarter increased 1.7% on a GAAP basis and decreased 0.2% on a cash basis.

At June 30, 2018, the Company’s stabilized and in-service office portfolio was 93.6% and 89.7% leased, respectively. During the quarter, the Company executed 69 new and renewal leases totaling 803,618 square feet.

Studio Properties

Total revenue at the Company’s studio properties increased 21.8% to $16.6 million from $13.6 million for the same quarter a year ago, largely due to a $1.6 million increase in rental revenue to $10.7 million, a $0.4 million increase in tenant recoveries to $0.5 million, and a $0.9 million increase in other property-related revenue to $5.3 million. The increase in rental, tenant recoveries and other property-related revenue largely resulted from the acquisition of Sunset Las Palmas Studios (purchased in May 2017), as well as higher production activity at Sunset Bronson Studios. Total studio operating expenses increased 21.9% to $8.5 million from $7.0 million for the same quarter a year ago, also due to the Sunset Las Palmas Studios acquisition and higher production activity at Sunset Bronson Studios.

As of June 30, 2018, the trailing 12-month occupancy for the Company’s same-store studio portfolio decreased to 89.6% from 89.9% for the period ended June 30, 2017.

Balance Sheet

At June 30, 2018, the Company had total assets of $6.6 billion, including unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of $57.5 million. At June 30, 2018, the Company had $460.0 million of undrawn total capacity under its unsecured revolving credit facility.

Sold Remainder of San Francisco Peninsula Office Campus

On July 27, 2018, the Company sold the remaining six buildings (Buildings 1-5 and 7), totaling 447,739 square feet, of Peninsula Office Park in San Mateo for $210.0 million before credits, prorations and closing costs. The Company sold the fully vacant 63,050-square-foot Building 6 in January of this year for a total of $22.5 million before prorations, credits and closing costs. The Company used the net proceeds from this sale to repay the $140.0 million outstanding balance under its unsecured revolving credit facility, then for general corporate purposes.

2018 Outlook

The Company is revising its full-year 2018 FFO guidance to a range of $1.83 to $1.89 per diluted share, excluding specified items, compared to the prior full-year 2018 FFO guidance range of $1.87 to $1.95 per diluted share, excluding specified items. Specified items for full-year 2018 FFO guidance consist of the transaction-related expenses of $0.1 million and write-off of original issuance costs (i.e., deferred financing costs) of $0.4 million associated with the recast of the Company’s unsecured revolving credit facility and 5- and 7-year term loan facilities, both of which were identified as excluded items in the Company’s first quarter 2018 FFO, together with unrealized gains from changes in fair value on non-real estate investments of $0.9 million. This guidance also includes the impact of the Peninsula Office Park sale, the Honey Science Corporation lease’s deferred commencement at Fourth & Traction, and the early contribution of Westside Pavilion to the Company’s joint venture with Macerich, which collectively contribute to an $0.05 per diluted share decrease in the Company’s full-year 2018 FFO estimate.

As always, the full-year 2018 FFO estimates also reflect management’s view of current and future market conditions, including assumptions with respect to rental rates, occupancy levels and the earnings impact of events referenced in this press release, but otherwise excludes any impact from future unannounced or speculative acquisitions, dispositions, debt financings or repayments, recapitalizations, capital markets activity or similar matters. There can be no assurance that the actual results will not differ materially from this estimate.

Below are some of the assumptions the Company used in providing this guidance (dollars in thousands):

            Full Year 2018
Metric           Low           High
Growth in Same-Store Office property cash NOI(1)(2)(3)           4.0%           5.0%
Growth in Same-Store Studio property cash NOI(1)(2)           10.0%           11.0%
GAAP non-cash revenue (straight-line rent and above/below-market rents)(4)           $41,500           $51,500
GAAP non-cash expense (above/below-market ground rent)           $(2,900)           $(2,900)
General and administrative expenses(5)           $(58,000)           $(63,000)
Interest expense, net(6)           $(81,500)           $(84,500)
FFO attributable to non-controlling interests           $(19,500)           $(23,500)
Weighted average common stock/units outstanding—diluted(7)           157,150,000           158,150,000
                   
(1)     Same-store is defined as the 29 office properties or two studio properties, as applicable, owned and included in the Company’s stabilized portfolio as of January 1, 2017, and anticipated to still be owned and included in the stabilized portfolio through December 31, 2018.
(2) Please see non-GAAP information below for definition of cash NOI.
(3) This estimate excludes approximately $4.2 million of material one-time tenant improvement cost reimbursements received in 2017, which were likewise excluded from prior year (2017) guidance for purposes of same-store office property cash NOI growth estimates. Please see the Same-Store Analysis in the Company’s Fourth Quarter 2017 Supplemental Operating and Financial Information report for further detail regarding these reimbursements.
(4) Includes non-cash straight-line rent associated with the studio properties.
(5) Includes non-cash compensation expense, which the Company estimates at $17,500 in 2018.
(6) Includes amortization of deferred financing costs and loan discounts, which the Company estimates at $6,000 in 2018.
(7) Diluted shares represent ownership in the Company through shares of common stock, OP Units and other convertible or exchangeable instruments. The weighted average fully diluted common stock/units outstanding for 2018 includes an estimate for dilution impact of stock grants to the Company’s executives under its 2016, 2017 and 2018 outperformance programs, as well as performance-based awards under the Company’s special one-time retention award grants. This estimate is based on the projected award potential of such programs as of the end of such periods, as calculated in accordance with the Accounting Standards Codification 260, Earnings Per Share.
 

The Company does not provide a reconciliation for non-GAAP estimates on a forward-looking basis, including the information under “2018 Outlook” above, where it is unable to provide a meaningful or accurate calculation or estimation of reconciling items and the information is not available without unreasonable effort. This is due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting the timing and/or amount of various items that would impact net income attributable to common stockholders per diluted share, which is the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measure. This includes, for example, acquisition costs and other non-core items that have not yet occurred, are out of the Company’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted. For the same reasons, the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information. Forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures provided without the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures may vary materially from the corresponding GAAP financial measures.

The White Paper defines FFO as net income or loss calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), excluding extraordinary items, as defined by GAAP, gains and losses from sales of depreciable real estate and impairment write-downs associated with depreciable real estate, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs and depreciation of non-real estate assets) and after adjustment for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The calculation of FFO includes the amortization of deferred revenue related to tenant-funded tenant improvements and excludes the depreciation of the related tenant improvement assets. We believe that FFO is a useful supplemental measure of our operating performance. The exclusion from FFO of gains and losses from the sale of operating real estate assets allows investors and analysts to readily identify the operating results of the assets that form the core of our activity and assists in comparing those operating results between periods. Also, because FFO is generally recognized as the industry standard for reporting the operations of REITs, it facilitates comparisons of operating performance to other REITs. However, other REITs may use different methodologies to calculate FFO, and accordingly, our FFO may not be comparable to all other REITs.
 
Implicit in historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP is the assumption that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors and analysts have considered presentations of operating results for real estate companies using historical cost accounting alone to be insufficient. Because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, we believe that FFO along with the required GAAP presentations provides a more complete measurement of our performance relative to our competitors and a more appropriate basis on which to make decisions involving operating, financing and investing activities than the required GAAP presentations alone would provide. We use FFO per share to calculate annual cash bonuses for certain employees.
 
FFO should not be viewed as an alternative measure of our operating performance because it does not reflect either depreciation and amortization costs or the level of capital expenditures and leasing costs necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties, which are significant economic costs and could materially impact our results from operations.
 
(2) We adopted ASU 2016-01 on January 1, 2018, at which point we elected the measurement alternative. This standard requires us to mark the investment in shares to fair value whenever fair value is readily available or observable. During the second quarter of 2018, we recognized a $0.9 million unrealized gain.

(1)     We evaluate performance based upon property NOI from continuing operations. NOI is not a measure of operating results or cash flows from operating activities as measured by GAAP and should not be considered an alternative to income from continuing operations, as an indication of our performance, or as an alternative to cash flows as a measure of liquidity, or our ability to make distributions. All companies may not calculate NOI in the same manner. We consider NOI to be a useful performance measure to investors and management because when compared across periods, NOI reflects the revenues and expenses directly associated with owning and operating our properties and the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs, providing a perspective not immediately apparent from income from continuing operations. We calculate NOI as net income (loss) excluding corporate general and administrative expenses, depreciation and amortization, impairments, gains/losses on sales of real estate, interest expense, transaction-related expenses and other non-operating items. We define NOI as operating revenues (including rental revenues, other property-related revenue, tenant recoveries and other operating revenues), less property-level operating expenses (which includes external management fees, if any, and property-level general and administrative expenses). NOI on a cash basis is NOI on a GAAP basis, adjusted to exclude the effect of straight-line rent and other non-cash adjustments required by GAAP. We believe that NOI on a cash basis is helpful to investors as an additional measure of operating performance because it eliminates straight-line rent and other non-cash adjustments to revenue and expenses.
