Urban Edge Properties Reports Second Quarter 2019 Results

NEW YORK--()--Urban Edge Properties (NYSE:UE) (the "Company") today announced its results for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Financial Results(1)(2)

  • Generated net income of $28.1 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, for the quarter compared to net income of $59.8 million, or $0.47 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2018 and $56.0 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $82.8 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2018.
  • Generated Funds from Operations applicable to diluted common shareholders ("FFO") of $57.6 million, or $0.45 per share, for the quarter compared to $39.6 million, or $0.31 per share, for the second quarter of 2018 and $94.1 million, or $0.74 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $83.7 million, or $0.66 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2018.
  • Generated FFO as Adjusted of $37.4 million, or $0.30 per share, for the quarter compared to $41.6 million, or $0.33 per share, for the second quarter of 2018 and $74.6 million, or $0.59 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $82.9 million, or $0.65 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

Operating Results(1)(3)

  • Reported a decline in same-property cash Net Operating Income ("NOI") including properties in redevelopment of 0.3% compared to the second quarter of 2018 and a decline of 0.2% compared to the six months ended June 30, 2018. Excluding the impact of anchor bankruptcies, same-property cash NOI including properties in redevelopment for the quarter and for the six months ended June 30, 2019 would have increased by 4.4% and 4.2%, respectively.
  • Reported a decline in same-property cash NOI excluding properties in redevelopment of 1.8% compared to the second quarter of 2018 and of 1.9% compared to the six months ended June 30, 2018. Excluding the impact of anchor bankruptcies, same-property cash NOI excluding properties in redevelopment for the quarter and for the six months ended June 30, 2019 would have increased by 2.8% and 2.4%, respectively.
  • Bankruptcy settlement proceeds of $0.8 million received during the second quarter are excluded from same-property cash NOI and FFO as Adjusted.
  • Reported same-property portfolio occupancy of 92.5%, a decrease of 190 basis points compared to March 31, 2019 and a decrease of 540 basis points compared to June 30, 2018. During the second quarter, two spaces previously occupied by Kmart totaling approximately 225,000 sf were recaptured.
  • Reported consolidated portfolio occupancy of 92.1%, a decrease of 180 basis points compared to March 31, 2019 and a decrease of 510 basis points compared to June 30, 2018, primarily due to anchor bankruptcies.
  • Executed 22 new leases, renewals and options totaling 362,000 square feet ("sf") during the quarter. Same-space leases totaled 362,000 sf and generated average rent spreads of 12.9% on a GAAP basis and 6.5% on a cash basis.

“2019 is a transition year for our company as we execute on our strategy to drive long term growth,” said Jeff Olson, Chairman and CEO. “Our results reflect the temporary loss of income from a handful of retailers including Toys "R" Us and Kmart. We are confident these spaces will be replaced with leading discounters, grocers, fitness clubs, entertainment concepts and other uses resulting in significant increases to tenant quality, occupancy, same-property NOI and earnings growth in 2020 and beyond. We look forward to hosting an investor day later this year to provide details on the leasing, redevelopment, acquisition and disposition initiatives that will drive growth over the next several years.”

Development and Redevelopment

During the second quarter, the Company invested $18.1 million in redevelopment projects and completed the anchor retenanting at Woodbridge Commons in Woodbridge, NJ and the ShopRite expansion at Rockaway River Commons in Rockaway, NJ.

In July 2019, Burlington opened its new 43,000 sf store at Bergen Town Center. Burlington joins other recently opened stores and restaurants, including Express, Lands' End, Ruth's Chris, Sticky's Finger Joint and Cava Grill. Chopt is scheduled to open in August.

The Company has $120.8 million of active redevelopment projects under way, which are expected to generate a 7% unleveraged yield. Approximately $20.9 million of that amount remains to be funded.

The Company is advancing its plans to redevelop and further densify its flagship assets including Bergen Town Center, Bruckner Commons, Hudson Mall, and Yonkers Gateway Center.

Anchor Leasing(6)

The Company has 12 anchor (>30,000 sf) vacancies accounting for approximately 790,000 sf of gross leasable area with a market rent of approximately $19 million a year. Eleven of these vacancies occurred in the last year resulting from the Toys “R” Us, Sears (Kmart), National Wholesale Liquidators and Fallas bankruptcies.

The Company has executed leases with Burlington for two of these spaces which are expected to commence rent during the fourth quarter of 2019. The Company expects to lease three of these spaces during the third quarter and is in active discussions to lease four other spaces. The remaining three vacancies are situated at Bruckner Commons in the Bronx and Hudson Mall in Jersey City, where the spaces will likely be incorporated into larger scale redevelopments, and at Las Catalinas in Puerto Rico.

Disposition Activity

The Company sold its property in Glen Burnie, MD for $16.2 million during the quarter and its property in Springfield, MA for $10.2 million in July 2019, bringing year-to-date total sales to $45.0 million. Nine additional non-core properties are under contract or letter of intent to sell for approximately $140 million. The weighted average cap rate on properties sold and under contract or letter of intent to sell is approximately 7.3%. Proceeds are expected to be used for acquisitions, redevelopment and potentially a special dividend.

Balance Sheet Highlights at June 30, 2019(1)(4)(5)

  • Total market capitalization of approximately $3.8 billion comprised of 127.4 million fully-diluted common shares valued at $2.2 billion and $1.6 billion of debt.
  • Net debt to total market capitalization of 29%.
  • Net debt to Adjusted Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization for real estate ("EBITDAre") of 5.1x.
  • $463.6 million of cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash.

Financing Activity

Subsequent to June 30, 2019, the Company amended its $600 million revolving credit facility, extending the maturity date from March 2021 to January 2024 with two six-month extension options. The amended facility contains terms and conditions materially consistent with the prior agreement except that borrowing rates are generally lower by 5 basis points depending on the Company's leverage level. No amounts have been drawn on the credit facility.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses certain non-GAAP performance measures, in addition to the primary GAAP presentations, as we believe these measures improve the understanding of the Company's operational results. We continually evaluate the usefulness, relevance, limitations, and calculation of our reported non-GAAP performance measures to determine how best to provide relevant information to the investing public, and thus such reported measures are subject to change. The Company's non-GAAP performance measures have limitations as they do not include all items of income and expense that affect operations, and accordingly, should always be considered as supplemental financial results. The following non-GAAP measures are commonly used by the Company and investing public to understand and evaluate our operating results and performance:

  • FFO: The Company believes FFO is a useful, supplemental measure of its operating performance that is a recognized metric used extensively by the real estate industry and, in particular REITs. FFO, as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("Nareit") and the Company, is net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of depreciable real estate and land when connected to the main business of a REIT, impairments on depreciable real estate or land related to a REIT's main business and rental property depreciation and amortization expense. The Company believes that financial analysts, investors and shareholders are better served by the presentation of comparable period operating results generated from FFO primarily because it excludes the assumption that the value of real estate assets diminish predictably. FFO does not represent cash flows from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indication of our performance, and is not indicative of cash flow as a measure of liquidity or our ability to make cash distributions.
  • FFO as Adjusted: The Company provides disclosure of FFO as Adjusted because it believes it is a useful supplemental measure of its core operating performance that facilitates comparability of historical financial periods. FFO as Adjusted is calculated by making certain adjustments to FFO to account for items the Company does not believe are representative of ongoing core operating results, including non-comparable revenues and expenses. The Company's method of calculating FFO as Adjusted may be different from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs.
  • Cash NOI: The Company uses cash NOI internally to make investment and capital allocation decisions and to compare the unlevered performance of our properties to our peers. The Company believes cash NOI is useful to investors as a performance measure because, when compared across periods, cash NOI reflects the impact on operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs and acquisition and disposition activity on an unleveraged basis, providing perspective not immediately apparent from net income. The Company calculates cash NOI using net income as defined by GAAP reflecting only those income and expense items that are incurred at the property level, adjusted for non-cash rental income and expense, and income or expenses that we do not believe are representative of ongoing operating results, if any. In addition, the Company uses cash NOI margin, calculated as cash NOI divided by total revenue, which the Company believes is useful to investors for similar reasons.
  • Same-property Cash NOI: The Company provides disclosure of cash NOI on a same-property basis, which includes the results of properties that were owned and operated for the entirety of the reporting periods being compared totaling 82 properties for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Information provided on a same-property basis excludes properties under development, redevelopment or that involve anchor repositioning where a substantial portion of the gross leasable area ("GLA") is taken out of service and also excludes properties acquired or sold during the periods being compared. As such, same-property cash NOI assists in eliminating disparities in net income due to the development, redevelopment, acquisition or disposition of properties during the periods presented, and thus provides a more consistent performance measure for the comparison of the operating performance of the Company's properties. While there is judgment surrounding changes in designations, a property is removed from the same-property pool when it is designated as a redevelopment property because it is undergoing significant renovation or retenanting pursuant to a formal plan that is expected to have a significant impact on its operating income. A development or redevelopment property is moved back to the same-property pool once a substantial portion of the NOI growth expected from the development or redevelopment is reflected in both the current and comparable prior year period, generally one year after at least 80% of the expected NOI from the project is realized on a cash basis. Acquisitions are moved into the same-property pool once we have owned the property for the entirety of the comparable periods and the property is not under significant development or redevelopment. The Company has also provided disclosure of cash NOI on a same-property basis adjusted to include redevelopment properties. Same-property cash NOI may include other adjustments as detailed in the Reconciliation of Net Income to cash NOI and same-property cash NOI included in the tables accompanying this press release.
  • EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre: EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre are supplemental, non-GAAP measures utilized by us in various financial ratios. The White Paper on EBITDAre, approved by Nareit's Board of Governors in September 2017, defines EBITDAre as net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), adjusted for interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, losses and gains on the disposition of depreciated property, impairment write-downs of depreciated property and investments in unconsolidated joint ventures, and adjustments to reflect the entity's share of EBITDAre of unconsolidated joint ventures. EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre are presented to assist investors in the evaluation of REITs, as a measure of the Company's operational performance as they exclude various items that do not relate to or are not indicative of our operating performance and because they approximate key performance measures in our debt covenants. Accordingly, the Company believes that the use of EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre, as opposed to income before income taxes, in various ratios provides meaningful performance measures related to the Company's ability to meet various coverage tests for the stated periods. Adjusted EBITDAre may include other adjustments not indicative of operating results as detailed in the Reconciliation of Net Income to EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre included in the tables accompanying this press release. The Company also presents the ratio of net debt (net of cash) to annualized Adjusted EBITDAre as of June 30, 2019, and net debt (net of cash) to total market capitalization, which it believes is useful to investors as a supplemental measure in evaluating the Company's balance sheet leverage. The presentation of EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre is consistent with EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as presented in prior periods.

The Company believes net income is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to the non-GAAP performance measures outlined above. Reconciliations of these measures to net income have been provided in the tables accompanying this press release.

Operating Metrics

The Company presents certain operating metrics related to our properties, including occupancy, leasing activity and rental rates. Operating metrics are used by the Company and are useful to investors in facilitating an understanding of the operational performance for our properties.

Occupancy metrics represent the percentage of occupied gross leasable area based on executed leases (including properties in development and redevelopment) and includes leases signed, but for which rent has not yet commenced. Same-property portfolio occupancy includes properties that have been owned and operated for the entirety of the reporting periods being compared totaling 82 properties for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Occupancy metrics presented for the Company's same-property portfolio excludes properties under development, redevelopment or that involve anchor repositioning where a substantial portion of the gross leasable area is taken out of service and also excludes properties acquired within the past 12 months or properties sold during the periods being compared.

Executed new leases, renewals and exercised options are presented on a same-space basis. Same-space leases represent those leases signed on spaces for which there was a previous lease.

(1)

The three and six months ended June 30, 2019 reflect real estate impairment losses, offset by insurance proceeds for Hurricane Maria at our two malls in Puerto Rico and for tornado damage at our shopping center in Wilkes-Barre, PA. The six months ended June 30, 2018 reflect hurricane-related insurance proceeds net of expenses.

(2)

Non-same property cash NOI includes cash NOI related to properties being redeveloped and properties acquired or disposed.

(3)

The results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 were negatively impacted by store closures from anchor bankruptcies. Excluding the impact of the bankruptcies of Toys “R” Us, National Wholesale Liquidators, Fallas and Sears (Kmart), same-property cash NOI would have increased by 2.8% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and by 2.4% for the six months ended June 30, 2019, and same-property cash NOI including properties in redevelopment would have increased by 4.4% the three months ended June 30, 2019 and by 4.2% for the six months ended June 30, 2019:
