PS Business Parks, Inc. Reports Results for the Quarter and Year Ended December 31, 2019

GLENDALE, Calif.--()--PS Business Parks, Inc. (NYSE:PSB) reported operating results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2019. Net income allocable to common shareholders for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019 was $27.5 million, or $1.00 per diluted common share, and $108.7 million, or $3.95 per diluted common share, respectively.

“We are extremely pleased to report strong operating results for the fourth quarter, a satisfying end to a great year of performance for PS Business Parks,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Maria Hawthorne. “Same Park cash NOI was up 6.6% in the fourth quarter and 5.5% for the full year 2019, and notably we were able to achieve this growth while maintaining our disciplined approach to managing capital expenses. For the year, we achieved total portfolio cash rental rate growth of 8.3% while containing transaction cost capital to just 5.6% of total rents, an extraordinary display of our dedicated in-house leasing and property management teams’ ability to execute throughout our markets.

“We are also very pleased with our recent acquisitions, including a 1031 exchange that we wrapped up just after year end. We sold Metro Park IV, a government occupied single-tenant property in Montgomery County, Maryland, and redeployed the sale proceeds into two parks in California which are both bolt-on acquisitions to our existing portfolios. With this sale, we have completed the disposition of the three suburban Maryland parks that we announced early in 2019, and we are confident that the acquired parks will be great assets for us.

“As we look ahead, we entered the year with positive momentum and are planning for another strong year in 2020. Fundamentals of our Same Park portfolio remain strong, our recent acquisitions are poised to stabilize favorably, and our fortress balance sheet remains positioned for growth as we continue to seek accretive acquisition opportunities in nearly all of our markets. Additionally, we intend to commence construction on the next phase of multifamily development at The Mile in Tysons, Virginia, in mid-2020, and we also intend to develop two multi-tenant industrial buildings on excess land parcels at existing parks in our Dallas and Seattle markets. On all fronts, 2020 is shaping up to be another terrific year for PSB.”

Operating Results for the Three Months and Year Ended December 31, 2019

Net operating income (“NOI”) attributable to the Company’s Same Park facilities was $70.3 million and $273.1 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019, respectively, an increase of 6.1% and 4.9% over the same periods in 2018, respectively. The increase in Same Park NOI for the three months ended December 31, 2019 was driven by a 6.6% increase in rental income, while the increase in Same Park NOI for the year ended December 31, 2019 was driven by a 4.9% increase in rental income. Cash rental rate changes for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019 were 6.4% and 8.3%, respectively.

Funds from Operations (“FFO”), Core FFO and Funds Available for Distribution (“FAD”)

FFO for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019 was $1.34 per share and $6.47 per share, respectively. FFO is a non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) measure defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts and generally represents GAAP net income before (i) real estate depreciation and amortization expense, (ii) gains or losses on sales of operating properties, and (iii) land and impairment charges on real estate assets.

Core FFO, which the Company defines as FFO excluding the impact of (i) charges related to the redemption of preferred stock and (ii) other nonrecurring income or expense items as appropriate, was $1.65 per share and $6.78 per share for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019, respectively. Core FFO for the three months ended December 31, 2019 included higher than typical preferred equity distributions due to the timing of the new issuance of the Company’s Series Z preferred stock and the related redemption of its Series U and V preferred stock. The Company also incurred an $11.0 million non-cash charge related to the redemption of preferred stock (Series U and V) during the three months and year ended December 31, 2019, which was included in FFO but excluded for Core FFO purposes. Full year 2019 Core FFO of $6.78 per share represents a 5.0% increase over the same period in 2018.

FAD for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019 was $45.0 million and $194.9 million, respectively. Full year 2019 FAD of $194.9 million represents a 6.9% increase over the 2018 FAD of $182.2 million. FAD is a non-GAAP measure that represents Core FFO adjusted to (i) deduct recurring capital improvements and capitalized tenant improvements and lease commissions and (ii) remove certain non-cash income or expenses such as straight-line rent and stock compensation expense.

FFO, Core FFO and FAD are not substitutes for GAAP net income. Other real estate investment trusts (“REITs”) may compute FFO, Core FFO and FAD differently, which could inhibit comparability. The Company believes its presentations of FFO, Core FFO and FAD assist investors and analysts in analyzing and comparing the operating and financial performance between reporting periods.

Property Operations–Same Park Portfolio

The Company believes that evaluation of the Same Park portfolio, defined as all properties owned and operated as of December 31, 2019 that were acquired prior to January 1, 2017, provides an informative view of how the Company’s portfolio has performed over comparable periods. As of December 31, 2019, the Same Park portfolio consisted of 25.7 million rentable square feet, or 93.1% of the 27.6 million rentable square feet in the Company’s total portfolio, and excludes the Company’s 95.0% interest in a 395-unit multifamily property.

Same Park rental income includes lease buyout income of $232,000 and $120,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, and $1.4 million and $583,000 for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Adjusted cost of operations, as presented above, excludes stock compensation expense for employees whose compensation expense is recorded in cost of operations, which can vary significantly period to period based upon the performance of the Company. Beginning January 1, 2019, the Company has recorded the divisional vice presidents’ compensation costs within general and administrative expense as it was determined that the nature of these individuals’ responsibilities is more consistent with corporate oversight as opposed to direct property operations. As a result of this change, the Company has reclassified divisional vice presidents’ compensation costs totaling $280,000 and $1.2 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018, respectively, from adjusted cost of operations into general and administrative expense in order to conform to the current period presentation. Non-cash compensation expense for the divisional vice presidents, which totaled $142,000 and $585,000 for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018, respectively, had previously been excluded from adjusted cost of operations.

(3)

 

The Company utilizes NOI, a non-GAAP financial measure, to evaluate the operating performance of its business parks. The Company defines NOI as rental income less adjusted cost of operations. The Company believes NOI assists investors in analyzing the performance and value of its business parks by excluding (i) corporate overhead (i.e., general and administrative expense) because it does not relate to the direct operating performance of the business parks, (ii) depreciation and amortization expense because it does not accurately reflect changes in the fair value of the business parks, and (iii) stock compensation expense because this expense item can vary significantly from period to period and thus impact comparability across periods.

(4)

 

NOI margin is computed by dividing NOI by rental income.

(5)

 

Revenue per occupied square foot is computed by dividing rental income during the period by weighted average occupied square feet during the same period. For the three month period ending December 31, 2019 and 2018, rental income amounts have been annualized.

(6)

 

Revenue per available foot (RevPAF) is computed by dividing rental income during the period by weighted average available square feet during the same period. For the three month period ending December 31, 2019 and 2018, rental income amounts have been annualized.

Beginning January 1, 2019, the Company has recorded the divisional vice presidents’ compensation costs within general and administrative expense as it was determined that the nature of these individuals’ responsibilities is more consistent with corporate oversight as opposed to direct property operations. To conform to current period presentation, the Company has reclassified divisional vice presidents’ compensation costs totaling $364,000, $288,000, $280,000, and $280,000 for each of the three months ended March 31, 2018, June 30, 2018, September 30, 2018, and December 31, 2018, respectively, from adjusted cost of operations into general and administrative expense. Non-cash compensation expense for the divisional vice presidents had previously been excluded from adjusted cost of operations.

Acquisition and Disposition Activities

On October 8, 2019, the Company completed the sale of three business parks located in Montgomery County, Maryland: Metro Park North, Meadow Business Park, and WesTech Business Park. The parks, consisting of 28 buildings totaling approximately 1.3 million square feet, sold for a gross sales price of $148.8 million.

On December 20, 2019, the Company acquired San Tomas Business Center, a multi-tenant flex park comprised of approximately 79,000 rentable square feet in Santa Clara, California, for a purchase price of $16.6 million.

Subsequent to December 31, 2019, the Company acquired La Mirada Commerce Center, a multi-tenant industrial park comprised of approximately 73,000 rentable square feet in La Mirada, California, for a purchase price of $13.4 million.

Also subsequent to December 31, 2019, the Company completed the sale of Metro Park IV, a single-tenant building totaling 113,000 square feet in Montgomery County, Maryland, for a gross sales price of $30.0 million. Metro Park IV had been marketed previously in 2019 as part of a broader portfolio of suburban Maryland office properties, but was excluded from the 1.3 million square feet of flex and office business parks sale which closed October, 2019 and as such was the Company’s only remaining office asset at Metro Park North.

Preferred Equity Transactions

On November 4, 2019, we issued $325.0 million or 13,000,000 depositary shares representing interests in our 4.875% Cumulative Preferred Stock, Series Z, at $25.00 per depositary share. The Company used net proceeds from this issuance of $316.0 million along with retained cash to complete the redemption of its 5.75% Cumulative Preferred Stock, Series U, at par of $230.0 million as well as its 5.70% Cumulative Preferred Stock, Series V, at par of $110.0 million on December 30, 2019, which effectively lowered the Company’s weighted average coupon rate from 5.40% to 5.10%.

The Company recorded a non-cash charge of $11.0 million related to these redemptions for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019.

Distributions Declared

On February 18, 2020, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $1.05 per common share. Distributions were also declared on the various series of depositary shares, each representing 1/1,000 of a share of preferred stock. Distributions for both common shares and preferred stock will be payable on March 31, 2020 to shareholders of record on March 16, 2020.
