Chambers Street Properties (NYSE: CSG) ("Chambers Street" or the "Company"), a real estate investment trust focused on acquiring, owning and operating net leased industrial and office properties, today reported its financial results for the three-month period ended September 30, 2015.

Operational and Financial Highlights Third Quarter 2015

  • Increased Core Funds from Operations ("Core FFO") to $0.19 per diluted share, an increase of $0.01 per share compared to the third quarter of 2014
  • Total portfolio percentage leased was 98.3% as of September 30, 2015

Subsequent Highlights

  • Filed definitive joint proxy statement/prospectus with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") in connection with pending merger with Gramercy Property Trust Inc. ("Gramercy")

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2015

Core FFO for the third quarter of 2015 increased to $46.0 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to $41.9 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2014. This increase was primarily the result of increased revenue from the commencement of a new lease in the Company's joint venture with Duke Realty, a reduction in the bonus expense recognized during 2015 and the one-time revenue recognition of forfeited security deposits.

Funds from Operations ("FFO") as defined by NAREIT for the third quarter of 2015 was $41.0 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, as compared to $40.4 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2014. FFO for the third quarter of 2015 was impacted by $4.9 million of expenses related to strategic planning and the pending merger with Gramercy.

Net income for the third quarter of 2015 totaled $6.0 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $18.5 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2014. Results for the three months ended September 30, 2014 included a gain of $13.2 million from the sale of a property.

Same property Net Operating Income (NOI) for the third quarter of 2015 on a cash basis totaled $58.6 million as compared to $58.7 million for the third quarter 2014. Same property NOI for the third quarter of 2015 on a GAAP basis totaled $59.6 million as compared to $59.1 million for the third quarter of 2014.

Financial Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2015

Core FFO for the first nine months of 2015 increased to $131.9 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, compared to $121.9 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, for the same period in 2014. The increase was primarily the result of property acquisitions since 2014 and increased revenue from the Komar & Sons lease that was signed at the end of 2014 at the Company's 90 Hudson Street property.

FFO for the first nine months of 2015 was $116.3 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, as compared to $120.0 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, for the same period in 2014. FFO for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was impacted by $14.7 million of severance-related expenses, and expenses related to strategic planning and the pending merger with Gramercy.

Net income in the first nine months of 2015 totaled $21.7 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, as compared to $26.9 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the same period in 2014. Results for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 included a gain of $5.8 million from the sale of two properties and results for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 included a gain of $13.2 million from the sale of a property.

Merger Update

On October 27, 2015, the Company's joint proxy statement/prospectus filed with the SEC in connection with the pending merger with Gramercy was declared effective. A shareholder meeting has been set for Tuesday, December 15, 2015 to vote on the merger. The record date for shareholders entitled to notice of and to vote at the meeting is October 8, 2015. The transaction, which is subject to approval by the Chambers Street shareholders and the Gramercy stockholders, as well as customary closing conditions, is expected to close on December 17, 2015.

Portfolio

As of September 30, 2015, Chambers Street owned or had majority interests in 125 properties totaling approximately 37.2 million square feet across 19 U.S. states, France, Germany, and the U.K. The portfolio was 98.3% leased at September 30, 2015.

Leasing Activity

During the third quarter, the Company executed 3 new and 10 renewal leases totaling 1,794,616 square feet. This consisted of 1,644,614 square feet of two industrial and eight office lease renewals, 149,213 square feet of two new industrial leases on previously leased space and 789 square feet for one new office lease on space that was not previously leased.

Balance Sheet

As of September 30, 2015, the Company had total debt outstanding of approximately $1.5 billion, including its pro-rata share of unconsolidated entities. The Company's debt had a weighted average interest rate of 3.6%, and an average remaining term to maturity of 3.2 years.

In September, the Company paid off nine notes payable totaling $84.0 million secured by various properties.

Common Share Dividend

On September 18, 2015, the Board of Trustees approved a monthly distribution of $0.0425 per common share for the month of October. The October dividend will be paid on November 9, 2015 to all shareholders of record on October 30, 2015. Subsequently, on October 20, 2015, the Board of Trustees approved a monthly distribution of $0.0425 per common share for the month of November 2015 payable on December 8, 2015 to all shareholders of record on November 30, 2015.

On November 5, 2015, the Company announced it expects to declare and pay a pro-rata monthly distribution immediately prior to consummation of its proposed merger with Gramercy. Chambers Street's dividend will be paid at the pro-rata rate from December 1, 2015 through the date prior to the merger closing date.

The combined company is expected to subsequently declare and pay a stub dividend to its shareholders for the period from the merger closing through December 31, 2015 at Chambers Street's current monthly distribution rate.

The Company announced that they expect the combined company will pay dividends quarterly commencing in the first quarter of 2016. It is further expected that the combined company will establish a dividend payout ratio consistent with the AFFO payout ratios of its peer group, within the 70% to 80% range.

Guidance

As previously announced, due to the pending merger with Gramercy, the Company is not providing earnings guidance, and therefore will no longer maintain its previously announced full year 2015 guidance for Core FFO of $0.68 to $0.71 per share.

Supplemental Information

The Company released supplemental information, available at www.chambersstreet.com under the Investors Relations section, with additional detail, including a description of non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliation to GAAP measures.

Non-GAAP Supplemental Financial Measures:

Funds from Operations

The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, created Funds from Operations, or FFO, as a non-GAAP supplemental measure of REIT operating performance, which is designed to reflect the impact on operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs. The most directly comparable GAAP measure to FFO is net income. FFO is used commonly in the real estate industry because historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry analysts and investors consider presentations of operating results for REITs that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient.

We compute FFO in accordance with standards established by NAREIT. The revised NAREIT White Paper on FFO defines FFO as net income or loss computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding extraordinary items, as defined by GAAP, impairment charges and gains and losses from sales of depreciable operating property, 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.

Core Funds from Operations

We believe that Core FFO is a useful measure of management's decision-making process and appropriately presents our results of operations on a comparative basis. The items listed below are excluded from NAREIT-defined FFO because they are subject to significant fluctuations from period to period that cause both positive and negative effects on our results of operations, often in inconsistent and unpredictable directions.

- Acquisition-related expenses: Acquisition-related expenses are primarily the result of the volume of our acquisitions completed during each period, and therefore we believe such acquisition costs are not reflective of our operating results during each period.

- Loss on early extinguishment of debt: Losses on early extinguishment of debt incurred in the current year are primarily a result of secured mortgage loan repayments typically associated with the sales of the underlying properties. In 2013, the losses represent the write-off of deferred financing costs associated with the refinancing of an unsecured term loan. We believe these events are non-recurring in nature and do not accurately reflect our financial performance.

- Net change in fair value of non-qualifying derivative financial instruments and unrealized gains or losses on our investment in unconsolidated entities: Unrealized gains or losses that we have recognized during a given period are based primarily upon changes in the estimated fair market value of certain of our investments due to changes in market conditions and do not necessarily reflect the operating performance of these properties during the corresponding period.

- Other non-recurring expenses: Other non-recurring expenses such as company strategic planning, severance-related costs and costs related to the process of listing our common shares on the New York Stock Exchange and our modified "Dutch Auction" tender offer are not reflective of our operating results during each period.

We believe that Core FFO is useful to investors as a supplemental measure of operating performance because adjusting FFO to exclude acquisition costs, unrealized gains and/or losses or other non-recurring expenses provides investors a view of the performance of our portfolio over time, including if we cease to acquire properties on a frequent and regular basis and allows for a comparison of the performance of our portfolio with other REITs that are not currently engaging in acquisitions. We also believe that Core FFO may provide investors with a useful indication of our future performance, and of the sustainability of our current distribution policy. However, because Core FFO excludes acquisition costs, unrealized gains or losses and/or other non-recurring expenses which are important components in an analysis of our historical performance, such supplemental measure should not be construed as a historical performance measure and may not be as useful a measure for estimating the value of our common shares.

Adjusted Funds from Operations

We calculate Adjusted Funds From Operations, or AFFO, as Core FFO exclusive of the net effects of (i) amortization associated with deferred financings costs; (ii) amortization of above- and below-market lease intangibles; (iii) amortization of premium/discounts on notes payable; (iv) amortization of deferred revenue related to tenant improvements and lease inducements; (v) non-cash share-based compensation expense; (vi) straight-line rental revenue; and (vii) recurring capital expenditures.

Not all REITs calculate FFO, Core FFO or AFFO (or an equivalent measure), in the same manner and therefore comparisons with other REITs may not be meaningful. None of these measures present, nor do we intend for them to present, a complete picture of our financial condition and/or operating performance. We believe that net income, as computed under GAAP, appropriately remains the primary measure of our performance and that FFO, Core FFO and AFFO, when considered in conjunction with net income, improves the investing public's understanding of the operating results of REITs and makes comparisons of REIT operating results more meaningful.
