Share:
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Urban Edge Properties (NYSE: UE) (the "Company") announced today its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Highlights include:

  • Generated net income of $0.19 per diluted share for the quarter and $0.72 per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.
  • Generated Funds from Operations applicable to diluted common shareholders ("FFO") of $0.33 per share for the quarter and $0.96 per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.
  • Generated FFO as Adjusted of $0.32 per share for the quarter and $0.94 per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, an increase of 7% as compared to the third quarter of 2015 and 4% as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2015. FFO as Adjusted excludes tenant bankruptcy settlement income and transaction costs.
  • Increased same-property cash Net Operating Income ("NOI") by 4.1% as compared to the third quarter of 2015 and 3.6% as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2015 primarily due to new rent commencements and higher recoveries resulting from higher occupancy.
  • Increased same-property cash NOI including properties in redevelopment by 3.9% as compared to the third quarter of 2015 and 2.8% as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2015. The expected vacancy of former anchor tenants at Walnut Creek and Bruckner negatively impacted this result by approximately 90 basis points. Anthropologie opened at Walnut Creek on September 16, 2016 and ShopRite is expected to open at Bruckner in the first quarter of 2018.
  • Rent commencements during the third quarter included LA Fitness at Kearny, Anthropologie at Walnut Creek and Burlington Coat Factory at Garfield.
  • Increased consolidated retail portfolio occupancy by 50 basis points to 96.6% as compared to September 30, 2015 and by 40 basis points as compared to June 30, 2016.
  • Increased same-property retail portfolio occupancy by 50 basis points to 97.4% as compared to September 30, 2015 and by 10 basis points as compared to June 30, 2016.
  • New leases, renewals and options totaling 284,000 square feet ("sf") were executed during the quarter. Same-space leases totaled 184,000 sf at an average rental rate of $25.59 per sf on a GAAP basis and $24.32 per sf on a cash basis generating average rent spreads of 21.2% on a GAAP basis and 11.0% on a cash basis.
  • Executed contracts to acquire two properties for $76.0 million. Both acquisitions are located in the NY metropolitan region and are adjacent to shopping centers already owned by the Company. These off-market acquisitions are expected to generate a 7.5% unleveraged return on invested capital based on the first year of net operating income.

Refer to "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Operational Metrics" for definitions and further discussions of the measures and metrics highlighted above.

Development, Redevelopment and Anchor Repositioning:

The Company is investing approximately $132 million in development, redevelopment and anchor repositioning projects expected to generate a 13% return on invested capital upon completion based on the expected incremental cash NOI relative to the total investment. These projects include:

  • Walnut Creek, CA (South Main Street) was completed in September 2016 with the opening of a 31,000 sf Anthropologie in a former Barnes & Noble building.
  • Walnut Creek (Mt Diablo) is scheduled for completion in early 2017 with the opening of a 7,000 sf Z Gallerie in the building formerly occupied by Anthropologie.
  • The Outlets at Montehiedra in San Juan, Puerto Rico celebrated its grand reopening on October 7, 2016. Initial new tenants include Polo, Gap, Nike, Puma, Skechers, Maidenform (under construction), and Guess (under construction). Additionally, Caribbean Theatres completed a $6.0 million renovation of its 13 screen cinema including the addition of the first IMAX and 4DX offerings in the Caribbean. The project is scheduled to be fully completed by March 2018.
  • Garfield Commons in Garfield, NJ is on schedule for completion in September 2017. Burlington Coat Factory opened in September 2016, PetSmart opened in October 2016 and 17,000 sf of shop space is under construction.
  • West End Commons in North Plainfield, NJ is scheduled for completion in September 2017. New retailers include Petco, La-Z-Boy (open), AAA, Aroogas and Texas Roadhouse (open).
  • Goucher Commons in Towson, MD is scheduled for completion in September 2017 with the addition of Ulta, Tuesday Morning and two other national retailers.
  • Hackensack Commons in Hackensack, NJ is on schedule for completion in December 2017 with the addition of a 60,000 sf 99 Ranch Market.
  • Bruckner Commons in the Bronx, NY is scheduled for completion in January 2018. The renovation and anchor repositioning includes the first ShopRite supermarket in the Bronx, a 50,000 sf discount retailer and new food and service offerings.

Bergen Town Center in Paramus, NJ is undergoing a phased renovation and expansion to be completed over the next several years. The phases include expanding the existing mall by approximately 40,000 sf and developing 60,000-75,000 sf of new retail space on entitled land across the street from the mall. The project will add leading discount and outlet retailers, entertainment venues and enhanced food and dining options. Access, parking, circulation and signage will also be improved. The total investment is now projected to be $70.0-$80.0 million as compared to the previous estimate of approximately $140 million. The reduction reflects the elimination of a proposed, new second level over the existing mall.

During the third quarter, the Company added two new projects to its development and redevelopment pipeline with aggregate expected costs of $5.0-$7.0 million. The pipeline now comprises 16 projects with total expected costs of $115.0-$140.0 million on which the Company expects to generate an 8% return on invested capital.

Balance Sheet Highlights:

At September 30, 2016:

  • Total market capitalization (including debt and equity) was approximately $4.2 billion comprising 106.0 million common shares outstanding (on a fully diluted basis) valued at $3.0 billion and $1.2 billion of debt. The calculation of fully diluted common shares outstanding is provided in the tables accompanying this press release
  • The ratio of net debt (net of cash) to total market capitalization was 25.3%
  • Net debt to annualized Adjusted Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") was 5.6x. A reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are provided in the tables accompanying this press release
  • The Company had approximately $149.7 million of cash and cash equivalents and no amounts drawn on its $500.0 million revolving 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 could 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 depreciated real estate assets, real estate impairment losses, rental property depreciation and amortization expense. The Company believes that financial analysts, investors and stockholders 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 transaction costs associated with acquisition and disposition activity and 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 operating income or net income.
  • 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 77 properties for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015. Information on a same-property basis 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, sold, or that are in the foreclosure process 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 a property is considered to be a redevelopment property because it is undergoing significant renovation or retenanting pursuant to a formal plan and is expected to have a significant impact on property operating income based on the retenanting that is occurring. A development or redevelopment property is moved back to the same-property pool once a substantial portion of the growth expected from the development or redevelopment is reflected in both the current and comparable prior year period, generally the earlier of one year after construction is substantially complete or when the GLA related to the redevelopment is 90% leased. 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. The Company calculates same-property 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 the following items: lease termination fees, bankruptcy settlement income, non-cash rental income and ground rent expense and income or expenses that we do not believe are representative of ongoing operating results, if any.
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA: EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental, non-GAAP measures utilized in various financial ratios. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA 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 it approximates a key performance measure in our debt covenants. Accordingly, the Company believes that the use of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as opposed to income before income taxes in various ratios, provides a meaningful performance measure as it relates to the Company's ability to meet various coverage tests for the stated periods. The Company also presents the ratio of net debt (net of cash) to annualized Adjusted EBITDA, which is useful to investors as a supplemental measure in evaluating the Company's balance sheet leverage.

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

Operational 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 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 retail portfolio occupancy includes shopping centers and malls that have been owned and operated for the entirety of the reporting periods being compared totaling 77 properties for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015. Occupancy metrics presented for the Company's same-property retail 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, properties sold, or that are in the foreclosure process 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 with comparable gross leasable area.
