Quarterly Rental Income Grows 6.0% Above Prior Year–

GREAT NECK, N.Y., Aug. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- One Liberty Properties, Inc. (NYSE:OLP), a real estate investment trust focused on net leased properties, today announced operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Patrick J. Callan, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of One Liberty stated, "Industrial properties and distribution centers continue to grow in importance as consumer goods are shipped directly to retail customers.  We continue to improve the Company's position in the evolving economic landscape by emphasizing the acquisition of industrial and distribution properties.  We remain disciplined in our approach and will selectively add properties to optimize our portfolio, drive cash flow per share and increase value for stockholders."

Operating Results:

Rental income grew 6.0% to $17.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, from $16.7 million in the corresponding quarter in the prior year, due to properties acquired in 2018 and 2017 and, to a lesser extent, increases at same store properties.  Same store results improved due primarily to the re-tenanting of two properties that were vacant during the 2017 quarter.

Total operating expenses in the second quarter of 2018 were $11.0 million compared to $10.8 million for the same period in 2017.

Net income attributable to One Liberty in the second quarter of 2018 was $4.5 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, compared to $10 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017.  However, net income for the 2017 quarter includes a $6.6 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, gain on the sale of real estate.

Funds from Operations, or FFO, was $9.9 million, compared to $8.8 million in the prior year quarter. Per diluted share FFO grew 8.5% to $0.51 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, compared to $0.47 in the corresponding quarter of 2017.

Adjusted Funds from Operations, or AFFO, was $10.5 million compared to $9.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.  On a per diluted share basis, AFFO rose 3.8% to $0.54 compared to $0.52 for the corresponding quarter in the prior year.

Diluted per share net income, FFO and AFFO were impacted during the quarter ended June 30, 2018 by the approximate 682,000 share increase in the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the second quarter of 2018 from the second quarter of 2017 due to stock issuances pursuant to One Liberty's at-the-market offering, dividend reinvestment and equity incentive programs.  A reconciliation of GAAP amounts to non-GAAP amounts is presented with the financial information included in this release.

Balance Sheet:

At June 30, 2018, the Company had $12.9 million of cash and cash equivalents, total assets of $751.9 million, total debt of $411.4 million, and total stockholders' equity of $300.3 million.

At August 2, 2018, One Liberty's available liquidity was approximately $99.2 million, including approximately $2.5 million of cash and cash equivalents (net of the credit facility's required $3 million deposit maintenance balance) and up to $96.7 million available under its credit facility.

Transactions:

As previously disclosed, on June 7, 2018 the Company acquired an 82,565 square foot industrial building located in Plymouth, Minnesota, for $5.5 million. 

Subsequent to quarter end, an unconsolidated joint venture sold its only property, located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for $12.8 million, net of closing costs. The Company anticipates that its 50% share of the gain from this sale, to be recognized in the three months ending September 30, 2018, will be approximately $2.0 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

One Liberty computes FFO in accordance with the "White Paper on Funds From Operations" issued by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") and NAREIT's related guidance. FFO is defined in the White Paper as net income (computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus real estate depreciation and amortization (including amortization of deferred leasing costs), plus impairment write‑downs of depreciable real estate and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures will be calculated to reflect funds from operations on the same basis.  One Liberty computes AFFO by adjusting FFO for straight-line rent accruals and amortization of lease intangibles, deducting lease termination fees and gain on extinguishment of debt and adding back amortization of restricted stock compensation, amortization of costs in connection with its financing activities (including its share of its unconsolidated joint ventures) and debt prepayment costs. Since the NAREIT White Paper does not provide guidelines for computing AFFO, the computation of AFFO may vary from one REIT to another.

One Liberty believes that FFO and AFFO are useful and standard supplemental measures of the operating performance for equity REITs and are used frequently by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in evaluating equity REITs, many of which present FFO and AFFO when reporting their operating results. FFO and AFFO are intended to exclude GAAP historical cost depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, which assumes that the value of real estate assets diminish predictability over time. In fact, real estate values have historically risen and fallen with market conditions. As a result, management believes that FFO and AFFO provide a performance measure that when compared year over year, should reflect the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, interest costs and other matters without the inclusion of depreciation and amortization, providing a perspective that may not be necessarily apparent from net income.  Management also considers FFO and AFFO to be useful in evaluating potential property acquisitions.

FFO and AFFO do not represent net income or cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities as defined by GAAP.  FFO and AFFO should not be considered to be an alternative to net income as a reliable measure of our operating performance nor as an alternative to cash flows as measures of liquidity. FFO and AFFO do not measure whether cash flow is sufficient to fund all of the Company's cash needs.
