 City Office REIT Reports Third Quarter 2017 Results
   Monday, November 06, 2017 6:00:00 AM ET

City Office REIT, Inc. (CIO ) (the "Company" or "City Office"), today announced its results for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.

Third Quarter Highlights

-- GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders was approximately $3.6 million, or ($0.12) per fully diluted share, Core FFO was approximately $5.9 million, or $0.19 per fully diluted share, and AFFO was approximately $5.0 million, or $0.16 per fully diluted share;

-- In-place occupancy closed the quarter at 88.7%; the Company executed approximately 59,000 square feet of new and renewal leases during the quarter;

-- Same Store Cash NOI increased 4.1% for the quarter and 7.3% year-to-date, as compared to the same periods in 2016;

-- Completed the acquisition of a ten-building portfolio in San Diego, California for $174.5 million (the "San Diego Portfolio");

-- Increased the borrowing capacity under the Secured Credit Facility from $100 million to $150 million;

-- Declared a third quarter dividend of $0.235 per share of common stock, paid on October 25, 2017; and

-- Declared a third quarter dividend of $0.4140625 per share of Series A Preferred Stock, paid on October 25, 2017.

Highlights Subsequent to Quarter End

-- Completed a $33.3 million acquisition ("Papago Tech") in Phoenix, Arizona’s highly desirable Tempe submarket; and

-- Completed a $47.0 million property financing for a portion of the San Diego Portfolio.

"We are pleased to report strong execution on our healthy acquisition pipeline, both during the quarter and subsequent to quarter end," commented James Farrar, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. "With the recent closings of the San Diego Portfolio and Papago Tech, we have acquired over $250 million of properties in 2017, and if these transactions had occurred at the beginning of the third quarter, we would have returned to full dividend coverage on a pro forma Core FFO and AFFO basis."

"In addition to acquisitions, our focus remains on creating value and improving operations at the property level. The pending sale of Washington Group Plaza, the $11 million renovation under way at Park Tower and the lease-up of properties below stabilized occupancy are just a few examples of opportunities that we believe are ahead of us going into the end of the year."

A reconciliation of certain non-GAAP financial measures, including FFO, Core FFO, AFFO, NOI, Same Store Cash NOI and Adjusted Cash NOI, to GAAP net income can be found at the end of this release.

Portfolio Operations

The Company reported that its total portfolio as of September 30, 2017 contained 5.0 million net rentable square feet and was 88.7% occupied.

City Office’s NOI was approximately $14.1 million, or approximately $13.8 million on an adjusted cash basis, during the third quarter of 2017. NOI for the quarter benefited from $23,000 of termination fee income.

Same Store Cash NOI increased 4.1%, as compared to the third quarter of 2016. This was positively impacted by higher average occupancy at the AmberGlen property as compared to the prior year period. Year-to-date, Same Store Cash NOI increased 7.3%, as compared to year-to-date 2016.

Investment and Disposition Activity

At the end of the third quarter, City Office closed the previously announced acquisition of a ten-building, 669,653 SF portfolio located in San Diego for an aggregate purchase price of $174.5 million, exclusive of closing costs. The San Diego Portfolio is comprised of Mission City Corporate Center, a 285,095 SF Class A office campus located in the Mission Valley submarket, and the Sorrento Mesa portfolio, a 384,558 SF Class B office and flex complex and five-acre land parcel located in the Sorrento Mesa submarket. The acquisition is anticipated to generate a combined pro forma net operating income yield of approximately 7.4% inclusive of estimated closing costs, reserves for planned capital improvements and the cost of the land parcel.

Subsequent to the end of the third quarter, the Company completed the acquisition of Papago Tech for a purchase price of $33.3 million, exclusive of closing costs. Papago Tech is a 162,748 SF two-building complex located in the desirable Tempe submarket of Phoenix, Arizona. The acquisition is anticipated to generate an initial full-year net operating income yield of approximately 7.5%. Papago Tech is well-located in the geographic center of the Phoenix metropolitan area, with easy access to freeways, light rail and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The property features exceptional tenant buildouts and was 98.0% occupied at close.

The Company’s total leasing activity during the third quarter of 2017 was 59,000 square feet, which included 38,000 square feet of new leasing and 21,000 square feet of renewals. 53,000 square feet of leases signed within the quarter will or have commenced subsequent to quarter end.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Funds from Operations ("FFO") - The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") states FFO should represent net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP) plus real estate related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs) and after adjustments of unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures, gains or losses on the sale of property and impairments to real estate.

The Company uses FFO as a supplemental performance measure because the Company believes that FFO is beneficial to investors as a starting point in measuring the Company’s operational performance. We also believe that, as a widely recognized measure of the performance of REITs, FFO will be used by investors as a basis to compare the Company’s operating performance with that of other REITs.

However, because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization and captures neither the changes in the value of the Company’s properties that result from use or market conditions nor the level of capital expenditures and leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of the Company’s properties, all of which have real economic effects and could materially impact the Company’s results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of the Company’s performance is limited. In addition, other equity REITs may not calculate FFO in accordance with the NAREIT definition as the Company does, and, accordingly, the Company’s FFO may not be comparable to such other REITs’ FFO. Accordingly, FFO should be considered only as a supplement to net income as a measure of the Company’s performance.

Core Funds from Operations ("Core FFO") - We calculate Core FFO by using FFO as defined by NAREIT and adjusting for certain other non-core items. We also exclude from our Core FFO calculation acquisition costs, loss on early extinguishment of debt, changes in the fair value of the earn-out, changes in fair value of contingent consideration, and the amortization of stock based compensation.

We believe Core FFO provides a useful metric in comparing operations between reporting periods and in assessing the sustainability of our ongoing operating performance. Other equity REITs may calculate Core FFO differently or not at all, and, accordingly, the Company’s Core FFO may not be comparable to such other REITs’ Core FFO.

Adjusted Funds from Operations ("AFFO") - We compute AFFO by adding to Core FFO the non-cash amortization of deferred financing fees and non-real estate depreciation, and then subtracting cash paid for recurring tenant improvements, leasing commissions, and capital expenditures, and eliminating the net effect of straight-line rents, deferred market rent and debt fair value amortization. Recurring capital expenditures exclude development / redevelopment activities, capital expenditures planned at acquisition and costs to reposition a property. We exclude first generation leasing costs within the first two years of our initial public offering or acquisition, which are generally to fill vacant space in properties we acquire or were planned at acquisition. We have further excluded all costs associated with tenant improvements, leasing commissions and capital expenditures which were funded by the entity contributing the properties at closing.

Along with FFO and Core FFO, we believe AFFO provides investors with appropriate supplemental information to evaluate the ongoing operations of the company. Other equity REITs may calculate AFFO differently, and, accordingly, the Company’s AFFO may not be comparable to such other REITs’ AFFO.

Net Operating Income ("NOI"), Adjusted Cash NOI - We define NOI as total revenues less property operating expenses. We define Adjusted Cash NOI as NOI less the effect of recurring straight-line rents, deferred market rent, and any amounts which are funded by the selling entities.

We consider NOI and Adjusted Cash NOI to be appropriate supplemental performance measures to net income because we believe they provide information useful in understanding the core operations and operating performance of our portfolio.

Same Store Cash Net Operating Income ("Same Store Cash NOI") - Same Store Cash NOI is calculated as the NOI attributable to the properties continuously owned and operated for the entirety of the reporting periods presented. The Company’s definition of Same Store Cash NOI excludes properties that were not stabilized during both of the applicable reporting periods. These exclusions may include, but are not limited to, acquisitions, dispositions and properties undergoing repositioning or signification renovations.

We believe Same Store NOI is an important measure of comparison because it allows for comparison of operating results of stabilized properties owned and operated for the entirety of both applicable periods and therefore eliminates variations caused by acquisitions, dispositions or repositionings during such periods. Other REITs may calculate Same Store Cash NOI differently and our calculation should not be compared to that of other REITs.
