 Columbia Property Trust Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results
   Thursday, October 27, 2016 4:05:04 PM ET

Columbia Property Trust, Inc. (CXP ) reported financial results today for the quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Highlights:

-- For the third quarter of 2016, our Net Income per diluted share was $0.30 and our Normalized Funds from Operations (NFFO)(1) per diluted share was $0.37. Cash flows from operations were $60.3 million and Adjusted Funds from Operations were $30.3 million.

-- We continued our non-core dispositions with the sales of 80 Park Plaza in Newark, South Jamaica Street in Denver, and 800 North Frederick Avenue in Suburban Maryland for total gross proceeds of $364 million, bringing us to $551 million of dispositions completed to date in 2016.

-- We issued $350 million in ten-year, unsecured 3.650% senior notes to extend our debt maturities and improve our cost of debt capital.

"During our September investor conference, we outlined our plans for the next couple of years as we finish the process of becoming a leading high-barrier, CBD-focused REIT while also unlocking the intrinsic value of our assets," said Nelson Mills, president and chief executive officer of Columbia Property Trust. "We are pleased to report that we have already completed several of the initial tasks set forth in September. During the third quarter, we sold our non-core assets in Newark, Denver and Suburban Maryland, allowing us to exit those markets and bringing us to $551 million in dispositions in 2016. These transactions keep us on track to achieve our targeted range of $700 million to $1 billion in total dispositions for the year. Thanks to our experienced local teams, we are also continuing to build leasing momentum in our largest markets - New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C."

Portfolio Highlights:

During the third quarter, we entered into leases for an aggregate of 149,000 rentable square feet. Our third quarter leasing activity included 36,000 square feet of new leases, with an average lease term of approximately eight years, and 113,000 square feet of renewal leases, with an average lease term of approximately six years.

As of September 30, 2016, excluding the 9127 South Jamaica Street building, which was sold on October 12, 2016, our portfolio of 23 office properties was 90.7% leased and 86.7% occupied compared with 93.3% leased and 91.7% occupied as of September 30, 2015, and 90.6% leased and 86.8% occupied as of June 30, 2016. The year-over-year declines are due to the timing of our current year leasing activity. In the second quarter, we terminated the Jones Day lease at 222 East 41st Street and executed a full-building lease with NYU Langone Medical, which commenced in the fourth quarter.

For leases executed during the quarter, we experienced a 26.3% increase in rental rates on a GAAP Rent basis and an 18.3% increase in rental rates on a cash rent basis.

Financing Activity:

We issued $350 million in ten-year, unsecured 3.650% senior notes in August 2016 at 99.626% of face value. The proceeds from these notes were used to repay $250 million of 5.875% senior notes, with an original maturity date of April 1, 2018, and the related $17.9 million make-whole payment, and to pay down borrowings on our revolving credit facility.

Disposition Activity:

Since the beginning of the third quarter, we completed the following dispositions, bringing us to $551 million completed to date in 2016:

-- 800 North Frederick Avenue in suburban Maryland for gross proceeds of $48 million;

-- 80 Park Plaza in Newark for gross proceeds of $174.5 million; and

-- South Jamaica Street in Denver for gross proceeds of $141.5 million in two separate transactions.

We are under contract to sell the 1.3 million-square-foot Key Center Tower and the 400-room Key Center Marriott in Cleveland, and we continue marketing efforts for the 267,000-square-foot SanTan Corporate Center in Phoenix and the 310,000-square-foot Sterling Commerce property in Dallas. Depending on timing, we expect these dispositions, plus those already closed this year, to generate aggregate gross proceeds within the target range of $700 million to $1 billion.

Financial Results:

Net Income Attributable to Common Stockholders was $36.9 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2016, compared with $20.1 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2015. The year-over-year change is primarily due to disposition activity and debt refinancings.

We experienced year-over-year declines in NFFO, AFFO, Net Operating Income ("NOI") and Same Store NOI due to the current year leasing activity at 222 East 41st Street and property sales. In the second quarter, we terminated the Jones Day lease, the property’s majority tenant, to prepare for a full-building lease with NYU Langone Medical, which commenced in October. In lieu of rent for the third quarter, we collected a lease termination fee of $6.2 million from Jones Day in the second quarter.

NFFO was $46.2 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2016, compared with $58.1 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, in the prior-year period. If the $6.2 million lease termination fee from Jones Day had been paid in the third quarter under its original lease term, NFFO would have been $52.4 million for the third quarter of 2016. The remaining $5.7 million decrease in NFFO is due to property sales.

Cash flows from operations were $60.3 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared with $66.0 million in the prior-year period. AFFO(1) was $30.3 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared with $43.7 million in the prior-year period. If the $6.2 million lease termination fee from Jones Day had been paid in the third quarter under its original lease term, AFFO would have been $36.5 million for the third quarter of 2016. The remaining $7.2 million decrease in AFFO is due to property sales.

NOI(1) for the third quarter of 2016 decreased 16.7% based on GAAP rents and 16.8% based on cash rents compared with the prior-year period. Same store NOI(1) for the third quarter of 2016 decreased 9.9% based on GAAP rents and 7.9% based on cash rents compared with the prior year period. If the $6.2 million lease termination fee from Jones Day had been paid in the third quarter under its original lease term, NOIfor the third quarter of 2016 would have decreased by 9.4% based on GAAP rents and by 8.9% based on cash rents compared with the prior-year period, primarily due to property sales; and Same store NOI for the third quarter of 2016 would have been stable based on GAAP rents and increased 2.6% based on cash rents compared with the prior year period.

Distributions:

For the third quarter of 2016, we paid a dividend of $37.0 million, which was $0.30 per share, or an annualized rate of $1.20 per share. The dividend was paid on September 15, 2016, to stockholders of record as of September 1, 2016.

Our guidance for 2016 is based on the following assumptions for our portfolio:

-- Leased percentage at year end 2016 of 90% to 92%

-- GAAP straight-line rental income of $20 million to $23 million

-- G&A of $32 million to $34 million

-- Dispositions of $700 million to $1 billion ($551 million sold to date)

-- Assumes no acquisitions before year end

-- Weighted average diluted share count of 123.5 million (excludes impact of potential share repurchases after October 27, 2016)

Jim Fleming, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, added, "The high demand and attractive pricing we achieved on the bonds we issued in the third quarter provides additional validation of our overall strategy, as we have maintained a strong balance sheet while making steady progress in transforming the company. The pricing of these bonds, as well as the way they have traded since issuance, points to a substantially lower cost of debt capital as we move our company forward. With the dispositions completed to date, and the timing of certain leasing and other dispositions, we have been able to raise our guidance for 2016."

Our guidance reflects management’s view of current market conditions and incorporate certain economic and operational assumptions and projections. This annual guidance includes the continued enhancement of the portfolio based on the above assumptions. Actual results could differ from these estimates. Note that individual quarters may fluctuate on both a cash basis and a GAAP basis due to the timing of acquisitions and dispositions, lease commencements and expirations, the timing of repairs and maintenance, capital expenditures, capital markets activities and one-time revenue or expense events. In addition, the Company’s guidance is based on information available to management as of the date of this release.

Definitions:

Funds from Operations - FFO, as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), represents net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), plus depreciation of real estate assets and amortization of lease-related costs, excluding gains (losses) on sales of real estate and impairment losses on real estate assets. The Company computes FFO in accordance with NAREIT’s definition, which may differ from the methodology for calculating FFO, or similarly titled measures, used by other companies and this may not be comparable to those presentations. We consider FFO an appropriate supplemental performance measure given its wide use by and relevance to investors and analysts. FFO, reflecting the assumption that real estate asset values rise or fall with market conditions, principally adjusts for the effects of GAAP depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, which assume that the value of real estate diminishes predictably over time.

Normalized FFO -We calculate Normalized FFO by starting with FFO, as defined by NAREIT, and adjusting for certain items that are not reflective of our core operations, including: (i) real estate acquisition-related costs, (ii) listing costs, (iii) loss on interest rate swaps and (iv) loss on early extinguishment of debt. Such items create significant earnings volatility. We believe Normalized FFO provides a meaningful measure of our operating performance and more predictability regarding future earnings potential. Normalized FFO is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be viewed as an alternative measurement of our operating performance to net income; therefore, it should not be compared to other REITs’ equivalent to Normalized FFO.

Adjusted Funds from Operations - AFFO is calculated by adjusting Cash Flow from Operations to exclude (i) changes in assets and liabilities resulting from timing differences (ii) additional amortization of lease assets (liabilities), (iii) straight-line rental income, (iv) gain (loss) on interest rate swaps, (v) recurring capital expenditures, and adding back (vi) stock based compensation expense and (vii) non-cash interest expense. Because AFFO adjusts for income and expenses that we believe are not reflective of our core operations, we believe AFFO provides useful supplemental information. AFFO is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be viewed as an alternative measurement of our operating performance to net cash flows from operating activities or net income.

EBITDA - EBITDA is defined as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We believe EBITDA is a reasonable measure of our liquidity. EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be viewed as an alternative measurement of cash flows from operating activities or other GAAP basis liquidity measures. Other REITs may calculate EBITDA differently and our calculation should not be compared to that of other REITs.

Adjusted EBITDA - Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and incrementally removing any impairment losses, gains or losses from sales of property, real estate acquisition-related costs, discontinued operations adjustments, or other extraordinary items. We do not include impairment losses in this measure because we feel these types of losses create volatility in our earnings and make it difficult to determine the earnings generated by our ongoing business. We believe adjusted EBITDA is a reasonable measure of our liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be viewed as an alternative measurement of cash flows from operating activities or other GAAP basis liquidity measures. Other REITs may calculate adjusted EBITDA differently and our calculation should not be compared to that of other REITs.

Net Operating Income (based on cash rents) - NOI - cash rents is defined as Adjusted EBITDA adjusted for (i) portfolio general and administrative expense, (ii) interest rate swap valuation adjustments, (iii) interest expense associated with interest rates swaps, (iv) non-cash property operations, (v) straight-line rental income, and (vi) net effect of above/(below) market amortization. The company uses this measure to assess its operating results and believes it is important in assessing operating performance. NOI - cash rents is a non-GAAP measure which does not have any standard meaning prescribed by GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Net Operating Income (based on GAAP Rents) - NOI - GAAP rents is defined as Adjusted EBITDA adjusted for (i) portfolio general and administrative expense, (ii) interest rate swap valuation adjustments, and (iii) interest expense associated with interest rates swaps. The company uses this measure to assess its operating results and believes it is important in assessing operating performance. NOI - GAAP rents is a non-GAAP measure which does not have any standard meaning prescribed by GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Forward-Looking Statements:

Certain statements contained in this press release other than historical facts may be considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. We intend for all such forward-looking statements to be covered by the applicable safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in those acts. Such statements include, in particular, statements about our plans, strategies, guidance, and prospects and are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, including known and unknown risks, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or anticipated. Therefore, such statements are not intended to be a guarantee of our performance in future periods. Such forward-looking statements can generally be identified by our use of forward-looking terminology such as "may," "will," "expect," "intend," "anticipate," "estimate," "believe," "continue," or other similar words.

Any such forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors and are based on a number of assumptions involving judgments with respect to, among other things, future economic, competitive, and market conditions, all of which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately. To the extent that our assumptions differ from actual conditions, our ability to accurately anticipate results expressed in such forward-looking statements, including our ability to generate positive cash flow from operations, make distributions to stockholders, and maintain the value of our real estate properties, may be significantly hindered. See Item 1A in the Company’s most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 and subsequently filed periodic reports for a discussion of some of the risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those presented in our forward-looking statements. The risk factors described in our Annual Report are not the only ones we face, but do represent those risks and uncertainties that we believe are material to us. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also harm our business.
