– Strong Operating Fundamentals Drive Growth in Occupancy, Leasing Spreads and Same Property Net Operating Income –

NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kimco Realty Corp. (NYSE:KIM) today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2018.

  • Increased net income available to the company’s common shareholders to $0.30 per diluted share, compared to $0.15 per diluted share during the same period in 2017.
  • Achieved 5.4% growth in Funds from operations available to the company’s common shareholders (NAREIT FFO) to $0.39 per diluted share, compared to $0.37 per diluted share during the same period in 2017.
  • Grew same-property net operating income 2.6% over the same period in 2017.
  • Increased pro-rata occupancy to 96.1%, representing year-over-year and sequential improvement of 80 and 10 basis points, respectively.
  • Generated new leasing spreads of 15.6%, representing the sixteenth consecutive quarter that the rental rate for new leases increased by more than 10% over the prior rent for the comparable space.
  • Disposed of 21 shopping centers totaling 2.3 million square feet for a gross sales price of $219.5 million. Kimco’s share of the sales price was $210.2 million.

Net income available to the company’s common shareholders for the first quarter of 2018 was $129.5 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, compared to $65.2 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2017. The increase was primarily due to $41.6 million of higher gains on the sales of operating properties, net of impairments, a $6.6 million increase in net operating income, and $12.1 million of lower depreciation expense on operating properties. Gains on sales, property impairments, and depreciation related to operating properties are excluded from the calculation of NAREIT FFO.

NAREIT FFO was $164.9 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2018 compared to $155.1 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2017. NAREIT FFO for the first quarter of 2018 included $7.0 million of transactional income (net of transactional charges). This compares to $0.6 million of transactional charges (net of transactional income) in the first quarter of 2017.

FFO as adjusted available to common shareholders, which excludes the effects of non-operating impairments as well as transactional income and charges, was $157.8 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2018 compared to $155.8 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2017.

A reconciliation of net income to NAREIT FFO, FFO as adjusted and same-property NOI is provided in the tables accompanying this press release.

  • Pro-rata anchor occupancy improved to 98.3%, a 100-basis-point increase over the same period in 2017 and a 20-basis-point increase sequentially; Small shop occupancy was unchanged at 89.6%.
  • Pro-rata rental-rate leasing spreads increased 8.1% during the first quarter 2018, with rental rates for new leases up 15.6% and renewals/options up 7.3%.

As previously announced, during the first quarter, the company disposed of 21 shopping centers totaling 2.3 million square feet for a gross sales price of $219.5 million. Kimco’s share of the sales price was $210.2 million. The dispositions included a five-property portfolio in the St. Louis market for $49.5 million and a five-property portfolio spread across Florida and Georgia totaling $72.7 million.

The statements in this news release state the company’s and management’s intentions, beliefs, expectations or projections of the future and are forward-looking statements. It is important to note that the company’s actual results could differ materially from those projected in such forward-looking statements. Factors which may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, but are not limited to, (i) general adverse economic and local real estate conditions, (ii) the inability of major tenants to continue paying their rent obligations due to bankruptcy, insolvency or a general downturn in their business, (iii) financing risks, such as the inability to obtain equity, debt or other sources of financing or refinancing on favorable terms to the company, (iv) the company’s ability to raise capital by selling its assets, (v) changes in governmental laws and regulations and management’s ability to estimate the impact of such changes, (vi) the level and volatility of interest rates and foreign currency exchange rates and management’s ability to estimate the impact thereof, (vii) the availability of suitable acquisition, disposition, development and redevelopment opportunities, and risks related to acquisitions not performing in accordance with our expectations, (viii) valuation and risks related to the company’s joint venture and preferred equity investments, (ix) valuation of marketable securities and other investments, (x) increases in operating costs, (xi) changes in the dividend policy for the company’s common and preferred stock and the Company’s ability to pay dividends at current levels, (xii) the reduction in the company’s income in the event of multiple lease terminations by tenants or a failure by multiple tenants to occupy their premises in a shopping center, (xiii) impairment charges and (xiv) unanticipated changes in the company’s intention or ability to prepay certain debt prior to maturity and/or hold certain securities until maturity. Additional information concerning factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those forward-looking statements is contained from time to time in the company’s SEC filings. Copies of each filing may be obtained from the company or the SEC.

The company refers you to the documents filed by the company from time to time with the SEC, specifically the section titled “Risk Factors” in the company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, as may be updated or supplemented in the company’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and the company’s other filings with the SEC, which discuss these and other factors that could adversely affect the company’s results. The company disclaims any intention or obligation to update the forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

NAREIT FFO: A supplemental non-GAAP measure utilized to evaluate the operating performance of real estate companies. The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) defines funds from operations (“NAREIT FFO”) as net income/(loss) attributable to common shareholders computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), excluding gains or losses from sales of operating real estate assets and change in control of interests, plus (i) depreciation and amortization of operating properties and (ii) impairment of depreciable real estate and in substance real estate equity investments and (iii) after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures calculated to reflect NAREIT FFO on the same basis.

The company considers NAREIT FFO an important supplemental measure of our operating performance and believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present NAREIT FFO when reporting results. Comparison of our presentation of NAREIT FFO to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in the application of the NAREIT definition used by such REITs.

FFO as Adjusted: A supplemental non-GAAP measure that the company believes is more reflective of its core operating performance and provides investors and analysts an additional measure to compare the company’s performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. FFO as adjusted is generally calculated by the Company as NAREIT FFO excluding certain transactional income and expenses and non-operating impairments which management believes are not reflective of the results within the company’s operating real estate portfolio.

Same-Property NOI: A supplemental non-GAAP measure of real estate companies’ operating performance and should not be considered an alternative to net income in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of liquidity. The company considers same-property NOI as an important operating performance measure because it is frequently used by securities analysts and investors to measure only the net operating income of properties that have been owned by the company for the entire current and prior year reporting periods. It excludes properties under development and pending stabilization; properties are deemed stabilized at the earlier of (i) reaching 90% leased or (ii) one year following a projects inclusion in operating real estate. Same-property NOI assists in eliminating disparities in net income due to the development, acquisition or disposition of properties during the period presented, and thus provides a more consistent performance measure for the comparison of the Company's properties.

Same-property NOI is calculated using revenues from rental properties (excluding straight-line rent adjustments, lease termination fees, amortization of above/below market rents and includes charges for bad debt) less operating and maintenance expense, real estate taxes and rent expense plus the company’s proportionate share of same-property NOI from unconsolidated real estate joint ventures, calculated on the same basis. The company’s method of calculating same-property NOI may differ from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs.
