NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Urban Edge Properties (NYSE:UE) (the "Company") today announced its results for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Financial Results(1)(2)

  • Generated net income of $26.9 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, for the quarter and $109.7 million, or $0.86 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.
  • Generated Funds from Operations applicable to diluted common shareholders ("FFO") of $48.5 million, or $0.38 per share, for the quarter compared to $40.0 million, or $0.32 per share, for the third quarter of 2017 and $132.2 million, or $1.04 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $152.1 million, or $1.32 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.
  • Generated FFO as Adjusted of $41.9 million, or $0.33 per share, for the quarter compared to $41.9 million, or $0.34 per share, for the third quarter of 2017 and $124.7 million, or $0.98 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $115.8 million, or $1.00 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.
  • FFO as Adjusted for the quarter excludes the $7.0 million net impact of Toys "R" Us lease terminations resulting from $16.5 million of income for the write-off of below market intangible liabilities partially offset by a $9.5 million lease termination payment, a $2.2 million gain on sale of land, $1.9 million of executive transition costs and $0.4 million of transaction costs. FFO as Adjusted for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 excludes the factors above as well as a $1.9 million net expense from the Toys "R" Us lease terminations, $2.5 million gain on extinguishment of debt, a $0.7 million hurricane related casualty gain and $0.6 million of environmental remediation costs.

Operating Results(1)

  • Increased same-property cash Net Operating Income ("NOI") including properties in redevelopment by 2.2% compared to the third quarter of 2017 and by 1.9% compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2017. Third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2018 results were negatively impacted by 150 basis points and 70 basis points, respectively, as a result of Toys "R" Us store closures.
  • Increased same-property cash NOI excluding properties in redevelopment by 0.7% over the third quarter of 2017 and by 1.2% compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2017. Third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2018 results were negatively impacted by 140 basis points and 60 basis points, respectively, as a result of Toys "R" Us store closures.
  • Reported same-property retail portfolio occupancy of 95.2%, a decrease of 140 basis points compared to September 30, 2017, which includes a 170 basis point decline attributable to the Toys "R" Us vacancies.
  • Reported consolidated retail portfolio occupancy of 94.4%, a decrease of 140 basis points compared to September 30, 2017, which includes a 180 basis point decline attributable to the Toys "R" Us vacancies.
  • Executed 39 new leases, renewals and options totaling 429,000 square feet ("sf") during the quarter. Same-space leases totaled 410,000 sf and generated average rent spreads of 19.9% on a GAAP basis and 6.1% on a cash basis.

Toys "R" Us

The Company views the Toys "R" Us bankruptcy as an opportunity to upgrade its spaces with more vibrant retailers and to redevelop certain centers. The Company previously had nine Toys "R" Us leases comprising approximately 400,000 sf that paid an average base rent of $13 per sf, significantly below our estimate of current market rent.

The status of the nine leases is as follows:

  • One lease was assumed by Raymour & Flanigan.
  • The Company paid $15.5 million to recapture the leases at Bruckner Commons and Hudson Mall to accelerate the redevelopment of each property.
  • The Company is actively negotiating letters of intent with national value retailers for four vacancies.
  • Two vacancies are being marketed.

Development, Redevelopment and Anchor Repositioning Activity

During the third quarter, the Company completed two redevelopment projects totaling $20.2 million at The Outlets at Montehiedra Town Center in Puerto Rico and Lawnside Commons in New Jersey, which are expected to generate an unleveraged yield of 12%.

The Company also commenced three new redevelopment projects with estimated gross costs of $15.9 million expected to generate an unleveraged yield of 9%. The projects include (i) expanding Kearny Commons by 22,000 sf to accommodate Ulta, Starbucks and other tenants, (ii) repurposing 82,000 sf of vacant basement space at The Plaza at Woodbridge into a self-storage facility, and (iii) converting a former sit-down restaurant at Mt. Kisco Commons into Chipotle and another quick service restaurant.

The Company has $202 million of active redevelopment projects under way expected to generate a 7% unleveraged yield. Approximately $74 million of that amount remains to be funded.

Balance Sheet Highlights at September 30, 2018(1)(3)(4)

  • Total market capitalization of approximately $4.4 billion comprised of 127.1 million fully-diluted common shares valued at $2.8 billion and $1.6 billion of debt.
  • Net debt to total market capitalization of 25%.
  • Net debt to Adjusted Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization for real estate ("EBITDAre") of 4.7x.
  • $465.6 million of cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash, and no amounts drawn on the $600 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 are subject to 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, impairments on depreciable real estate, rental property depreciation and amortization expense. The Company believes that financial analysts, investors and shareholders 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 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. The Company calculates 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.
  • 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 83 properties for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 and 75 properties for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017. Information provided on a same-property basis excludes properties under development, redevelopment or that involve anchor repositioning where a substantial portion of the gross leasable area ("GLA") is taken out of service and also excludes properties acquired, sold, or under contract to be sold 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 it is designated as a redevelopment property because it is undergoing significant renovation or retenanting pursuant to a formal plan that is expected to have a significant impact on its operating income. A development or redevelopment property is moved back to the same-property pool once a substantial portion of the NOI growth expected from the development or redevelopment is reflected in both the current and comparable prior year period, generally one year after at least 80% of the expected NOI from the project is realized on a cash basis. 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. Same-property cash NOI may include other adjustments as detailed in the Reconciliation of Net Income to cash NOI and same-property cash NOI included in the tables accompanying this press release.
  • EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre: EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre are supplemental, non-GAAP measures utilized by us in various financial ratios. The White Paper on EBITDAre, approved by NAREIT's Board of Governors in September 2017, defines EBITDAre as net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), adjusted for interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, losses and gains on the disposition of depreciated property, impairment write-downs of depreciated property and investments in unconsolidated joint ventures, and adjustments to reflect the entity's share of EBITDAre of unconsolidated joint ventures. EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre 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 they approximate key performance measures in our debt covenants. Accordingly, the Company believes that the use of EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre, as opposed to income before income taxes in various ratios, provides meaningful performance measures related to the Company's ability to meet various coverage tests for the stated periods. Adjusted EBITDAre may include other adjustments not indicative of operating results as detailed in the Reconciliation of Net Income to EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre included in the tables accompanying this press release. The Company also presents the ratio of net debt (net of cash) to annualized Adjusted EBITDAre as of September 30, 2018, and net debt (net of cash) to total market capitalization, which it believes is useful to investors as a supplemental measure in evaluating the Company's balance sheet leverage. The presentation of EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre is consistent with EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as presented in prior periods.

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

Operating 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 are 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 83 properties for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 and 75 properties for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017. 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 under contract to be sold 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.

(1)

  Weighted average diluted shares used to calculate FFO per share and FFO as Adjusted per share for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and the three months ended September 30, 2017 are higher than the GAAP weighted average diluted shares as a result of the dilutive impact of LTIP and OP units which may be redeemed for our common stock. These redeemable units are not included in the weighted average diluted share count for GAAP purposes because their inclusion is anti-dilutive. LTIP and OP units are included for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 as their inclusion is dilutive.
(2) Amount for the three months ended September 30, 2018 reflects the write-off of $16.5 million of below-market intangible liabilities (classified within property rental revenue), partially offset by a $9.5 million lease termination payment (classified within property operating expense). The amount for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 includes the write-off of $21.6 million of below-market intangible liabilities, partially offset by $15.5 million of lease termination payments and $1.0 million of a provision for doubtful accounts for reserves recorded on straight-line rents.
(3) Amount reflects costs associated with hiring a new Chief Operating Officer and a new President of Development and severance expenses related to the termination of a prior executive.
(4) The amount reflects insurance proceeds net of losses as a result of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico in September 2017 and a tornado in Wilkes-Barre, PA, in June 2018:
