Urban Edge Properties Reports First Quarter 2020 Results

Company Release - 4/29/2020 4:15 PM ET

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Urban Edge Properties (NYSE: UE) (the "Company") today announced its results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

"As the situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rapidly evolve, our focus remains on the health and safety of our employees, our tenants, the communities in which we operate, and UE’s stakeholders,” said Jeff Olson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We thank everyone who is on the frontlines and performing essential work during this challenging time. We also appreciate the outstanding dedication and effort of our entire team in all they are doing, both for UE and for our local communities."

"Looking ahead, our strong balance sheet, significant liquidity of $1 billion and low leverage structure consisting of single asset, non-recourse mortgages on only 32 of our 78 properties position us well to weather the disruption in our sector. We have a strong and diversified tenant base that is anchored by high-volume, value and essential retailers. Our experienced management team is cycle-tested, having been through many downturns, and is tackling the challenges in front of us, while taking prudent steps to preserve liquidity, reduce expenses and best position the Company for the long term," Mr. Olson concluded.

Financial Results(1)(2)

  • Generated net income of $51.3 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2020 compared to net income of $27.9 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019.
  • Generated Funds from Operations applicable to diluted common shareholders ("FFO") of $34.8 million, or $0.27 per share, for the quarter compared to $36.5 million, or $0.29 per share, for the first quarter of 2019.
  • Generated FFO as Adjusted of $34.9 million, or $0.28 per share, for the quarter compared to $37.1 million, or $0.29 per share, for the first quarter of 2019.

Operating Results(1)(3)

  • Reported a decline of 0.7% in same-property cash Net Operating Income ("NOI") including properties in redevelopment compared to the first quarter of 2019. This metric was negatively impacted by 230 basis points due to an increase in bad debt expense.
  • Reported a decline of 1.1% in same-property cash NOI excluding properties in redevelopment compared to the first quarter of 2019. This metric was negatively impacted by 240 basis points due to an increase in bad debt expense.
  • Reported same-property portfolio occupancy of 93.4%, an increase of 30 basis points compared to December 31, 2019 and a decrease of 100 basis points compared to March 31, 2019.
  • Reported consolidated portfolio occupancy of 92.8%, a decrease of 10 basis points compared to December 31, 2019 and a decrease of 110 basis points compared to March 31, 2019.
  • Executed 34 new leases, renewals and options totaling 588,000 square feet ("sf") during the quarter. Same-space leases totaled 586,000 sf and generated average rent spreads of 19.1% on a GAAP basis and 9.2% on a cash basis.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity(1)(4)(5)

The Company maintains one of the strongest and most liquid balance sheets in the sector. The Company has $643 million of cash on hand and 46 unencumbered properties that generated approximately $20 million of NOI in the first quarter, providing significant liquidity to navigate the evolving market environment. In addition, other than its line of credit, the Company’s outstanding indebtedness is made up entirely of 32 separate non-recourse mortgages aggregating $1.6 billion which provide flexibility on an asset-by-asset basis.

Balance sheet highlights as of March 31, 2020, include:

  • Total liquidity of approximately $1 billion, comprising $643 million of cash on hand and $350 million available under our revolving credit agreement.
  • In March, the Company drew $250 million on its $600 million revolving credit facility, which does not expire until 2024.
  • Net debt to Adjusted Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization for real estate ("EBITDAre") of 5.9x.
  • Total market capitalization of approximately $3.0 billion, comprised of 122.9 million fully-diluted common shares valued at $1.1 billion and $1.9 billion of debt.
  • Net debt to total market capitalization of 42%.

Development and Redevelopment

During the quarter, the Company executed a lease with ShopRite at Huntington Commons and leases with Bed Bath & Beyond and buybuy Baby at Plaza at Woodbridge.

The Company has $52.8 million of active redevelopment projects under way, of which $16 million remains to be funded. These projects are expected to generate an 8% unleveraged yield.

The Company’s previously communicated plan to spend approximately $100 to $125 million annually over the next three years on redevelopment initiatives is being reevaluated. The Company is under no obligation to execute and fund any of the projects currently identified in its redevelopment pipeline. The Company has updated many of its active project stabilization dates to reflect the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on its contractors, tenants and vendors.

Acquisition and Disposition Activity

In February, the Company acquired Kingswood Center and Kingswood Crossing for $165 million. The properties are located along Kings Highway in the Midwood neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. The properties encompass more than 335,000 sf, including 106,000 sf of retail space anchored by leading retailers including TJ Maxx, Target and Marshalls, and 133,000 sf of Class A office space. The retail space is 100% occupied and the office space is 65% occupied. The properties include over 250 below grade parking spaces, across 98,000 sf, and the potential to add up to 60,000 sf of office or residential development. As part of the acquisitions, the Company assumed a $65.5 million mortgage that matures in 2028.

During the quarter, the Company sold three non-core properties for $61 million. The weighted average cap rate on properties sold during the quarter was approximately 7.6%.

Proceeds from the dispositions, in addition to proceeds generated from some of the Company’s non-core asset sales in 2019, were used to acquire Kingswood Center and Kingswood Crossing via 1031 exchanges and allowed for the deferral of capital gains resulting from these sales.

Financing and Investing Activities

During the quarter, the Company’s Board of Trustees authorized a share repurchase program for up to $200 million of the Company’s common shares. Total purchases made under the program to date aggregate 5.9 million common shares at a weighted average share price of $9.22 for a total of $54.1 million.

Dividend Policy

As a result of COVID-19 and the future uncertainties it has generated, the Company has temporarily suspended quarterly dividend distributions. The Company’s Board of Trustees will continue to monitor the Company’s financial performance and economic outlook and, at a later date, intends to reinstate a regular quarterly dividend of at least the amount required to continue qualifying as a REIT for US federal income tax purposes.

COVID-19 Business Update

As of April 27, 2020, the Company has collected 56% of April 2020 base rents and monthly tenant expense reimbursements and 55% of the portfolio’s gross leasable area (46% as measured by annualized base rent ("ABR")) remained open for business. The Company has evaluated all of the tenant categories that comprise total ABR and believes that approximately 42% is derived from essential businesses. Additional information related to the COVID-19 outbreak is included in the quarterly supplemental disclosure package which can be found on the Company's website (www.uedge.com).

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 real estate investment trusts ("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 depreciable real estate and land when connected to the main business of a REIT, impairments on depreciable real estate or land related to a REIT's main business and 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 diminishes 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 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 non-cash rental income and expense, and income or expenses that we do not believe are representative of ongoing operating results, if any. In addition, the Company uses cash NOI margin, calculated as cash NOI divided by total revenue, which the Company believes is useful to investors for similar reasons.
  • 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, which total 73 properties for the quarters ended March 31, 2020 and 2019. 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 or 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 March 31, 2020, 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 include leases signed, but for which rent has not yet commenced. Same-property portfolio occupancy includes properties that have been owned and operated for the entirety of the reporting periods being compared, which total 73 properties for the quarters ended March 31, 2020 and 2019. Occupancy metrics presented for the Company's same-property 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 or properties 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.
