Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Operating Results

FFO for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013 was $15.1 million and $67.2 million, respectively, up from $14.7 million and $48.8 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

FFO for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 of $0.27 per share included $0.04 of non-cash retirement and $0.02 of acquisition related costs and compares to $0.29 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. FFO of $1.20 for the year ended December 31, 2013 includes an additional $0.04 of acquisition related costs and represents a 15% increase over 2012 of $1.04.

Net Income from Continuing Operations for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013 was $7.6 million and $34.0 million, respectively, as compared to $8.4 million and $23.6 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

EPS from continuing operations for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013 was $0.14 and $0.61, respectively, as compared to $0.17 and $0.51 for the same periods for 2012.

The primary driver behind 2013 earnings growth was income from new investments and Core Portfolio re-anchorings. This was partially offset by 2013 non-cash executive retirement costs and a non-recurring gain in 2012 relating to the receipt of property casualty insurance proceeds in excess of carrying costs.

Refer to the Financial Highlights below for further detail on operating results and additional disclosures related to FFO.

Core Portfolio – Closes on $221 Million of Street Retail in Chicago, Manhattan and Washington D.C.; Strong Operating Results

Fourth Quarter Acquisitions in Manhattan and Chicago; Sells A&P Anchored Shopping Center

During and subsequent to the fourth quarter, Acadia closed on four previously announced Core Portfolio acquisitions for an aggregate purchase price of $100.0 million. These acquisitions, combined with those previously announced earlier during 2013, account for $220.9 million of Core Portfolio acquisitions for the year.

In addition, the Company has an additional $92.1 million of Core Portfolio acquisitions currently under contract. Although the Company anticipates completing these closings during the first quarter of 2014, these transactions are subject to customary closing conditions, including lender approval for the assumption of existing mortgage debt, and, as such, no assurance can be given that the Company will successfully complete these acquisitions.

Details of the fourth quarter acquisitions are as follows:

New York

120 West Broadway – During December, Acadia purchased the master lease for the retail portion of this cooperative located in the Manhattan neighborhood of Tribeca for $37.0 million. The building has 14,000 square feet of retail space with frontage on West Broadway, Hudson, Duane and Reade Streets. The property is anchored by high quality tenants including HSBC and Citibank. The Company acquired the asset off-market as part of a private negotiation and funded its investment primarily with Operating Partnership Units.

868 Broadway – The Company acquired this retail condominium unit for $13.5 million during December. The 2,000 square foot retail asset is located just north of Union Square in Manhattan’s prime Midtown-South submarket, and is 100% leased to Dr. Martens, a 50 year old British footwear and apparel brand.

313-315 Bowery – Additionally, during December, Acadia purchased a long-term leasehold interest in this 7,900 square foot street retail property for $5.5 million. The property is currently occupied by John Varvatos and Patagonia and is located in the heart of the Bowery corridor.

Chicago

11 East Walton Street – During the fourth quarter, Acadia entered into a contract to acquire approximately 6,700 square feet of luxury retail space at the base of the Waldorf Astoria Chicago, formerly the Elysian Hotel, for $44.0 million. The property is located at the corner of Rush and Walton Streets, proximate to several prior Acadia acquisitions, and is 100% occupied by Marc Jacobs, Saint Laurent and Perchance Boutique. The Company closed on this acquisition during January 2014.

Same-Store NOI and Occupancy

Core Portfolio same-store NOI increased 7.2% year-to-date and 4.3% for the fourth quarter of 2013 as compared to the same periods in 2012.

At December 31, 2013, Acadia’s Core Portfolio was 95.2% occupied and 97.1% leased when including space leased but not yet occupied. This was up from 94.0% occupied and 95.7% leased as of September 30, 2013.

Rent Spreads on New and Renewal Leases

The Company realized an increase in average rents on a GAAP basis, which includes the effect of the straight-lining of rents, of 18.3% on 340,000 square feet of new and renewal leases executed during the year ended December 31, 2013. On a contractual rent basis, which excludes straight-line rent, the Company experienced an increase of 6.8% in average rents for these same leases. For the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company realized an increase in average rents of 9.9% on a GAAP basis and 4.4% on a cash basis.

Core Portfolio Asset Recycling

During the fourth quarter, the Company completed the sale of the A&P Shopping Center located in Boonton, New Jersey for $18.4 million. Acadia purchased a 60% interest in this property during 2006 for $8.4 million, consisting of $3.2 million of cash and its $5.2 million share of the existing mortgage debt.

Structured Financing Portfolio

As of December 31, 2013, the Company’s structured financing portfolio totaled $126.7 million. During the year ended December 31, 2013, the portfolio, excluding those investments in the Funds, increased a net $27.7 million. This was a result of the origination of $45.0 million in new notes and preferred equity investments, offset by $17.3 million of repayments.

Of the year-end outstanding balance, $7.2 million was repaid during January 2014 and $38.0 million is anticipated to be converted into an equity investment during the first quarter of 2014, following which, the remaining balance of the portfolio will be $81.5 million.

Fund Platform – 2013 Year-to-date Acquisitions totaling $123.2 Million; Continued Monetization of Fund II Assets

Fund IV New Investments

During the fourth quarter 2013, consistent with its location-driven acquisition strategies, Fund IV invested in two street retail value-add assets and one opportunistic, high-yield property.

1151 Third Avenue – During October, Fund IV completed the acquisition of this street retail property in Manhattan located on the northeast corner of 67th Street and Third Avenue for a purchase price of $18.0 million. This 12,300 square foot property is currently occupied by Lucky Brand Jeans and Flywheel.

938 W. North Avenue – During November, Fund IV, in partnership with an unaffiliated entity, completed the acquisition of 938 W. North Avenue, located in Chicago for $20.0 million. This 33,000 square foot street retail property located on the northeast corner of North Avenue and Sheffield Road in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago is currently occupied by Sephora and Restoration Hardware and includes an underground parking garage.

Lake Montclair – During October, Fund IV completed the opportunistic acquisition of a 106,000 square foot Food Lion anchored property located in Prince William County, Virginia, for a purchase price of $19.3 million.

Fund II Continued Monetization

During the fourth quarter, Fund II completed the disposition of Fordham Place and the retail portion of the Pelham Manor Shopping Plaza for a combined sales price of $192.4 million. The Fund developed these properties in connection with its New York Urban/Infill Redevelopment Initiative.

Balance Sheet – Achieving Growth While Maintaining Low Leverage

Consistent with its conservative balance sheet management practices, Acadia funded the above-mentioned Core Portfolio and co-investment share of Fund acquisitions during 2013 with approximately two-thirds equity. This was sourced primarily through a combination of (i) Common Shares issued under the Company’s at-the-market (“ATM”) stock offering program and Operating Partnership Units aggregating $114.3 million at an average net price of $26.92 per share/unit, and (ii) $46.9 million of recycled capital from fourth quarter Core Portfolio and Fund asset sales.

Acadia continues to maintain a solid balance sheet with available liquidity and low leverage, providing it with additional flexibility in using the most efficient source of capital based on pricing and availability to fund its acquisition activities during 2014. This is evidenced by the following as of December 31, 2013:

  • Combined Net Debt to Total Market Capitalization of 24%
  • Core Portfolio Net Debt to EBITDA ratio of 4.3x
  • Including the Company’s Core Portfolio debt and pro-rata share of the Company’s Fund debt (“Combined”), a Combined Net Debt to EBITDA ratio of 4.9x
  • Combined fixed-charge coverage ratio of 3.1x to 1
  • During the fourth quarter, the Company amended its $150.0 million unsecured credit facility, which it closed on in January 2013 to include an additional $50.0 million term loan. The term loan bears interest at rates which vary from LIBOR plus 140 basis points to LIBOR plus 215 basis points depending on the level of the Company’s leverage.
  • The Company had total liquidity of $218.0 million, including $35.5 million of cash on hand and $182.5 million available under its existing credit facilities, excluding the Funds’ cash and credit facilities.

Outlook –Earnings Guidance for 2014

The Company forecasts its 2014 annual FFO will range from $1.30 to $1.40 per share and 2014 EPS from $0.68 to $0.77. The following table summarizes management’s 2014 guidance (dollars in millions, except per share amounts):

 
      2014     2013
Low     High     Actual
Core and pro-rata share of Funds’ portfolio income $ 80.5     $ 85.0 $ 70.3
Asset and property management fee income, net of taxes 14.5 15.0 17.6
Transactional fee income, net of taxes 6.0 6.5 6.3
Promote income from Funds, RCP Venture and
other income, net of taxes 0.5 1.0 (0.6 )
General and administrative expenses   (25.5 )       (25.0 )       (26.4 )
FFO $ 76.0       $ 82.5       $ 67.2  
FFO per share $ 1.30       $ 1.40       $ 1.20  
 

The following is a reconciliation of the calculation of forecasted earnings per diluted share and FFO per diluted share:

 

Guidance Range for 2014

      Low     High
Earnings per share $ 0.68     $ 0.77
Depreciation of real estate and amortization of leasing costs:
Wholly owned and consolidated partnerships 0.55 0.55
Unconsolidated partnerships 0.06 0.07
Noncontrolling interest in Operating Partnership   0.01       0.01
FFO per share $ 1.30     $ 1.40
 

Forecasted new Core Portfolio and Fund investments are anticipated to be key drivers of 2014 earnings growth. In addition, the Company is assuming an increase in same-store NOI for the Core Portfolio between 3.5% and 4.5% for the year. Management will discuss its 2014 earnings guidance and related assumptions in further detail on its scheduled year-end investor conference call.

Management Comments

“During 2013, we made continued progress on both our core and fund strategies,” stated Kenneth F. Bernstein, President and CEO of Acadia Realty Trust. “For example, we continued to elevate our core portfolio, completing $221 million of street-retail acquisitions in the metro areas of New York, Chicago, and Washington DC, where more than 70% of our portfolio value is now concentrated. Together with our already-strong asset base, our core portfolio is well positioned to deliver reliable – and ultimately, above-average – growth both in the near and long term, as demonstrated by our fourth quarter operating results. Just as importantly, we are pleased with the assets acquired to date through Fund IV. These new acquisitions, coupled with our well-balanced existing fund portfolio of ground-up developments, re-anchorings, and high-yielding assets, should generate a significant amount of organic growth over the next few years, further magnified by the deployment of Fund IV’s remaining capital commitments.”

Notes (continued):

2 Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue Common Shares were exercised or converted into Common Shares. The effect of the conversion of Common OP Units is not reflected in the above table as they are exchangeable for Common Shares on a one-for-one basis. The income allocable to such units is allocated on the same basis and reflected as noncontrolling interests in the consolidated financial statements. As such, the assumed conversion of these units would have no net impact on the determination of diluted earnings per share.

3 The Company considers funds from operations (“FFO”) as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) and net property operating income (“NOI”) to be appropriate supplemental disclosures of operating performance for an equity REIT due to their widespread acceptance and use within the REIT and analyst communities. FFO and NOI are presented to assist investors in analyzing the performance of the Company. They are helpful as they exclude various items included in net income that are not indicative of the operating performance, such as gains (losses) from sales of depreciated property, depreciation and amortization, and impairment of depreciable real estate. In addition, NOI excludes interest expense. The Company’s method of calculating FFO and NOI may be different from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs. FFO does not represent cash generated from operations as defined by generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and is not indicative of cash available to fund all cash needs, including distributions. It should not be considered as an alternative to net income for the purpose of evaluating the Company’s performance or to cash flows as a measure of liquidity. Consistent with the NAREIT definition, the Company defines FFO as net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (losses) from sales of depreciated property, plus depreciation and amortization, impairment of depreciable real estate, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

4 In addition to the weighted average Common Shares outstanding, basic and diluted FFO also assume full conversion of a weighted average 620 and 566 OP Units into Common Shares for the quarters ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively and 618 and 604 OP Units into Common Shares for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Diluted FFO also includes the assumed conversion of Preferred OP Units into 25 Common Shares for each of the quarters and years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012. In addition, diluted FFO also includes the effect of 350 and 511 employee share options, restricted share units and LTIP units for the quarters ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively and 392 and 456 employee share options, restricted share units and LTIP units for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.
