Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Fiscal 2019 Operating Results

December 18, 2019 GMT

GREENWICH, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 18, 2019--

Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc. (NYSE: UBA and UBP), a real estate investment trust, today announced its fourth quarter and full year financial results for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2019.

Net income applicable to Class A Common and Common stockholders for the quarter ended October 31, 2019 was $3,206,000, or $0.08 per diluted Class A Common share and $0.07 per diluted Common share, compared to $5,119,000, or $0.14 per diluted Class A Common share and $0.12 per diluted Common share in last year’s fourth quarter.

For the year ended October 31, 2019, net income applicable to Class A Common and Common stockholders was $22,128,000, or $0.58 per diluted Class A Common share and $0.52 per diluted Common share, compared to $25,217,000, or $0.67 per diluted Class A Common share and $0.60 per diluted Common share in fiscal 2018.

Highlights for 4 th Quarter 2019:

Funds from operations (“FFO”) for the quarter ended October 31, 2019 was $10,997,000 or $0.29 per diluted Class A Common share and $0.26 per diluted Common share ($0.35 per Class A Common share and $0.31 per Common share, excluding the $2.4 million reduction in net income available to Common and Class A Common Stockholders related to the redemption of the 6.75% Series G preferred stock), compared with $12,561,000, or $0.33 per diluted Class A Common share and $0.30 per diluted Common share in last year’s fourth quarter.

For the year ended October 31, 2019, FFO was $51,955,000, or $1.37 per diluted Class A Common share and $1.22 per diluted Common share ($1.43 per Class A Common share and $1.27 per Common share, excluding the $2.4 million reduction in net income available to Common and Class A Common Stockholders related to the redemption of the 6.75% Series G preferred stock), compared to $55,171,000, or $1.47 per diluted Class A Common share and $1.30 per diluted Common share ($1.37 per Class A Common share and $1.22 per Common share, excluding the $3.7 million in lease termination income received from Acme in the corresponding period of fiscal 2018).

FFO, Adjusted FFO and same property net operating income are non-GAAP supplemental earnings measures which the company considers meaningful in measuring its operating performance. A reconciliation of GAAP net income to FFO to Adjusted FFO and a reconciliation of same property net operating income to net income attributable to Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc. are attached to this press release.

At October 31, 2019, the company’s consolidated properties were 92.9% leased (versus 93.2% at the end of fiscal 2018) and 91.3% occupied (versus 91.7% at the end of fiscal 2018). The drop in the company’s leased rate in fiscal 2019 predominantly resulted from the company’s purchase of Lakeview Plaza Shopping Center, located in Brewster, NY in December 2018. Lakeview had 49,000 square feet of vacancy when the company purchased the property, which, once leased, will provide the company an additional return on its investment. Also at October 31, 2019, the leased percentage treated as leased, and the occupancy percentage treated as unoccupied, 65,700 square feet of retail space (1.4% of our consolidated square footage) formerly occupied pursuant to a long-term ground lease by Toys R’ Us and Babies R’ Us at the company’s Danbury Square Shopping Center in Danbury, CT. After Toys R’ Us and Babies R’ Us filed for bankruptcy in fiscal 2017, this ground lease was purchased in August 2018 from Toys R’ Us and Babies R’ Us by a real estate investor unrelated to the company. The lease rate for the 65,700 square foot space was and remains at $0 for the duration of the ground lease, and the company did not have any other leases with Toys R’ Us or Babies R’ Us. Accordingly, the company’s net income and FFO were not impacted. As of the date of this press release, the investor has not leased the space.

Both the percentage of property leased and the percentage of property occupied referenced in the preceding paragraph exclude the company’s unconsolidated joint ventures. At October 31, 2019, the company had equity interests in six unconsolidated joint ventures (726,000 square feet), which were 96.1% leased (versus 96.3% at the end of fiscal 2018).

Commenting on the operating results, Willing L. Biddle, President and CEO of Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc., said “We had another strong operating quarter in the fourth quarter of 2019. Although our FFO is down when compared with the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, and year to date when compared to last year’s annual period, there were one-time transactions in each of those years that affected the results. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, we completed a very successful financing transaction by issuing a new series of preferred stock. Our new Series K preferred stock has a coupon rate of 5.875%, making us one of the only non-rated companies to issue perpetual preferred stock with an interest rate below 6%, which we believe demonstrates the financial strength of our company. Concurrent with the issuance of the Series K preferred stock, we gave notice that we would be redeeming our higher yielding 6.75% Series G preferred stock, which will save the company over $656,000 per annum in preferred stock dividends on the refinanced portion. However, as a result, the company incurred a $2.4 million reduction in income available to common and class A common shareholders in its fiscal 2019 fourth quarter related to the original Series G issue costs. Through dividend savings, we will recoup this redemption cost in approximately 3.6 years, and thereafter continue to indefinitely enjoy such savings. This financing transaction, coupled with our fiscal 2018 receipt of a $3.7 million lease termination payment from Acme at our Newark, NJ property, were the key reasons for the negative variance in our FFO. We re-leased that Acme space to Seabra Supermarkets, the preeminent Portuguese supermarket operator, which opened a newly-built supermarket in June 2019. With these one-time transactions removed, our fourth quarter 2019 Adjusted FFO increased by 6.4% on a dollar value basis and 5.6% on a Class A Common per share basis when compared with our operating results in last year’s fourth quarter, and our full year 2019 Adjusted FFO increased by 5.5% on a dollar value basis and 4.5% on a Class A Common per share basis when compared with last year. The FFO increases were the result of net operating income generated from property acquisitions in fiscal 2018 and the first quarter of fiscal 2019, as well as organic net operating income growth in our existing portfolio, in particular one significant grocery tenant lease renewal in the early part of fiscal 2019 at a significantly higher rent. In addition, the FFO increases were bolstered by the sale of our small marketable securities portfolio in the first quarter of fiscal 2019, which resulted in a gain of $403,000.”

Mr. Biddle continued: “Leasing the vacant space in our portfolio is management’s number one focus at this time. This quarter, we signed leases for 171,000 square feet of vacant space in our portfolio. Of the remaining 353,000 square feet of vacancy in our portfolio, we have approximately 21,000 square feet in the lease negotiation stage, and we are negotiating letters of intent with potential tenants for an additional 131,000 square feet. In the first quarter of fiscal 2019, we purchased the Lakeview Plaza Shopping Center located in Brewster, NY. Lakeview Plaza is a 177,000 square foot shopping center that is anchored by a 45,000 square foot Acme Supermarket. This property, which we purchased at auction, consists of five buildings on a 23-acre site. We purchased this property at an attractive going-in yield. At the time of purchase, this property had 49,000 square feet of vacancy, of which we have a lease for a 6,200 square foot space in final stages of negotiation. It remains our top priority to lease the remaining 42,800 square feet of vacancy as quickly as possible, which we believe will be facilitated by the fact that we are nearing completion of significant capital improvements at this property. We currently have letters of intent out for an additional 18,000 square feet of this space, and we are hopeful that we will move shortly to lease negotiation and execution. If we are able to lease all of the inherited vacancy at Lakeview, we estimate that we could add another $1-$1.3 million to this property’s net operating income, which would improve our investment return for this property to over 13%. In addition, this quarter we recaptured a 30,000 square foot store in Eastchester, NY from Acme and delivered it to DeCicco’s Supermarkets, a premier regional supermarket operator. DeCicco’s will completely renovate the space and will pay a rent substantially higher than Acme. We continue to actively pursue investment properties meeting our geographic and financial parameters.”

UBP Announces an Increase in Dividends to its Shareholders for the Twenty-Sixth Consecutive Year

At its regular December meeting, the company’s Board of Directors approved an increase in the quarterly dividend rate on shares of the company’s Class A Common stock and Common stock.

The Class A Common and Common dividends are payable January 17, 2020 to stockholders of record on January 3, 2020.

All other properties are included in the property acquisition/sales column. There are no properties excluded from the analysis.

Revenues

Base rents increased by 3.5% to $99.3 million in fiscal 2019, as compared with $95.9 million in the comparable period of 2018. The increase in base rents and the changes in other income statement line items were attributable to:

Property Acquisitions and Properties Sold:

In fiscal 2018, the company purchased three properties totaling 53,700 square feet of GLA. In fiscal 2019, the company purchased one property totaling 177,000 square feet and sold one property totaling 10,100 square feet. These properties accounted for all of the revenue and expense changes attributable to property acquisitions and sales in the fiscal year ended 2019 when compared with fiscal 2018.

Properties Held in Both Periods:

Revenues

Base Rent

The net increase in base rents for the fiscal year ended 2019 when compared to the corresponding prior period, was predominantly caused by positive leasing activity at several properties held in both periods, accentuated by a lease renewal with a grocery-store tenant at a significantly higher rent than the expiring period rent, both of which created a positive variance in base rent.

In fiscal 2019, the company leased or renewed approximately 676,000 square feet (or approximately 14.8% of total consolidated property leasable area). At October 31, 2019, the company’s consolidated properties were 92.9% leased (93.2% leased at October 31, 2018).

Tenant Recoveries

In the fiscal year ended 2019, recoveries from tenants (which represent reimbursements from tenants for operating expenses and property taxes) increased by $549,000 when compared with the corresponding prior period. This increase was a result of an increase in property tax expense caused by an increase in property tax assessments, predominantly related to properties the company owns in Stamford, CT. This increase was partially offset by a decrease in property operating expenses mostly related to a decrease in snow removal costs at our properties owned in both periods.

Lease Termination Income

In April 2018, the company reached agreement with the grocery tenant at our Newark, NJ property to terminate its 63,000 square foot lease in exchange for a one-time $3.7 million lease termination payment, which the company received and recorded as revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2018. Also in March 2018, the company leased that same space to a new grocery store operator who took possession in May 2018. While the rental rate on the new lease is 30% less than the rental rate on the terminated lease, the company hopes that part of this decreased rental rate will be recaptured with the receipt of percentage rent in subsequent years as the store matures and its sales increase. The new lease required no landlord work or tenant improvement allowance.

Expenses

Property Operating

In fiscal year ended October 31, 2019, property operating expenses decreased by $1.1 million when compared with the corresponding prior periods, predominantly as a result of a decrease in snow removal costs at our properties owned in both periods.

Property Taxes

In the fiscal year ended October 31, 2019, property taxes increased by $1.4 million when compared with the corresponding prior period, as a result of an increase in property tax assessments for a number of our properties owned in both periods, specifically those located in Stamford, CT.

Interest

In the fiscal year ended October 31, 2019, interest expense increased by a net $211,000 when compared with the corresponding prior period, as a result of the company having a larger balance drawn on our revolving credit facility for a large portion of fiscal 2019 when compared with the corresponding prior periods, offset by mortgage refinancings at lower interest rates than the refinanced mortgage notes.

Depreciation and Amortization

In the fiscal year ended October 31, 2019, depreciation and amortization decreased by $809,000 when compared with the prior period, primarily as a result of increased ASC Topic 805 amortization expense for lease intangibles in fiscal year ended October 31, 2018 for a tenant who vacated the property and whose lease was terminated.

General and Administrative Expenses

General and administrative expense was relatively unchanged in the fiscal year ended October 31, 2019 when compared with the corresponding prior period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure
Funds from Operations (“FFO”)

The company considers FFO to be an additional measure of our operating performance. We report FFO in addition to net income applicable to common stockholders and net cash provided by operating activities. Management has adopted the definition suggested by The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) and defines FFO to mean net income (computed in accordance with GAAP) excluding gains or losses from sales of property, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures.

Management considers FFO a meaningful, additional measure of operating performance because it primarily excludes the assumption that the value of the company’s real estate assets diminishes predictably over time and industry analysts have accepted it as a performance measure. FFO is presented to assist investors in analyzing the performance of the company. It is helpful as it excludes various items included in net income that are not indicative of our operating performance, such as gains (or losses) from sales of property and depreciation and amortization. However, FFO:

FFO as defined by us may not be comparable to similarly titled items reported by other real estate investment trusts due to possible differences in the application of the NAREIT definition used by such REITs.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure
Funds from Operations, as Adjusted (“Adjusted FFO”)

The company provides disclosure of Adjusted FFO because it believes it is a useful supplemental measure of its operating performance that facilitates comparability of historical financial periods. Adjusted FFO is calculated by making certain adjustments to FFO to account for items that company does not believe are representative of ongoing operating results, including non-comparable revenue and expenses and reductions in net income for preferred stock redemptions. The company’s method of calculating Adjusted FFO may be different from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs.

The table below provides a reconciliation of net income applicable to Common and Class A Common Stockholders in accordance with GAAP to FFO and from FFO to Adjusted FFO for three month and fiscal years ended October 31, 2019 and 2018.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure
Same Property Net Operating Income (“NOI”)

We present Same Property Net Operating Income (“Same Property NOI”), which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Same Property NOI excludes from Net Operating Income (“NOI”) properties that have not been owned for the full periods presented. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to NOI is operating income. To calculate NOI, operating income is adjusted to add back depreciation and amortization, general and administrative expense, interest expense, amortization of above and below-market lease intangibles and to exclude straight-line rent adjustments, interest, dividends and other investment income, equity in net income of unconsolidated joint ventures, gain/loss on sale of operating properties.

We use Same Property NOI internally as a performance measure and believe Same Property NOI provides useful information to investors regarding our financial condition and results of operations because it reflects only those income and expense items that are incurred at the property level. Our management also uses Same Property NOI to evaluate property level performance and to make decisions about resource allocations. Further, we believe Same Property NOI is useful to investors as a performance measure because, when compared across periods, Same Property NOI reflects the impact on operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs on an unleveraged basis, providing perspective not immediately apparent from income from continuing operations. Same Property NOI excludes certain components from net income attributable to Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc. in order to provide results that are more closely related to a property’s results of operations. For example, interest expense is not necessarily linked to the operating performance of a real estate asset and is often incurred at the corporate level as opposed to the property level. In addition, depreciation and amortization, because of historical cost accounting and useful life estimates, may distort operating performance at the property level. Same Property NOI presented by us may not be comparable to Same Property NOI reported by other REITs that define Same Property NOI differently.
