INVESTMENT ACTIVITY
Acquisitions
In 2016, the Company completed $408.3 million of acquisitions, primarily on an unencumbered basis, with a weighted average ABR per occupied square foot of $22.20. These acquisitions included seven high quality, multi-tenant retail assets, the fee interest in an existing multi-tenant retail property and the anchor space improvements, which were previously subject to a ground lease with the Company, at an existing multi-tenant retail property. The acquisitions are located in the Chicago, New York, Dallas and Seattle Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA) and the greater Washington, D.C. area, expanding the Company’s multi-tenant retail footprint in its target markets by 1.0 million square feet.  These properties possess strong demographic profiles, with weighted average household income of $109,000 and weighted average population of 84,000 within a three-mile radius.

During the quarter, the Company closed on the first phase of the previously announced acquisition of One Loudoun Downtown, located in the Washington, D.C. MSA, for a gross purchase price of $125.0 million.  The Company remains under contract for the remaining phases at One Loudoun Downtown, representing an aggregate gross purchase price of up to $35.5 million. These transactions are expected to close throughout the first three quarters of 2017 as the seller completes construction on stand-alone buildings at the property.

Subsequent to year end, the Company completed the previously announced acquisition of Main Street Promenade, located in the heart of Downtown Naperville, Illinois in the Chicago MSA, for a gross purchase price of $88.0 million. Main Street Promenade is a 182,000 square foot mixed-use project that includes approximately 103,000 square feet of retail and approximately 79,000 square feet of office, as well as an adjacent vacant parcel identified for future redevelopment that is entitled for up to 80,000 square feet of mixed-use space. Downtown Naperville is located just 30 miles from Chicago and is the destination of choice for shopping, dining and relaxation with over 100 national and boutique stores, 40 national and local restaurants and 300 businesses, epitomizing the work, shop, play lifestyle. The property is currently 93.1% occupied and is located within a “super-zip”, one of the most affluent and well-educated zip codes in the country, and boasts average household income of $130,000 and population of 215,000 within a five-mile radius.

Dispositions

These transactions are expected to close in the first quarter of 2017, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

SCHAUMBURG TOWERS
On January 19, 2017, the Company announced that the office property formerly known as Zurich Towers has been renamed Schaumburg Towers. Additionally, the Company signed two new leases with Great American Insurance Group and Swiss Re for approximately 78,000 square feet. Schaumburg Towers is an office building with twin 20-story towers totaling approximately 895,000 square feet. The property is located in Schaumburg, Illinois and situated adjacent to Woodfield Mall, a Class A shopping mall easily accessible from two major highways. To date, the Company has re-leased approximately 397,000 square feet of the available 895,000 square feet.

BALANCE SHEET AND CAPITAL MARKETS ACTIVITY
As of December 31, 2016, the Company had approximately $2.0 billion of consolidated indebtedness, which resulted in a net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio of 5.6x, or a net debt and preferred stock to adjusted EBITDA ratio of 6.0x. Consolidated indebtedness had a weighted average contractual interest rate of 4.44% and a weighted average maturity of 5.3 years.

During 2016, the Company executed on numerous significant capital markets initiatives, including the following:

  • In January 2016, closed on a $1.2 billion amended and restated unsecured credit facility, which increased total capacity by $200.0 million, extended the weighted average term by 2.2 years and lowered the weighted average interest rate by 13 basis points;
  • In September 2016, entered into an agreement to issue $200.0 million of senior unsecured notes, consisting of $100.0 million of 10-year 4.08% senior unsecured notes (Notes Due 2026) and $100.0 million of 12-year 4.24% senior unsecured notes (Notes Due 2028), resulting in a weighted average fixed interest rate of 4.16%. The issuance of the Notes Due 2026 occurred on September 30, 2016 and the issuance of the Notes Due 2028 occurred on December 28, 2016;
  • In November 2016, entered into an agreement for a seven-year $200.0 million senior unsecured term loan (Term Loan Due 2023) with an interest rate of London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) plus a credit spread of between 1.70% and 2.55%, based on the Company’s leverage ratio. In January 2017, the Company drew the full balance of the Term Loan Due 2023. In addition, in January 2017, the Company entered into two interest rate swap agreements to effectively fix the interest rate on the Term Loan Due 2023 at 1.2628% plus a credit spread through November 22, 2018;
  • Throughout 2016, repaid or extinguished $321.5 million of mortgage debt without prepayment penalties, excluding amortization, with a weighted average interest rate of 5.47%, of which $191.8 million was repaid during the fourth quarter with a weighted average interest rate of 5.14%;
  • During the fourth quarter, defeased or incurred prepayment penalties related to the extinguishment of $36.4 million of mortgage debt with a weighted average interest rate of 5.55%; and
  • During the fourth quarter, repurchased 591,488 shares of common stock under the Company’s stock repurchase program at an average price per share of $14.93 for a total of approximately $8.8 million.

Subsequent to year end, the Company defeased the $379.4 million IW JV cross-collateralized portfolio of mortgages payable that were scheduled to mature in 2019 and had an interest rate of 7.50%. In connection with this transaction, the Company incurred approximately $60.2 million in defeasance costs. The fair value of these mortgages was approximately $45.1 million higher than the outstanding principal balance as of December 31, 2016.

2017 GUIDANCE
The Company expects to generate net income attributable to common shareholders of $1.15 to $1.20 per share in 2017. The Company expects to generate Operating FFO of $1.00 to $1.05 per share in 2017, based, in part, on the following assumptions:

  • Generate same store NOI growth of 2.0% to 3.0%;
  • Acquire approximately $375 to $475 million of strategic acquisitions in the Company’s target markets;
  • Dispose of approximately $800 to $900 million of assets, including the sale of Schaumburg Towers; and
  • Incur approximately $42 to $44 million of general and administrative expenses.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
As defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), an industry trade group, Funds From Operations (FFO) means net income (loss) computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of depreciable real estate, plus depreciation and amortization and impairment charges on depreciable real estate. The Company has adopted the NAREIT definition in its computation of FFO attributable to common shareholders. The Company believes that, subject to the following limitations, FFO attributable to common shareholders provides a basis for comparing its performance and operations to those of other real estate investment trusts (REITs). The Company believes that FFO attributable to common shareholders, which is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure, provides an additional and useful means to assess the operating performance of REITs. FFO attributable to common shareholders does not represent an alternative to (i) “Net income” or “Net income attributable to common shareholders” as an indicator of the Company’s financial performance, or (ii) “Cash flows from operating activities” in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company’s capacity to fund cash needs, including the payment of dividends.

The Company also reports Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders, which is defined as FFO attributable to common shareholders excluding the impact of discrete non-operating transactions and other events which the Company does not consider representative of the comparable operating results of its real estate operating portfolio, which is its core business platform. Specific examples of discrete non-operating transactions and other events include, but are not limited to, the financial statement impact of gains or losses associated with the early extinguishment of debt or other liabilities, impairment charges to write down the carrying value of assets other than depreciable real estate, actual or anticipated settlement of litigation involving the Company and executive and realignment separation charges, which are otherwise excluded from the Company’s calculation of FFO attributable to common shareholders. The Company believes that Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders, which is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure, provides an additional and useful means to assess the operating performance of REITs. Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders does not represent an alternative to (i) “Net income” or “Net income attributable to common shareholders” as an indicator of the Company’s financial performance, or (ii) “Cash flows from operating activities” in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company’s capacity to fund cash needs, including the payment of dividends. Comparison of the Company’s presentation of Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in definition and application by such REITs.

The Company also reports Net Operating Income (NOI), which it defines as all revenues other than straight-line rental income, amortization of lease inducements, amortization of acquired above and below market lease intangibles and lease termination fee income, less real estate taxes and all operating expenses other than straight-line ground rent expense and amortization of acquired ground lease intangibles, which are non-cash items. NOI consists of Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties. Same Store NOI for the year ended December 31, 2016 represents NOI from the Company’s same store portfolio consisting of 140 retail operating properties acquired or placed in service and stabilized prior to January 1, 2015. NOI from Other Investment Properties for the year ended December 31, 2016 represents NOI primarily from properties acquired during 2015 and 2016, the Company’s one remaining office property, three properties where the Company has begun redevelopment and/or activities in anticipation of future redevelopment, the properties that were sold or held for sale in 2015 and 2016, the net income from the Company’s wholly-owned captive insurance company and the historical ground rent expense related to an existing same store investment property that was subject to a ground lease with a third party prior to the Company’s acquisition of the fee interest on April 29, 2016. For the three months ended December 31, 2016, the Company’s same store portfolio consists of 147 retail operating properties inclusive of the same store portfolio for the year ended December 31, 2016 and seven additional retail operating properties that were acquired during the nine months ended September 30, 2015. The financial results reported in Other Investment Properties for the three months ended December 31, 2016 are inclusive of the topics described above for the year ended December 31, 2016 excluding the seven investment properties that were acquired during the nine months ended September 30, 2015. The Company believes that NOI, Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties, which are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, provide an additional and useful operating perspective not immediately apparent from “Operating income” or “Net income attributable to common shareholders” in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses these measures to evaluate its performance on a property-by-property basis because they allow management to evaluate the impact that factors such as lease structure, lease rates and tenant base have on the Company’s operating results. NOI, Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties do not represent alternatives to “Net income” or “Net income attributable to common shareholders” in accordance with GAAP as indicators of the Company’s financial performance. Comparison of the Company’s presentation of NOI, Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in definition and application by such REITs.

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure and represents net income attributable to common shareholders before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that the Company does not consider indicative of its ongoing performance. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful because it allows investors and management to evaluate and compare the Company’s performance from period to period in a meaningful and consistent manner in addition to standard financial measurements under GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to “Net income attributable to common shareholders” as an indicator of the Company’s financial performance. Comparison of the Company’s presentation of Adjusted EBITDA to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in definition and application by such REITs.

Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure and represents (i) the Company’s total notional debt, excluding unamortized premium, discount and capitalized loan fees, less cash and cash equivalents divided by (ii) Adjusted EBITDA for the prior three months, annualized. The Company believes that this ratio is useful because it provides investors with information regarding its total notional debt net of cash and cash equivalents, which could be used to repay debt, compared to its performance as measured using Adjusted EBITDA. Comparison of the Company’s presentation of Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in definition and application by such REITs.

Net Debt and Preferred Stock to Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure and represents (i) the Company’s total notional debt, excluding unamortized premium, discount and capitalized loan fees, plus preferred stock, less cash and cash equivalents divided by (ii) Adjusted EBITDA for the prior three months, annualized. The Company believes that this ratio is useful because it provides investors with information regarding its total notional debt and preferred stock, net of cash and cash equivalents, which could be used to repay debt, compared to its performance as measured using Adjusted EBITDA. Comparison of the Company’s presentation of Net Debt and Preferred Stock to Adjusted EBITDA to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in definition and application by such REITs.
