"We continue to enjoy tremendous success on the leasing and operating fronts in the first quarter of 2013, as well as subsequent to quarter-end, putting us on track to exceed our leasing plan again in 2013," said Alan D. Gold, BioMed Realty's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "That strong performance continues to drive top-line and bottom-line results, including a double-digit increase in core FFO per diluted share in the first quarter."

Mr. Gold continued, "Importantly, we continue to invest in our business to provide future growth.  In the first quarter and looking forward, we continue to identify and execute on attractive new investment opportunities that we believe can provide very compelling risk-adjusted returns.  Most notably, we look forward to joining forces with Wexford Science & Technology, which brings a high-quality operating portfolio that is well-leased and anchored by top-tier research institutions, as well as an attractive development pipeline that we believe will accelerate our growth in 2014 and beyond."

Portfolio Update

During the quarter ended March 31, 2013, the company executed 29 leasing transactions representing approximately 583,700 square feet, comprised of 16 new leases totaling approximately 419,700 square feet and 13 lease renewals totaling approximately 164,000 square feet.

During the quarter the company acquired two properties:

  • Woodside Technology Park in Redwood City, California for $87.0 million, excluding transaction costs. The property is comprised of three buildings with an aggregate of approximately 256,000 square feet of laboratory and office space, which was 100% leased to five tenants at acquisition; and
  • The Campus at Lincoln Centre in Foster City, California from Life Technologies Corporation for $37.0 million, excluding transaction costs. The company intends to redevelop the 19-acre site, which currently comprises seven buildings aggregating approximately 280,000 square feet.

Same property net operating income on a cash basis increased for the period by 3.5% and the same property leased percentage increased by 310 basis points for the quarter compared to the same period in 2012, primarily as a result of sustained leasing success and contractual rent escalations.   

The total operating portfolio was approximately 91.7% leased on a weighted-average basis as of March 31, 2013. At March 31, 2013, the company's total portfolio comprised approximately 13.2 million rentable square feet with an additional 4.4 million square feet of development potential.

Wexford Science & Technology

During the quarter, the company entered into a definitive agreement to merge with Wexford Science & Technology, LLC, a private real estate investment and development company that owns and develops institutional quality life science real estate for academic and medical research organizations. The aggregate consideration for Wexford Science & Technology is approximately $640 million, excluding transaction costs and subject to adjustment based on working capital levels and construction and development costs incurred prior to closing, comprising:

  • Approximately $551 million for Wexford Science & Technology's operating portfolio, which includes approximately 1.6 million rentable square feet of newly developed research facilities located on or immediately adjacent to leading academic, medical system and research institution campuses, including University of Pennsylvania Health System, Washington University in St. Louis, Wake Forest University, the University of Maryland, the University of Miami, Old Dominion University, the Illinois Institute of Technology and Penn State University. Wexford's operating portfolio was approximately 86% leased at year-end 2012, with an estimated 66% of annualized base rents generated from academic and medical institutions and A-rated life science companies.
  • Approximately $89 million for approximately 935,000 square feet of rentable space in three projects currently under development that are, collectively, approximately 68% pre-leased, and anchored by the University of Pennsylvania Health System, Wake Forest University and Washington University in St. Louis. Wexford Science & Technology also owns parking garages in Philadelphia and Baltimore with 419 and 638 stalls, respectively, that support Wexford Science & Technology's life science developments, and owns additional land parcels that can support an estimated 300,000 square feet in additional development potential.

The company's merger with Wexford Science & Technology is subject to the receipt of lender, ground lessor and other third-party consents, waivers of rights of first offer and customary closing conditions, and the company can offer no assurances that the merger will close on the terms described herein, or at all.

First Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Total revenues for the first quarter were approximately $160.5 million, compared to approximately $120.0 million for the same period in 2012, an increase of 33.7% and the highest in the company's history.  Total revenues include approximately $28.8 million associated with the termination of a lease with Elan Corporation, for which the company received a termination fee of $46.5 million in the second quarter.  Net of the related accelerated amortization of accrued straight-line rents and lease intangibles, the termination fee is expected to increase FFO by approximately $35.2 million, of which approximately $21.6 million ($0.12 per diluted share) was recognized during the three months ended March 31, 2013.  The balance is expected to be recognized in the second quarter of 2013.

Rental revenues for the first quarter were approximately $103.0 million, compared to approximately $91.5 million for the same period in 2012, an increase of 12.6%.  

As a result of the redemption in full of the company's Series A preferred stock in the first quarter, the company was required to expense the Series A preferred stock initial offering costs, which resulted in a redemption charge of approximately $6.5 million ($0.037 per diluted share).  The company also recorded a non-cash expense of $2.8 million ($0.016 per diluted share) related to an investment in a privately-held life science company.

CFFO for the first quarter was $0.42 per diluted share, compared to $0.30 per diluted share for the same period in 2012, an increase of 40.0%. FFO per share, calculated in accordance with standards established by NAREIT, was $0.41 per diluted share, as compared to $0.30 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2012, an increase of 36.7%.  AFFO for the quarter was $0.47 per diluted share, as compared to $0.30 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2012, an increase of 56.7%.

The company reported net income available to common stockholders for the quarter of approximately $8.4 million, or $0.05 per diluted share.

FFO, CFFO and AFFO are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures used in the real estate industry to measure and compare the operating performance of real estate companies.  A complete reconciliation containing adjustments from GAAP net income available to common stockholders to FFO, CFFO and AFFO and definitions of terms are included at the end of this release. 

Financing Activity

In February 2013, the company raised net proceeds of approximately $287.0 million through the follow-on public offering of 14,605,000 shares of common stock.

In March 2013, the company completed the redemption of all 7,920,000 shares of its Series A preferred stock at $25.30217 per share, equal to the original issuance price of $25.00 per share, plus accrued and unpaid dividends up to the redemption date.

In April 2013, the company completed a follow-on public offering of 17,250,000 shares raising net proceeds of approximately $354.1 million. The company expects to use the net proceeds of the offering to fund a portion of the purchase price of the pending merger with Wexford Science & Technology, to repay a portion of the outstanding indebtedness under its unsecured line of credit and for other general corporate and working capital purposes.

Commenting on the recent capital markets activity, Greg Lubushkin, Chief Financial Officer of BioMed Realty, said, "Our growth in the first quarter and into 2013 is directly attributable to our ongoing leasing success, the ability to leverage our expertise and our relationships, and our strong, flexible balance sheet. The two follow-on equity offerings completed in 2013, which raised in aggregate approximately $641 million in net proceeds, exemplify our prudent approach to managing our leverage that has enabled us to capture attractive growth opportunities which we believe offer superior risk-adjusted returns, such as the Wexford investment. As a result of this activity, we continue to operate our business with very healthy liquidity and one of the strongest credit profiles in the industry."

Quarterly and Annual Distributions

BioMed Realty Trust's board of directors previously declared a first quarter 2013 dividend of $0.235 per share of common stock. The first quarter common share dividend is equivalent to an annualized dividend of $0.94 per common share.

Earnings Guidance

The company's updated 2013 guidance for net income per diluted share, FFO per diluted share and CFFO per diluted share are set forth and reconciled below. Projected net income per diluted share, FFO per diluted share and CFFO per diluted share are based upon estimated, weighted-average diluted common shares outstanding of approximately196.0 million.

These estimates include the following items:

  • Charge taken in the first quarter relating to the March 2013 redemption of Series A preferred stock (approximately $0.04 per diluted share);
  • Non-cash expense related to an investment in a privately-held life science company taken in the first quarter (approximately $0.02 per diluted share);
  • Impact of pre-funding of the March 2013 redemption of the Series A preferred stock through the common stock offering completed in February 2013 (approximately $0.01 per diluted share); and
  • Impact of pre-funding the pending close of the merger with Wexford Science & Technology through the common stock offering completed in April 2013 (approximately $0.02 per diluted share).

On a pro forma basis, the range of projected CFFO per diluted share would be from $1.34 to $1.42 after considering these adjustments.  The company's estimates of CFFO per diluted share also include the following items:

  • Assumed issuance of $250 million in unsecured debt during the second half of 2013 (approximately $0.01 per diluted share); and
  • Impact of difference in rents at the company's Science Center at Oyster Point between the terminated Elan Corporation lease and the new Life Technologies lease (approximately $0.01 per diluted share).

The company's 2013 estimates also include previously announced acquisitions and developments, including the pending merger with Wexford Science & Technology. The company continues to target new investment opportunities, including acquisitions and new development projects; however, the company's 2013 estimates do not reflect the impact of any future new investments as the impact of such investments may vary significantly based on the nature of these investments, timing and other factors.  

The foregoing estimates are forward-looking and reflect management's view of current and future market conditions, including certain assumptions with respect to leasing activity, rental rates, occupancy levels, interest rates, financings, acquisitions, development and redevelopment and the amount and timing of acquisitions, development and redevelopment activities.  The company's actual results may differ materially from these estimates.

(1) The three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 include 10,259,496 and 10,127,232 shares of common stock, respectively, potentially issuable pursuant to the exchange feature of the exchangeable senior notes due 2030 based on the "if converted" method. The three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 include 1,398,203 and 1,483,706 shares of unvested restricted stock, respectively, which are considered anti-dilutive for purposes of calculating diluted earnings per share.


 

We present funds from operations, or FFO, FFO excluding acquisition-related expenses, or CFFO, and adjusted funds from operations, or AFFO, available to common shares and OP units because we consider them to be important supplemental measures of our operating performance and believe they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO, CFFO and AFFO when reporting their results.
 

FFO, CFFO and AFFO are intended to exclude GAAP historical cost depreciation and amortization of real estate and related assets, which assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes ratably over time. Historically, however, real estate values have risen or fallen with market conditions. Because FFO, CFFO and AFFO exclude depreciation and amortization unique to real estate, gains and losses from property dispositions and extraordinary items, they provide performance measures that, when compared year over year, reflect the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, development activities and interest costs, providing perspective not immediately apparent from net income. We compute FFO in accordance with standards established by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT. As defined by NAREIT, FFO represents net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of depreciable property, impairment charges on depreciable real estate, real estate related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of loan origination costs) and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.
 

We calculate CFFO by adding acquisition-related expenses to FFO. We calculate AFFO by adding to CFFO: (a) non-cash revenues and expenses, (b) recurring capital expenditures and second generation tenant improvements and (c) leasing commissions.
 

Our computations may differ from the methodologies for calculating FFO, CFFO and AFFO utilized by other equity REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs. Further, FFO, CFFO and AFFO do not represent amounts available for management's discretionary use because of needed capital replacement or expansion, debt service obligations, or other commitments and uncertainties. FFO, CFFO and AFFO should not be considered alternatives to net income/(loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) as indicators of our financial performance or to cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with GAAP) as indicators of our liquidity, nor are they indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends or make distributions. FFO, CFFO and AFFO should be considered only as supplements to net income computed in accordance with GAAP as measures of our operations.
