NEW YORK, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- iStar Financial Inc. (NYSE: STAR) today reported results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.

Fourth Quarter 2013 Results

Adjusted income (loss) represents net income (loss) computed in accordance with GAAP, prior to the effects of certain non-cash items, including depreciation, loan loss provisions, impairments, loss on transfer of interest to unconsolidated subsidiary, stock-based compensation and gain/loss on early extinguishment of debt. Please see the financial tables that follow the text of this press release for the Company's calculations of adjusted income (loss) as well as reconciliations to GAAP net income (loss).

Net income (loss) allocable to common shareholders for the fourth quarter was $(57.9) million, or $(0.68) per diluted common share, compared to $(87.4) million, or $(1.04) per diluted common share for the fourth quarter 2012.

Fiscal Year 2013 Results

"Over the past year, we have made meaningful progress across all of our business segments which has enhanced shareholder value," said Jay Sugarman, iStar's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We began originating new deals in our real estate finance and net lease segments, significantly reduced the balance of NPLs, continued harvesting condominium gains within our operating properties and advanced a number of our land projects by obtaining entitlements, furthering development, and pursuing strategic partnerships. We are well positioned to build on this positive momentum in 2014."

iStar reported adjusted income (loss) allocable to common shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2013 of $(21.7) million, or $(0.26) per diluted common share, compared to $(53.8) million, or $(0.64) per diluted common share for the year ended December 31, 2012.

Net income (loss) allocable to common shareholders for the year was $(155.8) million, or $(1.83) per diluted common share, compared to $(273.0) million, or $(3.26) per diluted common share for the prior year.

Capital Markets

During the fourth quarter, the Company issued at par $200 million of 1.50% convertible senior notes due November 2016, which are convertible into shares of iStar common stock at an initial conversion price of $17.29. The Company used net proceeds from the offering, together with cash on hand, to redeem the remaining $201 million of its 5.70% senior unsecured notes due March 2014 and to pay a $2.0 million prepayment fee. Concurrent with the offering, iStar repurchased 1.7 million shares of its common stock with cash on hand at the prevailing market price of $12.35 per share. At December 31, 2013, the Company had $29.0 million remaining under its share repurchase program.

"Throughout 2013, we demonstrated robust access to the capital markets as we raised secured, unsecured and convertible debt as well as preferred equity, while also expanding our outreach to both equity and fixed income investors," stated David DiStaso, iStar's Chief Financial Officer.

In addition, the Company repaid $96.7 million on its 2013 Secured Credit Facility during the quarter, reducing the remaining balance to $1.38 billion at the end of the quarter. The Company also repaid $8.4 million on its 2012 Secured Credit Facility, bringing the remaining balance to $431.5 million at December 31, 2013.

The Company's weighted average effective cost of debt for the fourth quarter was 5.7%, a decrease from 6.5% for the fourth quarter of 2012. The Company's leverage was 2.0x at December 31, 2013, down from 2.5x at the end of 2012, and at the low end of the Company's targeted range of 2.0x – 2.5x. Please see the financial tables that follow the text of this press release for a calculation of the Company's leverage.

Investment Activity

During the fourth quarter, iStar funded a total of $218.2 million of investments, which included $158.6 million of new investments originated during the quarter and $59.6 million under prior commitments and through capital expenditures.

"While iStar has continued to evolve over the past few years, the foundation of our investment philosophy built on over 20 years of experience has remained steadfast. We utilize the breadth of our platform to uncover opportunities presenting attractive risk-adjusted returns and look to develop relationships with entrepreneurial customers who place a high value on iStar's scale, scope, flexibility and integrity," said Sugarman. "Our recent investment activity demonstrates the strength of our platform."

In January 2014, iStar closed on its 50% interest in an $815 million debt financing commitment for  the development of a mixed-use project in the heart of Times Square, New York City. The project will include the ground-up construction of a 40-story EDITION hotel, retail space and signage. iStar initially funded $173 million at closing and expects to fund additional draw requests as the project progresses.

In addition, early in 2014 iStar partnered with a sovereign wealth fund to form a venture in which the partners plan to contribute up to an aggregate $500 million of equity to acquire and develop up to $1.25 billion of net lease assets over time. iStar will own approximately 52% of the venture and will be responsible for sourcing new opportunities and managing the venture and its assets in exchange for a promote and management fee. The venture's first investment is a 410,000 square foot office and data campus outside of Washington D.C. that is net leased to AT&T through 2025. It was  acquired by iStar for $94 million during the fourth quarter and was subsequently contributed to the venture.

iStar generated $164.4 million of proceeds from its portfolio during the fourth quarter, comprised of $77.9 million from repayments and sales of loans in its real estate finance portfolio, $49.4 million from sales of operating properties and $37.1 million of proceeds across other segments.

After giving effect to the investment and venture contribution made by the Company after the end of the quarter, iStar had approximately $400 million  of cash, which will be used primarily to fund future investment activity.

Portfolio Overview

At December 31, 2013, the Company's total portfolio had a gross carrying value of $5.19 billion, which represents the Company's carrying value, gross of $424.5 million of accumulated depreciation and $29.2 million of general loan loss reserves.

Real Estate Finance

At December 31, 2013, the Company's real estate finance portfolio totaled $1.40 billion, gross of general loan loss reserves.

The portfolio included $1.20 billion of performing loans with a weighted average last dollar loan-to-value ratio of 72% and a weighted average maturity of 2.8 years. The performing loans included $619.4 million of first mortgages / senior loans and $576.3 million of mezzanine / subordinated debt. The performing loans generated a weighted average effective yield for the quarter of 8.0%.

At December 31, 2013, the Company's non-performing loans (NPLs) had a carrying value of $203.6 million, a decrease from $235.3 million of NPLs at the end of the prior quarter and a 60% reduction from a balance of $503.1 million of NPLs at December 31, 2012.

For the fourth quarter, the Company recorded $0.1 million of loan loss provision, compared to a provision for loan losses of  $20.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. At December 31, 2013, loan loss reserves totaled $377.2 million or 23.5% of the total gross carrying value of loans.

Net Lease

At the end of the quarter, iStar's net lease portfolio had a gross carrying value of $1.71 billion, gross of $338.6 million of accumulated depreciation. The Company's net lease portfolio totaled 20 million square feet across 33 states.

Occupancy for the portfolio was 94.4% at the end of the quarter, with a weighted average remaining lease term of 11.6 years. The occupied assets generated an unleveraged weighted average effective yield of 8.1% on gross carrying value and the total net lease portfolio generated an unleveraged weighted average effective yield of 7.5% on gross carrying value for the quarter.

Operating Properties

At the end of the quarter, the Company's operating properties portfolio totaling $964.9 million, gross of $82.4 million of accumulated depreciation, was comprised of $741.6 million of commercial and $223.3 million of residential real estate properties. The Company has reduced its balance of operating properties from $1.18 billion at December 31, 2012 by actively marketing and selling condominium inventory and repositioning and selling select commercial real estate assets throughout the year. During the quarter, the Company funded $13.1 million of capital expenditures on its operating properties.

Commercial Operating

The Company's commercial operating properties represent a diverse pool of assets across a broad range of geographies and collateral types such as office, retail and hotel properties. These properties generated $29.6 million of revenue offset by $21.0 million of expenses during the quarter. iStar generally seeks to reposition or redevelop these assets with the objective of maximizing their values through the infusion of capital and/or intensive asset management efforts.

At the end of the quarter, the Company had $134.7 million of stabilized commercial operating properties that were 85% leased and generated an unleveraged weighted average effective yield of 8.3% on gross carrying value for the quarter.

The remaining commercial operating properties were 57% leased and generated an unleveraged weighted average effective yield of 2.7% on gross carrying value for the quarter. iStar is actively working to lease up and stabilize these properties. During the quarter, the Company executed  commercial operating property leases covering approximately 170,000 square feet.

Residential Operating

At the end of the quarter, the residential operating portfolio was comprised of 616 condominium units, generally located within luxury condominium projects in major U.S. cities. The Company's strategy is to continue selling its remaining condominium inventory and to maximize net proceeds. During the quarter, the Company sold 88 condominium units, resulting in $47.4 million of proceeds and recorded $14.1 million of income, offset by $4.4 million of expenses.  In addition, the Company recorded a $5.6 million impairment on one asset due to a change in local market conditions.

Land

At the end of the quarter, the Company's land portfolio totaling $965.2 million, gross of accumulated depreciation, was comprised of 11 master planned community projects, 10 urban infill land parcels and six waterfront land parcels located throughout the United States. During the quarter, the Company invested $15.6 million in its land portfolio through capital expenditures and sold one bulk land asset in Hawaii for $15.4 million, recognizing a nominal gain.

Master planned communities represent large-scale residential projects that the Company will entitle, plan and/or develop. These projects are currently entitled for more than 25,000  lots. The remainder of the Company's land includes infill and waterfront parcels located in and around major cities that the Company will develop, sell to or partner with commercial real estate developers. These projects are currently entitled for approximately 6,000 residential units, and select projects include commercial, retail and office uses.

At December 31, 2013, the Company had five land projects in production, 11 in development and 11 in the pre-development phase.

Summarized below are examples of the progress made at certain of the Company's land projects during the fourth quarter of 2013:

  • Received approval to develop a premiere, 5,000-seat amphitheater and entertainment venue on Coney Island in conjunction with the City of New York on a portion of iStar's Coney West development site. 
  • Entered into a venture with KB Home to jointly develop residential lots in the first phase of Spring Mountain Ranch, iStar's 1,400-lot master planned community in Riverside, CA. iStar believes that KB Home's strong presence in the local market will enhance sales velocity at the development. The Company recognized a loss of $7.4 million as a result of the contribution of the initial phase of land to the venture. Later phases of the project should benefit from the infrastructure improvements paid for by the venture and the momentum created by this initial partnership.
  • Signed an agreement to sell developed lots to K. Hovnanian® for the construction of luxury townhomes in Asbury Park, NJ. Earlier in 2013, iStar completed construction and sold all units at the VIVE townhome community, the first new residential development in the waterfront area since 2007.
  • Began construction of the first tower of Marina Palms, a luxury waterfront condominium and yacht club in Miami, FL in which iStar has a 47.5% venture interest.  The project comprises 468 residences across two towers and a 110-slip marina, with all units released for sale in the first tower now under contract.
  • Began development of One Palm, a venture to which iStar contributed land in Sarasota, FL. The venture will seek to develop a new 141-room class A multi-family building as well as a 139-room hotel, which will operate as an Aloft by Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

(1) Adjusted Income (loss) allocable to common shareholders should be examined in conjunction with net income (loss) as shown in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. This non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of the Company's performance, or to cash flows from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of the Company's liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund the Company's cash needs or available for distribution to shareholders. It should be noted that the Company's manner of calculating this non-GAAP financial measure may differ from the calculations of similarly-titled measures by other companies. Management believes that it is useful to consider Adjusted Income because the adjustments are non-cash items that do not necessarily reflect an actual change in the long-term economic value or performance of our assets. Management considers this non-GAAP financial measure as supplemental information to net income in analyzing the performance of our underlying business. Depreciation and amortization and impairment of assets exclude adjustments from discontinued operations of $6 and $844, respectively, for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and $187 and $1,147, respectively, for the three months ended December 31, 2012. Depreciation and amortization and impairment of assets exclude adjustments from discontinued operations of $264 and $1,764, respectively, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 and $2,016 and $22,576, respectively, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012. Depreciation and amortization includes our proportionate share of depreciation and amortization expense relating to equity method investments and excludes the portion of depreciation and amortization expense allocable to non-controlling interests.
