"2015 was a year of value-creation through strong execution for Washington REIT as we overcame challenging market conditions to achieve significant leasing and asset recycling goals and deliver the value we outlined to our shareholders throughout the year," said Paul T. McDermott, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We successfully leased-up our three needle-movers, Silverline Center, The Maxwell and 1775 Eye Street and executed our planned legacy asset sales. Furthermore, we reinvested proceeds, through a 1031 exchange, into The Wellington, an asset that is expected to create ongoing value through an extensive unit renovation program as well as the on-site development of 400 additional multifamily units. Washington REIT is well-positioned to successfully execute the milestones delineated for 2016, with a commitment to improving our balance sheet while further improving the quality and performance of our portfolio as part of our overall effort to drive shareholder value."

Financial Results

Core Funds from Operations(1), was $1.71 per diluted share for the year and $0.46 per diluted share for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, as compared to $1.63 per diluted share and $0.43 per diluted share, respectively, for the corresponding periods in 2014. 

FFO as defined by NAREIT for the year ended December 31, 2015 was $108.5 million, or $1.58 per diluted share, compared to $101.1 million, or $1.51 per diluted share, in 2014. FFO for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 was $31.5 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, compared to $26.8 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, in the same period one year ago. 

Net income attributable to the controlling interests for the year ended December 31, 2015 was $89.7 million, or $1.31 per diluted share, compared to $111.6 million, or $1.67 per diluted share, in 2014.

Net income attributable to the controlling interests for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 was $62.1 million, or $0.91 per diluted share, compared to $2.3 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, in the same period one year ago.

Operating Results

The Company's overall portfolio NOI(2) for the fourth quarter was $51.4 million, compared to $48.4 million in the same period one year ago and $50.1 million in the third quarter of 2015. Overall portfolio physical occupancy for the fourth quarter was 90.2%, compared to 90.5% in the same period one year ago.

Same-store(3) portfolio physical occupancy for the fourth quarter was 91.7%, compared to 92.7% in the same period one year ago. Same-store portfolio cash NOI for the fourth quarter increased by 3.7%, while NOI increased 2.0% compared to the same period one year ago. Same-store rental growth for the fourth quarter was 0.4%.

  • Office: 55% of Total NOI - Office properties' same-store cash NOI for the fourth quarter increased by 9.2%, and NOI increased by 6.4% compared to the same period one year ago due to annual rent increases at several properties, higher lease terminations fees, utility and snow removal cost savings and higher than expected levels of expense recoveries. Rental rate growth for the fourth quarter was flat. Same-store physical occupancy decreased 40 basis points to 90.5%.
  • Retail: 24% of Total NOI - Retail properties' same-store cash NOI for the fourth quarter decreased by 2.2% and NOI decreased by 2.5% compared to the same period one year ago, primarily driven by another full quarter impact of known tenant move outs that have been re-leased with increased rents and that are expected to commence in the second half of 2016. Rental rates increased 3.5% and lease termination fees were higher. Same-store physical occupancy decreased 350 basis points to 91.5% compared to the same period one year ago and 390 basis points compared to the third quarter of 2015, which included short-term seasonal rentals of space. Retail was 95% leased as of December 31, 2015.
  • Multifamily: 21% of Total NOI - Multifamily properties' same-store cash NOI for the fourth quarter decreased by 4.7% and NOI decreased by 4.8% compared to the same period one year ago due to lower effective rents and increased marketing expenses. Rental rates decreased 1.1% while same-store physical occupancy increased 70 basis points to 94.3% compared to the same period one year ago and 110 basis points compared to the third quarter of 2015.

Disposition Activity

On October 21, 2015, Washington REIT sold Munson Hill Towers, a 258,000 square foot Class B high-rise of 279 units located in Falls Church, Virginia, for $57.1 million, or approximately $204,480 per unit.

On December 14, 2015, Washington REIT sold Montgomery Village Center, a 197,000 square foot , Class B community shopping center in Montgomery Village, Maryland, for $27.8 million.

Both sales were structured as part of a reverse-1031 exchange in connection with the acquisition of The Wellington, which the Company acquired in the third quarter of 2015.

Leasing Activity

New leases signed during the year totaled approximately 553,000 square feet and renewal leases totaled approximately 732,000 square feet. The majority of this leasing occurred within the office portfolio which signed 433,000 square feet of new leases and 440,000 square feet of renewal leases.

During the fourth quarter, Washington REIT signed commercial leases totaling approximately 295,000 square feet, including approximately 220,000 square feet of new leases and approximately 75,000 square feet of renewal leases.

Earnings Guidance

2016 Core FFO per fully diluted share is projected to be $1.70 - $1.77. The following assumptions are incorporated into this guidance:

  • Same-store NOI growth is projected to be flat
  • Same-store office NOI growth is also projected to be flat largely due to the impact of re-tenanting expected tenant move-outs
  • Same-store multifamily NOI growth is projected to range from 1% to 2%
  • Same-store retail NOI growth is projected to range from (0.5)% to flat as the long-term leases that the Company signed this year commence in the second half of 2016
  • Silverline Center is expected to contribute NOI of $0.11 per share
  • The Maxwell development is expected to contribute NOI of $0.04 per share
  • The Company has placed a portfolio of suburban assets on the market and currently plans to use approximately 50% of the proceeds to pay down secured debt and further strengthen the balance sheet and reinvest the balance to improve the portfolio through a reverse 1031 exchange
  • General and administrative expense is projected to be approximately $20 million excluding any severance expense
  • Interest expense is projected to be approximately $56 to $57 million

Non same-store properties in 2016 are The Wellington and The Maxwell in multifamily and the Silverline Center and The Army Navy Club Building in office.

Washington REIT's 2016 guidance is also based on a number of other factors, many of which are outside its control and all of which are subject to change. Washington REIT may change its guidance during the year as actual and anticipated results vary from these assumptions.

Certain statements in our earnings release and on our conference call are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements include statements in this earnings release preceded by, followed by or that include the words "believe," "expect," "intend," "anticipate," "potential," "project," "will" and other similar expressions. Such statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause actual results to differ materially. Such risks, uncertainties and other factors include, but are not limited to, the potential for federal government budget reductions, changes in general and local economic and real estate market conditions, the timing and pricing of lease transactions, the availability and cost of capital, fluctuations in interest rates, tenants' financial conditions, levels of competition, the effect of government regulation, the impact of newly adopted accounting principles, and other risks and uncertainties detailed from time to time in our filings with the SEC, including our 2014 Form 10-K and subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. We assume no obligation to update or supplement forward-looking statements that become untrue because of subsequent events.

(1) Funds From Operations ("FFO") - The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. ("NAREIT") defines FFO (April, 2002 White Paper) as net income (computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP")) excluding gains (or losses) associated with sales of property, impairment of depreciable real estate and real estate depreciation and amortization.  FFO is a non-GAAP measure and does not replace net income as a measure of performance or net cash provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity.  We consider FFO to be a standard supplemental measure for equity real estate investment trusts ("REITs") because it facilitates an understanding of the operating performance of our properties without giving effect to real estate depreciation and amortization, which historically assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time.  Since real estate values have instead historically risen or fallen with market conditions, we believe that FFO more accurately provides investors an indication of our ability to incur and service debt, make capital expenditures and fund other needs.

 

Core Funds From Operations ("Core FFO") is calculated by adjusting FFO for the following items (which we believe are not indicative of the performance of Washington REIT's operating portfolio and affect the comparative measurement of Washington REIT's operating performance over time): (1) gains or losses on extinguishment of debt, (2) expenses related to acquisition and structuring activities, (3) executive transition costs and severance expense related to corporate reorganization and related to executive retirements or resignations, (4) property impairments not already excluded from FFO, as appropriate, and (5) relocation expense. These items can vary greatly from period to period, depending upon the volume of our acquisition activity and debt retirements, among other factors. We believe that by excluding these items, Core FFO serves as a useful, supplementary measure of Washington REIT's ability to incur and service debt and to distribute dividends to its shareholders. Core FFO is a non-GAAP and non-standardized measure and may be calculated differently by other REITs.

 

(2) Net Operating Income ("NOI"), defined as real estate rental revenue less real estate expenses, is a non-GAAP measure. NOI is calculated as net income, less non-real estate revenue and the results of discontinued operations (including the gain on sale, if any), plus interest expense, depreciation and amortization, general and administrative expenses, acquisition costs and real estate impairment. We also present NOI on a cash basis ("cash NOI") which is calculated as NOI less the impact of straight-lining of rent and amortization of market intangibles. We provide NOI as a supplement to net income calculated in accordance with GAAP. As such, it should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indication of our operating performance. It is the primary performance measure we use to assess the results of our operations at the property level.

 

(3) For purposes of evaluating comparative operating performance, we categorize our properties as "same-store" or "non-same-store". A same-store property is one that was owned for the entirety of the periods being evaluated and excludes properties under redevelopment or development and properties purchased or sold at any time during the periods being compared. A non-same-store property is one that was acquired, under redevelopment or development, or placed into service during either of the periods being evaluated. We define redevelopment properties as those for which we expect to spend significant development and construction costs on existing or acquired buildings pursuant to a formal plan which has a current impact on operating results, occupancy and the ability to lease space with the intended result of a higher economic return on the property. Properties under redevelopment or development are included within the non-same-store properties beginning in the period during which redevelopment or development activities commence. Redevelopment and development properties are included in the same-store pool upon completion of the redevelopment or development, and the earlier of achieving 90% occupancy or two years after completion.

 

(4) Funds Available for Distribution ("FAD") is a non-GAAP measure. It is calculated by subtracting from FFO (1) recurring expenditures, tenant improvements and leasing costs, that are capitalized and amortized and are necessary to maintain our properties and revenue stream (excluding items contemplated prior to acquisition or associated with development / redevelopment of a property) and (2) straight line rents, then adding (3) non-real estate depreciation and amortization, (4) non-cash fair value interest expense and (5) amortization of restricted share compensation, then adding or subtracting the (6) amortization of lease intangibles, (7) real estate impairment and (8) non-cash gain/loss on extinguishment of debt, as appropriate. FAD is included herein because we consider it to be a measure of a REIT's ability to incur and service debt and to distribute dividends to its shareholders. FAD is a non-GAAP and non-standardized measure, and may be calculated differently by other REITs.
