Highlights

  • As of today, the company's stabilized operating portfolio is 96% leased, the non-stabilized portfolio is 59% leased and in the development portfolio, ACC6 Phase II is 67% pre-leased.
  • Second quarter 2012 activity not previously reported:
    • Signed one lease of 1.14 MW and 5,295 raised square feet
    • Commenced two leases totaling 9.81 MW and 49,295 raised square feet.

    • Signed two leases and a pre-lease totaling 18.42 MW and 92,917 raised square feet.
    • Commenced development of ACC6 Phase II which the Company expects to complete by the end of 2012.

Hossein Fateh, President and Chief Executive Officer, said "We are pleased with our performance to date this year.  We remain focused on the lease-up of our available inventory and continue to see good demand for our wholesale locations.

Second Quarter 2012 Results

For the quarter ended June 30, 2012, the company reported earnings of $0.11 per share compared to $0.20 per share for the second quarter of 2011.  The decrease of $0.09 in earnings per share is primarily due to lower capitalized interest and higher preferred dividends.  Revenues increased 17%, or $11.9 million, to $82.7 million for the second quarter of 2012 over the second quarter of 2011.  The increase in revenues is primarily due to new leases commencing at our non-stabilized properties partially offset by one lease that expired on April 30, 2012.

Funds from Operations ("FFO") for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 was $0.37 per share compared to $0.42 per share for the second quarter of 2011.  The decrease of $0.05 per share is primarily due to:

  • Higher operating income, excluding depreciation, of $0.06 per share primarily due to new leases commencing of $0.10 per share, partially offset by unreimbursed property operating expenses, real estate taxes and insurance related to the properties that are not fully leased of $0.04 per share.
  • Higher fixed charges of $0.11 per share representing lower capitalized interest expense of $0.09 per share and additional preferred dividends of $0.02 per share.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2012 Results

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, the company reported earnings of $0.19 per share compared to $0.37 per share for the year ago period.  The decrease of $0.18 in earnings per share is primarily due to lower capitalized interest and higher preferred dividends.  Revenues increased 16%, or $21.8 million, to $161.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 over the year ago period.  The increase in revenues is primarily due to new leases commencing at our non-stabilized properties.

FFO for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $0.72 per share compared to $0.80 per share for the year ago period.  The decrease of $0.08 per share is primarily due to:

  • Higher operating income, excluding depreciation, of $0.11 per share primarily due to new leases commencing of $0.17 per share, partially offset by unreimbursed property operating expenses, real estate taxes and insurance of $0.06 per share.
  • Higher fixed charges of $0.19 per share representing lower capitalized interest expense of $0.15 per share and additional preferred dividends of $0.04 per share.

Portfolio Update

  • Signed three leases and a pre-lease totaling 19.56 MW and 98,212 raised square feet with an average lease term of 13.6 years.
    • Two leases were at ACC6 Phase I totaling 9.75 MW and 48,984 raised square feet.  One lease for 8.67 MW commenced in the second quarter of 2012 and the other 1.08 MW lease will commence in the third quarter of 2012.
    • One lease was at SC1 totaling 1.14 MW and 5,295 raised square feet.  This lease commenced in the second quarter of 2012.

2012 Guidance

The company is increasing its 2012 FFO guidance range to $1.47 to $1.54 per share from $1.44 to $1.54 per share.  The 2012 updated lower end of the guidance range assumes no additional leases commencing this year.

Funds from operations, or FFO, is used by industry analysts and investors as a supplemental operating performance measure for REITs. The Company calculates FFO in accordance with the definition that was adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT. FFO, as defined by NAREIT, represents net income determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding extraordinary items as defined under GAAP, impairment charges on depreciable real estate assets and gains or losses from sales of previously depreciated operating real estate assets, plus specified non-cash items, such as real estate asset depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company also presents FFO attributable to common shares and OP units, which is FFO excluding preferred stock dividends. FFO attributable to common shares and OP units per share is calculated on a basis consistent with net income attributable to common shares and OP units and reflects adjustments to net income for preferred stock dividends.

 

The Company uses FFO as a supplemental performance measure because, in excluding real estate related depreciation and amortization and gains and losses from property dispositions, it provides a performance measure that, when compared period over period, captures trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating expenses. The Company also believes that, as a widely recognized measure of the performance of equity REITs, FFO may be used by investors as a basis to compare the Company's operating performance with that of other REITs. However, because FFO excludes real estate related depreciation and amortization and captures neither the changes in the value of the Company's properties that result from use or market conditions nor the level of capital expenditures and leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of the Company's properties, all of which have real economic effects and could materially impact the Company's results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of the Company's performance is limited.

 

While FFO is a relevant and widely used measure of operating performance of equity REITs, other equity REITs may use different methodologies for calculating FFO and, accordingly, FFO as disclosed by such other REITs may not be comparable to the Company's FFO. Therefore, the Company believes that in order to facilitate a clear understanding of its historical operating results, FFO should be examined in conjunction with net income as presented in the consolidated statements of operations. FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income or to cash flow from operating activities (each as computed in accordance with GAAP) or as an indicator of the Company's liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to meet the Company's cash needs, including its ability to pay dividends or make distributions.

 

The Company also presents FFO with supplemental adjustments to arrive at Adjusted FFO ("AFFO"). AFFO is FFO attributable to common shares and OP units excluding straight-line revenue, non-cash stock based compensation, gain or loss on derivative instruments, acquisition of service agreements, below market lease amortization net of above market lease amortization and early extinguishment of debt costs.  AFFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and therefore should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indicator of the Company's operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow provided by operations as a measure of liquidity and is not necessarily indicative of funds available to fund the Company's cash needs including the Company's ability to pay dividends. In addition, AFFO may not be comparable to similarly titled measurements employed by other companies. The Company's management uses AFFO in management reports to provide a measure of REIT operating performance that can be compared to other companies using AFFO.
