EdR Announces Third Quarter 2014 Results

- Core FFO per Share Up 38% in the Quarter and 21% YTD -

- Company Reaffirms 2014 Guidance -

MEMPHIS, Tenn.--()--EdR (NYSE:EDR), one of the nation’s largest developers, owners and managers of collegiate housing, today announced results for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

“We have successfully executed on growth opportunities and continue to work a robust pipeline for deliveries in 2016 and beyond.”

Company Highlights

  • Core funds from operations (“Core FFO”) was $14.8 million, or $0.11 per share/unit for the third quarter, compared to $8.7 million, or $0.08 per share/unit in the prior year, an increase of 38% on a per share basis;
  • Same-community net operating income ("NOI") improved 4.4% for the quarter on a 3.5% growth in revenue and a 2.9% increase in operating expenses;
  • Opened the 2014/2015 lease term with same-community revenue growth of 4.0%, comprised of a net rental rate increase of 2.0% and a 200 basis point growth in opening occupancy to 96.3%;
  • Delivered nine new owned communities in August, on-time and on-budget, for an aggregate cost of $303.7 million;
  • Entered into a sales agreement for the disposition of The Pointe at South Florida, a 15-year old, 1,002-bed community non-pedestrian to the University of South Florida campus. The transaction closed in early October for $31.0 million;
  • Completed the previously announced acquisition of The District on Apache, a 100% leased, 900-bed community adjacent to Arizona State University for $89.8 million;
  • As previously disclosed, recognized a $3.0 million guarantee fee upon the July 2014 refinancing of the participating development at Johns Hopkins and full repayment of the Company's $18.0 million mezzanine investment; and
  • Appointed Bill Brewer as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, and promoted Christine Richards to Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.

“I couldn't be more proud of what we achieved this year or more excited for what is yet to come,” stated Randy Churchey, EdR’s president and chief executive officer. “In June, strong demand for our follow-on equity offering signaled investor approval of our disciplined growth strategy and operating results. In August, our development and construction teams delivered a record 6,000 beds on time and on budget. And this fall our operations team produced yet another year of industry leading leasing results, with same-community revenue growth of 4.0%. Our teams continue to effectively execute on our plans, providing exciting growth for the Company and our investors."

Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Common Stockholders

Net income attributable to common stockholders for the quarter was $21.4 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $4.5 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the prior year. The $25.9 million increase in net income attributable to common stockholders relates primarily to the following items recognized in the quarter ended September 30, 2014:

  • $8.4 million in gains on sale of collegiate housing communities,
  • $8.1 million gain on the settlement of an insurance claim related to the 2012 fire at our community in St. Louis,
  • $6.5 million of previously deferred interest income relating our third-party development at Johns Hopkins University,
  • $1.5 million of previously deferred third-party development fees, net of costs and taxes, related to our participating development at Johns Hopkins, and
  • $3.0 million loan guarantee fee relating to our third-party development at Johns Hopkins University.

Core Funds From Operations

Core FFO for the quarter was $14.8 million, as compared to $8.7 million in the prior year, an increase of 70%. Core FFO per share/unit for the quarter increased 38% to $0.11. The $6.1 million improvement in Core FFO mainly reflects a $5.0 million growth in community net operating income and the $3.0 million loan guarantee fee relating to our participating development at Johns Hopkins University offset by a $1.7 million increase in third-party and corporate general and administrative costs and ground lease expense.

A reconciliation of funds from operations (“FFO”) and Core FFO to net income is included with the financial tables accompanying this release.

Same-Community Results

Net operating income was $12.4 million for the quarter, an increase of 4.4%, or $0.5 million, from the prior year. Revenue for the quarter was up 3.5% as compared to the prior year with a 2.1% growth in rental rates, a 0.6% improvement in occupancy and a 0.8% increase in other income. Operating expenses for the quarter increased $0.5 million, or 2.9%, mainly due to a $0.4 million, or 14%, increase in real estate taxes.

2014/2015 Lease Term Opening

The same-community leasing portfolio opened the 2014/2015 lease term with a 4.0% increase in rental revenue. Opening occupancy was up 200 basis points to 96.3% and net rental rates opened the term 2.0% above the prior year. New-communities opened the 2014/2015 lease term with an average occupancy of 96.1%.

As previously disclosed, the same-community mix for leasing purposes is different than that for supplemental financial reporting purposes and includes assets for which the Company has managed the leasing process for at least two leasing cycles regardless of when the community was acquired or opened. For example, a community that was developed and delivered in 2013 is included in the same-community portfolio for leasing purposes, as the Company managed the leasing process for the 2013/2014 and the current 2014/2015 lease terms. However, since the community was not in operation for all twelve months of 2013 and 2014 it is not in the same-community portfolio for supplemental financial reporting purposes in 2014.

As a result of this mix difference and absent other quarterly leasing fluctuations, the same-community leasing results above, that were achieved for the 2014/2015 lease term, equate to supplemental financial reporting same-community revenue growth of just under 3% for the fourth quarter of 2014 and approximately 4% in the first and second quarters of 2015.

University of Kentucky ("UK") Campus Housing Revitalization Plan

All of the 2014 deliveries with a total of 2,381 beds, were opened on time and 100% leased for the 2014/2015 academic year. At the same time construction is underway and proceeding as planned on the 2015 deliveries, which include 1,610 beds for a total cost of $101.2 million, and the 2016 deliveries, which include 1,141 beds for a total cost of $83.9 million. While planning has begun for the 2017 deliveries under this long-term relationship with UK, to date a total of 5,733 beds in live learn communities have been approved for a total cost approaching $350 million.

Investment Activity

The Company completed its busiest development cycle, successfully delivering on-time and on-budget a total of 11 communities, with over 6,000 beds. This includes the pre-sale at Florida International University and two third-party development projects. Construction is on schedule for the 2015 and 2016 development deliveries at the universities of Kentucky, Louisville, Connecticut and Georgia.

During the quarter, the Company completed the previously announced acquisition of The District on Apache, a 900-bed community adjacent to Arizona State University, for approximately $89.8 million. The community opened in 2013 and is 100% leased for the 2014/2015 lease term.

"The quarter was marked by a Company record $303.7 million of development deliveries, an excellent pedestrian to campus acquisition at Arizona State University and the sale of three non-pedestrian to campus assets," stated Tom Trubiana, EdR's executive vice president and chief investment officer. "We have successfully executed on growth opportunities and continue to work a robust pipeline for deliveries in 2016 and beyond."

As previously disclosed, during the third quarter the Company received and recognized a $3.0 million fee for guaranteeing the construction loan related to the third-party participating development at Johns Hopkins University. The owner of the development successfully closed on permanent financing for the community in July 2014, repaying in-full their construction loan as well as the $18.0 million mezzanine investment made by EdR. As a result of the repayment of the mezzanine investment, the Company also recognized $6.5 million of interest income and $1.5 million of development fees, net of costs and taxes, that had previously been received from the owner but deferred for GAAP purposes. As the previously deferred amounts were added to Core FFO in prior years when the fees would have been earned, they have been removed from Core FFO for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014.

Dispositions

The Company recognized a gain of approximately $8.4 million, during the quarter, related to the previously announced sales of two older, non-pedestrian to campus communities at the University of South Carolina and Auburn University. The $29.9 million of net proceeds from these dispositions was used to pay-off approximately $16.7 million of mortgage debt, with an average interest rate of 4.9%, and to pay down the Company's unsecured revolving credit facility.

During the quarter the Company entered into an agreement to sell The Pointe at South Florida, a 1,002-bed community at the University of South Florida, for $31.0 million. The 15-year old community was located over half a mile from campus in a market that has seen significant supply added in recent years and that is expecting the university to add significant supply in the near future. The community was classified as held for sale on our balance sheet at September 30, 2014 and the sale was completed in October 2014. The Company will recognize a gain of approximately $2.6 million from this disposition in the 4th quarter of 2014.

The Company is in the process of marketing two additional communities for sale. Based on current estimates, the Company recorded a non-cash impairment charge of approximately $1.0 million in the third quarter related to one of the marketed communities. The Company anticipates that it would record a gain on the sale of the other community if and when the sale closes; however, there is no guarantee that either of these communities will ultimately be sold.

Capital Structure

At September 30, 2014, the Company had cash and cash equivalents totaling $18.4 million and had $290 million of availability on its unsecured revolving credit facility. The Company's debt to gross assets was 36%, net debt to EBITDA - adjusted 5.2x, and interest coverage ratio 4.9x. The Company has the financial capacity through operating cash flow, proceeds from recently completed dispositions and availability under its revolving credit facility to fund all of its announced developments.

During the third quarter, the Company sold 2.9 million shares of common stock at an average price of $10.86, raising net proceeds of $31.5 million. The proceeds were used to pay down the revolving credit facility and fund our development pipeline. As these sales exhausted the Company's existing "at-the-market" equity program (ATM), our Board of Directors approved a new ATM program and the Company has entered into equity distribution agreements for the future sale of shares of up to $150 million in value.

Earnings Guidance and Outlook

Based on management’s current estimates of market conditions and future operating results and including the impact of the 2014/2015 leasing results and recent acquisitions and dispositions, the Company reaffirms its Core FFO guidance of $0.61 to $0.64 per share/unit, which represents an 11% to 16% growth rate over 2013.

Consistent with Company policy, guidance does not include the impact of any unannounced third-party development or management contracts, acquisitions including pre-sale agreements or purchase options, dispositions, ONE Plansm developments or capital transactions.

Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995

Statements about the Company’s business that are not historical facts are “forward-looking statements,” which relate to expectations, beliefs, projections, future plans and strategies, anticipated events or trends and similar expressions. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts” or “potential” or the negative of these words and phrases or similar words or phrases which are predictions of or indicate future events or trends and which do not relate solely to historical matters. Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations. You should not rely on forward-looking statements because the matters that they describe are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause the Company’s business, financial condition, liquidity, results of operations, Core FFO, FFO and prospects to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such statements. Such risks are set forth under the captions “Risk Factors,” “Forward-Looking Statements” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” (or similar captions) in EdR's most recent annual report on Form 10-K, and as described in EdR's other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made, and, except as otherwise may be required by law, the Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any guidance or other forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments, or otherwise, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Funds from Operations (FFO)

As defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, FFO represents net income (loss) (computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP")), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property and impairment write-downs of depreciable real estate plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures will be calculated to reflect FFO on the same basis. The Company presents FFO available to all stockholders and unitholders because management considers it to be an important supplemental measure of the Company’s operating performance, believes it assists in the comparison of the Company’s operating performance between periods to that of different REITs and believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting their operating results. As such, the Company also excludes the impact of noncontrolling interests, only as they relate to operating partnership units, in the calculation. FFO is intended to exclude GAAP historical cost depreciation and amortization of real estate and related assets, which assumes that the value of real estate diminishes ratably over time. Historically, however, real estate values have risen or fallen with market conditions. Because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization unique to real estate, gains and losses from property dispositions and extraordinary items, it provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, reflects 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.

The Company also uses core funds from operations, or Core FFO, as an operating measure. Core FFO is defined as FFO adjusted to include the economic impact of revenue on participating projects for which recognition is deferred for GAAP purposes. The adjustment for this revenue is calculated on the same percentage of completion method used to recognize revenue on third-party development projects. Core FFO also includes adjustments to exclude the impact of straight-line adjustment for ground leases, gains/losses on extinguishment of debt, transaction costs related to acquisitions and reorganization or severance costs. The Company believes that these adjustments are appropriate in determining Core FFO as they are not indicative of the operating performance of the Company’s assets. In addition the Company believes that Core FFO is a useful supplemental measure for the investing community to use in comparing the Company to other REITs as most REITs provide some form of adjusted or modified FFO.

Net Operating Income (NOI)

The Company considers NOI to be a useful measure of its collegiate housing operating performance. The Company defines NOI as rental and other community-level revenues earned from our collegiate housing communities less community-level operating expenses, excluding management fees, depreciation, amortization, ground lease expense and impairment charges and including regional and other corporate costs of supporting the communities. Other REITs may use different methodologies for calculating NOI, and accordingly, the Company's NOI may not be comparable to other REITs. The Company believes that this measure provides an operating perspective not immediately apparent from GAAP operating income or net income. The Company uses NOI to evaluate performance on a community-by-community basis because it allows management to evaluate the impact that factors such as lease structure, lease rates and tenant base, which vary by property, have on the Company’s operating results. However, NOI should only be used as an alternative measure of the Company’s financial performance.

Adjusted Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (Adjusted EBITDA)

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income or loss excluding: (1) straight line adjustment for ground leases; (2) acquisition costs; (3) depreciation and amortization; (4) loss on impairment of collegiate housing assets; (5) gain on sale of collegiate housing assets; (6) interest expense; (7) other non-operating expense (income); (8) income tax expense (benefit); and (9) non-controlling interest. Management considers Adjusted EBITDA useful to an investor in evaluating and facilitating comparisons of the Company's operating performance between periods and between REITs by removing the impact of the Company's capital structure (primarily interest expense) and asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from our operating results. Adjusted EBITDA should only be used as an alternative measure of the Company's financial performance.

Net debt to EBITDA - adjusted is calculated to normalize the impact of non-producing construction debt. In the calculation, net debt is total debt less cash and excludes non-producing debt related to assets under development at time of calculation. EBITDA is Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA, which includes proforma adjustments to reflect all acquisitions and development assets that are opened as if such had occurred at the beginning of the 12 month period being presented.

Debt to Gross Assets

Debt to gross assets is defined as total debt, excluding the unamortized debt premium, divided by gross assets, or total assets excluding accumulated depreciation on real estate assets. We consider debt to gross assets useful to an investor in evaluating our leverage and in assessing our capital structure, because it excludes noncash items such as accumulated depreciation and provides a more accurate depiction of our capital structure. Debt to gross assets should only be used as an alternative measure of the Company's financial performance.

The gain on sale of collegiate housing assets in 2013 is included in discontinued operations and the gain recognized in 2014 is included as gain on sale of collegiate housing properties on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income.

(2)

Represents gain on insurance settlement at 3949 Lindell. The Community was damaged by fire in July 2012. All claims were settled during the three months ended September 30, 2014, at which time the gain was recognized.

(3)

This represents the straight-line rent expense adjustment required by GAAP related to ground leases. As the ground lease terms range from 40 to 99 years, the adjustment to straight-line these agreements becomes material to our operating results, distorting the economic results of the communities.

(4)

On July 1, 2014, the owner of the participating development at Johns Hopkins successfully closed on permanent financing for the community and repaid in-full their construction loan as well as the $18.0 million mezzanine investment made by EdR. As a result of the repayment of the mezzanine investment, the Company recognized $6.5 million of interest income and $1.5 million of development fees, net of costs and taxes, in the quarter that had previously been received from the owner but deferred for GAAP purposes. Since the previously deferred amounts were added to Core FFO in prior periods when the fees would have been earned, they have been removed from Core FFO for the quarter. The adjustment for interest income for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, is $0.9 million less, which reflects the interest income earned in the first six months of 2014 that should flow through to Core FFO.

(5)

FFO and Core FFO per weighted average share/unit were computed using the weighted average of all shares and operating partnership units outstanding, regardless of their dilutive impact.
