Management Commentary

“We delivered an outstanding quarter in every way, from strong financial performance to solid portfolio performance and record originations for the quarter,” said Christopher H. Volk, President and Chief Executive Officer of STORE Capital. “We originated $263 million of gross investments during the third quarter, bringing our highly diversified investment portfolio to $3.7 billion representing 1,246 property locations across 288 customers and 81 industries as of September 30, 2015. Based on our strong execution and momentum year to date, we are meaningfully raising and narrowing our AFFO per share guidance range for 2015 to $1.45 to $1.47 and increasing our projected 2015 net real estate acquisition volume to $1.1 billion. Our impressive results for 2015 are setting the stage for what we anticipate will be more growth to come in 2016, with an initial AFFO per share guidance range of $1.59 to $1.63.”

Financial Results

Total Revenues

Total revenues were $74.8 million for the third quarter of 2015, an increase of 46.9% from $50.9 million for the third quarter of 2014. The increase was driven primarily by the growth in the size of STORE Capital’s real estate investment portfolio, which grew from $2.5 billion in gross investment amount representing 850 property locations at September 30, 2014 to $3.7 billion in gross investment amount representing 1,246 property locations at September 30, 2015.

Total revenues for the first nine months of 2015 were $205.2 million, an increase of 51.6% from $135.3 million for the first nine months of 2014.

Net Income

Net income increased to $23.0 million, or $0.18 per basic and diluted share, for the third quarter of 2015 compared to $10.8 million in net income, or $0.13 per basic and diluted share, for the third quarter of 2014. Net income for the third quarter of 2015 includes a $0.7 million gain on the sale of three properties as compared to a $0.1 million gain on the sale of two properties during the same period in 2014. Weighted average shares used in the calculation of both basic and diluted per share amounts were 126.3 million shares and 82.9 million shares for the quarters ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was $59.7 million, or $0.50 per basic and diluted share compared to $30.7 million, or $0.42 per basic and diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. The Company reported a gain of $1.9 million on the sale of seven properties during the first nine months of 2015 versus a $2.2 million gain on the sale of eight properties during the same period in 2014. Weighted average shares used in the calculation of both basic and diluted per share amounts were 119.5 million shares and 72.2 million shares for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Adjusted Funds from Operations (AFFO)

AFFO increased 66.0% to $48.6 million, or $0.38 per basic and diluted share, for the third quarter of 2015, compared to AFFO of $29.3 million, or $0.35 per basic and diluted share, for the third quarter of 2014. The increase in AFFO between years was primarily driven by additional rental revenues and interest income generated by the growth in the Company’s real estate investment portfolio.

AFFO for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was $130.9 million, or $1.09 per basic and diluted share, compared to $76.1 million, or $1.05 per basic and diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

Dividend Information

As previously announced, STORE Capital declared a regular quarterly cash dividend per common share of $0.27 for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015, representing an 8% increase over the prior quarter. This dividend, totaling $34.3 million, was paid on October 15, 2015 to stockholders of record on September 30, 2015.

Real Estate Portfolio Highlights

Investment Activity

The Company originated $263.2 million of gross investments representing 75 property locations during the third quarter of 2015. These investments had an initial weighted average cap rate of 7.8%. Total investment activity for the first nine months of the year was $949.5 million representing 308 property locations and an initial weighted average cap rate of 8.1%. The Company defines “initial cap rate” for property acquisitions as the initial annual cash rent divided by the purchase price of the property.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company sold seven properties and recognized a total gain of $1.9 million. These seven properties represented approximately 1.0% of the investment portfolio at the beginning of 2015. The average sale cap rate for occupied properties sold was 7.9%.

Portfolio

At September 30, 2015, STORE Capital’s real estate portfolio totaled $3.7 billion representing 1,246 property locations, substantially all of which are profit centers for the Company’s customers. Approximately 95% of the portfolio represents commercial real estate properties subject to long-term leases, 5% represents mortgage loans and direct financing receivables primarily on commercial real estate buildings (located on land the Company owns and leases to its customers) and a nominal amount represents loans receivable secured by the tenants’ other assets. As of September 30, 2015, the portfolio’s annualized base rent and interest (based on rates in effect on September 30, 2015 for all lease and loan contracts) totaled $311.9 million. The weighted average non-cancellable remaining term of the leases at September 30, 2015 was approximately 15 years.

The Company's customers operate their businesses across 274 brand names, or concepts, and the largest single concept represented less than 3.3% of the Company's annualized base rent and interest as of September 30, 2015.

(1)   Represents the weighted average annual escalation rate of the entire portfolio as if the escalations in all leases were expressed on an annual basis and assumes the contracts that increase based on changes in CPI increase at the minimum of the stated fixed percentage in the contract.
(2) The Company defines occupancy as a property being subject to a lease or loan contract. As of September 30, 2015, two of the Company’s properties were vacant and not subject to a contract.
(3) Represents the number of the Company’s investment locations that have been closed by the tenant but remain subject to a lease.
(4) Percentage of investment portfolio in multiple properties with a single customer subject to master leases. Based on annualized base rent and interest, 81% of the investment portfolio involves multiple properties with a single customer, whether or not subject to a master lease.
(5) Represents the ratio of purchase price to replacement cost (new) at acquisition.
(6) STORE Capital calculates a unit’s FCCR generally as the ratio of (i) the unit’s EBITDAR, less a standardized corporate overhead expense based on estimated industry standards, to (ii) the unit’s total fixed charges, which are its lease expense, interest expense and scheduled principal payments on indebtedness. The 4-Wall coverage ratio refers to a unit’s FCCR before taking into account standardized corporate overhead expense.
(7) Represents the percentage of the Company’s contracts that have a STORE Score that is investment grade. The Company measures the credit quality of its portfolio on a contract-by-contract basis using the STORE Score, which is a risk measure reflective of both the credit risk of its tenants and the profitability of the operations at the properties. As of September 30, 2015, STORE Capital’s tenants had a median tenant credit profile of approximately ‘Ba1’ as measured by Moody's Analytics RiskCalc rating scale. However, considering the profitability of the operations at its properties and STORE’s assessment of the likelihood the tenants will choose to continue to operate at the properties in the event of their insolvency, the credit quality of its contracts, or STORE Score, is enhanced to a median of ‘A3’.
 

Capital Transactions

In September 2015, the Company expanded its revolving unsecured credit facility from $300 million to $400 million and the accordion feature from $200 million to $400 million for a total maximum borrowing capacity of $800 million. The amended credit facility matures in September 2019 and includes a one-year extension option subject to certain conditions.

STORE Capital today is announcing that it has received a BBB- rating by Fitch Ratings and intends to issue senior unsecured notes as early as the fourth quarter.

Commenting on the planned offering, Volk stated, “Our intention to issue investment-grade, unsecured notes is a deliberate and important step in our long-term strategy for broadening our borrowing sources and enhancing our capital efficiency. With this rating, STORE is amongst the very few equity REITs that will be an unsecured note issuer in addition to having our own highly-rated, non-recourse, secured debt conduit. Without question, having access to multiple investment-grade borrowing sources will benefit our shareholders and customers over the long term.”

2015 AFFO Guidance

STORE Capital is raising and narrowing its expectations for 2015 AFFO per share from a range of $1.38 to $1.42 to a range of $1.45 to $1.47, and is raising its projected 2015 annual real estate acquisition volume to approximately $1.1 billion. This AFFO per share guidance equates to anticipated net income of $0.67 to $0.68 per share, plus $0.70 to $0.71 per share depreciation and amortization, net of expected real estate gains/losses, plus approximately $0.08 per share related to noncash items and real estate transaction costs. AFFO per share is sensitive to the timing and amount of real estate acquisitions during the year, as well as to the spread achieved between the lease rates on new acquisitions and the interest rates on borrowings used to finance those acquisitions.

2016 AFFO Guidance

STORE Capital currently expects 2016 AFFO per share of $1.59 to $1.63, based on projected 2016 annual real estate acquisition volume of approximately $750 million. This AFFO per share guidance equates to anticipated net income of $0.74 to $0.77 per share, plus $0.76 to $0.77 per share of expected real estate depreciation and amortization, plus approximately $0.09 per share related to noncash items and real estate transaction costs. AFFO per share is sensitive to the timing and amount of real estate acquisitions during the year, as well as to the spread achieved between the lease rates on new acquisitions and the interest rates on borrowings used to finance those acquisitions.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

FFO and AFFO

STORE Capital’s reported results are presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. The Company also discloses Funds from Operations, or FFO, and Adjusted Funds from Operations, or AFFO, both of which are non-GAAP measures. Management believes these two non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they are widely accepted industry measures used by analysts and investors to compare the operating performance of REITs. FFO and AFFO do not represent cash generated from operating activities and are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash requirements; accordingly, they should not be considered alternatives to net income as a performance measure or to cash flows from operations as reported on our statement of cash flows as a liquidity measure and should be considered in addition to, and not in lieu of, GAAP financial measures.

The Company computes FFO in accordance with the definition adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT. NAREIT defines FFO as GAAP net income, excluding gains (or losses) from extraordinary items and sales of depreciable property, real estate impairment losses, and depreciation and amortization expense from real estate assets, including the pro rata share of such adjustments of unconsolidated subsidiaries.

To derive AFFO, the Company modifies the NAREIT computation of FFO to include other adjustments to GAAP net income related to non-cash revenues and expenses such as straight-line rents, amortization of deferred financing costs and stock-based compensation. In addition, in deriving AFFO, the Company excludes transaction costs associated with acquiring real estate subject to existing leases.

FFO is used by management, investors and analysts to facilitate meaningful comparisons of operating performance between periods and among the Company’s peers primarily because it excludes the effect of real estate depreciation and amortization and net gains on sales, which are based on historical costs and implicitly assume that the value of real estate diminishes predictably over time, rather than fluctuating based on existing market conditions. Management believes that AFFO provides more useful information to investors and analysts because it modifies FFO to exclude additional non-cash revenues and expenses such as straight-line rents, amortization of deferred financing costs and stock-based compensation as such items may cause short-term fluctuations in net income but have no impact on operating cash flows or long-term operating performance. Additionally, in deriving AFFO, the Company excludes transaction costs associated with acquiring real estate subject to existing leases. The Company views transaction costs to be a part of the investment in the real estate it acquires, similar to the treatment of acquisition and closing costs on sale-leaseback transactions, which are capitalized as a part of the investment in the asset. The Company believes that transaction costs are not an ongoing cost of the portfolio in place at the end of each reporting period and, for these reasons, the portion expensed is added back when computing AFFO. As a result, the Company believes AFFO to be a more meaningful measurement of ongoing performance that allows for greater performance comparability. Therefore, the Company discloses both FFO and AFFO and reconciles them to the most appropriate GAAP performance metric, which is net income. STORE Capital’s FFO and AFFO may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.
