Stratus Properties Inc. Reports Year Ended December 31, 2017 Results

AUSTIN, Texas--()--Stratus Properties Inc. (NASDAQ: STRS), a diversified real estate company with multi- and single-family residential and commercial real estate development, real estate leasing, hotel and entertainment businesses in the Austin, Texas area and other select Texas markets, today reported year ended December 31, 2017 results.

Highlights:

  • Net income attributable to common stockholders totaled $3.9 million, $0.47 per share, for 2017, compared with a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $6.0 million, $0.74 per share, for 2016. Full-year 2017 results include an after-tax gain on the sale of assets of $16.4 million, $2.01 per share, primarily associated with the recognition of the majority of the gain on the sale of The Oaks at Lakeway, partly offset by a non-cash tax charge of $7.6 million, $0.93 per share, associated with United States (U.S.) tax reform. Stratus currently estimates that its federal tax rate for 2018 will be 21 percent as a result of U.S. tax reform.
  • Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) increased to $9.7 million in 2017 from $9.3 million in 2016. For a reconciliation of net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders to Adjusted EBITDA, see the supplemental schedule, "Adjusted EBITDA," on page V.
  • Returned $8.1 million to shareholders through a $1.00 per share special cash dividend in April 2017 following the $114 million sale of The Oaks at Lakeway in February 2017.
  • Stratus' cumulative total stockholder return of 262 percent over the five years ended December 31, 2017, exceeded comparable returns for the S&P 500 Index, the Dow Jones U.S. Real Estate Index, and a custom group of peer real estate related companies by wide margins.
  • Reduced consolidated debt by 24 percent to $221.5 million at December 31, 2017, of which 67 percent is fixed-rate debt with an average interest rate of 5.55 percent, and 33 percent is variable-rate debt with an average interest rate of 4.30 percent, compared to $291.1 million at December 31, 2016.
  • Completed construction of West Killeen Market, an HEB Grocery Company, L.P. (HEB)-anchored retail development in Killeen Texas, on schedule and under budget in June 2017.
  • Obtained project financing for, and commenced construction of: (1) phase one of Lantana Place, a mixed-use development project in southwest Austin, (2) the retail component of Jones Crossing, a new HEB-anchored, mixed use development in College Station, Texas, and (3) Santal Phase II, a 212-unit garden style multi-family project in Barton Creek.
  • Operating income for the Entertainment segment, which includes Austin City Limits Live (ACL Live) and 3TEN ACL Live, increased 59 percent to $4.0 million in 2017, compared to $2.5 million in 2016.
  • Real estate sales revenue increased by four percent to $11.1 million, primarily from the sales of 12 lots in Meridian in Circle C and 7 lots and 1 townhome in Amarra Drive in Barton Creek.
  • Capital expenditures and purchases and development of real estate increased to $48.5 million in 2017 from $42.8 million in 2016, primarily reflecting investment in development projects to drive future cash flows.
  • Received proceeds totaling $13.8 million in 2017 from Travis County municipal utility districts (MUD). Stratus has received MUD reimbursements for substantially all infrastructure costs incurred to date in connection with its development of Barton Creek. In November 2017, the city of Magnolia and the state of Texas approved creation of a MUD, which will provide an opportunity for Stratus to recoup approximately $26 million over the life of the project for future road and utility infrastructure costs incurred in connection with its development of the Magnolia project.

William H. Armstrong III, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our success in 2017 reflects the strength of our active development plan. Our sale of The Oaks at Lakeway at a substantial gain allowed us to return $8.1 million to shareholders in the form of a $1.00 per share special cash dividend in 2017. In addition, we reduced our consolidated debt and strengthened our financial position. As we enter 2018, the Austin and surrounding area real estate markets remain robust and we intend to capitalize on the entitlements, regulatory approvals and utility capacity already in place for our developments. We remain focused on enhancing the value of our properties and creating value for shareholders.”

a.

Includes gains of $25.4 million ($16.4 million to net income attributable to common stockholders or $2.01 per share) associated with the recognition of the majority of the of the gain on the sale of The Oaks at Lakeway and the sale of a bank building and an adjacent undeveloped 4.1 acre tract of land in Barton Creek, partly offset by a charge of $2.5 million ($1.6 million to net income attributable to common stockholders or $0.20 per share) for profit participation associated with the sale of The Oaks at Lakeway.

b.

Includes a tax charge of $7.6 million ($0.93 per share) to adjust deferred tax assets based on lower federal corporate tax rates as a result of U.S. tax reform.

Revenue from the Real Estate Operations segment totaled $11.1 million for 2017, compared to $10.8 million for 2016, primarily reflecting the sale of 12 lots at Meridian in Circle C and 7 lots and 1 townhome at Amarra Drive in Barton Creek. Operating income from the Real Estate Operations segment decreased for 2017, primarily reflecting the sale of fewer developed lots. In March 2018, Stratus entered into a contract to sell one Amarra Drive Phase II lot and eight Amarra Drive Phase III lots for a total of $5.9 million. In accordance with the contract, the parties are required to close on the sale of these lots ratably before December 31, 2018. If the purchaser fails to close on the sale of the minimum number of lots by any of the specified closing dates, Stratus may elect to terminate the contract but would retain the related $45 thousand earnest money. In addition, as of February 28, 2018, six Phase III lots were under contract, one of which closed in March.

The decrease in revenue from the Leasing Operations segment for 2017 primarily reflects the sale of The Oaks at Lakeway in February, partially offset by an increase in revenue from Santal Phase I. The increase in operating income for 2017 primarily reflects the gain on sales of assets totaling $25.4 million related to the sale of The Oaks at Lakeway and a bank building in Barton Creek Village and an adjacent undeveloped 4.1 acre tract of land. Stratus recognized $24.3 million of the gain on the sale of The Oaks at Lakeway during the third quarter of 2017 after the hotel tenant began making rent payments under its lease for the hotel pad site on the property, obtained construction financing and began construction of the hotel, at which point Stratus' estimated maximum exposure to loss declined to a level below the related deferred gain balance. The remaining unrecognized deferred gain totaled $11.3 million at December 31, 2017. Stratus intends to explore opportunities to sell the 22,366-square-foot retail complex in the first phase of Barton Creek Village later this year depending on market conditions.

The decrease in revenue and operating income from the Hotel segment for 2017 reflects increased competition from several newly completed hotels in the downtown Austin area. Revenue per available room (RevPAR), which is calculated by dividing total room revenue by the average number of total rooms available during the year, was $253 in 2017, compared with $259 in 2016. RevPar ranked fourth among all Texas hotels in 2017. Since 2015, approximately 3,200 new hotel rooms were added to the downtown Austin hotel market. This increase in competition as well as the anticipated opening of additional hotel rooms in downtown Austin during 2018, is expected to further impact future hotel revenues, although significant population growth in the Austin market and a rising number of tourists visiting the city are positive factors for increasing demand.

The increase in revenue and operating income from the Entertainment segment for 2017 primarily reflects higher ticket sales at ACL Live. The venue hosted 224 events and sold more than 221,000 tickets in 2017, both new records. Additionally, 3TEN ACL Live, which opened in March 2016, hosted 228 events during 2017, driving attendance up 60 percent since opening.

Active Development Plan

Stratus’ active development plan includes both residential and commercial development projects that are available to strategically market and sell at appropriate times in order to maximize stockholder value. Stratus’ significant development portfolio consists of approximately 1,800 acres of commercial, multi-family and single-family projects under development or undeveloped and held for future use. During 2017, Stratus made significant progress in advancing its development projects as follows:

  • Completed construction of West Killeen Market, a retail development project in Killeen Texas, anchored by a 90,000-square-foot HEB grocery store and consisting of approximately 44,000 square feet of total tenant leasing space, on schedule and under budget in June 2017. The HEB store opened in April 2017 and 60 percent of the available retail space was under lease at December 31, 2017. Stratus intends to explore opportunities to sell West Killeen Market later this year depending on leasing progress and market conditions.
  • Secured project financing and commenced construction of phase one of Lantana Place, a mixed- use development in southwest Austin consisting of approximately 320,000 square feet of retail, hotel and office space. The initial phase of the project will be anchored by a 12-screen Moviehouse theater, which is expected to be completed on schedule during the second quarter of 2018.
  • Secured project financing and commenced construction of the retail component of Jones Crossing, an HEB-anchored, mixed use development in College Station, Texas, which is expected to total approximately 258,000 square feet of commercial space, including the 106,000-square-foot HEB grocery store which is currently expected to open in August 2018.
  • Secured project financing and commenced construction of Santal Phase II, a 212-unit garden style, multi-family project located directly adjacent to Santal Phase I in the upscale, highly populated Barton Creek community. Stratus expects to begin leasing units during the third quarter of 2018 and complete construction during the fourth quarter of 2018.
  • Advanced development plans for Magnolia, an HEB anchored retail development project in Magnolia, Texas, which includes 351,000 square feet of total tenant leasing space and 1,200 multi-family units. The HEB store is currently expected to open in 2020. In November 2017, the city of Magnolia and the state of Texas approved creation of a MUD which will provide an opportunity for Stratus to recoup approximately $26 million over the life of the project for future road and utility infrastructure costs incurred in connection with its development of the Magnolia project.
  • Secured final building permits for The St. Mary, a 240-unit multi-family development in the Circle C community, and subject to obtaining project financing, we intend to commence construction in the second quarter of 2018.

Debt and Liquidity

At December 31, 2017, Stratus had consolidated debt of $221.5 million, compared to $291.1 million at December 31, 2016. During 2017, Stratus used approximately $62 million of the proceeds from the sale of The Oaks at Lakeway to repay outstanding debt.

Purchases and development of real estate properties (included in operating cash flows) and capital expenditures (included in investing cash flows) totaled $48.5 million for 2017, primarily for the development of Barton Creek properties, Lantana Place, Santal Phase II, West Killeen Market, and Jones Crossing, compared with $42.8 million for 2016, primarily for the development of Barton Creek properties, Santal Phase I and The Oaks at Lakeway.

As of December 31, 2017, Stratus had $19.2 million available under its $45.0 million Comerica Bank revolving credit facility, and $14.6 million of cash and cash equivalents. In November 2017, Stratus obtained a one-year extension of the Comerica Bank facility through November 30, 2018. Stratus continues to negotiate a modification and a longer-term extension of its credit facility.

Stockholder Return

The cumulative total stockholder return on Stratus' common stock over the five years ending December 31, 2017, of 262 percent exceeded comparable returns for the S&P 500 Index (101 percent), the Dow Jones U.S. Real Estate Index (56 percent) and a custom group of peer real estate-related companies (39 percent). This comparison, which is included in Stratus' Annual Report on Form 10-K filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission, assumes $100.00 invested at December 31, 2012, with all dividends reinvested. The stock price performance is not necessarily indicative of future performance.

Under Stratus’ loan agreement with Comerica Bank, Stratus is not permitted to pay dividends on common stock without Comerica’s prior written consent, which was obtained in connection with the special dividend paid in April 2017. The declaration of dividends is at the discretion of Stratus’ Board of Directors (Board), subject to restrictions under Stratus’ loan agreement with Comerica Bank, and will depend on Stratus’ financial results, cash requirements, projected compliance with covenants in its debt agreements, outlook and other factors deemed relevant by the Board.

Stratus cautions readers that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, and its actual results may differ materially from those anticipated, projected or assumed in the forward-looking statements.

Investors are cautioned that many of the assumptions upon which Stratus' forward-looking statements are based are likely to change after the forward-looking statements are made. Further, Stratus may make changes to its business plans that could affect its results. Stratus cautions investors that it does not intend to update its forward-looking statements more frequently than quarterly notwithstanding any changes in its assumptions, business plans, actual experience, or other changes, and Stratus undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURE

ADJUSTED EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) is a non-GAAP (U.S. generally accepted accounting principles) financial measure that is frequently used by securities analysts, investors, lenders and others to evaluate companies' recurring operating performance, including, among other things, profitability before the effect of financing and similar decisions. Because securities analysts, investors, lenders and others use Adjusted EBITDA, management believes that Stratus' presentation of Adjusted EBITDA affords them greater transparency in assessing its financial performance. This information differs from net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance determined in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies, as different companies may calculate such measures differently. Management strongly encourages investors to review Stratus' consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety. A reconciliation of Stratus' net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders to Adjusted EBITDA follows (in thousands).
