Marketwired

GREAT NECK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 17, 2014) - One Liberty Properties, Inc. (NYSE: OLP), today announced operating results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013.

"We made considerable progress in 2013, including increasing funds from operations and strengthening the quality of our assets," commented Patrick J. Callan, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of One Liberty. "With a record $107.5 million of acquisitions completed in 2013, combined with select dispositions of properties, we again demonstrated the effectiveness of our deliberate and selective approach toward growth. Entering 2014, we continue to pursue transactions that will contribute to the stability and growth of our portfolio."

Fourth Quarter Operating Results:

Rental income for the three months ended December 31, 2013 increased $2.85 million or 25.2% to $14.17 million, from $11.32 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012, due to the Company's 2013 and 2012 acquisitions.

Income from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2013 was $3.41 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to $2.49 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase is due primarily to One Liberty's 2013 and 2012 acquisitions.

Net income attributable to One Liberty in the fourth quarter of 2013 was $3.48 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, compared to $4.93 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012. The change is due to the inclusion, in the fourth quarter of 2012, of $2.42 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, of income from discontinued operations related primarily to gains from strategic dispositions of properties. 

Funds from Operations ("FFO") was $7.26 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, compared to $5.84 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, in the corresponding period of 2012. The 17.9% per share increase is attributable primarily to the Company's acquisitions during the year. A reconciliation of GAAP amounts to non-GAAP amounts is presented with the financial information included in this release.

During the quarter ended December 31, 2013, we issued an aggregate of 119,126 shares at an average price of $20.32 per share, net of commissions, through our cost effective dividend reinvestment and at the market offering programs.

Full Year 2013 Operating Results:

Rental income for 2013 increased 16.4% to $50.98 million from $43.79 million for 2012, primarily due to the impact of acquisitions in 2013 and 2012.

Income from continuing operations increased to $17.41 million, or $1.11 per diluted share, from $11.33 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, in 2012. Contributing to the 46.1% per share improvement were increases in rental income and an aggregate gain of $4.7 million, or $.30 per diluted share, from the sale of joint venture real estate and an interest in a joint venture.

Net income attributable to One Liberty was $17.88 million, or $1.14 per diluted share, in 2013, compared to $32.32 million, or $2.16 per diluted share, in 2012. The change is due primarily to the inclusion in 2012 of an aggregate gain of $19.41 million, or $1.30 per diluted share, from the sales of properties.

Income from discontinued operations was $515,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, in 2013 compared to $20.98 million, or $1.40 per diluted share, in 2012. The change is due to the inclusion in 2012 of the gain in such year from the sales of properties.

FFO for 2013 was $25.85 million, or $1.67 per diluted share, compared to 2012 FFO of $23.78 million, or $1.59 per diluted share.

During 2013, we issued an aggregate of 572,887 shares at an average price of $23.50 per share, net of commissions, through our dividend reinvestment and at the market offering programs.

Balance Sheet:

At December 31, 2013, the Company had $16.63 million of cash and cash equivalents, total assets of $571.90 million, total debt of $301.30 million and total equity of $250.09 million.

At March 12, 2014, One Liberty's available liquidity was approximately $69.4 million, including approximately $7.2 million of cash and cash equivalents (net of the credit facility's required $7.5 million deposit maintenance balance) and $62.2 million available under its credit facility.

Subsequent Events:

On February 25, 2014, the Company refinanced a $16.26 million mortgage with a $19.75 million mortgage at an annual interest rate of 4.75%, representing a 101 basis point reduction in rate. The new mortgage debt matures in 2024, is interest only for five years and amortizes thereafter on a 30 year schedule.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

One Liberty believes that Funds from Operations ("FFO") is a widely recognized and appropriate measure of the performance of an equity REIT. One Liberty presents FFO because it considers FFO to be an important supplemental measure of One Liberty's operating performance. One Liberty believes FFO is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting their results. FFO is intended to exclude generally accepted accounting principles ("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. As a result, FFO 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, interest costs and other matters without the inclusion of depreciation and amortization, providing perspective that may not necessarily be apparent from net income.

One Liberty has determined FFO in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. ("NAREIT"). FFO is defined by NAREIT as net income (or loss) computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, plus impairment write-downs of depreciable real estate and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and is not indicative of cash available to fund cash needs. FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity. Management believes this is appropriate and relevant to securities analysts, investors and other interested parties and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures as reported by others.
