Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Financial and Operational Highlights:

  • Reported Funds From Operations (FFO) of $0.17 per share for the 3 months ended December 31, 2013.
  • As previously reported, same property portfolio occupancy increased 3.0 percentage points to 89.3% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012.

  • As previously reported, signed new and renewal leases totaling approximately 386,000 square feet, resulting in approximately 77,000 square feet of positive net absorption and increased GAAP leasing spreads of 12.9% and cash leasing spreads of 3.5% during the fourth quarter of 2013.
  • In the fourth quarter, acquired six properties totaling approximately 832,000 square feet for an aggregate cost of $69.7 million. Subsequent to year end, acquired four properties totaling approximately 352,000 square feet for an aggregate cost of $29.1 million.

“Our fourth quarter 2013 financial results reflect the strong operating and leasing metrics which we pre-released in February. The execution of our operating and leasing strategies combined with the steady improvement in our core Southern California infill industrial markets drive these positive results,” stated Michael Frankel and Howard Schwimmer, Rexford Industrial’s Co-Chief Executive Officers. “In addition, with our initial public offering completed last July, we were well-positioned to accelerate our investment pace, acquiring six properties in the fourth quarter for $69.7 million. This activity has continued into early 2014, with another 4 acquisitions closed, for a total cost of $29.1 million. In the eight months since our initial public offering, we have acquired 1.3 million square feet of industrial property, representing a 24.6% increase in our owned portfolio and we continue to review and pursue a substantial pipeline of potential investment opportunities from a variety of sources.”
