Brandywine Realty Trust Announces Third Quarter 2019 Results, Narrows 2019 Guidance and Provides Initial 2020 Guidance

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brandywine Realty Trust (BDN) today reported its financial and operating results for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2019, narrowed full year 2019 guidance and introduced 2020 earnings guidance.

Management Comments

“We are encouraged by the continued execution of our 2019 business plan during the third quarter,” stated Gerard H. Sweeney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Brandywine Realty Trust.  “We are experiencing strong market conditions and continue to achieve our operating plan metrics.  In addition, we took advantage of the public debt markets to raise $214 million of unsecured bonds at a weighted average interest rate of 3.0% and weighted average maturity of 7.5 years.  A majority of the proceeds were used to pay-off the outstanding balance on our line of credit.  We are narrowing our 2019 FFO guidance from $1.40 to $1.44 per share to $1.41 to $1.43 per share.  We are also introducing our 2020 FFO guidance range of $1.41 to $1.51 per share.  Our 2020 guidance, at the midpoint, represents a comparable 3% annual FFO growth rate.”

Transaction Activity

Wholly-owned Dispositions

  • On September 11, 2019, we completed the sale of a 211,000 square foot office building located at 1900 Gallows Road in Vienna, Virginia for a gross sale price of $36.4 million.

Finance Activity

  • On October 3, 2019, we priced a $200.0 million underwritten public offering consisting of $100.0 million of our 4.100% guaranteed notes due 2024 (the “2024 Notes”) and $100.0 million of our 4.550% guaranteed notes due 2029 (the “2029 Notes” and, together with the 2024 Notes, the “Notes”).

    The 2024 Notes were offered to investors at a price of 106.315% of their principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest from and including October 1, 2019, with a re-offer yield of 2.669%.  The 2029 Notes were offered to investors at a price of 110.058% of their principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest from and including October 1, 2019, with a re-offer yield of 3.331%.  The 2024 Notes became part of the same series as the 4.100% guaranteed notes due 2024, $250.0 million of which were originally issued on September 16, 2014.  The 2029 Notes became part of the same series as the 4.550% guaranteed notes due 2029, $250.0 million of which were originally issued on September 16, 2014.

    The net proceeds of the offering, after deducting underwriting discounts and estimated transaction expenses related to this offering and excluding accrued interest paid by the purchasers of the 2024 notes and the 2029 notes, were approximately $214.3 million.  We used the net proceeds of the offering to reduce outstanding borrowings under the Operating Partnership’s unsecured revolving credit facility.  Any remaining net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, which may include the repayment, repurchase or other retirement of other indebtedness.

  • The $146.5 million outstanding balance on our $600.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility as of September 30, 2019 was subsequently repaid in October.

  • We have $29.9 million of cash and cash equivalents on-hand as of September 30, 2019.

Results for the Three and Nine-Month Periods Ended September 30, 2019

Net income allocated to common shares totaled $6.7 million or $0.04 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2019 compared to a net loss of ($43.3) million or ($0.24) per diluted share in the third quarter of 2018.  The 2018 results include an impairment charge totaling ($56.9) million, or ($0.32) per diluted share.

FFO available to common shares and units in the third quarter of 2019 totaled $64.0 million or $0.36 per diluted share versus $63.2 million or $0.35 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2018.  Our third quarter 2019 payout ratio ($0.19 common share distribution / $0.36 FFO per diluted share) was 52.8%. 

Net income allocated to common shares totaled $17.2 million or $0.10 per diluted share for the first nine months of 2019 compared to net income of $13.4 million or $0.07 per diluted share in the first nine months of 2018.

Operating and Leasing Activity

In the third quarter of 2019, our Net Operating Income (NOI) excluding termination revenues and other income items decreased (1.3%) on a GAAP basis and increased 0.6% on a cash basis for our 74 same store properties, which were 93.1% occupied on September 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018.

We leased approximately 577,000 square feet and commenced occupancy on 518,000 square feet during the third quarter of 2019.  The third quarter occupancy activity includes 241,000 square feet of renewals, 171,000 square feet of new leases and 106,000 square feet of tenant expansions.  We have an additional 383,000 square feet of executed new leasing scheduled to commence subsequent to September 30, 2019.

Forward-Looking Statements

Estimates of future earnings per share, FFO per share, common share dividend distributions and certain other statements in this release constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our and our affiliates’ actual results, performance, achievements or transactions to be materially different from any future results, performance, achievements or transactions expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.  Such risks, uncertainties and other factors relate to, among others: our ability to lease vacant space and to renew or relet space under expiring leases at expected levels; competition with other real estate companies for tenants; the potential loss or bankruptcy of major tenants; interest rate levels; the availability of debt, equity or other financing; risks of acquisitions, dispositions and developments, including the cost of construction delays and cost overruns; unanticipated operating and capital costs; our ability to obtain adequate insurance, including coverage for terrorist acts; dependence upon certain geographic markets; and general and local economic and real estate conditions, including the extent and duration of adverse changes that affect the industries in which our tenants operate.  The declaration and payment of future dividends (both timing and amount) is subject to the determination of our Board of Trustees, in its sole discretion, after considering various factors, including the Company's financial condition, historical and forecast operating results, and available cash flow, as well as any applicable laws and contractual covenants and any other relevant factors.  The Company's practice regarding payment of dividends may be modified at any time and from time to time.  Additional information on factors which could impact us and the forward-looking statements contained herein are included in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.  We assume no obligation to update or supplement forward-looking statements that become untrue because of subsequent events except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Supplemental Financial Measures

We compute our financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).  Although FFO and NOI are non-GAAP financial measures, we believe that FFO and NOI calculations are helpful to shareholders and potential investors and are widely recognized measures of real estate investment trust performance.  At the end of this press release, we have provided a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure.

Funds from Operations (FFO)

We compute FFO in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), which may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not compute FFO in accordance with the NAREIT definition, or that interpret the NAREIT definition differently than us.  NAREIT defines FFO as net income (loss) before non-controlling interests and excluding gains (losses) on sales of depreciable operating property, impairment losses on depreciable consolidated real estate, impairment losses on investments in unconsolidated real estate ventures and extraordinary items (computed in accordance with GAAP); plus real estate related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs), and after similar adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures.  Net income, the GAAP measure that we believe to be most directly comparable to FFO, includes depreciation and amortization expenses, gains or losses on property sales, extraordinary items and non-controlling interests.  To facilitate a clear understanding of our historical operating results, FFO should be examined in conjunction with net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) as presented in the financial statements included elsewhere in this release.  FFO does not represent cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP) and should not be considered to be an alternative to net income (loss) (determined in accordance with GAAP) as an indication of our financial performance or to be an alternative to cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available for our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions to shareholders.

Net Operating Income (NOI)

NOI is a financial measure equal to net income available to common shareholders, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, plus corporate general and administrative expense, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, non-controlling interest in the Operating Partnership and losses from early extinguishment of debt, less interest income, development and management income, gains from property dispositions, gains on sale from discontinued operations, gains on early extinguishment of debt, income from discontinued operations, income from unconsolidated joint ventures and non-controlling interest in property partnerships.  In some cases we also present NOI on a cash basis, which is NOI after eliminating the effects of straight-lining of rent and deferred market intangible amortization.  NOI presented by us may not be comparable to NOI reported by other REITs that define NOI differently.  NOI should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indication of our performance or to cash flows as a measure of the Company's liquidity or its ability to make distributions.  NOI is a useful measure for evaluating the operating performance of our properties, as it excludes certain components from net income available to common shareholders in order to provide results that are more closely related to a property's results of operations.  NOI is used internally to evaluate the performance of our operating segments and to make decisions about resource allocations.  We concluded that NOI provides useful information to investors regarding our financial condition and results of operations, as it reflects only the income and expense items incurred at the property level, as well as the impact on operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs and acquisition and development activity on an unlevered basis.

Core Portfolio

Our core portfolio is comprised of our wholly-owned properties, excluding any properties currently in development, re-development or re-entitlement.

Revision of Prior Period Financial Statements

Our comparative three-month and nine-month 2018 results have been adjusted to correct for the effects of errors discovered during the second quarter of 2019 relating to the purchase price allocation and depreciable lives for two acquisitions made in a prior period.  We have evaluated the impact of the errors to previously issued financial statements and concluded that the error was immaterial to our previously issued financial statements, however, to correct the cumulative effect of the errors in 2019 would significantly impact the 2019 financial statements. Accordingly, we have corrected previously issued financial statements.  The corrections to our balance sheets include a reduction in cumulative earnings and operating properties and an increase to accumulated depreciation. The corrections to our income statements result in an increase in depreciation and amortization and property operating expenses.  In addition, we reversed the impact of an out of period adjustment which was previously disclosed in our Q1 2019 10-Q.
