(1) Consolidated basis – includes amounts attributable to non-controlling interests.
(2) Excluding realized gains, Company FFO was $335 million compared with $246 million in the prior year period. See "Basis of Presentation" and “Reconciliation of Non-IFRS Measures” in this press release for the definition and components.
(3) Represents basic net income attributable to holders of LP units. IFRS requires the inclusion of preferred shares that are mandatorily convertible into LP units at a price of $25.70 without an add-back to earnings of the associated carry on the preferred shares.
(4) Net income attributable to holders of LP units and Company FFO and realized gains per unit are reduced by preferred dividends of $3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively in determining per unit amounts.
(5) Company FFO and realized gains per unit are calculated based on 952.1 million (2018 – 703.1 million) and 961.4 million (2018 – 703.3 million) units outstanding for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019.  Excluding realized gains, Company FFO per unit was $0.35, consistent with the prior year period. See reconciliation of basic net income in the "Reconciliation of Non-IFRS Measures" section in this press release.


Company FFO and realized gains was $362 million ($0.38 per unit) for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared to $250 million ($0.36 per unit) for the same period in 2018. The increase is attributable to higher realized gains in our LP investments segment, same-property growth in our Core Office business, and earnings from new capital invested in our Core Retail business.

Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $23 million ($0.12 per LP unit) versus $1,051 million ($0.69 per LP unit) for the same period in 2018. The decrease is primarily attributable to higher valuation gains recognized in the prior-year period.    

Operating Highlights

Our Core Office operations generated Company FFO of $187 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared to $149 million in the same period in 2018. The business generated 3% same-property NOI growth and fee income of $64 million, which was $44 million higher than in the prior period. The increase in Company FFO over the prior year is primarily due to same-property growth and a performance-based fee at Five Manhattan West, partially offset by asset sales, higher interest rates and a stronger U.S. dollar.

Occupancy in our Core Office portfolio finished the second quarter at 92.4% on 1.2 million square feet of total leasing, representing decreases in occupancy of 30 basis points year-over-year and 90 basis points sequentially driven primarily by expiries in New York and London. Leases signed in the second quarter were at rents 25% higher on average than leases that expired in the period.

Our Core Retail operations generated Company FFO of $170 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared to $119 million in the comparable period in 2018. The increase over the prior year reporting period is attributable to the acquisition of GGP in the third quarter of 2018. After adjusting for the temporary incremental impact of recent bankruptcies, which for the current quarter reduced NOI by $7.7 million and on a year to date basis by $13.9 million, same store NOI increased by 0.4% and 1.7% for the quarter and year-to-date, respectively1. Since the beginning of 2018, tenant bankruptcies resulted in 2.7 million square feet within the portfolio becoming vacant, of which nearly 75% will be occupied with new tenants by this year end and contributing to earnings.
1) Same-store NOI including impact of bankruptcies were -1.4% for the quarter and 0.1% on a year-to-date basis.

Our Core Retail business leased over 9.8 million square feet over the past 12 months with suite-to-suite rent spreads growing at 7.2%2. At quarter-end, the portfolio was 95.0% leased and we expect it to increase through the remainder of the year to 96%. In-place rents increased 2.2% throughout the portfolio, with NOI-weighted sales growing 5.2% to $777 per square foot, a new high for the portfolio.
2) Excluding certain short-term renewals at Ala Moana Center.  This metric is weighted by NOI.

Our LP Investments generated Company FFO and realized gains of $106 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared to $87 million in the comparable period in 2018. Strong performance in our hospitality portfolio during the quarter and contributions from investments in BSREP III were offset by the loss of income from the sale of stable and mature investments and higher average interest rates.

Dispositions

In the second quarter of 2019 we completed $326 million of gross asset dispositions at our share, at prices that were 9% higher than our IFRS carrying values. These sales generated $173 million in net proceeds. Dispositions completed in the second quarter include:

  • Our 43% interest in 2001 M Street in Washington, D.C. for net proceeds of $45 million.
  • Our 50% interest in the office building at 240 Queen Street in Brisbane for net proceeds of $36 million. 
  • Our interest in the Marina Village office park in Alameda, CA for net proceeds of $27 million. 

In addition, subsequent to quarter-end we entered into contracts to sell:

  • Our remaining 26% interest in 75 State Street in Boston for net proceeds of $79 million.
  • Our 30% stake in the Darling Park Complex in Sydney for net proceeds of A$432 million.
  • The majority of assets in our Manhattan multifamily portfolio for net proceeds of $135 million.
  • A portion of our triple net lease automotive dealership assets (CARS) for net proceeds of $24 million.

Balance Sheet Update

To increase liquidity and extend the maturity of our debt, during and subsequent to the second quarter we executed the following financing transactions:

  • In Core Office, we raised an aggregate of $1.1 billion in fixed-rate mortgages with an average term of nine years at an average interest rate of 4.28%, as well as an aggregate of $1.2 billion in floating-rate mortgages with an average term of five years.
  • In Core Retail, we raised an aggregate of $1.4 billion in fixed-rate mortgages with an average term of ten years at an average interest rate of 4.32%, as well as an aggregate of $515 million in floating-rate mortgages with an average term of five years. 

Unit Repurchase Program

Utilizing in-place normal course issuer bids (“NCIBs”), we purchased 2,880,614 of BPY units and BPR shares in the second quarter of 2019 at an average price of $19.38 per unit/share.

Subsequent to quarter-end, we purchased 396,712 additional BPY units and BPR shares at an average price of $18.90 per unit/share.

Distribution Declaration

The Board of Directors has declared a quarterly distribution on the partnership’s LP units of $0.33 per unit payable on September 30, 2019 to unitholders of record at the close of business on August 30, 2019.

The quarterly distributions on the LP units are declared in U.S. dollars. Registered unitholders residing in the United States shall receive quarterly cash distributions in U.S. dollars and registered unitholders not residing in the United States shall receive quarterly cash distributions in the Canadian dollar equivalent, based on the Bank of Canada exchange rate on the record date. Registered unitholders residing in the United States have the option, through Brookfield Property Partners’ transfer agent, AST Trust Company (Canada) ("AST"), to elect to receive quarterly cash distributions in the Canadian dollar equivalent and registered unitholders not residing in the United States have the option through AST to elect to receive quarterly cash distributions in U.S. dollars. Beneficial unitholders (i.e., those holding their units in street name with their brokerage) should contact the broker with whom their units are held to discuss their options regarding distribution currency.

The Board of Directors has also declared a quarterly distribution on the partnership’s preferred units of $0.40625 per unit payable on September 30, 2019 to holders of record at the close of business on September 2, 2019. 

Additional Information

Further details regarding the operations of the Partnership are set forth in regulatory filings. A copy of the filings may be obtained through the website of the SEC at www.sec.gov and on the Partnership’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

The Partnership’s quarterly letter to unitholders and supplemental information package can be accessed before the market open on August 2, 2019 at bpy.brookfield.com.  This additional information should be read in conjunction with this press release. 

Basis of Presentation

This press release and accompanying financial information make reference to net operating income (“NOI”), same-property NOI, funds from operations (“FFO”), Company FFO and realized gains (“Company FFO and realized gains”) and net income attributable to unitholders.

Company FFO and realized gains, and net income attributable to unitholders are also presented on a per unit basis. NOI, same-property NOI, FFO, Company FFO and realized gains, and net income attributable to unitholders do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The Partnership uses NOI, same-property NOI, FFO, Company FFO and realized gains, and net income attributable to unitholders to assess its operating results. These measures should not be used as alternatives to Net Income and other operating measures determined in accordance with IFRS, but rather to provide supplemental insights into performance.  Further, these measures do not represent liquidity measures or cash flow from operations and are not intended to be representative of the funds available for distribution to unitholders either in aggregate or on a per unit basis, where presented.

NOI is defined as revenues from commercial and hospitality operations of consolidated properties less direct commercial property and hospitality expenses. As NOI includes the revenues and expenses directly associated with owning and operating commercial property and hospitality assets, it provides a measure to evaluate the performance of the property operations.

Same-property NOI is a subset of NOI, which excludes NOI that is earned from assets acquired, disposed of or developed during the periods presented, or not of a recurring nature, and from opportunistic assets. Same-property NOI allows the Partnership to segregate the performance of leasing and operating initiatives on the portfolio from the impact to performance from investing activities and “one-time items,” which for the historical periods presented consist primarily of lease termination income.

FFO is defined as income, including equity accounted income, before realized gains (losses) from the sale of investment property (except gains (losses) related to properties developed for sale), fair value gains (losses) (including equity accounted fair value gains (losses)), depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, income tax expense (benefit), and less non-controlling interests of others in operating subsidiaries and properties. FFO is a widely recognized measure that is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of real estate entities, particularly those that own and operate income producing properties. The Partnership’s definition of FFO includes all of the adjustments that are outlined in the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) definition of FFO. In addition to the adjustments prescribed by NAREIT, the Partnership also makes adjustments to exclude any unrealized fair value gains (or losses) that arise as a result of reporting under IFRS, and income taxes that arise as certain of its subsidiaries are structured as corporations as opposed to real estate investment trusts (“REITs”). These additional adjustments result in an FFO measure that is similar to that which would result if the Partnership was organized as a REIT that determined net income in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”), which is the type of organization on which the NAREIT definition is premised. The Partnership’s FFO measure will differ from other organizations applying the NAREIT definition to the extent of certain differences between the IFRS and U.S. GAAP reporting frameworks, principally related to the recognition of lease termination income. FFO provides a performance measure that, when compared year-over-year, reflects the impact on operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs and interest costs.

Company FFO and realized gains is defined as FFO before the impact of depreciation and amortization of non-real estate assets, transaction costs, gains (losses) associated with non-investment properties, imputed interest on equity accounted investments, realized gains in the partnership’s LP Investment segment and the partnership’s share of BSREP III Company FFO and realized gains. Realized LP Investment gains represent income earned on investing activity when fund investments are realized, inclusive of associated change in carried interest to be due at a future date to the general partner of the relevant Brookfield Asset Management-sponsored funds. The partnership accounts for the investment in BSREP III as a financial asset and income (loss) of the fund is not presented in the partnership’s results. Distributions from BSREP III, recorded as dividend income under IFRS, are removed from investment and other income for Company FFO and realized gains presentation.

Net income attributable to unitholders is defined as net income attributable to holders of general partnership units and limited partnership units of the Partnership, redeemable/exchangeable and special limited partnership units of Brookfield Property L.P., limited partnership units of Brookfield Office Properties Exchange LP and Class A shares of Brookfield Property REIT Inc. Net income attributable to unitholders is used by the Partnership to evaluate the performance of the Partnership as a whole as each of the unitholders participates in the economics of the Partnership equally. In calculating net income attributable to unitholders per unit, the Partnership excludes the impact of mandatorily convertible preferred units in determining the average number of units outstanding as the holders of mandatorily convertible preferred units do not participate in current earnings.  The Partnership reconciles this measure to basic net income attributable to unitholders per unit determined in accordance with IFRS which includes the effect of mandatorily convertible preferred units in the basic average number of units outstanding.
