KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • Over 875,000 square feet of leases were executed in the second quarter, including comparable leases of approximately 411,000 square feet signed at 9.1% higher average rents versus the prior leases.

  • Portfolio occupancy increased 20 basis points to 89.7% as of June 30, 2023, compared with portfolio occupancy of 89.5% as of June 30, 2022. Same-center occupancy for malls, lifestyle centers and outlet centers was 88.5% as of June 30, 2023, a 50-basis-point increase from 88.0% as of June 30, 2022.

  • Same-center NOI declined 0.8% during the second quarter 2023 as compared with the prior-year quarter near the high end of the full-year guidance range. As anticipated due to the moderation in tenant sales, percentage rent declined $0.9 million. For the six months ended June 30, 2023, same-center NOI declined 2.7%, near the mid-point of the previously issued guidance range.

  • FFO, as adjusted, per share for the second quarter 2023, was $1.56, in-line with expectations. FFO, as adjusted, per share was $1.88 for the second quarter 2022.

  • CBL increased the low end of its 2023 FFO, as adjusted, per share, guidance to a range of $6.00 - $6.47 and 2023 same-center NOI guidance to the range of $423 million - $440 million.

  • Same-center tenant sales per square foot for the second quarter 2023 declined 7.1%. Same-center tenant sales per square foot for the 12-months ended June 30, 2023, declined 3.8% to $425, compared with $442 for the prior period.

  • As of June 30, 2023, the Company had $279.8 million of unrestricted cash and marketable securities.

  • CBL's Board of Directors declared a regular cash dividend for the second quarter 2023 of $0.375 per share, representing an annualized dividend of $1.50 per share.

"Strong leasing was the highlight of our second quarter results as the CBL team successfully leveraged healthy tenant demand for our portfolio," said Stephen D. Lebovitz, CBL's chief executive officer. "Leasing metrics were the strongest in several years, with healthy positive new and renewal lease spreads and year-over-year occupancy growth, providing solid evidence of the constructive environment. We intend to take advantage of the more favorable supply/demand dynamic in our leasing negotiations going forward.

"Second quarter same-center NOI was near the high-end of our full-year guidance range. As a result of the year-to-date performance and our expectations for the remainder of the year, we raised the low-end of our FFO, as adjusted and same-center NOI guidance ranges. Leasing-led revenue gains were offset by an expected reduction in percentage rent. We successfully managed inflationary pressure on costs, generating a modest reduction in operating expense for the quarter on a same-center basis.

"We are also making progress addressing our loan maturities and de-risking our balance sheet. During the quarter, we closed a two-year extension on the loan secured by Cross Creek Mall and are currently in process on the refinancing of the loan secured by The Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta. While the financing markets remain challenging, we are encouraged by the reception we are seeing in the market. As we move into the second half of 2023, we remain focused on achieving further operational improvement, generating greater free cash flow and maintaining a disciplined approach to capital allocation."

DIVIDEND

On August 9, 2023, CBL’s Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend for the three months ended September 30, 2023, of $0.375 per share. The dividend, which equates to an annual dividend payment of $1.50 per share, is payable on September 29, 2023, to shareholders of record as of September 15, 2023.

FINANCING ACTIVITY

Year-to-date, CBL has completed more than $406.0 in financing activity.

On June 9, 2023, CBL closed on the extension and modification of the $94.8 million loan secured by Cross Creek Mall in Fayetteville, NC. The newly modified loan has a maturity date of June 9, 2025, and carries a fixed interest rate of 8.19%.

On March 16, 2023, CBL and its 50% joint venture partner closed on the extension and modification of the $161.9 million loan ($80.9 million at CBL’s 50% share) secured by West County Center, a high-performing enclosed mall in St. Louis, MO. At closing, the newly modified non-recourse loan had a principal balance of $156.9 million ($78.5 million at CBL’s share) and was extended for an initial term of two years to December 2024, with one two-year conditional extension available upon meeting certain requirements. The loan maintained the existing fixed interest rate of 3.4%.

On April 4, 2023, CBL and its 50% joint venture partner closed a new $148.0 million loan ($74.0 million at CBL’s 50% share) secured by Friendly Center and The Shops at Friendly Center, the premier lifestyle center located in Greensboro, NC. The new non-recourse five-year loan bears a fixed interest rate of 6.44% and replaces two loans with an aggregate balance of $145.2 million ($72.6 million at CBL’s share) that were set to mature in April 2023.

On April 28, 2023, CBL and its joint venture partner retired the $7.2 million (at 100%) recourse loan secured by Phase II of The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass in Louisville, KY. The venture anticipates securing new financing for the entire project to coincide with the December 2024 maturity of the $64.5 million (at 100%) loan secured by Phase I.

On May 4, 2023, CBL entered into a $32.0 million swap to fix the interest rate on a portion of its $360.0 million loan secured by open-air centers and outparcels. The swap fixed the rate to 7.3975% through the initial maturity in June 2027. Collectively, $212.0 million of the $360.0 million loan has been fixed at a weighted average interest rate of 7.02%.

CBL is cooperating with the foreclosure or conveyance of Westgate Mall in Spartanburg, SC, ($28.7 million) and Alamance Crossing East in Burlington, NC, ($41.1 million). In March, Alamance Crossing East was placed into receivership and deconsolidated.

DISPOSITIONS

During the second quarter 2023, CBL completed the sale of one land parcel generating $0.4 million in gross proceeds at CBL's share. Year-to-date through the second quarter end, CBL has grossed more than $5.3 million from dispositions.

DEVELOPMENT AND REDEVELOPMENT ACTIVITY

Detailed project information is available in CBL’s Financial Supplement for Q2 2023, which can be found in the Invest – Financial Reports section of CBL’s website at cblproperties.com.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Funds From Operations

FFO is a widely used non-GAAP measure of the operating performance of real estate companies that supplements net income (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP. The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") defines FFO as net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) excluding gains or losses on sales of depreciable operating properties and impairment losses of depreciable properties, plus depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures and noncontrolling interests. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures and noncontrolling interests are calculated on the same basis. We define FFO as defined above by NAREIT. The Company’s method of calculating FFO may be different from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs.

The Company believes that FFO provides an additional indicator of the operating performance of its properties without giving effect to real estate depreciation and amortization, which assumes the value of real estate assets declines predictably over time. Since values of well-maintained real estate assets have historically risen with market conditions, the Company believes that FFO enhances investors’ understanding of its operating performance. The use of FFO as an indicator of financial performance is influenced not only by the operations of the Company’s properties and interest rates, but also by its capital structure.

The Company believes FFO allocable to Operating Partnership common unitholders is a useful performance measure since it conducts substantially all of its business through its Operating Partnership and, therefore, it reflects the performance of the properties in absolute terms regardless of the ratio of ownership interests of the Company’s common shareholders and the noncontrolling interest in the Operating Partnership.

In the reconciliation of net income (loss) attributable to the Company’s common shareholders to FFO allocable to Operating Partnership common unitholders, located in this earnings release, the Company makes an adjustment to add back noncontrolling interest in income (loss) of its Operating Partnership in order to arrive at FFO of the Operating Partnership common unitholders.

FFO does not represent cash flows from operations as defined by GAAP, is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund all cash flow needs and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) for purposes of evaluating the Company’s operating performance or to cash flow as a measure of liquidity.

The Company believes that it is important to identify the impact of certain significant items on its FFO measures for a reader to have a complete understanding of the Company’s results of operations. Therefore, the Company has also presented adjusted FFO measures excluding these items from the applicable periods. Please refer to the reconciliation of net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders to FFO allocable to Operating Partnership common unitholders on page 8 of this news release for a description of these adjustments.

Same-center Net Operating Income

NOI is a supplemental non-GAAP measure of the operating performance of the Company’s shopping centers and other properties. The Company defines NOI as property operating revenues (rental revenues, tenant reimbursements and other income) less property operating expenses (property operating, real estate taxes and maintenance and repairs).

The Company computes NOI based on the Operating Partnership’s pro rata share of both consolidated and unconsolidated properties. The Company believes that presenting NOI and same-center NOI (described below) based on its Operating Partnership’s pro rata share of both consolidated and unconsolidated properties is useful since the Company conducts substantially all of its business through its Operating Partnership and, therefore, it reflects the performance of the properties in absolute terms regardless of the ratio of ownership interests of the Company’s common shareholders and the noncontrolling interest in the Operating Partnership. The Company's definition of NOI may be different than that used by other companies and, accordingly, the Company's calculation of NOI may not be comparable to that of other companies.

Since NOI includes only those revenues and expenses related to the operations of the Company’s shopping center properties, the Company believes that same-center NOI provides a measure that reflects trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, sales at the malls and operating costs and the impact of those trends on the Company’s results of operations. The Company’s calculation of same-center NOI excludes lease termination income, straight-line rent adjustments, amortization of above and below market lease intangibles and write-off of landlord inducement assets in order to enhance the comparability of results from one period to another. A reconciliation of same-center NOI to net income (loss) is located at the end of this earnings release.

Pro Rata Share of Debt

The Company presents debt based on the carrying value of its pro rata ownership share (including the carrying value of the Company’s pro rata share of unconsolidated affiliates and excluding noncontrolling interests’ share of consolidated properties) because it believes this provides investors a clearer understanding of the Company’s total debt obligations which affect the Company’s liquidity. A reconciliation of the Company’s pro rata share of debt to the amount of debt on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet is located at the end of this earnings release.

CBL defines NOI as property operating revenues (rental revenues, tenant reimbursements and other income), less property operating expenses (property operating, real estate taxes and maintenance and repairs). NOI excludes lease termination income, straight-line rent adjustments, amortization of above and below market lease intangibles and write-offs of landlord inducement assets. We include a property in our same-center pool when we own all or a portion of the property as of June 30, 2023, and we owned it and it was in operation for both the entire preceding calendar year and the current year-to-date reporting period ending June 30, 2023. New properties are excluded from same-center NOI, until they meet these criteria. Properties excluded from the same-center pool that would otherwise meet these criteria are properties which are under major redevelopment or being considered for repositioning, where we intend to renegotiate the terms of the debt secured by the related property or return the property to the lender.
