In July, EastGroup acquired Siempre Viva Distribution Center in San Diego. The value-add property, which contains 115,000 square feet, was purchased for $14 million. Upon acquisition, the building was occupied by the seller under a short-term lease that expired during the third quarter. EastGroup has successfully re-leased the multi-tenant distribution center, which will be 100% occupied during the first quarter of 2019.

(1)This value-add project, which was recently developed by the seller, was acquired by EastGroup on 12/12/17 during the lease-up phase.

Subsequent to quarter-end, the Company executed a lease with a future tenant for a 160,000 square foot build-to-suit development project in Houston. The projected total cost for development of the 100% pre-leased World Houston 45 is $18 million.

Also subsequent to quarter-end, EastGroup closed the acquisition of 29 acres of development land in San Antonio for $3 million. The land is expected to accommodate the future development of four buildings totaling 370,000 square feet; the Company anticipates initiating the first phase of development on this land in 2019.

DIVIDENDS
EastGroup declared cash dividends of $.72 per share in the third quarter of 2018, which represented a 12.5% increase over the previous quarter's dividend. The third quarter dividend, which was paid on October 15, 2018, was the Company's 155th consecutive quarterly cash distribution to shareholders.  The Company has increased or maintained its dividend for 26 consecutive years and has increased it 23 years within that period, including increases in each of the last seven years.  The Company's payout ratio of dividends to FFO was 62% for the quarter.  The annualized dividend rate of $2.88 per share yielded 3.1% on the closing stock price of $93.47 on October 17, 2018.

FINANCIAL STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY
EastGroup continues to maintain a strong and flexible balance sheet.  Debt-to-total market capitalization was 24.0% at September 30, 2018.  For the third quarter, the Company had interest and fixed charge coverage ratios of 5.77x and a debt to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization for real estate (EBITDAre) ratio of 5.33x.

During the third quarter, EastGroup issued and sold 316,102 shares of common stock under its continuous equity program at an average price of $96.56 per share, providing net proceeds to the Company of $30 million.

(1) Includes properties which have been in the operating portfolio since 1/1/17 and are projected to be in the operating portfolio through 12/31/18 (annual same property pool); includes 34,219,000 square feet.


(2) Includes properties which have been in the operating portfolio since 10/1/17 and are projected to be in the operating portfolio through 12/31/18 (quarterly same property pool); includes 36,712,000 square feet.


(3) Beginning on 1/1/18, the Cash basis for 2018 and 2017 excludes straight-line rent adjustments and amortization of above/below market rent intangibles. In previous years, this metric excluded straight-line rent adjustments only. See the Definitions section of this press release for additional information about the change in this operating metric.

DEFINITIONS
The Company's chief decision makers use two primary measures of operating results in making decisions:  (1) property net operating income (PNOI), defined as Income from real estate operations less Expenses from real estate operations (including market-based internal management fee expense) plus the Company's share of income and property operating expenses from its less-than-wholly-owned real estate investments, and (2) funds from operations attributable to common stockholders (FFO).  EastGroup defines FFO consistent with the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts' definition, as net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), excluding gains or losses from sales of depreciable real estate property and impairment losses, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

PNOI and FFO are supplemental industry reporting measurements used to evaluate the performance of the Company's investments in real estate assets and its operating results. The Company believes that the exclusion of depreciation and amortization in the industry's calculations of PNOI and FFO provides supplemental indicators of the properties' performance since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions.  PNOI and FFO as calculated by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled but differently calculated measures for other REITs.  Investors should be aware that items excluded from or added back to FFO are significant components in understanding and assessing the Company's financial performance.

EastGroup sometimes refers to PNOI from Same Properties as "Same PNOI" in this press release and the accompanying reconciliation. Same Properties is defined as operating properties owned during the entire current period and prior year reporting period. Properties developed or acquired are excluded until held in the operating portfolio for both the current and prior year reporting periods. Properties sold during the current or prior year reporting periods are excluded.

The Company's chief decision makers also use Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization for Real Estate (EBITDAre) in making decisions. EBITDAre is defined as Net Income, excluding gains or losses from sales of depreciable real estate property, plus interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.

In a press release dated January 17, 2018, the Company, along with a group of other leading industrial REITs (the Industrial REIT Group), announced that the Industrial REIT Group has agreed on a consistent methodology to calculate various non-GAAP property operating metrics. These non-GAAP metrics include common methodologies for determining property stabilization and occupancy as well as reporting of comparative changes in rental rates and tenant retention rates. In addition, the Industrial REIT Group has agreed on the definition of the annual pool of properties (same property pool) used in calculating same property net operating income growth (same property NOI). Specifically, the annual same property pool will only include properties held as of the beginning of the prior calendar year which were stabilized (according to the agreed upon definition) throughout both periods presented.

Beginning in the first quarter of 2018, all members of the Industrial REIT Group agreed to calculate these non-GAAP metrics based on the agreed upon methodologies. These conforming changes do not have a material impact on EastGroup's non-GAAP metrics for periods prior to 2018. The actual results for 2018 and outlook for 2018 included in this earnings release are based on the revised methodologies.

As a result of the efforts of the Industrial REIT Group, EastGroup made the following conforming changes, effective January 1, 2018:

  • The Company transfers development and value-add properties to the operating portfolio at the earlier of 90% occupancy or one year after shell completion/value-add vacancy occurrence. EastGroup's previous policy was to transfer properties at the earlier of 80% occupancy or one year after shell completion.
  • The calculation of the Company's rental rate change no longer excludes leases for space which has been vacant for more than 24 months. All leases are now included, with the exception of short-term leases with terms less than 12 months and leases of first generation space in properties acquired or developed by EastGroup.
  • The calculation of same property NOI on the cash basis excludes straight-line rent adjustments and amortization of above/below market rent intangibles. In prior periods, EastGroup included the amortization of above/below market rent intangibles in its calculation of same property NOI on the cash basis.

CONFERENCE CALL
EastGroup will host a conference call and webcast to discuss the results of its third quarter and review the Company's current operations on Friday, October 19, 2018, at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time.  A live broadcast of the conference call is available by dialing 1-877-876-9176 (conference ID: EastGroup) or by webcast through a link on the Company's website at www.eastgroup.net.  If you are unable to listen to the live conference call, a telephone and webcast replay will be available until Friday, October 26, 2018.  The telephone replay can be accessed by dialing 1-800-839-9138, and the webcast replay can be accessed through a link on the Company's website at www.eastgroup.net.
