Earnings Highlights and Summary

American Homes' total revenues increased 6.7% to $242.8 million for Q4 2017 from $227.6 million for Q4 2016, primarily driven by continued strong acquisition and leasing activity, as the Company's average leased portfolio grew to 46,511 homes for the reported quarter compared to 44,772 homes for the prior year's same quarter. American Homes' revenue numbers were slightly lower by $0.41 million from analysts' estimates.

American Homes' net loss attributable to common shareholders totaled $22.0 million, or $0.08 per share, for Q4 2017 compared to net income attributable to common shareholders of $2.4 million, or $0.01 per share, for Q4 2016. The decline in the reported quarter earnings was primarily attributable to the redemption of the Series A and Series B participating preferred shares through a conversion into Class A common shares.

American Homes' core Funds from Operations (FFO) attributable to common shareholders was $89.4 million, or $0.26 per share, for Q4 2017 compared to $75.9 million, or $0.26 per share, for Q4 2016. The Company's adjusted FFO was $79.8 million, or $0.23 per share unit, for the reported quarter compared to $67.7 million, or $0.23 per share, for the prior year's same quarter. American Homes' FFO numbers met Wall Street's estimates of $0.23 per share.

American Homes' total revenues increased 9.3% to $960.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2017, from $878.9 million for FY16. Revenue growth was primarily driven by continued strong acquisition and leasing activity.

For FY17, American Homes' net loss attributable to common shareholders totaled $22.1 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared to a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $33.5 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for FY16.

American Homes' Core FFO attributable to common shareholders was $327.0 million, or $1.02 per share, for FY17 compared to $282.1 million, or $0.97 unit, for FY16. The Company's adjusted FFO was $287.0 million, or $0.90 per share, for FY17 compared to $242.5 million, or $0.84 per share, for FY16. This improvement was primarily attributable to significant increases in rental revenue driven by a larger number of leased properties and higher rental rates.

Operating Results

During Q4 2017, American Homes' core Net Operating Income (NOI) for its total portfolio increased 5.9% to $136.8 million compared to $129.1 million for Q4 2016, primarily due to growth in rental income resulting from a larger number of leased properties. The Company's core revenues from Same-Home properties increased 2.1% to $159.5 million in the reported quarter compared to $156.2 million for the prior year's same quarter.
