See the "Glossary" section of this press release for the definition of these measures, which are not calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the U.S. ("GAAP"). See "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures" for reconciliations of these measures to their most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP.

 

Same Store NOI – For the Same Store portfolio of 36,469 homes, fourth quarter 2016 Same Store NOI increased 9.7% year-over-year on Same Store revenue growth of 4.9% and a decrease in Same Store operating expenses of 2.4%.  As a result, Core NOI margin increased to 63.6% in the fourth quarter of 2016 from 60.7% in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Same Store revenues – Year-over-year Same Store revenue growth of 4.9% was driven by higher rents and other property income, partially offset by lower occupancy.

Same Store operating expenses – Same Store operating expenses declined 2.4% year-over-year, driven primarily by lower personnel and turnover costs, partially offset by higher property taxes.

Glossary:

Average monthly rent represents the average of the contracted monthly rent for occupied properties in an identified population of homes over the course of the relevant period and reflects rent concessions amortized over the life of the related lease.

Average occupancy for an identified population of homes represents (i) the number of days that the homes available for lease in such population were occupied, divided by (ii) the total number of available days in the measurement period for the homes in that population of homes.

Core NOI margin for an identified population of homes is calculated by dividing NOI by total revenues, net of resident recoveries attributable to such population.

Net effective rent growth for any home represents the difference between the monthly rent from an expiring lease and the monthly rent from the next lease, in each case, net of any amortized concessions. Leases are either renewal leases, where our current resident chooses to stay for a subsequent lease term, or a new lease, where our previous resident moves out and a new resident signs a lease to occupy the same home.

NOI is a non-GAAP measure often used to evaluate the performance of real estate companies. We define NOI for an identified population of homes as rental revenues and other property income less property operating and maintenance expense (which consists primarily of property taxes, insurance, homeowners' association fees (when applicable), market-level personnel expenses, repairs and maintenance, leasing costs and marketing).  NOI excludes: interest expense; depreciation and amortization; general and administrative expense; property management expense; impairment and other; acquisition costs; (gain) loss on sale of property; and interest income and other miscellaneous income and expenses.  NOI is not used as a measure of our liquidity and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or loss or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP.  Our NOI may not be comparable to the NOI of other companies due to the fact that not all companies use the same definition of NOI.  Accordingly, there can be no assurance that our basis for computing this non-GAAP measure is comparable with that of other companies.

Same Store or "Same Store portfolio" includes, for a given reporting period, homes that have been stabilized (defined as homes that have (i) completed an upfront renovation and (ii) entered into at least one post-renovation Invitation Homes lease) for at least 90 days prior to the first day of the prior-year measurement period and excludes homes that have been sold and homes that have been designated for sale but have not yet entered into a written sale agreement during such reporting period.  Same Store portfolios are established as of January 1st of each calendar year.  Therefore, any home included in the Same Store portfolio will have satisfied the conditions described in clauses (i) and (ii) above prior to October 3rd of the year prior to the first year of the comparison period.  We believe presenting information about the portion of our portfolio that has been fully operational for the entirety of a given reporting period and its prior year comparison period provides investors with meaningful information about the performance of our comparable homes across periods and about trends in our organic business.

Same Store operating expense is a non-GAAP measure representing property operating and maintenance expense attributable to our Same Store portfolio and is defined as Property operating and maintenance expenses, excluding Property operating and maintenance expenses attributable to non-Same Store homes.

Same Store revenue is a non-GAAP measure representing the revenue for a given period attributable to our Same Store portfolio and is defined as total revenues, excluding revenues generated by non-Same Store homes

Total homes or total portfolio refers to the total number of homes we own, whether or not stabilized, and excludes any properties previously acquired in purchases that have been subsequently rescinded or vacated.
