Office Properties Income Trust (Nasdaq: OPI) today announced its financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020.

Christopher Bilotto, President and Chief Operating Officer of OPI, made the following statement:

"We are pleased with OPI’s continued solid performance throughout 2020. Fourth quarter Normalized FFO per share and Same Property Cash Basis NOI growth both exceeded expectations and CAD increased by 6.5% year over year. Monthly rent collections continued to average approximately 99% through the fourth quarter and we have collected nearly 79% of granted rent deferrals. Our leasing activity showed solid performance throughout the year, completing two million square feet of activity with an average lease term of over seven years and a roll-up in rents of 6.9%.

Heading into 2021, our asset and property management teams remain focused on proactive tenant engagement to drive leasing and retention, along with management of property operations as tenants continue to advance their re-entry plans. With strong liquidity, including full availability on our $750 million revolving credit facility, we are well positioned to execute on growth activity through property acquisitions and select development and repositioning opportunities across our portfolio."

  • Net loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 was $1.7 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to net income of $65.0 million, or $1.35 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 includes a $71.6 million, or $1.49 per diluted share, gain on sale of real estate, partially offset by an $8.2 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, loss on impairment of real estate.

  • Normalized funds from operations, or Normalized FFO, and cash available for distribution, or CAD, for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 were $61.8 million, or $1.28 per diluted share, and $42.3 million, or $0.88 per diluted share, respectively, compared to Normalized FFO and CAD for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 of $66.4 million, or $1.38 per diluted share, and $39.7 million, or $0.83 per diluted share, respectively.

  • Same Property cash basis net operating income, or Cash Basis NOI, increased 5.1% for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2019. The increase in Same Property Cash Basis NOI is due to an increase in cash received from contractual rents of $3.0 million as a result of free rent expiring and roll-ups in rent related to leasing activity in 2020, as well as a $2.2 million decrease in operating expenses, mainly driven by cost savings initiatives in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, offset by a decline in parking revenue of $0.8 million as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Leasing activity for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 was as follows:

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

OPI presents certain "non-GAAP financial measures" within the meaning of applicable rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, including FFO, Normalized FFO, CAD, NOI, Cash Basis NOI, Same Property NOI and Same Property Cash Basis NOI. These measures do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered alternatives to net income (loss) as indicators of OPI’s operating performance or as measures of OPI’s liquidity. These measures should be considered in conjunction with net income (loss) as presented in OPI's consolidated statements of income (loss). OPI considers these non-GAAP measures to be appropriate supplemental measures of operating performance for a real estate investment trust, or REIT, along with net income (loss). OPI believes these measures provide useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain historical amounts, such as depreciation and amortization expense, they may facilitate a comparison of OPI’s operating performance between periods and with other REITs and, in the case of NOI, Cash Basis NOI, Same Property NOI and Same Property Cash Basis NOI reflecting only those income and expense items that are generated and incurred at the property level may help both investors and management to understand the operations of OPI's properties.

Please see the pages attached hereto for a more detailed statement of OPI’s operating results and financial condition and for an explanation of OPI’s calculation of FFO, Normalized FFO, CAD, NOI, Cash Basis NOI, Same Property NOI and Same Property Cash Basis NOI and a reconciliation of those amounts to amounts determined in accordance with GAAP.

OPI is a REIT focused on owning, operating and leasing properties primarily leased to single tenants and those with high credit quality characteristics such as government entities. OPI is managed by the operating subsidiary of The RMR Group Inc. (Nasdaq: RMR), an alternative asset management company that is headquartered in Newton, Massachusetts.

Loss on impairment of real estate for the year ended December 31, 2020 represents an adjustment of $2,954 to reduce the carrying value of four properties to their estimated fair value less costs to sell during the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Loss on impairment of real estate for the three months ended December 31, 2019 includes an adjustment of $9,739 to reduce the carrying value of one property to its estimated fair value less costs to sell and a $250 loss on impairment of real estate related to the sale of three properties, offset by the recovery of impairment losses recorded in previous periods of $1,839 related to the sale of four properties. Loss on impairment of real estate for the year ended December 31, 2019 also includes adjustments totaling $11,479 to reduce the carrying value of 10 properties to their estimated fair value less costs to sell and $2,626 of losses on impairment of real estate related to the sale of 35 properties during the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

(2)

Acquisition and transaction related costs for the three months and year ended December 31, 2020 represent costs related to an acquisition opportunity OPI terminated in November 2020. Acquisition and transaction related costs for the year ended December 31, 2019 consist of post-merger activity costs incurred in connection with OPI's acquisition of Select Income REIT on December 31, 2018 in a merger transaction and other related transactions.

(3)

Gain on sale of real estate for the year ended December 31, 2020 represents a $10,855 net gain on the sale of 10 properties. Gain on sale of real estate for the three months ended December 31, 2019 represents a $71,593 net gain on the sale of seven properties. Gain on sale of real estate for the year ended December 31, 2019 also includes a $33,538 net gain on the sale of three properties during the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

(4)

Loss on equity securities, net represents a realized loss for the year ended December 31, 2019 from the sale of OPI's 2.8 million shares of The RMR Group Inc., or RMR Inc., common stock on July 1, 2019.

(5)

Loss on early extinguishment of debt for the year ended December 31, 2020 includes prepayment fees related to the repayment of two mortgage notes, write offs of the unamortized portion of certain discounts and issuance costs resulting from the early repayment of debt and a loss related to the settlement of a mortgage note receivable in connection with a property OPI sold in 2016. Loss on early extinguishment of debt for the year ended December 31, 2019 includes write offs of the unamortized portion of certain discounts and issuance costs resulting from the early repayment of debt.

(6)

OPI calculates FFO and Normalized FFO as shown above. FFO is calculated on the basis defined by The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, which is net income (loss), calculated in accordance with GAAP, plus real estate depreciation and amortization of consolidated properties and its proportionate share of the real estate depreciation and amortization of unconsolidated joint venture properties, but excluding impairment charges on real estate assets, any gain or loss on sale of real estate and equity securities, as well as certain other adjustments currently not applicable to OPI. In calculating Normalized FFO, OPI adjusts for the other items shown above and includes business management incentive fees, if any, only in the fourth quarter versus the quarter when they are recognized as an expense in accordance with GAAP due to their quarterly volatility not necessarily being indicative of OPI’s core operating performance and the uncertainty as to whether any such business management incentive fees will be payable when all contingencies for determining such fees are known at the end of the calendar year. FFO and Normalized FFO are among the factors considered by OPI’s Board of Trustees when determining the amount of distributions to OPI’s shareholders. Other factors include, but are not limited to, requirements to maintain OPI's qualification for taxation as a REIT, limitations in OPI’s credit agreement and public debt covenants, the availability to OPI of debt and equity capital, OPI’s expectation of its future capital requirements and operating performance and OPI’s expected needs for and availability of cash to pay its obligations. Other real estate companies and REITs may calculate FFO and Normalized FFO differently than OPI does.

(7)

OPI calculates CAD as shown above. OPI defines CAD as Normalized FFO minus recurring real estate related capital expenditures and other non-cash and non-recurring items. CAD is among the factors considered by OPI's Board of Trustees when determining the amount of distributions to its shareholders. Other real estate companies and REITs may calculate CAD differently than OPI does.

(8)

Non-cash expenses include equity based compensation, adjustments recorded to capitalize interest expense and amortization of the liability for the amount by which the estimated fair value for accounting purposes exceeded the price OPI paid for its former investment in RMR Inc. common stock in June 2015. This liability is being amortized on a straight line basis through December 31, 2035 as an allocated reduction to business management fee expense and property management fee expense, which are included in general and administrative and other operating expenses, respectively.

The calculations of NOI and Cash Basis NOI exclude certain components of net income (loss) in order to provide results that are more closely related to OPI’s property level results of operations. OPI calculates NOI and Cash Basis NOI as shown above. OPI defines NOI as income from its rental of real estate less its property operating expenses. NOI excludes amortization of capitalized tenant improvement costs and leasing commissions that OPI records as depreciation and amortization expense. OPI defines Cash Basis NOI as NOI excluding non-cash straight line rent adjustments, lease value amortization, lease termination fees, if any, and non-cash amortization included in other operating expenses. OPI calculates Same Property NOI and Same Property Cash Basis NOI in the same manner that it calculates the corresponding Cash Basis NOI amounts, except that it only includes same properties in calculating Same Property NOI and Same Property Cash Basis NOI. OPI uses NOI, Cash Basis NOI, Same Property NOI and Same Property Cash Basis NOI to evaluate individual and company-wide property level performance. Other real estate companies and REITs may calculate NOI, Cash Basis NOI, Same Property NOI and Same Property Cash Basis NOI differently than OPI does.

OPI recorded a liability for the amount by which the estimated fair value for accounting purposes exceeded the price OPI paid for its former investment in RMR Inc. common stock in June 2015. A portion of this liability is being amortized on a straight line basis through December 31, 2035 as a reduction to property management fee expense, which is included in property operating expenses.

(3)

For the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, Same Property NOI and Same Property Cash Basis NOI are based on properties OPI owned continuously since October 1, 2019, and exclude properties classified as held for sale and properties undergoing significant redevelopment, if any, and three properties owned by two unconsolidated joint ventures in which OPI owns 51% and 50% interests.

(4)

For the year ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, Same Property NOI and Same Property Cash Basis NOI are based on properties OPI owned continuously since January 1, 2019, and exclude properties classified as held for sale and properties undergoing significant redevelopment, if any, and three properties owned by two unconsolidated joint ventures in which OPI owns 51% and 50% interests.

Warning Concerning Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains statements that constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other securities laws. Also, whenever OPI uses words such as "believe", "expect", "anticipate", "intend", "plan", "estimate", "will", "may" and negatives or derivatives of these or similar expressions, OPI is making forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based upon OPI’s present intent, beliefs or expectations, but forward-looking statements are not guaranteed to occur and may not occur. Actual results may differ materially from those contained in or implied by OPI’s forward-looking statements as a result of various factors. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, some of which are beyond OPI's control. For example:

  • Mr. Bilotto's statements about OPI's operating results, rent collections, leasing activity and roll-ups in rents may imply that OPI will continue to have similar and better results and positive leasing activity in future periods. However, OPI's operating results, rent collections and ability to realize positive leasing activity depend on various factors, including market conditions, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and tenants' demand for OPI's properties, the timing of lease expirations and OPI's ability to successfully compete for tenants, among other factors. As a result, OPI may not realize positive operating results, rent collections and leasing activity and rent roll-ups in the future and OPI's operating results, rent collections and leasing activity could decline and OPI may realize rent roll-downs in the future,

  • Mr. Bilotto's statements about OPI's focus on proactive tenant engagement and management of property operations as its tenants continue to advance their re-entry plans may imply that OPI will continue to have strong tenant retention and occupancy and that OPI's tenants will re-enter its properties in the future. However, if the COVID-19 pandemic and the current economic conditions continue or worsen, OPI’s tenants may be significantly adversely impacted, which may result in additional tenants seeking relief from their rent obligations, tenants being unable to pay rent, tenants terminating their leases or tenants not renewing their leases or renewing their leases for less space. Further, under those conditions, tenants may delay re-entry or may utilize less space upon re-entry and later seek to reduce their leased space or terminate or not renew their leases. In addition, leases for 3,657,000 square feet are subject to expire by December 31, 2021, and OPI expects tenants that lease 2,614,000 of that square feet will not renew their leases. OPI may not be able to re-lease that space and it may take an extended period to identify replacement tenants and negotiate and enter new lease agreements for that space and OPI may realize rent roll-downs with respect to any such new leases,

  • Mr. Bilotto states that OPI has strong liquidity, including full availability under its revolving credit facility. This may imply that OPI will maintain low borrowings under its revolving credit facility. However, OPI's revolving credit facility allows OPI to borrow, repay and reborrow funds under that facility, subject to satisfying conditions. As a result, OPI may borrow funds under its revolving credit facility in the future and it is highly likely that it will do so in furtherance of its business and operations,

  • Mr. Bilotto's statements regarding OPI being well positioned to execute on its growth activity through property acquisitions and select development and repositioning opportunities across its portfolio may imply that OPI will be able to continue to execute on its investment strategies and create value from those investments. However, OPI may not be able to identify and successfully negotiate and complete acquisitions and it may not realize its target returns on investments it may make, and

  • OPI has entered into an agreement to acquire a property in Boston, MA for $27.0 million, excluding acquisition related costs, and an agreement to sell a property located in Huntsville, AL for a sales price of $39.0 million, excluding closing costs. These transactions are subject to conditions. Those conditions may not be satisfied and these transactions may not occur, may be delayed or the terms may change.

The information contained in OPI’s filings with the SEC, including under "Risk Factors" in OPI’s periodic reports, or incorporated therein, identifies other important factors that could cause OPI’s actual results to differ materially from those stated in or implied by OPI’s forward-looking statements. OPI’s filings with the SEC are available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.

You should not place undue reliance upon forward-looking statements.

Except as required by law, OPI does not intend to update or change any forward-looking statements as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
