PS Business Parks, Inc. Reports Results for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2020 and Acquires a 246,000 Square Foot Multi-Tenant Industrial Park Located in Alexandria, Virginia, for $46.3 Million

·21 min read

PS Business Parks, Inc. (NYSE:PSB) reported operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and announced that it acquired a 246,000 square foot multi-tenant industrial park located in Alexandria, Virginia, for $46.3 million.

Operating Results for the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2020

Net income allocable to common shareholders for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $30.6 million, or $1.11 per diluted common share, and $97.7 million, or $3.55 per diluted common share, respectively. Net operating income ("NOI") attributable to the Company’s Same Park portfolio (defined below) was $67.5 million and $202.8 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, representing a decrease of 0.3% and an increase of 0.2% over the same periods in 2019, respectively. Net income and NOI for both the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2020 were negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on certain of the Company’s customers.

The Company also reports NOI on a cash basis, which excludes non-cash rental income such as amortization of deferred rent receivable and other non-cash items, and also excludes rents that have been deferred or abated during the period. Same Park Cash NOI was $66.2 million and $198.1 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, each representing a decrease of 1.1% over the same periods in 2019. The decrease in Same Park Cash NOI for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was a result of 0.8% cash rental income growth offset by 5.3% growth in adjusted cost of operations, while the decrease for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was the result of a 0.2% decline in cash rental income and 2.1% growth in adjusted cost of operations.

The following table details the change in Same Park rental income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 (in thousands):

Non-cash rental income includes amortization of deferred rent receivable (net of write-offs), in-place lease intangible, tenant improvement reimbursement, and lease incentive intangible.

Additional detail on Same Park NOI and Same Park Cash NOI for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 is provided in the Property Operations–Same Park Portfolio section below.

Funds from Operations ("FFO"), Core FFO, and Funds Available for Distribution ("FAD")

FFO for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $1.55 per share and $4.85 per share, respectively, representing decreases of 9.2% and 5.5% from the same periods in 2019. FFO is a non-GAAP measure defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts and generally represents GAAP net income before (i) real estate depreciation and amortization expense, (ii) gains or losses on sales of operating properties, and (iii) land and impairment charges on real estate assets.

Core FFO, which the Company defines as FFO excluding the impact of (i) charges related to the redemption of preferred stock and (ii) other nonrecurring income or expense items as appropriate, was $1.61 and $4.91 per share for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company accelerated the amortization of $1.7 million of stock compensation expense as a result of the retirement of its President and Chief Executive Officer, Maria Hawthorne. Separately, the Company also incurred non-capitalizable demolition costs of $0.3 million related to its multifamily development in Tysons, Virginia. The accelerated amortization of stock compensation expense and the non-capitalizable demolition costs are included in FFO but excluded for Core FFO purposes due to the nonrecurring nature of these expenses. Additional information is included on the Company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q.

FAD for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $48.3 million and $142.1 million, respectively, representing a decrease of 6.0% and 5.2% from the same periods in 2019. The decreases in FAD were largely attributable to rent deferrals (net of amounts repaid) and abatements of $0.8 million and $5.4 million, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, as the Company does not include rents deferred or abated in its computation of FAD. FAD is a non-GAAP measure that represents Core FFO adjusted to (i) deduct recurring capital improvements and capitalized tenant improvements and lease commissions and (ii) remove certain non-cash income or expenses, such as amortization of deferred rent receivable and stock compensation expense.

FFO, Core FFO, and FAD are not substitutes for GAAP net income. Other real estate investment trusts ("REITs") may compute FFO, Core FFO, and FAD differently, which could inhibit comparability. The Company believes its presentations of FFO, Core FFO, and FAD assist investors and analysts in analyzing and comparing the operating and financial performance between reporting periods.

Acquisition Activity

Subsequent to September 30, 2020, the Company completed the acquisition of Pickett Industrial Park, a 246,000 square foot infill multi-tenant industrial park located in Alexandria, Virginia, for a total purchase price of $46.3 million. The park consists of three buildings with suites ranging from 7,000 to 75,000 square feet and was 100% occupied at closing.

The park is strategically located inside the Capital Beltway in the rapidly redeveloping Van Dorn Corridor, has immediate access to I-95, I-495, and I-395 freeways and is in close proximity to the Pentagon, Fort Belvoir, and the U.S. Capital. This acquisition is complementary to the Company’s existing Northern Virginia industrial and flex portfolio totaling 3.0 million square feet.

Leasing Production

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company executed leases on 2.0 million and 5.6 million square feet, respectively, compared to 2.0 million and 5.3 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively. The Company also reported that it entered into a 10-year lease on the 288,000 square foot single-tenant industrial building at its Hathaway Business Park located in its Los Angeles sub-market, which is included in the lease production stats for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2020. The lease commenced in October 2020 with cash rental rate growth of 36.1% over the prior lease which expired April 30, 2020. Weighted average cash rental rate growth on leases executed during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, was 5.2% and 5.9%, respectively, while average net effective rent1 growth was 18.7% and 16.4% for the same periods, respectively. Average lease term of the leases executed during the three months ended September 30, 2020 was 4.3 years, with associated average transaction costs (tenant improvements and leasing commissions) of $3.46 per square foot. For comparative purposes, average lease term and transaction costs on leases executed in the same period of 2019 were 3.9 years and $3.80 per square foot, respectively.

1 Net effective rent represents average rental payments for the term of a lease on a straight-line basis, excluding operating expense reimbursements.

Property Operations–Same Park Portfolio

The Company believes that evaluation of the Same Park portfolio, defined as all properties owned and operated as of September 30, 2020 that were acquired prior to January 1, 2018, provides an informative view of how the Company’s portfolio has performed over comparable periods. As of September 30, 2020, the Same Park portfolio consisted of 25.7 million rentable square feet, or 93.5% of the 27.5 million rentable square feet in the Company’s total portfolio, and excluded the Company’s 95.0% interest in a 395-unit multifamily property.

The following table presents the unaudited operating results of the Company’s Same Park facilities for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 (in thousands, except per square foot amounts):

Cash Rental Income represents rental income excluding Non-Cash Rental Income (defined below). Included in the calculation of Same Park Cash Rental Income are (a) lease buyout income of $0.3 million and $0.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and $0.8 million and $1.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and (b) accounts receivable write-offs of $0.2 million and $0.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and $1.4 million and $0.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Cash rental income does not include deferred and abated rental income of $2.0 million and $0 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and $6.5 million and $0 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

(2)

Non-Cash Rental Income represents amortization of deferred rent receivable, amortization of above and below market rents, net, and amortization of lease incentives and tenant improvement reimbursements. Same Park Non-Cash Rental Income is presented net of deferred rent receivable write-offs of $0.3 million and $0.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and $2.6 million and $0.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

(3)

Adjusted Cost of Operations, as presented above, excludes stock compensation expense for employees whose compensation expense is recorded in cost of operations, which can vary significantly period to period based upon the performance of the Company.

(4)

The Company utilizes NOI, a non-GAAP financial measure, to evaluate the operating performance of its business parks. The Company defines NOI as rental income less Adjusted Cost of Operations. The Company believes NOI assists investors in analyzing the performance of its real estate by excluding (i) corporate overhead (i.e., general and administrative expense) because it does not relate to the direct operating performance of the real estate, (ii) depreciation and amortization expense because it does not accurately reflect changes in the fair value of the real estate, and (iii) stock compensation expense because this expense item can vary significantly from period to period and thus impact comparability across periods.

(5)

The Company utilizes Cash NOI to evaluate the cash flow performance of our business parks, and we believe investors utilize this metric for the same purpose. The Company defines Cash NOI as Cash Rental Income less Adjusted Cost of Operations.

(6)

NOI margin is computed by dividing NOI by rental income.

(7)

Cash NOI margin is computed by dividing Cash NOI by Cash Rental Income.

(8)

Revenue per occupied square foot is computed by dividing rental income for the period by weighted average occupied square feet for the same period. Revenue per occupied square foot for the three and nine month periods is annualized.

(9)

Revenue per Available Square Foot (RevPAF) is computed by dividing rental income for the period by weighted average available square feet for the same period. RevPAF for the three and nine month periods is annualized.

COVID-19 Pandemic/Rent Collections Update

The COVID-19 pandemic has had and is expected to continue to have a significant impact on our operations and capital plans. During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company granted $1.7 million of deferred rent and $0.3 million of rent abatement. Through the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company had granted rent relief to 388 customers (approximately 11.0% of total customers based on rental income) including $5.5 million of rent deferral and $1.2 million of rent abatement. As of October 26, 2020, the Company collected $1.3 million, or 98.3%, of the scheduled repayments of COVID-19 related rent deferrals billed through September 30, 2020.

During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company wrote-off $0.3 million of accounts receivable, which is in-line with the $0.3 million written-off during the three months ended September 30, 2019. Also during the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company wrote-off deferred rent receivables of $0.3 million, which is roughly in-line with the $0.1 million written-off during the three months ended September 30, 2019. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company wrote-off accounts receivable and deferred rent receivable of $1.5 million and $2.7 million, respectively, compared to $0.9 million and $0.4 million, respectively, during the same period in 2019.
