Retail Value Inc. (NYSE: RVI) today announced operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.
Results for the Quarter
Third quarter net loss attributable to common shareholders was $69.0 million, or $3.48 per diluted share as compared to net income of $72.3 million, or $3.79 per share, in the year-ago period. The period-over-period decrease in net income is primarily attributable to reduced rental income and increased impairment charges stemming from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the dilutive effect of asset sales offset by reduced interest expense and debt extinguishment costs.
Third quarter operating funds from operations attributable to common shareholders ("Operating FFO" or "OFFO") was $14.6 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, compared to $23.1 million, or $1.21 per diluted share, in the year-ago period. The period-over-period decrease in OFFO is primarily attributable to the same factors as above.
Sold two properties, Riverdale Village and Newnan Crossing (Lowe’s), aggregating $85.6 million; $69.7 million of mortgage debt was repaid in October 2020.
The Continental U.S. leased rate was 90.7% at September 30, 2020 as compared to 89.3% at June 30, 2020. The increase is primarily due to the impact of the asset sold in the third quarter.
The Puerto Rico leased rate was 86.3% at September 30, 2020 as compared to 85.9% at June 30, 2020. The increase is primarily due to new leasing activity which included 12 new leases for approximately 53,000 square feet partly offset by the impact of tenant lease expirations.
Key Quarterly Operating Results
The following metrics are as of September 30, 2020:
Shopping Center Count
Gross Leasable Area (thousands)
Base Rent PSF
Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic
The impact to the portfolio as of October 31, 2020 is as follows:
% of Tenants open and operating (pro rata average rent)
% of Second quarter rent paid
% of Third quarter rent paid
% of October rent paid
As of October 31, 2020, approximately 97% of the Company’s tenants (based on average base rents) were open for business, up from a low of 34% in early April. In Puerto Rico, while 96% of the Company’s tenants are open, most remain open subject to significant capacity and operating restrictions.
Further, as of October 31, 2020, the additional impact of the COVID-19 pandemic for the entire Company is as follows:
Tenants paid approximately 72% of second quarter 2020 rents, 86% of third quarter 2020 rents and 84% of October 2020 rents.
The Company had reached deferral arrangements with tenants representing approximately 9% of second quarter 2020 rents and 4% of third quarter 2020 rents.
The Company granted abatements to tenants representing approximately 5% of second quarter 2020 rents and 0.5% of third quarter 2020 rents.
In addition, during the third quarter of 2020 the Company’s rental revenue and NOI were reduced by $6.1 million of uncollectible revenue primarily related to reserves associated with cash-basis tenants as well as the impact of lease modification accounting, both triggered by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Company’s COVID-19 pandemic response remains at the forefront of our property operations objectives. As tenants ramped up their in-store operations, the Company worked to facilitate curbside and online purchase pick-up, continued with the Company’s social media and property level promotional programs, and worked to promote social distancing and CDC protocols among shopping center patrons through signage and other measures. Our property operations teams continued to maintain heightened cleaning and disinfection procedures in accordance with CDC guidelines and worked diligently to monitor the compliance of vendors’ operations with our Vendor COVID Operating Protocol.

Funds from Operations ("FFO") is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure used as a standard in the real estate industry and is a widely accepted measure of real estate investment trust ("REIT") performance. Management believes that both FFO and Operating FFO provide additional indicators of the financial performance of a REIT. The Company also believes that FFO and Operating FFO more appropriately measure the core operations of the Company and provide benchmarks to its peer group.
FFO is generally defined and calculated by the Company as net income (loss) (computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP’)) adjusted to exclude (i) gains and losses from disposition of real estate property and related investments, which are presented net of taxes, if any, (ii) impairment charges on real estate property and related investments and (iii) certain non-cash items. These non-cash items principally include real property depreciation and amortization of intangibles. The Company’s calculation of FFO is consistent with the definition of FFO provided by NAREIT. The Company calculates Operating FFO by excluding certain non-operating charges and income. Operating FFO is useful to investors as the Company removes non-comparable charges and income to analyze the results of its operations and assess performance of the core operating real estate portfolio. Other real estate companies may calculate FFO and Operating FFO in a different manner.
The Company also uses net operating income ("NOI"), a non-GAAP financial measure, as a supplemental performance measure. NOI is calculated as property revenues less property-related expenses. The Company believes NOI provides useful information to investors regarding the Company’s financial condition and results of operations because it reflects only those income and expense items that are incurred at the property level and, when compared across periods, reflects the impact on operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs and acquisition and disposition activity on an unleveraged basis.
FFO, Operating FFO and NOI do not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash needs and should not be considered as alternatives to net income computed in accordance with GAAP as indicators of the Company’s operating performance or as alternatives to cash flow as a measure of liquidity. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in this release herein.
