INVESTMENT ACTIVITY
Expansions and Redevelopments
The Company, along with its best-in-class joint venture and business partners AvalonBay Communities, Inc. (AvalonBay), KETTLER, Trammell Crow Company (Trammell Crow) and Fore Property Company (Fore Property), continues to make progress on the execution of its active expansion and redevelopment projects.

Active Projects:
One Loudoun Downtown
During the quarter, the Company and KETTLER, its joint venture partner, advanced construction on the garages and foundation work for the mixed-use expansion of Pads G & H at its One Loudoun Downtown multi-tenant retail operating property located in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan statistical area (MSA). The Company anticipates frame construction to begin this spring. This expansion project consists of up to 70,000 square feet of commercial space and 378 one- and two-bedroom multi-family rental units, which will become One Loudoun's first apartment community, Vyne, and is anticipated to open in late spring 2021. The expansion project complements and enhances the Company's approximately 469,000 square foot mixed-use community anchor asset, One Loudoun Downtown, which boasted retail occupancy of 98.2% and office occupancy of 100.0% as of December 31, 2019 and holds a five-mile population of nearly 190,000, average household incomes of nearly $175,000 and sits in the county with the highest median income per capita in the United States with a projected five-year population growth rate of more than 8%. Underscoring the vibrancy of the existing mixed-use asset, One Loudoun Downtown held an annual holiday tree lighting ceremony on December 7, 2019 that attracted more than 7,000 visitors.

Carillon
During the quarter, the Company advanced grading and other early construction work at Carillon – phase one, its mixed-use redevelopment project located in the Washington, D.C. MSA. The Company and Trammell Crow, its joint venture partner for the roughly 100,000 square foot medical office building portion of the project, continue to receive inquiries from potential healthcare tenants, a percentage of which are under letter of intent (LOI) negotiation. These medical office facilities will be located adjacent to the University of Maryland Capital Region Medical Center, a teaching hospital that is currently under construction, and will complement the roughly 130,000 square foot balance of the commercial portion of the project, the retail component of which the Company has pre-leased 37% as of December 31, 2019. The Company continues to progress with Fore Property, its joint venture partner, on pre-construction activities for the multi-family component of the project, which will include approximately 351 multi-family rental units.

Circle East
The Company continues late stage lease negotiations with multiple leading regional and national retailers at its Circle East mixed-use project located in Towson, Maryland within the Baltimore MSA. During the fourth quarter, the Company signed Shake Shack to a 3,200 square foot lease at a prominent corner location in the 80,000 square foot dual-sided street level retail portion of the project. Subsequent to year end, the Company signed Ethan Allen to a 6,000 square foot lease at the adjacent corner location at the project. AvalonBay continues to expect initial tenant move-ins at the approximately 370 AvalonBay-owned multi-family rental units that also form a portion of the project in the first quarter of 2020. The Company expects to take delivery of the retail portion of the AvalonBay build-out in the first quarter of 2020.

Near-Term Projects:
The Company added two projects, site and building reconfiguration at The Shoppes at Quarterfield and pad development at Southlake Town Square, to its near-term expansion and redevelopment plans as detailed on page 9 in the quarterly supplemental information. Aggregating $11.0 to $12.5 million in projected net investment with projected returns of 11.5% to 15.5% and stabilization targeted in the first half of 2021, these projects typify the opportunities for concise lead-time capital deployment, short-term payback and accretive returns available within the Company's existing operating portfolio. As of December 31, 2019, the Company had pre-leased 62% of the project at The Shoppes at Quarterfield to LA Fitness and 100% of the project at Southlake Town Square to T-Mobile. Subsequent to year end, the Company leased the remaining 38% of the project at The Shoppes at Quarterfield to ALDI, making both new projects 100% pre-leased.

Future Projects – Entitled:
In order to enhance visibility on longer-term development opportunities embedded within the Company's current retail operating portfolio, the Company has added details on nine entitled but not commenced projects to page 10 in the quarterly supplemental information. These projects, which do not have a set start date, include entitlements for more than 4.0 million square feet of commercial GLA and 2,650 multi-family rental units. The Company anticipates expanding this project list and entitlement details as ongoing permitting efforts warrant in the coming quarters.

Dispositions
During 2019, the Company completed the dispositions of one single-user retail asset and one multi-tenant power center asset located in non-core markets totaling $44.8 million.  Additionally, the Company completed the sale of land and the rights to develop 22 residential units at One Loudoun Downtown for a gross sales price of $5.1 million.

Subsequent to year end, the Company completed the sale of one non-target multi-tenant power center asset for $13.9 million.

Acquisitions
During 2019, the Company closed on the acquisition of one multi-tenant, community center retail property in the Seattle MSA, one single-user parcel in the Dallas MSA and one land parcel in the Phoenix MSA for a total gross purchase price of $30.0 million.

Subsequent to year end, the Company acquired the fee interest in an existing multi-tenant, community center retail property for a gross purchase price of $55.0 million. In connection with this acquisition, the Company also assumed the lessor position in a ground lease with a shadow anchor.

BALANCE SHEET AND CAPITAL MARKETS ACTIVITY
As of December 31, 2019, the Company had approximately $1.6 billion of consolidated indebtedness with a weighted average contractual interest rate of 3.88%, a weighted average maturity of 4.7 years and a net debt to adjusted EBITDAre ratio of 5.4x.

During 2019, the Company executed on the following significant capital markets initiatives:

  • In June 2019, issued $100.0 million of 10-year 4.82% senior unsecured notes in a private placement transaction with certain institutional investors. The proceeds were used to repay borrowings on the Company's unsecured revolving line of credit;
  • In July 2019, entered into a term loan agreement with a group of financial institutions for a five-year $120.0 million unsecured term loan (Term Loan Due 2024) and a seven-year $150.0 million unsecured term loan (Term Loan Due 2026). The term loans bear interest at a rate of London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) plus a credit spread based on a leverage grid ranging from 1.20% to 1.70% for the Term Loan Due 2024 and 1.50% to 2.20% for the Term Loan Due 2026. Both term loans continue to bear interest at the lowest point of the leverage grid. In accordance with the term loan agreement, the Company may elect to convert to an investment grade pricing grid. The proceeds were used to repay borrowings on the Company's unsecured revolving line of credit and to prepay four mortgages with an aggregate principal balance of $107.7 million and a weighted average interest rate of 4.91%, incurring prepayment penalties of approximately $8.2 million; and
  • In July 2019, following this term loan fundraising, entered into agreements to swap $120.0 million of LIBOR-based variable rate debt to a fixed interest rate of 1.68% through July 2024 and $150.0 million of LIBOR-based variable rate debt to a fixed interest rate of 1.77% through July 2026.

Overall, these transactions contributed to lowering the Company's weighted average interest rate by 10 basis points year-over-year to 3.88% as of December 31, 2019.

2020 Guidance
The Company expects to generate net income attributable to common shareholders of $0.31 to $0.34 per diluted share in 2020. The Company also expects to generate Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders of $1.04 to $1.08 per diluted share in 2020, based, in part, on same store NOI growth guidance of 0.25% to 1.25% and on the following assumptions:

  • General and administrative expenses of $41 to $43 million;
  • Bad debt of 110 basis points of revenue (160 basis points of NOI) comprised of 65 basis points of revenue related to the Company's estimate for bad debt and unknown tenant fallout and 45 basis points of revenue related to the Company's estimate for potential fallout from Pier 1 Imports, Inc.; and
  • Acquisitions, property dispositions and capital markets transactions evaluated and executed opportunistically.

The following table reconciles the Company's reported 2019 Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders per diluted share to the Company's 2020 Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders per diluted share guidance range.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
As defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), an industry trade group, Funds From Operations (FFO) means net income computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), excluding (i) depreciation and amortization related to real estate, (ii) gains from sales of real estate assets, (iii) gains and losses from change in control and (iv) impairment write-downs of real estate assets and investments in entities directly attributable to decreases in the value of real estate held by the entity. The Company has adopted the NAREIT definition in its computation of FFO attributable to common shareholders. The Company believes that, subject to the following limitations, FFO attributable to common shareholders provides a basis for comparing its performance and operations to those of other real estate investment trusts (REITs). The Company believes that FFO attributable to common shareholders, which is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure, provides an additional and useful means to assess the operating performance of REITs. FFO attributable to common shareholders does not represent an alternative to (i) "Net income" or "Net income attributable to common shareholders" as an indicator of the Company's financial performance, or (ii) "Cash flows from operating activities" in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company's capacity to fund cash needs, including the payment of dividends.

The Company also reports Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders, which is defined as FFO attributable to common shareholders excluding the impact of discrete non-operating transactions and other events which the Company does not consider representative of the comparable operating results of its real estate operating portfolio, which is its core business platform. Specific examples of discrete non-operating transactions and other events include, but are not limited to, the impact on earnings from gains or losses associated with the early extinguishment of debt or other liabilities, litigation involving the Company, including costs to engage outside counsel related to litigation with former tenants, the impact on earnings from executive separation and the excess of redemption value over carrying value of preferred stock redemption, which are not otherwise adjusted in the Company's calculation of FFO attributable to common shareholders. The Company believes that Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders, which is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure, provides an additional and useful means to assess the operating performance of REITs. Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders does not represent an alternative to (i) "Net income" or "Net income attributable to common shareholders" as an indicator of the Company's financial performance, or (ii) "Cash flows from operating activities" in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company's capacity to fund cash needs, including the payment of dividends. Comparison of the Company's presentation of Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in definition and application by such REITs.

The Company also reports Net Operating Income (NOI), which it defines as all revenues other than (i) straight-line rental income (non-cash), (ii) amortization of lease inducements, (iii) amortization of acquired above and below market lease intangibles and (iv) lease termination fee income, less real estate taxes and all operating expenses other than lease termination fee expense and non-cash ground rent expense, which is comprised of straight-line ground rent expense and amortization of acquired ground lease intangibles for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018 and amortization of right-of-use lease assets and amortization of lease liabilities for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019. NOI consists of Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties. Same Store NOI represents NOI from the Company's same store portfolio consisting of 102 retail operating properties acquired or placed in service and stabilized prior to January 1, 2018. NOI from Other Investment Properties represents NOI primarily from (i) properties acquired or placed in service during 2018 and 2019, including Reisterstown Road Plaza, which was reclassified from active redevelopment into the Company's retail operating portfolio during 2018, (ii) the multi-family rental units at Plaza del Lago, a redevelopment project that was placed in service during the three months ended September 30, 2019, (iii) Circle East, which is in active redevelopment, (iv) One Loudoun Downtown – Pads G & H, which are in active development, (v) Carillon, which is in active redevelopment, (vi) properties that were sold or held for sale during 2018 and 2019, and (vii) the net income from the Company's wholly-owned captive insurance company. The Company believes that NOI, Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties, which are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, provide an additional and useful operating perspective not immediately apparent from "Net income" or "Net income attributable to common shareholders" in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses these measures to evaluate its performance on a property-by-property basis because they allow management to evaluate the impact that factors such as lease structure, lease rates and tenant base have on the Company's operating results. NOI, Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties do not represent alternatives to "Net income" or "Net income attributable to common shareholders" in accordance with GAAP as indicators of the Company's financial performance. Comparison of the Company's presentation of NOI, Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in definition and application by such REITs.

As defined by NAREIT, EBITDA for real estate (EBITDAre) means net income (loss) computed in accordance with GAAP, plus (i) interest expense, (ii) income tax expense, (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) impairment charges on investment property and (v) impairment charges on investments in unconsolidated affiliates if caused by a decrease in the value of depreciable property in the affiliate, plus or minus (i) gains from sales of investment property, including gains (or losses) on change in control, and (ii) adjustments to reflect the entity's share of EBITDAre of unconsolidated affiliates. The Company reports Adjusted EBITDAre, which excludes the impact of certain discrete non-operating transactions and other events such as the impact on earnings from executive separation. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDAre is useful because it allows investors and management to evaluate and compare the Company's performance from period to period in a meaningful and consistent manner in addition to standard financial measurements under GAAP. EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures and should not be considered alternatives to "Net income" or "Net income attributable to common shareholders" as indicators of the Company's financial performance. Comparison of the Company's presentation of EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in definition and application by such REITs.

Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDAre is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure and represents (i) the Company's total debt principal, which excludes unamortized premium, discount and capitalized loan fees, less (ii) cash and cash equivalents divided by (iii) Adjusted EBITDAre for the prior three months, annualized (Annualized Adjusted EBITDAre). The Company believes that this ratio is useful because it provides investors with information regarding its total debt principal net of cash and cash equivalents, which could be used to repay debt, compared to its performance as measured using Annualized Adjusted EBITDAre. Comparison of the Company's presentation of Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDAre to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in definition and application by such REITs.

(a) 

Includes $26,330 of accelerated depreciation recorded in connection with the write-off of assets taken out of service due to the demolition of existing structures at the Company's Carillon redevelopment during the year ended December 31, 2019.



(b) 

The Company adopted the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts' "NAREIT Funds From Operations White Paper – 2018 Restatement" effective January 1, 2019 on a retrospective basis. As a result, all gains on sale and impairments of real estate are excluded from FFO, whereas the Company previously only excluded gains on sale and impairments of depreciable investment properties. The Company restated FFO attributable to common shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2018 to exclude the gain on sale of non-depreciable investment property of $3,464. As this gain was previously excluded from Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders, there was no change to Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2018.



(c) 

Reflected as an increase within "General and administrative expenses" in the consolidated statements of operations.



(d) 

Primarily consists of the impact on earnings from litigation involving the Company, including costs to engage outside counsel related to litigation with former tenants, which is included in "Other (expense) income, net" in the consolidated statements of operations.
