Raises 2022 guidance
Leased approximately 1.2 million square feet at 13.2% comparable blended cash leasing spreads
Acquired grocery-anchored Palms Plaza (Boca Raton, FL) for $35.8 million
Upsized revolving credit facility to $1.1 billion from $850 million

INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kite Realty Group Trust (NYSE: KRG), a premier owner and operator of high-quality, open-air grocery-anchored neighborhood and community centers, along with vibrant mixed-use assets, reported today its operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

“During the second quarter, KRG continued to build on its track record of operational outperformance,” said John A. Kite, Chairman and CEO. “The team leased approximately 1.2 million square feet at over 13% blended cash leasing spreads while improving upon the merchandising mix and further bolstering the durability of our cash flows. In addition, our signed-not-open NOI increased by $4 million to a total of $41 million. The vast majority of these contractual rents are scheduled to come online in the back half of this year and the first half of 2023. Based on this pattern of outperformance, we are increasing FFO, as adjusted guidance and our same-property NOI growth assumption.”

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

  • Net income attributable to common shareholders of $13.1 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $0.2 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, for the quarters ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
  • Generated NAREIT Funds From Operations of the Operating Partnership (FFO) of $109.4 million, or $0.49 per diluted share.
  • Generated FFO, as adjusted, of the Operating Partnership of $108.4 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, a 44% per share increase over the comparable period in 2021.
    • Excludes a positive impact of $1.0 million of prior period collection impact related to the recovery of cash and non-cash bad debt and accounts receivable in 2022.
  • Same Property Net Operating Income (NOI) increased by 3.8% (including legacy RPAI properties).

Second Quarter 2022 Portfolio Operations

  • Executed 206 new and renewal leases representing approximately 1.2 million square feet.
    • Cash leasing spreads of 49.1% on 26 comparable new leases, 8.0% on 119 comparable renewals, and 13.2% on a blended basis. Excluding option renewals, the blended cash spreads for comparable new and non-option renewal leases was 18.7%.
  • Operating retail portfolio annualized base rent (ABR) per square foot of $19.66 at June 30, 2022, a 6.4% increase year-over-year.
  • Retail portfolio percent leased of 93.8% at June 30, 2022, a sequential increase of 20 basis points.
  • Portfolio leased-to-occupied spread of 270 basis points, which equates to $41.0 million of signed-not-open NOI.

Second Quarter 2022 Capital Allocation Activity

  • Sold Plaza Del Lago (Chicago, IL), a 100,016 square foot neighborhood center, for $58.7 million representing a purchase price of $587 per square foot.
  • As previously disclosed, acquired the Sprouts and Total Wine building that adjoins KRG-owned MacArthur Crossing (Dallas / Fort Worth, TX) for a purchase price of $21.9 million.
  • Stabilized two development projects, Shoppes at Quarterfield (Baltimore, MD) and One Loudoun Downtown – Residential (Ashburn, VA), which are expected to generate $7.4 million of annual NOI.
  • The Company currently has five active development projects with future capital commitments of $80.1 million.

Subsequent Capital Allocation Activity

  • Acquired Palms Plaza (Boca Raton, FL) for a purchase price of $35.8 million. Palms Plaza is anchored by a specialty grocer generating approximately $1,300 per square foot in sales. This high-quality infill neighborhood center is located in the desirable, affluent Boca Raton community, and will be complementary to the Company’s significant Florida portfolio.

Balance Sheet Overview

  • As of June 30, 2022, the Company’s net debt to Adjusted EBITDA was 5.3x.
  • Subsequent to quarter end, upsized the Company’s revolving line of credit capacity to $1.1 billion from $850 million, which remained undrawn as of quarter end.
  • Subsequent to quarter end, issued a $300 million unsecured 7-year term loan due July 29, 2029, and fixed the interest rate for three years at approximately 3.95%. The net proceeds were used for the early repayment of the $200 million term loan scheduled to mature in 2023 with the balance to be applied to upcoming mortgage maturities.

2022 Earnings Guidance
The Company is updating its 2022 guidance for FFO, as adjusted, to $1.80 to $1.86 per diluted share from $1.74 to $1.80 per diluted share, based, in part, on the following key assumptions:

  • Increased same property NOI range to 3.50% to 4.50%, which represents a 125-basis point increase at the midpoint.
  • Decreased bad debt by 25 basis points to 1.00% of total revenues at the midpoint.
  • Any transaction activity is expected to be earnings neutral.

The following table reconciles the Company’s 2022 net income guidance range to the Company’s updated 2022 FFO, as adjusted, guidance range:

  Low High 
Net loss ($0.18) ($0.12)

Safe Harbor

This release, together with other statements and information publicly disseminated by us, contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Such statements are based on assumptions and expectations that may not be realized and are inherently subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which cannot be predicted with accuracy and some of which might not even be anticipated. Future events and actual results, performance, transactions or achievements, financial or otherwise, may differ materially from the results, performance, transactions or achievements, financial or otherwise, expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.

Currently, one significant factor that could cause actual outcomes to differ significantly from our forward-looking statements is the adverse effect of the current pandemic of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, including possible resurgences, variants and mutations, on the financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and performance of the Company and its tenants, the real estate market and the global economy and financial markets. Moreover, investors are cautioned to interpret many of the risks identified under the section titled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 and in the Company’s quarterly reports on Form 10-Q as being heightened as a result of the ongoing and numerous adverse impacts of COVID-19.

Additional risks, uncertainties and other factors that might cause such differences, some of which could be material, include but are not limited to: the risks associated with the merger with RPAI, including the integration of the businesses of the combined company, the ability to achieve expected synergies or costs savings and potential disruptions to the Company’s plans and operations; national and local economic, business, real estate and other market conditions, particularly in connection with low or negative growth in the U.S. economy as well as economic uncertainty (including the potential effects of inflation and increases in interest rates); the risk that our actual NOI for leases that have signed but not yet opened will not be consistent with expected NOI for leases that have signed but not yet opened; financing risks, including the availability of, and costs associated with, sources of liquidity; the Company’s ability to refinance, or extend the maturity dates of, the Company’s indebtedness; the level and volatility of interest rates; the financial stability of tenants; the competitive environment in which the Company operates, including potential oversupplies of and reduction in demand for rental space; acquisition, disposition, development and joint venture risks; property ownership and management risks, including the relative illiquidity of real estate investments, and expenses, vacancies or the inability to rent space on favorable terms or at all; the Company’s ability to maintain the Company’s status as a real estate investment trust for U.S. federal income tax purposes; potential environmental and other liabilities; impairment in the value of real estate property the Company owns; the attractiveness of our properties to tenants, the actual and perceived impact of e-commerce on the value of shopping center assets and changing demographics and customer traffic patterns; business continuity disruptions and a deterioration in our tenant’s ability to operate in affected areas or delays in the supply of products or services to us or our tenants from vendors that are needed to operate efficiently, causing costs to rise sharply and inventory to fall; risks related to our current geographical concentration of the Company’s properties in Texas, Florida, New York, Maryland, and North Carolina; civil unrest, acts of terrorism or war, acts of God, climate change, epidemics, pandemics (including COVID-19), natural disasters and severe weather conditions, including such events that may result in underinsured or uninsured losses or other increased costs and expenses; changes in laws and government regulations including governmental orders affecting the use of the Company’s properties or the ability of its tenants to operate, and the costs of complying with such changed laws and government regulations; possible short-term or long-term changes in consumer behavior due to COVID-19 and the fear of future pandemics; our ability to satisfy environmental, social or governance standards set by various constituencies; insurance costs and coverage; risks associated with cybersecurity attacks and the loss of confidential information and other business disruptions; other factors affecting the real estate industry generally; and other risks identified in reports the Company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“the SEC”) or in other documents that it publicly disseminates, including, in particular, the section titled “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, and in the Company’s quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

This Earnings Release also includes certain forward-looking non-GAAP information. Due to high variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projections of some of the information excluded from these estimates, together with some of the excluded information not being ascertainable or accessible, the Company is unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures without unreasonable efforts.

(1)“FFO of the Operating Partnership” measures 100% of the operating performance of the Operating Partnership’s real estate properties. “FFO attributable to common shareholders” reflects a reduction for the redeemable noncontrolling weighted average diluted interest in the Operating Partnership.
(2)Per share/unit amounts of components will not necessarily sum to the total due to rounding to the nearest cent.

Funds from Operations (“FFO”) is a widely used performance measure for real estate companies and is provided here as a supplemental measure of operating performance. The Company calculates FFO, a non-GAAP financial measure, in accordance with the best practices described in the April 2002 National Policy Bulletin of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), as restated in 2018. The NAREIT white paper defines FFO as net income (calculated in accordance with GAAP), excluding depreciation and amortization related to real estate, gains and losses from the sale of certain real estate assets, gains and losses from change in control, and impairment write-downs of certain real estate assets and investments in entities when the impairment is directly attributable to decreases in the value of depreciable real estate held by the entity.

Considering the nature of our business as a real estate owner and operator, the Company believes that FFO is helpful to investors in measuring our operational performance because it excludes various items included in net income that do not relate to or are not indicative of our operating performance, such as gains or losses from sales of depreciated property and depreciation and amortization, which can make periodic and peer analyses of operating performance more difficult. FFO excludes the 2021 gain on sale of the ground lease portfolios as these sales were part of our capital strategy distinct from our ongoing operating strategy of selling individual land parcels from time to time. FFO (a) should not be considered as an alternative to net income (calculated in accordance with GAAP) for the purpose of measuring our financial performance, (b) is not an alternative to cash flow from operating activities (calculated in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of our liquidity, and (c) is not indicative of funds available to satisfy our cash needs, including our ability to make distributions. The Company’s computation of FFO may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the term in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the current NAREIT definition differently than we do.

From time to time, the Company may report or provide guidance with respect to “FFO as adjusted” which starts with FFO, as defined by NAREIT, and then removes the impact of certain non-recurring and non-operating transactions or other items the Company does not consider to be representative of its core operating results including, without limitation, gains or losses associated with the early extinguishment of debt, gains or losses associated with litigation involving the Company that is not in the normal course of business, merger and acquisition costs, the impact on earnings from employee severance, the excess of redemption value over carrying value of preferred stock redemption, and the impact of prior period bad debt or the collection of accounts receivable previously written off (“prior period collection impact”), which are not otherwise adjusted in the Company’s calculation of FFO.

(1)Same Property NOI excludes properties that have not been owned for the full periods presented. However, due to the size of the RPAI portfolio acquired in the merger, the legacy RPAI properties have been deemed to qualify for the same property pool beginning in 2022 if they had a full first quarter of operations in 2021 within the legacy RPAI portfolio prior to the merger.
(2)Same Property NOI excludes (i) Glendale Town Center and Shoppes at Quarterfield, which were reclassified from active redevelopment into our operating portfolio in December 2021 and June 2022, respectively, (ii) the multifamily rental units at One Loudoun Downtown – Pads G & H, (iii) five active development and redevelopment projects, (iv) Arcadia Village and Pebble Marketplace, which were acquired subsequent to January 1, 2021, and (v) office properties and includes the legacy RPAI same property pool.
(3)Excludes leases that are signed but for which tenants have not yet commenced the payment of cash rent. Calculated as a weighted average based on the timing of cash rent commencement and expiration during the period.
(4)Includes non-cash activity across the portfolio as well as NOI from properties not included in the same property pool, including properties sold during both periods.

The Company uses same property NOI (“Same Property NOI”), a non-GAAP financial measure, to evaluate the performance of our properties. Same Property NOI is net income excluding properties that have not been owned for the full periods presented. However, due to the size of the Retail Properties of America, Inc. (“RPAI”) portfolio acquired in the merger with RPAI, which closed in October 2021, (the “Merger”), the legacy RPAI properties have been deemed to qualify for the same property pool beginning in 2022 if they had a full quarter of operations in 2021 within the legacy RPAI portfolio prior to the Merger. Same Property NOI also excludes (i) net gains from outlot sales, (ii) straight-line rent revenue, (iii) lease termination income in excess of lost rent, (iv) amortization of lease intangibles, and (v) significant prior period expense recoveries and adjustments, if any. When the Company receives payments in excess of any accounts receivable for terminating a lease, Same Property NOI will include such excess payments as monthly rent until the earlier of the expiration of 12 months or the start date of a replacement tenant. The Company believes that Same Property NOI is helpful to investors as a measure of our operating performance because it includes only the NOI of properties that have been owned for the full periods presented. The Company believes such presentation eliminates disparities in net income due to the acquisition or disposition of properties during the particular periods presented and thus provides a more consistent metric for the comparison of our properties. Same Property NOI includes the results of properties that have been owned for the entire current and prior year reporting periods.

In order to provide meaningful comparative information across periods that, in some cases, predate the Merger, all information regarding the performance of the same property pool is presented as though the Merger was consummated on January 1, 2021 (i.e., as though the properties owned by RPAI prior to the Merger that are included in our same property pool had been owned by the Company for the entirety of all comparison periods for which same property pool information is presented). NOI and Same Property NOI should not, however, be considered as alternatives to net income (calculated in accordance with GAAP) as indicators of our financial performance. The Company’s computation of NOI and Same Property NOI may differ from the methodology used by other REITs and, therefore, may not be comparable to such other REITs.

When evaluating the properties that are included in the same property pool, we have established specific criteria for determining the inclusion of properties acquired or those recently under development. An acquired property is included in the same property pool when there is a full quarter of operations in both years subsequent to the acquisition date. The properties acquired in the Merger with RPAI qualify for the same property pool beginning in 2022 if they had a full first quarter of operations in 2021 within the legacy RPAI portfolio prior to the Merger. Development and redevelopment properties are included in the same property pool four full quarters after the properties have been transferred to the operating portfolio. A redevelopment property is first excluded from the same property pool when the execution of a redevelopment plan is likely and we (a) begin recapturing space from tenants or (b) the contemplated plan significantly impacts the operations of the property. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, the same property pool excludes (i) Glendale Town Center and Shoppes at Quarterfield, which were reclassified from active redevelopment into our operating portfolio in December 2021 and June 2022, respectively, (ii) the multifamily rental units at One Loudoun Downtown – Pads G & H, (iii) five active development and redevelopment projects, (iv) Arcadia Village and Pebble Marketplace, which were acquired subsequent to January 1, 2021, and (v) office properties.

(1)Represents Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2022 (as shown in the table above) multiplied by four.
(2)Partner share of consolidated joint venture debt is calculated based upon the partner’s pro-rata ownership of the joint venture, multiplied by the related secured debt balance.

The Company defines EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, as net income before interest expense, income tax expense of the taxable REIT subsidiary, and depreciation and amortization. For informational purposes, the Company also provides Adjusted EBITDA, which it defines as EBITDA less (i) EBITDA from unconsolidated entities, (ii) gains on sales of operating properties or impairment charges, (iii) merger and acquisition costs, (iv) other income and expense, (v) noncontrolling interest EBITDA, and (vi) other non-recurring activity or items impacting comparability from period to period. Annualized Adjusted EBITDA is Adjusted EBITDA for the most recent quarter multiplied by four. Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA is the Company’s share of net debt divided by Annualized Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Annualized Adjusted EBITDA and Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA, as calculated by the Company, are not comparable to EBITDA and EBITDA-related measures reported by other REITs that do not define EBITDA and EBITDA-related measures exactly as we do. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Annualized Adjusted EBITDA do not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered alternatives to net income as an indicator of performance or as alternatives to cash flows from operating activities as an indicator of liquidity.

Considering the nature of our business as a real estate owner and operator, the Company believes that EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and the ratio of Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA are helpful to investors in measuring our operational performance because they exclude various items included in net income that do not relate to or are not indicative of the Company’s operating performance, such as gains or losses from sales of depreciated property and depreciation and amortization, which can make periodic and peer analyses of operating performance more difficult. For informational purposes, the Company also provides Annualized Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted as described above. The Company believes this supplemental information provides a meaningful measure of its operating performance. The Company believes presenting EBITDA and the related measures in this manner allows investors and other interested parties to form a more meaningful assessment of the Company’s operating results.
