Equity Residential Reports Strong Results

Equity Residential (NYSE: EQR) today reported results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2013. All per share results are reported as available to common shares on a diluted basis.

“For 2013, we currently expect to deliver same store revenue growth of 4.5%, very much in line with our original expectations,” said David J. Neithercut, Equity Residential’s President and CEO. “In the long term, favorable demographics will generate demand for housing in our markets that will not be met with new supply and we should enjoy strong growth for many years. In the short term, new supply will produce modest negative revenue growth in Washington, D.C., partially offsetting continued strong growth across many of our other markets and resulting in expected portfolio wide same store revenue growth of 3% to 4% in 2014.”

Third Quarter 2013

FFO (Funds from Operations), as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), for the third quarter of 2013 was $0.71 per share compared to $0.92 per share in the third quarter of 2012. The difference is due primarily to the $70.0 million Archstone termination fee that the company recognized in the third quarter of 2012.

For the third quarter of 2013, the company reported Normalized FFO of $0.73 per share compared to $0.73 per share in the same period of 2012. The following items impacted Normalized FFO per share in the quarter:
  • the positive impact of approximately $0.04 per share from higher same store net operating income (NOI);
  • the positive impact of approximately $0.28 per share from the Archstone properties, offset by the negative impact of approximately $0.28 per share from 2012 and 2013 disposition activity and common share issuance in connection with the company’s purchase of Archstone; and
  • the negative impact of approximately $0.04 per share from higher interest expense, general and administrative expenses and other items.

Normalized FFO begins with FFO and eliminates certain items that by their nature are not comparable from period to period or that tend to obscure the company’s actual operating performance. Merger expenses and prepayment penalties are not included in the company’s Normalized FFO. A reconciliation and definition of Normalized FFO are provided on pages 26 and 29 of this release and the company has included guidance for Normalized FFO on page 27 of this release.
