Weingarten Realty Increases Same Property NOI By 4.7% And Recurring FFO By 10.9%

Stocks in this article: WRI

Recurring FFO for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 was $0.51 per share or $63.3 million compared to $56.6 million or $0.46 per share for 2012, an increase of 10.9% on a per share basis. This significant increase in Recurring FFO over the prior year was primarily due to solid leasing demand resulting in an increase in occupancy and the savings from the redemption of preferred shares and refinancing of debt maturities offset by the impact of the successful disposition program. For the nine months, Recurring FFO was $183.6 million or $1.48 per share for 2013 compared to $170.9 million or $1.39 per share for 2012, a 6.5% increase on a per share basis.

A reconciliation between net income attributable to common shareholders to Reported FFO and Recurring FFO is listed on page 5 of the Company’s supplemental package.

Operating Results

Occupancy of the retail portfolio increased to 94.4% in the third quarter from 93.9% in the third quarter of 2012. Anchor spaces increased 0.7% to 97.9% and occupancy of small shop space (less than 10,000 square feet) increased 0.4% to 88.7% from the same quarter of the prior year.

Same Property Net Operating Income ("SPNOI") for retail properties increased a strong 4.7% for the quarter primarily due to continued strength in both renewals and new leases and the improvement in occupancy mentioned above. Year-to-date, SPNOI has increased 4.5%, which was ahead of the Company’s business plan.

The Company produced strong leasing results during the third quarter with 330 new leases and renewals, totaling about one million square feet. These transactions were comprised of 109 new leases and 221 renewals, which represent annualized revenues of $6.4 million and $11.4 million, respectively. The average rental rate increase on comparable new leases signed during the quarter was a solid 9.4%.

"The continued rise in occupancy and, to a lesser degree, strong rental rate increases has enabled us to post the excellent Same Property NOI growth for the quarter and the year. Our best in class operating platform and quality portfolio of properties has allowed us to sustain this improvement in operating results for seven consecutive quarters,” said Johnny Hendrix, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
