Stocks in this article: PSB

PS Business Parks, Inc. (NYSE:PSB) reported operating results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013.

Funds from operations (“FFO”) were $41.9 million, or $1.26, as adjusted, per share for the three months ended December 31, 2013, a 1.6% per share increase from the three months ended December 31, 2012 of $39.3 million, or $1.24, as adjusted, per share. FFO was $159.4 million, or $4.95, as adjusted, per share for the year ended December 31, 2013, a 1.9% per share increase from the year ended December 31, 2012 of $154.2 million, or $4.86, as adjusted, per share. The increase in adjusted FFO per share for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013 over the same periods in 2012 was due to the increase in net operating income partially offset by an increase in preferred equity distributions as the Company replaced short-term debt with perpetual preferred equity combined with an increase in share count as a result of the November, 2013 common equity offering.

At the beginning of 2012, the Company put in place a Long-Term Equity Incentive Plan (“LTEIP”) designed to grant restricted stock units to management based on the Company’s ability to achieve certain defined goals over a four-year period. While the Company has continued to see improved operating metrics and delivered strong total shareholder returns over the past two years, the original targets under the LTEIP were based on an assumption of a strong economic recovery starting in 2012. Given the current pace of the economic recovery, management has determined that it is not probable that the targets under the LTEIP will be met. As such, the Company stopped recording amortization as of September 30, 2013 and recorded a reversal of all previously recorded LTEIP amortization of $6.9 million during the three months ended December 31, 2013. Additionally, to present comparative results, the reversal and all amounts originally expensed in prior periods in either cost of operations (for field leadership) or general and administrative expenses (for executive management) have been reflected as adjustments in the FFO and Property Operations tables below.
