CorEnergy Releases First Quarter 2014 Results

Stocks in this article: CORR

CorEnergy Infrastructure Trust, Inc. (NYSE: CORR) (“CorEnergy” or the “Company”) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

First Quarter Highlights and Subsequent Events

  • Declared first quarter 2014 dividend distribution of $0.129, payable on May 22, 2014
  • Reiterating annualized dividend guidance of no less than $0.52 per share – a 4% increase over the prior quarter
  • Completed two transactions in the first quarter, the Portland Terminal Facility acquisition and Black Bison transaction
  • Formally elected to be treated as a REIT for the 2013 tax year

“CorEnergy delivered an excellent first quarter by investing accretively, growing FFO and AFFO at a superior rate, increasing annualized dividend guidance by 4 percent and prudently managing our balance sheet,” said David Schulte, Chief Executive Officer of CorEnergy.

“Consistent with our disciplined growth strategy, we expanded our asset portfolio, closing two transactions in the first quarter. We also completed a highly successful follow-on equity offering. We are increasing our full-year outlook, reflecting the strength of CorEnergy’s business model and confidence around transaction execution.”

Quarterly Performance Review

CorEnergy reported total revenues of $10.0 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2014. A first quarter dividend of $0.129 was declared on April 30, 2014, and is payable on May 22, 2014. Total assets were $331.6 million and total stockholders' equity was $221.9 million as of March 31, 2014, compared to $283.9 million and $177.2 million, respectively, at Dec. 31, 2013. The increase in total assets and stockholders’ equity is primarily due to the acquisition and financing of the Portland Terminal Facility. Net income attributable to common stockholders was $2.1 million, or $0.07 per common share.

Because the Company now operates as a REIT, management believes that non-GAAP performance measures utilized by REITs, including Funds from Operations (“FFO”) and Adjusted Funds from Operations (“AFFO”), also provide useful insights into CorEnergy’s operational performance. AFFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, was $0.14 per share as compared to $0.13 per share for the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2013.

First Quarter Ended March 31, 2014 Financial Summary
        For the Three Month Period Ended March 31, 2014
        Total       Per Share
Net Income (attributable to CorEnergy Stockholders)       $ 2,105,159       $ 0.07
Funds From Operations (FFO)       $ 4,535,932       $ 0.15
Adjusted Funds From Operations (AFFO)       $ 4,201,785       $ 0.14
           

FFO and AFFO are non-GAAP measures presented in accordance with the guidelines for calculation and reporting issued by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts. FFO represents net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of depreciable operating property, real estate-related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs or loan origination costs) and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company considers FFO an important supplemental measure of operating performance that is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties. CorEnergy defines AFFO as FFO plus transaction costs, amortization of debt issuance costs, deferred leasing costs, above-market rent, and certain costs of a nonrecurring nature, less maintenance, capital expenditures (if any), amortization of debt premium and other adjustments as deemed appropriate. Management uses AFFO as a measure of long-term sustainable operational performance.
